Although some may not be happy with the hiring of Dubas (which is completely unfathomable considering he is considered to be one of if not the greatest up and coming hockey mind right now), I'm sure nobody has the audacity and stupidity to not rejoice at the firing of the "capologist" Loiselle, who did nothing for the good of the Maple Leafs, but instead burdened them with terribly built contracts, and Poulin.... what did he do again?
As for the Booth signing, again, there is absolutely no down-side to bringing him aboard. He has the potential to score 20 goals, and buys time for some of the younger guys (Nylander, Leivo) to marinate in the minors. Overall, a great day for Leafs Nation, and one that could be a great impact in the short term and long term!
1 day, 13 hours ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
https://twitter.com/BarDown/status/489820627894018048 Pretty sad that no good goalies are coming out of Toronto. Mason is the best?? Really?? Although with that line-up you don't even need a goalie! lol
6 days, 17 hours ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
@Xxxxxnew I'm counting shootout/overtime losses too.
6 days, 19 hours ago on Maple Leafs re-sign Peter Holland to 2-year, $1.55 million deal
@Xxxxxnew Simple... when you lose more games than you win, you tend to get out scored. Plus, we did out score the opposition in the shortened season.

@Mcost61 Poor Henny, he's having a tough time coming up with questions lol
@mike_84 They don't get ALL their ideas from here.
If anything could help him look better it's a Leafs jersey ;)
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@Bruffins @Burntheboats @FrycersGhost I agree, just making a joke :) I honestly think they'll finish top three in our conference next year.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Mike Santorelli signed by the Maple Leafs to 1-year, $1.5 million contract
@Bruffins @FrycersGhost Poulin next summer: " Our 4th line could never gain chemistry after Bodie broke his hand at camp, hence why we finished last in our conference."
@skiingallday He will be on our third line.... with the Marlies.
@Bruffins Deryk Engelland. $3Mx3 for pure truculence.
@Eye of the Tiger That is a nasty third line. Teams would hate playing against them.
@RandomScrub @Burntheboats http://www.livefyre.com/profile/15422559/ Never mind, if he were banned then all his posts would be deleted.
@RandomScrub @Burntheboats K thanks, but then again I did read some where in a different thread today that he texted some poster saying HI to us?
@RandomScrub @Burntheboats Are you sure?
@RandomScrub @Burntheboats I think so, if you try to tag him to anything it doesn't work. And he hasn't posted anything in a while. EDIT: Maybe he deleted his account?
So did Greg Fenton get the banhammer? It's about time.
@leafersutherland Not for long!
@Komas Taberle @Mitch_S2 You'd sell yourself to Columbus for Johansen? Now here's a Leafs fan boys!
@Komas Taberle 1st line centre? lol
@Loric76 "Kontiola is a 29-year-old who was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in 2004 and played a dozen games with the Blackhawks in 2007-2008, registering five assists and, in that small sample, putting up great possession stats. In two AHL seasons, Kontiola scored 140 points in 159 (regular season plus playoff) games, before heading to the KHL, where he has scored 152 points in 204 games over the past four seasons, the last three with Chelyabinsk Traktor. He had 14 points in 16 games playing for Finland at the Olympics and in the World Championships.
With that track record, it's possible that Kontiola could contribute some offence for the Maple Leafs but, as a 29-year-old who has barely seen NHL action, he could also be a spare part. The good news is that, signed to a contract for $1.1-million for one season, he's a low-risk investment. If he wins a spot in the lineup and contributes, they can work on an extension; if he doesn't, no big deal."
Sounds like low risk- high reward at its best!
@Bruffins I'm disappointed in you. Traitor!
@TheCanucksnaphook @Burntheboats To burn it?
In an attempt to cheer Phook up, I will post this: (Just pretend that is a Leafs jersey and if you can't do that look at how sad he is to be a Duck ;) )
@Loric76 I've had Phaneuf of your jokes!
@Armchair GM Kontiola for Premier?
SHANNY FOR PRIME MINISTER!
@mtommy @Burntheboats He was up and down a few times.
@Mcost61 I hate him.
So excited for the season to start! This new bottom six has much more skill, much more sandpaper, and is much younger! https://twitter.com/Dale_Lamontagne/status/484781933269106688
Bound for a bounce-back year. https://twitter.com/briancrd/status/484782764668239872
@Great Dane Neither will slip to 30th overall, sorry to burst your bubble!
@Bruffins The summer is too long!!!!
@Loric76 Some guys just end up slipping through the cracks; it has happened before and will happen again.
It's sad that we even offered Bolland that much.
@dlb Mad I'm pretty sure that is some sort Greek mythological character? Half goat and half man? lol

2 weeks, 6 days ago on Petri Kontiola Signs with Maple Leafs on a 1-year, $1.1 million deal
Although just a tiny sample size, Kontiola has a career 68.9 faceoff %. Won 31 out of 45. Could be Randy's new go-to faceoff guy, and actually has some offensive skill.
@RandomScrub What happens if they can't cut down enough cap space?
@Doit4Dougie I'm fully addicted to MLHS.
@rickpearce76 @Burntheboats It would certainly take pressure off Kessel and JVR.
@Dewy Keon Hogturd @RealKyper: #Leafs sign David Legwand to 5 year $25 million dollar deal. Includes a full NMC.
@rickpearce76 I love the strides they've made in their bottom 6. It seems like there is no more room for the facepunchers, and the 4th line will actually get minutes this year.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs’ Tim Gleason to be bought out
@Jordan29 making a lot of sense today. Not sure what to make of it. Was his account hacked? lol
@ShiftyD Yes. The Marlies.
Alright, goodnight guys, hopefully I wake up tomorrow and see we've traded a 3rd for Stamkos ;)
3 weeks, 3 days ago on James Reimer Requests a Trade
@whalz @ALMO89 @Murph2417 Yeah, I think he could fit in on a third line with D'amigo and Holland just fine. Him and Jerry flying down the wings would be something.
@whalz @Burtonboy @Murph2417 Robert's gym is overrated, many gyms out there that do exactly the same.
@ALMO89 @Murph2417 Cheap tickets so I can see him live before he makes it big ;)
@lukethenuke @Burtonboy @Murph2417 I don't think I've ever seen a european so happy to be drafted by the leafs. Although he is sort of Canadian.
@whalz @Murph2417 Kid's a beauty.
@Burtonboy HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... And some of us thought the Gunnar trade was bad.
@Alec Brownscombe @Cloud09 @TuckerForPunishment Hey moderators, we might have someone banworthy ;)
Yeah, what do you guys expect as a return? Fucking Gagner didn't get a single point with the Lightning, and Crombeen's a 4th liner.
@Murph2417 " Don't worry, if we treat you like shit, we will try to trade you within 3 years of your trade request"
@Dewy Keon Hogturd Why are you watching CNN?
@4evrblue Unless it's a 1st or a 2nd that's a brutal trade.
@whalz They have Stamkos, Fillpula, Johnson, etc. Doubt they'd want him, and doubt he'd want them.
@Dewy Keon Hogturd Or the black eye Yzerman gave him?
@Zep2 Except the 2nd rounder could have been a 3rd if he hadn't rotted on the 4th line for all those games.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Draft Day Two Wrap Up: Gunnarsson for Polak, offensive focus to Leafs’ draftees
Nylander was actually born in Calgary and lived in North America till he was 14, so I guess you could say he's Canadian ;)
3 weeks, 4 days ago on (Draft Day Two Mashup) Willie Nylie
There is our obligatory late round Swede! Welcome to the Leafs Pierre Engvall!
@RandomScrub @Burntheboats Your welcome.
ANOTHER FUCKING NON-CANADIAN!!!
@DeclanK Make up your mind MSM!!!
3 weeks, 5 days ago on 2014 NHL Draft News & Notes
@ingy56 He just wants Nonis to hear that so he can offer JVR+Kessel+8th for the 1st
I am so nervous, I would like for the leafs to move up to 1st, but I don't want them to take Ekblad, and they can't give up JVR, why not Bozak instead?
First of all, Canada isn't a city, second of all, we have the heritage classic. It's like every time Tim opens his mouth he says something really stupid. https://twitter.com/Zeisberger/status/481848475999420418
4 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes
@Mcost61 Meanwhile Nonis is sitting somewhere eating a burger and fries with Mason Raymond and his agent.
How can a 3rd line centre who just suffered a severe injury ask for a 7-8 year deal for over $5M!?!? Ridiculous. I guess Carlyle really inflated his confidence!
PLEASE STOP TALKING! https://twitter.com/News1130Sports/status/481460542876688384
@Loric76 And I'd be perfectly happy if that happens. Although for the right price I'd try to keep Ranger, Bolland, and Kuli.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Bob McKenzie’s 2014 NHL Draft Rankings + Mashup
@Loric76 That's a very SHORT extension.
@Anthony Petrielli @Burntheboats No interest in Fabbri? If it weren't for his size I think he'd go top 5.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes
Hey AP, if they stay a 8th, who do you think they should pick?
@ShiftyD @mike_84 Don't forget the Hart!
@TheCanucksnaphook I feel like I've seen this before. Hmmm.
@Mitch_S2 Honestly I'd do it in a heartbeat.
@The_Polish_Cannon Seems to be during a stoppage in play, but considering some of the goals he let in last year, I'm not sure ;)

@Jmessih Exactly, marry a Leaf instead.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Burntheboats @DARF24 Lol just joking. There's no way in hell that trade would go through anyways.
@DARF24 Awesome! Another player who scored the SCF winner! Lets get him! The last one turned out great!
@Jay_Berg I'm just addressing the people who think and hope that it will happen. It doesn't make sense and I don't think after playing 21 minutes a night Carlyle will want to move him to forward.
1 month ago on (Thursday Mashup) Silly Season
So you guys who think it's a grand idea to move Gardiner to forward because he is good offensively and can skate well, then you must think we should move Kulemin to defence because he is good defensively and doesn't skate as well. It is the most ridiculous argument I have ever seen.
@Jordan29 You can't trust 99% of the rumors out there, but here is one I heard and its pretty believable... its an E4! Kessel+Phaneuf+Reimer+8th overall for the 1st overall!
