    10/11 GDT - Maple Leafs at Red Wings - 7:30 PM ET

    Kronwall is old and slow I get it but if we want any of these young forwards to have a chance we need some guys who can move the puck. Kronwall can move the puck. He's always been a good passer. I'm all for having young guys in the lineup and I've given into the fact it's happening right in front of my face but these young guys can't get better on their own. Green, Kronwall, Daley and even ( I cringe) Ericcson will help these guys along. Abby is in no mans land right now. He could be a very effective 3/4th line checker but he's paid like a guy who should score 20 goals. Won't happen. Jimmy isn't getting traded. He's in the last year of his deal and he will probably be gone at the end of the year unless a team has emergency goalie issues. Nyquist better start doing something quick or he's going to end up on the bench, he's been totally invisible and isn't really tradeable unless we Vegas wants to make a Tatar deal again There are a million Glendennings out there. Could care less either way about that guy.

    We are just a terrible passing team. It's horrible. Short passes. Nope. Long passes. Nope.

    10/7 GDT - Red Wings @ Kings - 10:30 PM EST

    If Ehn is going to stay up can we please move him up to the 3rd line and have Abdelkader down to the 4th with Helm and Glen. One of the keys to this season is going to be Kenny's ability to move Helm or Abdlekader at the deadline which probably will never happen because both have been here forever and Abby is from Michigan. Love these guys, love what they've done for the franchise but neither of them are very good.

    10/4 GDT - Red Wings vs Blue Jackets - 7:30 PM EST

    Daley was trash on that final goal. Glen stayed with his man and Daley gave him 15 feet of space. That was one of the worst played games i've seen in a long time. What a mess. No passing, No flow...by both teams

    I hope some of these kids play so good it's impossible to send them back down.

    2018-2019 Opening Night Roster - Dedicated to BlueAdams!

    Are you leveling us ? This guy literally had no chance of making this team and played himself right onto it.

    Mike Green Officially Signed *Mod Warning Page 4*

    You can't just say " take away the PP points". Green is good on the PP and generates points from it. Daley isn't and doesn't. Different skill sets.

    Vanek Signs 1yr. $3M

    The guy gets points falling out of bed in the morning. He will be good for 40-50. Price is right. Term is right. Onward

    You don't have to be an expert these days to know that an 18 year old kid who has had 2 concussions is now considered high risk to get more. It's open knowledge for everyone. Stop sounding like Roger Goodell. I don't claim to be an expert by any means. Hell I coach minor hockey but we are required to take concussion courses before the season starts and all the information is laid out right there for us. Even with 9 and 10 year old kids we don't mess around with it. If we think they rang their bell we keep them off the ice, they go to the clinic and if a doctor even remotely thinks the kid has symptoms hes out a minimum 2 weeks and then reassessed. For the sake of Boqvist I obviously hope he doesn't have concussions issues and wherever he plays whether it's Detroit or somewhere else I hope he has a long healthy career. That being said I take Hughes or Bouchard over him at this point.

    Bruised goods? At this point I would rather draft a kid who just had knee surgery this spring than draft a young kid who has had more than 1 concussion.
  11. puckbags


    Of course it does. It's common knowledge that the more concussions you've had the higher the RISK of getting another one. That's CTE 101 More than ever? He has concussion issues. You can still want him, hell I want him but I wouldn't take him at 6.

    He was the guy I hoped we got but at that age with two concussions I would be steering clear. Hughes is who I would love to see unless anyone projected above him doesn't get taken.

    It's inevitable (unfortunately)

    I'm curious as to why OV is a piece of sh-i-t as you say? Plays hard, plays clean, has fun, scored lots of goals and from everything i've seen and heard he's respected by the other players on and off the ice. Care to elaborate? I'm not sure who the Tampons, Guppies, Quacks or Dives are but as long as the Leafs don't win the cup I will be fine with anyone else.

    Anyone who has played hockey knows that playing center is a harder position than the wing. More skating, having to come deeper into your own end, more defensive responsibility etc.... With Z's "advanced" age to me it makes sense to move him to the wing.

    I Love Larkin

    First off with you it's hard to tell if you're serious or if this some April Fool's joke but in any context Larkin couldn't hold Stevie Y's jockstrap. I will give Larkin credit for his increased role this year but at the end of the day 15-16 goals isnt good enough. He should be a 30 goal scorer. End or story.
