    2018 Off-Season Trades / Signings / News

    I just wanted to comment on the Nylander 6 year $6.9 Million deal. What a mess the Leafs have created by signing Tavares. I live in the Toronto area, so I see/hear the comments. Leaf fans, either don't understand, or refuse to believe, what's going on here. All the Tavares contract has done is upped the value of the rest of the team. Every contract now, will be based on Tavares. Marner can ask for $10 Million and Matthews $12 Million, instead of having to settle for bridge contracts. I have witnesses that can back me on this, when I first heard Tavares signed with the Leafs, I said, "Wow! Why did the Leafs sign him? Now they'll have to pay Marner, Matthews, and Nylander more". I noticed Morgan Reilly is having a great year too. Defensemen are over paid, so he can ask for $10 Million now. The Leafs don't have a plan, they're running their team like it's 2003-04. I hear they'll trade Nylander in the off season. The fans are going to demand a first line Defenseman, but honestly, what can they get other than draft picks? They can't add any more big contracts. Leave it to the Leafs to screw up a once in a lifetime opportunity.
  2. If we're going to ruin our draft position, may a well keep winning! Let's go boys!

    I would think the players probably read message boards and social media.
  4. The timing is prefect for Stevie becoming our next GM. Holland signed a 2 year deal, Stevie can advise in Tampa for a year, work with the Wings for a year to analyze the organization, then take over for Kenny who becomes Senior VP.

    Zetterberg's status in 2 years. MOD WARNING PAGE 6

    If a team is trapped in cap hell, it's Toronto. That Tavares deal is awful! The Leafs are stuck building around him now, despite having Matthews, Marner, and Nylander. Also, the other day I saw Jake Gardiner say he should be getting Ryan Ellis money, ha! The Leafs better win the Cup in 2 years, or they're screwed!

    No More Hockeytown At Center Ice?

    I'm ok with the new center ice look. Hockeytown was The Joe, Yzerman, McCarty, Shanahan, Fedorov, Lidstrom, Osgood, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, etc.. It's a new team in a new arena, so the next era has an opportunity to make their own identity.

    A Friendly Reminder, Politics are PROHIBITED

    Oh good, no politics. I had to block someone I've known for years, on social media and my phone, because he wouldn't stop arguing with me about politics. I tell people we mostly just vote based on our jobs anyway, so it's pointless to argue about politics.

    Yzerman vs Fedorov. Which one was better?

    Yzerman, but I'm glad they were both on our side.

    They need defensemen, unless they get lucky, I don't know how they'll get them. The Leafs may have rebuild too fast, if that makes sense. They're out of a good drafting position now. I watched most of the Leafs-Bruins series, and I wasn't impressed with how the Leafs played in their own zone. I would have expected, if Babcock is this great coach, he would have had his defensemen play better positional hockey. I'm starting to wonder if the Leafs will only be a 105 point team, who's all offense, and won't get to that next level.

    I don't like that Tavares deal in Toronto. As mentioned, I live in the Toronto area, people here are excited, but I don't think that was very smart. Before Tavares, they would have had to lose either Matthews, Marner, or Nylander, to keep the other two. Now they have to lose two of them with Tavares. Tavares is now the guy they're building around. Just like that, their long term plans changed. The Leafs didn't need another forward, they need defensemen.

    6/22 GDT - 2018 Entry Draft

    We'll see who we get in the 2nd round, but already training camp will be fun before next season.

    6/22 GDT - 2018 Entry Draft

    I don't know much about Zadina, because I figured we'd draft a defenseman so I was looking at the defensemen in this draft, but I'm glad to see everyone excited about the Zadina pick. Maybe with our 2nd pick this round we can grab a guy on D?

    Franzen to LTIR

    I've never forgotten Roberts punching Frazen in the head his first game back from a concussion. I hope that scum bag feels guilty about it.

    I saw a Sporting News mock draft, they have us taking Brady Tkachuk, ha!

    Yeah on his elite prospect page, it says he's out for the season with a concussion. I'd stay away from him as well. However, I haven't watched any games, and only learned about these prospects on Saturday when we were awarded the 6th pick, heh.
