    2018 Off-Season Trades / Signings / News

    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!

    Boqvist

    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.

    I saw a mock draft today which has us taking Hughes. I'd rather go with size in Bouchard or Dobson, instead of 5'9 Hughes. However, I haven't watched any of them play, so I don't want to be called a FiveFootNineophobe

    I was looking at some stats, I see Rasmussen has 30 pts (15 goals, 15 assists) in 13 playoff games. Gotta love that!

    It would have been great to win the lottery, but at #6 we can get a really good defenseman. I'd be happy with Dobson or Bouchard. I'm happy for Buffalo. I live an hour away from Buffalo, it's a great town, with great hockey fans, who've been through a lot. They deserve a break like that.

    Yeah, the Leafs must be intimidated, scared, or something. In their own zone, they look like they have no idea what to do. Like Don Cherry said after Game 4, this is the NHL they're playing in, they should know things like, on a 2 on 1, take away the pass, but instead they go after the guy with the puck, leaving the goalie to fend for himself. It's basic stuff. I would expect a Babcock coached team to know it. Unless Babcock is letting it happen, to get his player's attention. Either way, they need some toughness back there.

    Suter's been worth the money, but Parise's been a bust!
  14. No doubt a 2002 Avs vs. 2008 Wings series would be great!

    I know the Leafs don't have the best defense, but I'm shocked at how poorly a Babcock coached team has been playing in their own zone. I'd expect it in his first year as a coach, to get his players attention, but not in year three. The Leafs are paying Babcock $7 million a season, he should be teaching his defensemen better positional hockey than this.
