    News From Around the NHL

    I've been seeing articles about which teams can sign Marner. With the Leafs creating a mess with their cap signing Tavares, I can see Marner signing elsewhere. He's worth giving up four 1st round picks.
  2. Good plan, the Tigers could use a 2Bman

    stupid Leafs had to give up a 1st round pick to get rid of Marleau's contract! They're always going to be second tier, with too much money on their forwards.

    It was always fun when they were dating, during breaks in the play, looking up at the Luxury Boxes to see if Anna was there

    Kronwall to Hang Them Up

    Click-bait You got me
  6. I know it's said in a draft to pick the best player available, but we're at a point now where we need to draft certain types of players. We have a lot of young forwards, so we need defencemen with size, and get a starting goalie soon. If Seider is the guy we wanted, I don't have a problem with it.

    "The Russian 5" Documentary

    You can be cheap, like me, and watch it for free if you want. I was all ready to pay $5, but someone put it on youtube for nothin' Very well done, it's emotional at the end with the limo accident and winning the Cup again in 1998. Oh, I was also yelling at the TV when they showed Claude Lemieux sucker punch Kozlov and hit Draper, "I hate you Claude Lemieux!!" ... I will always hate that snake!

    I don't think there's anyone to blame, we weren't going to win forever. Think of the franchise players we lost the last 10+ years, Yzerman, Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg. Then you include the secondary players we lost, Holmstrom, Draper, Maltby, Osgood, etc.. Players like them come along once every 25 years, and very tough to replace, especially the draft position we had while we were winning. If it wasn't for Datsyuk and Zetterberg turning into the players they were, the "collapse" would have happened by 2005-06. We kind of lucked out with them. Nyquist and Tatar were the next guys, but they didn't work out.

    Is Mike Babcock overrated?

    The Leafs defense positioning is horrible. I know Babcock doesn't have much to work with, but you'd think a Stanley Cup and Gold Medal winning coach could come up with a better defensive system. Hockey is fast, but it's a positional game. How hard is it to tell someone to stay in a certain area of the ice? I've not been impressed with his coaching the last two years. Those would be fun. I'm in!

    TOR vs. BOS - Series Thread

    The Leafs are a mess. Dubas is clueless. I know Holland the last few years wasn't well liked, but at least I could see he had a plan. For example, contracts were expiring the same time guys needed extensions and raises. Dubas has no plan.

    How do the Leafs lose Game 4 + 6? I have not been impressed with Babcock the last two playoffs. If Boston wins the series, I think the Leafs should consider firing Babcock.

    TOR vs. BOS - Series Thread

    I wonder if the Leafs have blown it? Now they have to win at least one more game in Boston to take the series. You gotta win Game 4 and take a 3-1 series lead. Bruins have the home ice back.

    TB vs CBJ - Series Thread

    I need to grow up, I laugh everytime I see the Blue Jackets referred to as the "BJ's". It's like when I hear the word "duty". I called them the "BJ's" over text tonight, and laughed
