In Topic: Maple Leafs win 2016 draft lottery

I'm actually happy for them. I live in Toronto currently and it would be nice to see this place rejuvenated a bit when it comes to hockey so I don't have to listen to all this talk about the Jays and Raptors. 


Leafs have a great group of young forwards: Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Kapanen, Kadri, JVR

But the D needs some work though: Reilly, Gardner, Marincin, Corrado

 

IF they got Stamkos in addition to this group they should be a perennial playoff team in the next 2-3 years with the addition of some UFA help on D.

I think the bigger issue is the piss poor attitude our guys are displaying. I don't remember players coming out in the media like this complaining. Be a professional and discuss these things with the coach and GM rather than going through the media. Grow up. This isn't how the red wings do things.

Okay - so after reading some more THIS ugly logo will be the one on top of the arena and not the red wings logo - that is disgusting - I'm sorry.

Not the CLASSIEST name we could have chosen. If it had to be a corporate sponsor then I guess it makes sense to do this one. I hope that after a couple years they decide to take the high road and re-name it.

We need a serious shake-up next season. We need Larkin to be playing top 6 C and we will need one top 6 UFA C at minimum. We need lines with identity and I think having a physical skill 3rd line like this playoffs makes sense. We need skill guys playing with skill guys from now on.

 

FWD:

- One of Tatar/Nyquist should be traded to move up in the draft or acquire more pics to get our future D sorted. Pulkkinen should probably be shipped off too at the draft.

- UFA C could be Stamkos/Backes/Staal (hinges on trading Datsyuk's contract away)

 

     Zetterberg - Larkin - Mantha

Tatar/Nyquist - UFA C - Athanasiou

          Jurco - Sheahan - Abdelkader

       Nosek - Glendening - Bertuzzi/Callahan

 

DEF:

- Sign one of Yandle/Goligoski/Hamhuis 

- Trade Ericsson

 

UFA D - Green

Kronwall - Dekeyser

Smith - Marchenko
