#2572674 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 20 February 2015 - 05:33 PM

From now on when people aren't working hard enough or aren't tough enough I'll refer to them as Maple Leafs.

My niece is throwing a temper tantrum, I told her to stop throwing a maple leaf.
Let's get this around, anything bad just call it a maple leaf.

Car breaks down, it pulled a maple leaf.
Person you don't like, they're a real maple leaf.

It'll be awesome if it gains traction and gets around to Toronto fans, I just wanna see them throwing fits about it.

#2572592 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 20 February 2015 - 09:01 AM

I think Stuart would be my threshold as well. So its been what 7-8 years since a trade deadline mattered? Kenny is setting himself up for another we like our team

moment. Sometimes that's good I guess but most of his moves are insignificant and I have zero faith he'll pull the trigger on an upgrade to help this team this year either.


Meanwhile he continues to build one of the league's best group of prospects despite ever having a top 10 pick. But we don't care about that. We just want to rake the coals and throw around a bunch of exhausted f******  cliches.

#2572507 Preferred Playoff Opponents?

Posted by Echolalia on 19 February 2015 - 04:50 PM

First Boston, then Pittsburgh, then Montreal, then the Sharks, in that order.  Lets just defeat all our demons at once on the way to the Cup.

Do you guys remember when Tots scored the winning goal using Patty Kane's move that he just screwed up the very shot before?

That was awesome

I'll take Pierre over Eddie O any day

#2571487 Franzen on IR

Posted by e_prime on 17 February 2015 - 12:32 PM

I guess I'm not really up to speed on the new CBA rules about retirement.  Does the over-35 thing not apply anymore?  What would happen if Franzen just retires?


The over-35 thing only applies when a player signs his contract when he's over-35.  Which Franzen was not when he signed the contract.


If he retires now, part of his cap-hit stays because of the cap-recapture penalty in the new CBA. 

It's the big F-U from the league for all those front loaded cap deals.


EDIT:  WingingItInMotown has the breakdown of numbers on their site.




...but here's a table of just Franzen's cap hit penalties depending on when he retires.


Johan Franzen    Total Recapture Pool       2015-16       2016-17      2017-18        2018-19         2019-20

Retires Summer '15 $7,272,730              $1,454,546   $1,454,546  $1,454,546   $1,454,546     $1,454,546

Summer '16             $8,318,185                                   $2,079,546   $2,079,546   $2,079,546    $2,079,546

Summer '17             $7,863,640                                                        $2,621,213   $2,621,213    $2,621,213

Summer '18             $5,909,095                                                                             $2,954,548    $2,954,548

Summer'19              $2,954,550                                                                                                   $2,954,550


So, if he were to up and retire this summer it'd be approximately $1.5million against the cap over the next 5 years.


EDIT:  ACK!  That table looks like s***. 


EDIT: Okay, slightly better.

I get the pairings thing, but if we need a real impact player, won't he just play with Smith too? Mike needs to get over Kronwall-Ericsson, that big dope has cost us a lot of points this year, not just tonight. He's best served as a 4/5. I honestly don't think Holland will make a move, but Petry would be a good fit. I realize being the best of a bad bunch isn't the most glowing endorsement, but I see the guy a lot being out west and he's under appreciated to say the least. MacTavish is a guy who thinks Justin Schultz could win a Norris afterall :lol: We're probably arguing over nothing though, because the pairs going into the playoffs are probably going to be the same as tonight give or take an Xavier Oullet sighting.


Sorry, I was a bit harsh.


Jeff Petry is criminally underappreciated, and he might be a good fit. My problem is that I feel he'd be "more of the same." We need a great passer, he's not a great passer. We need point production, he's not a point producer. We need, ideally, someone who's going to add another dimension to our D corps. So, if it were between Petry and, say, Zidlicky, I'd probably choose the latter. Why? Because Zidlicky is an excellent passer, an excellent shooter, an excellent quarterback, and a point producer. He's not Rafalski, but he's the same kind of thing.

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. But here's me and my cousin at hockeytown cafe. Despite losing he had a great time at his first wings game and we had some great entertainment with a lunatic behind us screaming The whole time (wouldn't be surprised if he was a member here considering what he was saying)

Anyone ever notice that the Habs logo looks like a toilet seat?

BTW. I wasn't trying to slight the guy, all I seen was the ticker before the full details came out that grandson and Santa went for a first.
I didn't even see jokinen was part of it until it was posted in the grandson to preds threads.

Grandson? Who trades away their grandson for a draft pick? Awful grandparents if you ask me. At least the leafs got this guy

There are literally endless jokinen gifs on Google.

Not necessarily.  Rare things such as aneurysms can happen at any age. 

Lana: What's your third biggest fear?
Archer: Brain aneurysm.
Lana: What's a brain aneurysm have to do with walking around in a swamp?
Archer: Nothing, it can happen anywhere at anytime, that's what makes it so terrifying.
