His teammates call him Sam, sounds good to me. :)

Breakout: D to Tavares to Marner with speed, gains line drop-pass to Lillypad one-timer for rebound to JT under the bar :D

Scotty Bowman on PTS talks Leafs:

Interesting point, Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo got nice contracts after Tavares setting them up for 30-35 goal seasons. His wingers have gotta be salivating.

Patty finding Auston with a sweet give-and-go down low. Will be seeing this a lot this year :D

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Johnny Toronto looks frickin' beautiful in the Royal Blue & White.
The Dermottologist is on record as saying JT's hands in tight are "elite".

Just a reminder, Leafs are rolling TWO #1 lines ALL SEASON LONG :D
1A) Marleau-Matthews-Nylander.
1B) Hyman-Tavares-Marner.

Marc Savard on Tavares & Marner:

Fun Fact: Hyman-Tavares-Marner can be the GTA line. All three hail from the Greater Toronto Area.

I look like Willy from like, the temples up. But I have black hair.

You RedLeaf, along with Carleton and others, do a mighty service to Leafs Nation.

Another point others have made I'm sure is that with Matthews/Tavares/Kadri down the middle, Willy is slotted in at RW moving forward. Ditto Marner, Brown and Kapanen. In a cap world and with the idea of strength down the middle, it's difficult to spend superstar money repeatedly on the wings and have anything left for defense and goaltending.

I actually like Friedge. And watch out for that Guy on the left of PP1.

Just heard on Tim and Sid that Nylander's agent also reps Johnny Gaudreau, who in 2016 went all the way to October 10th, the day before the season started, to sign his RFA contract. He went on to have the worst statistical season of his career.

A good one too. Leafs Blueprint: Dermott/Holl/father's trip episode from last season.

Auston has a sense of humor:
Reporter: "Any personal goals for the upcoming season?"
AM: "Yeah, they're personal."
Reporter: "Is it fair to say you have high expectations with regards to this upcoming season?"
AM: "We have high expectations with regards to the upcoming season."

I think a lot of the young guys are really grateful having a lot of veteran talent around to help answer questions. And I think JT will be yuge for Auston's growth, just having that superstar 1C around. Some of the pressure's off, he can really come out of his shell. I'm sure it can get pretty monotonous, reporters constantly trying to feed the beast. Tavares is so adept at it, there's Marleau, Rielly, Naz and Haisey around. We really have a great blend. I was thinking about the Eugene Melnyk interview recently with one of his players. He was trying to sell hope (sounds familiar) talking about character and their "rebuild". It sounded a bit delusional. The question up to them is do you want to finish bottom-5 for about 3 years or 10? The difference is weather you're delusional or not.

I'm anticipating an "internal-cap" moving forward with Willy, Mitchy, Auston and beyond, as many more learned pundits have pontificated. If you're interesting in shaving a million off market-value in order to be surrounded by elite players and cheap young talent in perpetual contention for cups for the next decade, then by all means, please do business with The Toronto Maple Leafs moving forward. If you need full market value at all costs, well, all the best to you. Some player's priorities are a bit different. Kyle said something similar fielding questions at his alma mater the other day along the lines of being able to keep this core of young talent together long term.

Johnny Toronto looks beautiful in that Royal Blue and White :)

If this becomes a thing I'm taking sole and exclusive credit.

First it was Patty, then it was JT :D
