General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Tavares
« on: Today at 08:56:29 AM »

This is dumb but more teams probably do it than we realize.

Anyway if Matt Martin is involved in this in any way it'll be his greatest contribution to the team.

I've got two words for you:  Josh Leivo.

"Hi John,  Josh Leivo here.  I can't express how thrilled I would be to watch you in a Leafs uniform, leading this team to greater heights.  I'll be in the press box cheering on all your goals and assists as we bring this dream to a reality!"

I didn't want to mention it, but now that Bob has broken this, I can tell you that I have been asked to be in the video. 

I think it would only be right for me to solicit your opinions on what I should say...
Just ask him to read this thread

They'll just show him those Intact insurance commercials with Marner and Martin "how can you not want to be part of this?"

The next Washington coach sure has a lot to live up to.  Unless you win the Cup, you're a failure compared to the previous guy.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: Ranking Prospects - 2017-18

Martin Marincins music. Who might actually have a leg up on Rosen/Borgman because he plays the defensive PK big man role that the Leafs dont have.

I assume Babcock would have seen a bunch of the Marlies playoff games and seen first hand how the players performed.  Pressure situations can bring out the best (or worst) in players, so hopefully he goes into this season with an open mind about giving some Marlies a chance.

NHL Transactions / Re: Domi to MTL for Galchenyuk

I haven't seen one positive article about this trade.  Normally you would see differing opinions, some writers like the deal, some don't.  In this case it's pretty much being universally panned (from Montreal's perspective -- I think Arizona likes it alot)

In the scene that played out on the TV in the background, another unforgettable photo was captured. In it? Head coach Sheldon Keefe, seven years after first joining forces with Dubas and the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, handing his friend and boss his first championship trophy as a manager.

By the time Dubas and Keefe stepped off Ricohs ice for celebrations in the locker room, the former had already shown the latter the photo.

I think in that photo you could see the passion that Kyle has for whats been happening here. I think, really, in many ways it should have been him passing it to me. Thats perhaps more symbolic, Keefe said. Ive been incredibly grateful to coach this team. Kyle brought me here and believed in me. To be able to deliver feels good. Handing it off to him, it was poetic.

When Keefe was first hired I kind of pooh-pooh'd that Dubas would hire an old hand rather than cast a wider net. I'm very glad to have been super wrong. These two work so well together and it was fantastic to see it culminate into a trophy hand-off and, as Justin Bourne so eloquently put it, a WWE-style celebration for Dubas.

I don't know all the history with Keefe, but I remember that Dubas took a chance on him when he hired him as coach of the Soo.  Some past affiliation with the scum David Frost that I'm not quite sure about, and I believe teams were reluctant to give Keefe a chance.  Great to see that Dubas was able to see the potential in him and bring that to fruition.

A week from today we could be negotiating with Tavares :o
I don't see it, Lou would never have gone to the island without knowing he would keep Tavares

I mean there's no way for Lou to know for sure if Tavares would sign or not.  If he was so certain of Tavares staying I would think the deal would have been done shortly after Lou took over.

Seems like a fair trade to me - both have their strengths and their weaknesses.  Domi being considerably younger, though.
He's only 1 year younger than Galchenyuk

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: Marlies' Playoff Games

Would have really stung if the team couldn't finish off this incredible season with a championship. Sure sounds like it was a pretty dominant game 7 effort.

Marlies were fairly dominant for long stretches but they also had some serious puck luck in the 2nd period.  Texas had a bunch of chances when it was 2-0 that could have easily changed the game.  One guy missed an entire open net, another puck just trickled to the post and almost went in.  If Texas scored in the 2nd to make it 2-1 it could have been an entirely different outcome.

Can't wait to see his Stanley Cup celebration. Of course it'll be on video since I'll be a blubbering crying mess when it happens in real time.
