Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Kyle Dubas is new Leafs GM

Im sure Im not alone in saying this, but I can't remember a time when I actually wished a beautiful summer was over. Lets get to start of the NHL season and the 1st Leaf game already!!!

Darren Millard is leaving Sportsnet. I wonder where he's going? Was happy to see Pierre McGuire go but I actually like Millard.

I don't expect him to be a saviour or anything but a 1-year deal below $1mil for Cody Franson really couldn't hurt anybody at this point.

Having watched Franson over and over again in that infamous game 7 against Boston , I would pass on having him return to the roster . He was way too soft for a team that, above all else , needs more toughness and mental fortitude . Heís a Large PASS for me .

Knowing the Tavares Effect, and his betrothal to Marner, I'm very much hoping that Marner's extension is done before the season starts. Or the Hyman Effect is enough of a counter balance.

With our luck, Hyman pulls a Kulemin and scores 30.

Who would have thunk that Dubas is now looking at ways to clone Hyman, so we can have 1 on each line?

Absolutely Fantastic!! I told my 12 year old son that there hasnít  been a better time to be a Leafs fan in the past 50 years, and that was after they won the draft lottery and selected Auston Matthews. Then they get the the most sought after coach, find that allusive #1 goaltender and now sign the biggest free agent available in years. Probably the biggest in Leafs history. This team feels destined to make history !! Today is a special day for Leafs Nation. Feels damn good after decades of heartbreak, to finally have one of the best teams in the league, with so much talent and promise!!

Tavares to sign with the Leafs??? Say it ain't so!!!

I really just posted this to see my sig.  :P

Which player of those 3 in your sig would you want the most to become a Leaf?

Dreger is saying whispers are it is the Leafs. Be pretty disappointing now that if that turns out to be wrong.

Sad to see him go. The offence will be missed.  Particularly that presence around the opposing teamís goal crease. He was so proficient at putting those ones away for the Leafs.

This doesnít seem like it happened all that long ago....

A logical summation...

Damn. Just come out and tell us already John. You're dragging this out too long. Itís the Leafs right ? lol.

Canít help but wonder , if JT was sceptical about coming to Toronto for all these potential drawbacks  and issues that may arise if he were to put on the Maple Leaf white and blue, why would he even bother including Toronto on his shortlist?

I think one big difference between being an entertainment celebrity, and a NHL hockey player in Toronto, is that being in the entertainment business requires some press to keep you in the limelight to maintain your fame, and therefore, your paycheques.

You can make the same money being anonymous NHLer in Dallas as you could being bothered every time you drop off at your dry-cleaners in Toronto.

Yeah.  Itís definitely a personality trait situation. Some people feed off the attention and some shy away from it .

Come on guys. Iím a little surprised with all the reasons given why JT wonít chose Toronto and so little about why he WILL select the Leafs !

I guess it eases the blow when you have your mind wrapped around him going elsewhere or staying with the Islanders, but the Leafs have a very good shot at this !!

I would not be surprised if heís a Leaf in a day or two.

*Fingers crossed*

Headlines I'd like to read tomorrow..

'Leafs trade up and get their coveted Defenseman'

'Tavares coming home to Toronto , and for surprisingly low return'

'Leafs all the talk at NHL draft as they pull off some incredible moves'

ok, ok. these will just keep getting more and more ridiculous if I continue so I had better stop here. I'll settle for a really good pick at #25  :D
