Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Marincin on waivers
« on: October 06, 2017, 08:21:53 AM »
This makes sense to me.

I was wondering why Marincin didn't play in one of the back-to-back
preseason ending games.  He was the only one of the top 25 or so
that didn't play in one of those games.  I was actually surprised he 'made' it after that.

Sounds like he was cut in Babcock's mind a long time ago.

Continuing our discussion from yesterday

https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/golden-knights-nhl/vadim-shipachyov-among-3-players-cut-by-golden-knights/


Shipachyov is cut but not really.  He will play opening day.
Theodore maybe the same

The Knights roster is still in flux.

Currently stands at  11 forwards
                                9 defensemen
                                3  goalies

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Bonus overages?
« on: June 22, 2017, 03:19:41 PM »
Now that Matthews has won the Calder and Marner has made the all rookie team shouldn't we have all of the information we need to calculate player bonuses for last year?

Did we go over the cap?  or not?

I see Cap Friendly has the Black Hawks over the cap for
next year due to overages.

I saw Arcade Fire a few years ago. Fun concert.

One of the funniest lines I heard from a fellow member of the audience.

"Wow, I never expected so many parents to attend this concert."

This from an approx 20 year old man.

My friend and I were one of many attending that were approx 50 yrs old.

lol

what do you guys think about Leafs acquiring Methot?

Whether we think Matt Martin is a good fit or not really doesn't matter

Babcock and the management crew obviously like him and value him.
They value him enough they decided to go ahead and resign Ben Smith just so they can protect Martin from being exposed in the expansion draft.

He will be here whether we want him or not.

Personally I'm ok with it either way. He can stay or go.  I don't think it really will matter to the team's success either way.

Pronman released his final 2017 draft rankings: http://www.espn.com/nhl/insider/story/_/id/19416323/nhl-top-100-draft-prospect-rankings

He has future Leaf Erik Branstrom ranked 11th, the 2nd highest ranking for a defenceman:

Wow  - opinions must be widespread on Mr. Brannstrom
this site has him going at #29 to Ottawa

General NHL News & Views / Pittsburgh's dilemma - Fleury or Murray
« on: May 12, 2017, 03:11:16 PM »
So Theo is playing great and the Pens have a chance to repeat.

That's cool and everything, but I am more interested in what Pittsburgh does after the playoffs are over.  They can only protect one.  I know Fleury has some sort of a 'no movement clause' but it's my understanding the Pens can trade him to a limited number of teams.  Both Fleury and Murray are excellent goalies.  Murray is younger. 

Cap Friendly has the expansion draft set up in a way that would force the Pens to protect Fleury as long he doesn't waive his NMC.   Is this accurate?

I would guess the Pens would prefer to keep Murray and deal Fleury.

What trade might happen?

Fleury to the Flames?
                   Canucks?

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Ben Smith re-signed to a 1-year deal
« on: May 03, 2017, 09:09:19 AM »
I agree with Carlton and Busta
This signing of Smith guarantees that Martin will be protected.

I'm guessing the last forward protected is Leipsic, and the
last dman protected is Marinicin.  (He played more minutes
in the playoffs than Carrick did).

So Vegas can pick one of the following

Fehr, Rychel, Griffith, Leivo, Carrick or Sparks

Who did Ray say the Leafs signed today so he'd be able to be exposed in the expansion draft?

Good question.  I can't find anything anywhere
