Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: 2018 Draft Thread
« on: Today at 10:29:20 AM »
He was at the Leafs development camp last summer.

I’m not all too familiar with what being invited to development camp means.  Could they have signed him for free without wasting a pretty high draft pick out of that camp if they liked him (which they obviously did)?  Was it a Roster spots issue?  Once we had an open spot, couldn’t we have signed him then?   

Obviously once he re-declared for the draft that option was gone but I would like to understand this.

General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Tavares

1yr @ 14 with an implied agreement to re-sign for 8x10

I like this.

If you sign a UFA on July 1, can you re-sign that player to a multi year deal on July 2?

1 Year @ $14M on July 1 for 2018-2019
8 years @ $10M on July 2 which takes effect 2019-2020+.

It's in essence a 9 year deal.

That's something I could live with for Tavares.

I have to imagine that the majority of their amateur scouting work will be done by now so whoever replaces Hunter will likely not have much to do pre-draft outside of being another voice in the room.

Agreed that the amateur scouting is done, however, I think a Kyle & Mark/XXX draft strategy will look slightly different than a Lou & Mark draft strategy (See: 2015 vs. the 2016/2017 drafts).

Really excited about this.

Good news, I wasn't excited about Nonis or JFJ.

Bad news, I was excited for Burke and Lou.

Hopefully the team takes the next step...I wonder what his first big roster move will be.

I don't know that answer but Overdrive had a guy on yesterday that it happened to. I assume very rare??

I wonder how many times someone's won coach of the year and been fired in the same year. In any sport.

George Karl...

Marleau

Props to Andersen And Rielly

All in all, Matthews, Nylander, Kadri, Babcock and Reilly were all frustrating for me yesterday.  Marner was ok, but he got caught for some big hits which is quite rare (remember it was said that they'd have to catch him in order to hit him...well they caught him). 

That's why we lost...their best players were A LOT better than ours.  That won't happen every game, so I still believe we can make it a series.

I really wonder what would have happened if Marner was able to score with that backhand when it was tied.  TSN turning point in my opinion.

Watching it live,I yelled "offside" at my TV before the goal even went in...the TV folks were talking about the wrong player going offside.  It was definitely worth a challenge.

Devils advocate - Get it wrong and Boston is likely up 2-0...

Frustrating that they didn't have the right replay, but, given the circumstances, it becomes more of a late in the game type challenge. With that much hockey left, it's not worth the risk of falling behind by two. With a few minutes left? Risk it to preserve the tie/keep it close.

Maybe...its probably also worth it in a Game 1 First 5 minutes in of a 7 game series as well in a game where you were getting clocked as well.  Its all about momentum especially early in the series.  Any other situation or time in the series and I would likely agree with you.

Isn't someone getting paid like $80k a year just to provide these replays? How is this acceptable?

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: 2017-18 Marlies

He plays 4th line mostly, as he's behind Aaltonen, Mueller, and Gauthier, and Greening (occasionally). He also started the season off with mono, so there's that.

Thanks Herman.  So its as I thought, both hurt and 4th line minutes.

Based on your (or anyone else's) viewing of him, can we pencil him in for a wing spot in 2020 or so?  Too early to tell? 

How's Bracco looking to folks?

Any one know what's up with Adam Brooks? 

Tears it up for 2 straight years in Junior but only 6 points in 33 games.  Not bad for a rookie...but not what I was expecting.  4th line minutes?  Hurt?

13
Bozak.
Matthews.

14
Martin (he is unlikely to get here again and he did play well)
Marner

Polak played well as well.

Great win. 

That Marner goal should have counted.  Quick made a move AFTER the obvious goalie contact to make a save but was outmaneuvered by Marner.  To my eyes he put himself out of position.
