Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Komarov: Sell or Keep?
« on: November 17, 2017, 05:32:45 PM »
It's not outside the realm of possibility that either Komarov, Bozak and JVR are all traded before seasons end (or some combination of above).  Sosh, Kapanen, Leivo are in the mix for these positions. Obviously we need to have or make some openings as our younguns start to mature. And for a lot less a year than the 10.95 million we are paying the vets this year and the fairly large increase we are going to have to pay JVR to keep him.

Former Leafs: Ex-Files / Kerry Fraser has cancer

Although not a Leaf, his decision affected Leaf Nation for a long time. I am sad to hear he has cancer and hopeful his prognosis is good. Best wishes Kerry.

Non-Hockey Chatter / Hurricane Irma
« on: September 06, 2017, 09:36:52 AM »
Dear TML associates, just wanted to make you aware of the massive amount of damage being inflicted on the N.E Caribbean at this hour,  I lived through Hurricane Luis back in 95 which was a Cat 5 storm and Irma is making that look like childs play.  Irma is shaking buildings, roofs and cars are being tossed like matchbox's and one huge hotel the Beach Plaza in Marigot is simply gone.  Please join me in prayer for all the people in harms way in St.Barths, St.Martin, Anguilla, the BVI's and USVI, Puerto Rico and Cuba.  Also it looks like it will hit the Florida Keys and then head up central Florida.  A lot of people are suffering and a lot will perish.

Former Leafs: Ex-Files / Bob McGill

Hey Bob,
Get well soon Bob, need you back at Leafs TV.

I would say Dermott?

Well how about Casper the Kapanen, guy has the touch, perhaps to much of a touch for the 4th line. As much as Hyman slugs his guts out and as much as I love his work ethic and overall hustle the more I think he should be slotted back with Boyle and Martin/Leivo (perhaps).
I think with Kapanen on the line with Matthews it would spark Auston and Willie into production.  Just an idea (and waiting to be shot down ;))

Non-Hockey Chatter / Tim Leiweke
« on: December 02, 2016, 05:40:36 PM »
Just wanted to say a few words about Tim Leiweke. When we hired him I mentioned this to a fellow I know, but didn't know he used to work under Leiweke in LA.  He said, if you have Tim he will turn your town around.

The success of the Raptors, Leafs and yes the MLS Toronto FC is all attributed to Mr. Leiweke.  Just wanted to thank him and that he did have enought time to institute the changes before he was run out of town.
Thank God the placements he made with Shanahan, Ujiri and Bezbatchenko all seem to be anchored in their positions so the suites can't ruin what he did.

And will he ever truly be given the credit that is due?

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Unleash the Frattin
« on: July 04, 2016, 05:49:24 PM »
Probably not worth a thread and may be in the wrong place or perhaps no one cares, what happens with Matty, does he still play for the Marlies even though he is Ottawa property or has he been cut loose without any interest?
I keep getting images of Forest Gump sitting on a lawn more and cutting grass for free.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Managing expectations
« on: June 09, 2016, 03:37:39 PM »
Very good article here especially for Nutman and I, who have a tendancy to get way ahead of ourselves.  My expectations are for the Leafs to play competitively even though they may end up in the bottom 5.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Marlies non-coverage
« on: April 29, 2016, 02:11:41 PM »
Thought I had already posted this.

Does anyone have an idea who we can send emails complaining to the TML management about the almost non coverage of the Marlies. We fans truly deserve better and so do the Marlies. If we had an email to complain to or take up a small petition within this site to send in then perhaps things might improve.
One would expect with the high expectations for the Marlies that this thing should be exploited a lot more so we can see the next wave of Leaf's actually playing for something.

Last night was disgusting!

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Bullpen concerns
« on: April 26, 2016, 11:54:29 AM »
Don't you think Gibby hangs on to his starters far to long?  It was evident with Stroman last night that he was done with the first batter in the 7th yet Gibby doesn't pull him.  Also whats happened to Cecil, last year he dominated, this year is like he is throwing balloons.  Who thinks Sanchez should come back to the pen as the set up to Osana?  Hutch threw a pretty good game the other day and Sanchez could translate into more wins as a set up to Osana.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / The Marty Dzierkals thread
« on: March 20, 2016, 02:17:29 PM »
Man I am getting even more excited, our prospect pool is getting deeper and after this draft (and subsequent drafts) will continue to move from plonk to fine wine.
