Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: John Tavares is a Maple Leaf

I've brought this up before, but I think it's even more true now than ever before. Leafs should run 11 forwards/7 defencemen.

The 4th line can be two of Leivo/Grundstrom/Brown/Kapanen and then a rotating C group of Matthews/Tavares/Kadri/Nylander to get them extra minutes throughout the game.

Love this idea!!!

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Marleau-Tavares-Marner
Johnsson-Kadri-Brown/Kapanen

I just wanted to post this again.

Drools!!!!

These are three lines all deserving of 18 mins. 

A 4th line for 6 mins is all that is needed at least for this year.

This is fantastic news. 

Is this real life???

A hockey player in his prime leaving his draft team?

A Toronto boy coming home to live his dream?

In this cold weather?

In this high tax situation?

With all the negativity surrounding being at home ( family and friends somehow being a distraction?)

Taking a home town discount of reportedly $2M per year.

This is unprecedented...I love it!!!

Go Leafs Go!!!!

He was at the Leafs development camp last summer.

Iím 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, couldnít 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...

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?
