Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Hyman Signed

Hard to beat his work ethic and coming up with the puck behind the net.  If Auston likes him,that's important.

Now that Marleau is here; I'd trade JvR first, as I think he has the most value. For what I think we'd get from a Bozak trade, I'd just as soon trade him just before the deadline. He still has value up the middle, especially in the face-off dot. He can score, he's decent at the shootout and he's relatively good in our end.

Komarov I think I'd like to hold onto. I think guys like him are valuable in the playoffs, not to mention the game in and out stuff he does. You need fellas like that when you go to war, no? I also don't see Hyman in the same light, so for him to take over for what Komarov does currently, I'm not seeing it yet.

I'd target defensemen in trade. Demers, Tanev, Barrie, Trouba ...

Speaking of the shootout,wondering if Marleau has got a descent record on the shootout,maybe he can win a game or two that way.

I,m wondering how a 37 year old can keep up with the young guns?

Even at 37 Marleau is probably one of the faster guys in the league.

Well that,s good to know,I didn,t know much about him being out west.If he,s still got the wheels,hopefully he still got the hands to get 25 or 30 goals.

NHL Transactions / Re: McDavid's next contract

I have a feeling if everyone of the big three wants big bucks.  They will have to part with one,my feeling is might be Nylander.  They might have to keep more of the Conner Brown types,  plus the defence needs spending.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Stanley Cup Wins
« on: June 27, 2017, 12:47:41 PM »
Been thinking, I've waited my entire life to see the Leafs win a Stanley Cup.  Would I be happy if I got to see the team win only 1?  I've waited over 40 years (since I was a kid).  What say you?
I watched them win 4 so before I die and my bucket list is complete, one would suffice.
I,m old enough to have seen more than the 1 but my Dad only got his first TV in the house in 1966.  Good for you watching all of them in the 60,s.

There is a world of glass in Vegas, so Lupul is the concensus choice for glass makers everywhere.
I wonder how much of his contract is left,1 year 2 years...it seems like ages ago he played for the Leafs.

NHL Transactions / Re: Drouin to Montreal for Sergachev
« on: June 15, 2017, 08:50:51 PM »

This trade kind of hammers home an intriguing what if scenario. In 2013 the Lightning had Palat, Johnson and Killorn all in the AHL and producing like gangbusters. They also had Kucherov in the system. Their strength, at the NHL level, was unquestionably a forward group with Stamkos, St. Louis and Lecavalier.

Despite this with the 3rd pick they pass on Seth Jones and pick Drouin. If Yzerman had simply had a better read of his prospects that team could be scary good right now.
  True,but they would be in the same surplus to protect in the expansion if they drafted Jones.

I,m thinking that Hunter has about 20 years of more hockey experience than Dubas,played in the NHL ,I think with Montreal as well,maybe even under Bowman,s coaching.He's been in hockey a long time,seems to know talent.

However saying all that Dubas might be the man in the long run.

History has provided many examples that show that having played the game professionally does not provide any real advantage or insight when it comes to coaching or managing a team. There's been many more former players that were failures than successes.

Really   Ok   Lets give Dubas the job.

Can you guys elaborate a bit further about why you value Hunter as GM over Dubas? I'm in the other camp and I'd like to know more. Thanks!

I don't want to see Lou go any time soon, and I'd prefer Hunter as GM than Dubas down the road.  So losing Dubas doesn't bother me as much as others.
I,m with you there,what has Dubas done to warrant being the next GM right now at his tender age...better Hunter and then Dubas if it could be worked out that way.

Don Cherry says that Ovechkin is a horse  must play him more.   Ron Maclean says that Barry Trotts.

  That would be a terrible signing, someone that's going to coast around for the big shot. He would be a bad example to the young core.
Lamorello should know better than that.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: President Brendan Shanahan

Alot of people ripped Leiweke too, but he's the one that made the call on Shanahan and ultimately set this whole thing in motion.

Very Good....Leiweke made the right call.  He can be given credit for getting the Rapters GM as well.
