According to what Mirtle has heard, doesn't look like we'll see Orr much, if at all:

Having a fourth line that actually plays a regular shift and isn’t weighed down by a Colton Orr – as appears to be the plan, according to scuttlebutt from within the organization – could alone improve what the Leafs have up front.

JVR Bozak Kessel
Lupul Santorelli Kadri


Komarov Kontiola Clarkson
Bodie Holland Frattin

Pretty bad forward core. The drop off after the top 5 is pretty staggering. This team had trouble with secondary scoring last year with a 20-goal season from Mason Raymond. I guess they are going to roll the dice on another cheap addition before training camp? Still, not really any improvement upfront.



Before
 I read Mike's post I'm making sure my wrists are taped.

God man you need some happy pills
Gods herb something.
Sheesh

If your not here to sell hope then leave the class please!


Ok forget right away I'm guessing same old with you.
They should of signed frick or frack over the hill has been
For 5 x 5 then regret.


Look at the big picture.
Viable 4th line that can take a regular shift.
Jvr and Kessel were stiffs burned out after Olympics so glad no Olympics next year.

Phaneuf was a stiff after signing his overpriced contract though not by much.

He should be playing less
I didn't like his game at all stretch run.


Nylander in the near future looks like a stud.
Pre season always surprizes.
Young swedes look promising
Johnson rookie of the year last year sel.

Quite a few promising d on the horizon.


Not all doom and gloom.
Stamkos ufa in 2 years.
You just never know,
Always was a leaf fan.

There's a lot of players who we've never seen, or were in roles or linemates that you couldn't really expect them to do anything with.  It shall be interesting.  And if anything, McDavid would look really good.

It looks to me like Shanahan wants to have a season to see what the Leafs have in their system.

There have been no major changes to the roster and past the 1st line the team is pretty thin, so I don't think the Leafs are going anywhere this coming season. I do like the fact that there were no boat anchors signed during free agency (although Nonis may have done so if left unchecked) and that there is finally a forward prospect with huge potential in the system.

It should be interesting to see who plays well in the bottom 6 and if the Leafs play a more resilient game. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more picks of Nylander's upside over the next couple of years. Playoffs can wait. The Leafs aren't anywhere close to contending right now.

Yet I still think they'll be better.
Watching reruns on leaf tv earlier in the year games
They looked like they could really compete.

I believe the assistants they brought in shall bring more structure to they're game which was sorely lacking.

(Swarm d collapsing d game non possession game)
The Nashville assistant should help here immensely you'll see.
Brendan is not gonna put up with floaters and eventually will clear them out.
