3) Babcock picks us after 20+ years of playoffs

Yeah, I like Mike Babcock and everything but I'm sort of of the opinion that he left Detroit in large part because he saw the writing on the wall of that streak coming to a near and sudden stop.

I think he picked the Leafs because:

A) They were offering him a boatload of money

B) It's not Buffalo

Still, if you want to compete for Lord Stanley's Omelette you have to be prepared to take a few eggs out of that basket and break 'em.

Well that's the thing about this team; they never do things (over) easy.

I see what you did there

I tend to turn on my team at times. I guess you could compare me to (eggs) Benedict Arnold.

Sorry guys, slow day at work.

Is there no devilry in the timing of it all?

We retained Carlyle deliberately to stall for it.

The basket is Liljegren. Why do you want to break his eggs?

Which one is the snowmobile?

I still think they should have gone for the furnace.

I've never bought that either.

We send scouts with vials of mono virus to infect players they want to slide in the draft.

Forget that, we just need to figure out a way for Jeremy Bracco to kiss the players we want to draft.

That tactic may have already been discussed at some point with our players..

The primary reason he'd remain in Sweden would be for family (pretty much just his mom). Rogle is not a good team at all.

5. Lou Lamoriello says Toronto’s first-rounder, Timothy Liljegren, will either play in the Swedish pro league or with the Marlies this season.

You have to believe the Marlies is the best choice here, although Liljegren is very close with his mom back home.

The defenceman admitted this week that it was difficult getting accustomed to the small North American ice. His career would be better served by playing in Toronto, where he can be overseen by the club that drafted him, skate on NHL-sized rinks, be forced to learn a more physical brand of hockey, and spend more time with skating coach Barb Underhill.

“Some stuff is totally new for me, so it’s hard to translate them into the game right away,” Liljegren said. “I’m really trying to get away from my crossovers — to go backwards in a straight line instead of doing crossovers.”

Everyone wants to do the Friedman.

HYPE

Can't believe this kid dropped to 17th. Mono would destroy anyone's year. Marner went from phenomenal to ordinary when he dealt with his. It's yuge we got this kind of help on D for the coming dynasty in the first year out of the tank.

Gardiner-Zaitzev and Reilly-Liljegren for the next decade looks pretty good.
And the top twelve will be kicking a** and taking names. Steady Freddie between the pipes.

So, who should get Mono and drop to 31st in the next Draft, to be draft as a Leaf?  ::)
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

We're going to have a few more highlights of Timoth in blue and white as he will be attending Training Camp, and missing the start of the SHL season.
