I've never heard Treliving speak before yesterday.  I did LOL a few times, so there is that.

I sorta shrugged at this until I remembered who Auston Matthews' childhood idol is.

Probably a sign that Doan is done with the nonsense in Arizona if thats the case?  I don't particularly hate it but I also don't know that he has done anything to make me think he's a good hockey executive.

If Doan being in the organization is the thing that keeps Matthews in Toronto....that seems weird?

I'm mostly just joshing about the Matthews thing. But I don't think him having a role with the Leafs or even just being someone who could vouch for Treliving to him would be completely meaningless as the two attempt to speed-run a relationship here.

Why joshing?  Doan can be the new Spezza and if Matthews likes him, all the better.  Seems like a pretty smart move.

Maybe it's just me but I thought that the sway Spezza would have had in the organization came from him actually having been on the team and had already developed relationships within the room as a mentor. I'm not sure you can just establish that by virtue of signing on some other ex-NHLer.
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Good point, I hadn't thought of that.

Quote from: bustaheims on June 01, 2023, 01:30:37 PMI can also see why it could be difficult to fire Keefe after what was the team's most successful season in almost two decades.
Add to that, Keefe/Dubas have 3 of the top 4 winning percentages in Leafs history. He's a very good coach and I think he'll change the style slightly.


I don't think this is completely true. For the last few seasons, the leafs have been shut down in the exact same way come playoff time and have done nothing to try to change it. Teams play a tight Box + 1 formation in the defensive zone and keep Toronto to the outside. It leads to a lot of missed nets and blocked shots. It also leads to high numbers of shots, but low numbers of goals. I've seen no adjustment from Keefe to remedy it.

What does everyone think Treliving's first move as GM will be?

I think he does something wild like sign Matt Dumba.

Something to do with the goaltending, maybe shifting Murray somehow.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Murray gets traded at the draft on Day 2.

He's going to make a terrible trade with nylander.
