Less skilled players have shown more
heart.   That is what we need to see.
to make any of this team a legend.

This is nonsensical.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: 2022 NHL Draft Discussion
« on: June 24, 2022, 01:02:21 PM »
Since Nylander is the only quality player TO has drafted outside of the top 5 in 8 years, Shanahan should be conducting the draft for TO. Of course, many Leaf fans even consider Nylander is a failure.

I think writing off Sandin(22yrs old) and Liljegren(23yrs old) this early is a tad shortsighted. Many Leaf fans may not agree.

I agree 100% with this. Some players still have upside like Knies and Robertson. Kind of ridiculous to expect the last 2-3 drafts to have long shots pan out immediately.

Happy to see him win it. We may as well celebrate the fact that we have a very rare talent.

I had a lot of interest in the first game, but had a wedding to attend on Saturday and had a few things to do tonight, so missed it. I definitely would catch an elimination game.

If Tampa wins in fewer than 7 games can we lay claim to Leafs as the 2nd best team in the league?


Asking for a friend.
Yes. Yes we can.

I finally have an iPhone after years of Android phones, and I need to know what’s a good podcast app to use. Any tips?
I'm thinking about switching back. Any particular reason?
Do you mean the reason that I switched to iPhone?
Yup!

Genuinely thought there’d be one of these from atop the can by now
I thought Torts was washed.

I think Leafs just need a ‘slightly’ more favourable first round match up to go on a run next year.

Sucks doesn't it. We have to hope for a weaker opponent to advance. With the talent on this team we should be steamrolling everyone.
We're literally watching a dynasty in the Lightning, but sure. Steamroll.

I take the Leafs too but I don't think it's crazy for someone to prefer taking their shot with a top 1 or 2 goalie in the league in Shesterkin. Especially since there's also a lot of good pieces around him (like a former Norris winner, former Hart nominee, 50-goal scorer, multiple top draft picks who are NHL roster players).
Kreider is a 50 goal scorer in the sense that he did it this year. I'd bet every day of the week that he never comes close to replicating that.

Also, a lot of their top players aren't old but their core isn't nearly as young as the Leafs. Their young guys are nice but Lafreniere and Kakko don't look like Matthews and Marner. Shesterkin is carrying them.

I think the boat anchor right now is Tavares for us. I think if we redistribute his cap hit more evenly and I'd take the Leafs every time.

I just heard Roger Lajoie on the fan say most leafs fans would would trade rosters with the rangers.

I mean maybe I’m in the minority but, no.
Heck no. They have some nice pieces but they were obviously pretenders.

The Lightning feel inevitable.
