Leafs Rumours & Speculation / Re: Armchair GM Thread 2022-2023

My initial reaction is pretty much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Exactly. If the rumoured asking price of 2.5 million is indeed what Sandin is asking for, I'm not sure that. we see him at training camp. Not with a contract anyways.

Last week a man wearing body armor and armed with an assault rifle and a nail gun tried to breach the FBI's Cincinnati office. He was later shot and killed by police after exchanging fire with officers. Authorities say they believe the man had posted dark messages on Truth Social, Trump's online platform, including one that said federal agents should be killed on sight.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: Ranking Prospects 2022-2023

I like SDA and don't totally agree with the assessment. I think he's got good speed and while he's not NHL ready he has only played 1 pro season. He'll just be turning 22 in Sept. It will be interesting to see how he does this coming season for the Marlies.

I think that’s all true and it’s a real caveat, but if his play style is top-6, there either needs to be overwhelming offense, or some grit and grind that’ll help them weather top defenses so they can contribute complementarily. Otherwise you are in the Adam Brooks, Seth Griffith range. I don’t see a legitimate fit for him in the bottom of the roster where opportunities are actually open.

Happy to be surprised and wrong though

I think Robertson is another "top 6 or bust" kind of player.

Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Gretzky being sued for 10 million

Anyone else kind of get the sense that outside of being very good at hockey Gretzky is kind of a zero?

I think that seems to be more and more evident with every passing tv ad/appearance he makes.

Part of the kid and me wants to remember him as this great guy with exceptional talent. The adult in me doesn't allow that.

That said, it's sadly true for a lot of these "celebrity" athletes. Sure there's the good guys, but for the most part, they come off like pompous a$$hats.

yep.
I've never actually liked the guy much, tbh. And his schilling for online betting now just totally ruins any integrity he may have had in my eyes.
Exactly the betting thing was bad, bad, bad.   He is also a groper with woman,  I have never understood men who think they can manhandle women.  It unfortunate that many of our top hockey stars are not the stellar gentlemen we think they should be.
Not a fan of Gretzky but you have a source for this groping thing?

Sort of weird, they started tanking, Charlie gets the axe and then they play lights out after the break and now back to bad baseball. Something is not right in Jay's land.
