What do you think our odds are? We definitely need October/November/December Jack in there. When they crushed us 8-1 I took notice. This is an elite team. We've got a puncher's chance. I say run the body as much as you can. Guys can get taken out legally with good hits.

Keefe said "the harder the better. It's what we need right now."

We're definitely underdogs. We'll see if that suits us. Hopefully Bunting, Sandin and Kase can get in there at sometime.
General NHL News & Views / Doc Emrick Retires

A big loss. When I was checking in the rest of the playoffs it was always the NBC feed with Doc and his emotion. To NBC what Bob Cole was to CBC. Legendary moments in a most storied career!
(oops 3.75, sorry mods)

What a difference a year makes! What was the ballpark at the start of last year? 6 x $8-million? Have fun Tyson!

Hello friends. Clips will go here for remembering hockey. Hockey... that was awesome...

That's good, by the end of it Leafs could neither prevent powerplay goals nor score them.
It has begun. :D

Different from last year:
- John Tavares.
- Matthews is healthy (revealed a back issue after last series).
- Kadri will (hopefully) ride the physical line without a suspension.
- All young players a year older and wiser.
- Stronger down the middle and arguably stronger on D with the addition of Muzzin.

Different over the regular season:
- Everyone giving 100% every minute of every game with heightened attention to detail.
- Some timely physical play, now an investment with a series on the line.

Leafs in 6.

Love for the hard-working catalyst on the left side goes here :)
Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Coach Mike Babcock

Thinkin' about them Babsocks the other day and I think it's swell of the guy to lend his visage to a fun product like that. He probably doesn't see a cent (not like he needs it) and knowing him all he asked was a percentage to charity. Not many high end professionals would not take themselves too seriously like that.
Leafs Rumours & Speculation / Erik Karlsson
January 10, 2018, 01:51:54 PM
General Erik Karlsson thread. Not sure where it belongs. I find this one fascinating. After Stamkos I've come around on these guys re-signing with their clubs long term for max dollars. Stammer, Price, I'm predicting Johnny T. This one has me intrigued. Melnyk vocal about being on a budget. Albatross contracts in Bobby Ryan, Phaneuf, etc. If their window has closed could be time for a complete rebuild. I'm guessing he stays, but anything's possible. He can't be happy with the way things have gone there this year, and what about the future...

Basically every team, yours truly included would be SALIVATING at getting this guy. So the question is, what would you send the other way? Stud D puts a lot of teams over the top. It would be hard but would you move picks, prospects, young players, cap space and anyone not named Auston Matthews?

Age: 27
2017-2018: $6.5-million (modified NTC - 10 teams)
2018-2019: $6.5-million (modified NTC - 10 teams)
2019-2020: UFA

Very sketchy rumours that the ten teams include areas in California, Tampa, even Detroit.

I'm putting the hits here. There will be a few.
Two minutes for being a beast, hawk totally tipped the puck :D
Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Jake Gardiner

This quote inspired me to give him his thread. Jake's come a long way in two years. I'm sure there'll be an offensive play or two to put here during this Stanley Cup winning season ;)
Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Is it Preseason yet...
July 11, 2017, 07:55:56 PM
Just wondering what you guys are doing to get your Leafs fix this summer. To remind myself of this cool group of young guys I've watched again in no particular order:

- Matthews 4-goal debut.
- Final five minutes of Playoff Clincher against Pittsburgh.
- Kappy goal in Playoff Game 2.
- Bozak goal in Playoff Game 3.
- Matthews Centennial Classic O/T Winner.
- All 40 Matthews goals.
- Dangle LFR from Auston's debut.
- Home-opener Number Retirement Ceremony.
- Auston Matthews draft.
- Centennial Classic Full Overtime.
- Auston Matthews Highlights: "It's My Time".
- Mitch Marner Highlights: "Playin' on a Prayer".
- Mitch Marner Breakaway Goal vs Florida.
- William Nylander Hat-trick vs Boston.
- Nazem Kadri O/T Winner vs Edmonton.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / President Brendan Shanahan
April 09, 2017, 10:35:48 AM

The hire. The mandate. The execution. Shanny appreciation thread.

After Burke, I had no expectations with the hiring of executive Brendan Shanahan by the MLSE. I liked the things coming out of his mouth, but of course, talk is cheap. Is this just another stuffed suit? A politician and glad-hander who has no idea what he's doing? Time would tell...

They started showing signs they that truly were going to build through the draft. There was the aggressive pursuit of Coach Mike Babcock and GM Lou Lamoriello, both of which have said that it was Shanahan's mission statement for the Toronto Maple Leafs that made them want to come here. He hired intelligent people and then stayed out of their way. After two-and-a-half years I'm now comfortable in saying that Brendan Shanahan is an excellent executive.
