Wasn't there some talk of a Russian winger being signed as a free agent? Played on the same team as one of our other Russia KHL prospects.

Quote from: Arn on May 24, 2024, 03:26:47 AMNot that it should mean much, but I'm glad to see the HR jacket back. The game is meant to be fun. If a bit of enjoyment gets them back playing loose and enjoying themselves hopefully it'll translate to performance and results.
Totally agree, why did they part with it in the first place?  A fan favorite

Hope the Jays can go on a run now.  Good pitching, warm bats.  Nice to get back in the race.
Shanahan had to be there. Ultimately he is the boss.
Quote from: herman on May 17, 2024, 05:14:28 PMHe's a coach with bonafides in motivation, structural compliance, and accountability. Systems stuff will need to come from the assistants, but we can basically keep most of the same tactics, and just make it more fasstholey.

Treliving and Berube both favour heavier hockey, with big and mobile defenses. This will be the highest end forwards Berube has had.
Top analyst has said Berube is a short play. If he doesn't win and win fast or loses the team quickly he will be gone fast. I don't know just repeating what I read.
Brind'Amour has won squat. Glad is Berube even though I wanted Keefe to have another kick at the can with a couple of tall tree D added and a good Goalie tandem.
the more I read about him, the more I like the pick. Holds players accountable and that is exaclty what a few of these guys need. I wonder how much player input he will have on acquisitions etc with Treviling?

This sucks. :(

Terrible news
Shocked to see this, this morning. By all accounts a wonderful person. Seems his C had spread everywhere. We can all take comfort he will suffer no more.
Don't trade just for Saros, the other pieces that Herman mentions are intriguing.

Quote from: cabber24 on May 16, 2024, 08:58:16 AMHe was named playoff MVP and became the first OHL player to win both regular season and post-season MVP since Mitch Marner did it in 2016, also with the Knights...

I read an article comparing him to Marner, but more physical and willing to go into the corners. 

So the Leafs have their Marner replacement in house. 👍

plug and play!  And at 850K a year.
Boudreau over Carlyle. Any day.

Cowan is playing the top of the PP umbrella so most of these are secondaries

Edit: Knights complete the comeback in 2OT to take a 3-0 series lead in the OHL final
What a bone cruncher for Oshawa. Great comeback and mostly due to Cowan's play
Marner to Rangers for Fox and a 1st
