The kids have no heart. Trade them all. Coaching and management can go too.
Ridiculous..

After he gets paid his $9,608,000 signing bonus on July 1st Marner will have just $24.8mil left on his contract spread over 4 seasons.

You know, if anybody was wondering.

On that note.  I really think that making the playoffs in Matthews and Marners first season is where this thing went off the rails.  I think that it has lead them to believe that they just will always make the playoffs, and maybe they don't respect it as much as they need to.

Another obvious hold there by Chiarot.

Finally. Though if that was the first period and it was tied that wouldn't have been called.

This team just absolutely wilts under pressure. It’s quite extraordinary.

Gotta change something, just not sure what. This feels like a psychological issue rather than a talent issue.
Psychological is sometimes more powerful than physical. If they don't have the fortitude then who cares how much skill they have?

Another weak call.  But you take it

Guess I didn’t know what I was talking about but even with the injuries they should have put this series away. If they don’t make some major changes with this core I don’t know what to say. Fukn losers. Thank god I stopped watching early in the series.

But what exactly do you want them to do?  Which one do you want them to trade, and how?

Assuming they lose...the only core piece who should be considered would be Marner, but it would have to be a really good deal. I think maybe you give this group one more year, tweaking around the edges. Replace slow/unproductive players like Thornton and Simmonds with younger, quicker ones. Bring back Spezza, maybe Galchenyuk. Re-sign Hyman only if it is a deal that fits in, we can't mortgage the future to keep him. He's not going to age well and appears to already have lost a step. And hope like heck a couple of younger players (Robertson maybe) are ready to step in and play a regular role.

Thoughtful reply and I agree with so much of what you say but i’ll throw it out there....in trading a superstar (current anger aside) when has the team trading the superstar ever came out ahead? Can’t think of one but people here will likely come up with some examples

Bruins traded Thorton, and then 4 short years later, they won the cup.

IIRC, none of the players acquired were any kind of difference makers?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

I think they may have finally turned up. Hopefully 9 minutes is enough.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

The collapse of the PP is maybe the most frustrating thing of all about this team.  It's almost unbelievable that it could be so bad for so long.

This is likely the last few minutes of Thornton's career, since the Leafs shouldn't re-sign him and I can't imagine any other team wanting him either.

Weak? That was literally textbook interference.
