Mantha is out due to getting into his second career fight (defending a teammate) and breaking enough of his hand that it required surgery.

It being a home game, and Matthews still getting back up to speed, I'm thinking the lines will be:

Hyman - Tavares - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Kapanen
Johnsson - Matthews - Nylander
Ennis - Lindholm - Brown

Those are what the lines should be.

I'll play:

Ennis - Tavares - Kapanen
Marleau - Kadri - Marner
Johnsson - Matthews - Nylander
Hyman - Lindholm - Brown

Huh, I've been getting good stuff (OG Kush, Sour Diesel, etc...) for $6-$6.50/g for years...

I did put in an order at OCS, last Thursday, for shits and giggles.....

Still no shipped email (it said 1 - 5 days).
I emailed the 'HelloOCS' email, no replies.
I called the Customer Service line and it tells you to hang up, they can't take any more calls right now...

What a fiasco.
But I knew they would mess this up anyways.

I thought Pot Smokers were just supposed to go with the flow man

I think that's generally true about everything other than procuring pot.

Seriously though, I don't think regular pot smokers are affected by this at all. From the ones I know, most of them are just buying it from their old suppliers.


Ding Ding Ding.... OCS prices are ridiculous....

Username checks out!

Good 'ol double meaning ;p

With Kapanen looking pretty decent alongside Matthews, how about a blockbuster between the Original Six great rivalry, Leafs and Habs.

Nylander to Montreal for Jonathan Drouin. Similar type players, solving Leaf's cap issue. Drouin becomes topline left winger either now or when Marleau retires. Habs with cap space get a guy who can slide into center ice.

I know the Leafs would prefer to shore up the defense but top d-men are hard to come by and there is some promise in the system with Liljegren, Sandin and Durzi.

I just thought this would make an interesting topic for discussion. I think Drouin might be feeling the pressure in Montreal and could use another change of scenery, and thrive with an offensively loaded team like the Leafs. Could he find the same chemistry with Matthews he once had with Nathan MacKinnon?

If such a deal were ever done, would a pick be thrown in by one side, and if so what?

But imagine the comparisons moving forward in Leafs-Habs match-ups? Would be interesting...

Thumbs up or thumbs down?

Huge thumbs down, Druin for Nylander? Really?

Nylander won't be traded, he will get signed soon.

Something I've been thinking about. How long does Mike have?

I'd say two seasons.
If he doesn't bring us the cup or finals, I'd say Dubas may pull the trigger.

Will Sheldon still be here with the organization then, to take over?

What say you?

(I think Sheldon will stay with the organization, on that appeal, to be the next one to run the big club, unless obviously some up and coming team, gives him a real fantastic opportunity, which I don't know who that would be).

Yeah, I don't get it.

Nik has made great points and people gloss over it.

Nylander will get his money, he is worth it. He is not being traded and is not being greedy.
Anyone else would do the same thing.

And all this"Sign Marner and Matthew's now" or "they should have signed Nylander last year" stuff, it doesn't work like that, not with these caliber of players.

They are betting on themselves and are not signing a deal early, when they know they have another year to prove their worth and get their money....

The deals will get done and all 3 will be Leafs for a long time. Book it.

About signing Nylander last year it's a fair question.  Lou was still GM, so it makes sense we wouldn't have heard anything if they were even talking to the agent about an extension, but the old "when you have time use it" crap that Lou spouted seems to have backfired here.  They should have tried to agree to an extension in the summer of 2017 with Willy like other RFAs did (signing their extension with still a year left on their ELC). 

Dubas has made no secret of the fact he's already talking with Matthews and Marner's agents and he hopes to get extensions worked out before next summer, so hopefully it happens sometime in season.  They should have done the same approach with Nylander last year.

Just because they are talking, doesn't mean a discount and TBH, I would be very surprised if M & M signed during the season.
Their agents aren't dumb, again, this isn't middling players.

The numbers Matthews, Nylander and Marner are going to put up this year, will guarantee it won't get done until seasons end for M & M.


You don't know this.   Leafs and agents will use projections to base the framework of the deal, everyone knows what's up.  I have no doubt M&M will get paid but I think it can still happen during the season.

You are right, I do not know this or have any insider info.

But, with the quality of these two players and the depth of this forward group, leads me to believe that these guys are not going to user any projections and will allow their play to dictate their ask during next off season, IMO.

I will be very happy if I am wrong and they can get it done during the season, though.

We shall see.

I don't think Nylander would have signed last off season, after 1 full year and 22 games the previous year, makes no sense from his perspective.
