Okay this is getting ridiculous (and wonderful)

And I thought he was trying to pass it to Marner ;)

Well that sucks, an eye test is fine Zee....LOL. Keep a keen one on Borg and Rosen

Next season Hainsey will sleep with the fishes.  Perhaps his new D partner would be Dougie Hamilton.

I heard somewhere that the Leafs can still trade Nylander up to the trade deadline. BUT the other team can't play him until next season. Is that correct? And if so would a team out of the playoffs(I'm assuming only a team out of the playoffs would be interested in giving up assets) be willing to do it?
I think I read that they can trade him up to Feb. 15 if they can't sign him. However I believe that he would not be available to that team until the following year (I may be wrong).  If they do trade him then then hopefully they would get an important piece for their playoff run.
 I believe we will reach a 1-3 year contract in the very near future. I don't believe Shanahan or Dubas will trade him if he doesn't sign, but let him sit or play in the KHL.

Nylander's contract dispute was the best thing that ever happened to Kasperi Kapanen.  He doesn't have the same elite level of offensive talent as Nylander, however Kapanen is faster, harder working, much better defensively, bigger and more physical, and more of a team player.  I really like him.

Kapanen reminds me of Hyman and Marner in the sense that he has a relentless work ethic.  He's a fast skater also.  That's the type of player you want on your team, IMO.
Starting to look like a great deal for Kessel,  Freddie A and Kapi came out of it.

•Freddy the Goat watch: Gauthier's CF has gone from 58.44% to 50.68% in a span of just 4 games. His "dominant" season is crumbling before our eyes. Will going up against one of the best possession teams in the league put him below 50% on the season?

Yeah pretty sure the Gauthier group is going to be on the receiving end of a lot of shots, but probably from the points.
time to stick a prod in the Goat, a little electricity may help his motor

What team is going to offer up over 8 Mill for this guy when they basically will have to trade us two of their best players and probably a first to cover it. I just can't see it happening. 
Shanahan and Dubas are going to make him sit a year as an example to the others or let him take his chances flying on Aeroflot.
Its also in the interest of all other GM's

Thanks Stan, I grew up a comic book junkie and had quite a collection. Would have been worth a fortune today, but they went up with the house back in 78 and lost everything.  Learned that things are things and you can always get new things. People that you love, a lot different.

there is talk of Pesce being held out of practice this AM, hope its not related to Nylander.  If he can't come to the table, then let him sit. 

Basically Babcock threw the white flag by starting the backup today.  You have to coach with the intent to win.  Not set your schedule in July and say you have nothing left to do.
I highly doubt Fredo would have won this game, the Leafs stunk.

Sparks maybe should have had the first one, after that the Leafs hung him out to dry.  He should have played the Devils, Freddie the Bruins.

What an idiot TSN reporter reminding Jake Gardner of the game 7 loss in Boston.
Dats da biz! 8)

We can't were out our Fredo, we is going to need him in April/May/June
