Raptors beat Golden State without Kawhi and with Green dislocating JV's thumb.   Nice win.

Dylan Strome:
ARI: 20GP 3G 3A 6P = 24 point pace
CHI: 8GP 4G 1A 5P = 51 point pace

Will be interesting to see if he keeps up that kind of pace.

Haven't seen much of his game but I think he's been pretty bad defensively so not sure if Jason Allison version 2018 is going to have a great future despite some better production in Chicago.

Sportsnet telecasts suck....just saying.

I am sorry but for the record, I'm just writing GDT's for a week. As of yet nobody has put me in charge of deciding which network airs the games.

Get Dubas on the phone to just pay CtB his god damn money.   Cap be damned.  Nik we are trading you to Carolina.  Haven't decided which one yet.

FWIW Carolina colloquially means either one or both together.  But I've never heard anybody use that term in regular conversation.  Unless you are James Taylor being lyric-y you say "Going to [North or South] Carolina."

Indeed. It feels like it was an ill-advised attempt to appeal to fans from both Carolinas when they probably should have worried more about appealing to any fans whatsoever.

I remember years ago when we played against Carolina in the playoffs there was a single Carolina fan who came here for the series.  They were extremely friendly.  Too bad they couldn't have found more fans.

Tulo's value wouldn't be boosted by a good spring training.  His injury issues and reputation as being a soft player are what will hold him back, on top of being extremely expensive.  His bat fell off quite a bit before his trade to Toronto.  He had a few really important hits for the organization but overall was just not a great acquisition.  We wouldn't have received much of value for him in a trade even if we convinced someone to take him on and the benefit of Gurriel getting playing time or giving Travis an opportunity to perform up until his eventual replacement when Guerrero/Bichette/Biggio push into the Majors is more valuable in terms of building a trade asset.

This is a good move by the organization.

So they said something about changing the scoring play on the 2nd goal to give Nylander 2 assists on the night?

BTW that was a nice play by Marleau there to out-wait Mrazek.

Yeah Rielly from Matthews and Nylander

Leafs have now taken more penalties than drawn.   Makes a lot of sense for this team.

Oh look, the Leafs are outplaying another opponent but can't draw penalties.

As usual its all about what have you done for me lately. Glad Tulo helped the Jays make a couple playoff runs, but this guy is just a broken down shell of his former self now.
I honestly don't care about the $38 M, more happy he is gone and that a spot has opened up for Gurriel Jr./Bichette. I also didn't care much for his latest comments saying he would remain a starting shortstop, despite the fact he can't stay healthy...go do it somewhere else then.  ::)
In some ways its like how Donaldson was moved to make way for Vlad Jr.
Really looking forward to seeing the left side of the infield next season!

To answer your question Frank, its all about breaking up that infield log jam. The Jays just don't have the roster space, had 39 of the 40 spots filled prior to this move. Diaz got dealt, Solarte was non-tendered and now Tulo has been released. The Jays needed to flush some of the glut to make way for the young guns. Probably only a matter of time before Travis is gone, likely when Bichette is ready.

Thank you, so if I understand, similar to NHL in terms of roster spot limitations.  Basically just paying a guy full contract value to disappear and make way for new kids.

Is Martin far behind then?

He likely has some form of value either to the team as a player-coach or if the Jays eat salary he is still a capable catcher at a cheaper deal in a trade.

The Marlies are tied for 4th in goals for.  They are also 28th in goals against (and will probably drop to 31st when factoring in games played).  None of their goaltenders have a SV% >.900

When two of your goaltenders have SV% around .860 its hard to imagine that is all on the play in front of them. 

Has it been the appropriate amount of minutes for me to call Nylander a bust yet?

Seems about right. Almost feels like two is just about the minimum suspension length.

Coming off the blind side interference hit that concusses Wilson I’m pretty sure the minimum was no suspension or fine

The message is the league doesn’t know what the hell they are doing

Backed charges and then a predatory hit but hey good job refs.
