Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Leafs Re-Aquire David Clarkson

What the last 24 hours have hammered home is, it was way easier being a hockey fan when I was a kid.  You didn't have to worry about cap hits, contract values etc.  You either had good players or bad players and whether your favorite guy made $10M or $1M it didn't really matter cause they were part of the team.  Every trade was only scrutinized insofar as the play on the ice.  Now it's a whole different ballgame, being cap compliant, having dead money on the cap, sending guys up and down for cap savings etc.  It's all so stupid.  I just want to see them play.

So so so true. I AGREE 100%.

Say what you want but before I leave on my vacation, I need to say this.  I think all the players today are greedy, I think Marner should take at most 6.5 for 7-8 yrs up front like the usual, then in his next deal he goes after the bigger money.  This way all the players can be signed to a fair deal leaving the team to build a contender for years to come. So say at the end of the day when the deal is signed Mitch has 40 mil to toss in the bank, what the heck is wrong with that. invest well and he is set for life plus he would still have a better payday in 7-8 years. and some very nice rings i am sure of.

But we all know shit does not work that way anymore.  so I will still hope for 8.5 and a cheap one year deal to grab Gardner, then I would say we will be "thee team" to beat for the cup.

Cheers and enjoy your summer everyone..

I think 6-7yrs at 8.5mil. Then we sign Gardner on a one yr cheap deal.  I have a hunch this is all about squeezing Gardner in. After all he is still out there, and wants to stay. Then our D would be unreal, and we could take a real run at the cup.


Why post stuff we can not read unless we buy a subscription. 

Some of us have a subsciption.

No insult intended, but if we can't read it then don't post it here, as it's a waist of space. I don't have money to burn so i don't go to Tim Hortons, but if I do have spare coin I send it here as this is my Leaf news spot, and has been so, just about since the site opened.

GLG.... All in boys. Get er done.

Please, please Hockey gods give us this win, as a leaf fans we have suffered long enough.

On that note I am all in and ready for 3pm. GLG...............

Leafs in 6 is my call. I just feel there due.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Backup battle brewing???
« on: January 06, 2019, 12:20:23 PM »
Looks like we may have found a better backup goalie then Sparks.  Imo Sparks was not very confident when in the net for us, and so far Hutch Looks like he has all kinds of it.  I am liking his style, he stands up much better in the net.  Sparks tends to drop to his knees and backs into the net way to quick and often.

Looks like sparks may loose his job. Hutch is looking very good.

I hope he gets with the program and does a deal that helps the team, like Tavares did.  I can see Mitch and Austin doing it.  Nylander worries me as I think him and his agent think he has earned more then he has. Trust me he had better be on Board. As I want a cup and I hope greedy players don't stop it from happining.

Well then they should not be called prospects. Imo if you are on the Leafs you are not a prospect, you are one of the team.

Are prospects not players in our system, but not yet on the team?. If so them why are players on the Leafs on this list.
