Marlies & Prospect Talk / Ranking Prospects - 2017-18
« on: July 04, 2017, 01:36:44 PM »
Top 25 under 25 should be kicking into gear towards the end of the month.
Check out last season's thread to see the changes in our pipeline. It's not as drastic a difference as last offseason's makeover. This offseason is still young and the situation in certain tiers is still fluid.

General NHL News & Views / 2017 Off-season Trades/Signings Discussion
« on: June 10, 2017, 08:57:34 AM »
With the Expansion Draft looming on the heels of the Finals, and the NHL prospect draft shortly after that, it's going to be make or break time for GMs and their staff.

Kicking things off are the Blackhawks with a soon to be confirmed shakeup to their core:

« on: December 17, 2016, 06:37:46 PM »
Needed a place to jot down some interesting names for the draft in 2017 for the less obvious choices down the line.

Looking at defensemen that interest me at the moment, because they're harder to track just from the stats. I don't watch any of the games, so I'm just making stabs in the dark while blindfolded with laser pointers pointed in. This is just my list of names to youtube once in awhile.

Cal Foote: Son of Adam, big RHD, sound defensive-minded, surprisingly mobile with offensive-upside.
Cale Makar: small, smart, skilled, playmaking RHD in AJHL; getting hyped by Bob.
Artyom Minulin: very smart RHD, excelling despite playing on a weak Swift Current squad, good all-round puck mover
Josh Brook: RHD, smart, smooth skating, distributes well, heavy wrister; points spiked this year compared to last
Conor Timmins: RHD on the SSM Greyhounds, heady, consistent, plays all situations
Brinson Pasichnuk: blueline triggerman (LHD), physical, undrafted last year

10-9-4, 24 points | 10-12-2, 22 points

Line-up Notes
•Most of the Leafs should be fresh for this game, since they didn't play the last one.
•Though they were held scoreless, Nylander, Matthews, and Marner combined for 14 of the team's 39 shots on goal.
•Last time these two teams met on Nov. 1st, they combined for 171 penalty minutes, 157 of which came in the third.

•The Canucks are coming off a 3-1 Thursday loss to the Anaheim Ducks, who previously helped them kick off a 9-game losing streak. Vancouver had been 6-3-1 in their last ten up until then.
•The NHL will have extra eyes at and on this game due to the shenanigans of the two teams' previous meeting, and Gudbranson declaring to anyone that could hear him that "Matt Martin's dead".
•It's Hunlak vs Hutbranson going head to head for the lowest CF% pairing prize.


•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ - Out indefinitely
•Stephane Robidas - Old - Out indefinitely
•Josh Leivo - Inconvenient - Injured Reserve
•CarltonTheBear - Personal Leave - Day-to-day
•Anton Rodin - Thinking - Out indefinitely

General Info / Making Tables
« on: November 30, 2016, 09:57:03 AM »
I had been doing them by hand like a sucker pretty much since I started here. Well no longer. Not when there are computers that can do our bidding.
Sometimes you'll want to present a lot of aligned data, for example from a spreadsheet program (like Excel, OpenOffice Calc, etc.) and it can be a pain in the neck to present it on a forum or wiki in a friendly-to-read way. Maybe you'll just want to convert it to HTML but those programs always add a lot of weird formatting.

This page is here to help you out! After five easy steps below you'll just need to copy/paste the result to where you need it posted and you'll have a nice, neat table :-)

Also: In case you were misled by the title and really wanted to make a table in meat space:

Line-up Notes
•Leafs washed out most of the McDavid hype on the back of Andersen's tremendous performance in a penalty-filled affair, and a balanced attack up and down the lineup. They are now 2-5-4 on the road this year.
•4th line centre extraordinaire, William Nylander, is tearing up the road splits, with 12 of his 16 pts in 11 road games. First line centre, Auston Matthews, is also a road warrior, with 13 of his 18 pts coming on the road.
•Leafs now have 3 double-digit goal scorers in Matthews, JvR, and Kadri, each from different lines.

•Calgary is back home after a 6-game Eastern road trip (3-2-1) and looking to bounce back from two straight losses to the Flyers and Islanders
•The season series with the Leafs was split last year, with Calgary taking their home game with a 4-3 win.


•Nathan Horton - Back - Out indefinitely
•Joffrey Lupul - ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ - Out indefinitely
•Stephane Robidas - Old - Out indefinitely
•Josh Leivo - Inconvenient - Injured Reserve

•Johnny Gaudreau - Finger - Injured Reserve
•Lance Bouma - Shoulder - Out indefinitely
•Ladislav Smid - Neck - Out for the Season

Line-up Notes
•Leafs kick off a three-game Western road trip by revisiting the McDavid v Matthews non-story
•Nylander returns to the lineup after sitting for an undisclosed upper-body injury suffered in practice prior to Saturday's game
•Babcock has been looking to get Soshnikov more minutes, and Saturday's game was an 'outstanding' enough performance for the coach to keep the most annoying line together
•Matt Martin is on fire, putting his 2-game goal scoring streak on the line. Oh yeah, Matthews too.

•Edmonton is licking its wounds after losing both games of the home-and-home to the Arizona Coyotes
•Connor McDavid is riding a 5 game point streak since coming out of a protracted 10-game goal-scoring slump, including the hat trick to break the slump (5G/5A in last 5)
•Edmonton is still The Worst

General Rumours & Speculation / Dougie Hamilton
« on: November 16, 2016, 04:47:08 PM »
Like the Jones, Vatanen/Lindholm, Trouba threads before...

Last time Hamilton was traded:
Calgary acquired defenseman Dougie Hamilton from the Boston Bruins in a trade for their first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2015 NHL Draft and the two second-round picks (Nos. 45 and 52) they previously acquired from the Washington Capitals.

He's currently 23 at 5.75M until 2020-21.

What are our chances?

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Nazem Kadri
« on: November 03, 2016, 10:34:39 AM »
I had been hesitant to start up a thread about Kadri in the past, not knowing how much longer he would be on the roster. Now that he's signed for 6 years at a team (and player) friendly rate, and fresh off a statement game that put to bed a media manufactured frenzy over 1st overalls*: here come the Nazem Kadri love letters.

Kadri is the fulcrum down the middle for Toronto this season. The expectation is that he will take on all the tough head-to-head assignments — thereby creating an easier NHL transition for the Nylanders, Matthews and Marners of the roster — and produce like a top-six center in the process. That’s no mean feat, especially when the Leafs’ go-to defence pairing remains a work in progress.


[Outside] of two off-nights in Winnipeg and Chicago (inevitably, it’s going to go sideways some games against top competition), the results through ten games are encouraging. In the early going, Kadri is keeping top centers off the board with some consistency at even strength — despite a slow start by the Leafs goalies — and he has been carrying an edge in possession in his primary matchups while chipping in four even-strength points and four powerplay points in ten games.


I’m almost shocked how good he’s been. And competitive, and greasy.
– Mike Babcock on Nazem Kadri

Leafs Media Rumours / Anaheim Scouting Leafs games: Lindholm? Fowler?
« on: October 25, 2016, 10:27:29 AM »
Lance Hornby noted Ducks' scouting presence on the Leafs' most recent western road trip.

Ducks in cap trouble with Lindholm still waiting for a contract while the team is only about 500k under the cap at the moment.

The 'will' here, btw should say 'willing'
