Wishing Josh well, hope he gets to play and have a good career. He had a really good attitude
being up/down/up/down/left/right/A/B constantly. Hopefully that rep sees him through the future.

Here's some great old Bob Cole calls. Late nineties / early 2000's for the Leafs. Classics.
The Bob Cole: "HE'S IN!.... scORRrrrRRR" old man tremor is legendary.


His last great moment for the Buds:
He was a good soldier and a good dude during some lean-aysh years.

Best Naz is when he's playing right on the edge but not over. Two straight 32-goal seasons.
He'll be back once this team settles.

Calvin Pickard got rolled on this one.

This one is...

That... may be the most Keystone Cops play I've ever scene. Guy trips over ice and flails around. Other D is lazily like "2-on-1 bro". Jean-Luc beaten low blocker on smoking backhand.

Edit: to be fair I think that patch of ice is cursed. Other guy in 2-on-1 fell down too.

Edit2: thanks for cheering me up after Leafs/Pens Herman.

Leafs is playin' tonite :)
"Toronto goal scored by number thirty-four... AUSTON MATTHEWSSS!"

Here's Gino Reda with some good insight. This is not about this year. This is about contending for the next decade.

And if things do not work out, Lebrun, over at The Athletic opines:

"Would Carolina be willing to move 23-year-old Brett Pesce, for example? Hes in the first season of a six-year, $24.15-million deal, a cap-friendly contract charging $4.025 million a year for a good, young defenceman who would automatically step into Torontos top four. That would surely appeal to the Leafs. Mind you, its also the same reason budget-conscious Carolina loves the player. But for a talent like Nylander, would Carolina bite?"

My preference would still be to keep Nylander (and I really believe they will), but this is one of the few (maybe only) suggestions that I think makes sense for both sides. Pesce is a very underrated defenceman, especially for the analytically-inclined. He also appears to have been bumped down the line-up a bit with the Hamilton trade.

I think Nylander's the more valuable player, so I'd be pushing hard to get something else included in the deal as well, but it's a good starting point if a trade was the only option.

Agreed. Willy is "more" than just a pure sniper. He's in that special class of being able to make something out of nothing 5-on-5. He's a dynamic winger.
