Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Marner signs 6 year, $10.893mil AAV contract

1.5 M more that Kucherov...nice

Kerfoot was 56% on face-offs last season. Back to back 40-point seasons. Was just over 50% in possession last season. The drop from Kadri to him probably isn't that massive.

Maybe. But I worry we may be judging Kadri too much on a down year.


we wasn't playing top on 2 lines...just isn't suited for 3rd center. flourished in second line roll, which isn't an option in Toronto. if anything Matthews and Tavares will get more minutes this season

NHL Transactions / Re: Kessel to ARI for Galchenyuk

Heard Dreger said the Leafs offered 2.1 per for 2 years and 2.6 per for 4 years at the deadline for Johnsson and he turned it down. There's no way he can get over 2.5 and that's pushing it. He's played 1 year in the NHL.

Looks at Zaitsev contract and runs away

At the end of the day it's a results oriented league.  The Leafs have an expensive team with a lot of talent.  If Babcock can't get them to win in the playoffs, that's going to be the reason he gets fired.  Three straight good regular seasons and an 8-12 record in the postseason.  They either advance in the playoffs this year or he is toast.

Theres at least a 50/50 chance they play Boston again.  You gotta hope that Chara/Bergeron/Krejci start to slow down

*sigh* One can dream...

That basically guarantees hes back

I mean it's not even a "Blundell" scoop... it's written by a guy named Shug. Shug for gods sake!

I suspect the 'little birdie' that provided the information is a concussion related hallucination.

I thought the term "little birdie" went out with the Big Band Era.

Not sure what he means by the leafs eating 2M....after they pay his signing bonus he's only owed 1.25M in real dollars.  Can you retain cap hit and not dollars?

I don't know if I have it in me to watch another game 7 at boston.

Its unlikely to go well.

you also predicted the Leafs would lose in 4 or 5.  so there's that

Hughson wanted that to be a goal so bad..Suck it Hughson

11
And now a 3rd straight penalty to the leafs.  This is real fun.

Whats the ref supposed to do there?

12
So Chara  is ok to slash multiple times with that stick that has a concrete shaft....this is NOT the NBA where "stars" don't get called for fouls...

Blatant dive by Marchand

13
Good job Tavares, not going 4-1

where's the hook on pasternak?

14
Refs cheating again

15
Losers of 10 of their last 14 games.  Just a bad hockey team right now. 

Look for leafs to lose to Boston in 4 or 5 games.

put your money where your mouth is buddy
