OK guys, settle down.

They haven’t signed a 4C that’s to our liking yet.

Poor Par Lindholm. Already forgotten.

So two first overall picks in the lineup.  Has that ever happened before?

On the Leafs? Clark and Sundin, for one. Sundin and Nolan, for another.

Sundin and Lindros! I can keep going.

Actually, the 99-00 Leafs had Sundin, Clark and Berard!

Those examples were mostly past their prime by the time they were on the Leafs together.

Oh come on. You have to admit those were some pretty good pulls off the top of my head.

I'm pretty sure the Oilers had like 7 at one point.

Oh yes I will give you that.  I didn't think of those at all, but Lindros in particular was a shadow of his former self.

Don't think Tavares has ever played with a talented winger as Marner. I think he could be looking at a career year in points.

The powerplay and late game line shuffling they can do is insane.

The Lou transfer may have been key here. No longer allowed to wear 91 in New York whole Dubas takes over the Leafs and relaxed those same said rules.
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

So is the consensus that they'll pin the C on him? I heard a rumor that was part of the presentation to him and his agent.

If so, who get's the A's?

Media reported this morning that the C was never part of conversation.

One of the interesting things I've heard kicking around is the idea that the Islanders bringing in Lamoriello and firing Snow actually hurt the Islanders here as Tavares didn't feel like he had a personal obligation to the new group.
