  1. Past hour
  2. NHL Offseason 2019

    Kevin Hayes signs with the Flyers, 7 years, $50 million, AAV $7.14M. Yikes!
  3. Yesterday
  4. NHL Offseason 2019

    Flyers trade 2nd & 3rd to San Jose for Justin Braun, for some reason. Also, TSN Bobby Mac with news teams are bracing for a salary cap just shy of $82-million. Which is not good for the Leafs.
  5. NHL Offseason 2019

    It's ok, boys. Sean Avery said we were getting Jacob Troubda. That's still a done deal.
  6. Last week
  7. NHL Offseason 2019

    Winnipeg trades Jacob Trouba to Rangers for D Neal Pionk & 20th overall pick.
  8. Toronto Raptors Thread

    Shots (reportedly) fired at Nathan Phillips Square during Raptors victory parade. First, it took roughly 5 hours for the parade to make its way to city hall, then shots fired. Speeches going on still, but crowd seems understandably exhausted and probably distracted.
  9. NHL Offseason 2019

    The Sharks are gonna live to regret that one
  10. NHL Offseason 2019

    Karlsson gets 8 years, ~$11-million per year from Sharks. Just like Karlsson, that’s not going to age well.
  11. NHL Offseason 2019

    Erik Karlsson expected to re-sign with Sam José.
  12. NHL Offseason 2019

    An overhyped London Knight. That never happens.
  13. NHL Offseason 2019

    Olli Maata traded to Chicago for Dominik Kahun and a 5th. Wasn't Maata the guy the Leafs absolutely had to get in the Kessel deal?
  14. His price tag must be decent. The pot might be empty by the time they sign Mitch, Kap, Johnsson and replace Z?
  15. NHL Offseason 2019

    Buyouts: Dion Phaneuf (L.A.) & Andrew MacDonald (PHI)
  16. The issue with Hutch is that he’s not very good. Wouldn’t be shocked if he signed to be the 3rd stringer.
  17. Let's not go there again. Is Hutch out of the picture?
  18. Pretty sure his SP% last year was worse than Sparky.
  19. Ol’ Jimmy can’t stay healthy, though.
  20. Wait for Florida to buy out Reimer. Sign for a mil. Bam! Serviceable backup.
  21. Random Thoughts #2

    Of course the Raptors would win the night before the biggest exam of my life.
  22. Pierre Lebrun: Hearing from a few sources that the Maple Leafs have quietly been shopping Garret Sparks. The backup goalie, 25, has one year left on his deal paying him $750k.
  23. topic for discussion: Babcock / Keefe / Leafs

    It was Carlos Pena and unfortunately for Oakland, Pena was far more productive than Hatteberg. The old-school manager was right in this scenario.
  24. NHL Offseason 2019

    Philly trades Radko Gudas (& retains 30%) to Washington for Matt Niskanen.
  25. topic for discussion: Babcock / Keefe / Leafs

    Have you seen Moneyball? There is a pretty good sequence of scenes where Billy wants Art to play Hatteberg at first. But he's a stubborn, old-school manager that knows better. He wants to play the guy he knows (can't remember his name). Keeps playing him despite Billy pleading with him. Over and over. So Billy trades him. He takes his toys away. Forces his hand. I view the Babcock as a similar coach. He has his "veterans" that he goes to. He's done it with Hainsey, Polak, Bozak, etc., and I'm sure he did it in Detroit. He will play those guys over rookies and young kids. He even said something along the lines of "a tie goes to the veteran." What a fucking idiotic policy. What an antiquated, old-school, policy. Apply that to any of the championship teams in the past several years. I'm sure Babcock's value is how he coaches the players he has. However, I would say that his player selection and utilization is a glaring weakness. Look no further than the ice-time Auston Matthews was issued in game 7 against the Bruins. You know who was on the ice when Matthews was on the bench? Patrick Marleau. 39-years of age. 2 points in the playoffs. Nothing against Marleau either. I'm sure he's great with the young guys... but do you want him on the ice in a clutch situation in place of Matthews?
  26. Toronto Raptors Thread

    Defense wins championships.
