    Draft Pick
  1. No coach can MAKE a team play with heart and unfortunately this team doesn't. I think Babcock is sending them a message and I hope it gets through. All this Babcock hate is funny. Why not get a little miffed at the silly players who are the ones at fault. I had a team like this once and I let them reap the rewards of their poor play. Funny after a while they actually listened and by the end of the season were a solid team. Patience, you all were expecting too much too fast.
  2. I wonder if this Leafs team is ready to listen to their coach yet. Babcock has been warning them to play by his system but the fast start makes for deaf players. Time to wake up and play right. Sooner learn that now than in the playoffs

    Any word on whether Brown has been signed yet?
  4. Leafs sign Patrick Marleau

    If I am to believe everyone of those fancy stats then I guess I do not have to watch any more because the stats already say the Leafs made a mistake. I am so glad I just like watching them play and although the stats have value, I think I will enjoy the changes that they have made. I plan on just enjoying them and have confidence that the Leaf management and coach know a lot more than I do. I do find it funny that a week ago a lot of people were not happy because the Leafs had not made a splash.....Now they have made one and surprise, some people are not happy. Just enjoy the ride......

    If we go back a few years we would all be waiting with baited breath for the Leafs to sign our next saviour. That is how desperate we were. Now we have a good young team that should keep getting better. We have a AHL team with some decent prospects. I love the patience the Leafs are showing and I can wait till the right deal or player is acquired. Let other pay through the nose for players. Keep watching that salary cap:)
  6. Leafs 2017 Draft

    I love the fact that TML have taken a high risk high reward pick with #17. Could be a huge selection but it might be a bust. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Hunter does seem to have a nose for quality so I am great with this pick. Looking forward to seeing what else they come up with today. On the trade front, I am loving TML patience as some of these prices thrown around have been huge. Why give away the store? They signed two undrafted Swedes and an unsigned Chicago pick already and these guys are projected to be playing two years from now. We have some talent on the farm team so why not try some of them. Scouts are saying Timothy will be ready in a year too. Patience!!!!!!

    I one hundred per cent agree. Although there is always a chance one of these guys will work out well, we are loaded with other to take their place. I think Vegas is using the rape method of getting ahead. I cannot blame them but some of these asking prices are way high. Teams throwing around first rounders like Toronto did years ago. Stay the course, lose your one player and focus on the draft and maybe a decent hockey trade or two.
  9. Not sure at that but I like what I see management doing. These two guys have good potential and did not cost us any talent. I will hope one of the two makes next years team and if both do fantastic. But lets not forget those guys down on the Marlies. I figure one of them are coming up too. Say good bye to Polak and Maricin.
  10. Niskanen was trying to make Crosby pay for being where he was, no doubt. Hockey play in the playoffs..... However when his stick made contact with Crosby's head, thats five and a game and possibly a suspension. A player must have control of his stick at all time. But I think Ovie needs a mention here too. For a super star to use his stick like he did on Crosby is just wrong. Time for someone to have a little talk with him. Body checks are ok but using that stick around the face and eyes, not cool.

    I hope the Leafs stay calm and stick to the long term plan. Draft well and train well and use your own players as much as possible. I cannot see giving up too many of our young talent for a Dman unless the deal is too good to pass up. I can wait a bit longer if we build a team that can contend for many years to come.
  12. I am glad the Leafs ended up playing Washington in the first round. This wasn't our year to go all the way so what better way to learn than by going up against the best and the beast on Ovie. The team did amazingly well but the weak spots are exposed and the Shanny plan is still under way. I expect some changes next season but not as many as most of you. I think the Leaf management are not doing to change for sake of change but rather pick there spots. Matthews is a so in for the Calder. The play offs removed all doubt. What a blast this last week has been.....already looking forward to next years play offs:)
