  1. It's going to be interesting.... Nylander's agent had radio silence and Marner's agent is doing the opposite. 95% of Leaf nation rallied against Nylander, and his agent wasn't antagonizing or vocal. I don't think we're going to see the same rally against Marner though, because Mitch is Canadian and grew up a Leaf fan. That settles a lot of nerves for people that happen to be both Leaf fans and Ford supporters.
  2. Leafs re-sign Auston Matthews

    This contract was actually a good deal for both sides. When you consider that an 8 year deal would have cost them much more, this 5-year deal is the right balance. In terms of % of the cap, this Matthews contract is much closer to the deal that Rick Nash signed than any of Stamkos, Crosby, Kane/Toews, etc. You can't really overpay your star players. You pay them what they're worth. Matthews deserves this contract.
  3. Bold predictions Thread - 2018/19

    One of those teams may or may not be trading two of their best players before the deadline.
  4. Bold predictions Thread - 2018/19

    Don't look now, but the Flyers have won 8 in a row! Carter Hart seems to have been the solution. My Sens/Canucks predictions aren't too bad either. My Tampa prediction is holding up too. I'm not so sure on my Nylander/Kadri predictions, and I rally doubt Carey Price gets traded.
  5. Ah... still below average!
  6. Uhh... His record as a Leaf is 3-4 with a 3.27 GAA and a 0.887 SV%. He was a terrible relief goalie for the Leafs.
  7. If I was the GM of another team, I would absolutely take a chance on Nylander. Especially if it didn't take much in return.
  8. The Panthers are a one-line team. Being able to put Barkov against the Tavares line was a huge plus for the Panthers... especially with Matthews coming off injury and Nylander coming off a signing. Plus the Leaf powerplay was in the shitter when they played in Florida. Losing that ability to line match and having no depth on their team just killed them. Plus Matthews was on fire last night... as was the Leafs PP.
  9. I mean... Vasilevsky stood on his head. They hit the post 3 or 4 times. They played well. Ran into a hot goalie. Freddie was slightly below average.
  10. Random Thoughts #2

    Awesome... congrats man!
  11. I don't really buy this. It's a very "Don Cherry" way of looking at hockey. If anything, what I noticed in the Bruins game was that the Leafs deviated from playing their skill game - where they excel, and tried to play the "bang em up" game the Bruins are used to. The Leafs are built for speed and skill and need to stick to that. If they bring in one or two more physical guys, it's not going to change the way that Marner, Matthews, Nylander, Tavares, etc. play. The Leafs have some big bodies... they just need to use them a bit more. That said... I am going to point out (yet again) that the Leafs should never have let Boyle go. He was PERFECT for their fourth line. Big body, can kill penalties, can win faceoffs, willing to fight, etc. Perfect for this team. And they let him walk.
  12. He did not look great in Philly. I'm a little more upset about losing McBackup than Pickard.
  13. I hate that Leivo never really got a fair shake with the Leafs, but he will likely join Peter Holland, Mike Santorelli, and Richard Panik on the long list of third and fourth liners that the Leafs have had to move that went on to do very little. I'm glad the Leafs did him a solid and moved him out instead of dicking him around.
  14. No doubt. I used to be an Oilers fan, but outside of some of the actual players, I can't stand that entire organization. From the fans to the management to the coaching staff... it's such a shit show. And how do you cheer for players like Lucic and Kassian?
