  1. Lets drop the personal attacks please. This is the Leafs section not the bitch to/about each other section.

  2. It seems Dubas is bringing in players that will compete. We certainly don't have enough of those type of players on our team. So why the complaining?

  3. i dont understand why everyone keeps saying arimov is a small soft winger. he's 170, 6' at 18.... he'll be 195-200 by 22 easily, and not a single scouting reports that he avoids contact....

  4. The team has regressed, they looked like shit outside of the first 10 games with Keefe behind the bench, the only reason that was put on the backburner was because of Covid, the GM has shown no inclination on knowing how to build an NHL team and hands out cap space like it's meaningless. If you want to wear a badge of honour because the NHL says they made the playoffs in a 24 team playoff by all means but that's head firmly up your ass type stuff. The positives are we have a bunch of good young players, a GM willing to be flexible on his approach, and a coach who seems to be forward thin

  6. No.... Marner is going to be bashed because of a few things. He's a hometown kid who held out demanding unrealistic salary demands. He took zero hometown discount to show his love for his hometown team. Add that to a subpar year and you're going to get thrown under the bus by fans and media alike. You demand big boy dollars, put on your big boy pants and perform, or get ripped on for it.

  7. Lol. Marner is garbage? Geezus, there are maybe 5 players in the league that don't wish they had his edge work and touch on the puck. He had a down season after signing a monster contract. Try not to be so short sighted. I realize that all the social media warriors are pushing this narrative, but they're idiots that don't know hockey. Try watching and understanding the game before forming these ridiculous opinions.

  10. well, threads are organic things that change over time AM. sometimes when one group of posters posts, and then another takes over and responds, and then after that another takes up from there, the original meaning of the thread can get lost. i'm not sure anyone knows what this thread was even supposed to be about anymore, so it's not just me. the one problem is that i'm a maverick AM, and everyone around here is so stuffy and boring, trying to control us and want us to be robots. well i work all day and study all night, non stop, so i'm tired, but this thread is a thread about people LIV

  12. If you told me years ago the Leafs had Spezza, Thornton, Tavares, and a 1st overall pick capable of scoring 50 goals at centre, in addition to Wayne Simmonds, I'd call you a liar. This team has come a long way from the John Mitchell days at 1C.

  13. That's an entirely different line of reasoning, though. 100% you can say he had a bad year and that's unacceptable given his payrate. You can't (validly) say that one sub-par seasons means that he's "shit".

  18. Awesome. In their 8 mins of ice time, one of them might make it from one end of the ice, all the way to the other. Not every game of course; it’s a long season gotta pace yourself. But it could happen.

  20. In the 45 years i have followed this team. I bet i could easily count the number of good goaltenders on one hand we have had on this team. Andersen is better than you give him credit for.

  21. I think any team would happily have Marner at 9.5M, there's no way it would take at least 3M of retained salary. Get real man. I'm sure there's multiple teams willing to deal for him even without having us retain any salary as long as there's a bad contract coming our way. A 23 year old who's put up over a PPG the past two years and plays in all game situations doesn't just grow on trees.

  22. So, while you can't blame Dubas for COVID and the shutdown, or for the mess that Lou left re Zaitsev and Marleau, you totally can blame him for gambling so hard on the cap rising. It is not and never has been a fait accompli that it simply rises year on year. There ought to have been a backup plan and it does not appear that there was, or is.

  23. He's the most tradeable of the big 4, based on his contract and the flat cap. I think it's that simple.

  25. Apparently it's only 700k salary too, so it doesn't mess with our cap if things don't work out.

    So where are all the trades that’re supposed to be furiously occurring? How will free-agency period go if no one’s made any pre-emptive moves? How do you dole up big money with a ton of contracts you still need to off-load? Wtf is my frantic movement I’ve been promised, and when will it begin?

  34. Ya...this board suffered majorly from we haven't heard of him so we don't like him syndrome on Brodie. Haha. Dude is solid. Also I like the Simmonds signing too. Sure not so much on the dollars, but screw it. It's a year. Bring on the Kerfoot and Johnsson trade dumps.

  36. That's the only part of your post that matters. I So, hes done that, traded Kadri for Barrie et al., and traded for Muzzin. None of you can fucking say with a straight face that he sits on his ass without lying through your teeth.

  38. Did Todd take over your account? You can judge the effectiveness of each move but those are both significant moves. Adding Muzzin? Also significant.

  39. With rumors Savard and Weeger are available I think we go in all in after them. Weeger especially. We need a solid D to play top pairing with Rielly. That's him. If we get Savard and Weeger we can use either one with Muzzin or Rielly. We would solve our whole RHD problem. We'd have to get rid of two of Johnson, Kerfoot and Holl/Dermott to fit them but I think it's worth it. I hope we can score one at least.

  40. Our top pair is a hot mess and needs to be addressed. Year after year of playing Rielly with utter trash is just wasting his talents and the team's window. As I said before, Gudas would be an ok add. But Dubas needs to fucking step up and get creative. I'm tired of watching the shitshow.

  41. Every player we have picked is currently playing. I think our management thinks there is a high enough chance the OHL and WHL might not play this year. That would e extremely detrimental to a lot of these players development at this age. Smart move IMO

  42. Anyone with half a brain (so about 20% of this forum) knows these guys won't help now. The point is, it's not just an organizational need NOW. It's been an organizational need for DECADES. Anyone who can't see that needs to go back and retake Toronto Maple Leafs 101.

    Lets relax here. Nobody we drafted would be making an impact for another 3 seasons. 2 if we were lucky. We need players (D) who will help us win tomorrow.

  47. It's not just about adding value. I mean okay at least he did not lose value but those are not "great" trades. The more important aspect is being able to identify what a team needs to move forward and making the right moves. He has utterly failed to this. Burkie made some "great" trades too. There's a lot more to just not losing value in trades and when it's countered with a loss of value like in the Kadri trade, well it's just not that good. Again, this comes back to Dubas' inability or inexperience at knowing how to identify what it takes for an NHL team to progress and we have what we se
