  3. 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.

  4. So apparently Spezza offered Thornton his #19. He said he had too much respect for Joe not to. Thornton declined and said he was not going to do that.

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

  6. yeah, I tend to agree, but then on the other hand he was *on-pace* for what, 16 goals? and only actually scored 8 goals last season. and then did put up 0 goals and 0 points in the playoffs, so then i think, why does he derserve anything more then 1-1.2?

  7. According to CapFriendly TO has $1.49 mil. cap space right now, this is with 7 d-men counting against the cap. 2 of those d-men can be demoted to the "A" like Sandin and Lehtonen which would add another $1.8 mil. to the cap space total which means TO could have $3.5 mil. of cap space. Mikheyev probably will get around $1.8 which leaves $1.5 for Dermott, very doable, I'd say. Normally an arbitrator will split the difference between what the team is offering, TO at $1 mil., and what the player is asking for. Mikheyev, $2.7 mil. Mikheyev doesn't have enough of a caser to perhaps even justi

  10. Brett Hull is a good example of this. He literally made his career with this in mind. IMO PM mismanaged Laine. He will go elsewhere and light the league on fire.

  11. Laine doesn't need to develop defensive game. He's a hired gun. He literally just needs to score goals and make a PP absolutely terrifying for the opposition. Some players fit within a very specific role. He can be one of the best in the game at that role when people stop trying to change him.

  13. I wonder why stupid people who have spent more time developing their defence-mechanisms than their knowledge-base or minds always accuse people who correct their obvious twaddle of being 'obsessed' with them.

  16. If they can still play, who cares? They have two players over 35 making league minimum. Like this team evidently lacked some veteran presence and experience, they add some, and now we’re questioning how much they need?

  19. 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.

  20. but only at surface level. what he really was pushing for was the babcock show. the "i don't care that you're far and away my best player, and that if you don't show up big the team isn't going anywhere regardless of who i have surrounding you, you're gonna play 16 minutes. and when we're down and i need you more than ever, i'll still keep you on the bench just to show you who's boss. just like i showed modano who's boss, in a meaningless game, that meant literally nothing, so that I could rob him of 1500 games." the "we're down 4-1 in the final elimination game of the playoffs, and act

  22. Is it the skill that you hate? I think it might be the lack of determination that sometimes accompanies the skill. After all, grit is just determination. The best players are the ones with the most determination. That's the way it's always been.

  27. So, if we truly are done the question is: Is Brodie + Bogosian better than Barrie and Ceci? (and before you say a resounding "YES" remember how we all felt about our shiny new toys last offseason with those two..) Because I don't think we've upgraded our D as much as we need to. The forwards we added also aren't exactly defensively sound, either.

  28. I really hope Marner is dedicating this off-season into building some muscle. He's probably got one of the weakest shots in the game. Not to mention how much criticism he received due to his poor play, he needs to bounce back strong.

  33. Engvall is waiver exempt and would count for 125K against the cap if sent down IIRC. He'd be good injury insurance. Pretty happy they have more quality options to work with this season.

  37. Anyways, I don't entirely hate having Thornton. I think he and Spezza will rotate in and out often along with somebody else who might be struggling. I doubt we see both dressed for many games too often. I guess it depends on our cap room and whether we can carry a 13th forward. I think our core needs another voice or two in there. I just don't see a true leader in Tavares. Albeit, Jumbo Joe doesn't really have a successful resume in terms of winning it all.

  38. Jumbo signed 1 year.. yeah, very quiet eh @JockDent. It's almost as if it's like fake, you always hear people are right at least like 1 out of 10 times, but you, holy. you're the exception and are wrong 10 out of 10 times.

  45. 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.
