  1. He really is. Leafs franchise leader in single season EN goals at 6 1 more and he joins NHL ranks like Bure,Lemieux,Tkachuk....and Grabner.
  2. 2nd career goal, 1st of year....Leafs let goals in for guys who need it.
  3. If you could read lips, you could tell that fan behind the glass was way too into that scrum.
  4. Leafs winning AND outshooting opponents by alot? So they might have had it in them all along? Or Babcocks playbook just didn't call for outshooting opponents.
  5. Kind of sad to think that winning tonight would make it the first time the Leafs have ever swept the Sabres in a season.
  6. Biagini,Mayza and McKinney have secured a roster spot on opening day. Grichuk and Pompey are the only Jays on 40 man roster who are out of options. Grichuk obviously is sticking around, so looks like Pompey will end up on waivers, not that anyone will claim him. But good sign that no roster decision will be made simply because of guys out of options. 4 more days of games before the Montreal games, so obviously we'll find out soon enough about who's on the roster.
  7. https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1739579 Leafs among teams with interest in Justin Brazeau. 21 year old winger in the OHL who has 61 goals and 113 points. He's also 6'6 225lbs.
  8. Nylander has gotten 19pts his past 25 games. Given that his first month or two was basically pre-season for him, those are more like his real numbers (his .75PPG). And also leads the Leafs in Corsi. 7M for a guy who leads your team in Corsi while also averaging out to 60+ points a season while only being in his early 20s, how is that so bad? If there was no potential cap issues with Leafs, would anyone have a problem with paying a guy like that 7M a year?
  9. Dillion with 3.27M contract and Marleau with 6.25M cap hit. If Leafs need to retain even 3M of Marleaus contract, that still wouldn't be so bad. Cap wise we'd be the same, but just moving some money around in a way so we have more money on D, and can bring up another forward from the AHL making 800k. There might be better guys, but chemistry is also really important. Bringing Marleau back in the fold, who knows, maybe Thornton might take a bigger discount to try and fit a Marleau acquisition in. Cap wise if Leafs retain, it'd be about 3.25M or so Sharks would take on, but salary wise would be a max of 1.25M they'd have to actually pay him. Maybe conditional pick going Sharks way, where the better Marleau/Sharks do, worse of a pick Leafs have to give up.
  10. I still don't think Marleau contract was so bad. If he does want to go anywhere after this year, he can, after his signing bonus kicks in. If he wants to return to Sharks and Sharks have cap space, I don't see much problem getting a deal done. If Sharks need to shed some space, perhaps Dillon could be part of deal seeing how he's their 3rd pairing dman making over 3M in his final year (and their top 4 are obviously playing heavy minutes).
  11. I think peoples expectations have been different than they probably should have been. Leafs got lucky with that 2017 playoff spot(OTL actually worked in our favor). If they only made playoffs in 2018, I think expectations this year even after getting Tavares would've been alot different. A 4 year period isn't so bad. Pens took 4 like you mentioned, Hawks won 3 years after Kane/Toews made debuts. Kings won first cup 4 years after Doughty was drafted (prior 2 years they lost in 1st round in 6 games). We're only in year 3. Made playoffs 3 times of those 3 years, which is more than any of those teams can say. Hawks did win in year 3, but they were a 40 win 9th seed team before winning lottery and drafting Kane, and Hawks won 3 cups in 6 years, but from a wider perspective, in those non cup winning years from 10-17 they lost in first round 4 times. So even with a cup contending team, it's so easy to lose in round 1.

    Didn't know MLB players were allowed to restructure deals like that.
  13. Flames will be wearing their retro jerseys for all home playoff games. In the future I hope they just go back to that look full time. Home and away can be the red/yellow look. Alternates could be their red/black look.

    Trout staying in LA. Re-signs for 12 years, 430M! It'd begin in 2021 and run until he's 40(technically would be 41 at end of that season).
  15. Get these things out if way now. If it's the wakeup call the team need to beat the Bruins, then I'll take it.
  16. I'm really hoping we could see Sandin and/or Liljegren on our team next year. Not that they should be rushed, but if they're actually good enough to play in the NHL, then by all means bring them in.
  17. He's still technically a rookie, so cant act like this will always be what he's like. In all his starts, I'd say 6 are ones he played well enough to win(0-2GA), 5 bad enough to lose(5+ GA), and 3 could go either way(3-4GA). As a backup, you want his seasonal average to be at least a point per start. He's gotten Leafs 15pts in 14 starts. I said it awhile back, he ranks around middle of the league in terms of backups. So a rookie goalie is an average backup goalie league wide. Not the worst situation to be in. Sure, easy for some to wonder why they didn't keep McElhinney, but he's a 35 year old goalie who posted a .910Sv% 3 times in his career. Who would've bet money he'd be doing what he's done this year? He faces about 29.5 shots compared to 33 for Sparks. If Leafs let Sparks go and he put up even similar numbers to Mcelhinney, there'd be fans mad at Dubas for getting rid of him in favor of a guy who's 10 years older.
  18. Travis likely out until at least May. I'd imagine Urena gets a spot for sure now.
  19. With 2 guys out, we have 3 of our 6 dmen being guys who shouldn't be on roster to begin with. Besides re-signing our FA forwards, Leafs better go all out getting good NHL dmen. 3 straight seasons of being a playoff team while having the same obvious weakness known league wide. Imagine in Andersen faces under 30 shots a game? People can hate on Sparks all they want too, but unless he's getting a shutout or allowing 1 goal on 44 shots, we weren't winning that game. Can't score if you don't have the puck.
  20. Look at brightside. If Leafs win even 1 of first 2 games vs Bruins, it becomes a best of 5 with 3 of those games in Toronto.
  21. Sounds like Gardiner might not be ready anytime soon. Dermott could be back soon. And Rosen could be ready in a week.
  22. 15-4 in shots... I don't care what happens in playoffs, they better do major changes in offseasons. How do you win if other team out shoots you 90% of the time.
