After weeks of speculation, The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings for Matt Frattin, Ben Scrivens and a 2nd round pick in 2014 or 2015 (Leafs option).
Ron Hextall talks about the trade
With so many Phaneuf haters, it would be funny to see how many fans would be hoping to get him if he were available. I thought he had a solid year though.
What a piece of shit trade, we are in trouble if we keep giving away players like this. Nonis are you out of your fucking mind
can't see bernier and reimer co-existing for long....suspect that nonis thinking of moving reimer while his recent top performance against boston still resonates---who needs a goalie besides edmonton and philly who have assets to trade
philly has simmonds etc--oilers have several young hot shot fwds better than frattin as well as high pick
wouldn't surprise me to see reimer gone before the draft
Welcome to silly season! Phaneuf isn't going to Edmonton, they hate him there.
I don't mind the Leafs going with the Chicago goaltending model. It's worked out alright for them...
Classic Lombardi on the call. He's clearly not happy that the $500K in cap relief aspect came out. Seems he was asked to not mention by TOR
How in fuck did they think they could keep that secret
XProteautype:: NHL people I've talked to say Bernier has a shot at being a big-time impact player. Haven't heard anyone say the same of Frattin/Scrivens.
To SJ: Phaneuf, 3rd To Tor: Pavelski, Burns, 1st.
@Bernier_The_Boats Sick name lolll
@DanielSawler Haha. Still feel that way, bud?
@DanielSawler LMAO. Okkkk there.
@ionsys two Masterton nominees, two young kids on a young team. I'm sure they'll co-exist just fine, no need to create that BS. They're both respectful and blossoming young players, no reason they both cant be huge for our club.
@DJBrianBurke Niceeee ;)
@moimoi Oh yea? I take it your in pretty tight with the New EDM management group that now includes Dallas Eakins? tard....
@Xxxxxnew be-leafing here buddy
@TheCanucksnaphook Sunday bloody Sunday.
@Loric76 phaneuf hasnt been traded yet and reimer is still number one till he loses it
@Xxxxxnew Did we need him though?
@Savo43 Where did you get this from? lol
@Savo43 Pavelski has been a winger for almost 3 years now.
@Savo43 sounds good but burns plays forward now
@mcloki Just talking about the carnage on here today....
@mcloki I thought it was funny..and im sober..
@Cameron19 @Savo43 He was a top pairing Dman in Minnesota, and SJ loved him as a forward, he provided a Byfuglien type effect for them that has been known to defeat the team theyve had the most trouble with in past years (the Vancouver Canucks). Had nothing to do with not trusting him, but believe so if you wish.
@Cameron19 @Savo43 PS: Man, how do you try and get away with saying he's never played against top competition btw? As though you've followed Burns long enough BY THE GAME, to know he doesn't play against top competition. For the love of god. Just cuz you don't like it doesn't mean you should toss out words that aren't even true LOL.
