Leafs Announce Training Camp Roster

Leafs Announce Training Camp Roster

No surprises, unless inviting pretty much every member of the organization plus the rookie camp invitees and Mason Raymond is a surprise. Among the undrafted and unsigned are Matt Rupert, Zachary Yuen, Trevor Murphy and Kevin Raine. Raymond is the lone attendee on a PTO.

Nazem Kadri and Cody Franson are on the roster, of course, but will likely not attend tomorrow unless something changes with their contract situations. The players will do their physicals and meet with the media tomorrow before their first on-ice sessions on Thursday at 9 a.m. at the Mastercard Centre.

40 Canadians, 10 American and 6 other. 34 / 10 / 5 after cuts. It reminded me of the 06/07 team that Carlyle took to the cup, which had 17 Canadians, 4 American and 3 other. I've been hoping for years that the leafs would pick up more Canadians, this year they'll have a good percentage of Ontario born players.

Good article on phaneuf key points are

A list of defensemen with 100-plus goals and 230-plus assists since Dion Phaneuf came into the league in 2005-2006. Clue: it’s a two-player list that includes Phaneuf and one of the best defensemen of the last 20 years.

Dion Phaneuf has a higher career points/game average (0.57) than Pittsburgh’s Kris Letang (0.54) who, by the way, will have a $7.25 million cap hit for eight years after the 2013-2014 season.

Phaneuf came into the league the same year as Shea Weber – who has a cap hit of $7.85 million for 14 years—and has 49 more points as Weber in his career.

Phaneuf has 10 more career games than Ryan Suter. Phaneuf has 70 more career points than Suter. Suter will have a $7.538 million cap hit per year for the next 13 years.

Both Duncan Keith and Phaneuf came into the league in 2005-2006; Phaneuf has 47 more career goals and 31 more career points than Keith. By the way, Keith has 10 years at an annual cap hit of $5.5 million left.

Phaneuf trails only Nicklas Lidstrom in total 9-plus goal and 30-plus point seasons since Phaneuf came into the league at 7-6 (Phaneuf also tied with Dan Boyle and Zdeno Chara).

Phaneuf will be tied with a few other players as the 20th highest paid defenceman in the NHL this year.

Weber and Suter will make more than twice what Phaneuf will be paid.

Enstrom, Boyle, Bouwmeester, Garrison, Meyers, Kronwall, Green, Coburn, Meszaros and Carle are among those making more money than Phaneuf this year.

I have to jump in on this one... I also feel that Phaneuf is under-rated and I think it ridiculous how many people throw him under the bus...

I think you could make an argument that he is a top 15 defender in the league most years.

I don't feel he deserves a raise beyond his 6.5m a year, but I think he could easily still be valued in the 5.5-6.5 range.

He always plays hard minutes, 25+ most nights against the leagues best. He puts up points, ES and on the PP and plays the PK.

He has not had a reliable d partner outside of Gunnar and Beauchemin (both I would argue are still not #2 defenceman) since he has played in Toronto. And in recent history he has had mostly poor teams to play with, especially in net. This was the first year with reliable goaltending.

I feel he is largely under-rated and only slightly over paid. The guy deserves more credit. I wish we could see him with a legit #2 defenceman (maybe garde this year) and with reliable goaltending and see how he does. This is going to be a good team this year and I predict Phaneuf has a great year.

Anyone hear Hayes, Noodles, and O'Neil ragging on Phaneuf earlier this afternoon??  Went out for a veal sandwich at lunch and heard them going down the top 5 best and worst contracts on the Leafs.  Wow....I didn't realize O'Neil disliked Phaneuf so much.

@leafscapguru He's on the same playing field of all the players mentioned save Chara, and maybe Weber.

Some fans just haven't watched or cared enough about the other defencemen to call them overpaid and overrated. They would if they did

@leafscapguru nice post, but it's only focusing on his offensive game.  Sure that's a big part of it, but what makes Dion so good is he's great defensively too.

LeafsGuru

I think it's safe to say he will want 6 mil at least maybe more time will tell he's a steal at 5.5mil

@Xxxxxnew good perspective.  I wonder how many of those other players are considered superior to Dion by the over-rated crowd

@The_Irv Irv you need to change your avatar to Irv Weinstein. That would be awesome.

@The_Irv He plays tough in his end and he shoots rockets from the point.  But in my opinion he is not a gifted puck mover.  Doesn't skate well enough and doesn't pass well enough and doesn't control the puck well enough.  I'm not saying he is below average in those departments, but neither is he close to elite status when it comes to those skills.

@-Keon- barring injury that the way I hope it goes. A little less PP time. More for Franson and Gardiner and away we go.

Yeah I was screaming at my radio too.. He played with holzter and koska for f sakes

That's the thing alec I feel dion gets ripped on to much, damn so what if he pinched and got caught, where was the other defender? The guy has had AHL talent with him pretty much all last year and he was getting ripped on by everyone its not his fault the guy is doing the best he can with his teammates. IMO

I agree he just needs a better partner.

@wiski @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Ha, so you're going to be happy about O'Neill agreeing with you?  Not much of a feather in your cap.  Let me know if someone with a brain ever agrees.

@leafsguru Same as Phil. Give them high quality line mates to play with and see what happens. They have done very well playing with sub par partners in Dion's case and weak C for the most part in Phil's case..

Loric76

@leafscapguru yup.  Gunner's really good (another under-rated player), but is he truly a top 2?

@leafscapguru Phaneuf signed his current deal under a $56 mill cap. He's continued to be highly productive and play big, tough mins. Hard to see him taking less.

I wouldn't blink an eye I would sign him at 6 mil easy

@Loric76 @4evrblue @-Keon- how right you are Loric. I think we're up the brown river without any form of a propeller in that case. Gonna be a long year :(

@Loric76 @4evrblue @-Keon- It's not so bad, just think about all the faceoffs we'll win and how much weight Phil will lose because of dragging around the extra weight?

@4evrblue @-Keon- Phil already carries Bozak enough, now he has to drag Bozak's ass around the ice too?

@-Keon- the only way he will ever go faster is if he hooks on to Phil

@-Keon- You hit the nail on the head here.  He basically had to do it all himself against the big lines....which is why I feel his game will elevate with a little less "hard" icetime.

@Cameron19 @wiski @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan O'Neil might the most corn fed hick i've ever seen wear Blue and white. He's just a bully jackass looking for his 15 seconds of fame in radio cause he didn't get i in hockey.

@Cameron19 @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @wiski 

That's a good question when you put it that way.  I think when Phaneuf landed here everyone viewed him as a savior (especially because we landed him for a bucket of nuts and bolts).  However, I think the shine has diminished somewhat and people are figuring out that he's not really a true #1D and that he's likely overpaid by a million (give or take).  So, in that sense I think Dion was vastly over-rated early on....yet now people's opinions about him are coming down the earth.

I don't think he's a crappy Dman or anything.  He's quite good at what he does.  But he's not a true #1 elite D (in my opinion anyways).  I also think he was made captain too quick (part of the whole over-rated thing, I guess).  However, in saying that, I don't want him traded as he'd be difficult to replace and I hope he re-signs for similar or slightly less money.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @wiski How can anyone be over-rated when never a good word is said about him?  The truth is he's severely under-rated, and most people just don't have a clue what they're talking about...
