Some of the interviews in case you missed them during the live stream:

Bernier:

Fraser:

McLaren:

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Last season we had Franson as a spare part going into camp. i think we can live without him. Especially if one of the kids can jump in. I say Franson is trade bait. Lets do it!

  • Doorman

    ShotgunCharlie NOPE!!!

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Doorman ShotgunCharlie YEP!!!

  • Burtonboy

    ShotgunCharlie Doorman Over ruled…. both of you lol

  • Doorman

    ShotgunCharlie Doorman If he was trade bait he would have been gone already!!!

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Doorman ShotgunCharlie I am sayinng he SHOULD be trade bait. Not saying he is.

  • Burtonboy

    Kadri on new deal: “I think it’s fair for both sides. We understand what’s at stake here.”

  • Doorman

    ShotgunCharlie Doorman OH Jeessus!  Try the h/b with that one!!!  lol

  • Burtonboy

    Nazem Kadri says it was important not to miss any part of training camp. “This is a weapon you use to get ready for the season.”

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Doorman ShotgunCharlie Nah. You can go do that.

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Burtonboy Glad to see Kadri understands the big picture.

  • ShotgunCharlie

    Murph2417 ShotgunCharlie based on half a season. I think he is expendable if Rielly makes the team

  • Captain Morgan

    I think people are forgetting how tough it was to play against franson in the playoffs….he really came into his own there.  He is not expendable and will only get better with age.

  • phaneufoundlander

    He was a beast, a real leader, a stud on the point….

    Murph2417 ShotgunCharlie Big decision looming with Rielly, he’s obviously too good to send back to junior but after a 9 game look it is really the best option.

  • phaneufoundlander

    Im with BB, you guys are nuts…

  • Burtonboy

    Kessel doesn’t want to talk contract with Leafs during season. “Yeah I’m sticking to that.”

  • wendelsway1

    Captain Morgan I do want Franson signed but I don’t think he is the be all end all that some are making him out to be.   Just my opinion

  • Doorman

    wendelsway1 Captain Morgan Who asked you???  LOL

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Kadri and Lays/Dorito’s …. an endorsement in the waiting. #chiponshoulder

  • wendelsway1

    Doorman wendelsway1 Captain Morgan Pfffft!  :)

  • Burtonboy

    Phil Kessel says he’s looking for a long-term extension on his next deal. “I want to be somewhere for a long period of time.”

  • Captain Morgan

    wendelsway1 Captain Morgan A lot of people are talking about his offence, but his size and the way that he can use it defensively have improved with Carlyle coaching…he will be a top four for many years to come and they are not that easy to find, especially with the offensive upside that he has…he is finally filling out his potential and it would not be the teams best interest to lose him now.

  • OTL

    Burtonboy  
    maybe it’s not to talk to the media about the contract negotiations….smart move

  • OTL

    sorry, misread your post……didn’t read the “with Leafs” part before I commented the first time.

  • phaneufoundlander

    me too…inside of Nikie Benz

  • Captain Morgan

    Burtonboy Well, he has his cuddly buddy signed on for the next five years, so that should help us!! LOL  I think most athletes want that…I don’t think that Phil likes change too much in his everyday life.

  • Irishfanman

    CanuckUKinToronto TheCanucksnaphook Burtonboy Naw…if he said that they would lowball him…he has to play poker

  • mcloki

    ShotgunCharlie Murph2417 DEar Lord . No pressure on Rielly then. Lets not rush our guys into the lineup already.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Burtonboy Phil is a pretty savvy guy.  Throws in the “somewhere” just to make the front office shiver a little.  I knew looking at his Team USA picture that there was brilliance simmering beneath those beguiling eyes.

    Kadri: “My teammates have been bugging me … I’m sure they’ll take me out for a nice dinner … on me”

    Burtonboy
    Feb. 13th – Said Wade Arnott:
    “Phil (Kessel) is still a really young man,” Arnott told the SportsNet Fan590. “He really enjoys living in Toronto and playing for the .”
    “This young man lives and breathes hockey. He was very excited to come here four years ago. I think if you asked Phil today, he’d love to finish his career here in Toronto. But it’s still young in his career right now.”
    “Phil would like nothing more than to help the Maple Leafs make the playoffs. He wants to experience playoff hockey here in Toronto,” said Arnott. “That’s the first step to winning a potential Stanley Cup here in Toronto.
    “He was very disappointed last year. They had a very good start to the season. They were in a playoff position at the turn of the calendar year and unfortunately the last third of the season didn’t go well.”

  • TMLConnor

    Burtonboy I think hes looking to sign anywhere for a long period. So hes putting that out there so if theres any options for high $, then they know what he wants, Big money, and Term.

    Man..Frazer’s huge, look at the hands. Would not want to tangle with him at all.

  • MaxwellHowe

    McLaren somehow looks crazy when he talks about sailing

  • Irishfanman

    MaxwellHowe he probably always looks crazy…even when sleeping

  • Burtonboy

    DeclanK Burtonboy I have it on good authority he absolutely doesn’t want to go anywhere lol

  • Greg Fenton

    CanuckUKinToronto Burtonboy I would bet he is open to staying here, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he wants to test free agency. He is American, there might be some desire to play in the States again. If the Leafs don’t offer him as much money or term as he wants/thinks he can get……
    Remember, the Leafs got Kessel because the team that drafted him (I don’t remember a lot of “hes unhappy” talk or anything) couldn’t pay him what he wanted so he forced a trade. I don’t think we should assume he will be loyal or take less to stay here or anything like that given his past and how he landed here.

  • wendelsway1

    MaxwellHowe I love his crazy look……especially when beating the shit out of the opposition.

  • phaneufoundlander

    yip, with my God given extension….all 3 inches…some chicks like it that wide

  • Dink

  • Doorman

    phaneufoundlander You have been on the Rock too Long!!!lol

  • wendelsway1

    DeclanK Big Daddy on Bolland’s agitating ways……”he almost plays dirty, I like that”……so do I :)

  • Dink

    I wanna see Frasers forehead

  • mcloki

    wendelsway1 MaxwellHowe it’s the smile that’s unnerving.

  • wendelsway1

    mcloki wendelsway1 MaxwellHowe Canadian Psycho…..love it!

  • mcloki

    HAs anyone heard if the LEafsTV game on Sunday will be in HD and made available for all Rogers viewers?

  • DJBrianBurke

    mcloki He should take MLHS out to dinner after all the speculations on his contract negotiations we had to read.

  • Burtonboy

    New forward David Bolland. “I think this team is a contender. I don’t think it’s far off from where chicago was last year.”
