    I was admiring the Maple Leafs Hot Stove Show you guys do. Our blog does something similar. We have radio shows every now and again. Here’s the link if yinz guys ever want to listen. Most of them are from when we raised over $4000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

    Malkincookies Very cool, guys. Always love raising some money for charities.

  • Malkincookies

    DeclanK Malkincookies Yes, it’s very cool to see what a bunch of internet bloggers can do

  • Aaron Chan

    Malkincookies I was like “yinz”? But then I saw Malkin 😛 thanks for checking us out

  • Malkincookies

    Aaron Chan Malkincookies Yeah, it’s a force of habit XD Yep, you guys are very friendly and carry great discussions about hockey

  • MLHS_Aaron

    delangedotcom thanks bud, love late night hockey talk

  • delangedotcom

    MLHS_Aaron About 2/3’s of the way through. Well planned and executed. *hat tip* to you four.

  • MLHS_Aaron

    delangedotcom Appreciate it, we’ve got more ideas in the pipeline so it’ll be fun to see where this takes us.

  • GreekGod

    This was great. Thanks so much for doing this guys!

  • Jordan29

    So apparently the Clarkson suspension fucked the potential of a Franson signing? Jesus that sucks

  • Jordan29

    JVR-Bozak-Kessel(maybe)
    Lupul-Kadri-Ashton/Mcclement
    Raymond-Bolland-Kulemin
    Devane-Colborne-Ashton/mcclement
    orr, Mclaren (both likely still hurt)

    Is this our possible opening night roster?

  • Savo43

    Jordan29 Good morning…but man, McClement and Ashton should not be on that 2nd line Jordan, come on man. Clearly Raymond has earned that spot with Clarkson out of the lineup -.-

  • Savo43

    Jordan29 I pray to god we can find a deal for Liles with CGY. I would include Colborne for sure maybe even a pick if it meant we resign Franson. Perhaps im crazy though.

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 Jordan29 Trade Joe Colborne and then have one of out other 4 centers go down to injury and just who do we replace him with ? Gregg McKegg ?

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 Jordan29 Gardiner! 😉

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 Burtonboy Jordan29 .LOL your dreaming

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 Jordan29 well….I put a winky face…lollll 😛

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 Burtonboy Jordan29 Your still dreaming :)

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 Jordan29 Can you imagine though? What if he played center…won 80% of his draws, and was creating opportunity after opportunity? LOL. What would you do? Would you convert him? Just live in dream land for a second bro.

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 Burtonboy Jordan29 Actually its way too late for that. Can you imagine trying to teach a defense men who has never played center and only played wing for a short time in college to an NHL center at this point . I doubt it could be done. Even Wendell who switched never played center

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 Jordan29 ofcourse it is, but ahh it was fun to think of hahaha.

  • Savo43

    If Kessel is out for the opener:

    JVR-Kadri-Lupul
    Raymond-Bozak-Kulemin
    Leivo-Bolland-Ashton
    Colborne-McClement-Devane

    i tell ya…this still beats those Ponikarovsky-Stajan-Antropov lineups…lmaooo.

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 Burtonboy Jordan29 I get your point but just look at what Jake does playing where he is . Actually imo he has more impact playing as a PMD then he ever could as a center

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 Jordan29 Yeah for sure, he’s a force on D, we need him there.

  • Burtonboy

    Savo43 If Kessel is out for the season opener then I’m lining up Orr and McLaren against Vanik and Hodgson next game . This asshole league has just declared open season on NHL stars

  • Savo43

    Burtonboy Savo43 shannahan is honestly an asshole towards the Leafs…i could see it happening. Hopefully not though.

  • Burtonboy

    I would be surprised if he nailed him for regular season games .

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Burtonboy They’ll just have a talk… Warning and a fine for Kessel.

  • Burtonboy

    Alec Brownscombe Burtonboy Hope your right . Honestly what are the implication of all of this . If Scott get nothing which it now looks like you’ve basically declared open season on the stars around the League. Especially if Kessel gets a suspension.

  • maple1967leafs

    Now that Detroits in our division,I trust Shanny even less,

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Man if they think Kessel is the villain here for trying to defend himself against a goon they a re fucking crazy. Historically stars have always had to use the stick to defend themselves from these assholes. If Scott tried that with Richard or Esposito he would be picking splinters out of his teeth …if he had any left

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs  i think he gets the next 3 pre-season games

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs maybe 2

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Burtonboy Any suspension is harsh IMO

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs It would be for the extra stuff when Scott was down, BB. No doubt protecting himself was justified in the moment.

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs I know but,He did swing his stick with the intent to injure,Self preservation aside :)

  • maple1967leafs

    Alec Brownscombe Burtonboy maple1967leafs  The worse part might be having that “history” for future incidents

  • Burtonboy

    Alec Brownscombe Burtonboy maple1967leafs . And Scott would only have thrown a love tap at Kessel ? Yeah like fuck . This league is totally cracked if they allow Rolston and Scott to go unpunished with what was an obvious attempt t o take out a superstar

  • Dink

    Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe maple1967leafs  Kessel seems to be getting worse about swinging his stick, it needs to be nipped in the bud…
    I can see him getting 5 games as a deterent

  • maple1967leafs

    @Dink Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe maple1967leafs nah he only hit his legs not his head,He would get 5 for the head

  • Burtonboy

    @Dink Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe maple1967leafs 
    The league refuses to protect the better players and allow them to get hacked and attacked by goons liike Scott  then they are going to protect themselves as best they can. Blaming Kessel for protecting himself  here is absurd .

  • Dink

    Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe maple1967leafs
    He can’t keep doing it …he really will get hurtHe needs a wake-up call
    and I am a Kessel fan

  • Burtonboy

    @Dink Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe maple1967leafs Man you need to watch what Crosby and many other stars do on the ice when shit like this happens. Why are you singling out Kessel for doing what many other superstars do to protect themselves

  • Dink

    Because he needs to be on the ice, not flailing at opponents.

  • Burtonboy

    @Dink So just allow every douche bag in the league to hack slash and jump him and not do anything about it ? If he doesn’t retaliate he’s going to get mauled all over the ice and likely get hurt that way

  • Burtonboy

    Time For Shanahan To Use His Imagination

  • Dink

    Burtonboy It is gonna be a long year for him because the players now know how to get under his skin
    Orr and McLaren is my answer

  • Burtonboy

    @Dink Burtonboy I think he’s tired of being hacked and mauled and I can’t say I blame him.

  • Wilbur

    Burtonboy I’d lay the lumber right across the teeth, no problem. I’d accept the suspension and when the media asked about it I’d say next time I’m going to lay the lumber right across the teeth and then shove it through his ears and gladly accept the suspension.
