  • Nikhil Daljeet

    Perfect backdrop for the MLHS Keeper draft over at ESPN

  • Luke

    Rielly didn’t show me anything to prove that he should be on the NHL roster. I’d rather him go back to junior. He’ll almost certainly be traded to a Memorial Cup contender and play a huge role.

    Come on Kessel!!! Sign… on the dotted line!!!

  • Optimustic

    http://www.rantsports.com/nhl/2013/09/30/predicting-toronto-maple-leafs-final-2013-2014-regular-season-record/  Has this been posted yet?  Predicting the Leafs to finish with 108 points.  17 – 6 – 7 in their divisional games.  Wow, and I thought I was optimistic.

  • Optimustic

    TheCanucksnaphook Optimustic Maybe the media setting up big expectations so they can rag on the team when it only finishes with 98 points?

  • Loric76

    Optimustic pfft, 6 losses my ass.  where’s the optimism?

  • Optimustic

    Yaknowwhat Optimustic I was thinking around that area too.  It’d be nice to clear the 100 point mark, but I’m not betting on it.

  • Loric76

    TheCanucksnaphook Kadri who?

  • Luke

    The Leafs had zero leverage in any deal they could’ve made for Colborne. Either they trade him for whatever they can get, or they put him through waivers.

  • Optimustic

    Loric76 Optimustic One loss vs the Wings 2 vs the Bruins and 4 vs the Panthers?   lol   It seems we often crap the bed against the weaker teams.

  • Luke

    Teams aren’t going to give you much for a guy they could potentially get for free. Burke almost did them a favor.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    I think Colborne could score 10 goals if given a regular 2nd line shift.

  • Loric76

    Optimustic Loric76 that’s young player inconsistency, and gone after the tough playoff loss to Boston

  • djamon

    What the Hell is Langlois actually saying? Jeez.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Declan, why aren’t you (or Alec) in on this??

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I just got back from class. We will be tomorrow.

  • Optimustic

    Loric76 Optimustic Lots of teams do struggle against weaker opponents though,  didn’t the Hawks’ streak end vs a weak team?   I can’t remember which one, but if I remember correctly they played the Hawks tough.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    MikeGartner11 Alec Brownscombe Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Hoping to, but we need a few things to come together (wifi, a broadcast spot). Hoping to have a Leafs alumni on too. As well as Down Goes Brown.

  • Loric76

    Optimustic Loric76 ya.  it was the Avs

  • daniel marois

    I guess u can’t risk not signing Kessel before the season starts on account of possibly losing him as a UFA.  But if Leafs season goes down the shitter early, would wait on signing Phaneuf and trade to the highest bidder on trade deadline day.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    I think Rielly goes down after 9 games…and Reimer starts tomorrow night.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Woops…Reimer confirmed (as he should be).

  • daniel marois

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    Agreed.  Unless he absolutely stands out in each of the nine games he plays

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    -Keon- Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    I sat in the back of the short bus, apparently.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    -Keon- Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    Nice to see you again.

  • DJBrianBurke

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan We finally have the luxury of leaving a player to develop in the juniors, so I HOPE he goes back.

  • Armchair GM

    Anybody watching Rocky on TSN2?  I want to see the Leafs eat lightning and crap thunder…

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    daniel marois Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    I still think Bernier will win out…eventually.  But Reimer did out play him in the preseason.

  • Loric76

    DJBrianBurke Bon Scott was a Leaf fan agreed

  • Alec Brownscombe

    -Keon- Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Why? Because you traded for him he deserves the first game over the guy who finished top 10 last season facing the most shots on a per game basis across the league? And did nothing to play his way out of the crease? How is that a meritocracy? That’s a big slap in the face, and more than that it’s unwarranted.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    -Keon- Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    LMFAO!!

  • theacs1966

    Reimer didn’t show anything to say he shouldn’t be the starter.  Bernier didn’t suck, despite that one game (its preseason) but Kenneth the Page(30 Rock) didn’t show any cracks in his armour.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    -Keon- Alec Brownscombe Bon Scott was a Leaf fan haha damn you

  • DJBrianBurke

    theacs1966 Unless Bernier got a shutout in each preseason game, Reimer was always going to start. It’s just the “right” thing to do.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Can the Leafs force (or at the very least….give a strong nudge) for Moose Jaw to trade Rielly to a better team??

  • Loric76

    DJBrianBurke theacs1966 hey but Bernier did manage to finish a game, so there’s that lol

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    -Keon- Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    That blows!!

  • DJBrianBurke

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Wasn’t it already said that if they are not in the playoffs they are going to seal him I thought I read that over the summer.

  • Xxxxxnew

    Crappy non playoff team means he can get time with Marlies ,

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    DJBrianBurke theacs1966 
    Not sure I agree there.  If Bernier had outplayed Reimer, he would have started in his hometown.

  • JMAC17

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan -Keon- They can influence and I am sure they wouldnt be opposed…but its more likely they would want him on a crappy team, gets him to the AHL faster

  • Pent_House

    Xxxxxnew Moose Jaw should be better

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    JMAC17 Bon Scott was a Leaf fan -Keon- 
    Meh!!  I’d prefer him to be playing with better players.

  • DJBrianBurke

    -Keon- DJBrianBurke Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Ha! Yes… I corrected that typos, obviously not fast enough.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    What is Langlois not understanding where Colborne is concerned??

  • DJBrianBurke

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan DJBrianBurke theacs1966 True, that was always a possibility, but it didn’t happen. He would have had to play lights out or else there would have been a nice MSM storm about “starting goalies”. Not a good idea game 1 of the season. That topic is just waiting to pop.

    NHL projects a $1B boost in revenue
    Sportsbusinessdaily.com
    While enjoying his team’s run to the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago Blackhawks owner and chairman Rocky Wirtz spoke optimistically of the league’s overall business last week — to the tune of an additional $1 billion coming to the NHL.
    “We’re going to add another billion dollars in gross revenue in the very near future,” Wirtz said while with his team in Boston. “The CBA is long-term [10 years, with opt-outs for the league and players after eight], and now the focus is on growth. I’m extremely happy about the future of the NHL.”
    Wirtz isn’t alone in having that billion-dollar vision in this first year under the new collective-bargaining agreement. According to sources at the team and league levels, NHL executives informed the league’s audit and finance committee at a meeting on June 10 that the league projects bringing in an additional $1 billion of cumulative revenue over the next three seasons.
    In 2011-12, the NHL’s last full season prior to this year’s lockout-shortened campaign, revenue totaled $3.2 billion. This year, with teams having played 48 regular-season games each, revenue is expected to be $2.4 billion. That’s 72 percent of the revenue with 58 percent of the games played.
    The league has reason to be confident in the potential for that billion-dollar jolt. The NHL is producing six outdoor games next season: the Winter Classic, the Heritage Classic in Canada, and four games branded as the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. League officials are poised for sponsorship additions. And by the end of this summer, negotiations are expected to begin for Canadian media rights deals. The Canadian Broadcasting Corp.’s agreement for the iconic “Hockey Night in Canada” expires at the end of next season. With TSN and Sportsnet looking to bid, the price is expected to rise significantly from the current six-year pact that pays $100 million annually.

    Yaknowwhat Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I think he was fully aware of that. Seemed like he couldn’t believe the prospect we ranked among our top youngsters was so worthless so soon.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Yaknowwhat Alec Brownscombe Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    Sure, but he’s almost accusing the Leafs of mishandling his development.
