In lieu of a Notebook on the Leafs games that didn’t take place last week, Anthony is going to be doing a Question and Answer session.
He’s such a big deal he needed someone else to post this notice for him. Take your opportunity to ask AP a question in the comments below.
Ten days until the trade deadline, will there be more action before the deadline or does the whole thing just fizzle. Sure sounds like some big name potential UFA's will be on the move.
Good Morning Fellas.....I too am still beaming.....what a spectacle on ice, from both our men and women. Women gave us a miracle on ice performance and our men just dominated......So proud to be Canadian!
Having said that, so looking forward to having our Leafs back and injury free......we'll finally be able to ice our full line up, going down the stretch, and I can't wait!.......GO LEAFS GO!!! :)
Happy Golden Mornign Gents. Still happy and proud of Team Canada and all the Olympic Athletes. We came, we saw, We kicked ass.
Just watched the high-light from the Marlies - Barons game.
Good to see that Brennan, Percy and Granberg have taken some big steps forward this season.
They will soon be ready for the Leafs, so I might be time for Nonis to see what the return on a player like Franson would be. Franson or another d-man.
Nonis simply has to convert this great surplus of d-men into top quality players
@ingy56 You know it will fizzle. No one has cap space and with the cap going up in the summer most of these guys will wait to see how much money is on the table.
@wendelsway1 Morning WW, get your Playoff Gear now !
@wendelsway1 The Olympic team is sure to spoil us. especially the play of the defence. Our 6 men will not look the same to us now. We'll be all like "Doughty would've made that play", etc, etc
@wendelsway1 Now we just have to determine what our full line up is . lol
@Yaknowwhat LOL My son had hockey(tyke) at 8:45 he got half ready at home and we shot to the arena as soon as the 2nd period was over. The coaches are volunteer and it was a great sight as the coaches had the kids do a few extra warmup laps around the rink while they hung out around the glass to the canteen area with the only visible tv screen around. then in the games started. in the last minute one of coaches wives let him know it was the last minute and the game was stopped and all the kids skated over to the glass to watch the final minute. Then the kids all started counting down the last 10 seconds of the game. they all celebrated the win with their sticks raised and giving high fives and then turned and it was back to work and the game they were playing.
THAT IS CANADIAN
@mcloki Morning MC
@CanuckUKinToronto Doubt the Lefs have Kulimen, Raymond and Komorov next year. Raymond likey the odd man out. Ashton or D'Migo could take Raymond's place tho.
@Yaknowwhat Did we send Phook Flowers ? he must be quite upset
@Yaknowwhat The whole "steroids in sports" has gone overboard. The pseudoephedrine is found in almost all cold and allergy medications (my wife takes it). I have studied steroids for 24 years and have yet to see a study by anyone in the medical community that can prove that having a clear nose boosts your performance. The IOC should be ashamed. Coffee has more performance enhancing effects than pseudoephedrine LOL
@Great Dane I think I like Granberg most of all. Franson presents a tough decsion. Soemtimes make egregious mistakes defensively, but a rare commodity offensively. Hitting more this year. I'd see what he might be willing to accept on the next contract, go from there. But i would expect Gra nberg to be ready next year, if that factors into it.
@darthNihilus @Yaknowwhat Nevermind the fact that if you're taking it to combat an actual ailment, whatever stimulant the drug is providing is still leaving you below your normal output. I've never seen anyone with a cold or allergy that felt better on medication than they did healthy or free of allergens.
@Yaknowwhat " the allergy medicine has pseudoephedrine which can boost ability for things more like cross country skiing and rowing etc" - bullshit, confused with ephedrine which when taken with caffeine and aspirin can make a decent stimulant.
@MaxwellHowe Franson wants a big contract and 4 million for Franson is IMO too much
@CanuckUKinToronto Running 7 d-men would make space for Brennan on the PP. Just an idea
@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @phaneufoundlander Got to agree with you here Cam . Some of the rookies are coming along real nice but by no stretch are they ready to replace the likes of Kulemin or Raymond right now. I can see moving guys like that if we were out of the playoffs but frankly I think its important for this team to make the playoffs again this yr. Not sure our chances of that would be very good if we move Kulie and Raymond at this point
@phaneufoundlander Yeah, personally I don't see why the Leafs would contemplate paying Kulimen some $3 million plus when D'Amigo or Ashton could jump without much, if any, real drop off in terms of quality
