Listen out for MLHS’ Anthony Petrielli asking the panel a question (at the 56:30 mark) about intangibles, which Reid Mitchell and Alex Rucker (Raptors’ Seniors Analytics Consultant) respond to.
Anthony will have some follow-up thoughts on today’s Conference in tomorrow’s Notebook. For full video of the other panel talks at today’s Sports Industry Conference, click here.
Some suggestions for Nonis summer game plan.
I started wondering if Moulson - a good North York boy - would be interested in the going back to play in front of family and friends?
Combined him with Stastny and Clarkson on the third line might do the trick.
Then trade for Myers or Ehrhoff by sending Franson and 1st round pick 2014 to Sabres. Trade Reimer and 2nd round pick to Vancouver for Lack and 1st round pick 2015
What a stroke of luck....youngest son came home last night to eat and shower.....just in time to shovel...lol.....haven't seen him since...lol :)
@Dangle_My_Berries Loved what he said about tanking. You ask them to loose, you can never ask them to win for you after. Not in the hockey player's mentality.
@Dangle_My_Berries shit. missed it. Love his interviews.
@Leafs rule Coffee testing?
What about beer testing?
@Great Dane I hope the cap goes up by 30 mil so we can fit all those contracts in. lol. other than money problems I like the cut of your jib man.
@Great Dane I wish people would try out their ideas on capgeek.com first. Using a $70M cap and this years salaries: (the 2014-2015 fantasy calculator doesn't work)
F: JVR, Bozak, Kessel, Lupul, Kadri, Clarkson, Moulson, Stastny, Orr, ?, ? , ?
D: Phaneuf, Gleason, Gunnarsson, Rielly, Myers, ?, ?
G: Bernier, Lack
The total cap hit is $62,452,500 with $850,000 bonuses leaving $7,547,500 cap space left. That's sixteen players. Five positions to fill. That's 21 players above including the question marks. The roster is usually, what, 23? Using 2013-2014 salaries, Moulson is probably a little low on salary and Stastny could be a little high but let's say they balance each other out. $7.5M / 7 players = just a shade under $1.1M per player remaining. Possible? Yes. Probable? No. Cap shrinking even more? Quite likely (despite what Bettman has recently said.)
@Great Dane Vancouver is rebuilding / retooling. There is no way they will be giving up their 1st.
@Great Dane Let's not take into account the fact you'd have a 15M$ 3rd line or the fact that you'll have to re-sign Bernier and Kadri in a years time (both will get 5+)....
@wendelsway1 Thats fine, probably the last big snow of the year. He'll have forgotten how you took advantage of him by next winter.
@Dangle_My_Berries Bloody hell!!! Why can't I select where to start the podcast?! I don't want to hear the whole damn thing!
@CanuckUKinToronto Yeah, plus Myers and Ehrhoff...there's no way we fit that under the Cap.
Just messed up how Rogers treated the guy.
side note ... I am not sold on the ownership of this team yet. They make some head scratching decisions. Not just with the Leafs but the Jays as well.
Wish I could be a fly on the wall for those big wig conversations.
