@Proteautype: Devils lose for 13th time in a shootout, & have yet to win one this year. They're the Bad Guys Firing Guns In Every Action Movie of the NHL.

Hopefully the Leafs let all of their UFA's go and bring in some new blood.

@SportsnetSpec: I saw 3 Oilers players at Smyth's retirement. Find the answer to why there wasn't 23, and u might be on to what's happened to this org.

ugh, hate pretty much everything about Lupul for Brown. Eight more years at nearly 6mil. That's disgusting.

This is without Franson, Reimer, Gunnarsson, and Holland. Im sure Nonis can use those assets and more to get another top 6 forward and 1-2 defence

Night folks! May we lose our way down to 7th overall #TankNation #YetAnotherYear

Imagine how happy Lupul would be if that trade went down lol

What I would die to see:

Brown Stastny Kessel

JVR Kadri ____

Ashton Bozak Clarkson

Komorov Boyle/ Malholtra Bodie/ Damigo

@Xxxxxnew  Man, Jersey really shot themself in the foot with that Kovie shit though. They could've kept Parise and signed Suter instead of Minnesota and they'd be a lottttt better off. 

Savo43

@Xxxxxnew  I think they have something like 2 shootout goals all year or something lolol. I could be wrong but i think thats what i heard on sportsnet earlier. Maybe they said 2 guys have scored shootout goals all year, but i dno. Crazy seeing as they were recently pretty sick in the shootout with Kovalchuk and Parise in their lineup.

To WPG:

Gardiner, Lupul, Reimer

-

To Tor: 

Kane

-

To LA:

Clarkson

Holland

Franson

9th overall

-

To Tor:

Brown

Lewis

22nd overall

conditional pick (2nd if LA wins division or if Leafs miss playoffs, 3rd if LA misses playoffs, or if Leafs make playoffs..3rd if both teams miss playoffs). 

-

Sign: Stastny, Elliott

-

JVR-Stastny-Kessel

Kane-Kadri-Brown

Leivo-Bozak-Kozun

D'amigo-Lewis-Ashton

-

Rielly-Phaneuf

Gunnarsson-Macwilliam

Percy-Holzer

Finn-Granberg

Brennan-Nilsson

-

Bernier

Elliott

-

It would be a green defense with much less offensive power, but WAYY better defense. Gunnarsson and Percy would do decently on PP2 as well, i wouldn't be too worried about it. Losing Gardiner would be bloody tough, but Kane is a beast so..i think we still come out solidly in that trade. Lewis does amazing things for our PK, as does Brown, the promotion of MacWilliam, D'amigo, and Holzer..maybe Kozun as well.

Im so giddy for this lineup Im gonna make it in NHL 14 and see what happens one of these days

@lukethenuke  

love how the four best forwards are American, that will piss off Cherry

Cameron19

@lukethenuke  I like it.  I'd move Brown all around the roster and hope he rubs off on JVR, Kessel, etc...

Savo43

@Cloud09 @loomx  7th isn't possible, as the Jets have the same ROW and 1 less win than us. 8th would be nice though! I'm gussing we'll be picking 10th or 11th (depending on the lottery result) though. 

Luke_R
Luke_R

@Cameron19 @lukethenuke  Thats why I put Brown on line one to push Phil... if that doesnt work, put him with JVR to get the beast out of him...

Hope Leivo can step into that spot or im not sure whos gonna take it.... hopefully not Raymond.... not gonna lie Macarthur woulda looked sweet there

@Savo43  7th is possible if we lose and Vancouver beats Edmonton and Calgary they will end up having 85 points and we will finish with 84 as long as we lose

@Savo43 @Cloud09 @loomx  


Wins are not a tiebreaker.  Jets beat us in our games against each other and hold the tiebreaker.  As long as we lose and Van gets 3/4 from Cal and Edm, we can get 7th pick.

@LeafsForLife @Savo43 @Cloud09 @loomx  About as buffa-low as you can go. This shit actually makes sense now that i think of it lol. I don't get why they traded Halak for Neuvirth though..still confused about that. It was a straight deal right? 

LeafsForLife

@Savo43 @LeafsForLife@Cloud09@loomxIm surprized they actually found an owner that could keep up with that whole farce for a year. I think the bs that they pulled off on LaFontaine was absolutely as low as you can go.

@loomx @Cloud09 @ProfessorRance  Brown is 100x better than Clarkson though, even when he's not scoring he's extremely useful. PK, toughness, grit, and leadership. 

Cloud09
Cloud09

@loomx @ProfessorRance  You're moving quite a bit out as well. It's only a $500K difference. Only drawback would be Brown's would last 4 years longer.

@Jordan29 @Cloud09  I guess so. Anything on Vancouver is fair game IMO.  Try and swap Gunnar for Bieksa?

Cloud09

@Jordan29 @Cloud09  Like who? I'm trying to find players that could possibly be available but there sure doesn't seem to be many. 

Luke_R
Luke_R

@Bruffins @lukethenuke  Yup, key is he and Stastny... that would change the dynamic of the roster, especially with a new coach

.

And for all who say its unrealistic... Leiweke wants change, wants it fast, and has the connections for Brown.... Stastny would be the hard part, and thats a huge return for the Jets

DJGLENN22

@Cameron19..........that is a big package for Kane who has been injury prone this past season and that 1st could end up being a higher pick then 7th overall if the lttery gods help us.............Kane is not worth all of that is the pick is lets say 5th or better overall......They might just wanna get rid of him just for the 3 guys you said
