Sean McIndoe joins Michael and Michael to discuss the Randy Carlyle extension and state of the Maple Leafs headed into the offseason.
Good morning Folks, whats new ? who we trading lol, I took a night off BBQ'd and watched Sherlock. Woke up to the Local Radio station saying we are trading Dion, its trickled down to small town Radio, Dam you TSN !
Trading Phaneuf would be a mistake (tho for all we know he requested it), and if it happens the Leafs may as well go full rebuild and swap Kessel as well. It would take a minumum of 3 years IMO for the defence corps to be competitive.
I have been saying this for ever, he is not a leader or a top #1.
@Burtonboy My guess is that many of those teams that want to "slot him properly" don't see him as a $7million player either.
Then why do we have to eat salary?
@Belfour20/JB-45 Morning Belf, just imagine Franson getting a Promotion to the Toughest minutes in Hockey, or Gardiner, or Both. Grass aint always greener :))
Thats what scares me
@~Keon It shows Leafs management are scared and dont know what direction to go.
Have not talked to anyone about Phaneuf since the deadline . Would he trade him? Sure for the right offer just like any other player on the team
@wendelsway1 Morning WW. My concern with tanking shifts to goal tending.. we finally have it and we're going to suck?
@MaxwellHowe where is the information about the request coming from?
@MaxwellHowe Wait so he requested the trade?
@TheCanucksnaphook He's getting Murphyed
If Nonis really does have to retain salary than his time as GM should really be over. How can one man fuck this team up so bad in such a short time
@~Keon Of course . Get the right deal and anyone can be traded . Question is what does Nonis consider the right deal . I suspect its a lot different then what this board thinks
@~Keon Normal conversation when GM talk. Doesn't mean there will be a trade made .
@Loric76 BUT BUT BUT... Kypper said it so it HAS to be true right?!?!
Off the top of my head, I see Edmonton, San Jose and Anaheim and Colorado. as partners in such a trade. Obviously from Col you seek O'Reilly or even the rights to Stasney. From San Jose, realistically, Pavelski (they would never trade Couture IMO). From Edmonton ,their #3 draft pick.
From the Ducks, maybe that kid Devante pelley Smith.
I still think he was beaten down for the same reason Bernier was injured. Too much pressure in the Dzone.
@Burtonboy @Wilbur Oh, I don't really have a problem with his salary but if there are teams (per Kypper's suggestion) that see value in him if "slotted properly" then I wonder if they are willing to pay a Dman 7 million to be a number 2 or 3 dman? I think there will be more than enough teams willing to take on his salary.
@~Keon Nonis and RC scare me Keon , RC seriously has no clue, and it apears Nonis is the same
@TheCanucksnaphook And it is the off season, what else do we really have to discuss? Kessel and Bozak's golf scores?
@TheCanucksnaphook Trade Kessel too if Dion is on his way out.
@MaxwellHowe Good lord its too early for pot stirring.
@Burtonboy @CanuckUKinToronto@TheCanucksnaphookI don't think they would take him off without at the same time taking steps to fill it the hole. It's undeniable that Phaneuf plays a crucial role for us, but the notion that there are no d-men in the league who would be an unpgrade on Phaneuf flies in the face of reality. The question is, could we pry one of those d-men loose at a price we can afford?
