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 if a Seguin or a ROR or a Couture are available to come back, then absolutely you trade Dion. But that doesn't happen everyday.
@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
@Belfour20/JB-45 if mgmt believe they are improving the team then yes..
@~Keon It shows Leafs management are scared and dont know what direction to go.
@~Keon that really should be the case everywhere
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
@TheCanucksnaphook Maybe we had too much core, not enough fringe players. Move those guys out and bring back Crabb, Brent, Finger, Frogren,...
@wendelsway1 morning. I'm going to be laughing at the folks around here when camp starts and we still have Dion. So much drama and speculation over nothing.
@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?
@MaxwellHowe It depends on what comes back. If we end up getting a better 1C then maybe not
@~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.
@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
@~Keon Well, at least the moron part is true...oxyclarkson
@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.
@MaxwellHowe and then all depends on if we can can a good 1D/2D on an upgrade of Franson/Gunnar with packages. Rielly may become one in time as well
