487

How crazy? Dion Phaneuf, Nazem Kadri and the eighth pick to the Panthers for Ed Jovanovski and the first overall pick, crazy.

In the real news world, nothing to report.

    Every year we expect big news only to be disappointed so I’m not expecting anything except we will pick in the eighth spot

  • Burtonboy

    Lonsmos2 Smart man .

  • Great Dane

    Regarding the rumors about the Florida deal:  That is so obvious that someone in or close to the Panthers organization was sending a message.
    I still firmly believe that we can not return with the same setup next season.

    Gm BB Sad to here whats happening in Moncton,I hope there will be a quick end to the situation

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Scary situation . This province is so small he could be anywhere

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs Spent a couple of years in Gagetown,And spent some time in Moncton

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Burtonboy I live in Burton of course so you would be familiar with that area . How long ago where you here ?

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs Mid 70’s  I a was a young pup,Straight out of bootcamp

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Burtonboy That’s one huge mofo of a base . All my neighbors are military and my wife worked on base for a while. I worry a little about the guys in uniform. So many issues because of post combat syndrome. Suicides and domestic violence are big problems. Not many guys will talk about their experiences but one of my friends has told me a little bit . Rough stuff to say the least

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs Peacekeeping missions sometimes are the hardest on your nerves because of the rules of engagement’.you spend most of your time looking over your shoulder,I think its the constant stress that gets you.As a soldier you are trained to fight,not so much to wait

  • Zep2

    If the Kings win this series, Drew Doughtywill have 2 Olympic Gold and 2 SC  in 4 years, along with Toews and Keith

    Will the question then be
    1=-Is he the best defence  in the world
    2- the best player in the world

  • Zep2

    Re the Florida trade, is see it as Dion for their 1st and 2nd. We may have to throw in a prospect or a 3 rd

  • MaxwellHowe

    One way or another, the Leafs should make a priority of shedding some salary and making themselves flexible to make good trades.  Let Bolland and Raymond and Reimer go and buy out Gleason.  Kulimen should not be signed for a cent above $3 million.  Management needs to prepare the team to take adavntage of opportunity.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Thanks for the Mashup.

    While crazy rumors will abound, it is what fuels us in our sickness.
    Bring them on !!

  • JMAC17

    Heading out camping for 4 days fellas….keep it sane while I’m gone!

    Hope I come home to some news!

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    ~Keon I prefer dead.

  • Joe_17

    Looking at Buttons draft list here i see he has Virtanen down in the 40’s! even before his surgery. Am i missing something with this kid?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Joe_17 Two new lists came out within last few days .  ISS and another big one (forget name).  Compare everything you can.

  • MaxwellHowe

    The LA Kings seem to be a team that just does what is required to win, and nothing else.  Its like they’re reluctant to be champions, but then again can’t be bothered to lose.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    For reasons like this….I want to draft Ritchie as an allaround gamer.

    Dreger “you look at wingers. All due respect to the role that Orr/McLaren are capable of playing, not the way the game is played anymore”

  • Rhaegar_

    Zep2 Frustrating question, because he is a much different player in the regular season than the playoffs or at special tournaments.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Virtanen reminds me of a JVR type winger.   Ritchie like a Jamie Benn.

    I guess you have to pick which you prefer at 8.

  • Rhaegar_

    TheCanucksnaphook How does Ritchie remind you of Benn?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Seriously when you see Joe Thornton doing this…..how do you not expect MORE from him?  (not fights but playing with an edge)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuZy1PQIgrA

  • Rhaegar_

    TheCanucksnaphook He does play with an edge, all the time. He injures like 3 guys per year playing on the edge.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Berger now backtracking a bit:

  • Rhaegar_

    MaxwellHowe Basically everyone who has any clue at all told him he’s a moron and that his trade proposal made no sense.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Rhaegar_ MaxwellHowe well, I will give him credit for reporting on a conversation that, in many ways, debunks his own reporting.  In an odd way it does imply that he is only reporting what he has heard. 
    Nonetheless, when he heard that proposal he should have concluded someone was jerking him around.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Rhaegar_ TheCanucksnaphook maybe the edge isnt the correct term,  he just gets so much shit by the MSM for not winning big games.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Ricky_Vaives_slapshot I hope someone ends him soon – but I am always a little uneasy about how quickly we can become a police / militarized state.  Like the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    MaxwellHowe Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Exactly my concern.

  • Rhaegar_

    MaxwellHowe Rhaegar_ More than that, it’s just frustrating how every media personality hears stuff like this and rather than question it, assumes that the Leaf assets must be total garbage in order to explain the logic behind what they’ve heard.  If we went out and suggested similar trades for other teams, the same personalities would pause, take a second to think, and realize how dumb those deals are – then mock anyone who believed they would happen.

  • MaxwellHowe

    TheCanucksnaphook MaxwellHowe Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Onre step away from going house to house to house, Bourque needs to be taken down, but this kind of response can become routine so easily

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Rhaegar_ TheCanucksnaphook Moves well for a bigger guy (although 30 pounds heavier).  Good shot and sees the ice well.  Has nice scoring touch, but the one-timer that Ritchie has is very underrated.

    Versatile players and from what I hear both lead by example.  (Ritchie does take some nights off…but he is a kid)

  • Komas Taberle

    MaxwellHowe
    His mother in law told him to write a rebuttal.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Ricky_Vaives_slapshot no different than any small Ontario city.  Heavily forested around

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Ricky_Vaives_slapshot MaxwellHowe TheCanucksnaphook When you have had the opportunity to plan for months you can find soft spots to hide.   The RCMP is playing catchup to a guy who knows every nook to Moncton.

  • maple1967leafs

    TheCanucksnaphook Ricky_Vaives_slapshot MaxwellHowe Yeah this isn’t a spur of the moment attack,He was well prepared

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    maple1967leafs TheCanucksnaphook Ricky_Vaives_slapshot MaxwellHowe Just by looking at his facebook, he is the type who plans and is methodical in his actions.

    He didnt wake up yesterday and just decide to do it.

  • MaxwellHowe

    maple1967leafs curious to know how he got assault weapons.  A little cross border shopping likely

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Haha. I just realized Game 1 was last night and I have NO IDEA who won.

  • Joe_17

    TheCanucksnaphook Joe_17 Just seems like such a huge gap. Usually the top 30 are generally close – but that one is just wayyy out there

  • maple1967leafs

    TheCanucksnaphook overtime

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    MaxwellHowe maple1967leafs We can get those guns here in Canada.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    maple1967leafs TheCanucksnaphook Still going eh?

  • maple1967leafs

    TheCanucksnaphook maple1967leafs 3-2 La

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    maple1967leafs TheCanucksnaphook Thanks.

  • Rhaegar_

    Excuse my ignorance with this Moncton shooting, but did he just target RCMP officers? He just tracked some down and started shooting, or was he doing something else that brought them to the scene?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Rhaegar_ Walked around with weapons slung over his shoulders…they responded to a “man with a gun”.  I believe that is how it unfolded.

  • maple1967leafs

    Rhaegar_ I think someone called in that an armed man was walking around  Then he attacked the RC’s when they responded
