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.
- Ray Ferraro is less than convinced this is the draft class worth trading up to #1 for.
- Maple Leafs Boss Tim Leiweke is Proud of the Kings. That’s nice for him.
- Maple Leafs have more role players than future stars on the Marlies says Michael Traikos
- The Flyers and Leafs will again play a preseason game in London’s Budweiser Gardens next September
- Maple Leafs goaltending prospect Antoine Bibeau has been signed to his entry level contract
- Ho Hum, another LA Kings playoff comeback. Kings lead the SCF 1-0.
I was hearing rumbling about Kings going up for sale. So we buy them, swap out all the players, send our guys to the beaches in LA, keeping a couple or three
Islanders have to go all out this year since they don't have a 1st next year and could potentially give away McDavid for a few months of Vanek.
Nick Ritchie: OK, 13.6 bodyfat is not going to cut it at the next level. Still, at six-foot-two-and-a-half and 223 lb., he is a load, and his VO2 numbers were in the average range and strength numbers somewhat above. On the whole, about what you’d expect. (I saw someone hoarding sandwiches from the banquet table at the combine. I didn’t get his number but I think it was Alexis Pepin, a Gatineau centre whose body fat registered at a combine-worst 14.4.)
@Jmessih Because there are a bunch of different people on here with different opinions. I for one would still not want Boyle unless he were cheaper than say, Gleason. Then Gleason was moved.
@Mcost61 Ballard should have done that with Edmonton,
@Jmessih He is my CS winner
@TheCanucksnaphook Cry Havoc, and unleash the dogs of war! or let slip
@TheCanucksnaphook They would be much better with Bozak
@BigTO Don't hate him, but
Phaneuf (Rielly down the road?)
That's the type of strength you need at 1C, 1D and 1G to consistently contend.
@Alec Brownscombe Islanders are pretty much not anyone's dream destination, IMO
@Alec Brownscombe Now this guy is an insider ?
@Burtonboy Have we done anything aside from the assistant coach firings?
@whalz Maybe a conditional 7th.
@Alec Brownscombe Maybe they have something better in mind
@CanuckUKinToronto Nothing substantiated
3 years from now , Rielly and Bernier will may compete with them , especially Bruins. Fix Bozak though
@Alec Brownscombe I don't see a difference ;)
@wiski @mcloki @Mcost61 @Alec Brownscombe it's funny how an alegedly world class city like Toronto, has a terrible soccer stadium, A bad baseball Stadium and a poor Hockey rink.What the hell. Maple Leaf Gardens should be 25,000 seats. The skydome should have sat 100,000 at least NFL level. and BMO field. ?
