Tim Horton Talk


- I am hearing Dallas and Toronto are talking not the NHL teams, just the Mayors. 


- Toronto has the 1st overall pick in trade that will send Gardiner to Florida all thats left is dotting the lower case j's. We heard there could be upwards of 9. 


- Colorado is letting Stastny walk, when asked if Toronto was a possibility Stastny replied, maybe...

Just saw what Mckenzie was saying about Kadri, jesus I hope the Leafs aren't serious about trading him.

Would anyone be opposed to the idea of trading Lupul for the 11th pick and sign someone like Matt Moulson. If not, he might be a bit more expensive but get Vanek. I think this is good asset management.

Unfortunately, the Leafs have an inside track on nothing except fan heartbreak.  @Dewy Keon Hogturd

@Dewy Keon Hogturd  Shit! My earlier ramblings might come true. Kane-Kadri-Lupul and The American line of JVR-Stastny-Kessel. Dion saga might be over so everyone can move on.

@Dewy Keon Hogturd I read in the Denver post yesterday Stastny has said he is willing to take a pay cut and the two sides are working their way through the technicalities.

"Among all of the Los Angeles Kings players, staff, friends and family who were on the Staples Center ice celebrating a second championship in three seasons, there was Chris Sutter, the 21-year old son of head coach Darryl Sutter.

Chris was born with Down syndrome. Doctor’s told Darryl and his wife, Wanda, that their son might not live long after birth and if he did, he’d likely be deaf and blind.

He defeated those obstacles and Friday night he celebrated again with his “brother” Anze Kopitar and the Stanley Cup.

“Let’s do it again!” You've got to love the optimism. And the way the Kings are set up, there's a decent shot Chris will be celebrating again in the near future."

Cool to see his son, though. Sutter's an amazing guy.

I have zero interest in Vanek.  Moulson is an interesting option, though he could cost more than Lupul.  I'm not apposed to keeping Lupes as long as we maintain a good supply of bubble wrap.  Btw, Lupes won't land us the 11th overall (imo anyways).  We'd be selling low.  Best we hold onto him, in hopes he has a good season, then reassess the situation next summer.

Watched Moulson throughout the playoffs closely

He was ineffective and looked disinterested

Used to live on Lake Erie and used to get visiting fishermen in a panic claiming they saw a shark/whatever. There used to be a lot of sturgeons around mouth of the Grand river but you woul't ever see them because they're bottom feeders. They can get up to 9 feet long and live 70-120 years.

He was away from the game for a while when Chris was a kid, after his time with the Blackhawks I think. The Sutter family sounds pretty tight.

@Xxxxxnew Thanks for clarifying that,   I thought it was Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys.  lol

I don't want him but it must have been weird going into playoffs with your third team of the season.

@Dewy Keon Hogturd Interesting. No surprise that the Leafs as supposedly in on a lot of stuff, hits/clicks wise, but then again last year did not go well (yet again). Always fun to read though.

No, he has Down Syndrome.

Oh, it's no biggie. His son has Downe Syndrome. I think the joke was the naked Sutter. Sutter always spends time with parents of Down syndrome kids when he visits other cities during the season. He gets letters all the time and writes to all of them. He's a good role model.

@Pent_House @Cloud09 I think it's more the latter and the same old Nonis quote that they always listen to offers for any player. Bobby is just name dropping to stir a buzz, and I fall for it every time because this wouldn't be the first time the Leafs did something silly like this.

@Xxxxxnew I saw that when I took a 2nd look,  at first glance I thought it was the guy who plays Bubbles, wearing street clothes and regular glasses.
