does anyone remember if franson played the left side last year at all? i guess he couldnt really get any worse

See that someone suggested Dany Heatley. Not sure why??? But I'd be ok with it as long as we give him a hot new ferrari as a signing bonus and make him agree to drive Clarkson to the rink every day.

sp after doing so searching, it sounds like Polak was moved up to play top 4 a few times last year with backman and others. They moved Shattenkirk down because he was not good defensively and Polak played his off side more then a few times. If he can here we are set keeping the noob franson

This year...Tampa will kick our ass, Florida still mostly sucks, Boston will kick our ass, Montreal will finish ahead of us, Islanders may give us a run...with a healthy Halak.

well if are not going to get anyone, i dont see why mcclement is such a bad idea as the 4th line centre again. i KNOW HES NOTHING more, but we need someone

Komarov and Robidas were the right moves to make today. Good job by mgmt. Not sure what the Frattin deal was all about, but the signings were key acquisitions. 


Unfortunately for MLHS, there's the usual prozac shortage among factions of its benefactors

@Jordan29 HE is perfect because if he does anything at all, we can unload him at the trade deadline.  Thats why I would take this sort of a chance.  Keeps Clarkson down on line 3 too.

Raymond had more goals and 17 more points than heatley this year.

@Xxxxxnew hes 26 and only 126 career games. give him another shot. if nothing else hes a 4th line grinder

@peterbleafs why are you here just to rub it in and give us true Leafs fans a big headache,,,,,,once a hater always a hater I guess

@Leafbites If Kadri and Frattin can rekindle their chemistry together (Frattin played well with Lupul as well) then we just got a perfect top 6 winger for 800k. If not, then we replaced Raymond with someone who will actually go into the corners and along the boards while allowing Clarkson a spot back on the 2nd PP.

@Leafbites So Nonis traded Scrivens, D'Amigo, a cond. 7th and a 2nd for Bernier. Not bad.

After his disaster season I hope Frattin shows he wants it at camp.

@The_Polish_Cannon @Jordan29 who said he had a bad attitude?

JVR-Bozak-Kessel

Lupul-Kadri-Heatley

Frattin-Komarov-Clarkson

Broll-Holland-Ashton

might work if he woke up, then deal him at the deadline

@Jordan29 @Bobsyouruncle Stralman was on the brink of bagging groceries or pumping gas.............. ppl will do amazing things when they get a second chance.

@Bruffins @Jordan29 lol well their fans want him gone. ask any of them. They all thought he was as good as gone this summer and now BAM they lose polak

peterbleafs

@DJGLENN22 @peterbleafs Not a hater, love my leafs...but realistic..same coach is the biggest issue, and no material changes...Polak role was supposedly Gleasons last year...he couldnt handle it...so we retain cap hit to get rid of him and bring in Polak. Same coach, basically same roster, tougher competition...and we expect better? 

Hmmm
Hmmm

@Jordan29 @Bruffins Lots of people here want Phaneuf gone.  Even if heaven sent us down one of their gods, no one seems able to live up to expectations.

@peterbleafs @Jordan29 @Leafbites frattin showed more offensive upside. Remember him with Kadri. D'amigo has upside but not as much as Frattin. Would be nice to keep both though

@The_Polish_Cannon @peterbleafs @DJGLENN22 I do really like Robidas and loved his interview saying how he would pair with one of our young guys and bring him along.  That to me was a terrific decision and I really loved Komarov and Polak deals.

@Jordan29 @peterbleafs @Leafbites I see Frattin, Komarov as huge improvements to our bottom 6.  But DAmigo ins tead of Frattin, would be no difference, both are fast, both have some scoring, both shorter, +200lbs...same.
