At the very least, all those who were of the opinion that RC was calling the player personnel shots can take comfort knowing that doesn't appear to be the case:

McClement Out

Bolland Out

Nonis on the radio stating the 4th line needs to contribute

All good signs to me

That's right, also a good sign

@Ydargo Nonis also said that Carlyle hasn't been brought in to give input on roster changes. Which is a clue that Management might not have as much faith in him, last year he seemed to work closely with Nonis on roster changes

@TheCanucksnaphook This is the first year where we are seeing a legitimate roster turnover to be honest. Normally it's a few pieces here and there.

@TheCanucksnaphook A few probably, but the year we made the playoffs was the year we made the fewest changes - even after the dreaded 18-wheeler off the cliff.

@ingy56 Good luck Jay! You were a trooper for us until Randy ran you into the ground.

@ProfessorRance @Bruffins @ingy56 Oh, I can just see it now, the latest hat from the Leafs. The Nylander, for the follicly challenged it includes blonde locks flowing out from underneath. Get yours now $39.95.

@FrycersGhost Don't think so. Seem set on playing Holland in the 4 spot. So looking for a 3C at this point in time.

Flyers are looking to dump salary so let me suggest the following.


Franson, Percy and Orr to Philadelphia for Brayden Coburn and Scott Laughton


Flyers dump Coburn's salary ($4.5 x 2) in exchange for Franson (3.0) and Orr (925K)  and they can dump Orr into the minors and save the cap.... total savings 1.5 million, Leafs dump excess weight (Orr) and move a right hand offensive defenseman for another strong stay at home body (either the 1b to help Phaneuf or play 2b and allow Robidas to side Phaneuf)


The price for the cap relief is an exchange of top level prospects.  Flyers get a young puck moving defenseman with potential to develop into top 4 defense, Leafs get a young centre with potential to develop into solid 2-3 centre


In order to make this work, I would even consider adding a low level prospect, a late pick or cash (1 million) to entice the Flyers to bite.


I hate giving up Percy but Laughton could be something special and now is the time to strike while Philly is cap challenged.

@ingy56 @Eye of the Tiger I wouldn't mind it too much either. But Laughton is a favourite of theirs. Not to mention I think he might be ready for the NHL jump this season.

@Bigfoot_for_1C @Eye of the Tiger  Don't be too sure. They need cap room, have a great need for an offensive defenseman as they have lots of bangers but no movers other than Streit (even the minors is bare of puck movers). Franson gives the one this year, and Percy either late in year or next.  They are the opposite of us, they have young forwards but limited young defense. We have young defense but limited centres.  This is a real hockey trade. You need to give up to get.  Our advantage is we can send them cap for this year ( Orr and $1milllion) and Laughton-Holland fill your 3-4 centre with a low budget vet as back up.
