TSN 1050: Leafs Lunch: July 2 – Dave Nonis
@Marlies Man Pretty sure you can get away with just William Nylander :)
@Marlies Man They're going to have to put his name down his sleeve
Does Anyone have excess to see how these players do to get intel or video with the camp coming up next week id love to see how connor brown nylander and the sweds do
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:
Nonis on the radio stating the 4th line needs to contribute
All good signs to me
@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 Florida Panthers I would say at the top of my head.
@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 Upgrade on Malholtra for them.
@ingy56 Good luck Jay! You were a trooper for us until Randy ran you into the ground.
@FrycersGhost There's your answer.
@ingy56 Well on the bright side, Legwand would be a step up from McClement
@WendelGilmour July 7th-11th
@WendelGilmour It's right after the Ring sizing Day and Parade route clarifications for the players
@ingy56 Law and Order theme song plays while the game loads.
@Bigfoot_for_1C You don't say.
@Bigfoot_for_1C Not the good McGinn though.
@ingy56 Kid looks huge.
doesn't know how to spell "boy". Get a look at this loser...
@ingy56 That was cruel.
@FrycersGhost Hasn't signed yet.
@FrycersGhost Still awaiting a call.
@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.
@Eye of the Tiger I don't mind that at all, Laughton's a nice prospect and fills a need.
@Eye of the Tiger lol for some strange reason I thought I read Brayden Schenn!
@Eye of the Tiger Hah, not a chance the Flyers would take this.
@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.
