TSN 1050: Leafs Lunch: July 2 – Dave Nonis

  • Loric76

    Interesting that Nonis thinks Leivo, Broll, Percy, and Granberg all have good shots at the the Leafs this year, with Carrick not far behind.

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    players actually text nonis after the Leo signing to let him know how thrilled they were to have him back. That’s pretty cool to hear!

  • Xxxxxnew

    @Hope_Smoke: Nonis “Reimer is a good guy and a professional. There is no issue with him. I expect him to be at camp & I expect him to be a Leaf”

  • Gozo

    I never, never and never thought that KOMAROV will be back with Toronto.

  • Cloud09

    Loric76 Tank job in full effect.

  • Xxxxxnew

    They sure paid him enough to come back.

  • Gozo

    Xxxxxnew So you think the money made him to come back?

  • Pazzuzzu

    A small, injury prone 37 year old D man, a third liner in the KHL, and then go and swap a 22 year old borderline NHL player with speed for a 26 year old borderline NHL player with speed? WTF?
    This franchise is spinning their wheels and have been for 45+ years and continue to do so.
    They lose, every year they lose. They only lose enough to miss the playoffs and NOT qualify for a top 3 pick. What top end free agent is going to come to Toronto when the odds are the team will lose, not to mention the daft signings and the love of tossing away picks like they have a bad smell?
          Every season the Leafs are a cap team with little space, yet they consistantly finish out of the playoffs.
          When is this franchise going to grow some stones, stop with the band aid hear, stop gap there mentality, tear it down and build this team correctly? Trade big ticket guys like Kessel, Dion, Clarkson, Lupul, ETC. and rebuild. Get some good young players with some good upside, MANAGE THE CAP WELL(why spend 69M only to finish out of the playoffs and out of the draft lottery?), and draft and develope your own prospects…McDavid anyone?
          Leafs got some decent young players to work with… Kadri,Bozak,JVR,Reilly,Gardiner,Franson,Holland,Bernier plus a good minor league team…cut the fat around these guys and rebuild this thing PLEASE!!

    Now the hubbub over FA signings and lack of for a better word, I would say that our roster is pretty much 90% set in stone. There are a few things the Leafs can do this coming fall without breaking the bank.
    Bottom line is this – coming up this fall – this is a fragile group of players, coaches AND management. They know that Leaf nation is laughing at them and the rest of the NHL is looking down on this team in a way that says – “man we feel sorry for you but hey we’re gonna feast on you easily for two points”

    1. Call up those in the Marlies. For heaven’s sake, we fans and management have to stop looking for short cuts and start playing our youngsters some more. Bring up Lievo and Carrick and whomever – let them play. Let them play through their mistakes.

    2. Hold Carlyle more accountable for the actions on ice. Discipline players by benching them if they don’t perform to the standards of being a Maple Leaf. Encourage the assistant coaches to speak out when discussing things with Carlye – stop depending on veterans – unleash the dogs and roll all four lines.

    3. If Riemer is going to stay – make him happy somehow – work with Carlye to watch his mouth in press conferences – even if your goalie sucked on a few goals – talk to him and encourage. Don’t disparage him on the bench during games. Don’t pull people down when they are working up towards their goals – don’t be such an asshole all the time. That type of behavior can have a ripple effect on the bench in games.

    4. I work in IT and have a great boss who has an open door – we go in and say hi all the time. She’s awesome and fair. I expect that of Carlye and all two assistant coaches – I don’t know how it is in Randy’s locker room. The coach is not going to be your best friend or dad but he’s also responsible for putting forth a good morale.

    5. Get Dione to speak up more. To be more vocal. I’ve noticed he has regressed with his on ice persona and he’s almost invisible personality wise.

    6. If you don’t have a sense of humor I don’t think you should be playing hockey.

    Pazzuzzu Tell us something we don’t know http://www.livefyre.com/profile/16825986/… You can’t really have a rebuild without losing most of your favorite players. 
    I don’t expect anybody to regress this season, infact I think every player on this team will have a better year. There is still time for this team to do something, and for the players currently on our roster to step up. Don’t hurl yourself off a building, just be patient.

  • Xxxxxnew

    I think Toronto was first in his list, unless he got a bigger offer somewhere else. I also think Leo has potential that wasn’t tapped last time around that could make that salary look like a bargain.

  • Cloud09

    Pazzuzzu 28 year old “young” Bozak eh??

  • TuckerForPunishment

    Cloud09 Pazzuzzu I’m 41 and I’m oozing youthful exuberance.

  • vinoa

    Pazzuzzu Leo played on the top line for Dynamo and was their leading scorer…

  • Xxxxxnew

    Pazzuzzu Edmonton’s been trying this for almost a decade.

  • theacs1966

    Pazzuzzu What are you talking about?  The Leafs are one of the youngest teams in the league, and Komarov was no 3rd liner, he was one of Moscow’s leading scorers, on the first line, on a championship team.

  • Waiting4LSC

    We draft them young, we trade for them when they are close to retiring. In-between, few stay, and few come out of choice. A nursery/graveyard feel. In life, most things come full circle, so I guess the Leafs are at the center, so nothing can go full circle.  My sorry butt wants to see a WOW moment, guess a Thrill wrister will have to do, or maybe a Leo hit. Just maybe, this squad can surprise me, cos Management aren’t capable.

  • Komas Taberle

    Pazzuzzu
    Actually he was 1st liner in the KHL, 2nd line for his country andthat injury prone Dman is hard as nails and can easily recover from a broken leg, it’s not a knee or an ankle.
    Frattin is twice as good as D’Amigo… early days, don’t fret, let’s see what else they do, 3 months until we play for real.

  • Komas Taberle

    The_Polish_Cannon
    They are all brown nosing the boss man.

  • Xxxxxnew

    Waiting4LSC At some point we have to upgrade our top line centre. I think an awful lot would fall into place if that one move was possible. Unfortunately No. 1 Cs are the hottest commodity in the NHL and no one is giving thenaway, not even even really old ones.

    if the team does well this year with these pissy little moves, will it completely blow your mind?
    or will you just find something else to be upset about?

    BOS has to make a move on D…what about Boychuck?

  • dlb Mad

    JMAC17 
    haha, we have too many righties
    (who said that)

  • Armchair GM

    Pazzuzzu I don’t think your formula will work in Toronto… Montreal recognizes this and insulates its young players with vets because of the unique pressure of playing in such a market…

  • Loric76

    dlb Mad after the number of points he’s going to put up in his rookie season?

  • Armchair GM

    JMAC17 I’d prefer greater speed… I’d like the Leafs to eat lightning… and crap thunder…

    So according to Dreger the Leafs are heavily in on Legwand . Wonder what his asking price is ?

  • JMAC17

    dlb Mad JMAC17 No sure where it was..just some banter about it, nothing like Mac of Dregger saying they were shopping him…but him or Seidenberg make sense to move.

    didnt know he was a Righty

  • ProfessorRance

    Loric76 Hopefully too much.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Loric76 Doesnt Legwand suck?

  • Loric76

    ProfessorRance Loric76 I think Legwand could be good for 1-3 years on the cheap

  • Loric76

    TheCanucksnaphook Loric76 ya but I’d rather him than Ott

  • Axle_Goalie

    Would love the leafs to make a deal with Chicago, but I’m highly doubtful of that.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Loric76 TheCanucksnaphook Tell ya I take Boyle and Ott over Komarov and Legwand ….and it costs MUCH less to do so.

  • Mind Bomb

    Loric76 TheCanucksnaphook Would rather Carrick, Legwand is done

  • JMAC17

    Loric76 Made 3.5 last year…figure something around there…be solid 3rd C…push Kadri a bit….Legwand has some offense to him

  • dlb Mad

    ProfessorRance
    OR hopefully a bargain

  • dlb Mad

    Axle_Goalie 
    Oooooh do yah?
    we really shaw

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Axle_Goalie What kinda deal?
    We need to start making hockey trades for quality (see Dallas) as opposed to stupid UFA signings.

  • ProfessorRance

    Loric76 ProfessorRance I would rather have Holland develop and keep the cap space if a number one a or b come around.
