Loiselle on Robidas, Komarov, Polak & Frattin acquisitions for Leafs

Leafs asst. GM Claude Loiselle says that his club came out with more “sandpaper” with new defencemen Stephane Robidas & Roman Polak, and got a “glue guy” with the re-acquisition of Leo Komarov from the KHL.

  • Bruffins

    so you’re telling me that Loiselle hasn’t been fired yet….

  • TheGroobster

    Bruffins Says Franson is being negotiated with…. GM tries to trade him for Gorges 2 days ago (2nd round pick value)… Should we believe anything this man says?

  • maximus_asinus

    he is talking about putting together a competitive 4th line and actually playing them!

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    maximus_asinus management has definitely been saying all the right things. Attempting to address the issues that everyone has noticed for a long time now

  • MikeGartner11

    My favourite is the if you look at teams who succeeded last year they played 4 lines bit. As if the Rangers and Kings came up with it last year and we are now implementing it….Wow…. #thingsNHLpeopleshouldknowabout

    @MikeGartner11 #RedWings

  • TheGroobster

    The_Polish_Cannon maximus_asinus That or they are just telling us what we want to hear

  • LeafsGuru

    Or shanny has told them that’s nothing new and that why we are losing

  • LeafsGuru

    Maple leaf high.

  • MikeGartner11

    Also concerned with on July 2nd or July 3rd everyone looks at their roster and says Oh my God…….Really? NHL managers should plan better….

  • LeafsGuru

    Is everyone having lunch? Where are the comments

  • DARF24

    both Phi (1.2M ) and  Chi (2.2 M) over cap. could we help them and ourselves?

  • Armchair GM

    I don’t know what to think of Franson, but the fact that the Habs wanted him is interesting… say what you want about them, they have good scouting…

    isn’t it too quiet today?

  • Armchair GM

    Likely time the Sens get a new GM… Murray is a cranky old buzzard… between him and Melnyk no wonder they have issues…

  • TheGroobster

    Interesting note on Carlyle there

    Armchair GM I give him credit though, my grandma is a year older than him and she’s losing it. Mind gets weaker.

  • Armchair GM

    Kouba Armchair GM Agreed, we should be more respectful of seniors…

  • Armchair GM

    Getting Leo may help entice the other young Finn prospect to sign… need a Finn to win !!

  • TheGroobster

    Couldn’t we entice NYI to take Clarkson? They are $7M below the floor. Maybe we could get Okposo for Clarkson + pick or something…

  • Yaknowwhat

    TheGroobster  Nobody is taking Clarkson….noooooooobody….

  • Armchair GM

    CanuckUKinToronto Armchair GM Yes… I have no idea if he’s ready though…

    Lot of talk Leafs were in on Brian Boyle but he went to Tampa for family reasons. Would have been that 3/4 centre they talked about.

  • Xxxxxnew

    Wife is from Tampa.

  • TheGroobster

    Yaknowwhat I don’t agree with that

  • Yaknowwhat

    TheGroobster Yaknowwhat  I’m offended : )

  • LeafsGuru

    Okposo is not being traded

  • TheGroobster

    LeafsGuru Then lets grab Clutterbuck

  • Loric76

    Xxxxxnew yup.  McKenzie says we were finalists and offered more.  Chose Tampa because his wife is from there

  • Loric76

    LeafsGuru neither is Clarkson

  • TheGroobster

    Clarkson + Franson for Okposo or Clutterbuck + 3rd rounder

  • rickpearce76

    Loric76 Xxxxxnew Glad to see we were at least in the mix. He’s the one UFA i was hoping to land.

  • steele123

    TheGroobster There is no way NYI ever do that.

  • TheGroobster

    steele123 They need to hit the cap floor

  • HHT

    #ClaudeGirouxAssGrab

  • rickpearce76

    TheGroobster steele123 They could do that by offering legwand 5 mil and not give up Okposo and a 3rd pick.

  • steele123

    TheGroobster steele123 But trading one of their best players, very nice grinder AND a decent pick won’t happen.

  • TheGroobster

    rickpearce76 Sorry I should have made it clearer either for Okposo by himself or Clutterbuck + 3rd rounder

  • TheGroobster

    steele123 Okposo by himself OR Clutterbuck + 3rd rounder

  • steele123

    TheGroobster steele123 Still not gonna happen. Clutterbuck is a younger version of Clarkson

  • TheGroobster

    steele123 Clarskon and Franson?

  • Yaknowwhat

    Yan28  Can we stop reporting on all the guys we didn’t sign…and who went elsewhere….

  • Yaknowwhat

    Dewy Keon Hogturd  Coach needs to have the final say or he is just a puppet…how can you be held accountable for your record if your being forced to play certain players….that said…your dead right…Carlyle is on thin ice…and he knows it….so yeh…Nonis and Shammy will be telling him how it goes from here on out….til he’s fired..
