  • Mattmark

    The longer one looks at this roster, the more sense it makes for Leafs to package Franson and Ashton for a d-man in whom management has some confidence.  (Of course, as always, the trick is getting the other side to see value in what you’re trying to give away.)

  • Optimustic

    In respect to the PPP article from above, they suggest the only way to realize Franson’s value is to compare him to players that have been used in similar roles.
    “Well – the most logical thing to do would be to compare his minutes and usage to players who see comparable minutes and usage and see how they fared in comparison to Franson. ”

    It’s tough to do, because the other player usually plays for a different team.  I can’t think of a single d-man that has played well in TO other than Dion ( even he’s debatable according to some — see Wiski)  For some reason ( systems IMO ) under both RC and RW we don’t play the game defensively.   Perhaps the team takes the expression ” Burn the boats ” a little too literally?  Whatever the problem is, it’s not just the d-men, and it may not be just the players in general, it may be a common coaching philosophy.   Either way, until it’s fixed, we won’t be a serious cup contender.

    Bruins, can we get Boychick out of them

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    CanuckUKinToronto Mattmark florida’s power play was brutal, they really need a right handed PP specialist. Kulikov has been rumoured to be on the trade block, he’s been playing top 4 and getting second most ice time of all D-men on florida.
    Rielly – Phaneuf
    Gardiner – Robidas
    Kulikov – Polak

    Thank goodness they finally updated Kontiola’s youtube highlight reel.  I was getting worried.

  • Leafs2 Isles1

    Optimustic I think that their has been a long term belief that the Leafs should play a “Canadian style” of game. I believe that that style is considered to be an attack focused game that is loose on structure. The premise seems to be that such a game is more entertaining to watch, and when played well, is more difficult to play against. Structures can be broken down. Creativity can’t be because the opposition never quite knows what will happen next.

    The problem is that such a game requires either a lot of hockey smarts or dependable veterans (both would be better). It worked fairly well in the Pat Quinn years. Over the past number of years, our team just hasn’t had enough of those types of players. Where the theory breaks down on such a team is defense. The offence still scores. But the defense looks bad.

  • BlueSmoke

    I’m a big Bautista fan but the guy is the furthest from a leader you can get. Expressing his displeasure because AA(GM of Blue jays) didn’t manage to upgrade the roster at the deadline, this is pathetic. AA has upgraded the roster more then any other teams with the additions over the years of Reyes, Encarnacion, Rasmus, Buerle etc I wouldn’t of minded Masterson but at some point you have to stop trading away all your prospects and is masterson really better then what we already have. In case you don’t know what this rant is about.

    BlueSmoke Isn’t there a Blue Jays site where you could vent your spleen over this silliness?

  • BlueSmoke

    We really need someone on the PP that can riffle the one timer from the point, I feel like Reilly is capable but doesn’t, Dion can’t, Gardiner haven’t seen it, maybe Robidas. Even our forwards especially kessel stop the puck first then shoot, imagine how dangerous he would be if he could one time the puck, I feel like that is the only difference between him and the rest of the elite scorers in the league.

  • BlueSmoke

    hoolihan BlueSmoke I have no idea but 90% of the ppl here are jays fans and there’s nothing leafs left to talk about and mlb trade deadline was yesterday.

  • BlueSmoke

    The_Polish_Cannon CanuckUKinToronto Mattmark Kulikov is a pretty good player. Franson in a package might get it done but it would take more then just him.

  • BlueSmoke

    Zep2 not without getting robbed like every other trade involving the bruins

    Good morning Folks !

  • Jordan29

    holy shit, this coyotes mess might be back. Apparently they violated some law with the sale or something. Not sure exactly just heard people talking about it

  • Burtonboy

    Gilbey93 I’d say having Dion play right side on PP # 1 with Gardiner  and have Franson play the right side on PP # 2 with Reilly is a pretty good set up . That’s 2 really good trigger men. Randy is just so stubborn . Having Dion play quarterback passing the puck back and forth with Kessel on the half wall is a waste of Dion’s talent .

  • Jordan29

    ITS FUCKING RIELLY NOT REILLY…..BRABABABABABABABABA

  • Jordan29

    The_Polish_Cannon CanuckUKinToronto Mattmark they were long rumored to trade kulikov. But its likely to take more then Franny pants

  • Zep2

    Jordan29 Really

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29 Gilbey93 Big fuckin deal . There are different forms of spelling for that name . Some places spell it one way and some spell it another. Yes he does spell it Rielly but it s an easy mistake to make . Its not like I called him asshole or something

  • Jordan29

    Burtonboy Jordan29 Gilbey93 BANISHED YOU ARE!

  • Mind Bomb

    Jordan29 Its O’reilly and he plays in Colorado, Geessshhhh !

  • 656goals

    Good mornng everybody, I enjoyed the Leo Komorov montage. He reminds me a little bit of Wendel Clark Im old enough to remember he’s like the Finnish version Wendel 2.0 or something. I like the way he plays and can’t wait to see him runnng around keeping the other team honest.

  • maple1967leafs

    And then there is Seamus O’Reily but he is not a hockey player

  • hoolihan

    Jordan29 Old news, but apparently a few mmbers of Glendale met with the Coyotes ownership group prior to the meeting at which the voted on the lease agreement, and basically laid out the city’s position, thereby revealing a lot of confidential information. The new mayor, who voted against the deal, found out about the meeting, and is claiming that the council members violated some city and/ot state laws regarding the disclosure of the information. He is attempting to have the deal nullified.

  • Burtonboy

    Mind Bomb Jordan29 The yanks and the Brits changed it saying i before e is the correct way . The irish said go fuck yourself lol

  • Jordan29

    Watching those videos, you get the sense that Kontiola is more skilled then we are expecting. I still think moving Holland in a package, maybe with Franson and something should be used to get a #1 centre or another top LD.

  • Mind Bomb

    Burtonboy Mind Bomb Jordan29 Hhaha, those Crazy Irish

  • Burtonboy

    hoolihan Jordan29 Sooner it happens the better . I want a team in QC so I can at least drive to game a few times a yrs

  • hoolihan

    Mind Bomb Gidday! What’s new?
    My last day before a month-long vacation … can’t wait to get out of here!

  • LeafsGuru

    No to moving holland unless it’s a true number 1. A LD for the last pairing should be straight up for Franson.

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29 Can never have enough good centers bro.

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy hoolihan Jordan29 Don’t hold your breath BB, i heard two more people bought season tickets

  • Jordan29

    LeafsGuru we as much as i like holland, i think too many people are all hot and heavy about him because hes a leaf prospect and played well in the AHL playoffs we just watched. Doesnt mean he will be anything more then a depth player for us ever

  • Burtonboy

    maple1967leafs Burtonboy hoolihan Jordan29 Keeping my fingers crossed . They at least have a new arena under construction

  • Mind Bomb

    hoolihan Mind Bomb Oh nice, this is my last day as well, but for only week lol not a Month. I am going after the ever elusive for me Muskie fish ! 

    #longestfridayever

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29 LeafsGuru Too many people are hot and heavy to make trades that usually wind with us giving away a player who lights it up somewhere else . People never learn

  • maple1967leafs

    Burtonboy maple1967leafs hoolihan Jordan29 I think Quebec gets a team inside 3 years,maybe not the yotes but maybe expansion including Seattle

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ KingKadri

    I don’t see a move including a package of Holland+Franson+ . It just seems that Nonis and Shanny saw what happened last year as a true need for depth on the team. Depth such as Holland and even Frattin and Ashton (the two latter being able to be sent down?)
