    Has the clitsome and 2nd round pick for Franson and Reimer gone away?

  • Komas Taberle

    jbman5
    Clitsome was in Toronto for medical this week, he failed his Winnipeg medical, but that is not unusual in that most teams trading an injured player will not clear him as that puts liability on the team that currently owns him.

  • jbman5

    Komas Taberle jbman5 what is your source?

  • jbman5

    I personally don’t like the trade much either. I’d wait for both Reimer and Franson to improve their value during the season and then look to trade them. Reimer and Franson should BOTH net second round picks.

  • Burtonboy

    jbman5 Reimer signing new deal at a good price probably means he’s here for the time being . Franson is a different story . Franson and Reimer for Clitsome and a 2nd is a bad trade for us any way.

  • Komas Taberle

    CanuckUKinToronto jbman5
    The rumour was started by a poster on HB who predicted Winnik signing with Toronto 4 days before word was leaked to press.
    He got the money right too and also the other team Winnipeg in the running.
    He hangs out with agents , one of whom is Clitsonme’s agent.

  • dlb Mad

    One of the Ads top right is a known scam site.  Tread lightly.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Not too long of a month….got some prospects hockey on at the very least.  Its helping with the summer or maybe just a tease?

    San Jose still has to make a shit ton of moves, and we still need to move a few bodies out.   Stay patient my friends.

  • dlb Mad

    TheCanucksnaphook 
    what about your Ducks?  you’re more concerned with the competition.  Kings rule bah ha ha.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    dlb Mad TheCanucksnaphook Ducks will be just fine…in fact I would be concerned (if I were a Leafs fan) that their greatness doesnt win the East as well as the West.

  • dlb Mad

    TheCanucksnaphook
    as if

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    I also ordered a few Ducks jerseys.  Not to hop on the bandwagon but I hear this Corey (sp?) Perry kid might become something solid.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    dlb Mad TheCanucksnaphook I am proud of you for using that video link.    I give this effort 15 thumbs up.

  • peterbleafs

    TheCanucksnaphook Every hockey fan should have a plan B team, especially if you are a Leafs fan.  Most of us have found a way to cheer for some other team in the playoffs otherwise what is the point?

  • Burtonboy

    47 days till pre-season

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    peterbleafs TheCanucksnaphook Actually in all seriousness, I cannot do it.

    I bleed blue and white so much that I will watch Playoffs hockey and cheer loud but for the Marlies.  I rarely watch any playoffs hockey once the Leafs are eliminated.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Burtonboy And we have Rookie Camp before that, and Main Camp…..right?  RiGHT !!??

  • dlb Mad

    TheCanucksnaphook
    will you be doing some reports for us again this year?

  • peterbleafs

    TheCanucksnaphook peterbleafs Oh I recall certain periods where you were the Leafs anti-christ lol

  • vinoa

    TheCanucksnaphook I know exactly what you mean. This playoffs probably had some of the best series in the West, but I just couldn’t follow teams that I didn’t care about. The last 2 playoffs I’ve paid attention to were the lockout shortened season and Vancouver’s run.

  • Jordan29

    whats the best way to buy tickets to the florida and tb games for march?

  • dlb Mad

    CanuckUKinToronto
    i don’t know what he’s really all about, but every time i catch a game he comes off looking like a Josh George type player.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jordan29 directly thru the team.  I am guessing.  

    You can probably get a good deal thru the team website that will include parking, some food etc.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    dlb Mad TheCanucksnaphook I do not believe so.  But I am sure that AB and Declan will have a guy down there!

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    vinoa TheCanucksnaphook I heard good things, I turned on one series fro all of 5 minutes and then shut it down.

  • dlb Mad

    TheCanucksnaphook
    what happened?  i thought you enjoyed that.

  • Burtonboy

    Jordan29 Google purchase tickets for Panthers and Tampa  games .

  • Jordan29

    Someone do something about this, I have been blocked long ago and cannot

    dlb Mad Nothing happened.  I love doing it, wish more guy who love the Leafs could experience it.

    Great behind the scenes look at our team.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jordan29 Lol.  Of course you have.

  • peterbleafs

    vinoa TheCanucksnaphook Agreed I only watched when I felt a compelling story line, which wasnt that often in this playoffs series.  The east was clearly going to get beaten by the west winner so the cup was a foregone conclusion once the west was settled.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jordan29 Haha.  Brodie is “way better” than Gardiner?  That part?

  • dlb Mad

    so what did you do this summer?  kid from Thornhill played on his backyard rollercoaster.  that he built himself over the last few years.  good job, son.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    dlb Mad I cut the lawn…..once.

  • Jordan29

    TheCanucksnaphook Jordan29 the whole thread just rips gardiner with no facts. a few flames fans use logic and disagree only to be ripped on again. Oh and Gardiner is now overpaid just so you know

    once my dream of playing ended there was the dream of coaching.  the years are fading on that dream too, so my next dream is getting behind the scenes to rub elbows and just absorb it all.  when that dream passes me by i’ll become a teacher, of course.

  • dlb Mad

    TheCanucksnaphook
    nice.  as an alternative, next year just throw a little extra fertalizer down.  take a break from grass.

  • dlb Mad

    Jordan29
    why do they care so much our guy?

  • vinoa

    peterbleafs I think that’s the worst part. It was like the East was just getting to decide who’ll get to lose in the finals. I was hoping that the Kings might be burnt out from 4 intense 7 game series, but not tired enough apparently.

  • Jordan29

    dlb Mad Jordan29 they have nothing else to feel good about?

  • dlb Mad

    Norris up to AAA?  that’s a lot of promotions in a year.  i don’t know…but i’ll be optimistic.  be good to see him in the bullpen in September (but maybe bad if it means we’re failing or unhealthy to make room).
    meh.

  • vinoa

    Jordan29 I dunno, it seems like a pretty balanced discussion. I noticed their use of advanced stats for making their case so it’s definitely not an open and shut one.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    dlb Mad this must be baseball talk?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    vinoa Jordan29 I love the use of advanced stats being regurgitated so freely now.

    It is completely laughable.
