Leafs 2018

    Let's be realistic. The Leafs are young, relatively inexperienced, and are still lacking in depth. That means a playoff spot is less than an expected "lock."

    Hopefully they get more to beef up the blue line, the kids continue to develop, and injuries are not an issue.

    Milestone's:
    - expansion draft protection list June 20th
    - draft June 23rd & 24th
    - free agency July 1st
    - training camp
    - season starts October

    steal one of ANH, CAR or MIN's young Dmen and get a veteran bottom pairing dman and another winger for the top 6 if they can and lastly a #2 goalie.

    The great thing is you're not looking for young difference makers but rather veterans to compliment IE Boyle.

    here's a few questions:

    Who would you rather have Bozak or Handzal?
    Would you sign Jumbo for 2 years to be your #2C
    Is Jagr useful to this team? he is truly ageless
    Resigning Boyle seems like a no brainer
    Would Brian Elliot consider coming in as a backup?

    No
    No
    Yes, depending on term
    Elliott can suck it

    With Nashville winning their series Leafs will draft 16th instead of 17th.

    i dont see why ppl think jvr is not worth anything in a trade that is just nuts.

    Grundstrom 3 points in 2 games, not bad.

    marlies tied 2-2 with the crunch in the playoffs.

    Who can we trade from there and get help on D

    jvr and something will be gone in the off season for the d they need. i bet lou already has a deal lined up for the moment the playoffs end. the expansion draft is really gonna handcuff a lot of teams. gonna be one of the more interesting off seasons ever.

    Looking at the hurricanes... Why do they want to take jvr on a 1 year?
     
  18. basketballjones

    they would obviously have a deal for a new contract for whoever he gets traded to
    plus he scores goals, something every team needs

    (Is Jagr useful to this team?)

    Fuck no why the hell would you want that old cunt on this team for, the guy is finished. John Tavares is a free agent after next season save the $$$$$ for him. He wanted to get drafted by the shit leafs of the past, I'm sure he would love to come to this team now. The timing would be perfect, 4th season into the build.

    and completely fuck their cap situation and force mathews into 2nd c and kadri 3rd?
    sounds great
     
  21. Musical Rush

    Musical Rush TRIBE Member

    You need 3 lines to win in the playoffs, who cares if Mathews is the 2nd line they all get their minutes, Kadri used to light it up as the 3rd center. Say Bye to Ballsack, JVR, and Polak there's $10 million in 3 players that this team can afford to lose.
     
  22. basketballjones

    they have 4 lines, they need d. they have a crap ton of forward prospects
    jvr will be gone this off season for d. bozak is great as a 3rd line center as mathews is 1st, kadri second. the leafs dont need tavares
     
  23. Musical Rush

    The leafs are going to need more than Kadri as a #2 . Most of the contenders have that 1 ..2 star punch.. Mathews and Kadri don't have the same ring to it. Mathews and Tavares sounds so much better. With Kadri as the number 3 which he is..Kadri is playing the roll of a shit disturber and will continue to take dumb penalties. You don't want that in your number 2 guy. They'll have Boyles and maybe Martin's money for the D help

    kadri got more points than tavares and disrupts the other teams best guys, i would rather kadri than tavares cause he hasnt done shit
     
  25. Musical Rush

    Musical Rush TRIBE Member

    Tavares finished with 5 more points than Kadri and played 5 less games. Kadri 95 PM..John 38 PM and a better faceoff guy avg 50%
