I am a right handed shot and aggressive, Leafs should draft me in the 7th round and I can be the top RHD for Rielly problem solved I will even sign for a case of beer for 3 years.

Hello everyone. I just signed up and this is my first post. I see a lot of talk about Marner and how him being on the 4th. line has slowed his points production. Remember why Babcock said he put Marner on the 4th.line for awhile is to work on his defensive game. On another topic. Lots of talk it seems about trading players. Why not trade Bozak? The only reason he was signed to the contract he was signed to was because he was on a line with Phil Kessel. Bozak is only good at faceoffs.

It is story time everyone. You can tell Tavares is not feeling it rn on the Island, he is going to walk into Snow's office and say he wants out or 77 million a season even though the cap is like 76, he don't care he wants it. Then he flies down to the 6ix and kisses the ground for a few minutes, goes right up to Shanny's office where him and Babs are discussing what colour ties to wear when they are lifting the cup this year, and Johnny T is like I wanna wear a blue and white one, so Shanny is like okay I will trade that bum Marincin and a tooth pick for your washed up ass, under one condition... you have to play with him *points at Leivo* and Johnny T is like I will literally sign for 1 mil a season if you get his ass off this roster. So it was, the Leafs placed Leivo on Long Term Dumbass Reserve for the rest of the year, and also traded JVR and a 7th for the Colorado Avalanche and a 4th. From there they go on to win 81 games straight and sweep every team in the playoffs by 36 goals a game, to have Auston Matthdayum lift the Stanley Cup. The end.

Its amazing how ineffective Matt Martin has become. Leivo on that line with Moore and Marner would be incredible. It would be a relentless forecheck executed with skill and speed. that's an effective 4th line, rather, too effective and skilled to be called a 4th line.

Why does Babcock continue to play Martin when everytime he is on the ice he is virtually ineffective? This team has shown it can take care of itself without him to baby sit... i think he becomes the odd man out this season

Martin is not making 2.5 mil a season for being "ineffective", he brings an amazing physical presence that helps wear down opponents and give the leafs toughness, his job is not to score points. Some leaf fan.

I have been doing some thinking the past few days about lines. Our top line of Hyman-Matthews-Nylander is all set, we do not need to touch that. Today it has been announced a line of JVR-Bozak-Brown, which could be a good 3rd line. For our second line I would like to see Marleau-Kadri-Marner that would be an uncontainable line of oure speed. And finally Martin-Moore-Komarov would solidify a solid 4th unit.

For this year we have probably a top 3 offence in the whole league, but next year if we get rid of JVR, Bozak, and Komarov, we can have Grundstrom/Soshnikov sub in for Komarov, Kapanen sub in for JVR, but we do not really have a replacement for Bozak. I feel like we should be looking for a young solid top 6 center prospect that could grow and have great chemistry with Marner the way Matthews and Nylander click, but what are some Ideas non internally? Thoughts?

calle janrkrok would be perfect.

Give marner his shot at centre between leivo and kapanen bam there's your second line resign komorov keep kadris line intact to be defensive. Liljegren waits til hainseys contract is done.

Leafs have solid prospects at LW, RW, LD, RD, G. There is still a hole though on Center, our top center prospects are Aaltonen, Brooks, and Gauthier who I think will all be really good 4th line centers, but not as good 3rd line centers. So after Bozak and Toronto part ways, who can fill his role? He is a big part of our team and will not be easy to replace, so who should we be looking at? Thoughts

Marleau slides over, can play all three forward positions, if the leafs trade one or both of JVR/ Bozak a center (prospect) will be coming back albeit one with a little more upside than Gauthier/ Brooks or Alts. The leafs wanted the Goat healthy in training camp so my guess is he comes up in Jan and stays with the team.

Alts is likely to be thrust into that 3C position next season. Alts has the speed to make a line dangerous, I could see him playing with Kappy who has speed to burn ( pretty good defensively and in the neutral zone) .

The 2018 draft will be interesting JESPERI KOTKANIEMI, LUNDESTRÖM, OSCAR BÄCK, Wassenius, Hållander are the European options at center that jump out but we will see how the year unfolds. My guess is they draft a couple more centers this year. And we'll have to wait and see if Vladislav Kara keeps his year going, I think he is a real prospect.

LD has the potential to get shifted around if they don't feel like giving gardiner a big raise, at 27 he is getting into JVR territory, although Gardiner is a much more important piece of the current roster, just some food for thought.

I believe William Nylander should be moved to center when Bozak leaves and Mitch Marner should play right wing with Auston Matthews. Nylander could play with his good buddy Kapanen and Grundstrum.

Hyman - Matthews - Marner
(Marleau) Grundstrum - Nylander - Kapanen
Komarov - Kadri - Brown
Martin - Moore (Gautier) - Leivo.

Sorry meant to say Kucherov is considered a star. Sometimes this autocorrect is annoying.
