Now might be the time to pick the carcass of the failed Yotes. I'm sure not everyone will want to move to Utah.

They seem to really. like Jack mcbain, but I'd love to throw some offers out there. Maybe Robertson+late-ish pick?


1.) 14 Apr 2024 02:08:24
I'm not sure if there will be a carcass. I would assume Utah will want to be good, especially since the League is expected to buy the team for $1B.

2.) 14 Apr 2024 03:06:07
@RLF doesn't mean every player wants yo move to Utah. It's unlike any other place in NA in a lot of ways, ans they signed up for Arizona.

Good time to at least try.

3.) 14 Apr 2024 05:44:47
It is the management who determine the trades not the players.

4.) 14 Apr 2024 13:17:07
LL. Yes, but as waterbuffalo said, the players under team control don't get to decide, unless you are predicting a revolt from the players. I doubt players wanted to go from Atlanta to Winnipeg either. Does Robertson+ get McBain? Maybe. But I don't think it will be because all the players demand to get out of playing in Utah.

5.) 15 Apr 2024 13:37:06
The fact that Arizona has to win the land auction, for their new arena and the league already has Utah as a contingency plan. Kinda stinks of some shady dealings. Someone just has to outbit Yates ownership (the league and or Utah owners) .

6.) 15 Apr 2024 19:22:33
Leafs67. It is weird isn't it.

7.) 15 Apr 2024 22:42:08
@L67 the best part is the league taking 200m for no reason.

8.) 16 Apr 2024 14:26:02
Vegas paid 500M, Seattle 650M.
Utah 700+M?
Outbit the Yotes, then flip the property. Almost seems to easy lol.

9.) 16 Apr 2024 21:53:50
@L67 pretty sure Utah is paying 1.2b.

10.) 17 Apr 2024 11:29:37
Wow! So is the fee just gonna continue to double?

11.) 17 Apr 2024 21:16:26
Yeah, franchise values are skyrocketing league wide. If you pay 1.2b to acquire the Yotes, what is a real team worth?

12.) 18 Apr 2024 13:52:17
I believe the $1.2B is for lock stack and barrel. Players, management, equipment etc. The fees paid by Vegas and Seattle were just for the franchise fees. How does that all equate value wise? I have no idea.

13.) 18 Apr 2024 14:57:55
@RLF they're calling this an "expansion" though, so I'm assuming it's a way of pulling some shady moves to make more money.

14.) 18 Apr 2024 16:24:20
LL. IIRC, there is something in their about the current Yotes ownership has 5 years to be able to bring a team back to Arizona or something like that. New arena site, Shovels in the ground on a new arena, finances in order etc have to all be done in 5 years. It is a strange situation. It's like the League is giving the owner $1B and 5 years to get it done and then charging the Utah group $1.2B to have the franchise, but Arizona ownership has 5 years to show they can have a franchise and likely the League then charges them a franchise fee. I don't know. It's confusing.

15.) 18 Apr 2024 19:15:37
@RLF that's the odd part. It's like a billion dollar loan, as he also has to spend 1B if he wants the team.



29 Mar 2024 21:37:35
Good signing for Benoit and the team. He almost doubles his salary going forward, gets a 3 year deal, and still has something to play for as he will expire in his late 20s.

Tre getting him at a bottom pairing number for 3 years is also stellar.

It brought me back to the Justin Holl and Pierre Engvall signings seeing this recently. Middle 6 and bottom pairing players Dubas signed vs McCann and Benoit for Tre. I have to look at this as almost exactly the same situation, except Tre did a better job.


1.) 30 Mar 2024 02:50:15
McMann not McCann.
Dubas left McCann unprotected in the expansion draft in order to protect Justin Holl.

2.) 30 Mar 2024 03:17:54
@WB yes, I know the name, I watch him quite a lot lol.

Auto-coerect always changes it, and I figured everyone (other than you apparently), understood.

3.) 30 Mar 2024 04:49:07
It is great signing we see how many more they sign b4 end of season

Robertson 2 years $1.35 mil per
Liljegren 3 years x $3 million per
Domi 3 years x $2.5 million per
Bertuzzi 4 years $3.5 million per
Jones 2 years $1.35 million per

2 players that don need a lot of high talent around them and can drive lines Matthews and Marner.

4.) 30 Mar 2024 12:21:13
Sorry I don't want lily or Robertson back I hope they are in a pkg for a legit top 4 d man.

5.) 30 Mar 2024 13:43:00
All his signings with term are big and physical and play a heavy style of game. Not talking about Willy obviously. I mean Reaves, Benoit, McMann and yes, even Kampf. He will evaluate Boosh and Edmundson and then if he likes them, I wouldn't be surprised if he can get them at the right number to try and extend them. Benoit and Boosh as a 3rd pair tendem wouldn't upset me at all. Rielly and McCabe as the top pair. Then have to fill in the middle.

Johnny. What I have been saying for a while as well. I just don't see Liljegren do anything well enough to compensate for his lack of physical prowess defensively. Maybe with the right partner? I am definitely not sold on him being more than a #5.

Mackin. I see Robertson and Jones as the only realistic numbers you have there.

6.) 30 Mar 2024 18:03:16
I see lily as nothing more than a 3rd pairing guy as well and he's soft.

7.) 31 Mar 2024 17:54:34
Come on David, I told you to pick a new favourite.
Robertson and Llyigren will be traded at the draft to San Jose and Anaheim for picks.

Bertuzzi I would resign but only at $3.5
Domi will be not be resigned, and Jones will be replaced with Talbot.

Get on the Barbolini train David as Robertson is leaving.



01 Mar 2024 05:06:07
Great trade.

3rd and late pick for Boosh at 675k?

Well played tree.


1.) 01 Mar 2024 11:30:51
Indeed Trev got it right this time. Still has cap space plus with Giordano most likely going on LTIR just got back all that cap space plus more. We’ll done ??.

2.) 01 Mar 2024 11:42:52
I’m down on this trade yes they didn’t give up much but boosh isn’t the difference maker they need I hope he targets a decent forward.

3.) 01 Mar 2024 12:34:43
Good trade. When you can get a physical 3rd pair D for a 3rd and 6th and for $675K, how can someone complain.

4.) 01 Mar 2024 12:37:54
Not a flashy trade, but and absolutely Solid trade! That plus Woll back in net. Things are starting to look up.



18 Jan 2024 15:55:23
Everyone is screaming for Keefe to be fired because that will fix these issues. Although I agree, I think you need to point out how bad this team is on the back end and depth.

JT 24g 64 pts
Marner 36g 94 pts
Mathews 68g 100 pts
Willy 42g 104 pts

That's the pace the big 4 are on. If wr look around the league at what 11 million dollars gets you on other teams, this just isn't it. Mathews is earning his money, Willy was until his contract was signed now he's fallen off a cliff, JT is playing like a 3C not a 1B, and Willy once again will not hit 100pts for that money.

What is another coach going to do here exactly? Make JT 5 years younger and Marner into a better player? Marner is a good player, but he isn't elite imo.

Looking at the D is even worse. Rielly is alone on an island. He's the only one producing from the back end at all, and Gio/ Brodie are almost unplayable. McCabe is what he is, but shouldn't be in there for 20+ minutes and Benoit is a fantastic 5-6 right now, but he isn't winning the Norris anytime soon.

What does another coach do here? I really don't see any difference.

Fire Keefe, but don't expect a cup with this roster no matter who they hire.


1.) 18 Jan 2024 16:35:40
The coach creates and implements systems. Their D zone coverage and penalty killing are brutal. So the players are either lousy or they’re not listening to the coaches, or both. Old saying is you can’t fire all the players so coach is first to go. I’d trade marner in a heartbeat but he won’t likely waive. I’d even let him walk into UFA when the time comes, just to recoup the cap space. You sign two very good players for the same money he’d want.

Keefe has to go, fair or not. Berube is probably the best option. Maybe Gallant.

2.) 18 Jan 2024 16:35:49
The blue line is the problem after Reilly, Benoit has been great for a bottom pairing guy. Bottom 6 guys have no identity and Samsonov pissed away a lot of points for the team. They'd be comfortably be in a playoff spot the trade deadline can't fix all the holes this team has and I'd rather they didn't trade away picks and prospects for rentals. Thus current team will be steamrolled in the 1st round.

3.) 18 Jan 2024 16:45:10
I think they need a coach that has a set off on him. Someone that’s willing to hold everyone accountable, equally. Shouldn’t matter the name on the jersey or how much you make. Right now, it doesn’t feel that way.

4.) 18 Jan 2024 17:15:55
I will rinse and repeat what I have said for probably going on two months. This isn't the year to go for it. We are looking at 1-2 years down the road we may have the team in place to go for it. I am still for firing Keefe. Bring in a guy with experience that can start to use this year to mold the team into how he wants it, Has to be a guy who likes heavy team play because we know that's what Tree would like to build.

5.) 18 Jan 2024 17:25:58
@CKPS I agree Keefe isn't the man for the job, I'm just pointing out that all the hate on Keefe is a bit unjustified.

I don't see a coach in the world that makes this D-corps look like anything more than it is. After Mo you have nothing.

After the big 4, they have nothing. JT isn't what he once was. His 5 on 5 numbers have been steadily declining and now he's in pace for 60 points.

What difference does a coach make?

6.) 18 Jan 2024 18:19:04
They need some more two way players and more rhd they have 3-4 forwards who are considered defensive players their pk sucks their pp isn’t much better there is some bright spots on this roster but it’s the same every year the blueline is sub par or below average and if the big guys aren’t producing they are not winning but they also take up all the ice time.

7.) 19 Jan 2024 01:46:04
If Keefe is fired then Treliving should be fired as well.
He’s the one who gave Keefe, Klingberg, Reaves, Bertuzzi, Domi, overpaid Kampf and allowed Schenn and Gustafsson to walk.
Treliving is the brilliant strategist who trade Lafferty for a 5th round pick instead of waiving Reaves.
Treliving’s waste of $20M in cap space condemned Keefe!
Treliving has had 8 months on the job and look at the state of the Leafs.

8.) 19 Jan 2024 12:45:48

So letting two 3rd pair D-men, both in their 30's walk, is a massive issue? Have you not lobbied constantly that the Leafs need to stop signing older guys?

Treliving has made mistakes. Every GM does. He has also made some shrewd signings and moves. Let's say he signed Schenn and Gustafsson like you wanted. That means no Benoit who is basically Schenn but a lot younger and cheaper. Wouldn't Gustafsson have taken our "2nd best defenceman" Liljegren's spot. That is also $3.6M on two 30+ year old D-men. You say Leafs shouldn't go after Tanev because he is 34, but wanted Tree to re-sign Schenn, who is 34.

all of this is revisionist history. You look at guys having good seasons elsewhere and say Tree should have done this or that and since he didn't, he has a list of blunders.

Most that are saying fire Keefe, said the same thing before Treliving got here, so it isn't based off of this year alone.

9.) 19 Jan 2024 15:11:27
But I think WB has a point. Tre did mess up a lot of the pick ups and never improved the D. I don’t think Keefe is the right coach here but I do think Tre hand cuffed him with a worse D than last year and Brodie is pretty much unusable. Keefe was set up to fail this year but he should have adjusted to a more defensive style and running two lines into the ground is not the answer. I really believe Bert and Domi along with a few others would thrive under a new coach. Bert does not like Keefe, he is probably sick of getting yelled at for what Nylander does every shift.

10.) 19 Jan 2024 17:56:08
Clarky. I admitted Tree made mistakes, but not re-signing Schenn for 3X$2.75M and not re-signing Gustavsson was not one of the mistakes.

Klingberg was also signed for the D, but is injured. In the end, no harm no foul as he is out for the season. People seem to forget Klingberg was supposed to be part of it. Brodie was supposed to be better than he has been. Liljegren was supposed to take another step, he hasn't. This is not actually playing like the the D-core that it was envisioned to be.

Let's also not forget the he wasn't allowed to participate in the draft, which also means hard to make a deal at the draft, even if he wanted to, when you can't be there.

He got Matthews to sign for a modest raise, which is looking like a steal. That never gets talked about.

All the good signings he made never gets talked about. Benoit, Lagesson, Jones, Gregor.

He took Sammy to arbitration instead of giving into him for around $5N with term. Waterbuffalo wanted Samsonov re-signed and said why go after Hellebuyck when we have Samsonov.

Let's also not forget he had very little cap space and lots of holes to fill with no assets to use to get good players. Free agency was the only way.

I keep hearing how he should have got his guy or that because people see these guys doing well on other teams and making less than say Bertuzzi. No one knows if they even wanted to come here or would have done well here. It's all speculation.

That is why I said it's revisionist history. Should have because I now see what these other guys are doing and it seems better than what we have.

Dubas was here for years, so I feel he is fair to criticize. Tree has been here a few months under almost impossible circumstances and people want a miracle Stanley Cup contender built. I said in the off-season, I have no idea how we can build a good team with such little cap space and so few assets. People had unrealistic expectations is the problem. That and people flip flopping from what they said in the past and now trying to claim they know better when they said the opposite in the past.

11.) 19 Jan 2024 19:01:00
@RLF yes he made some good minor decisions but anything with any substance not so well. Taking Sammy to arbitration and $100,000 signing bonus to Jones are his highlights (Benoit as well but lucky) . We needed a #1 RHD and got Klingberg. Yes he got injured but Tre did nothing since. Year is now a waste. Willy signing represents everything the True Leaf fans didn’t want to happen. Over signing wingers with no heart and still don’t have depth or D.



05 Dec 2023 22:54:56
Tor Robertson

Oilers Broberg

Two struggling prospects, roughly the same age and salary. Both need a change.


1.) 06 Dec 2023 02:49:19
I like it!

2.) 06 Dec 2023 11:36:48
Leafs might need to add a bit, but I like the thought.

3.) 06 Dec 2023 14:30:20
I don't think the leafs ass, broberg was picked higher but Robertson is still with the big club.

4.) 06 Dec 2023 15:41:07
I figured there would be a Broberg prop pretty quick after he asked for a trade. Edmonton can't really take on any cap, so cap in/ out is necessary. I would say value of the prop is reasonable. Do they want a possible young scorer in return?

What about something like Samsonov for Foegele and Broberg?

5.) 06 Dec 2023 17:22:44
@RLF that would be even better for me.

21 Apr 2024 02:49:12
Great game from Mathews and MO. Liked what they both brought.

Marner was exactly what I expected.

4th line looked great. Loved the energy.


1.) 21 Apr 2024 12:39:45
4L was fine but Reaves cost the first goal. He made a bad decision and left his position to make a hit causing a 2-on-1.

I left with 2 minutes remaining in 2nd - couldn’t stomach the play.

At that time Matthews and MO were non-factors IMO but maybe they picked it up in the 3rd.

Goaltending and special teams were the difference.

The Bruins execute extremely well and are very disciplined. They play the game right and play it smart.

Need Nylander and McMann back for game2. Need a split for sure.

2.) 21 Apr 2024 12:45:22
I thought the team looked pretty good. Effort was good. Physicality good. They lost because of bad penalties and we are still seeing lost confidence Sammy, which is what I was afraid of. He is over playing his reads and can't find pucks through traffic. Really missed Willy and McMann.

3.) 21 Apr 2024 16:13:43
Mo looks slow like gio slow if the leafs want to do anything in this series that have to put domi at centre our bottom six is t good enough and for the love of god someone move a body infront of the net.



20 Apr 2024 23:47:21
What's up with Willy? I don't remember him ever getting hurt.


1.) 21 Apr 2024 16:14:36
I find it odd that discomfort is keeping him out this being after the keefe comments of nylander being checked out for weeks.

2.) 21 Apr 2024 20:14:52
@Goat that's my thing as well. When's the last time Qillt was even injured?

3.) 22 Apr 2024 12:56:16
I remember him getting hit around the redline last game against the boards and Willy was angry. You could tell he yelled at the guy. I think that is when whatever it is happened.



19 Apr 2024 02:58:40
So, who do we all think starts? 3 goalies struggling, but not sure any of them have been given a chance in hell.

If I'm Keefe, I go with Sammy. Obviously, if any problems occur, you go with Woll second game.

Not sure any goalie steals games when you play like that in front of them though.


1.) 19 Apr 2024 04:18:14
IMO LL, I really don’t think it matters who starts in net. It matters how we play as a 5 man defensive unit. Not giving up quality chances. I think both of these guys should give us a chance to win as long as they aren’t overloaded with quality chances. Leafs are gonna have to learn how to win 2-1 or 3-2.

2.) 19 Apr 2024 04:27:02
@Clarky completely agree, but I will also pose the question as;

Game 7 against the Bruins, you need a goalie to steal you a game, who is it?

We all know every cup winner has at least one stolen game they shouldn't have won.

If I'm being honest, I don't think that first series win was legit in a lot of ways. Vassy looked like Martin Jones letting floaters in. Then everyone says "Bob goalies them", well, that's life.

3.) 19 Apr 2024 12:28:07
If it's me, I start Woll. I like his demeanor in the net more. He doesn't hang his head. He is quieter in the crease. Sammy when he is on, he's good. I am not sure where his head is at and in a 7 game series, it's not like you can afford to throw a game away to find out. I think Woll is mentally tougher.

4.) 19 Apr 2024 12:57:27
I think Sammy starts game 1 and you make adjustments from there. Game 7 would depend on how the rest of the series went.

5.) 19 Apr 2024 14:04:47
Leafs lost 4 season games to Boston by a combined 15-7 score.

Two games went to a shootout.

Leafs outshot and outhit the Bruins.

Woll played 3 games and Samsonov only 1; a 3-2 SO loss.

It’s a very hard decision to make, for sure.

Woll might be mentally tougher; IDK.

I’d probably choose Samsonov (by a very small margin) and HOPE like hell the Leafs play at their best, something not seen in their last four.

I believe that not worrying about getting Matthews his 70th will make a big difference.

6.) 19 Apr 2024 15:08:09
I should have said that I think Sammy starts, as that was the question, but I would start Woll.

7.) 19 Apr 2024 15:58:22
100% agreed that Sammy starts.
I believe that Woll has a good future ahead of him, but he hasn't played enough this year. He hasn't really been that good after coming back from that high ankle sprain injury, which is a big injury for a goalie.

What do you guys think the chances of Murray making a surprise appearance?

8.) 19 Apr 2024 16:12:58
@Tags pretty low. All 3 goalies would have to be brutal, but I'd they're all really bad they won't be in the playoffs long enough.

9.) 19 Apr 2024 17:18:50
Tags. The two games in the Marlies with a 3.92 GAA and .852sv% is not really boding well for Murray to make an appearance with the Leafs.

10.) 19 Apr 2024 19:00:23
I think Jones would start before Murray.

11.) 19 Apr 2024 19:43:53
Like many here, I think (and hope for cap reasons) that Woll is our goalie of the future.

I believe had his final two starts been solid he would be game1 starter but it appears, based on media reports, that Samsonov gets the net.

If he falters early it will be interesting to see how quickly Keefe makes the change. I don’t have the number off the top of my head but I remember twice Woll came to our rescue.

If this happens it will be Woll until he falters.

Clearly goaltending is the number one question (not the only one) that will dictate how far the Leafs go.



18 Apr 2024 01:24:20
Anyone else really hate watching these last two games? I stopped watching in the second period of both.

They might as well have had a top line of Mathews, Marner, Willy, with JT on defence and Bert on the other side, pulled the goalie, and just prayed Mathews scores.


1.) 18 Apr 2024 13:47:56
Agreed that it was frustrating. I left early as well.

Only thing important to the team was getting Matthews his 70th.

Can’t wait for the new season to start.

Let’s change the results!

2.) 18 Apr 2024 13:49:19
The hope is that they know how to play and they can do that starting Saturday. If there is no buy in to strong defence by the team, I can't imagine Keefe stays.

3.) 18 Apr 2024 14:15:44
Keefe does not know how to teach defence in our own end and it’s gonna be our Achilles heel. Wingers are always caught too low or on the wrong side. I feel bad for Bert and Knies trying to figure out what side to play in our own end because Mitch and Willy are down low and on both sides. It’s like tyke hockey, they just chase the puck around wherever it goes. Keefe has never addressed this but Marner puts everyone on his team out of position in his own end because he is a puck chaser. Turnovers and wingers getting caught too low in our end will cost us the series.
IMO if we are out first round again; give your kisses and hugs to Keefe and Marner because they are gone/ traded.

4.) 18 Apr 2024 15:07:31
Ckarky. I agree with alot of that. That's his collapse defence with pressure the puck. Many puck chase and puck watch. Whatever happened to identify your man. Or check over your shoulder. Even on backchecks on rushes the backchecker puck chases over identifying his man and creating a 3 on 3 (except McMann, he goes to the guy he should) . If they'll did like McMann the dmen wouldn't have to try and re-identify which guy is theirs now. Instead, 2 on 1's get created as the backchecker and dman have the same guy. Like you said, it's not rocket science, they are obviously cheating for hopeful offence if you can turn it over and head the other way.

5.) 18 Apr 2024 16:23:53
@Well Said Clarky. It's definitely Keefe's system. I'm not sure I'm even opposed to pressuring the puck carrier in a collapse system, it just doesn't work with this D corps imo. You need extremely high iq D on all pairs, who are also mobile to a point in order to quickly identify their man and close any gap created. That's why we see D out of position so often.

@RLF Your man crush on McCann is rubbing off on everyone lol. He's been amazing at both ends. Really liked his effort on the backcheck and even his presence in breaking up the cycle once it starts at times.

6.) 18 Apr 2024 16:32:51
Where do you even start they lose 4 straight to end the year averaged like 5 goals against non of the goalies played well we already know there will be three or four guys playing who are not healthy (domi jarnkrok edmudson and mcmann ) and the lineup just seems like a mess. Having holmberg as your 3C shouldn’t be an option I’ve said move domi back to centre but seeing how Matthews and marner and Bert played I wouldn’t run that line so now what do they do just a mess all around.

7.) 18 Apr 2024 17:25:45
LL. I'm just glad he is getting a chance. 2-3 years of me touting the guy and he finally got his chance and made me look like I actually knew what I was talking about (phew. lol) . I guess McMann was my Bennett for this year. lol.



17 Apr 2024 05:55:45
Guess it's Boston. Didn't see that coming.

Very similar teams at any rate. Big, physical, have those rats to get under guys' skin, makes no difference to me.

Going to be a tough series, but man wouldn't it feel good to finally slay the dragon?


1.) 17 Apr 2024 13:44:49
I honestly don't care who they play. The first round isn't the goal, so they have to beat good teams whether it's at the start or later on in the playoffs.

Go get em boys!

2.) 17 Apr 2024 14:08:59
Last night it looked like the leafs were just trying to get outta there healthy missed the second period but their play of late has slipped hopefully it’s just end of the season games don’t matter kinda stuff.

3.) 17 Apr 2024 14:59:55
These last few games are just about escaping healthy and hopefully Matthews getting #70.
Playoffs is going to be tough regardless who we were to play and I really didn't care who we matched up against.
Leafs have to bring it, and the Core needs to lead the way.
I still hate Boston more than any other team, so as you said LL, a chance to slay the dragon or slay our demons.


4.) 18 Apr 2024 00:38:06
Agree Tags, need to stay healthy.

Every Leaf player wants to help Matthews get #70 and it’s hurting the team.

The only things I hate more than Boston is Marchand and Kucherov.

Both are great players and sly dirty.

@WB I meant to say, with that term. I believe they both take 5m as well, but want 7 years.

I liked Bert and Domi, and thought Jarnkrok was ok. What's the issue with them?

@WB you think Roy and Walker accept 5m as a last payday before they're mid 30s? I don't.

@RLF that's the odd part. It's like a billion dollar loan, as he also has to spend 1B if he wants the team.

@RLF they're calling this an "expansion" though, so I'm assuming it's a way of pulling some shady moves to make more money.

@Clarky I agree that some of those Sammy wasn't to blame. Lilly looked like his controller disconnected on the first goal, Edmonson was brought in to clear net front, but failed, on and on.

The biggest issue coming from me with Sammy, is you need saves sometimes. Yes, he can't stop them all with that in front of him, but he could have gotten one or two just to keep it close.

It's always the scoring that drops off. It's never letting in goals. Say Sammy only let's in two. Great game. Still a loss.

@Goat that's my thing as well. When's the last time Qillt was even injured?

Might be a cop out, but I think it's Mathews.

If I'm also naming a D, then Brodie. He finally gets it together for the playoffs.

@Tags pretty low. All 3 goalies would have to be brutal, but I'd they're all really bad they won't be in the playoffs long enough.

@Clarky completely agree, but I will also pose the question as;

Game 7 against the Bruins, you need a goalie to steal you a game, who is it?

We all know every cup winner has at least one stolen game they shouldn't have won.

If I'm being honest, I don't think that first series win was legit in a lot of ways. Vassy looked like Martin Jones letting floaters in. Then everyone says "Bob goalies them", well, that's life.
