Tor: lily, Robertson
But: jokiharju, krebs


1.) 01 Apr 2024 01:39:10
Leaf's probably draft a defencemen. With 1 st this yeas. The team have many forwards that are breaking into top 9

Knies McMann Robertson Holmberg Cowan Minten

Liljegren maxium next contract is 3 million over 4 years that's what I would offer

That's a good number for the leafs and considering Liljegren is right sided I wouldn't move him

End of the road


In the mix next season


Locks next season


Ufa targets

Pesce 4 years 5 million
Skjei 4 years 5 million.

2.) 01 Apr 2024 05:36:26
Pesce, at 29 years of age, is reportedly looking for that final, big contract with term 6 - 7 year at $6.5M - $7M.

I think Leafs might be better off financially to look at Matt Roy and/ or Sean Walker.



21 Mar 2024 18:23:20
Toronto lines fully healthy

Domi Matthews Marner
Robertson Tavares jarnkrok
Knies Kampf nylander
Mcmann dewar Reeves.
Gregor holmberg

Reilly McCabe
Brodie lily
Edmundson Benoit


1.) 21 Mar 2024 19:29:35
You left out Bertuzzi. And there is no chance Keefe will have Robertson in the playoff line up.

I think Keefe does:

Dewar-Kampf-Reaves/ Holmberg
Robertson & Gregor extras

Edmundson Liljegren
Benoit & Timmins extras.

2.) 21 Mar 2024 19:44:30
You're sitting Boosh?

3.) 21 Mar 2024 19:55:49
I'd take Boosh of Brodie or Lilly right now.

4.) 21 Mar 2024 21:53:54
This is my take on what the lines should be for now and when Marner comes back;

Bertuzzi Papi Domi
Knies JT Nylander
McMann Holmberg Marner
Dewar/ Jarnkrok Kampf Reaves

Rielly Boosh
McCabe Benoit
Eddy Lily


5.) 21 Mar 2024 23:34:29
I did forget bert. I've not hated Robertson game. We've been asking him to change his play style and hes been showing commitment to trying to do that.

6.) 22 Mar 2024 00:32:53
Kampf centering Nylander and Knies is a complete waste of Nylander’s and Knies’s talent.
Kampf is barely a 4th line center let alone a 3rd line center.

7.) 22 Mar 2024 02:23:49
@WB how is he barely a 4C? What exactly makes him an AHL player to you?

8.) 22 Mar 2024 14:06:00
LL. He is easily a 4C. I have said with the right line mates, some big guys that can skate and forecheck (Knies and McMann for instance), that he could be a 3C on a line like that. I know I am on an island thinking that, but wouldn't be the first times I have been on an island in my evaluations.

9.) 22 Mar 2024 14:49:44
@RLF no, I agree he is an excellent 4C and with the right line mates, a good 3C.

WB always just throws out these outlandish statements then goes quiet. I'd like to know why he isn't even a 4C.

10.) 22 Mar 2024 17:40:02
@LL. Well, I guess RLF island has another inhabitant afterall. LOL.

11.) 23 Mar 2024 11:24:00
I’m okay with Kampf as a 4C but at $2.4 it’s too much so I’d look for a lower paid 4C with some term and upside.

Kampf has been better lately though I’d like to see more physicality.

I agree with Clarky in sitting Brodie.



14 Mar 2024 17:02:02
So I don't want the comment on if it's likely or not, I want to know would you do it and would cbj do it.

Tor: Matthews

Cbj: fantilli, jirchek, severson, laine, texier


1.) 14 Mar 2024 23:56:26
I don't think so. I don't really want Severson at that cap hit (although I like him), Laine can just stay where he is, and although I like Texier, he isn't a needle mover.

This would be really close for me though. Especially with Marner and JT about to be up. You could almost entirely rebuild the team.

2.) 15 Mar 2024 01:16:33
Though I really wouldn’t want Laine on my team at all and do not feel comfortable with Severson, I do understand the need for salary matching.

Close but probably not.

3.) 16 Mar 2024 13:37:57
This is a tough one. I am high on Fantilli, but I don't want Laine and Fantilli will never score like Matthews. Tough one for both teams as well. It's a good prop, but Toronto would be picking up two guys that have been in the player assistance program. If Laine is set to be moved to a different team, I might do it. As is, pass.

4.) 16 Mar 2024 14:30:47
I had debated switching laine for gaudreau, seemed a touch heavy from CBJ.

5.) 17 Mar 2024 00:31:38
@Randy Johnny hockey is a hrd no from me. Overpaid by a large margin at his age.

6.) 18 Mar 2024 17:36:50
The leafs would turn into a version of what the blue jackets are higher end wingers and no top centre.

7.) 19 Mar 2024 18:56:47
Hard pass from Leafs. And Matthews would never waive to play in Columbus.



18 Feb 2024 23:43:34
Tor: Brodie lily, bertuzzi, 2024 1st, minten, niemela

Ana: gudas, bush, vatrano

Leaf lineup

Knies Matthews Marner
Vatrano Tavares mcmann
Robertson domi nylander
Jarnkrok Kampf Gregor

Reilly gudas
McCabe Benoit
Gio bush


1.) 19 Feb 2024 01:35:22
F gudas guys a little pansy.

2.) 19 Feb 2024 02:57:55
Is this a serious proposal?

Gudas already turned down the Leafs.
Lyubushkin is a 3rd pairing defender.
A 1st, Minten and Niemala for Vatrano is bizarre.

3.) 19 Feb 2024 06:43:21
Huge overpay by the Leafs.



16 Feb 2024 20:39:57
Tor: Robertson, 2024 1st, samsonov, Brodie, minten.

Nsh, texier, saros, trenin


1.) 16 Feb 2024 22:47:20
That’s not even getting Sarros.

2.) 17 Feb 2024 19:39:29
Marner does it.

I can admit when I'm wrong, Jones did not play well, little help from the team but that's been ongoing last few weeks.

Boston in 6


1.) 18 Apr 2024 19:13:21
Not sure any of them have played well though lol. Goalies+team look like garbage.

2.) 18 Apr 2024 20:33:35
It was a team total non-effort.



14 Apr 2024 03:45:18
Also that 4th goal was awful but the other 4 samsonov gets 0 blame.




14 Apr 2024 03:43:53
So hear me out, they should've started Jones against Detroit. And he should start the playoffs. Neither of our top 2 are playing well, and they are who is being scouted right now by Florida staff.

They can get a book on Jones pretty easily but it isn't what they've been working on.


1.) 14 Apr 2024 04:22:19
Start Jones? I'm not sure about that one.

I'd give Woll the next two games and just pick who's been better.

Yes, Sammy had a pile of garbage in front of him, but sometimes you just need a save. That's the hug thing people seem to forget.

I cant think of the last goalie that won a cup, without stealing a game, making a key save he wasn't to blame for, that elevated play at the right time. If neither one can do that, then we'd better have the trap devils and Scotty Bowman if you want to win.

2.) 14 Apr 2024 14:29:49
I would still start Woll. Nothing has changed for me. Woll's game is much quieter and built more for playoff hockey. I think the players may be even more confident with him in net.



13 Apr 2024 21:46:22
So follow up to my Mr game 7 question.

? Someone else with pavelski

Follow up question does anyone think one of


Could be this type of player for Toronto. Does anyone see anyone else down the lineup that could throw the team on their back for a game 7 to essentially say we are winning this thing?




12 Apr 2024 19:12:36
Who would you guys take as modern day mr game 7? Can't be a super high end talent, but you want him on your team for a game 7.


1.) 12 Apr 2024 20:54:03
Zach Hyman. Not a superstar, but he always ups his game when needed.

2.) 12 Apr 2024 21:11:56
A lot won't like this but Matthew Tkachuk. After last year's playoffs how could you not, dudes a beast.
That being said I hope the Leafs destroy the Panthers.

3.) 12 Apr 2024 21:13:23
Sorry just read not a super high-end talent.

4.) 13 Apr 2024 13:26:04
Nick Paul, Tom Wilson or similar style of player. Big, physical with some skill.

5.) 13 Apr 2024 18:34:02
Tyler toffoli or joe pavelski are two that both resemble the player Williams was.

6.) 13 Apr 2024 21:43:11
I like the picks of Paul, pavelski and hyman. My pick is lehkonen.

Leafs life, I agree but he at least answers the phone to that proposal I think.

I like the skill of the player but he reminds me of cousins light.

I was very unimpressed with the trade which means it's probably realistic.

I think trotz would really want Marner, he likes his teams to be solid defensively, might be the only leaf winter that is.

You start woll game one? He's been awful since coming back. Completely different goalie.

10 Apr 2024 15:25:40
Right, it's disappointing. I do wonder if Marner at 50% retained gets the ball rolling on faber.

I'm okay with the bump back, but the winger on the far side should be going full tilt to back the D up. If they leave the pass open you rubbish him with speed, if they back up you do the bump back and let that guy hit the line with speed with the D already backed up to cover the other winger. Our biggest issue is only the guy receiving the pass is moving, so it's easy to defend.
