    If Voynov is reinstated, would you be interested?

    signed “Casual Leafs Fan”

    And yes I know LAK holds his rights. I mean via trade

    Prefer the status quote minus Polak?

    I am not seeing anything better out there right now (free agents) and I know this group won’t cut it. They have proven it twice. So why not give some young guys a chance? Isn’t that the point of a farm system?

    If you're hung up on player type, who on the Marlies is the type you're talking about? And if you're not hung up on type then I'm not sure what the problem is with the group exactly.

    This defense has proven twice that they can't win while playing with Tavares-Matthews-Kadri down the middle? When the fuck did we get ice cream? :wink:

    If Dermott improves and Zaitsev can straighten his game out, the status quo is much better no?

    Not to mention Rielly is probably only to get better from here, which is awesome.

    One guy I wouldn’t hate the Leafs going after on the blue line if Karlsson were to go to Dallas is Stephen Johns. RD, just re-signed to a pretty reasonable $2.35 mil AAV for 3 years, blocks a lot of shots, has good speed, doesn’t put up a lot of points but if he’s hoofing the puck down the ice to JT or Auston I’m sure that can change. Think he would address a lot of the Leafs' problems on the blue line.

    But I suppose he may be the RD Dallas keeps for those same reasons, so maybe Dubas tries to rescue Honka's career instead?

    Was previously the team's US scout, which I find interesting because the Leafs have only drafted 3 guys out of the US since 2015, the best of them probably being Jeremy Bracco which isn't saying much.

    Maybe he was high on a bunch of US guys they didn't take and he ended up being "right"?

    Sure. Auston Matthews doesn't wanna mess with a contract right now and it's all "Well, we'll see"

    Artemi Panari doesn't and it's OMFG BURN THE PLACE TO THE GROUND BECAUSE HE'S TOTALLY GETTING TRADED!!!11!!

    Thinking about writing a script that visits any Athletic article written by Portzline and then clicks out to TSN thousands of times, so when they look at their writers stats they will see he generates traffic, but NO ONE wants to pay.

    He must be doing something right - apparently he's been there since the Burke days and survived the Shanny scouting purge 3 years ago.

    Confused. Are you saying Leaf fans/media are more mature and sensible then their Columbus counterparts? :scratch:

    Clearly AM has already made up his mind to go home. Why else would OEL sign a long-term deal with the Yotes?

    The common belief around here right now is that his main beefs were 1) having to play with Hyman and 2) having to watch Bozak play 1st PP while he gets the 2nd unit, both of which have been rectified - Babcock made a point of saying Hyman would play with Tavares (who, by the way, is ours) and Bozak has been allowed to sign with St. Louis and convince Alex Pietrangelo how good of a market Toronto is to play in.

    /I don't recall slamming John Tavares?
