How much of the Marlies success will translate to the Leafs in the coming years?

Looking at the roster, I see 2 current NHLers and what, 4-5 future NHLers?
I think these young players developing in a winning environment will really help us.

No, he's going to Vancouver for Tanev and a fifth, I heard Carol say so.

Thanks Carol.

Sign Tavares and save cap space for one of the top D next year. Fill the wings from within.

How does Martin - a guy that dressed for 3 games after Jan 22 and none in the playoffs - get a C?

What would it take to get a D?

An F?

Could have traded JVR and Liljegren for Hamonic

Honestly do not understand why Treliving wasted so many picks on Hamonic.
They were not in a position of needing defense with Fox, Andersson and Kylington in the system and Brodie, Hamilton, Giordano and to a lesser extent Stone on defense.

Why would you not use those picks with a mix of prospects for a younger goaltender who can actually goalie? Why not waste those picks plus prospects on a player like Drouin (who was available at the time)?
Baffling how short sighted individuals are in this industry.

I'm glad Lou rejected Garths proposal, however.


I would trade Gardiner to Anaheim for Manson straight up.

What is the going rate for a Gardiner-like defenseman?

Sign Tavares for $10 milly per year.

Tell Matthews that you are willing to give him the same amount for 8 years - and together, they can treat the NHL like their mistress for the foreseeable future.

Tell Marner that puts his peg at $8 million.

Then trade Nylander for Doughty.

Only thing left to do would be to plan the parade route.

The Leafs will not trade Gardiner, because the return would be far below what it would take to replace him.

I know this is a break in logic, but he's bad, but not bad enough to give up on. Leafs are better off continuing to try to teach him how to hockey.

It's a weird thing.

Two points -

1. If the "verbal" contract for OEL and Arizona are correct, is this a leak to the other teams on what it would take to sign him should he traded for? You know, avoiding tampering charges so a team trading for him knows what he will cost to re-sign.

2. If Arizona keeps OEL does this mean Gardiner becomes tradeable considering he would likely want 6 - 7 million on his next contract? I would guess he's a deadline trade more than an off season trade.

Doughty grew up dreaming of playing for the Leafs.

He's willing to sign here for less.
