Pretty sure Trotz and Lou have a better handle on this team than the rest of us. Just a hunch. But if I was a gambling man, Id put my money on them vs the naysayers on here. Like to read opinions, but getting a little stale on the negative sentiment.

Well of course they have a better handle on what they have than we do. We're just a bunch of yahoos spewing out opinions based on our perception. If you're getting tired of the negative sentiment you can always go back to the Leafs thread (currently found hiding under the name BD Galoff).
I won't speak for everyone, but most of us are in the "wait & see mode" also. A lot of us are excited to see what Trotz can do with guys like Nelson, Bailey, JHS, etc. To see what line combos he'll use. To see how the D shapes up, systems he'll use. The majority of the negativity is squarely at JT. Not for leaving (because, let's be honest, why would he stay), but of the way he went about it. Completely tied the organizations hands. Now, the organization gets some of that negativity too for mishandling the situation and giving JT complete control of it. I, as well as others, think Komorov wasn't a good signing. Too long, too much. We'll see how this shakes out though. Maybe these new contracts turn out to be a steal. We'll find out in April how they end up.

You want to get the leafs fans going? Photoshop Barzal’s face in instead of Tavares and get the rumors started.

I think little JT sleeping in sheets of Barzal would do it.

Having brought in defense-minded forwards Leo Komarov, Valtteri Filppula and Tom Kuhnhackl in free agency and fan favorites Matt Martin and Thomas Hickey back in a trade and a re-sign, it’s clear that Lamoriello and Trotz want to shore up the league’s worst defense and penalty kill.

EK has the Isles in talks for Patches. Do they not need another center or another dman?

So what would it take to get Patches? What's his contract status? Do we want him? I'd take him as long as it doesn't cost us a bunch of young guns. Couple picks and a prospect (MDC)?

Yeah we want him. Most likely take one of the kids we just drafted or Bellows plus a pick and or one of Toews or Wotherspoon. (frank) it go for it. Let's try to win and add some top 6 depth. In his last year he would have to agree to sign before trade.

He'll be 30 in November and is entering the final year of his deal with $4.5M cap hit and $5M in actual salary.

6x6 or 6x6.5 (frank) it I would do it I know you wouldn't

This is of course all nonsense because he isn't signing with us.

I know MDC wouldn't get anything in return. Just a joke. Bellows, a 2nd & a 3rd? Think it would need to be a first though.
