VERY few trolls.

Feeling is good about Dubas.

Everything Dubas did was not ideal. We are still likely stuck with Ceci. We lost a 1st, Marner is not signed, Barrie and Muzzin are UFA next year, backup goalie is weak, and we are still right up against the cap when and if he does.

Considering the seriously bad situation Dubas was in, and how much he had to achieve, I think what he has done so far is remarkable. I don't see how he could have realistically done much better so far.

Very fair assessment. I agree with all the points you have raised both good and bad. I too felt they should have taken the hard line with Nylander to better set the tone for Matthews and Marner. But that time has come and gone and there's no use grousing over what could have been when you have to focus on what is to come. Taking all things into consideration I'm happy with the job KD has done thus far but there is still more to do.

I'm shocked the trolls haven't been around. I would have figured narratives around pending UFA D-men and more offer sheet nonsense would be at the forefront. I also would have guessed that Barrie has suddenly become a total defensive liability and Kadri anointed one of the top centres in the league after the trade.

I love that this thread has turned into leaf fans discussing their contending team and laughing at the complete embarassment the sens are, while the sens fans have almost completely fled the scene. But we know this thread pops up on their recent threads, and they see whats being said. They just can't reply.

Unless theyve abandoned the NHL altogether. Which you couldnt blame them as sens fans.

I will wait for Pierre to confirm that or not for the 2019-20 season.

I don't see the Leafs being any stronger than the Oilers of 5 years ago. Do they have anyone as good as Taylor Hall? Don't think so. How many years did it take the Islanders to make the playoffs after drafting Tavares?

Don't think it serves any purpose to raise expectations based on the performance of a group of young players that have not yet played a full NHL season.

We don't know if Marner is the next Patrick Kane. Perhaps he is Sam Gagner, another of those sure fire first round Oiler picks of the past. I like how Shanahan is managing the rebuild. I don't like the way expectations are being raised by some fans and media when there is absolutely no reason to believe the Leafs will be any stronger than what they were last year.

Did not think the poster I was responding to, could explain it ............ and neither can you.

leafs were the worst team in the NHL last season, and it's going to be a long long road back to even contending for a wildcard spot ........ perhaps 5 more years , and then another few seasons before they can even think about winning a first round series, and by that time they'll be in Cap problems and management will have to start another re-build .......... the typical leaf cycle that we've all seen over the past two decades.

- D0PPELGANGER


a couple more years and we'll be contending for the playoffs.

a few after that, we might win a round.
