Tavares and Marner can put up some sick numbers..

A center that actually can score, and a winger that is a playmaker..Great combination..The possibilites are endless.

Hmm. Lou and Dubas doing business.

Martin to Isles for a goalie I havenít heard of.

Salary dump I guess.

Lol a guy on Facebook was losing his mind saying losing JVR and Bozak and getting JT ruined the team and now they'll suck. And then they lose Matthews or Marner next.

It is hilarious to watch all the anti-leaf armchair GMs ramble on and on about how the Leafs have no defense and that they can't pay half their cap to 4 players and they are going to have to lose one of the big 3 and blah blah blah.

I can't wait until we have all 4 signed under contract and our defense turns out being way better than anyone (other than Dubas) expected just by getting rid of Polak and hopefully Zaitsev and promoting from within.

I think you're wrong about Zaitsev. We'll see.

One of those was Daniel last night on the ESPN feature table. Tsn ran with it as well online.

In the 3 hour meeting Dubas and pals during the pitch I’m sure included the plan and framework on how to keep team together going forward. Tavares wouldn’t sign if the plan to keep team together is not feasible imo.

I agree with you except the fact on Zaitsev. I think he had a bad year , had some injuries to deal with. I think he will be much better this year. Leafs are committed to him. Longest contract after JT

The question is Gardiner. Do we extend him? Do we trade him? Do we wait till July 1 2019 and assess the situation?

Trade Zaitsev while he still has value, extend Gardiner unless he wants too much money.

I am glad to see Dubas re-iterating what all the smart people are saying: We can keep everyone, and our Defense is better than you think.

How bad was our defence really? There were only 2 teams that gave up less goals in the East.

Yes we gave up a lot of shots but are we claiming Freddie was that good? I think he had a great year but I donít think our d is that bad.

I think Arp was implying that he already thinks our defense was good. I could be wrong though.

With all the EK talk there is a clip circulating where Matthews just completely undressed him and made him look like a Bantam dman as he scored.

It’s fun.
