As much I would to see JT sign with us, I think he is using the Leafs(as he should) to get more cash.

Tavares, Auston and Naz down the middle would make the Leafs possibly one of the top teams up the middle.

However that doesn’t address the main deficiency on the roster which is defense IMO.

Or does it pave the way for a Marner or Nylander trade for a top blue liner?

Take it fwiw. A friend in Toronto swears he knows the Gf and she told him itís been Toronto and Isles and he is leaning towards Toronto.

Also I just happen to be in LA today. Maybe Iíll find him and talk to him myself.

You are now the 6th Leaf fan that has told me in the last 72hours that they know a guy who knows a guy who knows a girl, who swears JT's something something said he was coming here.

I want to believe it, its just getting comical that this has already gone up to 6 for me. lol

I donít want to get excited. Because I did for Stamkos and others as well. But JT is probably the best UFA in nhl history based on his age and ability.

Iím pretty sure he is signing with Isles at this point.

Do we think if he doesnít sign the extension by Saturday night we got this?

That JT Gf thing is growing like an urban legend.

Dreger reporting today that Johnny was extremely impressed with the Leafs presentation.

Canít be bad right?

I feel like Ive been duped a million times on these possible trades/signings, that turned out to be nothing.

BUT, Im still very curious to see how this unfolds. At the end of the day, I always feels like this comes down to the persons character/personality, and what they value. Hardly anyone knows what he really wants, and maybe he wants to come to Toronto and be the guy. I thought Stamkos would want that, and I was proven wrong. Will be interesting to see this unfold, though I will be a little dissapointed if again, this all proves to be nothing but an Islanders re-sign.

Tavares has ruled out the Islanders.

Leafs and Sharks.

According to Berger. Assuming itís all over the place now.

I still think he'll sign in Toronto and then the Leafs will trade Nylander, possibly to Vancouver for a package including Tanev.

If and itís a huge IF at this point. If Tavares signs and Bozak comes back like ya been reported he like to.

Bozak will be the 4 line center. It just seems like yesterday he was the number one center.

You guys are forgetting that we don't have a dummy running the organization anymore. If Tavares signs, Nylander will stay, and we'll roll out one of best forward groups in the league and figure it out/find value on Defense. This notion that we need to trade Nylander for a D man is absurd.
