    Default The Toronto Maple leafs

    Bounced the Preds last night and looked great doing it.

    Bout time we start giving these guys a little love. The team looks amazing, super young, poised for the Playoffs.... definitely a good time to be a Toronto Sports fan.

    Most of us just talk about them in the dedicated NHL thread when we do.

    Yes, we definitely need a dedicated space to discuss the Maple Queafs. There's aren't any outlets anywhere in this city/province/country.

    Leafs looking good this year. Lots of depth up front. Some NHL ready players like Kappanen and Levio won't be on the 20 man roster and then there are more guys behind them like Braco who are going to be pushing.
    Defense is better than last year but still short a guy who can just pound it from the point on the PP.
    Goaltending...touch wood...looks solid with Anderson....

    First time in a while there is justifiable confidence in Leafs nation.

    For any of the boys from the West.... Whats the deal with the new arena in Calgary ?

    Do the Flames ownership want the whole thing underwritten
    or
    Are the city and the Flames scrapping about the location of the new place
    or
    The term of the lease on the existing building getting in the way ?
    or
    ??

    Two exhibition losses.

    Crazily enough there doesn't appear to be a Fire Babcock thread....a trade Reilly for a bag of pucks thread as the league has passed him by....and a Is Auston Mathews Overated thread....

    I believe there's only about 4.5 posters on this forum that even watch or care about the Leafs in thew slightest lol

    What's all this Lupul business about? obviously he was drunk on Sunday night when he shared those comments on IG, but why would they be holding him back? I haven't read into it yet, just getting what I've heard on the radio.
    Two years away...

    One of the benefits of having more money than a Swiss bank is that the leafs can simply buy their way out of bad deals.

    Lupul is getting his 5m$ dollars a year on the IR and is being told its that or he will be bought out for less. It works for the leafs much like the Nathan Horton deal where both guys go on long term IR and simply get paid to not play and not take up an active roster spot. The leafs can work the nhls hard cap to their advantage so everyone is ok with this charade as they can Get cap relief to a percentage of how much is tied up in long term IR and free up room to play a young player. So Lupul gets to surfi in Cali or board somewhere in the Rockies and cash his cheques. No doubt he can play but the leafs don't want him or need him to.

    Edit: When your as flush with cash as the leafs ...this works. If Lupul was with another team he would be playing.
