Listen Paddy oh impatient one. Jake is a unique beast, that size and speed as witnessed on those two goals is a weapon that don't grow trees. He's going to back defenders off to avoid getting blown by from his rushes, that in itself is defensive asset. With Jake it's the intangibles, him vs Nylander and Ehlers is apples to oranges. As Greener says - players like Jake need to cultivate, like your Juolevis, they are not instant gratifiers. I am confident we are going to have a very good power forwar on our hands when he hits his stride

@PPPLeaves
The Leaves are staying as far from the strip as they could, to keep the kids in check.
And... Leaves lose 6-3 to Vegas today in a lackluster display.

This lends credence to the latest Leaves rumour:

My neighbour told me his cousin's stockbroker has a client who is well connected to the organization.

My neighbour says his cousin says the stockbroker says the client says

... that the forced shaving and hair-cutting was one thing

... but not being able to party a bit in Vegas was the last straw!

Says this is the most that Leaf players have been worked-up since Salutegate!

So yeah apparently they refuse to work hard for Louie the Lambanger.

Brave little guys, they're risking getting bent over Lou's knee...

Louie the Lambanger made me think of a player who hates public transit.

Mattews is 19, Marner is 20, Nylander just turned 21. Connor Brown is 23, Hyman 24, Rielly 23, Gardiner 26, Kadri 26, Andersen 28. What the hell are you smoking? Adding older vets in Marleau, Moore and Hainey (And these are supporting pieces who won't be around very long hardly makes them old.

As I pointed out a few days ago in this thread, Leaves are the 20th oldest team in the NHL.

And getting older every year, no more "rookies" or "prospects" for you to brag about...
UPDATE: Leaves are the 24th oldest team in the NHL.

There are only 7 teams older than the Leaves!

Hmmm I wonder if Tuna finds this upsetting, remember:

The Leaves have the best collection of wingers in the NHL. Bernier/Reimer are two very good 25 year-old goalies. They are statistically the youngest team in the NHl. Dion Phaneuf was fantastic tonight. A stud who shut down Crosby and Malkin like no one else has this year.

Yes. Contenders.

Nonis made some nice off season additions. The Bernier/Bolland trades were great.

Andersen fined for diving/embellishment in Maple Leaves game vs. Vegas

Goaltender assessed $2,000 for second citation this season.
New strategy when playing Leaves: Run Andersen and then scream "DIVE!!" to the refs. :mex:

2015 draft re-cap

Are we still drafting Marner and Bubbles favourite player - Dylan Strome ahead of Boeser?

Boston picks - Zorbil, Senyshyn, Debrusk with Barzal, Boeser, Connor, Chabot still on the board

Chiarelli trades Barzal and Beauvillier for Griffin Reinhart

Bubbles was at times angry at Benning for drafting Boeser instead of Konecny. Boeser 21 goals, Konecny 5 goals

Benning drafts Gaudette in the 5th round. Button places Gaudette - 40th best NHL affiliated prospect

Frederik Andersen with strong words after the #Leaves fourth straight loss: “We have to figure out who wants to play for the team.”
@reporterchris
https://twitter.com/markhmasters/status ... 1412776960

Andersen frustrated to face a 2-on-1 when Leaves were on PP?

“Yeah. I think a lot of guys on the bench too, pretty frustrated not being on the power play & seeing that kind of effort. I think we got to look each other in the eyes here and determine where we want to go from here.”
https://twitter.com/markhmasters/status ... 8793210880

Frederik Andersen: "I think it’s a lack of effort at certain points. It certainly can’t happen. We got to figure this out if we want to play any meaningful hockey later. We have to figure this out."
https://twitter.com/markhmasters/status ... 3828499456

Andersen: "We’re sitting pretty good. We got it pretty comfortable but there can’t be any reason for not playing the right way. We have to be ready when it comes to (post) all-star, bc it’s going to be tougher for everyone. Teams are trying to catch us & we can’t slide like this"
Trouble in paradise.

Leaves with just 2 regulation wins in their last 8 games, where's Tuna...

Like it or not they gotta be trying to make a move pretty quick.

JVR wants' 6x6.

Nylander requires a mega contract RFA extension all before next years MKUltra contract for Matthews and Marner if they don't deal him for help on defense like a in prime Torontonian Tanev who just so happens to play lights out with Reilly.

They are not making a move. JVR will not be kept, He is not worth that contract. I have said since day 1.
Nylander will get a similar deal that Pastrnak got in Boston. So? They have plenty of $ to sign all 3. The cap is going up 5-7 million and JVR is goners. He's getting slower and is too soft and one-dimensional to keep.
And whoops, Looks like there is a no need to get another Dman. Travis Dermott is the real deal. Great scouting Hunter!

A lot of round table discussion in Toronto recently about how it may best to scratch Marner to get him going. Meanwhile - Boeser
Or how about just give Marner more minutes and better linemates like Boeser gets? Did you guys check Marner's ice-time? Nah, it's easier to assume he's on the first line and getting all the minutes. That way you can blame his talent...

Hey Toon-a, it must sting Bigly time seeing Boeser getting drafted ahead of Marner on every 2015 re-draft. Did you watch the All-Star game? Watch out for our other 2015 draft pick - Adam Gaudette. He's a beaut.

Elias Pettersen says hi from way up top of the SHL scoring leader board. You see all the votes he's getting for the no. 1 ranked NHL team afffiliated prospect?

Wait... Dermott is an established NHL defenseman after 10 NHL games averaging 16 minutes per game??

Never change typical delusional koolaid-slurping Leaves fans!! :lol:

And yes Leaves... PLEASE... go into the playoffs with that pathetic dee group! :thumbs:
