Lupul apologized and took his leafs cheaters comment down and said he would not be looking for a second physical from outside the organization.
A rumor came out that he apologized so fast because the Leafs have some crazy dirt on him that they would release.

New rumor and now has been confirmed is that the league itself will investigate into this themselves. Could be major major conaoqiences to the Leafs if he is deemed healthy to play.


1.) 22 Sep 2017 12:51:48
What could the leafs expose on him?

I think the whole situation is overblown.

I think he apologized quickly because he realized his comments were solely anger related. physicals don't just test a players 'healthiness' as related to injuries, they also test the players healthiness in terms of game shape.

Looking at Lupul, he looks like he enjoyed himself over the year and did not care about training/ routines. He lost his fitness basically. He may be free of his injury, but he also may have not been phyiscally fit/ adequate to play.

2.) 22 Sep 2017 15:56:12
That's not from me.
That's pretty much copy and pasted from Jon Shannon and Elliote Friedmans separate comments.
I myself think Lupul is healthy enough to play, and so do some of the other analyst who work in the NHL.

3.) 22 Sep 2017 22:21:37
He may have screwed the leafs and himself by being a thin skinned whiner. Any person, especially a celebrity is going to get negative comments when they put themselves out there on social media. Now by responding leafs could face penalties and if he's deemed healthy to play, his free rose of golfing and fishing in Cali for 5.25 mill is going to be 20 hour bus trips to Texas and Iowa with the marlies for the same wage.

Lol. McGuire says Tavares would choose Buffalo over Montreal if he becomes a free agent.


1.) 07 Sep 2017 18:02:59
McGuire is on interstellar levels of idiocracy.

2.) 07 Sep 2017 18:08:42
I said I wouldn't count out buffalo a while ago. Grew up close and has family connections there too. However with sabres having eichel and habs having daneault as their top actual center lol if he wants to be 'the guy' habs would be a great fit.

3.) 07 Sep 2017 18:18:11
Wow lol.

4.) 07 Sep 2017 19:23:48
Why would Buffalo need him? Eichel and OReilly. that's going to be about as good a 1, 2 center combi in the league. top 5.

5.) 07 Sep 2017 21:58:39
He could also be meaning that Tavares would rather play in the city on Buffalo than the city of Montreal. Very possibly true.

6.) 08 Sep 2017 13:36:22
Yup, that's what I think. Playing opportunity wise, habs. Personally and family wise. maybe buffalo.

7.) 09 Sep 2017 17:50:14
Sosa so you're telling me that an O'reilly-Tavares swap wouldn't make a HUGE difference? Tavares >>>>> Orielly. Eichel and O'Rielly.



05 Sep 2017 23:15:25
-Flames and Bennet and Red Wings and Athanasiou are both far apart with their teams for contract nagotiations. Both reportedly shopping KHL contracts to pressure clubs.

-Cody Franson apperently deciding between Oilers and Blackhawks.

-Jagr could be preparing to stay in the Czech and play for Klando and the Olympics.

-Pasternak and his agent keep using Drias $8.5M as a comparable and demanding more than Boston is offering (believed to be $6M per for 6 years) . This nagotiation is maybe getting ugly.

-Horvat and Canuks could be announcing a signing in the next few days.


1.) 06 Sep 2017 02:40:42
Franson would be nice addition oil, upgrade over Gryba for sure.

2.) 06 Sep 2017 03:00:36
I think Pasternak at 7.5 would be fair. Draisatl being able to either ride shotgun with mcdavid or center his own line gives him a bit of a premium. But 6 million just wouldn't cut it if I were pasta either. And Franson was a guy i hated to see leave the leafs but we got a first, a prospect and a 5th or something for him so they had to. I would be glad to bring him back on the cheap because our RD is weak. But oilers would be a good fit too.

3.) 06 Sep 2017 15:46:51
-Duchane also didn't attend first captains practice yesterday. Landeskog was a little disappointed. But it's looking like Duchane will be traded within the month here.

-Horvats deals looking to be around 5/ 6 years between around $5.5M per.

4.) 07 Sep 2017 02:40:03
Duchene was at a wedding, lots of players weren't there.



11 Aug 2017 22:52:53
Jets have reportedly shown interest in trading for JVR. Toronto would like Trouba in return it would take more than just JVR.
What kind of deal could maybe be done?
Trouba on Toronto would fit nice.
JVR-Laine-Ehlers-Wheeler. Would Any other team have better top 6 wingers than that?! Schiffle and Little center.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 02:08:48
Uhh Trouba wants to leave Winnipeg to go play in the states, why would he leave for another Canadian city? And also 1 year of JVR with no extension isn't on the same level as a young stud in Trouba.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 03:28:51
1 year of Jvr will not get u trouba kids a stud and getting better, Jets would probbly make a trade around myers.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 05:39:03
Hence why this post that I read this in said that JVR alone wouldn't get it done.
But both teams are intersted in those players.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 06:13:51
There's no possible deal around 1 year of JVR for Trouba as a base, Jets want a similar LHD for him, not a top 6 LW with 1 year left before UFA status.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 16:15:19
Trouba is also an rfa after this year who will want a ton of cash, can the jets afford it? They have some other young forwards who are going to want a ton of cash.

6.) 13 Aug 2017 03:36:55
Ok and.? JVR likely asks for ~7Mil if he gets to free agency. Trouba won't cost as much as JVR on his next deal (I'd guess a multi year deal around 5-6Mil)

7.) 13 Aug 2017 17:11:47
TOR: Gardner, JVR
WPG: Trouba.

8.) 13 Aug 2017 17:15:56
It would probably take JVR, Kapanen and one of their LD prospects for Trouba and maybe a low pick. However, the site you read this on yup hasn't been right about anything in years. I think they just get bored in the summer and make stuff up.



05 Aug 2017 02:04:05
Is Eichel worth an 8 year - $9M per year extension right now already?
That's a big rumor right now.


1.) 05 Aug 2017 04:36:23
Yes he is worth that.

2.) 05 Aug 2017 04:44:17
I've seen sources suggest he'll get more than McDavid, because Buffalo minus Eichel is worse than EDM minus McDavid (since no Draisaitl, etc on BUF) . Doubt he gets 13 or so, but would at the very least expect double digits as well.

3.) 05 Aug 2017 05:10:35
I could see an 8 yr US$64 million given to Eichel. McDavid is not worth US$12.5 a season. Despite winning individual trophies, McDavid has not won a Stanley Cup with Edmonton. GM Chiarelli is an idiot and should be put away into an insane aslylum for the ridiculous McDavid contract and throwing the salary structure in the NHL out of whack as a result.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 08:32:30
Yes, the salary structure is thrown out of whack because the best player in the league got the most money. Great bit of insight there.

5.) 05 Aug 2017 11:08:50
Eichel will get 10 mil maybe.

6.) 05 Aug 2017 16:35:38
Mcdavid is worth 15 if he wanted. Going to be the best player in the league for 10-12 years. My guess is 8years/ 80 mill for eichel and Matthews will be 8years/ 84 next year. To say chirelli screwed up is rediculous. He would have hated to do it but would have had to sign him for 15 mill. When you get a player like that, you just beg for mercy and get the number as low as possible without pissing him off and then move on with the rest of business.

7.) 05 Aug 2017 18:12:00
I think Eichel could get around 8 years at 9, 5-10 million.

8.) 05 Aug 2017 22:28:51
Eichel does not deserve that much, although he may get it. He is only worth around 7-8 mil. Same as draisaitl, very comparable players. I'd even give a slight edge to draisaitl.

9.) 07 Aug 2017 22:28:44
That's the most delusional Oiler-hate thing I have ever read on here NylanderMagic.

19 Sep 2017 00:14:50
-Liane Schiffle Wheeler

-Benn Seguin Radulov

Which line is better? And what other lines, on paper, are as good as these potential lines.

I would say McDavid and Drai but it looks like Drai is centering his own line pre season and probably to start the season.
That Jets line to me just barely edges the Stars line.


1.) 19 Sep 2017 09:01:40
I'll throw in XXX - Stamkos - Kucherov, LW tbd.

2.) 19 Sep 2017 12:15:34
Namestnikov /.

3.) 19 Sep 2017 14:44:14
If Marleau ends up on Matthews wing, Matthews/ Marleau/ Nylander is up there.

Ovi/ Backstrom/ Oshie is still up there tho.

4.) 19 Sep 2017 17:11:21
Baertschi, Horvat and Boeser :D.

5.) 19 Sep 2017 17:49:35
Ok. But that potential Jets and Stars lines jump out to me. Who would you guys take between those two lines?

6.) 19 Sep 2017 19:25:07
Well Seguin and Benn are better then Laine and Schiefelle right now, Wheeler better then Radulov, probably lean towards the stars line for this season.

7.) 20 Sep 2017 21:44:04
Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak are extremely effective at both ends of the rink. Probably the best line IMO.

8.) 23 Sep 2017 12:23:12
Wow probably even.



18 Sep 2017 23:20:34
So are the Leafs cheaters? Or No?


1.) 19 Sep 2017 12:43:24
I'm sure they are but so are a lot of teams. its not there fault there is a loophole in the system.



18 Sep 2017 17:19:11
Lol. Lupul.


1.) 18 Sep 2017 18:59:50
too funny of a situation, this is why contracts shouldn't be guaranteed and why the nfl has it right, oh you suck? you're cut. oh you're mediocre and you're hurt? you're cut. i'm a firm beleiver in this. justy about anyone in this day and age the way professional atheletes are paid, if they make it through their rookie contract they should be set for life. everything after that is gravy.



14 Sep 2017 15:13:21
You guys can now stop with the bad Pastrnak deals. He signed with Boston, like he was going to all along.
6 years $40M.


1.) 14 Sep 2017 18:45:55
Actually, i'm kinda surprised that he stayed. Thought he'd take a year off, make more money in like a Czech league or thr KHL and play for the Czech team in the Olympics.

2.) 14 Sep 2017 19:29:45
No. Those were all just tactics. He was playing with the Bruins all along. I could I've seen a hold out and miss a few games. But he was always signing and staying.

3.) 14 Sep 2017 19:50:56
But i mean, he had nothing to lose if he went to the K. Not like the Bruins are cup contenders. wouldve got a lotta monry and been able to play in the Olympics.



11 Sep 2017 17:34:29
Oh man. Drew Doughty is going to the Leafs after two more seasons!


1.) 11 Sep 2017 19:51:54
He wants to join his buddies Stamkos and Tavares. oh wait.

2.) 11 Sep 2017 23:06:19
Of course he is just like Stamkos did and Tavares will.

3.) 11 Sep 2017 22:35:20
He's definitely leaving LA Ik that because it's toxic w the Kings (RIP), but I can't see him going to Toronto because then they'll be screwed financially.

4.) 11 Sep 2017 23:04:28
Yup. might be hard to afford him? All the kids will need raises. anyway. I hope they can't lol. already better than my team.

5.) 12 Sep 2017 00:26:04
I'm just stirring the pot 😜.

6.) 12 Sep 2017 00:26:56
Doughty did say this weekend that he just wants to play where he can win cups, on a contender.
Some people took that as he's leaving LAK in two years when contract is up. So that's why I suggested he's going to Toronto. Haha.

7.) 12 Sep 2017 16:46:36
Maybe he signs a 2 year $5M per with the Oilers. Ha ha.
Wins back to back cups then goes to Toronto. And wins another there.

In no way was that a Ritchie/ Marner comparison.

That was a delusional proposal comparison.

And yes, It is a slam dunk no from Anahiem if Leafs ever asked for Ritchie for Komarov. Wow 😳😳.

Columbus turned a deal for those two for Duchene down within the last two days. (not sure if a pick was involved or not)

Sakic is messed. He needs to just deal Duchene and move on.

If any of you Leafs fans think the Ducks would actually trade Ritchie for Komarov, you're completely messed in the head. One of the most delusional thugs I've ever read.
Think Cogliano for Marner type delusion. Wow.
