Any cool news or rumors going around now that we are 10 games into the season?

Side note, I love when players give kids sticks, pucks and make their day in any way. Like Ovie on Calgary the other night and Holtby. I bet that kind of stuff happens every day and every game but we don't see it all. I wish we saw more of it caught on camera.


1.) 30 Oct 2018 16:02:50
See if there's any other news, rumors or stories out there on any other teams besides Edm and Tor.
I'm sorry if this upsets anyone but let's change it up a bit on this thread. Is that possible? Let's see.

2.) 30 Oct 2018 16:05:17
Unrelated to hockey, I'm on a big pipeline project in Sask Canada right now. Building 280km of pipe to Manitoba border and going to be going through Brock Lesners property in a few weeks. Think he will bring out hot chocolate?

Just don't look at his wife. He may beat you with his lunch box size paws.

4.) 30 Oct 2018 20:16:54
Hey Yupp just curious because i'm a plumber, what's your trade?

5.) 30 Oct 2018 23:25:16
The biggest thing I heard is Wilson appealing his suspension.

And it getting denied.

So he appealed the appeal.

I can't understand why there's an appeal to the appeal, and don't understand why the NHLPA sides with Wilson. its a players association, sure, you stick up for the player, but he intentionally and deliberately injured another player. shouldn't you be more harsh?

(Not really a rumour, just an opinion, lol)

As well, Borowicki (future Ottawa captain, @Rambo) got suspended, came back, and got suspended again. Second suspension was a bit much tho.

I have a few tickets in NDT. X Ray and ultrasound and others. Inspecting the welds on this job with ultrasound on this project. Been doing mostly plant work the last ten years but have been doing pipeline work all across Canada now since June. I'll probably bounce back and fourth from plant shutdowns and pipleine work.

What do some of the rest of you do for work?

7.) 31 Oct 2018 00:39:43
I work at Chrysler in Windsor, with Kassian’s uncle. In 2008 I thought I might lose my job and took all the plumbing and pipefitting courses but never pursued it because I got my job back. I’m still considering moving out west to apprentice while my wife teaches. It’s tough to give up on a job that pays so well and has benefits out the ass though. I have a 20 year old that lives in Camrose, Alberta. I may have been an Oiler or flames fan by now had I moved, lol. Our talks would be quite different.

9.) 31 Oct 2018 02:06:20
Ya Leafs17 u might of made the right choice not pursuing plumbing. Unless you are deeply passionate about it, it's not the way to go if u all u have in mind is money. I love the trade but for the headaches and possible bankruptcy with just 1 simple mistake u have to think about it twice. Unless u where planning on doing only residential then ure ok but comercial. Oh boy.

10.) 31 Oct 2018 04:49:26
I didn’t know that Boom Boom. I thought I was losing my job and was going for a trade. I hope it works out for you.

Leafs GM Dubas has flown to Switzerland to meet with RFA Nylander to try and get a deal done. Nylander has been training in Sweden all along now and hey agreed on a neutral site in Switzerland to meet.

Source: nhl. discussion Instagram.


1.) 18 Oct 2018 14:36:10
Who put unbelievable? This is 100% true.

2.) 18 Oct 2018 15:35:31
Yeah. Apparently it was just to make it a little more personal. From the reports I heard, Dubas’s Top dollar hasn’t moved but he felt it was important to meet face to face to tell Nylander that they have no intentions of trading him. That’s a main concern of Nylanders, which I understand, is if he signs for less than he feels he’s worth to be a part of a great team and ends up in Arizona or Carolina, he would look like a fool (canes look good though early) .

Also from what Darren Dreger said this morning, this is a meeting with dubas and Nylander only. No assistant GMs standing with dubas and no agents or dad sitting with Nylander. That could make a big difference too. Dubas was apparently a huge sell for Tavares and he can maybe get Nylander to relate to him and see the big picture better without all the other voices and distractions. Hopefully something good comes from it.



16 Sep 2018 21:15:49
Byfuglin (%50 retain), Connor
Hjalmerson, Perlini.


1.) 16 Sep 2018 22:00:19
This is pretty bad. Winnipeg gets so hosed in this. Unless the object is for Winnipeg to downgrade at 2 positions and lower their available cap space. Would make a lot more sense for hjalmason had the retained money to make up for the skill difference a bit.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 00:12:30
I like Hjalmerson, but not enough to throw Connor on top of Buff to get him. Once again another trade that makes the Jets worse this year. You really need to think stuff through if you're trying to make a serious offer or try a little harder if you're trolling.

3.) 16 Sep 2018 23:52:22
How about Hjalmerson and Perlini to the Leafs for Nylander and Khadri $2 mil retained or to Edmonton, Larsson $2 mil retained and Puljujarvi?

4.) 17 Sep 2018 01:05:50
Sorry, My troll game is weak on this one I agree. I need to give some explanation.
Maybe tonight when I'm back to my hotel from dinner.
Winnipeg would have to add to this deal tho for Arizona to consider, of course.

5.) 17 Sep 2018 06:22:55
Lol islandjet is that the only thing you're ever say just bring up leafs and oilers players can’t think of anything else bud.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 14:20:00
No leaf talked about and no leaf fan commented yet lol throw it back at the oilers. Not us haha besides, those camparables weren’t even close anyway.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 14:27:45
Just tired of trade proposals followed by comments in reply to any fan that post they don't believe these trades, and gives reasons why these trades don't make sense for a team to make this trade that they are homers. So I thought I would post equivalent trade proposals that involve the worse offenders favorite teams. I just want to point out that the comment replies of "homer" add little value to your argument about these posts. So expect more of these equivalent trade ideas. Who knows maybe some of you will actually post something worth reading as to why my counter-proposals are realistic or not for these 2 teams. I, like many hockey fans who reply intelligently to trade proposals on this site would like some actual hockey talk not just insult replies.

8.) 17 Sep 2018 17:10:01
What is equivalent about Nazem Kadri and Dustin Byfuglien?! Lol Naz is forward instead of D, 6 years younger, makes 60% of the salary. Nylander and connor aren’t on the same level yet either, but both young scoring wingers, I can see the connection.

9.) 17 Sep 2018 17:51:15
If you believe those are equivalent proposals than you are most definitely not replying intelligently.

10.) 17 Sep 2018 20:30:07
You still can't think of a educated response. Sad. The reason that I didn't put players that were equal in value to the one the Jets would have to give is that the Leafs don't have a d-man close to Buff so I put 2 forwards on instead.

11.) 17 Sep 2018 20:43:48
In what world does Puljujarvi and Larson = Nylander and Kadri.

12.) 18 Sep 2018 22:54:49
Hahaha educated response wtf are you saying bud, you can’t just repeat what I said to you



16 Sep 2018 07:12:19
Ehlers, Little, Trouba
Bjustad, Yandle, 2019 1st.


1.) 16 Sep 2018 08:38:23
No thanks from Winnipeg. This trade makes them much worse again. I thought we were stopping with all the terrible trade proposals for Jets players. Especially with the boat anchor contract Yandle has.

2.) 16 Sep 2018 12:22:36
I feel like this is a troll but if not it’s terrible for Peg.

3.) 16 Sep 2018 15:40:48
This horrible trade makes the Jets older and less skilled. Why not have the Oilers trade Puljujarvi and Nurse, or the Leafs Nylander and Gardner for that package?

4.) 16 Sep 2018 17:12:16
Sure ^.

5.) 16 Sep 2018 21:10:48
Ok sorry. Little tweak.
Ehlers, Trouba, Hellebuyck for
Yandle, Louongo, 2023 4th round pick.
Winnipeg retains %50 on Helly and Ehlers. Florida signs Trouba to $2.5M - 8 year extension.
Winnipeg gets replacement scoring D man, goalie to mentor the prospects and a solid pick in the future.

6.) 17 Sep 2018 00:07:55
Now you got your troll right yupp. You didn't put enough effort into your first trolling attempt.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 01:01:56
Thank you.

8.) 17 Sep 2018 01:15:07
Some posters know very little about hockey and the Jets or have a great time watching people disagree with their non-sense.



20 Jul 2018 22:42:29
Jets : Trouba, Little.
Leafs : Mathews, 2019 1st.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 23:06:13
I’d like to keep that 1st. Could we swap the late 1st out for liljegren and marner?!

2.) 20 Jul 2018 23:18:21
I doubt Toronto is going to trade the best player in the history of hockey for a terrible defenseman and an old, overrated center.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 23:26:49
Not enough from Toronto. Little easily replaces Matthews as #1/ 2 center and a late 1st does not get you Trouba. Try again.

4.) 21 Jul 2018 00:38:01
Little old? No overrated yes he’s essentially Tyler Bozak. Trouba is a good 3rd dman was a strong dcore.

5.) 21 Jul 2018 03:17:20
Can Matthews play center well? He’d probably be battling Roslovic for second line centre.

And wheres the replacement dman for Trouba? Winnipeg can’t lose a star defensive defesemand not get a dman back. Add Rielly and then it becomes closer. look LIttle matches Matthews but a 1st is way worse than Trouba.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 12:50:44
I have looked up and down the postings for this trade and can't find who you meant as the "best player in the history of hockey"

7.) 21 Jul 2018 15:37:35
Your sarcasm and hate for the leafs balsam was coming off a sarcastic remark to begin with from a bias jets fan. Take a look through the archives on all of your comments on leafs proposals. It’s quite comical the garbage that comes from your mouth.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 17:25:36
The Jets and Leafs would not be good training partners as any right shot d-men the Jets would trade Winnipeg would want a d-man in return. It is common knowledge that the Leafs are pathetically weak at D and have nobody, other than Rielly that would be able to make the Jets NHL roster. As for this trade proposal there is no way Matthews gets traded unless the Leafs run into cap problems in the future.

9.) 21 Jul 2018 19:44:05
Lmao guess 50point Jake Gardiner or Zaitsev (excluding contract) or Dermott isn't as good as Joe f’n Morrow @islandjet. Good to know tho. Have fun playing and paying Dmitry Kulikov tho.

10.) 22 Jul 2018 06:14:04
And islandjet shows he’s just memarcusjoes puppet haha the fact that he thinks Matthews would be the one traded for cap reasons shows how dumb he actually is lol

It’s like saying if oilers can’t find someone to take lucic for cap relief, they will start shopping mcdavid lol these 2 are making Winnipeg look like the most clueless fans in hockey.

11.) 28 Jul 2018 18:42:15
Unbiased Jim you are always name calling which shows how weak your arguments are. You are not unbiased but a shill for the defensive-less Leafs. The likely hood of the Jets trading with the Leafs are remote at best.

12.) 30 Jul 2018 17:38:54
Thanks leafs17. But really. you think matthews is the best player in the history of hockey?

And I am the comical one. Lol.

I think I remember Timo Mier being called a bust and not that good on here over the years. Now tied for second in goals this season doing very well. Having a solid break out year.

Skinner is also tied for second in league goals, and now Carolina has cooled down and in need of scoring (hence why they really want Nylander), why did Carolina pretty much give away Skinner this off season? I never understood that move.

And Hoffman, On an 11 game point streak now I believe and Ottawa just gave him away as well. Two solid top 6 wingers just given away basically. I get the Ottawa situation but trading him to San Jose because you didn't want him in your division then San Jose turns around and trades him to Florida. That was so bad.

After a game last week Neal and Mike Smith of the Flames were heard going at it. Apparently Neal was not happy with something Smith said about defensive miscues in the game and told him "make a save". They are roper entry friends off the ice but that's the second time in a week they went at it and the team isn't happy with Smith. Fans want Ritich to take over as well I've read. Smith UFA at seasons end is good for the Flames.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 18:43:48
Could Calgary be a good place for Bobrovski?

2.) 13 Nov 2018 01:26:11
I would want goalie Bob on my team, but, For like 3/ 4 years no more than like $7M. He's 30 years old now and rumor has it he wants close to Price money! I would stay so far away, depending on term and money tho I guess. Wait and see who pulls the trigger and offers the most for him.



11 Nov 2018 10:13:07
Elliott Friedman has reported than Dubas has asked teams to indicate what they would offer in exchange for Nylander as they engage in trade talks.




09 Nov 2018 12:41:45
- A Caps fan who won the 50/ 50 is donating the money to victims of he Pittsburgh shooting. Nearly $40,000. Wow.

Some stats I seen a few days ago.

- Aves top line Rantanen, McKinnon, Landeskog had the same amount of points (63) as the entire LA Kings roster.

- Arizona Coyotes had a higher scoring percentage in their penalty kill
(7/ 38 - %18.4) than their power play
(5/ 34 - %14.7).




09 Nov 2018 12:40:47
How about Thomas Chabota start to the season. Before Thursday nights games he was T4 in league scoring with 20 points in first 15 games. Tied for 4th with Malkin and Bergeron only behind Rantanen, McDavid and McKinnon. Pretty damn impressive start from the young D. I knew he would become a solid D man but did not see him as an offensive guy, more solid all around more so defensively. Is this just a hot streak or can he kinda keep being productive offensively.


1.) 09 Nov 2018 18:28:38
I think he’s built to put up numbers, but obviously not maintain a pace like this. This is 100pt pace. If he finishes with 60+ as a rookie that’s an insanely impressive feat.

2.) 09 Nov 2018 18:55:27
He quietly jumped into top 5 scorers.
Jim, is he still a rookie? I thought he played last season full time? .
I remember a couple years ago at World Jr, he just dominated like I had never seen a Dman do at the tournament . I know its different no that he's in NHL, but I think he can be a top notch player in the league. like Jim said. 60+ .
I see possible Norris candidate in the future.

3.) 09 Nov 2018 19:26:54
Oh, he may have hit the 40 games or whatever. Not sure. Even as a sophomore if that’s the case, very impressive.

4.) 09 Nov 2018 19:28:57
Yeah Sosa, just looked, he played 63 games and had 25 pts. Now has 22 in 16 haha I didn’t think he played that many last season.

5.) 09 Nov 2018 20:01:05
Well still very impressive as a sophomore.
Wish my team had him.

6.) 09 Nov 2018 22:47:42
Ya me too. Beualieu was supposed to be are version of Chabot.

7.) 10 Nov 2018 01:09:40
Beauleiu was a bust. had all the tools, but couldn't put it together. seems like things are same for him in Buffalo.

8.) 10 Nov 2018 14:04:24
I know he was a bust Sosa I'm a big fan just like u. But at one point he was suppose to be a 50+ point defensemen in the league.

9.) 10 Nov 2018 15:40:26
Well like most of Habs first round picks. didn't turn out.

10.) 10 Nov 2018 16:57:00
At no time did anyone with any sense at all say beaulieu had 50 point potential. Habs hoped he could develop into a top 4 for them but he never did. Just another one of those guys that had too many off ice issues to reach their full potential. Which wasn't a 50 plus point dman but could have probably been a solid 2nd pair guy with 35 point potential.

11.) 10 Nov 2018 18:43:31
I remember first time I saw beaulieu play I was at the Marlies game, and him and Jake Gardiner were by far the best 2 players on the ice. As Defensemen they each must have created 10 scoring chances that game and I thought he would be a pretty good player in the NHL. Gardiner would have been like 22-23 after finishing college and Beauleiu would have been 20ish. Both 17th overall picks of their draft to play the same style. Don’t know if I would have picked him to be a 50+ pt guy (took Gardiner till 27 to do that too) but thought he’d be a lot better than he has been.

12.) 10 Nov 2018 20:40:36
Actually jim they don't really play the same style beaulieau when playing his best was more physical then gardiner but gardiner at his worst was still a better puck mover and better offensively. And probably even better defensively too.

13.) 11 Nov 2018 13:47:49
“He’ll be an offensive-defenseman … he’s a good skater, good puck-mover, ” NHL Central Scouting’s Chris Bordeleau told NHL. com. “He has a good shot and is very poised with the puck. He’s a hard worker and reads the play well. We thought he should have had more points this year than he had, but overall he has the NHL quickness already and that’s what’s really important at this stage. ”

That’s the pre-draft profile of Beualieu from a guy whose life’s work is ranking these kids. You could read that and assume he’s talking about Gardiner too. I know they didn’t end up the same player, but saying they were both drafted to be offensive Dmen isn’t wrong lol Jesus.

14.) 11 Nov 2018 14:31:13
Don't get your panties in a knot jim. I was referring to what both players have done at the NHL level I'm well aware of the fact both players looked like they had the potential as 17/ 18 year olds to put up some points in the nhl but so do a lot of players at that age.

15.) 11 Nov 2018 22:54:31
I said they were drafted to be the same guy for their teams. Offensive defensemen and right away you have to argue that lol pro scouts say they were, not just me. They were both picked as puck moving offensive defensmen. In the AHL I watched them live as they both dominated a game offensively, is what I said. But then comes your “well actually Jim” lol

You always bring up my need to be right, what about your need to correct when there’s nothing to correct lol they were both drafted as ‘that guy’. Like I said, that draft report could have been written about either of them. They did not pan out as the same player, I agree. But they were drafted to be. Kadri was drafted to be a huge point producing Centreman, not a 2 way shut down, Wendel Clark was drafted 1st overall as a defensman and yet was a winger his entire career. All I said was what they were drafted to be, not what they are 8-10 years later.

16.) 11 Nov 2018 23:32:02
Not to get into a big thing but you said they were drafted to play the same style. I just told you the difference in style. Also boom boom added he was suppose to be a 50 plus point dman when it took 4 years of junior to hit the 50 point mark. now you may have watched him live once but I watched him live about 150 times in junior in the ahl and in the nhl I can tell you without a doubt his offensive skills never compared to gardiner at any time. But when he was actually playing his best and sober he was a somewhat physical decent puck moving dman. Even in your scouting report from nhl. com they used the word good and never elite which you probably have to be in at least a couple categories to be touted as a 50+ point nhl dman.

17.) 11 Nov 2018 23:35:32
Do you just come on here to argue or do you think every time somebody doesn't say "yes jim" " that's right jim" that they are out to get you? chill out man, other people are allowed to add to a post too.

18.) 12 Nov 2018 05:40:46
Neither of them were ‘elite’ at that time or they wouldn’t have been there at 17th overall. And lots of people add to posts, and I communicate with them and get along. But when every time I post it’s followed by your “well actually jim” Or “what are you talking about jim? ” I don’t think you’re the one to pointing fingers about arguing lol 15 other people on here can say the exact thing I said and you wouldn’t bat an eye. It’s pretty obvious. I get along with all the other hab fans on here too, so you have lost that ‘hab hater’ line every time you want to argue.

19.) 12 Nov 2018 10:01:53
I have agreed with you numerous times and I'm not even disagreeing with you this time really lol. Al I did was point out the difference in the two styles. i already explained to you it was as much or more to go against boom booms theory then yours but I guess that's not good enough for you. Anyway your a lot easier to get along with on here after a leafs win then when they lose. So maybe I should just wait till they win again before I comment on any threads that involves you.

20.) 12 Nov 2018 13:14:12
Lol after the leafs win? That has nothing to do with it. Leafs got spanked by a really good team, second half of a back to back, on the road, with travel in between and no matthews or Andersen lol I’m not worried about that game. I don’t change my opinions or the way I treat people because of a win or a loss lol.



28 Oct 2018 17:47:36
Question for anyone but Leafs17, because he'll be offended somehow.

What are your guys thoughts on the Trouba hit. Dirty or clean?

I was a dick to Leafs17 earlier with a comment about it because it's hilarious how offended and whiney he can be about things I say for some reason.

Simple question for anyone else about the Mathews injury.
I haven't heard how bad the injury is either. Anyone know? 1/ 2 games. 1/ 2 weeks?


1.) 28 Oct 2018 18:22:29
It was totally clean. will probably be called dirty because it was on Mathews. however. it was a good clean hit. oh. for you Leafs fans. I despise Trouba bout a much as Mathews, so no bias here.

Sounds like he has had shoulder issues even as a teen. As per HNIC last night. if so. this could be bad for Mathews now and long term . as much as I don't like the guy, hopefully nothing long term.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 18:26:17
Sorry yupp but you don’t get to decide who replies to your posts. There was nothing wrong with the hit IMO. Yes you are a dick.

3.) 28 Oct 2018 18:30:49
Clean hit Mathews was to confident and was cought with his head down happens to the best of the best.

4.) 28 Oct 2018 19:03:33
So does anyone know what the injury is or how bad it could be? 1 or 2 games. Or possibly weeks?
Good two wins vs Jets back to back. Surprised me.

5.) 28 Oct 2018 19:04:07
I bet I'm a dick for asking about a Leafs players injury and cogratulating them in two wins vs a good team. Sorry about that.

6.) 28 Oct 2018 20:16:59
I watched it twice and didn't see anything wrong with it.

7.) 28 Oct 2018 20:36:50
Seems like just a guy trying to cut into the slot and getting stood up by a clean hit then.

8.) 28 Oct 2018 22:09:50
I bet you’re really concerned about the health of Matthews and hope that he doesn’t miss a beat. Judge the hit for yourself yupp, you’re a hockey insider. Thanks for the praise on the leafs beating Winnipeg twice. I was actually “super scared” going into these matchups. Bahaha, if a hockey game makes you scared, then you don’t really have much else going on in your life. We’re here for you, if you’re ever scared just reach out for a cuddle. Bro’s?

9.) 28 Oct 2018 22:19:04
It was a clean hit by Trouba in an area of the rink you rarely see open ice hits, so Matthews wasn't expecting it. I like to tease Leaf fans about how soft Matthews is but that hit would have hurt a lot of NHL players. I hope he gets better soon.

10.) 28 Oct 2018 22:25:37
100% clean. I was just mad cause it happened to Auston, but its shoulder on shoulder clean through and through.

My problem with it was Torontos lack of response until Kadris goal. There was no redeemable physicalilty from guys like Leivo, Goat, Marincin, Oz and we didn’t exactly ‘show it to the Jets’ until the third.

11.) 28 Oct 2018 22:40:35
What don’t you like about Matthews Sosa? Is it the American thing, because we know how you feel about them? Or is it because he’s not McDavid or Draisaitl, I know how much you love those guys.

12.) 28 Oct 2018 23:27:20
Totally clean — looked a lot like a separated shoulder to me — it’s the opposite of the one he hurt last year I think — if it is separated he’s looking at like 4-6 weeks.

13.) 29 Oct 2018 00:58:29
Lmao. It's crazy how whiney and salty you get about anything I say Leafs17. You made my boring Sunday. 🍻
I've re read this thread and you're butt hurt comments about what ever I say is amazing.

14.) 29 Oct 2018 01:03:50
I jus think he's cocky. and he's way over hyped. And yes. I really like McDavid and Draisaitl. and not ashamed to say it.
And. he's a friggin Leaf. I'm a Habs fan.

15.) 29 Oct 2018 01:13:22
Oh no! Someone doesn't like a Leafs player and Leafs17 is offended! Shocking.

16.) 29 Oct 2018 01:15:03
Unsportsmanlike, Crap really? Thought it was the same shoulder as last year. Read today all Babcock said was Mathews will miss at least 1 game. Haven't heard anything else about the injury or expected time missed. I was thinking if it was reinjured shoulder from last year that might be bad, but it's the other shoulder?

17.) 29 Oct 2018 01:21:18
I don't know why Sosa dosnt like Mattews but personally I dislike him because he always looks and walwalkwalwalks around like he's better then everyone although he's very good, professionals like McDavid, Pietrangelo, Webber are really good hockey players but also very humble. I might be 100% wrong about this but I still remember at the draft saying this guy reminds me of Jack Eichel in the way that he's a really good player but just seems too confident. Maybe it's just the way he is and if it is it's working for him because he's showing really good numbers but that's the reason why I personally don't like him. I know u guys (mostly leads fan) will disagree with this statement and that's fine but i'm entitled to share my views.

18.) 29 Oct 2018 01:31:03
Also Leafs 17. I do hope the kid isn't injured to seriously. I may not like him. but I don't wish him any ill will.

19.) 29 Oct 2018 02:49:01
Agree with BoomBoom. He seems like that cockyness that Eichel has as well. Not that humbleness that Crosby and McDavid have.
I'm sorry for my opinion Leafs17. Sorry I'm a douche for thinking that. I'm so sorry. Sorry.

20.) 29 Oct 2018 06:30:52
Eh no problem yupp. I have other things in life to worry about other than whose team gets the most 1st overalls but don’t do anything with them. Cheers!

21.) 29 Oct 2018 13:24:05

22.) 29 Oct 2018 13:24:56
You've sure been worrying about anything I say over the years.

23.) 29 Oct 2018 16:01:35
Out at least 4 weeks. Those top two lines, Reily and Anderson are going to have to carry the team now. Leafs actually have been better when Mathews is out injured last season. So probably not much to worry about there.

24.) 29 Oct 2018 16:54:40
He’s out a minimum of 4 weeks.

25.) 29 Oct 2018 16:55:20
Not a big fan of Matthews either - I'm hoping JT will provide him with someone to look up to who also has a lot of class in my opinion. But, I'm also a habs fan. so take that with a grain of salt.
I really hope he gets back soon, but from what i have heard it is approximately 4 weeks or more.

26.) 29 Oct 2018 20:52:24
😱😱😱😱😱. Sosa, BoomBoom, Thunder, you guys aren't allowed to dislike Leafs players on here!

27.) 30 Oct 2018 00:01:23
You’re embarrassing yourself now yupp. I asked Sosa a question. Are you going to drag this on for weeks because I called you out for being arrogant? Don’t forget I called vbb’s out too. Weird eh, a leafs fan calling out a leafs fan? I just call it as I see it.

28.) 30 Oct 2018 01:01:00
I’ve never noticed the Jack Eichel comparisons. Matthews definitely has never thrown his team under the bus as Eichel has on a few occasions. Maybe he does walk around like his sh*t doesn’t stink, I don’t know. Maybe it’s because you don’t like the leafs, I don’t know. The guy has scored a lot of goals in his young career and barely even cracks a smile. Until the ear thing in Chicago which was frowned upon by many. I think if he was on your team, your feelings would be different. Yupp, please try to keep our arguments between you and I, no need to try and drag everyone into it. I know it would be a mature thing to do but give it a shot.

29.) 30 Oct 2018 11:47:06
@yupp. First of all you’re not the guy to talk about someone getting offended easily over this stuff. I say Chiarelli lost a trade or overpaid a player and you immediately turn into a 6 year old girl who just dropped her ice cream on the sidewalk. It’s like I insulted your mother or something

Secondly, the hit was clean, nothing wrong with it, unfortunate he got hurt. However I haven’t heard a single person in the media, a fan, anyone say it was dirty so it’s kind of a dumb thing to try to stir up. There was no controversy.

Thirdly, Leafs were better without Matthews last year? Lol where do you come up with this crap. With Matthews in the lineup they won 38 of 60 games (.610 hockey) and were getting 1.35 pts per contest. Without him they won 11 of 20 (.550 hockey) accumulating 1.2 pts per game. The garbage you spew while telling other people they don’t know what they’re talking about is astounding lol.

30.) 30 Oct 2018 11:49:11
@yupp they say they don’t like him because he's cocky and that’s there opinion. Literally no one has told them they are wrong or can’t say that. And yet you got all bent out of shape over me saying Kassian had issues that we wouldn’t want to take on. The way I see that is you think everyone has to like every Oiler, even their healthy scratches lol again, simply astounding.

31.) 30 Oct 2018 11:52:29
Oh, and great insight yupp. The top 2 lines, their best Dman and starting goalie are going to have to carry the team? That’s such outside the box thinking that a team will rely on its 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th best players when their best goes down with an injury lol it’s incredible that came out of the same mouth as “leafs were better without Matthews”. Just gold on top of gold on top of gold. How are you not paid for this stuff yet?!

32.) 30 Oct 2018 12:16:13
I love how salty you get. It makes my day. And I was about to add in "you'll upset the whiners" in my last comment. Could you imagine how more triggered you would have been! 😱😱.

No Jim. You said you hadn't been critical of anyone but PC and at the exact same time you were very critical of someone's personal life doubting if they had cleaned up or not when it's a know thing that they are doing a lot better now than before they came to the team. That's basically the definition of being critical. I don't care if you don't like Kassian or not, But don't go around saying you aren't critical of anyone but PC but are critical of someone's personal life at the exact same time.
How you take that as me telling you you're not allowed to not like Kassian as a hockey player is beyond me. You always take what I say to an extreme and bend it a bit. You really need to read what I say, twice, slowly, understand it and then respond. Don't so read to reply, read to understand. Now read this again slowly. Nothing I say here should offend you and trigger you, it's just a calm conversation. Relax. Why couldn't you beat my rival Flames last night Fuk! That's not an insult that's a playful frustration statement by me, that's all. Damn rival Canuks won too Fuk. 😫.

33.) 30 Oct 2018 12:58:33
Okay yupp, I read it twice.

You never responded how leafs were better without Matthews when in the 60 games he played, they were on pace for 111 pt season and when he wasn’t in the lineup, they were on a 98 pts pace for the season. Once again, hell of a politician avoiding questions, but not much more.

Secondly I never denied once that Kassian was clean and sober. I applauded him if he was. I said there’s always the risk of a relapse which I wouldn’t want to risk in a business decision even if someone’s been clean for 2, 3, 4, 5 years. Why don’t you take your own advice and actually read, understand and then respond. ‘Don’t read to respond, read to understand’ lol.

34.) 30 Oct 2018 16:11:04
When it’s a family member or a friend with those problems, I would believe to a fault that they were going to stay clean and I would support them 100%. However, he’s a pro hockey player, basically a private contractor, and teams are investors. In my own business, i wouldn’t invest money in a strangers business as easily as I would loan money to family or a friend.

There’s a different trust element. He’s lost that trust from a lot of ppl. If he gained it back in Edmonton, good for him and he might go somewhere else and do the same. I wouldn’t want it on my team if I was making the call, simple as that.

35.) 30 Oct 2018 16:13:08
But if it’s not off ice issues why they don’t want him there anymore, then it’s on ice and leafs, when healthy, are a harder forward group to crack than Edmonton, don’t see the fit.

36.) 30 Oct 2018 18:45:39
Kassian wasn't performing and was say a few games. His agent and GM talked and Gm allowed the agent to look
Around for a possible trade and fresh start. The agent is doing his job and loooong out for his guy and wants to find more ice time.
Kassian doesn't want to leave Edm. Edm doesn't want Kassian to leave. His agent is doing his job. I read that today. Happens all the time to guys in and out of the lineup just usually doesn't come out in the media.

37.) 30 Oct 2018 19:45:13
We also know that when things come out in the media they are often followed up by a comment such as Kassian’s. Don’t believe everything you read. Has someone ever came out and said “I want a trade” while still on the roster? I mean it’s possible but they’re taught to say the right thing to the media. Of course he doesn’t want out of Edmonton, who would?

38.) 31 Oct 2018 01:18:07
Jesus man. That's not from me or my opinion Its from NHL insiders that I read from.
I could say the sky is blue and you would disagree just because I'm the one who said it.

39.) 31 Oct 2018 01:10:20
Okay, so you cleared that up. Kassian doesn’t want to leave Edmonton and Edmonton wants him to stay but they won’t play him and he has his agent finding him a job elsewhere 🤔 lol

But for the fourth time, how are the leafs better without Matthews?! because they definitely don’t look better when we watch those games, and they don’t win as many games without him as they do with him. Are you going to explain it? Or am I to assume you just made it up to take another unnecessary shot at a guy? Lol.

40.) 31 Oct 2018 02:57:42
Leafs with Mathews GF/ G - 3.45
Leafs without Mathews GF/ G - 3.04

GA/ G with - 2.9
GA/ G without - 2.62

PP with - 28/ 172
PP without - 19/ 55

PP % with - 22.1
PP % without - 34.5.

Some ways they are better without him there.
Power play and goals against are better. Only ones I looked into there. Don't have much time for ya anymore and these conversations. I'm done going at it with ya man.
Give it's a rest for a week or so.

41.) 31 Oct 2018 09:26:16
so they scored 12% more goals and allowed 10% more when he was in the lineup by those numbers. That’s another positive correlation in his favour even by the numbers you just provided. Their gf/ ga ratio is 2% better and they had an 8% better win percentage when he played vs when he didn’t. The only number you have that shows opposite is PP% and even when 100% healthy he was on the second PP unit and averaged 5th most PP ice time on the team. But yeah, they’re better without him, because you said so. Every team is better without their best player lol.

42.) 31 Oct 2018 20:18:12
Maybe you should give it a rest yupper. You continue to show your maturity level. You change the subject to tell us about your personal life, which seemed to me like we were done. Yet you are still apologizing for offending people in your posts. Do you enjoy dropping subtle hints at people, does it make you feel like a big boy? It sounds like you do an adults job, I’m trying to figure out how your coworkers deal with you. Stop the BS and reply to people without acting like a spoiled teenager.

43.) 01 Nov 2018 01:36:08
You are so easily triggered. I love it.

I don't think STL does this. They like Schen - Oreilly as a one two center combo. Bozak is a good third line center.
And Jets have Schifle - Little one two center and solid wingers. Why do you want Schen for? To bump little down to third line center i guess? Still, STL says no I think.
