    I know it’s early, but Carolina may be a solid team this year

    John Tavares is pretty good at hockey.
    But the Leafs still suck at defending.
    So they have great O and crap D, which makes their games kinda fun

    Leafs Hawks off the charts. 6-6. 3 goals with less than 1:25 to play in the game. Kane, then Matthews who does the I can't hear you to Hawk fans, and then Kane scores with 30 seconds to go and does I can't hear you to Matthews who, to his credit, laughs

    Those last 2 minutes of regulation were hilarious. Bummed that they pulled it out in OT, but, :laugh: :laugh:

    That was awesome. Kane and Matthews trained together this off-season so I expected that smirk from Matthews after Kane mocked him. :laugh:

    Generally agree about their fans but I love Matthews too much to root against the team.

    I'm fine with the Leafs, and I'm kind of a Matthews fan since he's American, but the Leafs fans are a toxic stew of ****, so I'll be rooting against them for the foreseeable future.

    Leafs remind me of the Boudreau era Caps just running and gunning.

    I'm going to try to follow the Islanders a bit this year just because Trotz went there. I'm very interested to see how Trotz does with this team especially batter losing Tavares. Its early but so far the Islanders look so much better defensively. Giving up only 5 goals in 3 games. They have played some decent teams. Including unshifting out the Sharks today. I'm actually hoping Karlsson and the Sharks fail miserably this year.

    With what cap space? They're gonna have two players accounting for $25M.

    The Leafs probably need to look at getting out of that Zaitsev contract. They bet big on him and lost.

    Marleau is probably another guy they’d be willing to get rid of in order to make everything work with the cap seeing as Matthews is certainly getting a McDavid-like contract next year.

    They’ll need to make some moves clearly.

    I still remember the Orlov contract thread on the mains, in which one Leafs fan was adamant that Zaitsev was the superior defenseman among the two.

    To be fair, and one might say "actually", that kind of thing happens in EVERY discussion of player value involving Leafs fans. Hell, they show up even in discussions where their player is not even mentioned. LOL

    Nylander seems like the obvious candidate, they could also get a top guy for Kadri.

    Marleau signed there because he wanted to and has a full NMC in his contract. He's not going anywhere if the Leafs are in a playoff spot.

    I don't think so.

    Solid middle-pairing guy, propably.

    Really curious to see what they do with Nylander, but either way they are going to have to blow up that offense to afford to sign everyone next summer. I wouldn't be shocked if they ended up trading Nylander.

    Good thing they weren't playing Boston. Marchand would've gotten triggered and attacked someone.
