Reached 50 pages on our offseason discussion thread, and we are awfully close to the start of the season. So excited to watch this year's Leafs

I wanted him originally signed instead of Reaves. Guess we'll see what kind of impact Reaves' presence will have on this roster.

Some of you probably already read this stuff, but I wanted to highlight this article.

I think its ideas around defensive classification are interesting enough that I might start using it.

TL;DR
D should be classified as:

Top-2
Bottom-4
And I'll add in another called 6-7 for the spare types that get 30 ish games a year

Also if you want to be sad at 9 in the morning, I'd suggest reading this reddit post from Amirov's father

Leafs announce their Traverse City roster, with only 3 invitees in the form of Mazden Leslie, Spencer Sova, and Tyson Greenway. Expect Leslie and Sova to be ELC targets

Yeah. Reading this just re-affirms my opinion that he would have been a terrific leaf. Everything we could ever want in a player, and anyone who says we messed up by picking him can kick rocks

I just hope I can show a quarter of bravery that this kid showed in his last few months.

Patrick Kane coming to Toronto would be both cool but also makes no sense lul

As we added 2 guys already who are all offense no defense. Would prefer a 2-way wing for the bottom 6 in the event McMann either does not look good or struggles which is why Heinen would have been perfect as he showed he can be both a bottom 6 and top 6 player in Pitt

Comtois PTO would have been nice too right?

No as hes really not needed. I think VGK is perfect for him as once Carrier prices himself out heres the cheaper replacement

We already got Lafferty and LW is pretty much set (Jarnkrok, Bertuzzi, Knies, Lafferty)

Gregor is fine as he is competition for McMann only I wish Heinen got the PTO over him

Dubas steals another member of Leafs management, but unfortunately it's not Wes Clarke. Jon Elkin departs the Leafs for the Steel city

Not really upset with that one as his preference for the European system may have hurt more than benefited us. Cause man not a whole lot was done for the goalies till very recently and I mean very lul

Honestly would be interesting to bring someone like Curtis Joseph in for director of goalie development as who better to have than him or another former top goalie like Potvin, Belfour, etc.

When TOR brought in Elkin we had four goalies: Pickard, Sparks, Kaskisuo and McAdam with Scott and Woll in the system. Goalies are voodoo but looking at TOR's depth we have Hildeby, Peksa, Akhtyamov, Petruzzelli, Cavallin, and McKay. Who are we giving the credit for that?

The scouts who went hey lets go get these guys as without them probs would not have drafted or went after any of these guys

Like the one thing we can fully credit Elkin for is Murray at this point

Same as what we saw FLA did with Luongo gimmie Cujo or Belfour to lead the department

Yea kind of glad they aint broadcasting as its 5-0 CBJ

Cavallin would not have been my choice for starting goaltender game 1 and it seems boyz just decided to lay down and die

Guess they took lessons from the big boyz

So the man who had the role of Goaltender Evaluation and Development wouldn’t have played a role in those selections
