    I have no idea what the lines will be like for the Leafs this season.

    • nordiques100 says:

      JVR-Bozak-Kessel
      Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson
      Booth-Holland-Frattin
      Komarov-Santorelli-Winnik

      In essence all 4 lines can provide some offence.

      alternatively they could go

      JVR-Bozak-Kessel
      Komarov-Kadri-Lupul
      Booth-Holland-Clarkson
      Frattin-Santorelli-Winnik

      to have some defensive presence on every line.

      Or with Kontiola in the lineup.

      JVR-Bozak-Kessel
      Komarov-Kadri-Lupul
      Booth-Kontiola-Clarkson
      Frattin-Santorelli-Winnik

      or

      JVR-Bozak-Kessel
      Lupul-Kadri-Clarkson
      Booth-Holland-Santorelli
      Komarov-Kontiola-Winnik

      and of course Orr, McLaren, Ashton, Bodie, Smith among others have a chance too. But they seem most likely the ones who’d be cut.

    Finally the league step up and put an end to the Spinorama…

    I really like the invite of Tallinder to training camp…He and Robidas are good vets for guys like Gardiner and Reilly to learn the defensive game from.

    Maybe…They can teach Phaneuf how not to be a plug.

  6. LN91 says:

    New fines for diving? Awesome, I like it.

    Players that should be worried:
    – Maxim Lapierre
    – Sydney Crosby
    – Nazem Kadri
    – Vancouver Canucks Org.
    – Montreal Canadiens Org.

    I have a feeling Polak is a dud. But at least we finally got rid of the mediocre Gunnarsson so it’s a celebratory acquisition.

  8. leafs_wallace93 says:

    Does Tallinder help? Granberg and Percy would begin their evolution from 7th to legit bottom pairing guys.

    Rielly Phaneuf (or trade for upgrade)
    Gardiner – Finn
    Percy – Granberg

    Could work out in the long term. Lots of ‘ifs’ but bringing veterans are their last legs is a certain tragedy. Fuck Robidas and Tallinder.

  9. Gambo says:

    JVR-Bozak-Kessel
    Lupul-Kadri-Frattin
    Komarov-Santorelli-Clarkson
    Booth-Holland-Kontiola

    I think this is what I’ve decided on.

    First line is going to produce, we already know that.

    Kadri and Lupul have chemistry, one of their problems last year was finding someone that worked well with them. Clarkson didn’t. They played well with Kulimen on their line and Frattin brings some of the same qualities. Frattin has the chemistry with Kadri, he had 7 goals in his first 10 games on his line before a knee injury. Could be a really tough line to stop.

    The third line of Komarov, Santorelli and Clarkson will be the shutdown line. Give them a role and let them stick to it. They all have offensive abilities, should be able to pot some goals. Santorelli is good on the draw, same with Komarov. This line should really frustrate opponents.

    Booth, Holland and Kontiola will be a skilled 4th line. Something new on the 4th line. This line should be able to skate all over other teams 4th lines and will actually be trusted to play 10+ mins a game. At least 10 goals out of each of them should be expected, that’s pretty much 30 more goals than last years 4th line.

    I was envisioning the Leafs pull off a huge blockbuster trade by now. Maybe I saw another dimension.

  11. leafy says:

    If a huge blockbuster trade does happen, I say Phaneuf is the centerpiece.

    • lafleur10 says:

      well leafy it won’t happen he makes too much at 7 million a season unless the leafs are going to pay half of the contract for the remaining years….kadri and riemer will be the ones traded by the leafs

      • leafs_wallace93 says:

        When will you trollz understand the new market…. Bobby Ryan just turned down 7 x 7, Orpik makes 5.5 long term, hell Methot is looking for 5+ long term… 7 million is the new 5 million… Phaneuf isn’t overpaid anymore.

        Phaneuf doesn’t deserve more than 1.5 compared to Orpik? Du
