Do you think NHL teams should have ice girls. girls? Vote below
“Sharks fans object to ice girls” – Sounds like fun. I’d like to be an object to the ice girls too. I don’t think it demeans me.
Top 15 most valuable Leafs in the organization:
15. Rinat Valiev, D
14. Stuart Percy, D
13. Petter Granberg, D
12. Peter Holland, C
11. Tyler Bozak, C
10. Connor Brown, RW
9. Freddy Gauthier, C
8. Matt Finn, D
7. Nazem Kadri, C
6. Jake Gardiner, D
5. William Nylander, C/W
4. James VanRiemsdyk, LW
3. Morgan Rielly, D
2. Jonathan Bernier, G
1. Phil Kessel, RW
If they develop right, in a few years we could actually have a potentially solid d-core built from within:
Morgan Rielly – Matt Finn
Jake Gardiner – Petter Granberg
Rinat Valiev – Stuart Percy
Add a stable veteran UFA or two in the mix and maybe you’ve got something here. Decent amount of potential and upside in there.
I don’t know if the combo of centres we have could ever be something down the line… future Leafs (3-4 years from now) :
VanRiemsdyk – Willy Nylander – Phil Kessel
????????????? – Nazem Kadri – Connor Brown
???????????? – Peter Holland – ??????????????
???????????? – Freddy Gauthier – ????????????
Morgan Rielly – ??????????
Jake Gardiner – Matt Finn
??????????? – Petter Granberg
Anyway’s, this group is pretty much the best hope we have as far as potential building blocks is concerned. Guys like Frattin, Leivo, Ashton, Valiev, Loov, Verhaghe, maybe McKegg, Carrick could all become role players of some kind. Bozak, Lupul, Clarkson, Franson, and Polak could all still be useful veterans for years to come.
I’m scared to know what they will re-sign Kadri for…He’s Mike Ribeiro 2.0 (Look how well his career has went).
I’d start Nylander in the AHL. At 5’9, he’d be taken advantage of by bigger NHL players.
Unless he’s Theo Fleury right off the bat, give him time to grow mentally and physically.
I’m pretty sure he’s taller than 5’9″, isn’t he 5’11”?
Some sites list him as 5’9, some as 5’11. Usually the smaller number is true, but who knows.
He was 5’9″ a couple years ago, he’s 5’11” now, and at 18 he could still grow another inch or so in the next few years.
Well that’s good news.
Fleury was a coke head with deep emotional issues which funny enough made him a beast on the ice, skilled players playing on emotion are a bit crazy, Nylander seems more button down.
I love how everyone gets offended when they see people that look better than they do. They’ll call it objectification but isn’t getting paid for looking good something many women aspire towards? There jobs, one that is actually fun and not soul crushing. Just enjoy it Shark fans instead of whining about other fix your fat selves.
San Jose is located next to San Francisco. See where I’m going with this…?
haii be niceee
I don;t like to be mean spirited, but seriously, what heterosexual male would object to having ice girls?
Unless some ugly hairy feminists are behind this.
I can’t believe this is an article.
Cody Franson is asking for 4.2 from arbitration? The dude is like Dave Andreychuck if Learch was a blueliner, buh-bye Cody.
Hey Dave Andreychuk is a Hall of Famer. Couldn’t skate well, but had hands of gold.
I love Dave Andreychuk, but I wouldn’t have wanted to see him play D.
Cody at $4.2 mil is a ton. He’s definitely not worth it. But he can put up points. I’d like to have him back at around $2.5-3 mil range.
