Did you ever answer my questions about the Leafs draft record?

They are consistently at or near last place in the west for like 8 years. Tambellini was just plain awful and if I were ownership I would expect MacT to produce results within a couple seasons or he’d be in trouble too.

And he wants to get a top d man.

How’s that gonna happen?

The only way I see that happening is if they trade the #3 pick + something else like Yakupov.

Nobody is going to sign in Edmonton as a UFA and nobody is going to trade a top 2 d man for Sam Gagner or Nail Yakupov when Gagner is terrible and Yakupov is a gamble because of the KHL. Yakupov has a lot of skill and could end up being a great player but if he doesn’t get a huge contract after next year he’ll bolt to the KHL as they will offer him one.

If Mac T wants a top 2 d man it starts with one of Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Justin Schultz.

Comment on Morning Rumors III: Ovechkin, Halak, Flames Free Agents, Maple Leafs and Torts by Dave http://mynhltraderumors.com/2014/04/15/morning-rumors-iii-ovechkin-halak-flames-free-agents-maple-leafs-and-torts/comment-page-1/#comment-785845 Wed, 16 Apr 2014 21:16:37 +0000 http://mynhltraderumors.com/?p=21966#comment-785845 I don’t think Nonis is doing a bad job, rewind to last summer and look at some of his changes:
- Signing Dave Bolland for some draft picks (nothing high), he was playing extremely well, then he had a fluke injury that kept him out all year and then came back at significantly less than 100%
- Signing Bernier who turned out to be a solid goalie for us, not his fault that Bernier had injury problems down the stretch.
- Signing Mason Raymond for 1 mill which was a mega steal and everyone knew it.
- Signing David Clarkson, yes we overpaid, but no one expected Clarkson to come in and have the worst year of his career.

I remember the excitement in Leaf nation last year when this all went down. On paper it looked like some good work by the GM, but some bad circumstances threw a wrench in this years plans. So I don’t think Nonis deserves all the scrutiny he’s getting right now.

I can do a quick search on the internet and within an hour, I can come up with many scouting reports and lists to help make a drafting decision. And it’s all free.

Wow….if that is an accurate quote, what a condemnation of the Leafs scouting team ….as I read it. My guess is that, the Leafs front office is one of the biggest, and highest paid groups in the league , and same likely goes for their scouting team. So ….with the on-ice product stinking , or at least having many holes….someone or some group, aint doing a bang up job. Nonis statement may actually make sense . At the same time, Dave needs to look in the mirror, at himself and his lieutenants . No doubt Shanny is beginning to look closely at the superstructure . There will be blood.

Comment on The Philadelphia Flyers Sign Andrew MacDonald To Six-Year Extension by Andrei http://mynhltraderumors.com/2014/04/15/the-philadelphia-flyers-sign-andrew-macdonald-to-six-year-extension/comment-page-1/#comment-785841 Tue, 15 Apr 2014 22:39:16 +0000 http://mynhltraderumors.com/?p=21982#comment-785841 I agree that this is too long of a term, but based on what the Flyers can trade for an upgrade, it’s not worth it. Why gut the team and set yourself back even further just for a #1 dman. Kimmo is probably done after the year so we needed a PMD anyway. AND this makes Grossman expandable since MacD is a more mobile version of him anyway. Not ideal, but not bad.
