    Yes, 'We can and we will', love it. Try being happy for a few days folks, media. We have our best forwards locked up in their prime years, all good moving forward and on to winning some Stanley cups. Dubas is the best GM in the league, a great mind, watch and learn others, a great summer Kyle, a better team, younger, faster...moving on, moving forward... A great decade ahead. Go leafs go.

    Won?.. lol. I still remember all the analysts said that how can the Leafs pay him cause he was insanely really good?. Let’s look at it now he’s a Leafs for another 6 years. These so call experts should just focus on hockey, not business wise.

    Yeah guys great show,new fan,Bianco new fan because it takes a strong game to play with SERENA and u go know where with out fight and belief....THANKS,I am teach pro,but decided not to teach,so my teacher set up a match for me to play I got to play a number one pro practice partner,she was very good,with a knee brace,but I won most of all my points aces and winners when we finished my teacher said what do u want to do I said go pro,he said u should,so its not like I don't know what I am talking about stay strong thanks and good job,impressed take a breath and keep up the great tennis...I am sincerely glad some one took the game to Serena she is strong and players tend to write themselves if two game in to a set,or two points in to a game,so happy u didn't do that wow,never hit the ball to a standing player who has a cannon for a shot I cringe when I see that...make them earn it u did....☺

    I think so many people are forgetting that all the pressure is on Marner now. He waited so long to sign that now he had to live up to that contract. If he doesn't he'll be booed out of the building. Let's see what the kid can do with this added pressure. Go Leafs!

    Avs fans, beat reporters, and Sakic & Co are all hoping for a longer term but obviously I think Rants can see multiple $$$ days if he signs a shorter term and then cash in just a few years down the road. We are going to be in big trouble starting in 2 years when we have to resign Landy, Gru, and Makar.

    NO TEAM HAS EVER WON A CUP WITH A SOFT GM - IT TAKES A HARD MAN TO MAKE HARD DECISIONS - TRADE THEM NOW AND STEP UP - IT WILL BE A BRILLIANT MOVE - GET THE BEST DEFENSEMAN YOU CAN IN A PACKAGE DEAL - THIS IS YOUR KWAHI LEONARD TYPE TRADE MOMENT DUBAS - DO NOT DROP THE BALL - YOUR CREDIBILITY IS ON THE LINE RIGHT NOW

      No you should blame Dubas. He is the one who gave them the money. He could have traded them or let them sit. There are primadonas no question but they are kids who deserve to be taught a lesson. He did not teach them that lesson (gave them exactly what they asked for).

    ASK YOURSELF WHAT YOU COULD GET TODAY FOR NYLANDER AND MARNER ON THE TRADE MARKET - NOT MUCH - ASK WHAT YOU WILL GET AT THE END OF SEASON WHEN MARNER NUMBERS ARE 6G + 12A AND NYLADER NUMBERS ARE 5 G 8 A - TRADE THEM NOW - DO NOT WAIT - WHATEVER YOU CAN GET - THIS IS THEIR CAREER HIGHEST TRADE VALUE - IT WILL ALL GO DOWNHILL FAST FROM HERE AND YOU WILL GET NOTHING FOR THEM AND HAVE TO SWALLOW 20 MIL PER SEASON - TRADE THEM BOTH FOR WHATEVER YOU CAN GET - NYLANDER WILL REPEAT LAST SEASON NUMBERS AND MARNER WILL FOLLOW SUIT

    EDM does seem to have bad luck with developing players. I've wondered for a while if it is a problem in the team. I mean how many players can show less talent than projected at the draft, or have break out years when traded before you wonder what the heck is going on?

    The only real losers are the luckless fools who continue to BET onSerina to win Grand Slam events!!! I BET for Osaka in NY in 18 and won BIG. The odds were lower this year but I vigorishly BET on Andreescu to win and I won. Next year Serena may actually be an underdog Longshot at 42 -1. Is there a sucker alive biting on those odds in 2020???I wonder whether VEGAS has posted new odds on who will break THE MAJOR record first Woods passing Nicklaus in golf OR Williams passing Court in tennis???Did VEGAS post odds on a prospective match between the effeminate and lilly-like Rodger Federer and the much BIGGER and more physically dominating woman's(?) champion Serena Williams???I am going way out on a John McEnroe limb on this an bet my house on Serena!!!She would probably wipe Mr. Clean out and off of the Forest Hills Court with the SWOOSH of her racket!!!She has NIKE in her nerves; and NIKE ink on her endorsement paycheck$$$ to BOOT(his white ass into the Hudson)!!!

      @John Cocktoasten You're blathering about epic managerial problems and forgetting what the Penguins were before they drafted Crosby. Selective memory, I guess. You can't judge Dubas on the decades before he became GM. Who cares what his age is. He's done a masterful job since he's been with the Leafs. And yes, I will compare the Leafs to the Penguins. There are a lot of similarities. Including "not being gritty".

    Defensemen defensemen like Hedman is better at defense than Burns and Karlsson, if this is a top 5 defensemen Hedman should be THE number one defensemen because he is the best at defending. You can put Phil Kessel on defense, make him score a couple of goals and go "waow look what good offensive defensemen Phil is", then him being a offensive defenseman you ignore his defensive number, while defensemen defensemen like Hedman can actually play the role. In my mind defensemen who can play defense while being good at both ends weighs higher in value, than offensive defenseman who can score a lot but cant defend as well. Hedman best defenseman, in this leaugue, right now.
