You never would've been in that position in the first place, if you didn't put yourself in that position.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

Raymond and Bolland helping to put pts in the standings so far, and that's the most important thing this time of year.   It'll make it easier on Carlyle to manage his beat up players in the winter.

How's JVR doing?     Clarkson back soon too.    Toronto wants to make some noise it seems.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs are hands down the most injured team this season. And the suspension has made the cap hard to work with. They needed to get cap relief when they put players on IR to get it to work, and only by a few thousand dollars!

Players that have missed games
David Clarkson (Suspension)
Fraser McLaren
Mark Fraser
Nikolai Kulemin
Joffrey Lupul
James Van Riemsdyk
Jay McClement (Baby)

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

Jvr is minor injury from what I hear, clarksons back oct.25th, the big decision is wether to send rielly down, 2 assists tonight.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

Rielly better not go down. He might be the best Dman on the team (his +/- may be a bit down from Franson giving it away twice for goals in one game). The argument that he needs to go down for confidence vs his own age is BS. He has plenty of it right now.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

The leafs proved they have mad Forward depth. But is that true on D? They can't really bring up Liles due to cap reasons and noone else outside the current top 6 plus the injured Fraser are "proven". I honestly would not be surprised if someone is traded due to this cap issue. Top targets to go would be the expiring Kulemin and Bozak.

True, I can't see how playing the jr tournament in sweden will make a huge difference.

Actually the Leafs can still loan him to the Canadian National Junior Team before he plays his 41st game. That would be around world junior times. Odds are that he won't play though. Carlyle didn't let Fowler go.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

If he's ready to play up here, then he's ready, he was chosen #5th overall, I heard some scouts saying that he should have gone first.

Re: Toronto Maple Leafs

When Clarkson comes back, things will get even better, that's not to say they don't start losing, but the overall team, becomes a better playoff team. There's always the option of trading reimer for a much needed asset, that's something they could always explore, things are looking up for once.
