    love it!!!!

    Haha I loved the guy Lavy but they way he left the team I'll never be able to get on board with. Basically did what he said he would never do and we didn't get so much as a 7th rounder at the end of the day. Pissed me off lol.

    Every big market team has the same budget, essentially. Anaheim has no reason to not match an offer, and Perry/Getz have no incentive to leave. Everything you liste makes sense for Toronto but no one elae
    A team looking to make the salary cap floor might welcome a cap hit of 4.5 and to be only actually paying 2.5.

    I can't argue with you that mackinnon is still probably the better choice, for what we are lacking at the moment, but i personally think we would be missing out in the long run. Jones and Reilly together would be a cornerstone to build a championship team.

    I literally laughed out loud when I read Mats Favre! I tried to explain it to my wife when she asked what was soo funny and she looked at me like I had three heads..

    No arguement. It's my opinion we need the centre in the long run. Every lethal team has a horse down the middle. MacKinnon's the only guy in the draft I'd take over Jones. But it's still months to the draft so opinions may change including mine. But yeah Seth Jones and Rielly would be a silly pair. Close to a 30 minute a night pairing if they develope properly.

    I've been saying this for a while but IMO Seth Jones >>>> anyone else in this draft. I understand that people want to pick a centre but i just want the BPA and the one that is most likely to play and succeed in the NHL, and Jones is that player IMO.

    We've been through tough times, man.

    We'll have to agree to disagree. I think MacKinnon's the guy and as much as I try to take my Nova Scotia bias out of it it's tough not to let a little shine through. Obviously the Leafs getting the kid would be the best possible scenerio for me personally. Another reason I like MacKinnon more.. check the DOB. Seth Jones is almost a full year older than MacKinnon and yet they're neck and neck. I doubt we end up with either but I'd be thrilled to have either one of them.

    Well at least we can agree in that either one would be a win.

    People change their minds. He was completely in his rights to do what he did. It also is a micro part of his entire career as one of the classiest members of this franchise's history.

    Mackinnon did not impress me much with Team Canada to be honest, but at the same time, it's not fair because he had 4th line minutes. I liked what I saw from Drouin a ton. Seth Jones is ****ing unreal, as of now, I take Seth Jones over Mackinnon. He's silky smooth, and everything you want in a defenseman. Seth Jones, Jake Gardiner, Dion Phaneuf, Morgan Rielly. That's the top 4 of the future.

    Question from Sens fan here. How long do you guys expect to be locked into the rebuilding process if you are indeed rebuilding? What I'm getting from some of you is "I want a full rebuild, but I don't want to do it for any longer than one season".

    100% correct, MacKinnon is the man for the future.

    The Leafs won't get any of these guys because they won't be bad enough to do it. In a season this short you never know, they could make the playoffs because of a single hot streak. I'd love a top pick too, but can't see it happen.
