    Not gonna lie... this hurts and it's gonna sting for a while. This guy was the face of our franchise.

    With that said, I get why he chose to sign with his home town team. They are young, talented, and on the rise. Tavares is a good guy and a great leader. I can't say I wish him the best because he's on a competitor now, but I don't have any malicious feelings toward him. So I won't say good luck in Toronto, but I will say thanks for the memories.

    Be real interesting to see how they fit everyone under the cap after next year with Matthews and Marner needing new deals, plus the huge holes they have on their backend. I'd imagine Nylander would be available for a dman now.

    I don't have a jersey. I do have a T shirt though.

    But I don't think I hate JT enough to go through the effort of burning it lol.

    Two Canadian NHL hockey teams now have a legit chance at the cup for the next few years.

    Yeah, call me when they actually do something. They sacrificed a lot in order to get JT, their D is still pretty much garbage and the team as a whole is softer than baby ****.

    That's the beauty of it, they didn't have to sacrifice anything, other than cap space.

    Islanders Goals Against: 293 (31th)
    Maple Leafs Goals Against: 230 (12th)

    It's much easier to acquire tougher linemates than skilled ones.

    They lost one of their top 2 way players in Bozak, their only big net presence with skill on the pp in JVR (bigger loss than people think imo) and the only balls they had (Polak, Komorov, Martin if you wanna count him).

    Theyíll still score a lot of goals but I just see them being a really good regular season team.

    Tavarez will fill in for Bozak just fine hahaha. No loss there. JVR was a blow but they have great wing depth. Keep in mind they could have fit his new salary into the cap but they have bigger plans for that money.

    Polak komorov and Martin are all names that leafs fans were begging to be moved all season. They look like grit on paper but in reality they are wasted roster spots for better players. None of those guys were successful in a shut down role last season. It's easy to pick up grit in the season if they need it. Hell, tell an AHL guy that the only way he's making the team is if he brings the grit and physicality and they'll do whatever is asked of them. Look at some of the Penguins grit over the years - all just guys trying to make the roster any way they can. I can't remember the last komorov or Martin they've had that wasn't a minimum salary.

    True enough but they still have a lot of holes to fill if they want to be Stanley Cup contenders. If Morgan Reilly were to get hurt, they are really screwed. Their D sucks.

    Only two teams in the NHL had a pair of defenseman with more than 50 points this season (Toronto,Nashville). Reilly just turned 24 and Gardiner just turned 28.
    Also Dermott, only 21, had an impressive rookie season.
