Anyone notice that half the players on this team were drafted/ brought over by the previous regimes. Found that interesting.
That's not surprising, it's only been 3 years since Nonis was canned and 4 since Shanahan took over.

Ya, and the core is mostly made up of new players from this regime.

Matthews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly, Andersen

Rielly is the only one from the Nonis/Burke days.
Baaaaaaaaa!

well there's still Kadri, Bozak, JVR, Gardiner from the main roster. But as for draftees I wouldn't expect a new regime to ship out prospects since most need 3-4 years to develop.

Yes, but if you want to identify the core of the team, it's Matthews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly, and Andersen. Everyone else around them are replaceable.

Unless we get a crazy offer, I'd rather keep Bozak and JVR for our playoff run.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Damn this loss against the Blues HURTS! :( Less than a minute away from winning and we let in a goal and then in OT we get a breakaway chance don't score and the Blues comeback the other way the next play and score and win. Really sucks that the Leafs are so poor in closing out games.

And also what happened to our offense!? We can't score worth a damn these days while our defense has improve compared to the beginning of the season. Really sucks that we can't get both going at the same time. :/
Toronto sports teams..............forever cursed. Profound sadness. :(
