trade Marner for Dumba and picks. you save 5M per.
use it to sign a UFA RD (Brodie, Tanev, Gudas, Hamonic...).

Rielly - UFA RD
Muzzin - Dumba

Please, God - no.

Bit of a down season for the Leafs, if we’re being honest, not surprised they didn’t get much individual attention. Some darn good players on that team though.

A big social media poopstorm followed that Aug 6th press brief ...and as a result they conducted another open QnA with the Doctors ....

Mulligan: Hi, Dr. Yaffe. I was hoping you could clarify a comment that you made on Thursday. It’s causing quite a furor on social media. I asked you about why teachers wouldn’t be tested in schools as a precautionary measure, and you responded by saying in part that just under 50 per cent of tests in low risk areas were false positives. Could you explain that further for me, because I really don’t understand. Are you saying that in areas that are out of hype zones that there are a lot of false positives?

Dr. Yaffe: So, yes, I understand that there’s some lack of clarity. We are talking about a test that is a screening test, basically. And so we’re testing… If we are testing people who we have a population that has no COVID or very little prevalence is extremely low, and you test somebody, and you get a positive… Actually, in fact I think over 50 per cent of those positives will be false positives.

So in those instances, there’ll be a second test recommended. The second test will often then be negative. So that will be ruled out as a case. If the second test is positive, then it will be considered a case. If the test is done in a population where there is COVID as the prevalence or how commonly infection is goes up, the positive predictive value of the test goes up. So that is, what are the chances if you have a positive test, what are the chances that that person actually has the infection? The chances go up as the prevalence of the infection goes up. So it depends on how common the infection is, and it also depends on the.. How good the test is, the sensitivity, specificity. So we have a pretty good test. But if we’re doing it in a population where COVID is rare the positive predictive value is very low. That’s why it has to be repeated, and if it’s false, it will not be reported in iPHIS. It will not be counted as a case.

Mulligan: OK. Thank you. So I’m assuming it’s not falsely inflating the numbers.

So apparently Leafs players can't skate in team facilities in the summer, but Elias Pettersson can work out at Rogers Arena.

FFS, just cancel the franking rule. Let players skate wherever the frank they want.

I'm sure his Wife or GF have heard all about and advised, that's what Hockey Buzz is for. It's so unjust Petey's allowed to skate FFS. Contact Gary or Bill.

Maybe the Leafs were absent because they were adhering to all social distancing protocols? I for one appreciate that the Leafs are taking this virus seriously. .

Well yeah but the format was a joke. Sucks to lose a qualifier but you have to take it with a grain of salt. The best hockey teams werent in the top 16, the 16 teams best at getting their poop together after 4 months were.

You're walking with a gun. Theres is always someone you could shoot. There's probably not too many who would want to eat the meat though.

Good read, I liked how it mimicked a lot of the things I've been saying. 😉

I particularly liked the section on the timing of a Pietrangelo signing not being there for the leafs... That horn can't be blasted enough.

"Signing Alex Pietrangelo would ignore the Leafs’ biggest problems."

The first line of the tweet is already wrong.

Signing him literally solves the Leafs biggest problem. A RD. And not just any RD, an all World RD.

The premise is that the biggest leaf problem is needing more than one player, even more than one defenseman.

How Tampa and Dallas are getting secondary scoring, and the leafs got squat outside of the top end. Depth killed them this year more than missing any one guy. Going all in on one player restricts the ability to have that depth even further... And leaves them screwed if injuries hit or the top guys don't produce.

It was a decent read. 4/5 stars, would recommend.

Disagree strongly with this. Depth is a combination of high paid talent and a good and well stocked talent pool of picks and players found outside North America. The Rangers spent a sh!tload of money on Panarin and he compliments the mix of veterans that are very well paid and the rookies and talent that are not getting paid yet. With Lafreniere and Kakko and very solid goaltending, the Rangers will be contenders for many years. Leafs need to add that D-man - similar to Rangers adding Trouba and also need to find a goalie that doesn't let a subway train between his legs when it counts the most.

Sign Pietrangelo.

Rielly-Dermott
Sandin-Pietrangelo
Muzzin-Holl
Lehtonen

3 solid D pairings.


Make the bottom-6 forward group more defensive minded. Even if they don’t score, they at least won’t get scored on either.
