I wonder if there will be an interest payment on your refund. I’m way less sure about junior but I don’t se how the AHL mean go.

Why would he scram when you keep giving him exactly what he wants?

I think he brings an important perspective to our discussions. Incels are people too, you know.

I'm thinking this is the case. Problem is, where does Nick play if he doesn't make the big team? Can he play in the AHL since the CHL season has been cancelled?
- PhilMcCracken


He's not eligible for the AHL (if they even have a season), it's either NHL or OHL. But maybe during these Covid times they might allow a little leeway for there to be a change, and allow all of a teams prospects to play in the AHL, if the team so chooses.

Which would be great.

It’s just too important for his development not to have him play with the big team. He did not look out of place and the cap hit is right

Apparently joe likes freddie

Joe Thornton on why he believes #Leafs can win: "I love their goalie. I like Freddie a lot. I think that was a big part of my decision, I think he's a great goalie."

Jason Spezza says he offered his No. 19 to Thornton but Joe declined.
``I have too much respect for him not to offer it,'' Spezza said via text.
Still, a nice gesture by Spezza.
``It really was,'' Thornton said via text. ``I couldn't do that to him. He really is a special guy.''

Corey Perry might be out of luck since #10 is retired.

Still can't wait to see what Roger thinks.

Imagine, now also having future NHL Hall of Famer tell him his opinion is awful.

Freddie is a good goalie, but by no means a great goalie and he's done little in the playoffs to negate this.

Imagine how much better he'd be if the team in-front of him wasn't pathetic defensively.

To be fair, Joe has been playing in front of guys like Indianapolis Jones and Auntie Niemi. Freddie is a big improvement.

Yeah no, part of that same notification was no fans, my annual payment carries over or I can request refund. 🤷‍♂️

Won't be much fun for the US division.
- Atomic Wedgie


Playing within divisions. If you have to be pinned anywhere in the states, the Pacific northwest probably isnt the worst spot to be.

Nice by Spezza but good JOe declined. Spezza is too established as a great veteran and was already on the team to take it.

Spezza said he has way too much respect for Thornton that he wanted to offer him the number, Thornton declined because he has too much respect for Spezza. I like our leadership group a lot now more..

Will be a lot of Thornton and Simmonds jerseys sold to all the young kids. Those two plus rielly, Hyman, snake and muZzin are much better role models than mitchie, underwear Matthews and Willie the floater..

If you're smart in investing money you never buy an expensive jersey that belongs to a 41 year-old on a 1 year deal.
