    Bingo. If we sucked last year, the expectations for this year would be a whole lot more tempered. That said, I'm glad we did make the show last year. Really was a remarkable season.

    Zacha to 1C would really, really be a pro-tank move. The last thing I want is for Zacha to destroy Hall and Palmieri's seasons. I'm done with Zacha, as far as gifting him minutes in the hopes of him figuring it out.

    I honestly think he'd be a perfect acquisition for a playoff team looking to add depth for a long playoff run. Andy Greene is a more than capable 5-6 defender at this point imo. It's honestly the best option we have with him - we can spin the whole "giving a veteran guy one last chance to win". Assuming we retain at least 1/4 of his cap hit I think he's easily movable. This is Shero's only move that doesn't result in awkwardness/hurt feelings, assuming Greene stays healthy. He cannot be on the team next year and I trust Shero understands that. I doubt he wants to have to strip the C and buy him out.

    I think this is a fantastic piece, and it's what I've been wanting for the past.. month and a half. This is, more or less, acknowledging that we're going to let what happens happen. Or in other words, I think this is about as pro-tank as you're ever going to hear from Shero. Which is fine in my mind - it makes these awful, embarrassing losses at least tolerable. Knowing there's a vision here makes it easier to stomach. Also, yeah, pretty blunt about Cory. Essentially "we've done all we can do, time to put up or shut up".

    Maybe us peasants will luck out and Shero will decide to grace us with some statements during the next couple days off.

    And in other news, Zacha now has 0 points in the last 8 games (25+ goals scored during that time I believe). ~1 SOG per game as well. I find myself harboring an unhealthy disgust towards this kid. I should probably seek some help about that.

    Offer sheet Matthews - Toronto is forced to match. Offer sheet Marner - Toronto cannot feasibly match. Profit.

    2018-19 Around the League Thread

    I'll be very surprised if any GM has the balls to offer sheet Matthews. By all means, a team or two SHOULD offer sheet him. This situation pretty much defines what offer sheets were designed for.. but GMs don't want to risk the status quo. You could really fvck the Leafs over for a long time with a 12 x 7 offer sheet. They either lose their star player (and the fans lose their mind) or they face the impossible task of keeping that roster together with a huge cap hit for Matthews. Maybe a young guy might have the stones. Chayka with the Yotes might do it, especially since you could spin the whole "bringing Matthews home" narrative.

    Pretty much repeating what I said in the GDT, but I thought Cory played well enough to win last night. He got royally screwed by his teammates on three goals, and one was the definition of a seeing-eye shot. The guy is probably the unluckiest player in the NHL right now. He looked slow on the 3rd goal, and was predictably terrible in the shootout. But I'm choosing to be encouraged.. slightly encouraged. He probably wins more often than not if he plays like he did last night imo. I know the stats don't support it, though.

    I'd expect to see that at the Peewee level and be like "oh jeez, that's a stupid play but kids are gonna be kids. They'll learn." This is a 36 year old NHL veteran who thought swinging north-to-south to bat the puck out of the air at his own net was the right play.
