You spelled Noesen wrong. :P

On your point though yeah, I remember being happy that both re-signed last offseason and considered them fairly similar players. Amazing how Coleman took off and Noesen fell off a cliff

That's that 30% accounted for!

Shero basically gave them both "show me" deals and Blake did and Noesen didn't . In all honesty Coleman has been one of the nicest finds for me in a long while. I though he would be a player who played 30 games and was back in the minors. He is now one of my favourite players.

we can dream, damnit!

It also would be pure comedy for the Leafs to lose all of this talent they grew

Oh it would be amazing lol. But you know they’ll find a way to keep him. They’ll just trade Kadri or something.

Speaking of dreams , I saw on Twitter some speculation that Patrik Laine could be moved and the Devil's being mentioned. I can't see us having the resources to get that done, but who knows.

I wouldn't want to pay him.

That would be expensive.... probably too rich for our blood.

fvck that. And we already have palms streakyness. 

i will never understand the whole "streakyness" jab as some sort of insult lol

if a guy average 20 goals in a season that's pretty good... that means over 82 games... that he'll score every 4 games or so (kind of)... and if he average 30 goals... means he'll score every 2-3 games... which is even better

And of course when you can score multiple goals per game which makes the gap between each games with at least a goal even bigger.

So i simply don't understand the expectations really? lol if you get a cold streak... means there was a hot streak before... over the season its the same

(...) 

The problem is when you based your offense on a streaky player(s)... The whole team suffer from it as no one else is scoring..

well how does other teams does it? there's no 82 goals players in the league lol

Well if Laine scores 30g for the season and is putting up 5 in one game and 3 in a few others that doesn't exactly spread the rest of his scoring out or help in a majority of the other games. Yea ,cool, he scored 5 in a game. What about the other 82 games? You want to get scoring in those too. The prerogative is to win games, not beat the other team by x number of goals.

On a side note, Luke DeCock is one of the great names of all time. 

That’s either a porn name or an alias a celebrity uses to check into a hotel. I love it either way.

We have had a sh!t offense long enough, I’m not going to worry about how a 30 goal scorer spreads out his goals. Get me more 30 goal scorers and we’ll figure that sh!t out.

Then if Laine is the only goal scorer then you still lost? What is your point? We are talking about streaky scoring. It's still better to have it spread out then score 5 in a game and disappear for 3-4 weeks.

The issue with Laine is if he isn’t scoring goals, he’s borderline useless. I love his sniping ability and he can be fun to watch, but I’m not paying upwards of $9 million a year on a seven year deal AND giving up valuable assets for a guy who isn’t doing much of anything else if he isn’t scoring goals.

Exactly this.  He could also be putting up a tonne of empty netters which are uselss.

I'd much rather have a point per game player than a guy who scores 30 goals in 30 games and nothing in 52.

Kind of funny coming from you because you'd be the first person to make a meme with Laine fading in a picture like in Back to the Future or something the second he starts to become a passenger at 10m+ a season.

1) You overestimate my photoshopping skills, and

2) You are right and now I want him even more.
