Speaking of enforcers, the Oilers claimed Steve MacIntyre off waivers today, lol. Our 4th line could be pretty hilarious with Mac, Mike Brown and Ben Eager. Quite the goon squad.

Good to see them clamp down on Kessel over his stick work. That boy's gotta learn to stop swinging his lumber before he hurts someone.

I was shocked it was only for the pre-season, to be honest. As a Leafs fan, I'm happy about it. As a hockey fan, I'm not convinced it was enough.

 

As for enforcers, I think they need to stay for now. However, they also need to remember their job.

Pretty much. He knows that this is hockey and not baseball, right?

I was fine with both suspensions....First whack was understandable from kessel but second definitely went too far even considering the circumstances.

While, I can somewhat understand the initial reaction of striking out irrationally with whatever item you have at hand, when someone who is approximately one foot taller and 80 pounds heavier than you suddenly jumps you, I still cringe every time I watch "modern" hockey players swing their sticks in the manner in which Kessel swung his the other night - and in the previous game against Philly. 

 

There is simply no justification for that. It needs to be stopped. It's a habit they need to get out of ...

Agreed. Maybe Shanaban will take someone and make an example out of them and give them a massive suspension. We've already seen I think 6 or 7 and the season hasn't even started yet.
 
Actually here you go. 

Total Suspensions: 7 - 4 including only preseason games
Total games suspended: 25 regular season and 16 preseason games
Total salary forfeited: $329,359.00

Definitely not enough to scare any player into not doing something like that again.

8 mill a year for 8 seasons for Phil Kessel? Well, I can now safely predict the Leafs won't win a Cup till at least 2022. :lol:

At least they have the equivalent of most of his raise coming off the books next year. They'll finally stop having to pay Tucker and Armstrong ($1 million each) and Scrivens and Frattin's retained salaries will be gone (total of $500k.)

 

Besides, if the Leafs didn't do it, somebody else would have. Agreed it was too much, though.

8mil is pretty much the going rate for scorers of his calibre. It's the term I don't like so much, not the cap hit.

Yeah, if Toronto didn't pay him the 8M a season, someone else would have. But I also agree I'm not a fan of long term contracts, personally I think they should max at 5 years and not at 8. The player has a bad couple of years during the first half of the contract and the team gets impatient and just buys them out. Similar to what happened to Lecavilier and Bryzgalov.

On another note, watching the game between Leafs and Senators atm and I have to say I am really surprised with how much chemistry the Bolland/Raymond/Brodie line has had so far. I'm also looking forward to the Oilers/Canucks game after this one. I'm willing to bet there will be some goons out there after what Eager had said earlier in the week saying Edmonton was going to target Vancouver's skilled players after the Gagner incident.

Well, by too much I didn't mean just the money. I have never liked contracts over 5 years.

 

Also, Leafs are 3-0-0 to start the year. I can honestly say I didn't see that one coming.

Hot start means nothing. They started 4-0 the year of the epic collapse under wilson. But of course wins are better than losses, but they need to improve their defensive play (as usual)

I agree it means nothing. But who can honestly say they thought it would happen? Especially considering how they've played, which is to say, not well.

Speaking of hot starts, I'm surprised to see Calgary win and play as well as they have been.

I won't deny it. I laughed at that. I was pleasantly surprised (for lack of a better term) that he let the goal go to Raymond. It reminds me of Sundin when they tried to credit him with an assist he didn't earn and he argued about it.

Lol.

 

Very scary to see 2 similar plays happen to both Kronwall and Boyle. Lapierre got 5 games for his hit and McLeod has an in person hearing to determine his fate. I was very surprised to see Lapierre only get 5 games for it. I hope Boyle and Kronwall are both back healthy soon.
