Ok.. I just watched the latest PC from RW..

Maybe I'm drinking the koolaid... But I love this guy as our coach for the long term.

Honestly. We're all going to be pissed off most of the time this year because we're not winning, and the team can't keep up.

I said I would be willing to sit through 2-3 **** seasons for a long term successfull core. So I'll stand by that. While right now we don't really have any superstar prospects, I think we have enough to build a nice group of young players.

2 Years from now, we will all be thanking Cliff and Ron for what they are doing right now.

I agree, I get the same feeling. I think we have some good young pieces in right now who should be able to compliment a superstar or two in a few years. Ron Wilson will teach them hard work and two way play, and in a few years we'll draft some really good young players and we'll be ready to compete again.

I'm so excited (pineapple express...?)

Is Kulemin suppose to be in the starting lineup Thursday?

Any clues on what the lineup might look like?

I believe Kulemin won't be ready for Thursday but should be good to go Saturday against Montreal.

Are we even convinced that he is ready to play in the NHL right now?

Doesn't matter, RW said he's going to play the young guys a ton this year. He will be given lots of opportunity.

Any reports on whether Kulemin or Kubina are good to go or not?

This game will get really ugly

6-2 Wings

We have to expect the worst.

I just want to see the youth play a ton and develop well over the season. Like Wilson said... winning means dick all right now. Its all about proper development.

Grabovski will be a treat to watch. Hes really fun. There was ZERO players that were fun to watch last yr. Now we Grabs and Kully... possibly Tlustly as well with top 6 minutes. And Schenn of course if he sticks.

I'm probably a dork for remembering, but last year's opener I believe Antropov got a penalty to start the game. I'm calling a quick goal by the Wings.

I'm still hoping the Leafs win, despite the inevitable result this year.

I'm glad that a guy like Kulemin is going to get some unconditional ice time. I think Ron's coming out and saying that he's not concerned about winning was as much for the players' confidence as it was a statement for the media and fans. If we want any of these players to succeed, it's going to help a lot if they have some of their job pressure off. Now that we're out of training camp, I'm eager to see what our players will do with the license they've got from Wilson. We'll get a few mulligans but hopefully we'll start seeing the Mark Is and IIs this team needs to blueprint the future.

Kubina on Hockeycentral at noon says the def line-ups for tomorrow nights game are:

Kaberle, Schenn
Kubina, Colaiacovo
Van Ryn, Frogren

Looks like Stralman will start the year in the pressbox.

If its not about wins and losses and its about the process, then isnt part of the process to develop the younger players?

How is playing Van Ryn part of the process? If they are showcasing him for a trade, then playing him against the best team in the league may be a poor idea.

I would put money on them showcasing players at the early start at least.

If they could potentially get rid of Van Ryn I think they do.

A week ago Dreger was talking about Cola being up for grabs as well. He might be on the way out if they can find a decent trade partner.

Maybe Fletcher is still hoping to get Ryan out of Anaheim.

Well that's good. Does anyone know a better place to find a Leafs feed? I was told to check here for a feed because apparently they're legal now? Maybe I was misinformed. It sucks living in Vegas when you want to watch the Leafs.

man that's a shame that stralman won't be playing in the first game... i hope there isn't something wrong like an injury... if not, i fully expect him to be in the line up on sat...

i'm looking forward to finally seeing schenn play... it was hard to tell with the streaming... i've been impressed with him off the ice, handles himself well with the media and he certainly understands his role... but it's going to be a lot different in a real nhl game

I can't see any team being desperate enough to touch Van Ryn, maybe on recall for half.

Ugh.. If they aren't showcasing a healthy Van Ryn for trade, I don't know why they aren't playing Stralman.

2 days ago didn't Wilson say he's going to play the young guys as much as possible?

Any news on if Kulemin will be playing tomorrow? I am assuming he's not.

I read somewhere that a decision will be made on Kulemin today after practice. I dont know if that practice has happened yet, but over the last few days he's apparently looked game ready.
