The overriding sentiment from Nonis and re-signing players is if players want to play here and we value them, he will make a fair market contract offer and it is the player to decide if they want to return.

This goes for Bozak, Kessel, Phaneuf, Fraser, Kadri, Orr, anyone....

So we we will make offers for players that are pieces for us, cut bait with deadweight ie. Liles and Grabo and see where the chips fall.

If a player is outrageous in their demands, they will be traded or cut loose.

No it counts the first 2 rounds. If we went through and lost to the Rangers, we'd be picking at the same spot.

That's the sens ei got from it. He will offer contracts that make sense. He's not going to overpay just to keep someone here.

My take is that Bozak isn't a top priority to resign, we will move on if he asks for too much. I like Bozak, but fact of matter apart from faceoffs there is nothing exceptional and he simply downt deserves north of 3 million a year. His stats are padded with Kessel, even there he lags way behind him. His defensive play is attentive, but he's undersized and not effective on the walls. His playmaking is okay, again having Phil is a real clouding factor. His hockey IQ is quite good, and he's okay on the PK. I'm not resigning Tyler because he can win some draws. Kadri is ready to move up, Grabo isn't get bought out and Colborne is moving from IF to WHEN.

I hope nonis makes smart moves, and dont hit the cap ceiling... Having space for next year will be key, sure other teams will have to make trades if they wanna stay under cap.

I hope we dont go hard on fa, and instead pick players we want from cap struck teams, and get them for cheap.

Bozak is going to cut his hair

Edit: Bozak said he would love to stay, enjoys playing with Kessel, and Kessel enjoys playing with him.
Hopefully his contract demands aren't outrageous, I would like to see him back.

I'm always impressed whenever Nonis has a press conference to deal with the media and address the public.

He always handles himself professionally, answers questions asked honestly, articulately and comes across as a true professional.

He handled the difficult collapse issue with grace and faced the music accepting accountability and promising necessary changes of improvement as a result.

All this making Nonis easy to like as the voice of the franchise in how he conducts himself representing the voice of the Leafs.

A little better than Lowe and macravish eh.

I think leafs will be checking in on Weiss first and foremost. Ontario boy, much more offensively gifted then bozak, slight improvement on faceoffs.

Personally I'd like to see grabs moved, Replaced with Weiss. Weiss is an improving in every facet of grabos. Except maybe durability.

Can you imagine the abusive tone and confrontational responses and outbursts to the collapse questions had they been handled by another, other than Nonis today?.

Nonis almost turned obvious disappointment, into sympathy from the media by addressing the issue honestly. There was no ammunition provided today for any retaliatory\retribution future articles when reporting on this PC, as no reason was giving to antagonize the media by battling them publicly.

I love how Nonis never truly reveals his cards, just that he'll do whatever he can to improve the team, whether that means signing Bozak, or not, trading for a goalie etc.

Nonis said he would like to capitalize on teams having cap troubles and use that as leverage for a trade.

This is how I felt as well when watching him during the press conference .

He was very measured and forth coming . I didn't expect him to be too specific about player moves outside of making general comments but I do find it interesting how he keeps mentioning that no one is untouchable .

That actually speaks to his Business IQ as he doesn't provide sound bites that can come back to bite him when he speaks generally, rather than specifically when answering questions asked as he answers them honestly.

He doesn't dodge nor avoid them, simply responds politely and as best he can without painting himself into a corner in the future for unfulfilled promises.

Lost in the Nonis comments was he left it wide open to do anything, sign other UFA's, moves in trades, or stand pat. One thing is for sure for those posters that don't pay attention to the cap going down, is bad contracts may and will be moved off this team. We know 1 for sure, that will be on the bubble. A 5.5 bubble.

Mess,


What are some things you think Leafs management will do this offseason?

I.E. Bozak, Grabo, cap space, defencemen, and goalie situation.

Indeed, I've got a lot of hope for what he can do with the team. He seems very level headed and patient.

He's not going to tell the world Grabo is not worth 5.5 or he loves Bozak, he's a GM and he has to play it close to his chest. He wants assets for Grabo, and he wants to Bozak to be reasonable.

One comment he said prior to the playoffs that he let slip, he said they didn't think Bozak was miscast as a #1C or top #2 C when the interviewer asked him is Bozak miscast on this team.

The guy is doing his best GM hat right now, good for him, don't tip your hand.

Actually Nonis commented specifically praising certain player(s) effort given in the playoffs, and we all know who that was referring to in part without naming names as Nonis didn't either.

Two things he said in particularly that struck home for me..

1) He is not in a position today to deal high draft picks nor prospects for older immediate help, but rather plan to continue his building up instead patiently.

2) Touching on "play the kids", as he specifically stated that he has to provide NHL roster room for prospects and Marlie development players, providing them opportunities to prove and advance as his team building method.

These all speak to patience and a focus on drafting and developing to fuel improvement as opposed to looking for quick fix solutions and shortcuts.

I'm 100% on board with this mentality, as he doesn't feel the need to spend to the cap upper limit just because he has money and space available, when cost effective internal options may present themselves that better serve long-term plans.
