I dont blame anyone for wanting out of Calgary, that doesnt mean he's good though


He seems to rise in the playoffs which is good enough for me to take a chance on him......I still think he could be a top 6 player and leftwinger on the Leafs.....highly skilled hockey player and just needs a change of scenery.

he's had incredible puck luck for a handful of games that just happened to be in the playoffs. If he was half that good he wouldnt look so utterly mediocre the rest of the time. He'd be an ok redemption project, but he simply makes too much money and isnt worth moving out better players to do that for.

Kerfoot is a player to help you get to the playoffs, Sam Bennett is a player to help you get through the playoffs

Palmieri is playing awful and is a bigger floater than anyone you have accused here of being a floater.


Well, that’s a new one

Yes, the point is that none of the people he called floaters are floaters

-Right, the Leafs would laugh if they saw these trades. They know how stupid they would be
-If you know what flames games looked like, you will know Bennett is having a bad season and is being carried by better players when he isnt invisible (ask any fan other than you)
-Wilson floats when he cant board people and get suspended
-Leafs have beaten the Canadians twice as often as they've lost while they played "playoff hockey"
-This team is 100% worse than the Leafs current team

take it from me, I'm a Leafs fan and I know. Roflcopter


Bennett is not having a bad season of being carrierd. Hockey is more than stats. He had a bad 5-7 games, but since then has been a more than effective top 6 player. Driving play well, creating chances, etc.

Kerfoot is better but your claims about Bennett, the Flames and how the city of Calgary is trash and you don’t blame Bennett for wanting out (below), are simply false at best.

But Palmieri is not a floater at all. I mean....its like the opposite of how he is normally described.
He is normally among team leaders in blocked shots, hits, takeaways, shots, goals. He drives the net, mixes it up behind net, plays with chip.

But 100% not a "floater"
