    I would of agreed with the JVR at center idea before last year,
    but now that they have brought in so many centers I don’t think this is in the cards.

    One idea might be to put Clarkson on a line with Kessel. Kessel carries the puck , Clarkson has enough size, and he would be a good guy to be standing in front when Kessel was shooting,

    Kadri is our best center so he should be centering the line. Now I know Clarkson would have to change wing but I cant see that being a big deal if he does carry or distribute the puck.
    Clarkson Kadri Kessel
    JVR Bozak Lupul

    anyway it couldn’t hurt to try this…..

    An authorized biography is written with the permission, cooperation, and at times, participation of a subject or a subject’s heirs.

    In an authorized biography, the author typically holds exclusive interviews with the subject of the book, the subject’s family members and friends, co-workers, etc. The author is privy to information only attainable from the subject of the book.

    In many cases, that person or their heirs may have editorial control. They can have input in what stories are used and can even decide to omit some damaging information.

    So Teemu’s “unauthorized biography with support” likely means that Teemu did participate in some exclusive interviews, but the book is significantly based on other sources and Teemu did not have editorial control.

    Thanks for answering my question guys. Adam I just want to say I agree with you, I’d never ask a player or coach to lose on purpose.

    I like the idea of having Kessel, Lupul and JVR on the same line but if they’re going to convert a winger to center I’d like to see it be Kessel. When he crosses the blue line with the puck he puts the defense men on their heels. Giving a player that explosive, skilled and creative the options and space that center ice provides would, I think, only make him and that line more effective.

    Questions please….

    Feschuk: does Kessel hate all the Toronto coaches?

    Simmons: When do you expect the collapse to start this year?

    Petri Kontiola: I don’t know

    Damien Cox:
    Are the Maple Leafs keeping Randy Carlyle so they
