@FrycersGhost Is anyone going to watch the game tonight? Last night burned my eyes, and my heart.
4 hours, 48 minutes ago on Game 62 Scoring Chances: Canadiens 4 vs. Maple Leafs 0
Burke says he's rescinded his comment that Nate Silver was the smartest guy on the panel.
1 day, 1 hour ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
@Nylanderthal The team four years ago is nowhere near this team. You can't even compare. The "collapse" after that was literally ten minutes where things caught up to them and they lost to a far better team. If you want to hang your hat on those two so be it.
Clarkson killed every line he was on and had a major negative impact on the team. Was it all his fault? Of course not. But he was a massive problem and this is huge addition by subtraction.
1 day, 3 hours ago on Pete Deboer on where it went wrong with David Clarkson
@FloorHockeyFlopper At least until Tuesday. Don't be selfish. If Monday goes well we'll have a kick starter to send you back for draft weekend.
@MaxwellHowe @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 I'd like to see Phaneuf with Rielly/Gardiner to end the year. That will give me a better idea of where things stand. Think we'll be kicking ourselves if we don't see it for an extended look first before moving on. Team needs some legitimately good vets to play those kids with.
@rustynail @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 @TheLoovTrain Monday is like Christmas anyway! Although, are there gonna be any good trades left to make? Hopefully a nice Bozak gift from Santa.
@Savo43 @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 @TheLoovTrain I think they want to tank (/I know they want to tank) so my guess is no, probably not.
@rustynail @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 @TheLoovTrain Ha, just doesn't make sense to write one for Monday all things considered!
@MaxwellHowe @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 They've already traded Clarkson, Franson, Winnik, Santorelli and there's more to come. Get rid of Bozak and maybe Lupul and the product is as new as it gets in the NHL. They turned over nearly half the roster last year. They're close to doing it again already and we're not even at the draft.
@TheLoovTrain @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 I agree.
@Jay31 @Anthony Petrielli @TheLoovTrain Next Notebook will be Tuesday just breaking down everything that happened. I'd trade Bozak because they need to blow up the C position. If they can get value for Lupul I'd do that because he can't stay healthy. Then I'd try to add to what's left.
Expecting Nylander gets at least a cup of coffee next year, and depending on the draft you might get another player very close to playing too.
@Nylanderthal @Anthony Petrielli @MaxwellHowe @Jay31 He was playing in the top 9 and getting PP2 TOI. He blocked better players from playing more. There is a big ripple effect to all of that.
Think what you want though.
@Waiting4LSC @Anthony Petrielli @MaxwellHowe @Jay31 Not completely "no matter what" but yeah it's a no-brainer to keep Phil.
@TheLoovTrain @Anthony Petrielli @Jay31 People are mad the team is shit and want blood, so be it.
@TheLoovTrain @Jay31 Yup. Hard to find top 4 D.
@MaxwellHowe @Jay31 A large part, yes
@Dogger Yes. This is rookie GM stuff.
2 days, 7 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@vinoa They never had injuries on D last year
2 days, 8 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
@Dogger Really though, I saw Jack Hillen knock him on his ass. Jack Hillen! The only benefit of big forwards for him is they can win all the battles because he can't. He isn't big, doesn't play big, and can't win a battle.
UPDATE: Newly-acquired #CBJ F David Clarkson will wear No. 18.
Oh, not a play on Wendel Clark's number this time Davey!?
@GibsonLPStudio @Anthony Petrielli @Yaknowwhat Hey, it's not my money. I don't really care. But if I was the owner and a guy just readily blew $26M of my money? See ya.
2 days, 22 hours ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
@Yaknowwhat You are too kind
@GibsonLPStudio @Anthony Petrielli @Yaknowwhat Still a disgusting amount of money
@Yaknowwhat The contract was his fault in the first place... We don't care, but he still made a mistake that's going to cost MLSE another $26M still to come!
@Ze_theLeafsFan I know a few people, let's just say that
Nonis's press conference should just be him saying "Told you I wasn't worried about years six and seven", dropping the mic and walking away.
@hometeem @Anthony Petrielli I didn't. I just think it's funny that the hometown angle keeps getting brought up.
@Chris Jay @Anthony Petrielli (or do)
2 days, 23 hours ago on Leafs trade David Clarkson for Nathan Horton
Nonis said Clarkson regretted that it didn't work out in is hometown of Toronto, in part because he turned down more money elsewhere.
@Bruce Gamble Did he ever tweet this for every night they played David Clarkson and let him don the jersey?
@Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli @Beleaf67 @Luke_R @FrycersGhost My early fear is investing in a bunch of small guys BB. Need some weight, some heaviness to your team. Kadri, Nylander, Leipsic, Rielly, Gardiner isn't striking fear into anyone based on anything they do. As you said though, it's early.
3 days, 2 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Luke_R @Anthony Petrielli @FrycersGhost A lot of people just don't understand how the OHL works. If they did, they'd agree it's not that impressive.
Great businessman though.
@Beleaf67 @Anthony Petrielli @Luke_R @FrycersGhost They haven't done anything to be upset about yet, I'm just not going to get excited about them until they give me a reason to do so.
3 days, 3 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Luke_R @Anthony Petrielli @FrycersGhost Dubas, Hunter, etc.
@FrycersGhost The guy with the most NHL management experience is Dave Nonis. The track records of the other guys aren't very impressive once you dig into them.
@dlbu dlbu E @Anthony Petrielli They have Boston's number, I don't think anyone can deny that... But I think they got lucky Bishop got hurt in round 1. Lindback couldn't stop a beach ball.
3 days, 6 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@wiski @Anthony Petrielli @Potcy Their team is junk. I think it's hilarious how excited they are.
@KingTon @Anthony Petrielli @Dan39 @wiski They've been picking all the low hanging fruit. Would be like renovating an entire kitchen and complaining about the tablecloth. Need to see what they do with the walls, counter-tops, sink, oven, fridge and all that first.
But the clock is ticking. They haven't made one big move yet. Eventually waiting hits a point where it hurts you, and that point is coming sooner than later.
@KingTon @Anthony Petrielli @Dan39 @wiski I am giving them a chance... That's why I'm not ripping them in articles.
@wiski @Anthony Petrielli @Potcy If Winnipeg makes it I'll cheer for them I guess. To make matters worse the Habs are good... Well they suck too. But their record is good.
@17Forever @Anthony Petrielli I like De La Rose, for sure.
3 days, 7 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Final (major) rental sold, Bozak rumours pick up
@Dan39 @Anthony Petrielli @wiski Well, they need to invest in the right type of players. I see small skilled wingers so far, but it's early. This summer will be telling cause they need to start putting building blocks down.
@Potcy @Anthony Petrielli I don't enjoy cheering for them to lose and I don't want watch hoping for that goal. So not sure what I'll do.
@Reimocerous @Anthony Petrielli @wiski Do you honestly think I am unaware of this?
@Big Bad Bill I understand the process. I'd rather the team not be shit.
@Dan39 @Anthony Petrielli @wiski I'm not confident in this management group tbh
@wiski @Anthony Petrielli I really don't. Trading away rentals and people getting excited for 2nd round picks makes me sick. I'd like to see a winner.
@17Forever @Anthony Petrielli Tinordi sucks too
