Bio not provided
I get to watch only 1 game a week and thats saturdays game. Truly disappointed at the lack of interest from the team as a whole. No interest, no hustle, no heart! Absolutely unacceptable!
I watched that PP and saw Franson change with Gardiner come on but Phaneuf stayed on. They went up the ice and puck comes out of bostons zone but Phaneuf still doesnt change. Then you see Phaneuf as tired as hell with the washer woman 1-handed stab at the puck. Pathetic! Im a Phaneuf supporter but that was selfish when he dont change like hes supposed to. Gardiner dont seem right somehow. He can usually outskate anyone but watching that defenceman skate past him with ease was shocking. I turned the sound off so i didnt have to hear the announcers.
Sending Percy down is a mistake imo. They need to make some changes and get some real character players that play with heart. This team is sinking fast. Tired of it!

@Fish Head Carlyle= no 4th line

GO LEAFS GO! Just win baby!
@Whalz Well then why are you making comparisons with Dion? Why not stick to what you post is about. You are comparing apples to oranges. Dion is a top defenceman and by your words, Franson is not. No comparison.

@Whalz This is about Franson not Dion. Thats what your post is about right?
@Whalz How many points did he put up on the PP in the last game playing #1 PP?
@thakilla93 @LeafsForLife Im not surprized about that one. Hoping something changes with Leafs like that. Need to shake things up. Its kind of stagnant in the line-up. Sometimes its like there's no heart.

Anyone think the Oilers and Leafs have a potential for a trade any time soon? And for whom?
@mike_84 yes it was nice that he didnt let in the first shot on net for a change.
1 week, 5 days ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
The Leafs will continue to get better but there are still bumps in the road. Hopefully they will play a 4th line more. I dont like this 5 minutes a game thing Carlyle is still doing. Kozun should definitely be utilized much more. Love Percy. Should have made the team last year. Our young defence looks very good for the future.
Thanks for summary Alec. Great job!

@B_Leaf I dont think Staal would waive for T.O. I dont think he wants to play here. I can see him staying where he is or going to join his other brother in NY.
As always Anthony, fantastic job! Happy to have the Notebook back again! It was a long summer!

@ninepaces2 first shot always goes in...
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Game Day: Game #3, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New York Rangers (7 p.m., City TV)
Please dont be injured Optimus! We need to win this!
@Savo43 Raising his trade value. Go Franson GO!
The hockey gods have spoken! It was a bad call!
I will love it if our goalie can stop the first shot on net tonight. Getting tired of watching bad goals from bad angles go in on the first shot.
Thank you alec for summary. Great job! i think you nailed it on the head about gardiner and bozak need to win atleast 1 of the puck battles, however, jvr was still out of position and needed to be better too. I also agree about bernier. he needs to make atleast 1 game saver and we didnt get anything close to that tonight. really like the work of kozun and percy. we will get them next time.

Wish Colton Orr all the best wherever he ends up! Did a great job for us all these years but that time has passed. Hope someone will get him on their team soon. Good guy!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Maple Leafs cut Colton Orr, Fraser McLaren, William Nylander; Roster down to 23

@mike_84 @TOHockeyNut i would rather have granberg over leddy
@wiski @LeafsForLife they should be. pitt will claim 1 of them.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #9, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Red Wings 1
@wiski was Orr and FML put on waivers?
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @LeafsForLife my landlady is being not-so-nice and has had the cap lowered right down to the minimum and is making me pay through the nose for anything over what she deems is more than she would use for utilities, cable, and internet. plus i have to pay extra for insurance as it went up because im here.
my kids are not working atm, and in college/university, so ive been paying their rent food etc. dont have twins!
life goes on
Good job Declan! Thanks you for the summary.
Leafs looked much better last night. Great way to build expectations for that first night.
Can someone tell me is the first game on cbc? I cant stream it and dont have anything but basic cable.
@wiski i think he should wear an alfredsson nose.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Bye Bye Carter?
I would think they are keeping orr and fml around for when they have to do waivers before the season starts. i dont think either of them will be around for 1st game of the season.
@Bernier_The_Boats Best post in a long time! Well said!
There are uses for pot bellies though. Mine provides shading for the toolbox.

Hey Guys! Going to do my first draft pool tomorrow in like 25 years. lol. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for sleeper picks? Or maybe possible rookies that will likely make their team?
Any help would be appreciated.

@Burtonboy What are we talking about here? i scrolled down but didnt see anything. please explain?
@Bring the Cup Home I think Verhaeghe will stand out too. He was getting a lot of chances last camp but missing the net. This camp the jitters will be less and he will look great!
