Awesome win for the Leafs!


Three things stood out for me;


Gardiner played a very solid game

Kadri was playing more aggressive

Bozak had a very solid game on both sides of the puck.


GO LEAFS GO!

@buds17 The poiint of saluting the fans was lost. It was only done after a long fought battle in the playoffs, Or after the last game of a good season. I watched them waving their sticks in the air after a win and talking to each other rather than focusing their attention on actually saluting the fans. It seemed robotic at best. In a way im happy they have stopped.

I honestly think its time to change the coach and GM. They had their time and its not working. New faces are the way to go. Carlyle didnt make it work last year, he changes his "system" this year and its no different.


The GM has made questionable moves since taking over for Burke. Very few good moves. Time to change that too. Need a GM that can steal some players and make things happen. Where the players know they are going to be held accountable or their ass is grass and the GM is the lawn mower. 


Time for a change

@Cameron19 @LeafsForLife @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat Appreciate that. I agree. Fix the problem and stop bitching about it. They should stop signing older players that just take up space. Let the kids come in and learn. Live through the growing pains but atleast its doing it right.


As for Kessel, Gilmour is the same size pretty much and i never saw Gilmour stop skating to avoid getting hit. Kessel needs whatever that is called imo. Testicular fortitude comes to mind. If he got hit a few times it would maybe get him going and he would lose that fear. But getting him a centre that will go into the corners and do that kind of work would solve the problem. Agreed.

@Cameron19 @LeafsForLife @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat The thing is Cam, is that players can have all the skill in the world and you put them all on the same team its not a guarantee they will be able to win together. So you put guys in the mix that bring the "buzzwords" as you call them. Those are must players on any team. I have not ever on this site called anyone or any player a "pussy" or a "bitch." I also dont have a scapegoat player of the week. I just dont see the emotion, another buzzword?, for this team. Where's the passion? The only player that comes close is Leo. Now we need those kinds of players with the higher skill level. Im not disagreeing with you on needing better players, but i think you have it wrong if you think words like "passion" "heart" "emotion" are just meaningless buzzwords. I also dont think Wendel was a God but i know what he brought to the game every night, when he wasnt on the IR, and this team could use a lot of it.

@Cameron19 @LeafsForLife @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat You dont have to say anything more Cam. You win. Youre stuck in what you believe and wont change your mind. I get it. Its like those who are stuck on blaming everything on Dion. They wont change their opinion either. Oh well.

@Mcost61 @LeafsForLife @Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat I dont think you win like this in any era. They need some big really quality changes. But the changes they made in management in the off-season wasnt complete. They MUST change the GM and the Coach. Start the Shanny era with fresh faces.

@Cameron19 @LeafsForLife @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat Mayhaps, but on this team, they sure dont bring it. You cant play with heart sometimes. You either bring it or you dont.

@Cameron19 @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat Dont disagree with you often Cam but not having anything to do with leadership and most especially Heart, is wrong. I agree with missing too many pieces. They lack a lot of heart on this team. Too many people that dont play with enough emotion. Give me Wendel, Killer, G. Roberts, and even Darcy Tucker to what we are getting now. This is awful to watch!

@wiski @LeafsForLife The whole team is booting the can can, whatever that is, not just dion. His contract has nothing to do with how the TEAM is doing right now. Youre just hating on him. Beating him up while hes down, with the rest of the team. I guess the conversation is over. Enjoy your hating.

@wiski @LeafsForLife Agreed. But taking the C from Dion isnt shaking anything up. Its pointing the finger at 1 person. 1 person is not responsible. Its a FULL TEAM problem. Make some trades AND take the C. But cant just do 1 without the other.

@wiski OK. Stripping the C from Phaneuf will NOT change anything! There is nobody on this team that can take the C and make a difference. Changing captains will NOT fix the problems on this team.


You can hate on Phaneuf all you want but honestly it wont fix anything stripping the C. Move onto something new.

@Ze_theLeafsFan The problem with this is that the league draws the #'s behind closed doors. They would likely fuck us over.

@traNsplantEdneWfie A new captain isnt going to change the heart of this team. Its just not there. They need some Gilmour's, Clark's, Robert's, Messier, kind of heart for this team. Then they will start to win and compete every night. Right now they know how to give up and be complacent.

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!

@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.
