@MaxwellHowe Ok i dont mind the other stuff but to talk about game 7 like that is wrong. Ive said it so many times on this site. Ill say it again. The Leafs were losing 3-1 in games. Riemer's goaltending brought them back. They ran out of gas in game 7. It wasnt an ultra failure like the media portrays it and the mindless believe, it was an accomplishment that there was a game 7. Should be happy with that team. Its what has come, or has not come since that game 7 that should be concerning.

Hmm, 3 goals against in 1 period, maybe its not Jake Gardiner after all

@Dogger we dont know if gardiner has reached his plateua. Its just easy to beat up on a guy when hes down.
Lupul is bigger than eberle so we get smaller doing that. But eberle is a good young talent.
Im not sure about kane. I think the jury is still out on him. I dont think he likes winnipeg though.

@Whalz Hes not worth 5-6mil per year. Trade him now. We will get way more for him while he is playing decent. Its his contract year and the guy is going to wanna cash in and next year he will suck. Trade high while we can.

@Savo43 @TheLoovTrain Shipping out Gardiner too soon is a mistake. Last year everyone was shipping out Franson. Now everyone is keeping Franson and wants everyone else to believe it was what they thought all along.
@Edward_Flannery @LeafsForLife Yes agreed. Komarov is my favorite Leaf and it was my bad for forgetting him. He Loves the Leafs as well. Got in trouble wearing his Leafs sweater when he was playing overseas. That was epic!

@Dangle_My_Berries @LeafsForLife Yes very good point.
I think something that is missing in this is the mention of leadership. Surprizing?
Robidas, Winnik, Booth, Santorelli, i think have a big hand in the team playing better, coming back for wins, maintaining leads in 3rd period, and allowing Phaneuf to play so much better. He is learning to lead from those guys and this is helping his play on the ice too.
@Bring the Cup Home @Fish Head @Jay_Berg Wont ever see a trade like that again for the Leafs unless we BBB

@Jay_Berg I think we would regret trading Gardiner. Give him more time to see what he becomes. Remember last year Franson sucked dirty ass hole. Never know what will happen with Gardiner yet. Just give it time.
Kadri learning defensive side of the puck is great. Gilmour played it like that for years. Looking good for the future.
Great job as always Anthony! Quite enjoyable to read the notebook with an xtra large English Toffee.

Nothing better than a Leafs win on a night honoring Pat Quinn, together with a pair of Smurfs losses to Sabres, and 2 b2b losses for turds as well. Awesome!

@Cameron19 Yes i think we had 1 of those last year against the Pens in Pittsburg. I believe the winning goal was scored by Malkin interfering with the goalie.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on GDT: Game #22, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30, SN)
It was quite enjoyable watching Bernier and Kadri playing goal together. lol. Funny as hell!
@Jmessih suspect goaltending hurt them
@DJBrianBurke @LeafsForLife Dont look now but our "#1" centre just out skated the best player in the game and scored.
Uh oh. Hughson, Healy, Simpsson, Kypreos may be in danger of having to say something positive about the Leafs.
As always Anthony, Great job!!! Always a pleasure to read the notebook.
Ive been advocating since last year that Phaneuf and Franson should be split up on the PP. Maybe the Leafs brass will get smart, for once, and read your notebook. Can only help them!

@Anthony Petrielli @LeafsForLife those were the days when they asked a lesser amount of stupid questions but still seemed to be in the way. haha
3 weeks, 6 days ago on The Mighty Quinn
I remember when Tie Domi, escorted by Pat Quinn was going up to the office to be suspended or whatever by the NHL. A media guy tried to get on the elevator with them and Quinn shoved him and his camera away. Cant remember if he got fined or whatever but loved that he was so no-nonsense.
@McDickey well said
Great job Anthony! Pat Quinn was the man! And will be upstairs with the Big Guy sharing a cigar!
RIP Pat Quinn
RIP Pat Quinn.
Great for hockey.
Will be truly missed!
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Monday Mashup: Who gets the call?
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!

Anyone have a link for the media thing with Dion today please?
@theacs1966 sell high on franson
@Armchair GM @LeafsForLife just kidding
@Armchair GM @LeafsForLife you spelled perfectionist wrong.
Hey Declan. Something wrong with the site today?
When i post something then go back to try and edit, i get a red box saying im trying to post an empty comment box. i click cancel and its put my EDIT in. Sometimes!
@Anthony Petrielli @LeafsForLife @Archie Vanlanda @Mind Bomb @Forever17 last time i saw that was gilmour
but ROR would be a welcomed addition for sure.
@Anthony Petrielli @Archie Vanlanda @Mind Bomb @Forever17 Would you agree we need more just 1 good match-up centre?
@Xxxxxnew No salute is better than the STone Cold Steve Austin salute!
@Forever17 @LeafsForLife @Anthony Petrielli @Xxxxxnew points is great but where are the championships. where was he to lead them through the playoffs. consistency? yea lets stop now.
@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.
@Forever17 @LeafsForLife @Anthony Petrielli @Xxxxxnew huh what? he disappeared for games, then you see him taking a stupid penalty and arguing with the referee. consistent?
Sundin was a good cernte? Joking, but seriously...
EDIT: tried to edit and comments disappeared, said im trying to post an empty comment box. wtf
@Cameron19 @dlb Mad @Mind Bomb What happened to Lupul?
@Cameron19 @Forever17 Hey Cam! You havent written anything (airticles) for the site in a while? When will you be doing that again? Curious to hear a complete opiinion on what is wrong with the Leafs, summarized, and maybe some trade ideas. Just sayin...
@docmma @Anthony Petrielli shouldnt it be "DUMBERER"

@mcloki Thats an easy one to call.
@traNsplantEdneWfie Im going out on a limb and predicting, i warn ya im not good at this, 0-0 to start the game.
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
1 month ago on Roman Polak: “We play as a bunch of individuals”
@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 ok you win
