@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!

1 week, 3 days ago on Friday Mashup: Leiweke not long for Toronto
@Yaknowwhat @LeafsForLife I am sure internally, it will be known who is coming up with solutions.
I am hoping that when Carlyle says, "i dont have any answers" for the problems, that the assistants will. And maybe, that is when the coaching change is made. I have soured on Carlyle considerably since he was hired.
@MaxwellHowe May as well throw in Finn, Rielly, Brown and Nylander
Something is missing here. He was brought in to do a huge turnaround for MLSE and hasnt happened. Its getting there but not yet. Leaving early hints at something behind the scenes has pushed him out.

1 week, 5 days ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM
@ingy56 @LeafsForLife lol thx man
Did Shanahan have his meeting with Phaneuf? Just wondering if anything came out of that?
Not sure if this is a good hire or not. Dont know anything about the man other than what is written above. It seems like they have the right guy for the right position however.
Looks like Kovalev is shaking the "PK is perfect" boat. Lol. Gotta laugh about his criticizms considering how he didnt show up every other season. Great stuff.

Great job Anthony. Thank you.
2 weeks, 6 days ago on What’s Ailing the Maple Leafs’ Penalty Kill – Part 1
Great job Alec and great read too!!!
I personally dont like this "swarm" system just because it didnt work last year and was devestating for the Leafs overall. When we have a coach that says" i dont know what to do" i think its time for a new system, new coach or both. I think the system has to match up with the type of players the Leafs have as well. If theyre not very good defensively, cant or wont play the system, then it belongs to the GM to fix that by acknowledging the problem and fixing it through trades, ufa signings etc. I think they have done that to a degree, however, i think its a shame they waited until after a disastrous finish to the season that they something. Its shameful how the best and most loyal fan base in the world, are treated so horribly. Hopefully it will begin to change this year.
GO LEAFS GO1

Arturs Irbe hired in Buffalo as goaltender coach. lol hopefully he teaches their goalies how to handle the puck and give it away to other teams just like he did.
@Robbies I think Therrien plays a huge role in how Subban is negotiating with the Habs up to now.

@Alec Brownscombe Cant think of a better story line.
@T K O @Burtonboy I think its an optical illusion. Hes laying on the ground. But it could be he is stealing cooking from the Thrill.
1 month ago on Jake Gardiner talks contract with Greg Brady
@Bruffins @JMAC17 @TheCanucksnaphook Ive been with this site over 5 years and its just today i saw someone write JVR-Phaneuf-Kessel. It had to happen eventually.
@TheCanucksnaphook @LeafsForLife @Bruffins yup from the young alllll the way up to "a twitch and a puff of dust" old.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bruffins Not me. I do the "People's Eyebrow" and roll my eyes.
I think this is a very good contract. Its great to have Gardiner locked up for many years to come. Looking forward to watching him get better and better.
I think some people may be upset, but i recall Cameron suggesting this would be ideal to have him locked up for 4 or 5 years. He called it right!!!

@vinoa @LeafsForLife Yes i really like Masai. Especially after the "Fuck Brooklyn" comment to start the playoffs. That was epic!!!
Hoping to hear, "Fuck Montreal" from Shanahan this year.
1 month ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
As always Anthony, fantastic piece!!! I think you are right about adapt or die. Time for everyone to do their part. No more excuses! I didnt think too highly of Shanahan getting the job he did, but he has done a great job in directing where things needed to change and its looking good so far.
Should be a really good camp this year. Lots of competition. Looking forward to it. I think Winnik will be a good addition.
1 month ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
@Savo43 @LeafsForLife Hes a smart guy, i think he will figure that out.
1 month, 1 week ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
I am very happy Optimus is back!! Im sure he will bring it this year and will have a far better defence in front of him, excluding Franson of course. I am looking forward to be able to continue wearing my Optimus sweater!!!
Just wanted to say Thank You to Anthony for this awesome process with Dave Morrison and Thank You to Dave Morrison as well. This is so awesome and very very informative. It was amazing to read and very much appreciated.

1 month, 1 week ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
@Komas Taberle @LeafsForLife @Tim Horton couldnt agree more
@Komas Taberle @Tim Horton @LeafsForLife soft as in no good in corners or soft as in mostly finesse?
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @LeafsForLife @Tim Horton i was thinking it would be good depth. or no?
@Tim Horton @LeafsForLife a good bottom six player. seems like a good deal to me.
@Cameron19 Ill take the one with Halle Berry coming out of the water all day long!!!
I think hes overpaid. But thats imo of course.
I am curious, is Bailey a forward or defenceman? And can anyone give me an indication of what type of player he is please?
Elliot, great job. But seriously, very poor news in that last paragraph. Franson on the Leafs for another year, and on the powerplay. It was supposed to get better this year. ugh.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on The Cody Franson Arbitration: What is he Worth?
2-1-1 in 4 fights. probert is easily 40-60 lbs and 4inches+ more the clark. not to mention the reach advantage.
I didnt say he was in the right role. If he played today he would still play a very similar role because thats his game. He stuck up for his teammates and played the game harder than almost everyone.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: 3 Unknowns Remain; Gord Dineen TSN1050 Interview
@Xxxxxnew Probert was the undisputed champ of the league when Clark came into the NHL. You can pick 1 video but show all the videos and see how Clark does over-all. The point is he took on ALL the heavyweights at a significant size disadvantage and he won or had a draw with 90%. If you dont like him thats fine, but show all the facts not just 1 video to distort the facts.
@Xxxxxnew I think its the quality of the game he played. Played with heart and passion not seen since, Gilmour, Niewendyk(sp), Tucker, and Roberts. Clark played a game very few play anymore. He also took on ALL the heavyweights his first 2 years which caused many injuries as well. Cant grip the stick properly when your hands are swelled up from fucking up Probert and others.
@Bruffins @Xxxxxnew 60-70 years of marriage? wow thats almost worse than watching the Leafs floundering teams the past 50+ years. Good luck with that!!!

@Waiting4LSC @LeafsForLife @Bruffins or a coach up-and-coming. i think he will do better than anyone thinks.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs’ Assistant Coach announcement to come next week
@loomx @LeafsForLife they will do good. they do their respective jobs very well, get a promotion and probably make more money too.
@Bruffins @LeafsForLife well its a promotion and thats what im getting at. I dont think carlyle is with Leafs very long anyways and spott will likely take over.
Whichever coach/assistant coaches from Marlies, if any, get promoted to Leafs, i believe it was well-deserved and well-earned.
OMG cant watch TSN right now. Steve Simmons is such a cock stain.
