@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe He has the right to say whatever he wants.  I think its more of a comment on the bonding aspect of playoff hockey

Quote from Darryl Sutter on team building exercises:


"But chemistry is not an issue with the Stanley Cup champion Kings, whose plain-talking coach Darryl Sutter has little use for such getaways. “I’m not into that, what you hear about go climbing ropes and going to a fort somewhere,” Sutter told the L.A. Kings Insider. “You do most of your bonding in May and June.” .


Not sure if Sutter meant to take a shot at the Leafs, but if he did, well done.

@Knights2Leafs That Colborne move was so dumb.  Now you here the chatter about Peter Holland and his play.  That should be dismissed now that Carrick has been demoted, but Idon't know what people expect from 3C/4C centres.

I posted this yesterday, but I'll provide the link again.  This is for anyone concerned about the Carter Ashton situation.  If you'll recall the Leafs obtained Ashton in a trade with the Lightning.  Going the other way was defenceman Keith Aulie.  For what its worth, Aulie has been a major disappointment.

@Loric76 @MaxwellHowe @Jordan29 And he's with the Marlies now.  Which at least demonstrates that the Leafs are not going to choose a team based on who bangs around and gets in fights during preseason

@Jordan29 Who among are centres are not "soft"?  Not sure what people expect of centres during preseason.  But this smacks of deja vu

@silverleaf @Bruffins No, its sort of like when Robert De Niro was in the movie the Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.  A great performer can't flourish in a poor setting.

@Mattmark If the team that acquires a waived player wants to put them in the minors they have to put them on waivers again - so yes, the acquiring team would have to keep them on the NHL roster

@Mcost61 @MaxwellHowe Lupul?  What makes you mention Joffrey Lupul?

@Whalz They need a first line player.  Lupul I'm not sure what they might have to offer Lupul in terms of a return on a trade Lupul but if they are really hurtin Lupul it might be a chance to Lupul strike a good bargain Lupul

@dlb Mad Thought he played great the last few games.  Saw at least twice that he sprung guys on breakaway or partial breakways

@Burtonboy If you watch him carefully, he glances about before he gets the puck and makes quick decisions.  Some of his break out passes in the last few games have been exquisite.

@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @T K O Rare that I hear Leafs play by play guys, or any play by play guys, that know so much about an opposing team.  And, as I said, not just media narratives, but able to observe on their own, such as when one guy began talking about how effortlessly Rielly skates.


Tho I guess they had to talk about something other than the hockey game in front of them, for obvious reasons

@T K O Colour guy began talking about Leo's legs, how they were like fire hydrants.  Those guys were knowledgable and didn't follow narratives or scripts.  Just two guys tacking hackey

I got the sense last night everyone was just trying their best to avoid an injury.  Nonethless, after a few weeks of practice and instruction, scrimmages and games, the guys should at least play as if they've met one another before.

Everybody. Stop being so serious.  I''m serious.  Seriously.  This game is not serious and I'm seriously pissed that comments are seriously taking this game seriously.  The Leafs don't take this game serious.  So seriously, stop being serious.  I'm serious about this.

@Bruce Gamble That was a bold play to the net, but he has really struggled moving the puck over the zone tonite, especially on the pp; the forwards might be partly to blame

Not sure why there was talk that JVR might be paired with Kadri on the 2nd line.  I haven't seen the Leafs try it yet.
