If you don't go to cheer, don't go at all!
@ShiFty_D Just watched the Leaf car take out #18. Looked like a Phaneuf hit.

@ShiFty_D Not a fan either, but I'll watch it just to cheer for #25. Go whoever Goooo !!!! lol

@Burtonboy @Optimustic @MaxwellHowe Maybe, I'm just used to having a defensive line. Maybe because we're not used to having enough talent to dress 4 scoring lines.
1 day, 9 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@Burtonboy @Optimustic @MaxwellHowe Yeah, I don't care how many they score, so long as they don't allow too many. Wearing down the opposition is a bonus in my books too.
@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe That was my take too, 3 offensive lines. I hope our 4th line can do some damage in some way as well. ( damage to the other team this time though).

@ingy56 @Optimustic @wiski I'm not against it, just not used to it, TO isn't Fort Erie.
@ingy56 @Optimustic @wiski Wow, what's next? Street signs in Arabic? Edit: that's likely happening in the North part of TO already too.
@ingy56 @Optimustic @wiski I remember being about 18 years old and driving down there for the first time and seeing Street signs written in Chinese. It was the first time I'd seen anything like it.
@ingy56 @Optimustic @wiski Gee, I've likely been right by it and didn't notice. Seems to me there is a Chinese community around there Edit: or at least there used to be one..
@wiski @ingy56 Is it in TO? I'd have guessed somewhere in the tropics by the pic that was posted.
@ingy56 @Mcost61 The next thing after that is playing in a prison camp. The Longest Yard to be played out every week.

@Burtonboy We should have had one on Orr and FML last year. Not for speed, but just to verify which direction they were going.
@barjv01 @ingy56 @Mcost61 I hope there;s no stream for it. lol
@Mattmark @Optimustic @mike_84 Yeah, he looked really questionable in the first two games. Given his past record with Guelph, I'm hoping that it's just a matter of trying to do too much, and that he'll settle down and play better with time. Everybody transitions a little differently.
2 days, 8 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@ingy56 @Optimustic Just checked, and you're right. They've won 3 times in the last 9 or 10 years.
@ingy56 @Optimustic Could be, I don't follow the ECHL much, but our organization could stand to have a few more winners in it. Just to remind the gang of why they are there. lol
Here's the scoop on Brett Findlay. He'll be 22 next month by the way.
@mike_84 I thought he looked better defensively, but didn't do as much offensively. He didn't have a good tourney in my opinion, but I'm not worrying about it ( most defencemen need time to ply their game ).

Nice play by Leivo. Didn't score but showed his skill again.
2 days, 10 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@deedrag He sure is playing well tonight, you can't say he hasn't deserved more time to prove himself.
@ingy56 yup, right after he won the draw too.
@Loric76 I'll go with Brown, Nilsson and Findlay along with the three probables you mentioned.
Good shift by Brown here. Set up CV with a nice pass. and controlled the play for a bit before that.
@T_Ry @Optimustic @Loric76 yup, it's definitely noticeable. That said, if I had my choice between him and Healy, I;d take this guy. His voice is grating, but with Healy it's what he says that irritates me, and most any hockey fan that I know of.
2 days, 11 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@Loric76 @Optimustic @T_Ry I often turn the volume down watching games. That's why you hardly ever here me say STFU Healy. :-)
@T_Ry @Loric76 Yeah, but I think he always sounds the same. I've heard him doing the Marlies games on TV.
@Mcost61 @Optimustic Yup, a highlight anywhere. I hope he keeps making them for us and not against us in the future.
@Loric76 @Optimustic I saw it in the Game In Six that @Jmessih posted. Wasn't it Bernier that made a similar save against the Devils last year?
Man that Bibeau save in the first period was fantastic. Reminds me of a save last year by Bernier?
I'm going to watch it on Leafs TV at 6:00. I'll likely know the score before I watch, but the score isn't the reason to watch preseason anyway. I've been happy with most of our prospects ( except for Rupert ) invitees not included necessarily.
2 days, 23 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Rookie tournament wraps up this aft
@WesternDP Finn's problems weren't all because of his partners. He played well enough offensively, but had trouble in his defensive game. Looks like he'll have some time to get it together with the Marlies this season. Lots of guys to learn with on that team.
3 days, 23 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@Burtonboy I don't see either of them making the team right now, I had hope for Ryan, but both Biggs and Broll must be ahead of them for spots that they'll have a chance at. I'd keep Bodie in before I brought them up.
4 days, 8 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
Agree with most everything you brought up Matt, but I thought Loov and Nilsson were very good last night as well. Maybe not quite as good as tonight, but good none the less. It was a good effort by the boys in Blue for a game where the score didn't matter at all.
4 days, 8 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Loric76 I think Leivo deserves a shot there, but we have so many D that could move up. Loov sure is trying to earn the spot.
@Loric76 Got it, unfortunately I'm not under 25.lol
Fraser hits Gibson with the clearing attempt
6 - 2
@Jmessih Lol they started it with the hit from behind.
5 - 2 PP goal.
@Luke_R Did you get a link?
@Jmessih On Lazar too. Nice.
4 - 2 Sens. 2 on 1 not played well enuogh by the D.
@Jmessih We need lots of that from the big boys this year. Tired of the way we played last year.
How did that not go in?
@sniperstar post your email address
3 - 2 Sens bad turnover
@mike_84 @Jmessih Fraser?
@Reversethecurse13 @Optimustic He's been good tonight. Findlay has been a very good surprise this tourney too.
@Reversethecurse13 @Optimustic Glad to help, it said it was full earlier.
