@weekendwars Leafs and Swedes go hand in hand. We've had a pretty nice relationship.
1 day, 4 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@Mattmark @LN-093 Too true, that would be horrific. Let's hope that never, ever happens.
@LN-093 @Mattmark Well the US military need more than small town america to buy their surplus military equipment.
@Mattmark Well Gerldo is basically blaming Canada for all the recent terrorist attacks so…
I saw last night a few Sens and alike talk about "how special" the nation anthem is going to be. I felt it was a bit on the tacky side to talk it up almost like they were selling it. I feel it should go without saying that the game is going to have a special atmosphere and there's no need to tell us how the Sens org. is going to make it special. Maybe it's just me...
@MikeGartner11 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli It's embarrassing, but they ended up getting a legend, just doesn't seem fair or right. That is why I wished the NHL would totally overhaul the lottery. They made a very small step with this year's changes, but it's not even close to being enough.
@MikeGartner11 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli There was a special that aired recently which basically said that Pitts tanked on purposed to get Mario (special or no, it's was pretty apparent at the time too), now teams don't have to do that as much with all the closed doors.
1 day, 5 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@LN-093 @DJBrianBurke @MikeGartner11 @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli The list is huge.
@MikeGartner11 @LN-093 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli Plus they're Canadian, the only time the NHL has helped a Canadian team in the draft was Montreal with allowing them to draft French Canadians first (forget what it was called). Can you imagine if they allowed the Leafs to choose Ontario born players first?
@MikeGartner11 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli I would have included them, but they did it at the wrong time. Pitts got Mario and Crosby, Edm three picks combined won't even come close to half of what they did.
@MikeGartner11 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli Pittsburg TWICE!
@MikeGartner11 @LN-093 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli But it's all legit behind closed doors, trust us *voice dripping with sarcasm*
@LN-093 @DJBrianBurke @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli They also give the stars a lot of leeway. All the travelling the stars were allowed in the 90s was pretty nuts.
@LN-093 @Jmessih @DJBrianBurke @Anthony Petrielli NBA and NHL drafts are fixed, no doubt about it. If the NHL wasn't then just show the damn draft. You (NHL) are telling me that watching Daily struggle with the orientation of an oversized envelope is more exciting than the actual lottery draft? Maybe you should tell that to the World Cup group selection which draws huge numbers. And they're just pulling balls out of a bag.
@Jmessih @DJBrianBurke @Anthony Petrielli For sure, my point is when people talk about Boston, NY or Chicago having better sports franchises (read winners) compared to other cities. Or call Toronto a loser sport city because the Jays, Raps and Leafs suck. I don't care if city A, B or C have more winner currently. It usually goes way beyond what city they're in.
@Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli While I don't take much stock in overall city vs city teams fair, would be nice for Toronto to have a winner.
@Jmessih @Bruffins Not bad, but uses too much footage from shootouts. Can't show the "beauty" of a game using hockey's equivalent of a slam dunk competition.
1 day, 6 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@Jmessih Kessel is licks his chops. I could also do without his cheap head shots, crosschecks, slashes etc.
1 day, 21 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
@wiski @DJBrianBurke How I wish for reefing these other teams get. People say it all evens out in the end, that's because they get to play the Leafs.
3 days, 22 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@wiski @DJBrianBurke I'll never forget it. It's still absurd to this day.
Oh, my mistake that makes much more sense...
@wiski How the hell does Price get all those calls his way. We've had our goalie pushed off the puck while covering it and Price gets slightly bumped due to his dman and it's called back.
@Komas Taberle @Cameron19 Clutterbuck is known to run around. While I like a guy who hits, I don't like the cheap shots he took tonight.
@Dogger I'm a tad surprised as they're playing the Wings. Only a tad.
@djamon @Bruffins In OT versus a division rival that beat them the night before and the two forwards don't make it their mission to get back on that play? And one of them lost the face-off? Can't win regularly with that kind of effort.
5 days, 8 hours ago on Leafs Notebook – October 20
@Alec Brownscombe Very nice! Can I make a small suggestion? Advance stats/analytics are relatively new, perhaps put a legend below the stats to help define what the acronyms stand for. Like the one you find here in the table: http://www.puckalytics.com/glossary.html
That way people don't have to leave the page to find them.
5 days, 18 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@Yan28 Ugh, bad night when you need the ECHL for a pick up. But good for him, hope he gets confidence and finds his game.
6 days, 21 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
@Cloud09 @Yan28 I was actually starting to wonder if the players are going to start resenting the Leafs fans in the ACC. Sure they haven't had much to cheer for, but it's has to be wearing.
@Lonsmos2 @DJBrianBurke @In it to Winnik Santo is brutal on face-offs, but tother than that the line has been good. I totally agree with Robidas, he's missed a lot when you factor in basically no preseason.
@In it to Winnik Two great signings. No complaints about either of them.
@deedrag Last night was much worse.
6 days, 22 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
@Zep2 A night where the PP would have won them the game and how many shots did they get?
@djamon @Jordan29 Every "core" in my opinion should have at least a very good center and goalie, until then it's not complete.
@Mcost61 No, YOU played a good game...
@VCSteel_Wind I would say McDavid, but the Leafs will not win/retain the 1st overall.
@Zep2 Not sure, but he does like to run. Maybe he can get Phil to join him? ;)
@MikeGartner11 @docmma @donelikedinner Once again no rebound shots.
Leafs are 0-2-1 against division rivals. Can't make the playoffs with those numbers.
Leafs need to hire someone to help this team with faceoffs, they're all brutal and it costing us games.
@Bruce Gamble @DJBrianBurke @king leary Wilson might have been on to something lol His faceoffs are pathetic.
@docmma @Alec Brownscombe I did no such thing.
@king leary Wings have been cheap for decades.
I'm tired of Kadri's faceoffs (plus the rest of the team).
@Komas Taberle @DJBrianBurke Not liking most of our players won't even push a player over when they're clearly off balance.
@Shafty lmao nice!
This team sucks at puck retrieval, and we lose too many faceoff. Not a combination for success.
Fitting that it comes off a lost faceoff.
@AlbertaMapleLeaf Need to win a faceoff.
@Leafs_17 Can;t like this enough. x1000
I have a great idea, let's stop this exciting play for a shootout.
@Yan28 @Jmessih Let's been honest a lot of everyday Leafs' fans aren't the brightest hockey minds. Especially drunk ones.
