@BoneChompski Tonight's game was the strangest thing I've seen and I watch the Leafs ;P Those two points they lost will hurt, I'm sure they're pissed about how things went down too.

@TuckerForPunishment @DJBrianBurke @In it to Winnik @Dogger I'm going to be honest with you. I stopped reading, listening to Leafs MSM long ago. Even when the team was good, it was still made me shake my head. Any other team could be the Leafs and they would praise them and say they have a huge shot at the cup, but because they were there Leafs nope!

Perfect example. What did the panel today say who is the favourite for the cup? Montreal. Why? Price. Meanwhile their Corsi is brutal, but that doesn't count, it only does with the Leafs. Do I think they have a shot? Sure, great goaltending can get you far, but I also think any team could go far honestly.

I also don't do twitter, it's just a lot of narcissistic noise.

As for UFAs, it's much more than that. Yes that a big pieces of the puzzle, but it's is no the only thing, it's well documented. Montreal has trouble attracting players too. These are harsh environments to play and live in. Edmonton, let's be honest. If you had a choice to live in any NHL city as a millionaire would Edmonton be your first choice? Honestly. They're also terrible too, so why go? Players want to win.

@TuckerForPunishment @DJBrianBurke @In it to Winnik @Dogger Well I'm not surprised, the Leafs have the biggest fan base. Trending isn't malicious, just means the topic is hot.

I do have a problem with the social interaction with players from fans. ie. April getting tweets. It's disgraceful.

@TuckerForPunishment @DJBrianBurke @In it to Winnik @Dogger Ah, I see. My mistake then. I said earlier that a lot people learned the sport and the nuisances by the broadcast crew. They taught us about the game. I had good teachers with Cole, Neil, Cherry (who knows hockey) etc. Thy just called the game, left their opinions to talented writers. Now everyone has "The Llamas" and other people who hate on the Leafs. 

I actually heard that a lot of this is because fans of other teams tune in to see how badly the Leafs play. I call bs, they don't watch the Leafs for more than 2 minutes, they just check the scores.

I also heard that reporters are fed up with the Leafs losing ways. Supposedly they're fans just like you and I, so they take some of the decade of frustration of covering a mostly inept team out on the actual team (not right) and they get gabs and picked at for covering the Leafs.

Then you have the rest of the country where their ALWAYS on top of the Leafs. BC and Ottawa are awful, they cover the Leafs woes first before their own teams. That's sad of course, but the public there eats it up. Meanwhile they have more success to talk about. And no I don't consider making the finals the be all and end all. This is isn't the Olympics, you don't get silver or a ribbon for participating.


That all adds up to a shit stew.

@In it to Winnik @DJBrianBurke @TuckerForPunishment @Dogger Wait, you guys aren't talking about fans? If this is about Toronto media then I'm in 100% agreement. Just go about your business then lol

@In it to Winnik @DJBrianBurke @TuckerForPunishment @Dogger Give them a winning team and see. There's not much to cheer for in the last how long? 

If you think this is bad, just wait. The real rebuild will crush everyone's spirit. And then they'll be reborn again like a phoenix when they start winning.

Coming out of the 80s, it was like this, then 93 happened and everyone were all smiles and roses. This franchise has put a lot of strain on the fans faith.

Please stop putting your blame on all fans. Yes we have some bad fans, but so do all other big teams.

@TuckerForPunishment @DJBrianBurke @Dogger I've lived in Montreal, trust me. New York is just as bad, come on guys. They don't call it the "Bronx Cheer" for nothing. Please get out of the Leafs bubble. Sure we're the center of the hockey universe, but there are other worlds out there.

Montreal almost lost their team, Montreal! You know the current leader in Stanley Cup wins.

@TuckerForPunishment @Dogger Why does everyone think this only happens in Toronto? News flash it happens to all big teams when they're not playing well. The only thing Montreal has going for it is that most of their players don't understand French to hear what they say about them.

@TuckerForPunishment My question is why put it up? I have never ever heard of any sports tv media (at least in Canada) give any credence or air time to this kind of salacious rumour. True or not it could break up a marriage. The ramifications are pretty far spreading too. So why post it? TSN has stake in the Leafs. I'm hoping it was what I mentioned below, so low level monkey that had the easy task to throw tweets on, screen for swears and useless items and thought it would be funny, stir up some ratings or just thought it was funny to throw more dirt on the Leafs.

@Hmmm @DJBrianBurke @Jay31 Honestly, I wonder if the person in charge for deciding what gets shown, who more than likely is not a higher up, thought it was:


a) funny


b) get some serious ratings/hits etc.


c) not much a Leafs fan


d) all of the above

Stellar night on MLHS, will go down in one of my favs. So many funny comments. WWE comment and the one about the Panther player walking around describing his goal to the fans are pure gold!

Sorry I can't seem to load more comments to give proper kudos using names

@mtommy They got outshot that period and the Cats had half a goalie. I'm not too worried about future games with efforts like that.

Looks like the Leafs might get their first road win of 2015. Of course it took both goalies to be hurt.
