@Sundin_13 Can he play wing?
3 days, 13 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
And watching how bad this Tampa team is really sucks as a Leaf fan...
I turned this game on just in time to watch Stamkos have a breakaway called back because of a phantom offside, a Tampa goal called back because of a phantom goalie interference and a non-call on an actual interference against Stamkos knocking him to the ice where he gets accidentally kneed in the head. Well done NHL, well done indeed.
He's got another 6 years at $5.75 per and has dropped to 4th line centre...

What the hell has happened to Mike Richards in LA?
@Cameron19 And making Pat Roy look like a genius :)
@Murph2417 @Wilbur @Bobsyouruncle Of course, if you don't do it at that time then there is no time to do it.
@Jay31 Gunnar and Dion?
@Bobsyouruncle @Murph2417 Would have taken a lot of balls to make that move. Of course, if you're thinking 2 - 4 years down the road then maybe you make the move.
@.JVR. @Wilbur Time will tell.
@.JVR. @Wilbur I think a lot of us think Stastny or ROR won't be back because we'd like to have them. I think there will be a few surprised people when both stay.

Suter is the best Dman in the league…How is he supposed to stop that trio?
If COL can keep this whole group together they have a chance to put a forward group together that rivals the '80s Oilers just in a different era where the game is played a little differently.
Here's the best part…THey are doing this without Duchene :)
Holy shit! Wow!!!
@Jordan29 @mike_84 @Wilbur And yet he is still there. I think they will find a way to keep everyone happy. At the very least it won't happen until Mackinnon gets a new contract.
@Jordan29 Can't win in this league without strength down the middle.
@Jordan29 @Wilbur We'll see. Time heals a lot of wounds and so does the chance to be part of something special for a long time.
@Cameron19 Oh, and John Mitchell ;)
COL will find a way to keep Stastny and ROR. None of those forwards are going anywhere...
@Cameron19 Duchesne, Mackinnon, ROR, Landeskog, Stastny….We have a ways to go.
@Cameron19 No shit. That team is stacked up front. PISS ME OFF….
Nice to see the Leafs' Dmen aren't the only ones to allow opposition forwards multiple shots at the net without being covered never mind knocked on their ass.
@Jordan29 @Wilbur It's been a close series so CHI isn't out of it but a suspension to Seabrook will hurt.
Just saw the Seabrook hit…That's a 3 game suspension right there. And Duncan Keith doing his best Sean Avery imitation. Queneville better get his team straightened out in short order.
Ducks vs Stars game is great.

@WendelGilmour @ShiftyD @Wilbur @Bruffins @~Keon Give me Komorov and Ashton on the wings an energy centre between them with some speed/size as well. I'd like to see that.
@Bruffins @Wilbur @ShiftyD @~Keon Yup and I like him. When you watch the two Detroit players mentioned neither one of them are face punchers by any stretch but they sure bring it consistently.
@daniel marois @Wilbur They'll take the BPA. Whomever they believe that is come their selection.
@Bruffins @Wilbur @ShiftyD @~Keon For sure but his game isn't fighting. I'd rather he expend his energy hitting, cycling and driving the net.
@Bruffins @ShiftyD @~Keon Someone needs to remind him he doesn't need to fight. His nose can't take it anymore...
@daniel marois @Wilbur No matter who they take there's always a risk involved. Not crazy at all.
5 days, 13 hours ago on Four Questions on Peter Laviolette
@daniel marois @Wilbur If one of them drops it will be Ritchie...
@daniel marois @Wilbur Leafs will have to move up to get either of Virtanen or Ritchie. I'm guessing but I think they will go in the top 6. If they want Virtanen (I can't see VAN passing on him) they will need to trade up with NYI/BUF or CAL.
@daniel marois If the Leafs want to be guaranteed of either one of these guys they will have to move up in the draft.
@wendelsfist @Wilbur @Knights2Leafs No contest there...
@Knights2Leafs @wendelsfist No contest there...
@wiski So, if I understand correctly. Mirtle would like a picture of Quenneville grabbing his crotch? Not the type of thing I'd have tweeted to the universe but that's just me.

@Sundin_13 @Wilbur Yup but no way were they winning a cup without two offence first forwards (their two stars) committing to Hitch's game plan.
There's hope for the Leafs…Ken Hitchcock walked into Dallas and got Modano and Hull to buy into defence first hockey and they won a Cup. It wasn't easy. It took a lot of hard work, commitment and accountability but it happened.
@wiski @wendelsfist @Wilbur Attack and defend as a team!
@wendelsfist @Wilbur @wiski They can. We need a few different players and then commitment to both sides of the puck.
Two negatives when multiplied equal a positive. Is this what CBC was thinking putting Dean Brown and Greg Millen together?
@wendelsfist @Wilbur @wiski Tremendous amount of puck skill (while skating), lots of compete and they don't quit on the puck.
@wiski Making St. Louis look like the Leafs in their own end.
@wendelsfist @Wilbur I'm not questioning the quality of Nonis' trades, I'm just guessing that if left to his own devices he will also miss some opportunities in the trade market because of his personality. Just like the decisive GM that leans to the trigger happy side of things will also make their fair share of mistakes by being to active/aggressive. A good reason to be surrounded by a good management team that aren't a bunch of "yes men".
6 days, 12 hours ago on NHL Playoffs Round 1 – Open Thread
Strengths and weaknesses are two sides of the same coin. One of Nonis' great strengths is his patience. His patience with young players and players that may be struggling today will payoff big time for us in the future, However, the other side of the coin (the weakness) may be an inability to take a chance and pull the trigger. Shanahan is also a patient guy but I think he'll be willing to pull that trigger when the time comes. I'm hoping the two of them make a good team that way just like Nonis and Burke did. Poulin and Loiselle aren't those guys. Shanahan needs to be.
Less than 2 minutes to go. I love me some playoff OT...
Blues tie it up!
@Belfour20/JB-45 Was Reimer in net?
