@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Sadly enough, it's probably right in line with all charities.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I had all 4 taken out about 18 months ago and it wasn't bad. I went under full anesthetic and was loopy for the rest of the day, but the pain was manageable for sure. One of them was a very difficult removal as well.

@Greg Fenton That logic is terrible. Just because the Leafs haven't won a Cup (neither has St. Louis, BTW) doesn't mean Kessel hasn't has a huge effect on their results.
I agree with Vinoa...having Kessel behind Steen is purely trolling the Leafs and their fans. If, even in his best year Steen isn't half the player Kessel is then having him ranked ahead is ludicrous and indefensible.

@-Keon People under the age of 35 just can't imagine what it was like to have a guy like Ballard in charge of the Leafs. He was a BAD MAN, not just a bad GM or bad Owner. But a BAD MAN. He ran the Leafs like they were his personal toy, he tried to ruin anyone who went against him in any way. He was a brute to his own family and he allowed some terrible things to go unchecked in Maple Leaf Gardens. He was a criminal and a thug.
The difference between the Maple Leafs and the Canadiens as far as NHL legacy goes is literally the difference between Harold Ballard and Sam Pollock.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan How did he cost us the series? It was a prick move, but losing Domi vs. Neidermayer seems like a good trade off.

@Mcost61 Do people not read the articles? Kessel's production is better without Bozak.
@4evrblue And Millard's face makes you calm?
@ShiftyD They got hosed because the NHL decided to sell all the broadcast rights to one entity...and they chose Rogers. In the past they've split up the rights among the 3 competing networks, and that gave us some balance and variety. Not anymore.
@ShiftyD Lol...you'll see. Rogers is awful. You're gonna miss TSN.
@Xxxxxnew Awesome. Weber is one dirty fuck.
@Burtonboy Where's he been the last few years? I like him.
@ShiftyD What's your problem with TSN? They got hosed by the NHL, and we, as fans, are going to feel the effects of that this year. You have a problem with Hughson et al...wait until you get to watch Millard, MacLean and that motely crue crew 7 nights a week.
@BPsotka It's ridiculous? So far the evidence shows otherwise. Your subjective definition of an elite player notwithstanding, the ability to play with any linemates...and prosper, and make them better...is certainly one attribute of an elite player. Kessel has shown that.
BTW...who couldn't Gretzky play with?
2 weeks ago on A look at Tyler Bozak’s improved 2013-14 Season
@ShiftyD They've been vastly superior to Sportsnet in their hockey coverage.
@TheCanucksnaphook Me too. Am I going to be able to watch these games out west?
@Mattmark I agree.
@TheCanucksnaphook 4 more years.
@Mattmark Kessel is elite...he'll thrive with anyone as his centre. I suggest you read the other articles showing how Bozak has had zero effect on his production.
@-Keon No, I actually no longer think Bozak is suited to a 3C role either, due to his poor defensive play. He's basically a low end 2C to me at this point, and that makes him overpaid. I think it's laughable to expect Bozak to maintain his current scoring pace (40-50 points) playing away from an elite player like Kessel. All the stats show his play drops off severely when they're separated.
@steele123 If he was playing where he deserves to play he wouldn't be worth anywhere near what he's paid. It's a Catch-22 created by Carlyle. He's a terrible 1C because he can't play defense against other 1C's.
@B_Leaf The least of our problems? I think he epitomizes our problems. Hopefully the practice of overpaying mediocre players, and then having them play out of position has ended with Shanahan's hiring.
@Jmessih Who are these people?
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Just don't let Fransisco get up.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: The Swarm & Coaching Duties
@wiski Fransisco is awful. Is it possible for him to get out of the batter's box without stepping on the plate?
@wiski I wondered that too. The guy he hit was just some 20 year old starting out I assume.
@phaneufoundlander *Groan* Although strokes have very little to do with hearts.
@JMAC17 No doubt. I'm amazed it hasn't happened before. The way these idiots stand there in the middle of the track to yell at another driver. Natural selection at work, IMO.
@wiski The golf is crazy right now too...7 guys within 1 stroke.
@sniperstar Well played. Then I shall unlike it too.

@Bruffins What if you get MORE than 4?
@sniperstar Grabs did a great job...if he fumbles it at all it's a chance the other way.
@Bruffins Poor poor Marty.
@sniperstar First pass from Franson was very risky. It worked out, but it was dangerous.
@Burtonboy I think the issue got worse since he last played with the Leafs.
@Bruffins OH SNAP!
@DeclanK Well, that's complete garbage.
@dlb Mad No...he was garbage in his prime. When he came to Toronto he was an embarrassment.
@Cameron19 I think they both do.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Catching up
@TheCanucksnaphook I agree that was silly, but it had nothing to do with him being a stats guy.
@loomx He's one end of the extreme, with Bob and Phook at the other end.
@Burtonboy Hello Pot...Kettle here. You're black.
@Jmessih Cool video, awful music. (and I use the term loosely)

@Cameron19 And Winnick out.
@TheCanucksnaphook Not sure about that. They bring in a goalie to keep them out of the top 5 draft spot. The Kesler deal was underwhelming. Vrbata is decent I guess.
