@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan It takes that long to find a location. My point is that Leiwiki was never going to be here that long anyway.

@deedrag He was never going to be in Toronto long enough to get an NFL team. They don't have a stadium.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I think our D depends on our forwards doing their parts.
4 days, 8 hours ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@MaxwellHowe He can fuck off...he says "THERE ARE PLAYERS WE HAVE IN OUR ORGANIZATION TODAY..."
Sounds like he's talking about a specific player to me.
@Leafbites Exactly. You take what he said with a HUGE grain of salt. He's one guy who probably hasn't spent any time in the dressing room, at a practice or at ice level during a game. Lots of people have questionable character...it doesn't stop them from getting 10m contracts.
My point is that our results the last 3 years should have told us we lacked leadership and character, why are we reacting like this when some suit says it?
@Yaknowwhat The quote below is inaccurate. The analytics in brackets was not in his original quote.
@Yaknowwhat The discussion on analytics was separate from the character discussion.
@T K O Maybe you can't.
@Yaknowwhat Do you see anyone on our roster with "off the charts" numbers...besides Phil?
@T K O The character flaws are in the core group (in my opinion) and none of them left.
@Yaknowwhat One man's opinion. And did we really think Phil's greatest strength was his character? He's weird and never in shape, but we don't care as long as the hands and wheels work.
Are people actually shocked that we might have a character deficiency? Have you seen our last 3 seasons and their collapses?
Seriously, someone says something that should be obvious to everyone and we want to run him outta town. Some fans need to wake up and stop living in a make believe world.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan When he got sick and died I thought for sure there was gonna be a slew of those guys start dropping. The first 2 I thought of were Bowie and Jagger.

@Pent_House I bet you didn't say that to his face.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Salaries, marketing etc. It's pretty shocking.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@Murph2417 Jose Feliciano does a fantastic version of this song.
@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.
3 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Leafs Links
@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.
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot No, it isn't. That's crazy.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Friday Mashup: Leiweke not long for Toronto
@-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.

@Burtonboy 2 hours worth of programming repeated 12 times?
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Second Assistant GM Hire to Come Next Week
@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?
4 weeks, 1 day 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.
1 month, 1 week 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.
