@Bruffins @BoneChompski @Burtonboy To paraphrase the best quote from Burke interview: media outlets in other cities (Calgary), will criticize and not whitewash, but generally want the team to do well...but this is not the case in Toronto. EXACTLY!

@mike_84 @Leafbites That's right

Salutegate...Paaleeaasse! The salute is the dumbest thing in hockey, anyway. Well, that is besides the Toronto media.
@Komas Taberle @TheHawk And in any fucking order he wants.

@Cloud09 Well, this band of misfits were more or less cancers on other teams, that's how we inherited them.
The players tune out Randy–is this supposed to be new news? Not from my vantage point.
@Wilbur @Mcost61 when the captain says they weren't prepared after a drubbing by the worst team in the league....yea Dreger, you dumbass, the coaches get a free pass. I can't stand that clown

@ingy56 Is that not another shot across the bow of the sinking ship, the SS Randy?
Clearly the players want Randy out. I mean these guys suck, but this stinks of mutiny.
Yep, one to forget, for sure. But folks need to relax a bit, it's only hockey.
As much as I enjoy MLHS, game threads are becoming unbearable. Grown men that sound worse than my teenage daughters, whining over every little play on the ice. Trade this guy, trade that guy...I say grow up.

@djamon I think so too, maybe wake up the bench
1 week, 3 days ago on GDT: Game #18, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Buffalo Sabres (7pm, HNIC)
great game so far, if this were 1983
@Yaknowwhat Actually what I saw was Pitt doing an excellent job of getting in shooting lanes.
1 week, 4 days ago on GDT: Game #17, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30pm, TSN4)
@Burtonboy @Dangle_My_Berries I thought Pitt played a very good game all around
Where's the crowd trying to lift these guys, fucking brutal arena
weak goal, get some shots on this guy
@docmma @TheLoovTrain @newkb I thought he had a decent period as well, but some folks just hate him no matter what he does.
Huge key in tonight's game: STAY OUT of the penalty box...duh! Skate for sixty!

Good game in Anaheim right now. Anderson let in a brutal goal and was yanked, but the ducks just got one back. 3-2, for anyone interested...

Phil was just awesome–a tour de force.
A perfectly rolled cuban cigar, a fine scotch and a Kessel release.
Hit the showers, Tuuka
Johnny on the spot
Bernier looking smooth between the pipes
@docmma You mean, finally some communication in the d zone
Got to finish those Bozak, damn boy
@newkb Fine, but the other units had no probably generating offence, as well, and these other combinations were getting more o-zone time, overall–making the game a lot less adventurous for our D and goaltenders.

@newkb Not sure how anyone believes that this line combo works. They generate a few chances off the rush and spend most of the night in the defensive zone.
@loomx @newkb I'm with you, that top line is probably the worst defensive line in hockey. We get almost no 4-line momentum with these combos, mush less of a forecheck/cycling game and overall, way less o zone time as a group.
@Jmessih Yep, that was pretty good action.

@Jmessih But after watching the Leafs-Sens game tonight, this game with the ducks lacks excitement..too much structure, lol

@Leafs_17 He'd get destroyed if he were a leaf
@Knights2Leafs Our coach has no idea how to use his bench. It's so blatant.
@loomx A disgrace
@Xxxxxnew @Mcost61 @TheLoovTrain I lived in Vic for 10 years, just moved out of there last year. Great city!
Now, I live in Kelowna, which is a pretty great town, as well.
Nice win last night, but I still believe for this team to have any success, they'll need to roll with a balanced line up that has a defensive presence and/or a cycling, forechecking presence on every line.
Carlyle going back to minimally using the 4th line and overusing Bozak and Dion is a recipe for disaster–not sure how many times we have to go down this road?

Kadri bringing a 200 ft game again tonight. Got to give the kid credit for working hard to improve his game!
2 weeks, 3 days ago on GDT: Game #14, New York Rangers at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
@philthethrill @Leafbites loved it!
So happy for Leo!
@Alec Brownscombe Magic on the blue line
@Mcost61 Yep and dominated we will be
@Luke_R If they run with these lines from the warm up, he won't be tested too much tonight, anyway.
@Burtonboy I'm with you, BB. The player bashing around here these days is childish and I really have no time for it.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #13, Toronto Maple Leafs at Colorado Avalanche (9 p.m., TSN4)
@ninepaces @Leafbites Dude, this is such a reach. Applaud the coach for other moves if you want, but this is nonsense.
@ninepaces Seriously, yep that's genius to pull the goalie down a goal with a minute left?
Usually Bozak gives me fits, but he had another very good game tonight.
@Burtonboy If this is how RC has been handling his goalies, then he invited this controversy.

@Anthony Petrielli @Mind Bomb @Darkside Beleafer Bingo. Lack of communication with players is disturbing...and we expect the players to take the heat for discombobulation when we have this kind of leadership at the helm.
