Good nite folks

KAdri plays well against the Sens
The Kid went to the Brian Burke School of Public Speaking
He needs to shut up and produce. Like John Tavares!!

On the way out to play shinny. If I put up the effort these guys have lately, I'll get benched
Nice that we got MArc Hunter, I guess. A 1C would he been better

Kadri talks the talk . AGAIN
15 hours, 12 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Taking on the toughs
Off topic, somewhat. But Bibeau is having a hell of a start

@Cameron19 @Burtonboy @Pent_House Carrick?
Thanks for the write up AP

Bibeau has a .959 save% and a 1.25 GAA
All of a sudden we are deep in goaltending
2 days, 3 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@Bruffins @Burtonboy There is some good stuff happening this season no doubt. We are struggling along with our top players being less than ordinary
Nevertheless , the Leafs have special talent for losing games they could or should win. Thats whats so Fracking frustrating about them
Last nite, the opener. Countless points given away down the stretch last year.
2 days, 11 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
Bernier gave us a Belfour like, Vezina worthy performance last nite
HerEs the rub. If this team doesn't show improvement, whats his motivation for resigning with the Leafs
2 days, 11 hours ago on Game 6 Scoring Chances: DET 1 vs. TOR 0
@LyGuy They brought Frattin in to provide scoring on the 2nd or 3rd line. He hast risen to the occasion, though he hasnt been give much of an oppurtunity
Winnick was supposed to be a 4th line guy . Now he's playing 2nd line and thats a probleM
2 days, 13 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
Corsi for -Franson 70%, Dion 67%
Thats good isn't it
2 days, 14 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
@Bring the Cup Home If Santorelli wasn't doing so well on the 3rd line, he'd warrant a look on the 1st
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Burtonboy I give it to the 20 game mark
Over our last 20 we are 4-15-1
I dont expect to be that bad after 20 this year but who knows. The next 5 games are no picnic . If we go 2-3 , 2-2-1 or 3-2 , Carlyle gets more time, but if its 1-4 ,something gotta give
@Burtonboy You're still tinkering around the edges. We are getting beat at the dot. We start with the puck 30 to 40 % less than the other side. Komorov, Winnick and Clarkson were taking face-offs last nite .
2 days, 17 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
Get Coutourier or someone like him who can match up with the Zetterbergs, Crosbys, Getzlaf
Offer up anyone but Bernier, JVR, Rielly
@Knights2Leafs Have a good game
Frattin had one great hit and one turnover and was stapled to the bench. He also nearly scored because he has a release that is world class. All that in 3 minutes
Gardiner has lost his confidence. From a standstill , his first step is slow .
If Frattin could get his head screwed on right he could be on the 2nd r 3rd line and Winnick would be playing where he was signed to play, on the 4th
Of course this doesn't address the problem that out best C is mike Santorelli. I don't know what Nonis is doing out West, but I hope its more than accumulating frequent flyer points
2 days, 18 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
@Knights2Leafs @Zep2 Im not suggesting tanking. But the reality is that the way we are now playing , I don't think we beat the Isles, Ott , or Jackets. We might rise to the occasion and beat the Bruins and we should beat Buffalo.
I can see major changes coming, starting with Carlyle. This team has played a 1/2 of period on home ice with enthusiasm.
Isles ,Sens, Bruins, Sabres , Jackets on the sched by end of the month
Best case scenario, we end Oct, a game under .500
Worse case we lose to very one but our MacDavid competitor
3 days, 3 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
Maybe so, but Kessel and Bozak started in the offensive zone with 23 seconds left. How is that goal on Carlyle.
Fire him, sure. but take a few other scalps too.
With just a modicum of luck against the Habs and tonite, we could be 3-2-1 or 4-2 and we would be all smiles. But this team has a certain genius in finding ways to lose
There is something missing . The desire to win maybe
I don't hate any hockey players other than most Habs and Matt Cook
I've never been more than disappointed or deflated by the B& W
Tonite I,m both. Again
Lupul and Winnick played with some fire in their belly too
Lots of blame to go around. Praise, confidence, enthusiasm. not much beyond Bernier and the 3rd line .
A are in purgatory
It's not lottery bad , but not close to being playoff bound
Over the last 20 we are 4-15-1. that's hell. I
I'd consider it because if this team doesn't turn it around , he'll walk next year
It's a bit early to be looking for silver linings but Did the Marlies win todAy
1 goal in 2 nites
Break up the Leafs, Break up the Leafs
Can Babcock win faceoffs
3 days, 4 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
6 games in and the theme song for this season should be
Slip Sliding Away
Get players committed to getting better
KAdris talk about taking a step is just that , talk.
BTW , Santorelli gad a heck of a game , but why where Komo and CLarkson taking faceoffs
He can't motivate Bozak, KAdri, Santorelli , Holland etc etc etc to win fucking face off
No wonder our Corsica or WTF you call it sucks. We never start with the puck
Yeah, if they lose tonite, the emperor is pretty naked. They might as well go all in on MacDavid / Eichel
3 days, 13 hours ago on Saturday Mashup: Round Two, Hopefully Better than Round One
I thought the Leafs could come in and get 3 of 4 its and show they were a team on the move or a split to show they are at least competent
The split is still possible, but if they get swept the results will speak for themselves. 2-4 this season 4-16 over the last 20
Thats Sabres and Carolina bad
Time to fish or cut bait
Looking at the scoring chances and TOI , it looks like the 2nd line, Percy and Polak got eaten alive
Top line looked ok but played less than normal
The team can't get firing on all cylinders
Record in is now 4-15post L.A. miracle game in March. A loss tonite would put our record at 4-16 , 20 % of possible points
If they don't show up tonite, Shanahan needs to fire Carlyle and Nonis , trade Ph9 for futures, consider moving Kessel and coaSt into the lottery. They got the coasting down pat, that shouldn't be a problem.
You might have to hire extra staff to pick jerseys off the ice
3 days, 13 hours ago on Game 5 Scoring Chances: DET 4 vs. TOR 1
@Yaknowwhat yeah its time . 2-3 DOESNT LOOK BAD, but 4-15 screams fire somebody and move some bodies
3 days, 17 hours ago on Game Review: Game #5, Red Wings 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
This site is as quiet as it was in mid August
That says everything you need to know about the Leafs performance and waning fan enthusiasm
Playing at home, crap the bed, crowd that sits on its hands and shows less enthusiasm than 7000 Panther fans then throws a Jersey
If there is a merciful hockey God , Dion and Reimer will be going
Then we can concentrate solely on scapegoating Phil

I couldn't get a stream. I was kind of pissed off
Ended up watching Mad Men with the misses
Much better entertainment much less frustrating. Glad I didn't waste much time on this dog
4 days, 4 hours ago on Game Day: Game #5, Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
I tuned in half way through the 1st, down 1-0 , 2 shots on goal
We are in our own barn. Where is the fire ?

That x checking penalty on Polak was weak

@LN-093 Babcock is probably the better coach , but I don't think he's a miracle cure.
He inherited a team that was a 2 time Cup winner and was loaded with HOF level talent and one of the best minor league systems in the game.
Carlyle and Wilson before him weren't dealt the same cards
4 days, 10 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Wings back to back on deck
@Cameron19 @Zep2 Kariya in his prime was no slouch. Neither was Selanne.
@djamon @Bruffins I liked the Fedora.
Maybe Babcock is a better coach
But history shows that 2 things can win a Cup
The best talent or insane goaltending , coaching is not that big a factor
See Scotty Bowmans run in Mtl . He fluked a Cup when Dryden stood on his head, then he won 3 in a row because he had the best team and another because Don Cherry can't count to five
