@DeclanK I think hell makes it before Biggs. Good speed and puck handling for a man his size
4 days, 22 hours ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
There are 2 reasons an 18 year old forward to make it into the NHL
He is Über talented-Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin
His team is desperate-RNH, Garry Nylund, Alex Daigle

@ Keon lol
@MaxwellHowe @FRyan I agree. Nylander has tons of skill but lets not do a RNH on him
5 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
I had a look. Im not that big into reading sci -fi / fantasy. Having said that I'm starting to read Game of Thrones
5 days, 1 hour ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
I think the board is going to be ok. More people are showing up and that alone lessens the chances for the pissing matches that dominated some discussion this offseason
@Burtonboy @Zep2 The organization was a black hole , no doubt. The Mulligan id like from the Burke years , is Biggs. Burke had a hard on for him, Big,TRuculent , AmericaN. I hope he eventually works out, but he left a guy like Brandon Saad on the table

@Mitch_S2 I tend to agree with you. We know what JVR , Bernier can bring, most think that Rielly will eventually be AT LEAST top 4. The question is whether or not Kadri and Gardiner go from flashes of brilliance, to consistent effective play in their own end with the flashes of brilliance
Time to go for a run
WOW , #17 WITH A BULLET
Goog morning gang . Nice to see new/old posters showing up again.
@Mcost61 As a Leafs fan -Kadri then Jake
1 week ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
@Mcost61 @Xxxxxnew Doughty was the best player at the Olympics. Phil was next
@ingy56 @Mcost61 One of the few
1 week, 1 day ago on Spencer Abbott signs one-year deal
Simmons usually spewS disdain for the Leafs. Nice change
Lupul has to get that enthusiasm, drive back that he had. Maybe it takes getting bumped up to Phils line. Do it Randy
@Cameron19 Kadri and Gardiner have to produce over 82 games. That would be a big add
Morgan Rielly is talented enough to go from promising rookie to star. Then again he might have sophomore jinx
Komo/ Frattin/ Booth will help play in the other teams zone
1 week, 1 day ago on The Maple Leafs & NHL Average Age by Team
@Cameron19 @GreekGod Weren't we 10-4 before Bolland was hurt. Those games were the only time he was anywhere near 100%
It was Warren Beatty wasn't it

@Doorman @Zep2 thx
1 week, 2 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@Doorman Whats the name of that Book sIte that you post on
You mentioned it this morning
@mcloki @Zep2 it starts earlier than that in football. High schoolers are put on pedestals all over the country. Their egos are outsized before they earn a nickel, then universities twist themselves into knots recruiting them as basically free labour
Pro Athletes have sense entitlement , but the NFL takes the cake
Ray Rice, Ben Rothlesberger, Ray Lewis, the Patrtiots TE.
@mcloki @Zep2 I knew someone would post that. Bon must still be sleeping lol
1 week, 3 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@mcloki @Burtonboy Not to mention his girl friends.
2 words of caution on Connor Brown- Bryan Fogerty
Having said that I hope he proves doubters wrong . By all accounts he has a huge desire to succeed
Simmonds article mentions the 70,s Habs team as the only Cup winner whose best player was a winger (Lafleur)
This probably a dig at the Leaf and their lack of strength at C
Islanders -led by Bossy and Potvin
Rangers-led by Richter and Leetch with a cameo from Messier
Habs -Patrick Roy
Leafs 2018- Kessel/bERNIER/Rielly with a help from Nylander
@CanuckUKinToronto Take care
GOOD NITE FOLK
@Alec Brownscombe @Zep2 @jimmyg65 I didn't mention any names!!!!
@MaxwellHowe @Zep2 @Hifi75 That 93-94 team would of been special.
@jimmyg65 As I posted earlier, civility is one of the strengths of this site. Im surprised when posters are banned because Im seldomnly on line when these Dust UPS happen .
As to the old boys club, Ive never seen a new poster not welcomed on board. Having said that, at certain times , you can't get in a post in edgewise because there is a pissing match going on between a couple of posters. It gets old pretty quick
@Hifi75 @Zep2 Im a Leafs and Expos fan. There is something cruel about that
@Hifi75 @Zep2 I cheered for the Patriots way back in the 60,s and 70s
Being from the Maritimes we got Patriots and Red Sox as a steady diet . No winning for 30+ years
Became a Bruins fan because of Orr , who didn't cheer for him
Even the Celtics had a dry spell before Bird showed up
Moral -every dog has his day. I hope
@Hifi75 @Zep2 And my Patriots lost. Damn
@Hifi75 @Zep2 Thanks
Speaking of people or organizations taking themselves too seriously- its opening day in the NFL
ALL HYPE ALL THE TIME
The season better start soon. This site is like a circular firing squad right now. From top to bottom
The reason Ive posted and followed this site since 2008 is the civility and decorum and common sense.
If I want homophobia, sexism , fat guys in thongs and fart jokes I can go to Hockey Buzz or numerous other sites
From top to bottom, we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously .
AFTER ALL- WERE FUCKING LEAFS FANS
Apologies to fat guys in thongs
@ingy56 @Zep2 I gotta admit Iliked those Jim Kelly/Thurman Thomas teams
@wiski @Zep2 -4 and looks like he's played himself into the Final
@ingy56 Ingy you are cursed. Leafs , Expos and Bills .
This site is suffering from lack of hockey. As soon as training camp starts all will be fun and games, HUGS AND KISSES.
Until the Leafs go in the tank and well be at each others throats.
Daleat is having a heck of a round
King Clancy, despite his close association with Ballard deserves a spot on the Legends
@MaxwellHowe @Zep2 maybe so. But this is a sad sad chapter in Leaf history
Keon , Sittler, Lanny, Big M all could have a spot on that bench. Four HOFers treated like garbage, They all have reason to tell the Leafs to stick it where the sun don't shine
I loved Sittler, but to pick him ahead of Keon for this thing is just another snub , CLASSLESS
So there are long lines ups at something called Fan Fest
How long would the lines be if the team actually fucking won something
One of these days, the NHL will put another team will put another team in the GTA (whatever that is) and Leafs management will have to actually put a winner on the ice to make money
1 week, 3 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
Hard to fathom the banning of one of the most prolific and inoffensive posters on this site . What are Ban-able offences anyways
1 week, 4 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@ingy56 The impact of Imlach and Ballards pettiness still affects this team
Ostracizing Keon and Sittler , trading the Big M. and Lanny for the equivalent of magic beans.
Makes man want to weep
1 week, 5 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@mike_84 @Zep2 I heard Aaron Sanchez was being groomed
Losing Cabrera was a stab in the heart
Their lineup 1 through 6 has had significant injury issues this year. Hard to win a pennant
@mike_84 @Zep2 For sure
Casey Jansen but his foot in his mouth at the trade deadline. Jays needed a closer who could close down the stretch.
That would have helped
Nice to see Jays win.
Rasmus is a better hitter than Gose ever will be.
