In NY ... too busy to be able to log in.. did I miss anything in last 24 hrs?
2 hours, 29 minutes ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
@Jmessih Two Leafs really stood out
1 day, 9 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
Anyone over 40 think of this.... with Bob McGill (big daddy- Uncle Bobby)..
When I hear Bibeau.... I think
Bibeau, Bibeau and the Uncle Bobby Show.... if you don't get it no worries.. you are NOT old or not from Toronto
How has Hopponen looked in the times he has been on the ice?
1 day, 10 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
Really liking how Bibeau looks in net.. positioning, reflexes, ability to see the puck in traffic, composure... the dude looks good
@dlb Mad @CanuckUKinToronto he does things all at speed.. that is the difference and why if he can take the physical he is defn a solid NHLer
@mcloki We need to sign Rick Middleton's kid.. .. then we have William Nylander..
We have a line where William scores with Middleton set up by "Camilla" Parker Bowles
@dlb Mad @CanuckUKinToronto great receiving from feet to stick.. and movement.. beauty pass too
I am sorry.. Brown if fucking good
Brown Verhaeghe and Leivo = Top line for Marlies?
Then if they perform, we have Kadri, Holland, our top players.. bye bye fillers on the Leafs by year end
Two French Canadian goalies for the Leafs by next year?
@RandomScrub @CanuckUKinToronto thanks.... I see- Leivo is Captain for this one?
Just turned on the game.. did I miss anything?
@ingy56 That means he is going to Sweden. He is not passing Granberg and Percy on the depth chart based on a rookie camp and 2-3 preseason games
1 day, 13 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Rookie tournament wraps up this aft
@Mcost61 @CanuckUKinToronto Sutter family 2.0?
@mcloki @CanuckUKinToronto agreed.. lucky I am working from home today.. Up at 4am tomorrow to go to NY.. next week NY then London and Germany so will miss a lot of the preseason stuff..
Hockey is back.. Leafs Lunch at least
Is today's lineup a test to see if Brown and Verhaeghe can carry an offense? Also to see if Bibeau can stand on his head?
Ruperts on a 2nd line?
Rookie game at 2pm.. try to wrap up things for a break from 3-4:30 to catch some of it.
@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb Nothing like being up 24-0 then blowing it and going into half time 24-24 (Fucking Don Strock in for David Woodley)
1 day, 17 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Rookie tournament wraps up this aft
@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb Winslow lost 13 lbs of during the course of that one game (water)...
@Mind Bomb @MaxwellHowe Drew Doughty is only 6 months older than Jake Gardiner and has 2 cups and an Olympic Gold medal... it is not age.. they need to get to play... I hate that we just keep players in minors due to age - re experience.. WE ARE NOT WINNING it all now so if the player will learn/not have development ruined= special player who can be better in NHL than AHL (like Rielly).. then let them play...
@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb I had a Chargers 14 jersey with FOUTS on the back
@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb yes.. if they had defense they would have won a few championships
@ingy56 @Mind Bomb Should have been a lat 70s Chargers fan where the games were 41-38
@Mind Bomb @ingy56 Hey.. I am a Chargers fan.. Have been since mid 70s and Fouts/Winslow/Joiner/Chuck Muncie days
They played well vs Cards other than blowing lead..
@jbman5 Only possibility would be if injuries plagued the main team... ie. Sparks if Bernier or Reimer are injured..
Leivo the same if one of our top wingers gets injured.. otherwise probably not

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Love.. just kidding.. it is LOOOOOV
2 days, 4 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
@Tommy Cat @CanuckUKinToronto Because he was a Swede he maybe could have found a few more Finns.. definitely the expert in the Swedish market.
2 days, 5 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Loov returning to Sweden? Leafs invite Cal Heeter to camp?
Just read the Thommie Bergman quote on Nylander- “I was more afraid that he was not going to be there,” said Bergman. “I thought he was going to go at five. He’s extremely talented. He has to be a little bit stronger, but his hands, his skating, everything is high level.”
Nylander was known as possibly the most skilled forward in last year's draft.....
and two years ago we got Rielly at 5 and if he wasn't injured in junior he might have been taken top 2.... According to Burke (although probably not true).. he said he would have taken him first overall..
We may have lucked out and got two top start players while not drafting first or second overall.. Add having Kessel at 5th and JVR who was a 2nd overall and Kadri at 7.... we have a very good pool of talent over the last 7 drafts- top talent... and good later picks.. not to mention up and coming players
@Cameron19 amazingly, if you filter the last year's stats page on that.. go to end page.. youngest birthdate of ALL players- Morgan Rielly was the 16th youngest player in the whole league last year and that is having one full year in junior after draft

When is the next rookie game?

2 days, 9 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
Freddy G has back issues maybe because he was 6ft 5 when he was like 16... stretched too quick for the spine
2 days, 11 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@ingy56 Trade Franson and make room for Loov.. lol
@ingy56 Cal Heeter.... sounds like the third male skater in Blades of Glory with Jimmy McElroy and Chad Michael Michaels
Only value of 11 forwards 7 d is if we have injuries/penalties during the game creating ability and flexibility ... that being said, with our surplus of forwards and our 7th D more likely a Marlie, then maybe better to keep roster as 12F and 6D

@Burtonboy no captain? just assistants?
2 days, 16 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Jmessih Big line up for that Donaghey autograph
3 days, 3 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@DeclanK @Burtonboy @Knights2Leafs According to Hockeydb.com Loisele is 5ft 11 and Nylander looks a bit taller than Loiselle even. Poulin is 5ft 11 too.. so clearly he is at least 5ft 11
@Jmessih It is better he struggles so he learns how to adapt and continue to grow as a player in the minors
3 days, 4 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@sniperstar The bar
@Loric76 What happened to him?
3 days, 5 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
Instead of headache relief.. More like Headache cause..
Just what the Doctor ordered- TAKE TWO RUPERTS AND CALL ME IN THE MORNING
@mcloki that is why.. we dont have the sound coming out of the puck
to start in the minors.
PTO refs signed by the league... one out of 10 make it
Are the referees also "rookies" in a rookie tryout as well?
@Jmessih @Loric76 because he was a Soo player.. and Dubas was Soo GM
