Does anybody remember a game way back when Stephane Quintal was with the Jets and he tried to take a Leaf out with a dirty knee on knee hit?  Now this idiot is running league discipline...

I recall some people saying that Burke got taken when he publicly disclosed he was taking Kadri to Murray on the draft floor... That Cowan was the better player and Murray outsmarted Burke...

@colino177 Coincidences can be freaky... Nolan was fired because he couldn't get along with Muckler I think... Took him a long time to get back in... He may be a caretaker coach for a few lean years until Murray hires his own guy...

Pierre McGuire on Ottawa radio today said he was recently talking to Babcock and they both agreed that Carlyle is a great coach and can't understand all the crap he takes... Babcock said he of all people should be in a position to know as he's coached against him extensively...


That aside, I'm able to post from my BlackBerry Playbook... Yipee...

@Cameron19 @Armchair GM I just hope this year is different from last year and the team builds some cofidence that translates into consistency... I thought last year's winter classic was a confidence builder and then they completely stunk against the Rangers...the rest is history...

@Radar O'Rielly I remember watching it as a ten year old... the Bruin's goalie Dave Reece had a practice before games that involved staring at a puck for several minutes straight, and then saying "time factor" when it was time to break off concentration... he never played another game in the NHL...

Shaun Simpson, a former assistant Leafs GM, said that Shannahan and the Leafs had tampered extensively with Mike Babcock.  Has he crossed the legal line into libel or slander?  Any professional or amateur lawyers out there?

Simpson said this on Ottawa radio - he is a regular host on TSN 1200 in Ottawa.  The context was the Winsdor story that Babcock was close to a contract extension with the re Wings.
