My heart says 4-1 Leafs, but this nagging feeling in my head says 5-3 Carolina..

@B_Leaf I've actually been mulling over going to those games. Told the wife we'd go "south" for Christmas, not sure how Florida and two Leaf games would fly..

@dlb, just dlb @MLHS_Luke ahem...
Who are you, to deny Giroux?
Those assists are too good to be true!
He's the only stud on a team full of duds.
He's just what the doctor ordered for this team to move forward.
So if he doesn't mind getting chilly,
He should leave Philly to play with the Thrilly.
...I'll show myself out.

@dlb, just dlb @MLHS_Luke Think long term, amigo.. Giroux for you.
1 day, 11 hours ago on Game Review: Game #31, Maple Leafs 6 vs. Anaheim Ducks 2
IMO this is the time to make a big move to give us a chance at the cup going forward. With Philly in a lottery position, I wonder if we could someone pry Giroux away..
...and he's injured.

Romanuk having a stroke? Copitar? Reemer?

@Jmessih @Cameron19 @Waiting4LSC @MLHS_Luke I don't think we normally look that bad against Detroit. I think if they play a solid game, we're right in it. If not, it could be a blowout; so, typical Leaf game.
6 days, 6 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Wings Again on Saturday
Big game tomorrow - I think it will be telling, how we respond after being badly outplayed on Wednesday. Even tired, I think Detroit is going to come out strong.
Well, pack it in boys, we're not making the playoffs:

You know those boys are going to want to win one for Burke. It could be a tough game tonight.

@Hammertownleaffan I'm going to the game tonight with that jersey on (JVR, winter classic). Sure hope he turns it around.
@B_Leaf No he was playing the other day. Don't recall the details but he got a point at least.

@BoneChompski @MLHS_Luke Jerk, why didn't you call Komo?
3 weeks ago on GDT: Game #22, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Pittsburgh Penguins (7:30, SN)
Lulz, who called that?
Need to start Reimer next game. Need to keep Bernier hungry.
@Cameron19 Exactly. We should be raging because a horrible Montreal team is owning us in the standings.
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Game Review: Game #20, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Lightning 2
@Cameron19 huh - I guess his name isn't censored on here anymore.
@theacs1966 @wendelsfist Have the Leafs ever traded high?
@Burtonboy This is actually concerning to me. Garbage like this gets back to potential UFAs. I know the media needs to make stories, but it's almost like they want the team to lose. This is why we can't have nice things.
@DeclanK @Armchair GM @Omac13 Don't tell 'Julie Sucks', but I'm a big McGuire fan too. He's a Monster, and his parents - Rex and Sally - are great folks.
@Burtonboy No wonder we can't attract big name free agents..
@Mcost61 @Radar O'Rielly @Cameron19 @In it to Winnik @ConnorCrisp NOOOOO!!!

@Yaknowwhat That's a great idea if we want a top 3 pick in the draft.
@ingy56 @MLHS_Luke From Wikipedia (doesn't sound like a player they would want to lose):
To open the 2008–09 NHL season, Kessel scored the first Bruins goal of the season, playing against the Colorado Avalanche in a game that resulted in the Bruins 5–4 victory. Kessel closed out the regular season on a high note, scoring his second career hat trick in the April 12, 2009, 6–2 visitors' victory against the New York Islanders, and amassing the highest number of NHL regular season goals so far in his young career with 36, the most on the Bruins team for the season.
In the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs, Kessel would play an integral role in the team's playoff run, leading the team with 6 goals, before losing to the Carolina Hurricanes in the conference semi-finals in 7 games. After the playoffs, it was reported that Kessel would need off-season shoulder surgery, most likely caused during a 2–0 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The surgery was successfully performed during the off-season, with recuperation from the surgery causing Kessel to miss the start of the 2009–10 NHL season.---------------------Check out his playoff stats - pretty impressive for his age: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Kessel
I've noticed a number of people commenting recently about Kessel, and assuming 'well, if Boston wanted to get rid of him, obviously he can't be part of a successful team.'. From what I recall, Boston absolutely did not want to trade him, but Kessel wanted out (and in stepped Burke).
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that this myth about Kessel being run out of Boston is gaining traction, and I don't think it's correct.

@peterbleafs @MaxwellHowe @Zep2 @Burtonboy They couldn't have had Kessel and Seguin - they keep Kessel, we get Seguin.

@MaxwellHowe @MLHS_Luke I think someone mentioned yesterday that all MON-BOS games are the second game of back-to-backs for Boston too. BS!
Another back-to-back? Who made this schedule, Montreal?
That is all.

Alec - any way to bring back the 'join date' feature that our accounts used to have? We were talking about it below and it'd be cool to have that info available. May not be possible with all the changes to the website, just curious.
@Potcy @MLHS_Luke @ingy56 @4evrblue 2008 or 2009 I think?
@Potcy @MLHS_Luke @wendelsway1 @ingy56 @4evrblue True enough. Did you come over when Alec made the switch from HB? What a happy day that was...
@ingy56 @MLHS_Luke @Potcy @4evrblue Yea it was him. I think his sister had a blog which is where we donated.
@Potcy @wendelsway1 @MLHS_Luke @ingy56 @4evrblue I think that's him - and I'm pretty sure he did change his name. Not 100% sure, but fairly sure.
I don't post much, but I might be the longest serving member here now - a few years back our 'join date' was attached to our avatars. I think only 'Carltonthebear' was here before me. For some reason my sign up date was earlier than Alec's!
@ingy56 @Potcy @4evrblue He still posts here. It's the guy with the Breaking Bad avatar..I'm drawing a blank, I should know his name..
@dlb Mad @Cameron19 http://i.imgur.com/7O3zD.jpg(Why so serious?)
@Cameron19 @dlb Mad FYI He is NOT a 'Tronna' boy. He is from Huron County. Exceptionally big difference.#HCRepresent

Solid game boys. The questions remain: which team will we see for the rest of the year - this one, or the one where there's no effort. Do we try to sell high after a long win streak or see if they can turn it around?
