@CanuckUKinToronto LMAO, I cant believe you are complaining about Marlies playoff coverage. Have you ever watched a game on AHL Live?

@Great Dane Its a long offseason. Training camp will have a lot of surprises.
3 months, 4 weeks ago on Toronto Marlies improve to 8-0: Defeat Stars in Game #1, 5-1
@4evrblue @dlb Reggie @Burtonboy I was at the Ricoh for that game. Could not believe it.
Trade Bolland, we got Sam Carrick.

@wendelsfist Offload the garbage and give the young Marlies a chance. Nothing good will come from UFAs and not 1 trade can make or break a team.
4 months, 4 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs: Buy Low, Sell High
@CanuckUKinToronto Do you watch Marlies games? These guys skate and work hard every shift. Something stats will never show you, but just look at the team, 3rd in the Conference and 3rd straight Division title. Most people didnt even have the Marlies making playoffs at the beginning of the AHL season. Shows you the true characters of the team and the players.

@Reversethecurse13 @4evrblue Watch some Marlies. Ashton will be a dominant bottom 6 in the big leagues. I hope they are patient with his NHL development.

@Jordan29 @Yan28 lol Clarkson 4 times better still equals ZERO
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Poll: Now What?
@CanuckUKinToronto Are you happy with the way the team is built? This isn't a playoff team. We will never win a cup with this line up. We are not the Chicago.
If anybody is interested in watching a real hockey team play, tune in to watch the Toronto Marlies v. Abbotsford Heat at 4pm. I believe its on SN360.
@Cloud09 @Jordan29 Where do I sign?
@Mesmer That's me right there. Couldn't even react to any goals in last nights game. Even the Lups goal, got my table free shots, no smile on my face though.
@.JVR. @Marleafs Its hard to pick between D'Amigo and Ashton. D'Amigo is the best PKer in the AHL, so he will help the Leafs there. Leafs PK is abismal. Not to take away from Ashton, he can PK as well.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #75, Flyers 4 vs. Leafs 2
@.JVR. Best line on the ice for TML. They had some great cycles going.
The way this team is playing right now, Marlies would even run them over. Leafs got way too high on their own fumes throughout this season. Now they are paying the price when it really counts.
Take a look at the Marlies. These guys, right from the start of the season knew that to win, they would have to put in a hard nosed effort night in and night out. This was engrained in their brains. A team with less skilled talent will have to put up a hard battle over 60 min to win games.
Now take a look at the Leafs. They became reliant on luck early on. Great goaltending, timely goals, lucky bounces (at both ends of the ice). They forgot how to defend leads. Now this culture became their existence. These guys cant compete in the last 15 games of the regular season, they dont deserve to compete in the playoffs.
Lets go Marlies!
@ProfessorRance @Marleafs @peterbleafs He should be the one doing the bumping at the net! Lups goes to the net more than Clarkson.
5 months, 4 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #73, Devils 3 vs. Leafs 2
@ProfessorRance @peterbleafs He doesnt go to the net anymore. Clarkson is a bonified sniper now. Havent you seen?
Seriously though, if the player doesnt go to the net 5 on 5, what makes you think he deserves PP time?
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jon5200 He already proved everyone wrong. Everyobody thought he was a #1 goalie. Well, obviously he isnt.
6 months ago on Poll: How are you feeling about the Leafs’ playoff chances?
@CanuckUKinToronto This team always had issues with playing a full game. At the beginning of the season they would show up for the last 30 min, score a few lucky goals and get away with a win (if the goalie was standing on his head). At other times they would come out strong for the first 30 min, have a 2 or 3 goal lead going into the third only to have it evaporate in a few plays. Its not about strong starts or finishes, but a full 60 min effort.
Leafs thought having a top 5 scorer automatically gets you into the playoffs.
@4evrblue @Belfour20 What is not comparable is how the team plays in front of the goalies. Reimer has difficulties with puck control, rebounds and getting a timely whiste for his teammates. Bernier on the other hand is the exact opposite. Has excellent puck control, does not give up rebounds into the slot and is able to get a lot more whistles for his team, either by covering the puck up or deflecting it out of the rink.

@Xxxxxnew Leafs TV ;)
@Doorman @Xxxxxnew I am talking about a curse that goes beyond the player. Leafs plain suck when Clarkson is in the line up. Everytime he is out the team goes on a roll. As soon as Clarky is back in the line up, the team no longer puts in an effort. His "poor me" attitude is weighing on everyone in the dressing room.
Anybody jumping on the "Clarkson is cursed" band wagon? or has that passed?
@TuckerForPunishment I've been a Leaf fan since immigrating to Canada in 1999. In the last 15 years I have seen about 10 games at the ACC. I am on a 5 live game winning streak with the buds! (I was there for JVRs first game against Philly when he steped around Schenn and scored that nasty goal) My only away game for the Leafs was this seasons SO win in Ottawa. That was a great experience, seeing so many Leaf fans in an away building.

@Mind Bomb @-Keon- Its our 6th (?) blow out of the season. How can one stay come? lol I get chirped at work cause the Leafs ate dirt!
@-Keon- I agree. Considering Dallas was 2-8-1 in the last 11, we shouldve had their number. The boys got too soft again. They get way over confident and think they dont have to try to win.
@-Keon- Ford is no longer news, he is entertainment.

Carrick has really stepped up. The game against Chicago, he was a beast in the corners. Amazing forecheck skills.

I was almost sorta looking forward to tonights game. Then I looked at who we are playing... and where. I am cheering for a good effort!
There is only one hope now. A classic Leafs end of season push for a playoff spot.

Under Wilson we were poor defensively because of our systems. Now we are poor defensively because of our execution.
@mattobv Only cause our 4th line always ices the puck lol
8 months, 1 week ago on Game Day Notes: Leafs @ Hurricanes
@vinoa @Marleafs @Mind Bomb @TheCanucksnaphook I am confused. Why wouldnt you play a Selke finalist against the other teams top line?
@Mind Bomb @Marleafs @TheCanucksnaphook Too many guys on here are hating on McClement. Last year you wanted to give him the Selke.
@TheCanucksnaphook Its called a checking line. Its the only way the Leafs can even remotely THINK about winning. Our 3rd line goes up against their 1st, which means our 1st goes up against their 2nd and our 2nd goes up against their 3rd (unless the other team uses a checking line). If we went line for line, power against power we would be last in the league. As for the 4th line, RC thinks he needs face punchers to prevent the other team from running down our talented guys. It is sorta true, because as of right now I do not see any of our top 9 forwards standing up for the guy beside them (unless its Clarkson, but then again he would most likely just open his eyes real wide and stare the guy down).
@vinoa When we had a checking line at the beginning of this season it was McClement, Bolland and Kulemin. No idea where you are getting all this McClement = 4th line.
@vinoa @hoolihan @TheCanucksnaphook The first half of the season Grabbo centred the 2nd line, which was in fact the Leafs checking line. Multiple times McClement played wing on that line. Kadi played protected minutes on the 3rd line (thats why he racked up all those points in the first half). Once Grabbo got into RCs bad books he was slotted down to the 3rd line.
@Burtonboy We did loose that game and Ashton's TOI was 5:10 min including 0:25 on the PK. Not sure how many draws he took but he was the only Leaf with a winning face off percentage (100%!). If we kept Holland at least he could slot in on a higher line if the need be (lets say Kadri stinks it up).

@ingy56 @Burtonboy If anything it should say "Peter Holland was demoted because he is too skilled to be on Leafs 4th line"
@wendelsfist @Burtonboy The goalies are great. Remember when Luongo played on Florida? He would face a similar amount of shots and have a huge SV% even though the team sucked.
