@Cameron19 @LN-093 @Mattmark This one feels different though.  I've never seen police officers guarding bus stops before.

@Mattmark In Toronto, I've noticed police officers standing at bus stops.  They're taking this really seriously.  We're in a different world now or should I say the world has caught up to Canada.

@docmma Right now I like Bernier's game more but symbolically if we win having Reims in net would be great because of the game 7 collapse.

@sniperstar @LN-093 I'm a Gardiner fan but it does seem like he's the odd guy out?

I feel like giving up on Kadri or Gardiner is like this cartoon:

@ingy56 @docmma @LN-093 I probably would've ran too but the shooter had a winchester shot gun.  People could have jumped him or grabbed the neck of the rifle?

@DJBrianBurke @MikeGartner11 @LN-093 @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli I may be biased but most of hockeys stars have come from Ontario.  Hello? Bobby Orr, Gretzky?

@DJBrianBurke @MikeGartner11 @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli Ya, ridiculous.  And why is it so hard for the Coyotes to leave Arizona when it was so easy for the Canadian teams to leave?  Did the NHL even think twice? Ugh, don't get me started.

@DJBrianBurke @LN-093 @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli Yup, don't get me started.  It's why it's hard for me to get excited about the raps when you know the cards are stacked against them.  Lebron got his way, even though Cleveland wasn't a strong team to go to, they magically win the lottery and will be in the final this upcoming season.

@DJBrianBurke @LN-093 @Jmessih @Anthony Petrielli The NBA is like soccer.  There's a grey area of referee's calls when you call a charge versus calling an illegal defense.  The refs can call it whichever way they want and no one will be the wiser.

@Jmessih @DJBrianBurke @Anthony Petrielli I like the raps but Cleveland winning the draft lottery again proved to me the NBA is fixed.  The raps won that game 7 last year but the refs changed the outcome.  Even Donaghy said it:

@wiski Sounds like he's already got a team which is why he's leaving.  Speaking of the jays, the rumour is they're raising ticket prices to re-sign Melke.

@Anthony Petrielli @wendelsfist I read Bruce Springsteen or someone upgrades a bunch of fans' seats from the back to the front row because they are the "real fans".  The leafs should do something like this.  I would heckle the opposing teams until they cry.

Philly hurting for defensemen.  Who realistically would we want from Philly?  They're not going to trade Simmons.

@Mcost61 If an opposing player jumps into your bench you should be allowed to rough him up without penalty.

@dlb Mad @LN-093 The puck must jump off the stick differently than a wrist shot which also suprises the goalies.  Kessel's shot is like a sling shot?

@ingy56 @LN-093 @DeclanK Ok, so that would be a huge advantage to Kessel.  The goalie has less time to setup before he shoots.

@DeclanK Kessel moves so little so the goalies can't read where he's aiming for.

@DeclanK @wendelsfist I don't have any stats but just from watching, it appears they lose a lot of face-offs in their zone.  I wish we had a Steckel-like centre for the fourth line and crucial face-offs.

@TorontoMapleLeafs @LN-093 @Bruffins He's had 2 goals already called off.  I don't think Carlyle was using him on the power play last year so he'll definitely get more goals.

@Black_Hawk @LN-093 @Burtonboy I remember the first time I saw a machine gun in person.  I was a youngster backpacking in Europe and there were guards in Paris everywhere with machine guns.  They had trouble with Algerian extremists at the time.
