Nice guy, works hard, loves the game.
Anyone have details on Maple Leafs square? I live up North but am in Toronto next week for business. Staying on Bay Street not far from the ACC. Is it free to go to the square? Do they show every game out there? (Or at least the opener) are there always Leaf fans outside?

@Burtonboy He's on my NHL 14 roster. Good 4th liner. Once put up 20 goals.

@ingy56 Only one who could potentially go is Spencer Abbott. Solid AHL guy, works hard can play on a 4th. Hope he stays.

@MaxwellHowe What a goon that Kessel is.
@LeafErikson @golieguy19 Not directly of course. They could happen in preseason, regular season or in the pressbox if your last name is DiPietro. It just sucks to lose NHL regulars in meaningless games.
6 days, 5 hours ago on Wednesday Mashup: Undefeated Pre-Season Leafs Head To Ottawa
@MaxwellHowe @golieguy19 I don't know how well that works. 9 preseason games is 13% of the regular season though Buffalo was pretty much out of the playoff race by 13% of the regular season last year.. Seems excessive.
Anyone think that the preseason is getting out of hand? Two inter squad games at the same time? Now we're seeing big injuries from important league guys like Datsyuk. Hard to blame the vets for going half speed. All we need is a Kessel or Bernier injury. Not to mention plugs like Stortini taking runs at Gardiner. Who, by the way, I think Phaneuf got a bit of revenge after that run, took a penalty, but who says he doesn't stand up for his teammates.
Great chance for Frattin

Good fight there from Booth.
He's not bad. Depth goalie.
@Jmessih @Bruffins Bozak would if not for injuries.

@MaxwellHowe Watched a lot of Zach Bratina this year for the Batallion after he came over from Saginaw, he was a solid 2-3 guy, decent scoring touch, good size, a bit invisible in the playoffs though.

@ingy56 @BBirde @TheCanucksnaphook Torts might survive if a new GM comes in an decides to give him a shot. Not likely though. Gilles has to go.
I watched the game on the Anaheim feed. Its amazing how much more respect the Leafs get from the away team broadcast. They wouldn't stop praising Kessel, JVR, Bozak and had a good thing to say about almost any Leaf that touched the puck..
All we get from our "home" broadcasts on CBC is shit about how the wheels are about to fall off the bus.

@Gilbey93 Tampa announcers were blasting us last night for the trade comparing the two players and saying we "ruined" a prospect, where they "saved" a prospect who was already ruined and made the best of it. Good stuff right here.
@hoolihan Looked like he maybe panicked a bit. His problem is he plays with Colton Orr, and for like 4 minutes a night. So when he does get into the offensive zone he can't believe it and gets too excited to make a good play.

@Dink @Jimmy Keating Very few teams have more than a couple of "sure thing" prospects. But every now and again a 4th-7th round pick can become a regular NHL'er. Think Gunnerson. So its worth keeping tabs on them. Especially defensemen and 3rd-4th line guys. They take longer to develop.

@darthNihilus @playoff nut @mcloki @Pent_House @ingy56 No one can score 80 goals in a season now. Are you saying Mogilny>Crosby/Ovechkin/Stamkos ? Its a different world, put any of those guys (or Kessel) in the early 90s and there would be 80+ goal season galore.
