@TuckerForCompassion @Xxxxxnew The Maple Leaf brand is getting to be a joke which totally disgusts me.

@gilmourhalloffame @TuckerForCompassion Leaf fans have prepare for 50 losses or so for the next 2 years at least.

@gilmourhalloffame Detroit probably takes 2 in the top 10 again, this year.

@ElGorcho @mr_hanie NOnis picked Nylander over Ehlers if I re-call.

How the hell do the Detroit scouts always seem to pick the top 10 players, picking so late ?
20 hours, 19 minutes ago on Ron Wilson: “Leafs Rebuild will take 7 or 8 years”
@deedrag Meanwhile Leafs pro scouting and to an extent amateur scouting ( picks traded away) for some reason, get a pass. Minor league development of draft picks has been terrible.

@Markovv55 @mr_hanie Maybe looking for a broadcast gig. He sees how Healy hates the Leafs so why not.

@Burtonboy Has PK Subban ever get fined, or the league says the team is exempt ???
22 hours, 52 minutes ago on Ron Wilson: “Leafs Rebuild will take 7 or 8 years”
With the Leafs rebuild, it may be 15 years with one playoff appearance, what great management, scouting and development the Leafs have !! This may turn out to be worse than the Ballard years. That's the sad part. The Ballard years was done on purpose because Ballard was cheap.

@traNsplantEdneWfie Canada has a lot of NHL teams now. When I was a kid it was Leafs across Canada...times have changed.
1 day, 1 hour ago on Maple Leaf Hangout Season 2 Episode 3
I notice that in sports stores in Toronto, the Raptors merchandise is always flying off the shelves and Maple Leaf stuff is left, as an after thought. In fact when I see a Maple Leaf toque I am laughing to myself. The Maple Leaf brand is in the gutter. I wonder when the owners, will show lack the patience, and tell Shanahan enough of his "rebuild " plan.
@Luke_R @Zep2 @mr_hanie Thats why I cannot trust those posters who want Dylan Strome

@Luke_R @mr_hanie You should be the one predicting, the Leaf draft picks.....
1 day, 20 hours ago on Leafs Notebook – March 4
I still want to see that poster back on this board, who had Morgan Rielly as Leafs number 5 pick. I do not believe some posters who see a You Tube video and can claim that makes a player a great pick. I learned my lesson after watching videos of Yakupov in his draft year. The poster who picked Morgan Rielly saw him play LIVE, not on You Tube.
@DeclanK @Xxxxxnew Montreal had Jacques Plante, Rogie Vachon and Ken Dryden and Patrick Roy, now Price, so no wonder if a goalie does not meet these standards the Montreal media is critical....
2 days, 18 hours ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@Xxxxxnew People forget Pat Burns was tarred and feathered out of Toronto....
I can see the MSM media asking McDavid, if gets drafted by Buffalo or Arizona " How do you like playing for a loser organization" or "How can you play for such a miserable team" Good luck to McDavid answering those questions.
@Yaknowwhat @TuckerForPunishment Dragging the Leafs down to the old Harold Ballard days....
2 days, 20 hours ago on Phil Kessel, Kyle Dubas speak out on media treatment in Toronto
@.Kong. Montreal media are worse...they get on you if the players do not try to speak a bit of French or at least try....
When Leafs had a terrible team in the 1980's I am glad twitter was not around, then, Wendel Clark would have been crucified as being a loser.....
@Radar O'Rielly For the next 2 years I would say....
I remember the rumours about Brian Burke and some sports reporter that started in twitter and then the MSM media picked it up. I believe Burke sued for slander.....
@TheLoovTrain @mr_hanie Just saying other GM's are not fools, to take on a 6 year contract at 7 or 8 million or Lupuls at 5.25 million is financial disaster for teams to take on.
3 days, 1 hour ago on Deadline passes with core largely in tact
@TheLoovTrain @mr_hanie Just wondering if Leafs had a coach like say Bruce Boudreau, this core would respond. Its very difficult in this cap age to trade out of mistakes. You have to live with what you have....
Looking at the core, they seemed to respond much better under Carlyle than Horachek. Even Polak and Phaneuf looked better under Carlyle. Would a better coach ( ie. Babcock) make this core better???
Horachek may end up as the worst coach in history of the Leafs, which may be on purpose, anyway......
Buffalo could not trade Cody Hodgson the future franchise player, former CHL player of the year, and the player I wanted for the Leafs in his draft year. I was watching You Tube highlights then.....

I still think Nonis will be Leafs GM next September.....No GM candidates out there now....
Toronto SUN will have this as front page news tomorrow.....

Nonis will hold a presser about this Jokinen trade...so stay tuned....
I would love to see Ron Wilson hired by TSN to go after Sportnet's Glen Healy...what an entertaining thought....
@drummond @ConnorCrisp So should Phaneuf and wife
3 days, 22 hours ago on Deadline Thread II: Dion Phaneuf to Detroit Rumours
@Sharky_77 @ConnorCrisp I believe that came from a poster in this very site.....
I hope Polak is traded. Should fix that awful trade for Gunersson

@Burtonboy @ingy56 @mr_hanie @TuckerForPunishment Leafs never had a farm system since 1967
@TuckerForPunishment @The_Polish_Cannon Luke Schenn prefect example.
@ingy56 @Burtonboy @mr_hanie @TuckerForPunishment The problem may be fans like us who say players like Loov, Granberg and Bibeau should be on the Leafs next season. Still remember fans wanting Christian Hansen as our 2nd line center.
@ingy56 @mr_hanie @TuckerForPunishment Leafs tend to rush players to the NHL, look at Granberg, no way he is an NHL defenseman
@ingy56 @TuckerForPunishment Yes still take Nashville's and Detroit scouting staff any day of the week
@TuckerForPunishment Thats why tanking is not so easy as it sounds, you have to have 5 or 6 strong drafts in most rounds not just the first round.....
If Nonis just trades Jokinen for a draft pick, he may be satisfied.....
People wanted Holzer traded for a 7th round pick. That pick may never even make the Marlies. So keep Holzer for next season as a 7th D-man as a backup.
I like to see what Nonis can do tomorrow. Does he run and hide or play ball with the big name GM's
4 days, 13 hours ago on GDT: Game #63, Toronto Maple Leafs at Washington Capitals (7 p.m., CityTV)
@Yaknowwhat I keep Horacheck so Leafs can finish dead last to maybe get the 1st pick next draft...We should easily lose 60 games.
I notice Horachek not too concerned about Leafs being shutout and losing, seems to accept it quite readily in his pressers.....
Is it possible Horachek being told by Shanahan that you have to lose and be shutout and just tell the players to go through the motions. No coach can coach a team to not score any goals.....
@Yaknowwhat Horachek worst coach in Leaf history, so the tank is working should lose the next 15 games and score 8 goals in those 15 games
Polak terrible skating around like a chicken with his head cut off on the PK
