@Alec Brownscombe @mr_hanie Kessel has all the tools to be the best player in the league no doubt, but I want him to carry the Leafs on his back like Doug Gilmour did, offensively and defensively.

@Alec Brownscombe @mr_hanie Kessel seems to play by his own agenda, seeing the same thing over and over, coach over coach. Wish he would change but looks like that will never happen.I would like to see Babcock challenge Kessel to be a better player.

I once thought Leafs should go after Yakupov from Oilers, but having another player like Kessel, floating around like Kessel having 2 Kessels would be unbearable to watch being hemmed in by other teams 4th lines.

@Wilbur @mr_hanie @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Mitch92 Seguin may be the only number 1C available...due to his character flaws. Teams do not trade number 1C's.

@Wilbur @mr_hanie @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Mitch92 Would you trade Kessel for Seguin straight up ?
@Wilbur @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Mitch92 Kessel is a great offensive player, but he pouts when he does not score and does not try hard to get the puck back in his own end. This bugs me the most.
@Wilbur @mr_hanie @Mitch92 Kessel has his own agenda but no coach dares him.
@Mitch92 Lupul plays both ways, does not float like a prima donna like Kessel
@ingy56 @mr_hanie The Habs had their way during during WW2, since none served like the Leaf players
@ingy56 @mr_hanie I think Kennedy lost some time due to serving in WW2. as well
@ingy56 @mr_hanie Clancy said Ted Kennedy was the greatest Leaf...he saw them all.
@ingy56 @mr_hanie Smythe won $35,000 and bought Clancy who was one of the best D-men of his era
@ingy56 @mr_hanie I remember Dick Beddoes saying that it was taken as a joke, but it made good headlines.

@ingy56 @mr_hanie I think Habs traded some money to get Jean Beliveau from the Quebec Aces where Punch Imlach was the coach. Another steal.
The greatest trade in NHL history was signing 17 year old Gordie Howe for a Red Wing jacket.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @In it to Winnik If Cliff Fletcher was able to trade Kaberle and get Jeff Carter that would have helped future GM Brian Burke alot

@ingy56 @mr_hanie Kessel can come back in his own zone if one of our D-men has possession
I would move Kessel to centre. That way he can float around centre ice and make the opposing team back off in case a stretch pass gives Kessel breakaways. Kessel is pathetic in his own zone.

@hometeem @mr_hanie An team of AHL players can hem the Leafs first line in the D-zone because all they do is half assed stick checks, then skate away...
Anybody notice that nobody on the first line touches anybody in our own D-zone. They just stand around and watch...
@Wilbur @mr_hanie I take Bozak and Kadri over Desharnais and Plakanec
4 days, 4 hours ago on Game Day: Game #5, Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
@Wilbur Habs are weak at C, but they have Price.
Nobody's mentioned this but Bernier has to be better, hope he shuts out the Wings tomorrow.
I just hope we see a different Leaf effort tomorrow or i see the vultures after Randy's hide....
@Bring the Cup Home @mr_hanie @WendelGilmour Kadri's weakness is still faceoffs.
@Bring the Cup Home @WendelGilmour Maybe play line juggling with the 1st and 4 lines then ???
4 days, 5 hours ago on Game Day: Game #5, Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
Cannot understand why Leafs picked up Panik off waivers, totally baffling
I wonder which D-man sits tomorrow...
@Cameron19 @mr_hanie Phaneuf has lost as step and it really shows up against fast skating teams...maybe because he is playing on the left side....
Frattin is now the forgotten Leaf..Holland has been awful
@Cameron19 Ist line off to a slow start, we are losing and looking bad at losing, just ugly hockey to watch...
@Yaknowwhat Babcock will be next Leaf coach...next season so you cannot fire Randy
@Xxxxxnew Thats coaching
Really disappointed in Phaneuf. He has gone downhill so fast...the slide started late last season...
@Fish Head Phaneuf for Yak.
Not a popular thing now but Orr and McLaren on the 4th line would have been more effective, even with 5 shifts tonight
Bernier will face 40 plus shots against Detroit tomorrow.
Would trading Phaneuf make Leafs D-corps better ?.
@Cosmos1973 You have to forgive that fan...he is a new Leaf fan watching Leafs for the first time
4 days, 6 hours ago on Game Day: Game #5, Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
Panik is still on the team ?
@MaxwellHowe You mean tunnel vision Reilly
Holland looks terrible this season
Phaneuf is slow as molasses now, does not matter which side he plays.
Babcock can coach Red Wings AHL team and they would look good against the Leafs. Babcock the master coach of boxing out the slot.
Gardiner may be a better forward than a D-man. He is the best skater on the team.
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Day: Game #3, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New York Rangers (7 p.m., City TV)
@Yaknowwhat The good play of Percy has made Gardiner look like a weak link
I wonder if Oilers would be interested in Gardiner, to be teamed with Schulz.
Hollard skates by the Ranger player and thinks the post is the most important person on the ice.
I still think Phaneuf has lost his skating ability, he looks so slow now....McDonough can still skate...
The one silver lining...the Leafs not playing the extreme swarm , where the points where wide open....
