@ingy56 @XxxxxnewBad goaltending by Lindback even makes good players like Stamkos look poor, simple fact poor goaltending makes superstars look pitiful.

@Gilbey93 @ingy56Dustin Brown may be like Heatley where his skills have eroded so bad that should retire.

Bishop should win the Vezina trophy. No way Tampa Bay makes the playoffs without Bishop, they are plain pitiful
@Mcost61 @mr_hanieCarlyle thinks he is right and the other 29 coaches are wrong.

I have noticed that the playoff teams cover point shots, so that the D-men just don't blast away at the goalies. How I wish that will be the case next season, with the Leafs.
@Bruffins @dlb meh@wendelsway1Average goal-tending also makes Stamkos the scrap goat for the team.
2 days, 19 hours ago on Toronto Marlies to face Milwaukee Admirals in Round 1
I am still upset that Rick Dudley left the Leafs for the Habs. I think he butted heads with the current Leaf scouting staff, and decided its best to leave. Dudley seems to spot talent, something Leafs lack.
Reilly will be the first player teams would want in any trade scenario.

Reilly is the player that would get ROR from Colorado.
How many people here would do that trade ??
@Jmessih All accept Rielly, were in Carlyle's doghouse during the season, now chosen WTF ???

1 week ago on Morning Mashup: Drafting in the 8 spot
@rustynail @GreekGod@wendelsfistI still find it incredible Leafs giving up 40 plus shots a game, since November, and Carlyle didn't give a shit.
@wendelsfist The Leafs must be worst collection of players, ever, since even expansion teams gave up less shots in a season. Something doesn't jive.....
If Brennan is named AHL defenseman of the year and was not deemed to help Leafs defense you wonder about Leafs pro scouting, once again.
@Cosmos1973 @wendelsfistBurns coached the Habs...he was not new, when leafs hired him.
@MaxwellHowe Reimer was left alone, due to "swarm defense" as per hockey commentators. Reimer chosen for Team Canada, which still means something.
I see Maurice signed with Jets. They better get a number 1 goalie because Pavelec isn't one. The hound dogs will be nipping at Maurice's heels soon if Pavelec opens the season as their number 1
@Zep2 @CanuckUKinTorontoFor some reason I see Boston being beaten by the Wings. Babcock will out coach Julian.
@CanuckUKinToronto It may not be so cut and dried. If so, Carlyle would have been shown the door like Trotz was. It may be Nonis hanging on to Carlyle and Shanahan sitting on the fence.
I am sure Nonis wants to keep Carlyle. Last night on Sportsnet can't remember who, said Nonis rarely fires coaches.
So Carlyle's future is in Shanahan's hands.
@Wolfman Viola @mr_hanie@mclokiI think "Herman Munster" is a better prospect.
@mcloki @Wolfman ViolaI am surprised you mentioned" Eddie Munster" People do not know who he is.
@MaxwellHowe Adam Proteau states that the Leafs have the second worst prospect pool. This according to the Hockey News Future Watch series based on opinions of NHL scouts and GM's
Apparently Leafs have the second last ranked minor league, prospects. Maybe Shanahan should review amateur scouting ie. Morrison ???!!!
Leafs are in a better position than the other Canadian teams, just look at the mess in those other cities.
For people asking TSN and Sportnet websites both posting Reimer and Rielly have agreed to join Team Canada

Reimer and Rielly chosen for Team Canada. I like to see Reimer play without breakaways, 2 on 1, and open shots from the slot.

Carlyle is still the coach of the Leafs, so write about about Rob Babcock too. :)
I think players tuned out his swarm system. Its was so foreign to them, and no other team in the league was doing it so players tuned out.

If Leafs win the draft lottery, its a sign from the hockey gods that Shanahan will lead the Leafs to the Cup soon.
@dlb meh Your correct about finding another center,because Leafs need secondary scoring, if the top line doesn't score. UFA's available are Bolland and Stastny. Leafs have to target one of these and have to make the right decision. That may be Shanahan's biggest decision.
The term "coach killer" has been applied to various players who do not perform under any coach. How about a term called "player killer" where a coach does not give a player a chance to perform to his strengths, only his weaknesses.
Certain players on the Leafs had their worst careers ever under Carlyle. Carlyle as a "player killer" seems apt.
So whatever happen to Colin Campbell. He was last year's hot commodity ?

@Bobsyouruncle Leiweke's job is the get the best possible executives for positions within the organization. Thats what he is trying to do, with the Raptors and TFC, and now the Leafs, what more can you ask for ?
1 week, 2 days ago on Brendan Shanahan Press Conference Stream
Leafs pro scouts may be worst in the whole league, from Jeff Finger, onwards, some bad free agent signings
Probably more coaches, not making the playoffs, going to be fired in the next few days
@mlclearwater I remember Alan Stanley who was called "snowshoes" never chased the puck in the corners. He just planted himself in front of goalie Bower. He said the they can never score from the corners.

Its a good thing Leafs play in Ottawa, I can imagine the booing at the Leafs, the last game at the ACC.
Hiring DeBoer may save face with the Clarkson signing. Clarkson played well under DeBoer.
@Mind Bomb @mr_hanieHe is still employed last i heard...
Why is DeBoer's picture here, with no explanation ?? Anybody know.
