@Mcost61 @Cloud09 @Luke_R I turned it on right after work last night and in less than a minute between Dreger and Simmons I was yelling at the radio.
14 hours, 28 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
@Mcost61 @Luke_R He said the exact same thing last night.

@Komas Taberle @wiski Kessel!
3 days, 11 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@PepTalk Broken heart.
Carolina is terrible. Locked in for McDavid.
@BoneChompski @Zep2 Nope
@Dogger The "Hab Effect"
@Komas Taberle @Cloud09 @Cameron19 Doubt Holland or Panik were going to be the ones doing that.
@Komas Taberle @Cameron19 Polak should have fed him a few shots after he ran Lupul.
@docmma @Cameron19 Thought it should have gotten a few more too.
@Savo43 @Cloud09 @Wilbur So doesn't that kinda debunk Wilbur's claim of Carlyle having a shit fit?
@Wilbur Isn't Winnik playing on the right and shoots left?
So does the quality of your opponent get factored into any of these stats Anthony?? Would have to think there would be more value to a "zone assist" if it was against an opposing teams 1st line as opposed to their 4th. Or is it pretty cut and dry at this point?

@Bruffins All I see is Franson watching that puck go into the net ;)
@Burtonboy Bettman must be PISSED right now, considering the jabs he was giving the NFL.
@Burtonboy Holy shit, first I've heard of that.
@dlb Mad Wouldn't surprise me if he is nursing an injury. He was banged up before the season started and it could be dragging on.
@Mind Bomb @Leafs_17 Bozak has zero defensive ability. Should be on the 3rd line, not being matched up against Tavares tomorrow.

@TheLoovTrain @Cloud09 Who is Polak breaking up plays against?? Is it Crosby/Tavares/Zetterberg or Sutter/Nielsen/Sheahan? Having these stats are nice but if the type of opponent isn't taken into consideration you are going to end up creating more problems than solving them. So far Line 1 has faced the best players from the opposition, if you want to pair Gardiner/Polak against those types of players that's fine, I just don't see it working out as well as the numbers would make it out to be.
@dlb Mad Lol, been asking to see this for at least a year now.
@TheLoovTrain @Cloud09 Again, worth a shot but I don't give that group much of a chance if they happen to turn the puck over and the rush starts going the opposite way.
@Bruffins They seem to be physically out matched every time. Opponents have no problem muscling them off pucks once they get deep into their own zone.
@TheLoovTrain That first group is still going to get light up like a christmas tree against a guy like Tavares. Still worth a shot though.
@Burtonboy @TheLoovTrain Might as well roll 7 defensemen. It would get more use out of the roster.
@TheLoovTrain Ugh, Phaneuf-Franson. Make it stop ;)
@Mind Bomb Whole roster needs a shake up IMO. Aside from line 3 and for the most part line 2 there isn't much going for the Leafs at the moment.
@wyatt956 @Cloud09 Can't say I'm a fan of it. Rolling 3 lines and burning out the top end of the roster isn't something I'm looking forward to if this trend continues.
6 days, 9 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
Thanks for the review Alec, don't know what to make of this team right now. Everything seems to be in disarray, except for the third line.
@.JVR. @Yaknowwhat You make it sound so easy.
6 days, 9 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
@.JVR. Just another loss.
So 5 games in and back into old habits. I hope the coaching staff realize that Franson has no business being matched up against Zetterberg. Hank's stellar weekend is no surprise considering he was given all sorts of room in both games.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Loric76 We can, just means a couple of guys like Ashton, Frattin or Panik will have to go on waivers.
@wendelsfist @Cloud09 @Yaknowwhat In a half season... If the Leafs played a half season last year they would have made it again. Spending money on a data mining team and guys to analyze the data has nothing to do with how guys play on the ice. This team looks a lot like what we had to end the season last year and by all accounts there hasn't been a whole lot of change yet so it's easy to assume Carlyle can't get these guys to play the way he wants to. The coach is always the 1st to go, his time is coming soon.
@wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat This is tongue in cheek right? You don't seriously believe this do you?
@Yan28 @Cloud09 Players are now talking about it publicly. Sellouts mean sweet fuck all if there is no one cheering.
6 days, 10 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
@Yan28 And just as sad
Lupul on atmosphere at Joe: "It's fun. It's probably better energy than we get back in Toronto. It's nice when we're here or in Buffalo."
What a crappy way to lose.
@.JVR. @Cloud09 Rinse/wash/repeat. Same general group of players, same results. Do you not get frustrated year after year of watching the same garbage??

@DeclanK @wiski Doing his part in helping the Leafs throw a blanket on the growing fire in Leafs Nation.
@.JVR. @Jay31 2-3 and a whole bunch of disappointing seasons before it.
@Anthony Petrielli @Cloud09 Who knows, lots of weird stuff going on right now.
@wiski @.JVR. @Mitch92 The game started off fine then Detroit scored and it was downhill from there.
@Anthony Petrielli @Cloud09 Would be a big pill for Nonis to swallow. I don't think I'd want him to be in charge of a teardown.
@.JVR. @Cloud09 He might slow down at some point but right now he fits in quite well and if the goal is to win games he is a better option than a couple of established NHL'ers on the team. If he starts to have a string of poor games send him down but right now there is no reason to.
@.JVR. @Cloud09 I like Percy's mobility. He doesn't need to be a PP force, just be competent. Franson is a liability, regardless how well he performs on the PP.
@.JVR. @Mitch92 With Franson around he still would get PP1 minutes and takes time away from either Percy or Gardiner.
So if the Leafs continue to be a .500 team, do you still try to keep the course and win with the current roster? Or move some big names and take advantage of a very strong draft? I think it's a tough call that is gonna have to be made at some point this year.
@Burtonboy Or in some combination of that. Franson needs to sit, would only seem fair given the Gardiner situation.
@mr_hanie @Cameron19 1st line off to a slow start means lots of goals against.
1 week ago on Game Day: Game #5, Detroit Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., SNO)
@Cameron19 It's probably because this team for the past decade has been for the most part a middling disaster who can't tank or win properly.
