@.Kong. Against the best team in the NHL and the Leafs put up 6 against them. Shots be damned the Buds had their number all game.
1 day, 19 hours ago on GDT: Game #31, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Anaheim Ducks (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@Jordan29 @Cloud09 @Marlies Man Redemption. And if not them, bring on the Habs!
@Jordan29 @Marlies Man Bruins
@Xxxxxnew First time since 2011/12.
@.Kong. @Cloud09 Unfortunately he's not wrong.
Carlyle "despite success I think we have slipped in the past 2 games. We've got to get back to more straight line hockey . " #TMLtalk
@In it to Winnik Both, and neither should really scare the Leafs, or any team in the east for that matter.
2 days, 21 hours ago on Monday Mashup: We’re Streaking
@B_Leaf @Mcost61 So keep on pounding that square peg in the round hole, you'll eventually get it through...
@Great Dane @Burtonboy There are reasons why Bozak went undrafted and signed as a college UFA.
3 days, 2 hours ago on Leafs Notebook – December 15th
@deedrag @Kadrific Yea you're right, 6 back in January.
Don't know why I thought 2004.
3 days, 18 hours ago on GDT: Game #30, Los Angeles Kings at Toronto Maple Leafs (5 p.m., SNO)
@LeafsForLife @Jay_Berg Jake has at least until the end of next season before I really make a decision on what he is.

@Kadrific @Bring the Cup Home @hometeem @Sexyhairyman Kessel>JVR>Bozak
@Jay_Berg UFA contract year, finally getting a shot on the top pair, and crossed that infamous 300 game mark Carlyle has talked about not too long ago.
@Sexyhairyman How many have they let in??
@Dogger That needs to change, hopefully Phil can at some point have a Yzerman like revelation and learn the importance of playing a full 200' game.
@Kadrific @Cloud09 His linemates are playing a big part in this as well. Not to say Kadri isn't putting the work in but to really see if he is a changed player you have to put him with a defensive liability like Kessel/JVR and see if he can resist temptation and still play a defensively responsible game.
@Kadrific A little early to declare that but he has certainly had a great few weeks.
@MaxwellHowe @MikeGartner11 Hahahaaha!
1 week, 2 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Burkie Bowl
@djamon @Cloud09 I guess we are going to have a different opinion on this. I think he was the perfect fit for this market.
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 You're making shit up, find me the outrage when Burke said that?
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 There was no story...
@Jay_Berg @Optimustic @Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 I'm sure they would have as well. Look back at 2012, Yakupov, Murray, Galchenyuk, Reinhart, Rielly, if drafting today would you change the order?
@Optimustic @Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 Oh no the pressure!!
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 I think you'd be hardpressed to say any of those 4 picks ahead of Rielly are sure fire better players than Morgan. I don't doubt one bit that they had him at #1. And that's pure bullshit that you thought up about putting huge pressure on Rielly.
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Cloud09 @djamon Are you George Cope??
@djamon @Cloud09 Well the sideshow sure hasn't left since he's been gone. At least Burke would deflect the pressure on the players to himself. And it's just speculation that players don't like him, I heard more guys going to bat for Burke than ever putting him down.
@djamon @Burn_the_Loov_Boats That's what was great about him.
@Marlies Man @Bring the Cup Home Kinda speaks for the lack of youthful talent and draft picks the Leafs have had in the past few years.
1 week, 5 days ago on Game Review: Game #25, New Jersey Devils 5 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3
@WesternDP @Cloud09 JVR+Gardiner=$8.25M > Hall $6M
Hall at age 22 scored 27 goals/80 points, 1.07ppg on a shitty Oilers team > JVR at age 22 scored 11 goals/24 points, .56ppg points in an injury plagued season
It wasn't that long ago JVR was considered injury prone. Hall is the better player and the Leafs come out with extra cap space. JVR is replaced with a better player and Percy gets a spot on the roster. Oilers get two young capable players locked in team friendly contracts. Works for both teams, which is what you look for in a trade.
@Sebastian James @Cloud09 Definitely one of the better ones. I'm kinda hoping they refresh the logo at some point. Been the same for over over 30 years, time for a little update.
@Sebastian James God those were ugly jerseys.
When listening to Freidman this morning it got me thinking about Taylor Hall and what it would take for Edmonton to part ways with him. With the Leafs I think you'd have to start with JVR and go from there. Add in Gardiner and someone like Kozun/Frattin/Abbott and I think you got a solid starting point to begin negotiations. Doubt that that alone would do it but getting a guy like Hall would be worth it IMO.
@wendelsfist Komarov, or Winnik.
1 week, 6 days ago on Game Review: Game #25, New Jersey Devils 5 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3
@Burtonboy @Cloud09 @Potcy @Cameron19 Drop him down the lineup. 3/4th line duty until he proves otherwise. Not much else you can do beside sitting him.
@wendelsfist @Cloud09 @Burtonboy @Potcy @Cameron19 Really any team for that matter. Bozak does this every game and is one of the reasons why that line struggles so much defensively.
@Burtonboy @Cloud09 @Potcy @Cameron19 Pretty sure it was Anthony who said a few weeks ago that JVR put on some weight. He looks slow and lethargic out there, might have something to do with it.
@Burtonboy @Potcy @Cameron19 @Cloud09 Bozak needs to take some responsibility in his own zone and stop constantly trying to pick passes off for breakaways. He'll get the odd one and make it look nice but more often than not he misses and puts himself out of position.
@Potcy @Burtonboy @Cameron19 @Cloud09
@Cameron19 @Cloud09 Bozak and JVR are both healthy, capable and 2/3 of that line. Both did jack shit all night long.
@Burtonboy Leo for Captain?? :P
Good review Nikhil. Lupul-Kadri-Santorelli were flying tonight, too bad that top line couldn't respond with the same effort.
@wendelsfist @Cloud09 @DeclanK Nah, I think he finally bites the bullet.
2 weeks ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wildcard
@DeclanK Heads are gonna roll.
@Potcy @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy @TorontoMapleLeafs Yea pretty much.
@Potcy @Cloud09 @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy @TorontoMapleLeafs Listen, I'm not going to get into this, nor am I the one to be explaining all that went down however take into account that there is always two sides to every story, and as far as pushing the envelope it would more be along the lines of personal attacks towards the moderators/owners of this site. But that's as far as I'm taking this.
@Anthony Petrielli @Potcy @Burtonboy @TorontoMapleLeafs In the middle of August...
@Potcy @Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy @TorontoMapleLeafs A few guys weren't following the rules, pushed the envelope and got banned. Once that happened a good chunk of the regular posters jumped ship and moved on to a different Leaf fan site. That's the short version.
@wiski @Cloud09 Yea but Friedman is on the Fan
