Exactly. Entertainer for sure. He doesn't have a lot of technical expertise but he's a riot imo

O'Neil tells it like it is and doesn't think before he talks. As a result he says some pretty ridiculous things and is wrong a lot.
Nonetheless I like the guy and enjoy listening to him. You don't necessarily have to agree with someone all the time to like them. Hes got kind of a Don Cherry thing going people like to listen to him whether they like him or hate him.
Brewer is finished
Ottawa's D has been shit for most of the season. Their best dman is Karlsson who is the smallest. Cowan is awful
3 days, 1 hour ago on Saturday Mashup: 3rd overall within reach, Cameranesi with 2-pt game in UMD regional semifinal win
We have drafted a few decent first rounders but that's about it. We have no depth and no late round finds that virtually every other team seems to find here and there.

Best college player in 20 years
This is the most spineless team I've ever seen in any professional sport. There's a couple guys who care, Komarov, Phaneuf, MacWilliam. Nobody else does. Especially the first line. Just beyond pathetic. I'm embarrassed for them just a complete joke of a team.
Blow it the fuck up. To pieces

I think a Berglund for Lupul trade could work in some form

Greening sucks no thanks
Like I said before he won't get away with it much longer. He's not a young guy anymore
Let's call a spade a spade he's out of shape. Not really an issue now but once he gets older he won't be able to get away with it anymore
Or maybe you don't? Maybe the problem from the first place is ownership cares too much about public opinion. Maybe it's best to stick to the plan and ignore the noise. History tells us if you draft high and draft properly the rebuild WILL work. It's just a matter of when. Fans will come around when that happens and no matter how bad things are on the short term thr building will still be full (relatively speaking)
Our draft pick this year may help with that
Rather stay the course and hope for the best then keep doing the half ass rebuilds which we know never ever work.
Dreger must not actually watch hockey. Brewer is the worst dman on this team that has a terrible Dcore. He's had a nice career and seems like a good guy but man he is the definition of washed up and finished. He's done
He also never had a big ceiling like many would prefer out of a first round pick.
Same thing may happen with Gauthier. Again I don't mind the player but as a first round pick his ceiling is a 4C? Not a lot to get excited about

Because we traded additional assets to move up for a player we were already reaching for
Biggs is the type of player that I feel this new management regime would never take in the first 2 rounds. I'm not against a Biggs type player but we need to take guys with skill and high upside at the beginning of the draft.
The last time we had two #1 picks we took Biggs and Percy. That'll give you a hint as to why it sucks
"Im not sure why you say it sucks to be a fan right now"
He has some off ice partying issues. Not sure that's the type of leadership we need. Especially given what's happened with Kadri
Also Hutchison is likely going to be opening day starter
Ted Cruz is a joke along with the entire global warming denying, gun loving, minority hating Tea Party. I'll enjoy watching him get torn apart
You are missing the point. For every bozak there are 10 Hanson's, Irwin's, etc.
Not saying this kid will be a bust, simply saying we shouldn't assume he will succeed. Glad we signed him though, doesn't cost us anything.
1 week, 2 days ago on Game 73 Scoring Chances: Senators 5 vs. Maple Leafs 3
Considering Rogers (ie CBC) own the leafs that is especially sad
I know there is no harm in adding just saying we should temper expectations. We all recall Burke claiming every college UFA we signed would be a top 6 forward.
I don't think we should expect much from a college UFA. If he becomes anything it'll be a bonus
As talented as Marner is ill be disappointed if we don't come away with Strome. He's exactly what we need as a future big bodied #1 centre
We don't even know if he's an NHL player yet and even if he is he's a 5-7 dman at most but ya lets label him a future captain...
Lidstrom, Yzerman, Messier, Crosby, Lemieux, etc. None of these guys were fighters. Sorry but you have a very caveman type approach to this
1 week, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #73, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators (7 p.m., HNIC)
What does fighting have to do with being a leader?
So if we had Crosby you wouldnt make him captain because he doesn't want to fight everyone? Gotcha
Given the previous college free agents we've signed im not going to get my hopes up
1 week, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs sign forward Casey Bailey out of college
There's literally no reason to watch. We aren't even playing young guys to see what they can do.
I could care less about Smith, Sill, Kozun, Brennan and company. Just a bunch of AHL washouts playing around our "first line" who have thrown in the towel.
1 week, 4 days ago on Game 72 – SJS 4, TOR 1 – An even worse start for Toronto
It's the same thing over and over and over again though.
I haven't watched a full game in 2-3 weeks. No point in putting myself through this torture anymore
I can't recall if he actually said that words but I think it's fairly obvious
Not sure why people are so critical of Shanny. I think he's been honest about this being an evaluation year so good for him for not making a panic quick fix move.
This is the best scenario moving forward. The core is flawed and will be broken up this offseason.
Time to build the proper way for literally the first time in franchise history. May take 7 years but that's ok if we start drafting properly and building up the middle.
Won't matter when most of our players are gone and we restart with a new core
If they are shit on toronto why all the sudden would they be great on two arguably worse teams?
1 week, 4 days ago on GDT: Game #73, Toronto Maple Leafs vs San Jose Sharks (7:30pm, TSN4)
Nope. Mcdavid and Eichel are generational players and franchise centres. It's not happening
Only way that's happening is if we trade Kessel
Nobody is trading out of the top 2
We need everything so BPA most likely

Honestly I think Buffalo will build with what they have.

Grigorenko is just awful
Well to be fair losing is in our best interest right now and this garbage is Nonis' fault
