Huge Fan of the leafs. Have been watching the games since my dad would sneak me out of bed to watch them play on the black and white tv in the basement.
Even tho last night got out of hand the leafs have been marginally better than last year, and I have really enjoyed watching them cycle on teams. Lets not lose hope yet guys!
3 hours, 49 minutes ago on Game 33 Scoring Chances: Flyers 7 vs. Maple Leafs 4
Why is it that the article says holzer in for Gardiner and then the line up shows gardiner with polak. Just looking for clarification is it holzer or gardiner on the 3rd pairing? Help please
20 hours, 56 minutes ago on GDT: Game #33, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Philadelphia Flyers (7 p.m., CBC)
jay McClement will most likely be all over the puck tonight trying to make the leafs pay for not resigning him. Here is hoping his line gets cycled on by the booth line for 2 min straight!!

@Dogger thanks dogger
@Alec Brownscombe Yeah this could get interesting
Kozun make waivers guys?

When I look at Gardiner's play and see holzer as his partner on the third pairing I wonder why Carlyle can't give them matchups like he did for Fraser Franson 2 years ago and have them succeed. Seems like a very similar pairing to the one two years ago that did rather well

When I watch Holzer's play I like what i see. Rubbing guys out on the boards, Blocking alot of shots and I thought his first pass was comparable to the rest of the team. He also had that nice break out pass to Panik for the goal the other night, and is showing some snarl around the net. I'm not sure what is expected of him from leafs nation but on the third pairing i like him.
He isn't Polak but he is doing a nice job on spot duty!

@ToasterStrudel He crashed the net really well and sort of knifed the puck in. Shot sucked but great job charging the net
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #28, Toronto Maple Leafs 2 vs. Detroit Red Wings 1 (SO)
@Anthony Petrielli AP you think he will get a shot in the lineup?
@Cameron19 @wendelsfist @Bring the Cup Home Capgeek says they have 4.5 mil space as of today. also think oilers first for Gards Reimer is a shit trade for leafs
@Bring the Cup Home I would like to see him signed at 4.5 mil but he will prob sign for 5.2 mil or something like that
@wendelsfist @MLHS_Luke Thanks for saving me 10 minutes!
We need the forwards to pressure the points so their D can't keep strolling in!
2 weeks ago on GDT: Game #26, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks (7 p.m., CBC)
@DeclanK @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 I thought Panik was only noticeable when he made a few big hits. I would also rather see ashton in that spot but Carlyle doesn't seem to trust him . He was hovering around point per game in the Ahl last year and is great on the cycle. Lets hope he gets a fair shot but after some mistreatment and this drugs thing i can't see it
2 weeks, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #25, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New Jersey Devils (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@wendelsfist @Burtonboy @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 i would rather see
Reilly Holzer once polak is healthy havent been a fan of the 7 D games or of Robidas so far
@Scooby64 @Burtonboy @wendelsfist @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 well there is that possibility but, is there not a rule about a claimed player having to stay on the NHL team or else they are back on waivers?
@DeclanK @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 me too! that would be a 4th line that could handle sometime and work the boards
@Cameron19 @Jeff_Mintz What about Carrick? Not ready for 5 min a night yet?
Does anyone else wish that Trevor smith would get sent down so he can actually be the captain of a failing marlies squad and let one of the kids come up?? Tell me im not alone on this? When I look at the roster im pretty happy except for smith. Hopefully he gets sent down when komarov is back
@Yaknowwhat 3 people found dead

@Burtonboy what are you referencing?

@Omac13 @Jeff_Mintz @mike_84 Man I was never saying Gards for Hodgson, just that hodgson could be a nice addition, I have seen him play a few times and he could be a 2nd/3rd line center imo
1 month, 1 week ago on Game Review: Game #16, Toronto Maple Leafs 6 vs. Boston Bruins 1
@Omac13 @mike_84 Well the Sabres suck , and that makes most everyone look like crap. There are lots of good pieces on that team that I would happily add as depth
@mike_84 @Jeff_Mintz Well I didn't fill the lines out but he and Hodgson would alternate and one play wing.
@mike_84 We would be really lucky to get Hodgson. Good player, was captain for team canada, one of the only sabres I worry about when he has the puck
Gardiner would be a big loss but Kadri
as centers would be nice
@DeclanK @4evrblue @wendelsfist I thought Leivo had a few good games and a couple where he was a ghost. I think he would have stuck with the team if he didnt get injured imo

Great write up Anthony. Thanks!

Sadly it seems when the sabres face the leafs its the few games a year that buffalo actually shows up for! I predict 3-2 leafs

Great Read! Always enjoy the notes on players, and the 5 things I think I'd do segment is awesome!!

@Hmmm He was prob mad that he had an 8 second shift, and whats the point in noticing opposing teams tendencies when you never get on the ice to face them? On the flip side maybe if he was doing the things you mentioned he would get more ice time!
2 months ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@Mitch92 @FRyan More like 3rd pairing d men
2 months ago on Saturday Mashup: Round Two, Hopefully Better than Round One
@Burtonboy Why cant we just play ashton instead of pannik damnit!!
@Great Dane This trade is crazy edmonton has been with out a top 4 d man for years so they aren't going to be shipping out their best d man in exchange for phaneuf that would be a lateral move. Reimer would be an improvement to their goaltending but again sending us scrivens for reimer isnt a huge upgrade. What about franson + matt finn for one of their top 6 forwards? That feels like a more realistic trade to me
2 months ago on Game 5 Scoring Chances: DET 4 vs. TOR 1
Im interested to see what the 4th line can do.
2 months, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
So franson out of line up?
@Mitch_S2 @Jeff_Mintz @Cameron19 ok good! Not a huge ashton guy but he has never been given a chance on a line with semi skilled players and I would be disappointed to see a ppg player in ahl get snatched up by another team. At least give him ten games and 10 min a night before they ship him out! just my opinion.

@Mitch_S2 @Cameron19 Mitch did we lose ashton or is this just a if we lose him on waivers convo?
@Mitch92 @Cosmos1973 @mike_84 I dont think you can fault remier both goals were tipped. The second one reimer was in position. or he never would have stopped the intial tip on net.
2 months, 3 weeks ago on GDT: Preseason Game #8, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7:30 p.m., LeafsTV)
@TheLoovTrain @ingy56 Well it seems a foregone conclusion that he is going back to europe since he can't play in the ahl and we have holzer/Granberg/Percy ahead of him in the depth chart. Prob give him one last game then back to Europe
@BrandonCheema @Jeff_Mintz Yeah I hear ya. I think he would be great on a energy/cycle and grind line
@BrandonCheema He broke his orbital bone will be ready for first game of season, surgery not needed
@whalz @Burtonboy I Like this lineup!! Frattin has looked good so far
@Jmessih let him build some chemistry with the marlies players like leivo and brown and get used to the speed of game and size of the ice. MARLIES!
