@wiski @TuckerForCompassion I'm cunfused with Bernier. He looks better than James but I believe James is the better at making the big saves. Reims is going to be a starter one day for sure.
3 days, 2 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
I wore my Reims sweater to the game and when he came in he was unreal. He almost had the one he let in too. But he was on his game. I think he and Scrivy feed off eachother. We should have just kept the two. They made a great duo IMO.
@wiski @Yaknowwhat Has he been on lately? Another westerner finding it hard to jump on the tank wagon? The game I was at was half full of guys like that.
@Yaknowwhat Thanks man.
@Yaknowwhat I'll take that too. Although we are going to do it a little different and score two first and be up 2-zip after 1.
@Yaknowwhat And I'm limiting myself to 20 posts max per day on here for a while. I've become groomzilla as I finally proposed to my partner. We're getting married on our 20th anniversary.
@Yaknowwhat And bad makeup. Thanks man. Feeling great and ready for Connor.
@Yaknowwhat Comes with age and losing.
@wiski @TuckerForCompassion For the Leafs? If so that's great. I wanna see how he performs.
@wiski @TuckerForCompassion I catually paid 300 a piece about 4 months ago and was going to sell them. Had a buyer for 250 a piece but decided to just go. Took my 3 youngest boys and they had a hell of a time. They are Oil fans too so they got to see both. But they have been to many Oilers games. But this was their first taste of the Leafs live.
@BoneChompski @TuckerForCompassion It was actually a lot of fun. Sure it sucked to go down early and never come back but the atmosphere and the seats were fucking killer. We were 15 rows up from attacking blue line across from the benches. Holy fuck can Gards skate. He did this crasy high speed backwards to forwards shit in warm up just before leaving the ice and it was unreal.
Where is Casey Bailey playing right now? Looks like an interesting snag.
Couldn't get passports for my kids in time Costa Rica so we went to Victoria, BC for a week. But before we left.......
I'm with stupid.
3 days, 3 hours ago on GDT: Game #74, Minnesota Wild at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
It hurts to hear Leafs Nation cheer against my team. Sorry, but it does and nothing can change that. But I'm going to respect your right to do what ever you want cause I know you all love the team as much as me.
Now I'm gone. I promise. Just needed to say that cause it truly explains my sentiment.
2 weeks ago on Game 68 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Sabres 3 (SO)
GTG go to airport hotel now. Se ya's all when I get back. They can lose all they want while I'm gone and get that pick. I won't be following at all. (yeah right) Cheers guys and thanks for the great chats.
How many in their processing of greif have taken any blame? I at least have in admitting I got carried away these past few seasons focusing on the negative constantly.
@dlbu dlbu E The offensive side of the game is much easier to learn. Most of those forwards don't know what D is.
@nrandreycharles @TuckerForCompassion @HeatherRickAkin Maybe I just wanna cheer? And never lose the want or need to do so? That is why I'm a fan. I know there is a future and a big picture but the present always matters to me. Me cheering has absolutely no bearing on the outcome. If I knew me cheering actually meant this team was going to fail I wouldn't. But I think that the lack of true cheers these past couple of seasons has hurt us and helped the failure. I'm not just some proline beer drinking jock sports fan.
@dlbu dlbu E @TuckerForCompassion Yeah. He's my apprehensive pick. He looks like the real deal.
@Xxxxxnew Guys like Kadri come to mind. He just walked around everybody and scored on shitty goalies.
@Xxxxxnew Thus making it hard to truly judge the forwards. I wouldn't want to be the guy picking.
@phaneufoundlander @TuckerForCompassion @Bruffins That was no last place team. We're you around then? Those guys were never out of a game. Always found a way to come back. Unfortunately it didn't happen but man oh man was it a hell of a ride.
@Xxxxxnew Excellent point. It is harder to get a handle. And Dmen have different kinds of rolls in the pro's and those skillsets may not present themselves till later on.
@dlbu dlbu E @TuckerForCompassion I wasn't being an ass. I was hoping you had proof. I'm scanning the draft history and you thoery seems correct though.
@HeatherRickAkin The lottery will be what it will be. It's nice to have something to cheer. I was really pumped after last nights game. Was that denial or just acceptance?
@phaneufoundlander @TuckerForCompassion @Bruffins That wasn't just a round or two dude. That's the best team I've ever seen in Blue and White. That video is gold. No lol's from me.
@dlbu dlbu E @TuckerForCompassion Do you have anything to back this up?
@dlbu dlbu E @TuckerForCompassion I'm 2 behind. So the clock hasn't started yet. lol
With all forwards but one D in the top 5 doesn't that say something of the rarity of highly rated Dmen? I don't know how many top 5 dmen there have been in the past compared to F's or even more specifically C's..
@phaneufoundlander @TuckerForCompassion How he faced even the mild criticism is beyond me. That guy was a champion in my books.
@phaneufoundlander @TuckerForCompassion Sorry. That is not my fault. A real disgrace the way he went out here but the fans got their chance to let him know how they felt for him.
@phaneufoundlander @DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion The cup is the final stage. Duh.
@DeclanK @Xxxxxnew I didn't love Burke like most but I did not like the decision to let him go. We had the best team I've seen in a while. And wonder a lot. What would have happened if we had beaten the B's? Or even what would BB done that offseason different to Dave. Cause we all know how Dave did.
@dlbu dlbu E @TuckerForCompassion It is a real dilema. But hopefully Hunter knows best. All our faith is in him now.
@Bruffins @TuckerForCompassion Actually I've been watching tons of old stuff lately. Catching my son up on the great times of the past and explaining to him why I have so much passion. He fucking hates Kerry Fraser now too. lol
I know you're all great fans. That's why you come here.
And I will admit I did fall of the wagon thismorning and went right to that Mirtle guy and vented here. I trying guys. I really am.
@DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion I say we take the higest player rated at the time. Look at Chicago's D too.
@Knights2Leafs @TuckerForCompassion @DeclanK I've been able to walk away many times from here. This is a time when you need a place like this. Like I said. This is a fantasy. A game we all love. I'm not walking around like some miserable idiot in real life cause of this. Get real people.
@Bigfoot_for_1C @TuckerForCompassion @Bruffins You're absolutly right. You need to show that not tell. Sorry.
I'm going to get away in a few hours and when I come back hopefully we can work on this more. But for now I'm going to force myself to partake in the regular convo and bite my tongue. Thanks. I'm already progressing.
@DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion Then help me see the light then guys. I'm not seeing it. Don't mock me but help me. This puts me at #4 already.
@Bruffins @TuckerForCompassion Let me leave first. K? lol
I'm a good guy. I'm just telling a different story from everyone else right now.
Can I be the guy who's devastated and angry with the media and defends his players to the end and shows his greif in a way that doesn't involve being disrespectful to the entire situation? And not feel like I'm losing respect on here too? Cause I don't want to greive like everyone else? Can I feel pitty for the fanbase and it's behavior and keep the respect I've earned on here? I'm not this guy right now. I had a great post to like ratio on here and always has something funny or witty to say. But all I can do now is be disgusted in how everyone is behaving.
@Knights2Leafs @TuckerForCompassion @DeclanK This tank is a form of some greif denial thingy. I can't greive that way. But my friends are. And it's ripping me apart. In this little world anyhow. And it does bleed into everyday life as well.
@DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion I've found a narrative. But that narrative from you moderators isn't possible and I know it. You guys don't have 100's of millions of dollars tied up in an executives and corporation. If you guys were to stand up to the media and counter with somethinf original you would get eaten alive. I know this isn't your fault but it pissed me off nonetheless and makes this not a desired location of mine anymore and I am sadly leaving.
So there you all have it. I'm addicted to this place like many but don't like the taste anymore. And am quitting. Thank you for the years of great fun MLHS. But nothing lasts forever. Keep your chin up Wendelsway. You're a true fan. And BB and wiski and rusty, and cam. I'm sure I've missed a few others. Lescot and unclebob. But anyways. Cheers everyone. It's been a blast. Keep it classy.
@DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion I've lost a lot of respect for this place lately. Maybe I am fighting an imaginary enemy here. But something has changed on this place. A lot of great respectful honorable posters have gone MIA this past year and it's a shame. There are a few that remain but too few. Maybe this place has also outgrown me. Really sad cause this place has been an important escape for me for years. I also notice that MLHS has lost a great many bloggers as well. And aren't replacing them and it becomes more MSMish every passing day. I will however praise the fact the comments aren't flooded with BS like most others sites. Maybe it is actually time for me to hang up my skates here at MLHS and this trip will help me detox from this addiction that has gripped me for 6 years. It was fine when hope existed. But this tank hope? Just doesn't do it for me.
@DeclanK @TuckerForCompassion Maybe.
