Like the patch for PQ. Think they should have a sticker that they keep for the rest of the season. Maybe thatll give them some luck of the Irish with the big man looking down on them

whos doing better fantasy wise today? Seguin/Benn/Eakins against EDM or Tarasenko/Shwartz/Lethora against OTT?

SHooting percentage may be high because of some, but Kadri and Lupul have struggled as well (below). I think it balances out)

Atta be Calgary!
@wiski @Luke_R @Jmessih Seems like a sustainable effort. They didnt play playoff tempo, so I hope they'd have another gear.
@Jmessih He is a beauty
@wiski @Luke_R @Jmessih Agreed. I give it an 8 outta 10.
@DeclanK @Luke_R Still scramble-ly. Almost seems like the pace of the game not his skating. Thats what I see at least. The guy is 37 and has to decline eventually. ANd I imagine when he does itll be rapid (may have started now)
@Jmessih HAHAHAH "What a stupid rule this is"
@wendelsfist @Luke_R @Jmessih Santorelli looks like a guy who'd play for Calgary. As does Leo, Winnik. Engines.
Sidenote, they need to get 3on3 in OT ASAP cause this game is too crazy to have to end by a skills competition.
@Jmessih @Luke_R Jesus. Talk about a team that plays balls to the wall shift after shift. People dont think theres such thing as character and drive in players, watch this team and you'll take that back.
So Calgary is probably my new second favorite team. What a bunch.
Any number crunchers here know if the numbers are sustainable?
@DeclanK @Luke_R Dion is almost looking better on the left. Does that make me a bad person saying this?
That is possible though.
Robidas sucking ass and not really improving is a pain. He was almost a write in on the top 4, now can barely play bottom minutes it seems. Maybe I am hard on the guy but he seems a step behind, gets crushed, sloppy in front of his net....
@wiski @DeclanK What a goal he scored eh?
That Polak injury really hurts our defense. Dont want to wish an injury on someone, but if it had been Robidas...
@DeclanK @Luke_R @Xxxxxnew I agree too. Dont think they would move him just because he is a centre, young, in a scrawny frame (want to let him build up). Yak and Eberle though I can see moved out in a hurry.
@DeclanK @Luke_R @Xxxxxnew Yep. Think they would keep that, move out Eberle, Yak for other options up front, a goalie and defense. However, they do have some good dmen in the system coming up. They just need to shake up the core. Bad composition, sorta like here.
Maybe they dont like RNH either?
@wiski they need to sleep in to recover from the night befores shakers, can you blame the boys?
@Hmmm @Luke_R @Bruffins Maybe he moves out from Phils place ;)

@DeclanK @Xxxxxnew I'd imagine they trade away Yak, Eberle at least to start. Keep Hall, Drasattl, McDavid. Shake up the core a bit.
@Hmmm @Luke_R @Bruffins Yesssir! Didnt you read the stats?!
@Bruffins Extend him 8 years, 9M per
@DeclanK @Luke_R Best clearing method

@DeclanK @Luke_R THE COPS ARE ON THE WAY, LETS GOO
@djamon @Luke_R a big stinky one at that
Also good game I thought. Looked like we were getting hemmed in a lot still. Guess when you have a flawed team this happens. Noticed that the effort level was dialed in specifically in certain situations on the ice where players earlier in the year and last couple games seemed to lack it. Good effort.
@DeclanK kicking us out? haha. Shall re post there.
@Cameron19 @Luke_R Serious, how many teams are willing to trade a goalie now? I'd say not too many. Maybe not fit for us either, unless they blow us away out of desperation. I think I would settle for Reimer for Petry and a 2nd, but would try hard to see a Reimer + FOR Eberle deal.
@Cameron19 @Luke_R Who's the GM again? Oh yeah.
So looks like Edmonton still has goalie issues..... who wouldve known..... lol. Said this all along they got two number 2's and hoped one could emerge. Maybe they take Reimer, we get Petry and a pick

Man, Lieweke gets a pat on the back for establishing the front office. Shanahan appears to be PERFECT for Toronto. Maybe better than Burke.
@Jmessih @Luke_R I really feel alot of the players arent under pressure though. Maybe some of the leaders and with leaders. But others that i wont name seem to think its a joke. And that is part of the issue. Has to change or move the out. How many chances. This doesnt even deal with the poor composition o this team (big money in one way players, no two way centre etc...)
Maybe this bs and pressure they are given unites the boys a bit. Makes em grow up and realize this isnt junior (looking at some players specifficaly who i still think dont prepare and mentally engage like they should).
I hear Shanny's quotes and I think Gardiner the whole time. Does he be patient and hope he can mature, learn from his mistakes or move him

@Whalz Guess the problem is do we want to sign Frannyb to a huge deal, and have another faulty core player (ie. one way, not well rounded)

@MaxwellHowe @Luke_R fuck saluting the fans. Unless its a great comeback win, or better yet, playoffs, the only salute i want is the one at the end of the year with the big shiny trophy
@Cloud09 @Luke_R you could see him in the videos, and his questions were not related and he took a shot at the media when interviewing bozie
Also should note, Henny was a beauty in the scrums. Shoutout to him
@Whalz He truly is money on PP and producing offense 5v5, but his skating in a league thats getting faster, and his brain farts (mind you less than Gards) just kills me. He has been doing quite well on top pair, but can he keep it up? Play 2nd pair? Can we afford to pay him much to be a bottom pair guy? Tough questions.
I'd look to trade Gardiner for a Coots or ROR or something in a package preferably.
@Anthony Petrielli should include 6-1 thrashing of Boston days earlier to show full circle :)
Wonder if a Franny for Dillen trade was discussed at all... maybe they had no interest, maybe we could decide who gets a pick back. No way it wasnt because the Leafs werent interested in Dillen. He is a shutdown gem. Chemistry with Robidas, and would be another good shutdown guy with Polak
4 days, 20 hours ago on Game Review: Game #20, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Lightning 2
Wow. Watched all the scrums... Lupuls and JVR's were the most aggressive. These media members are real pricks. They complain about the teams play (as they should) in days past, they finally do win and complain about unimportant things. Fuck the fans who are upset by this. Maybe the players are upset that 90% of the losers in the ACC dont cheer on big plays like EVERY other teams in the NHL. Just a joke story being made out of nothing.
