@hometeem @Dogger Sutter and Hitchcock both express how soft the Leafs are to play against, opponents are quoted as how easy they are to play against, seasoned vets from other teams say it after only a few games, yet somehow people refuse to believe these guys just don't work very hard. 


Bouwmeester throws JVR down like a rag doll and laughs at him, no reaction. Our goalie gets run over in Florida, no reaction. Constant fly bys, no back pressure, don't fight along the boards let alone win them.

@Dogger Obviously there's more to it than that, but it's a bigger issue than most will admit, and it's obvious.

@Bruffins @WendelGilmour I thought the Hometown Hockey idea was supposed to focus on communities and I get the Habs shoved down my throat.

@Knights2Leafs @WendelGilmour I know what you're saying, I just don't see anyone but Bozak's line standing at the other teams line. There are occasions where it can work, but it's up to the players to make a good read, it's not an automatic.

@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour @Knights2Leafs @Burtonboy @docmma Grabs? Who cares what he thinks. Leo didn't seem to think so, he wanted to come back.

@Knights2Leafs @WendelGilmour The only line I see flying the zone is Bozak's, I don't see Kadri's line doing it. If anything Kadri gets criticized for carrying the puck over the line.

@Knights2Leafs @Burtonboy @Cameron19 @docmma So RC criticizes players constantly for not moving their feet, but tells them to stand still? That's ridiculous.Why is it only one line that does it? It is not the system.

@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour Head coaches maybe, but Cronin, Gordon, Acton, Zettler, Farrish, and others I can't remember are casualties of this group. Enough is enough.

@Cameron19 I've seen this crew do this to enough coaches already. I'd jettison some of these guys before firing RC, and I'm not a fan of his.

@ingy56 @WendelGilmour @DeclanK Yeah, time to stop the carousel. Conventional wisdom is that the coach pays because you can't change all the players, but in this case I would certainly try.

@Yaknowwhat Ingy mentioned it last night, and it's true. Players who come here, get promoted, etc. seem to give in to this culture. We can only hope it hasn't infected the kids.

I have issues with RC for sure, but frankly I'd chuck some of the players overboard before I'd fire him. This group will not be any better with a new coach. I am absolutely convinced. Some of these clowns are coach killers. I don't need to be in the room to see there's big problems in there.

The combination of poor talent and nonexistent compete is devastating.

@loomx @WendelGilmour @Kenny Powers In some cases, although I can't think of one. At the end of the day it's the culture of the team. I wonder what the Winnik's and Polak's would have to say off the record.

@Alec Brownscombe @WendelGilmour @Jmessih Understood, but at this point I'd rather hear simply we're embarrassed and we will be better. Then actually do it. Empty words at this point.

@T K O @WendelGilmour My eyes tell me he's fine. With regards to missed assignments, no more than anyone else. I'd like him to have more points too, but they will come.

@T K O @WendelGilmour Kadri is our best possession forward, and despite our 3rd line being so good, Kadri's line has better numbers. The points will come, but in all other aspects Kadri has been more than fine.
