Doorman, are you around?
5 hours, 41 minutes ago on GDT: Pre-season Game#1 – Toronto Maple Leafs vs Philadelphia Flyers (7pm, LeafsTV)
@WesternDP @WendelGilmour Thanks, I'll check it out.
18 hours, 23 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
AB / Dec / AP, any update on the site changes that might allow us Z10 users to post on mobile?
18 hours, 31 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
@Knights2Leafs @WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe I guess I underestimated MLSE, I would have thought $40 - $50 top price. I should know better.
18 hours, 34 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
@Burtonboy Morning, Bboy.
18 hours, 37 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
@Knights2Leafs @WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe $95, seriously? Wow. Still, as you say, nice to see some of the new faces.
@Lummis83 @WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe Yep, looking forward to it regardless.
18 hours, 40 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
@MaxwellHowe Yeah, and only because the league has rules about dressing vets, etc. Fair to the folks paying to watch I guess.
18 hours, 45 minutes ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
That roster for tonight is way too many players. I guess we'll find out later who's actually playing. Being in London, if neither Rupert is playing you can bet it's already been decided they're among the first cuts.

2 days, 15 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
@CanuckUKinToronto This team simply has to find a way to generate way more O zone time.
2 days, 16 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
@Loric76 Hmmm, this is different.
@Ydargo Yep, but I'll believe it when I see it.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @mike_84 Yeah, I read that.
@Knights2Leafs Hopefully some of the boys will force Nonis to make some tough decisions, and hopefully he makes the right ones.
@Ydargo I tend to agree with doing that.
@mike_84 @WendelGilmour I don't believe he said so, but I would like that.
@Knights2Leafs @WendelGilmour Yeah, RC spoke to the fact Naz will see more PK time.
@mike_84 RC has said Booth and Santorelli will quite likely play together, at least to start with.
@Hmmm @WendelGilmour Yeah, I agree. Naz has actually spent some time on the PK, just a little surprised that was mentioned over PP time. I have no problem with it.
@mike_84 @WendelGilmour I agree. Nonis has mentioned him as 4C, but I believe 3C may be where he ends up, if he plays to his capabilities.
2 days, 17 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
Interesting to me that RC mentioned Naz may get PK duty this year, yet no mention of increased PP time. Not what I would have expected. I would like to see Naz and Gards or Reilly added to PP1.
@mike_84 I believe Holland will make the roster as long as he has a decent camp. I would bet he's penciled in as of right now.
Morning boys and girls.

1 week, 1 day ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@ingy56 There's a link on yesterday's gdt to some info about him and the other invites.
I've only see one period so far, but I haven't seen anything that really disappoints me, with a couple of pleasant surprises thrown in. Looks to me like Leivo is a step above the competition and will make a lot of noise at Leaf camp. I thought Willie looked fine considering he had no game action on a NA rink for a few years. I read Finn made a couple of mistakes, but I also noticed he was the one communicating and directing traffic when the Hawks were rushing the puck into the Leafs zone. I though Freddy looked good, and this Findlay kid stood out to me. Looking forward to tonight's game. Oh yeah, Sparks looked very sharp.
1 week, 1 day ago on Rookie Tournament Game #1: Maple Leafs vs. Blackhawks
@Mattmark @WendelGilmour @Burtonboy @Optimustic That's essentially where I'm going with this.
1 week, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Optimustic I understand the waiver issue, but I would never let that dictate who earned a spot. My choices would be performance only. It makes no sense to me to keep an inferior player over a better one under any circumstance.
@Burtonboy @Optimustic @WendelGilmour I don't disagree with the fact they have to knock someone off, I don't trust RC to acknowledge when they do. I agree on Holland and Ashton, but if a Leivo outplays Santa and Kontiola and earns a spot I don't think they'll let him stick.
@Knights2Leafs That's exactly what I mean.
I was fairly happy with many of the signings this summer, but with all these new invites it's starting to look like when we had LACK around blocking kids from promotion (based on their veteran status, not performance). With his job on the line there's no way any of the kids have any chance of earning a spot with RC.
Shanahan's meeting with the youngsters telling them there were spots available is starting to look like an empty promise.
@MaxwellHowe @WendelGilmour Agreed, and we're better able to back fill than last year. Lots of options.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Expansion Talk
@MaxwellHowe @CanuckUKinToronto I think we already know Clarkson isn't a fit with Naz.
@MaxwellHowe I like that, but think Winnik will fit in somewhere in the bottom 6.
Ok, boys. How do you post a video on YouTube? Can I post a vid on here direct from my laptop?
4 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: 28 Days to Preseason
@DeclanK @WendelGilmour @Burtonboy @Cameron19 Great news. Thank you.
1 month ago on Friday Mashup: Leiweke not long for Toronto
@DeclanK @Burtonboy @Cameron19 @WendelGilmour While you're on, Dec. Any progress with livefyre on being able to post from my BB Z10? It's been read and like only for weeks.
@DeclanK @WendelGilmour Agreed. I wish he were more aggressive.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour I think so too. If I recall correctly any standouts get invited to stay for the main camp. Could be wrong though.
Do rookies report before main camp?
@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour @Burtonboy That's exactly the way I see it. Next to impossible for them to succeed under those circumstances.
@Burtonboy @Cameron19 @WendelGilmour That's the thing. Many harp on Kadri and say he had his chance last year with Kessel, but I don't pin that all on Naz. Kessel and Kadri worked very well in that Boston series and created a lot of havoc. Boston had a lot of trouble handling them.
@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour I agree, Cam. Injuries had much to do with it. maybe what I'm really wondering is seeing how effective it was, why he didn't do it at all last year.
Every once in awhile I get to wondering what happened to the RC that coached the Boston series. He mixed-up lines, changed on the fly. You never knew who was coming over the boards, and it kept Boston off balance. He was doing smart things. Last year anyone could predict who would be on the ice at any given time, and he never varied. Frustrating.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Loric76 Me too. I'm hoping beyond hope Spott and Horachek can influence RC.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Loric76 I'm hoping for the same experimenting Bboy. Lots of options to assess, and I also am afraid RC will try to force things which aren't working. He needs to be open minded and try some new things.
