Sorry, guys. I can't say anything more than has already been said. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones, and the people of Ottawa. Never ending respect for our military, police, and first responders who keep us safe and care for us in these times.
Shame on those who chose to take cheap shots at our PM on a day like today.

Bad, Randy will give PP1 the whole 2 mins
2 days, 7 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
@whalz @WendelGilmour @loomx The PK example is probably not a good example, obvious to me his line is not playing the system the way it is designed. I didn't believe he would flat out tell Spott "I won't do it" at the time, but I do now.
4 days, 4 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@loomx @WendelGilmour Nope, but combining what he said with the way he still plays does.
@whalz @loomx Nothing wrong wit adding another skilled winger, but something horribly wrong with adding one who has come out and said he doesn't get paid to play defence. That's the last thing we need. We have too many of these guys already.
@MaxwellHowe @WendelGilmour LOL.
@whalz Shoot me now.
@loomx @WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe @Jay_Berg Yep, no disagreement on the asset management part.
@loomx @WendelGilmour @MaxwellHowe @Jay_Berg Like I said, the asset management part is a legitimate complaint. Painting Colborne as a great talent we lost is ridiculous, and big means nothing if you don't use it.
@MaxwellHowe @WendelGilmour @Jay_Berg He was awful, imo, just my opinion. It wasn't me who would have handed him a job, but the msm widely reported he was pencilled in to start the year.
@MaxwellHowe @Jay_Berg It wasn't just the lousy camp. Fact is, in 2-3 years with the Marlies he had ONE good month. He was 3c on that team, and if you saw them live it was obvious as to why. We have a legitimate complaint about asset management, but not because he had done anything to warrant better than he got. His release was based on body of work.
It also speaks volumes about a guy when it is well known he would pretty much be handed a job then completely spit the bit.
@djamon @Yan28 Our 5th rounder in June
4 days, 5 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@Jmessih Yuk. That's almost enough to make me not like Naz as much.
@djamon @WendelGilmour Yeah, I don't necessarily disagree.
4 days, 6 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@djamon @WendelGilmour Oh, yeah. There's definitely a couple, but I would think they would be the same guys better teams may be more able to pay more for.
@djamon @WendelGilmour That is true, all I'm saying is there's competition. Still they have very little that would interest me.
Sure seems like word is out Edmonton wants to deal, but there were 21 other team execs there aside from Nonis. We wouldn't be making any steals, and it's quite likely a better team actually has the pieces to make an offer we couldn't match. I don't hold much hope for any deal with Edmonton, very little I would ask from them anyway.
@Burtonboy @WendelGilmour @Mitch92 True, but I think we have talent to start scoring if we can continue to improve in having the puck. Throw Kessel, Kadri, JVR, Lups over the boards after some of the guys hem in the other team and they're tired. Other teams do it to us all the time.
4 days, 15 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
@T K O @Mitch92 @WendelGilmour Yep, More time in the O zone will start to pay off. Scoring talent on this team is not an issue, imo.
@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour @Mcost61 I don't disagree, Cam. In theory it seems possible it would have that effect.
@Mitch92 @WendelGilmour Well if you have the puck, they don't. The scoring will come.
@Mcost61 @Cameron19 Kassian looked pretty good last night. I agree on his temper, but he was pretty effective forechecking. He's also an ornery so and so.
@Mitch92 Kadri's line had a bad game Friday, but on the whole have been driving possession. Their scoring hasn't really come yet, but they spend a good deal of time in the O zone.
@Burtonboy Listed on the roster as LW, but I thought he's played both.
4 days, 17 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
Spott and Kessel were yelling at each other on the bench? I missed that.
@TorontoMapleLeafs @WendelGilmour @deedrag Yeah, Robidas was solid last night. Our D could certainly be better, but IMO they don't get much help from the forwards either. They all need to get on the same page.
@TorontoMapleLeafs @deedrag Robidas. Apparently he has a minor injury also.
@Cameron19 @WendelGilmour @T K O For sure.
Morning everyone. Better effort than Friday, but obviously many of the same issues.
@T K O IMO, Detroit gets away with more than any other team. They are also sneaky dirty, cheapshots and stickwork.
@Savo43 @WendelGilmour Or points.
5 days, 4 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
@Savo43 @WendelGilmour LOL. Hopefully we'll soon find out who's right.
@Savo43 People here would likely be shocked at how little Kessel would get us. NHL GMs aren't stupid.
@B_Leaf @WendelGilmour LOL.
@B_Leaf "Top LIne" my ass.
@Jordan29 @WendelGilmour Yep, this core just doesn't have it.
@Jordan29 Should have done it this summer.
@TheLoovTrain @WendelGilmour @Zep2 Our biggest issue, imo.
@Zep2 Kadri's line just happens to be our best (maybe 2nd after tonight) possession line. Get off his back, we have far bigger problems.
@B_Leaf Nothing to do with Franson. No back pressure at all.
Clarkson working his ass off. Good for him.
5 days, 5 hours ago on Game Day: Game #6, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7 p.m., CBC)
Gards is completely lost right now.
@AlbertaMapleLeaf The only two that ever get held accountable.
Last straw. Fire RC now.
@mcloki JS has done a good job tonight. I like him.
@Jmessih Same reasons Burke did.
@TheLoovTrain Try something.
I'd give the Wings a steady diet of Kadr's and Santa's line the rest of this game.
