Most Passionate Leafs fan in MINNESOTA!!
Jake wanted to stay in Wisconsin because he preferred college, and the development there suited his style. His best friend Justin Schultz also played there. His brother played for the University of Minnesota, Max. College was where he wanted to be. His dad influenced his boys a lot.
Anaheim plays hardball with their draft picks. Gardiner and Schultz are examples. Schultz played long enough at Wisconsin to in essence become a free agent by not going to Anaheim early. Schultz then chose Edmonton. Garth snow likes to do this to his draft picks as well, and almost lost Okposo in the process. Weird deal!
4 days, 13 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
I am from Minnesota, I know Jake and his family. He has never been a player with an "attitude". Confidence? For sure! He really wanted to make the Leafs coming out of college, and he did.
As far as his verbiage to Carlyle, it was a young kid speaking to a old hockey guy, coach or not Gardy took a stand. He was by far our better defenseman the last 15 games of the season, and his skills showed.
Jake wants to stay in TO, he is in the top 4 at a young age. Carlyle has been a professional longer. Carlyle should have spoke his mind to Gardy, and only Gardy. Carlyle speaking out about Jake is more egg on Carlyle then, Gardy!
Good Luck Jake, go get what you having coming, my Minnesota bro!
Go Leafs Go!!!
How can we complain, we got a right handed D-man that comes from a solid team. We have to expect moves after our non playoff track record.
Welcome Mr.Polak and may you have many games of smashing Hab Smûrfs to the ice.
Go Leafs Go!

1 month ago on (Thursday Mashup) Maple Leafs considering Tony Granato as potential assistant coach, Dave Nonis meets with media ahead of draft
The thing that gets me fired up is:
Bolland wants more $$$, he played 27 games, no guarantee he comes to camp healthy and we gave up 3 draft picks for him!!
This kinda stuff drives a Leafs fan sleepless!!!
So very unsure on our Management in this organization!
Keep DION, Work in ROR and Boyle some how...We will be fine!!

Like how "piece of $hit" Matt Cooke gives a statement on his play on Barrie, saying he is a "changed player based on his stats". The NHL has cleared him as a repeat offender, due to time and the CBA. Of course he doesn't lose any pay. Oh and he will not be taking questions either.
He gets saint status I guess. Cooke should be out as long as Barrie is out. That goes for Seabrooke too.

Carlyle should be fired for talking about a comment between himself and a player. Should have stayed in the coach's office. If Carlyle had control of his team, this never gets brought up in front of the media.
Good for Jake to compare himself to someone who is greater than himself. Not cocky, confident! Wanting to play his complete game/skills his hardly a reason to blame a young kid for his attempt to bring more to his team, trying to make a run at the playoffs. Statistically speaking, Jake played pretty good the last two weeks, which is more than you can say about other vets and "leaders".
Go Leafs Go

One of my biggest issues with Burke, is he made many transactions. Sometimes you just gotta stand put, and let your team gel.
Glad Nonis didn't do something, just to do something. If everyone elevates their game, we can beat anybody

Classic Leaf Roller Coaster ride….this time we get fed TOAST!!!
Carlyle said in his post game presser that gardiner "wasn't moving the puck well"……so he inserts Fraser because he "practiced well with the group"!
Wow..I would rather have Gardiner over Fraser any day of the week. He has speed to make up for his mistakes….Fraser forget it!!!!
Our next coach better be Barry McConnel!

It wasn't till I told my shrink I was Leafs fan, that I started getting the GOOD meds.
Carlyle can't seriously think Fraser is worthy of playing on this team!
