@B_Leaf I hate watching this team. I hate the way they play, I hate the lack of fight.

@NotSince67 Hmmmm. Every 4th line that Carlyle has had has been garbage.

@penchantforbeingmuppets He's an absolute tool and I have to believe that he's not going to last the season.


He just cannot -or does not even attempt to- develop his players.

@Doorman I thought his contract was a little bit rich before the season. I was wrong.

@Cloud09 What? You don't like the 4th line and its 3 minute contribution?

I imagine that building a credible fourth line was part of Carlyle's mandate this season. I wonder how pissed off Shanahan is watching his coach completely ignore that need.

@TheCanucksnaphook Because it's a great sport. But shit like that dive, the stupid ref buying it, the stupid commentators on CBC who don't mention anything about the performance, do make me wonder....

@LeafsGuru How many 5-6 D do you need though? This solves nothing for the Leafs.


Also, the Leafs hand out picks like candy. I wonder what Poulin thinks of Nonis.

@loomx @wyatt956 @Xxxxxnew  Maybe you are right. But production quality means nothing to me next to Glenn Healy and his continual and meaningless noise. And Simpson is not much better.

@wiski @MikeGartner11  The abuse that guy receives on the ice from opposing players is ridiculous. Slashing crosschecking, roughing,- you name it he gets and the refs only call a fraction of it.

@wiski @DJBrianBurke  Why is it that CBC's main team is so bad? 


Craig Simpson says nothing interesting or nothing that illuminates the game for me. Healy is a nut -stupid and even hysterical. It bothers me that he gets paid money to do what he does.

@Jmessih  Both deserve blame. But you can fire a coach- you can't fire a team. Not sure why he is sticking around. Seems like an odd solution to me.

@Cameron19 @darthNihilus @Bruffins  Friedman says that Carlyle will lose a lot of power, particularly in choosing the roster. Bolland won't be re-signed if that is the case.

@~Keon  And the West was the opposite- top four teams advance including the Marlies.

@Sexyhairyman  Kessel is going to be 27 and Phaneuf is nearing 30. So the question is do you keep those guys (and Lupul) when it is clear that this core is not going to win a Cup? 


There would seem to be two paths: you add to it (Stasny, ROR) or do you blow it up. I'm frankly for selling Kessel etc. (although I like him) and trying to rebuild with the younger guys. 


I think the Leafs will take some hybrid model -a bit of adding, a bit of development that won't produce anything of note. Just my guess.

@hometeem @CanuckUKinToronto  I didn't care about the Philly-Ranger game because neither will win the Cup. The East has one good team- if they make it they have a chance. None of the others do (Pitt maybe an outside chance).

@~Keon  If you can't beat a team when you have them down 3 games to 0, then you don't deserve to advance.  Whatever the talent level.

How did SJ acquire such depth? I remember just 2 years ago the concerns that they were an aging team whose time had passed (much like Vancouver)

@Jmessih  You really do notice the difference when you listen to Hrudy immediately after listening to Craig Simpson/ Glenn Healy. 


Healy is just stupid. He is like the stupid loudmouth fan sitting behind you at the game who never shuts up.

@Rick_Vaives_slapshot  Yes, I love watching teams with shitty support and little local interest in the sport like Tampa or Carolina win the Cup. It reminds me what a truly special place Bettman's NHL has become.

@wendelsfist @Rick_Vaives_slapshot @Wilbur  After the west coast trip, the Leafs had a 90% chance of making the playoffs accoring to sports club stats. 90%.


It takes a truly special kind of awfulness to beat those odds.

@CanuckUKinToronto  They need to get to and in front of the net. Finns are conceding the perimeter and protecting the middle. And vice versa- keep them out of Price's face. If they do that, they should win. It looked the forward lines were starting to roll just before that goal.
