1 week, 3 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Bruins Wednesday
No we are not. Why are we trying to move big contracts if all weve done is sign themup - none of them are much older than 2 years in.
yeah in LA, here hes a top 2 center OR one of 3 scoring lines (Boston way)
No no not for me either. I mean we have Bozak and on the wing as Richards can play the wing we have Winnik or Kozun. Stanley Cup here we come.
P.S this is sarcasm, anyone on here that has been watching the same team that I have the past f-number of years cant tell me that Richards isnt an upgrade on atleast 4 of our top 6 guys. Sure hes on LAs 3rd line but thats because they are winners and we are losers.
We have a goalie? Im glad theres someone back there to pick the puck out the net, those refs arent getting any younger and its a pain to bend down and to pick up a puck with gloves for the defense (real job title: traffic cones) is a bit of hassle.

wiggle wiggle lol
He was sharing with Brodeur and well you know it lol.
You cant not tar Bernier or Reimer with the same brush then arent they sharing and playing less than that amount of games??
last year wasnt a shortened season
@MaxwellHowe @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Burtonboy
There was a burger chain in England called Wimpy and everyone who worked there, often young, were called Wimps and they felt really threatened and hurt. So I couldnt possibly use such a derogatory term, I'll stick with cigarettes.
Not a bad response but you forgot his 921 and 1.97 in 43 games with the devils last year
Reporting in from the year 2053.
Dont ask if the Leafs have won a cup yet - dont do it to yourselves.
because if I use any other term the PC brigade will march me off to the tower for execution.
His stats prior to this year dont agree with that. Second best goalie in the league whos played over 100 matches. OR maybe stats dont count - lol.
I dont think he planned to hurt his hand, i think he planned to hurt face. If we dont want him getting injured maybe he should lay off the hockey to avoid him from straining a muscle, blocking a shot and breaking a bone etc etc.
Hes a man and acting like it, defending himself and his team mates, unlike the nancies who mouth off that he shouldnt fight its wrong and oh so barbaric. Bob McKenzie. get a piece of paper pal and a pen. And write on it why am i such a fag and then tuck it down in your Burberry hand bag. Remind you of who you are on those dark scary nights.
A Krejci Chara Boychuck less Boston we have as good a chance of any weve had the past 4 years to put these bastards away, but Im a Leafs fan and a realist. They have their backs against the wall and the only way out is to fight, they are good at that, we arent.
@Savo43 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Burtonboy
Oh! I guess we'll see at the end of the year but Im not as convinced as you are of our prowess. Ottawa are in full rebuild and manage their results after losing Spezza and Alfredson, how good would we be if we lost Kessel and Lupul. Edmonton is a team of 1st rounders with zero guidance, funny enough th eroute everyone on here wants to take by trading Kessel and Phanny to fund a shafting of our dignity and throw year of NHL hockey. NJ have a better goalie and comparable forwards despite losing Clarkson Kovi and Parise all for free. Florida isnt even hockey and Buffalo have been royally screwed by its owners and gm -lol.
Whats our excuse come the end of the year after a 5+ year rebuild
Sorry what team is worse than us in that run?
@Mind Bomb @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Mapleswede
To be fair Im with either goalie. I think this game has to be everyone firing on all cylinders because in all 4 lines, the defence with a set system and solid goal tending any win or loss wont be solely down to our goal tender anyways baring a 40 shot v 40 shot match where 1 of the goalies walks away with a shutout. If we start slow and concede within 2 minutes then we can just as well switch off our sets and go to bed.
Thats were stats die.
Reimer has played more against Boston, Berniers first matches were to get used to a the set up in Toronto and to get used to the opposition. The sample size is too small.
@Mind Bomb @Mapleswede
rebound reimer, the hero of the best of seven two years ago. I think not. Boston arent a skill first team they are brains, theyve worked out Reimer, Id go Bernier.
what an insult. It must suck knowing your getting sent down to save peanuts but peanuts is more then you can give.
1 week, 5 days ago on Game Review: Game #15, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Senators 3
Hockey night without Don Cherry would be like an american car chase NOT involving 150 squad cars. Sure fire him. Hockey nights 5 minute segment will be filled with a charismaless Bieber type and Cherry goes to another network, gets 10 minutes and freedom to do as he wants. My take on the hockey is Cherry is worth more than most the game. I disagree with a lot he says like the Ontarioless Leafs and his utter hatred of Russians or his general McCarthyism or the way he shat on Burke - but entertaining nonetheless.
Just looking through the scores from tonight and TVR has scored just like his brah
1 week, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #15, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Ottawa Senators (6 p.m, SNO)
god that was shit by Karlsson
@JR from Halifax
If I was a Sens fan Id wonder when the hell did the Romans come to Ottawa and mmm how did they like the weather.
The dogs bolox right there
cant we maintain anything for more than 1 f-ing minute
That makes up for it JVR go get em
Nope because the team has lost its confidence because of last seasons fall. It brought back what happened before the shortened season and killed moral. This team is better with Leo in it, if you dont see it youre a fool.
I think it was a huge part of it a good 8 - 10 points yeah. PPkill was non existant, absolutely no bite. Yep Im convinced of it
wiziwig is usually reliable with a shit ton of different feeds so if one is like watching your dad banging your mum through a wad full of toilet paper blocking your view from the key hole you can always take a trip along the landing and watch your sister frigg off to New Kids on teh Block - hang on thats not right - did I type that out loud - hic
It wouldnt be a proper night of comenting from me if I didnt say my usual NONIS OUT
This is the guy that threw away a season because he didnt want to pay Komarov what he wanted, only to come back a year later, get what he wanted anyway.
Is he worth the money or maybe too much for a third liner ha ha ha ha
jvr hat trick anyone wow
The usual Leaf sickness. Its easier for the opposition to enter our zone when they have the puck that it is for us to clear it when we have the puck. That usually is a recipe for disaster.
fuck me with a shitty stick - really. Give them the same shooting lane time and time again to see if they can be 3rd or even 4th time lucky in 3 minutes. A joke an f-ing joke
Maybe they arent prospects. Maybe the Leafs organization is just so far up its own arse that they want youngsters in where you usually shove veteran plugs (arse - veteran plugs - lol) because they dont want the vets going hang on, this isnt how you run a club, this isnt hockey, fuck we suck. Instead you get some other teams reject once drafted in the 1st round and it keeps a demanding fan base quiet as they tightly clench their fingers together hoping hes the new Ovechkin if only he got more than 6 minutes.
1 week, 6 days ago on Game Review: Game #14, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Rangers 4
If my glass is half mt (what too lazy to add 3 more letters lol) then I realise I have just enough fuel to get me the bar to fill it up again. 1/2 full-ites sit there supping their beer doing there best not to look like a tight fisted student. I know which one I am - drunk and pulling students - lol.
Did we just win the cup?
Oh thats right we are only as good as our last game - we won against an original 6 = best team in the world.
"smash - the sounds of bones snapping": coming back down to earth.
watching the Florida game at the moment. Is there a sale down at the tackle shop or something, its empty in there. Are we paying for them too.
2 weeks ago on Saturday Mashup: Rangers Tonight
Is it just me or dont they ever do Leafs gear. I was looking for a decent Leafs hoodie one time after seeing them advertised and NHL shop didnt have any and now no Leafs onesie.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Winnik “100%”, Gardiner injured
When you see a dying duck at the side of a pond, you look at it and go aaaah! poor thing, I wish it would get well and the like. Youre a visitor.
Then theres the park warden whos job it is to clean up the dying duck. He sighs, he doesnt want the juice on his skin and its pathetic last look at the world is just a glazed expression from a robot put there to burden his day.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Game Review: Game #13, Avalanche 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Mind Bomb @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @T K O
With you there but we havent got the man power to win on a consistant basis and wont have until Nonis is axed. Hes a lame duck GM and has done nothing other than got us Bernier which is like getting crome trim for a toyota camry.
Im not worried about any game and trying to win any at the moment. Im more concerned with getting players in so the players we have dont give up completely and mutiny.
@ingy56 @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @T K O
Sorry mate I thought you said stars (golden geese). With the exception of JVR who came from Phillie to play in Toronto (yes that is a backward step) the others are just ordinary players. Sure drop them it would make next to no difference. JVR shits the bed at times but he has that thing niggling in his head that his brother is playing for possible cup champs and hes languishing in a basement team. That has to f - up any player.
@Mind Bomb @T K O
so you sacrifice a win against Phoenix to hope to get a win against a fast paced Colorado side. Doesnt that seem backward to you. Lets be honest, we are lucky at best to beat anybody and will be pretty much down to teh fact they are either tired from a back to back, massively injured, have a terrible night or just the run of teh dice.
The Toronto Maple Leafs with everyone fit IS NOT a team that can dictate anything in this league
@ingy56 @T K O
ingy - if we lost a game and Carlyle had benched Kessel what would be the news about town other than Carlyle was fired. What other stars could you be talking about and therein lies the problem.
@T K O
He will like all sportsmen take it to heart and it will boost his performances for a few games before he forgets and it carries on as before. Thats what happens when the team has no confidence and the stars (lol) think they are wasting their careers in a crap house.
By not building a team and just cruising along in first gear we are slowly destroying our young prospects as they have no one to look up to, no one to fight for and watching there NHL dream be wasted in an AHL team thats in the NHL by default.
Come on man its not the coaches fault. You are correct that the coach doesnt fit the playing staff but we have a playing staff we shouldnt have. They are for the most part mediocre at best. This isnt the case we have a coach which is failing with Yakupov, Eberle, Hall, RNH, Schultz et al this is a coach that is failing with two young d-men with next to no vet guidance (10 games of Polak and Robidas wont change things in an instant). Kadri who is ok but thats it. Ashton, Holland, Frattin are nowhere near stanley cup winning calibre and never will be. Lupul is always injured. The lines keep getting changed. We have no big No1C.
we have youngsters we could trade before we show the league they arent all that. We have draft picks, we also get a call at free agency, we can also offer sheet. But all we do is get another Holland, Ashton, Frattin, Santorelli etc etc etc.
The coach in my eyes has done nothing wrong, hes trying to polish turds into diamonds with a brillo pad.
