@DeclanK @leafmealone Is this Jeopardy? Then the question is: What is the last thing a redneck ever says?

@Xxxxxnew (folds up piece of paper with Shanny's writing on it and stuffs it back into his pocket...walks away)
@kxbarillas "With the #1 selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, the Toronto Maple Leafs go off the board to select..."
@leafmealone -98 speaks for itself though....
I have to take issue with a few people on here. People who said that Kessel should have kept his mouth shut or apologized to the fans for how brutal the team is. Kessel doesn't owe you or anyone else a single solitary thing. Who do you think you are to deserve a single solitary thing? This is a game people...a game. Did he hurt you? Did he hurt your family? Did he steal from you? No to all. If you don't like it...shut it off. Go do something else. Seriously, no one owes you jack squat. Get over it. Entitlement amongst fans appears to be much worse than amongst the players.

@Axle_Goalie EMT's just removed a rack of ribs from his duodenum....
@Alec Brownscombe Love Burkie....
@NinetyThree @newkb I just believe that had he still had his best chips now....the returns would be better.
@DJBrianBurke @newkb No, it isn't terrible when you look at it in a vacuum. But now in comparison to other deals.....
@NinetyThree @newkb He jumped the gun by setting the market IMO. Now others will benefit.
@normb @newkb Me too. Just a feeling......
Leafs will be left on the outside looking in with regards to all of these oversized returns for middling players.
@sadleaf I like the sound of that.....oh wait....

That quote from Jake should get bodies in planes.....
@dlb The Leafs couldn't find their Chara and Lucic....we had to survive with McLaren and Orr....
@Yak That's what was happening over the course of the season....opposing coaches used this ability to manipulate Carlyle to their advantage. The Leafs were for the most part reactionary in their play - rarely dictating the play or imposing their will on the opposition. And I believe the end result(s) were the consequence of the style of play they were told to play.
@dlb Define "we". :)
I agree about what that would say about the core. Having said that, I agree with Cam that Carlyle was more concerned about matchups than anything else. Instead of running 4 lines with an aggressive "hard on the puck approach", he was trying to get his matchups. When you have a matchup team, there are different messages to different players....and I think that is a losing style nowadays.
@peterbleafs And most of last year too....
It's one thing to play this brand of hockey....it is quite another to translate that into W/L...odd thing to say I realize. But by any other measure BESIDES possession, this team is doing worse than before in GF, GA, and results (yes, very small sample size).
Need to see the style of play translate into the other numbers before I believe. And even then, will this crew stick to the rewritten script, or go back to ad-libbing?
6-2 is ugly no matter how you slice it.....
@MaxwellHowe If corsi is all that mattered, yes.
