@CanuckUKinToronto Kessel: six consecutive years with 30 or more goals (pro-rating last year's shortened season) for a 26-year-old player sounds pretty consistent to me.

@PepTalk No one as far as I know has mentioned what the pieces were, but the stumbling block was that the Leafs wanted the Islanders to retain some of Vanek's salary.
@Gilbey93 I live near the Yonge and York Mills/Lawrence location. Always packed. Always delicious. I try not to go too often because I don't want to put on 50 pounds....

@Waiting4LSC Couldn't agree more. We must be the only team in the NHL that doesn't have a fourth line. We lead in shots-against and are on the way to setting a record for the biggest goals for/against differential in NHL history. And Carlyle keeps trying the same tired strategies over and over again when they're clearly not working. I was at Monday night's game and it was clear that CLB was a less-talented but better-coached team. Same goes for the Scabs.

@Tim Horton So Holland and Ashton ARE playing tonight? Me confused.
@Jmessih @jimmyg65 I was at the Leafs blueline for two periods so got to see him in his own zone. He still makes the odd mistake, but he is so solid with his puck-handling decisions and hard to knock off the puck. And jeez, can he skate. He did not look like a 19 year old out there.

@Jmessih I was at the game last night, with a really good view of the game, and what I saw confirmed what I've been saying since last March: Carlyle is not a great coach. I don't think he's a bad coach, but his personnel decisions are incomprehensible and out of date with the way the game is being played this year. How he continues to not use a fourth line is a complete mystery, and he obviously has no idea how to get any offence out of former 30-goal scorers Kulemin and Clarkson (I'm not suggesting those guys should be getting 30 or even 20 goals every year, but he has to get more out of them).
The Leafs also seem to play one style of hockey whether they are winning by three or winning by one, or whether they're losing or tied. Columbus was so obviously a better-coached (and less-talented) team--they played with focus, with an obvious game plan in mind, with individual players seeming to understand their roles.
Reilly is a keeper, though....
@lukethenuke I wonder how much of his reputation is earned and how much of it is based him going up against the old boys network in the NHL. I'd love to see him in TO.

@4evrblue @jimmyg65 I think he's taking me because I'm the only guy in the office who is as crazy a Leafs fan as he is. At least i hope that's it....

@Marlies Man @jimmyg65 I'll be wearing my Kessel jersey and cemented to my chair for three periods. Maybe I'll buy some adult diapers so i never have to get up.... I'm pretty sure the waiters come around for your beer order.
My boss is taking me to the game tonight: tenth row golds, near the blue line. I'm looking forward to getting a good look at Reilly in action close up.
@mcloki @TheCanucksnaphook @Marlies Man He has broken the lay: he bought crack and smoked it in a crack house. He used city letterhead to petition for donations to his private charity. The police have been to his house three times on domestic abuse calls. He's been photographed driving his car while reading a report. His right hand man is being charged with extortion for trying to get the "non existent," according to Ford, crack video. I guess I'm one of those people who "don't like the mayor" and who doesn't like his home city turned into an international laughing stock by an idiot rich kid whose money and family connections protect him from the law. But hey, that's just me.

PS: almost the whole team looked like crap tonight, so I'm not blaming it all on Gardiner
1 week, 3 days ago on Game Review: Game #61, Islanders 5 vs. Leafs 4 (OT)
Gardiner's play tonight was one of the worst performances by a D-man I've seen in a long time. I've been a supporter of his but it's getting harder to justify him being on this team when Reilly is clearly so much better at playing the role of puck-carrying D-man. Trade him while his value is still high...
@Pent_House @Dangle_My_Berries @Loric76 He was being bashed for leaving practice first yesterday in the MSM. They're insinuating he's lazy, though he just got back from Russian where he played for two weeks while the other guys were sitting on the beach. Ridiculous shit....
