@Greg Fenton @jimmyg65 @Walter_White @Xxxxxnew Seriously, why don't you run an NHL team? You're always right, you always know better than the management about trades and players and draft picks. Everyone else on here is just a sheep led by the nose by the suits at MLSE. It must be great to be you.
2 days, 3 hours ago on Maple Leafs hire Brandon Pridham as new assistant GM
@Greg Fenton @Walter_White @Xxxxxnew Thanks for telling us all what we thought Fenton. Plenty of us were and are critical of some of Burke's moves while giving him credit for others.
Burke accomplished nothing? Go back to your cave for God's sake.
@Greg Fenton @ingy56 Trust Fenton to find the dark lining in every Leafs cloud. Do you EVER have anything good to say about this team? Seriously, why are you a fan of a team you hate so much?
3 days, 4 hours ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@phaneufoundlander @jimmyg65 My wife works for the same media company, so she brings me home the year book and the draft issue. I'd never pay for the damn thing...
3 days, 20 hours ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Writers....
@TheCanucksnaphook @jimmyg65 I'm thinking the truth is somewhere in the middle...
3 days, 21 hours ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@peterbleafs The Hockey New ranked PK Subban the 14th best player in the league, even though he wasn't good enough to crack the starting six D-men for the Canadian Olympic team six months ago. Kessel is ranked about 15 spots behind Marian Hossa. The magazine is a joke. They never say anything positive about the Leafs because it sells magazines.
ESPN has Nylander ranked 4th amongst all prospects, BTW.
@TheCanucksnaphook @jimmyg65 It's pretty great here. Not too crowded, you can snorkel right off the beach, people are very nice, not too much crime. The currency is American, the banks are Canadian, and they drive on the left side of the road!
I'd love to see Tennessee and that part of the South. Just watched Deliverance for the 15th time. Beautiful country, except for the rapist mountain men...
1 week ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wake me up when it’s hockey season
@TheCanucksnaphook @jimmyg65 I'm not out in the sun all day like you so I've managed to avoid serious sunburn. You don't see a lot of people walking around between noon and four.
I'm leaving Saturday. Going to miss it. My wife's got family here so we come down couple times a year. Free place to stay makes all the difference.
You're in Tennessee?
@TheCanucksnaphook @jimmyg65 They say it gets hotter in September. I find that hard to believe.
@TheCanucksnaphook I've been in the Turks and Caicos for over three weeks. It's about 110 every day with the humidity. REading about the Leafs keeps me sane and cool...
@LeafsGuru I don't think I could ever go back. I love working at my own pace and schedule, and having no boss but my own bank account. It can get lonely (I talk to our cat way too much), but I love it. Good luck with the new project.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Catching up
@Cameron19 @jimmyg65 @Cloud09 @LeafsGuru I've worked for myself now for eight years after working in offices for a decade. I get more done now in five hours then I would in nine working in an office.
@LeafsGuru Good to hear. My daughter's old school had the worst air quality. Nothing I could put my finger on--it just smelt wrong.
@dlb Mad @jimmyg65 I agree that many of the unions have betrayed their original purpose. Corrruption seems to set into every human institution, no matter how well intentioned it is.
@Cloud09 @LeafsGuru Having said all that, civil servants in Toronto are ridiculously overcompensated for the most part (definitely not talking about teachers, who don't make enough for what they do).
@Cloud09 @LeafsGuru and the 40-hour work week, which has virtually disappeared as union influence has waned, and paid vacations and ability for the working- and lower-middle-classes to send their kids to university (also in decline for the same reason), the right of workers to speak out against harassment and intimidation. People forget what life was like before the rise of unions--or they're too lazy to read a history book, so instead buy all the BS shovelled to us by the "economic" experts on TV. The rich do not care about anything but themselves--if you don't know that, you are blind.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Dangle_My_Berries Emphasis on "borderline"....
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Jake Gardiner Signs for 5 years, $20.25 million
@Jordan29 I work at home so don't have to hide my screen from my boss. I do have to limit time so I don't go broke....
@LeafsGuru @jimmyg65 I'm not saying it's a good thing or not, but I do think it's going to happen. The Toews and Kane contracts have shown elite players how much money they can make if they sign with a big-market team, so it's probably only a matter of time before the Leafs lure a player like Stamkos with a crazy contract.
4 weeks ago on In conversation with Dave Morrison – Part 3
@LeafsGuru @jimmyg65 the rest of the media are either trolls who trash talk the Leafs (while sucking up to the "dynasty" Habs) or put out Stamkos-style rumours for click bait. I can barely listen to the FAN or TSN anymore, and I only read articles that have recommended here on MLHS.
I do have a weird feeling that Stamkos will come to TO one day, though.
Great stuff, Anthony, better than anything else in the media these days.
@Reether Honestly, I don't know why some of the people on here follow the Leafs. It doesn't seem to bring them any joy. Vote for another team if you hate them that much....
1 month, 1 week ago on Prospect Camp Pressers: Brendan Shanahan, Jim Hughes
@LeafsGuru Leivo could also be in that fight.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Bargain Shopping: Remaining UFA Forwards
@Cameron19 @jimmyg65 @Bobsyouruncle Maybe so, but I still don't get why people shit on skilled players. They seem to become easy scapegoats when things are going badly, whereas the Tuckers and Domis (players who I also liked in their day) are heroes for life. I can't tell you how many times I used to get into arguments with other Leafs fans over the value of Sundin to this team.
I agree with you about Gardiner's intelligence. He's never going to be as good as Reilly or maybe even Finn because of that, but I think he's a genuine talent who we can't afford to trade. And yeah, to Bob: $4.75 million is crazy for him at this point in his career.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@Bobsyouruncle Voted to the All Rookie Team in his first full season in NHL. Played over 22 minutes a night in his third year on a terrible defensive team and still ended up only –3. Every team that's called up the Leafs to make a trade wants to include him in a package. But yeah, Gardiner sucks and can't play D. You should get a job with Sportsnet or TSN and shit on the Leafs players no matter what they do (unless they drop the gloves and do other "intagible" things). Never seen a fanbase that hates skill like Leafs fans. Never understood it, never will....
@Welder24 Leafs weren't, and shouldn't have been, in on any of those guys except for Gorges (meh) and Stasny, who wanted to play in St Louis because that's where he's from
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Leo’s Back: Maple Leafs sign Komarov to 4-year, $11.8 million contract
@TuckerForPunishment I think we'll see a deal for Franson today. That will cap off what has been a pretty good day....
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs sign Stephane Robidas to 3-year, $9-million deal
@Reversethecurse13 @Jordan29 Kadri: second year C with 50 points. Trade the bum
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Free Agency Day: Maple Leafs Targets
@Loric76 Wow, Spector pissing on the Leafs: stop the presses!
@ShiftyD The weather gods didn't like the return for Spezza?
Trading D'Amigo makes me think they're closing in on a deal with an established 4th liner with PK abilities. Or maybe I'm just drinking the Kool Aid....
@Loric76 And the fans of Toronto tell you to go F#$% yourself....
@ProfessorRance @Loric76 Gillis 2.0
@lukethenuke The day's first piece of good news...
@leafmealone Tells you everything we need to know about him. HAS HE BEEN TO BUFFALO????
@Loric76 @Walter_White NOt funny
@Loric76 If he doesn't, I'll trick myself into believing that the roster choice is intentional and that we're tanking for McDavid. I'm easily fooled...
@Cameron19 Where's the "Groan of Agony" button?
@reenergized @traNsplantEdneWfie @B_Leaf Leafs own his NHL rights until noon.
@Loric76 That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, even from Kypreos. Are these guys that desperate for website and Twitter hits?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Maple Leafs’ Tim Gleason to be bought out
Just finished a job and will heading to Guelph soon to watch draft on my brother's 58" TV. Intend to be hammered by dinner time. Great start to long weekend--I hope....
1 month, 3 weeks ago on (Draft Day Mashup) The Day Has Arrived
@Cloud09 @Burtonboy I actually had a dream two nights ago that Grandberg was playing for the Leafs and was nailing opposing players into the boards. Prophecy? Or am I just so pathetic that I dream about the Leafs #6 D man?
@Cameron19 seems good
@Zep2 Work. Gotta finish something by 10 am...
With Reilly, Gardiner and guys like Finn and Nilson coming up I don't know why the Leafs would be gunning so much for Ekblad. Why not go for the #3 pick from Edmonton and pick Bennet or Reinhart? Maybe that's what they're planning.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes
@Tim Horton You can never drive anywhere in TO these days! Skydome should be no worse than any other game. Best to leave the car and take the subway if you can.
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot Except here your family doesn't go broke and lose everything they own because a family member gets cancer or into a car crash. Biggest cause of personal bankruptcy in America is personal illness or injury because they don't have universal health care. That's why their taxes are so low--very few services or protections, therefore tons of poverty, crime, shootings, etc. Great place to be rich, not so much for the other 99%. I'll take Canada any day, thanks.
