Anyone able to dig up a stream for the Marlies game this morning, all my regular sites don't have it.

Bravo, nice fucking calls ref. Not only was the hook on Gunnar AFTER the play was dead, then the Phaneuf call for competing. Asshats.

Regardless of my earlier rant. The difference in the way the team plays with Bernier in net compared to Reimer is startling. On twitter APetrielli had a great point about the puck control of Bernier over Reimer and how it maybe allows the team to play calmer in front of him.

Great to get a point......
But seriously, how the fuck does Buff not get a tripping penalty 15 secs before he scores on the 2 hand trip on JVR??????
You fucking call Rielly for way less, then let that go on a rush to the net????
BULL FUCKING SHIT!!
@Burtonboy Everyone is excited after last nights game because of the level of compete they showed. End of the day it was still a loss, and if they shit the bed against Jersey on Sunday, Boston will cruise in on Tuesday and destroy us. I've really lost all hope at this point, just don't see it anymore, far too many warts and not enough beauty. I was all in until that Carolina game and then the veil fell away, and now I don't believe. I think that Carlyle should go and that management should bring in a younger generation coach that will get more out of our young roster, but Nonis isn't going to do that. I think it comes down to a young roster, that's lacking veteran presence to steer the ship when sinking, and Bolland was that voice. His return will be too late.

@Yaknowwhat But that's 42 games remaining you have for them, it would have to be 18-12-6. Still don't see that happening
Just looking at numbers, 36 games left, Leafs probably need 90 points for a playoff spot. That means they need to go 22-14 to finish off the season. No matter how hard I try to believe it, there is not a fricking chance in the world that is going to happen with this group. FUCK!!
@newkb @ingy56 @Burtonboy Fuck Mirtle, stopped following him after the Ranger game. His smugness and dislike of the Leafs makes me just not give a fuck what he has to say anymore.

Reimer really needed to make that save there. I know its a 3 on 1, but that was not a shot that should beat the goalie from that range. That is what bothers me the most about Reimer, he makes amazing saves, swimming in his net the whole time, battles and looks awesome, then lets in the real stinkers when you need more amazing. That is game over, if there was any chance of coming back, that goal killed it.
@daniel marois Yeah, I think he is the only option, other then going really out of the box and getting Crawford or Cherry.
@Loric76 That's just fucking lovely asset management.
Has a coach ever quit on his team and walked off the bench into retirement?
Shots already 12-3 Carolina
LOL HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Seriously??
@The_Polish_Cannon Is there truly a player on this team that is not expendable at this point? Complete and total lack of effort, heart, emotion and compete. It's a fucking joke.

Reading on the Canes boards, seems like the general consensus is that they are extremely happy to be rid of Gleason. Sounds like another pylon. Hoping that a change of scenery will bring his game back from what it was a few years ago. May be the new TO fans whipping boy, I hope not. If his game is up to par from 2 season ago, he is a mean, physical, stay at home guy that we sorely need. At best its a huge win, at worst, we're right back where we were with Liles, so basically a wash.

I'll probably get flamed for this but I've had it with Kadri and other parts of this team. I think he's been a terrible fit with Kessel/JVR, not keen on his "no panic" comments, and he's bloody selfish at times. It's really at the point where I don't want to build the team "around" him, we already have a few other princesses to pamper. And the fact that he wanted 5m+ after a half of a decent season puts red marks all over him. If I could play GM for a day, I would try and move 3 major assets to "change" the chemistry of this team. Kadri would be shipped for a shutdown D-man, a top 2 type player with leadership/determination/heart to play with Dion. Players I would target would be Scuderi, Girardi or Bieksa. Then I would flip Gardiner for a #1 center in the same age range, some like Ryan Strome or Charlie Coyle, or even Brayden Schenn. Yes Gardiner is incredible, but he continues to show immaturity, has at least 2 brain cramps a game and I'm not sure if he will ever get that desired hockey "IQ". His value is immense right now and this is the time to get the most for, he would bring in a massive #1C prospect. Lastly, I would ship Reimer out for a backup and prospect, or another asset that would bring more leadership to this group. Reimer and his reaction on the bench to being pulled on Saturday was very interesting. It shows that he has heart and desire, something this team tends to be lacking. Even though he's a battler, there is still something about his game that makes me nervous every single time he's in net. Bernier is the goal of the future, Leafs management decided that in the summer, but I also believe Leafs management felt the same way about Reimer's game, the way he battles, almost fighting with the puck. Some nights it works, other nights...... hence why the went and got Bernier.
I think a lot of comments on here have hit home today, this is a young, immature, coddled group of pansy's. Yes they are talented, yes they can be fantastic on some nights, but other nights they lack all of those elements you want in your team. Watching the 24/7, it's almost like we've slid into a Muskoka 5 group again, this time revolving around players that haven't matured enough to be in that situation. The mix in the room isn't balanced, and we can continue to "grow", with some accepted bad nights, a just enough is enough attitude or you can juggle the cards and change the mixture. Thoughts?

@dlb eh @LargusMeans ok, here goes
with Bozak, 7-9
without Bozak 10-10
Not nearly as much of a factor on our win-loss record. Bolland brings intangibles, leadership and a winning attitude, I really think it speaks volumes of his importance.
