@Burtonboy Definitely was a mistake. Would have been nice to reward a guy like that.
3 hours, 31 minutes ago on Tuesday Mashup: 3 Days Off
@Burtonboy I could see him meaning that in the sense that people read into those stats too much at times. We don't really see the context.

@Pent_House @Reether @Ze_theLeafsFan BOOO I'm never gonna get to see her now
1 day, 8 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Leafs Make Cuts, Booth Out 4 Weeks
@Ze_theLeafsFan Ya I like Andi, did SN not pick her up?
@Loric76 Lets not be talking about anyone's form now David ...
2 days, 4 hours ago on GDT: Preseason Game #6, Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
@Jordan29 My browser always crashes on my HTC one, I haven't tried in a while though.
@ingy56 @Reether @wiski @ErikP803 Ya I guess it all depends on if there is a market for Reimer or not right now.
4 days, 11 hours ago on Friday Mashup: And then there were 39
@wiski @ErikP803 @ingy56 Oh, well then I take back my get it done. Unless of course Reimer is getting moved.
@ErikP803 @ingy56 I agree, do it up
@wiski I don't like it
/edit I liked having all the headlines available at first glance.
5 days, 6 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Cameron19 @DeclanK That would be a terrible trade
5 days, 8 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Cameron19 @Reether @Yaknowwhat @Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK Are you advocating trading for futures still or a player like J. Staal like you were pushing for in the summer? Futures, then yes there is a chance that we could plummet that far, but if we are replacing those players with upgrades in certain positions, then no.
@Cameron19 @Reether @Yaknowwhat @Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK Getting a top draft pick involves trading parts of that core. Or getting very lucky.
5 days, 9 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #4, Senators 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat @Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK In all fairness you always argued that the team was better than people said, that the core was good enough to build off of. Since the tail end of last season you've changed to it not being good enough. I think it's the Carlyle hate, it's gotten to you
@Yaknowwhat @Cameron19 @Dangle_My_Berries @DeclanK He flipped over to the dark side after last season. Kind of sad really.
I don't think with Bernier in net and Kessel healthy we will bottom out as far as we did last year again. It would take quite a few injuries to drop as far as those who want to tank want. Remember last year we lost our top 3 centers at one point. Also Bernier was injured for the last part of the season.
/edit Also I hate the idea of tanking
@Yan28 I want to see more of Biggs, I think he looked pretty decent so far. So I'm happy they kept him up
@Cameron19 I don't see anything wrong with having Bodie on the team. He played well last year. Also doesn't hurt to have someone on the ice that can drop the gloves against some of the slightly bigger guys.
1 week, 1 day ago on Monday Mashup: Horachek working on the neutral zone, preseason starts tonight
@DeclanK @Reether @Yan28 Ya Ashton was a big shit disturber last preseason. He was hitting everything, broke McLaren's hand with a slash, and was just playing well. Not sure if getting his nose pummeled in the first game (or first few) affected him last year. But I agree, it looks like he may be on the outside looking in, they got him on the 4th line tonight with Kontiola and Biggs. Hopefully Kontiola gets some better looks later in camp.
@Yan28 @Reether They got him with Kadri and Leivo tonight, so they are certainly putting him in a good position to succeed.
@Yan28 @Reether Booth being cut would be a surprise. I think he will stick.
@Cameron19 @Reether If he has a good camp someone could find a use for him. I wouldn't just assume he is done.
Who is going to be the surprise cut this year in camp? Seems like most people are thinking Ashton may be cut. I don't think Frattin will be since he was traded for this off-season.
Also a good chance we see a trade or two, maybe a Franson or a Holland/Ashton/Orr gets moved?
@DeclanK @Reether @gottabe_KD It really is a steal. I can watch the Marlies, Knights and Leafs. Not to mention all the special events/tournaments like you mentioned.
@Yan28 1st and 4th line are interesting. Hopefully Ashton comes to play again this pre-season like he did last.
@gottabe_KD I use hockeystreams.com but that's also my primary source
@DeclanK Gives me something to listen to wooo
Biggs has to be held back by 2 sens
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
@Doorman @Reether @Loric76 Am I looking at the wrong page? Is it because I drafted those guys the year before?
@Doorman @Loric76 Hey Doorman, how does the picks we lose work for the Keeper league.
I'm looking at this page. http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/1468/lastseason
If I keep Crosby, Hall, Keith, Backstrom and Bishop do I lose my 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 10th?
Just got in, hope I didn't miss much!
@DeclanK @Reether @T K O ya Jmessih guessed that down below as well. That would explain the strong wording he uses towards someone in his own organization. It does seem like strange timing to be a Leaf related comment. It does seem like Defoe fucked them over after all the marketing and money they spent on his acquisition.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@Jmessih @Reether @mr_hanie @Luke_R It could be he is pissed about how that situation has blown up in his face. Maybe it is a jab at him. I wouldn't know.
/edit It does seem pretty BS that Defoe is trying to leave this early after all the fanfare with his arrival.
@T K O Ya, IF he was talking about the Leafs and not TFC. Then we did not get rid of any high caliber players (this off-season) which he would be alluding to in that statement. Which means we have held on to players of "terrible character" after what was another "collapse". Strange to say the least.
@mr_hanie @Luke_R I have no knowledge of Toronto FC, and I'm assuming he isn't talking about the Raptors cause they usually say nothing but great things about the stars of that young team.
Is there anyone on TFC who are "players we have in our organization today whose numbers are off-the-chart good"? I honestly don't know so I'm asking.
@Luke_R @Reether This is something he should have said after the season was over and not right before training camp.
@Luke_R Sounds like he is covering his tracks now. Too late .. you said it
For anyone that uses hockeystreams or needs an online source for their hockey this year, hockeystreams has an early bird price of 100 for 1 year. I just jumped on it myself, luckily noticed it today because the promo ends tomorrow.
@wendelsway1 I agree, I think we will do better than people predict.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@peterbleafs @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 In all fairness without those posts, I doubt there would have been any other than an endless pile of Fenton/Cameron arguments.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Sunday Mashup: ‘Legends Row’ a great gesture, ‘Fan Fest’ goes septic
@Anthony Petrielli @Reether @Cameron19 Ya an idea like that could work.
And as to the second part, I really can't understand what would be so bad in the comment sections that would make someone say they would never check it again, but hey some people! what you gonna do
@JMAC17 @Reether @Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 Some threads are not labelled as mashup but are also not opinion articles so they are fair game to talk on. Sometimes the last mashup thread is more than a few days old and is buried in the back somewhere. On mobile it is sometimes hard to find a mashup thread.
These are all things that can be improved on over time. I just think before going all out trying to implement these policies maybe making it a bit more clear and effective would be a good idea.
@Anthony Petrielli @Cameron19 I am ok with wanting to clean up the comments section, but it has often been confusing how this worked. For someone on a mobile viewing the website, having to scroll through 3 pages to find the last mash up can be annoying. Sometimes an article isn't listen as a mash up but is free to talk on. A little more clarification goes a long way. (Latest Mashup post on the front page somewhere, rules etc.)
Also I believe a lot of those "new people" who get intimidated by the large amount of posts wouldn't have become regulars any way. I honestly believe that that is an excuse in some ways with the thought that it would generate a lot more feedback. A lot of people lurk because they can not be bothered to comment or don't have the time.
This isn't too say I don't agree with giving the articles that you guys put a lot of work into their own comment sections. I just believe there has to be a better way of "herding" us lol
@wiski @Alec Brownscombe @Marlies Man This happens with things that get popular quickly, especially forums. It is a lot to handle for those running the site and they get edgy. People get frustrated at changes brought around and miscommunication leads to mistakes occurring on both sides.
@Alec Brownscombe @Bobsyouruncle @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I disagree but I can say the new posting policies have frustrated a number of people. Poking fun at them isn't that big of a deal, as I've raised my concerns about them before too. I'm not sure what else was said but that is my opinion on that matter.
@Gilbey39 welcome back, and shes a nice one
@wiski Ouch that one hurt
@Cameron19 @Reether @TheGhostofPhook Ya Devane is 2 years older though so maybe they would want to let Broll develop a bit more and toss Devane to the wolves first.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Thursday Mashup: Getting closer
@TheGhostofPhook @Reether I wonder which one of Broll/Devane is higher on the depth chart
@TheGhostofPhook You still thinking the Brolldozer makes the team?
