@Jmessih Ashton is a nice depth player would be nice to see what he can do with ice time but he has to earn it like Holland has done. Damn, I love Holland.

Sigh...on The Fan... "Kessel doesn average things on the ice..."
This is why we can't have nice things.

@wiski @mcloki Ot...on Game Centre...which is fucking great

@traNsplantEdneWfie The Leafs are always ranked lower because if anyone in the media defends they're labeled as a "Leaf fan" and then they're tainted. The Leafs could be 82-0 and you'd still have people say they aren't any good.

@mr_hanie They run with 2 back ups...

@peterbleafs Probably have to get a Hudsons Brew House in Toronto first. lol.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Wildcard
@Cameron19 @MikeGartner11 @BPsotka @dlb Mad Bozak is a very good 2nd liner centre. Nothing wrong that and his cap hit is very good. I'm not too concerned especially with Kadri's improvement. A #1 would be swell but with none out there that we'd WANT I am okay to wait until the right opportunity.
@wendelsfist I'm going to my first Oilers game on Sunday...Stub Hub ahs tickets for $20 so gonna go and "cheer" them on. Honestly, it is really sad to be a in city with a team this bad. Leaf fans freak out after 2 bad losses...the city is just apathetic now. It is sad.
@drummond I live and it is just sad. It has gotten to the point where nobody even cares. You can get seats for $20 off stubhub...
@Cameron19 @T K O @djamon Playing Nikita Nitkinin when he is injured as well is also brutal but that is your GMs BIG get in the off season so you have no choice...
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Leafs Notebook – December 2
@Cameron19 @Zep2 They're gettin' eaten alive here in the media, social media etc. You can get tickets in the upper bowl on Stub Hub for $15...last night they were $7.50 a ticket...
@Wilbur @Anthony Petrielli @MaxwellHowe @Yaknowwhat I'd like Coutrier but I don't think his offense ever develops. Seems to me like a Chris Gratton type...
@Yaknowwhat I love Gardiner but if you can get Franson at a decent number slot then you do it and try to move another defenceman...likely Gardiner to which I think you have the basis for the C that you want.
@ninepaces @steele123 Not as a #1 no. But yes. Do you really envision 90% of the guys on a Cup team or do you stop after the first 10 guys who are big names?
@ninepaces He is competent in his own zone. I'm okay with it. He isn't a shutdown guy by any means but you do need puck movers to get the puck out of your zone.
@Xxxxxnew Fair enough.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: Game Day in Pittsburgh
@BoneChompski @Xxxxxnew If Leo's dad showed up it would be too much awesome...or he is a secret agent.
@BoneChompski @Jmessih @Hammertownleaffan @Xxxxxnew I'm a transplanted Albertan from Ontario...does that count for both?
Rumour is Anisimov from Columbus for Perron in Edmonton...from Aaron Ward.
@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy Honestly that will help a bit. The coaching on their goalie as been terrible. That said that a running with 2 back ups.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Monday Mashup: Who gets the call?
@Bruffins @Luke_R Love the side eye that Henny shoots the guy at the end of the video. Classic.
4 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #20, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Lightning 2
@Forever17 I think you could build a deal for ROR with Lupul as the main piece considering ROR is playing wing and that is what they need more than anything else. Lupul and a defenceman?
@DeclanK @Burtonboy @Cameron19 When I did OHL games when I brought up a few non biased comments I actually had the PR people from the team come up to me...it didn't stop me from saying things but it just goes to show you how people try to influence what is heard/seen etc.
@DeclanK @Cameron19 I love how Dion just wanted to rip his head off.
@wiski @Burtonboy He isn't married to any one specific player.
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Roman Polak: “We play as a bunch of individuals”
@mlclearwater I see another loss...but a 4-2 game...
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Sky yet to fall, Leafs vs. Lightning tonight
@GeorgeCastanza @Bruffins Leo is overpaid but he brings it 97% of the time and I can respect that. Worth every penny he is paid...but overpaid...
Question to you folks. What happens if the Leafs lose tonight?
@Cameron19 @steele123 Honestly, my buddy HATEs Reimer..and I tried to have an actual conversation with him once about it...and it was the dumbest thing I've ever done. The hate is strong...My personal feeling is...blow it up...keep Gards, Reilly, Kessel and JVR from the current cast and everyone can go. Get stop gaps on 1-3 year contracts that eat enough space and get picks....
The reality I fear is that Babcock is coming this summer and thus no rebuild is going to happen and we're going to "go for it" with 75-90% of the current core.
Can I sit here today ad say which plan is better? No and honestly none of us can. We sit here second guessing every move that is done/not done...but that's the point of being a fan.

@Cameron19 Cam I understand the frustration you have with posters re: Dion and such. trust me I have a friend on Facebook that is beyond crazy when it comes to being an insane Leaf fan. Every game is just random ranting about Reimer, Phaneuf, Kessel etc. The thing is that we're all allowed to have our opinions regardless on how terrible, awful, good or mediocre they are and endlessly debating some of the folks on here when you know that they won't agree. You're a smart hockey fella and have well thought out points but a lot of people o here don't want debate they want heads on spikes.
@Xxxxxnew But you don't keep coaches and GMs just for the sake of consistency. If the results aren't there it is hard to fathom keeping people who routinely fail.
@DeclanK Even on Carlyle? :-)
@Burtonboy I enjoy how he perceives it as a slight to the great old timers...but he should realize fans are doing this for the things that are happening now.
@Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat I think we're just a .500 team...and we go on streaks. We're a 7-11 team in the Eastern Conference. I'd prefer to trade some of the core and rally shake it up but really not sure what needs to be done to fix this entire organization so that it becomes a model of consistency and a Cup win.
@Burtonboy @Yaknowwhat He probably gets to the new year and then a reevaluation. I'm starting to lean towards him finishing the year out.
@Burtonboy A bit random...
@Mcost61 @steele123 @ConnorCrisp In Edmonton we have a very mild day and melting snow...mwahahaha.
1 month ago on Tuesday Mashup: Preds in town tonight
@ConnorCrisp The sky is blue.
@Cameron19 @steele123 BTW welcome back Cam!
@Cameron19 He has a Doug Gilmore mentality and some of his talent. I think ROR would be a great fit here and would definitely take some critics off Kessel just because he'd want the mic all the time.
@Dogger Agreed. Just saying that it we could just as easily say these are the Leafs that we see now are the real ones just as we can say that ones that played mediocre during the first bit of the season.
1 month ago on Should the Maple Leafs consider claiming David Schlemko?
Imagine if the Leafs continue on the roll they're on now for the rest of the season? What if this is the team they actually are? How awkward and Raportsesque would this be?
@Leafs_17 Unless you're taking a bad contract back...or you're giving up nothing for him...you don't do it.
1 month, 1 week ago on Tuesday Mashup: Bruins Wednesday
@Jmessih Pfft I live in Edmonton so it actually gives me time to get home and take the dogs out before the game goes! Woot! Also, Game Center Live is a fucking godsend.
@Anthony Petrielli @Burtonboy He needs to come back..not Stastny but Cam.
@Burtonboy @steele123 Just a case of what have you done for me lately?
1 month, 1 week ago on Game Review: Game #15, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Senators 3
@Burtonboy Its amazing how quickly some guys fall off eh?
A helluva weekend of hockey and while not always pretty always great to beat Ottawa.
