@sniperstar @Chris Jay @Lescott I think most just think he won't want to stick around.
@CanuckUKinToronto Lol...the only one happy, in this household, is the dog.....he loves snow.....unfortunately he loves it more when he drags me out there to play in it....run was "fun" this morning....he was prancing around like a deer....lol :)
Morning Gang....I'd say good...but the freakin' white shit is back....lol Maybe the lottery will cheer us up :)
@NotTheCanucksnaphook @wendelsway1 @Mcost61 Great PR if he took a hometown discount to stay.....I know, I know.....grasping at straws here...lol :)

@NotTheCanucksnaphook @Mcost61 I really didn't think Bolland wanted to be back....colour me surprised with his comments today....sounds like he wants to stick around....

@Greg Fenton @wendelsway1 No worries...let's move forward, shall we :)
@Greg Fenton @wendelsway1 Seeing as you continue to refer to past posts....I also said we could just let bygones be bygones and I'll play nice...if you will...........yet you feel the need to tell me to ignore rather then get upset about it.....I'm not upset, Greg......I'm stating my opinion.....and yes I know how it works around here, with regards to multiple posts, opinions, posters, etc.....I'm not a dummy...no need to be condescending....and I'm still not upset, Greg.....if I was, you'd know it :)
@Greg Fenton @wendelsway1 Probably right.....and most agree yet keep talking about trading him....which is fine...but very repetitive. Love for someone to come up with something that is actually in the realm of possibility as I really don't think Kessel will be moved, and feel they are still looking to slowly add in increments...is the phrase I believe Shanahan used. My impression is some fans think we're farther in the rebuild than Nonis thinks we are.....a work in progress that is not finished yet.
WE ARE NOT TRADING PHIL KESSEL....carry on Boys :)
@Black_Hawk Doesn't mean anything....as long as he's on the payroll, they won't throw him under a bus

@rustynail Maybe that was the problem....no guarantees, with all the parity in the league, desperate hockey was needed and you don't get desperate if you think you're a shoo in.

@Mind Bomb @wendelsway1 Morning MB....a little late to the party today....ridding my yard of Habbies before the rain comes in

Nice chatting, All.....gotta go fire up the Kamado and get my Fatties and Jalapeno smokies smokin'.....Later :)

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @mike_84 We're not!
@ShiftyD @wendelsway1 Can we just kidnap him instead?....I'll bring the ropes and duct tape ;) lol
@ShiftyD @wendelsway1 LOL....was supposed to be a play on Annie get your gun......I guess I'm showing my age again....lol :)
@ShiftyD Shanny get your gun!....lol :)
@ShiftyD @rustynail That we don't have the players to play Carlyle's system and a more adaptable coach is needed.
@vinoa @NotTheCanucksnaphook @DJBrianBurke @Burtonboy LOL...do the less literate fans even know what a palindrome is.....lol :)
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan There were enough nutbars going after Reim's wife.....gotta think he knows...lol ;)
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @wendelsway1 @Burtonboy @Cloud09 The best kind
@Burtonboy Come on Shanny....make him an offer he can't refuse :)
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @wendelsway1 @Burtonboy @Cloud09 Great for storing really stinky weed ;) Ordered a really neat weatherproof heater for the deck, as well.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Burtonboy @wendelsway1 @Cloud09 Just ordered a really cool looking party/social raft....sits six people with bevvie holders.....the water resistant vape case is gonna come in handy...lol :)
@Cloud09 @mlclearwater ...and cookies....don't forget the cookies...lol :)

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Cloud09 You and me both....It's the cottage life for me. :)
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @wendelsway1 @loomx @vinoa Kind of obvious that I haven't started vaping today.....reality is for people that can't handle drugs...lol #vapeon :)
@loomx @wendelsway1 @vinoa I still think Stastny will stay in Col.....time will tell, I guess.
@vinoa @loomx This is what some seem to forget.....when he can be replaced with someone who is better.....and actually available. I hope that players will be available but the kind of players that people are talking about are usually retained by their respective teams. This isn't fantasy hockey....although it is fun to dream. :)
@Cameron19 @Burtonboy @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Neither do I.....but stranger things have/do happen around the NHL.
@Cameron19 @wendelsway1 They've got a pretty good thing going on in Colorado....really think he'll be resigned.
@Cameron19 What's the plan when Stastny resigns?

@Uncle Otis Have a good one, Uncle O.....nice chatting :)
@Habskilla This place never goes dormant.....always updates on all things Leafs.....and always fans on here to talk about anything and everything....playoffs, bbq recipes, music, vehicles, fishing, cottaging....you name it, we talk about it.....in passing the time between Leafs news. :)
@Uncle Otis @wendelsway1 Very possible....Reims and Scrivens were very good friends both on and off the ice......Gotta think that the change and being relegated to back up, had to mess with him a little, as far as fitting in with the group.
@Uncle Otis @felixjvd Wish we could but really think Reims will ask to be traded....if he hasn't already.
@Tim Disappointed....yes, Ashamed.....never :)
@maple1967leafs @wendelsway1 @Belfour20/JB-45 Let's use Kessel as an example.....people loved him going into the Olympic break, he was untouchable and fans of other teams were marveling at his skill during the Olympics. Whole team collapses, he's the only one to take responsibility and hold himself accountable and he's the one that needs to be moved?....not on my watch...still a part of the solution in my mind. :)
5 days, 11 hours ago on And that’s a wrap
@WendelGilmour @vinoa Which brings me back to...Carlyle needs to go and in his place a coach that can adapt and recognize the strengths and weaknesses of our players.....they all have 'em...no player is perfect.
@Belfour20/JB-45 I think TO is, if not the hardest, certainly one of the hardest markets to play in. Unfortunately you don't know who is up to the task until they're actually playing in the market. Every signing and trade comes with risk and more risk, when having to play in a fishbowl, where the pressure's always on.....best place to play, when winning......and the worst when you're not.
@WendelGilmour @leafersutherland @wendelsfist And yet, Kessel was the first one to take responsibility for the losses and said he had to be better. Some may not like his style of play....but he's not the problem. IMO
@mike_84 @wendelsway1 @mr_hanie Sure...why not?.....certainly more plausible than several of our players with NTC being traded for JT.....and I read that one several times a day here....lol :)
@mike_84 @mr_hanie If Spott gets moved, it'll be to assist DeBoer with the Leafs.....although I think he will remain with Marlies and has done a great job with them. :)
@peterbleafs LOL....Yep, Kamado weather is here. Everything on the bbq is bacon wrapped today....The boys need some cheering up.....and who doesn't love bacon?...lol :)
@Leafs2 Isles1 @Great Dane @wendelsway1 @Keeon @Belfour20/JB-45
Everybody did not think Franson was great ;)
5 days, 12 hours ago on And that’s a wrap
@Belfour20/JB-45 It's not a matter of letting players off the hook.....I understand the need to vent, but we're not shipping out the whole team. We do have some good pieces, even if fans are too disappointed to realize it now.
@Keeon @Great Dane @Belfour20/JB-45 As disastrous as the ending of the season was, I just don't see them blowing it up......we are too far along in the rebuild and it's not finished yet. Players will be changed but I really don't think it will be as drastic as some of you think or it will involve moving our better players.....time will tell.
@Keeon Is this the real Keon?...I'm thinking yes......how much grief were you and I given when we maintained that Franson is not and will not ever be a top 4 Dman, when just about every one else wanted him resigned to some crazy amount because he had potential?....People finally seeing what we saw a year ago....about time :)
