@traNsplantEdneWfie I like Yandle. I'd like him even more if Dion is moved back to the right and Franson was shipped out.Gardiner-PhaneufYandle-RobidasRielly-Polak
1 day, 13 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Leafs face banged-up Blue Jackets tomorrow
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @loomx For sure, but it's pretty weak. A good chunk of them will boo until the end but won't cheer until the end.

@Darkside Beleafer @loomx @Jmessih could only see the platinums, but booing and jersey throws also happen from there.
@Jmessih Meanwhile in Toronto, the ACC was emptying out with about 5 minutes to go in a decisive victory. Losing=boo and throw jerseys. winning=leave.
@In it to Winnik Yup. Had them in the playoffs. Having a healthy Rinne is going to make a massive difference and they only missed the playoffs by 3 points.

@TheColborneUltimatum @Jordan29 Apparently because of sexual harassment but that's unconfirmed.

Time for some blending.Winnik-Kadri-KesselJVR-Bozak-HollandLupul-Santo-ClarksonPanik-Carrick-Komarov
top three lines play equivalent minutes.
@Burtonboy @loomx Especially since I heard that Nonis thinks very highly of him.
@Burtonboy But there was nobody available better than Carlyle!!
@Yaknowwhat The narrative last season was "Carlyle won a cup, he's not the problem" or "he's not on the ice, he's not the problem".
@T K O Not really confusing. Both are to blame. Too much of the same type of player at forward and a coach who isn't able to coach a young team. #postsfromlastseason
@wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat Yeah, we prefer hemmorrhaging draft picks over here. "who cares? It's just a 2nd/3rd/4th/5th round pick!! by the way why can't we draft late round studs like Nyquist?"

@MLHS_Luke Shanny started his tenure with a half-measure. Not a promising start.
@wendelsfist @loomx @Yaknowwhat And hasn't even tried to fix the most pressing issue with the team, the top line.
@Jordan29 @loomx Let's see, 23 year old guy who competes and is good on the PK or 26 year old guy who's playing his way out of the league? Not a difficult choice.
@Jordan29 Don't forget trading 23 year old D'Amigo for a guy who looked like he was finished as an NHLer.
@wendelsfist @loomx @Yaknowwhat And Carlyle is paid to change things up when things aren't working. Hasn't done that. But I guess we can search for any baseless reason to blame the players here too.
@Yaknowwhat right, I'm the one with the narrative here. I'm saying the Leafs should change their lines up, the coaches job, and the first thing you say is "PLAYER'S FAULT". haha. don't act so unbiased.
@wendelsfist @loomx @Yaknowwhat Ah there we go! compete! When the team plays a game like last night, everybody looks right past our glorious 1C and goes right for Kadri with the compete attack.
There's no excuse to not change things up considering Bozak's didn't look like he had a lot of "compete" either.
@wendelsfist @Yaknowwhat I mean, it's not like Carlyle's ever been one to pick favourites, right?......
@Yaknowwhat Nothing really supports that. Kessel wants to win. He saw what it's like to play with an actual top 6 center at the Olympics.
Has any other line in the league been played together for as long as the Leafs top line has? Don't know how hard it would be to change it up.
@MaxwellHowe keeping him away from the mess.
5 days, 14 hours ago on Game Review: Game #8, Boston Bruins 4 vs. Maple Leafs 1
@MaxwellHowe @wiski Or they're trading 1 for 2!
@Cameron19 @loomx @Yan28 What a shit gig for him though.
tbh, I've wanted him gone long ago. I think he gets the "works hard" tag mostly because he always says the right things. IMO he's one of the biggest coasters out there which doesn't fit on a team that already has JVR and Kessel. He's been good this season, but I haven't seen much of that while he was here.
@hometeem It'll get easier as we get closer to the deadline once teams are sure they won't be in the lottery.
@Cameron19 @Yan28 Need to sell high. He's 31. The team isn't going to be ready to win while he's still good.
@Bruffins It's impossible to ruin his development with losing. He feels no pain.
@Bruffins Although it depends on the direction of the team. I say those guys because I don't think they're going to tear it down, if we're rebuilding, then Kadri, Gardiner, and Leo.
@Bruffins Kessel, Kadri, JVR.
@Yan28 5) turn on that 1C because he hasn't become a two-way god at 24.
@Yan28 @loomx Doubt it. Leafs will screw that up too.

We currently hold the 6th overall pick. Should be good enough for Zacha, Barzal, Kylington, or Strome.
@WendelGilmour Should've done that last summer. Don't think Randy can coach any other team other than one that's already very good and needs an extra push. Worst coach for a young team.
@wendelsfist @DJBrianBurke @NotSince67 Considering it's usually teams with the highest corsi that end up on top, it's won quite a bit, actually.

@wendelsfist @loomx @NotSince67 When you commit 5.25x7 after preaching that the only thing wrong with the team was a lack of "character" and "compete", he kind of was supposed to be.
@wendelsfist @NotSince67 Did anybody say analytics would be a savior?
@wendelsfist @loomx @Yan28 I don't disagree as long as we can all recognize that Carlyle and Nonis are also major problems.
@wendelsfist @loomx @Yan28 Had Reimer for half a season and the next year he got injured.
@wendelsfist @Yan28 Sooooo if Carlyle had the same results as Wilson, and Carlyle has Bernier and Reimer while Wilson had Toskala and Gustavsson.....what does that tell us?
@Alec Brownscombe @loomx @MaxwellHowe I don't think I'd ever cheer for another team. Can't say I'd rule not cheering for the Leafs though with the way things are going. Hardly seems worth my time. It's the Leafs or nothing I guess. There's losing, and then there's losing like the Leafs have been since 2005.
@Alec Brownscombe @loomx @MaxwellHowe Gonna call child services on your ass.
@Bruffins @loomx I just know they're going to win the season after my death.
@MaxwellHowe @loomx No way I'm raising any of my potential children as Leaf fans.

Question: Are the Leafs ever going to win a cup in your lifetime?
I honestly can't see it happening.
@WendelGilmour @loomx @Kenny Powers Jeff Carter, Marian Gaborik are the more recent examples.
@docmma Yeah it looks like he tried and he's really honest, in reality he's one of the biggest coasters on the team. Hasn't changed this season either IMO.
@WendelGilmour @loomx @Kenny Powers Problem I have with the "unwilling" or "lazy" or "lack of compete" arguments is that whenever people talk about that in relation to certain players, they go elsewhere and suddenly have compete and willingness.
@Jay31 @docmma @Leafs2 Isles1 I'm so proud of MLHS. I was expecting a flurry of "Bozak is not the problem" posts. Instead I got "because he's worthless".
@Bruffins @loomx ah, of course!
