@wiski @loomx @Cameron19  They did, but I need somebody to cheer against. I wanted the Hawks to win both times. It's probably the upside of having the Habs and Bruins advanced, I'm cheering for whatever team comes out of the Metro division.

Anaheim could sure use Dustin Penner right now. Gave him away.

@djamon @loomx  two 1st and a 2nd for Kessel. The 2nd was originally our own that we traded to Montreal I think, made it's way to Chicago, and we re-acquired it for a 2nd(Saad) and a 3rd. It ended up being a useless move because Burke didn't even use an offer sheet.

@Zep2  You could even say Seguin, Hamilton, Saad. Saad was the 2nd rounder the Leafs gave up along with a 3rd to re-acquire the 2nd that they traded to Boston.

It was starting to happen with Burke, but that firing put them in a tailspin of not knowing what to do. MLSE is the worst organization in sports.

@NotTheCanucksnaphook @Cloud09  Leafs TV is such a friggin waste. They get the lowest amount of games during the season and hardly show any Marlies games. It's dumb. I'm pretty much through with paying for cable. Gonna stream all my games and pay for Netflix instead.

@Bobsyouruncle  by the way, Bolland was a bottom 6 player by the end of that regular season. He lost his job to Michael Handzus. In the playoffs, his most common linemates were Frolik and Kruger.

@DARF24  So you're thinking the NHL is trying to get the Habs to win, but when the Leafs face a Florida team and lose, it's because the NHL wants the struggling teams to win?

18 hours ago on Morning Mashup

Reply

@Komas Taberle @loomx  Exactly. This is the problem. Refs can't really be punished.


Your punishment is a bit harsh and Soviet Russia-like. But the NHL should literally be allowed to send refs down to the AHL for repeated glaring errors.

@DARF24 @loomx  oh the Habs. Thought you meant french nhl refs lead in PP's given. 


Yeah and Kadri is among the best at drawing penalties. Being good at drawing penalties is a thing. Whether a french ref calls it all the time is not clear.

The Ron MacLean comments are overblown. He made a mistake by saying a french ref shouldn't be reffing an important game in Montreal. What he meant was that local refs shouldn't ref game to eliminate perceived bias, which is true. Soccer does it in international competitions. The issue is that this only gets brought up with refs with french names. Any other time and the place where a ref is born is never brought up, as if only french refs cannot call a game without being biased.

@Cameron19 @loomx  LOL okay there. They're wrong, I'm right. The NHL is against me and me only and favours the teams I hate. gotcha

@Cameron19 @loomx @Marlies Man  and that natural fan bias is pure BS. You assume that all Quebec refs are Habs fans, all Calgary refs are Calgary fans, all Toronto refs are Leafs fans. It's nonsense. A lot of refs have been awful and IMO it's because of the union that protects them and the lack of accountability. Refs should be moved in and out of the NHL based on their performance like every player. Now, I'm not familiar with union rules, but I don't think refs and be fired or switched in-season. Performance only affects playoff assignments. These "game management" and "natural fan bias" excuses are nothing but reasons used to describe an unfavourable result from a fan perspective.

@Marlies Man  So now the NHL is favouring a Canadian team and wanting a Florida teams to lose? These conspiracy theories keep changing, I can't keep up.

@djamon @loomx  I see it more like: 


Gardiner-Phaneuf

Rielly-Boychuk

Gleason-Ranger

Granberg


that's an upgrade IMO. The biggest upgrades on the team D needs to come from forward changes though.

@Cameron19 @loomx  natural fan bias? How do you know he was a Habs fan? Maybe he was a Nords fan who hated the Habs more than anyone. You're making an awful lot of assumptions based on where a person was born. St. Laurent has been awful for everybody.

@Komas Taberle @loomx  I know. Might be a good change of scenery switch. I mean, Gunnar to another team, then trade for Boychuk

@Komas Taberle  Would be a cheap, solid addition. If the Leafs are shipping out Gunnar and Boston needs to shed more salary, Johnny Boychuk might be a good option too.

@wendelsfist @loomx @Belfour20/JB-45  It is thus impossible for him to combine his natural ability to crush people with his recently acquired and vastly improved defensive game to know when it's smart to step up on a hit like this?

@Jmessih @loomx  That's not the point though. He doesn't do it often because he never gets help. With a better defensive team, he can afford to take more liberties that increases animosity in the game.
