Watching PJ Stock struggle to articulate even the most basic thought in this video is entertaining.
23 hours, 33 minutes ago on Agent Pat Morris on David Clarkson trade
appropropos of absolutely nothing, both Bo Horvat and Jared McCann are very annoying names. They sound like lifelong Canucks. But if they were awesome I suppose I could get over it. ;)
1 day, 1 hour ago on Agent Pat Morris on David Clarkson trade
I take your point, but I'm not sure shananhan cares. About the optics if he believes he has the right mix in his leadership team. Nonis doesn't really have signing authority anymore, but people talk like does. But I'd he's just one voice at the table, Has the on the job experience, and shows up to the deadline he can execute on the collective brain trust, why would shanahan go elsewhere right now? What's the hurry ?
1 day, 7 hours ago on Friday Mashup: It Really Happened
I may be crazy but I always thought there was a good chance that nonis didn't get fired after this year. Team player guy who doesn't seem to mind beingjust one voice on the team even if he's the guy who takes the calls.
Is this a good return? I have no idea.
3 days, 2 hours ago on Daniel Winnik Traded to Pittsburgh
@MaxwellHowe That a team that went on a 10-1-1 record in November could finish bottom two/three -- that's focus right there.
1 week ago on GDT: Game #60, Winnipeg Jets at Toronto Maple Leafs (7 p.m., CBC)
There's something very fitting how, after three consecutive collapses, we've decided to ride this flaming 18-wheeler harder and faster to a Top 3-4 pick and hopefully a franchise player. That's called playing to your strengths.
Jokinen for captain.
I'm just jokinen.
1 week, 6 days ago on Leafs Trade Mike Santorelli & Cody Franson to the Nashville Predators
Clarkson always looks flabbergasted. What else is new
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Reimer to start third consecutive
While I think the Leafs are not as poor as their recent streak says they are (all things being equal, I suspect they're a 9th/10th place team) and capable of putting enough wins together to bring them back to mediocre instead of godawful, I actually don't expect the leafs to do it because I think the core knows it's done for and is entirely deflated. I think we're most likely to see a pretty sub-par performance from here on out.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Wednesday Mashup: The Small Victories
From all the talk over the years of building parity in the game and giving teams an equal playing field, we've ended up on the far opposite end. The evolution of the cap system, contracts, waivers, etc has largely stonewalled teams from meaningful player movement in any way. As a diehard of a mediocre team, it's frustrating because it eliminates all those opportunities to change your team in an attempt to improve.
1 month ago on Game 49 Scoring Chances: Devils 2 vs. Maple Leafs 1 (SO)
Question: Does anyone else notice how rielly NEVER hits the net when he shoots? I feel like it's ridiculous, but wondering if it's just confirmation bias now.
Not a comment on the kid, great player. But am I wrong on this observation?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #43, Los Angeles Kings 2 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 0
So in hindsight Carlyle actually had a .535 win percentage with this goofy team?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Randy Carlyle Fired
One day in January nonis told the team he was just going out to the corner store for a pack of ice cream. He never came back.
"You mean I don't have to drive this 18-wheeler of a school bus anymore? Awesome." Randy Carlyle
It was time for Randy to go. Kept kicking a dead horse Good coach, wrong team, wrong guys. Now they can start working on the wrong players part.
Randy was definitely part of the problem. Most importantly, him being gone will make it clear just how much the players are at fault too. It's a start.

Sorry, Rogers. Cbc has no balls anymore
2 months, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #33, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Philadelphia Flyers (7 p.m., CBC)
Quick, someone should send an outraged complaint to cbc. Might be out chance to get him off air.
Quick poll - jerseys on the ice tonight?
Hear me out on this one.
Let's hire Healy as coach. At least then no one will have to listen to him during the game
Dominic from Woodbridge types will be on fire
Does this mean only Gardiner plays next game?
Would be nice if a rocket puck found its way up into the announcers box
Finally being able to post by phone has its disadvantages
Wow how lucky is Simmonds that he gets to live Sith voracek, the greatest player who ever live (besides Giroux)?
Hes scoring but doing nothing else
This has the leafs annual December swoon written all over it!
Jvr what happened to you this past off-season?
Someone tell me what the hell is going on
Furrowing his brow in a vain attempt to understand the situation.
2 months, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #32, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., TSN4)
Side note this Curtis lazar seems like a good kid. And immensely talented
Aaron ward's really giving them hell!
That's the sound of the hot air leaving the leafs' heads.
It's also the sound of the wind blowing between Jake's ears.
So true! This is thé one that would lose, they'll be better against Philly
Every time I hear Jay Harrison mentioned I am amazed
I would bet if you actually asked jvr how his season was going, he'd think it was pretty great. Putting up points, a few demonstrations of slick hands, etc. Totally oblivious that he's been terrible almost everywhere else.
We really should try Jake Gardiner on another team.
If those guys were a four-man team of their own, gold would be probable.
2 months, 1 week ago on Thursday Mashup: Polak returning, Shooting for Seven
Number three, with a bullet.
Wiserhood slow clap.
2 months, 1 week ago on Game Review: Game #31, Maple Leafs 6 vs. Anaheim Ducks 2
@Alec Brownscombe @B_Leaf And I love these stories about his seriousness, the way he goes about his business off the ice. Total pro. Coach's pet is a great way to put it. Hell, Randy probably sees him as son-in-law material.
The deep stats say the leafs need to improve to continue on this tear.. well duh. Too bad we're all too abused as Leafs fans or media to treat this information responsibly sometimes. Of course teams like the Ducks sometimes outplay the Leafs, either by sight or deep stats metrics. They're the friggin Ducks, they're a great team. The leafs still played quite well, they played with speed, they got timely dangerous offence, they mostly played solid defence, and the goalie bailed them out when necessary. And it ended 6-2 with a bang.
It's pretty good times in Leafland, and I won't let anyone shit in my cereal. There's room for improvement, but here's hoping they simply continue to grow as a group over the season, and mostly keep on winning while they do.
This Stephen Burtch guy seems like the least fun individual on the planet.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Ducks in town
@Xxxxxnew Can't believe I haven't seen that before. Bizarre moment
I will watch the next three games with great interest, all the more so as I will probably be tempted to cover my eyes and avoid the TV while the leafs go on that monster 7-game road trip with some pretty good teams.
Well now, this is certainly a contrarian opinion.
Anyone watching eakins
