Nope never said that. But I did see plenty of times JVR and Lupul standing around and not engaging the puck along the boards. Consistency and hard work was our biggest problems last year from the players. The coaches shit the bed period.
1 day, 2 hours ago on Brendan Shanahan Addresses Depth, Not Core of Toronto Maple Leafs
Problems started from day one though. Players wouldn't go into the corners nor battle along the boards. As I said, no excuses for the players, I blame the players and the coaches :)
I blame the players and the coaches

@Greg Fenton @LN-093
Lupul is a good player but his inconsistencies is what kills the second line. Kadri suffers from the same thing but the difference is he's younger and still developing. Not saying trade Lupul... but if we do, we better be getting somebody back that can fill his spot otherwise I agree with you and the second line will suffer even more...
Clarkson just needs players on his line that are consistent. Lupul and Kadri were far from that last year. Also, Clarkson got put with McClement quite a bit so I don't know how anybody expected him to put up points...
1 day, 19 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
I hear ya... but Kadri was very inconsistent along with Lupul last year. Clarkson needs to step it up but so does most of the team. To say that Clarkson was the only bad player last year is wrong.

switch Konti with Clarkson
@Cloud09 @LeafsGuru @leafmealone
Dude, enough with the Clarkson hate. The whole team was terrible last year with the exception of a few players. New system this year, new coaches, better players, better upper management... you get the picture. Clarkson will bounce back
2 days, 3 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
Yes Clarkson had a bad year but so did our coaching staff and it doesn't help that Lupul and Kadri were extremely inconsistent which isn't something Clarkson is use to coming from NJ. Kadri gets a pass though as he is still young and figuring it out. Lupul on the other hand...
2 days, 4 hours ago on Toronto Maple Leafs sign Daniel Winnik to a one-year deal
Now that's a good looking fourth line
Guessing that makes Frattin the extra player sitting. But that's a good problem to have and I'm sure he'll push guys like Clarkson even harder to be on there game
2 days, 4 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Gardiner’s Up Next
Time to hold players accountable again. Hopefully this depth will keep players honest
Lupul isn't as effective on the RW. Don't know how many more times the guy has to state that and prove it
@Mcost61 @GreekGod @Dangle_My_Berries @reenergized
That's still 40 games too much. I don't like him as a player and as a human being.
6 days, 5 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Shannahan is making Randy change his system so hopefully those days are long gone where our goalie needs to make 20 saves a period
Booth is an idiot. Pissed that the Leafs signed him.
@Greg Fenton @Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs @Mitch_S2
Shooting down an animal from far away isn't anything to be proud of. Like that girl posting pics of her killing a lion. How about you grab a fucking knife and go after the animal and lets see if you can kill a lion then. Standing 100 yards away and pulling the trigger is something that a child can do...
6 days, 6 hours ago on (Thursday Mashup) David Booth: Another low-risk option with upside potential
Carlyle definitely more so then Nonis
1 week ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
Waiting for Babcock's contract to expire at season's end with Detroit. The second year on Randy's contract is club option...
1 week, 1 day ago on Poulin, Loiselle Fired as Assistant GMs; Leafs bring in Kyle Dubas
@Greg Fenton @Waiting4LSC
Everyone always says that and we see what players go for now a days... Seguin, Spezza etc.
This reminds me of when ppl were saying the Leafs had to give up a 1st + Kadri + Gardiner for Luongo. Pure garbage.
Not saying O'Rielly will be cheap but he won't be anywhere near what some are suggesting
1 week, 2 days ago on Cody Franson Signs with Toronto Maple Leafs for 1 year, $3.3m
Thanks for coming out John...
Think we can spend the cap better else where
We went from being one of the team's nobody wanted to play against to the team everybody wanted to play against in a year's time... Hoping we can go back and add to that season and continue on that path.
1 week, 3 days ago on Weekend Mashup: $2.2 million apart
@Mcost61 @Dewy Keon Hogturd
He did... but then he heard that Randy is coming back for another year ;)
2 weeks ago on Matt Frattin on TSN 1050
Really? I remember Kane's mom saying she's gonna cook enough food to last him a year when he was first drafted by the Peg.
3 weeks ago on Bargain Shopping: Remaining UFA Forwards
@Mind Bomb @ingy56 @Bruffins @TheCanucksnaphook
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Bargain Shopping: Remaining UFA Forwards
Hoping that Babcock will be able to change all that after taking over for Randy next season :)
Carlyle really did a number on this team last year. No wonder some players don't want to sign here
@dlb Mad @MaxwellHowe
Komarov was a big reason as to why teams engaged us physically a couple years ago which made it worth to have either Orr or McLaren in the lineup and sometimes even both.
But with that being said, I'd rather have Broll or Devane in there now. They can both actually play hockey and fuck people up
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@Black_Hawk @dlb Mad
Wouldn't say they don't work. Kadri and Clarkson and Lupul had a weird year. If they can all get there shit together then things could work.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan
Think Joe has a NTC
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Maple Leafs submit an offer to David Legwand
Crosby to Pittsburgh was pretty fishy. Ever since then I've had my doubts
Yup... Phaneuf plays on the other side. It's not a big deal to some players. Don't know what Granberg is like on the Left side but I'm sure they'll give him a shot there
@mcloki @Bon Scott was a Leaf fan
@mike_84 gotta feeling it's gonna be Granberg. Heard Nonis mention his name quite a bit the past couple of days.
Franson definitely. Can't see Lupul leaving until we have a replacement for him. ie prospect or through trade or UFA
4 weeks ago on Toronto Maple Leafs Updated Depth Chart
Nonis mentioned that he wants to give Gardiner and Rielly more opportunity this season. Think he hinted at:
Gardiner - Phaneuf
Rielly - Robidas
as the top 4
4 weeks ago on Dave Nonis on Primetime Sports
That's right because the fan base that sells out every game no matter how shitty the team has been is the problem.
1 month ago on Maple Leafs’ Tim Gleason to be bought out
Just sucks for us all because it's true
Wish the Leafs went this hard for a number one C. But no they do it on Josh Fucking Gorges
Yup it's official. I've lost all confidence in this management group now.
got to be Ashton
Shanahan has stated that RC"s system is done. new system will be put in place for next season
I base it on everything I've heard, read, and seen on Nylander and the kid looks fucking awesome!
Weather effected most of the Euro teams. Especially with most games not having water breaks.
M@lukethenuke @GreekGod @JMAC17
McKegg and Carrick need more time to develop
Ott to centre the fourth line with Komarov on his wing
