@MaxwellHowe Crazy stat. I love watching those hi-lites with my dad and him yelling "Look what Gretz does here!", and all I see is some woeful looking goalie trying in vain to make a kick-save. The butterfly ruined the sport, dammit!

@traNsplantEdneWfie @Mind Bomb @Jmessih I could also argue that mixed martial arts is open to the whole world, while hockey is really only played in a handful of countries. I remember seeing a clip of GSP getting off a plane in the Philippines, and the airport was literally shut down because he was there. Wayne Gretzky never had that kind of appeal worldwide. That said, Gretzky, Nash, Orr, GSP are all amazing athletes, and I'm proud they came from here.

@docmma @Hammertownleaffan It's a mixture of Bernier's quote from 24/7, sarcasm, and my own general feelings about this dumpster fire of a franchise.

@Jmessih 7 games...but ya, he's right at his career pace. If I was being nit-picky, I'd prefer it didnt all come in bunches. But hey, he's The Phil.

Steve Nash threw out his back again. Done for the year, and likely for his career. It's a terrible way for it to end, he made me damn proud to be Canadian when he was in his prime.

@Alec Brownscombe @Hammertownleaffan @Bruffins I play in a floor hockey league at school with a bunch of guys who have never played hockey before. I'm constantly yelling at them to just drive the puck at the net because, well....it's floor hockey. I often feel like any coach taking on the Leafs...."just whack it from anywhere....these guys will find ways to screw it up".

Would love to see us carry this forward...a Datsyuk-less Detroit team is ripe for the picking. I hate the Dead Things, we owe them a beating (or 2).

I thought you guys were nuts with these theories on Clarkson last year. I truly could not stand the guy, and was absolutely dreading having to watch him for another 6 years. While he's not completely back in my good books, you guys were absolutely right, he fits in so well on that cycling third line. His contract is obviously still ridiculous, and his hands drive me crazy, but I'll say it....atta boy Clarky

@MaxwellHowe "deflects the rebound to the left, away from the player on the right"....he made a scrambling save and that was literally the only way the puck could have deflected....definitely need to give him credit for simple physics

Assumption time! After watching a real game, what do we realistically think happens when Booth comes back? Do they give him a shot on Kadri's wing, shuffle Kozun to the 3rd/4th, and put Frattin in the press box?

@B_Leaf Phil was putrid. He's a superstar, and I don't have any doubts that it'll all come together. I wore his jersey tonight FFS. But man....that is not how you want to start off a 64 million dollar contract. He was floating, disinterested, had countless passes just bounce off skates and get turned up ice, and had a horrible break out pass that indirectly lead to the third goal. Hell, he could have redeemed it all if he got that buzzer beater top corner. Better days coming for the Phil...

@BrandonCheema @Hammertownleaffan No no not saying you're over-reacting at all. It was a fair question. I was more so pointing out that if Bernier plays another so-so game and Reimer looks good on Sunday, we're in for a lot of nonsense from the MSM.

@BrandonCheema It's a back-to-back anyways (we're so good at those!). Bernier Saturday, Reimer Sunday, ridiculous over-reactions on Monday.
