@Anthony Petrielli @Hammertownleaffan Oh, I have zero doubt he'll put it together. I also realize it's super nitpicky to comment on our stud sophomore, I just feel like if he puts that shot together he has the potential to be Subban-lite.
20 hours, 10 minutes ago on Tuesday Mashup: 3 Days Off
I tend to complain about Reilly's shot, but I do hear he has been working on it. I just fired up some hi-lites (low-lites?) of the last preseason game against Buffalo, and watched him ring a clapper off of Kaleta's face. I'm hoping for big things from him, and more inflicted stitches.

@WesternDP Where did you pick this beer up? Looks phenomenal.
1 day, 22 hours ago on GDT: Preseason Game #8, Maple Leafs at Red Wings (7:30 p.m., LeafsTV)
@Alec Brownscombe Did you look up the exact section number?
What's up guys! I took most of the summer off from posting, but now that we are almost back in full swing, I'm ready to join the madness again. Sportsnet was airing a replay from last season last night where we played the Sabres and allowed like 20 shots in the second period. Remember how bad we were? Hilarious right......wait.....what?....that wasn't a replay? Alright, see you guys in 12 months!
2 days, 6 hours ago on Game Review: Preseason Game #7, Maple Leafs 3 vs. Sabres 2 (SO)
@sniperstar Are you watching game 7 in Boston?? There's some live games on!
1 week ago on Double GDT: Preseason Game #3&4, Senators vs. Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4&5)
@EricHussey2Day @Greg Fenton I'm thinking, like your avatar Stanley, you should just do crosswords while the grown ups have meetings.

@docmma @Hammertownleaffan Thanks buddy....cheers
2 months ago on James Reimer Signs for 2 years, $2.3 million per season
@docmma @Hammertownleaffan I could easily do the same analysis...but the golf course is calling today...I'll post it when I get it done though
I always joke around with my buddies and call Lupul "Mr. Saturday Night" as it always seemed that he was putting up points on hockey night in Canada. I decided to look into the most recent season and found this:
-Lupul had 13 goals, 8 assists, and 21 points in 19 Saturday night games this season.
-Those 19 games represent 27% of the 69 total games he played this year.-The 21 points represent 48% of his yearly point total of 44 points.-The 13 goals represent a whopping 60% of his yearly goal production of 22.-Saturday night Lupul, if playing a full 82 game season, is capable of producing 56 goals and 91 points.Summary: Play like it's Saturday night every night Loops!
@dlb Mad @Hammertownleaffan I watched this with two American buddies who don't watch hockey and they were just freaking out at what happened after we scored...where else can you score a goal (or point) and just get punched repeatedly in the face, and its acceptable? God I love hockey
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Bargain Shopping: Remaining UFA Forwards
Loved your top 5 Bruf...I would add Lupul's buzzer beater against Edmonton from early in the year, as I watched that game with an Edmonton fan, and I would also add this one, as it's Nazzy at his finest (we came back in this one too)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwiJyCXjS-s
@Bruffins @dlb Mad Ashton surprising me is akin to a child with a deadbeat dad having his dad show up to his 6th birthday wasted. Sure, he's surprising you with his presence, but he's still going to puke on your new toys. The bar is low. (Seriously though, I hope Ashton tears it up.)
3 months ago on Petri Kontiola Signs with Maple Leafs on a 1-year, $1.1 million deal
Ryan Miller's forehead looks like it's trying to escape from the rest of his body....some of that 18 million is going towards hair plugs for sure
3 months ago on Maple Leafs sign Stephane Robidas to 3-year, $9-million deal
I guess I'm happy to have Frattin back solely because his buzzer-beater in overtime against Buffalo was the hardest I've cheered in a regular season game in a long time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fspkFvTOnPY
I can only assume the Nonis interview was pushed back to 4pm so Bobby has time to run out and get some more blush. "Bobby! These cheeks ain't rosy enough!"
I just read Bernier to the Devils and dropped my phone. Steve Bernier everyone....Steve Bernier...
@Cameron19 @Hammertownleaffan I'm just spit-balling ways to get center depth. Then again, I'm also assuming we want to win. If we don't, well then that's a different story. We can just wait for Bozie's inevitable UBI and the rest will fall into place.
@Cameron19 @Hammertownleaffan Can we pry Berglund out of there with Reimer, Franson +
St.Louis still have 8.5 million in cap space...that's scary
@ProfessorRance It's definitely a feed-forward effect...the teams are coached and managed well, good players see that, then more good players want to go, etc, etc.....Could be a tough cycle to get out of. Look at the rosters of LA, St Louis, Colorado, Anaheim. We are light-years behind those teams.
@Jordan29 Wait...do they need a keeper? Fire Reimer over there too...that might work
@Jordan29 I dont think St.Louis wants anymore d-men....plus they actually PLAYED us last year and saw that dumpster fire live...there's no way they do this
@whalz @Hammertownleaffan @NinetyThree I hope so
3 months ago on Free Agency Day: Maple Leafs Targets
@NinetyThree @Hammertownleaffan The combination of Frattin and Clarkson could honestly be horrible...not sure how it's even fixed at this point. Hope to god Frattin got a wake up call last year I guess.
@NinetyThree Frattin couldn't crack C-Bus' lineup,I dunno if we should just pencil him into the second line yet
@RandomScrub @Hammertownleaffan Ha...I'm all for it man...just need to prepare emotionally
@rickpearce76 @Hammertownleaffan I like him too, it just would be nice to have some depth behind him
@RandomScrub @Hammertownleaffan McDavid city if Bozak or Kadri go down
Who the hell is going to play center for us next year....are we just praying Holland can walk into 3C and that everyone stays healthy??
Buffalo will be better than us in a year or two...Florida is better (maybe?)...back to worst in our division
@Leafs_17 @wiski now I'm a believerrrr
@Bruffins @Cloud09 That quote haunts my dreams
@LeafFan15 I hope its a 95 MPH fastball right at his severed achilles...see ya Dave
@Loric76 Someone has to back up Bernier...
@Reether That looks like a pipe dream at this point...like it always does when it comes to the Leafs and C's
@Loric76 Good riddance to bad rubbish with terrible achilles'
I'm hoping I log on to TSN at noon and the headline is "Bolland to Florida"...the longer he hangs out there, the more likely we are to do something ridiculous
3 months ago on Maple Leafs’ Tim Gleason to be bought out
@Cameron19 @Hammertownleaffan Bolland and Glass...one is literally Mr.Glass, the other is figuratively Mr. Glass....I hate it
@Cameron19 Bolland and?
I'm going to have my Kessel jersey in one hand, and a blowtorch in the other..."Because it's the draft"
3 months ago on (Draft Day Mashup) The Day Has Arrived
@KurtWhite @Hammertownleaffan I only ask as I have read a bunch of mock drafts that have him going to us. I feel like we have plenty of D in the pipeline, just wanted to gauge what people thought.
3 months ago on (Thursday Mashup) Maple Leafs considering Tony Granato as potential assistant coach, Dave Nonis meets with media ahead of draft
Does anyone want Hayden Fleury?
@HHT I always wanted this kid. Felt like we might be getting our own version of Kopitar. Make it happen.
@Zep2 Guillermo Del Toro is doing it...it sounds interesting
@T K O I dont understand....from the looks of this they could have just got this guy in the second round if they wanted. I don't think any of the other teams even know his name. What happens if Lowry leaves? We could have had Shabazz-matazz
@Jay_Berg @mcloki I'm dying laughing..the texts my buddies are sending me are fantastic. "He's a great athlete, but he really can't play basketball". I hate Toronto.
@Uncle Otis @Hammertownleaffan I would literally pay a thousand dollars to see a huge African guy drop the mitts with Shawn Thornton. Sign me up.
The Leafs are going to draft D'ante A'joreekpo...A freak athlete from Kenya who's never seen ice before
