@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.
1 day, 18 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
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".
1 day, 19 hours ago on Thursday Mashup: Bruins Saturday
@Alec Brownscombe @Hammertownleaffan @Bruffins That...is....amazing
@Alec Brownscombe @Bruffins I'll bite here....who the hell is tracking shots in ball hockey?
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).
1 week, 3 days ago on GDT: Game 4, Colorado Avalanche at Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
@MaxwellHowe @Cameron19 The hell does Panik do that Frattin can't? Frattin has way more upside IMO
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
@distant rumblings I'm going to go ahead and give you a ticket for indecent exposure for that one...peeing on parades is strictly prohibited here
@Bruffins Loops looks possessed....he hit everything that moved
@loomx My Grandma apparently taught him in Sunday school....described him to me as "A kid who was always eager to please"....looks like it to me!
Robidas has not been good...There's no way Randy does it but Gardiner should be in for him next game...that was a F***in fun game to watch though, eh boys?
@twitting_sg Varlomov too good, and those kids are too talented not to start lighting it up eventually
I'm really glad I waited 6 months to watch us lose with 30 seconds left on an own-goal tip in and get absolutely demolished 3 days later....ugh
1 week, 6 days ago on GDT: Game #2, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., CBC)
@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
Fuck off Phil
Man for all the shit Phil is getting....JVR looks terrrrrrrible
MR SATURDAY NIGHT!
he just said we drafted a Swinn and a Fede....jesus
Cherry up to his xenophobic self....my god I need more beer
I'm going to need a new liver after this season.
@Cameron19 In honour of your avatar, "Bloody Mary, full of Vodka, blessed are you among cocktails."
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: More Hockey Tomorrow
@Cameron19 Cam why do you have to depress me like this? I'm going to go drink (more).
@nrandreycharles I've been panik-ing about #71 for about a year now, so maybe he should get that number.
@mike_84 For Leaf fans? Probably around game 4 or 5.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Maple Leafs claim Richard Panik off the waiver wire
@Jmessih He looked like he was "playing" in his driveway yesterday too.
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?
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #1, Montreal Canadiens 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3
@Bruffins You could watch highlights from all 82 games last year and not find a single fourth line chance.
@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...
Do yourselves a favour and DONT go to nhl.com and click on "stats-league leaders"....the pictures of the current leaders are a Leaf fan's nightmare
@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.
@Alec Brownscombe I wore my jersey to school today and an American lady said "your shirt spelled Leaves wrong". I think I like yours better buddy.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on GDT: Game #1, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m., Sportsnet)
@docmma ouch thats harsh. Maybe I'm just being a little romantic about it because they're Canadian, but they're one of my favourite bands. Soundtrack to my college experience.
@Forever17 Im laughing my ass off
Bill Barilko disappeared....one summer
@loomx Saw them once at a small house of blues in Cleveland. Blew me away. That was not one of their best tunes, just happened to be hockey related (lonely end of the rink)
@Jmessih 7:22 is what I worked out last time Sportsnet showed the countdown
THE HIP! YESS!
Damn are they not broadcasting The Hip show? I was looking forward to that
Loading up the main page and seeing "GDT: Game #1" brought a tear to my eye. I think it's time something awesome happens to this franchise. Why the hell not this year? GO.LEAFS.GO!!!
@skiingallday 8 Guinness tallboys for me. Maybe a couple cigars. And a pizza. Thaaaaanks.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on MLHS Bloggers Predict the Maple Leafs’ 2014-15 Finish
@Potcy @Hammertownleaffan When that little sensation gets in your braaaaaaain.
"And you said you didn't give a f*** about hockey, and I never heard someone say that before. You held my hand and we walked home the long way, you were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr" -The Hip, FireworksI. Am. So. Jacked.
God I feel like a nerd. I've got the Leafs/Sens game from before the Olympic break fired up on my chromecast (Phil's hatty in a comeback win), threw a Leafs jersey on, and I'm having a few pints. It's Christmas eve boys!
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Viktor Loov staying in Toronto; Pridham’s cap manoeuvring
http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/HockeyBuzz-Hotstove/Hotstove-Ranking-The-NHLs-Top-5-Wingers/187/62847I obviously don't put too much stock into it, but the only guy to be ranked in the top 5 of wingers by each columnist? Phil-ly F'n Cheese.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Season Opener Eve
@DeclanK @Burtonboy I think in the short term it's OK. But so help me if Franson slots in where Percy is when he comes back.
http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/blood-moon-lunar-eclipse-returns-sky-wednesday/story?id=26000889There's a "blood moon" that is going to be visible early Wednesday morning in North America. I'm going to take this as a means to symbolize that the streets of Toronto will run red with Hab blood on Wednesday. Or the Apocalypse....either/or really.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Maple Leafs cut Colton Orr, Fraser McLaren, William Nylander; Roster down to 23
@Cameron19 @loomx I'll make my own montages and post them here. It's going to mostly be me chugging Guinness in my Kessel jersey with Arcade Fire playing in the background, but it'll be better than nothing...right?
