Morning MB...........I always like looking at AP's "things he would do" as i tend to agree with most (not all) of them :) I especially agree with his #1 point.....DO NOT let Brown or Nylander anywhere near this team.......
6 days, 20 hours ago on Friday Mashup: Nylander set for Marlies debut tonight in Hamilton
I know Lupul isnt going to be back until early February but i havent heard a thing about Holland......anyone?
2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #44, Anaheim Ducks 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 0
@Mind Bomb @Jon5200 I'm very happy with Gauthier.....imho, he will turn into someone the Leafs can use when they want to shut things down, protect a one goal lead, defensive (big) centre etc....
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Wednesday Mashup: Road trip continues in Anaheim
I, for 1, am sooo glad the Leafs did not draft Domi.....yes, i agree he had a great wjc tourney.....but the circus around him would be another distraction this team does not need....besides, imho, they drafted the right player in Nylander, the potential is much higher !!
@Mcost61 I wonder if Phil has seen half the pic's of him on this site ??? They r hiii larious !!
2 weeks, 3 days ago on William Nylander is coming to Toronto
How many times did one of the boyz from TSN say that Nylander may have been the most skilled player in the draft.......i agree yaknowwhat, given an equal skill set i'd also take the Canadian but, as u said, this Nylander has ELITE talent......imho, the Leafs have a diamond in the ruff:)
@wendelsfist @drummond agree wendelsfist......truely though......the only way to shut Cherry and ALL the haters and ALL the negative press in this city.......JUST WIN BABY !!! I cannot wait for the day Nylander is tearing it up and Nick Ritchie is with the Ducks AHL team......
@drummond But then u piss off Connor Brown....our hometown boy:)
@Cameron19 @Jon5200 @Forever17 @Burtonboy thats why i said 'deal signed' and not deal offered :)
@Forever17 @Cameron19 @Burtonboy Unless they have assurances from his agent on a new deal signed after the trade....i agree
AP really hit the nail on the head :)......i hope the marlies keep him the rest of the year with NO call up possible.....start there next year and see where he is at that time.......i'm really starting to turn off Don Cherry....his, what seems to be constant bashing of the Leafs is wearing REALLY thin.......lets c where Nylander ends up a year or 2 from now and compare that to where Nick Ritchie is then as well.......talent wise, there's no comparison.....
@Burtonboy @Jon5200 TOTALLY agree......they r also on a bit of a roll lately.....almost in a playoff spot now.......funny, everytime i check the scoresheet from a game lately, Matt Frattin is on it.....

Like Connor Brown, plan with William Nylander is not to recall him to the NHL this season, regardless of injuries to Leafs.
Thanx Burtonboy for the update......i was going to throw in my 2 cents that i think he should be put with the Marlies for the rest of thid year with NO chance of a call up.....and start there next year and see where he is at then....physically and naturity wise........
I couldnt agree more about the scheduling comment above.....most teams, when finishing a road trip of more than 3 games with different times zones involved usually get a little bit of a break before their 1st home game back.....the Leafs, ONE DAY....just compare the Leafs schedule to montreal's and tell me they r equal........what a joke...............
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Game Review: Game #43, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. Columbus Blue Jackets 2
@Mind Bomb @Jon5200 Pls MB....do not say 'hard'.....and have April in the same discussion :)
2 weeks, 6 days ago on Thursday Mashup: No miracle fix in Horachek’s first game
@Mind Bomb MB....LOL.....2 funny !!
geez....forgot to add....April Reimer is smokin hot !!!
I am a BIG fan of shanny's and the moves he's made so far....i also think nonny is not long for this team......imho, tanking NEVER solves anything, it sure as heck does not guarranty a blue chipper and if every team could throw bloated salaries in the wood chipper that easily, dont u think they would.......again, imho shanny is progressing just how he should......give him some time and see the results......
@Luke_R @Mcost61 @HHT Not a euro but i think connor brown was a good low round pic that nobody wanted
@HHT @Potcy HHT...quit being so positive...........:)
@ConnorCrisp @Jon5200 @ingy56 whatever....she is HOT
@ConnorCrisp @ingy56 agreed.....she is HOT
@In it to Winnik Dont totally agree with that record.....i do feel that when they lose they must lose more often in OT to at least get a point.......it's a killer when u get NOTHING.........
@mcloki @Jon5200 Black ice maybe.....not in the ditch yet :)
Lets c....2 teams did not pass us last nite.....the briuns were already ahead and we have the same point total as Florida (yes, i know they have games in hand)....i, for one(and yes, maybe the only one!) am not showing the white flag just yet.....a few wins and its a new ball game.........ok, let the negative comments follow.......
@PepTalk @Anthony Petrielli If St Louis get bounced out of the playoffs in the 1st round again....the chances of Hitch being available r real good :)
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Randy Carlyle Firing: What Changes Moving Forward?
@penchantforbeingmuppets IMHO.....i think part of the problem with Kessel/Dion is they r not media darlings....the stock answers dont flow freely from them and they r both clearly not comfortable in front of a hoard of microphones and TV camera's.......i'm more then ok with that but deep down i think many let that skew their opinion of them both........
@Luke_R I like those combo's but i dont see them putting Boxak on the 4th line....ever
@Savo43 @MaxwellHowe I like that when people say Kessel is slumping....just because he is not scoring he is still getting points and i couldnt agree more with savo43.........
@Burn_the_Loov_Boats @Jimmie Dorey Well put Jim Dorey....Feschuk is a douche......
3 weeks, 1 day ago on The Randy Carlyle era is over
@wendelsfist I consider it a success if we see 3 of those 6....good list though!
@dlb, just dlb Uh, no....i didnt care for the question or answer......i do agree with u dlb but i think the media in TO(well anywhere) act like they have immunity to scrutiny......yell and boo the players, the media reports(and i use that term loosely) on the players/team....who questions the media and their actions ?
@Great Dane It was said in an earlier post and i agree....Feschuk is a douche !!!!!
@dlb, just dlb @Burtonboy ALSO....an AHL allstar !!!
@dlb, just dlb @Burtonboy Geez i like this kid and they r doing the EXACT right thing by not calling him up.....as sniperstar said, 'let him slow cook"
@MaxwellHowe @Jon5200 @Burtonboy @Lescott ok...maybe, but thats beside the point :)
@Burtonboy @Lescott U do not lack imagination....u have an opinion, i have an opinion......i disagree that Kessel has to b traded.....he may b but i look at a team like the islanders in the early 80's.....Mike Bossy was NOT the team leader and he certainly did not play defense but he had great success.....Kessel can have that kind of success and i believe shanny will surround him with the proper assets....it just takes TIME and people in this market are all about NOW....
@Marlies Man @Burtonboy Marlies Man/Burtonboy.....i couldnt agree more......i do think things r headed in the right direction when we fire a coach while we r in a playoff position......it always surprises me that the WAVE of negativity is so huge.....and not just on this site.....trade kessel (he's only been the 3rd leading scoring in the league over the last 3yrs!!).....comments like this is a wasted season and the old 18 wheeler posts.....hey, WE R IN A PLAYOFF SPOT !!!! Even Ron Wilson said, "u can win with Kessel".....imho, he is not a leader, BUT, all that means to me is get some REAL leadership on this team and he will follow......i believe in shanny and what he is doing and the off ice changes he has made....he has LIVED success in this league and is pointing the Leafs in that direction.......give him some time...he is not responsible for the past 45yrs !!
AP.....we all know u cant 'tamper' but do u think, given shanny's past/present relationship with babcock that he has back channels to him saying "i have a blank cheque waiting for u in Toronto"? I'm para phrasing of course.....
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Randy Carlyle Fired
@philthethrill good 1....i belly laughed at that post!
I guess Toronto isnt the only town that talks about an 18 wheeler.....just watching the shootout loss to carolina and the boston announcer says....the wheels havent fallen off yet, but they are starting to wobble:)
I would also LUV to see staal in a Leaf uni :)
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Sunday Mashup: All aboard the 18 wheeler
@Marlies Man @Wilbur I believe shanny is dying to get babcock in here because he played under him and more importantly....he has won under him
3 weeks, 5 days ago on GDT: Game #40, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m., HNIC)
@Marlies Man @Wilbur @Jon5200 Like i said.....i agree changes need to be made.....and he may be 1..................
@Wilbur @Jon5200 From the comments on this site.....not a leap in logic at all.............
@Wilbur @Jon5200 Look at the 1st comment......shots and possession are his fault....i dont see him laying blame anywhere else?
@Marlies Man @Jon5200 I disagree....again i agree changes need to be made and he may be 1......but to say its all his fault.......sorry, i disagree
Why should RC be gone? ......u mean because they played their 5th game in 7 nites......kadri, holland and lupul all out.....dion couldnt lead this team if he tried....thats all RC's fault? Was it his fault they went 10-1-1 earlier or do u give him ANY credit at all for anything? DLB....u hit the nail on the head with your post....the leafs lose a few and the sky is falling but they go 10-1-1 and all these comments r missing?
I do not have blue colored glasses on....changes r needed....this team needs REAL leadership......but this negative sky is falling attitude that shows through when the leafs lose a few is a joke......and the throwing of the jersey's, i am soooo glad the ACC will ban anyone who does that! Booo, yell etc.... but throwing your jersey is just classless and i think the ones who do it are just looking for attention mommy never gave them when they were young....i never hear of ottawa jersey's thrown on the ice? Buffalo? Philly?
@Hammertownleaffan @Zep2 @Yaknowwhat yup....porno :)
3 weeks, 6 days ago on Game 38 Scoring Chances: Maple Leafs 4 vs. Bruins 3 (SO)
@MaxwellHowe @Jon5200 @Yaknowwhat so it was a money deal....so what? It was a good trade.....despite lupul's history....getting him and gardiner for beauchimen was a good trade as well.....dont downplay good trades just because the leafs use the financial muscle.....
