From what i hear/read.....Eric Staal is still very much in play for the Leafs..........my buddy is a twitter nut, he follows pretty much reporters from EVERY team......he's been saying the Canes team owner wants payroll cuts and nobody is protected......i'm hoping the Leafs pull the trigger as Staal is one of the best 2 way forwards there is and he might see a resurgence with a new team and maybe a sniper like Kessel might just be the tonic..........

I believe Carlyle is a good coach.....however....there is 1 glaring area where i believe he lags behind some of today's coaches....dont know how many of u watched 24/7 last year leading up to the winter classic but what it showed to me is Carlyle is not willng, or doesnt feel he has to, or doesnt know how to motivate his players?  Some of me says, he shouldnt have to....these are paid professionals they should all prepare themselves and get up for each game.....but.....i saw Babcock and i have read about coaches like Ted Nolan.....they r motivaters...and the reality is some of these players are still boys so the other half of me says yes, motivation is a big part of the job............

This has to be the best site for photo shopped hilarious pic's of kessel and other Leaf related issues......if someone still has it could u post the pic of a Leaf player in a hockey card stance (one of the old uniforms) with mandela's head on it.......hilarious and i didnt save it..........

@wendelsfist  I've always maintained that your window of opportunity for success (ie winning the cup) is shorter when u play the way the Bruins play.....not saying its wrong because hey, they got a cup.....but......they will be in tough to make the playoffs this year and next because the players get older and the nagging injuries get worse and take longer to come back from etc..... it wears on a team and their list of injuries proves it........

@Mind Bomb @Jon5200 Yes MB.....but typically we would have folded to LA in the 2nd of a back to back and typically we would have lost the 3rd game in 4 nites vs the ducks......things are not so typical lately for this team.....that's what tells me they r going to take 2pts tonite :))))

Really hopng for a pissed Ducks team to hammer the habs and for the Leafs to quietly take 2pts from Carolina........teams on long losing streaks always scare me..........important for Leafs to score 1st and put the canes down right away.......

I agree with most that there are things the Leafs need to improve.....shots, defence etc...but lets enjoy this entertaining, 4 line rolling, high scoring, talented, winning team.............i notice alot of the critics/haters say its the same as last year....imho they have many more pluses this year over last starting with Knights2Leafs post.......

further to my post last nite....here is a comment from a reader of the sun below a Leafs article.........

"Why is it when other teams steal 2 points from the Leafs thats okay even though the Leafs played a great game? But when the Leafs steal a couple of points we get all this negative chatter? We got the the 2 points regardless how we played and no one here can accept that. That's the way the ball bounces sometimes. We got the 2 points and that is that."

Only in Toronto can we actually win a game.....be on a good streak.....and have our media be so negative........

I wonder if the Leafs dominated the Wings and lost if the media would have just said of the Wing's.....good team's just have to win some games that way.......BUT.....the Leafs win it and all i hear is negative, negative, negative......the Leafs were lucky....they had NO business winning that game etc...  not 1 article or TV personality gave the Leafs any credit.......yes, i agree, our goalies have stolen 2 games for us lately when we were out chanced.......let me ask the question......how many games has price stole for the habs?  I would say more than 2 but do i see the negative press go their way as it has with the Leafs lately? imho....NO


1 last point.......Bolland -- Five games. No points. Groin injury. Mike Santorelli, anyone?

totally agree with Burtonboy......not recently, but earlier in the season carey price stole a few games for the habs and there certainly wasnt this uproar??  Good team's have their goalie(s) steal a few games....its a must.....lets enjoy the 2pts as it puts us comfortably ahead of boston and also puts us in a good position to start thinking of a higher position.....detroit plays friday so our rematch saturday will b their 3rd game in 4 nites......a great opportunity for another 2pts!

just a comment on the media.......i rarely watch george(an admitted habs fan) on the cbc and now i know why......i did watch tonite....the leafs win and he mentions the nucks are ending a LONG road trip......the habs lose and he mention their 'awful' travel(like no other team in the league has to do it??).......now i know why i dont watch.................

a few thoughts.......Bernier at his best, its what this team needs to succeed........i agree kessel should sit until these multiple injuries heal, our geat depth this year makes this an option.......rolling 4 lines will take this team into the playoffs.......i said at the beginning of the season that the only place montreal beats us is in net (despite Bernier's game tonite), i still believe that and the Leafs will finish ahead of the habs by season's end.......
