Bio not provided
If any of these media types (present company excluded) had any brains, they would have realised why Phil doesn't try to lose a lot of weight. He figured something out along time ago that the media trolls haven't. First, his weight doesn't hinder his speed but helps generate inertia to keep him going to where he wants to go. Second, that same weight applies more downforce which helps his stick flex even more. This gives him a deceptively fast, inertia gorged shot. By this point in his career I think he knows what he's doing. The media on the other hand, needs some lessons.

@ProfessorRance @Mcost61 @wiski Daddy I'm hungry! Don't worry son, we'll go have some Leafslunch! Heh heh!

I hope they don't come out guns a blazing to start the preseason or season. That's what got the better of Clarkson last year. They need to chill like Kessel.
Maybe with some of the newer older Leafs on the team now they'll be better music in the locker room.

@wiski Leave it to Paul to do a great job reporting. He asks the right questions that as a fan I'd like to know. MSM take notes!
@DylanJ Put Nylander or Brown on the RW with JVR and Kadri and we're set!

@ Keon Sadly the NHL and Bettman would disapprove.
@Dangle_My_Berries @deedrag Yep! RC or anyone on the team could respond with I don't know but did you see that play Kessel did! They can change the hero from Kessel to anyone with a phrase like that. Make the media focus on that instead. Damn, get a car salesman in there to teach them how to sell it.
I think everyone in the Leafs organization needs to take classes on the art of diverting a conversation, to a different direction. This would give the MSM zero to go on. Always talk positive about your team even when they lose. This would go along way to keeping the stress out. Shanny does this I've noticed. He won't get caught up in the media's game.
MSN is trying to start a fire again. They're bringing up whether it's better to trade Dion now. It never ends.
@DeclanK @Cameron19 @Knights2Leafs Scary!

Since RC admitted that he had way above average goal tending, for the first 3/5 of the season I think he`ll stick to the same game plan. In his mind it seems that the players didn't buy into or follow his ideas. Sadly if we get stellar goal tending again, it'll be hard for Shanny to assess who really is at fault for last years implosion. It still seems there is a power struggle within the club. I hope Shanahan can fix this and show them he's the boss period and there's no room for the blame game here, just results.
@peterbleafs @deedrag @sniperstar The rookies gave me some hope for the future. It's the immediate that's sketchy.

@peterbleafs @sniperstar @ Keon @deedrag Franson might actually turn it around. If you all and MLSE are willing to give RC and Clarkson a chance why not Franson and Reimer?
@sniperstar @deedrag Lupul is damaged and I don't know how much more he can last. Two, three years of good level hockey? I guess what I really mean is I'd feel better if we had someone of high Calibre waiting in the wings.
@sniperstar @deedrag They are for the future but it's nice to have someone in between for now.
@sniperstar @deedrag Getting old on that side. Aside from JVR there's no young blood there.
@ Keon He might be paired with Franson.
We really need to add to the LW. It seems to be lacking and would be easier to fix, than centre right now. Our right wing is crazy good for now and the future. It might be possible to forgo a centre for now, if we shore up LW.
@Cameron19 @deedrag Wow, all we need is Connor McDavid and we could have the best 1st and second lines in the NHL for years. JVR-Kadri-Kessel , Nylander-McDavid-Brown. I got chills just thinking about it.

@Cameron19 Is Nylander LW? I thought he was RW? If he can play LW then we could put Brown on RW.
@ingy56 @deedrag I'm thinking of taking a different approach to the team this year. I'm going to adopt the same attitude i had during those rookie games. One of no pressure if they don't win. Just look at the bright spots.
2 days, 12 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #3: Maple Leafs vs. Penguins
Any news on who will make Preseason from the Rookie games?
@ingy56 @deedrag @sniperstar You just had to confuse me more. LOL!!! Just kidding!
@sniperstar @deedrag But I thought they said we had to go to the latest mash up page to do general talk? Oh well, when in Rome!
@sniperstar @deedrag Geez, this is confusing trying to keep track of where we need to go?
I'm confused is this the mash up for today?
@ProfessorRance @deedrag Agreed nut if we lose one like last year I feel better knowing these rookies can fill the spot.

Bibeau could become a legitimate replacement in goal in the near future. I wonder if Reimer has been concentrating on his movement to get to pucks behind his net? Also wonder if he has been doing extra training to get his glove hand up a level? He seems like the type that would do that just to prove the critics wrong. He's got fire in him.
It would be so great if we could get some of the guys on MLHS hosting the game. Would rather listen to them than most of what's out there.
@Loric76 @MaxwellHowe @mike_84 He's a gold mine when it comes to determination. Damn I'm getting carried away here but would love for Nylander to be our Gretzky and Brown to be our Messier. Oh and Reilly our Coffey!

@MaxwellHowe @mike_84 I'd say top 3!
@Burtonboy Agreed! Their type of play doesn't seem useful in the NHL anymore.

@Jmessih @deedrag @barjv01 Got it.
@barjv01 Brown was good. Another thinking player like Nylander.
@Jmessih @deedrag They were clean too! Impressive.
@Jmessih @deedrag LOL!!!! And then some!
How many here think RC got a hard on watching Loov's hits?
Good goalie programs in Finland.
Isn't Gibson British? I like his blocker side he uses it well.
Carter, Gibson, Brown, Biggs, Loov my favs tonight.
@mcloki I don't want a repeat of last year. We didn't care when they were winning inspite of that stuff but it better not be the norm this year.

I thought they were going to be more serious about embellishments this season? I thought wrong!
I like Gibson. Lots of potential!
Loov is gonna be great in a leafs jersey!!!!!!
5 days, 4 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
We need guys that can redirect infront of the net. BROWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@RandomScrub @deedrag I'm torn though because he was playing with men in the Swedish league last season. I don't want to stop his growth if he is on the verge of taking the next step. Anyways, we'll see what happens when he plays with the regulars in exhibition games. If he can still pull off those moves then he should be seriously considered for the team. He's showing an awareness level that very few have even on the big club. I'm actually excited, maybe to the point of euphoria. This is what happens when a team underperforms for so long, fans start to get crazy in our assessments.

Well, after watching the game it seems Ny is the real deal. He's a gifted play maker. The other players aren't at his level yet. A couple more games and they'll hopefully get used to his passing ability. I think he's NHL ready like Reilly was. Think he would be good with Kadri on the second line. The other teams would have a hard time covering a second line with guys that can stick handle and move like that. Maybe put Lupul on the first line and put JVR on the second with them. Can't wait to see Brown in action. I think he'll surprise everyone. For me in the future I think it'll be a completion between Brown and Nylander for the first spot on the right wing. It would be a dream to have 3 elite right wingers. We would have some major trading power to get that coveted number 1 center if we did.
Does anyone know what happened last night with your site? It wouldn't connect for me. It kept saying there was a problem with the connection from Chicago to your site.
