15 hours, 38 minutes ago on Friday Mashup: Chara out 4-6 weeks, Leafs play Boston Saturday
During the next CBA they should get rid of the NTC's. It binds a teams hands too much and it might actually make players try a bit more instead of coasting. You're not giving a full effort? No problem, off to the PEG you go!!!!!!

@Fish Head @deedrag @Yaknowwhat If it's hate related then it should be shut down unless it's about the Habs!!!!!!!!!!! :)

@Cameron19 @Yaknowwhat But no where in their law does it say they are supposed to Cam. They are supposed to leave judgement to their god as are the people that follow the Jewish faith. I am not quite sure about the Muslim faith. They actually have a call to arms against anyone who can not be converted.
@Yaknowwhat They need to somehow stop the access to these extremist websites. If this is a war like they preach against all infidels, then shut them down. Information is the key to everything. Cut it off and they have nothing.
@docmma @Cameron19 @deedrag That's the sad irony.
@Cameron19 @deedrag I think CSIS has told the government in the past they would be targeted but they ignored it sadly. Places like UK, Spain, France and other allies have all felt it to a certain degree. Makes you wonder if our Government has any wisdom at all in these types of matters.
@Cameron19 @deedrag I'm just thinking I don't like taking the choice away. What's the term lawyers love to use "Due diligence" Does are government know our soldiers are a target? Yes? Then protect them just like they protect all your goodies.

@Cameron19 @deedrag The guy didn't have a sidearm to shoot the guy coming at him with a machete. So if he is a target because of his job then he should have the right to protect himself with means that he is trained in to use.
@Cameron19 @deedrag Read the comment again Cam I said UK!!!!! It was grizzly.
@docmma @Cameron19 @deedrag Wouldn't surprise me.
@Cameron19 @deedrag Better than standing there with nothing. Do you remember the incident in the UK where the guy was beheaded?
I know a lot people won't like the idea of soldiers being allowed to carry firearms but I feel they've earned that right since they protect my freedom. The government is seriously going to have to consider this from now on.

@.JVR. @deedrag Man WTF is wrong with this country?
2 days, 15 hours ago on Game Review: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs 5 vs. New York Islanders 2
WTF?????? Another one?
Was there a shooting in OTTAWA?????
Thanks to all that contributed in the game review. Nice analysis.
Shit! I think RC told them to just hang on to the lead. Let the hounds loose, don't hold them back.
3 days, 7 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
12 out of 16 faceoff wins that period. :)
Notice the difference tonight? Detroit choked the Leafs shooting lanes. The Isles have left them open.
3 days, 8 hours ago on GDT: Game #7, Toronto Maple Leafs at New York Islanders (7 p.m., TSN4)
And people were complaining about his wimpy stick. LOL!!!!!!!
@Mitch92 But he knew what to do with it!
@In it to Winnik He paniked a bit there.
I'm sick to my stomach! Think it was dinner but those refs sure aren't helping.
Aside from the new additions there's not too much toughness on this team from it's players.
The refereeing lately is the salt on the wound for us. It'll be next to impossible to climb out of this one.
Kill that Islander bastard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until this club learns to adapt they will not succeed. They run this business like a good old boys club. This might of worked barely in the 60's but no way you can run a business that way today or a sports enterprise. Things move and change so fast now you can't afford to be a one hit wonder and live off the avails.

@Burtonboy @deedrag I think Shanny has given the green light to start rebuilding. Management is his first priority.
3 days, 17 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Taking on the toughs
Perhaps this is a prelude to Nonis getting sacked in the future also?
I've come to the conclusion, that aside from a few players on this team, we have no real depth. The biggest problem with the depth, is not having the right kind that we need. We perceive that depth to be many things but fail to define what we real need from that depth. Adaptability is what's missing. From coaching, to players (of course not all are this way) they lack adaptability. When something doesn't work, in order to survive, you have to willing to change/adapt. We all can see the ones that are willing to adapt. These and only these types of people should be brought in by management. What good is a sniper if your target is up close to you? What good is speed with a wall in your way? Adapting is the key to success. People have been using this simple idea forever. If we want a team with real depth we need adaptability. Crap, even the guy we didn't expect much from "Clarkson" has adapted!!!!
@TheLoovTrain @deedrag Good suggestion.

Connor McDavid : 25 points after 9 games. I really covet this guy for the Leafs!!!!!!!!!! He's on a pace to hit (dare I say it?) 200 points! You won't get a chance like this for maybe 15 years or more. Get it done. Lock up some first picks right now in case we end up in 13th or something. Always have a back up plan!
@Anthony Petrielli @Yan28 Try Holland on the first line. Move Kadri to the 3rd, put Santorelli on the 4th and Bozak on the 2nd. Since they are experimenting, try every option now to see what we really have. The 4th will benefit with Santorelli.

@TheLoovTrain Like the pairings. Maybe switch the 1st pairing with the 3rd pairing?
WTF!!!! PK scored that goal, that way?????????????? Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse I have to see that.
5 days, 6 hours ago on Sunday Mashup: Not All Bad
@Jay_Berg We haven't been lucky so far.
@Jay_Berg They'll probably go big risk and get (if you can believe this) Edmonton's garbage.
@Mitch92 @Jay_Berg Shit we'd give lots to have Mason's goal production right now.
@whalz @Alec Brownscombe @Jay_Berg I'm curious to see what Komarov and Yakupov would be like on the same line?
@whalz @deedrag Seems like it from what's being tossed around the rumour mill.
@whalz I don't know what they have they could help us. Their players are smaller in general. We need some bigger guys for certain positions. Not guys that get bumped off the puck with minimal effort from the opposing team. If they can play like Kozun then I'm for it.
I was thinking it's too bad some things in hockey have changed. Can you imagine sucking this bad and having to go work a regular job like they used to before? Can you imagine all the hate you'd get at work. Wow, they really don't know how lucky they are, playing in the modern era.
Damn it, if we could trade for some of Philly's players that are tough, for some of our finesse players, I think both teams would benefit.
5 days, 18 hours ago on Game Review: Game #6, Red Wings 1 vs. Maple Leafs 0 (OT)
@mike_84 If it brings in McDavid, both!
@Cameron19 Any word on how Kane's doing?
@mike_84 @TorontoMapleLeafs Phil looks really frustrated. Same with JVR. But don't know if it's attitude related?
Here's a real mind fuck? Wasn't our AHL team better than Detroit's AHL team last year? If Detroit is basically playing an AHL team why the fuck don't we have more AHL players in the line up to beat them? RC! That's why!!!!!!!!!!!!
@MaxwellHowe It seems that way from their play. They are not reading each other or the plays well except for Komarov, Santa, Clarkson, Lupul, Rielly, Bernier, Reimer, Percy, and Kozun (hope he gets well soon!).
