@Komas Taberle @Burtonboy That's when we took on some salary from Tbay and the league took away the fourth round pick from us.
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Draft Day Two Wrap Up: Gunnarsson for Polak, offensive focus to Leafs’ draftees
@The_Polish_Cannon @wendelsfist @loomx @Komas Taberle And he has grown significantly in the last year, shows he is still going through a growth stage.
@HHT @Roenick72 @Komas Taberle I would of liked Sam Bennett too, just too high of a price to move up, I think it will be a toss up between the two.
@HHT @Komas Taberle Agree. William will be a beauty.
I think Ritchie will be a bust. I didn't get a chance to watch him much as I mostly follow the WHL living in the west but from his highlight tapes his goals were mostly scored because of his strength compared to others he played against. Lots of his shots were off of the wrong foot and when he beat them to the net it was because he took a couple hard strides and then used his strength to fend off. That skill set won't translate to success at the next level. I had the Chance to watch Luke Schenn a lot in Junior and he dominated the exact same way but that could not be carried over when playing others who had the same size.
Are you saying you want Stajan back?
3 months, 3 weeks ago on @SharkClubDundas Game Day: Game #77, Flames at Maple Leafs
I like Clarkson.
Can you imagine if he would of fell on that breakaway.
His balance seems to be off. Leaning to far ahead.
I would say Ross or Rupert would be more of that type of fit.
I think Clarkson will rebound next year. His skill set is important to what we need.
I am excited about verhegge. He has a lot of room to mature, late birthday. 82 points, playing on a terrible and young team. He will be one of the top players in the ohl next year. Book it.
How does Matt Finn not get nominated for top defenceman in the ohl. 2nd in scoring for defence. Plus 57. Captain of the first place team. I don't get it?
Reilly is going to be awesome, what he needs to learn is take your chance, jump in the rush but then if you don't score focus on defence. He gets offence in his mind, gets a chance, then takes unnecessary chances for the rest of the shift.
Thought that would be a line to star the year as Kessel/lupul was suppose to be together according to carlyle.
I am a huge phanuef fan, think he had an excellent 55 games. Very active stick, good defensively. But these last 20 he really has hit a wall.
Last ten games moving his feet.
4 months ago on Shark Club Game Day: Game #72, Canadiens at Maple Leafs
Reimer guess what " time to panic"
I don't think we gave up a lot of quality scoring chances. Lots of giveaways, but otherwise good game.
I don't know we come back mentally for the rest of the season. Well lets see what we are made of.
Yes, I teach our 9 year goalies a one push slide.
Watch him closely, he is a really smart player
What would u use the cap space for this year?
Why do people blame Clarkson for our losses?
Carey still made good saves when he had to.
Reimer is not the only one playing bad, but a #1 goalie needs to win a game even with poor defence when you are playing the playoff drive.
I thought we out played them. We need a save when the defence breaks down. Just one.
No way price changes a game, even with 3 posts. Change goalies for the rest of the year I will say Montreal does not make the playoffs and we do.
Price makes the save and there is no rebound???
What is his record?
Do you see how price plays the puck, changes the play.
Anyone that argues that Reimer is a good fundamental goalie does not know hockey. That is a one push across the crease save. Watch the replay, ask a goalie coach. Please!
I think we will miss the playoffs but I would be okay if we did not totally revamp the team. Look to trade gunnerson, Franson and reimer. 4th of mc clement bodie diamigo. Sign Bolland Mac, Gards, kulie. Clarkson will be better next year. Let either Percy or Granberg come up. Get a Bieksa type and a decent backup goalie and let's see what happens.
Lupul looks like he is going to put this team on his back. He is dominant when he gets that look in his eyes.
I know Reimer could not stop the third, but 10 seconds before that he needed to control the little dump in to the corner. He was scared to touch it, it went around to the Canadians, back of the net. Poor defence, but Reimer is brutal.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Welder24@Hammertownleaffan Sundin was one of the greatest leafs. Flew into a game in Phoenix this year and wore my Sundin 13 Jersey. Could not of been prouder.

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @rockydundas@Roenick72@Bruffins Yeah, look on wikepedia, it was insane.
@rockydundas @Roenick72@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan@Bruffins Exactly. Saskatoon could not support a team in todays market but back then it was possible.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Roenick72@Bruffins No back when Saskatoon first built their new arena their was serious talk of this. Back before high salaries and corporate sponsorship. This is from Wikepedia "It finally found a buyer in a group of investors led by WHA and Edmonton Oilers founder Bill Hunter, who then made plans to move the team to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. However, the NHL was unwilling to lose a market as large as St. Louis and vetoed the deal."
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Roenick72@Bruffins Almost the Saskatoon Blues at one time
@Bruffins @Cameron19@Roenick72 I support Bernier through thick and thin. He may fail but he has a good foundation. Not saying he is our saviour, just like what we have.
@Bruffins @Roenick72 I love this team more than anyone I know. When I was a kid (80's) we would play road hockey in Saskatchewan and everyone would pick who they are. One kid would pick Gretzky, the next Coffey, Fuhr, Messier. It would come to my turn and I would pick Palmeteer, Viave, or Salming. Kids would laugh and say WHO?
@Bruffins @Roenick72 Easy, I don't cheer against them. Why do you have to attack, I was just making a joke.
I know Bruffins has already put it in his day timer to tell me "I told you so"
If Bernier comes back and we miss the playoffs, I will gladly take my lumps. I just feel that our chances to win increase with him in net.
@Bruffins Bernier may have rough patches, but he is a sound goalie. May lose those capabilities over time but I think he is the bet fundamental goalie we have had in a long time.
@Cameron19 @Roenick72@Gozo I yell louder at the TV than anyone I know when the ref blows a call against the leafs. I just want to put blame where we can address it. Players, Coaches, management. Lets right the ship.
@Cameron19 @Roenick72@Gozo I partied with Mike Hasenfratz the day after the Maple Leafs/Coyotes game. Asked him a whole bunch of question at 2am about favorite coach, favorite player, most intimidating coach.... Even gave him grief about a call I did not agree with on Phanuef and he handled all of that with class and dignity. I was really impressed. Would not tip his hat on anyone he liked or respected.
