As long as these new guys can decrease the amount of goals going in our own net then I couldn't care less if they have a bit less of a shooting percentage.
6 days, 10 hours ago on How will Maple Leafs forward moves impact team shooting percentage?
@Burtonboy I hate Simmons but I like seeing that. I've felt like Charron is a doucher. but now that he's working for the leafs I hope I'm proven wrong.
2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs sign William Nylander to three-year entry level contract
@Murph2417 @Rthiffault totally do-able.
1 month, 1 week ago on Leafs sign David Booth to a 1-year, $1.1 million contract
so how much space is left for Gards now?
@steele123 Dealt with them in smaller doses on Georgian Bay. They're totally useless!

@vinoa @Rthiffault hope you're right. I can picture Shanny dropping the gloves with Carlyle on this topic, which would be awesome to watch.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Bargain Shopping: Remaining UFA Forwards
@vinoa except that Carlyle uses the depth guys to squash the young guys icetime.
@LannyandDarryl this is awesome! will you be going back again today or in the next couple of days at all?
@Reether @Bruffins agreed with Bozak there. He's really starting to come into his own. If he can add some gamebreaking ability to his game people might finally agree he's a top liner.
@peterbleafs @silvermaple If he's gone. it will be totally indicative of their record and start. which in that case I wouldn't want him around anyway. This team has to keep improving. Even if its only inches at a time.
@Cameron19 @Ze_theLeafsFan doesnt mean they cant fire him. he'll just get an extra year of pay which is probably all that he really wanted. Coaches demands...
@Ze_theLeafsFan @Rthiffault same here. I just read Pat Burns book written by Rosie DiManno (I know she's a tool but it was actually a great read). and he used to drill his guys really hard wearing them totally out and by three years they stopped listening on each of his teams and he got fired in Mtl, Tor and Bos. Until he realized if he worked with them a little more positively they'd respond which came to NJ when he won his cup. I know Carlyle is NO Pat Burns, but he is also that motivating type of coach. he's no deep player analyst or anyhting. If he can learn better ways to motivate, it might actually work.
I'm curious if Carlyle will turn a new page this season. Now that he clearly knows his job is quite close to the bandsaw he hopefully will reflect and come up with some new ways to get the players motivated. I remember when he just started with the Leafs and he knew what his previous reputation was so he started off trying to be as positive as possible to help motivate the guys and it really worked considering how they played themselves into the playoffs.
@Ze_theLeafsFan @ingy56 his team was absolute garbage that year. not much he could do.
@Anthony Petrielli they've for sure given frattin the vote of confidence. The safe bet about it is his size and skating ability.
something I am liking the sound of is a line of Lupul-Kadri-Frattin. It just feels really balanced with Grit, scoring and skating.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jordan29 If you look close enough at your Rye and Ginger it can look like some waves
1 month, 4 weeks ago on Friday Mashup: As the smoke clears for the Toronto Maple Leafs
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jordan29 just checked myself. yeah I wouldn't be hurt by it at all. Helps push more towards the "Dont mess with us" mantra we're trying to create.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Jordan29 so this is all a sign and trade kind of thing eh (if it goes through) . did he just get a decent deal at least?
@Loric76 who cares. not actual news in my mind.
2 months ago on Petri Kontiola Signs with Maple Leafs on a 1-year, $1.1 million deal
I was just thinking and I feel like Legwand might not be the best idea anymore. Carlyle loves guys like that and I can totally see him overtaking minutes from Kadri and Holland even if he's playing like dirt. I'd like to trade Franson for a Dman or another fwd instead at this point.
@wendelsfist I'm down for it. give it a one or two year shot.
2 months ago on Maple Leafs submit an offer to David Legwand
wonder who we will see fit with Phaneuf. I'm curious how Rielly would look

@whalz @Jordan29 RHD is pretty solid
@ShiftyD hahaha thats awesome
there goes Moore
@Jordan29 missed the boat. Randy Burnt them
@Jmessih hope he likes Waffles!
@Jmessih okey dokes, now we're talking
we lost D'amigo and brought back Frattin. that is a really wet and clammy cold feeling
@rustynail Go Edmonton Marlies!
Iggy and Brodeur. bring em in. what the hell
ShannaBAN any signing
has Nonis had a heart attack?
@Chris Jay well, when you put it that way.
@lukethenuke @DWCMLHS they're all gone
@lukethenuke obviously by this point leadership is not their priority
so we are keeping franson and Reimer?
well looks like I'm cheering for Dallas in the west this year. Jamie Benn = Boss
screw you Gorges
so, basically the only person we can possibly bring in now is Komarov eh.
@Jordan29 theyre going to get hated on in a couple years for not doing so

good luck to him!
Tallon is walking!
talk talk talk... no more talk!
that booing made me happy
@Reether @Loric76 @Black_Hawk waiting until tomorrow early morning
