@Jmessih @Burtonboy Playoff run
3 days, 18 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Quinn tributes, Lupul and Booth set to return, Holzer recalled
@Burtonboy If we were good consistantly we would be potentially 2 bill - 1.5 bill team.
@Jmessih At first I thought that was good and then it made me sad haha.
@DeclanK @Yaknowwhat Remember Tech Supports job is to get you off the phone. I do it!
@Yaknowwhat IT WAS ME MWHAHAHAHA. I said go 5-4-1/ 10 games and look what they have done.
3 days, 20 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Quinn tributes, Lupul and Booth set to return, Holzer recalled
@JohnyGordon01 Are we allowed to throw jerseys, beer, puffballs (something was thrown at Ph9 at the nas game that almost hit him), abuse players wives on twiiter, abuse players day in and out on twitter, etc...?
1 week ago on Game Review: Game #20, Maple Leafs 5 vs. Lightning 2
@Yaknowwhat I don't mean to be argumentative but kids seeing drunken fans yell things (me included saying things), adult throwing sweaters and acting like idiots is not the best thing either.
@Mo29 He needs a guy that can finish consistently and allow Naz to be the guy on the line.
On to the next one, who care about the leafs not thanking the fans. Detroit is a must win game. We cannot drop 3 against a division rival that could be fighting us for a wild card.
@Omac13 You should read some of draglikepulls tweets about Bozak's backchecking lmao.
1 week, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Sky yet to fall, Leafs vs. Lightning tonight
@MaxwellHowe I know this is kinda not what you had in mind but I always wonder if you could take pieces of another team how much better the leafs would be. Now I am doing this to the Wild. Add Phil, add dion as a second paring d man and maybe throw in nazem to give a bit more centre depth.
Also this is best done wih the blues. Dion and gun as the last pair, Kessel with backes/ stanstny.
Just fun thoughts.
@theacs1966 To be honest, at the game people were chanting it after "Let's Go Raptors" but then they scored two goals. Honestly felt something in the air. Those two goals could have saved randy his job last night.
What would Montreal do in this scenario?
1 week, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #19, Nashville Predators 9, Toronto Maple Leafs 2
@Yaknowwhat My Hawks Diehard friend told me a quote by some good hockey mind that I can't remember but the quote was "Always make a forward a captain because they can change the game." Something along those lines.
I think that was a problem with Dion being captain which is kinda unfair to him. Dying second you need a goal most likely it won't be Dion.
Aside from is regression, Dion leadership on the ice was displayed in the Pitts game when he hit hornquist (sp?). Got us a pp and momentum swing. Unfortunately, unless he scores the goal that is the best he can do but it is very hard to get a big hit every game.
@Yaknowwhat OMG Yahknowwhat Dion has been brutal when I was at the game. I sat right behind bernier/riems and he just looks lost. Like the plays are obvious, I couldn't understand why they couldn't figure it out
The game was pretty jokes. Sad I didn't get to see ten live. However, got to see 6 Nashville goals clear as day. *Grabs the bottle.
I agree with Steve Dangle I need some change, someone today should be gone be it trade or fire.
When Lups comes back:
JVR - Holland - Kess
Lups - Naz - Bozak
Looks kinda balanced.
1 week, 3 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Preds in town tonight
@Cameron19 CAM! You're back!
@deedrag @Yaknowwhat @Kessel81 I miss the good ole days of waffles. I joke with my brother our playoff tradition should be throwing waffles on the ice like the rats in Florida.
1 week, 3 days ago on Monday Mashup: Predators tomorrow
@Yaknowwhat @Kessel81 Just crossing my fingers for the Penguins Leafs and not the Sabre. I hope there is no jersey tossing. I am of the stand point that the logo is sacred. Like I went to fan fest and was disgusted that Ron stepped on the Logo.
@deedrag Good Omen, it was windy and cold!
@Yaknowwhat @Kessel81 Oh yeah you always listen. Would never say that anyone is untouchable other than Crosby. Even if someone offers to Kessel you evaluate it like any other trade and oh boy do I love me some Kessel.
Guys, I am going to the game tonight and haven't seen a Leafs win at home in over a year. So good luck everyone and don't riot too hard :)
@Yaknowwhat I know gardiner has not played the best at all but you might as well keep him. No point selling low on him. Move Bozak should be the priority now! I know we are weak at centre but he is mainly a power play scorer so I think you could cash in on him.
@wendelsfist Maybe it was the plan all along!
1 week, 4 days ago on Monday Mashup: Predators tomorrow
Holtby or Pavelec in fantasy hockey?
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Bruins Wednesday
@Mcost61 Holland line cycled like crazy. Thats how the third goal was scored. It was smart because randy or whoever knew they could obtain the cycle and sneak on kessel.
That was smart play actually. Kudos to whoever did it.
3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #13, Avalanche 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@sniperstar @Kessel81 The blame is on everyone but you might as well take an easy solution. This is a guy who gets paid 2 million a season and will get a nice little package afterwards. In theory, this is how the team should work and Stephan Robidias should be benched every other game with gardiner and Phaneuf and Franson but you can't. There are politics at play so might as well play the game as it is and not live in a delusion.
@MaxwellHowe Was walking around and talking to his family last night as per Markmasters and LEafs PR
Does Randy make the final decision on the Rielly call? Horachek runs the defence and could have wanted Morgan to sit.
In other opinions, it is time to let Randy go and make Harachek interm, not because I want his head (I kinda do) or I think Randy has done an overly bad job but the team constantly comes out flat footed in easy games. This is the message this could spark the team and warn them if you're not going to play you'll be on a plane.
Okay before anyone reads this please note the disclaimer, I haven't played hockey at a high level and I am not any good at the sport.
Now that is out of the way, from the eye test, I do not know the numbers but it looks like Bozak gets stick checked a lot when in the offensive zone on a scoring chance leading to pucks going by him or wiffs. Is this Bozak not being able to fight off the stick check, lift stick, etc.. or is it just a good defensive play every time?
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Thursday Mashup: Game Day in the Mile High City
At my work I test an autocad like program and to test it I have just been trying to build the ACC. Good Times, Good Times.
The hockey rink part, not the building.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Game Review: Game #12, Arizona Coyotes 3 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2
@Komas Taberle @Kessel81 @MikeGartner11 Is it okay if i retire right out of university lmao. If only we could be paid based off comments at MLHS! No one would leave!
3 weeks, 3 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Go West
@MikeGartner11 @Kessel81 Yes and have a set schedule everyday. In university you work on your schedule and make time for things.
I am going to be pissed if I have to stay up for a crappy game of hockey. Man being on your coop is so different from school lmao.
@sniperstar @ninepaces Goal is when a person puts the puck in the net.
@Bruffins Never should of traded for Kessel! *Ducks under table*
@Anthony Petrielli @Kessel81 Ironically enough my first post got Cam into an argument with someone. Good time good time.
Man i hope Cameron comes back, he was honestly the reason I read the comments so much. He has one of the most interesting and fun opinions on the site that causes great debate. Hope this is just a small hiatus.
@newkb Then you send down Panik and risk losing him. I could see booth doing a conditioning stint if chemistry is good. How do those work against the cap?
Okay wasn't carrick - holand - ashton a line in the AHL that dominated in the playoffs? Maybe when lups or booth come back we run that as the forth.
Just think about this we have a lot of players. Waive frats and hopefully regains some form in the A and could be a good call up.
@Omac13 Keep rolling what's working.
@Yan28 I have a Hawks die hard fan and he says Toews just goes out there and wants to win. Period. Does what needs to get done most times.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Game Review: Game 11, Toronto Maple Leafs 3, Chicago Blackhawks 2
Remember what I said! Leafs go 5-4-1 throughout the season and have one or two good 10 game stretch(s) and beat some division rivals and everything is Bueno!
Have a great day everyone! i know it was only Buffalo but I went to bed smiling and that's what matter. See ya guys at lunch.
1 month ago on Game Review: Game #9, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Buffalo Sabres 0
@vinoa @Kessel81 @LeafsGuru I guess proud is the right word I want to use. I don't know how to express it over chat. lol... I am still a newbie at this.Also to Cam, I know it was 1 - 0 but Buffalo has players that could have hurt Ph9 be it clean or dirty, Stewart, mccormick. Not worth the risk.
@LeafsGuru I don't think so. He came back in a nothing game and tried fight and run people. He is almost to dumb to take a game off lmao.
However, there is the flip side that he is a softy and not a leader so there is no winning.
Does anyone else think Bozak could have 20 goals this season? I honestly think that is not an exaggeration, he constantly mishandles Kess passes and gets stick checked on open nets.
Also the cut off for playoffs last year was 93 points. Columbus and Detroit if I am right?
1 month ago on Leafs Notebook – October 28
@Mind Bomb @Mcost61 @Kessel81 I think if you win important games against division rivals and get a few bounces you make the playoffs. Obviously we can never win those four point games but liek every leaf fan it is playoffs or Mcdavid. Plus 93 points is very close to a playoff position.
I am not saying it gives us a contender but it gives us a shot.
The thing I hope for the season is that we go about 5-4-1 every ten games. To save some the brain power that is 88 points over 80 games.
It is about consistency, every Leafs fan hopes to go 82-0-0 but if we stay around .500 for most of are 10 game and a good 10 games (eg. 7-2-1) we can make the playoffs, especially if we win the 2 remaining games.
The key is to not play unsustainable hockey and collapse. It is to have a consistant season.
