1 week, 2 days ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@Yaknowwhat I can't prove it or anything but I think the moments are usually after he has a breakaway or sprints down the ice.
@Mind Bomb Is it weird to get a guys jersey who is about 13 days older than you haha
I was in the Gary Roberts comment section for 5 seconds (15 comments) and everyone is worried about Kessel's fitness. I think Kessel is one of those guys that if he alters his body by getting stronger or whatever it would change his game. He has a custom stick the apparently is very whippy and even lupul said he could not use it. Maybe he like the way his body is because of his shot and the it allows him to play a certain way. I am just spit balling here.
I think changing his body in terms of weight or anything could really change his game either for better or worse. Just a thought.
Morning everyone! Man I have watched Moneyball twice and that "Island of Misfit" toys scene for the third time. It is powerful stuff that a game like baseball can be broken down so nicely into to Math and Numbers. However, you can do this with hockey to an extent. It gives us a starting point to find players that fit the price range and system. After the computer gives us players to go acquire, scout the guy and then say I like player A over B because he has a locker room presence. Also, I am not saying this is the end all be all. In my personal opinion the Leafs should have a scout at ever game everywhere trying to compile the most information possible. It is all about information and it is hard to track qualitatively stats for everyone.
In summary just combine scouting and numbers and try to make the winning formula. Also, advanced stats aren't the magic number to a Stanley Cup but used properly can be used to help us get there.
That's one software engineering student's opinion.

It took you guys all of 5 minutes to delete the template :p
2 months, 1 week ago on Steve Spott, Peter Horachek named Maple Leafs’ Assistant coaches
Hey guys I got to make this quick. I thought there would be no news today haha.
I made a google docs spread sheet for fun to allow mlhs user to predict point totals on the next season.
There is a template on the google docs that you will duplicate (right click on the tab and click duplicate) and label it your user name.
Please don't write or modify other people's sheet or we can't have nice things.
Also, predict as many things as you want before the season and we will see who is right.
I hope this works haha.

@ingy56 @Belfour20/JB-45 He should join the facebook group. Gaining a lot of followers!
5 months ago on Morning Mashup
@Belfour20/JB-45 Go net out JB, Reilly, Gards. hard to throw away JVR, Naz.
@Belfour20/JB-45 Randy, Farish and Cronin ;)
@Belfour20/JB-45 But I could be a little bias.
@Belfour20/JB-45 Kessel. Carried the team offensively and played an amazing Olympics. Shame he went cold at the end of the season but played 82 games with a ppg (Oylmpics included).
@Alec Brownscombe @Kessel81 Sorry I did read the article I swear. I just read the advanced stats people being made fun of so I was looking into it and found the website. My bad!
5 months, 1 week ago on Peter DeBoer makes some sense as the Maple Leafs’ next head coach
So i found a website that says NJ has the best shots against total with about 26 per game (Best in the league). The Leafs average 10 more this season at about 36 which is insane because we are last in the NHL. Buffalo does not give up more shots against.
A system that limits shots for us could be huge. Asking Bernie or Reims to make 25 a night should not be a tough workload and could really propel the team somewhere.
@MaxwellHowe @Cameron19 @Hifi75 Don't forget Pearl!
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Poll: Now What?
@loomx @Bruffins MAN BUT WE COULD GET A GUY NAME BJUGSTAD
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Cameron19 @Kessel81 @MaxwellHowe @Bruffins So essentially we should expect a return of Lupul, Kadri, Franson, Reimer and a first of some kinda.
Lots of permutations lol
@bob sacamano @Kessel81 14/15 season he was a constant for a non Stanley cup Ducks.
@Cameron19 @Kessel81 @MaxwellHowe @Bruffins Phaneuf and vanek would be huge adds for that club and maybe keep moulson on the cheap.
Why not send Reims to minny too and give them the goal tending also.
@Cameron19 @MaxwellHowe @Bruffins I think Minny. They would probably make a big push.
@Bruffins A rocket ship to shoot Clarkson into the sun.
@lukethenuke Kassian is 100% responsible for taking out our savoir Dave Bolland.
@bob sacamano With that logic Teemu should have never won a cup.
@peterbleafs @Kessel81 PPP made a good coaching idea was the assistant coach in LA, defensive minded guy who use to coach the Blues. Apparently has a bad PDO which is bad luck. I dont know food for thought.
Is it possible to let Phaneuf pass on the C. I feel he would actually be a lot better without the crazy added pressure on him. Let him led behind the scenes. I agree this team needs a big shake up. 3 huge collapse and nobody accountable. It sucks we gave Nonis a 5 year contract man the Clarkson signing alone should put him in the doghouse.
Anyways who replaces randy?
Is it true Reims asked for a trade? It is apparently on the TML app, this is according to a friend.
6 months ago on Leafs Notebook – March 24
I am so pumped for this game tonight. Hockey Night In Canada on my birthday and got tickets for birthday/Christmas. Going to be rocking the Lupul jersey (last time I wore it they beat the Habs).
Kessel and Lupul will have huge games. I worry a little bit about Bernie. He played okay last couple of Habs games, I would go back to Reims to give him some more confidence and get him back to his playoff form.
GLG 5 -1 Good Guys!

Good Morning everyone but what do you say when you have been up all night? Happy the Leafs won. Big statement taking 4 points in Cali.

@Xxxxxnew Sorry I meant the line's production not Kessel himself if there was any confusion.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Maple Leafs vs. Anaheim Ducks Preview: Into the Valley of…
@Burtonboy Do you think it is sustainable or a crazy year by Kessel? I think it is Kessel. I find that JVR and Bozak disappear if Kessel is not doing well that game.
@Reversethecurse13 @Alec Brownscombe If anything he will create space for other players out there. You have to notice Vanek when he plays.
6 months, 2 weeks ago on Deadline Day Recap: Nope, nothing was doing in Leafland
@djamon @Alec Brownscombe He is getting paid 5.25 mill. Pressure comes from the contract. It is bad when your coach is like he worked out during the Olympic break. I should get As for studying over reading week.
@Jordan29 @Kessel81 No we ran 7 - D, Orr and FML throughout the lineup. Played Ashton 2 minutes. I am saying that it could be a full line effort. Maybe limited minutes for all.
@Jordan29 @Kessel81 I am in shock that this could be the line up tonight. I don't know am I wrong? It scares me that this could be a possibility
So what are the lines for tonight?
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Lupul - Kadri - Kulemin
Raymond - Holland - Clarkson
Ashton - McC - Bodie
Is this real life?
@whalz @Jmessih Switch jay with holland and move bolland to centre jay to wing and holland on the third.
Ray - Holly - Russian GoldFish
Bodie - Boland-McC
Boland said he wont be the same coming back so ease him in.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #60, Leafs 3 vs. Canucks 1
@DeclanK We should thank Burrows for getting Kessel to the next gear. A slashy angry Kessel is a scoring Kessel!
Okay I have something to get the forums going. I am 19 and Mats Sundin was always a household name but I only got crazy into hockey after he and the Leafs parted ways. I watch the highlights on youtube like his 6 game performance and 500 goal that was a hat trick and OT winner. I ask my brother about his greatness and he always says that Kess and Sundin would destroy the league, fast for his size and a dominant puck possession player.
I was wondering if you guys could enlighten me while I study for this midterm.

This is where the hunt for second begins with 2 points. GLG
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Tuesday Mashup: Attack of the Copycat Jerseys
Dion dodges one hit but no one gives him credit for being hounded all game. The Jets have an aggressive forecheck and tried to ware down Phaneuf all game. He took his fair share of abuse.
BTW where have all the Lupul for captain people these days. Oh yeah they only show up once in awhile like Lupul.
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Monday Mashup: Battle of the Floreast
@Denied @Kessel81 @TMLfan_15 He has contributed 6 points and about 12 games of suspensions.
9 months ago on GDT: Coyotes at Maple Leafs (7 p.m., TSN)
@wiski It scares me that we don't continue to get shots. We play best when we play a fast hard nose game. Enough of this sitting back we get out worked down low.
@TMLfan_15 @Denied We need to get to the playoffs. He isnt really doing anything in that department.
@Cameron19 @Kessel81 @LyGuy I am saying these injuries aren't a big deal. The worrying part is that we can't put a complete game on the ice. In the grand scheme of things people wanted Bozak to walk and Bolland is a good depth centre.
@Cameron19 @LyGuy Yeah but not winning in regulation in a long time is actually terrible. We are going to crumble.
@wiski @whalz @deedrag I dont know how people think Lupul would be a good captain. Do not get me wrong I like Lupul but he is extremely injury prone and only brings it when he wants to. Doesn't lead by example, Dion does. He plays great for the majority of the season. One mistake and all hell breaks loose.
Lupul was soft all the Fla game being out worked.
@Jay_Berg The toaster is banged up
@CanuckUKinToronto I bet he is banged up.
