When in doubt...run!
@Dogger Yes I can.

@Burtonboy Ok, so canning Carlyle is the only move then?
3 months, 1 week ago on Game Review: Game #19, Nashville Predators 9, Toronto Maple Leafs 2
@Chris Jay @Cosmos1973 If the toasters were removed from the practice facility, that would be a dead giveaway.
Do we think Nonis will fire Carlyle, is there any indication of this today...from practice?
@Burtonboy @Cosmos1973 No worries....but its no different than 'buddy'....when people use dude or buddy, they generally are not your dude or buddy. Obviously this topic has been hashed out....so onwards we go.
@Burtonboy @Cosmos1973 When you use Dude in that context, it is not positive.
@Burtonboy @Cosmos1973 Why? Who cares? People want to go, let them. Censoring this is silly, and would be a reason folks would leave. Don't play into them.
@Burtonboy @Cosmos1973 I had never seen that PENDING before?
When I named the other site, I had a PENDING...are we not allowed to name it?
Well, after that debacle, I think its time to turn on the CW, and watch something to cheer me up!
3 months, 1 week ago on GDT: Game #19, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Nashville Predators (7:30 p.m., TSN4)
Ha, ha...the TSN talking-heads are speachless! Bobby M. says he is confused as to what the Leafs can do! This is not good.
Herr O'Neill is disgusted by the Leafs effort.
Watching the high-lights (Preds high-lights), and there is nothing more awe-inspiring than watching Derek Roy out-muscle Phanuef to score. Derek Roy out-muscled Dion Phaneuf to score. Horrible....absofuckinglutly horrible.
Fire him in the presser!
Reimer came on to relieve Bernier....trust me, Bernier is relieved!
What happened to Heeter!
Pulling Bernier worked?
@Canuck_1974 They have had more ice-time than our 4th line though.
@Dangle_My_Berries That was Nystrom.
Nobody asks how you lost...right?
@Dangle_My_Berries @Marlies Man Jonas Seigel.
Where's Richard Panik?
Gaustad fights like he plays.....sssssllllloooooooowwwwwwlllllyyyyy.
Oh, thank God...Clarkson is firing up the team!
@wiski He was +14 about two weeks ago!
Send Bernier out to play defense, see if he thinks its so easy!
Did they pull Rinne, and go with an empty net?
Went upstairs to say good night to my kids...come back down....whoa, don't call it a comeback!
I really think the first sign of a senile Carlyle was the Kostka/Holzer pairing with Phaneuf on your 1D...when you expect to be a playoff team. How do you do that?
Who would have thought losing Carter Ashton would do this to the Leafs, huh?
@MaxwellHowe ...have to go for 2 though.
@Forever17 Well, most teams, when down like this, don't exactly play like champions...
Can teams pull their coach during a game?
So, when Bernier doesn't resign with the Leafs, and we are back to Reimer as our number 1...that will be funny!
@Luke_R @Cosmos1973 @Jay_Berg Would like to be...but just my observations...and I know I am off base, but watching Tavares, he was so impressive, and controlled the game with his skill....stood out every night. I have not felt the same, and I have watched Erie quite a bit.
@Jay_Berg I have seen McDavid a number of times the past two years, and I was more impressed with Tavares, and Lindros (underagers I have seen in person) than I have ever been with McDavid. Now, obviously, he is good, but I have not really seen what it's all about yet? Connor Brown looked better half the time I saw Erie last year!
@Jay_Berg No, there is this Matthews kid, an American who is missing this draft by 3 days, people think he might be every bit as good as McDavid and Eichel!
When the Leaf's backs are against the wall, they scratch, and claw....to hide behind each other!
...and I think I just saw Jeff O'Neill in Fury last night, is he acting now....as a Nazi Officer?
Aaron Ward's suit is sooo bloody horrible!
@hometeem @MaxwellHowe They play 100 games this season?
@Leafs_17 @Cosmos1973 Oh shit, I love that!
Mights as well get blown out...media will erupt like a volcano, and maybe Randy will be close to the end of the plank!
Crack open a crisp Becks...he's got two!
@Leafs_17 @Cosmos1973 I think its more logical than Randy employing his systems continually with these results.
A theory I have been mulling about the past two seasons...I believe the Leafs have too many stupid uniform numbers! I mean, who has a 42 and 43 as their top centres? A 71, a 51? Christ, a 45 as a goalie? Tack on a 46, a 50, 37, 39, and a 67! C'mon guys, if you ain't Phil Kessel, pick a bloody real hockey number!
When a new coach is hired, can we avoid assholes (Wilson and Carlyle), and try and find a 'communicator' with a successful resume, and a coaching system that works with the type of game and players we have?
@sniperstar @Dangle_My_Berries I don't blame the players, it's always the coaching...a change, and you will see them pick it up...just the change. They may hate playing for him, and I am willing to bet they do not like it right now.
What has happened to Phaneuf, he is SOOO bad this year?
