@Burtonboy I'd rather see their work ethic v. the Lightning as something they're going to stick with.

@Cameron19 @Jay_Berg Wow. I'll take unintentional irony for $1000, Alex.

@Komas Taberle @Cameron19 @Mcost61 @Yaknowwhat Or get brushed off the puck by David Legwand. And on the 5th goal against NSH, Dion went into the boards behind the net to get a puck, and I knew he wouldn't get it and the puck was coming straight out to the slot - unfolded exactly like that. Why does he lose so many puck battles, when he's a pretty big guy?
@mcloki Can't wait. Really happy with my decision to spring for the centre ice package this year.

@dlb Mad @sniperstar Well, it's a problem that seems to infect most of the team - any chance to relax and stop skating, they take it - so frustrating to watch. If Phaneuf stopped being beat to pucks by guys half his size, the Derek Roy goal for example, fans would be much more supportive. It just seems like he's coasting, and that's what drives fans frustration.
Bozak is another one who falls in this category. For one period, he was Hulking it against the Avalanche, and the rest of his career he's back to that spot-picking floater we all know and love. If he gave that Incredible Hulk effort night in, night out, people would have no problem with him as the No. 1 centre. Instead he seems more like a resentful younger brother who's jealous of his older brother's all-world talent, and is passive-aggressively fucking up everything that comes his way out of spite.
@MaxwellHowe @lou19 It'd be interesting if the Leafs went out and got someone the size of the Mountain from Game of Thrones - literally bigger than the net - and said "There, try and score now".
It might be the only way keep pucks out of the net.
@Great Dane Being asked to skate hard every shift is being asked to do too much?
@Gille Ruadh @wendelsfist Or win the first overall in the lottery, and then have to forfeit it because of shady negotiations with a free agent who never wound up playing in Toronto.

@Burtonboy Sounds like the game last night.

@Mind Bomb @DeclanK Coasting around centre ice, looking for a sweet setup from Phil to fuck up.
4 days, 9 hours ago on Tuesday Mashup: Preds in town tonight
I listened to Seigel's interview, and from what I gather Phil was a little short with him after Seigel chased him down for a quote after Phil declined to be interviewed by the media. Seigel just sounds pissy because Phil has a history of blowing off interviews. Whole thing sounds straight out of high school - waah, Phil was mean to me so I'm making it public so everyone knows what a meanie he is. Total tempest in a teapot. I like Seigel, but this is embarassing.

@Xxxxxnew Yeah, hard to blame Rask on those, just perfect shots.

@Mind Bomb @Yan28 Going the wrong way, like a lot of our defense.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Game Review: Game #13, Avalanche 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)
@Yan28 Love Riddick, his tweets are hilarious and always spot on. He should be hired as an ambassador for the team, and also to stand behind Randy to keep him from his more bizarre decisions - Assistant Coach, common sense.
@Claymish Leo doing his Karl Hungis imitation would be gold. Jake can play Lebowski.

@dlb Mad @Darkside Beleafer Powerpuff girls would be an insult to them - Powderpuff Girls better suggests the Leafs' tendency to daintiness.
@DeclanK Showing the Powderpuff Girls on the team how to deal with adversity. I really hope he's seen the Hans & Franz sketches from SNL and wanders around the dressing room going "Hear me now and believe me later, girlymen!", his accent is perfect for it and would absolutely kill his teammates.
@Burtonboy @docmma @Darkside Beleafer @DeclanK @wendelsfist I did notice that this year, Lupes seems to have the monster one-timer back but can't hit the net.
File this under the "And No-one was surprised" heading.
@DeclanK @wendelsfist @docmma That's my issue with Kadri. They talk about his good possession numbers, but whenever I watch him it seems like he's shooting from 40 feet out. Phil doesn't score from there, why does he think he will?
@Xxxxxnew Plus the media circus. If he has a bad game, the MSM's screaming bust! wasted pick! 20 years of Leaf drafting disasters! Game by game dissections like that would do his head in, I'm sure. Nice to have away from the fishbowl for a year.
@Burtonboy @Darkside Beleafer @DeclanK @Axle_Goalie Hmmm, might have to send Felix to straighten him out.
@Burtonboy @DeclanK @Darkside Beleafer @Axle_Goalie Well, in Elliotte Friedman's 30 thoughts blog he said every GM is hot and heavy for defensemen, so maybe there's a chance. I know it's a total pipe dream but wow, would it make a difference to the team.
@Axle_Goalie I always liked Cam's proposed trade: Gardiner to Philly for Couterier and a contract. I doubt PHA would ever do it, but man would it help the Leafs.
@Burtonboy Wow, if the Sabres can Nolan I hope the Leafs think about signing him for next year, after this year's inevitable housecleaning. He'd be a good fit here, both with the team and the media.
@MaxwellHowe @docmma Do you have intangibles? Nonis might sign you for the 4th line.
@TheLoovTrain Hopefully, 29 other teams.
@Anthony Petrielli Randy awkward? I can believe it. Sometimes I wonder if he isn't a little autistic.

@Mcost61 Well, JvR? Although he's not having a great year, keeps getting punked and making bad decisions. Maybe he added 5 lbs of stupid instead of muscle.
@dlb Mad @TheLoovTrain I think they just drug-test Jake and take away his weed. Sometimes he plays like such a pothead out there.
@Bruffins @dlb Mad I wish more people could be as objective as this.
@phaneufoundlander Speaking of biased reffing, I'd like to see Shanahan come out and say the Leafs are going to withhold their portion of revenue-sharing until the shitty, one-sided refereeing of Leaf games is looked at.
The Leafs are a cash cow for the league, it's about time they started flexing some of their financial muscle to deal with some of the crap they have to deal with on the ice.
@Burtonboy All from 40 feet out. But that's just bad puck luck, eh?
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Tuesday Mashup: Go West
@loomx @Burtonboy @Anthony Petrielli Or LA. He really is world-class when it comes to dealing with the media. That's not a criticism, I sincerely admire how well he seems to deal with it all.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Leafs Notebook – November 3
@mcloki @Burtonboy @wiski Agreed. It's getting lawyered out because of the fear of a massive lawsuit. The league would let the players fight it out at centre ice with chains & broken bottles if they thought they'd get more bums in the seats.
It's got nothing to do with improving the game, it's all about avoiding liablity.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Monday Mashup: Winning Ways
@TorontoMapleLeafs @dlb Mad @FRyan Exactly. #Bestofwives
@FRyan Did Phaneuf show up instead? I can see why he's upset.
@dlb Mad He's been playing inspired hockey the last couple of games. That was my biggest beef with Franson - how he seemed to half-ass his way through everything.
I guess the players only meeting had an effect. I imagine the new guys told the old guys that their frat-boy entitlement was no longer acceptable, and if they didn't fix it, there'd be some beatings handed out.
@Yaknowwhat @Mind Bomb @Burtonboy Stand tall, brother man, stand tall!
@Yaknowwhat Just wish Patches had gotten pounded for whatever fruity little thing Cherry was complaining about on Coach's Corner.
@docmma Can't help but laugh when I read Lupul invited her. Noble thing to do, but I'm sure the fact that she looks a little like Jennifer Lawrence didn't hurt.

@ingy56 Clarkson and Frattin are taking all the penalties for him.
@Jmessih Play him with Santo and Leo. They brought back Clarkson's career, so they can bring back anyone's.
3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #10, Toronto Maple Leafs 4, Columbus Blue Jackets 1
@ingy56 @Jmessih Not that I disagree, but you're losing sight of the fact that Burrows is a complete piece of shit. He deserves every bad thing that happens to him.
3 weeks, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Percy recalled, Game Day in Columbus
@ingy56 @Jmessih The one I remember is NYR coming in to play the 2nd of a back to back, and completely obliterating the Leafs. And people wonder why we get frustrated with the team? That happened way too often.
@docmma @Darkside Beleafer Really? Holland's a funny guy to pick as the weakest link, but whatever gets you mouse clicks. Thanks for the update.
@docmma What did he say about Holland?
@Yaknowwhat @phaneufoundlander @Knights2Leafs I'd rather see his confidence crushed like the time he got shelled in an all-star game and sucked for the rest of the season.
@Jmessih Gee, he looks more like the Vulture.
