2 months, 3 weeks ago on Tim Leiweke on TSN 1050
@TheCanucksnaphook @MaxwellHowe @Great Dane I really hope we don't spend huge on Bolland. I mean, he is a contributor, but not anything over 4/ season
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #78, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Boston Bruins 3
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bennett2Gareth That and a fine, and stipulation that he has to take a slap shot to the face from Chara
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #77, Maple Leafs 3 vs. Flames 2
@TheCanucksnaphook Yeah that was a pretty scary hit, shouldn't be in the game. The only reason I can see him not having an in person hearing is that its his first offence. Still don't agree.
@Zep2 Yeah no one under 10 mins, how about that.
@Yan28 maybe Adrian Kempe

@MaxwellHowe Taking draft day off for sure. Its gonna be a good one

@vinoa @4evrblue The Wiz?
3 months, 4 weeks ago on Toronto Marlies Report: Games 55-57
@Elliot Saccucci Marlies games are good fun. These guys usually play their hardest and are fun to watch. I have gone a few times this year.
@mcloki Funny you should mention "Us in 3 Years good" as i was watching a game from 3 years ago between the leafs and the blues. Just when Hitch was hired and found it erie how much they resembled the leafs.

@Jon5200 @wendelsway1 @Anthony Petrielli Certainly agree. Give'm a chance
@Hammertownleaffan @Bennett2Gareth @CanuckUKinToronto He absolutely is, as he should be. Even talking about it on the radio now. 102.1
@CanuckUKinToronto @Bennett2Gareth He's a blogger....has a site hopeinthebigsmoke.ca
He comes on here a bunch and offers some insight
Not sure if anyone is following The Star dragging Hope_Smoke through the Mud. Saying that he was one of the tweeters attacking April Reimer.....
Not cool on the part of The Star
@TheCanucksnaphook I think he'll come around. I just think he needs to be put somewhere he can succeed. Third line is good for him. Play reliable hockey and basic plays, keep the energy up. etc, etc
4 months ago on Game Review: Game #73, Devils 3 vs. Leafs 2
@deedrag I would personally go with an up and come'r. The coach from the Bing Senaturds is good prospect.
@ingy56 @Bennett2Gareth @dlb eh Thanks
@dlb eh @ingy56 Link?
@ingy56 @TheBlueTruth I 100% agree with this
@Yaknowwhat The team in front kinda shit the bed as well
@MaxwellHowe @Bennett2Gareth I suppose not, but I don't think it is just him, made the same look of frustration during the 5 on 3 last night because of Franson
@MaxwellHowe I agree, I have seen the frustration on Kessel's face every time he misses the net. I
@Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth @B_Leaf Oh, I agree that there are a lot of players with a questionable relationship with Randy.
4 months ago on Game Review: Game #71, Lightning 5 vs. Leafs 3
@B_Leaf @Bennett2Gareth I also believe that the pieces he removed had a lot to do with Carlyle. Wanted to give the coach what he needed to succeed.
@Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth @B_Leaf I kinda feel like he is just trying way too hard to be "the guy" I am hoping for a turn around next year.
@MaxwellHowe @TheCanucksnaphook Yeah against the Bruins...Millar I believe
@B_Leaf I can only fault Nonis for Clarkson. He has made some decent moves otherwise.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Bennett2Gareth I agree with this statement
"They are an 8th-20th club.. that is the reality.. Good enough to be 8th and streaky/clumsy/defensive and bad systems and lack killer instinct to fall of the rails and fall to as low as 20th (not this year but my point is they have that broad of a range). A better coach and 2 upgrades on defense and Bolland back with Bernier in net, and we are a contender"
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bennett2Gareth Ha
I see it going down like this.
1. We squeak into the Playoffs and get booted early
2. Next year we have a terrible season to which Randy is "invited to work somewhere else"
3. We do so bad we win the McDavid sweepstakes.
Whaddaya think about that!
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bennett2Gareth @MaxwellHowe ahh
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bennett2Gareth @MaxwellHowe idiot greek?
@MaxwellHowe @TheCanucksnaphook Looked like a neck injury
@Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth Fair enough
@RickC1983 There is a Coach in the AHL, Luke Richardson. He is the head coach of the Binghamton Senators. Has been selected as the coach for the AHL all star team twice i believe. Might be nice to see some new talent, rather than seeing someone who was fired from another team.
@4evrblue I don't think Randy will get canned until next year if the Leafs have a terrible year. Nothing about Nonis is impulsive
@Burtonboy I have had similar feelings regarding missing the playoffs. I have supported Randy for the entire time he has been here, but now its getting kinda ridiculous. Personal choices alone are annoying, but the same systems that cause being out shot, the excessive dumping the puck in and giving it to the other team.
@Bruffins That's a positive i'd like to focus on. They finally made it work

@MaxwellHowe @Yan28 At the Draft, I see him and Reims gonzo
4 months ago on Game Review: Game #70, Red Wings 3 vs. Leafs 2
@Great Dane @BBirde @Snots + 1
@dlb eh @peterbleafs Third line exile!
@dlb eh I agree fully with that statement. I believe that is what Nonis is planning on doing that sort of thing, we just need relax and they will come when they are ready.
@Burtonboy @wendelsway1 Really hope you're right! Need a big game in a big way! Wooooooo
@MaxwellHowe @Bennett2Gareth The youth can be an integral part of the team, but only if there are used.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Bennett2Gareth Fair enough, I like D'Amigo next year, Ashton is right there in the press box
There are 2 things that are just driving me insane every time I watch a game and I need to vent.
Long outlet passes which 9/10 times result in an icing. Leads to more time in the defensive end - would have thought by now they would realize this doesn't work
Personnel choices - Holland and Ashton CAN contribute to the team. I wish that Randy would just use them more that 2-5 mins per game if they even make the lineup. The stubborn old man syndrome is actually turning me grey!
There, feel better already......GLG
@Belfour20 @Leafs rule The best part is the "tool" with the wrench
4 months, 2 weeks ago on A Good Night of Results & A Brutal Stretch Ahead
Man, Van got a steal of a deal swapping CoHo for Zack "suspended" Kassian eh?
@MaxwellHowe @4evrblue Damn, in Winnipeg for business from Sunday-Wednesday. Gonna miss 2 games
@Gilbey93 Yes Sir - Queen and Broadview
@Burtonboy @Mind Bomb @Bennett2Gareth @Gilbey93 Time, and a bib lol
@Gilbey93 No, but heard great things. I'm a Dangerous Dan's guy myself.Makes you feel amazingly bad about yourself, but too good to resist. lol
Has anyone thought about Eric Knodel coming in after this year and being solid D-man. Guy is huge and it looks like his skating isn't all that bad.

4 months, 2 weeks ago on Game Review: Game #64, Maple Leafs 3 vs. Rangers 2 (OT)
@Bruffins St. Louis
Kadri (16) and Raymond (17) "should" get 20.
@CanuckUKinToronto @Bennett2Gareth @Dangle_My_Berries @vji67 Ok, just being the devils advocate
@CanuckUKinToronto @Bennett2Gareth @Dangle_My_Berries @vji67 But Nonis was a part of that mgmt team no?
@CanuckUKinToronto @Dangle_My_Berries @vji67 Komi?
@vji67 Expensive player does not equal good player Whole team of Scott Gomez.....*shutters*
@dlb eh Then again a lot of people bounce off of Nash
@dlb eh Love to see when Rielly bulks up a bit. Saw him bounce off of Nash a few times.
@mr_hanie If we combine them they we will have a player who makes double the amount of mental lapses.
@Cameron19 @mlclearwater Toronto Bruhawks?
@ingy56 @Snots @Burtonboy I think the "outdoor" game was the last straw. It was bad for Lu for a long time and he dealt with it.
@Gilbey93 Agreed, he's a project.
@Cameron19 @Burtonboy @CanuckUKinToronto @Mind Bomb I agree, he was non existant yesterday, except for a give away. I think he even made the Holland/Raymond line worse......
@CanuckUKinToronto @Marlies Man @Burtonboy excited to see what he does with the Marlies next season. Him and Finn.
@MaxwellHowe @Gilbey93 Was just gonna say that
@Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth @MaxwellHowe I hope you're right, wouldn't wanna see him moved
@MaxwellHowe @Bennett2Gareth As much as I like MacWilliam, not sure he is quite there yet. I can see him making an appearance next year tho.
@MaxwellHowe @Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth I believe its possible yes, but I feel Gleason is a type of player that is needed on the back end. I could see Gardiner or Franson traded before Gleason IMO
@Burtonboy @Bennett2Gareth Absolutely, wouldn't mind him getting a little nastier, a little more Gleason-esqe
@Burtonboy Speaking of Ranger. He hasn't played all that bad lately. (No glaring mistakes) I wouldn't mind him back as a 7th D.
Also, very new here. Long time lurker tho.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on NHL Trade Deadline Day: Is there anything doing in Leafland?
@tmlfan All I read was trade lol
@MikeGartner11 @rustynail Hahahaha
