  2. 2017/2018 Out of Town GDT

    Oilers are a very bad team this year. McDavid looks futuristic compared to rest of the team that looks like they are skating in mud. GJ Chiarelli. I especially loved that trade for waiver fodder Reinhart.
  3. He's been working at getting back to the Gards of last year. You can see it in his game. As a coach you have to draw a fine line because you don't want to stifle his creativity but you don't want to open the stable and let him run amok creating chaos either.
  4. Definitely not a ground breaking discovery. But Good to know it's being looked at somewhere.
  5. I did after I replied.
  6. Its no secret that I'm no fan of Gardiner's game and decision making, but I've really been trying not to pounce on him at every opportunity this year. It amazes and disappoints me how many times he has control of the puck with limited to no pressure and whether directly or indirectly, the puck gets turned over to the other team. Its really hard to watch this guy continue to be a leaf. That's it... Ill go back to biting my tongue for a couple more months.

    Scrooge McDuck.😂 We'll buy the grandkids and kids some clothes. We don't bother with ourselves anymore but may buy a fake tree to please the littles.

    This whole net neutrality thing is pretty scary. I can't imagine what the fuck would happen if it were to reach us...
  13. Cellphone thoughts...

    Ordered me a 5T.
  14. Interesting. I've always gotten my tickets off stubhub, never had any issues with them. Even once when I didn't get my electronic tickets, I called them the day of and they found me tickets.
  15. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/nov/10/stubhub-and-viagogo-offices-raided-in-ticket-touting-investigation Investigators have raided the offices of ticket resale companies StubHub and Viagogo as part of a probe into suspected breaches of consumer law in the “secondary ticketing” industry, the Guardian has learned. Officials from the Competition and Markets Authority seized information about the companies’ relationship with prominent ticket touts, who harvest tickets for in-demand events and sell them via the two sites.

    A friend once said to me. Christmas is what you make of it. The older i get, the more i agree with that statement. I used to work with a couple, they bitched about Christmas. Then, about two weeks later, they put $3,500 worth of Christmas gifts on their credit card. If i thought i had to spend even half of that every Christmas, i would hate it too.

    What I'm buying: stuff for myself, gift cards, a Yankees hat (my sister likes them), clothes. What I'm getting: money, gift cards, and a Matthews jersey.

    The traditional method of making coffee is the way to go.
  19. Toronto Marlies Thread

    https://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2017/11/21/leafs-unique-development-program-paying-dividends-for-marlies-marchment.html Spending the bulk of last season as a spectator wasn’t easy for Mason Marchment, but the development program put in place by the Maple Leafs has paid off for the undrafted forward. Marchment is third in scoring for the Toronto Marlies with five goals and six assists, and is 10th amongst American Hockey League rookies in points, despite playing in just 12 of 17 games this season. Two weeks ago the AHL recognized Marchment as its player of the week after the 22-year-old scored a goal and added six assists in three games.

If he can get that shot off, find open ice, and if we can play with the puck, we’re able to be productive.” Marchment dressed in just 44 games last season split between the Marlies and the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears. The Uxbridge, Ont., native spent the rest of the season working with Leafs skating development consultant Barb Underhill and skill development consultant Mike Ellis. “You see great potential, but (he) just wasn’t in the place where we felt he could contribute every single day,” said Marlies coach Sheldon Keefe. “We just tried to have a little bit of a bigger picture. We felt he needed to take care of his body first and foremost. “I think development is individual. You need to cater the program for what they need whether it’s skating, strength what have you. In Mason’s case, we thought it was a little bit of everything.” Marchment, the son of former NHL defenceman Bryan Marchment, has always been a late bloomer. He didn’t start playing minor hockey until the age of eight, he joined the Tier II Cobourg Cougars at 18 and was already 19 by the time he made the jump to the OHL with the Erie Otters. Following his second OHL season, Marchment signed an amateur tryout with the Marlies to conclude the 2015-16 season. He then signed an AHL contract for the 2016-17 season and agreed to an extension for 2017-18. Though it was difficult at the time, Marchment now has better appreciation for the college-like approach the organization took with his development last season. “It wasn’t always easy, but I just kind of stuck with it and kept on working hard and obviously it paid off,” said Marchment. The six-foot-four, 200-pound forward’s dedication to improving his game earned him a longer look from the Maple Leafs during training camp in September as he survived the first round of cuts. While serving a recent two-game suspension for cross-checking, Marchment spent extra time after practice working with Underhill as he continues to improve his skating. “I’ve been working with her for two years. It’s been a big improvement,” he said. “Just edge work and stuff like that. Overall she’s definitely helped my all-round game a lot. Just being more stable on my feet probably. Working on edges and speed out of the gate. “Just being stronger on one foot at all times, just being in a good position at all times and harder to knock off the puck.” Marchment is one of just three players currently on the Marlies roster without an NHL contract. As he continues to put in the work this season, he hopes the Leafs will come knocking with that entry-level deal.
  20. Christmas Presents (Giving and Receiving)

    I used to not drink coffee, but have a Keurig because everyone else does and my parents like theirs. So they can have coffee when they come. Now that I dunno coffee, I still don't touch that thing. And my parents are all like "but you have the machine, we love that coffee." That's what I'm talking about, that coffee is shit and the reason I thought I hated coffee. Get me a grinder and a French press. Hell, even an espresso machine because sometimes I'm a real fancy boy and want an Americano. But don't, ffs, give me a Keurig. The hot chocolate tastes like dirty water too.
  21. The Alphabet Thread

    Lucky for me I'm always sobbing... why would they take a goal away from Matthews?
  22. Questions Only?

    What other goose is there?
  23. I feel like if that happened to Andersen, we'd be calling for goaltender interference. The overhead angle is the killer. From the side, he looks like he has hours to recover (and did), from above you can see he didn't have the time (and didn't). While I think Matthews is scoring regardless, that's not how you can interpret the rule. Hyman also did little to avoid getting into the crease and his stick was the problem, not that he was there. If they'd let it stand, you wouldn't hear me complain. But I certainly cannot call it unreasonable they didn't.
