    Your 2019/2020 Toronto Maple Leafs

    Mitchy is on the pk and by far, one of the best stick checkers on the team, let alone thinking the game and being a step ahead on the play. Positionally he's usually good when it comes to getting in lanes and forcing giveaways by the opposition at the blue line, no one on the Leafs does it better than Mitchy. He's a threat whenever he's on the ice, whether it's starting in the O-zone or the d-zone. That's why he's on the pk. He breaks up plays and starts rushes going the other way. So nice try and go fuck yourself.

    Just watched the finale again, and enjoyed it much more upon the 2nd watch. Actually, with the exception of episode 4, and the final 35ish minutes of episode 5, I've found most of this seasons episodes better upon rewatch. On Bran as King, I actually didn't mind this the first time watching. Again it does feel rushed, but they've already hinted a few times at the idea that the best leaders are likely those who don't actually want to rule. Would I have preferred that Jon become King, with his first and last act as a ruler to dismantle the entire system? Yes, but I think the idea that they've taken their first steps toward modernising is probably more realistic. On Bran being the ultimate villain who saw all this coming and let it happen... I get it, because of his line about coming all this way, but I think that was him, basically, being cheeky and playing up his image as the Three-Eyed Raven. In the show, and the books I believe, Greensight has always been more fragmented than looking back at the past, so I doubt he saw all this coming and let it happen. Though that is implied somewhat. I like that the North gets it's independence, though I find it really unbelievable that the heads of the other 6 kingdoms are just fine with this, particularly Yara, as she was promised independence for the Iron Islands by Dany. Speaking of Yara, loved Arya shutting her up with the threat of death. With Drogon burning the Iron Throne, I'm of the mindset that he did this not because he couldn't kill Jon due to the Targaryen blood, but because he knew that the real cause of Dany's death was her obsession with the throne. Dragons in the books are highly intelligent and have a mental link with their Targaryen riders so he would have known this already. John "taking the black" was clearly a ruse for Grey Worm's benefit, and he's actually the new King beyond the wall, which I find quite satisfying, as endings go. Mance Rayder version 2.0. And he gets to be with Ghost again. There was a moment at the end where I did think they were going to drop some hint that the White Walkers were still out there, and the cycle would begin a new, but apparently not. On the whole, I think it was good enough to salvage what could have been a disastrous final season.

    Well, it is over. Everyone got what they wanted. Arya gets to be Sinbad, RBF Chick gets to be queen, Jon gets to be forgotten and left alone beyond the wall and, Bran gets to be King, as he always planned. Evidently.

    and i guess so much for the whole 'the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives' arya peaces out on a ship to sail to the abyss and sansa tells bran to fuck off in kings landing and she's gonna rule the north by herself

    well fuck this shit and lol at grey worm sailing to naath. was waiting for the epilogue of him and the unsullied dying a horribly painful death due to the butterfly disease on naath. i guess the writers forgot about that too. hopefully the books come soon so that we get a respectable buildup to a decent ending

    Well he's probably got one more season to show some significant playoffs improvement. I've come to terms with that and will be mostly quiet except for the odd thing here or there until I'm not forced not to be. But no more damn participation trophies.

    Maybe. We're also ignoring the obvious improvement and placing blame on a Head Coach who has been the most qualified in 2 decades. Everyone needs to settle down.

    Having your worker bees on one side isn't the best idea kinda exposes our right side boards cause Marner and Nylander aren't the best defensive players they would get slaughtered by the RW like Patrick Kane.

    Stevens would have figured out a way to stay within the confines of the rules without giving up physicality. That's what we can say with a fairly significant level of certainly about the greats.

    This. It really was a solid send off, even if it was a bit.... predetermined? I think we all knew when Arya said she wasn't a lady she was just going to go do her own thing. And when Sansa started moving against Dany, we all felt she was getting to either fight for the North independence, or just receive it as good will when it was all said and done. I just dont like how it came to a halt in 20 minutes. Just, 3 episodes, 1 between Dany obliterating the main forces and then scorched earth on KL and 2 to send the series off, to better explain why after talking with Tyrion Jon suddenly felt he had to kill Dany. Let Dany rule for an episode, let Arya flesh out her plan beyond "I'm going west because the maps end there". All in all, I really enjoyed it though. I really like where everyone ended up (I still would have preferred everyone losing, but that's just me)

    Out of all the characters the writers completely forgot about, I missed the hill tribes of the Vale reuniting with Tyrion. They had one episode to give us more Shagga Son of Dolf and they failed. I guess the Lannisters don't always pay their debts.

    Well, that was unsatisfying. Except for Jon going to the real north, that actually feels quite fitting, to me.

    My only issue would have been that noone brought up Jon's lineage at that council meeting. I was half expecting a white walker to show up at the end... Good ending though.

    Well, the battle against the wildlings was pretty fucking tight, to be fair.

    No argument on Rhaegal. That was ridiculous. But the battle of the blackwater completely relied on the wildfire MacGuffin. There was no strategy beyond that. A better example, I would argue, is the battle of the bastards. Jon had the upper hand in every conceivable way until Ramsay introduced Rickon into the mix. After that Jon, understandably, went stupid. But you wouldn't have that episode be any better any other way.

    i couldn't get past how bad the planning was for episode 3. the only reason it wasn't totally predictable was because i would never have thought they would have actually done it that way. 1. why the fuck are the dothraki charging straight into the AOTD, then can't even see them. no one had any idea melissandre was about to show up. they didn't have dragonglass weapons. were they really about to just charge into the dead totally blind with weapons that can't do shit? 2. why are the trebuchets in front of your infantry? they get off one or two shots and then are totally destroyed. 3. why are the trenches so small? they should have been much wider 4. why is anyone lining up to defend outside of the fortified castle at all? the only thing i could come up with was they had no idea what they were doing don't get me wrong, episode 5 had just as many boneheaded events play through. i mean why couldn't arya just fucking throw on a face and sneak into the red keep, where tyrion already knows how to sneak in, and go kill cersei? probably cause it would have just ended the episode in 5 minutes, but still

    almost positive it's going to be jon to kill dany. the question is, how do they do it without drogon burning them alive. i don't think they can kill the dragon. maybe he falls back to jon? maybe he burns dany's body, or the rest of the castle? maybe he just says peace and fucks off? what the fuck does grey worm do? there's no way he'd just be like yeah, she was crazy, who cares. the way the season has gone though i could see him just fucking off to wherever highly doubt jon takes the throne. maybe he fucks off back up to the wall. maybe he's sentenced up to the wall if he kills dany. or maybe he fucks off up north of the wall to chill out with tormund and give ghost that long awaited good boy pat and if bran ends up being king, well, thank god it's the final episode

    See, I felt that worked, within the confines of the episode. It added to the tension of trying to fight a battle against death itself. It's everywhere, and you can't see it until it's right there in front of you.

    I forget which insider it was that mentioned that the Leafs could use more role defined players. We have a lot of skilled individuals but aside from Brown and Hyman for the penalty kill there is no one else who knows exactly what they're role is. I've been impressed with Marchment. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw him step into the lineup next year. Everywhere he's gone (even though he's taken longer to develop than most) he's preformed well. He uses his body and even though not the best skater he's always in the corners digging out pucks. Not to mention he's 6'4 but he's the exact type of player that will be cheap towards the salary cap we can use on the fourth line.

    What's funny to think about is how almost 90% of his hits would result in suspension today. He's literally the reason we have the rules we have now. I wouldn't change it, but I'm glad we've culled his kind of hits.
