  1. I agree with everything you've said here....to address the part in bold : Wouldn't a guy like Wayne Simmons have helped ? The game has changed...in the regular season. But playoff hockey, is still playoff hockey. We don't need a goon. But we could use some toughness, some grit, and perhaps even some forwards who know that a fore check usually involves some sort of contact.
  2. Well, my apologies sir..... ...you might want to use the button marked as "Quote" so people will know who/what you are referring too... ...but again, my apologies.
  3. Yes it was unfortunate....but hanging this playoff loss on him,...or even last year's playoff loss is just bullshit. Where is Matthews? What about his former Swedish linemate, the $7 million man? Other than Anderson...Kadri was the only one playing the other night. If the team loses now, you can't go say it's because of a player who's not even playing....that's bullshit. Did I say anything about 'the code'? All I said was that hanging the loss on Kadri is complete BS. Go back and read what I wrote....pretty sure english is your first language, cause hockey knowledge isn't your strength. I have no doubt Kadri gets traded.....good way for Dubas to lay the blame where it doesn't belong. With or without Kadri, this team was not going to beat the Bruins. The team is softer than butter. It's unfortunate that Kadri lost it....but at the same time, I'm proud of him for sticking up for his teammate (Marleau)....and for the rest of his teammates who were getting ass raped all night. You sound like every Leaf fan that hated Darcy Tucker....but loved him when he played for the Leafs. Guess what, Kadri will go to another team....we won't get much for him, and that team will love him....he may even still lose control sticking up for his teammates on his new team....while we will continue to watch as our team gets raped once again in the playoffs because the team is built for the regular season. Funny thing...Brad Marchand crosschecked a guy to the face, while the guy was down on the ice....he got a $5000 fine. Don't tell me there isn't a double standard in the NHL when it comes to handing out punishment.
  4. The issue I have with the line matching is he’s too worried about it. They even mentioned it during the intermission....it takes away any momentum from the players when they have to get off the ice because the Bruins have Marchand/Bergeron on....who cares?....they might be the best line for the B’s, but we have (or had) three that could match them. I don’t know ....I’m still pissed off at that fiasco last night.
  5. I have a theory about this .... during the regular season, the players get paid...therefore, it is in the interest of everyone to promote safety, harmony, figure skating etc. During the playoffs, the revenues are all for the owners....so fuck safety, harmony, figure skating etc and get as close to killing your opponent as possible because: playoffs. It’s just a theory...hasn’t been peer reviewed yet
  6. Well now you’ll get to see what ‘most of the Toronto roster’ does without the only guy who plays with any passion. You can hate on Kadri all you want, but any team...including the Bruins...would love to have him. Where was ‘most of the Toronto roster’ last night anyways? I mean, I saw Matthews...he didn’t do anything...Nylander was running away from his, and anyone else’s, shadow (but that’s not unusual)....Tavares and Marner weren’t having a great night....Johnsson and Kapanen are still trying to figure out how to use a gps to find the net...and the softest fourth line ever sucked ass. Since you want to hang the loss on Kadri’s neck, that’s fine..your opinion...but you’d be dead wrong. This team is softer than warm butter...Boston proved it again last night....that’s on the accountant masquerading as an NHL GM. But don’t worry, I’m sure he’ll trade Kadri (blame him, via trade) and find some nice, fast, soft as butter player to replace him. Can’t wait to watch the regular season next year....but I may just skip the playoffs...what’s the point if you already know how it will end? I find it interesting that you earlier in this thread asked about guys like Mike Brown, Matt Frattin etc. I doubt it was because of how highly skilled they are...maybe because they are tough?
  7. Definitely not the only one. Other than Anderson, Kadri was the only one who played yesterday. This team is not built for playoff hockey. You can say what you want about ‘the League has changed, they want more skating’ blah, blah, blah.....because that’s what that is....just blah, blah, blah. I know there will be some who try to hang this playoff loss (yes, they will lose) on Kadri’s neck, but the truth of the matter is you hang this on Dubas. This team is soft like butter....and he did nothing to help that. He’s a glorified accountant, not a hockey guy....should have made Hunter the GM, he made all those picks we all love so much. No way does Hunter sign Nylander....he’d have let him sit....and to be honest, $7 million for a player that’s afraid of his own shadow....no thanks. Where was Matthews....the future captain????......seriously, he’s not captain material....great player, but invisible last night. Johnsson.....ummmm, I’m not sure why he’s on the first line. Kapanen is good, if only he knew how to hit the net with his shot he’d be great. Marner, Tavares, Hyman were not exactly on last night.....but neither was the team. WTF is our fourth line for? Freddy Goathas got to be the softest, big hockey player I’ve ever seen. Moore was I don’t know. And Connor Brown is useless. Play Ennis.....at least he’s a threat to score. And Babcock.....I’m probably his biggest supporter....stop with the line matching bullshit and let the boys play. And for god sake, come out and say something about that fucking disgraceful display by the refs....they should never be allowed to ref another Leafs game again. It’s a process....right now we are where the Capitals were in the early years with Ovechkin....lost of dazzle dazzle in the regular season...no balls in the playoffs. Am I angry.... you better believe it....the game has changed during the regular season, but in the playoffs it’s back to the hard hitting, no bullshit penalties called like the regular season....but our management doesn’t see that. This team needs players that will grind, are willing to hit, and take a hit. Kadri cannot be the only one.
  8. Bruins in 4 Because the Leafs always fuck up any predictions I make about them!!! GO LEAFS GO!
  9. I hope you're right, because it is a small sample size....one game out of 20 so far, 1 goal, 6 assists (3 last night) playing on the third line for approx.$7million per. I don't hide that I'm not his fan and I think he should be traded for a d-man that we NEED, but he did play well last night.....I just don't think he will be anything more than what we've seen in the past two seasons, not that that is bad or anything, but when compared to Marner or Matthews.....Nylander doesn't compare....he doesn't even compare to Pasternak (but got his money)
  10. Funny thing about those billionaires: 1. Without them you don’t have a league...they made their billions somewhere else, owning an NHL team for them is a hobby (like collecting hockey cards) 2. The cap has earned the players more money than ever before....Nylander doesn’t get anywhere near $7 million in a non-cap world. 3. Not true. First off they really can’t .....not with the Leafs anyway as the billionaires are just two faceless corporations. But when we had a face to the owners, there was as much scorn for them as there was for the stupid decisions the GM and management were making at the time. As for Nylander.....How long do we give him a pass before we are allowed to question his performance? We couldn’t criticize when he was holding out off the ice, now he’s holding out on the ice...so when is it okay to question the third line winger?
  11. Mitch Marner......the boy, the man, the myth, the legend.
  12. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree....his father was the same. I find it rather impressive that all the experts, the prognosticators, the insiders, have nothing....zero....zilch....and they themselves admit that when they put out their "insider information". I think Dubas has done a great job of keeping things under wraps....and kudos to Nylander's camp for doing the same. Fans can speculate, and have, about what Nylander should get based on comparables.....I believe the number was between $6-$7million per....if those numbers are accurate (and I believe they are...@Armster is pretty good with numbers) then why hasn't Nylander signed yet? I don't think he can sign now...it's too late....and I doubt that money number would still be on the table anyway, there was probably a deadline for him to sign at that number, and it has passed.....the new number, is probably one that Willie doesn't want to sign (out of pride) and I can't blame him, he's a big boy, and can make his own decisions....and if that is also true, then he is a greedy asshole who doesn't care about winning, but only wants money. Hope he enjoys his NHL days toiling away for some Club that won't be making the playoffs anytime soon.
  13. It will never be over. 1. If he signs....the media will be all over it. Why did you wait to sign? Length of the deal? Will he be traded before the season ends or after? 2. If he doesn't sign...the media will be all over it. Why didn't he sign? What were the offers? Will the Leafs trade him in the off season? What will the Leafs get in return? In a weird sort of way, looking at this team's history, this is the sort of "problem" Leafs fans have been dying to have...lol.
  14. Willie sings this to Leaf fans after he : 1.signs a deal 2. fires his agent 3. Tells his Dad to sit down and shut up cause he's a man now. This song can also be sung to Leaf fans by Willie if he doesn't sign and sits out the season
  15. It's a bit old, but I thought worth sharing.... https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/nhl/where-in-the-world-is-william-nylander/vi-BBQh9iS
