  1. Sorry Morri. For that I apologize.
  2. lmao. ya, lets bet into that excuse. I knew I should of picked the yotes on my proline.
  3. Quiet down That type of thinking leads to dinosaur mode. lol
  4. The team should be able to turn that around. At least fight for wins and not just give up. Stay hungry.
  5. We`re so pretty We needz to grind some dirty balls|
  6. Seen mentions of them but never a solid proposal. If I missed a few well it just seems few and far between. Oooh,..and yes, some balls would turn this game around. Balls swing and so do momentums.
  7. Right on, lucky bounce but cool> we need that! We need something! Nt!
  8. I dunno, sometimes it takes balls to grow balls, and our team is still going through pubes. And they would make a difference. And,... hate to say it, but,... at least I usually have the balls to actually come up with trades that return both ways rather than just saying cliche shit of wants without actually mentioning a trade of players, and even though you stepped down from mentioning Slavin and wanting him who we know won't be traded, sometimes you yourself should come up with trades and wants mentioning the actual scenario rather than just plugging what you think works best. An example is tonight and you just being satisfied with re-shuffling. We need some balls.
  9. And this is why I want some new cards for our deck. Re-shuffling is not working.
  10. Wendel is not impressed.
  11. BTW,..Wendel turned 5 today, so we expect some good hockey!
  12. lol, true, maybe one boo then
  13. Would not be surprised to see Matthews get booed tonight just for signing a contract. Play all out and,.......Go Leafs GO!
  14. Which one won? A:You will have to stay tuned in order to find out. But what about Valentines Day? How will I ever be able to part from the heart that expects my full attention today? Will I be able to even stay up, it's a late game? Should you tell your better half that you have prepared an evening filled with Fleurs knowing full well you are talking about the Fleury vrs Andersen matchup? No matter what gamble you take tonight, the best excuse really is,........sorry babe I thought watching the game tonight was your Valentine's day present to me. "LIVE IT IS THE LONG AWAITED VALENTINES MATCHUP FEATURING THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS AND THE VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS." GAME DAY: Golden Knights try to end home skid vs. Maple Leafs The Golden Knights look to snap a four-game home losing streak Thursday when they play the Toronto Maple Leafs on Valentine’s Day at T-Mobile Arena. Opening faceoff is 7 p.m., and the game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain. “They’re a skilled and talented hockey team and they can score a lot of goals on your if you don’t play the right way,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “They’re a high-flying team and you’ve got to be aware, and you’ve got to manage the puck real well.” The Knights (31-23-4, 66 points) have not won at home since Jan. 19 and were called out by Gallant for playing a “soft game” in their 5-2 loss to Arizona on Tuesday. Gallant said his starting goaltender would be a game-time decision, but Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start as he chases his 30th victory. Fleury is 2-3 with a 2.99 goals-against average and .898 save percentage in February. Winger Brandon Pirri missed Wednesday’s practice because of illness and Gallant said he will be one of “a couple” of game-time decisions for the Knights. Defenseman Jake Bischoff and forwards Tomas Nosek and Valentin Zykov were on the ice for the Knights’ optional morning skate and look to be the scratches. Toronto (35-18-3, 73 points) is second in the Eastern Conference standings behind Atlantic Division mate Tampa Bay and has won five of its past six. The Maple Leafs are playing the fourth of a six-game road trip and own the league’s second-best road record at 18-7-2. They scored three power-play goals in a 1:49 span of the second period Tuesday in a 5-2 victory at Colorado. Kasperi Kapanen and Nazem Kadri each had two goals, and Auston Matthews added three points against the Avalanche. Center John Tavares has eight points (three goals, five assists) in his past five games. Toronto is fourth in the league at 3.57 goals per game, and Knights defenseman Deryk Engelland compared this game to the one against Tampa Bay on Feb. 5. “They’re very similar how they play. They’re highly offensive teams that have a lot of skill and can hurt you all four lines,” Engelland said. “We’ve got to be ready, expect their best and we’ve got to come out and match that. “I think after last game — the last few games — it doesn’t matter who you’re playing. We’ve just got to get back to our game, worry about ourselves and play that full 60-minute game that we know that we can.” Golden Knights projected lineup Forwards Jonathan Marchessault-William Karlsson-Reilly Smith Max Pacioretty-Paul Stastny-Alex Tuch Brandon Pirri-Cody Eakin-Oscar Lindberg William Carrier-Pierre-Edouard Bellemare-Ryan Reaves Defensemen Brayden McNabb-Nate Schmidt Shea Theodore-Deryk Engelland Jon Merrill-Colin Miller Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury Maple Leafs projected lineup Patrick Marleau -- Auston Matthews -- Kasperi Kapanen Zach Hyman -- John Tavares -- Mitchell Marner Connor Brown -- Nazem Kadri -- William Nylander Par Lindholm -- Frederik Gauthier -- Andreas Johnsson Jake Muzzin -- Morgan Rielly Jake Gardiner -- Nikita Zaitsev Travis Dermott -- Ron Hainsey Frederik Andersen Garret Sparks Scratched: Tyler Ennis, Justin Holl, Igor Ozhiganov The Game The Toronto Maple Leafs will look for their sixth win in seven games when they visit the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena on Thursday. Toronto is 5-1-1 since its mandatory five-day break following the 2019 NHL All-Star Game and one point ahead of the Boston Bruins for second place in the Atlantic Division with a game in hand. Goalie Frederik Andersen is expected to start for the Maple Leafs. The Golden Knights are 2-6-0 in their past eight games and hope to end a four-game home losing streak, the longest in their history. Coach Gerard Gallant did not commit to a starting goalie after the morning skate. Players to watch Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews is one goal from 100 in the NHL. Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt has three points (two goals, one assist) during a three-game point streak. They said it "They got a real good team. Four lines deep, play real fast. I like their team. They're heavy, they're hard to play against. We know we have a real good game tonight." -- Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock "You better get up for [Toronto] because if you don't, you're going to get your you-know-what kicked. Our job as professional athletes and professional coaches is to get ready for the next game, no matter who you're playing." -- Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/golden-knights-nhl/game-day-golden-knights-try-to-end-home-skid-vs-maple-leafs-1597152/ https://www.nhl.com/news/toronto-maple-leafs-vegas-golden-knights-game-preview/c-304822644 LETS PULL A WIN OUT OUR BUTTS IF WE HAVE TO!

    I did leave a few blanks on the rhd while also mentioning Hamilton and Ferland. So in my world if Ferland is a free agent, who adds grit and Gardiner is a free agent, I would try to make a conditional trade. You might not, but I would. I would also add Johnsson and Liljegren and a draft pick in order to get Hamilton You wouldn't, but hey I would. Then,...say trading Zaitsev to the Rangers who should definitely take the deal because Z is so much better than McQuade right, that they would be ripping us off. so now Morgan - Hammy Muzzin - Hainsey Dermott - McQuade and hey,..I would rather handle this D core going into a playoff mode Keep looking at the frames when the picture has more to offer.

    I maybe happen to notice more in our end where many players shy away from going through a player and being able to initiate hits along the boards and basically being looked upon as hard nosed. Sure players like JT own grit. When a player boxes himself in front of the net and makes that his space nevermind playing lacrosse, he knows grit. What I am saying, as a whole, we are what we are. We won't automatically bare down and have players banging opponents along the boards in our end even though playoffs suggest this has to occur, and yes, ours can slightly step up more, just that I feel we can attain a couple of more players that own that forte and are known for it. Brown is brown, hard working or not, there are more forceful players that could have more impact on our team. gardiner is soft, no matter his partner, so suggesting and probably being satisfied with Dermotts abilities, it makes gardiner expendable. Our lefts are dependable Morgan -____________ Muzzin -________________ Dermott - Hainsey even if we could add a few of these types a ferland,... a Hamilton,....a clifford,...... a gudas,.....a McQuade .ect (add whomever) those blank spots without Jake still would balance and round out this team for a longer, grindier playoff run. So to wrap it up folks,..I do not put just skill alone in my basket, whereas a variety of fortes not only can determine your lines better but it still allows the skill to do just that and lets the grit do the grinding.

    Well once again you can sit back and root for Gardiner (which I will too so long as he is a leaf but...) when he crumbles (and he will) but according to you he is just fine, okay. What you feel is worse for our team, is actually needed and again, wait until the deadline is over because I do not feel I am the only one who sees what the team needs and when we get it, please do not cry. Our team will be better off for it.

    I will take that as a compliment. I guess posters forgot who used to stick up for Jake on more than one occasion and even though some may see it as being blind I view it as some eventually have to see the light.

    Because Zaitsev gives Gardiner superpowers to overcome his own defending deficiencies. btw,..both could be gone and I would not bat an eye and would look forward to it.

    And Gardiner right there too scared to even communicate or react when he had a full view of what was about to take place. He was also soft, again, on the other goal. This avoiding body contact shows opponents where his real weakness is and it shows mostly every game he plays. I really want that ship to sail and I would prefer us trying to trade him, even for a less talented defender that at least is not afraid to defend.

    Never did I cite Vegas as the kind of team we should aspire to be even though they can supply a grittier game than us. I am just looking to round out our team where I see fit. So if you feel our D is good enough as is and does not need to show any more grit along the boards or in front of our net or turn a blind eye when Freddy gets run, well hate to say it bud, but my eye lids are open and am satisfied to address some needs I feel that will help us. If we were to only play one game matchups, well my views could change but as far as I know, playoffs are a 7 game series where more battles take place.. and that's the way I see it anyways.

    You can stay blind to it, (along with some others) but pretty sure Dubas is also looking to implement /add it to our line up.. It is not about being dirty
