Episode #2 of the Maple Leafs Hot Stove Hangout features an in-depth discussion about the Leafs/Sabres preseason punch up; the consequences of David Clarkson’s 10-game suspension; Mason Raymond’s signing and the battle for the remaining roster spots.
@Gilbey93 This is as much as a fight as John Scott Vs Kessel...

@dlb eh x 2 :)
@dlb eh Kaleta part - totally agree 100%.
Showboating part, hard to collectively change the thought patterns of a crowd.
Pride back part, I agree too. But easier said than done no? And sometimes in the heat of the moment , "everyone" reverts back to an inner child mentality. You try to be and act like a role model, but it's the nature of the game.
@dlb eh Speaking of Gus, he is injured again in Detroit, this guy needs a MASH unit !
It is obvious that you are not a Leaf fan, but a troll. What colour is the sky in your world, because you only see what you want to see...which has zero correlation to reality.
@Greg Fenton @dlb eh I commend your willingness to take the most unpopular postion possible. That said, when at least part of your opinion is based on speculation about what Kessel said, its weakened. I don't think Scott made reference to Kessel chirping. And it doesn't seem likely that Kessel would say something to provoke him. Your opinion about the stick work - c'mon. Was it really all that?
@Pent_House Dam adding images sucks on this system
@dlb eh @Thedoor29 See, that's how I see things...if not for Scott being an absolute Tool, none of this would have happened. Fair went out the window when he went after Kessel. If Kessel was looking to injure, rather then protecting himself and/or team mates, he would have been trying to knock his head off rather than taking a couple swings at ankle level.
@Thedoor29 @vacant3 @Greg Fenton @newkb Sorry, but take that situation off the ice and put it on the street. Small guy carrying a stick gets threatened by a Goliath wanting to fight. You're damn right it's reasonable for him to swing his stick. And so would you. The letter of the law and the spirit of the law don't always mesh. That's why you have judges. Not everything is clear cut.
@vacant3 @Thedoor29 @Greg Fenton @newkb oh come on vacant don't try to avoid the question. was it justified and understandable YES the guy is a top 5 fighter in the league and the other is a top 5 scorer in the league. is it reasonable and legal to allow players to use their sticks on other players NEVER. Sorry leafers I think Kessel gets the rest of preseason and maybe game 1
@Greg Fenton @vacant3 @newkb Yes, both parties can be wrong. But the ridiculousness of Scott actually wanting to fight Kessel (which is mind-blowingly ridiculous) means a few "can you fuckin' believe this???" jabs with a stick are acceptable in my opinion. If Kessel caused an injury, I'd agree with you. But he didn't, and so I don't.
@newkb You gave the guy a like!!! lol
