    Alec Brownscombe Liles could possibly handle the Oiler’s speed a bit better.

  • Loric76

    just started watching, lol Langlois took 45 seconds to get through the sentence introducing Mirtle.  I’m surprised Mirtle didn’t hang up before he got thru it all

  • wiski

    Shift_Disturber1 You don’t think that would be a bit much for the kid?

  • lukethenuke

    Shift_Disturber1 thats such a softtt dcorps… yikes

  • whalz

    I’d rather see this:
    Dion-gards
    Reilly-Franson
    Gunner-Liles

  • lukethenuke

    Nikhil Daljeet lukethenuke standards scoring, as well as powerplay g/a/p, +-, pims, hits, shots

    His playing carer may be behind him, but Guy Lafleur has finally come to his senses: http://t.co/3PptIFZgzg

  • wiski

    Shift_Disturber1 Didn’t the boys here just go to one of these.

  • JMAC17

    Loric76 Yeah his set ups are getting longer and longer! haha…still great stuff though!

  • wiski

    Shift_Disturber1 wiski dinners at the old gardens

  • whalz

    I get it forsure, but Rielly is not ready to play against 1st line talent just yet…Maybe put Rielly with Gunnar and Liles +Franson together??

  • wiski

    Loric76 Haha

  • wiski

    Shift_Disturber1 wiski foundation meet and great

    Loric76 Some Leaf fans won’t like this a bit.

  • Loric76

    ingy56 Loric76 maybe, but Habs fans will absolutely hate it and that’s why it’s awesome.

  • whalz

    They did play well together, so your choices are Liles or Gunnar togetherwith Dion and have Reilly on the 3d pairing.

    Matt Moulson has his second goal of the night to pull the Sabres within 3-2 with 2:43 left in second

  • whalz

    Lol..go bbm or email RC and tell him what you would like to see…
    I’m hoping that Liles gets a shot, he deserves it.

    Burtonboy Nice story developing here….

  • wiski

    I was lucky enough to go to the old gardens (Ryerson / Loblaws) to watch the season opener with Bower, Sittler, Joseph, Krushelynski(sp?), Barnaby. Krushelnyski was the best he shared a few stories with me. He said there is no money in backchecking. I asked Cujo if he was really pissed at Quinn when he gave him that blocker handshake in the pregame. He said no just was an awkward situation and gave me a smile.

  • wiski

    Burtonboy Who needs Tavarse 😉

  • mcloki

    We do

  • Pazzuzzu

    Hey guyz, just dropped buy for a quick comment…
    Last time I posted I suggested Nonis go after Nail in EDM. Since then, a quote from Nail had his character come into question. Even so, I think the Leafs brass and coaching staff could straighten him out.
    Was checking out capgeek the other day, and with BUF on the rebuild, maybe Steve Ott could be had.
    Oddly enough, Gards and Liles salary match almost exactly with Nail and Stevie. Consider this…Gardiner(in a Nail Y deal) and Liles(in an Ott deal) + draft picks (in whatever combination to satify EDM and BUF)  to acquire both Nail Y. and Stevie O.  
    In this scenerio, Randy C. could shelter Nail and Kadri on the third line so they are not matched up with the opponents top pairing, giving that line a great opportunity to put up some points, as Kadri did last year while being somewhat sheltered. Bozak’s line is…well…what we always see with that line. Bolland’s line could not only score but would be an effective shutdown line as Clems line would most certainly be(Ott can take draws as well) and I see some sick speed and nifty mittens on that (sheltered) Kadri line :-)
    JVR-Bozak-Kessel
    Lupul-Bolland-Clarkson
    Raymond-Kadri-Nail Y
    Ott-Clem-Kulie
    Don’t know about you guys, but I like it !!

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Pazzuzzu Ott deserves Buffalo. Enough about him

  • Loric76

    Pazzuzzu this team needs D more than anything.  Find us a Beauchamin.

  • mcloki

    Nyett to Nail

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Loric76 Pazzuzzu plus this. Robidas would be nice.

  • Loric76

    Alec Brownscombe Loric76 Pazzuzzu Yup.

  • Jmessih

    lukethenuke Nikhil Daljeet I have Wheeler he has been a ghost so far this season

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Pazzuzzu Moving a significant package of assets for more wing talent seems wasteful, even if he could be great. Need to focus on a 1c and an experienced top 4 D with shutdown capability.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    gilmourhalloffame wiski Shift_Disturber1 You’re the guy I met, right?

  • MaxwellHowe

    Thank you kind demon. It had gotten too quiet and even tempered here

  • wiski

    Matt Moulson is tied for 3rd in goals by players in a Sabres uniform this season. Took 2 periods to do it.

  • newfiesinker

    Any score on the mtl game ?

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Shift_Disturber1 When are they just gonna call it shot attempts and shot attempt differential. It makes it so much more obvious and simple sounding, way more easily understood based on name alone.

  • Burtonboy

    Alec Brownscombe Shift_Disturber1 amusing lol

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Burtonboy Alec Brownscombe Shift_Disturber1 Doesn’t it make a ton more sense though, BB?
