    Cool beans!!  Another MLHS Hangout.  And I even have time to load up the laundry before it starts.
    Man, I love this place!!

  • TuckerForPunishment

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I love you! ;-P

  • Zep2

    On Anthonys  point 4, I think Rielly is the best prospect we’ve had since Sittler / MacDonald. Iafrate had the tools but was ruined by Boss Ballards Bumblers
    Wish I could Hangout for awhile but I’ve got a game in 40 minutes , time to run

  • Burtonboy

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Love Beans …as long as there is bacon to go with them lol

  • .JVR.

    So, I guess this is the new place to “hangout.”
    Even though there isn’t really anybody online tonight.

    Gives me time to charge my vape too.
    Just listening to Bobby Mack from the TSN Drive spot earlier this evening….talking about the new deal and what it means to TSN…saying things will go forward without much changing and there is more to sports than NHL hockey.  I beg to differ, Bob.

  • mcloki

    this might be pretty good

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

  • Burtonboy

    Shift_Disturber1 So what exactly is this shotgun clause ?

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    We miss Bolland BIGTIME!!

  • mcloki

    its all good

  • theacs1966

    Alec Brownscombe Can I ask the lawyer a question through you?

  • Komas Taberle

    Burtonboy Shift_Disturber1 
    Bell and Rogers must have an agreement to buy one another out of MLSE if the other wants it.

  • Loric76

    Burtonboy Shift_Disturber1 soething about shooting the Rogers guy that stole the broadcast deal from tsn with a shotgun.

  • Komas Taberle

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan TuckerForPunishment 
    Yeah Bob can handle coverage in the Annual Horseshoe Tourny at Brooklin fair

  • theacs1966

    Alec Brownscombe Is it possible for a player like Liles or Luongo, either during the season or off season to say,” I hate my contract, it’s holding me back, I want to make it null and void”?  So could Liles go to the Leafs and say, I don’t want to play here anymore, I want to walk away from my contract and become a free agent, and the team agrees to this, could it be done?

  • Loric76

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan greasy

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Is auto update working??  Or perhaps no one is posting.

  • mcloki

    Franson

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    I’m expecting more from Kadri too.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Rogers is gonna increase my rates now.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Kypreos and Healy together??  My Lord…please NO!!

  • The Truth Hurts

    Almost typed something I’d regret

  • mcloki

    no one’s posting I think they are listening
    It’s pretty gopd

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    mcloki this is some serious news that I think we are all still trying to understand

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    LOL….trade deadline day.  Most over-rated day of the year.

  • mcloki

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 6 hours of watching Dutchie act like an idiot

  • JWaterdrager

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan no, that is new years without booze

  • MaxwellHowe

    theacs1966 Alec Brownscombe Isn’t that essentially what Kovalchuk did?

  • mcloki

    The most important question guys is will Bowen be doing all the Leaf games. The rest is not important.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    JWaterdrager Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    Meh!!  I’ve been doing New Years without booze for 24 years now.  No biggie.

  • .JVR.

    So, by the sounds of it, McClement is moving to LW tomorrow night, while Holland will centre the third line.
    I dunno about the rest of you, but I’d rather see Holland put back on the top line between JVR and Kessel, with Bozak moving to the third line between McClement and Kulemin to form a shutdown line.

  • mcloki

    Dangle_My_Berries mcloki Hey SN just became the ESPN of Canada. They are going to be the leaders in Canadian Sports for the next decade.

  • vinoa

    Dangle_My_Berries mcloki I just got here 10 mins ago. Miss a lot?

  • Xxxxxnew

    Looks like the new deal could (a) pressure the NHL for another Canadian team and (b) increase that $430 million a year revenue figure if another Canadian teams is added.

  • Pent_House

    I wonder how much the cap will go up alone from this new TV deal

  • mcloki

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Kipper I can stomach. Healy well read my profile #FireHealy

  • mcloki

    Shift_Disturber1 CBC is done.

  • Xxxxxnew

    I’m more interested in the cap increase.

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    thanks for the detailed breakdown guys, you have shed some light on a rather crazy day.

  • mcloki

    Shift_Disturber1 we all hate when they don’t show up.

  • mcloki

    Xxxxxnew That is already decided. I’m more concerned with my enjoyment of the game.

  • Xxxxxnew

    I don’t think he’d be NHL eligible. It would be retirement. Kovi wouldn’t have been able to join another NHL team.

  • theacs1966

    MaxwellHowe theacs1966 Alec Brownscombe Sorry, I should have added, without retiring.  Though I did say he would become a free agent.  So long as both agree, but does the new CBA allow for that kind of deal after a deal to be struck?

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Good Hangout!!  I liked what Elliott brought to the table.  If we could get him and Gus together for an episode….it’d be the bees knees.

  • mcloki

    well done. See you tomorow folks.

  • .JVR.

    mcloki
    Yup, like I said before, they have a life expectancy of about 4 years.
    Once their agreement with Rogers runs out, Rogers will move HNIC to Sportsnet or City and the government will pull the plug on CBC.
