Good nite folks

Some of you guys are hilarious. Kadri plays with 2 pylons and you want to know where he was? Ridiculous.

Re-penalties, if we take of our B&W glasses:

- we don't spend much time in the opposition zone

-we spend a lot of time in our zone

-we take penalties 200 ft from our net

-we take undisciplined penalties-JVR/ kADRI

-we can't kill penalties lately

5 PP goals against in 2 games , nothing else to say

complaining about reffing is about as effective as pissing against the wind (even though its true)

We need a 2nd line....zero chemistry between those 3.

I didn't want to say it but now it's clear Bolland was the man.

Clarkson-kadri-raymond

Ashton-Mcclement-kuly

Orr-smith-holland

(Let's get 4lines rolling tomorrow)

Dion-gunner

Reilly-franson

Gardiner-Fraser

Bernier.

That's what I hope for tomorrow, but I'm sure Mclaren will be back in cause RC prob thinks we need two enforcers in the lineup against the smurfs

Leafs will play better against the Habs. Habs have smaller forwards who won't lean too hard on the Leafs defensemen

I feel bad for Liles. He's obviously better than Ranger and may be better than 2 or 3 others. This is a horrible defensive unit right now. RC is pretty f'in blind sometimes...

Think we need the ban hammer to come out tonight.

@WendelGilmour yeah he sucked. Some nights he's great and some night he shows his age. I dont expect him to be a superstar.

@Zep2 That can all be true and you can still comment on the other factors.  Despite all that being accurate, you can't deny that the non-call on JVR's breakaway changed the outcome of the game.

You can take his legs out if you sweep the puck first, which he did. 

Nothing to see here.

@Reversethecurse67 He played the puck first. This happens game in, game out. Just because you're the Leafs doesn't make you special like you think everyone else is.

@juliesucks bipolar. Some night thery're all there some nights nowhere to be found. Where the fuck was Kadri?

@whalz i would put smith on the 2nd line in place of raymond. raymond can skate but handles the puck far too long and normally ends up losing it. smith seems to hustle hard every shift and hes in on a lot of scoring.

Actually if this season is his sophomore slump I will take it

@Cameron19 @Zep2 sure we can make a thousand comments about bad reffing like habnots and kanucklehead fans, except that even without the reffing we have sucked

@DeclanK @Reversethecurse67 So why doesn't everybody just dive straight for the puck all the time, if it doesn't matter how the player is taken out from below - like the defensive play in soccer?

@darthNihilus @Cameron19 @Zep2 True, but it doesn't change the fact that outcome changing calls are being made consistently. Tough to battle through when you're also struggling.  As a fan, and a guy who watches a lot of hockey, it's hard for me to accept that when we struggle, it gets piled on, but if we were a poor team, struggling would mean the refs would back the fuck off and call nothing.

@Cameron19 @DeclanK @Reversethecurse67 This is what i'm saying. If you were allowed to take the puck off a player by diving into his legs, so long as you get the puck first, you'd think it would happen throughout the whole game (like in soccer)
