Good Game Day Morning....great day to be a Leafer. Any team is capable of beating any team on any given night.......I'm thinking it's time for the Leafs to turn things around with a big win tonight.......GO LEAFS GO!!!
I'm sure the HBO cameras wish they were there for the Pittsburg game. Lot's of drama and story lines in that one.. I wonder how the cameras will effect everyone. ref,s coaches, broadcast personalities, Owners, management. I think they will all act differently, not just the players.
Could this be a trap game for the Sharks? On a tear and very confident Coming east the 1st game is always the toughest game in the NHL to play. We see it all the time . We caught the Ducks in that trap earlier this yr and I've seen far to many Eastern teams shit the bed the 1st game back from a western road trip. Its a slim chance I know but fuck I hope the Leafs can turn some heads tonight.
Morning Gents. This HBO stuff looks good. I hope the cameras don't mess with the minds of the players. Just show up tonight and give a full 60 minute effort.
@TheCanucksnaphook I hope it was from someone taking a poke at that fuckin douche bag
@Burtonboy We will need to take it to these fools
@TheCanucksnaphook Don't even need that. Gunnar and Dion are fine. Gardiner is the only other player playing like an NHL Dman(except for Rielly), and that's only sometimes. We just need a competent bottom pairing.
@wendelsway1 Couldn't agree more....
@The Truth Hurts The Leafs increase their tempo to match a top notch team, RC finds lines that click, D comes together and the Leafs get some desperately needed confidence. 5-2. Kadri with a hat trick.
@The Truth Hurts Bozak with 4 goals tonight bro, Gardiner with 5 assists :)
@mcloki Would be funny to see the Leafs players show up first day of Filming wearing Don Cherry Suits, Class up the Filming lol
@Burtonboy Don't get your hopes up. 7-1 Sharks, lol
@Burtonboy I'm thinking they will haul their heads out of their asses tonight and come out with a 4-2 win...lets just hope they don't get fucked AGAIN by the refs.....that mother fucker ref that was born in Quebec I might add, that called back the Phaneuf goal on Saturday should be kicked in the nuts with steel toe boot. That call was a disgrace, the officiating is a joke. Dave Lewis is running a circus.
@mcloki Morning MC, maybe the camera's will be a good thing, We might get up for the games and play 60 minutes. Nothing like a microscope with a camera to keep people honest :)
@The Truth Hurts Just trying to balance out the site.....go have another coffee, ya big grump...lol :)
@Cameron19 @Burtonboy I'm as much a pessimist as anyone, but I have a feeling based on no evidence whatsoever that it won't go down like that. If Carlyle can put together the right mixture in the forward lines, if whatever goalie can get some cofidence with a few early saves, who knows? Beating a top notch team like San Jose could certainly break the fever
@hoolihan @Burtonboy It certainly has the potential to get very ugly . We will see I guess . Being a Leafs fan I will look for whatever ray of hope I can find. I've found over many many yrs if I don't take that approach Its simply too frustrating. Its the only thing that has allowed me to remain a fan.
@The Truth Hurts Geez...just because you can't handle my sparkling personality, first thing in the morning.....Hey ho to you too....lol :)
@The Truth Hurts a third line C on a cup winning team.. good in his own zone and chips in offensively. Don't sell what he does short.
@The Truth Hurts He's a beast...
@hoolihan In the NHL, at the best of times, things have to go right, turn in your favor, to manage a win
@phaneufoundlander ....seems like since the Kessel Scott thing...and then someone mentioned the Mclaren towel waving incident yesterday...ref's after us.....now the Leafs are missing "emotion" period....I still say a good bench clearing brawl or a good ref shit kicking is in order....take the suspensions...strike out, bring up the Marlies for a few.....
they had to be, I think even Bernier was influenced by the maffia lol and remember when Theodore played for the caps vs MTL in the playoffs? He was aweful, as if he was letting in weak goals....definitley might be something to it :)....I mean, the ref was from Montreal, give me a break, and it looked as if he was gonna waive that goal no matter what....total God dam bullshit, it was worse than the Kerry Fraser call and yet the leafs just sit back like pussies and dont say a word...Nonis or Carlye should rip into the officiating and take the fine!!!!!
