Brendan Shanahan and the NHL have come down on yet another Maple Leaf; this time for a cheap, blindside hit to St. Louis Blues player, Vladimir Sobotka, by David Clarkson.

    Poor guy has to answer for this…to Mrs. Clarkson.

    An open letter to David Clarkson: we were estatic that you joined the Maple Leafs. We hoped that you would bring  your grit and determination but up to this game you have shown nothing. I think this suspension should give you some time to elevate  your game and evaluate where you are at.

    Take a look at the comments on TSN and here. Most fans are HAPPY you are suspended and so am I. If you feel you can’t do more than you should be doing I think you should ask Nonis for a trade and get the hell out of here. If you want to belong to Toronto then you better start acting like you belong here.

    signed – a disappointed fan. Hopefully others will respond to this. I doubt he will read this but what the hell.

    Steven Stamkos skates 1 month after a broken leg. He’d have healed faster but was afraid he’d be named a new Avenger & have to leave hockey.

    Queneville on Kostka: We like him, his presence w/the puck, the way he defends around the net. In the games hes played, weve been real happy

    wiskiingy56Shit soaked pucks.

    How does it make sense that he loses $109,576.10 in salary for a two game suspension, but only $269,230.80 for his 10 game suspension? 

    Either he loses $547,880.50 for the 10 game suspension or $53,846.16 for the two game suspension.

  • .JVR.

    Or does he lose a certain percentage of his salary depending on how man times he’s been suspended?

    Pick the bigger number: Clarkson’s games lost due to suspension, or end of the year goal total?

  • gunner_36

    .JVR. Repeat offenders lose a greater amount of salary.

  • gunner_36

    wiski Good news for Team Canada

  • Conski

    wiskinooo way he’s getting twelve goals this season. it’s kind of disturbing to see how much leaf land already hates this guy.

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Wake n’ vape!!!

    Justin Bieber has a bald eagle tattoo on his shoulder. Canada is thrilled and hopes everyone will now think he’s an American asshole.

    The Leafs can either reinsert Carter Ashton into the lineup or dress seven D with Clarkson suspended.

  • Shafty

    ingy56 Leivo please

  • Conski

    wiskimakes me think the Komisarek days are still not over.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Shafty ingy56 That would require a roster move…but I agree

  • gjdevlin

    gunner_36.JVR. is correct – (and for those who are unsure) basically it breaks down like this. A player learns five million a season. They earn it by day. So it is divided by 187. So 5000000/187 = 26737.97. So if player is suspended for two games then he will forfeit 53475.94. As JVR pointed out – repeat offenders will have to pay more – perhaps double? Still – it’s a disgusting amount of money he’s socking away and I’m living paycheck to paycheck…:-(

  • gunner_36

    Shafty ingy56 That would be nice. I’d take Ashton though. Scratch one of Ranger or Fraser.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    gunner_36 Shafty ingy56 Early word is both Fraser and Ranger are out tonight.

  • gunner_36

    ingy56 gunner_36 Shafty Forgot about Liles. Scratching both would be nice, but somehow I don’t see it happening.

  • sniperstar

    wiski Funny that they are harping on him. He’s 2nd on the team in corsi LOL.

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    gunner_36 ingy56 Shafty Carlyle was seen talking to both of them for a bit during the skate and the pairings indicated they wouldn’t play, but one of them could get in with this scenario unfolding.

  • gunner_36

    ingy56 gunner_36 Shafty Here’s to hoping, but what you said last is what I’m afraid of. RC will probably see it as the perfect opportunity to get one of them back in.

  • Marleafs

    gjdevlin He has to stop thinking he’s a sniper and start going to the net. When he goes to the net (even without the puck) he creates space. The Smith OT goal is a perfect example. Also, engage more physically. He really is not providing that spark I was hoping for. Looked like he had it in preseason.
    71 mentioned ‘find his identity’ during a lot of interviews after serving the 10. WTF??? This guy has very little confidence. He still needs time to recover from the suspension mentally.

    Are you American?

  • Burtonboy

    wiski O fall the arseholes on twitter this guy takes the cake . Anyone who burns a Leafs Jersey doesn’t deserve even the slightest bit of recognition

  • gjdevlin

    MarleafsgjdevlinCompletely agree – I’ve always viewed him as a guy who crashes the net to create garbage goals and opportunities for other snipers.

    As a Canadian, I have to cheer for Team Canada and should despise the Americans, but with JVR, Kessel and possibly Gardiner on the team, I’ll have to cheer for Team USA (when they’re not playing Canada)

    If he continues to play 25 minutes a night and his production continues to increase, I could see him making it.

    I mean, what do the Americans have on the backend?
    IMO Suter, Shattenkirk and Byfuglien are locks.

    That leaves 5 spots open, with Yandle, Jones, Carlson, E. Johnson, J. Johnson, Martin, Orpik, Faulk, Gardiner and Fowler to fight over.

    Might be a long shot, but it’s definitely a possibility.
