HBO 24/7: Leafs / Red Wings Episode #2 Best Clips

375

In a far more entertaining second episode of 24/7, both clubs are mired in the frustration of losing too many games, with the respective head coaches serving as the central characters. A furious Mike Babcock sends an HBO cameraman scurrying out of the Wings dressing room. During Randy Carlyle’s outburst, the Toronto cameraman has the foresight to tape through a half-closed door rather than standing in the middle of the maelstrom.

Among the must-see Leaf-related moments:

Carlyle peels paint:
The first proper freak out by Carlyle of the 24/7 series came down 3-0 at the second intermission versus Florida. Wow.

Here was Carlyle at about 75% pissed off when the team was down 1-0 to Pittsburgh after 1:

We can’t stop:
Entered the 24/7 series hoping to see Jake Gardiner dance shirtless to Miley Cyrus? Here you go:

Dion vs. Phil ping pong match.
Talk about a role reversal: Dion is the forehand sniper and Kessel is good at defence.

Leafs vs. Penguins:
Dion and Sid have a who-hit-who argument at center ice.

A few Monday morning Leafs links…

The Leaf rollercoaster continues
Another Leaf lead evaporates late in the game on Saturday.

Nazem Kadri facing great challenges and getting less luck
From Jonas Siegel.

James Reimer wasn’t happy about getting pulled
He deserved the yank on Saturday. Makes you wonder if the reaction was more a culmination of how he feels he’s been treated this season.

    Hope everyone is safe during the horrible bit of weather Ontario and Eastern Canada  has faced the last couple of days. We dodged a bit of a bullet here last night as the freezing rain wasn’t a bad as expected and most of the storm has now passed through the area.

  • Knights2Leafs

    Burtonboy London is 2 hours west of Toronto so we were really lucky to miss this weekend’s storm. Last weekend, we got a minor storm and the Brampton, Mississauga corridor got the brunt of it. Caused me to cancel my trip to watch the Leafs play Chicago.  :(    Better to be safe and sound.  Hope all our MLHSers are doing okay and I hope Bon got to his cabin safely.

    Good Morning Folk
    We get the Rangers on the 2nd nite of a a back to back. Talbot played last nite and Rangerss has good win over Minny. Does Talbot start again or to we get a struggling King Henry.?
    We need to start the game with both feet on the gas
    Orr will probably dress if only to keep brian Boyle honest
    Will it ever stop snowing?

  • Zep2

    CanuckUKinToronto i THINK YOURE RIGHT ABOUT JVR / KESSEL WITH SOME KIND OFF INJURY

  • Burtonboy

    I’m beginning to wonder if there is a center other then Bozak that could play well with Kessel. If you look at the way he plays he’s more like Paul Kariya who once he crossed the blue line he plays like a center. Kessel is as much playmaker as he is a shooter and likes to have the puck on his stick in Ozone . Grabo didn’t work ,Holland didn’t appear to mesh all that well and neither does Kadri from the looks of it .

  • Mind Bomb

    Zep2  Morning Zep, We can take the Rangers, no matter who is in the Net, and that is a Wild Card team that we may be competing with for the last playoff spot. These 2 points in Regulation is huge !

  • Mind Bomb

    Burtonboy  Kes is a Natural Center ? we Need a Winger who can win draws lol, then they can switch lol

  • Burtonboy

    Mind Bomb Burtonboy Bozak lol.

    After watching 24/7, imho, i think some of Carlyle’s tactics may be out dated………while i definitely believe the players need a ‘kick in the pants’ once and awhile i think Carlyle should use his outbursts sparingly because while i do agree the players are considered ‘professional’ hockey players and should be able to get themselves up for a game and motivate themselves, thats not the way it is….i also believe it is partly Carlyle’s job to do that as well………take Ted Nolan for example, he is not an X’s and O’s type coach, he is known as a motivator.  He took a so so islander team and they overachieved into the playoffs one year…..I’m kinda torn because i do believe it is not Carlyle’s job to get these guys up for games but some of these guys are still kids and the old punch Imlach style does not work anymore…………..

    I agree with the sentiment that this team has been off since day 1.  But if that’s the case I suspect it’s less about motivation issues and more systems based.  I’m not ready to go on the fire RC bandwagon but I’m really beginning to have my doubts that his systems and the style of play he wants match the personnel we have.

  • Jon5200

    hoolihanJon5200good points….i would also agree that with the goalie situation festering a bit…..u r going to have to eventually trade 1 and it will not be Bernier….i wouldnt be surprised to see a trade involving both those players u mentioned………i like Nonis style……doesnt panic but will improve the team when he can….ie peter holland

  • 4evrblue

    hoolihanJon5200 just a gut feeling but I keep assuming Franson is on his way out

  • HeatherRickAkin

    The Marlies …  A decent mid pack team, and some good prospects.  Anyone know how the kids are doing down on the farm ? Brennan is no kid, but having a banner season . Is he trade bait ?? Same for Abbott ?? Trade bait ?? I see Leivo has 12 pts but has only platyed 21 games….is he hurt ?   MacWilliams and Granville ??  I really liked MacW in the preseason , but wonder how he is doing now. Petter Granville was invisible in September, but looks like he is headed for the bigs ….anyone know first hand what this group look like ?

  • 4evrblue

    HeatherRickAkin Brennan is still only 24. You’re right in that he isn’t a kid but he’s not a grizzled vet either.

  • MaxwellHowe

    I don’t want to start a big row here, but just consider the players the Leafs have obtained and the reasons those players were available.  Why did the Canucks make Phanuef available?  Why was Kessel, a budding star, traded?  JVR?  Lupul?  Raymond?  Franson?  Gardiner?  Holland?  Ranger?  I’m not singling out any one of those players, but perhaps management oughta consider why their original teams made them expendable.  Sometimes what appears to be a great opportunity, in terms of a trade, might be a trojan horse. 
    Just suggesting that when you accumulate talented players that were inexplicably made available, maybe you end up accumulating a few head cases along the way.

  • HeatherRickAkin

    4evrblueHeatherRickAkin doesn’t look like he will get a sniff from the Leafs ….ergo, do they try to trade him in a pkg deal ??

  • GeorgeCastanza

    Hey Leafs , better win tonight. santa says Hi from maple Leafs square.

  • 4evrblue

    hoolihanJon5200wonder if they would like to see Nash with the “C” in Ragville? Would love to see Callahan in blue and white

  • Burtonboy

    4evrblue HeatherRickAkin And still a defensive liability . There’s a reason he hasn’t cracked an NHL  lineup yet

  • HeatherRickAkin

    Burtonboy4evrblueHeatherRickAkin geez….he’d fit right in with us ….

  • Burtonboy

    HeatherRickAkin Burtonboy 4evrblue Probably make it worse then it already is

  • HeatherRickAkin

    BurtonboyHeatherRickAkin4evrblue gulp

  • Mind Bomb

    4evrblue hoolihan Jon5200  Morning Blue, I would be shocked if its Franson, A 6 5 Right shot Offensive D man. He is the only Right shot we have 

    PS what league did you want Mason in, we are in a few together, Keon ? Gilmour ?

  • Knights2Leafs

    hoolihan Knights2Leafs Jon5200 
    lol – do we have the same personnel playing?  So if it’s not the systems then it’s just been the players being lazy from day one then. Um – doubt that.

  • wendelsway1

    Good Game Day Morning Fellas……All I want for Christmas is a string of Leafs wins….GO LEAFS GO!!

  • Burtonboy

    hoolihan Burtonboy 4evrblue HeatherRickAkin Gardiner is right behind Dion and Gunnar as one of only 3 plus players we have on that backend.

  • BBirde

    MaxwellHowe LOL what? Lupul was available because he had an injury history. JVR again injury history and buried under a bunch of other players they believed to be better. Gardiner was the piece that Burke wanted in the Beauchimen deal. Franson wasn’t getting play time in Nashville who is stacked on defense, Kessel wasn’t going to commit to Bruin hockey and Calgary’s GM is an idiot which is why Phaneuf was traded for nothing.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Always the optimist.  CBC had the good sense to air Christmas Vacation last nite.  Thank God a Christmas movie other than the Home Alone flicks was on TV

  • wendelsway1

    hoolihan Burtonboy 4evrblue HeatherRickAkin Of course teams are interested in Gardiner…for the same reasons we shouldn’t be trading him.  Reilly and Gardiner are different players and there is room enough for both on my team…..Reilly does not make Gardiner expendable IMO.

  • Burtonboy

    hoolihan Burtonboy 4evrblue HeatherRickAkin They are interested in Franson , Rielly , JVR and Kadri as well. Don’t mean diddly squat . Any player can be traded if the return justifies the move. Right now Nois himself has said all the offers he has are a joke and he’s standing pat till the right deal comes along .I don’t buy all this trade bullshit the media keeps spewing just to improve rating for their TV programs.

  • wendelsway1

    hoolihan wendelsway1 I’ve been a good girl………honest…lol  :)

  • MaxwellHowe

    Not one point you made answers my argument.  Players that have histories of injury aren’t necessarily traded.  Gardiner was a first round pick who obviously had failed to impress the brass in Anaheim.  Franson was traded for another defencemen.  Kessel not wanting to commit to Bruins hockey is hardly a satisfactory explanation.  And concluding that the Flames GM is an idiot avoids the question altogether.

  • Mind Bomb

    wendelsway1  Morning WW, Leafs win Tonight !

  • wendelsway1

    Burtonboy hoolihan 4evrblue HeatherRickAkin Exactly….just because teams are asking about certain players, doesn’t mean that Nonis will trade ’em……We should be keeping our younger, better skilled players….Gardiner, Rielly are our future on D.

  • MaxwellHowe

    I agree, but if this team gets a shakeup it will probably be Reimer, Gardiner or Kadri or all three gone.  Just a feeling I have that those 3 are the only attractive trade bait the mgt. could be conviced to part with.  Reimer seems unhappy, Gardiner played his worse game on Saturday night, and Kadri is not pushing forward on this team.

  • wendelsway1

    MaxwellHowe Really eh?….just how many times are the Home Alone movies going to be on, FFS……every time I turn on the TV.

  • Burtonboy

    hoolihan Burtonboy 4evrblue HeatherRickAkin Well I base my opinions mostly on the little bit of feedback we get from Management . Nonis is particular . His was pretty definitive in his last interview on TSN when he called Kadri Rielly and Gardiner the future of the team . He also pretty much said he wants to wait till they ice a full squad before they decide what changes are needed. As for the current slide he said its up to the players to dig their way out of it . Unless he gets an offer that blows his doors off I don’t expect him to do too much till the off season.
