2014 Winter Classic Alumni Game 2

Part 2 of the 2014 Winter Classic Alumni game shows both team’s best lineups (save for the Maple Leafs‘ Sundin, who is recovering for Surgery). The lineups for both teams are stacked with Hall of Fame talent, and many Stanley Cup Winners. Toronto’s lineup, unsurprisingly, contains a lot truculence (that can play).

Enjoy the game.

Darryl Sittler always looks like he's constipated. Smile Darryl, it's an alumni game and you are with Gordie Howe. It's not Game 7 vs. Philadelphia.

Henny may be a pure Leafs homer but I love watching him doing pre-game shows.  A real class act.  Even with his toque on.


Hey Alec, tell him MLHS says hi and HNY!!

So for those guys who didnt like the Bernier trade....do you like it now?  Still with Camp Reimer and will you be surprised when Reims is traded?

Happy New Year MLHS (and a Merry Winter Classic to you too, Alec haha)

I enjoyed the games yesterday, from Canada and seeing some of my favourite players (as a kid) on the ice again.

I like the Phaneuf signing.  I like how he's evolved.  I also liked what Nonis had to say.

Woke up feeling good about 2014.

Happy New Year Everyone. I wish it's the best year for all of us.

I want this win even more after spending New Year's Eve at my brother-in-laws, with two Wings fans, a Bruins fan and a Sabres fan.


From them dissing the Phaneuf signing, asking how I feel about having a Captain that split the dressing room in Calgary and walked into Toronto and took over the music to how stupid the Clarkson signing was.

@ingy56 Ah yes the Southern US teams...remind me where the most knowledgeable fanbases are again? I remember during the Kings run to the finals a few LA reporters either referred to the Sacramento Kings or their logo. I can see why players would want to play there. Live large without any of the attention.

haha, what was with Gordie trying to get on the other side of them?

@TheCanucksnaphook I would be happy with either goalie starting.  Both of their SV% are pretty decent with Bernier playing better this season but Reimer has more games played.

Inevitable that he is traded. A happy guy like Reimer showing his feelings like he has I am thinking there may be much more he is not showing. I would love to keep both and thought any possible trade would be after the season. Not so sure now. Carlyle is leaning toward Bernie (if it was a contest) and Reimer's speaking out may speed up the process.

@TheCanucksnaphook 

Oh yea, speaking of trades.

The one bozo last night was saying that Burke blew it, because Leafs could have had Letang for Fraser and Frattin, but he turned it down.


I asked him how exactly Burke blew it, when he was fired before the season, but if that rumour is true, which I doubt it is, Nonis definitely dropped the ball on that one!

@TheCanucksnaphook Wasn't originally a fan of the trade only because I felt it was wasting trading chips on a position that wasn't the true need - it was more of a want than a need.  But he has played well....no denying that.  Definitely like having 2 good goalies.

@TheCanucksnaphook

i feel better with this tandem than without.  Kadri, Gardiner and both Bernier and Reimer will help us become a winner one way or another.  good problems to have at the very least.

@dlb eh 

Did you see Dion at the presser?  He was quite articulate in his comments and then later answering questions.  He's come a long way in the department and seems much more comfortable in that role.


People can say what they want but I really think he relishes being the Leafs captain for the next 7 and half years.  Good on him.

@.JVR. I spent NY with some Habs fans. The grins came of their face as they watched the hilites of last nites game. Priceless

@vinoa @ingy56 Last season the NBC affiliate in Seattle ran a bowling tournament instead of the Stanley Cup Finals. This is where Gary wants an expansion team.

@.JVR. @TheCanucksnaphook Letang's a walking injury these days. I don't know who he could pair with to cover for all of his defensive screw ups. I'd rather take Subban right now over Letang, which I hope will be soon.

@newkb But Reimer is going to be traded...that is more of my question.  How will you feel when that happens.

@Knights2Leafs

anyone who can't believe a player and person can't still evolve and improve at 28 years of age is a fool or a person who is cheering against them

@Knights2Leafs @dlb eh Yep....and I really don't care what anyone says, he left money on the table to remain a Leaf......no doubt in my mind he would have gotten more if he had went to market.

@Zep2@.JVR.was that after Corson scored or domi who then gave a certain defenseman a cuff to the helmet lmao now that was priceless just before sittler scored

@Zep2


I think I held my own in the debates with the fools.


About Phaneuf, I told them a leader to take over the room was exactly what the Leafs needed and I would take Dion over any defencemen currently playing for their teams.

Sure Chara is better now, but the guy is 36 years old and doesn't have alot of time left.


We were watching 24/7 after the ball dropped and they were making fun of Clarkson getting mad at Bertuzzi over the water bottle incident and said that Clarkson better watch out, cause Bertuzzi would kill him.

I asked if he was gonna be doing that by throwing a sucker punch from behind, while Clarkson is skating up the ice, haha.

@Cameron19 @.JVR. Morons everywhere....sometimes it can't be helped...lol  Had my Phaneuf jersey on last night and had to deal with a friend of a friend who was a very drunk Habs fan last night......laughed in my face and kept on yelling Leafs suck as he grabbed my ass......ended with me smacking his fingers with a pool cue and telling him to get the fuck away from me or next swing he'd be losing teeth.......Hubby "helped" him to the door, shortly after....

@TheCanucksnaphook@newkb If the return is small and we end up with all our eggs in one basket (Bernier) with no proven backup, I won't be very happy.

@dlb eh @wendelsway1 Yep....pretty much at a point that whoever goes will be liked by some......very interested to see who Nonis can add in the near future.

@wendelsway1

we know much of what we're building with now.  only a few more players on the roster Nonis will have to make tough decisions on before we turn the final corner.
