    I think Declan just farted.

  • wendelsfist

    Can we ask questions, if so what do you see as the bigger problem with the leafs 
    1.  The lack of being able to sustain offensive zone pressure

    2. A poor zone breakout and passivity in the neutral zone 
    3. The inability to break/neutralize the oppositions cycle

  • wendelsfist

    Also grit is not just hitting but also being “strong on the puck” and digging pucks out of the corner (puck retrieval)

  • Knights2Leafs

    So, I’m assuming you guys are getting a feed?  Not me.

    Gus has a big point in that we lack that support after the initial battles along the boards.

  • Burtonboy

    Oh joy our PK is good ?

  • Burtonboy

    Right now I have no freakin clue how we ever managed to win 21 games

  • Loric76

  • wendelsfist

    Burtonboy We have above average talent but probably a poor strategy so we are underperforming our potentila

  • Burtonboy

    I would also pic Jay Rosehill. He can play fourth line and act as team eye doctor. https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Sochi2014&src=hash https://twitter.com/search?q=%23TeamCanada&src=hash http://t.co/YJ2n0UrfMH

  • reenergized

    Loric76 Burtonboy we cheated ????? crap

  • Loric76

    is it me or is Gus the one guy that actually takes longer to make a point than Langlois?

  • Bon Scott was a Leaf fan

    Loric76 
    Gus knows his shit.

  • reenergized

    wiski LOL

  • Loric76

    Bon Scott was a Leaf fan Loric76 oh no question.  Just slow to explain his shit

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    bang on!

  • wiski

    Loric76 Bon Scott was a Leaf fan 
    I think Gus is very well spoken.  He brings up examples to back up his points, he explains exactly what he’s talking about, and he’s bang on (as per Dangle up above).  Having Gus on the Hangout is a real treat (imo).

  • vinoa

    Dangle_My_Berries Read my mind. I could see them doing that in my mind as he said it.
