    Holland scores, 2 nothing Leafs…….I mean Marlies, why is he on the Marlies again?  I thought he was supposed to replace Kadri on the 2nd line.

  • wendelsfist

    theacs1966 who scored the other goal?

  • theacs1966

    wendelsfist theacs1966 Yeo from Broll

    About that Steve Spott tweet in the last thread, what nonsense. The Marlies are full of grinders. Pretty much everybody on that team is good along the boards and can only play a dump and chase because that’s what they’re good at.

  • Black_Hawk

    Paul Maurice was on OTR today and said that RC was a great coach and better then anything the leafs could replace him with

  • theacs1966

    newkb wendelsfist theacs1966 Broll should be called up, he’s big and has some hands, Abbott should be called up because he’s an assist machine.  Could not hurt.

    Shift_Disturber1 TheCanucksnaphook newkb Ask Microsoft’s tech support about that!

  • newkb

    TheCanucksnaphook newkb Shift_Disturber1 Won’t somebody please think of the children…..err, laptop!

  • loomx

    Black_Hawk “RC was a great coach”

    Well everyone agrees with that. He isn’t anymore.

    1DERYRS Nope

  • Black_Hawk

    loomx Black_Hawk i meant “is” my bad

  • Black_Hawk

    TheCanucksnaphook Black_Hawk Yeah the players need to wake the fuck up now

  • newkb

    theacs1966 newkb wendelsfist Do it up….anyone with a pulse and an ounce of heart works for me.

  • theacs1966

    1DERYRS Nope, no way, so if there is anything to this it’s someone else coming our way.

  • Cameron19

    Shift_Disturber1 1DERYRS No, and pretty much all of their fans will tell you that right away.  Even on the wing he hasn’t been physical.

  • Black_Hawk

    TheCanucksnaphook why are all the trade proposals being deleted?

  • 1DERYRS

    ouch…

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Black_Hawk TheCanucksnaphook Wasn’t a proposal, he was suggesting it was a report w/ no source.

  • Cameron19

    loomx Their defense is also one of the best in their league. It make sense for them. But i thought i read somewhere that Spott wasn’t being forced to adhere strictly to Carlyle’s principles.

  • 1DERYRS

    Alec Brownscombe Black_Hawk TheCanucksnaphook so if I said “hey guys, what do u think about this” it wouldn’t have been deleted?

  • Black_Hawk

    TheCanucksnaphook Black_Hawk lol haha

  • newkb

    TheCanucksnaphook Black_Hawk I heard a rumour that Jordan was being traded for a laptop to be named later….

  • Black_Hawk

    Alec Brownscombe Black_Hawk TheCanucksnaphook i see

  • newkb

    1DERYRS How does your pee pee feel?

  • http://www.unclejakescards.ca/ unclejakescards

    haha , just realised something ….
    2 years ago leafs were a run and gun offensive team , that couldnt play defense at all , and never made the playoffs …..
    so leaf fans call for rwillys head , demand a defensive minded coach ……
    now they have a defensive minded coach and the players dont want to play defense , or intense, with passion …..
    leaf fans call for another new coach . ….. with most asking for an offensiveminded coach ……. round and round we go …..
    stay the course boys , relax , live a little , got a ways to go yet ….

  • theacs1966

    newkb theacs1966 wendelsfist I don’t care where they come from I just want to see some players that are good at the hockey thing.

  • loomx

    Just blow up the organization then. Tear it down. What a ridiculous team.

  • king leary

    A lot of whack-job ideas on twitter and various hockey boards on what the leafs need to do.

    As I see it, the solution is pretty simple…

    The team you got is the only team you got.
    Grow a pair and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Do up the skates.
    Remember what got you here.
    Move your legs.
    Get to the puck first more than 50% of the time.
    Work harder than the other guy 100% of the time.
    Repeat.

    If it doesn’t work at first, keep doing it until it does.

  • Cameron19

    loomx Hopefully he’s wrong. That’s just an insane way to run a franchise. We don’t address problems in Toronto – we just hope they go away!

  • Black_Hawk

    Players need to fucken start playing, no trade or Coaching change is gonna do shit till they start to try.

  • Black_Hawk

    king leary and start giving a shit

  • loomx

    unclejakescards Wilson never had the goalies Carlyle does. That’s why he lost so often.

  • wendelsfist

    Black_Hawk I change my mind hourly what needs to happen but I want more from both the coach and the players

  • newkb

    theacs1966 newkb wendelsfist what’s hockey?

  • 1DERYRS

    newkb back to lurking I go… lol

  • http://www.unclejakescards.ca/ unclejakescards

    i heard a rumor that the iron sheik is actually jordans dad !!!

  • Mind Bomb

    loomx Perfect, even if that was their decision, dont make a trade out of desparation. play this out, there is Talent their

  • lieffan

    unclejakescards  If the lineup decisions are terrible, they’re terrible, regardless of what the “type” of coach we’re looking for.

  • http://www.unclejakescards.ca/ unclejakescards

    loomx unclejakescards naaa, it didnt matter who the goalies were , they were all hung out to dry all the time ……

  • shawzy9

    loomxBlack_Hawk Ya he got stupid all of a sudden,,, I guess Babcock is stupid also

  • newkb

    1DERYRS newkb Naw. keep posting.  All good, no harm, no foul….

    Shift_Disturber1 king leary Here’s your ribbon Phil.

  • Black_Hawk

    Cameron19 loomx no one fires there coach and makes a trade every time they go through a horrible streak. Look at the bottom feeders and even teams like LA and Canucks who have been struggling of late. They have done the same as us……nothing

  • loomx

    Black_Hawk Ah the classic “they just need to try harder. Compete! Compete! Intangibles!” All words that are meaningless and only used when a coach doesn’t know how to fix things.

  • Black_Hawk

    Mind Bomb loomx yeah i believe thats what we  got to do.

  • theacs1966

    Holland scores 3 minutes into his Marlie career.
