    TheCanucksnaphook Except for St Louis i guess. But yes lets win big tonight. Go Leafs Go!

  • Loric76

    TheCanucksnaphook not fucking possible

  • 4evrblue

    Is Aulie really playing 4th line RW?

  • Loric76

    TheCanucksnaphook and watch your fucking language

  • wendelsfist

    Aulie vs Ashton in face punching fun?

  • Shift_Disturber1

    a clean 2 points for the Leafs is all I ask

  • Cosmos1973

    What do you mean….Palat, Killhorn, Crombeen, and Keith Aulie (the winger version)…this is as tough as they come….(cough, hack….clear throat).
    Jesus, this has to be a win at home….start the Bernier years!

  • Shift_Disturber1

    TheCanucksnaphook   Fuck that bullshit

  • Loric76

    4evrblue that’s awesome if he is, means we essentially got Ashton for a McLaren

  • 4evrblue

    wendelsfist Keith “Muhammed” Aulie VS. Carter “The Killer” Ashton!!!

  • Alec Brownscombe

    4evrblue I don’t know, but I’m excited to find out.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    TheCanucksnaphook Cooper has a cast of rookies he coached in Syracuse the years prior and they’re playing their heads off. That to go along with St. Louis + Bishop. Filppula a good add, too.

  • Cosmos1973

    So we traded RW for RW in that Aulie for Ashton deal?

  • Loric76

    Shift_Disturber1 won’t be anything clean about the 7-0 beatdown the Lighting are about to receive, despite the 75 PIM the refs throw at us

  • Loric76

    Cosmos1973 I like trading away Ron Wilson, but not getting one back

  • Loric76

    Alec Brownscombe TheCanucksnaphook several from the team that swept the Marlies for the Calder a couple years ago

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ Radar O’Rielly

    Yes by all means lets underestimate a team that is 7 points ahead.

  • Loric76

    Evening gang btw, now that I’m 10 posts in for the night lol

  • Shift_Disturber1

    Loric76Shift_Disturber1 Woooooooooo

  • Loric76

    Shift_Disturber1 Loric76 that CAL-VAN game has nothing on what’s coming tonight

  • Cosmos1973

    Is Bolland not a UFA this off season?

  • Shift_Disturber1

    Loric76  oh ya. Now you say hello. Pffffft

  • Loric76

    Radar O’Rielly better than underestimating the teams 7 spots below us

  • Shift_Disturber1

    Loric76Shift_Disturber1Yeah buddy. LET”S GO

  • Shift_Disturber1

    Cosmos1973Yes

  • Loric76

    Cosmos1973 unless Mark Fraser can skate circles around him after his return, I doubt he gets to UFA

  • Cosmos1973

    So we may have got very little from this deal….with the injury. Too bad…unless they can sign him…and I have no idea if he’s interested in staying, as there has really not been much made of this?

  • Dangle_My_Berries

    lets get the big W boys!

  • Cosmos1973

    Hadn’t heard that…hope they can…and fit Kulemin in as well.

    4-3 Leafs (OT)… have to miss this one because of minor hockey playoffs. GLG!

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

    TheCanucksnaphook ingy56 Much rather your score to be honest.

  • GreekGod

    Cosmos1973 
    I remember reading earlier in the year that Bolland is thrilled to be home and to be playing for the Leafs. I think Nonis will probably offer a one year deal probably the same amount as Bolland is making now… which gives Bolland another chance at proving himself and earning the extension and more money.

  • wiski

    Shift_Disturber1 wiski where is WW anyway

  • Loric76

    we’ve played them once before this season haven’t we?

    Tonight is the first of four meetings between the https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Leafs&src=hash and https://twitter.com/search?q=%23Lightning&src=hash. The Leafs are 7 points behind Tampa Bay for 2nd in the Atlantic.

  • peterbleafs

    Ive only heard of 3 of the Tampa forwards…we darn well better beat these guys!  And Aulie is now a forward?

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

    Loric76 Potential playoff preview guys…no mercy!

  • wiski

    Loric76 4evrblue both 4th liners thus far

  • Cosmos1973

    Power Forward!

  • Belfour20

    Question: Lets say Kessel gets smoked with a blind sided hit and Dion Phaneuf is on the ice, Does Dion automatically drop the gloves and go after the culprit? 

    As dumb as clarkson coming off the bench was in the pre-season, that was just his instinct to protect his teammate, does Dion show that kind of instinct to anyone of you?

    Just a question.

  • Shift_Disturber1

    ingy56   Good luck tonight Ingy

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

    Shift_Disturber1 ingy56 Thanks Shifty.

  • Belfour20

    TheCanucksnaphook Belfour20 LOL…I have not!  Don’t tell me what ive done or havent done with my life phook!!!

  • Shift_Disturber1

    CanuckUKinToronto Yeah or move him.  I see no need for him here any longer

  • peterbleafs

    CanuckUKinTorontoAgreed.  Waive him if need be.  Poor guy just sitting and collecting that NHL salary, its not fair to him.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Belfour20 I won’t answer this question out of protest for its stupidity.
