@DamoSpin: Mike Babcock has WJC gold, Olympic gold, SC ring & is unbeaten in Sochi. Yet some claim he is clueless. That's CAN hockey "culture."
Lets all take a moment and remember 4-1/2 years ago Phil scoring his first goal as a Leaf. He selfishly took a goal away from Jason Blake but I don't think anyone would care nowadays. Long Live Phil and Go Leafs Go!
"I always turn to the sports pages first, which record people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures" - Chief Justice Earl Warren
Phil thought the puck was going to stop, go backwards and land squarely in the goalies crest.So rather than risk that, he tapped it in.
More important, lets look back and remember how horrible 2/3rds of our 1st line was.
Mitchell and Blake?? No wonder we finished second last, haha!!
@Bring the Cup Home it feels good, after years of arguing with people who blindly follow the MSM's narrative of him being "one dimensional" or the leafs lost in that trade
@.JVR. Change does a body good.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan I'm looking at starting that show next looks really good. I'm starting season 4 of boardwalk empire now. Great show
@Dangle_My_Berries He's obviously never read a Toronto paper
sucks for Seguin... I don't hate him now that he is off Boston. Actually rooting for him so Boston's second trade looks bad on them
@Murph2417 Always loved me some Alpine beer.
@Murph2417 Maritimer for sure!
@Murph2417 you need to fill it with ice from the vending machine in the hallway
@Murph2417 Good for you, Murph.....I would expect no less from someone your age....Cheers to beers!
@Murph2417 with the weather so nice here on the isle may as well keep going
@peterbleafs me too...
Know the feeling only too well. Gave up a long time ago, as I only discuss Leafs on this site. So sad MSM is able to mind control a huge section of the population without question. In the end the masses will see.....
I don't think this will have any effect on my body, haha ;)
BTW, what the hell is it susposed to be?
@Murph2417 PS. Alpine is great beer, whenever I know of someone heading out east I get them to bring me back a case
@Waiting4LSC More and more people are waking up to this fact. They tried the same tactics to get a war going with Iran but people weren't buying it. There's a really good documentary that came out recently that sheds light on the state of our media and how we arrived to this point. I highly recommend it, it's called Shadows Of Liberty
Sir, I smiled as I read the post. Nail on the Head. The power of the Media is supposed to be checked, but sadly even that is corrupted. I am so glad this site brings knowledgeable people together.
@Waiting4LSC If MSM can convince a nation to go to war over "weapons of mass destruction" they can convince people that one of the best players in the game sucks
Hmmm, I guess I must have jumped into a time machine and went forward many years, because I don't recall ever being called an old far before, haha.
It also fucks up my MLHS Stars Award on the ESPN Keeper League, haha.
Yea, I don't really care either way, as it's just a logo, but I definitely think the old one was nicer.
