  • ConnorCrisp

    Can’t wait to see Leo in action!

  • Komas Taberle

    Phil Kessel, best player in the world right now.

  • Komas Taberle

    ConnorCrisp  
    Hope he score a hat trick on Price, but we win 4-3.

  • ConnorCrisp

    I kinda hope he makes Crosby cry like a bitch, but we win obviously

  • JMAC17

    Huge game…Boys better come together today!

  • ConnorCrisp

    THANK YOU KESSEL!

    Nice new logo

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Lets go Canada !!!

  • Cameron19

    These are the best lines we’ve had, in my opinion. Loving the look of that top line. Bergeron should allow Crosby to loosen his play a little bit, while Crosby’s never really had a big power forward winger to work with before.  Should be good.

  • Marpole_Leafs

    Nash out? Or is he the extra forward?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Cameron19  Excited to see this game.

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

    Could we please add a little pressbox to the lineup section with Soupcan’s jersey hanging there?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Also nice to see kunitz nowhere near Crosby.

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

    TheCanucksnaphook  Who is this Crosby fellow that gets so much attention?

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    ingy56 Some guy who canadians love to anoint the hockey god.  When he is a talented but whiney pussy.

  • Marpole_Leafs

    TheCanucksnaphook  I am surprised Kunitz is drawing in over Nash

  • wiski

    ConnorCrisp  Seen him play their first game he was quite active lots of shots.

  • maple1967leafs

    going to grab a quick nap,Seeing curlings on, should be easy to fall asleep

  • Cameron19

    The Truth Hurts  I have the facts actually. You are the one who has to make shit up. The numbers are all right there in the advanced stats – you can go see who he has matched up against night in and night out since coming here.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Marpole_Leafs Oh its a horse shit decision….but they cant blast crosbys buddy off the team just yet.  He wont play in the medal rounds.

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

    TheCanucksnaphook ingy56  Ahhh I see, thought he was like a mascot or something given all the attention he gets and all the commercials he’s on.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    ingy56 TheCanucksnaphook  may as well be.  Little fuck.

  • wendelsway1

    TheCanucksnaphook  I’d rather he be nowhere near the team, myself…lol   Hey, maybe if we shit on Kunitz enough…….he’ll pull a Carter……there is always hope  :)

  • mcloki

    Maybe put the jersey on a Tim Hortons cup. Seems to be what they drink up there.

  • Zep2

    Cant win an argument, start name calling. For a minute there I thought I was on HOCKEY Buzz

    Next thing people  posting pictures of fat people in thongs.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    wendelsway1 maybe.  All of these guys are solid hockey players.  I just never liked Kunitz…..EVER.

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

    mcloki  Anywhere but on the ice and I’m good.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Zep2  There will be none of that around here !  That is a great way to ruin a website.  

    *moderator in training*

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

    Zep2  We never do that here, hot chicks in thongs only.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Rask vs Price….I am PUMPED.

  • Komas Taberle

    Zep2  
    I wish Cam and The truth Hurts would rent a barn!

  • WendelDougie

    ConnorCrisp No…thank you Boston….fools that they are. Is there anyone on the planet who would trade Kessel for Seguin/Hamilton straight up??? I didn’t think so…

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    The Truth Hurts  Have a great day !!

  • Cameron19

    The Truth Hurts Stay the fuck out then.

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

    maple1967leafs  I’d rather watch curling than some sport decided by judging.

  • mcloki

    If your the new moderator, I’m screwed. Lol

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    hmmm the people I go to the Leafs games with are at the Season Seat Holder Skating party at the ACC.  Wonder which Leafers are there??   And more importantly, why I am NOT?

  • wendelsway1

    The Truth Hurts  No need to leave, HH…..we don’t all have to agree, but should be able to co-exist.  Just agree to disagree and move on. :)

  • mcloki

    Cole sounds glorious in these old clips. It’s sad a whole generation off ?Leaf fans are going to have to relive the mediocre play calling of Hughson and Simpson.

  • GeorgeCastanza

    The Truth Hurts   how ironic

  • jimmyg65

    Are TSN or CBC not streaming the Canada-Finland game?

  • mcloki

    I want to see a Slovenia Canada game.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    mcloki  I am in training…trying to show the “Leader” that I am ready for the added responsibility.

  • wiski

    jimmyg65  in 13 mins cbc will have it

  • The Truth Hurts

    As always WW you get it.

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

    The Truth Hurts  Bahhh, stick around…
