    I’m guessing player agents and out of work coaches make up 50% of the viewing audience tonight.

    He looks completely different now compared to that old footage

  • TheCanucksnaphook

  • charlieb83

    Please someone summarize the important parts. Way too lazy to watch it all.

  • Savo43

    Belfour20/JB-45  Leiweke has a lot more rings than Phook. He may say some outrageous things, but not without good reason.

  • JMAC17

    charlieb83  Liked his response to the why win when your making money question…around the 10min mark

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    TheCanucksnaphook Savo43Belfour20/JB-45 LOL I don’t think that qualifies

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Next question:  Why is he doing all of this media with 4 games left until we make the playoffs?

    How about you shut your mouth until after playoffs.

  • Pent_House

    regent’s park Lol this guy kills me with the names sometimes

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    TheCanucksnaphook  Nonis hasnt done any media at all

  • Jmessih

    He came in guns blazing, trying to show he is the new sherif in town. Quickly realized that was potentially not the best thing to do, and took heat for it (rightfully so), but since then I do not think he has put a foot wrong and has really been great for MLSE.

  • reenergized

    TheCanucksnaphook  there wasn’t a lot of leafs talk ,,,, mostly values direction and some funny shit …

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Belfour20/JB-45 Maybe this is why I am cranky.

  • Shift_Disturber1

    I didn’t like some of the “quotes” as posted in isolation as tweets, but on the whole I like it.  We will get a better feeling on the genuineness when this season comes to a close and what moves are and aren’t made.

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    TheCanucksnaphook Belfour20/JB-45  Probably, I prefere to hear from the main man myself

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    As much as the Jays suck I still love opening day at the SKYDOME, yaaaa I said it!!!

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Belfour20/JB-45  you should go !!

  • Pent_House

    Belfour20/JB-45  too bad the domes not opening today

  • Savo43

    TheCanucksnaphook  He’s not there talking about the Leafs, he’s talking about mlse. He clearly states in the interview that coming into the season he didn’t think the Leafs needed big fixing after the direction they were headed last year, he stated that perhaps thats not the case and we’ll find out in the next 4 games. He also said that the reason other Leaf teams have failed is because they’re afraid of the pressure, he said he’s not afraid and that the Leafs will find ppl that THRIVE under that pressure, and he went on to say that Bernier is one of those guys, and he knew that from his time in LA.

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    TheCanucksnaphook Belfour20/JB-45  Dont tell me how to live my fucking life!

  • Jmessih

    Belfour20/JB-45 Couldn’t agree more, that atmosphere is electric on opening weekend, opening day is crazy!!!

  • Shift_Disturber1

    TheCanucksnaphook   Probably more to do with the TFC announcement recently,  Raptors doing well, TFC off to a good start….just guesses, Leafs weren’t the focus of the interview

  • Cameron19

    The only thing i think he can do to actually help the on-ice product is somehow convince Stamkos to sign here two years from now, without committing any kind of tampering. Beyond that, what can he do except preach “accountability” at the levels off the ice?  And even there, you can definitely over-manage your off-ice group. I’m not a huge Nonis fan, but any GM needs some time to see his vision come to fruition.

  • Jmessih

    Would anyone take a stab at Orpik, 33 years old UFA

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Cameron19  Thank you.

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    Pent_House Belfour20/JB-45  Well thats because we dont know if winter will ever fucking end in this city.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jmessih  no.

  • Cameron19

    Also pisses me off that we put a huge Habs homer in charge of HNIC. As if we Leaf fans haven’t been punished enough.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Cameron19  lots of hate…i like it.

  • Belfour20/JB-45

    Jmessih Belfour20/JB-45  I love seeing the place so full and filled with all blue and white. wish the ACC was like that all year

  • Jmessih

    Cameron19 Marquee free agents will probably be his game when it comes to hockey (he did the same with TFC).

  • Jay_Berg

    Cameron19  I like Strombo despite that. I think he will be solid. I met him once, seemed really nice. He’s also like 5’4″ just a little guy.

  • Cameron19

    Jmessih Cameron19  Pretty hard to do with hockey though.
