Playing out the string.

Groan noise.

Ashton finally gets a chance up the lineup.

… Interesting.

@jonasTSN1050: Carlyle: "We felt that this group...would be a better hockey club than we had last year and I don’t think we proved that."

@jonasTSN1050: Randy Carlyle said feelings right now range from "numb and shock" to "extremely disappointed" to "embarrassed". "All those things."

To All Good Night.. Because for me it was a good night. I can take solace in the fact that the real truth was out there for all to see. And we have gained some good draft position. Not having to make the most out of a Gauthier, but a chance for some talent.

I still bleed blue and white, and I am extremely proud to be associated with all you great MLHS posters. Look for the silver lining because eventually it will bE Stanley coming home.

Good night all, and in all, a good night!

Reimer did not and will not win a game since January, so its the last of Reimer. He was facing 35-40 shots a game, he was Carlyle sacrificial lamb, this season

Okay guys and gals, gotta go get some work done. Because i've been reading this site way too fucking much, and have basically done no work.

Oh, and coffee's on and i gotta reload the vape.

Don't jump yet, folks!

John Shannon talking about how Leafs still have to sign RFA Jonathon Bernier this off-season. Hahah how does this guy have a job, can't even do simple fact checking before going on air.

Currently watching the season finale of Justified. There's been 2 deaths in the first 3 minutes. Still less of a bloodbath than that nonsense tonight.

I wish they would convert Gardiner to a forward. The other teams always back off when he has the puck and allow him space to penetrate. This is a waste of a offensive talent. Way to go RC. You held him back this year too. Like the announcers in Tampa commented, you can't teach offence, it's a natural talent but you can always teach defence. You have failed to teach defence and you have cut the nut sacks, off your offence! Good Bye!!!

By their internal metrics Leafs had 18 pts, 3 teams passed them MT @mirtle: Leafs got only 4 points in the last 26 days. 8 teams passed them

I hope Phanuef is playing injured , he looks so slow and confused, the last month or so.

Quite frankly I think Dion should be traded this summer. Much like with RC, if Dion gets off to a rough start next year it's gonna get big time ugly for him. Larry Murphy ugly.

Un-fucking real, Carlyle is just clueless.

Phaneuf has an 85 I.Q. What do you expect? 


Every NHLer I've ever spoken with said he has awful hockey sense, can't pass,  and terrible foot speed

@Wilbur  

I know it doesn't sound as bad now because we just missed the playoffs but if management listened to the fans we would be the worst team in the league forever 

Wilbur

@Bruffins @Wilbur  Oh, I don't want the fans running the team but every now and then these things happen and I think Dion is the kind of lightening rod that this can happen with. I'd get out ahead of it. Furthermore, I think we need a BIG shake up and I don't think that should be Phil at this point.

@Bruffins @Wilbur      .MLSE should hold focus groups with fans and see which ones are crazy and which ones actually have good ideas.

@Wilbur @Bruffins  

Until we fix other problems, whatever D-man replaces Phaneuf will be hated and this pattern will go on and on

@Bruffins @FrankFerrant@Wilbur   oh for sure but that's why you have a good screening process to cast out the crazies through the course of like... 4 or 5 pre-focus groups. it's not a bad idea if done right, but it would be a very desperate move on their part haha
