That crap by Duncan Keith last night was near the top of my list of chickenshit stickwork displays since I started watching in the early 60s. Drop your stick and stand up for yourself brave guy.

Why the fuck can't the Leafs ever tank properly and take elite players like Mackinnon?  Stupid MLSE and fans.

Pretty pathetic when you watch the games out East. The teams out West are hitting hard and playing gritty. Just really entertaining hockey.

The Avalanche is the most exciting team in hockey.

Looking at Mackinnon really gives me another reason to trade up in the draft. Come on Leafs.

Minny just can't seem to mount any kind of real response

Virtanen showed off his shot vs Sweden, 2nd goal was especially impressive as it was a bullet that went bar down. #u18wc

Man I just been checking Broll and Devane's latest bouts. These guys are monsters, it will be a shame to not see one of them with the Leafs in the near future. Both can play and will always back the team. I noticed that Broll likes to engage, but a lot of it is "staged fighting" while Devane's fights are mostly him stepping in when someone hits one of his teammates. I really respect his game. Not sure if anyone else noticed this?

Meh... Shannahan will bring in Yzerman to GM and Stamkos to center our top line in a couple years. Patience :)

@[BBirde]  It's awesome hockey. I haven't seen Colorado play this year, but they are so much fun to watch.

I actually don't think there is a good team in the East after Boston right now

@LeafFan15 I like that more then taking our first and packaging him in a package for a player, I just want our 1st for once, that kind of patience I can live with. I want our draft picks to become starts, not someone else's.

@LeafFan15  meh I dont think any of those guys are being touted as being close to mackinnon

He's got another 6 years at $5.75 per and has dropped to 4th line centre...

@ShiftyD @~Keon  Why are ppl surprised? Hockey players are the mouthiest fuckers in the world. They say shit in the game, doesn't mean they carry that mentality off the ice. I dont know how many players ive played against that laugh at the site of an injury. Not saying its ok, just saying that i'm sure Backes would say the same to Keith.

@Bruffins @[BBirde]  How bout the team thats up 1-0 on them right now? Detroit is a damn good team when they're healthy. Especially with Nyquist and Tatars emergence.

@Tim Horton @Jay31Problem is here can go way before  we get our chance to pick, as early as 6th or 7th.

@~Keon 4 goals , 3 assists, 146 PIM, -2 in 54 games played.Plays on the 4th line with Smithson. Not bad for a 1st full year in the Marlies I'd say and  I want to see what he can do in the playoffs too. I read an article where he talked about how much he hated being sent down to the Orland Solar Bears and how he promised to himself that will never happen again. The man is got Heart.

@~Keon Yep.That's gotta be 2 playoff games. They tend to treat them 2 for 1

Granted, but it was an open hit from the front...not from behind.  He had his head down (which he should know better...especially in the playoffs).

@LeafFan15 @Jay31  MLSE needs to go for Mcdavid next year then ;)

@Yan28 @Tim Horton @Jay31  6,7 will be Ehlers and Nylander.  Id be happy with Ehlers as well I think Virtanen has a better shot at being available, which is why I am getting my hopes up for him.

@~Keon Didn't look good this year, even in his bouts, not just on the ice.

@~Keon I am a big Orr fan, but he did nothing to prove his worth this year. Just a waste of a year for so many players this year, it's crazy. Orr is not this bad. I would pick Devane over McLaren, he's at least as good of a fighter and a better player for sure, plus he's younger and got more to prove.

@~Keon So, my question is who do you see making the team first Broll or Devane? Cause this year Devane was called up first. I know people are saying Bodie will make the 4th line next year, but I am not entirely convinced that's the case, if we need to develop young players and have the team gel then we should reward our prospects, so Bodie is a journeyman older player that had a solid year but that's it, his potential is nowhere near these 2 guys and he can't scrap whatsoever, I don't want a guy that supposed to have the team's back when needed (cause that has to part of his role if he's on a 4th line with D'amigo or Komarov let's say next year) get fed every time.
