Game Highlights – Toronto 3 vs. Texas 1

Steve Spott Post Game Press Conference

  • Jimmie Dorey

    ~Keon Terrible deal for Toronto if they’re only getting the first overall and Jovo.

  • Black_Hawk

    Josh Rimer has a rumour of E.Staal for Phaneuf, better then Bergs

  • Black_Hawk

    Good for the marlies

  • Cloud09

    ~Keon Lol, all that build up and it’s Phaneuf, Kadri, and the 8th for Jovanoski and the 1st? Keep smoking the good stuff Howard.

  • Cloud09

    ~Keon That said, I’d move a lot for that 1st overall so it’s not out of the question to give up some big pieces, but that is just nuts for Florida’s pick.

  • Jimmie Dorey

    ~Keon The deal could be expanded to get more (one of their young centers, Bjugstad, Trochek or gulp…;….. Barkov or a pick second rounder next year or third this year) but I fear the Leafs might see it as freeing up Phaneuf’s term and cap hit in exchange for Jovo while Kadri is the price for moving up eight slots.  
    Either way it’s doesn’t sound too enticing as what Berger is stating..

  • Great Dane

    Lovely to see the Marlies are battling back.

    With the eerie silence from the Leafs they most be working on something. There are too many stories from other teams so my guess is that Shanahan and Nonis are working on moving some big parts of the Leafs.

    Rimer and Berger can have the wrong parts of a potential deal, but this is obviously something that is coming from other teams and not the Leafs.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    ~Keon Id take Staal.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Nice work Marlies !!!  

    That was a COMPLETE game and on the road in an elimination scenario.  Absolutely love a team that wont roll over and go away.

    Morning gang

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Loric76 Morning.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    I dont see anything about Staal for Dion….any body care to provide a link?

  • mcloki

    Morning Gents. Bit early for me .

  • Loric76

    TheCanucksnaphook the only Staal rumor I’ve heard it he one Jordan made up – Franson + Reimer for E. Staal I think it was.  Maybe our 1st was included as well.

  • mcloki

    ~Keon It’s a stupid deal. How much will it cost Florida. The cash doesn’t make sense.

  • Loric76

    SkyDome is 25 years old today.  I thought it was older.

  • mcloki

    Loric76 Me too for some reason.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    mcloki Early for me too but the golf course is calling.

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Loric76 TheCanucksnaphook Jordan is a goon.

  • Jimmie Dorey

    Percy looks incredibly slow at the 1:35 mark of the game highllights

  • TheCanucksnaphook

    Jimmie Dorey Smart kid on the ice.  He and Granberg are both rookies in the AHL but becoming a very reliable pairing that Spott can trust in almost any situation.

  • Jimmie Dorey

    TheCanucksnaphook Jimmie Dorey He still looked bad after turning and chasing the Stars player (really bad).

    So no more Bowen for Leafs games?

    Since beginning of the 2013 season Quick has played 125 combined games in the reg season/playoffs. He’s stopped 2938 of 3218 for a .912 sv %

    Reimer’s averaged 31 shots against per night & Quick 25.7. I wonder how maligned Quick would be if he were a member of the blue and white?

  • Loric76

    Doesn’t matter – Bernier is the best of all three

  • Burtonboy

    Loric76 I think that crew is for the National broadcasts Loric . Hopefully Bowen will still do local market games.

  • Loric76

    Burtonboy Loric76 Hopefully

  • MaxwellHowe

    Love how Spott pumps up his players, gives credit where credit is due and makes a case for their advancement to the NHL.  He appreciates his main focus is to get young players developed for the NHL. 
    Holland and Granberg will be on the Leafs next year.  And I don’t know what else MacIntyre can do to demonstrate he is ready for duty in the NHL

  • MaxwellHowe

    Loric76 sad truth is, it was a relic almost as soon as it was complete.  MLB loves the simpler throwback stadiums now.

  • Loric76

    MaxwellHowe Holland, Granberg, D’Amigo, MacWilliam, MacIntyre.  All ready to come up, but there’s only so many spaces to fill.  Will be interesting to see what happens.

  • Burtonboy

    MaxwellHowe Loric76 The Skydome is a palace compared to the Big Owe . What a monstrosity that thing is

  • MaxwellHowe

    Loric76 MaxwellHowe oh there are several FAs who know where to find the door

  • MaxwellHowe

    Burtonboy MaxwellHowe Loric76 Absolutely.  That stadium ruined the Expos (not to mention crippled my man Andre Dawson)

  • Loric76

    MaxwellHowe Loric76 Can Clarkson somehow as if by magic be one of them?

  • Burtonboy

    MaxwellHowe Burtonboy Loric76 Plus there was no worse place to watch a game . The stands sweep upwards in a gentle slope instead of the steeper incline you see in most parks . Depth perception was all fucked up for fans. Ugly to say the least

  • Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs

    Loric76 
    Lol yeah but Riemer faced 7 games v Boston (cant remember if he played all of them) in the play offs and THATS IT.
    Yes the stats are comparable numbers for numbers but LA have played alot more against tougher opposition.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Tonite, Marlies vs Stars, game 7.  AND also tonite, St. John’s Ice caps vs Penguins, game 6, Ice caps have a 3-2 game lead. 
    Bring the Marlies to Newfoundland!

  • Loric76

    Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Loric76 it’s arguable that Quick has had a much more solid team in front of him tho.  Better D, and more defensive responsibility out of the forwards.

  • Loric76

    MaxwellHowe Marlies come to town, play 4-7 games, both teams leave.

  • MaxwellHowe

    Loric76 MaxwellHowe we’ll get the St. John’s maple Leafs back again one day, just you wait and see

  • MaxwellHowe

    Has Spott ever responded to a loss with the use of the word “mindboggling” or a synonym of that word?  Seems like he always puts his finger on the problem and responds instantly.  After the last game he complained about the forwards executing.  Then:
    “Leivo, you just scored 20 plus goals as a rookie?  Yeah, you’re cut”.

  • Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs

    Loric76 Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs 
    There is that of course. 
    Personally I think Riemer is a better shot stopper with lightning reflexes but his rebounds and reaction to the second shot is very poor. It doesnt help having Gunnarsson in front of him and reacting like a tiger (lol)  and clearing the loose puck in front of him.
    The Leafs clearing a loose puck ha ha ha ha ha I crack myself up.!!!

  • Great Dane

    MaxwellHowe Win game seven   LOL

  • wendelsway1

    Good Morning Gents…..just hoping the Marlies can do it all over again tonight…GO MARLIES GO!!!

  • Loric76

    Zeus_WilliamMapleLeafs Loric76 laughing yourself (and me) to drink already…it’s barely 8am lol

  • Loric76

    wendelsway1 morning WW.  They can and they will.  I lost faith after the horrible showing in game 5, but was restored after last nights domination

  • Loric76

    MaxwellHowe Spott hasn’t worn tight helmets before.  His brain has not overheated, he hasn’t suffered any concussions, his IQ has not dipped to that of a ficus plant.  I bet he’s a toastmaster too.
