@Pent_House PH: Interested in which current Marlies you think have a strong chance of sticking with the Big Club this year.
@Pent_House @Waiting4LSC PH, thanks. I truly respect your views on the Marlies, hence the question. I share your views on the defensive side, but was questioning whether any of the forwards have a shot given the recent pick ups, all of whom I see as having a stronger claim (but this judgement is based on not seeing any Marlies games). Can I rephrase my question to "Who do you think has the best chance to beat any of these newbies out and stick with the Big Club?". Always appreciate your posts.
With Shanahan's Detroit style philosophy I say maybe Granberg and no forwards.
What do they say about prospects int Detroit?
"We like them a little over-ripe."
That's why they bought in the extras on 1 year contracts. They did not want to rush the kids. They will get callups during the year and the real chance comes next year
what they throw you in the hoosegow for? homophobic comments?
@TheGhostofPhook Ghost.... need some love for Leo the Leaf-Heart
@mcloki Are you suggesting this is Lieweke's fault? :)
@Waiting4LSC @mcloki No I'm saying that TFC has no hope left. MLSE is picking homeless n=bums off the street of Toronto to run the team. Upper management has no one left that give s a shit about the team, no wonder they are playing demoralized. TFC fans love the team and all they see is management beating the team like it was a red headed step child. they show it a little love and then in the middle o a playoff run, they RUN their stupid mouths and piss of the coach and players. The Jays did the same thing by not getting anyone. And how long have the Leafs ignored what any fucking grade 1 student knows is wrong with the Leafs and fixed things. It's getting frustrating.
@wiski Pilot training was the cause. Such a terrible tragedy that could so easily have been prevented. The Hockey community should not forget.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan finally vape time
So there are long lines ups at something called Fan Fest
How long would the lines be if the team actually fucking won something
One of these days, the NHL will put another team will put another team in the GTA (whatever that is) and Leafs management will have to actually put a winner on the ice to make money
@Zep2 No they won't they will make money regardless.
I don't know what has happened here, if it it's a glitch then I apologize but if someone does something worthy of being "banned" I think an email or dm to their twitter account (whichever is applicable) with a simple acknowledgement of the fact and a brief explanation given.
Thanks. Have a great day folks.
That is all
@ShiftyD Loving the solidarity here. Maybe Wiski can set up a site Solidarity movement (Lech W style :) )
@ShiftyD I think it was a glitch Phook. yesterday your comments said you have -4 today it's back to 16 thousand. I say glitch. And I think the Powers that be are busy this weekend. Just goes to show they need to add maybe 3 more moderators and posters to help the flow of posts. The question is, who among us is willing to stand up and do something. I can usually get some graphic work in for the guys but posting would be tough for me. Just a suggestions. it'll get pretty hectic around here in the next 2 weeks.
yea when I got banned I had no idea I was banned for a while
Not to beat a dead horse but I thought it was a bug yesterday seeing all the Grinch likes on comments. The regulars are what makes this site the best, even more so than the amazing articles. I don't know all the information but I hope regulars are given more leeway and understanding in decisions regarding moderation given their track record here. Also they deserve an explanation of what they may have done wrong (I think all the community does). I'm a full time lurker, part time poster but I see the value they bring here.
I hope the Gilbey and Phook situations get resolved quickly because they make this site a better place to be
... Even if Phook does have a creepy manboy crush on Ritchie
@TheGhostofPhook If Carlyle thinks it's a good idea, doesn't that prove that it isn't?
@TheGhostofPhook You still thinking the Brolldozer makes the team?
@4evrblue Davidson seems like a tough nut to me . I'd bet on them letting him sit for a while
Seen a lot of people believing that there must be some guarantee in regards to Kontiola on the roster considering he bought himself out. I don't thin that's necessarily the case. Maybe they might give him a bit more time to adjust and fit in than most, but that might only mean that he tags along as an extra. He knows he only has one more shot at being an NHL player and he knows that he'll definitely be signed by a KHL team if it fails. I think that alone is reason enough to buy out his current contract. The Leafs just told him that he'll get a good shot at a bottom 6 spot, not that he's guaranteed one.
