  1. That he made a big mistake. I just can't see Nylander ever earning his huge salary. Trading him will leave us holding at least half of his salary and not getting a 7.9 million dollar player back.. Having an eye for talent is not something that can be taught. Maybe we should have gone for Mark Hunter to replace Lou L.
  2. I have changed my opinion of young Kyle Dubas' over this signing.
  3. I would call this the soccer rule. (as in no body contact). The first "offence" is not even a penalty IMHO. Besides, no new rule is required at all if you just let the refs call penalties as they see them. The infraction in the first replay would be, at most 2 minutes for interference, (a penalty which is already in the book). The second offence could be given as 4 minutes for interference again, using a rule which already exists and can already be called by a competent referee. I would also assess the "victim" with a two minute diving penalty. Creating a new rule will result in a rash of unnecessary, exaggerated calls. Edit: one of the biggest issues I have with this kind of micromanagement, is that there is absolutely no onus on the players with the puck to "keep their head up". Come on, IIHF this is hockey - or it's supposed to be. Leave well enough alone......
  4. LOL. Absolutely unbelievable. I'm speechless. ps - I think Hyman should go through the full appeal process. I don't see how given he's a first-time offender, and looking at the other 2-games suspensions of the past, that anyone could consider this a fair judgement. Yah, I'm a Leafs fan, but even so....
  5. I'll just say I've seen a lot worse......
  6. Matthews is a real bull. All we need now is to protect him....
  7. 6 years at 7 million?? I would not have guessed that. Truth can be stranger than fiction.
  8. Did you notice there was no one to greet him at the airport? For shame! Just some go-fer underling assistant to the assistant. I hear that due to the extremely high salary Nylander is getting, that Uber driver was all they could afford. They had to strap Willy's luggage to the roof of the Citroen....
  9. Yah, I've been saying that since he was drafted. I'm not a fan of that guy. I hope he misses this season and we can get a trade done next season.
  10. I voted for "Sweden" because that's where I'd like to see him end up. I don't like this guy at all despite whatever 'talent' he has. He is a bona-fide prima donna. The type that causes all kinds of problems on a team due to his 'me first', selfish attitude. He flies by, doesn't back check, cherry picks, takes all the credit for goals when someone else has in fact done all the work. I hope he holds out until Dec. 1st and finds that Dubas has traded him to Carolina or Phoenix where he can fade into the background at 6 million a year. Good riddance!
  11. Yah, I don't get the schedule-makers. Knowing how the NHL likes to micromanage everything, I can't help but believe that they are involved. They want the big-market U.S. teams to have the stage all to themselves on the weekend maybe?
  12. It's those damned Broons!! We can't beat them with a stick (neither a regular stick nor a hockey stick !) They are in our head(s)! Almost makes me want to call for a pox on their house! Nevermind, I'm alright now.......
  13. If the referees do their job, Lucic doesn't have to do anything. End of play with a penalty, possible suspension. Not a big fan of Lucic but he did what he should have done IMHO. I voted "no".
  14. I voted "no". Just one of those things - a hockey play. And I'm not one of Malkin's fans.

    I see where Hobie is coming from. Marner actually reminds me of my all-time favourite Leaf - Dave Keon. I also agree with flyercanuck - Marner is no Gretzky or Keon but it sure is nice to have players who even remind us of past great players. So, all we need now is a Darryl Sittler and we're good to go ....
