  1. Couldn't agree more J2! Nice to see Paul Coffee get a mention too, as he was one of the best of all time IMHO. Fond memories - and I'm a dyed in the wool Leafs fan. (Might have something to do with my home town - Brantford) Alexander Graham Bell, Wayne Gretzky, and me! Must be something in the water.
  2. My favourite time of year. Nice sunny but cool days on the golf course. NFL goes into full swing. Fed-Ex playoffs on the PGA Tour. Baseball starting the play-offs, and hockey starting training camp. Woot! Woot!
  3. Just having a bit of a cool spell and it makes me think of fall hockey!! Let's get 'er goin' eh!?
  4. subject already posted. Sorry my bad
  5. " The NHL tested the positions during its exhibition games in China prior to this season, and at the 2018 All-Star Game in Tampa." So, how does one "test" the position of an ad painted on the ice? The "skate over it trip test"? The fall down on the ice test to see if it rubs off onto the snazzy NHL uniforms? Does black in the ads cause the infamous "disappearing puck" disaster?? Do the Chinese actually know what an ice ad is?? Sorry guys but some of the CRUD that flows out of the NHL's offices - one wonders.....
  6. LOL. I use the standings - you know, wins, losses and that other one - which escapes me at the moment....
  7. I think the Leafs will run away with this division. "Poor" defence or not. (I don't think we're as bad as advertised anyway). Note that winning the division is not a guarantee of going anywhere in the playoffs. Two totally different games, and here I give Tampa the nod. Just gut feel. In the end Tampa is a tougher team mentally. Tough wins in hockey.
  8. A real shocker. I figured there was no way he opts for TO. Going to be great season next year.........
  9. The team with no heart. The ship with no navigator. The player this team really needs isn't on the current roster. You bring back JVR, Bozak has to go. Yah, I know that sounds awful negative, it also rings very true from a fan who has watched the Leafs win 4 Stanley Cups. Toughness - both physical and mental. That's what this team needs.
  10. The following are the opinions of this author only .... Andersen - not at the level we need to become a serious contender. Bozak - has to go. Leafs will never amount to a hill of beans with Bozak as its #2 centre. We have one true defenceman only - Reilly. Zach Hymen??? Better check your spelling there .... Matthews. I very much don't like what I saw in the last playoff series. He was non-existant. It's very concerning. Total lack of mental toughness as a team. Team has no ID and no character. Oh, and a squeaky new rookie GM.
  11. Well, I'm going to just toss this out there to see if it has any traction. I think the way Vegas has succeeded is a result of having a terrific goaltender (who seriously had his pride ruffled by being "let go" and therefor is motivated to play his arse off) and the poor (mediocre at best) level of play and talent in the NHL. The Vegas nights have no 'stars' at all on their roster of out skaters. Not one. Due to the "set up" of the draft, there were none to be had (with the exception of Fleury). But there was an entire team (teams, actually) of middle-of-the-road players. The fact that a mediocre team can win over teams in the NHL based on the superstar-and-others model is not surprising at all. There is simply not enough talent to go around thanks to the hard cap. You spend for your superstar (if you are lucky enough to even get to bid on one) and you have very little left over. Not enough for any team to dominate or separate themselves from the pack. Makes for very boring hockey IMHO. Bring back the years of the great teams. Who am I kidding? Like that's gonna happen. BTW, I am now cheering for the Golden Knights.....
  12. I never believed it, WOW. I think they should have adopted the orphan in stead of hiring him. It would have been cheaper.
  13. Welcome aboard the train to nowhere, JOe!!! Glad to have you.
  14. I believe John Chayka of the Arizona Coyotes is even younger.
