Discussion in 'Toronto Maple Leafs' started by Daisy Jane, Nov 20, 2018.
This. The Oilers can’t develop anyone.
When a player in the top 10 busts, I always blame the scouting and the player. When that player goes elsewhere and flourishes, then I'll consider blaming the team's handling of the player. Elite talent stands out even with 4th lines and in the AHL. For example: there's no way that Edmonton ruined Nail Yakupov after he got to play in a few more stable NHL environment and still sucked.
It is very interesting that Columbus' very clever GM, a Finnish born and trained hockey mind, wasn't tempted to pick either Puljujarvi or Juolevi over Dubois. Doubtlessly he knew these two highly rated players well and could interview both in their native tongue.
Laine btw has scored 3 goals in his past 17 games.
Didn't know where to post this as I'm not the thread starting type. However, I'm surprised this site doesn't have a memorabilia section??
I've got a set of BIGM27 Ontario licence plates signed by Frank Mahovlich himself and want to show them off!!
Who knows of any sites other than an EBAY I should be checking out to see what kind of interest is out there?
Just media guy wants to get more attentions and clicks. Even diehard Nucks fans know Pettersson is not even close to McDavid or Matthews or even Marner.
Vancouver is a good team and will only get better when Boeser, Pettersson and Horvat hitting their prime as well as guys like Demko coming up. But to say Pettersson is the second coming of Wayne is just wrong.
There is a general "Toronto Maple Leaf discussion thread" in the main section you can post them there, it maybe on the 2nd page
Mtl lost 1-0....good to see them still out of a playoff spot....
Flames with another win now 2 points ahead of the Leafs.
Lindholm had 50 points in 44 games this year. Skinner 28 goals and a ppg (1 point shy).
2-3rds of a 1st line. Seems to be exactly what Carolina is missing.
Had a dream last night that we were playing the Habs in the Stanley Cup finals (I know makes no sense lol) and that we were down by 3 with 5 min left in game 7. What a nightmare
I had this one dream that started with Matt Frattin missing on a breakaway. I kinda forget the rest but I don't think it went well.
That actually sounds like we have them exactly where we'd want them.
That was NOT a dream. It was 4-1. Frattin scoring on that breakaway makes it 5-1!
Frattin scores, and Reimer makes 1 extra save, and we're golden to go on to the next round. Oh well!
Looks like JVR is having a terrible season. Can't say I'm surprised. That guy is so one-dimensional and was put in the perfect position to excel. He can score in front of the net and that is basically all he brings to the table. It was hilarious seeing everyone on the mainboards saying that Tavares will not be able to replace the offence from JVR, Bozak and Komarov.
he was injured for a bit but I don't think anyone is missing him here
Agreed... 7 million was and is absurd for JVR.
i hate the Bruins so much, they will be 2 back of us after tonight having played one more game. We need to go on a win streak and beat these guys on Saturday.
Feeling's mutual. I will be really pissed if they manage to lose on Saturday. I hope they come out ready to send a message because we need those 2 pts. in a bad way
It's going to be Boston again in the first round. Our only hopes of avoiding it are Buffalo or catching TB?
****ing Bruins just love to go on unstoppable tears in the second half of the season under Cassidy. Saturday is going to be a tough game, hope we have Freddy.
Need to get home ice if we're going to have any chance of beating them for once. They'll be only 2 points back after tonight. Come on Freddy get back soon.
I'd be good with another team even just for the sake of change, but I think a rematch with the Bruins looks like a real possibility as well. Pittsburgh was a thorn in Washington's side for a time, until last season when they overcame that and went the extra mile. I'm hoping the roster changes from last season to this season and home ice can turn the tide if the series happens.
I agree. The battle for second place will be good. It may come down right to the wire. Oh boy.
Buffalo's winning tonight too by the looks of it and will be only 4 points back of us.
Leafs will beat the bruins in 6 or 7, with or without home ice lol. Dont know why anyone is nervous to play them.
