Discussion in 'Toronto Maple Leafs' started by Daisy Jane, Sep 27, 2013.
I've always liked Detroit and I'm really excited that we're in the same division. Allons-y Leafs!
Good job on thread title. At least we won't have the obligatory: What network is the game on? Or, its 7:15 yet why hasn't the game started?
Interesting to see who starts in net tonight.
Yeah I'm pretty pumped to have them in our division. Moreso now that they are gonna be moving on to a decline for the next couple years.
I hope its Bernier starting. I wanna see more of him.
Will be nice to have the Detroit-Toronto rivalry back. We had some good moments back in the days, would be sick to see a playoff series against them.
#teamreimer >>>> #teambernier
I want to see him finish a full game as a Leaf!
that would be good!
game one: injury
game two: fight
i'd assume it's going to be reimer tonight, bernier tomorrow?
I think the only disappointment for me is that, we'll never have a Leafs/Wings final. (dream match up).
Basically though the year we win the cup, I just see us going through Boston, Montreal, Wings, and then the Blackhawks.
I'll be at the game tonight. Hoping to see Bernier get the nod. Also, I'd like to see Rielly play, but would settle for the vast majority of the opening day roster, minus Kessel of course.
but Rielly will probably play Opening Night (nine games try out, and all, right?)
I hope so too. (re: opening night roster). I want to get the GDT finished this weekend, lmao and Carlyle makes it difficult to persume!
True, on Rielly.
I just hope we win, as drunk Wings fans are beyond obnoxious after they win. I hate seeing games there as a Leafs fan.
You have no sympathy from me LOL. We're Leaf fans we're the leaders when it comes drunk obnoxiousness, just get drunk yourself and give it back.
Tonight @ 7:30

Bon Appetit! Leafs Nation
Thanks bud, now I'm going to have to go out and get some hot wings for lunch
At the Louis ha, first time I heard someone say that instead of at the Joe.
Leafs Begin Home-And-Home With Wings
Remember the HNIC game a few years ago with the crazy crowd fight?
Yeahh.... that started because some a-hole threw a beer at my cousin after we scored. Needless to say, opposing fans are only safe in Detroit at Tigers games.
I've been to many Leafs games (and others) at JLA, and never had a problem as a Leafs fan. I've say both in the bowl, and back when my Dad worked at Hiram Walker's in their suite. I have thought seen and heard of my fair share of fights in the stands.
No fans are better/worse than any other. I went to Carolina for the conf finals in 2002 and some drunk Leafs fan was trying to fight a couple different people in the parking lot after the game. Just had to shake my head at the idiot.
If you behave yourself, there shouldn't be a problem. If you get obnoxious and over do it, you are asking for a problem.
I hope they go with these pairings:
Here is a general Leafs/Wings question..... not sure if anybody knows, but I was curious:
Back when they played on a regular basis against each other, the Leafs usually flew into Windsor, and just bussed it over to Detroit, and would stay in Windsor if necessary.
Does anyone know for sure, if the Leafs currently would fly into Windsor? It sure is a lot closer to the JLA, than Detroit Metro, and only a 40 min or so flight. Probably easier to clear customs via bus than a plane too?
Also, I think they used to try to stay in Canada as much as possible.
The lineups that we see this game and our last will likely indicate what kind of roster we will be seeing opening night, can't wait to see who's playing.
Also I'm done work at 7, so home in time for the game
Wish he would start getting the chemistry going for game one...
