Or just turtle like Marchand
Lol I can believe it.
I don't think leafs fans realize just how much of Canadian hockey Fandom is built entirely out of leafs hate.
Maybe stop trying to end guys careers by sticking out your knee then?
Deserved what he got.
The 5 game losing streak was a funny one. Campbell finally cooled off after a legendary record-setting 11 game win streak and some folks decided to write him off completely as a potential starter and claim the team "has been exposed".
He just thought Matthews also had day off. We had half team off!
The Leafs got a guy in the offseason to counter everyone's favorite criticism of the Leafs "they're soft and get pushed around" and when said player goes out to fulfill the purpose he was acquired for now it wasn't apparently fair because the guy who cheapshotted our guy doesn't like fighting?
No one sent Simmonds, he knows his job.
This is all I can think about after I read that dumb tweet haha
Pretty sure we've seen Leafs' in the last few years who have done something borderline or been suspended, and the other team's tough guys came at them.
I think it's a clear message that if you go after someone on his team, Simmonds will come at you.
Simmonds let it be known before the season and many times in media scrums he wasn’t going to let this stuff go.
To quote from one of my favourite movies “Dr. Strangelove: Of course, the whole point of a Doomsday Machine is lost, if you *keep* it a *secret*! Why didn't you tell the world, eh?”
I *feel bad* for Edler. I feel worse for Hyman, I am thankful for Simmonds.
All of you would be up in arms if the roles were reversed and a fighter went after Marner or Nylander for a cheap shot. Just sayin
I guess I didn't realize this in the past because we didn't play them as much but my God is it embarrassing how much the Western Canadian team's media members fanboy over their teams. Good lord.
We've got Farhan Lalji crying in the mentions. Iain Mcintyre up in arms. Jeff Paterson ready to jump.
This is my favourite from a Canucks based blogger. All high and mighty until someone pulls the receipts.
Genuinely bemused by the reaction out of Vancouver today.
The same market/fans/media that have driven veteran after veteran out of town, now championing the idea of "veterans needing respect"?
Lmao thats fantastic.
They wouldn't fight and someone else would get in their face.
Never happy are ya? Noone does anything and you'd be whining about a soft team
Expose Reilly in expansion draft. Problem solved.
Rest Brodie & Holl next game.
Then we have a worse team, and you want to spend that $5m on.....?
It would have been better if Jumbo (old/fragile) or Bogo (hurt) did it but that's a nitpick at best.
The point was the message was sent and should be a lesson to both other teams and our players that dangerous plays aren't going to be ignored.
Reilly's expendable. Target Andersen's money and Reilly's money towards resigning Hyman, signing a 1B to tandem with Campbell, resigning Dermott, resigning Mikheyev. Try to resign Foligno.
Promote Sandin and Lilegren
Edler has multiple suspensions for illegal checks, to the best of my knowledge Simmonds has zero. Maybe Edler should have sent someone else to check Hyman if that's how you want to play it.
Damn that thing forever!
I checked today and Edler has 1 fight on his resume, so it is fair game. lol
I always though casuals are who don't know players names or spelling of their last names...
Eh Simmonds took it easy on him. Anyone that thinks Simmonds was trying is new to hockey.
Separate names with a comma.
