Re: [Hockey] Official 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

that's it...i have had it with Phaneuf...i hope they trade him...just about every time i see a bad defensive play, he's there...look at the great energy tonight...Frattin, Kadri, Gardiner, Kostka to name a few...all "kids", and all cheap.

To be fair to Dion and the rest of the team, that's 3 games in 4 nights...home, away, and then home the next night. He's also logging about 27 minutes a night. That's a lot of hockey in 4 days. Yeah, that was a bonehead giveaway, but I've seen worse. Dion is a good dman. But, he's out there so much, mistakes are bound to happen.

That all being said, I kinda loved how Keith Aucoin came back to bite the Leafs tonight after they tried to send him back down to the Marlies last week. I'm guessing that Aucoin had money on the board tonight.

Yeah, but every team is going to go through that a few times this season. Teams that can't handle it well are going to find themselves at a disadvantage.

i understand that, but it seems to happen to him more often then some of the others...in fact, i think i have seen better play from Kostka, and he isn't $7M/year.

Whaaaaaat? You mean you're starting the trade the way non-Blue team fans have been since it took place: overpaid and overhyped player that Calgary got rid of by taking on salaries they could quickly shed?

i don't object to the trade, as White was the only piece i was sad to see go...it's been a few years now, and i just don't see Phaneuf "fitting in"...he doesn't play with his physical prowess he did in his early years, and i don't see quality defensive play in him most games.

Nor does he show the scoring touch he has before... It's fine when an offensive defensemen's scoring numbers decline in favour of more solid defensive play, but that hasn't happened with Dion either...

Maybe he needs a bit more time under Randy Carlyle... We'll see...

In any case, it's only the remaining of this season and next, so unless he improves he's not gonna get half what he gets paid now...

Reimer was good tonight. The Leafs looked flat. No jump in the third period. Too much board play not enough skating.

I know we aren't supposed to expect much from the Leafs as constructed right now and their conditioning is suspect owing to the situation but holy mother of frack, am I glad I bought NHL Gamecentre.

Because at least now when the Leafs "bit the shed" like they've done their last two games I can try to find another game using the iPad that doesn't make me want to throw things in disgust.

I'll tell you, switching to other games shows how awful the Leafs really are. Like, other teams skate in open ice and create chances more than 2 feet away from the net. I have yet to see another team pin the puck up against the boards and then flail at it with their sticks seemingly hoping that they can somehow direct it at the net for an errant shot on net.

We can thank Burke for how bad this team was/is. Dave Nonis can't fix it quickly, and who knows if he'll fix it at all, after all he's been around Burke so much he must have a similar style...

don't forget, it was Nonis that gave Luongo that stupid contract no one wants...that's why i didn't mind Burke...Burke hasn't saddled us with long term baggage...sure, some of the deals didn't work out, but it's always a gamble.

I miss Brian Burke -- it's just not the same without his "brand" of media presence comedy.

No sir, Nonis did not give Luongo the contract. Nonis acquired him from Florida, but Mike Gillis gave him the ridiculous contract in 2009.

That's fine. Now the comedy has moved to the ice! ROFL.

Nope. Nonis was already a member of the Leafs staff in 2009 when Luongo's ridiculous contract was signed...

Agree. two points are important at this stage.

the only "crappy" thing this season, is since all games are in your own conference, those 3 point games are a nightmare.

That goal by Frattin was gold.
