Re: [Hockey] Official 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

Caps lost once again. Is Oates going to be the first coach fired this season?

True, but lots of players have great junior careers and don't pan out at the NHL level for quite a number of different reasons, from attitude and drive to size, injuries and roster depth.

Alyn McCauley, anyone? He was injury-prone, but there are lots of great OHLers or even world junior players who don't seem to work out in the NHL even though they were fantastic at the junior level. Ctrl-V would be a great example.....the Oilers just sent him down to the AHL again.

Doubt it. First year coaches usually have a bit more rope. Might not make it through the season, but probably not the first to go. Same goes for Bob Hartley.

I'd go with Peter Laviolette. But I wouldn't be too comfortable if I were Kirk Muller or Kevin Dineen.

Ctrl-V never played Junior. He still has great potential and I think they are thinking of grooming him to be a 3rd line checker with some scoring touches.

??? Not in Canada, no, but he did in Sweden and was a key piece to their WJC team from 2008 to 2010 (and at the U18s as well).

Marlies coach is on CBC right now. He is still not happy with Kadri and his defensive plays. Same players he supported for last 3-4 years have long been traded...Many of them played more NHL games than Marlies. Unnecessary Punishing some players while promoting many (below average)players for so long is bit too much.

I remember when Kadri played for the Kitchener Rangers...I seem to recall that he was pretty good. We have some good alumni from this hockey club.

i knew exactly how tonight's game vs the Canes was going to be before i even watched it...the usual conversations leading up the drop of the puck "Canes among the worse penalty killing and power play team in the league", "on slow start with Ward not looking his usual self", "Canes not a good team, and despite some off season acquisitions, are having a tough time getting chemistry with 7 new players"...as soon as they said all that prior to the puck drop, i knew the Leafs would lose...they play crap teams and find a way to play worse...on the "tying" goal by Bozak, i thought it looked like it deflected off something when it went in...when they went to review the goal, and they showed that "possible kick motion", i knew it would get called off...not because it was kicked in (it wasn't), but because that's just how things work out with this team...sure enough, it was called off...as soon as it was called off, i said "watch the Canes score now, just to rub salt in the wound"...sure enough, the Canes score on the power play right afterwards...honestly, i don't even know why i bother watching them play any more.

Yea last game was full of weird shit. Nothing went our way... Bozak wasn't even looking in the direction of the freakin play or the puck. How could he have kicked it in on purpose?

That's the way it's working for more than a few teams this season so far. It's completely absurd.

Leafs scrape out a 3-2 win against the Caps, win on the road again... JVR with two goals... Kessel still with a goose egg...

Caps are a team that doesn't know which way is up anymore and the Leafs took advantage (as they should)

Watching FLA/WPG ATM, the longer that one goes the better it is for the Leafs on Thirsday night

Good 3rd period comeback for the Leafs vs the Jets tonight... Kessel finally gets the monkey off his back with a PPG winner late in the 3rd...

It's a whole other world when you're on the road as the team from Toronto as opposed to playing in Toronto as the home team though and some players can't play as if its the same thing whether home or away.

At last Kessel is smiling. Now its time MacArthur-Grabovski-Kulemin line to step up the game.

Looking at home and home-away Wins I guess Leafs are point per game. So like 40-42 points by the end and out of play-offs?

Yeesh, even the Habs tough guys can't get it right tonight.
