Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Is Burke Handicapping Himself?
« on: July 04, 2012, 04:17:02 PM »
With the free agent system the way it is does Burke's stubborness to sign free agents to long contracts hold him back from acquiring players he could?

I personally don't believe he does for the reasons outlined in this blog I contributed to tmlfans: http://www.tmlfans.ca/blogs/6314-dont-believe-burkes-hype but it begs a scary question, would Burke draft a defenceman who tore his ACL over the consensus number one pick? Not to knock Rielly, after reading up on him I think the kid has some serious potential but really?

Non-Hockey Chatter / KONY 2012
« on: March 08, 2012, 06:31:50 AM »
So there is a viral movement to make Joseph Kony infamous and catch him has sprung across the the internet over the last couple days.  Who is Joseph Kony you ask?  Watch this video to find out:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc</a>

Kony is the leader of the LRA or Lord's Resistance Army.  A group operating in Africa that abducts children and trains the boys to be child soldiers and girls to be sex slaves.  It is estimated that over 30 000 children have been abducted in the groups history.

So a couple days ago the charity group invisible children made a video that has gotten 20 million views and counting in an effort to make it important to the U.S government to hunt and kill Joseph Kony.  April 20th 2012 there are plans to plaster major cities with Kony posters. 

Now you know who Kony is, what do you think of the movement?

(25-16-6) Ottawa Senators vs Toronto Maple Leafs (22-17-5)

The Ottawa Senators are one of the NHL’s top-scoring teams, but were shut out for the first time this season in their last game.  They could have a good chance of getting back on track in the opener of a six-game road trip in Toronto.  The Senators try to bounce back from their first regulation loss in three weeks Tuesday night when they face Maple Leafs backup goaltender James Reimer, who hasn’t enjoyed much luck between the pipes lately.

Toronto coach Ron Wilson has decided to go with Reimer in goal after starting Jonas Gustavsson for the last six games. Reimer, who hasn’t played since New Year’s Eve, is 0-1-1 with a 4.11 goals-against average in his last three starts.

(22-15-5) Toronto Maple Leafs vs Buffalo Sabress (18-19-5)

full preview: http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/nhl/preview?gid=2012011302

A four-game winning streak has boosted the Toronto Maple Leafs’ hopes of finally reaching the playoffs for the first time since the NHL’s season-long lockout in 2004-05.  A home-and-home sweep of sputtering Buffalo would hurt the Sabres’ chances of joining them.  After shutting out the Sabres earlier this week, Toronto can open a 10-point advantage over its Northeast Division rival if it posts another regulation victory Friday night in Buffalo.  Seeking to bring the NHL postseason to Canada’s largest city for the first time since 2004, the Maple Leafs (22-15-5) have jumped to seventh place in the Eastern Conference after sweeping a four-game homestand to begin 2012.  It’s been nearly five years since they last won five in a row, although they’ll have to end a three-game road skid to match that feat.

(18-18-5) Buffalo Sabress vs Toronto Maple Leafs (21-15-5)

Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul may be the best one-two scoring punch in the NHL, and that’s key to the Toronto Maple Leafs’ success and optimism.  Scoring tends to be at a premium for the Buffalo Sabres.  Lupul and Kessel will try to extend their scoring streaks as the surging Maple Leafs host the punchless Sabres in the opener of a home-and-home set Tuesday night.  Kessel has 24 goals and 48 points to rank second in the NHL in both categories, while Lupul isn’t far behind with 19 goals and 47 points.  That success is a big reason Toronto (21-15-5) is in seventh place in the Eastern Conference as it tries to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons.

Non-Hockey Chatter / Personality Types
« on: January 07, 2012, 01:41:22 AM »
I took the myers-briggs personality type test today and I am really getting obsessed with it.  I am supposedly an intj which means introverted, intuitive, thinking, judging.  There are 16 different types introverted vs extroverted, intuitive vs sensing, thinking vs feeling, judging vs perceptive.  If you go on youtube you can find videos explaining your personality type and posting funny pictures of your personality type.  Mine are

Non-Hockey Chatter / Twitter

(25-13-1) Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs (19-15-5)

Jimmy Howard’s reliable play has made it easy for the Detroit Red Wings to keep starting him. Jonas Gustavsson is hoping to develop into that kind of goaltender for the Toronto Maple Leafs.  While Gustavsson will try to earn another start, Howard will go for his 100th career victory and league-best 25th this season Saturday night at Air Canada Centre.  Howard has started 30 of the past 32 games for the Red Wings (25-13-1) and has one of the best goals-against averages in the league at 1.99. He’s won 20 of his last 26 games.  Howard and the Red Wings, though, have had their troubles on the road this season. Detroit has won 12 straight at home but is 10-11-0 away from Joe Louis Arena, and Howard has alternated losses and wins in his last eight road contests.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / The Brian Burke Thread
« on: January 05, 2012, 06:18:03 PM »
We used to have this before the forums went down so right now is a good time to bring it back.  Post all Brian Burke related media in here, for starters thoughts on Burke's outburst at the NHL today. 

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=384292

my take is somebody call a waahhhhmbulance, burke is crying because he wants the game played trukulantly when the game is evolving out of that and he is going along with it because he has to. An enforcer is no longer nessecary, a pest maybe we have Armstrong when he isn't spending the entire year on the IR. As for accountability players stick up for each other all the time. Seriously disapointed in burke for these comments

(19-15-5) Winnepeg Jets vs Toronto Maple Leafs (19-15-5)

full preview: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/preview?gid=2012010521
The Toronto Maple Leafs made a New Year’s resolution to clean up their much-maligned penalty-killing unit.

The Maple Leafs’ special teams were stellar in their first game of 2012, an effort they’ll look to build on Thursday night against a Winnipeg Jets team that scored a pair of power-play goals against them on New Year’s Eve.  Toronto (19-15-5) opened January on Tuesday with an impressive 7-3 win over Tampa Bay. Joffrey Lupul led the way with a goal and three assists while Phil Kessel scored his 22nd goal in the Leafs’ highest-scoring game since a 7-1 victory over the Lightning on Nov. 22.  The Leafs killed all five of Tampa Bay’s power plays, including a 5-on-3 disadvantage. It was an encouraging performance for a team that came in last in the league on the penalty kill at 72.3 percent.

in my defence I wanted to post all of the GDT's at the beggining of the season when the Leafs were winning but Leafaholic beat me to 4 of them so thats like 8-4-2
