Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Tank Nation UNITE!!!

What, do the Leafs all of a sudden have a Penguin on their jersey or something?

I'm not conspiracy theorist or anything, but, with the drop in the Canadian dollar, the league likely cannot afford to see the Leafs revenue drop off in any meaningful way. In fact, I'm sure they'd love to see it grow. If there was ever a time the league might rig something in the Leafs' favour, it would be now. I don't see it happening, because I don't believe that's how the actually operate, but, stranger things have happened.

1984 Penguins in financial trouble, risk of moving - draft Mario Lemieux

2005 Penguins in financial trouble, risk of moving - draft Sidney Crosby

Like, screw off Pittsburgh.  Hope they never win again.

We are the fans, we are tank nation
We are the ones who hope for Connor everyday
So let's start losing
That's just what we're choosing
We're saving our own Leafs
It's true we'll make a better day
Just Shanny, Dubas and me

I think Nik covered this earlier today but yeah, they did.  His name is Tyler Seguin.

And, if they suck just a little longer this season, there's a few potential #1 centres in this year's draft.

Mirtle pours cold water on that in tonite's postgame column.  :(

As a Mirtle reader and fan, I think he can accurately title most of his articles, "Whatever you're hoping for, it's not going to happen, and here's why".

I especially enjoy his special Sunday edition: "Your parents lied to you and didn't send your dog to go live on a farm."

Wait, what?

I'm sorry.  I thought they had told you by now.

I think what this game proved is that the Leafs really can't afford to be without Phaneuf for too long.  2 games has made that abundantly clear.

Unless I'm misreading, sample size trumps sarcasm?

Well I'll admit after the New Jersey game it was pretty clear they wouldn't miss him, that completely changed after this game.

How do you come to that conclusion when, outside of 2 garbage goals on Bernier's part, the defense was only responsible for one GA.

If anything these two games have convinced me he's expendable.

Damn, I tried to make it sound sillier the 2nd time around!

Rielly looking more and more comfortable.

He's been excellent offensively the last two nights now with the reigns off. He oozes potential.

I think you look at someone like Oliver Ekman-Larsson, it took him a few seasons to really become the player he is now.  Hopefully Rielly continues to get more minutes and can run with it.

Again can't score and other team scores a goal that bounces multiple times and goes in.

B2B starts hey.

Horachek might as well just throw his hands up. He's clearly been cursed by someone.
