More memories....TV Guide would show Channel 3 (Barrie) and 6 for the Toronto game, then 12 and 25 (French language) for the Habs game Saturday night.

As one wag put it:

TB unis are Blue and White. That is no coincidence.

Horribly outshot, trouble moving puck out of defensive end, poor positional play (3 guys behind the net on the OT winner).

Coulda swore the Leafs missed the playoffs.

Neither team is going far in the playoffs.

They have to get to the Finals eventually, don't they?

(maybe not)

This year is wide open IMO. My best guess is a BOS-SJS final. Maybe ANA from the West.

But who knows? A lotta teams can make a credible claim right now. But who will do it on the ice? Should be a good one.

Agreed.

Mason gives Philly a puncher's chance, but that's about it

That's what you get when you shovel a truckload of manure/malarkey/choose your favorite term.

Dion plus what?

I would try on Weber for Dion, Kadri, and Gardiner. Throw in a 2nd or 3rd if you need to.

Damian Rhodes. LOL nice reference

I won an autographed Rhodes game-used goalie stick years ago. Kept it hoping it would increase in value along with Damian's skillset.

Ended up using it to play road hockey with my 3 year old.

Good times.

If NYR plays Philly, I bet Emery starts Game 1 and does a Holtby on King Henrik

Mimico sucks

Even worse then Philadelphia :)

Missed it by that much

I had the 7th. I appreciate the Leafs waiting until the day after my birthday though.
Posted Tuesday April 08, 2014, About: Leafs lack the will to fight (in one zone)
Not sure what people mean when they say "total blow up". If you mean, evaluate who on the team is legitimately a role player on a Cup winner, then work towards replacing the rest, I would agree. IMO, there are more than 2 such players currently on the team (sorry Danny). Bernier and Reilly for sure, but JVR and Kessel need to stay also.

I would also put Gleason in that category (yes for real). No team has 6 Orr's. You do not need 6 Norris candidates to make up a Cup winner. Similarily, I would keep McClement (think Zezel for the old timers).

Problem with the Leafs is there are not enough top echelon players. This team is not that far off to warrant getting rid of 18 of the roster players. The need a couple good Centres (reincarnation of Espo or Messier would be nice) and 1 or 2 Top 2 D men.

Oh, and last but not least, A NEW COACHING STAFF.

Minnesota or Ottawa??

That says a lot about (a) the gene pool those kids came from, and (b) the NJ school system
