OK, so it's a little ironic that what was supposed to be a light, stress-free thread to allow people to just basically vent about the team without being told they're wrong because "math" has turned into some kind of state of the union thing, and that was never my intention. Nor was it my intention to insult any fellow posters.

Like I said, a post I saw about how it was a pretty sparse thread for a playoff game just made me think, and it made me consider why I don't post as often as I used to. And a lot of it was simply because these days, if you post an opinion, you better have the numbers to back up every possible situation, when sometimes all people want is to watch the game and express what they see in front of them at any given time.

Maybe they're right, maybe they're wrong, and expressing follow-up opinions is fine and welcomed, but it's like, when your wife/husband/whatever vents to you about their day, they don't want solutions. They want someone to listen. And if a conversation develops based on that, it's all good.

Again, the whole point was to provide a thread that was loose, like a chat in a bar, without it becoming like doing homework for an hour before you feel like you can post an opinion. I appreciate both sides of it, really, and I have no problem with those more in-depth discussions when I'm in the mood. But not everyone wants to research what (and just using him as an hypothetical here, for the record I think he's playing great) Gardiner's Corsi Close is in the last five minutes of a game on a defensive zone draw when they watch him make a bad play and vent about it.

This was never meant to alienate or attack anyone, it was simply meant to include everyone who wanted to just shoot the "stuff" about the team casually, the old (though I hate the term) eyeball-test conversations, I guess. I tried to be as careful as I could with the wording of the initial post so that would be clear, and in no way hostile, but I guess I wasn't careful enough.

Anyway, Go Leafs Go?



Good post, I agree.  I myself have been here almost from day one, and for a while now I have only posted once in a while my Reason is as stated above.  I thought this post was a good idea as well, as I to don't want to do math homework to talk Leafs either. I was picked and poked at for a long time for my thoughts when I posted but now I just don't respond to them anymore.

 The solution is simple.  If you don't like the conversation leave the post and go to another.  IMO this poster was not trying to stir the pot, he was only looking for some normal Hockey talk. I was liking this post as it was a very refreshing change until the jealous know it all's jumped in. Again, if you Don't like the conversation go to another post.

Guys look, Nik the Trik is doing the exact same thing in this thread that he does everywhere else.  Quel surprise.  ::)



Hahahah..... Soooo true.

Game day... please be competitive.

Hockey Gods if your listening that was a complete BS start to last game, ridiculous bounces, no more of that! Hard to start a game at 4-0.



I agree 100%.  The Hockey Gods owe us big time after that mess in Boston.  Lets hope that was them punishing Boston and there fans with a two game tease.

Don't count our boys out just yet, no team can keep that puck luck going. That was just crazy, the Leafs wern't that bad, and Boston was not as good as the score. Things will balance out back in Toronto.
Have you actually been watching the games?  The Leafs haven't been losing due to bad luck.



I'll bite.. Yes the so called bounce was in Bostons corner big time, and there is nothing you or anyone else could say to change that opinion. yes Boston has one hell of a first line, but to out score one of the best lines in hockey 20-0 or whatever the number is, is some major puck luck. nuff said I will let the Hockey gods speak for me on Monday night, as I believe the bounce has to go our way sooner or later.

Boston may be a bit stronger then the Leafs, but no where near the way things have gone. Again lets see what Monday brings us.

That was the worst bounce game I think I have saw in years. Every bounce went Bostons way, it was just tough luck.  There is no team in Hockey that could have beat Boston last night, every time they touched the puck it went in. where we could not buy a goal. (See example breakaway by kappy. he beats the goalie only to hit the post). All I can say is the puck luck has to change.

Nice post I agree 100%.  Martin not so much yet, I think we use our speed first.  If Plakanic goes for another ride I am all for getting him out he has not played a good game since he joined us, and we all know he has game.

I've predicted Leafs in 6.

The key is to shut down the Bergeron line. If they can do that, Leafs will be fine in this series.

Go Leafs Go!!!
Just moved into a new home, 65" TV arrived yesterday, so we are stoked.   Just wish Johnsson was playing over Komrade, its proven they win more with him in the lineup. Certified by Good Housekeeping ;)


I like him as well, but Leo's pesky grit will come in handy playing Boston.  When we play Tampa in the next round , then you can look for the speedy winger to jump in.

Go Leafs Go...... A win tonight gives us home ice back. Leafs in six.

OH ya .. hahahahah  Philly.

Leafs road to the cup is extremely hard - Bruins, Lightning, Penquins and then the Predators. No wonder they call this the hardest sport to win the championship. To win 4 from each of those teams without home ice will be very tough.


Tampa, Pitt, and Nash have not made it there yet. Upsets can happen, but ya I agree it will be a tough road for whoever wins it all.

Payback is at hand... go get em Leafs.  If we use our speed we will win this.
