Personally I would be disapointed to see Bozak go, I like his style to be honest and he is still kind of young I would like to see him maybe have another couple of seasons to see how he develops.. or am I just biased :P, but i guess that could bring problems of its own.

As a fellow English Leaf, welcome aboard.
We seam to be growing in numbers which is a good thing :P
Welcome!  I suggest purchasing NHL Gamecenter Live if you're going to be in England trying to watch Leafs games.  I'm in Australia and I've yet to miss a game because of it.  You'll be able to pause games, or watch them later/at your own time, which is handy for the different time zones.

I have bookmarked the page and am going to register in the morning so I can see some of the games I missed last season. Thanks for telling me about it  8)

Hey folks thanks for the welcome :)
Yep as some have guessed I am a Geordie living in the south of Scotland (well the borders) and my team has always been Newcastle United, I know i said we havent won any silverware but maybe I should have said major silverwear as in competitions FA Cup etc. Whilst the Championship league win was awesome, it wasn't celebrated as a major trophy as such (apart from those in the bigg market etc) but it helped to ease the relegation feeling of the season before.

I do in fact mean the Europa Competition but to be fair to Newcastle its still a major breakthrough. Some folk have said we were lucky to finish where we did,  and if that is the case, I for one will grab it with both hands and hold on for the ride however bumpy it will be. I don't get much time now to attend matched due to a few factors, a couple of them being the distance to travel and the fact that I have an elderly parent I look after on a full time basis. However I lend my support where I can.

I'm beginning to feel the same way about the leafs, no matter how crap they play or how lucky we get I will still lend my support as little as that is right now :P.

I would love to see the leafs get into the playoffs and will celebrate when that eventually happens, no matter how long it takes.

BTW I am probably going to get shot for this but, Tyler Bozak is one of my fav players, I like how he plays. He has potential but hes far from perfect I guess.

Thanks for the explanations, I am a wee bit wiser now and understand a lot of whats going on. Sounds like a huge bartering system I kind of like the idea though and will be watching this with interest (as long as the rivers don't dry up).

I think I like the leafs because they remind me of my native Football Team (soccer), who Like the leafs haven't won any silverware for a loooonnng time. They frustrate the hell out of me, often they play with a lack of purpose, often they play brilliantly but don't get far... somehow though I cant stop loving my team. This year when the season ended, we were places 5th in the league, which means we play European football next season.

Hopefully this will be the season to shock the fans and the leafs might make the playoffs...  ;) :)

Some have said I am a dreamer.... but I'm not the only one....

Cant wait for the season to start, now all I need to do is find a legit website I can watch the games on.

I may have other questions so please be patient :P

Hey folks

Leafs fan from UK here..

I have been following the leafs whenever I can for about a year now, only way I can get to see the games is via the wee rivers that flow through the net. I am kind of new to the ice hockey scene so I might have a few question for you all as I try to get a better understanding of the game.

I first got hooked about a year ago watching a NHL game online, I wasn't a fan of any particular club at the time but as the season progressed I seamed to be rooting for the leafs whenever they played.

This whole Draft thing is new to me too so if anyone can explain it to me I would be grateful.

Anyway i thought I would into myself and let you know I am looking forward to another rollercoaster leafs season :)
