Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Game In Six Thread: 2017/18
« on: October 01, 2017, 04:17:47 PM »
It all starts on Wednesday, so I thought I'd get a head start on this thread while I had a few hours to kill this afternoon. I believe we're in for one hell of an exciting season.

Hope to see everyone here watching the first G.i.S. starting Thursday morning!

Go Leafs Go!

With all the excitement building for this season, I thought I'd post all the G.i.S Pre-season games to prime us up for opening day.

Not the best of starts, but here goes...

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Is Jared Cowen salvageable?
« on: February 11, 2016, 09:44:25 AM »
So much promise for this kid. Picked #8 overall in 2009. Basically a throw in on the Phaneuf deal.

Does anyone think there is a chance Cowen can find his game under Babcock?

This article would indicate that the chances are slim...

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Coach Mike Babcock

As I predicted months ago, Mike Babcock is now the coach of our Toronto Maple Leafs!

Dreger reporting he has been hired. 8yr / 50 million

All Sports But Hockey / Offensive Pro Sport Team names...
« on: January 24, 2015, 10:12:15 AM »
Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins.

Dear Mr. Page...

I agree with our Native American population. I am highly insulted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay.

We must be not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your  shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive.

Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy?

No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names.

Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong  message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic.

Wrong message to our children.

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.

So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue,  as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves.

As a diehard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers (especially when they play  Southern California.  Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers???)

I always love your articles and I generally agree with them.

As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick  heads in Congress

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Goaltending Showdown - Reimer vs. Bernier
« on: September 30, 2014, 12:08:08 PM »
I think most fans are of the opinion that the goaltending 'showdown' is officially over. This article just add more ammunition to that argument...

(Some nice graphics too)

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / The Komarov Effect
« on: September 24, 2014, 08:27:11 AM »
I figured we needed a dedicated thread for Leo. (if there isn't one already)

I know it's early, but something tells me we're going to be doing a lot of Komarov 'discussing' this season. Besides the fact that he looks like he's actually gotten better since his first stop over in Toronto, he's also a real 'shift disturber', and he's entertaining on the ice as well. He's also a pretty interesting guy outside of hockey too. Apparently the Estonian native speaks 6 or 7 different languages.

What I like about him most is that grit and energy he brings to every single game he plays, and at the level we don't see from too many players in the game today.

Will he be an impact player this season?

My guess is that he will, but the jury's still out, I guess. Should be fun to watch, and hopefully he can add some more scoring to his repertoire this year.

I think he'll turn out to be the best off season moves Nonis made this past summer.
