Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Leafs worst 1st round pick

Ernie Moser, the original bust.

He had a 91 point season with the Flint Generals but never managed to crack an NHL roster.

Me too, especially given how well Kaberle played when they converted him to forward.

Obviously the "let's convert this guy to another position" stuff is silly and we always have fun with it, but I do legitimately think Polak would probably make for a better 4th line forward than defenceman (which isn't exactly saying much).

Everyone knows, if you're a good defenseman, you'll be an even better forward. Forward is easier to play, right?

Terrible work by the Boston defenders too. Both fronted onto Marner (credit to him) and abandoned both Gardiner and Marleau.

When asked about the play post-game, Marner said that's what he was trying to do.

They're almost a quarter of the way through the season and this is what they're on pace for:

Stamkos - 38 goals, 106 assists, 144 points

Kucherov - 77 goals, 62 assists, 139 points

Not bad.

Ok Blue Jays Talk / Re: Roy Halladay dies in Plane Crash

I guess we all loved Roy.

The last time I saw him pitch live was his last home start as a Jay. 7-hit complete game shutout. They were the best seats I ever had for a blue Jay game. 11 rows behind home plate.

He finished his Jays career with a 3-hit CG Shutout against Boston 5 days later.

Thanks for the memories Roy.

NHL Transactions / Re: Duchene & Turris traded
« on: November 06, 2017, 07:19:05 AM »
Oh, and I forgot, the Sens also traded their 2018 2nd with Zabinejad for Brassard. Jeez.
So they don't have their 1st or 2nd this upcoming draft and just traded their 2017 1st rounder. This has to come falling down soon, no?

Really seems like the type of moves the Leafs used to do.

Leivo playing net-front sans bucket: ‘manly’ or stupid?

Brad Marsh used to do it all the time on the defensive side. Never heard him called "unmanly".

That was dumb. If Lindholm doesn't hold Matthews stick, it doesn't go for icing.

Leafs Media Rumours / Re: OEL - come on down
« on: October 31, 2017, 01:46:30 PM »
OEL would be my top target.

Polak looks like a guy who needs a conditioning stint.

Yeah, I'm a defender of Roman but he looks slooow.  Coming back from that injury ... may not happen.

Just doesn't seem up to game speed. I mean, he was never fast to begin with but it looks mental.

Polak looks like a guy who needs a conditioning stint.

Are they filming this game with a potato?

I like it.  Team needs someone to clear the front of the net.  Far too much traffic for our goalies to see past

Is it possible to see GAA and save percentage rates 5v5 for when Polak is on the ice and without?

Anyone feeling the same way? Leafs No. 1 in the TSN power rankings:

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Leivo...

Whats up with this guy. It seems like all he is here for is to sit and watch. They protect him, they keep him up with the big team yet no game time, I am ready to see him in a few games. Any thoughts?.

Any time the Leafs are playing a less physical/smaller team, throw Leivo in there and let Martin have a game off. I do like Martin for what he is, but you gotta get Leivo in there.

Tonight against Detroit for example...
