Quote from: Significantly Insignificant on November 08, 2023, 09:26:22 PMGood to see we all over-reacted to Woll's fast start.
Woll is fine. Just a bad game.

Just a bad game?  Here are his last 4 starts:

Nov 8, 23 vs OTT L 27 6 .778
Nov 6, 23 vs TBL W 19 1 .947
Nov 4, 23 vs BUF L 40 5 .875
Oct 31, 23 vs LAK L 27 4 .852

It's not a bad start, it's a regression to the mean.  He isn't a goalie of the future, he's a failed Leaf prospect.

Oh come on.  I get you're upset but this is just silly.
No kidding. Some like to overreact....it's actually pretty comical.

Thanks anti-azzuri.  Love your objectivity.  Just because you want everything to be positive doesn't make it positive.  A person who never wants to see flaws in something can be annoying too as well as comical.
Where did I say they didn't have flaws? They do but the overreactions after goals/losses by some here is funny as hell. Trade everyone, team's embarrassing, failed prospect, etc., etc.

Well I'm glad you are the type of person who laughs when other people are upset.

Tell you what I am going to do.  I'm going to cancel my monthly Patreon payment to this site, and just stop coming by.  That way you don't have to read my "comical" and "funny as hell" rants about the Leafs when they suffer a loss, and I don't have to be taken to task and talked down too by some elitist positive thinker just because I have a negative emotional reaction to the way the Leafs play.

I wish you all the best.

Look, we've seen this play out before, many times.  Pogge, Gustavson, Reimer, Sparks...and the list goes on.  Sure other teams get good goalies that come up from the minors and do amazing this.  I get how Leafs fans think it's possible, but  this is the Leafs though.  That doesn't happen for this team.  Why would it?

Can you tell me that you looked at his game tonight and think that Woll is destined to become a top 15 goalie in the League?  If we can all jump on the bandwagon after 2 good games, why and I not able to remove the screws from the wheels on said bandwagon after three really bad games?

I hate the hockey gods.  I really do.  Friggin' Stutzle comments on the Leafs salary structure.  Melnyk commented on their rebuild and said that they forget about the defence.  The Sens fans hate the Leafs first and then love the Sens second, and we have to put up with this sort of BS.  Like absolutely nothing.  Meanwhile, we have to deal with Boston collapse, and the Montreal collapse, and then the failed rebuild that was supposed to bring us a cup.

This is beyond embarrassing. This team is the but of all the leagues jokes, and they can't even ice a respectable hockey team. What a god damn joke.

Quote from: Arn on November 07, 2023, 04:33:27 AMThe Spurs v Chelsea game was mad, massively entertaining, possibly as much because of as in spite of the red cards.

Really like Spurs coach and his way of playing.

Sad that Kane didn't stay.  Would have been interesting to see if he could've chased Shearer.  I get he wanted to chase trophies, but with the way Tottenham is playing this year, if you drop in Kane with Madison controlling things through the middle, that could have been a special team.

Can they waive Reaves, and demote him on paper to the Marlies, but he still practices with the Leafs?  That way if they want to "bring him up" for a game he is just ready to go?

Keefe should probably be fired for not putting Knies on the top line sooner.  Although Knies plays well against Tampa as well.

Also I watched the Tottenham and Chelsea game today.  Too bad Tottenham took the two reds.  I was hoping for a bit of a better game.  Even with the two reds though, it looked like Tottenham might pull it out, especially near the end of the game when Son just couldn't get the shot he wanted away.

I know they were playing bad last year at this time, and they turned it around.  But it always feels like they are not going to turn it around.

Quote from: Significantly Insignificant on November 04, 2023, 06:43:50 PMHey Arn

That was quite the win by Newcastle today.

Some season they're having. Currently down 8 starting players but still grinding out wins against the likes of Man Utd and Arsenal.

I fear the bubble will eventually burst, but it's amazing what good coaching can do. A lot of the players performing now were absolute duds under the previous coach.

I thought that Joelinton was going to get the goal called back at first, but then on the replay I think he was just following through, or bracing himself.  Gordon did a good job there.

I kinda feel that Man U and Everton might start going through what Newcastle is coming out of.  Ineffective ownership that causes a rudderless club.  It looks like Newcastle has a plan now.

Something is rotten in the state of Leafland.
