Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Reilly To The Wing

I think moving Kaberle to the wing is a better idea.

It really stands out how the buds miss the skill of Mo and Mitch when you see the PP

General NHL News & Views / PWHL

Not sure if this is the proper discussion to place this. But I'm watching the PWHL for the first time. I hope that the league becomes very successful as I've enjoyed the ladies playing on the world stage.

Quote from: hobarth on September 26, 2023, 01:01:41 AMI see there's a hard core entitled few that think they own this forum, I don't mind being ignored by them, I don't know why only cheerleaders are allowed on this forum by these challenged individuals and since I do get messages from others that feel that their whining is simply bullying, I think this forum will be the next to end up in a scrapheap.

I would like to invite people to participate in healthy debate/discussion about the Leafs, I think that this would be the best way to keep this forum going and the Benders/Guilt Trips should be ignored as I will be doing.

I also think that if the intimidated won't participate because of the bullying then that should be something that the mods should be doing something about to keep this forum interesting and compelling.

Maybe I'm not understanding the purpose of this forum, maybe I should be first clearing my posts with the entitled before I submit them as they seem to have absolute control over all topics about the Leafs and I have been warned about responding to their BS by a mod.

 

Objection! Argumentative.... Sustained.

Quote from: hobarth on September 25, 2023, 07:03:35 PMI didn't like what TO did last year during the summer, it seemed like TO was trying to become a Nashville clone, all defense, and was expecting that 5 players only were going to provide all of the offense, TO's regular season was again great, with the 5 player strategy, but the lack of offensive depth was again exposed during the playoffs. It wasn't only that the additions last year were very one dimensional but they didn't/couldn't help TO in the possession game which I think is the foundation of superior teams.

This year's summer strategy hasn't been the best, 3 years of Reaves, the Kampf extension but then TO signed Bertuzzi, Domi and Klingberg. The later 3 can perhaps contribute towards both offense, some physicality and possession, they aren't perfect but they do provide dimensions that's sorely been missing in Leaf teams since the beginning of the Matthews era.

Conventional wisdom has always stressed the importance of defense in the makeup of championship teams and TO's d was exceptional last year but conventional wisdom should also stress the point that the team that outscores the opposition wins and we have seen that TO's constant inability to score enough to win in the playoffs is a depth issue.

Maybe, we have a better balance that can continue to win during the regular season but also become more successful in the playoffs.

Sorry dude, but when I see a post by you I typically skip to the next post. I've been following this group since the plaidworks days. All of your post end up being arguments

I was a ball boy and bat boy for the Jays in 1979 and 1980. The lost 100 games both years. But they made the playoffs in 1985 and back to back World Series in 1992/1993. I know that's 30 years ago but I was able to watch those wins. I was 2 when the Leafs last hoisted the Cup.

I'm okay with the Jays. They've been entertaining for most of my life.

I was 5/6 during the WS runs and apart from that at the bat flip they've been unwatchable. And I grew up in the Jr. Jays club and read the comics and everything. Them doing nothing for most of Delgados and Halladays careers really didn't help...

When my son was 8 years old we traveled to Toronto and went to a Jays game. He got his Jays hat signed by Delgado. He had no idea who he was. Unfortunately, the hat was lost during a forest fire years later. We live in New Mexico
