Tony DeAngelo
« on: April 16, 2021, 11:23:02 AM »
Just curious as to everyones thoughts on the Leafs looking into Tony DeAngelo from the Rangers. I read there was some interest from more than 1 team in him at the deadline. I know the guy has issues not sure if the Leafs want to take that on. Having said that if a team can turn this kids mindset they would have a pretty solid, fairly young RH defenseman. Definitely be an upgrade in our top 6 and more importantly someone who can quarterback a PP, good skater and has a shot from the point. Kid had 53 points in 68 games 2 years ago. I know he's had issues but if a team can straighten him out would be a great pickup and might not cost a whole hell of a lot due to his issues. I wonder if Dubas and the Leafs were one of the teams.

No. Dude is toxic. Whatever he brings on the ice is less valuable that the disruption he'd cause off of it.

Talented play, absolutely.  I don’t want anything to do with him though.  His antics aren’t that if an immature kid.  He’s a full blown racist QAnon idiot. 

I think hockey really underestimated how much racism and/or right wing ism in the game overall but there is a big difference between the quiet stuff and the guy who can’t even be bothered to b screaming it from the rooftops.  Neither is good in my eyes but one creates constant headaches

That's a hard no for all the reasons mentioned already. I couldn't care less if he had the combined talent of Orr and Lidstrom.

On a related note - Steelback beer is one of the worst beers I've ever had in my life.

Somehow Frank D'Angelo manages to get actual actors in his crappy movies to act along side him.  Danny Aiello, James Caan to name but 2.

So I actually have a few things to say about that movie because my buddy was the GM of the theatre it had some big showing for and I remember reading up on a lot of things about it:

Caan called the experience of filming that movie (which he only had a very small role in) "humiliating". He was going through a lot of money/health problems at the time.

For days and days D'Angelo and his people were swearing that Caan would be showing up to the showing along with other stars... he did not.

Before the movie was released it had 8,000 reviews on IMDB and a rating of 9.0. That's unheard of for a movie literally knew existed. I remember going through a ton of the profiles of the "people" who reviewed it and they were all recently created and only either reviewed that movie or one other movie that D'Angelo also directed. Definitely all fake/paid bots by D'Angelo.

He's a very, very scummy person.
