George Parros is a twat.

Refs letting a bunch of interference go, I've counted six times already that blatantly warranted a penalty, everytime a Leaf comes through the neutral zone with speed and dumps it in the Florida D are running clear picks to slow them down.

I know heís the voice of your youth for a lot of you, but the fetishizing of Bob Cole is a total conundrum to me as an outsider. 

Heís terrible at getting names right and is clearly biased when he calls a Habs game.

This really sucks.

I know the roster is built to outmatch the other team offensively, but theyíre getting outmuscled here and there is very little pushback.

Getting intimidated like this is unacceptable.

Better Dermott.

I hate the Bruins in a deeply disturbing way, they are just so dirty every game.

I get that they have that big bad Bruins rep, but they can suck it.

Hey Nik, PPP is showing that Marleau is out?  What's the deal with that?

Kid, wife, working full-time + grad school full time for both wife and I.

My free time now consists of falling asleep standing up.

This should be a big win for the Leafs.

Forget the score I want Kronwallís head on a platter.

Toronto hasnít even been in position to sweep California since then.

Shilton is a pretty good beat writer but this makes no sense.  Every time they play in California they are in a position to sweep ... before their first game.

Would be if I were picking apart posters' sentences on here.  Not so, critiquing the pros.

Talk to the writer or talk to her bosses, having a pop at her here just makes you look like an a-hole.

The thing is, I know youíre not, youíre a great guy who adds a ton of value here, be that guy, not the pedant.


I've probably said some version of this before but I think physicality, both being able to dish and take hits, is undeniably a good quality in a hockey player but where I think you run into trouble is in valuing it to the point where a player who otherwise wouldn't be in the lineup wins his place there as a result. Typically when we think of "physical" players as a real plus we think of the power forwards who are good enough to play regardless. The value of the 4th line bruiser is something else entirely.

Thatís how Iíd describe Marchment, heís probably the premier power forward in the AHL. I donít think he will be a star, but he strikes me as the type of bottom of the lineup player Babcock loved in Detroit and would be an interesting net front presence on PP2.

The development curve heís been on is pretty spectacular and is a testament to the Leafs development staff, he didnít look like a pro when they signed him.

Great response period.

Although the fourth line has been good tonight, I feel like Marchment would give them a dimension they donít have. To be clear heís not just a goon, he skates very well for someone 6í4Ē and over two bills, forechecks like a demon and has a good shot as well as being good in tight.

He also wouldnít be afraid to push back when the opposition are taking liberties physically like the Sharks are tonight and how Boston was Saturday.

Iíd pay good money to watch Jim Hughson sustain a traumatic brain injury.

I am so sick of that stretch pass, and I am so sick of them flipping the puck out of the zone. Make some plays or find players who can.

Weak goal on Sparks. He needs to have that.

Iíd have liked him to stop it, but itís a tip from 4 feet away, hard to fault that.
