If Matthews can perfect his 200 ft. game, he will be one of the best to ever play the game. I truly mean this. He can be a game changer, every game.
Leads the league in a bunch of defensive stats so far this season, dont swallow lazy media narritives.

They should have charged Dermott for tickets on that goal, watched the whole thing, intervening not a once.

Maybe he thought that he could never make a shot like that.
I'm sure you understand the basic concepts of defence, his job is to assume the guy makes the shot and not give him the chance, that is literally his job and he watched the entire play, never making a play on the puck, preventing a pass or being physical. 

They should have charged Dermott for tickets on that goal, watched the whole thing, intervening not a once.

I'm not forced to watch blah, blah, blah.


I really resent the team when they pull stuff like this, seems like a real lack of both physical and mental effort too often.

They aren't making the playoffs and if they do squeak in, get the brooms ready.

Too many players believing their own hype and unwilling to play a game that involves more than trying to pad their point totals.

Johnson has been horrific since his return.

Brazeau and Dusczak are already both too good for the ECHL. Given the Marlies struggles, I wonder if they give one or both a longer look.

This guy is like my wife's family's Gretzky, people here are really melting down.

So sad, his daughter was already tipped to be the best WNBA'er of all time, she was a star at 13 already.

Sad for those that felt connected to the man and for his family.

I'm not ready to deify him in death though, he has a dark past.

Kaskisuo comes up big in the victory and this is the TSN turning point of the season.

Has their been any speculation as to the Petan return?

Late pick or AHLer they think is undervalued?

To Toronto:

Dustin Byfuglien

To Winnipeg:

Cody Ceci
Yegor Korshkov
2nd rd pick
25% Retained on Byfuglien

Healthy Buf could be quite the antidote to some of what ails the Leafs.

The whole not being able to skate thing is a bit of an issue.

Full disclosure, I'm an alcoholic. It explains my absence for so long. I went to treatment in September 2016 after being admitted to hospital in very rough shape. My liver and pancreas were failing. I've spent since then battling my addiction. I attend AA 5 times a week, see an addictions counselor once a week.

But this disease is insidious. It's always waiting to get it's claws back into you. It's cost me my marriage and a few friends along the way. Last October I relapsed after just over 2 years of sobriety. I continued until April 11 when I checked myself into the Pembroke hospital to go into their monitored withdrawal protocol. I've been sober since then. But I've found it very tough. In AA we call it white knuckling it. So I took matters into my hands. Determined to finally give it up for good. As I write this I'm in rehab. On Wednesday I checked myself into a treatment facility in North Bay for 21 days.

Sharing for a lot of addicts is a form of recovery. Talking openly and honestly about our addiction helps us to find peace. It's also good for those who suffer in silence to hear that there is hope. And putting up your hand to ask for help is the most courageous thing you can do.

I can't guarantee I'll be sober forever. No addict can. But I guarantee that I'll fight like the devil to get my life to where I know it can be. A better a version of me.

Thanks for listening.


Sorry to hear you've had a tough go of it but I'm glad to hear you're fighting the fight and getting yourself into a better place. I've had family members go through a similar battle so I know you've got a tough road ahead but I also know that there can be light at the end of that tunnel. I think I can speak for the old timers here when I say we're rooting for you and that if you ever need to drop a line to chat, you're always welcome.


Pulling for you old buddy. PMs are always there if you need to vent.

Thanks AG.

In other news, my wife and boys arrived in LA two days ago, they were welcomed by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake shortly after.

I arrived today with the cargo trailer and was greeted by a 7.1.

Seems cool, not freaking out AT ALL!

Thankfully everyone is fine.
