Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Leafs trade Cracknell for Oleksy
« on: Yesterday at 09:18:53 PM »
Welcome back, Steve.
Welcome back indeed.

We need some D for the Marlies with Liljegren being injured right now and both him and Sandin going to the WJC real soon.

If he was acquired for our Leafs, he may be partnered with Dermott. Dermott had nothing but praise for him when they were partnered on the Marlies last season.

I heard Marincin was in it for the long Holl.......groan ::)
Holl of a player we've got there in Marincin.   8)

2 can play that game.   :-[
Bring on more puns and stuff, I love it.
Unfortunately, we are Finnish with our puns.

Replacement for Dermott, who replaces Gardiner?

Why would they be replacing Dermott?
Moving up in the line up from 3rd pairing to 2nd pairing.

Rosen replaces Dermott on the 3rd pairing.

I'm sure Jacobs insisted on it being 2 games!

And I'm sure Jacobs had absolutely zero input.
Look up the word naive.

Jacob's has a huge voice in the NHL.

This is probably the correct take here.  Jacobs is on the board of governors, it's a billionaire single owner, so his voice is a loud one and he doesn't like bad things happening to his Bruins.

2 games, 2 games, 2 games, then finally 5 games.  Even though he was a repeat offender, no extra games were added till the last 5 gamer.  Hyman gets 2 games having a clean record till Saturday night.  1 game, or a fine was more appropriate.  I'm sure Jacobs insisted on it being 2 games!

Nothing was really done about the licking!  Try doing that out in public yourself.  You would likely be charged with assault by licking someone on the street.  And yes, unwanted touching is considered assault.

Licking, or kissing an opponent should have garnered Marchand a suspension, not just a stern talking to IMHO.

Why would someone no longer buy a Leafs jersey or Merchandise because Zach Hyman got suspended?

Also, merchandise isn't really finite and the money is pooled. If one Leafs fan stops buying stuff it means exactly the same thing to the league as one Coyotes fan.
Where is the suspension for the nasty hit against Matthews, delivered by Kronwall?

Where is the suspension for the nasty hit against Marner, delivered by McAvoy?

Where is the suspension for the intent to injure Rielly, delivered by Wagnar?

I guess we should all buy 3 jerseys to reward the NHL for getting it so right.   :P

The message is the league doesn’t know what the hell they are doing
The League knows exactly what they are doing!

The League knows that for every Leaf fan they piss off, there is 50, or more, that will take over buying tickets and merchandise.  This is not so with most of their American franchises.

So, if you want to send a message with a suspension, do it with, and to, a Leaf player.  Just because I will no longer buy Leaf merchandise or tickets means nothing, as there are likely 50, or more people, still willing to do so not matter how unfair their Leafs are treated by the League.

Until our Leafs experience trouble selling tickets and merchandise, the League will not change anything.  The League needs to be totally embarrassed by MLSE.  MLSE has the funds, and clout, to push back against the obvious negative bias shown towards our Leafs.

I just don't understand why Wagner didn't even have a hearing then.

That's the one I have a problem with. I think the sort of late, unsuspecting hit Hyman delivered is bad for the game and needs to be eliminated from the game so I'm fine with his suspension; but the deliberate intent-to-injure sort of hit that Wagner tried on Morgan shortly thereafter is (IMO) even worse. That's the sort of predatory attack that could end a career so I find it really disappointing that they turned a blind eye to it.
Why would the League want to poke the Bear named Jacobs?

Tie game. 4-4. Starting over with 8:00 left.
 

13
Handless Hyman finds hands just lying there under the bench?

4-3 Wings.

14
So, you're telling me there's a chance?

Practice you passing during practices, not with time running down behind 4-1!
