Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Mitch Marner: what now?
« on: June 19, 2019, 05:55:36 PM »
A few thoughts that occurred to me last summer after I mulled over JT signing and the prediction/statement that Marner was going to
play with JT.....

- from the Leafs side, they had better sign him before last season even if it *appeared to be an over-pay* this past year

- If I was Marner I'm pretty sure I'm having a career year playing with JT so I'm signing anything.

Not exactly a genius take as it was pretty obvious if Leafs didn't sign him last summer that this was going to happen.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Marleau being shopped around
« on: June 01, 2019, 11:12:58 PM »
Kypreos just said that Marleau's family is moving back to San Jose, and he wants to move somewhere close to that. Mentioned Arizona, Colorado, and LA as potential landing spots. Said the Leafs might have to retain $1mil or so.

Like Zaitsev, this somewhat surprisingly seems now like it's a mutual desire to part ways.
He just isn't a fit. I think he knows that he just can't hack it anymore with better options on the wings already there.

I wonder how much attention he pays to his consecutive games streak because if I were him, I'd be thinking I'm not playing 82 games if I stay in Toronto

Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Game of Thrones (S8)

While the ep was visually impressive I do wish the writers at least attempted to use some logic in some of the
scenes such as what appears to be stone blocks exploding and burning. If they showed 2-3 seconds of wood
buildings that would have helped - or perhaps I missed it....and simply attacking the fleet from behind the arrows
was an obvious tactic...

But I'm nitpicking....asking for logic  :D as I watch a woman (simply gripping some horns) while flying all around
on a dragon breathing fire exploding stone build monuments.......

I am really enjoying the season but as most have said, it's way too compacted and they really had a wealth of plots
to work through if they had wanted to.

I will be away for the final ep that will see Jon and Danny settle it with a fight to the death and as such will have to avoid all media
for 2 days until I can watch it.

When Simpson highlighted Matthews TOI and time between shifts that sealed it for me - not that I needed any further evidence.

Babcock has to be held accountable. F**k him.

What's Nylander done to earn those dollars? Dude vanishes come playoff time.

Sad fact is, he hasnít.   Worst part is his bad compete level.  He doesnít skate hard.   Gives up on a lot of plays.

Said it then and Iíll say it again. Never should of signed him. Should have made an example out of him and to boot overpaid him. Dubas fíkd up.

But he can trade  him

The Leafs should play Nylander with Ennis and Moore for the 3rd period.  And not play Marleau Brown and the Goat who have not generated any offence for the playoffs (if not the last 3 months...).   But it would require coaching shrewdness by Babs which has been woefully lacking.

Absolutely. The big 3 had better be on all 3rd.  If Babcock continues to play the 3rd line as is (4th is outplaying 3rd or actually Ennis and Moore are) and he doesn't roll top 2 lines with the odd 3rd with Willy/Moore/Ennis it's something Dubas needs to address..

23
Good to see Marleau still on pp

24
Try Willie with Ennis and Moore for Gods sake

25
I just can't  see how resigning Jake can be presented as a move forward for this team when he can't perform in the key moments

26
The Leafs bench had better a whole lot shorter pretty darn quick..

27
In what frigging universe did that play by Jake make sense? THREE Bruins right there...

28
F%^%#^^king turnover again

29
Yowch! Malfunction at the junction there!

In the past I've left family reunions, birthdays, holidays, picnics to go home and watch the Leafs in the playoffs.

Friday night I had a choice to make and decided to put myself in an area where it was not possible to watch.

I cam home late last night to make sure PVR is set for this goofy time and to decide if I'm watching it.

The answer is no since...you know...Friday win...but it's14 minutes after 3 and I'm getting weak.

But I will persevere.

Hopefully reading this thread after the game will be....epic....

So...very disappointed but I must say not watching/listening my stress level was way way down and my BP as normal...even after reading this thread.

Not sure what to do for Game 7. Drugs and alcohol are fairly near the top though.
