Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Media Thread

If I was a Leafs media person, I would ask Chara a question that as a Leaf fan we need an answer.  Chara, what was going through your mind as Lupul was scoring a PP goal while you were sitting in the penalty box?

If the Leafs use their physicality and speed, the Bruins don't have a chance.  When was the last time we could use the adjectives physicality and speed to describe the Leafs?  Can't wait to hear the fans.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Getting Out Shot Every Night!!!

For those of you not too fond of Kostka, he has a broken finger from Last nights game and is out indefinitely.

I promise you that Michael Kostka will never play another game for the Maple Leafs. This is him being allowed to sit gracefully. He is absolute garbage.

Other players who are playing their last games as Leafs:

MacArthur, Clarke

Liles, Jean-Michael

Bozak, Tyler

Agree about McArthur and Liles but do not forget Komisarek, but not sure about any of the other players.  The team is in the right direction, and we know the type of players Carlyle wants in the lineup and what players do not fit so any of the changes made in the off season will hopefully make the team stronger.

MacArthur, Clarke - he's UFA - of course likely gone

Liles, Jean-Michael - So a compliance buy-out you think?

Bozak, Tyler - Unfortunately, it will be much harder and costly to replacement him. If he wants back they'll sign him.

I owe aplogy to Carlyle, I often questioned his decisions, but the way he did get ready his team for game 2 deserves ton of respect. He knew what he was doing, players responded exactelly as he evisioned.
On a related note I am also liking the cohesivness of the the Leafs. They seem to be a real team, not just bunch of 24 professionals. They care for each other, they fight for each other, they are not selfish (to my liking they are passing too much, just shoot the puck) which is very encouraging and coaching personel deserves respect for that too.
Fascinting night, so many great performances, so many players elevated their game, very memorable game.
Not only the Bruins are beatable, the Leafs can outmuscle them, outscore them, outsmart them. Even Phil Kessel can score on them. Things considered impossible months ago. They need to duplicate this monster effort, but right now they know it is possible. Huge building block.

I thought Carlyle and Nonis to a point were major reasons why the Leafs made the playoffs.  RC is more willing to change things around and bench or sit players when they don't perform even if they have big salaries.  I believe if Burke was still GM, Leafs would have ransomed the team for Luongo (just my opinion) and the Leafs system under RW would still be sucking.

Got my pride back in being a Leafs fan so can't help feeling good about the entire organization.

Just ask the Leaf bashers to read this out loud and preferably surrounded by a bunch of people:  I AM WE TODD IT.  I AM SOFA KING WE TODD IT.

I'd rather see Kessel and the other Leaf players focus and concentrate on the game rather than having to answer idiotic questions from the media.  We had to put up with stupid media all year - things like the Leafs needed to trade for Luongo or trade for a #1 centre to make the playoffs.  Leafs proved the media and critics wrong and now they're ticked off about it.  Media likes to make up stories to drum up controversy.

127
If the Bruins can't eliminate the Leafs in 6 or less, Leafs win in 7m but I am hoping Leafs do it in 6 or less.

I am not worried about the Leafs playing the Bruins - the Bruins are slumping and I think the Leafs were coasting near the end to rest or I hope that was Carlyle's plan.  The Leafs can learn a lot from playing the Bruins and have the potential of taking the Bruins out.

129
I am still giddy about the Leafs making the playoffs.  It will bring back fond memories of hearing the crowd roar when the  players come out in the first game at home.

Can we count on big ass fonts throughout the playoffs? (At least for the wins.)

Maybe just this one because of how special it is putting the Leafs in the playoffs, and for the first time in years I got to wear my Leafs sweater with pride and a huge smile.

131
Just checked the standings, Leafs are still in.  (I'm worried some authority figure will come along and take away the spot)

I believe Kerry Fraser is no longer employed by the league.

The ref who called that goal back on Saturday is working on something as we speak.

From what I saw, the Ottawa player pushed Komarov into Anderson.  Any contact between Komarov and Anderson was the result of that push.   In any case, glad that non-call did not cost the team the win.

132
Oh! And I forgot another thing.  The only way this pathetic team could qualify for the playoffs was in this idiotic shortened season with a million injuries all over the league.  It also happens to be the year that every Eastern team sh*t the bed and sucked donkey arse.  The Leafs weren't good enough to make the playoffs, it's just that every other team sucked enough to let them in.
 
This is my first post here so I really do not know much about the posters here or where they are coming from, such as yourself. 

Every team knew there would be a short season and therefore could make a sprint to the finish line.  Some teams were able to make adjustments and have a decent season and the teams that were able to adjust to injuries to key players that helped decide what teams would make the be playoffs and who would not.
 
In the case of the Leafs, benching Komisarek at the beginning of the season allowed other defensemen to contribute to the early success of the team.  Having a defensive system made it harder for other teams to have good scoring chances.  Remember seeing other players stand in front of the Leaf net while the Leafs defensemen were behind the net or just standing still???  The Leafs were more physical than most of the other teams.  Reimer played like a Vezina contender.  Lastly, Coach Carlyle instilled responsibility and accountability to the Leaf players that has not been seen in years.  It is for all these reasons the Leafs made the playoffs.  It has nothing to do with a short season or other teams sucking.  The Leafs were better than 11 other Eastern teams and a good number of Western Teams.

The 55 points the Leafs have earned so far is close to 92 points in a full season.  As a Leaf fan I am proud of the players.  They played with their hearts, played with desire and did not give up when there were times we thought the team would collapse.  To say the Leafs made the playoffs for the reasons you indicated shows me that you are quite oblivious to the reasons why the Leafs made the playoffs.

Welcome to the site but if you prorate the leafs season it is 100 points.

My apologies, but I was assuming the Leafs lose their next 3 games, so the 92 or 93 points would be their minimum points prorated to 82 games.  But it is quite possible and I hope it happens, if the Leafs win their final 3, that would be 104 points prorated to2 games.

133
And one other thing.  No one gave the Leafs a chance of making the playoffs at the before the season.  Everyone thought the Leafs would be near the bottom, including myself.

I hoping for the Habs, it would be nice if the Leafs could past them and finish 4th for home ice. Either this team is playoff bound and thats all that matters.

The way Montreal is playing, home ice advantage and a series win are definite possibilities for the Leafs.
