at this point, anything we get out of Connolly is a bonus.

So the season just started and a whole week off between games? Right.

Living in Trenton, have worked at C.F.B. Trenton, and have made a few friends within the military.  I think this week off is going to be great for the team.  They got a chance in actual games to see what they need to work on.  They have a rink to practice at, and if anything, the military guys will give them a chance to come together as a team with an assortment of team-building activities.  And they'll do some great PR.

Just got back from seeing some of the practice.  Took 3 of my kids, the 4th is going with her class.  I think the highlight was the look in Grabovski's eyes.  Totally intense.

I like that this team seems to get along so well off the ice, I think it can only be positive for their on the ice chemistry too.

And some of the generation of young people giving up on the Leafs.... ;)

http://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/article/1067387--public-leafs-practice-a-real-hit-with-fans-at-cfb-trenton

Hey all, my first post on the new page but this caught my eye in the article:
Quote
In the meantime, Nazem Kadri was back in full practice mode Monday morning, and was skating on the line with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin. Kadri was injured (knee) during the final pre-season games against Detroit. He was originally pegged at 2-4 weeks on the injury shelf.

“The little bastard is coming back quicker than I was led to believe,’’ said coach Ron Wilson. “We’ll figure something out.”
Not trying to add more fuel to the Ron Wilson hate fire but why would he refer to Kadri that way publicly? The quote itself just seems off to me.

No.

It doesn't need to be explained.  It's a matter of common sense.  If Wilson did not like him, he would not publicly insult him like that.  It's clearly a joke.

I took it in jest, meaning that it probably meant they had to make some decisions sooner than they originally anticipated. I'm sure Wilson is fine with having more options to chose from.
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.

Sounds like you had a good time. Grabovski's for real. I'm always impressed with his apparent effort and the things he says.

Where did I say Ron don't like Kadri? I never even implied it, all I said was that I found it a bit odd that Ron would refer to Kadri as "The little Bastard...". Obviously the team building exercises are working for Ron to feel comfortable enough to talk to like that in the Media. It may have been a joke, as it obviously was, but still in poor taste.

It's pretty clearly implied, but I'm not going to argue what you were or were not trying to say.  It will not change that I see nothing wrong with what he said, other than maybe it shouldn't be shown to children.

At least he didn't call him a 'little puke' (see Don Cherry's rant)  :)

It may all be a case of misinterpretation. I too personally have no qualms with the words spoken, just don't agree with Ron doing it publicly.

It wouldn't have been funny if he said it privately.
