  1. Actually, I used the word debate. I shouldn't have. There is no debate. Carey Price was never going to play every game. I guess you don't like the team's backup. I certainly didn't buy his jersey, but I realize he's got to play a few games.
  2. If you fail to see it, there's not much point in trying to explain it. Men don't bite men. It seems even Brad Marchand said it was pathetic, the Bruins pest.
  3. Exactly...I'm born and raised here, and have no problem saying it. No Quebecois goalies please. It just creates controversy.
  4. We're all fans. You are too. What do you expect? And I ask with respect, as you always add to the debates. Our team got slaughtered, Brian Burke style. He would have kept his job had they showed this earlier. I can't think of a worse way to lose. Next game, Ryan White will play no doubt. He'll do something dumb, and we'll be shorthanded for half a period.
  5. Blue and White are flying tonight...and we'll make Reimer look like Vladislav Tretiak. Oh, and you can't complain about CBC being Leaf centric. They look like a better team. Sure, our jerseys look pretty.
  6. I agree with brobin as well. There's a reason he was never drafted. Sure we all love those types of players, those stories. He had a nice season last year, playing on our top six, when he's never been projected as a top six player. Yes, there are exceptions. Players who against all the odds, exceed expectations. I fear Desharnais isn't one of them.
  7. Cole is a problem. If his heart isn't into it, like he suggested, then reduce his ice time.
  8. Exactly...it's as if the team doesn't realize it's a rival, and that it would be nice to beat them at home once in awhile. Good for the Leafs. 2-0 now.
  9. This is the most depth we've had in years. Kaberle and Weber can't even crack the lineup. Ryan White as well. And Nokelainen is poised to return. Our top 6 is set, and our bottom 6 has so many options, it allows Therrien to be creative. Health is key, but it's the same story for the entire league.
  10. So true. But I like to think it's the quality of our posters. Nobody's pouring beer on Leaf fans, or cheering for injuries like Bruins fans. Ottawa got the shaft.
  11. -12C here, light flurries...I'm guessing it's warmer there
  12. Sabres look horrible, but I'll take it
  13. I say leave Healy on Leaf telecasts, but I don't think they have much use for him either.
  14. Loving Bourque's play so far. Local TV guy says he didn't deal well with being traded last year. More comfortable this season, and it shows.
  15. It's a tricky subject to deal with. PK is a disliked player around the league by fans, especially in big cities like Philadelphia and Boston. I believe there's an element of racism in that. We're all read the "tweets". To say the league and his actual teammates feel any of this, I sure hope not. But I certainly don't know, and neither do you.
  16. This stuff is making me laugh. PK is not a western farm boy like Jay Bouwmeester or Chris Phillips. He's from the big city, mixed in with a Jamaican background. He's probably got more in common with Allen Iverson. The hockey world is going to have to deal with it. So what if he's egocentric or selfish. If he puts up, they'll all have to shut up. And if Markov has a problem, he should look in the mirror. I seem to recall him being healthy for country, but not for our favorite team.
  17. Colin, you don't post enough!
  18. I couldn't be happier. Is this what it's like to have a proper GM? And that's no disrespect to Bob Gainey, who's a legend in my home. And as Machine of LG points out, PK get's Kaberle's money when his contract is up. The future looks bright. Which is really all we can hope for.
  19. I see what you did there. Looked at the Blues roster, and tried to pick better players. They probably were not available. I'm not a Pierre Gauthier defender in the slightest, but let's not assume he was allowed to pick and chose anyone he wanted.
  20. I really don't like the way this is going. Just imagine how good PK can be when he's in his prime, which is several years from now. If Bergevin is looking to drive PK out of town, have him ask for a trade, he can get lost himself. Sure PK might be a pain in the arse. But we can't keep trading away players be because management can't deal with them.
  21. You made me laugh bbp...so true. People throw around etc's when they really aren't applicable. Kaberle is next to be bought out, if the team decides it's necessary. Not because he's not a serviceable player, but because his one dimensional play is a luxury the team might not be able to afford. Yes, we all know about the few assists per week he records.
  22. I'm hoping for a nice short season from Bouillon as well. And at the risk of repeating myself, when Subban returns, every player on the back end looks better.
  23. I knew we basically agreed. He's a home grown piece of the puzzle going forward. And believe me, I'd prefer he sign for a fair and cap friendly contract.
  24. habs rule....that's all nice, but it's just not the reality in pro sports in 2013. It's not even the reality of the 90's. At this point, Subban might be our best player, besides our goalie. There's about 25 reasons why he should be signed as soon as possible.
