• Back in Black

    This is what happens when team doesn’t play Orr or Mclaren for a while. Welcome back to the Ron Wilson 18 wheeler collapse hockey in action.

    The leafs are going to collapse because despite matching shot differential with wings they are outworked, outmuscled and outplayed.

  • Back in Black

    These past few games is exactly what happened during the Wilson collapse with other teams “interfering” with leaf players when an enforcer is not in the line up.

    I hope Carlyle plays Orr and calls out Mclaren because despite not being good hockey players they create “space” and for players like Kadri and Kessel. I didn’t really believe it until Kadri mentioned that Orr and Mclaren opened up more room on the ice.

  • By no means do I think he’s the saviour of this team but what is the situation with Bolland? When he comes back into the lineup there is something to be said about the leadership he will bring to the room. Despite his unsustainable production at the beginning of the season, he does have the capacity to help out offensively. Bernier…that is all.

  • I agree with most except the Gleason penalty. Do you not get sick of watching other teams stomp all over Reimer?! Ya, taking a penalty is never good, but I was happy to see a Leaf actually STAND UP for Reimer. he’s been run into more than I can ever remember another goalie being run, and the team continually does NOTHING. I was happy to see Gleason take him out.

    Leafs have completely lost their nastiness..

    • Thats’s because the team want’s Reimer gone and still blame him for last year….I have seen enough Reimer bashing this season to last a lifetime, I too give credit to Gleason becauae he doesn’t let anyone push a fellow teamate around no matter what this is not good…to have this much distaste for your Goalie is really sad….
      The team needs look into the mirroe and see what’s looking back at them because it’s not star quality it’s not I am going to go out with my TEAM and play and compete and rally behind my Goalie no matter what and than maybe just mnybe the Leafs could finally become a star quality team instead of THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE NHL…
      When you have a team like Boston on a 10 game win, this team doesn’t stand a chance way it is right now not matter if they get to the playoffs……they will be creamed….

      THANKS GLEASON for being having sportsmanship to stand uo for your Goakie…

      I honestly think everyone has been paid off to take Reimer out one way or the other…..never seen so many hits on him even by his own team as hes taek this year….

      ENOUGH ALREADY….

      I said they would screw him again and hang him out to dry……I listened to Dion go on about playing better for Reims and being a stonger team for him, we have confidence in Reims, on and on and on….yet every game is the same thing…..it’s like their playing hookey noy hockey and leaving Reimer to do it all..

      LAST I CHECKED HOCKEY WAS AND IS A TEAM SPORT AND EVEN THAT ONE MESSAGE ARE ON THE WEBSITE STATING REIMER COSTS US 1 POINT AGASINT CAPITALS…..DIDN’T REALIZE REIMER WAS ON THE ICE BY HIMSELF…SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE TEAM LOST THE 1 POINT NOT JUST ONE PERSON, THESE GUYS ARE FALLING APART..I RECALL REIMER TAKING BLAME IN THE LOST NOT BLAMING AND MAKING EXCUSES, BUT THE REST GUYS NOT SO MUCH…..He’s to nice for his oen good he stands with a team and battles for this team, but gets crapped on…..

      SO SAD…MAYBE REIMER SHOULD BE ON THE ICE HIMSELF…THAN MAYBE HE WILL WIN, OH THATS RIGHT IT’S A TEAM SPORT

      sad sad sad sad……
