no he didn't.
ahl hockey is sloppy as ****, and the marlies easily could have won games 3 or 4 (i didn't see any of 5). some bad goals against, some good chances missed... they were right there.
nylander is a...
It isn't like they've never televised the thing before.
You really think they would stop doing it if it was a money maker?
I doubt 50,000 Canadians watching on TV justifies production/travel costs to get everybody in the room together, pay some talking heads to talk about something that has no analytical value whatsoever...
with the slow skydome turf his defensive value might shoot through the roof.
I don't understand why people think a GM should come in with a clean slate of coaches and assistants. Why let him fill the ranks with cronies? That was Burke's approach and it was devastating. This...
wonder who hughson wants to win this one.
dirty stuff from gallagher after the plekanec goal.
wonder what you were saying on this day.
Leipsic has started scoring goals. His overall totals are solid but the lack of goal are a bit concerning. Nice to see him finally start putting the puck in the net late in the year.
and, ya, that pillar catch... what a start he's having.
if travis learns to turn on inside pitches he's going to have serious 2b power.
his ability to go opp field the way he does is awesome. not a lot of second basemen can do that.
Kane really doesn't float like Kessel. Kessel's pretty unique in his complete unwillingness to (1) try on defense and (2) take any contact, whatsoever.
Why do people keep saying this? They...
Carlyle will get another job. The Leafs might even have made him look like a genius, based on how they finished.
What do they need to help him out with?
Rick Dudley is to you guys what Cliff Fletcher is to us. If he wasn't there, nobody would notice.
At the end of the day it's going to matter to Dubas. If you add another voice you just crowd him out. Frankly, with the three guys they have right now, there are enough voices in the room.
Would imagine the responsibility is what is important.
Who cares about having an experienced guy? They have Shanahan and Hunter, two hockey lifers.
What do we need another cliff fletcher around...
Just give it to Dubas.
It's so stupid not to. They're grooming the guy for the job. He has everybody's ear right now because of his analytics focus. He should have plenty of ears on the ground in...
If 18 scouts were fired then they must have fired every single NA scout.
Per the team page, they have 23 scouts... 18 NA scouts and 5 European Scouts. Can't imagine Bergmann's been relieved.
Fletcher has no sway; I think his position is symbolic more than anything. I wouldn't throw Penny out just yet. He's the lone Quinn holdover, was Quinn's director of player personnel and he's been...
snider looked bad there but that was a really well hit ball by travis. being able to line that outside pitch deep opposite field is a good sign.
kid can work counts and hits the ball hard. love...
You are underestimating what teams are going to give up for a 27 year old who has been a top ten scorer over the past 4 years. That is lost on nobody.
And whatever bad signs he showed this year...
0 ****s given.
What's funny is how his approach changed from day one to the end of the year.
They drove him batty. In those first few weeks he took a soft approach and coddled everybody. Tried...
He isn't going to recoup any value. Plenty of temas will give up plenty in a trade for him. And - to be honest - another 60 point year will do way more to hurt his value than a return to 80 point...
