Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

I'm not really that well versed in "Leafspeak", so I'm not sure if this is

A) an admission of guilt by Carlyle after his comments about Reimer last week or

B) his way of shifting blame onto the media for all of his team's problems.

Drew MacIntyre: the next "great" goaltender in Toronto?

I think he got "in trouble" from one of the many egos at MLSE.

After reading about how leafs fans are going after their players really members and wifes I am going to say screw them they deserve it. If some couch potatoes think this kind of stuff is OK all i can say is get your priorities straight.

And yet these people are wondering why most players don't want to play that fishbowl.

By far the biggest but also the most bipolar base in the NHL.

There are certain teams that I love to see fail: Yankees, cowboys, lakers, and yes the maple leafs. The habs are also on the list. I hope they suck forever!

What lost my respect for the Leafs was during 24/7, their team song they play after wins or to motivate them is Miley Cyrus We Can't Stop. Seriously? Gag.

Carlyle joked about it, that he's hard rock guy, Ozzy and Black Sabbath lol.

But really, Miley Cyrus as your team song? You deserve to lose in a proper way just on principle alone.

Stay classy Leafs...

Colton Orr and McLaren like it so if players are having a problem with the song they can talk to those two...was a quote from Bozak

I do not feel bad for Leafs fans or any teams misfortunes this year after what we have gone through with injuries. The truly great franchises find a way to win even after all the adversity.

Remember Rask for Raycroft? Bahahahahahahahaha

Well to be fair they did have future hall-of-famer Justin Pogge. :lol:

The Raycroft and Kessel trades are exactly what that fan base deserve. Along with the Clarkson and Phaneuf contracts.

Yeah...my better half is a hardcore Leafs fan (as is her entire family). I've learned well to bite my tongue...lol

Latest on the possibility that the Leafs' brass are talking about using a regular buy out on Clarkson in the off season

http://www.thehockeynews.com/blog/rumor-roundup-will-the-maple-leafs-buy-out-david-clarkson/

Remember when Wings fans were screaming because we didn't go after Clarkson? Remember that?

If it were up to a lot of the fans here we'd be stuck with Clarkson and Brunner right now for a combined total of 7.5 million plus. I recall a couple posters claiming it was an "epic fail" not bringing Brunner back and signing Alfredsson instead. Granted down the stretch Alfredsson has underwhelmed but he's been a lot more productive overall than Brunner regardless.

C) both. Carlyle is a limited, old school coach who unfairly threw his goalie under the bus. But the media in general, and the Toronto media in particular, are lying , hypocritical asshats who essentially force people down the road of meaningless soundbites.

I've been seeing on twitter a lot the last few days that Alfie has been playing with a broken pinky and/or ring finger. Would explain his lack of ice time and production.

Early on this season, when all was well and the standings painted a bright and rosy picture for "Leafs Nation", the players bought into to "The Carlyle Way". Something seems to have happened recently, almost as if some aren't drinking Kool-Aid from the same trough.

Did Leiweke's directions for the "Cup Parade" have a "Best Before" date on them?

Ron Wilson, where are you when you're really needed?

I like Clarkson - I really do, but not for the $5.25 million cap hit...For $2 million he'd be a good addition.

Agreed.

I have a soft spot for the Leafs; Wendel Clark, and Doug Gilmour in particular.

While I feel I'd like to see the Leafs be relatively successful (by that I meant, post a winning record/possibly make the playoffs because I think it's good for the league and them), I also can't help but smile smugly at their current demise. This has nothing to do with the Wings at all. I find that, especially from watching 24/7, that there is and has been a certain feeling of entitlement to their team, the players in the locker room and even management to an extent.

Everyone knows now that its about drafting and developing your way to success, and that is excatly what Burke should have done when he took the helm. Instead he essentially wasted 2 first round picks, and yes while he fleeced Calgary for Phaneuf, what they really needed was a proper rebuild, but his hand was forced because essentially the crybabies in the media and fans couldn't accept this fact and were too short sighted to see that this would lead to long term success (see Colorado - they bottomed out for a couple of seasons, got some really good first round picks, and now are on the up).

I guess I can't help but say they brought it on themselves to an extent.
