...ahhhh Toronto, the only place in the world you can go and watch the Leafs fall in the Springtime!

#2501602 Net off the moorings question

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 March 2014 - 09:43 AM

The fact is had Smith not made contact with the player skating in the net would not have been dislodged and the puck still goes in for a goal. To me it appeared watching it last night that the contact was pretty minor and Smith made an attempt to move out of the way, but the net doesn't go anywhere if his momentum isn't driving the other player in that direction. 


In the moment I was annoyed with it, thought the call was wrong, and I still don't agree with it 100% but I understand why it was called the way it was after watching the replay multiple times. 


More importantly, it's done and over with, it's not getting overturned at this point and the call stands. Nothing changes that fact. 


People are blaming Smith because it partially is his fault, but take him out of the equation, people are still pissed at Smith for not sticking to and covering his man as the goal is scored anyway. It's a lose lose situation for a defender. I'm more irritated with Howard's rebound control lately.

Hopefully he comes in like a wrecking ball.




I can't decide if that's clever or just plain creepy...

I thought this quote was about Detroit.

As is customary in Toronto, when your team plays poor defensively game after game you blame your goalie.

I don't think Alfie came here to win a Cup. He packed up his family and moved to Detroit. He bought a house. He went all in on a long term life change to come here. He's not going to want to be traded. I think he just wanted to play for a solid team with good management where all the pressure isn't on him. I don't think he's retiring this year, either. He still wants to play but recognizes he's not the number one guy anymore.

I don't think he wants to be a floating mercenary like Jagr and Iginla.

#2478985 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by stillwater on 30 January 2014 - 04:03 PM

The thread title is misleading. No way Babcock gets fired this season.

The even better news of this story is that Franzen is returning Sunday, making this move necessary.  Hope he can play with the fire he did before the injury.

I'm in shock Holland had the balls to actually do it.

Finally, a good roster move decision!


Cleary next and we'll be getting somewhere.

#2475048 Leaders need to be leaders

Zett has 3 points in his last two games, and in an offensively slumping season he is still scoring slightly above a point per game. He is human, mistakes are going to happen, Z isn't the problem here. 


We can pick apart however many reasons we can to find an alternate reason as to why this team is in the shape it is in, but it continues to go back to the main reason. Injuries and commitment to aging roster players that no longer serve a valuable function.


Blaming individual players at this point isn't fair because we are playing at half strength. It's a constant game of shuffle and adapt as players continue to come and go. It's been the story of this season and last. Some guys need to retire, some kids need to play more, and most guys need to stay healthy for more regular periods of time before things begin to improve. It is going to be a lot of up and down until then. 

#2473835 Perspective?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 18 January 2014 - 01:58 PM


See now we are on the same page :)


Once a team is starting to fall behind, it's time to rebuild because the stupid CBA doesn't allow teams to use their own money. I'm not saying blow it all up but I'm obviously very concerned if they aren't going to start the rebuild next year, this team might be looking at a Calgary Flames like situations :(


Personally I just don't see a point in barely making the playoffs and going out in the first or second round and not getting a better draft pick (thanks god we've lucked out with Mantha).


So basically you don't see the point in making the playoffs unless your favorite to win?? 

#2473727 Carter Hutton's Save of the Year

Nice save, but if the Flyers' player gets off a real shot there then that goes in the back of the net.

#2471588 Brian Rafalski signs with ECHL team

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 January 2014 - 10:21 PM

If he hadn't retired and still played here everyone would be complaining that he's 40 years old and hasn't retired yet. 


I hope for the best for Raf, he did depart too early but even a consideration of having him return now, no thanks.
