So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.

Really what is going on with this team? Today another episode of giving up 3 goals after a lead. it makes me pull my hair out. The old wings knew how to shut it down with a lead, these guys look like they quit playing after they get the lead and then have to pull a win out of their a**. Anyone else frustrated seeing this trend lately?
what can be done to fix this? Who is to blame? Where are my meds? Sick of seeing it.
1. Half the league is good now. Games are closer. Teams are more even.
2. We lead the league in come backs when trailing after two periods and are 2nd only to Anaheim in wins when trailing IN the 3rd. Why must you be glass half empty?
Not just Toronto has to be politically correct.
And he's a sports figure.
I would hope they made him apologize.
People need to start thinking about what they say before they say it.
If I had a little girl who was into hockey and one of her sports icons said this, I would be pissed that she's being belittled and talked down to by some random dou***bag.
Why should "everyone" just because some people who are offended by almost everything want to impose some dictationship like rules ? I'm not getting into politics here because I hate them and this is a sports forum...but I guess some people would be surprised by the amount ot trash talking that's happens during games.
Guess what be pissed about and tell your little girl to find another icon if it's such a big deal for you as a dad I mean there are 700 NHL players can't be that hard. People these days want all the information but some for sure can't handle it it seems.
It's exactly stuff like this why Toronto is having such a hardtime attracting free agents (despite some other shortcoming of course) but seriously they're making a big deal out of pretty much every non hockey related stuff i.e Bernier not knowing who Mandela is, Phaneuf not wearing an "official Leafs cap post game" and now this...I'm sure the players are frustrated enough already cut them some slack and let them focus on what's really important ...their job: hockey.
He had to apologize because the feminists in Toronto were not happy with his remarks. They had a couple groups on radio stations in Toronto complaining about it. Had nothing to do with the Hockey media.
I'd say let them complain then if they have nothing better to do it's their life if they want to waste it on such useless stuff go ahead
I've never seen a place where the by far best player is getting so much flak.
But sure go ahead trade your best player and then complain about not having a finisher
Clarkson, Lupul aren't movable but Phaneuf is not that bad if the Leafs retain some salary the offers will come flying .
