#2579653 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by DickieDunn on 07 March 2015 - 02:43 AM

I have been friends with a guy that lives in Toronto for a few years, I game with him a lot on Xbox live. He's in his mid 30's, been a Leafs fan for as long as he can remember as he was raised into it. He's die hard, he watches 50+ games per season, and I don't understand how he has done this for his entire life. 

 

I really feel for him sometimes, when being able to dump Clarkson at the deadline was a victory for the team and made him excessively happy, it makes me stop and appreciate how good we really have it here as Wings fans. 

 

The mounting frustrations, being a fan for 30 years and never seeing a cup raised, bad contract after bad contract, the fans that have been there for dozens of years and still call themselves Maple Leafs fans, yeah I feel like they really do deserve better. 

 

They really are the Lions of the NHL

#2579241 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

They should trade everyone in the offseason so they can go full M1-A1 Abrams next year.  I wonder if they could get the #1 or 2 overall for Nyquist, Tatar, and Dekeyser, plus a couple more guys?

There was a guy in Omaha, compulsive masturbater, he'd intentionally get a penalty and go to the box, and damned if he wouldn't mmmmmmmhmmmm!

No roster limits. Kindl doesn't need to be waived.

Unless he wants to rotate guys out to rest a bit there's no reason for him to play


 
Why do you think that?

Because he's not as good as the vets and it's dumb to play a lesser player because he shoots right

Cleary is Grand Pappy, he just sits and doesn't do much except talk

From what I've seen, the people who start screaming loudest about this stuff are usually guilty.

Marchenko is our # 7

 

Why the hell would they have him sitting in the press box instead of playing?

Sometimes I like to call abdelkader "Apple Fritter."

Apple Smacker




#2578090 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by DickieDunn on 03 March 2015 - 09:17 PM

I don't see where Pulkinnen fits into a healthy lineup, unless Jurco gets sent to GR.

Marchenko is at best their 7th best d-man. He will sit when everyone is healthy. His shooting hand doesn't trump ability.


 
He trumps Kindl and I don't care what you say.

Kronwall, Ericsson, Dekeyser, Quincey, Smith, and Zidlicky are ahead of Marchenko. Kindl will be the #7 so Marchenko can play instead of sit.
