You sound like a spoiled child who didn't get all 23 toys they wanted for one birthday. so youre suggesting we throw a fit and smash all our other stuff and keep whining till we lose the 6 cool shiny new toys we got, and get grounded to our room indefinitely...
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.
Once again, trying to stay away from politics and what not I'd say to you, don't tell me how to raise my non existent kid.
But with the amount of violence against girls/women by professional athletes and the way its covered in the media, if they didn't come out and apologize for this, the NHL couldn't say that they're doing everything in their power to change the negative narrative on women... which may or may not have something to do with the amount of dudes who think its okay to smack around a woman.
So get offended for people getting offended by something all you want man.
You're not going to change it by telling people if they don't like it, not to read it. I don't like feminists and having to be PC all the time either, but noones complaining about what they're saying on the ice.
It was in an interview.
He should think about what he says as it reflects not only upon him, but the maple leafs and the NHL itself.
If anybody here is an active reddit user, you should totally make referring to bad things as going maple leaf a forum or sub forum or whatever.
And for the socialmedia addicts, if you don't start making this a thing it'll be totally mapleleaf.
I really want this to spread around.
It would make my year every year until they win a cup... if they dont before I die, it will have made my life meaningful knowing I was there at its creation.
In all seriousness, if things come together in the near term for the Wings with Cup win number 12, and the playoff streak has stayed intact, how awesome is that?
It won't happen because kh won't over pay to bring in any players now whole our window is still open, before pav&z decline so much that they no longer carry the entire team. I'm joking, because thinking this way is a joke, and it makes me think of you as a clown, who needs to learn to juggle better. Now dance jester!
YES we're still crop topping it that's the only solution
Nice first post.
I try not to get too over excited about prospects. It really messed up my views on some players especially Abdelkader,E and Smith.
With AA though it's difficult not to think awesome because of the things your post said. I also read a snippet about the guys will to get better being very high.
In juniors he was on a stacked team putting up nearly a ppg from the third.or fourth line, he wanted a bigger role, so they traded him and the nest season he was right up there with the leagues scoring leaders.
The only knock I've ever read on him was that his hockeyIQ wasn't the greatest, but it was a random poster on a forum, and I've never seen anything that shows that about him.
Even if he doesn't become a top two c/w, his speed, size alone make him a great 3rd/4th line guy.
I hope they keep him at center, which unless we have a prospect come in and surpass all expectations, I think they will.
At least until they see what he can do in the NHL at c.
