    There wasn't anything, really. I'm just don't see it as that big of a deal. Carrick hasn't done much wrong, either, and Borgman's been alright. They're probably trying to include one of them in a trade (most likely Carrick) so they need ice time.

    My biggest problem with the "rotation" (as you have probably guessed) is not with who is part of it but who isn't :wink:

    Yeah but that's beating a dead horse at this point. It's why I haven't mentioned the name Hyman here in a while. Learned to accept the things I cannot change.

    Leafs probably didn't deserve 2 points against Vancouver on Saturday but deserved 4 points from Columbus and Ottawa. I guess 3 out of that is fair but last night was domination and they still somehow blew it.

    It's becoming a trend I don't like, late-game goals for the opposition.

    Terrible pinch by Rielly on the GWG and an equally head-scratching decision by Hainsey on the resulting 3 on 1.

    But, never should have got to that point. CAnderson did not steal this one, the Leafs had multiple opportunities to lay an 8-2 beatdown on them, but right now the whole Forward corps is in a funk.

    Related note, I think I've reached the age where I can't yell at the top of my lungs at sporting events anymore. My throat is sore as shit from yelling out comparisons of Ottawa and Las Vegas' records to Dion Phaneuf.

    Really bad by Rielly but I think Hainsey just had an "oh shit" moment after it, which, isn't the point of having a 36 year old veteran around the fact that he knows how to remain calm in bad situations like that?

    The leafs fans all agree that they need veteran D men. And Mathews is best friends with wildly inexperienced D man Zach Werenski.

    Match made in heaven.

    It's funny that the Toronto media have become competent and boring while the foreign hockey media have apparently undergone lobotomies.

    I, for one, don't think the idea of Toronto trading their #1C is that crazy. The return could be huge. They might even get a #1C in return.

    Replace Dougie Hamilton with Auston Matthews (and the Bruins logo with the Leafs logo) :D

    If you read the Sun, sure. Most Leaf beat guys and girls are fine these days. They use advanced stats, they don't tow any company lines for the most part, they don't throw out ridiculous adjectives to describe fourth liners and third pair guys, and nary a mention of hot dogs.

    They've been looking for a 1C for forever!

    Dear Mother of God. Undoubtedly the single stupidest hockey related item I have ever read.

    And yes, I am including my Holtby post in that category.

    This worked out perfectly for the Jackets.

    Gahdamnit Freddy Gauthier is not a fucking NHL player. Why is Babcock doing this? Why?
