- Comment on Price among Habs not making trip to Chicago (with video) (2014-04-09 08:53:07)
Leafs issue is a rotten cote - Dion isn't a team guy - just cares about him and his pimping clothes. Kessel is an offensive force but totally not a leader when he mumbles to the mic. They've no quiet calm leaders a la pleks etc. the other thing is wtf is with having a Colton Orr on your roster? For what? That team is nowhere until they get a true 1 and 2 defenseman - Dion and Gunnarson - uh no. They can probably retool rather than rebuild - move a young D and young Fwds and some picks for a real 1 D They could always throw 10 mill a year at PK.

Does the team look better without Murray? Against a skating team Mind you. How solid is weaver btw - I don't see him being any worse than gorges. Be nice to keep him next year - grt iq. And am hoping vanek might stay - he's gotta be having a blast. Only minor issue - we don't seem to match up that well w Tampa - but those games will all be close

Travis Moen. Gio. Murray. All vets - all terrible last night. But basically - this coach by hanging on to Murray shows he's lost. It's a FAST game now - Weaver is better by far. When Gio and Moen healthy scratches? When?

Lineup questions abound. Can someone remind me what Bournival did wrong ? I can't believe how far Eller has fallen but don't we need centres w size? He did well w Gllys - did he totally lose it or not grt/ever rotating linemates?? I guess Gio/pleks/vanek Pacioretty/DD/Gallagher Galych /Eller/Bourque Bournival /briere/weise

Can we all just agree MT has no clue? No one on this team is improving - no one. A meritocracy only works on merit - he's completely not doing that so all that can be left is confusion. Like a parent w shifting discipline etc. Not playing Galych etc is a crime. They're still somehow scrape points but this will be unsuccessful long term

What about Bourque actually throwing a couple hits? My kids asked what's wrong w Bourque? Why is he trying Dad? Our biggest problem is our vets - Gio briere and Moen and the fact we have NOTHING for forwards in Hamilton. Our middle D are not great ie Gorges and Emelin. Plus Gorges banal chirping in the room - that's not leadership I hope Bournival is ok - I love the way he plays - grt hockey sense. Eller:(. I love him but am starting to wonder if he doesn't have the mental side of the game / hockey sense And finally - what kind of numberswould pleks have w real wingers? Think you wouldn't be depressed watching Gio tee it up from the corner and never pass? Like never. He's awful.

Saw the clip of Gorges exhorting his colleagues they're " too soft" Leadership like that falls flat in any room - real leaders are excellent players like Toews etc. everyone in the room is thinking shut up you're at best a 5th D. This team is in dire straits - we call up guys and its 180 lb Louis Leblanc - all the other teams have a 6"4 guy lying around. This BS about Timmons being such a genius - puhlease. Remember David Fisher? Kostitsyns? The whole thing is a mess But clearly he's lost the room - when Bournival was flying and had most goals per TOI - he sat him. He lets Bourque go on and on and have PP time and only after 15 games of crap - he sits him. Markova is overplayed, meaningless line shuffling A mess. And we're always too proud to do a real rebuild. All the players have regressed - that's not an accident.

I played and I couldn't for the life of me play the off side - it's obvious Emelin has same prob - put him back he's be fine. As for the rest - wow - Gorges looked lost too tonight. I don't get Parros - he's just awful. I don't get Bournival not getting ice time. I don't get Bourque averaging 15 mins a game all the time THEN healthy scratch. I don't get how pitifully small this team. And Frankie B - bless him but he's done. I don't get Moen either. Price Subban pleks and a few others hide a lot of crap here And lastly - I don't get letting a punk like Kadri run your guys all night - hard to watch. They will be tight to make playoffs but I'd like to have an intelligent coach too.

When's Rene Bourque gonna be benched? It's unbelievable. And MT gives him PP time and on occasion is out for the last minute! Between Gio, Bourque, Moen, Murray, white, briere etc - it's incredible the record we do have - PK and Carey PK did a really stupid thing - he should have missed 2 or 3 shifts to get message thru But just listening to MT - he's not a Mensa member
- Comment on About last … yuck! 2014 has to be better than that (2014-01-01 09:47:03)
I'm all do being positive but let's also be realistic. Price is covering a lot of problems - 100-45 I. Shots directed? We're the leafs now. MT has lost this group bc frankly he's not very smart. At one point Bournival was the MOST productive player bye mins played. And he works his butt off. And we've got to watch Bourque on the PP? Gionta gets PP time? W one goal in his last 28 or whatever? Players hate when they can't figure it out - that guy doesn't hustle nor produce but w plays and I don't? For Emelin - Some guys brains cannot handle playing the off side - he's clearly one of them. I don't see the point in Diaz Murray and Bouillion - bring up the kids. And the line mixing all the time - no one can get a rhythm He's a terrible coach and were a grinding team? max waving his one hand on the stick? Bourque loafing? The room is lost bc you see killer workers like Prust and Gallagher even not playing well and our GM really blew it w Briere and some other moves They're possession numbers point to a major swoon and missing the playoffs now Maybe PK and Price get them in
