In your opinion without doing research on google which player has delivered the most elbows to the head so far this season?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2021 03:11:20
I think I'd rather Hutchinson over "occasional" save Dave. I'll admit I was bashing Brodie his first 5-10 games, now I think he's pretty solid. Rittich has lost the puck too many times tonight please make me feel better about this guy casual, lol

Agree1 Disagree2

21 Apr 2021 09:37:00
Give him team. New city, new team. Only his second nhl team he’s ever played on, imagine the emotions he’s going through rn. He’ll bounce back

Agree2 Disagree0

He was so bad last night. Let in 3 goals that classify as “that terrible goal that goes in once a month” in one game. One of the 2 better get it together soon. Fred looks like he’s getting closer atleast.

Agree3 Disagree2

A healthy Andersen has proved to be more then competent. They have 3 nhl caliber goalies who can get hott. 1 of the 3 is bound to go on a hott streak and that’s the one you play. Dave has had hot stretches In Calgary. Campbell has had them in in both LA and Toronto. Andersen won a series for Anaheim and his lack of success should be blamed on the team and not him.

Sunday night Campbell was okay and Holtby was exceptional. Canucks win. Last night Rittich was terrible and Holtby was good. Canucks win. Leafs don’t need exceptional goaltending. The have good offense and the D is far better than in years past. Just need solid. make the saves you should make and make a cpl others at key times. Give them a chance to win every night and they will win a lot. But can’t be letting 1,2 or 3 softies in a night.

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Apr 2021 19:35:51
I sure hope he turns it around. I still think Campbell will be ok.

Can Craig Button do more color over Mike Johnson please!!!...

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 16:42:11
Is he good Sosa? We don’t have him often for leafs but he is on TSN radio a lot here. I find him knowledgeable and has some unique insight into the business side as an exGM but find he can be annoying too.

And I also like MJ as a radio guest but haven’t heard much of him as a colour guy.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 17:35:32
MJ does lots of color for the Habs on TSN. , and I can't stand him lol. So, for me was just refreshing hearing someone else. he's no Ray Ferraro. But ill take Button over Johnson anyway. ill even take John Garrett over him.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 19:24:19
Johnson does a better job to be honest it’s just his voice is more annoying.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 19:24:46
I’ll take Sergio momesso over any of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 20:27:39
Johnson for me is nails on a chalkboard haha.
I miss Harry Neale haha.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 22:30:10
Ferraro is the best color guy by far, love him and Miller as a duo.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2021 01:23:02
TSS. I agree. IMO, Miller shoulda been the hier to Bob Cole.

Congratulations to Patrick Marleau..


Awesome career.. however, is it Hall of Fame worthy?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 07:09:46
It will be based solely on the fact he is the all time leader in games played.

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 14:35:31
Interesting discussion Sosa. I could see both him getting in and not however, It’s not like he’s Matt Cullen. I mean Cullen had 1500+ games as a 3rd/ 4th liner. So for Arguments sake, say he got to 1678, he’s definitely not a hall of famer (has Cups though) . So I wouldn’t say Marleau would only get in based on GP record

Marleau is pushing 600 goals, 1200 pts, multiple time all star, multiple Olympic gold medals, World Cup gold, 15 time 20G scorer, 6 time 30G scorer, and a 44G year.

I’m not 100-% sold on if he should be in or not, but if he gets in, he has merit outside of simple longevity.

Agree1 Disagree1

20 Apr 2021 17:38:21
Ya i'm on the fence about him. He has had a really good career, can't deny that. to bad no cup however.
I think there are better guys than him that aren't in., also guys that aren't as good, that are. Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 19:27:11
So marleau breaks a 40 plus year old record thst one of the absolute legends of the game held. and Cullen didn’t. how is that even a comparison?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 21:47:16
I think You know what I mean. You saying Patrick Marleau would only get in the Hall of Fame because he played the most games is diminishing a great career. If a guy like Cullen did it and got in the hall of fame with bottom 6 numbers, then I’d agree with you. If a guy with Marleaus accomplishments gets in the Hall, it’s not simply because he existed for a lot of games. Almost 600G and 1200PTS. I hope you can understand that one. My apologies.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2021 00:24:32
And yeah Sosa. I get exactly what you mean. It’s so unpredictable. The other thing I’ll say to you that I hope doesn’t spark an unnecessary debate with someone else is that character seems to matter in these inductions, right or wrong. I like the HOF, in any sport to be about how great a player was on the field/ ice/ Ring etc. But guys that aren’t likeable or out spoken seem to be left out or made to wait a LONG time more often than not.

I’ve never heard anyone have a single bad word to say about Patty and he’s never said or done anything that could be considered even mildly controversial so I think that will work to his advantage. Not saying it should, but it seems to often work that way.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Apr 2021 02:54:09
Cullen didn’t do it so we will never know but if he had broke the record then I say he would have been in the hall too. there are much better players then marleau who are not In there. and he wouldn’t be either if not for for being the all time leader in games played so because solely of this I say he gets in.

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Apr 2021 01:14:31
Romanov has IMO exceeded expectations this year.. He won't be a top point guy, but I see him as the second coming of Vladimir Konstantinov.. with a bit more offense..
He will in the future get some Norris votes.. may not win one.. but he is going to be a good one for years.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 07:12:20
His point production will increase won’t be a paul Coffey for sure but he will put up decent offensive numbers. his frame is so solid. when he hits you, you know it.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2021 01:49:28
Unbelievable win from the Canucks tonight !!
The leafs won't ever win a cup ! They are the new San Jose Sharks of the early 2000 era.

Agree1 Disagree1

19 Apr 2021 05:06:50
Well let's hope so, however, its one game.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 Apr 2021 12:15:34
Was amazing what the Canucks did just putting up a fight. But did you watch the game? Or just see the result? Leafs dominated in possession, zone time, shots, scoring chances, hit multiple posts. Holtby was unbelievable. It’s not an excuse, it was a game they need to win, and not to take anything away from Vancouver, it was an amazing feat, but people are talking about it like it was some epic embarrassing game. very simply, they got goalied.

And for a goalie to be off for 3 weeks and then have to play behind an exhausted, out of practice team, would be so hard. What Holtby did as an individual was absolutely incredible. He could have let in 8 last night and it would have been understandable. All the credit in the world to a battle like that.

Agree3 Disagree0

19 Apr 2021 22:50:42
@Sampsons right. Holtby was absolutely phenomenal. Hats off to the Nucks though (cept Edler), but that Holtby windmill save was remarkable on top of everything else he did.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Apr 2021 22:06:45
Habby.. or any anyone..
What do you think is wrong with the Habs??? I'm watching this game against the Sens, and they just aren't good at all.. I prefer the way they played under Julien.. is it time for me to just admit this team isn't that good.. I thought at the beginning of the year this team looked like a contender....
I think the pieces are there to be a strong team, but something is jus wrong..
I don't buy the excuse of to many games in a short period of time.. lots of teams are dealing with a crappy schedule..

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2021 14:37:48
My opinion, they’re a really competitive team that works hard but lacks game breakers. Looks like possibly they have a cpl on the cusp with Suzuki and hopefully Caufield. But when you’re a team that competes with better teams purely off your will and fight, and then lose a guy like Gallagher who is the engine of that game, it hurts.

I think teams that play like that but don’t have the game breakers will be tough outs for other teams but I don’t see them winning. The Islanders are a team built like that (outside of Barzal) have a ton of guys that work so hard every night but they also have Barry Trotz running systems. They’re the only team I see winning without some big star power.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2021 14:58:17
Unlike every other team who has success Montreal since the early 1980s have tried and roll 4 lines every game. now in that span they did win two cups but in large part it was due to the fact they had the best goalie in the world to bail them out and the fact that it was helluva lot easier to score goals so the advantage of having the best goalie and playing against everyone else who didn’t was a much larger advantage at that time. Right now if you look at the teams who are tops in the league and at least the majority of the cup champions since they all had a top line who played much more then everyone else. With this approach do even matthew’s and mcdavid put up the numbers they do now in Montreal? I don’t think so. considering instead of playing 22 mins a game they would be playing 18mins and on top of that would only be out for half a power play each time. Montreal will never have a point per game player again if they continue this way they play like they have 3 3rd lines and when was the last time a 3rd line player had 82 points?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2021 15:04:02
In order to play this way they need at least 2 more goal scorers in the lineup toffoli and Anderson were great adds and maybe Caufied can be a miracle for them soon, but if all 3 can be 25 to 30 goal scorers going forward you still need at least one more.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2021 18:13:04
Ya, hopefully the philosophy in Montreal changes one of these years. The last time this team had a game breaker was who? Guy Lafleur? that's a whole different era. Lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2021 19:28:36
Well they have had some b level game breakers since then bobby smith mats naslund richer damphousse kovalev. but again they were alll forced to share the prime scoring minutes with another line or two. For this system to work you need a solid goal scorer on every line.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Apr 2021 20:26:30
I get that Habby. so with what we have, who would you like to see get 21 22 mins a night?
Also, maybe its just me, but Eric Staal, I believe has made the team worse., i'd prefer to have Jake Evans out there. Staal just doesn't fit with this team IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2021 01:53:41
Until you can put a goal scorer on each line you just have to stack your top two lines with who you think are your best players and continue to put them out there in places they can produce offense and keep playing them there, mcdavid doesn’t get put down on the 3rd or 4th line if he doesn’t have a good game. like the habs would do with kk or Suzuki. Stall doesn’t look good yet but I wouldn’t give up on him yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Apr 2021 20:01:04
I remember a few years ago, on this site, I said that Panarin was only good because of Kane, and that once in Columbus he'd be a 50 point guy.. WOW was I wrong...this guy is awesome

The Rangers have some scary good peices on this team. along with Panarin,. Buschnevich looks like he's becoming a star, Zabinawhatever , can score at will( against Philly) Lafrennier and Kakko growing.. and the emergence of Adam Fox as a star, this team may become a fun team to watch. For Rangers fans.


Anyway. What I originally wanted to know

Who would ya take

Panarin vs Kucherov( healthy)

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2021 10:53:23
Paniran for sure IMO.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Apr 2021 14:59:37
I think you have to go with a healthy kucherov but it’s about as close as it gets really.
