Sick of hearing we got worse cause we're.older and slower when for 3 seasons we have been younger and faster than almost every team in the league and haven't won a playoff round.

Trolls. (Quotes aren’t working to reply specifically- you know who you are).

Please get back under your bridge where you belong.
Or at least back in your own thread
Thanks.

poop mate. Im on beer i dont even know what number and have been bottling my harvest of weed from plant 1 into jars. I just would like to know why people say what they do. Besides their over inflated self worth that their opinion actually (frank)ing matters.

Didn't say Leafs got worse.. did state the obvious, they got slower but nastier. Don't think they need to add any more slow guys.

I think they will be better overall and that's the goal.

There is no denying Leafs got bigger and nastier... but they also got a hell'uva lot slower... Enough on adding pylons..

And skating NR on the wing with Jumbo slow is not smart. Have Kerfoot between NR and Wayne.

- dozerD10


Two quick questions:

1. How well did the team do with just a bunch of really fast players?
2. Do the 30 other teams or the Cup winning teams or the teams that win a few rounds in the playoffs just have lightning fast, skilled guys?


PS...Pavelski, who is one of the worst skaters in the league, killed it for Dallas in the POs. Winning > Fast!

Vesey will be in the marlies lineup more than leafs. Vesey is only injury replacement
- Geddy

Disagree. I think Dubas expects Vesey to score 20 goals. For the Leafs. Or the prorated version of it in a shortened season.

I might go to bed early and not see many Sharks games ever, but I never remember Thornton being a burner? He's had a fantastic career without elite foot speed, how is he suddenly unplayable because he's a slower skater?

Just don't think they need to add say, someone like Pears going forward.

In my Elliotte Friedman voice...

I'm wondering if Corey Perry is waiting for the Leafs to clear cap space so he can sign the same contract Wayne Simmonds did.
