FTFA:"It's going to have to come the slow and steady way, even if you're one of those who believes Steven Stamkos will do anything to become a Leaf when he's a free agent in 2016. "

I've not heard that rumor before. Allow me to give you my reaction, "AH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.... You jamokes think Stamkos will come to some sorry-ass loser organization after just leaving a sorry-ass loser organization!? AHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA."

For the playoffs, they normally change the name of the team from Leafs to Leaves. AMIRITE?!

The Bruins are one of the most entertaining teams to watch. Even though I just watched them blank my Flames 2-0 the other night.

The Bruins have everything in place to go deep again, and I sincerely hope they do.

Words can't describe how badly I want to see Big Z hand the Cup over to Jarome.
 
2013-12-19 01:17:39 PM
You know, this may be one of the worst seasons in Sabres' history, and they may have by a fair margin the worst record in the league, but I can still take some joy from the fact that they've still beaten the Leafs twice.

That and the draft.

I would love that a lot, but doing so means that Marchand and Julien win the cup again, and as something to live with every day for the rest of my life, I'd rather have anthrax.
 
2013-12-19 01:42:39 PM
The NHL should really think about putting a team in Toronto. After all, it's Canada's largest city and there are quite a bit of junior teams in the area that it could really hold a fan base. I know Buffalo and Ottawa are close by but they really aren't doing to good. Stupid Bettman has teams in Florida and Arizona but not Tononto.

GavinTheAlmighty: I would love that a lot, but doing so means that Marchand and Julien win the cup again, and as something to live with every day for the rest of my life, I'd rather have anthrax.


I totally get that.

But the pain of them winning the Cup the first time is probably the worst sting of all and there's nothing that can be done about that now.

Them winning again, while horrible for you, couldn't possibly sting as bad as that first time.


Thankfully for me, my most hated team ever, the Canucks, has never won.

But when they do, the pain will be unbearable.


I want to be like the Cigarette Smoking Man from X-files.

And Toronto might not be able to win the Calder Cup based on their showing against a Penguin's roster full of call-ups the other night.

They were pretty close to sending the Bruins packing last season...

I mean the comeback win was awesome and I was jumping around the house like a little kid, but the Leafs can beat Boston.

Having said that...

Let's Go, Bruins!

I remember exactly where I was.

It was my (soon to be) sister-in-law's rehearsal dinner.

Fortunately for me it was more of a cocktail party with food, but there I was, in the corner, my eyes glued to the screen, watching to see if the Flyers would make history.

I got drunker after the game ended.

Watched it from home... There was more than a few doors slammed and things thrown that night...

But then the Bruins swept the Flyers on their way to a Cup Championship the following year, so I got over it. : )

I still get a kick out of the way the Bruins demolished the Penguins last spring. Between that and the last-second heroics against the Leafs, they had one hell of a run.

I'm still happiest about the Hawks taking home the Cup, though... and they've been looking like they should have a good run this season. Even with Crawford out, Antti Raanta has been looking mighty good in the goal.

I wonder what the odds are for a rematch this year?

That's another thing I found oddly amusing... the Leafs won more playoff games against the Bruins than Pittsburgh and New York combined.

That was the best part of the whole playoffs last year for me...

I actually felt bad for Leafs fans, but I laughed and laughed and laughed at the misery of Pens fans after the sweep.

If the season ended today Toronto would still make the playoffs. They need to get their ass in gear if they want to keep it that way. That metropolitan division sucks!

I screamed "NOOO!", threw the dog's squeaky toy at the tv, then finished my beer, then congratulated everyone in the fark thread, and settled in for a good Bettman booing.

My neighbor heard all my screaming and profanities and called to ask if I was okay that night. It still hurts. But the Cup, oh that beautiful Cup.

Think I'm going to splurge next year and get Center Ice... Just back to work six months ago, so I can't justify it right now, but I get NESN and NBCSN, so I get my hockey fix.

Well you don't need it for Bs games being you live within the reach of NESN, but down here in FL it's pretty much a necessity to watch Bs games. I get NBCSN and NHL Network, but the last month or so there haven't been many Bs games on.

I've been moving to a new place slowly the last few months so I couldn't justify having it considering I wouldnt know which place I was staying at any given night.

Wow, this quickly turned into a Boston hate fest. Bottom line here is that leafs are a .500 team right now. It's looking more and more like their brief 7 game battle last spring was more a flash in the pan rather than the beginning of an era.  They have holes in their lineup. Good for them there is still a lot of season left.

There's a trade coming, and I think Franson is going to be front and center in it.  They need better presence in their own end more than anything else right now.  Their biggest problem is stopping the forecheck and getting the puck out, and man once they get going up ice can some of those guys fly.

/keep Reilly and Liles together though, cripes can they turn the play up ice in a hurry

I was just talking to Fatal the other day about this. You can get hockeystreams.com for a hundred bucks a year and it includes every hockey league you can think of and winter Olympic coverage all in hd. Much better deal IMO and it's good for pc's, tablets and phones too.

I was talking to my old lady about this tonight.

It sounds great, but now Center Ice is $100 and since I haven't felt the need to buy broadband for the house, I doubt I'd use it's full potential.

We bought an 80" TV the other day, so if I have to resort to watching it on my 5" phone or 10" tab...I wouldn't feel like it would be worth it.

Just made my last $39.99 early renewal Center Ice payment on this month's Directv bill. It's four months of billing statement that I'd rather not look at. Next year I'm going to attempt to get it free since they freely throw the NFL ticket around like a 2 cent lady of the night.

Franson has potential but he needs to use his size for more than just an incredibly powerful shot.  This is a guy that's taller than Shea Weber, but you'd never know it.  He needs to gain about 30 pounds and be a physical force on the ice.
 
2013-12-20 04:22:35 PM
This is the same Bruins team that just lost 4-2 to the Sabres, right? The last-place Sabres.
