Its funny to hear you say that about hughson. He is a die hard leaf fan. I am so sick of him propping up the leafs with more powerful adjectives than what he says about the opposing team. The guy is a clown. 

cant say i agree with this one...hes a vancouver guy that also happens to love the bruins. Last year during the playoffs he legitimately wore black and gold during one of the broadcasts.

15 power plays! mostly discretionary, marginal crap and dives, while not calling some very malicious plays, and an unprecedented 2 PP's for 1 team in OT!, lol, 

another stellar job tonight guys, you both deserve all 3 stars of the game

Why does Wilson always hang that leg out when he hits?  Hit on Muzzin and Barrie were almost identical.  

Anyhow, bad break with the penalty on Marner, PK guys played awesome.  Can't let Ovi T it up from the top of the circle that many times without getting burned.

I don't know if that's correct Grim. I think Babcock has more input into all aspects of team management than most coaches.

His team in Detroit went against the grain and was the 1st team not to have an enforcer, the wings also had very low PIMs compared to the league average when he was coach

 

I could be wrong but in an interview last week when Babcock was asked about the zero retaliation from his team after the high hit on Matthews he said "who's gonna do it??"  It really seemed like he was throwing at Dubas' feet with that comment. This is  why I don't really believe this is 100% a Babcock issue.

I thought I'd check out where Ottawa was sitting in the league standings and pulled a muscle in my neck looking down. hehe

I have been saying it all along, no defense and no goaltending. And to that that a couple high paid so called superstars are underperforming, all it will take is an injury or two and yes there is a chance the laffs won't make the playoffs.

I bet the tissues are piling up in the basements of laff fans moms at a record pace 🤣

nice try refs, 6 PPs for the flyers including 1 in OT, and 4 of the 6 were Bull calls and your team still lost

instead of working on the PP, I thinks Babs should get Elvis Stojko or somebody to help us out with how to dive properly

The officiating really does seem one sided lately. I wonder how much of that is actual biased officiating and how much is the Leafs playing pond hockey, stick checking hockey versus actually getting close enough to physically take someone off the puck...heaven forbid.

it's not only the power play itself, it's the way PPs can change the momentum of the game

tonight for example, Leafs got the 1st PP, they didn't score, JT bricked it, but the Leafs buzzed for the rest of the period after the PP

last game the Leafs had the Flyers hemmed in until the penalties started.

I wish the refs would just stay out of it like they sometimes do in the playoffs, and let the teams play, unless it's flagrant and obvious, since the refs obviously have trouble distinguishing a real penalty from a dive

    • Hockey Night In Canada (NF)

      Hi all, After many attempts, finally got the rink up to playing standard. This year has been a nightmare to get it done. We had a great freeze up and then it dumped a ton of heavy, wet snow on the fresh ice.   Then it was all 0ºC to +5C º for a couple of weeks. Slush, ice heaves, rain, snow made for a lot of work this year, Plowing with the quad was almost useless as the surface was too rough but I did try.................... only for this to happen.

      I thought this topic might have some humourous tales to be told and who doesn't love a good laugh now and then. I'll start; I recently bought a leaf blower. I just got tired of raking leaves and sweeping the front of my house. My blower will also vacuum up loose debris, so I thought I would pick up the leaves along the garage door. What I didn't check was under the leaves, which had me pick up and mulch one of my 90lb Labrador Retriever's poop bags. I'll be SURE to check, before I decide to do t
