Hmmmm interesting that the Islanders are doing better without JT.
He looks smaller in a leaf jersey.

Not really. Their coaching is sooo much better. Trotz is great. Weight was a joke.

For Tavares sake alone I hope the Isles somehow face the Leaves in the first round and sweep JT right outta there in 4 routs. From all appearances The guy handled his pending free agency like a complete prick.

I don’t fault a guy for wanting to test the waters and go play at home for his favourite childhood team. In fact I applaud the system that permits after a guy has put in his time with whoever drafted him. But after that many years, and being the captain and franchise player, a guy who ownership and management treated well.....to not just tell the team that he appreciates them for all they’ve done for him but he’s testing the waters because he really would love to play at home, and if he gets a legit offer he’s gone.....total douche. At least let the guys who made you a multi-millionaire attempt to save face and salvage a shitty situation by moving you at the deadline.

But no. He only cares about John. I hope the hockey gods put a career hex on him and the closest he ever gets to the big dance is a game 7 conference final loss.

It's interesting to me that suddenly it was a lock all along Tavares was going to Toronto and never wanted to stay in Long Island. I NEVER heard that prior to July 1st. Toronto was not seen as a team that had much of a chance. It was San Jose, Tampa or the Islanders in almost everyone's mind.

It's very clear even the night before July 1st, Tavares was still considering the Islanders. They were a strong contender all along. If Toronto wasn't as strong in terms of a chance of winning, he never goes there. This was far from just a hometown thing.

Save your breath about Torontos Defence

While less content fans continue to be loudly outspoken about Torontos Defence, Torontos Defence has been quietly proving to be one of the leagues most consistent coming up on the 15 game mark in the season.

Reference points:
-Toronto has 5th best Goal Differential In the league
-Toronto tied for 10th best record in Goals against
-Toronto has 12th best record in shots against
-Toronto has 6th best Pentalty Kill percentage in the league
-Morgan Rielly (D) Leads all league Defenceman in points
-Ron Hainsey (D) sits tied for 6th best +/- of all NHL Defenceman while Kasperi Kapanen (F) sits in the top 20 +/- of all NHL players.

Yet you still have no D or a goalie that has a record of stepping up when it matters the most.

No D? Seen Rielly play?
The Ga and shots are coming down every day.
And "Matters Most" means you have to ignore his Vezina type numbers now. LOL. Maybe they should trade for Bobrovsky. What a playoff record he has and is only asking for 10 million per on a new contract.

So if the Toronto stinks, you think he still goes there? Of course not.
And no one thought he'd go to the Leaves anyways. So where was that thought-process the week leading-up to his signing.

The problem with Toronto is not D, goaltending. It is the coach.

1. Zach Hyman, 21:24


That was the forward last night with the most TOI. approx. 6 hours prior to the game yesterday, Babcock mentioned the issue with the poor home record was low shooting % at home. What's the answer? Play a guy who is useless offensively the most of course!

Kapanen can't get PP time though and Hyman can get over 4 minutes PP time per game..

duh...

huh...

So now it’s the coach’s fault, right?

The same coach you guys were crowing about when he signed there after his glory years and multiple Cups in Detroit? The same Olympic Gold Medal-winning coach that everyone in Hogtown said was going to take their wretched team back to glory years only their grandfathers had witnessed?

Yeah, how’s that going?

BTW, Paul Maurice says hi after Winnipeg’s playoff run last year - with no Generational messiah like Matthews or McJesus. Just a team with good talent depth up front and a solid blueline to go with superior goaltending - things your team does not have.

Thing is, I see your comments above as the bow-wave of the next chapter in the Sportsnet/TSN slobber-fest. Shit-can Babcock! It’s the coach’s fault! If only we had a coach with the pedigree to take us to the promised land... hey wait a minute! Who just came on the market??? Of COURSE Quenneville wants to coach the Leaves! It’ll be his dream come true!!! Just a phone call from Shanahan, and it’s a done deal! Blablahblahblah.....

Let’s just say that I find your latest wet fart and it’s timing...

...a little funny-smelling.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

I suppose in fairness, nobody thought the Leaves would be able to keep Nylander while signing Tavares to a UFA contract.

This has turned out to be true.
