But I don't see that happening if they play...and they picked a Leaf to be a contender for every trophy!

Man, Burke liked to say Toronto was a tough place to play b/c of all the media/fan attention...but it's the opposite, too much adoration. In Canucks-world, apparently there are still tickets available for Game 1...we want a Cup, end of story.

Shit is hilarious.
Nope, gotta go with Boston over the Laffers


Ducks -
Priced from: $29.99 USD
1,937 tickets left
:eh:

Hawks -
Priced from: $20.00 USD
1,734 tickets left
:o

Kings -
Priced from: $10.00 USD
2,413 tickets left
:wow:

Canucks -
Priced from: $115.00 USD
254 tickets left
:(

I'm gonna have to get down to Cali for some Canucks games....

In every other case I'd be with you, but gauging my schadenfreude meter, a Leafs first round loss hits a 10, but post 2011, a Bruins loss hits 11, Spinal Tap style! I grant, this is as much based on living in enemy territory.

Spent some time today listening to Toronto talk media. Interesting climate there. It seems that most agree on a few things:

1) Reimer has not proven he is playoff ready
2) Reimer has not played well enough
3) Reimer has let in some pretty bad goals on a consistent basis
4) The team would be stronger in net with a proven number one.

Where they disagree and it seems pretty split is whether Luongo is that guy. The debate has begun as to whether Nonis missed the boat in not getting the Luongo deal done and some now openly saying with Luongo in net they would be able to beat the Bruins (they obviously didn't watch our series against the Bruins :mrgreen: )

Then those on the other side. Most of whom seem to reluctantly admit Luongo would be a good addition but their reasons for not wanting to get him are strange.

1) Biggest reason is they don't want to do anything to help Vancouver out of their cap hell mess. Let Vancouver clean up their own mess
2) Don't want to spent 5 million on a goalie because you don't need to spend that much to be successful. Want to spend the money on fixing other problems even though they don't have cap hell approaching.

But the debate is getting interesting now that they are likely to get knocked out in the next game or two. Shannon was asked if he were running the Leafs if he would trade Luongo straight up for Diana. He said in a heartbeat. Someone asked him why he would want to do Vancouver such a big favour. He responded trading Diana to the Canucks is not doing them a favour. I LOL at that one.

Anyway it seems the Toronto media is staring to now critique the no trade by Nonis and he is starting to take some heat. Some however have said he had to find out what he had in Reimer and now he knows. Reimer needs to be a back up the story goes and learn from one of the best in the world. I don't think Reimer would make a good back up. He needs to play a lot and if memory serves me well I think he plays pretty poorly after being off for a while. But I love now how the debate is starting.

Diana is also taking a lot of heat for his bonehead plays at the wrong time in games, something we saw a lot of in Calgary. Some are now clamouring for him to be traded so the Leafs can get a decent return and cap reduction.

I love how they make the playoffs and the fans develop these unreasonable expectations them implode when they fail to beat Boston.

Its got to be troubling for u a Spidey fighting the urge to cheer for a team that took away probably the only chance that we will both have in our lifetime to actually win a Stanley Cup... Be Honest Spidey how good does it feel to cheer for Brad Marchand,Gregory Campbell watching Claude Julien behind the bench or Adam McQuaid do their thing on the ice... Do you tune into the Bruins tv network in between periods to listen to the great tv commentator Mike Milbury...

Do u remember what Milbury said about us 2 yrs ago??? god bless you Spidey for putting everything that Boston put this city through during the final and the aftermath and being able to cheer for them with those memories burned in your head... Sorta like the Riot...

The talk in Toronto is just that, talk. Spurred on by a very emotional series with the B's.

Tonight Reimer was outstanding and you'll probably hear on Toronto radio how everything is good again and Reimer is the future.

I gotta hand it to the Laughs. Winning 2 in Boston ain't easy. Can they win the next one to push it to game 7? Would be a heck of a story if they could. It's pretty intriguing in a puke-in-your-mouth-and-taste-your-lunch sort of way.

You are looking like a genius here Paddy. The Leafs are slaying it right now. Nonis was right to walk away from taking that Luongo contract. He's getting quality goaltending.
