You spend WAY too much time worrying what he does or doesn't say.

As to Quinn and Fletcher - there were NO prospects at those times - they would have both been completely roasted here!

I give Burke next year - we should have a team that is easily in the playoffs next year (4th - 6th). From what I see, a couple of key offseason moves and we're there.

Burke is an idiot....and I do not care as long as he stops making stupid free agent signings. number 24 looked horrible and I expect his minutes to drop if he does not pick it up...Franson in Lilies out.

A good start for coach Carlyle...loved the energy. Win the next one and we will roll.
I am still in awe with most of you posters!!!

LISTEN CAREFULLY... Burke Does'nt do any drafting!!!!! He leaves it to the scouts!!!

Ontario players. Kadri!, Blacker! Mckegg!, Percy! leivo! Broll! etc etc...Honourable mention to Biggs who's whole family is from Ontario!!! He was born in the U.S. but he is Ontario through and though...

I missed the game, coukd anyone comment on what Carlyle's 1st game behind the bench was like. What were the things he did right? Did Connolly skate on the top line? Did the Leafs make many mistakes? Play a risky style of game?

That's a load of *********.

According to several people in this thread, present company included, the Leafs are the worst team in the conference.

Quinn/Fletcher was a different era. The leafs didn't need to 'develop' they "bought" UFA with their big budget. And Fletcher made some incredible trades (Sundin and Gilmour) in which he traded prospects. Those were great trades - much better then what Kessel trade will turn out to be.

At any rate, how can one knock those GMs and teams that made playoff runs and claim this team that hasn't got into the playoffs once in 4 years is somehow better?

I'm saying Burke retool has been average (and the fact that he hasn't made playoffs some would say below average but I recognize the prospect pool so rank it average).

Carlyle outcoached Cunneyworth. Line-matched the crap out of Montreal. Connolly skated on the third line. Connolly - Steckel - Kulemin. Leafs didn't make too many mistakes, the D looked calm back there and didn't pinch all the time.

None of the players you listed are playing in the NHL....Biggs is a US born player. played for the USA as well.

I also said free agent signings....not drafts!

Just watched the coach's corner. Don has completely lost his mind.

I wasn't born in Canada,and it absolutely blows my mind that this clown is so famous and popular here. He's totally insane.

Wait, did someone just appreciate Bozak? You'd swear this board hates him, but he's actually a pretty good player.

As for Biggs...I don't give a rats ass where he was born!!!!


His family is from ontario( did you even watch the draft)?

I always said that imaginary line is what seperates us from the americans...Biggs is more Canadian than what his birth certificate or what his passport says!!!

his heart came from Canada!!!!!
Same with Parise!!!!

I'm saying Sundin and Gilmour trades are > Kessel trade.

I didn't make judgement on the kessel trade as being good or bad, just that the trade for Sundin and Gilmour were better.

He was shaky at first but the bad plays he made in the beginning thankfully didn't cost the team any goals against. After giving up the first goal, he really buckled down and made some great saves for the team. I particularly liked Carlyle's comments about the goaltending which I think is a message to his team of where the accountability lies in the locker room with each person. He said it's not the goalie's job to win games for his team, it's his job to give his team a chance to win and he gave credit to Gus for doing just that.

Kessel trade was not a great example to post...we lost that trade and bad. Seguin, Hamilton,and Knight. Ask Burke if he would trade Kessel for that package right now.

TSN has Carlyle's post game comments so far but neither TSN or Leafs site have player's post game comment. I saw the post game interview with Lupul after the game so there should definitely be player post game comments up on the site later today.

I'm still in disbelief that they even allow the guy to spout that kind of bigotry on a program that thousands of children tune into every weekend, let alone present him as some sort of 'icon'.

The segment is called "Coach's Corner", and yet all he ever even seems to do anymore is rant and rave about his personal disputes and sing the praises of the military. It's a shame Burke wasn't successful in getting him pulled off the air in favour of someone who might actually be able to provide some modicum of insight into the game.
