Are you buds with every kid who played the same sport as you did in the same province? There's nothing "natural" about it.

Maybe I need to watch it again but it didnt appear to me that Dion "jumped" Brayden. Phaneuf hit him cleanly and then Brayden went after Dion and Dion responded in kind which created an even bigger mess between other players. Did not see Phaneuf going out of his way to attack Schenn at all.

Its all blown out of proportion, as usual.

I dont think that was the reason, it must have been from frustration but that pissed me off actually.

At $6.5m a year they'd get peanuts for Dion. Good luck replacing a 25min/gm guy easily.

Burke will not trade Dion, he made him the Captain of the Leafs.

anyone can play 25min, what good is the 25min if you suck and your team is losing?

beauchemin played over 25min, he must be the next ray bourque

If this is true, it could be a big part of why this team had suddenly collapsed the last 2 months.

Most of your posts I don't agree with, but this one absolutely. Here's some stats from this season

Dion Phaneuf
TOR D
GP 78
Hits 207 (This stat is quite good for him)
Blocks 122 (Quite good as well)
Missed Shots 88 (This is horrendous)
Giveaways 73 (Horrible as well, Gardiner has 72 which is not good either)
Shooting percentage 5.2%

Just watching the games you can see Dion handles the puck way too much and plays way too many minutes.

Brady thinks the root cause of it all is a feud between Dion Phaneuf and Luke Schenn. The crazy part is he said it was obvious that this feud was the reason Phaneuf jumped Brayden Schenn last night!

Brady then said it was time Leafs fans 'connected the dots' and that he is certain Phaneuf and Schenn won't be on the same team next year.

What do you guys think?

From afar, it seems Ron Wilson and Schenn didnt get along. Phaneuf was probably loyal to Wilson as the coach made him captain. Its rumoured Aulie was traded because of a rift with Phaneuf. Schenn and Aulie are the same age and from Sakatchewan, seems natural they'd be buds.

This might seem like a soap opera. But it might also be an important riddle that needs to be solved before the Leafs can figure out how they turn the ship around. It would almost be encouraging if a solvable dressing room feud was what caused the collapse.

Here is the link where Brady makes the allegations. I know its hard to listen to the guy for longer than 10 mins, fortunately he pretty much starts into it at the beginning and gets more into it for about 10 mins. Then I had to turn him off.

Those are alot of accusations with absolutely no proof. From both you and Brady.
It is pretty pathetic that that seems to be acceptable these days.

These dressing room problems rumors have come up from a few reporters. It's not just Brady. Andy Frost said on Leafs Talk once that he's not sure what happens in the dressing rooms, but it is certainly a possibility.

That's a very far cry from "absolutely there are and it's between Schenn and Phaneuf".

I'm not saying there aren't dressing room issues. I don't know what happens behind closed doors.
What I'm saying is people should have some proof before they make accusations and shouldn't present speculation as fact.

This **** is getting worse and worse everyday.

I can't even believe it anymore.

Where the **** would Schenn even get off getting into a 'riff' with a guy who's 7 years older, and been in the league much longer.

The leafs suck because they have been a bad team all year, but it was given a blind eye while they were lucky and winning games with horseshoes.


The team is just this bad. Feel free to find my posts from November - January



Locker room rifts mean **** all when you just suck as a whole. Dion Phaneuf is a dodo bird

Calling out his play or vice versa
Leadership issues
Attitude issues

There's a lot of reasons why a rift could develop. If Schenn is the last guy off the ice every time and Dion tries to lecture him, Schenn could get irritated, could bite back at Dion.

I don't really care one way or another I think Burke needs to cull the roster and surrond the youngsters with character guys who know what's what in the league. Mike Knuble would fit in T.O.

Absolutely, but Phaneuf has had rumors of problems in the Calgary dressing room as well so naturally the first finger would be pointed at him. Really this is just trying to find out why the massive collapse happened.

I don't know Brady's rapport with the Leafs too well, but he claims to have "sources".

Phaneuf isn`t the problem. He was one of they very best dmen in the entire league prior to the all-star break. Phaneuf, Kessel and Lupul carried this team on their backs for half the season. Problem is that when these guys slipped just a little which was bound to happen the next wave of players weren`t anywhere close to good enough. Then it has just spiralled on from there.

On every team in the league there is guys that don`t get along the best. Winning simply solves most of those issues though.

This sounds like complete BS in my opinion. If this were to be true, I would want Phaneuf shipped out asap.

I've been thinking the same since the onset of the teams decline. It brought back shades of Tucker/Corson/Green issues and how they affected the team back in the day. Obviously it's pure speculation, but could it cause the team to collapse if true? I think it could. If I was a player in that locker room and Dion walked in and changed the radio, I wouldn't like him one bit. To assume you own a room day 1 can work on a bunch of sheep, but not on a bunch of lions. Respect (as i hope we all know) is earned, not gifted.
