Can someone tell me how Shea Weber isn't in prison? That was beyond hockey what he did.

Burke, who took on the Leafs GM job in November 2008, with talk about a team that plays with the proper levels of "pugnacity, testosterone, truculence," said: "There's one philosophical difference, I like a rough team. That's the way I want it."

In the TSN article he said something along the lines of "I dictate the style of play that my team has, I don't have it dicated to me." ...in reference to Wilson. I'm sure someone else could probably provide a link.

People rate Callahan so highly as a leader, but hes got 9pts in 27 GP in the playoffs.

Leadership eh?

Alexander Ovechkin, Russia - 25 goals/25 assists in 37 games. That's leadership.

You guys do realize leadership isn't based on point totals, right?

I would rather have The Caps PR guy backing up Holtby than Danny Sabourin

Found it! Point #6...

http://www.tsn.ca/toronto/blogs/jonas_siegel/?id=392748

"6. Burke/Carlyle vs. Ron Wilson

"The one place where Ron Wilson and I were not on the same page is that central issue is how we play the game. I like to dictate how the game is played, I don't like to have it dictated to me. We're not big enough to play it my way, we're not big enough to play it Randy's way and that has to be addressed. That's not optional. We can't play the way Randy wants to play with this group. We have to make some changes. We have to get bigger. We have to get more hostile."

If 50 points in 37 playoff games isn't leadership then i don't know what is

Sounds like Wilsons ego gets ahead of him as usual...

I am so happy they're trying to force them to decide on who to have Chara defend, Ovi or Semin/Nicki.

I really wish Perreault were on the first line instead of Laich.

I was hoping this series would be considered unimportant enough that Emrick wasn't assigned to it.

Goddamnit.

Is it creepy that I hung up my Dale Hunter/al iafrate co-autographed undershirt, unwashed from the mid 90's, on my wall like 20 minutes ago?

lulz at you posturing as a wealthy intellectual because you think a fat half-wit who can't complete a sentence without making up his word is a resoundingly successful coach.
