I was wondering when you'd mention that. Any idea why he is still in? I understand the need for size but he can't skate with NHL players, not good or even average ones anyway. That's a pretty big problem for a defenseman.

On the Phrankenstein vs. Tavares hit, I just saw the replay on PB. Whether you are in the "dirty hit" or "not dirty hit" camp, you have to wonder how Dion runs away from answering the bell, coughs up the puck to avoid being a man, and the puck winds up in the net, and he won't hear it from his team tomorrow. That's about as un-Cherry hockey as it gets. It was nice to see Carkner stick up for John. Hopefully Okposo took notes.

Anyone think there will ever come a time that someone on this club will step up and take Dion out for the stuff he has pulled? It is still an unsettled score, and the fact he is such a gutless chicken, always shirking big players but taking on smaller guys.

Nice to see Boyes possibly making a home on the second unit. Keep him there and get John a real wing and I am much happier.

Don't we still owe Dion a tap or two for the Okposo blindside a few per seasons ago?

Yeah, there's some history with Dion and the Isles.

And yet Phaneuf still took liberties WHILE CARKNER WAS ON THE ICE.

I'm sorry but the arguments for goonery are absolutely asinine.

Having said that, Carkner has shown to be a legit 3rd pairing dmen without his other "skills" being taken into account.

Carkner should have still dropped Phaneuf. Next time.

Don't waste a defenseman. Send Boulton after him.

I'd actually like to see Matt Martin take him out. He is still a bit of an unknown so Dion might be willing to drop them.

The Dion needs to ****ing pay. He paid on the scoring sheet tonight. Next time he should pay with a fist to his face. No need to run him and resort to his gutless tactics. Just pummel him.

for what? doing his job?
if tavares didnt bend/lean towards the boards with dion right on his ass, the hit wouldnt even be talked about. tavares was the one that made that an ugly play.

You guys are taking this a little too far.. it was a hockey play, not some attack on your star player. Phaneuf isn't some goon who goes after your star players, news flash, hes one of our star players. Sorry your player got shaken up from being taken hard into the boards.

Glad you guys have Carkner aka Orr's human punching bag. I'm sure those two will drop em next time.

Dion should be the object of scorn and ridicule for his embarassing giveaway. Saw a hit coming, so he just flipped the puck into the slot and ran away. Pathetic.

That is all.

Hmm. Funny. If Carkner is a human punching bag why did Dion run from him like a little princess?

Sorry to hear that you consider Phaneuf a "star" player but the fact is he is dirty and has done this many times.

I think Martin went after Phaneuf for that one. I wonder how Steve Simmonds feel right now after JT had 2 assists for the Isles tonight. Sorry Steve, Tavares won't be playing for the Leafs any time soon.

Dion is no star. And he did flip the puck away in sheer fear and panic. Maybe it wasn't vicious or headhunting, it was Tavares, he IS the franchise and Dion should know better.

Actually, it was in large part ex-Leafs Boyes and Aucoin, and ex-Canuck Grabner. It's a conspiracy!

Just watched the replays on NHL tonight. Not a comment was made. Silent recap during the game replay, and then a commercial. You have to believe if the score was the other way around, and the leafs scored 7,that would be A big chunk of the show. Sad coverage...

dion phaneuf IS an NHL star. you might not like that fact.....but he is.
a "franchise player" cant get hit? iginla never got hit? yzerman never got hit? taylor, hall, nash, ovechkin, stamkos, seguin, crosby, malkin.....arent allowed to be hit?
just keep that thought in mind when martin hits zajac, or some other islanders player ( who is not a "star" ) hits some other teams "franchise" player.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing when I saw it. Right away I said to myself, "Why is JVR congratulating Moulson?"

I still kick myself think we could have JVR right now instead of Failey

Leafs fan coming in peace:

Your team deserved to win tonight, the islanders outplayed the leafs for the majority. Bad goaltending, and a poor team work ethic cost us the game, no excuses, just have to get preped for the rangers on saturday.

As for Phaneuf, he's the type of player that is a questionable hitter, some of hits are clean but theres also equal that are dirty/headshots, the guy needs to cool it because hes being too vicious out there.
