Leaf fans are cheering for a win, but accepting of a loss.
"Tankers" are cheering for a loss, and not accepting of anything else.

I didn't get to watch the game but good to see Kadri get a goal + shootout winner.

Seems like there is a bit of complaining going on here about Kadri and winning the game. People need to be realistic, Leafs are not going to lose every game and they are STILL 7th last with 3 points out of 4th last and the three teams behind us each have 2 games on us. And you can't really complain a potential core piece for us helps us win a game.

He never should have been sent down in the first place and I'll stick by it.

On a side note, I find it absolutely ridiculous Steckel and Crabb were #1/2 in forwards TOI. I don't care how hard you are trying to match lines, it is ridiculous 4th liners are playing that much.

This has probably been discussed already but why did Steckel play more minutes than Kessel? That seems kinda weird. Is that going to be life in Carlyle's world now?

This whole "skill" to draft quality with lower round picks is BS. It's luck, nothing else. If teams knew the player was going to be as good as he turned out to be, they would have been picked in the first round. Drafting the likes of Datsyk, Lucic, Thomas was just that. Blind luck.

Gotta love Kadri... all the haters want him to fail and he brings his "A" game. Choke on that, Burkie. Yes, you.

Im all for a high pick, but if you can't appreciate a performance like that from a recent highly drafted player there's something wrong with you.

Why would Burke draft Kadri if he wanted to watch him fail? Does. Not. Compute.

he doesn't want him to fail? when kadri is ready he will be in the NHL, just because leaf fans look at where he was drafted and other players around him are now doesn't mean he should be ready. Its not like theres a chart, a player is ready to play in the NHL when he is ready, Kadri is not. If Burke wanted Kadri to fail he would have traded him for other assets, Burke hasn't given up on Kadri... idk why Leaf nation has (or at least some people have).

Skimmed through most of the thread, Naz's goal was dirty but missed the game.

How was his game as a whole?

Looks like you got me wrong. My post was in response to post #182. Should've quoted that.

You're right, let me fix it.

Nasty I believe that's the biggest flack associated with Carlyle. He's a huge line matcher and is known to do it to a fault.

They were always out against Kovy and he played like 28 minutes tonight, which is pretty ridiculous for a forward. They did do a pretty good job held him pointless and he was -3.

2. Create arbitrary rules which ensure no top player will ever sign here
3. Overpay for 3rd liners and 6th d-men
4. Overpay for "back up plans"
5. Ignore team needs

Those other teams you mentioned had a combination of good fortune in late rounds, great in free agency, or solid at making trades at the right time to better the team. Burke hasnt been able to do any of those things.

Since we are going to miss the playoffs year after year, you would think we would have drafted at least one elite piece of talent by now. But we only have Kessel to show for all the sucking.
Just a few things:
-Everyone overpays in free agency. Thats the tradeoff: you get a free asset, but you overpay
-When did burke ever ignore high talent?
-When did burke ever ignore team needs? And I dont mean #1C, #1D and #1G. Those players have so many suitors that they can choose to go anywhere they want and still get a boatload of money, and no one wants to play in TO right now. Unless you overpay big.

But yea, I was disappointed with todays results. I knew calling up kadri was a mistake, he always makes an impact in his first few games.

This doesn't make sense. Nobody is saying 7-10 is a suicide move, we are saying picking top 5 is better than picking 7-10. Why win useless games when we have a shot at Galy/Grigo/Yakapov?

Kadri is the man! Burke didn't bring him up before because he's a risky player, meanwhile we're 3rd in GA... Kiss my @$$ Burke.. Fix your tie
