As I said.. If you're going to lose, at least go down swinging.

I do feel bad for Gus, but he came into a very tough situation. He's annointed as the best goalie outside of the NHL, has heart problems, his mother dies, and on top of that people expect him to carry a pretty terribad Leafs team (last season and the season before) on his shoulders. The guy just looks completely deflated now, and I wish him well wherever he lands. But he's done here.

You do realize this entire team is brutal??? You do right? Are you watching the same game? What do we have like 5 shots now? Gus played bad. But put Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Miller, etc. in net for the Leafs this season or for the past few years and this team would still be fighting for a playoff position. The team blows from top to bottom. I get sick and tired of all the 'fans' chirping at the goalies when the entire team (forwards and defense) have played so brutal for most of the season. I'm not suggesting that either Reimer or Gus have played well, they both are young and struggling. But let's spread the blame, there is plenty of it to go around.

Never in my life have I seen a professional athlete, show so much emotion, on a regular basis

You can tell he has alot of passion, and competitiveness, a heck of alot more then most of the guys playing in front of him. I hope he gets picked up by a team who can play defense, like Phoenix, because I think he really does offer more than we've seen.

Someone should keep an eye on Gus, he looks like he wants to hang himself

Looking at 10 straight home losses. How is that even possible in this day of alleged parity?

Only expansion teams absorb 10 home loss streaks.

Best thing ever. A total collapse like this is the only thing that will shut Burke up.

I remember in late January how he was saying he had 2 number 1 goalies. Alrighty then.

What's he gonna highlight this offseason? How good they were from February on? Good -- don't need to hear him yap.
