Nothing wrong with losing 2-1 rather than being destroyed.

I must say, I am enjoying watching this trainwreck..
This. If you're gonna lose, do it right

In summary, go Jays.
On the Philly broadcast tonight, it was mentioned that there were 3 remaining players in the NHL that were part of the Leafs last playoff squad.

That made it real to me. I simultaneously feel old and sad.

Poor Carlyle. 7-13-4 with the Ducks before getting fired and 4-8-2 with the Leafs.

11-21-6 overall.

Same here. I'm willing to wait and see what Carlyle can do with a full season. It's not an easy transition from run and gun to a defensive, structured style of game.

That said, there's definitely a character issue on the team right now. A whole lot of passengers, no pride, and no guts outside of a select few. If there aren't some major changes this off-season, it's going to be more of the same.

Whatever happened to Burke.........

getting guys who fit a psychological profile of being able to play in Toronto. It seems like he talks about guys who can play in Toronto and handle off the ice events. Is this his and his staff's biggest mistake in evaluating players. I remember him talking about how Gustavsson fitting a psychological profile of being able to play in a market like Toronto. I think it is safe to say there needs to be a change in evaluating players from that standpoint because they're clearly crumbling under this pressure and we are only talking about regular season.

It's still a really sad fact but if someone is going to tweet facts, at least get them right, lol.
Players from the playoffs: Antropov, Ponikarovsky, Stajan, Kaberle.

Played that season (but not in the POs): Colaiacovo, Wellwood.

Gill joined the Leafs in 2006-07.

EDIT: longshot beat me to it.

Phil just made me literally lol when he added the "Ha" at the end of the clip. What a piss

How the hell does Burke have the time to post on HFBoards after a loss like that??? Gaustad, Moen and Kelly???? Seriously you have less of an idea what is needed for this team than Burke does. Unless you are Brian Burke. Gaustad - what a great 4th line center - that's all the team needs - a 4th line plugger - but he's great on faceoffs! Moen? Doesn't this team already have Steckel? Kelly???? He SUCKS on any average to bad team.

Tough guys my GOD. If only Armstrong and Orr had been healthy this year. Army could have injured a couple guys with their heads down and Orr would have totally beat up Carkner again! YEAAAAHHH!!! AWESOME!!!!

Do you think the Kings would have given up Schenn and Simmonds for Kessel and Kadri? Would you have done it? Would the Kings have done it (probably not). That's what this team needs - real players - not more tough pluggers like ****ing Mike Brown. Trade Kessel plus or minus whatever for somebody like Dustin Brown, Bobby Ryan, Tuomo Ruutu or Eric Cole. Or Mike Richards - the Leafs need character and balls - not spineless dooshes like Phaneuf.

I don't mind a loss, the season's over and we can get a good pick now, but they should at least show up for more than 10 or 15 minutes.
