No, but those one's weren't very good either, looked like practice jerseys.

I like the new jerseys. One issue that could be brought up for those with poorer eye sight the names on the jerseys are much smaller than before. My friend was asking me every 5 seconds who everyone was because he couldn't read the names. I mean its not really a big deal but if you are in the upper bowl and have less than normal eye sight I can see it being hard to read. A nitpicky thing but I am just sayin'....

Thought the same, almost like a collar. Never really cared about the Jersey but when I saw them yesterday I immediately thought they looked odd.

I love everything about the Jerseys (including the white collar) They are simply the best jerseys we've had since the early 90's version.

as for the game we really needed more people driving the net. hopefully that changes tonight with caputi and kulimin in the lineup.

Same applies to any player that is continuously trolled in game day threads.

Trolling is trolling, whether you are a fan or not.

Especially if he keeps up this lackluster performance.

Kaberle just seems overwhelmingly trepidness on the ice. I'm not going to lie either and try to be optomistic about Kabs. As Leaf fans we have a right to address concerns we have...and Kabs has been a concern since 2005 (lockout) going forward.

This isin't anything new FYI.

What do you want me to say? How he looked terrible on every power play he was on last night? That he doesn't look at all interested out on the ice? That he won't go into the corners to gain possession?

Give me a break. Besides, who said I would be talking about Kaberle after EVERY game? I doubt he plays as poorly as he did last night all season. If he DOES though, he deserves to be criticized after every performance.
The post is not restricted to anyone, but applies to everyone.

Certainly every player has stinkers, but anyone who suggests every game Kaberle plays is a stinker is trolling.

LOL

Okay so now that Toskala is gone, and we played so amazing without him, and we have Armstorng, Versteeg, and Brown, we're in the playoffs no problem.

Curious to see the excuses in December.

I know it's only one preseason game, but for the love of god Wilson needs to smarten up BIG time. Lets look at his mistakes so far this preseason

1. Not using camp to work on special teams: Our special teams were both dead last in the 09/10 season, and if we expect to make the playoffs, both areas need to be upgraded majorly. This should have been one of the first things he nailed home in camp.

2. The powerplay last night: He kept putting Kaberle/Phaneuf out together on the point, major mistake on his part. Teams know that Kaberle is a passer, and Phaneuf is a shooter, so they're going to pressure Kabs to make a bad bass, and Phaneuf to take an early shot. Its too predictable. If Wilson were smart (which he's not), he'd put 2 shooters out on the point on the PP (could have used a phaneuf/gunnarsson combo last night for example)

3. Lebda/Kaberle pairing last night: He put 2 offensive defencmen together who are softer then diaherra in their own end and have little to not concept of how to play defence. This resulted in a lot of turnovers last night. Again if wilson were smart he'd put kaberle out with an defensive defencmen who can cover up his mistakes.

4. Calling out vets in the preseason, yet he fails to take responsibility for his own actions.

I would recommend that some of you don't watch tonight, all this overreaction for a nothing pre-season game is getting silly. Puttin' the anal in analysis! I do like comments on the uniforms though.

Guys like you are hilarious

He played only 25 games! If Gusty had a great record, but Vesa was losing every game, then you're logic makes sense, but thats not what happened. Vesa sucked, Macdonald sucked, and so did Gusty.

Look up Vesa's numbers in Calgary, he played much better. Im not saying Vesa is a superstar goalie or anything, but its funny how people dont remember the Leafs play in their own zone was TERRIBLE last year.

We have the same over paid and under producing D corp we had last year. But somehow people think this year will be different.

That's exactly the approach I'd take about a player.

They are supposed to be the players we support, afterall they are on the team we are supposed to support here.

Are you for real that the monster sucks? 16-15-9, 2.87GAA, .905%. Those are pretty decent numbers for a rookie espically one playing on a **** team.

Yes, Vesa put up good numbers in Calgary. It doesnt prove that hes a good goalie though, it just proves he's a lot more comfortable playing the backup. He can't handle the pressure of being a #1 guy, and he sure as heck couldnt hack it in Toronto.

this is the guy first on the ice apparently, taking his captaincy very seriously and you want to convince people in here that he mailed it in in front of 18,000 because he's a veteran of a whopping 5 years. lol

he had a bad game, it's only a preseason game, he needs to be better and I expect he will be better. a lot better. that's what happened.
I don't think you understand the term evidence. You certainly don't understand the term good argument.

As for getting beat-- we've already established that. It was, however, a half hearted effort.

Ulf I can admit I'm a little jaded when it comes to Kaberle because I've been watching him since his first game as a Leaf...and I ride him a little bit harder then say Lebda or Lashoff because of his tenure, experience, and how "skilled" he's deemed to be. I feel that he's very overrated, and when he displays that, I feel , my right as a Leaf fan is to state how I'm feeling. It's also ok for other Leaf fans to disagree, or debate.

However - if an Ottawa fan was saying what I was saying I'd be screaming bloody murder at him and defending our boys. The banter on here is internal. I'm displeased with Kabs. end of story.

The $1 preseason lineup card I bought on my way inside was one of the best dollars I've ever spent.

Agreed entirely. It's odd though because we saw him drill someone last pre-season (Islanders rookie) so he's not opposed to rocking people at this point.

I love the new jerseys. They will eventually grow on everyone. A bit of 1967 in there. I like when they go a little retro vs. the newish type of jerseys like the preds, or stars, or oilers - ewww!

You could totally tell Phaneuf was half assing it on the play (and thats being generous). He had Foligno lined up, he either could have rocked him, or just pushed him off the puck, he did neither of those things and allowed him to skate by. Then when Phaneuf was out of position instead of running back to get back into position, he WALKS back to the goal, making little to no effort to stop Folgino from scoring.

the oilers have partially seen the light with their home jersey, it's like a bad version of their 80's jersey but still not bad at all.

Kaberle and his Double Chin

Can you be a Physically Fit Pro Athlete and still have a Double Chin like our Tomas. Wilson commented on his Conditioning last year, do you think that's a factor in his poor play in the second half of the season for the last several years?

Maybe he just has no chin, or very little of one to speak of
