The fundamentals like “don’t play hockey like you want to lose.” That was some of the worst hockey I’ve seen in my life if not the worst last season. It’s a shame we had two legitimate first line centers and Weight just couldn’t figure out or communicate how to play a lick of defense. It was embarrassing.

Cappy, Weight, and Todd Bowels went to the same coaching school. Not one of these guys could make adjustments. NY sure seems to love lousy coaches.

Yeah......funny how all Leafs fan say isles fans are just salty. But, when former players are chirping it’s pretty obvious what a scum move it was. Better off in the long run.....I’d rather guys that wanna play for the isles.

I almost vomited last night when Goring was saying how lucky we were to have him under such a great contract.

Seriously watch him next time we play. One of the slowest players on the team. Start, finish, whatever. Agree to disagree but remember my opinion matters more.
- Cptmjl



Hahahah. I’ll def watch. I’m def not a huge fan either way. I’d rather see the kids get experience. This is the year to do so. I don’t think this new ownership are gonna pinch pennies and be afraid to eat a year of the ELC. I think they’re serious about putting together a competitive product.

Was a huge fan of Goring and I get it he’s a company man but he’s so over the top for the last couple of seasons. It’s time for the guy to hang’em up.

I gotta agree with you. He’s out of it. I saw him in the airport last year (i was going to Miami and he was flying to Tampa), and he was going through security and they decided to pull him aside to pat him down. I was obviously watching cause it was Butch Goring. He looked out of it.....like he didn’t know how to follow their directions. lol. He was prob drunk at 11am...

How long before Rick Dipietro slides into that seat?

Sbisa shouldn’t be playing over anyone really. Even Pelech and mayfield are young enough that we need to see what they have to decide how to move forward. This team is more than likely not doing shat this season no reason to play these veteran players we KNOW suck. Literally makes zero sense.

I’ve bumped into him a couple times at games and he seemed pretty toxic every time. That’s not a myth.

My personal opinion is they are going to keep a guy like Sbisa to mentor some of the young guys on the ways of the NHL. It’s certainly not to teach them the game. This season is gonna be a throw away but they’ll never admit it as they need to sell tickets.

I was actually one of mayfields biggest defenders for some time. Then he started playing like absolute dog shat the 2nd half of last season and his contract is🤮
- Cptmjl

The days of defensemen that can't skate are long-dead. Toews should be in the top-six when the season starts, but instead you know that we'll get Seidenberg or Sbisa because veterans.

Yep! this is the year to play as many young players as possible. Players like Nelson need to be given a very short leash this year.

Then Lou would be no better than Garth. Toews needs to be top 4.

are you guys insane? Hickey is probably the best all around dman on the team. But mean does everything correct. Testiment to that he was Plus 20 on team with all minuses. Im sorry he isnt 6'4 and 240lbs but reality is he probably has thrown the hardest hits on team over last few years.

I think Sbisa will be signed at 7th dman b/c we will need him when Boychuk needs maintenance day or hurt. Sbisa is pretty solid and serviceable.

Pelech and Mayfield are the 2 guys have yet to prove they belong. Toews has made case to play over both of them.

My D pairings are
Leddy Pulock
Hickey Toews
Boychuk Sbisa/Mayfield

You guys get so hung up on size of dman that you dont realize you need a good mix. Krug, McAvoy, Ryan Ellis are all Hickey size players. You sound like Mike Milbury when he passed on Zach Parise or when the experts on TSN were saying Blackhawks should maybe not draft Patrick Kane and should look at Kyle Turris and JVR instead in 2017 draft. (yes i know im talking forward but making a point)

In the New NHL , Size of player isnt as important as it use to be. Unless of course you a freak like Byfyglien of size and skill.

For the record the conversation had nothing to do with hickeys size. If you read what Capt and I were discussing it was his speed. That being said just because Hickey is the best overall dmen on the isles (in your opinion) it ain’t sayin much.


Also, it’s a bit much putting Hickey and Mcavoy, Krug, Ellis, Kane, Etc etc in the same sentence.
