Believe me, I was tempted to correct the guy, too. But I'd rather not take a chance on blowing our cover....

“They had their backup goalie in net for the second straight game. Pretty important note.

Islanders were pretty well rested from their light skate against a midget team the night before. Pretty good warm up coming back from the break.”

Post like these make it hard. Your team lost. They (frank)ing sucked your defense was shoddy and your forwards crapped the bed. You couldn’t score a goal against a team you say sucked in the same sentence. That’s not your back up goaltenders fault. Suck it up buttercup😂

Leafs are a great team but jeez gimmea(frank)ingbreak.

That was a good read. This cracked me up...Trotz said. “Obviously we had inside trading with Lou knowing those guys. I knew ‘Marty’ a little bit, but I didn’t know Leo very well, plus I can’t understand him half the time. I wasn’t too sure. Lou explained it to me the reasons, but I wasn’t sure. Now I’m sure. I understand fully.”

Yup I remember that as well. They just don’t have any reason to come here right now after the ass kicking The Isles handed the Leafs last night.

Hopefully the game in February goes well for us

BUT this is gold;


Today @ 4:37 PM ET
There really isn't an excuse for a team like the Leafs to lose to a team like the Islanders. But it does make sense. Last night was the game the Islanders had circled on the calendar this year. Game 7 of the Stanley cup finals wouldn't have meant as much as this game(you know, if the Islanders were making the playoffs)... for the Leafs it was just another game against a bottom-dweller, and they took it easy. Definitely didn't help that their backup had played the night before, but he's not the reason they didn't score.

Top teams underestimate teams like the Isles all the time.
- Feeling Glucky?


The Leafs kept trying to feed Taveres pucks in the first period, I think that has a bit to do with it. They weren't playing their game, they were trying to get Tavares a hat trick.

Believe me they(some of them)know we’re here. That was before we even played them. There’s some real winners over there. They have a good team but you would think they won multiple cups with some of the posts I’ve read today and yesterday. Team hasn’t even made it out of the first round for God’s sake we’ve had more playoff success then them in the last four years😂. Team is good not great and they seem to think Tavares will lead them to the promised land. They’ll learn he has a penchant for nose diving when he’s needed most.

How about a Komarov and Martin swap for the two? According to Leafs fans their our best players I’ll just assume Chiarelli agrees.

I pointed out tampa can play any style of game and hedman shut tavares down and they have mcdougna playing great defensively too. That tampa team is the real deal and going to be tough to beat and if the leafs do beat them it will tak a toll and then they will most likely get a caps team that can really hit hard. Leafs are soft in fact one of their posters said a guy on carolina said they are soft below their own hashmarks

Team isn’t built for a tough game. Built for speed and scoring goals. Playoffs are a defensive grind it out kind of hockey they have been for the last decade whether they can adapt to that or not remains to be seen. They have cap space they can add some defensive grinder types at the deadline but if and when they face Boston or Tampa it’ll be a tough series for them. Honestly I’d love to face them in the first round if this team really gets going and either these kids really get going or we add some depth. It wouldn’t be a cake walk for them and I’m not basing that on yesterday’s game.

Teams have said the isles are hard to play against and physical and they have been consistent at it. If barzal keeps this up they will be even better, the kid seems to have figured out what trotz wants and is shooting it a lot more. Im having fun with leafs fans

He just traded McDavid’s BFF for the guy that broke his collarbone and then chirped him about it. And to add insult to injury, he took on cap doing it.

For those questioning the Brandon Manning acquisition, we can report that GM Peter Chiarelli received Connor McDavid's blessing on adding the D-man involved in the collision that broke McDavid's collarbone back in 2016.

They just can’t accept they lost over there😂

“It was the Islanders Stanley Cup.” “They had last nights game penciled in on their calendar.” “It meant so much more to the islanders than the Leafs.”

Yeah the leafs didn’t care that Tavares was playing his former team. No big deal. Damn Skippy it was a big game and you better bet your arse it was for both teams especially Tavares. As far as saying it was just another game for the leafs we’ll they didn’t show up and played like crap and the islanders capitalized on it. Period. Has nothing to do with back up goalies when you can’t score a goal. Bunch of (frank)ing babies😂😂😂😂
