Hopefully not. I want all the coaches challenges and off side reviews and shootouts banished for eternity lol.
- Cape Breton Bruins



I'd like a properly called game. I think things like catching offsides and icing can be easily solved with technology. A computer can tell if the puck is in the net even if the goalie's covering it. Given the pace of the game, I trust a computer a lot more than a linesman who's not even always in the right spot.

Doesn't even need to cost anyone their job, just assign those linesmen to reffing duty, and have more eyes on things that require actual brain power, and not super-human vision.

Also, no more putting the whistle away. Call the game right. It'll suck at first, but the players will get used to what they can and can't do, and it'll lead to a better product.

Yeah I get that but I've noticed that generally the 5-7 minute delays are detrimental to the flow of the game. If they can hammer down the process a little better then yes, get the call right every time, but some of these offside by a 1/4 inch situations not only halt the game, it reduces scoring too.

Did not see the game or highlights ............ so all I've heard (on the radio) this morning, is how the refs gifted the leafs with a weak call PP, late in the game, to hand them the two points.

Guess the NHL wants the leafs in the playoffs, to help the TV ratings, and revenues, to make up for the lack of Canadian teams in last year playoffs.




http://www.csnne.com/bost...-loss-toronto-maple-leafs


"It was also one of the most bogus penalty calls that you'll ever see deciding a late season NHL game with major playoff implications involved. "



"there’s greater hockey forces out there clearly pulling for the maple leafs to be in the playoffs this spring"








http://www.bostonherald.c...inch_closer_with_4_2_loss


"And it was ruined, as far as the Bruins were concerned, by a chintzy penalty call with less than three minutes left. "

"The B’s wondered how, with a dirty hit that could easily have been five minutes, they ended up with two minutes of 4-on-4."

Yes I think you're spot on here. The league can't handle themselves without the Laffs unfortunately. Makes them the most relevant team in hockey.

So now we can all agree that the Leafs have the support of the refs and the league

Therefore, they are in a better situation

If it makes you feel better ..use whatever you want. Print it out put it on your Wall .. bask in the Glory of the number

Maybe take the paper down off the wall once in a while and raise if above your head like its the Stanley Cup.

You do you Dops

Hey, you leaf fans make a HUGE DEAL about wining preliminary playoff series vs the Sens, even though the leafs never went on to win the Cup.................. you guys never stop talking about it.


When I point out the every other Canadain based team, except the leafs and the Jets, have at least made it to the SC Finals, in recent memory ........ leafs fans always claim it doesn't matter, if you don't win the Cup.

So which is it?

If its Leafs Vs Sens then the Leafs have gotten the better of the series

Sens went to a final..Great, didnt win
Leafs had some things go against them or they can probably get to a Final in 1993 and/or 2002

Given their play lately, you should be looking behind. Habs are distancing themselves, and the Bruins and Leafs... maybe NYI or Tampa, are closing in.
- Feeling Glucky?




Bruins are 4 points back, Ottawa has a game in hand. They play each other twice before the end of the season ............ these two games, and the one in hand are pretty much going to determine who finishes in 2nd ........... 1st is pretty much Montreal's to give away with a massive choke job, or something like an unfortunate injury to Price ........... neither of which I think will happen.



Tampa, Islanders of the leafs are just to far back, with too many teams to pass, with to short of a race track left in the season to seriously think they could grab Home Ice advantage for the first round.

I'd like to see the Senators fight it out with the Islanders/Lightning for the last wildcard spot. It's unfortunate to see a team playing such a poor brand of hockey high up in the standings.
- Feeling Glucky?




A "poor" brand, that has (so far) resulted in a .606 record ...... ninth best in the NHL.

That should be called a "top third of the league" winning brand of hockey.

It wasn't a "poor brand" when Burns was coaching the Leafs.

I honestly don't care who wins tonight, so long as it isn't a 3 point game. Both teams are catchable.

Another Leaf fan grasping the trivial in hopes of finding something that offers meaning to an insecure fan base.

Just relax. The Leafs have had a good season. The only thing that matters is the scoreboard and the Leafs are doing fine. Don't try to make it into more than what it is.

The only team the leafs have a chance of catching, in points, is the Bruins.

The leafs have no hope in hell of catching the Sens, but it should not be a big difference to them, if they manage to end up third in the Atlantic .......... as a first round match-up vs the Sens pretty much gives them a virtual home ice advantage even if the series starts in Ottawa....... because any leaf game in Ottawa, the CTC is always 50% plus filled with leaf fans.


The leafs right now have the better record, and have two games is hand on the Bruins ....... so for all intensive purposes, third place in the Atlantic is theirs right now, and theirs to keep if they just maintain their current rate of play .570.
