  1. Other Canadian teams know /see it like it is outside the gta. Nice shot taken.

    "We've had players come in that didn't get here because they have those great sticks, great reads naturally. That has to be developed, and it's going to take time to develop that," Maurice told reporters. "The mistakes that I made, I did just a horrible job in relation to my colleague (Toronto Maple Leafs coach) Mike Babcock in selling our age and the mistakes.

    "When (the Maple Leafs) have lost a game, it's just a wonderful learning experience, and they win and it's a triumph of character. We have the opposite thing going on here. But that's my choice, because I don't ever want to walk into a season and say we're not here to win the Stanley Cup."

    According to NHLNumbers.com, the Maple Leafs are the league's eighth-youngest club (26.8 years old on average), while the Jets are the second-youngest, at 25.8.

    1. Good stuff from the Jets coach. Should be some good fodder for ol' crotch. Wonder who's side he'll take?

    2. I always liked Maurice's candor...except when he was a leaf.

      The big question will be how much of the 22 minute pre-game show will be spent talking leaf even when they don't play for another 3 days?

    1. Wow. Simply beautiful. Hopefully the rest of Canada will see this tonight on the nationally televised game.

    2. SFU loves TFS because they can use him as ammo to shit on the Habs.

      Unfortunately, I don't think the rest of Canada matters much to the inwardly looking gta. I think they might acknowledge there is another country of 300 million or so just south of them that they sell stuff to.

      Delete
    4. No doubt the SFU has had a hate on for the ROC for many decades. Being supporters of losers raises their bias level to sickening heights. I've predicted, many times, that it will get worse, way worse, before it never gets better. These sick fucks double down every Saturday on their hate for the 6 Canadian teams. They don't give a fuck.

      e.g..

      VAN - they cheered on the broons over the Canucks in the SC Finals, their glee at the treatment of the Sedans was putrid
      EDM - they feel justified in slagging the Oilers restructuring, no mirrors in the GTA
      CAL - they prop up Lanny and Dougie as great leaf, Flames Cup winners
      WPG - imagine if Laine got a tenth of the coverage, they will shill in Matthews regardless
      OTT - the 'battle of Ontario' where the Sens have been far better, including a SC Finals, never mentioned, cue 1967
      MTL - I'll leave it at the Boom Boom Geoffrion tribute ceremony disgustingly not covered, in order to spend 100% of their show covering tie fucking domi

      Not to mention they were cheering for Team USA and phat Phil in Sochi as one of "their boys". Fucking pukes.

      Delete
    7. Sochi, yeah, I remember that scumbag Heely kept chanting 'Kessel just needs 1 to tie it up" . Sick POS. They didn't care one iota about Canada or TFS making Olympic history - he didn't serve their anti=Hab purpose then. Then consesus was any goalie could have won gold with the team in front of him. Only when it suits their self-fellating modus-operandi.

      Delete
    8. The score was 1-0 Canada at the time. What a mathematical geniass.

      Delete
    9. The SFU wanted Bernier on the Olympic team. Bernier.

      You'd think theyd've learned their lesson with the(Ir) Cujo fiasco, where it took Jacques Martin to tell Pat Quinn he erred in shilling his leaf goalie over the patriotic and non-traitorous thing to do and play Brodeur, the second best goalie in the world, at the time. (waynEgo fucking over Patrick Roy was also traitorous but waynEgo had become an American by then, so to me, he did not represent my country).

    Speaking of the gta, I watched a piece on the National last night about how, pretty soon, nobody but the filthy rich will be able to afford to live in Toronto because of skyrocketing housing prices and rents. You could buy 4 or 5 nice properties in New Brunswick for what you pay for a single family there. Maybe the millenials will find out other places exist outside Hogtown. We need young skilled people down here, check it out!

I M hiding my ass and streaming the cbc again tonight sonlets hope they go easy on the leaf Bull shit love. And I agree completely with earlier comments - fucking leaf never even expect to win...when they don't it is a learning process for a young team...when they actually win they are fucking world bearers. The most deluded fucking bunch of losers ever. Babs is onto a beauty winner too...he has an answer for everything and he is an absolute representation of everything that is wrong with the city of Toronto. Deluded bunch of fucks...

  7. When you called the Sedins the Sedans, I thought yeah they should just be called Volvos. The Canucks have got a lot of mileage out of them and they tend to play pretty safe hockey. Actually Volvo could name a couple of vehicles after them, the H22 and D33 (I think, not sure which one is which number).

    1. Agree, which is why I corrected myself and did not remove/replace my post because Sedans just seemed fitting.

  19. - not a single leaf logo in the intro vid

    - a DDD sighting though

    - mclame worried about CHé

    - snet has some new howdy doody guy on Habs games

    - kypreosuck should never comment about contribution

    - friedman tries to be funny, funniest thing, his hair colour

    - during TDD the snet crew said HRH didn’t want to be a Hab (zero proof)

    - kypreosuck ‘no question about that’ line is lame, mclame-ish lame

    - hahahrudey seems totally lost to make an informed comment, about the Habs

    - howdy doody is taller than KidA, two things, gel and a very long forehead

    - media capital of the world and no ref-cam, 4k or 360ºVR

    - why do these wads always talk about ‘swagger’?

    - mclame calls the CH tonight’s anchor (um, try the last 50 years pud)

    - man I love Mario Lemieux, best player ever, move to Montréal Mario!

    - the pic of Mario behind the CH bench with The Flower being ovation’d, cool

    - kypreosuck, when asked about the Jets, talks leaf

    - side note: how great were Paul Maurice’s comments about the whining excuse maker Blabs?

    - oops, my mistake EDM game will be in 360ºVR

    - never thought I’d see an hnit Burrows love-in (considering the shit the SFUs have spewed about him)

    - Torts piece, (by the horrible christine ‘nepotism’ simpleton)

    - Could anyone imagine Torts as a Habs coach? I’d just love to see him tell mario tremblay to fuck off

    - mclame, aka mouth-full-of-ol-crotch-jizz drops in a ‘never wrong’ about his partner in slime

    - so, to answer the earlier Q today, hnit dropped the ’t’ in hnit tonight, so far

    Benn=J&B - so many Whiskey song options, but I'm going off the chart with Irish Rovers - Wasn't That a Party!? Coulda Benn the Whiskey, mighta Benn the gin. Coulda Benn the 3 or 4 six packs..

  74. Forgot to mention (blame the Negroni);

    Here's how you know the SFU are leaf-only-leaf-always.

    They show a few seconds of ol' crotch showing mclame how the strings will be pulled (note mclame had no jacket on so as to better tie the strings to his blue leaf-tattooed balls).

    So their show and tell comes up and mclame leads ol' crotch with 'what trade did you like?’. mclame does one of his lame eye rolls and says ‘wait, we’ll get to you Habs fans’. Like he knows the clown show duo will find a way to rub hockey fans but come back with a little something, because them. What pure fucking douchebags.

    Back to the game…
