Can't freaking wait. This is the first year I've been able to jump in on B's season tix. My brother in law and I got 10 games and managed to snag some to what I'm calling the "Black Out Drunk Mini Plan" which consists of tix to the Black Friday, New Years Eve and St Patrick's Day games.

I was just going to post this. A big part of our emphasis on being more physical. It's interesting how similar the Avs and Broncos are right now.

Broncos rubbing off the McDaniels stink and turning into a contender, Avs rubbing off the Sacco and Lacroix stink, turning into a contender.

Both teams have similar situations they have had revamped themselves from.
Getting tougher mentally and physically is crucial to future compete.

I wanna see so much damn hitting from both teams that others are calling us dirty because we hit too hard.

This is just a silly comment.

Except for the shortened season, we've been in the playoffs every single year. And it was only 2010 when we were in the Stanley Cup.

I'm going to venture a wild guess and say the comment was directed at the Leafs fan whose post he was responding to.

Oh Jesus, that was directed at the Leafs fan. He was showing a neat goal on a Flyers goalie, I prefaced it by saying I was not a Flyers fan while quoting said image.

Where exactly is the confusion? Considering the Leafs last won a cup in 1966-1967, haven't won a conference title nor a presidents trophy, haven't qualified for the in 8 of the last 9 seasons and haven't been to the conference finals since 1998-1999.

If you are going to be snippy then get the post intention correct.

I think we will be improved this year. They aren't going to win it or anything like that, but the defense is deeper, the PP will be more balanced and the bottom six is solid. The top six is weaker at wing, though.

What a tool. The reason for the .gif is that JVR and Schenn were traded for each other. The Leafs won that trade by a landslide. JVR puts in the goal as Schenn slides into the corner looking horribly inept.

The Leafs pay for every other team in the league, so you're welcome. They were in the playoffs pretty much every year before the 2004 lockout imposed a salary cap.

The Leafs took the Bruins (eventual Eastern conference winner) to 7 games two seasons ago, and were up 4-1 with 10 minutes to go in the third period. That was a pretty brutal loss, but they should have won that series. The Leafs were handicapped by a moron of a coach, Randy Carlyle, who dressed useless goons instead of MacArthur and Frattin, and played the most talented centre on the roster on a checking line (Grabovski) while letting Bozak (who is terrible) play on the top line, not to mention the ineffective systems.

The Leafs management has been really bad for a while now, Nonis is a useless GM, and Carlyle is the worst coach I could imagine. This summer has given some hope though, they improved their depth, and brought in a new GM while relegating Nonis to an assistant-GM role like Sherman got in Colorado. It's only a matter of time until Carlyle is fired and the Leafs can improve. Bernier and Reimer is one of the best goaltending duos in the league, they will drag the Leafs to the playoffs this year.
