Tomas Tatar is gonna be a good goal-scorer. Really hope the Red Wings don't relegate him to the fourth line all season. Ugh.

Man, Tropp is a dumbass. Such a dumb fight to start, as fun as brawls are. When you have a history of dumb as **** plays (namely the college incident that got him suspended) and concussion, I don't want to see you getting knocked the **** out and starting ill-timed brawls. I really want him on our 4th line, he'd be a better piece in that role than most.

High quality ******** by Cathal Kelly of The Star

http://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/...ate_kelly.html

Quote:
You can’t blame John Scott for this.
Here’s a guy whose NHL penalty minutes-to-points ratio is 60-to-1. He spends his Saturday mornings turning to people in the lineup at the grocery store and saying “Wanna go?” He can’t help himself.

You can’t blame Sabres coach Ron Rolston for pulling the chain that releases Scott from his cage once every four games or so. Rolston is working to a Code — one that says once Corey Tropp had his skull tenderized by Jamie Devane, it’s on Buffalo to answer back.

Someone should write the Code down and put it in a cerlox binder, so that we can all watch as coaches flip through a bunch of highlighted pages, going from “Situation: Ran my goalie” to “Response: Begin lobbing tear gas into opposing bench.”

We can’t blame Dave Clarkson for jumping the boards or Phil Kessel for using his stick like a boning knife.

(We can sort of blame Ryan Miller. Because odds are if you’re blaming Ryan Miller for anything, you’re on moral ground so high you’ll need a rope ladder to get down off it.)

When we look at the mess that will not come to be known as the St. Thomas of Villanova’s Day Massacre (check your Calendar of Saints Days), we know who’s really to blame. It’s Buffalo.

Not the team. The whole city.

We spend a lot of time in sports talking about “natural” rivalries. You know what starts a “natural” rivalry? Resource scarcity. And do you know how they resolve those sorts of rivalries? With mass murder.

There are no natural rivalries in sports, only contrived ones.

No Torontonian who has ever set foot in Montreal hates Montreal. It’s impossible. One week in Montreal, and you’ll spend the rest of your life half-seriously telling people you’re moving to Montreal some day. Then you’re going to wear a crucifix so big it’s banging against your belt buckle and dare people to say something about it.

Conversely, no Torontonian has ever set foot in Ottawa. Anyone who’s ever headed up there never returns. We’re not even sure “Ottawa” exists. Best guess? It’s a combination movie lot/gulag, where they film the longest, most boring serial in TV history and broadcast it on CPAC.
Toronto’s only natural rival is itself. This is why we spend all our time yelling at each other about things none of us really care about.

“Tell me everything you know about the Scarborough subway extension.”

“Right. Well, I’m pretty sure it runs through Scarborough and … that’s about it.”

“And are you for it or against it?”

“Against.”

“And the Leafs are thinking of …”

“Against.”

“I haven’t told you what …”

“AGAINST!”

Toronto could suck enough juice out of its own internal rivalry to keep hydro turbines running until the sun explodes, but then there’s Buffalo.
Buffalo doesn’t like us all that much. Why? No idea. We’ve never done anything to them but spill over their borders when the dollar’s down and create the false impression that people live there.

We’ve always like Buffalo because there’s plenty of parking and . . . that’s pretty much it. Parking.

On the sports level, they have the Bills. Which is not just a cross to bear — it’s a cross spiked with thumb tacks and layered in hot sauce. Eventually, that’ll be our cross to bear instead, and I guess they’ll be upset about that too.

Their baseball team exists only so that Ricky Romero has a place to spend his summers, and if that bothers them let’s remember that we pay his salary. No one comes out of that deal happy.

Their hockey team exists only in notional opposition to our own. Otherwise, the Sabres have no rationale. In a logical world, they would have moved up here a decade ago so that downtown types could have another reason to complain about the suburbs (the “suburbs” being any place between Windsor and the Ontario/Quebec frontier).

But like the kid who won’t stop pinching you in the recess line, Buffalo keeps trying to start something.

“The hatred in the Sabres-Leafs rivalry reached another level tonight …” the Buffalo News wrote about the ACC brawl.

The hatred in the what now? On the long list of teams Toronto hates on principle (all of them), Buffalo’s buried beneath fifty feet of compacted garbage. We can barely hear them.

But like John Scott (native Edmontonian — another place none of us have ever been), Buffalo really wants to fight. Even in pre-season. Even when no one cares.

That’s got to be it, right? They just want us to care. Sorry, we can’t help. All our caring is wrapped up in a couple of hundred metres of asphalt at the Island Airport, so you can see we’re tapped out.

What we’d like to do is take hold of Buffalo by the shoulders and say, ‘It’s not you. It’s us. And no I can’t go with you to the Fight Prom.’
Then we could go back to trying to catch the attention of the only people whose opinion we really care about – ourselves.

Brunner does sign in Jersey, surprisingly for multiple years. Kind of an odd team. Picked up a variety bag of Jagr, Clowe, Ryder, and Brunner in the offseason. Hard to tell what they're going to get out of that, really. At least they gave Zajac 8 years, though.

lol what a suspension handed down by shanahan. must feel proud about that one. i'm sure kessel is extremely hurt emotionally and financially missing three preseason games. i'm also sure if the roles would've been reversed scott would have been handed a death sentence.

I may not like Rufus but dammit do I respect his gif game.

Forgot that the Perron-Paajarvi trade happened. If the Blues bothered to sign Morrow in the first place, they'll probably end up letting some young talent rot in favor of whatever it is he does these days, huh?

Semi-surprising that Spooner didn't make the NHL club as he tore it up in pre-season, but there's just no room for him at the moment. Will be interesting to see what he does when someone inevitably gets hurt.

I'm not really hot on Dallas outside of Lehtonen. I'm skeptical Seguin flourishes right away, although eventually he should strike up a good partnership with Benn or Nich. Beyond that the scoring depth is pretty weak and the defense is just ok. I can totally see Lehtonen just carrying them to the playoffs anyway, but I'm not very high on them.

Minnesota should take third in our division although unlike the hawks and blues they're not above ******* it up, and everybody else is too close to know now, at least until we see which teams are decimated by injuries and who slips by the bug.

Also not expecting the central to get either wildcard spot.

Minnesota should take third in our division although unlike the hawks and blues they're not above ******* it up, and everybody else is too close to know now, at least until we see which teams are decimated by injuries and who slips by the bug.

Also not expecting the central to get either wildcard spot.
Meh, what's keeping Seguin from playing well? Plus he's got the magic #91 now, which makes you way cooler. The defense could blow, yeah, but between the older guys who could prove to be of little worth (Cole, Horcoff, refuse to believe the Wizard will degrade) and young guys who will have too much expected of them (Nichushkin, Chiasson, Eakin), I think these guys have just what it takes.

I don't want to be down on Minnesota because Coyle is going to go America all over everyone's asses this year, but I'm going with the gut on Dallas.

That makes me a feel a little better about our captain likely ending up as Ehrhoff. Maybe. Not really.

Who knows, confidence is huge in sports and having Lehtonen go insane on the NHL could give that whole team the confidence to put it together, but I just don't like the scoring depth or defense and think Seguin will need a little bit to gel, and with little help I just see the pressure of being Dallas' savior weighing on him.
