I always back shitty US clubs to prove how a Canadian team can never be successful again...... If the Leafs were in Arizona they'd be cup contenders....

The funniest thing about toronto is the negative impact the fans have on their team

You give them too much credit.

I used to be super into hockey but I've completely lost interest since they've all but eliminated fighting in the NHL game. It used to be something to look forward to, a game within a game, and I really loved the instant justice that was dispensed when someone broke one of the unwritten rules. Hockey in the 90's and early 2000's (and before that as well, but that's my era) was probably the most wonderful team sport I've ever witnessed... just this super fast marriage of athleticism, skill, finesse, toughness, and violence.

I know it's better and safer for the players now, and I know that being an enforcer was a really difficult way to make a living, but I miss it for selfish reasons. I did some work for Lyle Odelein a few years ago and he was just the coolest dude, after I figured out where I was (his wife booked the job and I had no idea I was in his house at first) and told him I was a fan he ordered a pizza and we sat in his kitchen watching his fights on youtube while he told me war stories and it was fucking amazing. I just feel like there aren't a lot of guys like that around anymore.

I kinda miss fights but at the same time the game is so fast and guys are so skilled it's fucked....

Every night I see something that would make a yearly top ten in another decade....

I do miss the fights and big hits of the olden days, but at the same time the skill level makes it just as good to watch. Everyone is so fast these days, and it makes for exciting action. It's also nice to see people not having career ending hits ending careers like Lindros and Kariya.

We have Elias Petterson here and I keep looking at his McCauley Culkin Christmas Elf face and think... There's just no way this guy is even in the NHL and he does the most shockingly filthiest shit I've ever seen.....

I like his flow.

Had him on my fantasy team last year. He's scary good, and helped me pocket a few bucks.

Iím so stoked hockey is back and seems to be going smooth but I just canít wrap my head around the series. Like I canít figure out which games and stuff are do-or-die. Like, I think all are but like the season pace feels so odd to me. Like I have no sense of how the league overall is playing out. Just how the Hawks and that conference are doing.

Still happy to watch though!

also glad itís back and running smooth enough.

Iím in the same boat. I follow the North and look at overall standings every once in a while. It takes a little more effort than normal. If you told me Florida was top 5 in the league I wouldnít have believed you.

But I guess some teams have played considerably less games so that kinda matters at this point.

My biggest concern is itís tough to know how good teams actually are. My Leafs are beating up on everyone and while they do look better overall than last year, itís hard to know how they stack up against the top dogs in other divisions.

Canucks.... :-*

I'm psyched to have something to watch and follow but it's not gonna get serious until the playoffs.  They're having to play so many games and against the same teams....no surprise that most games one team doesn't show up.....it's usually my team....

Wayne Simmonds=heel flip....

Wayne Simmons looks like an illusion flip guy to me.

I wish they put teams records or place in the division next to the name during broadcast like NFL. Iím probably minority but knowing a teams in the basement wonít stop me watching an out of market game. This all Canadian division has been chefs kiss especially the covid HNIC broadcast.
