Let the games begin!

#5 9 months ago

GO Calgary! ! Crush the Couv every weekend!

#6 9 months ago

Watch out for the little red haired step brother Ottawa.

#7 9 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

Puck the leafs!!!

Minor Midget marner! !! My buddy always laugh when I say that. He's soft and abysmal defensively.

#10 9 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Alright what's going on in the *sigh* MassMutual East Division? Chara is a Cap now?

18 foot wingspan

#11 9 months ago

Leafs in the Scotia division !

#44 9 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

Yes..3 points each last night. Just the 2nd game of the season, and mcjesus nets a hat trick.

Leivo flat line stats?? Did you happen to watch the game ? I fell asleep

#56 9 months ago

Time to move Crosby and his albatross contract and re build. Same With Malkin. No fans at the arena anyways

#58 9 months ago

More. Reason to start the fire long before trade deadline. So Crosby and malkin will continue to suck the cash and when retire will leave a trail of tumbleweeds in Pittsburgh?

#60 9 months ago

Your a Pitt fan how would you feel ?

#61 9 months ago

I'm looking forward to Mesz response. I would be calling in sports talk radio daily to make this happen.

#64 9 months ago

Total rebuild , hate to be so macabre but perfect timing now ...Crosby the Kracken? Start with a franchise with one of the greatest players of all time. I know it's outer space talk but how much would you gain as a franchise by moving all that money
I'm thinking as a heartless business man. 1 injury away from major devalue at his age
Just sayin

#65 9 months ago

Ottawa vs Leafs tonite!
God forbid the leafs lose 2 in a row to Randy
(Freckly little guy)

#66 9 months ago

Quoted from hwyhed:

Letang sucks..I’m looking forward to tonight’s tilt w the flames..hope that we light up ex goalie Marky up. Here’s my local weather girl Kasia..I only watch the news for the weather n traffic girls[quoted image]

Damn...Couv looking good for weather girl
Weather girls are accepted in this thread.

#80 9 months ago

Leafs waive Jason Spezza.

#90 9 months ago

Oilers take the lead on a cheapie goal

#97 9 months ago

Leafs are playing like little piles of unorganized poop. Why is Sheldon Keefe still the coach of this team?
Sheldon Keefe should be fired. I would fire him after the weekend.

#98 9 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

Sheldon Keefe should be fired.

I would fire him tonite if I was gm. Don’t waste any more time with this dud.

#112 8 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

Columbus won that trade.

will Winnipeg even lock in Dubois this summer for contract extension? I like the trade for both teams actually ...shieffle and Dubois You kidding me?

#116 8 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

Mike Babcock on NBC trying to salvage his reputation. Lol
Bye Mike!!

Another Mad Mike!

#124 8 months ago

Really .. wonder why?

#125 8 months ago

Sheldon Keefe coach of the year ?

#135 8 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

What is Babcock's blemish?

Weird tactics ..Chelios says he was ..I look at it as being ..I am an egomaniac.
We all need someone to hit our reset button once and a while. "A man in a room alone is the smartest man in the room" -bacon

#148 8 months ago

As everyone is aware I am a die hard leaf fan.
Calgary is my second favorite team. The leafs are a powerhouse.

#149 8 months ago

In a strange twist, if the Leafs do win the Cup, it may be because of me.

#155 8 months ago

A young Bacon showing off his literary skills.

20210131_143028 (resized).jpg
#156 8 months ago

I repeat I am not a Habs fan. Young bacon was confused. Typical behavior at his age.

#158 8 months ago

Master bacon was obviously beyond his years.

#160 8 months ago

LOL! The Billy Simith is a lazy writing error obviously

#161 8 months ago

Lol here is my now closed ebay account I had for years as a hobby! My last fridge magnet.

#173 8 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

It was against the struggling Canucks. I really don’t know why I race home to watch them..this team is hard to watch lately , shitty in every aspect, except Quinn Hughes. He’s up there in points for a d men, but a minus 7 going into Toronto. Kinda surprised I got no smack from Cndnpinbacon

Won’t kick you while your down .. Canucks looked bad, what’s with all the dumb penalties? That happens when your chasing the puck all the time. Turned it off midway through the 3rd period.

#179 8 months ago

..Best Leafs team in 52 years?
Matthews is sensational
I bash minor Midget marner but no more these kids are special ..Mathews marner combo is deadly . Rip my best friend I lost many years ago..He would be happiest guy in the world

#180 8 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

It’s all good man..the boys have played a lot of game’s already, and look tired w all the penalties they’ve taken. Their special teams..not so special. Lots of inconsistencies, the d looks terrible. But who knows, maybe they can turn it around like the blues did a few years ago..and no, I’m not high..

What a pylon Myers is...man he stunk

#183 8 months ago

Yeah that's true ..67 leafs were a long shot to win the Cup

#184 8 months ago
Quoted from luch:

you mean 54 years

Small window to win now. Mr cap is tapping at our shoulders
How much is Matthew s going to cost ..another Edmonton ?

#188 8 months ago
Quoted from luch:

1978 1993 and 1994 , made it to the semi finals , should been toronto v montreal final in 93 except for the missed call on the Gretzky high stick , damn Kerry Fraser ( I think the hair spray was put on a little to thick that day )

Unbelievable he didn't make that call. What a goof.

#190 8 months ago

Of course Canada’s political news segment is called “power play”

#202 8 months ago

Meegis you are a Leaf fan, well that makes you Brilliant!

#203 8 months ago

Leaf game and power supply fix ..and beer.

20210206_191744 (resized).jpg
#204 8 months ago

Leafs 10 the Couv 0
My prediction

#210 8 months ago

Matthews scores his 10th of the year and 2 goal of game.
Could this be the best team of all time post 1946?

#212 8 months ago

Just getting comfy in my smoking jacket. The proud maple leaf emblem is corinthian leather of course.

#217 8 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

The 5th goal was the dagger. Time to go downstairs, drink some cheap fn beer n play some pin. Yes, my Canucks officially fn suck right now..
[quoted image]

Think I got you beat too on the cheap alcohol content.

Nothing says go to the Loo more than a Cariboo!

#219 8 months ago

I know Mesz will be terrified at our choice of drink!

#221 8 months ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Wow...power packed PBR!

You should see how we get rammed on beer prices . Ridiculous and should go to supreme court.

#222 8 months ago

Strip poker and leafs game now! Surgery a success!

#236 8 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

Any Bruin fans here? I heard a rumour..Jake Virtanen for Jake Debrusk. Van, I’m sure, would have to add to this..

Np bruin fans ever here. Kind of disappointed

#237 8 months ago

position but still not cause enough for cheap
Beer

That's what I thought!

#241 8 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

My liver is going to drown!

I called it!

#242 8 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

My liver is going to drown!

Look for any softys on the roster to be removed.

#248 8 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

My liver is going to drown!

Mesz...Just think of how entertaining this Gm/president combo will be!
Besides Burke is no slouch, neither is Hextal.
Burke loves drafting Made in America players which is a good thing.

#250 8 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:Wicked soft hands!

Agree..So Deceptive and quick.

#251 8 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Should be interesting. I was never a fan of Hextal, as a GM, but I wonder how much of an impact Clarke had on what he could and couldn't do with the Flyers.

That's a good point also Hextal got experience from Clarke at least

1 week later
#315 8 months ago

Wake me up on Saturday night vs Habs.
Not really fun pushing Tonka trucks in the sandbox (with little brother )

#340 7 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

Very uncharacteristic of them so far. Happens though.

Very odd for leafs to go 0 for 6 Mabey, a little less dipsy doodle and maximize shots on net.
I hope Calgary makes the playoffs.

#348 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:hyman busters

Any recent letters regarding your seats Luch?
I have first dibs called it.

#349 7 months ago

You're my sugar daddy now Luch!

#350 7 months ago

The 5th goal was the dagger. Time to go downstairs, drink some cheap fn beer n play some pin. Yes, my Canucks officially fn suck right now..

#353 7 months ago

I wonder what "selling my leaf season tickets" on kijiji ..haven't Checked

#355 7 months ago

Your killin me Luch. I spent all my cash on guitars. I want those tickets

#360 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

interest ? yeah right , there is a waiting list of 250 years roughly only 77 season tickets sets become available every year and there is 20,000 people on the wait list "meaning just 77 season tickets became available for sale to the 10,000 people currently on the wait list. At that rate, and assuming each person wants at least two tickets, it will take more than 250 years to clear the existing list." they ain't paying shit , and it's like pulling teeth to get your money back

Yeah ...big bucks for season tickets here
This may be a window to score season tickets but you will still need deep fn pockets ..The seat license is a JOKE. Add, what 12.00 for a tall boy Luch??

#361 7 months ago
Quoted from finnflash:

Would like to hear more about these guitars you speak of.

Haha!!!
BC rich warlock
Fender jaguar
..saving for another guitar.

#362 7 months ago

...And a porrable recorder /amp

#363 7 months ago

...and weed.

#373 7 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Plastic flask will get you in the door with enough alcohol for the game. something like....... amazon.com link »
Wont set off metal detectors. Even if you get caught and they confiscate it ..... it's 6.99

Thumbs way up on this post I.mo. absolutely correct. Applicable to all sports events

#374 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

#376 7 months ago

#388 7 months ago
Quoted from hwyhed:

That mcdavid & draisatl in Edmonton are pretty good players..

Couv need help

#389 7 months ago

Sorry had a few drinks..should be in "3 word thread"

You know it yourself , what 10 games night at multiple rinks within driving distance ?

#398 7 months ago

Just me or are you guys tired of playing the same teams over and over? No Nathan , Crosby, etc..

#402 7 months ago

R.i.P Walter Gretzky. You deserve the statue outside that arena.

#404 7 months ago

Man I had so many good times at the gardens ..hawking souvenirs , the concerts , so many great memories .

#405 7 months ago

Worked at the CNE for a few summers...remember climbing the bulova clock multiple times and smokin a few scoobies with my best friend , who got me the job , before heading to see a concert or jays game. The CNE now is a shadow of itself but still fun!

#408 7 months ago

The steps to the greys were brutal

#417 7 months ago

Benning press conference was hard to listen to.
I suspect he's gone for sure. 7 years in not much and questionable moves. Also many owners may look at a Kyle Dubas type. Shanahan president of the year. Kyle Dubas GM of the year.

#421 7 months ago

I see no one was clever enough to ram me over my recent Dubas / Bernie Love affair!
Dubas in contention yes, but let's see Leafs play outside of division.cant wait for playoffs boys / girls ...and OK ..pansexuals as well.

#423 7 months ago

The suits say the days of all sports talk is over.
May only be time before my beloved fan590 changes format. Bell media slashes hundreds of jobs in sports division , now I have to listen to Amy talk about her house. If anyone get that.

#424 7 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

I'll give you two weeks before you call for Keefe to be fired again

My concern is yes all is lovey now...but when hard questions are asked why did you not beat Tampa ? He better not stutter. Just saying this is Toronto . It's actually worse in Montreal.

#425 7 months ago

Andersen been shakey. I would ride Campbell for a while ..just sayin...likely will happen because , you never know , Brendan and Dubas may be a pin head

#427 7 months ago

Liquor makes me wild. I'm taking a break from this thread

#428 7 months ago

My man cannons are focused on the hockey news right now.

#430 7 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

I was fortunate enough to see about a dozen or so.
Getting seats behind the net in the first rafters was like being on a 60 minute roller coaster ride. Anytime a player would cross the blueline and wind up to shoot everyone would flinch and protect their face. So many errant tips or deflection would send the puck flying right into the rafters. This was before the protective netting was ever used.

Exactly,right. Remember ballards bunker? What an experience watching the leafs play..I was too busy getting bossed around by my uncle./souviner stand

#431 7 months ago

Oh yeah I forgot I’m banning myself.

#440 7 months ago

Keefe should be fired. Why not ride Campbell??? Wow.

#442 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

yeah Andersen sucks

Let's see if keefs hair gel is all melted at the press conf. Jim Ralph just playing Strauss (reffing) violin on the radio. lol

#445 7 months ago

Oh man was he ticked at the refs! ..I see his point.

#446 7 months ago

Couv Vs Oilers next!

#452 7 months ago

Watched Burke interview from a half decent looking female reporter.
Burke Praised Letang Crosby Malkin
But his answers are pre built for lob questions like that.

#453 7 months ago

I'm spying on Pitts management.

#455 7 months ago

Found on line last night ..Google Burke Pitts press conference

#456 7 months ago

Where was the interview?
I've criticized LeTang but have to say he's played very well in last 12 or so games.

Not according to Burke in interview. MESZ Already at odds with President?

#457 7 months ago

Btw Mesz..why didn't you contact the Pittsburgh transit system to get that bus shelter poster? ...I think of these things.

#459 7 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Slow down bacon ..... I still think LeTang is well over paid. He's certainly not worth over 7 mill a year but in last few weeks he's played a lot better. Honestly, be a good time to trade him as well as Malkin.
Plus need to wait and see what Burke does at trade deadline

Cuz I was given one!

Pics or didn't happen

#460 7 months ago

There will be trades ...he mentioned that fyi

#466 7 months ago

The leaf 2 tone blue is horrid and unforgettable

Big screen wiped

#471 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

Galchenyuk gets a goal tonight !

Why galchenyuk Luch? ...does he really deserve to be part of the blue and white??; what's the 5 teams in 2 year stuff? He better shine

#473 7 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

Burke interview on hockey central yesterday. Nothing salative.

#475 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

he's got something to prove ! he got a taste of the minors , first time in his career , he won't want to go back there

Another point I have for canadian and American talent pool Luch. Buffalo has zero scouts in Canada no wonder they suck. Ummm the Windsor spitfires/London Knights , Owen sound etc.. are in your backyard.

#476 7 months ago

I have been drinking fyi...not supposed to text.

#478 7 months ago

Must ...not...text...While ....drinking

#479 7 months ago

i say buffalo blows up the whole team ! stay tuned for news at 11

Cue the Hue manitee blow up meme!

#480 7 months ago
Quoted from luch:

Galchenyuk gets a goal tonight !

Really hope Leivo does more than Galchenyuk

#483 7 months ago

Thx Hue!
Pinside Playoff pool pre -plan time?
Be 4 years in a row defending champ for the Bacon!,(.I speak in 3rd person now.) aside from the Soviet tinkering with year 1.

#487 7 months ago
Quoted from ImNotNorm:

I'd be down for a Pinside playoff pool again. I'm sure we could get a dozen Pinsiders to join for the heck of it.
Set it up and I'll consult my crystal ball for my picks )

The defending champion says he’s not setting it up. I asked bacon.

Quoted from hwyhed:

Canucks 1st game in almost 3 weeks..20+ players inc. coaches w ‘the covid’ Holtby stands on his head, and has arguably his best game as a nuck. The Couve w an impressive 3-2 ot win over the Leafs! I do hope that Hyman is okay after that bs knee on knee from Edler..

I hear ya on the bs knee, but having played I agreed with Biexa, Sometimes it’s a natural motion

#506 6 months ago

2 nice back to back wins for the Couv. I'm happy for the team and was actually hoping they would win. Right on. Hovart should make Team Canada.

Yup..The printed one sent to my home is not read and goes directly minty in a plastic cover. I read the on line copy which is included in the gold membership. No swag available but I plan on taking care of this with an email to Mr. Roustan.

#516 5 months ago

Colin Campbell , George Parros, Bernie, and the goonest of all Chris Pronger all great choices made by the NHL for player safety

#517 5 months ago

NHL breaking news: Dale Hunter hired to replace George Parros.

#521 5 months ago

Good one Hue

#523 5 months ago

If I were in your skates;
I would get the printed version of the hockey news. It's cheap for a yearly hardcopy /monthly subscription and you get the On - line copy. Be like bacon in the know. That's all I ask from santa every Christmas. That's it....and beer cards.

#524 5 months ago
Quoted from meSz:

What an embarrassment for the NHL. It's time to fire Parros and Bettman.

Every year you put a dark drape over your head about your beloved Pens! Lol
I would Love to see Pens vs Leafs eh Mesz ?

#656 4 months ago
Quoted from SynthHead:

I don’t know about that, he’s defensively sound and strength up the middle is huge especially this time of year. He can also add some depth scoring from someone other than the big 3. I think you’re underplaying him a little but with that said he’s a scumbag. That hit was such BS man and he does something dirty every playoff it seems.
On another note my heart is with JT. The way his body reacted reminded me of Marc Savard. Unfortunately I think he might be in a dark room for a few months.

He should retire the season?(Tavares)

#657
