[Comment From Clueless] What happened to Toskala? 12:56 Will have surgery. Not sure whether it's groin, hip or both. 12:57 Yep, it's hip and groin. 1:02 [Comment From ODUB] 4 month rehab 1:02 [Comment From Byron from Saskatchewan] When did this injury happen to toskola? 1:02 I think he's had it all year. 1:02 [Comment From Shamrock Shake] Hell of a perfomance last night for a guy who needs surgury! 1:02 [Comment From halfpint] Antropov going???? 1:03 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] do you think when or if toskala comes back next season he will be better than ever because he has to prove himself? 1:03
Yes, I do. I don't think he was healthy. 1:03 [Comment From guy] good job on Burke bringing in Gerber for the rest of the season for Toslaka 1:03 [Comment From amir] i think the leafs should keep kubina and kaberle. with a defence core of kubina, kaberle, schenn, van ryan and white i think they are in a good spot. they would just need to replace finger for a better stay at home tough d-man. 1:03 [Comment From Kevin] Hi Mike, I'm from the UK & a big Bracknell Bees & Leafs fan and wondered what you know about Reitz who we picked up from the Rangers ?? 1:04 I can't claim to know much about him. He has size but little mobility. He is a marginal NHLer right now. 1:04 [Comment From Ed] Who will be starting goalie? Gerber or Joseph ? 1:07 [Comment From Antonio] One last ditch at making a pertinent question: is it just me who thinks Kaberle is one of the worst defenders in Leaf uniform? I know he's supposed to be a great puck mover but the fact is, he has more turnovers per game than anyone else, he is soft and he is unreliable defensively... 1:08
Well, that's an opinion. You take the good with the bad, balance it and see if you can live with it. He does an awful lot of good things offensively. 1:08 [Comment From Nishant] Hi Mike, one general question, anyone can answer it for me? 1:08 [Comment From Nishant] what does "A" written on some players jersey mean? 1:08 [Comment From Shamrock Shake] Mike can you confirm that Frogren has been sent to the AHL along with Stapleton? Why Frogren? 1:08 Yes. 1:09 And now, over to a better man. Marc Moro, ladies and gents. 1:09 [Comment From Nick] Hey Marc, saw you play here in New Hampshire against the Monarchs I think a few years back.......it's tough being a Leaf fan in the Boston area, but I like causing a little ruckus occassionally like you did :) 1:10 Ruckus...I had to do something to get notice out there. My skills weren't going to do it. 1:10 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] hi marc Moro 1:10 Hi. 1:11 [Comment From cb] Hi Mike, do you think either joseph or gerber will be included in a deal with either antropov or moore? 1:11 Not unless they are getting a goalie in return. They need a goalie with Toskala on the IR for the rest of the year. 1:12 Marc Moro, ladies and germs. (Applause sound) 1:14 [Comment From guy] 'A' means alternate captain 1:14 [Comment From Nick.] A stands for alternate captain 1:14 [Comment From jerry] just saw a fight with Reitz on the Devils website, I can see what Burke might like in him 1:14 [Comment From Jason] Who deserves to wear the "C" for the Leafs next season? 1:14 Panel. Thoughts? 1:16 [Comment From Guest] Kabrele 1:16 [Comment From L.Bedley] I personally would give it to Blake. 1:16 [Comment From jase] i'd say blake, having a good year and he's a veteran 1:16 [Comment From Antonio] If he wasn't going today, I'd Say Moore. As it is, maybe Kubina... 1:16 [Comment From Nick] White if not Schenn.......but how do you make someone Captain for one year then take it away for a guy who could be our Captain for 10 years? 1:16 [Comment From john new york] dominic moore does 1:16 [Comment From John] If Kubina stays, I wouldn't mind seeing him with the "C". 1:16 [Comment From Halfpint] CUJO !!!!!!! for the "C" LOL 1:17 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] It has taken him awhile to develop as a strong leader on the team but I believe that Jason Blake would be a good candidate for the "C" in the near future 1:17 [Comment From mike wheeler] the c should go to blake or moore 1:17 [Comment From TJ from London ON] Captain....um...newly acquired leaf Rick Nash....(dreaming) 1:17 [Comment From jase] as a long shot, ian white, competes every night, solid season and young 1:17 [Comment From Tony (from Holland)] Niklas Hagman has been doing really good. Would he suit as a captain? Or else Kubina I guess? Or Blake? 1:17 [Comment From Sara] Schenn 1:17 [Comment From Hali] Schenn 1:17 [Comment From Kevin] Marc, do you expect a flurry of deals being made in the next couple of hours? 1:18 Gang. Sorry too tell you, Marc has gone on to bigger things. 1:18 [Comment From sundin admirer] i think it should go to blake 1:18 [Comment From guy] Marc, what do you think the Leafs need to add to their team? 1:19 Not Marc. Mike. Mike. For those of you who saw Zoolander, it's merman dad, merman. 1:19 [Comment From Lex] Mike! What about the Pronger for Antropov rumour? 1:19 Wild rumor. Pronger won't move. Nik, not so much... 1:19 [Comment From leaf fan all the way] has nik or dominic been traded yet? 1:19 Nope. We'd be talking about it. 1:19 [Comment From jase] who would you apoint captain other than schenn mike? 1:20
Jase. Scroll north.
1:20 [Comment From leafan84] blake or schenn maybe mithell 1:20 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] pronger is not leaving the ducks 1:20 [Comment From mike wheeler] Don't you think the leafs need a sniper? 1:20 Uh, yup-. Have you ever seen a team that didn't. 1:20 [Comment From hamid] March 09 leafs at scotiabank 1:20 [Comment From Cam Britton] haha! "I think I have the black lung pop" 1:21 Oh, my God. So funny. 1:21 [Comment From Amanda] LOL Mike. Merman. 1:28
Ok, here's a thought.
You are Brian Burke. You have a starting goalie who needs surgery.
You also have an oppourtunity. You have 18 games ot play and stand 22nd in the league. Now you have a chance to drop like a stone. All you need to do is bring up Pogge and pair him with Curtis Joseph. That should be good for 15 losses.
Instead, Burke goes out and gets a new goalie. There is a real integrity there. I'm not at all sure about the wisdom, but I admire integrity. 1:28 [Comment From sundin admirer] is there a date set on tosky's return? 1:29 He is expected back for camp. It's a four month rehab. 1:29 [Comment From TJ from London ON] im surprised they havent tried to pick roberts up off waivers 1:29 Why would you want him. 1:30 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] ditto 1:30 [Comment From Sara] I think Burke does have integrity... That's why he's right for the job. 1:30 [Comment From L.Bedley] Where did you go Marc? 1:30 It's Mike Ulmer here. Do you have a question for Marc. 1:31 [Comment From TB] Gerber might help them drop like a stone 1:31 Well, I'm betting he is better than what they have. I always stand to be corrected. 1:32 [Comment From Sara] Mike! Why has my Dominic Moore question continued to be ignored :( 1:32 Sara. Sorry, give me the question again. 1:32 [Comment From Leafsfan4Life] remember he played with players like crosby and malkin he would be able to adapt to the environment with the young lineups with the leafsd 1:32 [Comment From TJ from London ON] It just always seems like players return to TO to retire, didn't say I wanted him just that I was surprised. 1:32 [Comment From Kevin] to your thought on dropping like a stone....no brainer for me - get a top 5 pick and grab one of either Duchesne, Kane, or Schenn 1:33 [Comment From John] "Bigger and Better Things"? Probably eating lunch :-) 1:33 Exactly.
