SINCERE THANKS, TORONTO

Lowetide
June 10 2013 04:48PM

Toronto takes a beating from the rest of Canada, and let's be honest they're full measure for it. However, there are wonderful things from and about Toronto. On this historic day--when Toronto sends us their best coach (thanks!)--it's time to pay homage to the city money that built.

NUMBER TEN--KEN DRYDEN

Not just for his warm and short speeches while with the Leafs organization--those should be sold on every street corner (I'd say 200 CD's should hold them) but also for the absolutely perfect description of Toronto the city.

 

NUMBER NINE--ROGER NEILSON

Despite having possibly the worst NHL owner in history at the time (I'd like to say it's a small group in contention but there's miles of candidates) the 70s Leafs hired a wonderful man and a brilliant coach--Roger Neilson. AND the fanbase was instrumental in having Neilson reinserted into the coaching lineup after the owner went off his nut. I choose to believe 'Toronto the good' comes from this event.

NUMBER EIGHT--TORONTO ZOO

If you're going to do a zoo-do a zoo! There are few in Canada that are top drawer, Toronto is one.

NUMBER SEVEN--TORONTO CITY HALL

Unique, visually attractive and famous. Just like their mayor!

NUMBER SIX--DAVE KEON

The perfect hockey player, beloved and revered. Hockey's DiMaggio, he remains perfect in black and white.

NUMBER FIVE--TORONTO!

The skyline. In a country with exactly two worthy of awe, Toronto's is lovely.

NUMBER FOUR--SAM THE RECORD MAN

Long forgotten, but well remembered.

NUMBER THREE--TRUDY YOUNG

A generation of young Canadian men would have given a lot of money to be Kermit the Frog at least one time.

NUMBER TWO--THE LEAFS

All across the nation, the Leafs hold sway, even in--especially in small towns on the prairies and taverns in Hogtown. The Leafs give Canada a lightning rod conversation for any occasion. You can argue about the Leafs at a wedding and a funeral. No one is meh about the Maple Leafs.

NUMBER ONE--NEIL YOUNG

Brilliant and talented for 40 years and running. A national treasure.

 

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Toronto won their last Stanley before most of you were born. Before the internet, before computers were smaller than a building, before crack, before CD's, before PVR, before the Edmonton Oilers.

There is no copy of the Stanley winning game available in color, and so Leafs fans have had to endure 'since black and white' jokes for decades. One day, Stanley will once again return to Toronto. It is my sincere hope that they moved that day back by a decade with today's decision to allow Dallas Eakins to escape to another hockey city and an enormous opportunity.

In our town. Edmonton, Alberta.

I can't believe you have a picture of Iringa the Elephant in a 'Thank you Toronto' article.

Iringa wasn't born in Toronto, She was born in Zambia. Unless this article is 'Thank you South Luonga', you are way off base here.

Really? I remember a fair bit of apprehension about Ralph's hire from the media and the public in general. If I recall the lack of NHL experience was a factor, but not as much as the fact his head coaching experience with the Swiss team produced a very boring "lock down" style that many thought would stifle the Oilers offence.

I am sure the personnel was as much to blame as anything but Ralph lost me the exact second he started an OT with Horcoff and Smyth and - after the inevitable loss - justifying the action by saying the Oilers are a shoot out team.

It was "peace out" for me after that. Nice guy, great speaker, timid coach.

Say what you will, MACT is going to be a man of his word and go down fighting to get this club back to the top. He is not finished,and proved he has balls. I would be very nervous if i were a few players,more than a few and a few coaches. Please Dallas, if you have control bring in Maurice if he is interested and get rid of Bucky. Smith i would retain as he ran a good penalty kill, at least for now. And what about Todd Nelson ? Perhaps and as i heard on team 1260 tpday the mans resume is as good as Eakins. Does he deserve a chance as an assistant ? Send Kelly to OKC to hone his skills perhaps.

Just sayin....

Todd Nelson is a good coach.

Vancouver is a team on a slow decline. A man as astute as Ralph would steer clear of junkie central.

In regards to comment #32 from the self-appointed genius, DSF-please explain to all of us why Eakins would get an interview from Vancouver when they are a declining club looking for a veteran coach?

I'm so GD sick and tired of you thinking you know so much more than everyone else. If it is your perception that the Oil are no good, and are not going to show any signs of improvement, and all decisions they make are inferior to your liking, then why do you bother to troll on this site?

But the BEST part about that difference, is that the new G.M. sees that in his new Bench Boss & realizes that it's a new NHL & new player NHL now, & that kind of 1 on 1 commitment (especially) with young players, is what is required in this league, this Hockey Club & for the entire organization moving forward.

The chick in the miniskirt in the truly horrible Canadian "sitcom" called "The Trouble with Tracy" was waaaay hotter than Trudy Young, IMO. Of course I was like 10 when that show was in reruns.

There have been a few coaches who made a successful jump from the AHL to the NHL but there are also a very large number of casualties.

Remember when Guy Boucher was the great while hope and was being pursued by many teams?

Oops.

Not sure if I am crazy about a rookie either but Ralph didn't do it for me. I heard him speak a couple of times and he is a very good communicator, but he did not seem to hold players accountable, at least from outside appearances.

Boucher seemed to have a meteoric rise and a goofy system that worked in the junior ranks. Time will tell with Eakins. His path was a little different than Bouchers.

Oilers have tried old school guys (Pat "Hind Banana" Quinn). A Veteran teacher (Renney) and a Euro-trained, newbie communicator in Krueger. I think coaching is over rated sometimes. Some pretty crappy coaches have won the cup and some bright coaches have not.

Honestly, I think good assistants and good players make for good head coaches, which is why I think a solid "associate" and a hard look at Smith and Bucky are as important action items as hiring Eakins.

If MacTavish increases the talent and level of compete on the roster Eakins should have success.

You may be correct but the foreseeable future is no more than a season or two. The whole point is that the potential exists for the oil to win championships. It may or may not come to pass but it is a CERTAINTY that the canucks will not win Stanley with the veteran group they now have.

one of my personal favorites that goes with the "things change considerably in 2-3 years" theme is the 10 year 60 home playoff date guarantee he tossed out for the conference championship contending Minnesota Wild.. you know, the Wild team that stumbled to 8th place and got obliterated in the 1st round..

I enjoyed Eakins' presser immensely, but talk is cheap for the 4th coach in 5 years. I especially admired how he handled the media, and put them on guard slightly by stating that he reads everything written about his teams. Usually for a new coach in a hockey-crazy market, it's the other way around.

Oops - meant to post this in the Eakins article and got my tabs mixed up. Oh well.

You are on crack if you think Vancouver hires Kreuger unless of course they need someone to write motivational speeches for Mike Gillis to use at his press conferences...Get a grip. Kreuger was out of his class and just another screwed up decision by Tambo man.

I doubt it was just a Tambo decision . Eakins was a joint decision by the same group that lauded Kreuger . Kreuger not out of his class . Not satisfied they are both gone - you want their blood and bad mouth them to boot ?

Hopefully Eakins brings Rob Ford with him. Honestly, I would vote for that tweaked-up a$$ clown before I voted for Kerry "What Conflict of Interest??" Diotte. At least Ford can blame the rock for his idiocy (allegedly).
