The Leafs Did Play with Truckulence

Well tonight the Leafs played with truckulence, too bad against Luongo. Well that and the referees must have forgot that when you put your hand on the puck in the crease that it is a penalty shot. Also hooking penalties can be called in the final 2 minutes just in case they were wondering. 6 penalties in a row, but when the Canucks are in there zone for the entire third period amazingly they received no penalties. Must be all the foot speed they showed. None of them hooked a soul, or took there hand of the stick once. Amazing!!

Are The Leafs Really That Truckulant?

So 5 games down and 0 wins.

But the Leafs were going to be tough right. I believe the word was truckulent. I am struggling with the definition. Maybe Brian Burke could elaborate....

Maybe truckulent means fighting the other teams toughest players. If so Colton Orr and Jay Rosehill fit the definition, but that's it.

If truckulent means fighting for the puck in all areas of the ice, sacrificing yourself to block shots...etc..etc, which I believe is the definition; Who on the Leafs fits this definition? John Mitchell, Niklas Hagman, Mike Komisarek, Luke Schenn, and maybe Jeff Finger could be put in this category.

Maybe truckulence means being a wimp in the corners never winning a battle or competing and pulling at your mouthguard after every whistle, Ala Matt Stajan, Richard Walin, and Nikolai Kulemin.

Maybe truckulence means taking horrible penalties 200 ft from your goal, Ala Matt Stajan, Jason Blake, and Lee Stempniak.

Could be truckulant means not being able to stop a wrist shot from the blue line let alone the top of the circle, there we would have Vesa Toskala.

Maybe truckulant means turning the puck over at the drop of a hat, Ala Beauchmin, Ian White, and company.

Or could be the very definition that Brian Burke wants his team to be is not the one he made or has.

Maybe I can create a couple of words to describe the 2009 Toronto Maple Leafs

1. Anti-Truckulant
2. Untruckulant
3. F'n Awful
4. Anti-Testostrical, which would describe any of Matt Stajan's attempt at a battle for the puck.

Time to get a "POP"
