so take that Shut-In man crush basement dwelling dipstick dufus. you promised to leave the site- now go- you are banished for being a dufus, just like your crush.(just write him a poem or something. you never know- he might be like you- looking. then you could emerge from your mums basement at the top of your vocation: being a dumb-ass.
I'll bet that you're a "shut-in" anti-social type who lives in his mothers basement and the walls are covered with posters of jake the fake, and mike the spike babcock. you see to base your entire man crush on one thing- that Babs plays him a lot but neglect that he does not play him on the penalty kill. he's the only guy not working hard. AND- top 100 in the world? my daughter can play better defense that this dufus. he can't even skate!
The acknowledged best hockey coach in the world plays Jake on average 22:51 / game – 22:51 is more than Jake averaged last year (21:32) and more than any other Leaf skater this year. Chew on that fact, denizens of your parents’ basement, apparently Mike likes Jake even more this year than last year and more than any other Leaf D, and after digesting that mouthful start thinking about getting a life. What you are doing, irrationally, incoherently, hyper-criticizing someone who is in the top 100 of his profession, is unhealthy and kinda repugnant. I am guessing that most of you do not talk to girls but for the few who do, have you told any of your dates (I am guessing it is one and done) this what you do for kicks – probably not a good idea – like not mentioning living in your parents’ basement.
James Tanner is an absolute dunder-head. he uses a chart that does not have a single stat about jake to justify saying that jake is the best defenceman on the planet. most liberals will buy this but it's retarded. some liberals will buy it because it's retarded. Welcome to jake's world- no wonder he's oblivious to his own severe limitations- because of writers like james tanner.
Hopefully with this 5 day break he is on a plane going somewhere, the plane goes down and he ends up stranded on some remote deserted island in the middle of nowhere. Just like he leaves his d partner every game " stranded" and his playing style " middle of nowhere". Wilson!!!
a recent patron to the Air Canada Center said: I paid $500 for two tickets to watch the Ice Capades, starring Jake Gardiner in the starring role in Flight of The Bumblebee, directed by Mike Babcock, with a supporting cast of frustrated hockey players. casting by Lou. Their next show is Swan Lake with the same cast of characters.
And phaneufnwas likely telling Gardiner to pick a small player to push around (he has marner) and to ignore play while you stay busy cross checking someone ten feet away from the net. Physical hockey payment style. Oh and let's not forget pinching in from blue line thinking you can cover 20 feet faster than your opponent can cover 5 feet to get to the puck and get it past you. Then you have to get that phoney concerned look on your face and put on a big show effort to try to get back.or go to the players box leaving your partner stranded with a 3 on 1 while you sit on the bench. Clown.
It is blatantly obvious that the stats people don't watch the game or don't know the game. Absolutely rediculous to say that he is NHL quality. Maybe the stats people still believe in the elementary school philosophy of eevdrybody gets to play and no one gets blamed. Add to that the peewee hockey no contact concept and you have Jakes playing style. Their is nothing wrong with being a physical defenseman. In fact Toronto needs someone who makes opponents nervous and Jakes habit of rolling out the red carpet doesn't do it. And no... He can't play forward either. Cdipes, look at the physical beatings that forwards take in the corners and in front of the net. Marker takes more hits in one game than Gardiner does in a season. Jakes safety zone from physical contact would have him out by the top of the face off circle looking to deflect. Not to mention his puck control is so bad he wouldn't have a clue as to what's happening in front of him. He would be too busy avoiding contact and making sure there's no way he gets hit by a point shot. Not to mention he blasts rediculojs shots at the crowd in front of the net absolutely clueless to the fact there are leaf players there as well. Watch him take out Mathews or marner or nylander one day (phaneuf style)
Part of clown show Jake's problem is he's NOT a defense man and obviously never will be. He played forward right up until the end of his college years and only switched to defense because he wasn't talented enough to get drafted as a forward. This has been one long painful con and swindle by Gardenia on the Leafs and Leaf fans. The idiots who regurgitate what they've heard somewhere, likely from Gardenia's head cheerleader, James Tanner, about his alleged 'flashes of brilliance' are referring to the times when he completely shirks his defensive responsibilities so he can pretend to be a forward, but brilliant it ain't. They only believe it's brilliant because real D men don't pull this shit, that and these moron stats guys now think a D mans prime role is to get points and generate offense, they can't see value in anything else. If a D man isn't generating points and puck possession they ridiculously assert he can't be very good. This is what leads these ding dongs to laughably allege that clown show Jake is an elite D man! Cause he got a pocketful of points last year picking up Mathews and Nylanders crumbs and all that PP time. Their BS definition of an effective D man is a result of only using their stats goggles for clown show Jake.
Jakey isn't so much a Paul Coffey as a Paul Cough-up, anytime it looks like contact might occur or he has to fight for the puck in a corner he'll slow down and let the opposition player get to the puck first letting himself off the hook. Then he'll follow said player around, at a safe distance of course, maybe stretch way out reaching with a feeble stick check from 4 feet back and allow the other guy to wheel in the Leafs zone looking for passes that most times lead to goals. Gardenia then mopes like it someone elses fault. Pathetic as usual and the delusional coaching won't say a word so as to not hurt the fragile confidence of their budding Paul Cough-up.
todd gill was absolutely stupid and slow and bone-headed.But I would take him any day over Clueless. Jake is the worst. the opposition really gets into the charge when jake is on the ice because they can easily wear down the team. the leafs look totally disorganized when jake is on the ice and the play is in our end. it's a fire drill shit-show. Unfortunately, he's oblivious to his own stupidity (yes, that's how bad he is).
I thought the retard that thinks jake is at the "top of his vocation" had thrown his bone and #$%ed off. why come back- you promised to leave? We threw the bone right back at you, dumb-ass #2. let's see... what possible vocation could you be talking about? Jake can excel at? golf caddy? parking lot attendant? lab rat? mental hospital patient? paper boy? bicycle delivery lad? doorman? skateboard tune-up tech? (no too technical). bat-boy on a ladies softball team? sand-trap raking technician?
