I too conked out for the third period. Woke up at 3, checked the score, saw that we won, back to sleep.

Some interesting comments from Maurice on Trouba about training him to be playing against the top players but that last night saw that he wasn't having a great game, so bumped him to a different pairing. He hasn't been in his finest form this season, but hopefully he gets things going soon. Nice to see the second line strike again for a goal. I feel like Laine and Ehlers have better chemistry with Scheifele than Little, but how do you break up the Wheeler-Scheifele-Connor line? They are so good.

Creatine gives you nasty, nasty bowel movements in my experience.

Just sayin'....

i didn't see any of the 3rd period - had to sleep, but it looks like the Jets played most of it with a one goal lead - not easy to do on the road vs the Kings...

Well done - keep it rolling and racking up the points!!  2 points in November count the same as 2 in Spring!!

I could see Barker holding out for a GM job.  He'd be a good fit in Montreal when Kavis Reed is fired after next season. 

Was just thinking this. Maybe he will then hire Milanovich down the line and Montreal and Toronto will have effectively swapped regimes!

Before Lapo took over the OC job I remember some people saying he doesn?t use FB?s very much.

I think in general, I would like to see Lapo tweak his offense and try spreading the ball around a bit more and use everyone on the field. I think he relies to heavily on 2 or 3 players and when you look at good offenses, they use everybody on the field. I think by doing that, you make the defenses play a lot more honest and not key on certain players.

Didn't catch the late game but watched the highlights this morning. Great bounce back after the Nashville mess!

Honestly, I want Walters to add Barker to his team.

Ding ding ding!  Masoli is a perfect Bomber fit.  Not sure why he doesn't get more mentions here.  Masoli is true "blue collar" underdog, work-your-way-up, no-one-believes-in-you, chip-on-your-shoulder QB much like... Matt Nichols!  I'd love to see Masoli backup Nichols.  And his skillset is a perfectly complement, being a completely different QB from Matt.

Masoli's first 3 starts or so he looked like a running D.Davis.  His next 3 starts I really noticed some potential.  Every time Collaros got hurt Masoli would come in and be better than last time.  Then it was clear Masoli was way better than Collaros, to everyone but Austin.

TiCats would be really stupid to let Masoli go.  In fact, I think TiCats would be really stupid to not put Masoli as their #1 '18 starter.  If we were still floundering for a #1 QB with a Willy or similar, I'd take Masoli as our #1 in a second.  But I wouldn't take him over Nichols.  Not sure Masoli wants to be a #2 anywhere though now that he looks better out there than Collaros, Durant and Jennings.

That said, I still don't think we need an expensive #2 QB.  Play the throw-the-dice game and if we have Nichols IR downtime, do a trade mid-season for someone quality that isn't looking great at the moment.  Every year there's some #1-material QB sitting on the bench.  This year is was Collaros.  Many previous years it was Glenn.  If we really needed to, we could have grabbed Collaros.  Why waste the SMS when you don't need to, and might never need to?  As everyone else says, spend it on a MLB and maybe another DB!  In this league backup QBs are like life insurance you don't have to buy until you die... just pay the money when you actually need them.

i think he doesn't get more mentions cause like you said I don't think Hamilton is going to let him go...the whole Manzeil thing is a curiosity and potential distraction to the Ti-Cats QB situation...

so glad we have our number 1 sorted out!!

He just became a Canadian citizen this week...he is a good "football mind" not sure what his plans are going forward.  He has made some gaffs but so has everyone else.

I've often wondered about this developing players thing. How much of this actually goes on in the league? Given the limited amount of time they practice through the week, it seems that only true time would be in training camp. However, that seems more like an evaluation opportunity more so than coaching up a player. Other than that, is it just throw reps in practice with the team or is there a 'process' that a team does? With the NFL they have the money and the time to have the #2 be a scout squad for the #1 defense, so they get a lot more 'real' reps, so to speak... just curious...

For INT players there is not much development time. It's about being a good player and being patient on the PR for 500 bucks a week. However, NAT players are given a lot development time and energy because they are tough to find. Diamonds in the rough may spend a couple years on the PR.
QBs are definitely developed. Rarely are they CFL ready, it is a completely different game than they are used too. However, by the time a QB is ready a lot of times they are off to another team that can offer them a chance to start. It's the nature of the business. This is a QB driven league so even though chances are you may be developing a QB for someone else, you still have to hope you find the next Ricky Ray that finds his game fast and pushes your current starter to the bench.
