Former NHL referee Tim Peel took to X, formerly known as Twitter, after the Toronto Maple Leafs' 6-5 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

Tim Peel's social media rant late at night for all to interact with



Tim Peel loves to get social media attention, especially on his X account. He will post a lot of intractable material for attention and interaction. Peel also has a podcast in hopes of interacting with an audience as well.

On Friday night, around 9 pm Eastern, Peel delivered another banger of a tweet.


#LeafsForever has no D and with out Joseph Woll they are screwed. Samsonov sucks!!


According to Peel's tweets, he thinks Samsonov is an awful goalie who should go back to Russia


Peel also does not think Toronto has any defensemen as well. Many in the online community have always been critical of Toronto's defense, usually undeservedly so.

More people were also unhappy with Samsonov's performance, including the coach



Sheldon Keefe was another person unhappy with Samsonov's performance on Friday night.

"Mistakes get magnified when you don't get saves."


The Athletic has also come on board saying that the Leafs should move on as well with writer Jonas Siegel suggesting they cannot play Samsonov any longer.


It is safe to say there is a lot of frustration in Leaf-land with how the team is playing, even as they spot a 17-9-7 record.
