Chicago tomorrow and Leafs on the 2nd half of a back to back... pretty solid chances of another no show.

@MaxwellHowe @phaneufoundlander Usually teams that are up by that much let off the gas. A score that big with the shot differential that big means there is something seriously wrong.

@hometeem @peterbleafs @Dogger JVR is the one that is not able to cycle with speed, which is how he has to cycle on L1. As soon as he was put on with Kadri and Santorelli, they slowed the game down and he cycled with them fine. JVR regularly kills the cycle on L1.

@B_Leaf

He played well for Toronto because he came in red hot from the AHL that year.

Look at the Marlies that came in during the regular season and playoffs that had an impact on the team and/or big years. Also look around the league. 

He can't play in the NHL. He has no puck skills+he can't skate

@Cameron19 @Mcost61 have you just started watching the team? Its still a house of cards. Teams that allow 40sog regularly arent successful. Thats a fact

“Look at Detroit against the Leafs last Thursday: They didn’t get rewarded,” said Boudreau. “But by the same token, the Leafs have earned so much that they’ve got now, and that’s probably because of hard work three weeks before. They got s---kicked by Nashville and then (said), wow, we gotta go.”

Leafs fans can be forgiven for looking at this run however they prefer. They can regard it with suspicion, like lab rats who have been shocked reaching for the cheese one too many times, and who will just wait to have it proven that this brie won’t flash-fry their nerves this time. They can enjoy the good times in isolation, and not worry that Toronto plays 17 of the next 22 on the road.

Or they can blue-sky hope. Some fans still do.

“I know this town. I’m here all summer, and I know,” said Boudreau. “It goes through peaks and valleys. But one of these days they’re going to go through that peak and they’re not going to come back down. And they learn from that, and that’s tough, but they’re better this year than they were last year.”

Fans worry, though, Bruce. They’ve seen some things. You know how it is.

“Well, of course. There’s a lot of negativity in this town. Nobody believed the Blue Jays were going to stay on top in May, either. They were all, when’s that shoe going to drop.”

Well, about that . . .

“I know, but eventually it won’t! You gotta have faith.”

It’s the Leafs. Why do you have to have faith?

“It’s gonna happen,” Boudreau said. “S---, the Cubs are gonna win some day, too.”

He walked away, smiling. Good times in Toronto, for now.

“I’ve seen a different mindset,” said Boudreau before a 6-2 loss to the streaking Leafs. “I mean, they look more confident every game they play. Every game you watch, a lot of times it’s a 2-1 or a 1-0 game, and the Leafs just seem to be able — if they need a goal, they go find it. I mean, unfortunately for me, I watch every one of their games, because I’m a Toronto boy. I’m a Leafs fan, unless I’m playin’ em. I’d love them to win the East — I’m sure all my friends and my mum would, too.”

@.Kong. @DeclanK @hometeem They'll slide in like the rest of them, but they're easy to understand. Zone starts show who is getting starts in the ozone. Even strength Corsi is just who's directing more shots at the net and usually who's controlling the play.

Lock a fucking game down. Hate to get down on a big win, but it's hard to watch. Creeping up to 40SOG again and it's not necessary

I can't stand how this team closes out games. Makes me crazy.

It's the same reason we got our ass kicked by Boston in Game 7. Coasting to pucks, passively boxing out and basically shitting their collective pants.

Kyle Palmieri was one of the reasons Holland was traded out of Anaheim. Deemed expendable.
