Not sure that works against any other team
very hard to get excited watching this game..
Perhaps I can offer a translation...Could mean that we are not sure if Dion is that good...Sometimes he is big in a shut down role...other times he is beyond ugly bad. Without him there we learn not only what else we have but how much we miss him.

I am not quite that good looking but I feel the same emotional dispondency
Why was that a penalty
I wonder what this game might be like if the Sabres were rested at home and the Leafs had just returned from a 2-1 west coast win over SJ. I suspect it might be a little different.
That was a good PP
Have a seat Drew
Yeah but he has a cool mask
Stupid pass from Kessel

@docmma @T K O
In that case I would rather the penalty because we were already killing a penalty...I would hate to miss on the shot and go back to PK
@Alec Brownscombe @LyGuy
I'm freakin out
it was 4 on 3...Gardiner doesnt count
I dont know what is up with Bozie...he is way off
or wrist...pay back
Personally I think Franson is a keeper...I am prolly alone on that island...but heh
Franson just a tower of power there
Made Dion look like a star
Did everyone see that back pressure by Komarov...could we see everyone do that please
So if the Leafs win an "allstar" type game against the Sabres, let's not lose sight of the horrific game against the bruins. The Leafs have made this game almost impossible to enjoy...if we win it just ruins our drafting position and creates false hope...if we lose, well we lose. This team has an uncanny way of making its loyal fans suffer.

The Sabres will crush the Leafs.

The Leafs have some assets worth keeping and they have some tradible assets.
Personally i would keep JVR, Kadri, Rielly, Bernier and most of our prospects. I am not saying I would trade everybody else, but at the right price I would have to look at it. I think we may have the makings of a decent D, but that will take time.
If we can land two or three picks in this draft including at least two top ten picks we could accelerate the rebuild, but it will still take a few years.
For those against such an idea...We are no further ahead right now.

LOL, It is just such a downer discussing this Leaf team right now.

This team plays their heart out...they take contact, give contact, and they are young and improving. If you have not yet got into the Raps you might want to. Good team.

@Anthony Petrielli @dlb Mad
Melky was all business...I would love to see him back. He had some intangibles that helped this team.
@Mcost61 @Anthony Petrielli
@Anthony Petrielli @B_Leaf @peterbleafs @Pent_House
This is another reason why it might be beneficial to trade for top draft picks.
@Anthony Petrielli @peterbleafs @Pent_House
There wont be any significant trades until the management is sorted out. I feel like deals are necessary because I think this team is built wrong. Also i don't think you find the components needed unless you draft them and develop properly so I would like to see us deal to acquire top picks from the coming draft. I could say good bye to Kessel or Gardiner in the right deal.
Does he wear that in dumb and dumber to?
@dlb Mad @B_Leaf
It looks to me like the line is trying to play "allstar game" hockey every night.

No doubt...he is a very good player. But his slump has a lot to do with us not doing well. It is the same with Bozak as far as I am concerned. While Bozak doesn't have the offensive pedigree, he certainly grew his game in 200' of ice. But where is that right now?
My feeling is the Leafs are not built properly...no revelation there, however what has surprised me a little, is how poorly JvR, and Bozak have played going back to the ladder part of last year. In JvR's case he went from being NHL first line left winger...to where he is now...disengaged. Defensively his game has fallen off except when on PK. In Bozak's case he has gone from being Carlyle's everything player to being a guy who tries to rack up points. Bozak's play in his own zone has gone from being very good to very poor. He also has dropped off in PKing, and in the face off dot.
It just seems to me that overall the back pressure, and puck retrieval by JvR and Bozak to go along with a weak defensive Kessel has taken this line from being one of the NHL's best to being a non factor.
Is this what you guys see as well?
Good strong 2-way centers can help any defence corps to look good.

@Mind Bomb @B_Leaf @MaxwellHowe
Yeah, that is probably true.
4 days, 7 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Picking up where they left off
What do you guys think Gardiner gets on the open market right now?
Their first round pick wouldn't be high enough. Need to get into the top ten at least...preferably top seven.
4 days, 8 hours ago on Monday Mashup: Picking up where they left off
I don't know, he might. Nashville wanted him when Burke got him.
Kessel to Nashville for their 1st and 2nd pick 2015
At some point last year Bozak's play really fell off, and this year it hasn't recovered.
@phaneufoundlander @B_Leaf @ingy56
I dont think they are that good
@T_Ry @cryptotho @ingy56 @B_Leaf
Or just north of Shanny
1) Weak at center
2) The defensive play of our forwards is so poor it is hard to believe.
3) Our leadership is about the same as our defensive play
I cant tell what our defense is, because our forwards are so bad.
If the end of last year is an indication, maybe we really are in the McDavid, Eichel sweepsstakes.
Why would the Leafs allow Nonis to make any deals right now...surely he is on his way out.
