That is an impressive stat...granted they have been at home a fair bit, nevertheless impressive to have that kind of record against playoff caliber teams.

Would you give Robidas a game or two off to get Holzer in occasionally?

I never pinned the problems on RC, although given the mess it was, he was hard to defend. I put the blame on Nonis, and I still hold him accontable for some things but wow, he or someone sure pulled a rabbit out of the hat with Santorelli, Winnik, and Polak. We knew what Komarov was and never should have been let go back.

I stand corrected...I thought he won in Manitoba. He did have some really strong teams there.


Well Cameron if you think that the problem was mostly systems that is fine...you can believe that. I am equally convinced it is mostly personnel. I do not think for one second we would be anywhere near where we are without the personnel changes. I think we would be talking about McDavid.

Throughout his AHL and NHL career RC has been a very good coach winning championships at both levels.  I don't think he is a bad coach. I said this before and I will say it again...The Leafs couldn't win a puck to save their life last year.  Now they have some really good puck winners. Looks like a personnel problem, mostly.

He has Datsyuk's ability to take away pucks but no where near the defensive accountability yet...but that is why we have a farm system.

He tested strong at the combine. But they have to give him time in the AHL. At least a year, maybe tow, maybe three. They should build a complete player like Kadri.

We at least got Nylander out of it...we will see where that goes...but another elite set of hands in our system. I just hope we give Nylander lots of time to develop a defensive game. He seems to have an ability at take-aways, so I think it is possible. I also think he is stronger than his baby face looks.

I really wouldn't have thoughtthe Leafs would be this good without Komarov and Polak.  You could argue that at the time of their injuries they were both playing their respective positions as good as anyone on the team.

Rielly has been fantastic...I think the coaching staff deserves some credit for helping him focus on his own end first.

I would like to see his team mates utilize him better on rushes when he jumps up.

I would venture to say that the Leafs have 4 or 5 players with the best hands in the league. 4 or 5 in the top 20. Kadri, Kessel, JvR, Bozak, Lupul

Santorelli's play in the d zone was an absolute treat to watch last night. Any NHL coach could put together a video package on it and show it to his team on how to play in your own end. Great game by him.

3 points last night on about 10 seconds of puck possession... ... ...


If the guy is playing hurt and able to utilize his skill like that you have to tip your hat...but there is another side to that coin to.

I am not sure what the issue is with the first line. All year I have suspected injuries, but who knows. All three guys are very gifted inside the o zone with the puck on their stick...ridiculously gifted at scoring. But they have warts that have to be removed if we have any designs on winning the cup.

Bozak most definitely has it in him to play a very strong 2 way game, and we have seen glimmers of that recently...let's hope he can bring that when the games matter most.

Kessel has shown that he can at least compete stronger than he is right now...but I have always wondered if his overall skill package can translate into a championship. On one hand having him on the PP and having him with his game breaking ability may just be the ingredient needed to win a series. On the other hand his short comings in a knock em down drag em out series could hurt us. I think we will see what he can do...He is the x factor. If he fails in the playoffs, management will have to look at it. He was pretty good against Boston two years ago. 

JVR is the guy who in my opinion can really make this line work, and yet hasn't lately. He is wonderful offensively and on the PP. However his work on the wall defensively and his back pressure have been poor. He can be so good.

I think this line will play better when the games matter more. 

Overall there are things we can do like get our injured back, call up Carrick, and maybe make a trade to address possession even more. Hopefully these things happen and work.

Not that it is a recipe for success...but on most nights if we trade 8 good chances with the other team, we are going to win with our scorers and our goaltending.


But you are right we do need to reduce shots against!!

Generally when you are leading a game the shot differential will favour the losing team if both teams are fairly even.


Bernier was the x factor, but still pleased to see the game we played...room to improve...looking forward to Leo getting back.

What you didn't see was Getzlaf two handing Phaneuf twice to the ice in front of the ref with NO call at the end of the second...so Getzlaf had no grounds when he dove.  Anaheim was complaining all night and I have no idea why. The linesman missed an offside leading to a couple of great chances for the ducks.
