@rustynail Frankly, I was amazed Kadri saw the ice again after giving it away to Malkin.

@Cameron19 The actual rule stipulates that the linesman decides AT THE HASH MARKS who would have won the race.

@Cameron19 I don't think that's 100% accurate.

@Shafty But Sid would have won the race, because he took a better angle than Dion and Franson. I'm not sure what the wording of the rule is.

@Hmmm Would that slow the game down too much?

@Hmmm Not sure. I hate when the guy 10' away lets something go, but then the guy at centre calls it. Plus it takes away a ref's ability to manage a game.

@philthethrill They had a very bad game. The interferences, the reversed icing call and the soft penalties.

Great effort by the Leafs. Undone by terrible goaltending and very suspect reffing.

Couldn't believe that, but here are the games:


7-1 vs TB, 3-0 vs Edm, 6-2 vs Cal, 5-0 vs Chi, 4-0 vs Pitt and 5-0 vs NYR.

Cool Hab stat, in case anyone hasn't heard this...


The Habs have lost 6 times in regulation this year...AND HAVE BEEN OUTSCORED 30-3 IN THOSE GAMES.

@Anthony Petrielli Fair enough. But that's a pretty big depends. Give me an example...what would it take for you to trade Franson, or Winnick, or Santorelli or Booth (if he's producing)? They each have their relative values...on the market AND to the team on the ice.

@MaxwellHowe Tough to commit before seeing them play the whole year. I just think some fans need to realize that when you're in the playoff hunt you're gonna lose FA's at the end of the season.

@HeatherRickAkin It appears your Gunnar-hate has not abated, even though he's no longer playing for the Leafs.

@Burtonboy If they lock up Franson for 5 years (which I'm not against, he's been very good this year) then they have to explore trading either Dion or Gardiner. You can't have that many long-term contracts when you have so many prospects ready to push for spots.

@drummond You can't trade pending UFA's when you're in a Playoff hunt. You just can't do that to the fanbase. Or the other players. If every team locked up, or traded their pending UFA's then there wouldn't any available on July 1st. Every team lets players walk "for nothing", every year. It's not a sign of bad management. It's reality.

@Burtonboy I really like the way that Holland is playing, but bumping Naz off the PP unit is ridiculous. I've been upset he doesn't get 1st PP time, and now he'll get nothing. I hope it's not for long.

@WesternDP 752 games is a too small a sample size. Those numbers will regress.

@Burtonboy I dunno...I may be crazy, but is there a chance that playing the PP with Clarkson and Panik may actually be more difficult that playing with JVR and Kessel?

@Reimocerous I think it shows that both players haven been pretty shitty this year.


Edit: Top right is good and bottom left is bad.

@Anthony Petrielli If they really want to get some kids in there then those 3 guys will eventually be on waivers. And they'll go unclaimed, IMO.

@Nylander88 Stop trying to trade Kadri! He's our best centre...by a mile. There's no guarantee Nylander will ever play in the middle in the NHL.

@sniperstar He's not outproducing Kadri. Kadri has been great this year...generating offense for whatever plug linemates he's been stuck with. Playing great defensively, and even improving his FO%. The fact that Bozak gets 3X the PP time as Kadri is a joke.

@Cameron19 They tried to move Kelly this past summer and failed, but maybe they'll have better luck. And I think 72M might be optimistic.

@Mcost61 1) The Sedins didn't play in the NHL until they were 20. 2) They're both 6'2" and 200lbs. Much bigger than Nylander.

@Cameron19 I'm not sure where you get the 24M number. Even with Savrad's LTIR they have only 18M with about 10 guys to sign.

That Holland goal was by far the best Leaf goal this year. He did 3 amazing things on one play.

@Cameron19 Those guys were all kids when Toews showed up. The Hawks had been far worse than the Oilers were before drafting Toews. They had been to the Finals in 06. Likewise the Pens...they almost relocated. That's a far worse situation than was waiting for Hall etc.


Hindsight is 20/20...we see the improvement from those teams and assume it was well on its way to happening prior to them getting there. I think it's time to say maybe these guys in Edmonton aren't very good.

@Cameron19 A losing situation shouldn't automatically ruin a player. Sid went into a joke of a situation in Pittsburgh. Likewise Toews and Duchene. It's up to these young guns to change the culture...not the 3rd liners.

@Cameron19 They had some solid veterans...Staios, Horcoff, Visnovsky. It has to be a problem with their player development. I'd be curious to know if that's changed over the years. They're taking talented, winning kids and turning them into garbage.
