Nonis has made mistakes

Bernier, Polak, Santa and resigning Komo aren't amongst them

I missed the games, thanks for the review

Good nite folks

KAdri plays well against the Sens

The Kid went to the Brian Burke School of Public Speaking

He needs to shut up and produce. Like John Tavares!!

1-0 already

On the way out to play shinny. If I put up the effort these guys have lately, I'll get benched

Nice that we got MArc Hunter, I guess. A 1C would he been better

@Bruffins @Burtonboy There is some good stuff happening this season no doubt. We are struggling along with our top players being less than ordinary


Nevertheless , the Leafs have special talent for losing games they could or should win. Thats whats so Fracking frustrating about them 


Last nite, the opener. Countless points given away down the stretch last year.

Bernier gave us a Belfour like, Vezina worthy performance last nite


HerEs the rub. If this team doesn't show improvement, whats his motivation for resigning with the Leafs

@LyGuy They brought Frattin in to provide scoring on the 2nd or 3rd  line. He hast risen to the occasion, though he hasnt been give much of an oppurtunity


Winnick was supposed to be a 4th line guy . Now he's playing 2nd line and thats a probleM

@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @Burtonboy I  give it to the 20 game mark


Over our last 20 we are 4-15-1


I dont expect  to be that bad after 20 this year but who knows. The next 5 games are no picnic  . If we go 2-3 , 2-2-1 or 3-2 , Carlyle  gets more time, but if its 1-4 ,something gotta give

@Burtonboy You're still tinkering around the edges. We are getting beat at the dot. We start with the puck 30 to 40 % less than the other side. Komorov, Winnick and Clarkson were taking face-offs last nite .

Frattin had one great hit and one turnover and was stapled to the bench. He also nearly scored because he has a release that is world class. All that in 3 minutes


Gardiner has lost his confidence. From a standstill , his first step is slow . 


If Frattin could get his head screwed  on right he could be on the 2nd r 3rd  line and Winnick would be playing where he was signed to play, on the 4th


Of course this doesn't address the problem that out best C is mike Santorelli. I don't know what Nonis is doing out West, but I hope its more than accumulating frequent flyer points

@Knights2Leafs @Zep2 Im not suggesting tanking. But the reality is that the way we are now playing , I don't think we beat the Isles, Ott , or Jackets. We might rise to the occasion and beat the Bruins and we should beat Buffalo.


I can see major changes coming, starting with Carlyle. This team has played a 1/2 of period on home ice with enthusiasm.

Best case scenario, we end Oct, a game under .500


Worse case we lose to very one but our MacDavid competitor

Maybe so, but Kessel and Bozak started in the offensive zone with 23 seconds left. How is that goal on Carlyle.

Fire him, sure. but take a few other scalps too.

With just a modicum of luck against the Habs and tonite, we could be 3-2-1 or 4-2 and we would be all smiles. But this team has a certain genius in finding ways to lose

There is something missing . The desire to win maybe

Yeah, if they lose tonite, the emperor is pretty naked. They might as well go all in on MacDavid / Eichel

I thought the Leafs could come in and get 3 of 4 its and show they were a team on the move or a split to show they are  at least competent


The split is still possible, but if they get swept the results will speak for themselves. 2-4 this season 4-16 over the last 20


Thats Sabres and Carolina bad

Time to fish or cut bait


Looking at the scoring chances and TOI , it looks like the 2nd line, Percy and Polak got eaten alive


Top line looked ok but played less than normal


The team can't get firing on all cylinders


Record in is now 4-15post L.A. miracle game in March. A loss tonite would put our record at 4-16 , 20 % of possible points


If they don't show up tonite, Shanahan needs to fire Carlyle and Nonis , trade Ph9 for futures, consider moving Kessel and coaSt into the lottery. They got the coasting down pat, that shouldn't be a problem.


You might have to hire extra staff to pick jerseys off the ice

@LN-093 Babcock is probably the better coach , but I don't think he's a miracle cure. 


He inherited a  team that was a 2 time Cup winner and was loaded with HOF level talent and one of the best minor league systems in the game. 


Carlyle and Wilson before him weren't dealt the same cards

Maybe Babcock is a better coach


But history shows that 2 things can win a Cup


The best talent or insane goaltending , coaching is not that big a factor


See Scotty Bowmans run in Mtl . He fluked a Cup when Dryden stood on his head, then he won 3 in a row because he had the best team and another because Don Cherry can't count to five
