Here's how they bring them home in Michigan.  This was taken just this past weekend by a friend of a friend.

@vinoa @traNsplantEdneWfie Maybe but I think we could use a Leo or Clarkson type on the first line to stir some shit.

Here's a coaching strategy I would like to see the Leafs try.


Put together 4 pairs of skilled guys.  These would be your best 4 centers, paired with your best 4 wingers.  The focus in practice would be for guys to gel as pairs rather than trios.  This usually happens anyways because centers tend to favour getting the puck to one guy over the other.  This would create some chemistry.

Then, add your remaining 4 wingers to those pairs.  These four wingers would be the grinders, the guys that are hard on the forecheck and create turnovers for the pairs.


Pairs example:

Kessel - Kadri

JVR - Bozak

Lupul - Santi

Winnik - Holland 


Grinders to complete each line:

Komorov

Clarkson

Kozun

Ashton

Carrick

So, Kadri wants to be like Tavares unh?  Well, let's hope he gets there with the Leafs.

@Radar O'Rielly I'd like to see it but in reality the Habs don't have the personnel to match.  If they're smart they'll stay away from any shenanigans.

@Tom S @dlb Mad @Yan28 Every player should take it on themselves to make their line/team better.  I hate it when I hear a guy gets traded to a certain team with the best chance of winning.  Win yourself you fucking fucktard!

@Ratzshite @traNsplantEdneWfie We need to push the panic button for them by dangling a trade that improves their defense.  It might be only 4 games but they're not even competing.  They're an AHL team.

@dlb Mad @traNsplantEdneWfie I just think you put Yak on the right team (not the dysfunctional Oilers) and he soars.

@dlb Mad @traNsplantEdneWfie You wouldn't do Gardiner for Yakupov?

Could we not upgrade our 2nd line winger position with a trade to the Oil?  They could surely use a Gardiner or Franson.

@Burtonboy @Xxxxxnew But that is the prototypical skilled center size anyway.

@LyGuy @TheLoovTrain There's no way Nylander is ready for the top line in the NHL next year.  He needs one more year in Sweden, a year in the Marlies/Leafs to slowly bring him in.  He'll probably play his first full year in 2016/17.

That might have been the best, most complete game I've seen in recent memory.  Efforts like that and we'll easily be in the show.

Great to see the Habs back to earth last night.  My analysis of that team is that they need to play in over their heads every night to win.  As soon as they take a night off, there's not enough star talent to carry them.  You simply can't have ultimate success with that line-up.

In the spring I campaigned on here that we will not win with Kessel on this team.  He's a great talent but his game  is too one-dimensional.  He's a great asset that we should take advantage of NOW.  Trade him to a team with an abundance of center talent while we can - IF we can.  As for Phaneuf, trade him for anything!

@Bruffins @Scottish Leaf They don't play strong defensively, so, if you can cut down their offense you have a pretty good shot at winning.
