Pat Quinn, who admired the way Russians played hockey, died the same day as legendary coach Viktor Tikhonov.

whoa.. Wings only had 5 shots in the 3rd. Two games in a row, the leafs have kept an opponent from drastically outshooting them once the Leafs have the lead.

@.JVR. @NinetyThree No.. but the question is in 3-4 years, Kessel would be 29-30, Phaneuf will be 32-33. Can they still be looked upon as part of the core to win at that point? We cant realistically say that with the current group Leafs would win before that point. If not, do we have players who can replace them?

Great article Anthony - so question is *if* we consider Kessel, J.V.R., Kadri, Phaneuf, Gardiner, Reilly & Bernier as core - what is the window to win a cup - 3-4 yrs? My fear is by the time, we are truly contenders, Kessel, Pjaneuf etc may be on the decline.

@dlb Mad From globe and mail 

"His first job with the team was taking care of sticks and water bottles as a dressing-room attendant when he was 11. Concussions ended Dubas’s playing days when he was 14, but didn’t curb his passion for the game. He took a job as a hockey operations assistant with the Hounds, exposing him to player development and the logistics of running a junior franchise. He moved to St. Catharines, Ont., in 2003 to enroll in Brock University’s sports management program, balancing a full-time course load with scouting junior B and midget games for the Greyhounds."


He used to play but got a bunch of concussions at 14.

@CanuckUKinToronto @dlb Reggie conspiracy question: wont the assistant questions look to undermine each other so they become the head coach later on? forget locker room cancers, this would be boardroom cancer.

Reply

Saw bits and pieces in the 2nd & 3rd period. some thoughts..

a) Kadri seemed to press for the hat-trick too much. couple of plays where he could have passed to JVR or Lupul and they had a better shot I thought. but otherwise a brilliant game from him.

b) Officiating - geez.. someone has to call them out. The Gunnarson penalty was clearly offside, no call on the cross check on Gleason and the JVR no-goal. thank god for replay.

c) Bernieeeeeerrrrrrr!!!!
