@dlb eh @charlieb83 As long as he is paired with others who have a chance at moving up the lineup, I don't see the problem with starting him on the 4th line. If he was going to play 2 minutes a night with Colton Orr, then yeah, that would be a crappy place to put him.

@dlb eh That's what the article suggested Ashton is. Nothing wrong with starting those guys on the 4th line but playing meaningful minutes and letting them work their way up the lineup.
@Jmessih Great read.
I would love to see a 4th line consisting of D'Amigo, Broll and/or Ashton. Playing them 10-12 minutes.
So sick of 2 minutes of Colton Orr.
@Komas Taberle @Burtonboy @Shift_Disturber1 @Belfour20/JB-45 He manned up. I think that earns him a pass. Gotta understand his situation.
@TheCanucksnaphook @charlieb83 Any interesting points as far as coaching or personnel change?

Please someone summarize the important parts. Way too lazy to watch it all.
@Knights2Leafs @TheCanucksnaphook And every time he rushes into the offensive zone he stops by the half boards and turns and either gives it away, falls and gives it away or makes a meaningless pass and gives it away. Can the man not shoot or crash the net? JVR does it, albeit with more size but (a little?)less speed. Hell, Kessel did it and scored.

@Knights2Leafs Rielly really only got 11:40??????
@Yaknowwhat That last loss really was critical. Think about if they had won it - take 2 points away from Detroit and give it to us and it changes the picture a lot.
@MaxwellHowe @mikeshaver @mcloki Just barely made it.
@MaxwellHowe Playoffs? What playoffs? Do you know how impossible it will be to make the playoffs?
@Greg Fenton @CanuckUKinToronto Why is Nicholson the man for the job? Choosing a team from a pool of superstars seems a bit easier than making deals and signings for the Leafs.
@dlb eh @CanuckUKinToronto What's the point? So when the same thing happens next season, we fire Randy and all the new assistants? Surely we don't hire a new coach and give him old assistants just to continue the cycle of try firing the assistants first.
@Chris Jay @Black_Hawk He was so out-muscled it was crazy. But it got Lucic off the ice for 5 minutes, so that's a bonus. Plus it might have ended us seeing Clarkson this season.
@DJBrianBurke No way he said that to his own player. That would be a huge dick thing to say to a teammate.
@loomx Blitzed you could probably live it out.
@Savo43 He would be a great 3-4 if we could get a stud #1 to pair with Dion.
Won't happen obviously, since where the hell do you find stud #1 dmen? Other than Minny signing one last year.
@Anthony Petrielli Gardiner holding the line towards the end, dancing around some Bruins player and then turning and making that pass was a thing of beauty.
@Bruffins Ashton so high up is a reach though. Sucks to have Holland buried on the fourth line without guys who can really score.
@LeafsManiac @loomx @zakimak Will you people relax?

@Yaknowwhat And for a better draft pick.
@Yaknowwhat That's precisely why I want a loss.
@LeafsManiac Hoping for a loss.
@Optimistic Otis The lack of calling a timeout in game 7 still is mind-boggling and will go down as one of the wonders of the world.
@wiski What stings about it? It's not like they're in the midst of a tight playoff race.

On a positive note, we have a legit chance of drafting 6th overall.
Drivel drivel drivel, that's all I hear.

@dlb eh @charlieb83 I don't expect them to dominate but the getting out-shot and out-possessed every damn game is pathetic.

@dlb eh We haven't looked good THE WHOLE SEASON!
@ Don Cherry I sat Gold for the Tampa game this past week.
Oh wait, I didn't pay for them. That's why I didn't feel like I wasted money.

@Yaknowwhat I don't know about you but I've been advocating for Carlyle's dismissal all season.
@Knights2Leafs I always wanted him also, but his stint in Washington wasn't too impressive.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Knights2Leafs Didn't Lou take over the coaching that season? They were doing well and in a playoff spot and towards the end of the season he fired him and took over himself.
@Burtonboy @Yan28 From what I've heard, he's an excellent developer not an NHL winner.

@loomx @Bring the Cup Home MacWilliam all the way.
@Burtonboy And D'amigo
@dlb eh He's been brutal on this losing streak. It has always been such a cliche how Bernier "has a calming influence" but man, is that ever true. It seems like Reimer's game is scrambling and battling every play and game but Bernier really plays a calm, cool and collected game and it really shows.

@dlb eh He's phenomenal. I wouldn't trade him for most of the league.
