@Hammertownleaffan @Alec Brownscombe @Bruffins Lots of working it low to high and taking big slappers in this league. Scary without a mask or a jock on.

@Hammertownleaffan @Alec Brownscombe @Bruffins It isn't cheap to play, so I'll pretend it's a necessary part of league fees.

@Hammertownleaffan @Alec Brownscombe @Bruffins Haha, intense eh? It seems like unnecessary effort but they have a guy with a laptop tracking shots between benches. Actually had shot attempts available one game but not since.

@Jmessih Do the big-time AS folks like Phaneuf again now?

@Pent_House About 5'7-5'8? Dark hair? Tearing through page after page writing notes about the Leafs down furiously?

@Bruffins @Alec Brownscombe Been trying to model it after Leo Komarov. Drew a penalty tonight after pissing someone off and getting thrown into the back of the net.

Outshot the other team 50-20 in ball hockey and lost 9-8 tonight.
A good reminder of the Toskala years -- at least we have good goaltending boys.

@dlb Mad @Alec Brownscombe Well this appears to be the difference between us. You try to explain away things Carlyle does whereas I don't have much faith in the decision maker's competency, or at least, that the game hasn't passed him by.

@dlb Mad @Alec Brownscombe Think the point of the comment was that the score of the game lended itself nicely to keeping the minutes from getting out of control when the Leafs play tomorrow night. 4 line hockey becomes important in b2b situations, surely you agree.
You don't like some of our lower roster options, fine, but the point is, we signed a whack of depth forwards with the idea of building a 4th line for reasons like this... and Carlyle hasn't really given it a chance.
I agree to an extent the likes of Panik and Holland haven't really earned it in the icetime they have been given. I do wish we would have seen more rotation (why hasn't Ashton played a game? And yes, would've been nice to see Carrick) in order to stick to the gameplan of building a working 4th line rather than abandoning it so quickly.
@dlb Mad Not bittersweet at all. Very sweet when we win.
The funny part is thinking that one win seven games into the season in which the top line lit it up means we ignore everything that played out last season, when the top line experienced obvious burnout. Process is important.
We're just going by what Shanahan and Nonis have said -- we want to be a four line team. Carlyle doesn't seem to agree.I also am just fundamentally opposed to 7D. I really don't like the idea of mixing and matching d partners throughout a game, but that's more just a personal opinion.

@Fish Head We're too good, don't need one
Such a softtt call

At least the goal seems to have gone to the legs of the top line
And more good PK'ing from Winnik, Komarov and Holland
@Leafs_17 @Alec Brownscombe @Cameron19 @DeclanK Really obvious the team's only hope is to roll 4 lines with some speed and skill on each. This is garbage roster management.
@T K O Not Hitler... just bad at his job.
@Cameron19 @Alec Brownscombe @DeclanK Obsessed with line matching without a line that can match up with top lines. Interesting.
@DeclanK Hahaha. Some things never change.
@vinoa @Mcost61 @newkb Hahaha, I like it. It's like when someone says "no offense" and then tears a strip off of you and destroys your dignity.

@Bruffins That's the number one thing that chart from MimicoHero tells me.
They have to do a dramatic mix up of the top line and top 6. Time to get creative, we've seen for long enough, dating back to last season, that this isn't going to produce winning hockey.
@mr_hanie @Alec Brownscombe Seems reasonable.
@Mcost61 @vinoa @newkb Not so much "defensive guys" per se, just good two-way possession players.
@mr_hanie Typical in the sense that Leafs fans always do this to their top talent -- team's flawed? start with obsessing over the weaknesses of the best parts of the team! Yes, those are what's holding us back.. definitely.
Kessel hasn't been good enough in the first 6 games, absolutely. But this shit is ridiculous.
@mr_hanie K, this is getting stupid.
Kessel has his flaws, no doubt.
But he needs to have a better defensive center or a winger on the other side who isn't just as weak defensively as he is.Only they can't put up 35-40 goals, 80 points year in, year out.
To compare him to Yakupov is a joke and typical of this fan base.
@NotSince67 My guide's not telling me it's subject to blackout (it does for regional sportsnet games), but I'm worried too.

@ninepaces Just chatting with AP and Declan and these lines came up
Takes Clarkson out of the only situation he's looked half decent in, but that's nice looking overall.

@wendelsfist At least Santorelli is miles > McClement
@Mcost61 @Burtonboy That was Bozak-Kessel / Franson-Rielly

@Jay_Berg Can't think of a skilled player who addresses our needs less, really, than Yakupov

@loomx Yeah, that's the more realistic scenario. I just enjoy the thought of Carrick being on the team because he deserved it out of camp.

@ingy56 Carrick time!

@NotSince67 How much? Gonna be picking up tix either way but might be interested.
@Whalz Yeah, not sure what your point is here. How a team performs comes out in the wash with these numbers. It's not like the Leafs' corsi or fenwick numbers are good right now even if they're marginally improved.
It's true there's more than shot attempts that go into winning and losing games, if that's your point.

@Great Dane @Alec Brownscombe Must be your screen? We're seeing them as autofitted to the article.
@mtommy Winnik and Santorelli will be effective possession players, too.
It's both good and kind of sad just how much Santorelli stands out in a good away among our C group right now.

@mtommy There's also a cumulative chart for the season's totals down there at the bottom.
@mike_84 Not to anyone watching the games
Individual games when it comes to Corsi mean little but still couldn't help but notice Phaneuf with 20% ZS finished with 67% CF. Looked like he did reasonably well scoring chance wise too.
@Coldincowtown Thanks buddy. Kind of you to say.
@Loric76 @Alec Brownscombe Yeah but it's a LOT of shits

It's a one man show with me on the game review tonight, so pardon the delay.. Posting soon
And, of course, Gustavsson gets the shutout.
