@ToasterStrudel lol. Great. Except he had 61% and Holland and Santorelli had 67%. Oh hey Clarkson and JVR were 100% last night....maybe they should play 1C. I'll be more impressed with the faceoffs when it's against a team that dominates them like the Bruins. Bozak is a decent player, but he brings nothing to his line. He hasn't even been as defensively sound as before. Maybe it's the injury, but either way, just because the guy's a decent player, it doesn't mean that he's beyond criticism.

@ingy56 @vinoa @Burtonboy That's true. We can't let the crazies intimidate us. I just read that only the gunman had died. I was under the impression that a soldier had died as well.

@ProfessorRance @Mind Bomb @Yan28 I had to settle for Ph9 and JVR this year. Had Kessel and Franson (until January) last year.

@Burtonboy They should probably call it off. Not the best scenario for a hockey game.

@Mcost61 @Bruffins I fucking hate Bozak. He seems to have taken a step back defensively.

@dlb Mad @vinoa Yeah they'll play stand up all day, but they'll have all the Leafs games. It's the only station that I don't have to guess whether or not they're playing the game. The jokes are censored, but they have a wide range of comedians so some of it might not be good for young kids.

@MikeGartner11 @king leary Yeah JT's really worked on his speed and agility since hitting the league. RC protected Kadri during the lockout year and gave him a bit more exposure last year. Hopefully this year Kadri emerges as a dependable C for the tough matchups.

@Knights2Leafs @Mitch92 Holy crap! JT, Perry, Kane, Nash, Horvat, Carlson, Methot, Girardi, and so many other names. Shanny even played for them. This guy's produced more NHL players than most AHL teams.

@Mitch92 @Ze_theLeafsFan So Kadri, Percy, Finn, Leivo, Rupert, Carrick, etc. weren't enough and Connor Brown is where we started drafting homegrown talent? Cherry's a moron and the people who quote him need to do some fact checking first.

@traNsplantEdneWfie I think RC already has a preference for tandems over trios. Hence the Kessel/Bozak and Kadri/Lupul lines.

@BPsotka @vinoa @Alec Brownscombe @Mcost61 @newkb Then look at the Penguins. Bozak would probably slot in after Crosby, Sutter, and Malkin (even though he's playing the wing right now). On St. Louis he'd be behind Backes and Stastny,  Anaheim behind Getzlaf and Kesler. Even on Dallas he'd be a 3C. He wouldn't be a top 6 on any contenders and he's our 1C. That's the difference between the Leafs and the elite teams.

@Alec Brownscombe @vinoa @Mcost61 @newkb Lol it's an idiom that's overused for sure, but I feel the need to put these disclaimers in order to not upset the "Bozak's not the problem" crowd. Also, looking at the Kings roster, I don't even know if Bozak would play center on that team.

Reply

@Mcost61 @vinoa @newkb It's now or never for the Kessel era. He's in his prime and he's a PPG player in the toughest league in the world. No disrespect to Bozak, but he wouldn't even crack a top 9 position on a contender.

@BPsotka @Alec Brownscombe @Bruffins Which is odd considering that switching up the lines is precisely the reason we took Boston to 7 games, and of course Reimer being unstoppable in games 5 and 6.

Reply

@Mcost61 @vinoa @newkb Yeah that's precisely my point. We're lucky to have a talent like Kessel, but not if we can't give him the linemates that he needs to thrive off his game. At this point, they either need to get Kessel a legit 1st line C, or trade him to a team that's just missing a proven sniper to go all the way.

@newkb Patrick Kane's no more defensively savvy than Kessel, but the Hawks have won 2 cups with him as their leading scorer...surely it's just a coincidence.

@BPsotka @vinoa @Bruffins @Alec Brownscombe @MimicoHero They're great tools for evaluating a large enough sample size. It's not a coincidence that Kessel's possession numbers took a nosedive when he came to TO. He's a rush player, but he's one of the best in the league. I'd like to see how these guys would look under different systems before coming to a conclusion about their underlying numbers. Let's see how Winnik and Santa do with this team.

@ingy56 @In it to Winnik @newkb If Colton Orr can play close to 500 games in the NHL, surely you can last a shift or 2. Have you considered joining our 4th line? You wouldn't even need to hit the ice!
