Shit! I think RC told them to just hang on to the lead. Let the hounds loose, don't hold them back.

Notice the difference tonight? Detroit choked the Leafs shooting lanes. The Isles have left them open.

Aside from the new additions there's not too much toughness on this team from it's players.

The refereeing lately is the salt on the wound for us. It'll be next to impossible to climb out of this one.

Until this club learns to adapt they will not succeed. They run this business like a good old boys club. This might of worked barely in the 60's but no way you can run a business that way today or a sports enterprise. Things move and change so fast now you can't afford to be a one hit wonder and live off the avails.

@Burtonboy @deedrag  I think Shanny has given the green light to start rebuilding. Management is his first priority.

Perhaps this is a prelude to Nonis getting sacked in the future also?

I've come to the conclusion, that aside from a few players on this team, we have no real depth. The biggest problem with the depth, is not having the right kind that we need. We perceive that depth to be many things but fail to define what we real need from that depth. Adaptability is what's missing. From coaching, to players (of course not all are this way) they lack adaptability. When something doesn't work, in order to survive, you have to willing to change/adapt. We all can see the ones that are willing to adapt. These and only these types of people should be brought in by management. What good is a sniper if your target is up close to you? What good is speed with a wall in your way? Adapting is the key to success. People have been using this simple idea forever. If we want a team with real depth we need adaptability. Crap, even the guy we didn't expect much from "Clarkson" has adapted!!!!

Connor McDavid : 25 points after 9 games. I really covet this guy for the Leafs!!!!!!!!!! He's on a pace to hit (dare I say it?) 200 points! You won't get a chance like this for maybe 15 years or more. Get it done. Lock up some first picks right now in case we end up in 13th or something. Always have a back up plan!

@Anthony Petrielli @Yan28  Try Holland on the first line. Move Kadri to the 3rd, put Santorelli on the 4th and Bozak on the 2nd. Since they are experimenting, try every option now to see what we really have. The 4th will benefit with Santorelli.

@whalz  I don't know what they have they could help us. Their players are smaller in general. We need some bigger guys for certain positions. Not guys that get bumped off the puck with minimal effort from the opposing team. If they can play like Kozun then I'm for it.

I was thinking it's too bad some things in hockey have changed. Can you imagine sucking this bad and having to go work a regular job like they used to before? Can you imagine all the hate you'd get at work. Wow, they really don't know how lucky they are, playing in the modern era.

Damn it, if we could trade for some of Philly's players that are tough, for some of our finesse players, I think both teams would benefit.

Here's a real mind fuck? Wasn't our AHL team better than Detroit's AHL team last year? If Detroit is basically playing an AHL team why the fuck don't we have more AHL players in the line up to beat them?  RC! That's why!!!!!!!!!!!!

@MaxwellHowe  It seems that way from their play. They are not reading each other or the plays well except for Komarov, Santa, Clarkson, Lupul, Rielly, Bernier, Reimer, Percy, and Kozun (hope he gets well soon!).

@Leafs2 Isles1 @WendelGilmour @T K O  The Detroit player that cross checked Kozun into the boards didn't get any penalty for doing it to a smaller player. It's a Toronto thing. Because they make so much money as an organization they get a lot of hate from everywhere. They could leave the NHL and still make enough money to run their own separate league and help keep 20 teams afloat with subsidies.

I was thinking if Kozun had been playing with Lupul and Kadri more would he have gotten hurt and would the second line have gotten more goals?

If Dion is going to be successful pair him up with Rielly or Gardiner.

Rielly-Dion

Gardiner-Robidas

Percy-Polak

Please stick to this until they are comfortable with each other and gel.
