  1. Marner definitely looked motivated and dangerous. Sometimes Babcocks stubbornness seems to be a bit "Fuck you" advanced stats with the Hyman, Komorov, Martin etc. I just really someday want to see Leivo instead of Martin, and Brown on Kadri's line again. Though I guess I should not complain after a 2-0 win! Go Leafs!

    Marner hasn't been carrying the play like he did at the beginning of last year. Don't know if he's hurt, or confidence issues, but he isn't carrying the puck and flying through the neutral zone like he used to. He should be playing better, because the Matthews line is getting all the top d pairs.

    Did TSN 1050 really give Dart Guy a radio show? ugh, can they not find anybody good for that spot?
  4. I guess Gardiner is going to be the whipping boy this year? Was Gardiner to blame on the 5 on 3 shorthanded goal, yes, absolutely. But it also took a weird bounce of the boards right to the devils player. In that game Borgman and Rosen looked like they were not able to handle the speed of the Devils at all. When Gardiner was on the ice, things settled down a lot more. As for the PP, I like the creativity that the Leafs PP has, it doesn't depend on a booming shot from the point, instead using their skill players to create better chances down low. Gardiner is a big part of that.

    I don't think I would. I love Doughty, but trading away a young offensive start like Nylander would be hard to do. I'm ok with outscoring the rest of the league with depth, and hoping the defence and goaltending can hold the other team to 5 goals or less each night.

    The dream is that they sit Martin and have a 4th line that can drive play and score goals with Leivo-Moore-Brown. But I'm just not sure that Babcock will do that. If they keep winning, I agree, Leivo is just going to sit.
  7. Leafs acquire G Cal Pickard

    Nice, goaltending depth is good. Goes to the Marlies?

    Interesting, I wonder if they plan to move people in and out of the "extra D" spot more often. Can't imagine you want Rosen sitting in the press box long term. I'm wondering the same about Leivo, maybe wishful thinking, but maybe they plan to move Martin, Fehr, Leivo in and out of the lineup more often.

    It was actually Lou Lameriello in a white coat.

    Seems like a very low risk projection - "We don't have enough data on Matthews, Marner, Nylander to project what they will do this year."

  12. Random Thoughts #2

    Could be that she is stressed about starting school? My four year old definitely has sleeping issues when he's stressed about something. They usually pass once the stress is gone, but we let him sleep with us in those situations, everyone gets more sleep that way.

    That sucks. Thoughts go out to Emma and her family, hope for some good news.

    AA did move a lot of pieces, but not many of them have really turned into anything for the teams that acquired them. And what I loved about AA was his drafts, he loved drafting pitchers early on, as he knew that if he needed to make a trade, pitching prospects are what everybody is looking for. I do like what Shapiro has done with the International signings, and drafting Bichette looks like a great move. It's impossible to know how different the team would be with AA at the helm. But I think he would have gotten more done at the trade deadline. It's pointless to have guys here that aren't going to contribute to this team in 2-3 years. To think that this same group is going to bounce back next season when they are another year older is ridiculous.

    They seem so paralyzed with fear that attendance might go down if they trade away big name players. Big deal, it will go down if your old ass team sucks as bad as they have and you don't do anything to get younger. On a good note, Bo Bichette is hitting even better since getting promoted (hitting .410 in 20 games). Vladdy Jr has had a slight dip in production, but he is only 18.
