Weird.  Their goals against was almost 6,5,4,3,2.  Let's see what happens against the Kings.
I ain't making any predictions at all, I am so passed those days

In the words of Jeff Goldblum "It's a countdown."

I don't mind any interview where the player takes the time to thank the interviewer by their name at the end of it.

Given your druthers, would you rather have Matthews score 60 - 70 goals but end up with less than 100 points, or would you rather have him score around 40 goals but end up over 100 points?

Morgan had 1 point in the first game, 2 points in the second game, 3 points in the third game, and 4 points in the fourth.

Quick, figure out how many points he finishes with.

The Leafs are 3 - 0 in games where you don't predict a win  :D.
I really have to refrain from that Detroit game tomorrow cause I have thoughts about it

We are all thinking it.  Matthews shot versus Berniers glove hand.  We all know how we hope that plays out.  We just aren't saying it.

So, I did a quick calculation. The averages of the predictions were:

Matthews 50
Tavares 39

At current pace players are on course for:

Matthews 144
Tavares 123

Marner only on course for a medicore 41

Though I'm not sure that's sustainable.

Yeah, no way Marner hits that.

Nice rebuttal.  I feel overwhelmed by facts right now.

The truth of the matter is that you are a slightly more knowledgable and somewhat less obnoxious version of Nik the Trik.  You like to toot your own horn.  You rarely if ever post in agreement with *anyone* on here.  I can also see how someone like you would not see the importance of team chemistry.  You're probably the type of person that would disrupt it.

Its amusing reading your constant posts attacking others and acting holier than thou over and over again.  It really is.
Of course, complain about my complaining about the bull**** instead of the bull**** itself.  Nice.  That would be like telling someone not to complain after you punch them in the face.

You can call it holier-than-thou if you want.  I personally believe in treating others with respect.  That goes for them as a person and also their opinions and POV.  I have no issue with herman and nik the trik disagreeing with me.  I expect it quite frankly.  It's just how they roll.  They don't just do it with me.  Other people also.  My issue is with the whole "LOL" comment.  The mockery.  Want to disagree with me?  Fine.  But that kind of bull**** is completely stupid, yet it's not only condoned on here but your little gang of trolls works together to perpetuate it.  It's like you guys are giving each other virtual high fives and talking down to anyone you don't agree with.  Pathetic.

What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some people you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you people.

1st, 2nd, 3rd round picks would be the compensation.

Not a bad return.  :-\

That's what Tomas Tatar got.

So looking at plus/minus, the top two lines all pluses, bottom two lines are all minuses.

The 1980s called.  They want their hockey game back.

I take full responsibility for this loss.  I had no idea that my predicting a win and colouring in green would put such a heavy burden on Freddie Andersen and turn him into a sieve.  I have to check my powers next time.

With great power comes great responsibility.  All the greats needed to learn this at some point.

And we're off and rolling:


P.S. yes, I've put the Sens game in as a win already, I don't care if you think it's jinxing it, I'm guaranteeing a win, all that's left are the details....

Zee, not saying you jinxed them, but maybe next time don't make guarantees unless you are playing in the game.  Stupid NHL with it's stupid parity.

Well depends on how long they wait. Do they really need Nylander in the first 30 games or so? The entire season is about getting ready for the playoffs.

And part of that is putting yourself in good playoff seeding. A few points here or there might not mean the difference between making the playoffs or not but it can absolutely be the difference between who you face in the playoffs.

And, yeah, I'd still consider half of a minimum salary player to be relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of things cap wise. You're talking about .4% of the cap at most.
It all adds up. Leafs will only have played 13 games by November 1st, why not play it by ear and see how the team is doing. If they get along fine without Nylander they learn to play while missing guys in the future due to injury or what not.  Then once Nylander gets back you inject more skill and team gets a boost. As long as the Leafs are winning games I don't see this as an issue, in fact it's a benefit

The only downside is that Nylander might be half a step behind for the first little bit when he comes in.  He'll be in shape, but he'll still have to get some reps in before he is back to full strength, but I think that is something that is offset by him maybe being fresher down the stretch.
