I'm kind of glad he missed that chance just for this golden quote

This game should probably be the 8-0 Arn asked for.

I'll take the Freddie shutout and the win. Enjoyable game really. This last 20 or so games is starting to pay back the sleepless nights watching the likes of Jason Blake skating laps and shooting straught at the goalie or John Mitchell centring a top line and just generally Vesa Toskala

I've changed my mind. I'm marrying Andersen instead

Lol Marleau

He's oh-fer on essentially a hat trick of setups.

MarLOL is what you were looking for there...

I don't like that this is only a one goal game still

All these missed good chances could be costly...

What an enjoyable period. Skewed a bit by the powerplay the Panthers started well enough but by the middle of the period the Leafs were taking over.

Nice to see Babcock adjust the match ups to free Matthews from Barkov too

Thanks all and happy birthday hf1!

I'm hoping for a Polak goal as an early present

Ohhh you mean the other thing? I'm getting a trip to Cape Town out of it so can't complain i suppose

But I've finished work so don't have to get up early tomorrow so can sit up late to watch the whole game ;D

So the Leafs are required to won tonight as it's my last leafs game as a free man and I'm holding my tmlfans bachelor party right here in this GDT  8)

Is Nik Cage doing his YouTube links again these days?

I think this is the usual Leafs fans over-reaction to moving a complimentary part. I don't think he'll be a loss - there's plenty of other options. Probably would have liked a bit more than a 4th rounder but obviously the organisation was probably dealing from a position of weakness on several fronts.

Outside of the obvious few players I'd say anything on the roster should be available for trade anyway but in that case we're probably dealing from a position of strength as we don't HAVE to move someone in that case.

Australia literally proves that introducing gun controls can make a difference.

On April 28, 1996, a 28-year-old Australian man named Martin Bryant ate lunch at Broad Arrow Cafe in Port Arthur, Tasmania, a historic penal colony that is a popular tourist resort. After his meal, he returned his tray, removed a semiautomatic rifle from his bag, and opened fire. By the time Bryant was caught a day later, 35 people were dead and 23 wounded in what became the worst mass shooting in Australian history—one whose impact is felt even today.

He noted that, among other things, the Australian government “banned automatic and semiautomatic firearms, adopted new licensing requirements, established a national firearms registry, and instituted a 28-day waiting period for gun purchases. It also bought and destroyed more than 600,000 civilian-owned firearms, in a scheme that cost half a billion dollars and was funded by raising taxes.”

There was widespread opposition at the time to the legislation. Queensland and Tasmania, where the massacre occurred, were traditionally opposed to any gun-control legislation.

The number of mass shootings in Australia—defined as incidents in which a gunman killed five or more people other than himself, which is notably a higher casualty count than is generally applied for tallying mass shootings in the U.S.—dropped from 13 in the 18-year period before 1996 to zero after the Port Arthur massacre. Between 1995 and 2006, gun-related homicides and suicides in the country dropped by 59 percent and 65 percent, respectively, though these declines appear to have since leveled off.
