I hate teams that play the trap

I had a few hours to kill on Sunday and this and Thor were both starting at the same time. While I was walking around beforehand I was listening to Kermode and Mayo film review show off BBC Radio which is a really great show and Kermode described it as "really shoddy, really ill-conceived, spectacularly messy, thunderously boring".

So I went for Thor and it was great fun.


I think I like this Marner and Matthews combo...

So does Matt Martin need to fight someone from Montreal who had nothing to do with those Kadri incidents now?

Assist for Andersen!

Comfortably the best Leafs goalie since Belfour

16-6 in shots doesn't feel quite right. Shot attempts must have been a bit closer?

We know   ;)

Is the Cage YouTube link about anywhere? Can't find it on Reddit anywhere...

Interesting, just to go back as far as 2000 (which sort of ties in with when I began following the Leafs more or less) there's quite a few good players in there. Problem is most of them probably ended up being better once they left Toronto...

I hate the way Hughson smeagols these awful nicknames into his commentary

I thought last night was probably his most obvious stand out game so far

Looking at the replay I can see what you're saying, but it looks to me he's leaning on that leg to change position as he see's the Minny player begin to lean on his edges to change direction.

Yeah. Obviously, the intention to stick his leg out to trip the Wild player wasn't there, but, his leg was, unfortunately, and penalties get called in that situation on a regular basis.

It was  bit like in soccer where the attacking player kind of leaves his foot in to make contact and get brought down for a penalty. It is a penalty but it's either clever and professional or annoying and deceitful depending if it's in your team's favour or not

This is a pretty horrible game. The Wild play pretty ugly hockey and the Leafs are doing a lot of standing around or look like they're skating through porridge at times. And then those giveaways/zone flying issues are making it look even worse. If it wasn't for Andersen this would be very ugly.
