or...the Devils knock them off....

agreed...and i think Boston will make the first series a bruising one...if the Leafs get by Tampa the Bruins may be softened up a bit....

buh-bye Panthers.....

tonight the Islanders take on the Devils...and it's a big game for Jersey...with the Panthers losing this afternoon they could really put them in the rearview mirror with a win tonight..

I don’t think Babcock wants Bozak as a 4C, judging by the types we’ve traded for that position the past two seasons.

agreed..i'm ok with Bozak coming back as a 3C.....but the summer moves may change that...

seems like there are a lot of players lurking in the weeds tonight........Romanuk..... :-\ :-\

maybe Lou meant it when he said he liked his team as it is for this year...overall a good year..with some glaring occasional defensive lapses...hope for a first round match up with Tampa...and see how the playoff run goes...

first line for the next game against Washington,...Nylander...Kapanen...Matt Martin....

I don’t know that any of our prospects are as good as Komarov defensively. Johnsson is probably closest in terms of right place, right time, hard effort, but he does it in both directions. Not as sturdy as Komarov, but just straight up better overall and has some bite to his game too.

Grundstrom probably gets another half season on the Marlies before hitting Leafs in the back half of next season.

I think 4C will be another UFA buy, with Gauthier getting a chance again but unlikely to seal the deal as more than a call up sub, unless Babcock suddenly changes his mind about what constitutes an effective 4th line. If we strike out on Tavares, I can see Aaltonen getting a whirl on a sheltered third line with Johnsson and Kapanen/Brown. think Bozak is gone this summer ?

If there's cap space left after Tavares I'd totally do that.

i haven't seen much of Plekanec.. i know his game is not what it used to be...but Moore has played well lately..can it be Bozak on the move ?

it looks like there is some real team chemistry on the Leafs this year.....don't know if that makes a difference at the trade deadline...but the 4 forward lines are rolling....

If this makes sense vs. dealing Komarov and playing Sosh I don't see it.

agreed...maybe it was the injuries that hurt his value here...

i'm hoping the Bruins take top spot...i think their physicality is too much for the Leafs...Tampa may be a better match-up...the first round will be tough either way...
