Man, when I look at our D ... I mean, I love the Boss but he's not a top pairing guy.   

But if you demote Hainsey his feelings might get hurt and we need to make veterans feel good and moving them down the lineup doesnít make them feel good.  I mean doing to Marner or Nylander is fine because they are young but guys like Komarov need to feel loved otherwise they might feel sad.

Gardiner-Rielly
Dermott-Zaitsev
Hainsey-Carrick

Like, our playoff spot is basically 100% guaranteed. Why not just try it for a week or two?

Hainsey has been regressing pretty fiercely to me.   His inability to make an outlet pass is really starting to be an issue.   If the Leafs arenít collapsing back Hainsey just shoots the puck out and it results in a turnover.  Having one guy do it isnít great but when Polak plays regularly itís two guys who just hand the puck over to the opposition when they get it in the defensive zone.


And yeah, Zaitsev has been bad since coming back from injury and he really wasnít having a great sophomore season before the injury.  I thought the first 7-10 games he looked really good and has struggled since then.

Admittedly I just did a quick flip through Bozak's game log but I don't think he has a point in late game situations 6 on 5.

Babcock: I know, we are down by a couple of goals.  Let's sit Matthews and Nylander in favour of Bozak!

He wanted Matthews on the last shift. Bozakís group just happened to put together decent zone time.

The Leafs had a timeout.  Put Matthews out there.  If he scores.  You take a time out and leave him out there.

Or prioritize giving opportunity to the pair that had two points on the night paired with the two that have been tearing up the scoresheet the past ten games?

Eh, I'd still rather have my best player on the ice with the game on the line.  If Komarov didn't have hands of stone Matthews would have been sitting on two points tonight too.

Not sure I get the point of bringing Hyman back out for essentially just one shift. Maybe he passed concussion protocol but he got hit in the head pretty good.

Don't worry, he'll miss a game or two with an "upper body injury".

8
Lol Polak with a zone exit with possession and a zone entry with possession and a chance at the net. Misses completely.

His offensive instincts are completely non-existent.

Bozak just handed the puck back to the Penguins....that goal is entirely on him

10
Wait, did that replay just show that Komarov's stick didn't actually break there?  So he just shanked a glorious setup?

11
Polak skating down below the net again for absolutely no reason.

12
Komarov takes Hyman's spot hahaha

To be fair, the Leafs need a goal to tie the game.  Komarov 15 points > Kapanen 5 points.  Babcock logic.

13
It's a trip AND Maata puts a push into Hyman's back before either player had touched the puck.  Call it a push from behind/boarding.  Call it a trip.  Call it interference.  Nope, no penalty.

Jonas Siegel doing the legwork on selling my idea of focusing on bolstering the centres, rather than fixating on a top-2 RHD.

Do we really need a 4th line Center to pull Matthews down to 15 minutes per game?  It just seems like any 4th line acquisition just replaces Moore and thatís likely a rental and certainly not a guy who turns the Leafs into a bigger threat against Tampa.

Well that seems like a smart thing to do to save 400 thousand bucks.

I donít know, it seems like Stroman has some paper thin skin and seems to lash out on Twitter over a lot of stuff.
