Why not have Matthews with Marner and Martin?  Auston has missed a few games because of a cracked rib., from what i've read. We don't need the likes of Weber having his way with our star.
That line is certainly an option and with the lines changing all the time, it looks like they play well together with two good looking goals.

I'd like to see Leivo on the 4th and Marner in the press box. Need to start fitting this kid into the lineup.

As with a lot of you

Hyman w HM to #22 with a great effort.

Is it time to give some of the rookies a rest? Maybe stand back for a game or two more for giving the body a rest, and to see the game in a different light.

nice to win in Buffalo.

Jason Smith is the new head coach of the Kelowna Rockets WHL.
Played parts of three seasons for the leafs and was one tough S.O.B.
and was part of the Gilmour trade that sent Dougie G. to the Devils. Look forward to what he brings to the Rockets team.

But, for seven years??  Snow is not right in the head. imo

I personally havn't seen the "wow" in Tulo. Sure hope he finds his game in the up coming week. Time for another win streak.

There just has to be some kind of suspension. Totally deliberate. Hope it's a quick recovery.

Maple Leafs: Gritty, hard-working squad the real deal: Cox
This Leafs team is a solid hockey club, a big, physical team with strong penalty killing, efficient netminding and enough youth to imagine this might be a group built for successful seasons beyond this one.

January 15, 2015:
Why Shanahan must blow up the Maple Leafs: Cox
Shanahan has a core group of players that isn’t good enough or strong enough or committed enough to take this team anywhere meaningful. As Sportsnet colleague Jeff Blair recently pointed out, that core group also isn’t particularly likeable to the public.

So opinions aren't allowed to change based on results?

Did not say that.  But it's a good argument to put Cox out to pasture if his columns can do nothing but mold his viewpoint to the current state of the team.  Make playoffs in lockout season? Solid hockey club built for future success.  Miss playoffs and struggling? Bad core.

You or I could do that for free.  Emblematic of the issue a lot of people have with these guys.

But I posted it to have a quick snicker at.

I agree with you in part...and i'm not a fan in particular of Damien, but I do believe he is paid to comment on the current status of the team - Which, in my mind at least, has changed significantly since April 13, 2013.

Not really - back then the team exhibited basically most of the same issues as when Carlyle was fired.  They were saved by it being a 48 game season.  So that's why it rings hollow - if your analysis extends only so far as 'playoffs = good, not playoffs = bad' well it's not very useful.  I think that's why so many of us now gravitate towards blogs (or Mirtle and a couple others) who are doing far deeper and more meaningful analysis.

Just annoying to some degree that Cox still has such a prominent position.

Totally agree with your opinion of Cox. Bigger the screw-up, bigger the promotion. But, he seems to be softening up in his old age.
Truth, "better reading in the blogs" but leaf fans aren't too far from that nut tree, imo. I'm a huge fan.
