2017/18 Leafs Game Day Threads / Re: Flames @ Leafs - Dec 6, 7:30pm - SN
« on: December 07, 2017, 05:25:11 PM »
i know the popular thing seems to think the leafs slow starts are due to a lack of preparation but I tend to think of it more like they adapt to teams.  The fact that they score a lot of third period goals seems to be a sign of that.  In either case they seem to outlast a lot of teams.  I also don't like how many nights they get outshot but to say this is the kessel team i think is a mistake.  even from the eye test that team had little ability to close out a game.  Last year this team seemed to drop a lot of games when the other team came back on them but they seemed to get passed that.  It's now to the point where it's frustrating to watch the leafs squander a lead but I no longer think that means they'll actually lose the game.  They've got work to do but I think just like last year they'll get better as the season goes on..of course so will a lot of other teams.

If it's okay for cherry to go back and show videos showing every time he was right with a claim then i think it's also okay for people to point out every time he was wrong.

russiagate or whatever we're calling it these days seems to be reaching some kind of tipping point. If he keeps doing stuff like firing the people investigating the issue then I think it ironically only brings that time closer.

I think bernier proved this year what we already kind of knew already.  Mostly that he's fine if he's not the number 1 guy in your organization.  But if you need the guy to play a lot of minutes and be the go to guy he seems to stumble.  I don't believe this year has proved otherwise. 

Also as 'easy' as it is to go out and get someone of Freddie's calibre the leafs have done a fairly awful job of it for the last decade and some other teams in need of a steady hand have similarly failed to find these dime a dozen guys.  so I don't know.  I'll wait to see if he can continue to perform at this level or better next season but I feel like going out and getting Freddie was a good thing. 

I don't know how much making the playoffs effects the players but I have seen past leaf teams seem to have more trouble as the games became more important.  Whether that's due to nerves or the other teams just preparing better as the standings become more important.  I don't know.  I find it hard to believe however that overcoming that period of frayed nerves and tighter competition would be in any way bad for a team. 

I don't know how good this team is  I guess none of us do.  If you're in the camp that feels that this year was a confluence of good things coming together for the leafs at the right time and that next year they could be a bubble team again or maybe even regress a little then you'd look at this as a bit of a waste in regards prospects and such.  If you're in the camp that this team might be really really good all ready and this year was them learning how to play with pretty much an upward trajectory from the start of the season to the end then I guess you see this as opening up the possibility of being able to compete for a cup before you really have to pay this core some money. 

I want to believe it's the latter.  Time will tell.

don't even have to watch this game..babcock already said they're going to win it might as well take the time to meditate and prepare yourself for tuesday

to win the series they probably have to win tonight...that'll give them two games to figure out how to eliminate a team.

a loss would be logical but I don't know.  I think the leafs are trending in the right direction. 

Washington never should have let us back in this game.  Their advantages over us are in net and on D.  I'm starting to like our chances.  but even if the leafs don't end up winning this one can say it was a cakewalk


Getting Zaitsev back would be a big boost but I hope for his sake and ours, assuming he was concussed, that he's not trying to rush back. If he's still going to sign for 7 years I'd rather have him take it easy and return 100%.

Perhaps it has all been lip service but Babcock has gone out of his way on multiple occasions to say injury stuff is out of his hands completely.  They've definitely been projecting a kind of separation from church and state on this issue. 


i feel so bad for that kid ..there's no way that goes over well at school

i'm amazed by this team so far.  We do not look like the 8th seed playing the first.  Tonight's game could have went either way but only because these teams have looked so even so far.  at one point in OT they showed the shots..50/50 it seemed appropriate.
