I have nothing against Ranger but it seems to me that if you are going to carry an extra guy, it should be someone who provides a unique skill to the lineup.  I'm not sure that Ranger provides that.

I've always thought of him as one of our better penalty killing defencemen. At the very least his presence means Garinder/Rielly/Franson don't need to be relied upon there.

Showcasing him ahead of the Wednesday trade?

Doug MacLean wondering why Reimer is starting.

Or, much more likely, getting him some work so that he's game ready for when he's needed during the stretch run.

Skating into the zone by himself I'm more or less equating the chance of an offensive opportunity being generated as I would if it were Orr.

Unless the Cap is the reason, with Orr injured and FML on waivers, this is the ideal time to try a 4th line that could actually contribute.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Let me needlessly hit this guy when Gleason already has him and free up this other man for a potential 2 on 1.

I think that Bodie has made McLaren disposable. He has had good hockey instincts and GREAT skating ability.  That is what I was hoping we'd see this year from McLaren.

Too bad.

There was some nice passing by the 2nd PP unit, but I don't think there was ever a Leafs player within 5 feet infront of Bobrovsky.

It's an unfair comparison I know but it is pretty hard to look past how much poorer the quality of play is in a game like this than it was in the Olympics.

Clarkson is really bad.

Normally with mediocre-to-bad players I just don't care about them (Jonas Hoglund was an example).  I actually overtly dislike Clarkson.
