Johnsson has his 4th and 5th to tie it at 2 after 2.

Marlies score 3 goals in 33 seconds in the final 2 minutes of the game to win 5-3.

Dotchin, Breaker of Leafs, has been suspended 3 games for his late hit.

I like how the Marlies/Leafs responded to this situation.
I seriously hope the Marlies/Leafs take some proactive steps towards Dotchin next time we face him.

I actually wouldn't mind off the ice even.  Does anyone know where he spends his summers?

They have been pretty impressive in the last two games.  Kudo's to Kapenan, Johnson, Kaskisuo and Grunstrom who looks like the eventual replacement for Komrade Komarov.

I would even go a step further to project Kaskisuo as the back up to Freddie next year or at least the year after.

I think Kaskisuo has played himself into the Marlies starter role. Backup for Andersen doesn't play enough. Give that to a cheap UFA signing and try to trade one of Bibeau or Sparks.

Kasimir had an .899 SV% in the ECHL this year.  He had a .902 SV% in the AHL with the Marlies.  I'm not sure that his .902 SV% in the postseason is much of an indication of a future NHLer at this point.

Is this just Internet tough guy talk? Or are you guys advocating premeditated assault?

I'm advocating that Lou stand out by his curb and glare at the house at random times.

I'm absolutely not, but at this point isn't that exactly what Dotchin's "play" amounts to?

I understand what you're saying; I would consider that a false equivalency though. Dotchin's a big body with good mobility, trained to play a game that encourages him to use his body to separate other players from the puck. His actions, though they have had some injurious results, have largely been within the confines of the game or within that error bar that questionable plays tend to fall under. He's encouraged to be greasy, but I don't really see him headhunting, or aiming for knee shots, or slewing feet. I don't like him or the way he plays, but that's what's encouraged in this sport that is inherently unsafe.

Advocating retaliation for past transgressions by way of threat of injury is a different matter in my books. I do get that others might not see it that way.
