My sense is that Marner could be more than a pretty good PKer. He's looked great the couple of times they put him out.

I think one of the things we see in international tournaments is that a lot of star-level players who don't see usual PK time in the NHL actually are pretty good at it. The question seems to be more about resource allocation and how hard you want to work your star players.

Cheap seats and just over the border. The Go Leafs Go chants will be strong tonight.

Marner is not just a offensive Wizard but a defensive one as well. He steal pucks from people like a pickpocket in Rio.

apparently Leivo is out and Smith is in.

That'll teach him to score.  Babcock's dislike of Leivo is very confusing.  Although this time it appears it is due to injury.

His liking of Smith is equally as confusing.  Smith is below average in all facets of the game except maybe work ethic, which should not be enough to justify a spot in this lineup.

If it had been Martin unable to play I guess Smith going in would have been ok but as is that 4th line is just going to be a black hole offensively.

Perhaps he's privy to inside information considering he's head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Great start, great goalies.

Good thing we got rid of that bum Corrado to get this quality defender in Marchenko.
