Zaitsev for 7 ... any raised eyebrows among us?

I think that's going to change but now is a good time to remind everyone that Kadri led the team with 45 points last year.  Marner has a shot of matching that in assists.

6 players are well past that mark this season. Also, a couple multi-goal games the rest of the way, and Matthews almost reaches it in goals. The offence has done a complete 180.

That'll depend on the dollar figures. I mean, if they can get him for 7 years at ~$4M...

Maybe they hold Rielly's number as the high water mark. *crossing fingers
Until Shattenkirk, I guess.

198 goals for - 246 goals against
231 goals for - 221 goals against

Likely to end with 40+ goals for change and 15 fewer goals against give or take.

It's certainly longer than I thought it'd be but at a reasonable dollar figure and not much movement protection...sure, why not?

Why doesn't he do this more often?

Kapanen was going on the rush... not used to someone on the Leafs having the puck when fights requests happen.

And with so much of it coming from the Rookies now is where it's important to note the distinction between what the Leafs did and what the Oilers did. What happened last year with the Leafs was a strategy.

Unquestionably. And, had they not won the lottery, we may very well have seen the same strategy this season.

That Marner pass to spring Bozak was beautiful.

I know the convention is to call lines based on the center but it seems wrong not to call Bozak-JVR-Marner the Marner line.

FriedgeHNIC: As was reported earlier by @TSNBobMcKenzie, Nikita Zaitsev is closing on seven-year extension with TOR. AAV would be $4.5, from what I hear

That's a solid deal, if that's how it turns out.
