At least it's not 4-0. Terrible first period.

I actually thought he played fine. LA had the first 8 shots of the game. He hasn't had much help so far.

Listen, the Leafs were bad defensively on all the goals, atrocious really. But McBackup looked just as bad. Gardiner blows a tire and that sucks, but that's a stoppable shot especially since it wasn't from a goal scorer. The power play goal he didn't have a chance on but that's because he was out of position, and he let a pretty bad rebound out moments before that too which kept the play alive. And the 3rd goal again it looks like he doesn't have a chance with a guy wide open but that's again because he out himself out of position and was playing a really strange angle before the pass was made to the other side.

You know, what this rough patch tells me that now more than ever in a tough parity league you can't afford to have a single roster spot going to somebody who is less talented than an alternative.  While tonight's fiasco is not their fault, even so Martin and Polak be damned.

The second goal was definitely his fault.  I have no idea what he was doing there.  1 and 3?  On Gardiner, although yeah the first was nothing he could do about.

McElhinney has no anticipation to his reads, only reactions. And his reactions are to aggressively get out of position.

Those giveaways by Kadri were something else. Beer league players make better decisions.

So, what's your drift here, sir?  Pickard?

I agree with that.  Not Martin or Polak's fault directly.  Not so much what they did or didn't do, as much as what in general they bring to the team, which on the ice is nothing.

Martin should not be playing.

Polak should never have been signed.

JVR should have been traded in the summer, or exposed in the expansion draft and Leipsic protected in stead.

MacBackup is awful, and should have never been signed.

Carrick sitting is mind boggling. 

Leivo situation is bonkers.

Bozak is another issue, which I didn't think would be one, but he in general sucks this year.
