Hyman-Matthews-Marner - That's a first line on just about any team
Komarov-Kadri-Soshnikov - That's a checking 2nd line
JVR-Bozak-Nylander - That's a scoring 2nd line
Leivo-Marleau-Brown - That's a checking 2nd/3rd line

And if we're chasing, it'll quickly collapse to:
Hyman - Matthews - Marner
Marleau - Kadri - Brown
JvR - Bozak - Nylander

Again, I'm not sure why we didn't do this from the beginning of the season (or even last season... to be Fehr, Marleau >>>> Holland, but if he wasn't dragging Martin, Soshnikov/Leivo - Holland - Brown wouldn't have been too shabby).

Martin's played relatively well this season, compared to last, but he's still several steps back of the Kapanen, Soshnikov, Leivo, Leipsic (RIP) group, and they're all on the front of their development curves and collectively cheaper than him.

Stop pretending that you aren't Mark Masters. We know that you're Mark Masters.

That's not possible. He and I have been in the same room at the same time, and people have seen both of us.

Also, I spell my name with a C. Hence, the disagreement.

This already happens though, right?

Yep

If you’re rolling 4 top-6 lines in waves, how often are you chasing?

Going to an OHL game tonight, so I won't be able to watch this one.

Hopefully they get the 2 points. Seems like the Leafs always do better when I don't watch.

Oh well, GO LEAFS GO!

Also, and I'll just say it, I think Martin is better than Leivo.  I'll just say it.  I don't get what the big obsession is with Leivo.  Whoop-de-leivo.

Martin may be missing a gear, but Leivo is missing a tooth.

About time Matt Martin sits.  The guy simply can't skate or stick handle, basic qualifications for an NHL hockey player.

Our supposedly lightning-fast team?  What a joke.  Lack of skating hands CAR another PP.

I've been thinking that lately, most teams look quicker than the Leafs. If it weren't for Andersen...
