Vegas is pretty good team-speed-wise, and working in transition with short passes.

My god, the turnovers in front of our own net.  Andersen should cold-cock the rest of the team.

Ongoing crap all season. I don't care we have a winning record make some changes. I have no clue what management sees. Are they happy with this lot? Has Lou not been able to upgrade this team? I don't get it.
Shut up

Happy New Year to you as well enjoy the rest of the game.
No offense but you're a broken record. You want more guys like Polak on D that take the body. I get it. Happy new year.

No I don't want more guys like Polak I want some guys that can play D and aren't a detriment every time they are on the ice.

It's actually 3 games in 3 1/2 days.
Good point, that actually makes me feel better about what I'm watching.

And I'm a broken record because it's status quo with this team. Keep plugging away hopefully outscore the other team in a shootout or Andersen steals one. Good strategy.

That was... unpleasant.

The Leafs are also 9th or 10th overall in the league but listening to you one would think they're a bottom 5 team from lack of talent. Every team has issues, you can't magically upgrade your defense just cause you want them to do so. Today's game is schedule related, Leafs are playing their 3rd game in LESS than 4 days, no time to practice, traveling from city to city while Vegas has been home since Friday, oh and their previous 2 games were those long Anaheim and LA trips, basically in Vegas's backyard.

Pretty easy to see why Babcock isn't much of a Marincin fan. He has flashes of goodness but there are way too many times where he demonstrates why he can't be relied upon as a full-time NHL defenceman.

Any ETA on Zaitsev's return?

Broken record or not, azzurri's right, but I think the frustration goes back to what Babcock was saying today about expectations.  They are higher, lots higher, but they are higher because of the offensive talent.  The defense isn't good enough to justify the expectations, and they bear the brunt of it when things go wrong.

Andersen btw was pretty spectacular that period except for goal 3.

Lou should have let the boys loose on the Strip last night judging by the effort so far!  :P

Andersen should just change into his street clothes and leave the dressing room!  That would send a message!

Brutal period but could have gone differently. Hyman hits the post a minute in, then a non call on a blatant trip of Hyman and that leads to the 2nd Vegas goal. Not saying it wasnt a bad period but Leafs caught no breaks at all.

I don't just look at points, standings etc I look at how the team plays and wins. Sure it's great I get it we are 10th overall whatever and yes every team has it's issues but have you honestly been happy with the way this teams played. Hell if it wasn't for Andersen we would be in the bottom half of the standings. Thank God our division sucks and some of the teams have struggled ie Mtl, Florida otherwise we would be fighting for a wild card. I've been a diehard for this team for over 40 years. There is no one out there that would love to see this team win a cup than myself believe me and yes I'm passionate.
