The Leafs 4th line at the beginning of the season had Matt Martin and Eric Fehr on it.

That is a solid point! I'm thankful that Komarov and Kapanen have been swapped.

To be fair, Fehr was only there to inflate the cap to maximize LTIR space.

Matt Martin being signed and played regularly over Leivo, Soshnikov, Holland, Kapanen, Johnsson was and remains inexcusable. The addition of Marleau ('s veteran presence and occasional PK flexibility) finally allowed us to bump him out.

Maybe, but that didn't mean he had to play.

Turtleneck confirmed everybody.

I repeat, turtleneck confirmed.

Well, it was blue, but no Leafs logo.

No Namestnikov tonight of course and I doubt Miller and McDonagh arrive in time for the game as they were flying to Vancouver I believe as it happened, so I'd imagine Tampa will go with 11 forwards and 7 defencemen tonight.

PPP is saying Komarov will be on the 4th line meaning Kapi slots in with Willie and Marner plays with Kadri.  YES.

I think not trading Kappi today will turn out to be the best move the Leafs almost didn't make. He just oozes top line potential and that speed...that speed!

Would it violate Lou's rules if he drew a goatee on his face with a Sharpie?

If he were a weather formation he'd be one of these:

What I can't believe is how excited I am by this Leaf team. Kapi on line 1 and my belief in them with Matthews out.  When would we have said we lost Sundin or Sittler and still have been this high on our guys. reel goud pros

I know the Leafs beat Boston without Auston Matthews but I'm worried about Tampa Bay.  Beating Boston required the hockey gods also.  We'll see tonight.  It looks like Lamoriello took the "less is more" approach to the deadline.  I really wanted to see Polak gone but I guess they like him more than Moore.

Go Leafs Go!

JVR had better score a goal per game from here on out.
