Too bad the forum was down for one of the more banana-bonkers games we've played recently as well as a trade for yet another former Greyhound!

It was a crazy game for sure. At least they got the non goals right.

I'm a little surprised they bailed on Douglas.

He hasn't been good this season and he didn't impress at all in the pre season so the chances of him playing for the Leafs to took a huge hit.

Great, two skilled aggressive players out for one over the hill guy. Don't get me wrong I love Simmonds but its to late baby.

I'm not going to pretend that Malgin has 30 points but for a guy playing 4th line with a guy who can't do anything offensively (ZAR) and David Kampf I'm not sure how many points they think he should be getting at 5on5.  I don't understand the decision to scratch him, especially for Simmonds.

You want to make the argument about Robertson's defensive game, fine.  I think that's fair game, Malgin doesn't need to watch the game from up high.  The Leafs need to be faster, not slower.

I mean - I get that Minny just traded for Ryan Reaves, so they probably want an "answer" in the lineup...but...enh.

Simmonds isn't an answer for Reaves. Let Robertson/Malgin play. I would put Malgin with JT. Give him a shot. Kerfoot can stay on the 3rd/4th line

Simmonds isnt' an answer for Reaves and the Leafs need to stop playing to their opponents.  We play down to bad teams.  Play up against better teams and wilt in pressure situations.  Letting Ryan Reaves dictate lineup decisions is dumb.

If that's what's happening here...It just maybe getting Simmonds into a game because he's not playing with the Marlies

31 points in 23 games.  .674 PT% (5th in the league)
T-4th fewest goals against (although really should be considered 4th as they have given up 5 3on3 goals.  The offense is lagging behind a bit but with the injuries to the blueline and Matthews not really going off yet I think that will come.

This is really just a solid team.
