I think the league should let the Leafs dress 9 defensemen so long as we promise that none of them are very good.

Seeing how he's played this year, it's probably wise not to start him against the Leafs.

This could be a circus for us, what with 90% of the roster being turned over.

I know he's been terrible, but man, how often do you see a goalie leave a team and then NOT start the first time he plays his old team?  Who knows if he plays well maybe it's a jumpstart for him for the rest of the season?  I think his problem is mostly between his ears.  When he's confident he plays well. Right now he has no confidence.

If you're hanging onto a wild card spot I'm guessing you're not going make any lineup decisions for sentimental reasons.

Other than McCabe and Lafferty entering the lineup for Sandin and Engvall, isn't this going to be the same roster that played on Sunday?  I guess Liljegren/Nylander could be thrown off a bit losing their fellow Swedes.

I certainly wouldn't rule out Campbell starting, Oilers don't announce their goalie until day of. Neither goalie is posting great numbers recently, although Campbell looks like he's getting better goals support and therefore has a better record. Since January 1st they are:

Campbell 9-1-3 with a .894 Sv% and 3.02 GAA
Skinner  3-4-3 with a .897 Sv% and 3.21 GAA

Campbell had an 8-game winning streak snapped a few weeks ago and has lost 4 straight since then (first 3 in OT/SO, last one he was pulled after giving up 4 goals on 14 shots against Columbus).

Ok.... Let's see what we got here now. It's always fun when new players join the mix .

This might be a bit overblown. There are no core changes. Everyone coming in has moved around quite a bit before and knows the drill. The top two lines that drive this ship only picked up Ryan O'Reilly, who has already demonstrated he not only fits in, but elevates the group.

If anything, it gives Tampa and Boston more work to scout for weaknesses (Sandin and Engvall already shed).

Looking forward to seeing the new arrivals (and hopefully not Ekholm).

GO LEAFS GO!
Can't be cheering for Connor Brown no more.
