One thing worth watching here is how Brodie performs back on the left side. I've been thinking for a little bit now that some parts of his struggles could possibly be attributed to playing on the right. Playing his off side used to be his bread and butter but that's a lot tougher to do once your skating takes a dip like it has for him.

They seem to be resisting the McCabe-Brodie pairing
They did really well after the trade - apparently they had great stats ... near the top of the league
then the playoffs and into the toilet ...

Brodie may have the best stick of any Leafs dman I ever saw play.
He made me appreciate that skill more than I ever did previously.

Hopefully, they can figure out pairings to get them through this suspension.

I still have a little hope that Lagesson might be able to help ...

Forwards definitely have to be on their best defensive behavior

Rielly is 1 point behind Tim Horton for 3rd all time among Leafs dmen scoring ...

I've spent more time than I'd like to admit this past week wondering if a bottom-6 forward group made entirely out of players who cleared waivers this season would be an improvement over the bottom-6 forward group we've used for the past 3 games. Toninato was a guy I would have probably had on my "all-waivers" team and he just cleared it for the 3rd time this season.

I guess my point is I'm surprised the team seems perfectly content with some of the players playing there despite their abysmal on-ice results almost all season.

From other reports, Giordano seems more iffy than Kampf

Don't try this with the players we lost on waivers or traded because they had no role here the past three years because it's very sad.

I actually had one done specifically with former Leafs who cleared waivers just this season on other teams:

Zohorna-Boyd-Anderson
ZAR-Toninato-NAK

Zohorna is the weak spot there of course but honestly aside from that it's really not half bad. Got lucky with Boyd being on waivers for some reason at the start of the season. I'd definitely take ZAR back right now. And in hindsight we probably gave up on Aube-Kubel a little too quickly last season. He seemed to fit in well with the Caps and basically became everything we hoped he'd be after a rough start here.

Horrible break for Timmins here, who would have likely had a great shot of playing some minutes and maybe even PP1 time while Rielly was out.

Dude just can't catch a break.

To bad, he has shown flashes of some real talent at times.

I don't think I know anyone who's ever had mono but lots of hockey players seem to catch it. Watch out who you're kissing out there boys :P

I know there's nothing scientific here, but can you point to many players that have really developed well under Keefe, other than the superstar talents?
