I would have dressed 7 dmen tonight since Gardiner hasn't looked himself and play a bit of Rosen.  Take Goat out, no need for a 4th line center, mix in the 4th line wingers with some shifts with the other 3 centers.

Will the PP score a gaol?

Will the PK prevent a goal?

Will Babcock change up his lines or will he overplay the GudPros™?

Stay tuned.

On Monday Babcock was asked if he’ll consider taking a different approach to his game plan in Game 7.

“No. One hundred per cent the opposite of that piece of advice,” he said.


One of the stupiest quotes I have ever read.

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/nhl/dave-feschuk-stubborn-babcock-passes-on-change-with-leafs-special-teams-falling-short/ar-BBWbS9V?li=AAggNb9 (https://www.msn.com/en-ca/sports/nhl/dave-feschuk-stubborn-babcock-passes-on-change-with-leafs-special-teams-falling-short/ar-BBWbS9V?li=AAggNb9)

This article infurates me.

And as for the penalty kill, according to NHL.com, going back to 1985-86 there’ve been 424 teams whose playoff runs lasted at least six games. Toronto’s 2019 penalty-kill percentage, an embarrassing 56 per cent, ranks 423rd out of 424. The Leafs’ 2018 penalty kill ranks 421st. Their 2017 work ranks 407th. Those numbers are Babcock’s numbers.

THREE YEARS IN A ROW!!!! Jesus, adapt you idiot! If Hyman takes a defensive zone PK faceoff, Bab's should be fired mid-game. No one can dispute these facts if Babcock can't make an adjustment after 3 playoffs to the PK he has to go.

I wonder what he means by that exactly and how much we should actually extrapolate from that singular quote. I don't think he won't make adjustments, but the adjustments he does make remain to be seen. He definitely should dial back Marleau and get Willy on a shift with Matthews at some point and basically have Goat and fourth line play as little as possible. Try to load up on your best guys without gassing them.

If he does the same old with Hyman losing every draw on the PK and Marleau getting 17 minutes then I'm going to pull out my hair.

If the PK can't get it done tonight the assistants have got to go. DJ Smith I believe is in charge of the PK.

The specific question that he responded to was "is it the time for Leafs to start taking risks and doing different things than what got them to a Game 7 situation". No coach in the world is going to say yes to that. And when he gave his response he did say it with a smile/laugh on his face. So I know this is a massive shock to anyone who knows the columnist who wrote that but I'd say he took it out of context a bit.

I'm not saying he's doing a good job or defending him, I just don't think it makes sense to fire the coach as a first resort.

They were going to tear him apart on that quote regardless. If anything goes wrong tonight they'll say he didn't adjust and if he does adjust and it doesn't work out they're going to say he either didn't try that early enough or what he tried was too costly or reckless. It's no win unless he moves on, and if he moves on then he shuts everyone up.

I don't trust the media or most of the fanbase to be able to recognize an adjustment one way or another. The team has been built on process-driven recognition of probabilities in the game of hockey, and Babcock's responses are part of that process. We got away from our game in our losses instead of staying patient. Some bad bounces happened on top of that. I'd make the same response as a coach.

Amongst the worst PK in a grouping of all teams over the past 33 years for 3 years in a row. He had his opportunity to address the problem and didn't, it's on him now.

I'll be there at the start. If the Leafs don't show up though I'm gonna bail. If they get a 3 goal lead I'm gonna bail. Otherwise I'll probably be there till the end.

If I could only put myself in a time machine and go forward to midnight tonight then I'll just check the score.  With my luck it'll be in double OT when I check and I'll freak out.

I would have dressed 7 dmen tonight since Gardiner hasn't looked himself and play a bit of Rosen.  Take Goat out, no need for a 4th line center, mix in the 4th line wingers with some shifts with the other 3 centers.
Yes!! Matthews and JT should play 24-25 minutes tonight. Put Willy with Matthews and JT for a few shifts and please put Marleau on the 4th line.

I wonder what he means by that exactly and how much we should actually extrapolate from that singular quote.

The specific question that he responded to was "is it the time for Leafs to start taking risks and doing different things than what got them to a Game 7 situation". No coach in the world is going to say yes to that. And when he gave his response he did say it with a smile/laugh on his face. So I know this is a massive shock to anyone who knows the columnist who wrote that but I'd say he took it out of context a bit.

Exactly!

This is a game where I really wish we had Kadri available and could just roll three centers most of the night and actually be a threat to score with all three lines. Willy is doing a good job but with Brown and Marleau on his flanks it's not a line that's going to put up many points. Ennis or Moore might make it a bit more of a threat -- at both ends of the ice. He's a great player on a good contract but he does SFA for us watching from the press box. It's disappointing since I felt like it was the 3rd line depth more than anything that had the potential to be the difference-maker in this series. Now I feel like we are going to need either a bit of luck from the puck gods or some glaring blunder from the Bruins in order to prevail.

I really hope like crazy that I'm wrong. Go Leafs go!

On Monday Babcock was asked if he’ll consider taking a different approach to his game plan in Game 7.

“No. One hundred per cent the opposite of that piece of advice,” he said.


One of the stupiest quotes I have ever read.

This article infurates me.

And as for the penalty kill, according to NHL.com, going back to 1985-86 there’ve been 424 teams whose playoff runs lasted at least six games. Toronto’s 2019 penalty-kill percentage, an embarrassing 56 per cent, ranks 423rd out of 424. The Leafs’ 2018 penalty kill ranks 421st. Their 2017 work ranks 407th. Those numbers are Babcock’s numbers.

THREE YEARS IN A ROW!!!! Jesus, adapt you idiot! If Hyman takes a defensive zone PK faceoff, Bab's should be fired mid-game. No one can dispute these facts if Babcock can't make an adjustment after 3 playoffs to the PK he has to go.

I get the feeling he was reluctant to get into much physical stuff after the shoulder injury this season. He started the season like a bull in a china shop but seemed almost timid after the injury. He finally seems to be back to trusting his body to take some punishment again.

Where to begin.... Marleau is useless and should probably pack it in. Willy is a baby, he sucks and he should have sat all year. Trade him in the offseason and free up money for Mitch, Kappy and Johnsson. Gardiner should sign with the Bruins, how many Bruin GA has he primary assisted?

I was talking to my crewmate this morning saying that the Leafs were done after game 6. The only thing on their mind is how they should have won that game and that none of them wanted to be in Boston playing game 7.

It heavily influenced my decision to switch back to night shift as I was pretty sure there wouldn't be a second round worth watching.

Looks like I made the right call.

I agree that he probably shouldn’t be in the line up but I haven’t seen many poor decisions. That drop was brutal, obviously, but no one was giving him a target.

It would be nice if Andersen didn’t look so jittery. That first goal was a huge momentum killer. Andersen has let in a bunch of stinkers this series (notwithstanding the fact that he’s made some good saves). Can’t really say the same for Rask.

The Leafs should play Nylander with Ennis and Moore for the 3rd period.  And not play Marleau Brown and the Goat who have not generated any offence for the playoffs (if not the last 3 months...).   But it would require coaching shrewdness by Babs which has been woefully lacking.

Absolutely. The big 3 had better be on all 3rd.  If Babcock continues to play the 3rd line as is (4th is outplaying 3rd or actually Ennis and Moore are) and he doesn't roll top 2 lines with the odd 3rd with Willy/Moore/Ennis it's something Dubas needs to address..

Got to tell you the truth, we have 2-3 defensive weakness's real liabilities, they have next to none, if our O can keep up the pressure we can win this.

But we need some D coming up to be a real contender, look at Columbus.  If we are in a 5 year rebuild, aren't we in 3-4?  We need some good D and they are coming. We have our offensive core set for the next 6 years once we sign Mitch.  With D, watch out.

The takeaway so far is that the Leafs could have folded, could have let that 3rd goal in and then it's pretty much game over.  I see some more resiliency in the team now.  The D has probably had one of its worst games in the series (Dermott, Zaitsev, Gardiner in the 1st) but credit to Gardiner, he was good in the 2nd.  Muzzin and Rielly have been great.

I am going to remain positive.  This is a great opportunity for the Leafs.  Grab it!

But you can't blame Babcock for the fact that Tyler Ennis was your best player in a Game 7 elimination.  Or that Rask easily bettered Andersen.

Tavares bounced back, I thought.  Marner ... all I can say is that he'd better reveal he's been playing on a broken foot or something since blocking those shots.

If Babcock returns next season the leafs have zero chance of advancing in the playoffs.  He is the real problem.  Matthews hates him.

The first 2 periods the Leafs played great.

That 3rd goal really seemed to deflate them. Also you know in the last 10 minutes Boston would be allowed to interfere and hook like crazy.

Babcock needs to go for playing Marleau and Brown as much as he did. Completely neutered the Leafs scoring depth.

But you can't blame Babcock for the fact that Tyler Ennis was your best player in a Game 7 elimination.  Or that Rask easily bettered Andersen.

Tavares bounced back, I thought.  Marner ... all I can say is that he'd better reveal he's been playing on a broken foot or something since blocking those shots.

He hasn’t been the same since that game we won where he blocked those shots at the end of the third. I’ve been wondering if he has some hairline fracture or something.

Looking forward to Herman’s explanation of how Babcock was limiting Matthews’ minutes during the season so that he could play more in the playoffs. Not trying to single Herman out because I almost bought that explanation. But the last couple of games were terribly coached and managed.

Babcock made roughly zero adjustments throughout the series.

Yeah. Bench management is something Babcock needs to fix if he’s going to have playoff success again. Down one going I to the third, top two lines should have been given a lot more time. Special teams are definitely an issue right now - especially the PK and the second PP unit. Need to somehow move Marleau this summer. He’s done.

What you can blame him though for is not making the adjustments. He played Willy with the 4th line guys what one time?
Marner had a horrible series as did the rest of the JT line. Only threat we had was Matthews who was easily our best forward.

Well, that’s that.
Herman, you are probably the most gifted poster on this site, and Nik seem absent.  I never bought into the Leafs going far this year, we were sold on a 5 year plan and it's not 5 years as yet.  We need three defensemen who can handle the pressure (Sandin seems one), we have the O no doubt, once we have the D we will win.  But with this D in its present form, we would have been swept by Columbus as will the Bruins, perhaps the B's can take it to 5.  Can't take much comfort on this.  Next year Boys, next year!

Also I am a Bab's supporter, think he gets one more year, but thats it. I think in 21 you have Keefe and Dubas laying out the fact that Moore and Ennis should have played this game with Willie, that Babs just couldn't disrespect Marleau to his detriment and ours. That Hyman should not be taking so many PK faceoffs etc.

Two days ago my best friend broke his neck biking in Arizona, he is 67 and thank God he is not paralyzed. It gives this loss some perspective, he has a long road back to normal.

Panel just said Matthews only played 4 minutes in the first 14 of the 3rd and Babs only played him a lot when the game was pretty much over. And Cherry was right about Rielly's stick on the 3rd goal. Get your f'n stuck out if the way.

Today, Babs is not a good coach. He’s so entitled and blames his players and is incapable of changing. His coaching regressed as the series went on. He went backwards and rolled 4 lines and didn’t play his best as series went on.

Not talking about the regular season, talking about the playoffs. Thought they looked better than Boston most of the series but
were done in by special teams and Kadri's stupidity (and Babcock's stubbornness). They showed the ability to play good team defense at times in this series.

Need to shed the Marleau contract and strengthen the defense. We'll see what Dubas is able to do.

I promise you that's all they were thinking about tonight. Now they know what they have to do, and they've felt the result of not doing it.

If you believe in the core of this team and what they hope to accomplish with it, then there is value in this loss. I know it's hard to see right now but the Leafs improved this year in a number of ways. This is not the end guys. Not even close.

Marner had one great playoff game, we needed 7 or even better 4 or 5 games. Nylander had one period and had no support (Ennis and Moore could have helped), Kadri (needs to go, anyone who can't keep his head on two years in a row is a huge liability), Goodby Jake (I loved Good Jake, tried to forgive Bad Jake) thanks for the memories, we need to keep Muzin past next year to mentor the new young Leaf D.  Reilly stunk tonight as did Dermott, hoping for better playoff days from both of them.  Zaitzev can go with Jake.
I want at least 3 new D on this team next year. Sandin is ready.  So is Rosen.  Hopefully Lilipad can play some right D. Surprisingly I would sign Hainsey to a 1 year deal and play him a lot less.  He did try his guts out tonight, I will give him credit for that. Anderson is a great Goalie, getting better, a bad bit of Bruin luck on that first Goal but this wasn't our year. We all have to be honest here, it was a bit of topsy turvy kind of year!.

Good post Highlander. It was a bit of a weird year for sure. I think we're going to be surprised with some of the guys that leave. I think they will resign Hainsey on the cheap. I had no complaints about him in this years playoffs. We also have to expose someone for the expansion draft.

We'll never know, but I'm not prepared for a 3-peat. Nylander... meh... Money has to move in the near future and I'm okay if he's part of that money (Marleau and Zaitsev too, please).

Well, the silver lining is that Mitch is no longer in the running for an $11M contract.
I would agree that the differences between he and Matthews were apparent in this series.  I smell a hold out, though.

Kadri, Gardiner, Nylander and Babcock.
Ship them out.
You maybe surprised who goes in the off season. It won't be Kadri or Nylander unless it's a pure salary dump.

I'm extremely dissapointed but it usually goes away pretty fast.  One thing that really sucks is that Tampa the powerhouse is out, and I came downstairs and saw CBC showing the brackets and there is not 1 team that scares me at all other than Boston.

About the actual game, I missed lots with some kids stuff, but they started off very well, and those 2 goals, just seemed preventable.  I can't fathom Gardiner wanting redemption for a whole year then making that giveaway.  Rask shut the door at 2-1 on.

I think part of the problem is that this team relies on the speed and skill game all year long and the come playoff time, they find themselves doing a lot more bumping and grinding. Hence, they seem to wear down as the series progresses and the speed game we saw in game 1, couldn't be duplicated.  They were fresh to start series (4 days off from end of season to start). And the grind of every second night playing playoff style hockey seems to really take their legs away.  Boston is perhaps a little more used to the grinding playoff style of hockey and seems to deal with it better.  I remember having similar thoughts at last two years 1st round exits.

And then he can come back and be Nylander. I've said this all year. Marner is an exceptional player, but he played with Tavares this season. He doesn't get to 94 points if JT isn't on the team and I don't think it's close. He is not as good as Matthews no matter what Paul Marner thinks. I think that line needs an upgrade from Hyman to so they can reach their full potential. I expect the Leafs to trade him and Brown. You can't pay a "checker" over 2 million. There are cheaper options.

I don’t want to harp on the let’s fire Babcock side of things but in a Game 7 Elimination Game that we lost 4-1 our top player played 18:48.  That’s just unacceptable when we just lost our 3rd straight 7 game series.   

You just can’t roll four lines when you are down.  Especially when as much as the 4th brings energy they are incapable of putting the puck in the net.  Marleau playing more than 10 minutes was bad.  He was old and slow.  For all the flak they Nylander got by the talking heads I genuinely felt Marleau was our worst forward.   Every play died on his stick.  Nylander made mistakes but tried to create stuff.  Marleau did nothing all series.

I’m not sure if changing the assistants is enough is Babcock is going to put out bad lines.   I’m also concerned that we don’t hold on to Keefe.  I wonder if he gets brought up as an assistant?

I think there maybe another meeting in Arizona real soon. Here's a stat from the 3rd period.
Matthews played a whopping 5 minutes EV in the 3rd. Add in 1:16 of pp and he played a whole 6:16 mins. Hyman by contrast played 7 minutes. That is totally unacceptable to have your best scoring threat on the bench. He should have played 10 freaking minutes. It's do or die.
Just heard that Zeisberger asked Babs why, when he pulled Freddie with 3 minutes left, was Marleau on the ice considering how bad he struggled in the series.

I am not on the tar-and-feather squad for Babcock, but someone needs to knock some self-entitlement out of him, because he's got some real flaws in how he manages this team.

Yeah. I don’t think he needs to go just yet, but he needs to be put on notice. Fire his assistants, takeaway some of his favourite toys (aka vets who are no longer useful in the role they’re being given), bring in some fresh ideas, and see how next year goes. No need for rash, drastic moves, just some smart changes.

The only way Babcock could ever be fired this offseason is if Matthews blew up at him.
Which would be very bad all the way round.

I agree with your comments.  Very level-headed.

It'll definitely take more than one trip to Arizona this season, I suspect...

Yeah, I really doubt he gets fired this season, but it's really hard to imagine they're coming back with whoever runs that PP (DJ Smith?). Time for Dubas to start layering in his guys. If it goes poorly, his own head coach.

Every time this happens the core learns something.

One thing that happened to the Leafs this year that didn't happen last year or the year before, is they had a chance to close out the series and didn't finish them off. I promise you that's all they were thinking about tonight. Now they know what they have to do, and they've felt the result of not doing it.

If you believe in the core of this team and what they hope to accomplish with it, then there is value in this loss. I know it's hard to see right now but the Leafs improved this year in a number of ways. This is not the end guys. Not even close.

Sure.

The problem is the coach doesn't seen to learn anything.

Also, while I don't think Rosen would have been a difference maker (Gardiner played OK most of the series), it didn't help that Gardiner has obviously hurt.

Gardiner was ok but the guy was skating around straight A’s a board.  That he played as well as he did was a testament to how good he actually is as a player but he was really limited in his mobility

Agree with all of this what really burns is that most our best forwards have 5-10 years of age on theirs.  To just roll them 18 min and let Boston match is so bad I don't think I'll ever get over it from Babcock.  Bruins are laughing at just how easy this game was.

We won't know if Rosen is better until next year at the earliest. Gardiner was def hurt and his mobility was limited, but that shouldn't affect his brain. That second goal giveaway was classic Gardiner and that's why he need to go. Simply can't pay 6 or 7 mill for that..

Agree. While I wanted more from Willy, I really didn't expect it this season. It's been a total waste for him. You simply can't miss that much time and be any good and it showed. There's no way you trade him unless it's total salary dump and that would be a mistake. You'll see guys like Hyman and Brown shipped out before that. I think the Leafs will be talking to Marleau about load management next year and he should be put on the 4th line. I'll be shocked if he's traded or off to Robidas Island..

Babs folded at that question. Babs relied on the wrong guy way to long and he never showed up. That’s on Babs and he knows it but he doesn’t take ownership for anything. His gud pros didn’t save him and his best didn’t get enough ice time to make up the difference.

If we had Kadri, this series doesn't go 7. The plan was to have a line match the Bergeron line and kill them with the other 2. We couldn't do that once Dumbass got suspended. He might well be the most hated guy in the room after that move and if so, he'll need to be moved.

Kadri is gone! he is a liability to the team. Once forgivable, twice just idiotic and who needs an idiot on their team?......wait Edmonton!!!!

Trading Naz is ridiculous. He's got the best value contract on the team aside from Rielly.

Well yeah, it's discounted because he doesn't play in the playoffs ;)

What Kadri has done is the epitome of the selfish crap that Babcock, Dubas, and Shanahan say is unacceptable.

I like him and his contract.  Moving him is a result of his selfishness and the fact that we would get full value on him.

Also, while I don't think Rosen would have been a difference maker (Gardiner played OK most of the series), it didn't help that Gardiner has obviously hurt.

Gardiner was ok but the guy was skating around straight A’s a board.  That he played as well as he did was a testament to how good he actually is as a player but he was really limited in his mobility
We won't know if Rosen is better until next year at the earliest. Gardiner was def hurt and his mobility was limited, but that shouldn't affect his brain. That second goal giveaway was classic Gardiner and that's why he need to go. Simply can't pay 6 or 7 mill for that..
Agreed and said it before Gardiner is a playoff disaster, that turn over was something a 6 year old in bantam would do.  By Jake and thanks for saving us 6 million.

You don't trade Naz. The whole point is having 3 good centres on this team. Reunite Matthews with Nylander. Stick Kappy and Moore with Naz and you will see the poyential.

If I'm Dubas I give Babcock one more year. His coaching seems fine but his lineup choices are baffling. Take away his favourites. I pray to God Marleau is done and there is some agreement there. Get rid of Brown, Zaitsev, Hainsey, Goat.

On paper, this is one of the best teams I've seen in my lifetime.  However, as proven time in and time out, what is good on paper is absolutely irrelevant in the playoffs.

I'm at a loss for words as to why we are done.  On the ice, our top players didn't play that badly overall in the series.  Matthews showed up, Rielly was good.
Andersen played well enough for us to win this in 6 games.  We didn't lose this series because of the usual scapegoats (i.e. Hainsey/Zaitsev/Marleau/Goat etc.).  We also didn't lose because Bergeron, Marchand and Pasternak scored a boat load of goals between them, which is what I would have expected in a 7 game series loss - Tavares/Marner/Hyman kept them mostly in check.  We didn't lose because we were out muscled or out hustled.   We won 2 (TWO!!!) games on their turf, so home ice was mostly irrelevant.   Our defensive system was brutal at times, but in my opinion was not reason number 1 why we lost.

I just don't understand what i just saw over the last 7 games and conclude definitely on how or why our season ended.  We should still be playing.  I don't know what just happened.

Yep...what use is that great value contract if the player is unavailable for the most important part of the year because of his inability to control his emotions. Plus, he seemed off all year, maybe because of his reduced role with the arrival of Tavares.

New era Leafs, same old results.

Not quite, as many have outlined, butthe Leafs absolutely need to make some changes, both on the defensive & offensive front.

According to HNIC’s Ron McLean, he made a passing mention of Marner, Tavares, and Hyman playing hurt.  That precisely illustrates why changes, adjustments need to be done in order so that the team is more well-balanced to give out the support necessary in all departments.

Kadri’s suspension to some sounded like dejā vu and the fact that he became a non-factor for the team also emphasizes how his absence may have impeded the Leafs taking the series.  Kadri and Nylander had good symmetry on that line in Game 1.  One can only stipulate the what if, what if he hadn’t been suspended, would it have changed anything and on what scale?

This whole series was over after the Game 6 loss.  The Leafs should have won that one.  They failed to grasp opportunity.  Not just the team per se but the coaching staff.

That look of Shanahan’s in the dying minutes of the game could be read by a mile.

Back to the drawing board.

Sure, but I cite the second suspension in successive playoff years as the case to get rid of him.  His teammates, you would expect, are justifiably pissed off.

I have no idea what his teammates feel. But I've a strong suspicion that Matthews cares a lot more about how me he was playing than about how much a guy who hasn't been on the bench for almost 2 weeks was.

Hyman averaged several more minutes per game this series than Nylander. All things being equal, that is pretty nuts. Kadri's absence does not explain Babcock's inability to adjust his approach.

We need a coach capable of assigning ice-time and roles relative to the skill and ability of the players. The "I play veterans I like regardless of their ability" approach to line-up management should no longer cut it.

Given the Leafs' on-paper talent, nobody should be satisfied with historically subpar special teams, inexplicable line-ups and antiquated offensive systems. They were built to win this year and massively underperformed. Heads should roll.

I agree they didn't lose because of the scapegoats -- none did anything to so negatively impact the team that they caused the Leafs to lose the series -- but they didn't do anything to help the team win. I saw a series where the Leafs no depth scoring and had nothing on special teams. Hard to see winning a playoff round without that.

My definition of success this season was winning a playoff round.  We really should have taken that step.  The fact that we didn't get blown out/collapse in any game this series is a slight consolation.  The fact that Matthews proved he can bring it in the playoffs is cause for real optimism.  But the fact that we could have won the series at home and came up with a less than 100% effort is unforgivable.  He needs to be willing to re-invent himself in certain areas.

I said somewhere else that Babcock doesn't get the last 10% out of the team.  That's obviously just a loose metaphor, but tonight's game -- again! -- shows you cannot give yourself less than a 100% chance to win in the playoffs.  As soon as they went down 3-1 in the 3rd it should have been Marner + Matthews + Nylander + Tavares in some combo for 2/3ds of the remaining ice time.  What we got instead was Matthews ending up with 6 minutes.  It should have been closer to 9, maybe even 10.

The Stanley Cup is the hardest championship to win in pro sports by a country mile. Babcock is one of the few who's won it, so the idea that he's a terrible coach is just ludicrous.  But I hope he takes a hard look in the mirror this off-season because he needs to take responsibility for the things Grieves just pointed out: no adjustments to make up for the loss of Kadri and no adjustments for the lapses on the PK and the continuing momentum-killing PPs.

Ozhiganov
Hainsey
Marincin

I hope we’ve seen the last of all of these. I’d potentially give Babcock one more year with new assistant coaches, although ideally I’d like Keefe to get a look first. He would be best placed to plug guys from the Marlies into the big team ala Cooper in Tampa.

My guess would be the lack of a couple of good mobile but solid defensive defensemen. Because of our insufficient defence Corp, the onus was put on our forwards to help bridge the gap. That ultimately lead to guys like Tavares and Marner (among others) being deployed for defensive assignments, which I believe stifled their offence and greatly reduced the effectiveness of this teams greatest strength: high octane offense.

Boucher was apparently very close to becoming the Leafs head coach before Babcock finally decided to zero in on the Leafs, and Keefe is of course Dubas' guy. That'd certainly put some pressure on Babcock as well.

Woke up today.   Sun still rose, ate breakfast, on my second coffee of the day, walked my dog, at work.   Life goes on.  The Leafs didn’t win and we move on.  Oh well.

This is still a really good 5on5 team that has massive amounts of offensive skill and a bad power play.   They could improve significantly if they find a way to fix the power play.

The defense isn’t going to get much better than this though as the cap wil limit what we do in the offseason.   This is going to be a big test for a Dubas as he tries to work his way around a tight cap.

Up first is probably getting rid of the assistants.   I do wonder what Matthews take on Babcock is after two years in a row of him being underutilizes in the postseason.

I get why Babcock would defend Marleau in his post-gam press conference but at the same time it doesn’t change that it was horrible utilization.  The 3rd line had it rough this series.  Nylander would gain the zone.   Have no one up with him.  He would pass back to the point.  The puck would be shot into the corner and the Back marleau would lose a puck battle.   Over and over again.

They were talking about this on the Leaf Report podcast.  They both thought that Matthews wants the "C" and it would put the onus on him to be "the guy" and show the team he's the leader in all situations.  Rielly will be the same with or without the captaincy, but a guy like Matthews it might make a big difference in his mind.  I tend to agree with this take.

It's always been Rielly to me.  I think he's always set a great example on the ice and off, he's been with the team for 6 years, he's entered the discussion among the elite players at his position, and as a defenseman he just makes a natural alternative choice to the discussion about picking one forward or another for the role.  It's entirely subjective, but he strikes me as more of a leader than Matthews, Tavares or Marner.

Oh, and I loved the way he stuck up for Jake Gardiner after the game.  That's leadership to me.

I remember Friedman mentioning on his & Marek's podcast, back before the playoffs, that Florida's Paul McFarland got the Panthers' pretty good PP organized and has been released by the team.

I also agree. We saw a major step forward for Matthews in this series. Watching him become a more 200ft player and scoring those 5 goals was nice to see. It's time he gets the C. It should also be noted that Matthews took some of the blame on Gardiner's gaffe. I personally don't think he was at any fault but he's trying to deflect the heat off Gardiner.

If they feel compelled to name a captain next year, I'd prefer Rielly. Might be better to wait another year if they want to make Matthews captain, I just don't feel like he's ready for that. Could be wrong, just a feeling.

I disagree, he stepped up in the playoffs and was the Leafs best forward from game 3 onward.  I think he's ready to take the next step.

I completely agree Zee. Give Matthews the 'C' and Rielly and Tavares can have 'A's
I also agree. We saw a major step forward for Matthews in this series. Watching him become a more 200ft player and scoring those 5 goals was nice to see. It's time he gets the C.

I'm fully expecting it to happen. It's been long enough.
I think so to. I'm betting they wait until Marner signs tho lol..

Oh yeah, totally forgot about that lol.  Funny how the Marner contract talks got pushed to the backburner after his agent shot his mouth off.  It'll pick up full steam ahead now.

And in the grand scheme of things, his production suffered after his agent shot his mouth off. It's going to be an interesting negotiation for sure. He's going to get 10 mill minimum but there's no way he's getting Matthews' money. I can't see it.
Paul Marner will be livid reading this thread with people not mentioning Mitch for an A or C.

Should he get 10M? He plays wing and with Tavares? How many points would he have gotten in Ottawa? He's amazing no doubt but do we need to set the new standard every time we sign someone? Kane gets 10M should Marner be the highest paid winger in the game? I would like to see something under 10M? You shouldn't receive a bonus for playing with one of the best centers in the game.

Don't talk logically. He's getting 10 plus even though I totally agree with you. I've been saying it all year. Marner is a star but he's not getting 94 points without Tavares. I'm sure the Leafs will look at all angles.

Leafs are in cap hell without winning a playoff series.  I’ll be long dead before they win anything.  The window may be open, but it was widest this year, particularly with all the first round exits.  If the Caps lose tonight I will puke.

Every time you don't make the playoffs or get eliminated is a blown chance. It's not like the teams left are crap and you can't predict wins and losses. Who's left means nothing. Wasn't meant to be, end of story. No what ifs..
