Going to this game tonight. Finally a benefit of moving to Ottawa.

Hoping for a big game for Kadri tonight, if he plays. I'd really like to see him cement his roster spot so we can stop hearing about how he's a bust at 21.

Actually Kadri is still 20. He may not stay up , but he is no bust.
I´m excited for the addition of Lombardi. He should help our PK.

Some reporters commented on Twitter that he fell hard into the boards at practice Monday, so maybe this is something from that.

QuotejonasTSN1050 Jonas Siegel
No word on Connolly's absence as of yet. Also looks like Bozak will be out tonight. Nothing serious (on the ice), day-to-day injury.

Projected lines:
MacArthur-Grabovski-Kulemin.
Lupul-Kadri-Kessel.
Frattin-Boyce-Armstrong.
Rosehill-Dupuis-Orr/Crabb.

Agreed, good play by Frattin to make a safe drop pass there but Crabb should've dumped it deep instead of trying to get a weak shot through the coverage while shorthanded.

No idea why he's still around.

I think it was a different sens player on the near side that was pushed into Reimer.  The guy from the far side just plain and simply ran over and fell on top of Reimer.  Goalie interference at its finest.  But, what's done is done...

This is pretty much the Leafs full lineup for the year -- Connolly and Bozak are both out but that's it.  And they are out because of injuries.  At any given time during the year there will be several injuries.  Given that and the fact they are playing Ottawa, the defense doesn't look all that great.

Let's not have another season of pointless arguing who is the #1 line.  It doesn't matter who is labelled what.

I don't know. I hope that the Kessel line plays well enough for there to actually be a legitimate argument. That will likely make for a more successful season.

I've been railing on Kadri, but Kessel and Lupul have shown nothing at all this pre-season.

I've thought Kessel has looked very dangerous out there.

Optical illusion....or very Jason Blake. I'm not sure yet with Connolly not yet up to speed.

Oh, I just mean it doesn't matter who is labelled what, should only matter that they're playing well or not.  Seems like the media can't stop bringing it up, when really it doesn't matter.  Whoever is playing better will be put out there more.

Grabbo is beastly out there. He looks like a man on a mission. Even the look in his eyes gives off the vibe that he's only thinking about winning. Im really looking forward to Neil getting suspended.

Frattin should be up instead of Kadri. He needs a lot of work.

I wonder if there's going to be a trade soon. We're beginning to have a glut of players.

Neil may be my least favourite player in the league.

I read some article in one of the Toronto papers recently that commented that there is a feeling among Leafs players that Neil only has an impact on games where there are no enforcers on the other team.  Probably true.  And if not, it feels true.

quick game observation

1. Grabo really impressive
2. Phaneuf made some nice rushes
3. Liles seems to handle the puck as well as Kabs
4. Frattin more ready and dangerous than Kadri with less skilled line mates was more noticeable. That said I think Kadri will be the one that stays, and I expect him to improve if he sticks. I think once the pressure to make the squad comes off, he'll relax and play his game better. Long run I like Frattin. Can skate, hit, shoot and I like the fact he makes the easy smart play when there's nothing there. Take note Nazem.

He sure left the area when Schenn grabbed a hold of him in the second period in front of the net. He wanted no part of him.

It's hard to tell from a photo best labelled guitar player 'Tiny Timmy!' but I'm going to guess Derek Trucks or ferret in drag but I'm not going to give out the odds...

Isn't it Getty Lee from Rush?

I think it matters a little when the issue is which line is going to get the bulk of the PP time or be on the ice with a minute left and the team down by one.

According to Wilson, Kessel wasn't even going to play tonight but with others also battling injuries, was forced into duty.

Good news from the standpoint of Kessel's play as he wasn't even all that bad.  Bad news from the standpoint, that the argument of "other guys are hurt so Kessel had to play" in a preseason game.  If he wasn't going to play, why play him because Mike Brown can't get his 3rd/4th line butt into the lineup on a consistent basis?  Or maybe don't throw a guy out there who can only play 5 and a half minutes of hockey a night?

I wouldn't be surprised if Kadri's name were included as trade material.  I still think if he (Kadri) establishes himself, he'll be good enough to make the team, for the interim at least.  It's anyone's guess just who may or may not remain part of the team for the longer term.

Besides, I like Frattin.  He has demonstrated a wicked slapshot, and plenty of room for improvement, at least, for the near future.

TML is probably just trying to keep the media from dumping on Kessel/Connolly before the season starts.

You can actually hear it hit his stick, fwiw, the defensemans body language after the goal was telling as well. Still a great effort though.
