Quote from: Bender on April 10, 2024, 06:10:41 PMJust came back from the Jays game. That was brutal. So hard to root for a team like this. Woof.

I was watching on TV. As soon as they hit the HR in extra innings I turned off. Knew that was it done. Was surprised to see they even tacked a few more on when I checked the final result later on too.
The first pitch of 10th, the ball is in the air, changed the chanel.

Quote from: Guilt Trip on April 08, 2024, 05:56:17 PMThere's no spear there and Andersson will do it again without a doubt. That slash isn't going to stop him.

There's a bit of a slash to the back of Drai's leg, but nothing out of the ordinary and definitely nothing he won't do again when he can draw a penalty with his embellishment.
I think he turns his blade very deliberately to gauge (spear) and an unprotected spot.

From repeated watchings of the replay, it's pretty clear Andersson's blade hit Draisatl flat. No spear.
I obviously disagree.

Quote from: Guilt Trip on April 09, 2024, 10:04:36 AMThe original pass from AM34 to Marner was pretty cool...One handed backhand from the goal line.

McCabe opening up with that left foot in the air was sweeeeeet and unexpected. Looked like a goal-scorer there.

Western Conference hockey is hardcore
Sneaky spear by Andersson there and Draisaitl gave it right back 10 fold. Andersson won't do that again.

Quote from: Bender on April 07, 2024, 11:42:48 PMSammy's goalie stats against his wins record is downright nutty.
I guess the formula is working. They must know they have to minimize chances against and score lots.

Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on April 07, 2024, 11:49:03 PMSidney Crosby has long faded off the top players' list but he's still pretty darned good.
40 goals is better then pretty darned good!

Torn because I want Crosby in but the Leafiness dictates a Dubas Stanley Cup.

Quote from: cabber24 on April 05, 2024, 03:34:53 PMMaple Leafs projected lines Saturday in Montreal:

Bertuzzi – Matthews – Domi

McMann – Tavares – Marner

Knies – Holmberg – Nylander

Dewar – Kämpf – Reaves
Not sure about this combo. They were humming when:

Knies - Matthews - Marner
Bertuzzi - Domi - Nylander
McMann - Tavares - Robertson

That 3rd line proposed for Saturday? Have any of those guys played together? Anyway, happy to see the core 4 across 3 lines.

I guess what you're saying the coach really doesn't do anything at all. Sign me up for that job.

I don't know what he's talking about. What are the lines? What are the D pairings? Who is our starting goalie? I don't have much faith in Keefe at all.

The way his team has played much of the season, I doubt you will have to worry about that next September. It is not all Keefe's fault. He's not a terrible coach. They never got him the D talent they identified as a need. He probably needs a goalie to stand on his head to do anything in the playoffs. I'm at a loss to figure who that might be. This roster cannot seem to be molded consistently into a sum greater than its parts - too often it looks like something less than the sum of its parts. I hope for the best but my expectations are not high. Too many games like last night.
I would argue he has failed to develop and utilize what depth he has. Loading up two lines is not good coaching. Can't kill a penalty, the PP is wildly inconsistent. Timothy is miles away from where he should be at this point in his career... Robertson... Knies. Time for a new coach.

I hope he stays because that will only happen with a deep playoff run but I doubt it.

Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on March 26, 2024, 10:04:16 AMMy read of his body language there at the end?  Done for the season.

Maybe permanently.
...but seriously, he does not look comfortable after making that move.

Go Leafs Go!

My guess for playoff lines:

Knies-Matthews-Marner
Bertuzzi-Domi-Nylander
McMann-Tavares-Robertson
Dewar-Kampf-Jarnkrok
