HM: Holmberg

This. And Liljegren too.
This, This...Liljegren looks very good.

Agreed

Blocked to read, hope they get to play great music in their room though.

Quote from: L K on May 19, 2023, 01:29:09 PMObviously who the new GM is going to really determine how I feel about this.  On the surface I'm not thrilled but it's not entirely unexpected or undeserved.

That presser on Monday didn't sound like a guy ready to go through the grind again

The autonomy stuff makes you wonder what he did/didn't want to do at times.  Shanahan sitting through multiple GMs with nothing to show for it.  The Shanaplan has been more of a bust in my mind and I hope he's the guy facing criticism moving forward

And why do we never hear from him? I have found this bizarre for quite a while how he never makes himself available for an interview (that I have seen) to hear how everything is going in his world.  The most we get is an occasional 'statement'. Since the idea of the Shanaplan, which I recall as a 5 year plan, he has sat back in the shadows - and I really am not sure on his overall thoughts on how to build a winning team.

Quote from: Bill33 on May 10, 2023, 08:54:51 PMMarner and Nylander stepped up, good for both

I still think Matthews has another gear. Hopefully next game. 
Im glad he can shoot fairly well with any possible minor injury. I think we are seeing the best he has to offer.

Quote from: Nik on May 10, 2023, 08:46:29 PMGlad for the result. Whatever some people here might have thought the Leafs didn't deserve to get swept based on their play. Now with any luck the top lines can really get going and make this a series again.
And the Leaf players dont care what anyone thinks. I kind of admire that!

That was an entertaining win. Full credit to every Leaf player for their heart.  Nice to see some Marner magic too.

Quote from: 4EVRLEAFAN on May 05, 2023, 12:43:02 PMWe definitely need to dump one of the big 4 contracts and get a goalie, unless Woll turns out to be a Rask or Roy this team has no chance. 

I'd be satisfied with one or two more guys who just play the right way in high stakes hockey. 88 & 34 are soft, avoid physical confrontation when ever possible and consistently take shifts or even 40+ mins off a game.
Not every player neede to excel in so many facets of the game. The same was said of Sundin, he coasts around the ice looking disinterested. It is part of their game. Others grind and they - if anyone will on a given night - be the one to score. Finding a Crosby etc who does it all is rare.

This team has every confidence to pull the goaalie to tie it.

Quote from: Bill33 on May 02, 2023, 07:38:51 PMI don't know, I don't think they should have bunting in the lineup. He might do something stupid /s
I see what you did there
