Quote from: Frank E on January 16, 2023, 03:52:01 PMNick Robertson can't buy a break.

Actually he has gotten several breaks for free.  He doesn't need to buy them.

There's definitely some bad luck involved, that's for sure. But some of the more astute members on the forum (I'm looking at you, Herman and CTB) clearly noted in the past that Robertson's stature, fearless approach, and skating mechanics (hunched over) expose him to greater risk of injury that other similar players (Caufield, for example).

I really hope he can get this figured out because he's going to be running out of chances real soon.  I'm not convinced he's going to be the player we all hope he will be for the Leafs, but these injuries may eventually put his NHL career at risk.

There is no way you're going to be able to spell his name phonetically

Not even close....

He's a pretty good #5/#6 guy, but he's nowhere near ready for the first pair.


Agree, not yet, anyway.  I think we were all getting excited by his play since the trade - me included - but that may not necessarily be a reasonable expectation at this point.

Quote from: L K on January 14, 2023, 08:36:12 PMKeefe did it in the playoffs against Montreal when he took Sandin out of the lineup for Dermott and Sandin came back and didn't look good.  I wonder if Timmins getting scratched got in his head and cooled him off.

Playing with Gio and Brodie is a much different game than playing with tonight's partner.

You can say that again.  The deadline acquisition process needs to focus on finding someone who can play and accentuate #44.

Quote from: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on January 14, 2023, 08:34:06 PMI think Timmins can have a seat the rest of the way.

Sorry, but Nylander can join him tonight.  GiveWay after giveaway.

Also, Keefe needs to let go of the five forward PP.  "Stop trying to make it happen, Sheldon!".
