Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: 2023 Training Camp Thread

I'd go with option 1 and try to bag an emergency recall at some point.
Quote from: herman on September 27, 2023, 08:18:54 AMIt's very much Tavares and the kids, but the 'depth' is all the Marlies high-end or Leafs cusp players aside from Clifford. I'd personally want to try Gregor-Holmberg-Lafferty out as that would be a potential Leafs 4th line, but they do want to try out Lafferty's wheels with Tavares.

QuoteKeefe: I thought [Lafferty] had a good game tonight. I thought Gregor also had a good game. I wanted to get a look at those guys together with Holmberg. I was interested in that. That is why we took him away from Tavares today — just to get a look at that, and at the same time, give Robertson a chance up with John.
I really liked the speed of Gregor and Lafferty together. Whether it is five-on-five or PK, that is a great asset.
Was kind of hoping Jones would let in a stinker with the game out of reach so he could slip through waivers more easily.
Holmberg draws a penalty protecting the puck on an empty net scoring chance and Keefe rewards him with a PP shift with the rest of the kids. Pays off in a Timmins bookending goal to cap off this game.
Gregor-Holmberg-Lafferty is solid as expected (especially against pseudo-NHL Sabres). We have to live with it, but the Reaves signing is gumming up roster flexibility.

Lafferty > Reaves
Healthy Timmins = diminished Klingberg
They're playing McCabe on the right side now and he's done it before.


is the way to go if we are down Klingberg.
Oh my that was delicious
I love Knies' self pass into a handoff to oncoming speed. Great slick finish for Lafferty.

And that was very nice too
Timmins with the stretch pass
Domi might've gotten his dad's head (and hotheadedness), but he must've got his mom's hands.
Willy's golf skills do not transfer to baseball hitting. Auston is lacking leg drive but has the leverage and bat speed to muscle it out. Mo remembers t-ball.

Quote from: OldTimeHockey on September 27, 2023, 11:44:29 AMEvery time I watch Lafferty, I question whether or not he's a legitimate NHL player.

In hindsight, I wish Dubas had signed Acciari to a 2 yr deal and not Lafferty

Dubas signed Acciari to a 3 year deal
