51 in 54.

He didn't miss it by much.

Outside shot of 60 in 60!

Quote from: CarltonTheBear on Yesterday at 11:53:42 AMWouldn't be shocked if this was just about giving him a chance to continue practicing with players since he's not on the current Leafs road trip. Obviously it'd be great if he was able to get into a game too though.

Maybe. He's basically there for up to 5 games (3 as the standard, plus the team's option of requesting 2 more), since it's an LTIR loan. Typically, this type of assignment would be partly to assess if a player is ready to return to action, so, I guess we'll see.

I think Keefe said that they were not going to have any practices on this road trip
That probably factored into it


Maybe, but if he wasn't going to join the team any way, he could have practiced with the Marlies and with some of the training staff that wouldn't be on the trip without being the loan. Seems like the hope/plan is that he gets into some games.

Quote from: cw on February 20, 2024, 06:25:51 PMI agree. Chiseling a game off was a long shot.
The leak of the decision might have been a little more compelling grievance than anything to do with the incident itself (and that was not that big of an issue).
The team going 4-0 took a bunch of whatever sting there was away for me.
Hopefully, they keep playing well so they don't mortgage too much of the future at the deadline.

It forced the team to tighten up defensively as to not overwork an undermanned defence corps. If they can keep that up, with some minor tweaks to the bottom end of the roster, we could have something here.

The most Bettman was ever going to do was knock one game off the suspension, so, him upholding the whole thing really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. He very rarely makes any changes to supplemental discipline decisions.

AUSTON MATTHEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Will he get to 50 before anyone else gets 40? Sources say probably.

Matthews really is in a league of his own when it comes to goals. Currently up by 9 over Reinhart. Will likely hit 50 before the end of February. If not for the two "cold" streaks (by his standards, at least), he might be pushing 60 already!
