Quote from: Arn on January 16, 2024, 09:40:32 AMI just looked it up actually, was December 2013 so just over 10 years ago!
Leafs third line then was Ashton- D'Amigo - McLaren
McLaren played 5 shifts for 3.22 of ice time.
Phaneuf, Kessel and Kadri were all -2, while Gardiner was +2 in a 5-2 loss.
Bernier was in net.
It's important to remember these things when looking at the current team and realising it's not that bad...
Quote from: azzurri63 on January 02, 2024, 10:38:33 PMI think it's too much. Like Willy but his laziness at times and still soft play avoiding contact is hard to watch. He's not the only one. You can't compare him to Pastrnak. David is a better scorer plays harder and doesn't take any crap. If you had to chose 1 for the playoffs most managers would take Pasta so shouldn't be in the same ballpark. Dubas gave him what he wanted and if rumours are true Tre is doing the same. If Marner is gone then Tavares comes off the books maybe this team can retool but if we keep overpaying to the core it's going to be the same shi* repeated year after year. How long before MLSE figures it's not working?

Flip the top 3 RWs around as needed. Marner gets lots of extra time on special teams. Maybe making third line crazy dangerous is enough.

And then cw pointed it out, and so did MLHS. While the overall minutes were well-managed, 16 and 34 played hard for the last 2-3 minutes just to get it to OT.
Tavares really dialed it up at the end. 3 straight faceoff wins to give the Leafs repeated chances to tie it. We may crab about how much cap space he takes up, but he's still elite at what he does best.
I don't buy that. When the puck went into the Leafs end and McCabe went back to get it and thwarted the Isle forward who then went off along with the other Isle forward. Horvat and Brazil came on. Both Marner and Matthews could have went off. Instead they decided to play heroes and it cost them. If they were gassed it sure didn't look like it Marner put his head down and skated back hard. Matthews maybe not so but maybe he figured he'd take the trailer. If you're tired get off. Not the first time they've cost us in OT and at times it has been because they were out there too long. Not tonight.

Granted this is very much a best case scenario for the Leafs, and it's possible that Calgary doesn't value saving hard cash that much and prefers an actual sweetener for Klingberg instead. But trades like this have happened before. It's basically a mini Horton for Clarkson type deal.
Quote from: Highlander on November 14, 2023, 05:33:16 PMSorry, I haven't seen it and shouldn't have commented the way I did. My bad. However asking me to believe a murder charge of any sort can be associated with this is hard to imagine. From seeing it do you believe the player had made a deliberate attempt to injure? or maim? If you go this far indite the UK hockey association for not mandating neck guards until someone died. Very sad for everyone.
Quote from: Highlander on November 14, 2023, 12:21:09 PMUtterly stupid.

I mean the 4th line left winger looks like the phonetic spelling of Tkachuk, and the centre seems to be a character from Lord of the Rings.

Katchouk and Entwistle on Chicago.
