Is Matthew Knies not playing in this game while Owen Power is dressing for the Sabres proof that the Leafs are a sham franchise who are going nowhere in the postseason this year?

Yes. Yes it is.

I hope the Leafs win by a sufficient margin to prove they're a good team and not one of those close wins that show that they're a fraud who'll lose in the first round. This is because I'm a normal hockey fan with very good and smart opinions.

Matthews is going to make sure that Dahlin is on the ice when he scores his 60th tonight.

I also hope they don't get dominated in a single period to the tune of allowing 4 scoring chances while only having 19 themselves. Can't let teams have their way with them like that.

If the Leafs don't win by 10, they should blow it up and rebuild.

New rule where if they lose this arbitrary game they get relegated to the AHL before the playoffs.

Running up the score when I want them to proves they are a winner, but if they don't and still win it proves they are a loser.

Easy there though don't want to score too many goals because that'll get to their heads and when the game tightens up in the playoffs they won't be able to win like that.

Valid.  And solid.

It's also how you get punched in the face.

Look, let's be honest with ourselves, Kyle Dubas doesn't have time to read these boards. But I happen to know that he does have a daily Executive Summary prepared for his review, and this sort of top-shelf analysis is why.

So maybe we need a 4-0 win. Good d and goaltending. We don't run up the score and get soft. And probably at least 1 goal needs to be a PP goal to prove we can be good at special teams in the playoffs. 

Anything else at all means this team is garbage and should just forfeit the rest of the season and playoffs to save us the agrivation.
