Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Barabanov to SJ

Traded for Antti Suomela who will be Taxi Squad/Marlies bound. He was on San Jose's Taxi Squad. Leafs save 225K.

That pretty much summarizes it. Some depth that's more familiar with the North American rink.

And for whatever little it's worth also has some experience on the PK (both NHL + AHL).

With all the cap stuff that this helps with, part of me wonders if this trade was less for the player and more for some cap shenanigans.

I definitely think this, a cap maneuver but also playoff depth.

That was a masterclass from AM defensively on his last shift.

Engvaaaalllllllllllllll
Engvall didn't let in that first goal. Weak goals change games. Leafs were controlling the game, soft goal, tide turns. Still Leafs have given up only 14 shots.

I don’t know what you think I meant but I was shaking my fist at the Engvall curse

Man what a horrible series for the Leafs, let's recap:

  • Oilers completely shutdown Matthews
  • Anderson only wins one game
  • Leafs penalty kill was horrible, only one successful kill
  • Simmonds was invisible
  • Mike Smith consistently bulled Leafs forwards with no response from the team (hello Simmonds? or maybe Anderson if he's not too busy not winning games could be bothered to stand up to the opposing goalie!??? Where's the heart??)
  • Jujhar Khaira, he of 59 career points, made Marner look absolutely foolish in a play that is sure to be replayed constantly on Sportscentre
  • Barabanov is a bust - Dubas should be fired for wasting time and assets on someone who is sure to be a perpetual healthy scratch
  • Keefe elected not to play Matthews on a PP late in the 3rd; perfect opportunity to break him out of his slump and he sits him. Real genius there, can we get rid of this clown?

Need I go on? Just a complete embarrassment of a series, this is a true moment of crisis for the team and I'm not sure I have faith they can get it together. I think we need to blow up the core and start again from scratch.

What they need is an young, exciting, developing winger like Jimmy Vesey. Package him with Tavares and we'll take Eichel off their hands. I mean it's devastating to lose Vesey but I just can't stand seeing Buffalo suffer like this.

It may be in the Leafs' best interest to let the Oilers score before the end of the period, would feel safer with a two goal lead.

HM Hutchinson

Kudos to Barbanov, Mikheyev, Brodie, Matthews

Just a note I liked Barabanov's game again. Looks like he's adjusting. Mikheyev continues to play well

I was just about to say this. I thought this was his best game as an NHLer, he looked much more comfortable out there.
Not that it means much but he generates a lot more then Vesey has.

No doubt, I have not seen anything from Vesey to justify his inclusion in the lineup (other than injuries).

Hutchinson has not been an issue through almost 4.5 periods vs Calgary.

What the heck was Bogosian doing trying to dangle all the way to the Montreal net from his own zone

Motivated to catch Matthews in the goal scoring race
