Depending on the Flyer's line up, I think the Leafs get beat up a bit tonight.

Yeah, that lineup looks like a very strange mish mash outside of the first line.

Interesting to see Blacker play today.

I hope the Flyer's dress just as many non-regulars tonight, however they might dress the "new guys" to which they have quite a few good ones. Colton Orr might be busy tonight. I also hope Jagr is rusty as ol' hell.

I wouldn't go that far.. but the lineup is intriguing.

In what way? I don't really see much intrigue here.

Yup, kinda mean to say, but metaphorically, I want to hear his joints screech.

That is one terrible looking lineup.  The forwards probably have only 3-4 guys who will make the opening night lineup (Schenn, JVR, Simmonds, maybe 1 other like Mair or something). 

The best defenceman is Matt Carle who is at best a #3/4 guy.

I'm sure the fans paying $100+ for their tickets appreciate it... :o

Agreed, I meant good for us, not that their line up was good...  ;D

Fans paying big money for early pre-season games have to know what they're getting into.

Preseason is a time for experimenting with the lineup.  Fans can't complain about a team not icing their best players in exhibition.

Owuya, Colborne, Mueller, Blacker, Scott, Finger and Gysbers are almost guaranteed to not make the starting roster.

Franson, Zigomanis, Orr, Caputi, Rosehill, Kadri, Boyce are among those fighting for spots, Franson will probably make it, but among those forwards only a maximum of 3 out of 6 will make it, more likely to be only 1 or 2.

So it's very far from our starting roster.

I wouldn't say it's that close. There's lots of bubble players on our end. No Grabbo, Kooly, Armstrong, Bozak, Gunner, Aulie.

But yeah, still way better than the Flyers. It'll be interesting to see Schenn vs. Schenn and Kessel vs. Kessel though. Hopefully Reims works out the rust.

Only pre-season game 2 and I'm already getting antsy for the puck drop!
There's valid reasons for the limited interest. Get out of your basement if you dare. The real world will bend you over.
