Title: Preseason: sens @ Leafs - Sept. 18th, 7:30pm - SNO, TSN 1050
Post by: CarltonTheBear on September 17, 2018, 11:44:34 PM

Pre-season hockey! While these games can often be borderline unwatchable, tomorrow night's match will certainly be special. It'll feature the debut of the teams biggest offseason acquisition in the franchise's history. That's right, the Semyon Der-Arguchintsev era will officially kick off tomorrow night in Lucan, Ontario.

Oh, and some guy named John is gonna play too.

Presumably Ottawa will also be fielding a team, but I'll believe that when I see it.

Already in mid-season trashtalk form.  Congrats on taking your craft seriously and hitting the gym evening during the dog days of summer.

Is this spectacle going to be streamed?

I'm sure Nic Cage will be all over it. He had the rookie tournament.

I'm out of the streaming game finally, re-ordered Rogers cable after my youngest started grade 1 and I don't have the grand a month in day care fees anymore :)

As I suspected, Tavares will likely be in JvR's spot for PP1.
Ennis/Kapanen probably gets Bozak's old role.

No PP for Leivo...

Which leaves:
Marleau
Matthews-Johnsson-Nylander
Gardiner

Your first preseason game is not a draft of the regular season. There's several players that watched the game on a TV. Are we to assume that Clark or Moore has a spot too? I mean, they were in the first draft of the line up.

Now, Brown could very well end up on Kadri's wing but I doubt that you see those 3 together very often.

Very impressed with Borgman who seems serious at landing a spot with the big club.  Looks good on the rush, sports a good point shot, not afraid to use the body.  So far, so good.

Tavares & Marner surely didn't miss a beat.  These guys could have had skates strapped on all summer long for all we know. (only joking).
Tavares + Marner = m-a-g-i-c
They complement each other on that ice admirably.

McElhinney & Sparks dressed to impress.  McBackup is the experienced, calm, and collected one.
Sparks is the confident, advantageous one and by that his sheer size and span across his net forced the hand of his opponents that resulted in botched chances.
Take your pick, whom do you prefer?

Leivo.  Of all the Leafs, he had the most SOG (5) plus some chances to convert which he didn't.  He needs to find that net but can generally skate and go with the flow. 
The Leivo-Kadri-Brown generated chances in the offensive zone as well as time but little in the way of anything short of spectacular. 

Olzighanov came across as a Polak with a brain.
Dermott played okay, at times not okay.

Not too happy that the Leafs D continues with sloppy play (hey, it's only a pre-season game). 

Glad the Leafs won and happy that Johnny T is a Leaf!!!

Yep, I don't think Matthews has a spot on this team...

Looking at today's lines and yesterday's I think we can all assume that Babcock's first draft of the opening day lineup is:

Marleau-Matthews-Ennis
Hyman-Tavares-Marner
Leivo-Kadri-Brown
Johnsson-Lindholm-Kapanen

https://mapleleafshotstove.com/2018/09/19/preseason-game-1-toronto-maple-leafs-4-vs-ottawa-senators-1/

I missed this game, but I was following the score. The notes from MLHS paint a pretty promising picture.

Babcock has been dangling the carrot in front of Dermott and Johnsson (and to a lesser extent Leivo and Carrick, who were and are in a similar position in previous seasons) to not assume they've made the team (everyday is a try out) and demonstrate they can maintain their effort consistently.

Quote
Igor Ozhiganov (#92) – Showed some promise as a #6 if he can polish up some rough edges to his game (took some bad routes, had some bad angles, hands looked a bit tight passing). His hockey fundamentals are fine — he has good defensive instincts, knows where to stand, and can box out properly. He certainly stands out on this team with his size and reach. He stepped in and showed off a cannon from the point that missed the net just wide in the third period, and he was credited with four shots on goal on the game sheet.

Mike Babcock’s review was positive after the game: “He can pass the puck, he can get it through, he sees the ice, his head’s up, he’s big. Good looking player.”

This isn’t based on anything solid, but it feels like Ozhiganov might have a bit of an early edge for the opening night #6 spot knowing he brings elements Babcock values that are not present elsewhere in the top six.

According to Justin Bourne's recent Q&A on The Athletic and his guest appearance on the latest Leaf Report Podcast (the live one), in a defender, Dubas highly values zone exit capabilities (which has a very strong correlation to future zone entries with possession and thus good chances on goal); Babcock, via DJ Smith (defense coach), highly value physical toughness (which has borne out in the repeated signing and deployment of Roman Polak). Unfortunately, both those characteristics rarely reside in the same player, and certainly would not at affordable prices. So it'll be about the team mix, and it looks like Ozhiganov indeed has a leg up because he provides that different element.

Similar to a dump-in a the blue line, glass and out is sometimes the right play, i.e. when it is the only viable play that doesn't result in immediate continued possession by the offense. Gardiner should maybe use it a bit more. It's a big problem if it's the only play the defense knows how to make to get out of the zone when their partner is unavailable (Polak, Hainsey).

Yeah I was just being funny.  Can't draw any conclusions from one preseason game, want to see how Oz handles all situations before I determine whether he can move the puck better than Polak. Let's hope he's an upgrade.

I think that we can all agree that one pre season game, played at a non-standard venue, is not in any way an accurate way to measure ability. We saw some good glimpses of Oz and I thought Cracknell and Clark were strong, but let's see what the candidates do on an NHL rink.

I'm not sure what the argument here is. Babcock generally doesn't mess around in pre-season. Barring some serious unexpected performances, good or bad, the lines we're seeing here with NHLers are very likely going to be the lines we see in game 1 of the season.

Thanks for making the effort.  I was actually talking about using the natural shapes of the two circle halves to each make the 6 and the 9 shapes, and then the design would somehow have two 1s on either side that somehow fit in.  But to have proper 6 and 9 shapes, the whole symbol has to be mirror image.

Thanks for having a go, though!

This is what I was thinking of initially:

Cool, I want that on a wheel I can spin.

91 is the upside down of 16

I will pay for a Maple Leafs themed T-shirt where somebody exploits that with a Yin Yang symbol.  I mean, literally, side-by-side, the middle part of 1691 generally makes the Yin Yang symbol.

I'll take 10% of royalties if one of you develops and markets this shirt.

Something like this?

I don't have time now to get the colors right.

Thanks for making the effort.  I was actually talking about using the natural shapes of the two circle halves to each make the 6 and the 9 shapes, and then the design would somehow have two 1s on either side that somehow fit in.  But to have proper 6 and 9 shapes, the whole symbol has to be mirror image.

Thanks for having a go, though!

Gotcha.  That would look cool, but I don't know how you'd do the 1s to match the curviness of a yin-yang as displayed here.  Probably would need to redraw the y-y shape using the beveled corners of the 6 & 9 as in the jersey typeface.

You can assume. I'm not assuming. I've seen one preseason game. Actually I watched one period. I'm not going to pretend that I know what the team will look like in two weeks. But go ahead.

I'm not sure what the argument here is. Babcock generally doesn't mess around in pre-season. Barring some serious unexpected performances, good or bad, the lines we're seeing here with NHLers are very likely going to be the lines we see in game 1 of the season.

I wouldn't call it an argument. The poster had a big question mark around Leivo with Kadri and Brown. I simply said that we can't be sure that come the start of the regular season that the line will be in tact. Again, I agree that those assured a spot, can basically be penciled in but until I see Leivo play full time, I'd hesitate to assume he has a spot on the roster.
