Title: Pre-season: Leafs @ sens - Sept. 18th, 7:30pm - TSN4, TSN 1050
Post by: CarltonTheBear on September 18, 2019, 08:19:23 AM

2nd pre-season game of the season goes in Kanata. We'll see the Matthews line and the projected 3rd line in action. Guys like Agnostino, Aberg, and Shore will be battling to show they deserve spots on the 4th line. Ditto for 4 of those defencemen battling for the final bottom pairing.

The sens roster should feature some familiar faces in Zaitsev, Hainsey, Brown, and Ennis:

Leafs will feel like they're playing a scrimmage from last year with Brown, Ennis, Zaitsev and Hainsey all in there.

The bottom six looks like not good lol. At least with the Marlies you get a look at some potential.

Wait they have Sandin playing the right side?

I'm hoping by the next game this group gets to play, the Harpur experiment will be over and it'll be Sandin - Hollowell instead.

I'm surprised to see Sandin on the right ... does that make sense? I mean, it must in Babcock's mind.

For me, Marincin makes so much sense due to his PK abilities and his generally fine, relatively speaking, 5-on-5 play.  If Sandin's going to get in to fill in form Dermott, I'd rather see him on the left.

I guess it just means that someone else is ahead of him on the left with little chance of him beating that person out?

Thoughts?

Of the 8 bubble defencemen 5 are lefties and 3 are righties. So someone needed to play their off side at camp. If anything this probably just signifies that Sandin isn't initially being considered for a final spot. I'd guess Marincin-Schmaltz is the favourite to be the bottom pair with one or two of Harpur, Holl, and Gravel in the press box.

Don't sell yourself short herman...you are the master of inane play-by-play.
