General Rumours & Speculation / Re: Armchair GM 2018-2019

St Louis would only take Gardiner in hopes that they could flip him at the trade deadline for a pick.  He's a pure rental and does St Louis no good as they wouldn't resign him

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Leafs 2018/2019 Schedule in 10 game chunks

I had hoped the Leafs were too talented to suffer the 4th chunk swoon like they did last season, but no, playing crappy again in the 4th chunk

MotM: Marner
HM: Nylander

I'll flip that.  Marner's second goal was kind of a baddie by Lou IMO.  And his mistake helped contribute to the OT winner.

I didn't blame Marner for having to receive what amounted to a hospital pass deep into his second OT shift. And I credit Marner's second goal for recognizing that Lou bit on Tavares' slight fade out (expecting the pass).

I'm very okay with Nylander getting well deserved props nonetheless :) He's warming up.

Yes, Marner and Rielly both deserve some blame for the GWG.
I blame Rielly more, he had control of the puck and should have known Marner was gassed, could have held it and waited for a change

Barkov, what a move.

Look at the replay.  Andersen went down before barking even looked up.  Why?

Seriously, man, your opinion of Andersen is so far off the mark it's a laughable.

Well, I disagree. To take the next step as an organization you canít have a goalie that is usually second best in the contest.

I get that you are extra pissed off because Andersen didn't beat BOS last game and didn't in G7 last spring.  I'm disappointed too about that.  And I agree that Andersen needs to win some playoff series for us to be considered as a top-flight goalie.  But the stats, the style of play (calm in the net), and last but not least the W-L record all point toward a very good goalie who's a good fit for a team whose D-corps is not elite.  He's far and away the best chance we've had to go far when it counts at least since Belfour.

None of this is untrue.  Problem is, if itís a game 7 or a division game that decides playoff position it seems more than likely that Andersen will give up 4 plus goals.   Of course Iím being harsh, I donít disagree.  But there is room for improvement. 

Whatís been frustratin these past two weeks is that everyone has been defending Andersen to the nth degree.  This in a stretch where he has given up 4 or more goals in 3 of 6 and 3 or more goals in 5 of 6.  His GAA since Dec 1 has been 3.5.   He has struggled lately.
I haven't been defending him. #TeamAndersenNeedsToBeBetter

And enough of the Freddie bashing please. It's ridiculous. He won't be the best goalie on the ice every game. That's impossible. If it wasn't for him we'd be fighting for a wildcard spot, not be top 5 in the league. The team is a but out of sync since Nylander came back. It will come but it's going to take time.
Yeah they're in their 4th chunk funk just like last season they'll turn it around at some point. Just frustrating to lose to the bottom team in the conference

We'll see in June
We'll see if Dubas shores up this defence because it isn't good enough and won't be come playoff time. Hainsey on your top pair and top Pker is all you need to know about the state of our D. He should be on the 3rd pairing.
The d wasn't the issue tonight. The entire team playing like crap was

?  If we are playing in June he'll have answered the question.
Barney will get the reference. Quote from Cujo after he left the Leafs for the Wings and was asked if he thought he made the right decision. "we'll see in June" he said.

Rielly had control of the puck, all the time in the world and tries to force a play to Marner which caused the turnover. So stupid

10
Congrats Leafs you lost to one of the worst teams in the conference

11
Matthews has done sweet FA. He's looked lost the last few games.

12
Well at least we're guaranteed a point despite playing like ass for 2 periods (again)

13
Thank you Marner!

14
There's the big save by Freddie !

15
How can the entire team be off? I can understand maybe 2-3 guys having off games but the entire team?
