No pressure tonight or anything, Leafs...just their top scoring threat is out of the lineup.

So really, Barabanov out, Brooks in, is the only change?

3
Tavares
Hyman

1.  Joe played 18 minutes, Matthews and Marner are at 23 and 24 minutes.  Nylander played 16.  Tavares 15. When Marner and Matthews don't get points in a hockey game, I don't blame their left winger.

2.  Freddie's numbers don't look good, and he's not passing the eye test either.  Typical slow start for him...I think he'll have a shorter leash this season if Campbell can play well.  If Campbell stands on his head tonight, there's going to be talk.

I appreciate the slight jab at the sens in lower case.

Are you new?

I get more senile by the year so I may as well be new.

Ya man...sens and habs has been a proper thing for ever and ever.

We disrespect them so much, we don't even capitalize their names.  I'm sure this drives them crazy!

Sorry to hear about that, Arn.  Take care of yourself.

Connor Brown will find his way into the top six because Connor Brown perseveres.

I was thinking that at least they didn't fall apart when they got down a couple. 

They looked a more calm in comparison to the sort of manic play once they got down last season.

Or maybe I just don't remember well given how long ago they played.

This may be confirmation bias at work but the Leafs still feel like they have way, way too many situations where I just have no idea where their defensemen are. They gave up two breakaways on a PK. How does that even happen? Why would you ever send defensemen past centre ice when a man down? Likewise the second Anderson goal. Their 2nd defenseman, whoever it was, wasn't even the 3rd guy back.

Yeah, and that stuff really bugs me because it's so basic.

Great to come back and win the game, and Montreal had some pop to their game...I don't think they're going to roll over this year.

I just hope that we're not going to have to be talking about a lousy defensive game all season long, again.

Nylander

uh, this might not have been the best day to talk about this.

Did he delete the tweet?

Seems like it, yeah. It was basically him boasting about their plan to safely host 6,000 fans in their arena when allowed.

Yeah, I had a quick look at it when it was active...Melnyk really doesn't know how to read a room.

Most of the expected Marlies are headed to waivers for AHL or being loaned outright (see details link)
Notable cuts: Joey Anderson, Timothy Liljegren, Pierre Engvall
For Frank: Marincin is also cut

If Marincin were to make the team, it would be an indictment of what Dubas acquired over the summer.

So although I'm glad to see this, I'm not really surprised.

It's the Lehtonen thing that has me a little concerned, and I never thought Dermott looked any good at RHD.
