All of your lists are missing playoff superstar Lonny Bohonos.

Yeah I heard that the season will be suspended indefinitely.

Seems to me to be a little excessive given the mortality rates etc but they don’t have much choice considering the degree of panic that has erupted. It also appears to be highly contagious.

At least we won’t be eliminated in the first round again.

I get that mistakes come with skilled players having the puck a lot, but Marner’s giveaways lately when everyone is setting up to attack is deflating.

He tries one lazy toe drag after another in an effort to avoid body contact. Teams have figured it out.

4
Matthews has had several giveaways tonight.  Not nearly at his best.

He’s almost playing down to Marner and Tavares’s level tonight.

Nylander is playing a different league than these guys.

5
Jack Campbell good. Everyone else bad.

Willy’s working.

He’s been their best forward this whole trip.

6
The Leafs are again getting dominated by a bad team. Marner and Tavares continue to play poorly. They need to start driving shifts and possession. Right now they mostly look like they’re afraid of body contact.

7
Marner shouldn't be allowed to shoot.

Yep. Which is a pretty gross position to be in given that the kid makes 11 million. He has to hit the gym in the offseason.

8
Someone should tap Tavares on the shoulder to make sure he’s awake.

9
It’s like we’re trying to pass straight to San Jose. The entire team is standing around.

10
Tavares looks like he’s physically in pain when he has to skate, especially near the end of a shift. Why is he aging so rapidly?

Luckily we’re only one impossible Matthews wrist shot from being tied.

11
The Lesfs are playing in slow motion. We’re getting gooned by a bad team right now.


12
The Leafs are playing approximately zero defence.

13
Campbell is stealing this after terrible giveaways by Engvall and Kerfoot.

We’re lucky to be tied after that start this period.

Good deal — if they are willing to let him go to the Kraken or trade him if things are stagnating the next couple of years.  He does bring several things this team is desperately short of. 

On the other side of the ledger, he's not really all that great most of the time.

I'd feel better about the day if Dubas had at least gotten rid of Barrie.  But he couldn't even manage to do that.
You're not giving Barrie away for nothing. Leafs needed a replacement for him and obviously there wasn't a fit. And Muzz is a pretty steady D man night in, night out. We can use another like him on the right side.

1. Of course not.  But they could have gotten *something* for him, and should have.

2. As I said with regard to Muzzin, *if* things are stagnating in the next couple of years I hope Dubas is willing to move him.  Thus far he seems unable to move on from his mistakes (see Point #1).

They are getting Barrie for the rest of the season as they fight for a playoff spot and try to make a run. There is value there. He has another gear if the team can figure out how to use it.

I’d be transplanting the A from Marner now

Agreed.
