Leafs are trying to be too fancy and show up McDavid. They need to go back to making the smart and simple plays.

Not super helpful when you score on your own net, but otherwise, the team looks good again.

After the failed insurrection and the loss of their Fearful Leader's megaphones, the MAGA "movement" has lost a lot of momentum.

Time to fire Hazel May


Could be just semantics, as the deal is contingent on passing a physical or has only been agreed to in principle, etc.

Or not. Appears as though he's staying in Houston.

Now this has legs.

The Jays lineup is getting scary for opposing pitchers, for sure. Brantley adds another solid all-around bat, while being a reasonable defender, as well (not good - pretty close to average, which is still an upgrade for the most part). Another starting pitcher or two, and some depth adds here and there, and we're in good place for the coming season.

Great move. Now, to the pitching. Paging Trevor Bauer....

Just like I was saying after the loss to Ottawa, we shouldn't get too up or too down this early in the season, but one thing I've noticed is the play is still sort of a mess. Quite a few times, I've seen players running into each other, or causing a loss of the puck because players aren't quite in sync yet. The pass seems to be off by a split second or the player seems to be circling in the wrong direction or at the wrong time. When this all comes together, look out.

Agreed. Even with the quite dominant performances over the past two games, there are still rough edges and timing issues to be sorted out. Once that's all in place, there's going to be some lopsided scores.

The Leafs need to give him some consistent games on the 3rd pairing. Dermott can sit for a week, it won't be the end of the world.

Agreed, though I also understand why they might want a safety net in place for the first games or two. Ease him into NHL action a little more comfortably.

Not sure where this should go exactly but I'm looking to paint an accent wall in my place and I've only ever bought paint during pre-covid times when you could go in and try samples etc... Does anyone know how to order swatches/paint cards/chips or whatever? Do I just call up Rona/Home Depot and they'll figure it out somehow? I'm trying to figure out a way to do it online and get chips/cards mailed but it looks like only the Americans have that luxury.

You probably need to wait until after the lockdown if you?re looking for specific colours.

Won't happen. Leafs have enough goalies. Any goalie they grab off waivers to go on the squad will require waivers.

They kept Dell on the active roster for a reason. Leafs aren?t going to have Hutchinson be their fallback position. When Robertson is ready to go, they?ll pluck a goalie from someone and run with 3 netminders again.

Well, time to watch the waiver wire for the team?s next 3rd string goalie.

So there'd be nothing to stop a GM who hates the Leafs to deprive them of Spezza at no cost?  Other than be ostracized for ending a veteran's career as collateral damage for your spite, that is.

That would be a pretty serious waste of a reserve list spot.

Yeah, Dell probably gets claimed, which means the Leafs will need to do the same with someone else down the line. A lot of 3rd string goalies are going to be swapped via waivers this season.

Spezza should clear, which, as CtB says, will give the team some flexibility. Doesn?t necessarily mean he gets demoted, either.
