Did anyone else thing Matthews celebrated a bit too hard on his first goal? Did he celebrate like that when goat scored?  I’m worried he’s a bit of a selfish a$$hole.

No.

Andy getting a little sloppy. That’ll happen when you get most of the last two periods off.

Any time you win and can put up 40+ shots you are doing a pretty good job.

I wouldn’t say the sens are playing particularly poorly either. They are just getting outworked and outpaced.

The talent difference between the two teams is also pretty evident tonight.

This is going to get called back but wow I continue to hate this rule that was created only because the linesman made a brutal mistake once.
They should make the blue line a metre thick.

Just gotta get rid of the stupid needing to have a skate on the ice on or outside the line part of the rule.
Don't agree. Skate has to be on the ice. Guy could be 4ft in the zone if the offside skate isn't down. As soon as the puck touches the blue line tho, it should be considered in the zone.

And be completely useless when the puck enters, because they had to stretch out so much to keep part of his body above the line without falling over.

So SportsNet introduces a new segment called “Ask Burkie” via Twitter....and they ask one question. 

Lots of promise here.... :o

It’s just Coach’s Corner without the overt bigotry.

NHL Transactions / Re: Laine signs 2 year deal, 6.75 AAV

If Laine starts caring about hockey again, this could be a steal. On the other hand, if he plays like he did for most of last season (basically all of it other than November)...

NHL Transactions / Re: Point signs 3-year bridge deal

Less income tax and bridge deal or no this makes the Marner deal look like the Leafs got bent over bad.

And far less likely those "offer sheets" rumours likely were for much less than what Marner signed for.

Not to mention Marner's endorsement will make up for the tax difference, but that doesn't seem to count??

A) He'd get those endorsements regardless of how much his contract with the team was, so, no, they don't count.

B) Marner would have to earn close to ~$2M in endorsements per season to make up the tax difference between Ontario and Florida. Only 3 players in the league currently earn that much through endorsement deals - Crosby, Ovechkin, and McDavid.

Leafs had two players on LTIR two years ago all season- Lupul and Horton.  They totalled 10.55M in salary.

Notice how they used only 5.7M over the course of the season.  Yet they had $0 final cap space?  Yes, their daily cap hit fluctuated based on who was on the roster but because they spent all 186 days in LTIR they had zero space.

That's because LTIR is a use it or lose is credit. They didn't use all of it. That doesn't mean it wasn't available to them until the end of the season. They could added almost $5M in total daily cap hits that season, and would still have been fine.

No its not.  LTIR space is not pro-rated like regular cap space. 

Like I said, the Leafs have the full amount of Clarkson's and Horton's contracts available for them as overages at the end of the season, regardless of how or when it's used. Since it's not calculated daily, the total amount is available to them at all times, and it's factored in at the end of the season when the league does their final cap calculations. It's been covered many times at many trade deadlines, and it's opened up quite a bit of potential space for teams over the years. If they still have enough room to fit in a player who's remaining cap hit for the season is $300K, they can do so.

12
So how are they going to fit in a player for 300k?

It's prorated at the deadline, so it becomes the equivalent of ~$1.2M. It's also buffer for short-term injury call ups, etc.

13
LTIR space is not calculated daily and you can't build up additional space by going below your LTIR created new limit.

You have the full amount of LTIR space available to you for as long as a player is on LTIR. That means, at the end of the season, the Leafs can be over the cap by the full value of Clarkson's and Horton's contracts, regardless of what their daily calculations are. If they spend ~$300K less between now and the trade deadline, that full value is available to them to use. It's not building additional space, it's optimizing the usage of it.

14
The Leafs will most likely go with a 20 man roster at home but will def need to take a #7 on the road with them.

There would be no benefit to having a 20 man roster for home games.
The cap is calculated daily no? If it is then there is a benefit. You take off the $700K daily hit of a player. It adds up in 41 games or whatever days there are.

Not when you are in LTIR.  You don't accumulate any cap space- you've used it all every day you are in LTIR.

You can save some of that LTIR space by not maxing out there every day. The Leafs will be awfully close to their absolute max this season, so being able to create a little bit of wiggle room could be useful.

There's marginal cap benefit if there's someone they can easily shift back and forth without waivers. The problem is, the only defenceman who doesn't require waivers, might be NHL calibre right now, and isn't one of the team's top prospects is Kivihalme.
