Gustavsson needs to get the next start.  There are way too many glaring weaknesses in Reimers game right now and he really hasn't earned the number 1 job since his injury, it was just handed back to him.

And why does Reimer hunch over in that stupid prolonged fetal position every time a puck gets past him?

Dupuis: 30GP 0 points

Boyce: 1GP, 1 point

Boyce makes things happen out there....Dupuis is slow and useless

I would have given Kadri a chance.  Maybe in the last 20 games or so he will get called up, helping the Leafs rush for 10th again.

I think the thought here is to fill the role of a more defensive minded player....Kadri doesnt quite fit

Boyce will hopefully be given some time on the PK which he seemed to do well at last season

Boyce getting the call-up as per Twitter.

thats great news!  Now he can prove he belongs here more than useless Dupuis.

I am also questioning Dupuis existence on this team.  Daryl Boyce would be a big upgrade over him.
I actually think that they miss a guy like Sjostrom on the pk...he had loads of speed and knew when to force the play at the right time.  Dupuis just does not have the kind of speed that you want from an undersized 'defensive specialist'.

I am not really sure what he has done to maintain his spot in the line-up.  Personally, I would rather see Darryl Boyce playing in his spot on the 4th line.  Dupuis isn't overly fast, has not shown that he can be dangerous offensively, and in not very intimidating on the forecheck.... I think that Boyce is slightly better in all of those categories and is very dependable defensively and also proved to be a good penalty killer last season.
Dupuis is an ok depth guy, but i think it's time to try someone else to help give the team a little more spark.

The whole counting down the standing from 15 to 1 pre-game is pretty embarrassing.  Karma is a b!tch.
today's Toronto Sun front page didnt help either...

Last year, I was so impressed with the way he came into camp. His foot speed was MUCH better then his 1st and 2nd years, which helped with angles, got him out of the corners and got the puck off his stick much quicker. You could really tell that he put in the off-season work to get that foot speed up like that...

I dont know if he decided to switch things up this off-season but that is what I see as his biggest problem right now. He cant move his legs quick enough to get into the play, hit guys or skate out of any sticky situations..

I hope im wrong and it just turns out to be a slow start but so far its been really bad...
I think you are bang on with your observations.  I really wonder if his off season training has had an adverse affect on his skating.  He just doesnt look as agile and solid on his skates and it is hurting all areas of his game, even his hitting has not been as effective since he cant seem to take the body with as much authority without a balanced skating stride. 
He looks so much like he did in his sophmore year, and he seemed to shake it off last season.  He needs to do the Gary Roberts off season program and focus on the core, not so much upper body...he might be a little top heavy right now.

Kulemin always skates hard and backchecks hard, but I really wish he would assert himself more physically in the offensive zone.  He can be a force in the corners when he wants to be but he tends to rely on Grabbo and Mac to do the dirtywork in there.  I really think there is another level that he can still elevate his game to.

Steckel went 88.9% on the dot!

Hopefully Armstrong and Mac are ok...

Will Schenn or Komi be on the press box tomorrow ?

its deva vu with Schenn playing much like he did in his sophmore season again....
