Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Is it panic time yet?
« Last post by L K on Today at 02:56:04 PM »
My opinion but I think some of the players are tired of Babcock.
Nylander with his handling last year as well as Matthews supposed rift last year.
I agree with Mike that if you're playing like crap you deserve to sit or move down the lineup but that has to be with all players.
Problem with Babcock is he won't do that with the veterans.

His handling of players, ice time, accountability list goes on is utter BS.

I very much agree with this. I understand trying to establish the "compatibility/familiarity" process he may be trying to achieve but
he needs to mix a lot up and since he's loath to hold anyone other than 3rd and 4th line players accountable...he needs to move out
Zaitsev (he's SO stubborn on his play) and Ozo and just try Holl and Rosen etc. It doesn't mean he's panicking but maybe he thinks his
rep will suffer... ::) if he does this. After all he's smarter than anyone else.

Nylander holding out had absolutely nothing to do with Babcock and everything to do with his contract.  If you criticize anyone in the Leafs organization it would be Dubas for staying at a lower cap hit until December.

Doesn't the team's decline pretty much coincide with the PP totally going into the tank?  It was fading starting in Nov but when completely south afterwards.

So not the pairings I suggested but still some tinkering there.

Marleau with Matthews has never worked.   I like Marner with Matthews though, maybe Marleau can just be along for the ride.
Agree about Marleau. It's about time Marleau got to play with his sons tho!!!
Seriously though these three seem to have a serious bromance off the ice. Having a bit of fun won't hurt.

I have been advocating the Tavares/Marner split just because I think both these guys have the ability to make those around them better.

Thanks for joining me, Zee.

As for the rest of you, you're a bunch of fair-weather voters.  :P

I only watched about 5 minutes of this one but I did see a handful of nice plays by Marincin in that time so I support his nom.

Edmonton would literally be better off if their GM was an inanimate carbon rod.

You mean potato.

I actually started with the full description of what the Potato GM's rules were, but then scaled it back to potato, thought better of swiping a Leaf reference, and went with the ol' C-Rod.

TIL Edmonton is over the cap (LTIR).

MotM: Marleau.  Saw him make 3 nice plays (including the stick check on the EN, that was no penalty)
HM: Marincin.

Yeah, based on my 2+ periods of watching (ok I flipped back when it was an empty net and the Patriots/Chiefs game was still on), I'd say  Marleau/Marincin sounds right.  I noticed Marty make some nice keep ins and generally help the offensive part of the game while not being a liability on the back end.  Marleau was noticeable too.

Note, maybe nobody else is voting.  ;D
