Most people find it easy to play with Willy and Johnsson; Matthews is no exception.

Going from Marleau and Ennis to those guys is really going to cause Matthews to explode all over the place.

The more he plays with them, the longer he'll be able to sustain and consistently repeat elite output.

He's probably been guilty of being a little selfish while plowing his trade as a NHL goal scorer so far. I think with the right partners though his giving game will see new heights.

As Babcock said earlier this year, "the comfort in himself and his ability to share himself with his teammates [...] has gotten better and better as time has gone on, which you would expect from a young man."

It's early in preseason but may as well GO LEAFS GO!

Really need to get a new moniker now that Brown's playing for the sens.

So what's the story on streams this year?  I just went to Reddit NHL and don't see any for tonight's game.  Too early?
Reddit had links to streams of last night's game, but not until about half an hour before it started.

Thanks Highlander, GT, Mr. Leaf ó much appreciated!

So Goat just took Spezza's spot?

I didn't watch the game. How did Spezza look?

They played different lines. Spezza was tried out in all three phases of the game. Looked great in the offensive zone, especially that shift he helped extend into a drawn penalty, but had two miscommunications leading to goals in the defensive zone.

Goat looked... activated. He was on the puck, supporting the play, getting open, had like 4 scoring chances alone but since heís the Goat and not Matthews, they didnít go in. Whatever line he played on as the lines jumbled, pushed the puck into the OZ and got looks at the net. He played some PK and got in a block.

Gauthier was playing with all the Marlies. He knows them and they know him. Spezza is new to the team and everyone is just frickiní fast. He had some jump at times and wasnít Jason Allison out there, but there were synchronization issues.
What do you want to drive?  A tired old Fiat Spezza or and exciting new Goat Lamborghini?
Seriously the Goat looked highly motivated and not all that slow yesterday. He has always been noted as being highly cerebral and probably is taking his time figuring it out.  I want Babs to keep him around. 
I want him to score 10 goals as the 4th line centre. I don't see him doing that unfortunately. He played well yesterday but he needs to finish on those chances once in a while.

Hey the Goat has hooves not hands, give a Goat a break.     Actually he can do 10,  4 scoring chances a game,  in 8 Games that is 32 shots, one of those is going to go in every 8 games, even if he has to use his horn nubs.
