That's like the definition of a passive defensive structure. Like, over the top passive. That's the exact opposite of how a team built like the Leafs should be playing.

This was as the pass was going to Anisimov:



From watching the play develop, I'm not sure Phaneuf had any idea that Gaborik was behind him.

Clarkson can't skate and handle the puck at the same time, it is really remarkable that he was able to get 7 year deal.  Nonis has to be shaking his head everyday about this one.  The leafs play better when he is out of the lineup.

Paul Ranger playing behind the offensive net while the Leafs were trying to forecheck and change lines.  Makes sense.

Also, that's the 3rd time Columbus has run into Reimer in the blue paint.

They do it every. single. time.  The forwards all collapse like that.  It has to be coached.

Keep Reilly, 2 goalies and the first line. Rest can go. Everyone else has vanished or simply stink.

I was thinking the same.  Time to scratch him for a couple and see if that does anything to get him going.  Although whiy it would, I have no idea.

What bothers me about that is nobody doing anything about it except Reimer.

I really don't see what that would do outside of be the breeding ground for some really specious reasoning. Clarkson isn't the reason other players aren't playing well and while I'm open to the idea that someone else could play better than Clarkson, he's not the only problem we're seeing.

I wonder if Reimer is going to have to defend himself all night being run..... no one is standing up for him. No one

Kulemin was a much better player on the Kadri line than Clarkson.

Carlyle can teach defensive positioning any game now.  Has he had enough games?

Nope. He clearly needs at least 2 more seasons.

Yeah. Carlyle isn't skating well tonight at all... Let's blame the coach for the lackluster effort of the players. More yelling on the bench Randy!

What does skating well have to do with them being out of position defensively?  Or have they "not been skating" all season long?

His ice-time doesn't really indicate it tonight, but I think there is an argument that Lupul-Kadri-Kulemin was playing really well until Clarkson came back and got put back on Kadri's line.  Kadri-Clarkson have struggled every time they are paired together.

I think the bigger problem is his lack of professionalism. I mean, the fact that the Leafs carried the play in the first period can't be attributed to the coaching so Carlyle clearly arrived for the game in the first intermission.

Got to be at work on time Randy.
