Ugh, brutal finish to a frustrating game.

Yeah, but that 3- or 4-minute sequence there at the end was pretty exciting.

You know when you suck it seems like you run into some hot goalies a lot, but the reality is your team has little finish.

Recently they've run into Miller, Johnson, Dubnyk, Ward and Varlamov who have all been scorching and they've ruined some pretty good outings by this talented Leafs team.

I still think they're better than the standings reflect for now.

I agree and once this team matures some the goals will start to go in. In the mean time you have to admit this is a fun team to watch.

I think the best way they can add offense at this point is upgrades on the back end. Gardiner is separating himself as the best offensive D man on the team; and probably the best overall - and ideally, he's a #3.

I'm not so sure. They're more talented, sure, but in terms of the quality of their performances, most of the underlying numbers point to a team that has neither been particularly lucky or unlucky overall. Their record is probably right around where it should be.

Agreed.  At the moment their d is made up of 3 #3's and 3 #7's.  For a rush team... other than gardiner no one can make a stretch pass

Solid debut for Bibeau.  Good for him.  Keep on improving.

There were a ton of high danger scoring chances the Leafs had.

Varlamov made up for his Saturday stinker.

Oh well, back to an 82 point pace for the time being.

I was able to only go on sunday before noon and there was no GDT but what I was going to say is I was not going to watch the game , as col got it handed to them the night before, and for the most part teams most often do a bounce back from games like that. I would have bet the farm on a leaf loss. But just the same 52 shots, WOW!!!

So in your opinion neither Carrick or Marincin are top 6 dmen and both should regularly be in the press box?

Frankly yes...in the last year and a half both their former teams gave up on them.  I mean Marincin couldn't crack the Oilers D!!! and was given away, and Carrick was a throw in to get toronto to take Laich.

If the Leafs had better options neither would be getting a sniff,  in my opinion both are fill in guys for injuries on a good team
