It's almost as if the Leafs' insanely compacted schedule through most of October was a legitimate excuse for some of their struggles.

New systems and new personnel all at the same time too. Ceci and Barrie (and Muzzin) are still adjusting to Toronto. And the fanbase expected the same start as last October/November when the Tavares line was shooting like 15+% or whatever (I'm not looking it up).

Road trip coming up for the back half of November so lc9 can remind us how much better the Leafs are without line matching and Matthews can show his new teammates where he dropped trou.


It's just a coincidence that lc9 disappears during winning streaks.

It's funny how this looks so bad despite it containing maybe our best stretch of the season where we went 4-1-1.

Boston has been one of the only good teams early this season. They just lost 3 in a row to Montreal, Detroit, and Philadelphia.

Leafs
1. 5 pts | 5 Points per Segment
2. 7 pts | 6 pps
3. 5 pts | 5.66 pps
4. 5 pts | 1 game to go

Probably a good thing they're going on the road...avoid the "sky is falling" narrative for a couple of weeks.

Man we're brutal lol.

All we have to do is play some sound hockey. Last night it seemed like they were just blowing coverage and cheating on offense. Freddy has to be a bit better but the rest of the team does too. I find it funny that so many fans right now are going off on Babcock for the Leafs trying to implement a more defensive style even though they let in 5 goals last game lol.

Yes but we only have 3 D men that can play D;  Holl, Muzzin and Dermott.  Reilly, Barrie and Ceci don't take the man, they don't close gaps, they don't angle guys into the boards, when have you seen one of them hit someone (never), they only sweep their sticks at opposing players, many of whom can do better stick work like a mafia hitman with a stiletto.  Unless these 3 make the effort to close gaps and take the man, then it's going to be one long season.  Get Reilly off the PK, PLEASE.

He is going to end up being the steal of the three deals.

They really need some good gap control and I mean, I don't want them to go out and check all the time but if you can take the body without losing the play instead of having the attacker dance around you then you should try that once in a while.
