You know I will take the win. This is the type of game we gave away last year, this year not so much. rest up boys and come back refreshed.

It was just running through my mind how poor of a puck handler is and then his D pulls a Steve Smith

Man he must think the Hockey Gods have it in for him

Gardiner looked good tonight, but man do I ever miss the version of him from last May

So part of the ongoing analysis of Rielly, how are people feeling about him staying beyond 9 games?

Really looking forward to seeing Clarkson with Lupul & Kadri. We're gonna have 2 great lines.

Call it bitterness, call it poor sportsmanship, its just weird that a team like Edmonton that followed the Pittsburgh and Chicago model keeps losing and a team like Toronto keeps winning. I guess it is bitterness, but I'm just sick and tired of hearing how talented Edmonton is.. It takes more than top three pick goal scorers to win in hockey. Team game and a Team win tonight. Glad it didn't go to shootout

I can see why Carlyle has love hate relationship with Kadri. Kadri snipes one, does a great Gretzky imitation setting up Lupul , then when the game is 4-4 late in the 3rd , turns the puck over at the blue line and its 5-4 Oilers.

While I'm not cheering for the Cunucks I'm sure hoping they win. Unfortunately, Price looks like he's really on his game.

Hard to believe, but the Edmonton Perfect Rebuilds are a year and a third older than the Leafs team who are the second youngest in the NHL right now.  Yet, somehow, they lost to the more 'experienced' Leafs team.  

Sometimes, it pays to have smart players who actually give a shit, Edmonton.

It slays me that Cody Franson called HIMSELF out.  Jesus.  He's come a long way since being in Wilson's dog house.  Saying that he hung his teammates out to dry, no less a rookie like Rielly, is unheard of.  I fucking love this team.  

Now bag-skate the shit out of the team, Carlyle.

No secret they need better d and goaltending. Toronto grabbed other teams 1st rounders and added in their own, seems to be working.

@Zep2  I thought it was Lupul at first. But yeah it was kadri.  Poor rielly was hung out to dry on that turnover.

Wilbur

@Zep2 Yup. Exactly what I said to my dog. He was the only one willing to listen at the time :) But Kadri is young. He'll mature as a player and we'll see less and less of that.

Phaneuf was sloppy tonight and he looked disengaged. He coughed up the puck a few times, and missed a few passes that were either off the mark or too soft and put his players in a tough position. Gunner should have had the man in front on that Hall tip in. Reilly was way out on the second Smyth goal. It's good that he can get up and then charge back, but it puts Franson in an awkward position of having to give his man way too much space until Morgan does get back.

@dlb eh This was certainly not Dion's best game of the year as he had a handful of poor give-aways or bad passes but he was still very good tonight. I think the MSM is trying to stir stuff up for trade rumours etc...

mORRganRielly
mORRganRielly

@dlb eh He had a couple of hiccups.  One on the powerplay trying to move the puck and he got turnstiled by Hall -- which is going to happen to most defensemen anyway.  

He was okay, but not great IMO.  Gunnarsson kind of made it hard for him too.

@dlb eh Phaneuf was awesome tonight, as he has been all season.

@CanuckUKinToronto Thats how the Oil play.  Throw D to the wind and cherry pick.  Tough to keep the game  in control with guys waiting all night just outside  your blue line.

TuckerForPunishment

@mORRganRielly These guys know when they have off nights and know exactly what needs to be done about it.  The "dads" and their "tough love" here at MLHS know diddly squat compared to these pro's.

@Wilbur @Zep2 Thats why i stopped listening to MSM ranting about Carlyle ruining Kadri and Gardiner

They make mistakes , he lets them know. Make too many, your ice time goes down

@TuckerForPunishment I think it's okay to be critical.  Depends on the context.  Context is everything.  But tonight, he was bad.  Oddly, I thought Ranger had another up and down game, but the analytics said he had a better than I thought -- significantly better game. 

He was dominant at 5 on 5 if you take any stock in possession numbers.  

Lescott

He over played it. To be fair, most players probably would have been forced to the outside there by the guy in the centre slot, but Eberle made a nice play.

The concessions... Get your peanuts!

Franson was sloppy too, though.

@DWCMLHS @dlb eh I agree Gunnar is a top 4 Dman. I just wish he were a top 4 Dman on another team ;)

DWCMLHS

@dlb eh @DWCMLHS Gunnarsson is a far better skater and puck-mover. His positioning is better, too. Fraser is just more physical. Gunnarsson is a top-4 Dman. Fraser is ideally a #7.

@dlb eh @mORRganRielly It was Franson that had the rough night.  Riley was along for the minus ride, they were on the ice for at least 4 goals against but Riley was OK.  Then Franson makes up for everything assisting on the winning goal.

mORRganRielly

@dlb eh Gunnarsson looks bad right now.  I have been trying to track his body language, but the thing I have noticed the most is that his hip rotation is slow -- because of that, his mobility has suffered.  I don't know.  I noticed it a handful of times so far this season and it's bugging me.

@dlb eh @DWCMLHS Radio callers are usually stupid. The hosts might just be having a bad day or something, lol. Phaneuf played 25 minutes tonight, had 2 assists, and was solid all-around. He had a very good game.
