With Colton Orr out with an injury, it looks like the Leafs are going to roll three lines and only use Frazer McLaren and Jarred Smithson in certain situations. Morgan Rielly will rotate onto a pairing as the seventh defenceman.

GO LEAFS GO.

Can someone remind Jake Gardiner he's free to turn the jets on to skate the puck out of our end? No need to be so nonchalant as often as he is...

Aside from the WTF game the leafs played tonight (totally odd) would anyone here do a Bernier/ Reimer, Franson and a first for Malkin?

There are  doormats every year  ,Sabres and Florida aren't a surprise. But Flyers and Oil are. And Flames in a positive way.

@Doorman @gunner_36 @deedrag Oh haha. I didn't have the time for it. I missed the draft and auto-drafted, and then I would leave my line-up for weeks at a time while my players got injured (some of that was me being forgetful). I remember getting destroyed in the league because I never made changes and other guys were constantly adding free agents and switching goaltenders out when they were on back-up duty.

@deedrag @gunner_36 Also just to make my post clear I don't see Malkin and Kessel having chemistry. I could be totally wrong on this one but something about their games doesn't seem like they would click. I'm no coach though.

@deedrag @gunner_36 No, I don't think he would. Kessel is great with Bozak, so I don't think getting Malkin to make Kessel even greater is necessary. We'd have to grossly overpay for a guy who is terrible defensively, disappears for long stretches, has a massive salary.

@deedrag @gunner_36 I don't think Malkin is nearly as good as people make him out to be, and I don't think he's the right guy for this team.
