Goodnight all. Nothing good can come of discussing the shit show that was tonight's game

There is a plus to this though, Smith, Smithson and Holland are starting to look like they provided chemistry for the other lines.

Bloody embarrassing loss. We will see where this goes . Frankly I have no idea what to expect from this team next

Carlyle basically said it was mind boggling that after a day off they didn't seem to have the energy to keep pace.

blue and white disease creeping back into the Toronto maple leafs who have not played a solid 60 minutes all season

RC holding off on speaking his mind about the Dion penalty

I still don't get why RC didn't call a time out after the second goal. It seems he hasn't learned from his past experiences like the game 7 melt down. Like come on, what good are timeouts if you don't use them. I'm starting to question what RC is doing lately. I thought he would've put Bernier in tonight and let Reimer play on Wednesday. Whatever happened to, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. They fixed the problems they were having and now the chemistry is fucked up. I thought RC was gonna play those that deserve it. This is going to be a long week.

Someone talk me off the ledge…I'm at the point where I'm happy with Dion and Rielly on D and that's it. Maybe Gunnar in a lower pairing.

@Burtonboy But he'll be penalized anyway. Nice job as always NHL referees.

@Burtonboy They're not playing well and the results WILL start to reflect that. This isn't a comment about corsi or any of that other BS. It's based on the fact that we get outplayed all the time by teams we consider inferior.

@deedrag I agree about the timeout...but starting Bernier tonight after Reimer's performance on Saturday would have been ridiculous.

@Wilbur @astrit07 I hate to rip the team but love the leafs hate when is no effort  l live and die for the leafs

@djamon @Burtonboy As far as I'm concerned there was a huge mistake made when JVR was put at center . The first line went cold and I said even when Holland showed up I was concerned it would take a while to straighten it out . That line is still not right because of it and its going to be a few more games yet before it sorts itself out . I hated the move when it happened and I'm hating it even more now

@djamon @deedrag I understand he won the game but he did face 50+ shots (shootout shots also). We got 2 great goal tenders he should use them like that.
