If Scott gets his butt handed to him early, Leafs have this game in the bag (and tomorrow too). My 2 cents before I take off for the game :)

At least Ashton on the 4th line. Like what he brings. Great board work.

Don' t panic In case Toronto loose tonight. Any thing expect to happen on that ice.

In all seriousness, we saw an awful game on Monday and they could have let that slide them into a multi-game skid...instead against the Pens they came out strong (well, after the first few minutes lol), and held out until the refs took over.  I think (hope!) they're going to come on fire tonight and kick the living crap out of the Sabre's both physically and on the scoresheet.

@DeclanK he goes 100% on every shift, and the second he gives less than 100% he gets sent down...Nonis clearly sending a message to the kid about how he has to play if he wants to be an NHL regular

@Jmessih Its funny, the way they've been playing Ranger deserves 2nd pairing. Fraser Franson is more scary for our fans than Sabres on the 2nd unit.

@Jmessih Oh god that looks horrendous. Thank fuck we have Phaneuf.

@Loric76 Fuck that. Reilly has looked great in my opinion. Wasn't it the case last home and home that we lost with Reilly in the press box and won when he was on the bench?

@Loric76 Hey I always watch the opening game of the spengler assuming there is nothing else on and I'm not doing anything. Boxing Day...living in Canada is awesome

@Loric76 Honestly I think it is too bad Reimer played in the 'Bus since either goalie would have been chased, and Reims owns the Penguins. I think we would have beat them with him in net.
EDIT: but obviously he deserved the start after Washington.

@BPsotka @Loric76 it's retarded...just like last time.  Only thing I can think of is RC trying to protect the kid

Nope... because if anything happens to Orr then we'll need him.

@reenergized @Cameron19 Yea, I don't think the loss of so many key players can be overlooked here - nor can our record despite the problems.

@Loric76 @BPsotka That's what I was wondering. Else he wants anybody who can fight on the ice, but after last time I'd say that is not the case.

@GreekGod @MaxwellHowe The enforcer era is ending quickly.  McLaren is just a magnet for penalties.  And who on Boston or LA might be characterized as just a goon or enforcer?

@GreekGod @ingy56 @Jmessih For sure the league does. The ten minute misconducts are stupid but they keep happening. If the NHL wants it out make a rule...but the players wont let them. Coaches are also adjusting. All the more reason for us to. Orr will be fine alone

@GreekGod @Jmessih Let broll give it a try. If Holland and Smith can get by replacing bozie and kadri I think Broll could cover Orr's contribution
