I agree with Button this morning !!  Says we need a 2 and a 3 D-man, until we do.....we wont be winning much.

No great mystery why Leafs blueline isn't producing goals and/or shots on goal. Toronto's D gets zero zone time and is always defending.

Good Game Day Morning....great day to be a Leafer.  Any team is capable of beating any team on any given night.......I'm thinking it's time for the Leafs to turn things around with a big win tonight.......GO LEAFS GO!!!

Leafs win it 4-3.   All the haters can leave right now....


edit: and it would appear by the lack of comments here that everybody is a hater.

I'm sure the HBO cameras wish they were there for the Pittsburg game. Lot's of drama and story lines in that one.. I wonder how the cameras will effect everyone. ref,s coaches, broadcast personalities, Owners, management.  I think they will all act differently, not just the players.

@TheCanucksnaphook Don't even need that. Gunnar and Dion are fine. Gardiner is the only other player playing like an NHL Dman(except for Rielly), and that's only sometimes. We just need a competent bottom pairing.

@The Truth Hurts The Leafs increase their tempo to match a top notch team, RC finds lines that click, D comes together and the Leafs get some desperately needed confidence.  5-2.  Kadri with a hat trick.

@loomx Yeah...I was just thinking that.  Where is Loomx to shoot down what Craig Button has to say about the Leafs.

@Mind Bomb @mcloki if they filmed the officiating in Pittsburg, they will see the blind-dog WWE ref's...and Leafs the victims of a conspiracy...its early, gotta stir things up...:)

@TheCanucksnaphook @loomx The way Fraser's been playing, yes. We'd be dumping Liles+ for Gleason. He gets paid 125k more but 1. if he returns to form he's more useful and 2. his buyout is actually cheaper.

@TheCanucksnaphook @loomx Yep, ideally you'd have Gunnar-Dion, Gardiner-shutdownD, Rielly-shutdown D. Swapping for Gleason would be a start.

@mindbomb   Great in theory....who the hell is protecting this kid on our team?

@TheCanucksnaphook @loomx  Let the kid grow insulated with Veteran D men, that can help goom and coach him, give him protected minutes for a few years.

@The Truth Hurts a third line C on a cup winning team.. good in his own zone and chips in offensively. Don't sell what he does short.
