323

Troy Bodie has been sent down to the Marlies. Colton Orr returns. Jonathan Bernier starts.

Paul Ranger is expected to step in for John Michael Liles (not confirmed).

Will it be two points in our stockings or a lump of coal? GO LEAFS GO.

    Has there been any discussion on here about the possibility of the Leafs trading for Dan Girardi yet?

    I’m not saying there are any rumours out there, but he is a pending free agent and I think he’d be a solid stay-at-home righty to play with Rielly on the third pairing.

    Got a team struggling at home tonight, they would be smart to come out hard and fast and get the jump on the Rangers.

  • Cameron19

    .JVR.  I’d say it’s more likely Marc Staal is available. Only 3 points in 30 games, -7, and getting under 20 minutes a game. Girardi is getting 24 minutes a night now, so they probably see him as being pretty important to get resigned.

    Cameron19.JVR. wonder if Carolina will go sniffing around for Marc lol

  • rustynail

    Cameron19 .JVR. no thanks to Stall

  • 4evrblue

    rustynailCameron19.JVR. can’t recall a player you have ever said you would trade for Rusty lol

    ingy56 They would but they have not done that all season…

  • wiski

    ingy56 so we spot them a 2 goal lead then 😉

  • Cameron19

    rustynail Cameron19 .JVR. Yea, I think I agree.  Just saying, if I were them, I’d look at moving him first.  I think he’s big time damaged goods.  Huge risk/reward scenario there – assuming you have to give up something significant for him.

  • Cameron19

    Jmessih Poor Rielly.

  • Knights2Leafs

    Last night the NYR player with the least amount of TOI was Chris Krieder with 11:22.

    Wonder how many minutes Orr sees tonight.

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Cameron19 .JVR. Haven’t seen much of Marc in a while. Injury troubles out the wazoo, right? Would you be happy to have him, Cam?

    wiski ingy56 Leafs are always good at breaking slumps…for the other team.

    Carlyle “Kadri already thinks he’s a #1 C in the NHL”
    Kadri “Carlyle thinks Jay McClement is a #1 C in the NHL”

  • Dreamsof67

    Knights2LeafsCarlyle’s insistence that his team be a 3 line is one of the ways in which I’m convinced he’s simply prehistoric, stuck in his ways, not innovative, not suited to the job

  • lieffan

    wiski  The less funny but actually accurate version of the joke
    Kadri “Carlyle thinks Jay McClement is his most reliable center defensively when Bolland and Bozak are both hurt”

  • JWaterdrager

    Cameron19 Jmessih Cam the bullying teacher

  • Cameron19

    Alec Brownscombe Cameron19 .JVR. Yea, I don’t think he’s really recovered from back-to-back lengthy injuries.  And I never thought he was as good as the media did to begin with. To me he was always like a slightly more competent Gunnarsson.

  • Cameron19

    @Dreamsof67 Knights2Leafs It would probably be fine if our top nine was healthy. As it is right now, we kind of need that 4th line to help out and not just be a goon squad.

  • Knights2Leafs

    I see RC as Lupul back at RW again tonight.

  • 4evrblue

    Cameron19Alec Brownscombe.JVR. getting slapped around by Semin doesn’t look good on a guy I might add

  • lieffan

    Knights2Leafs well he could never play LW in the NHL 😉

  • wendelsway1

    wiski LOL…I thought that was funny as hell……I remember watching Kadri back in his Jr Knight days…don’t think confidence has ever been an issue with this kid…..and that’s not a bad thing IMO.  Always hated playing those London teams at tournaments.  :)

  • Savo43

    Jmessih Where the fuck is Liles and why is Ranger in? Damnit Carlyle =

  • wiski

    Fraser and Liles officially scratched for https://twitter.com/search?q=%23leafs&src=hash. Orr returns and Bernier starts.

    Liles indeed scratched with Ranger back in.

  • lieffan

    wendelsway1 wiski you can tell it bugs randy quite a bit.. He brings up Naz’s overconfidence a lot. Kadri is a gamer though and he can take harsh but fair treatment
    Wilson I think (PPP’s hero) was much less direct open and honest with Naz, barely played him and left him in the dark as to why

  • wiski

    GO

    Why is Vancouver such bad luck every year for our Leafs? I swear everytime we come here the season goes to shits. Heres to hoping for our 1st regulation win since Calgary tonight.

    I think real time updating is down.

    Man its tough as always to get a shot thru to the net against the RAGS

    Great play by Gardiner there. Fantastic.  who gave that puck away in the corner? Idiot

  • Alec Brownscombe

    We are outskating them and putting on a passing clinic but need to get more on net
    Also, that Bernier deflection into the crowd was more of an intentional delay of game than 95% of the clearances over the glass lol
