    Leafs could certainly dress seven D tonight with Clarkson out up front. Other option is Frazer McLaren.

  • Belfour20

    5-3 leafs

  • newkb

    TheCanucksnaphook Wonder what the Leafs record is with him in the lineup….

  • Belfour20

    TheCanucksnaphook take it easy pal! Leave my Bernier alone

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ Radar O’Rielly

    Holland is definitely out of his element on that 4th line!  LOL

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    TheCanucksnaphook I want this team to finally step the fuck up! Where’s the team that showed up for LA and Chicago?! I’m tired of this team being outplayed night in and night out and being saved by goaltending

  • B_Leaf

    Islanders in the second game of back to backs tonight have the Leafs right where they want them. 
    Lets watch another display of utter futility, a display of puck avoidance unprecedented in NHL history.
    Go Leafs!

  • vinoa

    Wtf is FML doing in that pic?

  • wendelsway1

    I think the Boys are gonna show up to play tonight….Big Leafs win, in regulation….GO LEAFS GO!!

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ Radar O’Rielly

    wendelsway1 If they don’t show up after that display on Saturday night, they are a lost bunch.

  • B_Leaf

    wendelsway1 

    Yeah, if they lose tonight, you might see a body or two put on planes

  • JR from Halifax

    wendelsway1 Well it can’t be worse than last game right?

  • Loric76

    Murph2417 Loric76 lets hope so

  • wendelsfist

    Loric76 Murph2417   It is going to be Fraser + Frazer + Orr

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    I’d swap Raymond for Kuli. But putting Lupul on the LW

  • B_Leaf

    Murph2417 B_Leaf 

    exactly

  • Loric76

    wendelsfist Loric76 Murph2417 where’s the dislike button when you need it

  • vinoa

    JR from Halifax wendelsway1 Hopefully not but you know our Leafs…just when you think it can’t get any worse

  • wendelsfist

    Murph2417 wendelsfist Loric76 You know it to be true with all your heart.  T

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    B_Leaf Plus they got in very late this morning, that has to be worth a couple of goals at least….right?

  • Uncle Otis

    THIS is a big test tonight to find out what character is in the room
    I predict the Leafs WILL bounce back with the big win,but learning consistent professional dedication seems to be this groups biggest challenge.
    Oh ,and Tim Gleason reminds me of Bob Rouse ..both physically and in play.

  • wendelsfist

    Loric76 wendelsfist Murph2417 And the more you hate it the strong it becomes (new age bhuddist BS)

  • JR from Halifax

    vinoa JR from Halifax wendelsway1 yup…..and the reality is they we SO bad against the Rangers that even a huge improvement could still be a shitty low effort mistake filled game

  • juliesucks

    The_Polish_Cannon Yes. My fav Raymond play is when he circles the net, comes to the blue line and give the puck away in the middle of the ice…that’s gold

    Loric76 Poulin never heard of him

  • vinoa

    Murph2417 vinoa JR from Halifax wendelsway1 Well it’s either that or the truck goes off the cliff. Hoping for the latter as I don’t think I deserve to get hit by a car for the Leafs’ troubles lol

    Looking forward to a Taverez sandwich in between slices of Phaneuf and Gleason!

  • B_Leaf

    Murph2417 B_Leaf 

    Who knows, but this team is getting awfully hard to watch…I don’t think I have been so disinterested in my life. Unfortunately for me that’s still interested.  :(

  • The_Polish_Cannon

    What I find funny was that Carlyle said their was going to be changes to the lineup after how they played on saturday. But all he did was promote D’amigo to the 3rd line and bring McLaren in because of clarkson’s injury. And also bringing in Gleason in Gunnars spot

  • newkb

    Uncle Otis Rouse was one tough ginger to play against….

  • Alec Brownscombe

    Loric76 At least there seems to be a recognition Fraser just isn’t an NHLer anymore.

  • lukethenuke

    Last game has left me with a very sour taste and lack of interest in tonights game… really sad, but I may find myself watching Toronto’s team, the Raptors! haha

  • Loric76

    wiski Loric76 he was in net last time Leafs played the Isle…we won 5-2

  • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Loric76 So, rolling 3 lines then. Great.

  • wendelsfist

    The_Polish_Cannon I was thinking Carlyle would call up Staubitz

  • newkb

    juliesucks The_Polish_Cannon He’s perfecting it this season…

  • Uncle Otis

    newkbUncle Otis
    You know he was…ask Wendel.
    Lets hope Gleason can bring the same.

  • juliesucks

    newkbUncle Otis Rouse & Lefebvre were rocks

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ Radar O’Rielly

    Might see Kadri and Holland flip flop throughout the night depending on how they play.

  • JR from Halifax

    juliesucks The_Polish_Cannon I much prefer when he turns back 5 feet inside the blue and throws the puck to nobody in the middle of the ice. I mean, I see where you are coming from…..but this was is a more efficient turnover

  • newkb

    Uncle Otis newkb Yeah, he handed Wendel his lunch in that fight.  Remember it very clearly…

  • Loric76

    Alec Brownscombe Loric76 not this year at least.  we’ll see if they give him another shot in the fall

  • B_Leaf

    Ugh! Leafs#!?*
