Thursday Mashup: Florida Panthers Tonight

Good game day, Leafs fans! After a day off to bask in the glory of beating Tampa Bay Tuesday night, the Leafs are back in action this evening as they host the Florida Panthers. Looking at the bottom 3 teams in the East: the Leafs already lost to these Panthers in December, they’re 1-1 against the Islanders, and the Sabres took six points out of five meetings with the Leafs. There has been no such thing as an easy out for the Leafs this season and as such there should be no reason to take this Panther team lightly. While they most recently got smacked by the Bruins 6-2, the Panthers also put up five goals each in two wins over Detroit and Pittsburgh in the past ten days.

Id like to see one D Man trade that brings in a mobile defensive oriented responsible D Man.  He doesnt have to have much offensive upside and he doesnt have to be a monster, just solid and consistent.

Players have to agree to it. The team can't just send them.

@MikeGartner11 @Mind Bomb Aye thats what I am refering to, I wonder though if he has to be activated from IR in order to assign him to the Marlies, so he will have to be cleared before the Break

Agree. Really surprised by him. Knew he was valued by his other teams but didn't know how smart he is.

I'm not sure I'd feel like getting on a bus to Utica, Hershey and Albany for 15 minutes of ice time if I could be back practicing with my teammates.

I'm the same. His suspension, plus adjustment time then an elbow operation have skewed everything for Clarkson this season.
