Shark Club Game Day: Maple Leafs at Lightning (7:30 p.m., Leafs TV)

1992

The Leafs are looking to redeem a lame effort in Sunrise with a better showing in Tampa.  

Jonathan Bernier will start for the Leafs, and the team in front of him owes him a better effort. 

A couple of fast teams here, this game could be a track meet. That will suit the Leafs just fine.

So FML was the lone player in the 3:30 range?  Wow, wonder what prompted the change. Orr a little banged up or not feeling well?

Snider: "Anybody that thinks that Claude Giroux doesn’t belong on the Canadian team, they don’t know anything about hockey."

@Jmessih  Loved it. That's the kind of snarl we need from our backend. No one touches our tendys

@Pent_House  I said last year before the Bolland trade that I'd like to see Kule turned into a 3rd line centre.

@Jay31  I think Giroux not showing up at the camp was a big no-no for the team Canada brass.

@Jay31  He was in the conversation for best player in the world last season. Some curious decisions.

@DeclanK @Jay31  Yeah, some headscratchers there. I mean i get Kunitz for the chemistry thing, short tournament blah blah but it still doesnt sit well that we're taking him over someone like Giroux

@rustynail @Shift_Disturber1@Wilbur Yeah, but that is a lot of ice time for FML. He hasn't given him or Orr much in the way of ice time over entire games. Looks like he was on pace to give FML significant minutes tonight.  

Just found it interesting.
