Well, looks like the Sens will take this one now. Missing on the PP killed the Jets momentum. Anderson really bailed his team out.

Staubitz took a beating from Malone while Devane gave one to a Monster player.

Game has gotten out of hand in the last couple of minutes.  Maggio, Ross, and a bunch of others all in a big wrestling match.EDIT  Ross was on the bench jawing with a Monster player on the other bench,   Could have gotten worse.

Jets look like they'll make this game interesting. Feels like only a matter of time before they score.

@OTL Can't reply to you for some reason. Maybe you need an account?

Broll with a bit of retaliation, but the linesmen got in right away.

Clarkson out with an injury tonight?

So many of the Marlies forwards are impressive.

Biggs and Broll both have size, speed, and touch. Leivo with big-league time and space.

Lake Erie really running Gibson in the TO net.   Time for some retaliation.

Forgive me if it's been stated already, but is Bolland back in the lineup?

Not an emergency recall

Hope_Smoke @Hope_Smoke 25m

…he was only demoted so the team had as much cap room as possible for the deadline & was immediately recalled after. McLaren was also…

Hope_Smoke @Hope_Smoke 25m

…told directly from Claude Loiselle (Leafs assistant GM) why he was being demoted and that it would be a very short-term issue.

Just comparing Morgan Rielly to say someone like Seth Jones (both first year in the league)... Rielly has 3 less points but less ice time..

He also is -12 but what is going unnoticed is that he really improved after he learned the speed of the NHL.  In the last 30 games (more than half of his season played of 55 games) he is only -1  ... also he gets a point every 48 min TOI.


Seth Jones is -23... his point total is 23 (3 points more) but points for TOI is 62 mins.. Rielly way out performing him.

Also Jones in his last 30 games (half a season)  is -12... 


Rielly is a gem..

CBC prepping the script for tonight - Giroux the greatest player in the world rolling into Toronto with the hottest team in the league. Leafs stand no chance.

I wonder if Leivo will get a few games beside Lupul and Kadri so that Kulemin can play with Bolland

Hey guys...Leivo with a hat trick so far today...6 shots...he has been playing very well

@Reversethecurse13  I like Broll better, I'd like to see Biggs do more, but hasn't done much offensively when I watch.

@Optimustic they definitely have the horses down there to play a very rough game

Nevermind, saw that they hope he'll play by the end of the road trip.

@CanuckUKinToronto  Jones with a little better quality of competition though, I think. The two who are out-performing Rielly are Maatta and Trouba.

I think Leivo would help the PP...good hands big body on the wall...good shot

@B_Leaf Makes you wonder what he could do with 5 minutes a night with the big club

@Optimustic @Reversethecurse13  yea it's tough to evaluate in a game where Jarred Smithson is looking good.

I think Biggs plays with Devane and Kenny Ryan. But he definitely does not play with skill guys.

But i should say that i don't see either of them (Broll or Biggs) playing top 6 in the NHL. But rather, their ceiling being high end 3rd liners. And you can put D'Amigo in with them too, but i think he's got more skill (and speed).


Got a good one in Leivo, though.

In cockney rhyming slang "ginger" is a banned term.  I presume you know NOT of what I speak????  :)

@4evrblue @B_Leaf  He's better served working on his game in the AHL than go through the constant crap of being a Leaf 4th liner. Is it safe to say that he could potentially replace Lups in our top 6?

Cameron19

@CanuckUKinToronto @Cameron19  Yep, and I agree he has. I always point out that his minuses mostly came a lot earlier in the season.  Just saying, there are other factors consider with other players. Jones has been on the top pair for long stretches, and the Preds have also been without their starting goalie all year. So the direct comparison with Rielly isn't wholly fair to him.

@CanuckUKinToronto @Cameron19  

he was also incredibly unlucky to start the year.... our goalies would let in weak goals or someone would have a brutal turnover he couldn't do anything about
