    Happy Easter weekend MLHS.  Just gotta say,  watching St Louis play after only watching Leaf games this season is a real eye opener - now I get why they were smug when playing the Leafs .....   man they hustle  *thumbs up*

    Watching the blues/hawks play is depressing.   I can't believe the crap hockey I endured watching the leafs this season.

    Chicago has allowed 42 shots in roughly 1.5 games of game time. The Leafs allowed Detroit to get 45 shots in one game. Outside. In a blizzard. In a football stadium.

    Toews just got head-butted...theres my first playoff pool pick looking dazed and confused on the bench...excellent

    How far off are the leafs from playing a system like the Sharks.  The sharks have speed but they are big bodied.

    @barjv01  Clutch but poor coverage twice by Minny too.   Avs are not going to be able to do this against better team.s

    @Hammertownleaffan  Folks complain about Bozak high SH%.  Statsny is another player having  a great year.  Statsny is hands down better defensively though.

    Heck I'm thinking about buying a Petrangelo jersey  .... OK maybe not   lol

    @wiski  I will never forget game 1 against Boston where we dressed both FML and Orr....and proceeded to get absolutely waxed

    @wiski  So, if I understand correctly. Mirtle would like a picture of Quenneville grabbing his crotch? Not the type of thing I'd have tweeted to the universe but that's just me.

    @wendelsfist @FloorHockeyFlopper  Yes Toews  uses his body just as well as Backus,   and Hossa back checking was impressive.  Its a shame the arguably top 2 teams playoff in round 1 ?!?    Awesome game,  just awesome - will be an inspired series -  and Duncan Keith skating to prevent the breakaway he almost gave up -  too many highlights

    @wiski @wendelsfist  Imagine those two playing in triple OT.   I hope both work on their skating stride with Barb Underhill this summer

    @Anthony Petrielli @wendelsfist  The leafs seem to be best suited for hawks system (active d and carrying the puck in,cycling).  The kings are terrible fit for our roster.  The sharks are a blend of kings/hawks - do other see that?

    @~Keon  

    There's some sort of Stastny connection with the Leafs....his father or his uncle or something.  That and I think he's friends with Kessel and someone else (JVR??).  We will definitely be targeting him if he becomes available.

    @Keeon They haven't won anything with him, how would he know?
     (I know its a longshot :)

    $$$$$$$$$ Colorado is stacked at forward can the really afford him?
    O'Reilly-Duchene-McKinnon are all centers

    @wiski @Hammertownleaffan  I've had a hard time following them as they've been so bad the last few years (ironic coming from a guy who watches every Leaf game, sometimes twice). But man, playoff ball is fantastic. I'm gonna get into this.

    @Hammertownleaffan @wendelsfist @Anthony Petrielli  I don't see how the leafs are going to amount to much of a playoff team against the better teams.    The gap between the leafs and these team is huge. And there is no easy way we are getting C talent to match these teams.
