1. Countless odd man opportunities against.
2. Dreadful defense.
3. Bad breakouts vs. the trap.
4. Turnovers at the blueline.
5. Soft on the puck.
6. Too fancy offensively. Trying to pass it in the net.
7. Barely shooting (18 shots while chasing the lead the whole game).
8. Lupul hurt.
9. Outworked by lowly ‘Lumbus for the 2nd time.
10. Poor Reimer.

No sense in picking out individuals from the pile. This was the Leafs‘ first real “blowout” of the season. How will they respond?

    djamon ..but don’t call him injury prone!

    MLHS_Luke When you’re prone to injury I think you can be called injury prone. It’s time to call him what he is…fragile.
    Frankly, I thought he’d been hurt 6 games ago. He’s been invisible.

    100% agree (was being sarcastic).  Anyway, the Leafs have wasted enough of my time tonight..

    Carlyle smiles fucking once in the post game presser, I am going to jump off my roof!!!

    These are grown men playing the game they love. I blame the players 100% for this. They need to get there heads out of there asses. It’s embarrassing. Refs should also be embarrassed for calling a penalty on Phaneuf for that hit. Clean as a whistle.

    One thing that bothers me is that we are slipping back into the coaches favourite kind of team Wilson had
    Rielly sits out for Ranger / Fraser
    Ranger sits out for Fraser
    Someone sits out for McClaren
    Leiwickes son in law makes the roster . WTF

    Leafs only allowed 22 shots against this game. Greatly improved on that front.
