good luck tomorrow
 
just stopping by to say good luck tomorrow you guys are going to be a big test especially when we don't have Frattin or Reimer

DaveG 02-13-2013 01:06 PM

How long is Reimer supposed to be out for anyway? Hopefully not too long, it's always more entertaining seeing others foam at the mouth about Toronto having a competitive team

totalkev 02-13-2013 01:33 PM

I'm sorry, but I'm not ready to deal with excuses like "we're missing Frattin and Reimer" from Leafs fans. Not exactly Crosby and Fleury, are they?

As for the Canes, I'm still in wait-and-see mode. Obviously, it's nice to be where we are after 8 of our first 12 on the road. But we're a .500 team at home with crappy special teams, a patchwork defense, and nary a point inside the division we're winning by two points.

Sorry, but I just don't think we should plan the parade yet. And actually, the Leafs game is a big test. Coming off a long roadie against an average team playing without two key players has "trap" written all over it. A good team will still find a way to win. We shall see if we're a good team.

Having said all that, I think it would be fun to see how long we can hold the division lead without a single point against division teams. We only play three of the final seven February games inside the division, so we can go 4-3 and probably still lead the division with 23 points on March 1. After that, we're actually going to have to beat a division rival, I'd think.

Not meant as an excuse at all I'm actually looking forward to it in a way next 5-8 games could show what kind of depth we have.

The Canes will start Ellis and Dalpe just to even things up.

sarcasm? or is ellis playing?

DaveG 02-13-2013 02:59 PM

Luke's (or was it Chip?) dropped a hint that Dalpe's going to play, and it's likely that Ellis could get the start after 4 games off, even though the result of that 4 game stretch was 7 points for the Canes.

Gotta Catch Em Staal 02-13-2013 03:00 PM

I don't really see why Ellis would start with the next game not being for four days and Cam coming off such a strong performance.

I smell a "Time to start Ellis - Part Three" thread...!

I agree....I doubt Ellis plays.

Boom Boom Anton 02-13-2013 03:16 PM

But it is likely that Sanguinetti will be in for Joni.

How dare you not mention Dwyer when referring to goal scorers. I am offended.

Blueline Bomber 02-13-2013 04:29 PM

I actually think now's the perfect time to start Ellis. Ward was strong during the road trip, time to give him an extended rest period. Start Ellis on Thursday, then Ward against the Habs next week.

Lazyking 02-13-2013 04:50 PM

If Ellis doesn't start tomorrow then why is he our backup? Especially in this short season, Ward is gonna need a break, Thursday is the perfect time.

If not, his next start won't be for another 10 days when we have our next back to back.

Also funny how Kev brings up no points in the division yet we've only played 2 games in the division. Talk about small sample size.

To the OP, you're like the only leafs fan I know that would post such a thread lol.

LEAFANFORLIFE23 02-13-2013 05:13 PM

is joni playing I got a buddy that has him in his pool

Lazyking 02-13-2013 05:16 PM

not likely. he has a lower body injury.

LEAFANFORLIFE23 02-13-2013 05:22 PM

well then Iguess we both have some key injuries

What the Faulk 02-13-2013 06:16 PM

Pitkanen is officially out, yeah.

Also Ellis starting tomorrow would mean Ward goes 6 days between starts. I'd rather Ellis be the one with massive time off like that.

He could always practise against our PP

Metro Misfits 02-13-2013 07:04 PM

Wish I was going to be there.

Leafs are one of my favorite teams (Next to the Canes of course)

I have always had a great time talking with Leafs fans in person.

CanadasTeam 02-13-2013 07:22 PM

Hey Canes fans. I'm in charge of the GDT tomorrow and wonder if somebody would kindly provide me the lineup for tomorrow's game?

cheers :)

edit: could this be it?

Tlusty - E. Staal - Semin
Skinner - J. Staal - Dwyer
Bowman - Jokinen - LaRose
Wallace - Brent - Westgarth

Pitkanen - McBain
Faulk - Gleason
Harrison - Sanguinetti

Ward
Ellis

I'm the GDT guy here tomorrow, so I'm working on this as we speak.

Your forward lines are probably correct, or close enough. I'm just going to assume we'll be skating Westy and Wallace with Brent, and Nodl is the scratch.

Pitkanen was described as "likely out" tomorrow by Muller, so D pairings will be something close to:

Gleason - Faulk
Corvo - Sangs
Harrison - McBain

No official word on Ward & Ellis yet of course, but I'm leaning toward Ward.
