Gotta love how everyone panics after a few bad games. Dion's been better than Phil this year, but just because there aren't enough good pieces surrounding them, doesn't mean you get rid of them. When you play in your zone the whole night, the D is eventually going to get worn down, particularly by the size and talent of the Rangers top line. This isn't Dion's fault that the offence couldn't get the puck in the Rangers zone, or keep it there for sustained periods.

Look, our team just isn't good enough yet to compete against the big boys. We've got some nice pieces, Kadri has been playing great, and that is a good sign for the future. We've seen good things out of JvR, Lupul, Kadri, Grabovski, Kulemin, Komarov... Bozak has played well for who he is, can't really fault him for effort. However, Bozak isn't a legit #1C.

With Lupul out, and a lack of a #1C, we are too easy to shut down right now.

I know it isn't fun watching our Leafs get beaten like that, but I really don't know how people expected things to be any different this year. A couple of good results and all of the sudden people forget the team we actually have.

...and really, Mike Kotska as a #2 D? No disrespect to the guy, he's playing his heart out, but it looks like a tank move.

Not winnin' for MacKinnon...LOL
