A healthy Lupul and Frattin would fuel an ever greater offensive attack as well, and the emergence of Kadri helps strengthen the offense further as he is carrying the team on many nights now as its youngest player.

Leafs are beginning to give the Bruins all they can handle and gap has been narrowed significantly by the new image, and system under Carlyle.
Line ups last night with TOI.

I really think Lupul and Frattin would have brought enough to even out the talent level. It would have taken some pressure off Kessel at the same time.

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
