TBH, I couldn't give a crap about being a "tough team". If anything last night proved that having guys like Orr and McLaren in the lineup do very little to prevent your star players from getting rocked. So Lupul, arguably the best forward on the team, gets smashed by two guys at the same time while two behemoths are on the bench prevented nothing. The damage was done even if Orr beats on Hartnell or Rosehill....big deal. Not sure why Carlyle loves to play those tough guys so much. I dont get it. Of course many of you will respond with the standard Don Cherry answers, with players playing taller and all that rhetoric. Skill wins hockey games. The only revenge for that Lupul sandwich was for the Leafs to respond by beating the Flyers who are fighting for their playoff lives. But they didn't and the Flyers are very much alive and Lupul, the hottest player in the NHL will miss how many games?
