sucks alot that the refs lost us this game according to many of you, but so did the team. they could have stood up and NOT let those stupid ref mistakes change the outcome of the game, but they didnt. it isn't like the refs called a goal that didn't happen or anything. Every goal the Leafs scored they earned. Bottom line. Whether they earned it from the refs, our defense, or Leighton/Ward.

**** I was at this game last night and my god...

Seidenenberg is a worthless sack of ****, that guy was noticeably bad every time he was on the ice and was responsible for at least 1 goal that I seen.

So how badly did the refs screw you guys? Don't feel too bad, it happens to everyone when you play in Toronto and it's HNIC. They did everything they could to screw the Flyers a few games ago (we didn't get a PP until midway through the 3rd, compared to the Leafs 5), but they fortunately still won.

How many times did Jason Blake run your goalie? I saw at least one during the 3rd, during the 'live look in' that VS. does after their game is finished. He did it to Niittymaki multiple times, and it's one of the main reasons he came away with a black eye from Steve Downie.

Looks like even Luke is greatly pissed off. He usually stays neutral.

Leighton has no idea why he was pulled.

Lavi provides with an explanation that has no logic behind

“To change it up, Wardo went in there,” Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette said. “I felt like, at the time, if we could close the door in the third period we’d win the game. We scored four. We didn’t close the door.”

• Pretty short bench for this one.

Wade Brookbank didn’t play after taking a tripping penalty on his first shift, going knee-to-knee with Darcy Tucker. Andrew Ladd played only 2:04 in the first period and 1:58 in the second period. Jeff Hamilton played 1:05 in the first period and 1:31 in the second.

That’s your fourth line.

Meanwhile, what would be any other team’s fourth line played 9-11 third-line minutes at even strength: 11:46 for Chad LaRose, 9:01 for Trevor Letowski and 10:09 for Craig Adams. (Their total ice time was inflated by their penalty-killing duty.)

That line was a combined minus-5 on the night. It is now impossible to refute the argument that any changes to this team need to include bringing in players to fill fourth-line roles who can contribute more than the current group.

I wish we could get Luke to post here. I think he would fit in well.

Not to mention until this season, I found him to be an embarrassment (kick save anyone?) as a writer and I was constantly shaking my head at him. I think he has really evolved as a great beat writer for the Canes.

Any changes also need to include a solid #1 d-man. We need to free up our forwards.

anyone have any idea why I can't seem to access his blog now? it says something about a MySQL error. no idea what that means.

but yeah I noticed when reading that last night (before I couldn't seem to get on it) that he sounded really ticked. and so he should be. like all of us.

what happened to seidenberg? he's like any young(ish) player - he'll have bouts of great play followed with...well...last night. because of the D situation Lavi's forced to rely on whoever is hot at the moment (or whoever is less cold) and combine that with Seidenberg's confidence issues, it's a recipe for last night. watch what happens when we get a D-man or two who can actually play - Gleason and Seidenberg and even Wallin are going to look a LOT better. they're just being relied on to do more than they consistently can right now.

Apparently Seids is playing on a hurt ankle, which I imagine might really limit his mobility. Given his play up until this point in the season, which has been pretty good, I'm willing to say that his ankle has something to do with his performances these past few games. Hopefully they'll rest him and he'll come back with more consistency.
