Lets not start with that yet..we might all be thinking it (heck, I think it every game of the season) but to hear it out there in the open is just silly at this point.
Bubbles shakes his head at me too.
The Leafs always need a win. Obviously they won't always win, but it's nice to see. I just think a win on the first Saturday night game of the year against a strong team like the Caps would be good, that's all. Especially since the Leafs should have won last night, in my opinion.
It's not as if the season is over if they lose, I wasn't trying to imply that.
I'm not sure about others, but I would prefer it if we can have our GDT earlier this season rather the just before the game. That way it's easier to talk about the upcoming game, and continue on when the game does get going.
That being said, cannot wait to see Ovechkin play this game. It's going to be tough and huge challange for the Leafs to contain him this early in the season. A tough way for the D to rebound from the last game! :p
7-1 caps...Hopefully Im wrong but I have a feeling toskaLOL will HAVE A BREAKDOWN and will be pulled after 1st period...7-0 after first because of softies from TOSKALOL...I really hope the leafs fight hard and get a huge victory in this one .. that'll definitely boost there confidence going into the next game. PLEASE TOSKALAFF DONT SCREW UP.

1: The defense shapes up 100 percent, because they all [but Kaberle] sucked yesterday. I honestly think it was opening night jitters (one should hope).
2: Toskala, as decent as he was, needs to step it up and not be the "One Goal a Game" Goaltender. As much as the defense sucked two of those goals he needed to have and we would have had 2 points. If he had stopped one, totally different game.
3: More quality shots. It is well and good to have 45 shots on goal, but if they are at the chest of the goaltender, very rare to get the rebound. just shoot, and rush the net.
4: More passing, less puck hogging. You know who you are, GRABO and BLAKE.
5: Speaking of Blake - for God sakes, please, stop acting as if you wanted to be on Battle of the Blades with that spin and shoot thinger. Just... pass it normally.
6: Less turnovers
That's about it
And this is one really nice GDT, and I agree - it's nice to talk about it a day or two earlier, and then go into depth on game day
