Let's be honest about this. If they lose, Leighton sucks. If they win, it's the Leafs throwing softballs at him.
Sad but true. Reputations are impossible to shake.
The likelihood of this happening is practically nil, but even if Leighton wins the Cup this season, he's not going to get any credit. It will be the Flyers' offensive "depth" or some kind of Bobby Clarke conspiracy or both.
No excuses tonight, 2 important points. As bad as not getting a goalie hurts, I'd be crushed if I was a Chicago fan. Huet completely **** the bed against Detroit today. That team with "stable" goaltending is a legit contender. Off topic but someone should text Pierre McGuire and tell him the Olympics are over.
Time for Boucher to get a start? Leafs should be tired after SOing a win against the flu-riddled Senators last night. Richards against Kessel to neutralize and the rest of the roster lights up Giguere (assuming he starts since Gustavsson played last night).
Leaf fan here. Bozak is actually developing real nice, I wouldn't call him crap, but then again I wouldn't expect you to know alot about our team. As for Orr, he may be dirty but Philly has their share too.
As for the game I hope we keep it competitive seeing it is our 2nd game in 2 nights. Not sure who takes it, but goaltending will be key for both teams.
