I was watching RDS. Did CBC give Bourque any credit for his goal?
It was called a lucky bounce.

Where was Rene's dad?!!

No amazing hand eye coordination breakdown?

No attributing a breakaway pass to Bourque when really it was Cole?

Randy should have benched Eller why the weck did he have to score the 3rd goal? Should not have been on the ice the first leaf goal was all his fault even tough he was on the bench.

I remember Healy was talking about the Habs dump and chase doesn't work because of all their small forwards. I mean, I agree about the dump and chase not working well most of the time, but we have what, three forwards under 6 feet tall now?

We are more physical against the Leafs tonight. One of the main reason why we come up with the win.

In the world of hockey reputation is truth, and it takes some time for it to catch up to reality.

He was on the ice and it actually sort of was his fault, he didn't cover for Gorges' pinch.

Randy seems to be learning some.

I actually looked up and I was fairly surprised that all off Turris's 13 points came on ES this season since I always thought of him as a guy who would be more of a PP producer than an ES one but I have to admit I haven't seen him much so that's more things I've heardh. Although I don't know if he is getting soft opposition and who his linemates are.

His quality-of-competition metrics are pretty soft but his zonestart is about 47%. IIRC from the game I saw, he was playing with Alfredsson behind Spezza-Michalek.

Good player, but riding the percentages. Just not a first-line center to be, IMO.

Quiet! Don't tell them about our size.

By the way, who brought the transformation? Not PG, is it?

What a change in the Leafs board from the first 20 games until now.. The first 20 games the Leafs were the best team ever and now reality as sunk back in again..

Hes not getting soft opposition, he plays about 18-20 min a night. Hes our 2nd line Center playing with Alfredsson and Condra, sometimes they put Michalek on it.

He has been incredible, never thought he was going to be as good as he is and was upset when we traded Rundblad. Hes very fast with lots of skill and has an elite level shot. Saying that tho, its his hockey sense that has him putting up all these points, just has the knack of where the pucks going to be. He has done a good job defensively too.

He still needs to get stronger and bigger but if he does I think he will be a core player for a long time. Dunno how Phoenix messed him up so bad.

Its actually pretty common practice these days to deliberately use an offensively oriented line in soft minutes to produce more scoring. The key question is what kind of players those guys are being matched against each game.

We can still be afforded about ~10 wins for the rest of the season and still end up with a pick at #2-5.

Playing a bit of a DD role?
And what do you mean by riding the percentages, team shooting % high when he is on the ice ?

I meant it in the way TtG under you said. Our 3 highest scoring players are mostly used like that actually so this is no insult to him. Notice how a 32 year old Erik Cole is having a career year right now or how the Sedins had a +-20 point jump in production when the Canucks got Malhotra, that's what I mean when I talk about soft opposition. Doesn't mean any of them are bad hockey players, just mean their job are a little easier than others.
