Terrified? Wow, what a thing to say.

Terrible comment. Nice win.
They were so terrified they figured they needed to score 5 goals to win the game. Poor Price could barely keep up with the speed of attacking mighty Leafs.

A few points on last nights game:

-Goal scorers: Cole-Pacioretty-Bourque-Eller all 6'2" and Darche 6'1", who said the habs were small?
-Where's the people saying Pleks doesn't have vision, two beautiful assists on great passes by him
-Darche is in beast mode
-Price makes goaltending look easy
-Kaberle looking great out there moving pucks out of our zone
-The team had a game plan to "bring it" and did not take the foot off the pedal even though that first period could of put anyone to sleep. Props to Cunneyworth and co.

This made me laugh, the only guy with speed is Kessel.....maybe Grabo, but nothing to be terrified about...

This game couldn't have gone better. Hope they can keep the ball rolling. These kind of games make living in the middle of "leafs nation" so worth it, all the leaf fans are in hiding now haha (plus TSN is so pissed Sundin night was ruined lmao). So happy with this win!

It's all good...if I remember correctly though, the Habs laid an egg on BG's big night in Montreal 2 seasons back...retirement cermonies seem to hurt the host more than the visitors...

Sundin wasn't surrounded with garbage. Maybe some players were over the hill when they were with him.. but still, there were all sorts of good players on his team. I'll give you credit, he occasionally had a **** winger like Renberg or Hoglund. But nothing like what Koivu dealt with. Aside from Tanguay, Kovalev, and for a brief time Zednik.. Koivu had crap to play with, man. The Leafs blew the bank and traded all sorts of prospects for All-Stars pre-lockout on a few occasions, they never delivered. Ironically if Koivu had Sundin's size, or Sundin had Koivu's heart and grit (not that Mats didn't have those things... just not as much as Koivu IMO) both of their teams may have won something, who knows.

I love his rushes up the ice, but when he's playing a quiet, simple game, he's most effective. The flashier stuff can come when management surrounds him better.

Not only that, but Sundin was almost always healthy, especially in his prime. Saku couldn't catch a break, only Zednik had worse luck than the guy. You can blame it on his size, but I don't think that has anything to do with getting cancer.

Not to downplay Sundin, of course having a guy you can rely on to stay healthy is part of the game, and as much as I'm never going to love a Nordiques/Leafs cornerstone, I do respect Sundin. But few players coped with a worse situation than Koivu.

Careful you don't swallow your own venom. Sundin wasn't on the ice but he watched 20 chokers flail helplessly.

In the Leafs GDT last night many Leaf fans were ripping on Schenn for how bad he was and needs to be off the team.. However it's a much different story when you go to the trade rumor board here and Schenn suddenly as the value of Bobby Orr when they include the guy in trade proposals..

I'd say he was, actually. Look at the 1998 Leafs as just one example: http://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/TOR/1998.html

Mike Johnson, Derek King, and Igor Korolev as the 3 top scoring forwards behind Sundin on the team? Only a half year of a broken Wendel Clark near retirement? Look at that defense too, and tell me (besides Schneider) who was even marginally gifted at moving the puck quickly up the ice to the forwards. Yushkevich, maybe? That's as bad, or worse, than anything Koivu had behind him at any point.

Part of me feels bad for Schenn. People talk about how bad we are at developing prospects, few teams are worse at it than the Leafs. They are turning the kid into Komisarek 2.

Forget about having to leapfrog over other teams. That's BS. Keep your attention on the point total. We have 55 points in 56 games.

We need 39, maybe 38 more points and we have 26 games left. That's a clip of 19-6-1, maybe 19-7-0.

Do you think this team can do it? If they play like they have the last 4. It looks doable. If they play like the 3 games after the all star it looks like a pipe dream.
Forget about any arbitrary number of wins needed to get in. The Habs could use a lot of help but it's not as though the other teams vying for the 8th spot in the East are champions. How many more games can they afford to lose while the Habs are winning? The Habs' current 4-game winning streak should make them feel a bit less secure.

In the early to mid 2000's they assembled a lot of pretty solid veteran teams. Guys were maybe a bit past their prime, but much much better than the Habs were. Thinking of Koivu's linemates I can come up with Brian Savage/Oleg Petrov, Chad Kilger/Sergei Berezin I think the year he returned from illness, Zednik/Whoever, maybe Nicklas Sundstrom for a bit . I guess Kovalev, occasionally, and Higgins/Ryder was a decent set of linemates for a while.
