What a game. I think the Leafs are passed frustration.

With that said, I'd still like Schenn as a number 5-6 guy.
Same.

Would be a wrecking show between Emelin, Schenn and Subban.

7-0. LOL

Their system is rather barren but I think there's an outside chance Kadri becomes a 1st-line forward. His AHL shot totals aren't that far off of Pacioretty's at the same age.

Colborne's numbers aren't impressive at all to me - mediocre AHL shot rates and probably riding the percentages to his high totals this year. Maybe he ends up top-6 but a 3rd-line offensive type is what I think I'd expect out of him.
We`ve talked about this elsewhere but I feel it bears repeating. Numbers wise the only ones that really separate Colborne and Palushaj are 6`4 vs. 5`10. Approximately same scoring and age (AHL Palushaj looks better all things considered). How you feel about the two probably correlates highly with how you view the importance of size in hockey.

Similarly, as professionals, Leblanc is very comparable with Kadri. Maybe better (based on AHL shots/NHL scoring), maybe worse (AHL points) and a decent chance of being effectively equal.

So what's happening in the Leafs - Bruins game? Turned on the TV & saw it was 7-0! LOL But Bruins only have 17 shots. 7 goals on 17 shots that's brutal. Really, really bad goaltending, or are the Leafs leaving their goalies hung out to dry?

LOL... I guess beating Ottawa after Montreal softened them up two games in a row didn't give the Leafs the momentum that all the Toronto pundits thought it would

Full-on tank/implosion. I'm not watching, but the Leafs only have 7 shots on goal (last I checked NHL.com). It's more than just the goaltending at this point.

I take Leblanc over Kadri any day of the week, I think at the end of the day Kadri has the potential to maybe put up 65-70pts in the NHL (think MAX here) and I think Leblanc if he reaches his potential will be a steady 45-50pt guy who excels at both ends of the rink. And even at that, I feel much more comfortable with the idea Leblanc can reach that ceiling than Kadri reaching his.

I felt then, and still do now, that it was a very boom or bust pick on behalf of the Leafs.

If they weren't playing the Bruins, I'd normally be happy to see the Leafs get killed.

All my friends and family who are Leaf fans don't even mention hockey around me any more. I already came to terms with the fact that we weren't a good club before the season started. I refused to watch a game until Martin was fired. Those Leaf fans ragged on me constantly. One friend even said "I don't know how you could be a Habs fan" as though I should feel disgusted at how bad the team is.

Am I a bad person because I enjoyed watching their faith and optimism slowly fade? I'm not going to kick them while they are down but I can't help but smile as I watch the Bruins slap the last glimmer of hope out of Leaf Nation.

God I love being a Habs fan <3

Why not? You realize those are the kicks that hurt the most, right? Confused overlords is confused.

Agreed. I thought Toronto would beat Ottawa because Sens were playing their 3rd game in 4 nights & the second of a back-to-back. Ottawa also had to work really, really hard to get those points from Montreal, so they were definitely riped to be picked by Leafs. But, it helped with the tank, so it's all good.

Yeah, I saw the 7 shots total too. That's ridiculous. I was watching the Sens - Leafs game Saturday & there was a wide open scoring opportunity for Kessel at the side of the net that he blew because he was scared of the defenseman coming at him. He didn't want to get hit so he jumped out of the way - scoring opportunity lost. That guy is such a weenie no wonder he can't do anything against the Bruins. Too scared.

Minnesota teasing us with a 1-0 lead after 1 and somehow tying the Canucks in shots.

I haven't followed the Bruins much this year, but he's looked really strong on the boards and confident with the puck.

I get that he didn't look golden here, don't know why we didn't even tender him.
