After seeing the play Komisarek made on NJ's first goal last night, I think management may have already tried this

I see.

All jokes aside, we were good defensively and slowly transition in a better carlyle run and gun game, while doing our forecheck and tightening up in the back end.

Lombardi is obviously slowing down Kessel on the top line. He got a few chances last night but they were created by individual efforts. If Lombardi continues to play with Kessel he will not hit the 40 goal plateau. I was also dissapointed that Ashton didn't get more playing time last night. I have also come to the conclusion that Gus should not leave the crease at all except to challenge shooters.

I was at the game last night and I have to say that Connolly and Franson played pretty decent. At the beginning of the game the announcer said that Komisarek was scratched and everyone cheered

Unless it's to move into the top-5, for a package for a #1C, Cody Franson shouldn't be going anywhere except the top-6 defense of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

This kid is an absolute stud. Punishing hits, great skater for a big man, good shot that gets through, ability to jump into the play, reliable defensively, etc. It'd be absolutely idiotic to move him IMO. Need more of his style guys, and less Komisarek's... and I'm a fan of Komisarek.

I agree. While I have disagreed with many decisions made by management over the years, my support for the team/franchise has never waivered, even when I have been laughed at for doing so. Like that u-tube video posted here a while back about being a Leafs fan:

Baby I was born this way.

Kadri had the game on his stick last night and failed.

Dion,

Either block the shot or stay the **** out of the way! He seemed dumb as usual. Also so many of his shots get blocked because he takes a full 1.5 seconds to think before he reacts (pass/shoot/skate/back-up).

Im sorry, Kadri failed? Kessel doesn't always score on a shootout so I guess thosr games are Kessel's fault too. If bozak had scored , we could've won. If gustavsson saved the last goal, we could've won. But they didn't fail or cause the loss. Why? Because it's a team game. It's so wrong to say kadri had the game, could've won, but failed

Colts fan here and despite not ever wanting to tank in any sport, I was COMPLETELY on board for them to get the first pick in the NFL draft. And if we only had Stamkos....

The Leafs better start winning a lot more at home starting next season. If they won a few more games at the ACC over the course of the year they would still be right there battling for a playoff spot. Their road record is certainly better than all of the teams that are out of it and better than Washington's.
