Congrats to Kessel on his career best 37th tonight. Please lose the final 3 games now.

The best move would be to send Scrivens back down to the minors ASAP so that he doesn't pull a Reimer and win the rest of the games.

Maybe after 10x it is read we'll understand where this season started to go south and where this team still needs to fix before anything else starts to improve as a team.
You also need a number one center, a top line power forward, a number three center and a number one defenseman to truly fix the Leafs.

But you do get the point though. That is lots of teams with 1st overall players lurking in basement.

Is Scrivens a UFA? Do they bring him back to compete for a job next year or do they let him walk? Seems like a better prospect than Jussi Rynnas, but with the need to get a veteran goalie, with Reimer in place and Owuya and Rynnas behind him, I don't see what they could do with him. I'd like to see the Leafs dump Gustavsson and Rynnas, maybe get that Joakim Eriksson. out of Sweden..

Is Leaf talk ending? I keep hearing something, but don't really understand what's going on. Or is Andy Frost giving up the mic?

I agree with this, however I see scrivens leaving. I would love to have him as a number 3, but I dont know of he wants that.

Grabovski had a deep cut that required stitches and led to him leaving the game.

Whatever. I know the guys on the ice will try to win as they have no other objective in mind than that of their own. Too bad that we have to win now that it only hurts us to do so.. ****. I hope they lose the remaining games.

Gusty, Scrivens and Rynnas are all UFA's this summer. If were keeping one, it's going to be Scrivens. We can roll with Reimer and a vet with the Leafs and Scrivens and Owuya on the Marlies. That's how I hope it goes.

Agreed. Scrivens is the one that seems the most solid. He played really well earlier this season and I was impressed then. I see him as a possible future starter on the Leafs.

Capgeek says Scrivens is RFA, and that would make sense since he isn't 27 and doesnt have 7 NHL seasons.

Edit: Rynnas too.

The attendance will be better than if they had it in Columbus

Being from the Stirling area I thought it would have made more sense to have the Pens play the Leafs or something... given it's Matt Cooke's home town....

As for the game I was happy to see Kessel improve defensively. I'm getting a little tired of Lombardi skating around forwards only to launch the puck into the opposing goalies chest. If the guy had finish he'd be better than Crosby. I almost think he'd be better if he just slowed down and tried a novelty thing like aiming...

And a better winger than Frattin. If Grabo carried his line half as well as Kessel has, we'd be in the playoff picture atm.

You're right. Well, hopefully we can keep his rights and give him an extension.
