Wow leafstv is ****ing garbage. I didn't even know there was a scrap until looking at the box score this morning. Of course they are at commercial or some **** during the fight and they don't even give a replay. I really wanted to see that Lebrie turd get tuned up so if anyone finds a video of it plz link

There was a storm that took the signal out twice in the third, first one was when the fight happened.

BTW, we deserved to lose that game after playing miserably on the PP. They had like 4 powerplays and we had 10...

Eakins played the Rosie and Orr line too much, Mueller was awful, Gardiner must of dulled his skates or something cause he was falling all over the place.

The Marlies need to figure out how to run a powerplay, some of the worst zone entry I have ever seen, when they dumped the puck, there was no forecheck and when they tried to skate it in, they ran straight down the middle. Embarrassing.

Did you watch the game?

They did mention the fight but didn't show a replay after they got their signal back. Not really something you can fault LeafsTV for.

Yeah, it's like they left their three best offensive forwards at home or something.

Even with Kadri, Frattin and Zigo, our powerplay was never anything special. Without those guys, it's almost like a bad thing to have a powerplay.

Too bad they had all this bad luck in injuries. Come all this way to lose like this. I think it's going to be a sweep.

Well considering we played terrible and only lost by one goal (I'm not counting the empty net) I think it's going to be a good close series.

You mentioned the best player on our team in this post, and it wasn't Frattin. Jeez.

Frattin is more physical, faster, stronger, has a better shot, has much more balance and is more disciplined.

Frattin is a much better prospect then Conacher, Conacher would be lucky to play in the NHL, he's not skilled enough to make up for his lack of size.

Didn't you all irrationally hype and then have reality slap you in the face enough last year in regards to frattin?

Frattin is not the best player on either team, Kadri is. I just think Frattin is better then Conacher.

I'm not hyping Frattin, I think he'll be a 2nd and 3rd line tweener. If he finds his scoring touch in the NHL, he could be a Dustin Brown-lite.

Even when there isn't a storm the quality of the Marlies broadcasts is worse than any I have seen on TV recently. I am not exaggerating. It's below standard definition. Roger's TV is better.

This is kind of embarrassing since an HD Camera -- broadcast quality -- has come down to the price where and average individual can afford one.

Not impressed with Leafs TV one bit.

Most disappointing thing about last night was the way the Marlies got outplayed. I would have expected better from them but they clearly have a long ways to go. The score flattered them last night.

The other guy said that. Didn't mean to put stupid words in your mouth if that's what it looked like.

Why the same thing could be said of Nazem Kadri. At least Frattin accomplished something to deserve his hype, he scored with some regularity and managed to keep an NHL job. Kadri couldn't even do that. Yet here you are all talking as if it's a foregone conclusion that Kadri is the best player in the AHL and he's the savior of the Leafs. Its so funny. The kid is sitting in the stands with a band aid on his pinky finger while his team is in the cup finals. That's our savior.

Could be back next game or could miss the entire series. They are keeping pretty quiet on the situation.

10 goals in 13 games, and people are still calling Kadri the best player? Kadri is younger, and could be the better player in the future but frattin has been making a Mockery of ahl goalies.

Where did you get this "band aid on his pinky finger" business? As far as I know, the details of his upper body injury haven't been disclosed. If you have some insider information, spill it. Otherwise, you're just undercutting your argument by that kind of ridiculous accusation.
