I was wondering if you could let us know about special teams in St. John's.

Who gets the bulk of the power play time? Who are the top penalty killers on the team? Especially on defence.

Thanks.

I am looking forward to see how Wellwood does going Head to Head with Brad Boyes tonight..

Statiscally Wellwood in his first year is out producing him after the quarter mark..

Realistcally Wellwood is the only Baby Leafs forward prospect that has a chance at the NHL, maybe Holden as a fill-in but he is getting up there in age, where prospect is not the best way to describe him...

Leaf Army,

Leafs PP: 16-for-97 (16.49%) which includes Friday night's statistics.
Leafs PK: PPGA 23 TSH 102 (77.45%) which includes Friday night's statistics.

With the Leafs PP I think that they pass the puck around too much and do not shoot enough. Having said that when they do get shots towards the goal I find that they do not have much traffic in front of the net. The Leafs do generate shots from the point on the PP. The Leafs PP has not given up many SHG's this season, just 2.

Leeb, Holden, Druken, Wellwood, Daw and Gavey are the forwards that usually get the most time on the PP.

On defense it is hard to say, Colaiacovo and Hedin are probably the two rearguards that play the most on the PP.

The Leafs PK has been busy so far this season and they have played well. It seems like the Leafs give up PPG's at the end of the kill, but overall they have been good. The Leafs are a dangerous team on the PK having scored 4 SHG's this season. Only Albany, Cincinnati and Hartford have scored more SHG's than the Leafs with 5 each.

The Leafs best penalty killers in my opinion are forwards Robb Palahnuk, Luca Cereda, Clarke Wilm and Jeff Daw. Each of those players play a smart game on the PK.

On defense Colaiacovo, Harrison and Moro are strong penalty killers from the back end.

According to the broadcast both Wellwood and Boyes played well.

Boyes was the games 3rd Star.
Wellwood was named Grub Club Hardest Working Maple Leaf.

The Barons opened a 2-nothing lead with a goal of the stick of Ex-Leaf Brad Boyes, his 6th of the season, with the assists to Doug Murray and Miroslav Zalesak at the 5:33 mark on the powerplay. Things were not looking good for the Blue and White. The Leafs would cut the lead to 2-1 with a goal off the stick of Brad Leeb, his 9th of the season, with the assists to Regan Kelly and Kyle Wellwood at the 8:27 mark. The teams would go into the first intermission by that same score. The Leafs outshot the Barons 14-13 in the opening 20 minutes.

The puck went in off Leafs Captain Aaron Gavey, Centomo had no chance. The Leafs had a great chance moments later when Kondratiev rang one off the post. The Barons took a 4-3 lead with a goal off the stick of Lynn Loyns, his 1st of the season, with the assists to Jon DiSalyatore and Jim Fahey (his second assist of the game) at the 10:20 mark. The Leafs tied the game at 4 with a goal off the stick of Pierre Hedin, his 3rd of the season, with the assists to Ben Ondrus and Kris Newbury at the 15:00 mark. The Barons would go ahead for good at the 16:08 mark when Fermus, Newfoundland native Ryan Clowe scored his 4th of the season (GWG), with the assists to David Cloutier and Grant Stevenson.

Regan Kelly seems to be pulling ahead of Chartier on the depth chart, Chartier and Barrett seem to be finding their way to the pines, I would like to see the signing bonuses these guy's got. I heard Chartier got between 700k and 800k that's a lot of gabbage for two overagers who put up big numbers when they where 21 playing against 17 and 18 year old. Thanks for the updates on the Baby Leafs games your doing a wonderfull job keeping Leaf fans informed of what's going on down on the farm. Well Done

Red Homer,
Regan Kelly has played really well in the last 3-games. He was a healthy scratch this season for a number of games and now that he has been given the chance he is earning the playing time. According to the Coach Kelly never once complained about sitting out, just worked hard in practice and kept a positive attitude through the whole thing. Not sure if Kelly is pulling ahead of Chartier on the depth chart. Chartier is still a good defensemen and he likes to rush the puck, it is just that his numbers are not there for whatever reason. Chartier was looked upon as a replacement for Nathan Dempsey on the blueline but that never happened and it was not fair to Chartier to be compared to Dempsey.

As for Nathan Barrett the reason he is out of the lineup is because he is hurt. Barrett has a groin pull.

I guess you could find out what the players are making by visiting the Toronto Maple Leafs website. I don't discuss players contracts and signing bonuses.

As for the updates, no problem I enjoy doing them and I hope that the readers here enjoy them as well. Thanks again.
