Leafs @ Penguins home opener

A tough matchup, but will surely test our new defensive system.

Go Leafs Go

Leafs Lines: Lupul-Bozak-Kessel, JVR-Grabo-Kulemin, MacArthur-Kadri-Komarov, Brown-McClement-Orr-Steckel
I think that's a good little tweak in the lineup.

I guaranteed fact I can assure you: Nazem Kadri will not be playing a lot if we have the lead. He will be getting icetime if we are chasing a team though.

Good change-up. I believe they (JvR, Kuli, Grabo) practiced together once during "camp" as well.

2 games, 3 goals against, no softies, and has been playing during the lockout. Don't see any reason why you would think Reimer has earned it by sitting on the bench after having a bad camp.

I meant easier relative to the Penguins. No one will be easy this year.

I didn't say Reimer earned the start. I said Scrivens didn't earn the next one. A couple of the goals against were saveable IMHO. His rebound control hasn't been all that great either. After allowing 2 goals in 7 shots, and only posting a .900 save percentage last night, I don't know how you can say he earned this next one...

That said, as someone previously posted. It MAY make more sense to give Reimer the start at home against the easier opponent.

Opening nights haven't been good to the home teams for the most part this season, hopefully the Pens are victims of this as well.

2 goals on 20 shots. Comical to look at a save percentage for ONE game. Why don't you look at two games? .929 isn't so bad.

He has allowed 3 goals. One was a massive deflection, one was a breakaway, and one was people banging away infront of the net, with our captain putting his stick on Gionta's ass instead of keeping it on ice.

How do those seem like savable situations to you? If you saw yesterdays game, you will realize that .900 doesn't reflect how he played. He made some key saves in the third, and kept us in the game for a good 5-10 mins in the end, when we went a little easy on our defensive assignments.

He has shown absolutely no reason for us to consider sitting him.

To be fair, the Rangers defense has sucked so far - ours hasn't been that bad. But I do think a minimum of 3 GA is in the cards.

I'm not just looking at save percentage. It's just a point. Fact is, the Leafs have limited scoring chances from both of their opponents, with most of the shots coming from the perimiter. Scriven's rebound control against Montreal was HORRIBLE. The leafs limited Montreal to scoring chances. Thats why only 1 goal was allowed then, and IIRC, that goal was a result from poor rebound control.
