"We played great. It was a miracle they were up 2-0 after that (first) period," Lundqvist"

The rangers were making bad decisions. If the leafs had some offensive pressure rangers would be still doing the same thing which is making mistakes. The leafs just stopped skating and dumped it out. After the dump it would be a quick change of lines.

Except Kessel doesn't have a centre and Phaneuf has never had the proper partner in Toronto. LOL, read between the lines.

Pretty much. We're playing as expected I'd say, we're not a very good team on paper and play worse on the ice; we belong nowhere near playoff contention, which I'm good with for a great pick this year.

For the limited amount of time he did get, he was good. Positionally sound and an active stick. Didn't score a goal but also didn't cause one.

He was pretty invisible. Which was a good thing.

Looks like a solid #6 guy

He had 100+ PIMs in ~35 games for the Marlies. I want to see this guy lose his mind on someone before judging.

No offense OP, but there is not one good reason why this thread shouldn't be merged with PGT.

I can't believe that I've actually read posts on this thread that are critical of Reimer.

Reimer played great last night and any fan that thinks he had any chance on any of those goals are just plain dumb.

Also, if any idiot Leaf fan thinks for a second that the Leafs could have won that game last night if Luongo had of been in net for us then they are completely delusional.

Wake the hell up.

Very late (whatever), but Bozak has made some horrendous plays costing us goals. Bad decisions in the offensive zone combined with lackluster effort coming back causing odd-man rushes.

He was reliable/sound and +1. Phaneuf was a -4 looked like crap again.

I'm a fan of Fraser but he did not play well against NY, he tried to play physical but got overpowered by nearly everyone and also looked a step behind on most plays. He shouldn't be on the Leafs this year.

You don't sound like a fan of Fraer's.
He was fine against NYR.
Was on for zero goals and zero chances against.
He is a tough strong reliable 6th D. The strength of the team actually are D 5-8. It is the rest of the team that struggles.

I noticed both Kostka and Dion were north of 20 minutes after 2 periods against NYR. It was their 3 game in 4 nights. Crazy bad asset management to think that pairing would be strong in the 3rd.

i thought he was fine. Limited playing time. If Komi played that good we'd have "Rebirth" Threads ... but because nobody knows who this scrub is he's invisible.

Invisible could be the best compliment someone on our BlueLine could ever receive.

He seemed fine. There was one play where Liles got steamrolled by Boyle and as the play went up the ice I thought Fraser was going to go with him in response but he didn't. I'm not sure if he took exception to the hit or not (couldn't see because the cameras had moved with the puck).

Not sure there is any "denial", but clearly the Leafs are caught between "build" models. Have not been able to take advantage of good draft positioning in recent years, among other difficulties. (Oilers have been able to draft high year after year, as have the Penguins at different points in their successful years (Lemieux, Jagr, etc. and more recently Crosby, Malkin...along with Quebec City/Avs, and of course the Sens through the 1990s...

James Mirtle ‏@mirtle

Carlyle says "it was too much" for the minutes given to Phaneuf and Kostka on Sat. Admits things weren't going well and got away from them.

That's actually a nice improvement. I knew there had to be some positives out there.
