the blueprint is there.... Toronto is a much improved team, but Boston has to get locked in and execute. They should have the tools and players to do what the Rangers did.

For many reasons, Lucic goes with Orr tonight.

Probably, but you'll know for sure after the skate. And it's Tuukka. Two U's, two K's.

I like Robins a lot, I think he's a great guy. But he's not an NHL player, and I can't see him getting a callup unless the Bruins are playing the Mongol horde.
That sucks. I'd much rather him up against teams looking for payback than Bourque

First time in this GDT and its full of Leaf's fans. That had better not be a bad omen for things to come.

I expect a hard-fought game tonight, but I cannot see the leaf's D and G holding up if the Bruins forwards (who look like they will be without Paille according to my snazzy new Bruins App) can hold up their end.

I think if the B's remember how to play team defense and they forecheck well and sustain pressure, the Leafs will fold.

Problem now is whether the team remembers how to play defense, because they sure as heck forgot in the Sabres game.

I don't understand the pessimism shown on here recently

I mean, everyone is fully entitled to enjoy this sport as they please, but damn I just... I don't see the point in getting worked up about lucic fighting or Thornton being "washed up" on and on, this game is supposed to be fun. If following the bruins stressed me out (as opposed to be a source of escape) I'd bail on them faster than Ted Kennedy in a sinking car.

Enjoy the game tonight people, drink, be merry...it's Saturday

Why? Did anyone else expect Thornton to beat Scott? I for one expected exactly what happened, expect with more blood.


For every loss, there's a win. And a pissed off Lucic, older, stronger, wiser= fun times with Orr. He may not beat him but I expect him to keep up. He doesn't HAVE to fight Orr, but I wouldn't not want to see it as a B's fan of course.

I think this line-up has some potential. Just imagine Tardif being on fire on his NHL debut, sparking Pevs and Kelly and Bourque giving the 4th line some offensive and skill spark as well.

I love thornts as much as the next guy, but losing him doesnt make us a weaker team at all.. Macdermid may not be as good a fighter but he hits 10x harder than thorntons "Butt" checks. Looch, chara etc. may have to fight a little more, but dont believe they will do the staged fights thornton always did. Instead, if someone like Orr asks looch to go off the faceoff , hopefully he laughs at him then puts him through the boards with a bodycheck. teams with a couple 4th line goons will have trouble trying to match us still seeing our toughest players play alot of minutes...

Just like every other facet of life, people sometimes put way too much emotion and thought into it. Also just like real life, its generally the negative stuff that people dwell on the most.

No, they really are not. They are the same team as last season and without Lupul. They are mediocre at best.

Being in the 'leaf nation' geographic, what I have seen in the press is not about Kessel so much, but more about the younger guys like Kadri.
Hope the B's are more rested than when playing the sabres, and guys like Seguin and Hamilton coming 'home' to play will inspire them.
Enjoy the game Neely2005, it's a great place to catch a game, I just hope you didn't have to pay for the tickets

I'm 27 years old and the Leafs haven't been in the playoffs since I was in high school.

I see the Buffalo game hasn't knocked anyone off the high horse.

Here's hoping for a good game.

Why?

Two minutes in and another one of our tough guys gets beat up, how's that help anything? Seems to be the most likely situation to give the Leafs an edge.

I am hoping Seguin and Hamilton will have big games in what is essentially their home town.

Makes me wonder though what the families who are Leafs fans do when they go to the game and watch their kid/sibling play for the Bruins. Talk about divided loyalties.
