Game, set, and match. Bye.
you must be basing that on the fact Grabovski plays more?

goodbye alright. you're fun to laugh at but you get boring pretty quick

On the bright side, that 5 min PK seemed to bring out the best in Scrivens, which is good to see. I want to have him looking solid, he just hasn't up until tonight.
Holzer was playing an excellent game and if anything that was an interference penalty, not a boarding one, the fact the guy was on the bench after the oscar was handed out and Holzer in the dressing room says it was a bad call. Ref erred there.

Great game. The best part was how our fourth line would forecheck and you could tell that none of the orange players wanted anything to do with it.

Side note - did anyone notice that dbag Sestito do anything after he and Orr had a chat early in the first? I'm asking cause I don't even remember seeing him take another shift for the rest of the night.

Pretty ugly 5 minutes to close but with a 4 goal lead that's more than ok with me. Great game, love seeing us make the most of our chances.

- Fraser is solid. Does everything simply and effectively. Even when everyone's healthy I don't see how you can take him out of the lineup.

- Kadri is a dangerous man. Maybe B. Schenn's taking a bit longer to develop and to be fair this was the only time I've seen him this year, but I'm thinking we ended up with the right guy there.

- I remember a scouting report on Vanek before he came in the league saying that all he's done at every level is score bunches of goals. Same thing goes for Frattin and it's great to see him make it happen at the NHL level.

- 4th line.....glad to see Orr rewarded tonight and they've earned more and more ice time. I like what McLaren brings.


Just love the way this team is put together! Haven't been this excited about the Leafs in a long, long time.

Take the sunglasses off guy, RC uses all his players. According to your theories, his favourite player must be Kostka, why don't you look at whose ice time noticeably increased for his role tonight before trying to leap over CN tower conclusions.

He played 7:38 tonight (4:50 vs Mtl on Saturday) .. he averaged around 5 minutes when he played for Wilson.

Colton Orr sucked last year and worked very hard to return to the Leafs lineup. Stop discrediting all the hard work he put in during the offseason.

Accept it.

Franson has quietly been our best defenseman offensively.


8pts in 10 games is actually very impressive, especially considering the minutes he plays.

JVR's goal was epic. he got behind Schenn and shot it. couldn't have asked for a more perfect moment.

Interference? Come on, dude that was boarding no doubt - it was a good call and a bad play by Holzer. You could see him looking up to the sky in resignation after that play.

Great win, boys, great win.

Get well soon Optimus!

Agreed, I didn't think much of him last year, he is better in this system and under this coach.

We're getting spoiled here fellas. The Leafs are playing insanely good hockey. That MacArthur goal was beautiful. Kadri is killlllling it!

Good to hear Reimer won't be missing that much time, felt for the kid when he went down. Also, the ACC is starting to get it! Showing lots of praise. Love it.

Just another one of those games where everyone chips in. From the net out. The best kind.

Orr put in the work, the poster clearly cannot read, I never said anything that said he didn't.

But it is foolish(not you) by some to say or infer he got a fair shake last year, if he did we wouldn't have been the softest team in the NHL, the difference is one coach knows how to use his players, they know their role, and they are made to feel important playing that role.

I guess playing every game in 2010/11 and 2011/12 (before getting injured) wasn't much of a shot?

how many forwards have more shifts per game than Grabovski? why does RC keeping putting that guy he doesn't like or trust out there like that... what a fool the coach must be. but wait, you think he's a good coach. what is the explanation then? please, I want to learn. please help me understand because obviously only you knows the truth

btw the answer is 1
