First home game after a road trip for the Leafs. First game under a new coach for the Sabres. I actually think we should win that game. I'll guess a 4-2 win.

Ennis
Pominville
Grigorenko
Gerbe (EN)

Kessel
Grabovski

Considering this is only the sixth coach to take the helm in the last 25 years here, it's going to be unusual for a lot of people.

I dont get this. Sure seemed like most / many of the players were dying for this to happen. I understand the disappointment that it wasnt working out anymore and a sympathy to Ruff leaving. BUT, there seems to be this facade of shock and horror that he is gone. It's what you were asking for. You can be sympathetic to Ruff and the situation without the BS of false shock and grief.

Either these guys are going to be transformed, or they aren't. We'll know which it is in 5 minutes.
I expect the most exciting game of the season (from a drama standpoint) to be one of the last few games where we are looking at drafting top 3, or with a few meaningless wins, drafting 10-12.

Unless I'm mistaken, this guy is the first interim coach in Sabres history.
He gets to interview before the other candidates. The team is such a mess, that if he can perform a miracle, he may have a shot at getting hired as head coach.
Usually with interim coaches, the players perform well at first; then fall into their old habits.

I think the players have the fear of God in them now after seeing a legend get tossed out the door. Anyone of them could get traded to Winnipeg tomorrow. And should.

Given I started watching the Sabres seriously in maybe 1992, most of my time as a Sabres fan has seen Lindy behind our bench. It's going to be weird.

Go Sabres.

There's no more excuses. Ruff took a majority of the criticism from the fans and media. It's all on the players now.

I was thinking this, then another question crept in: At what point does Darcy take responsibility? I can see the only way Darcy is gone is if he steps down.

This team has a lot of players that laid down while the chief was going up in flames; that's lifeless, and they need to be shown the door soon. Everyone knows who. Guys like Vanek and Miller and Pomminville gave full effort, even if they didn't like the guy, because they're professional. We all know who laid down. Think tall guy who skates with a purse.

Dont think so. I anticipate that blame and heat now will be directed at DR, and then after that Pegula. I think the players have escaped most of the criticism.

Regier is already taking some heat from the hockey press for the collection of misfits he's assembled.

The Leafs practice / game day skate cam feature is amazing. I knew it existed but I had never tuned in before.

- Professional layout
- Quality video / audio feeds
- Stats and tweets
- Interviews
- On ice and high up arena cams

Someone forward this to Ted Black. Tremendous feature.

well done Leafs

Wouldn't expect Porter to be on the ice yet. McCormick has to clear waivers or get claimed, which will be at 12pm. They can't call up Porter until McCormick is off the roster. So, if someone claims him OR (he clears AND they assign him)

Not bad at all. Is this all on the LeafsTV through cable/satellite providers in Canada?

Orr left with a LBI and is out tonight, per Carlyle's presser:

No word yet on if the #Leafs will recall anyone. My guess is Steckel comes in and McClement joins Kadri and MacArthur on 3rd line.
