Yep, enough is enough. Skilled players should be with skilled players. It's no surprise that Mac is playing well again.


Agreed. Frattin, Kadri and Mac could be a line with more than enough sandpaper and plenty of skill.

Will be good when Frattin gets back in the lineup. Need someone on Kadri's line with that scoring touch and willing to drive at that net. Kadri's keeping things going, but could use more help there.

Any updates on Frattin said it would be minimum 1 week same as Riemer, haven't head any thing about him skating as of now. Is his injury worse than first reported, did he come back too soon, his surgery was done in the summer.

I don't know why but when I read this I can almost hear you saying it in the same way my kids ask about going out to something like Canada's WonderLand..."are we going to ride all the rides, are we going to have ice cream?".

He Had an interview yesterday he's on the ice practising no contact yet. Says there's swelling in the knee but its getting better day by day. Pumped for Fratts to come back him and Naz have some nasty chemistry together. They just need a big winger on the other side to make room and keep teams honest with out kids. A Ryan Clowe kinda player.

he's close but not there yet. A vet would help them as a stop gap till Tyler is ready for the show. IMO.

May as well just use Colton Orr there, no difference.

Watch kulemin closer. He has been doing great out there. Forechecks hard back checks hardest on the team. More physical this year. I'm very pleased with his game this year.

Me too. He's perfect for the checking line and PK. Scoring would be a bonus.

Hope Frattin heals quickly, we could use his goals.

On another note though: Anyone else excited at the thought of Biggs on our third line with maybe Komarov and Mcclement? In a couple years of course.

He has to bring more than that, he's hardly been "doing great".

Leafs really miss Frattin and lets hope he is back soon and can quickly regain the form he had prior to the injury.

Kadri and Frattin are a dangerous duo when paired together.

Yes he does all of those things but I have an unofficial tally of the number of times he goes to the net, you know where most players score from and I have it at 5 1/2 times in 19 games. To me this means his physicality is only available when he can dictate the terms and he's not prepared to put himself in a situation where he may be hurt. The Kule of 2/3 years ago no longer exists and now he is a quasi 3rd/4th liner at best.

Physical forwards are great but a physical forward with Kule's baggage is just a waste. Don't believe me about his aversion to the opposition's net, watch and learn tonite.

So kulemin has only gone to the front of the net 5.5 times this year?! How the **** do you get a .5? And that's the biggest load of **** "unofficial" stat I've ever heard! Like him or not he's been one of the only leafs to bring effort to almost every game. Watch him tonight, he's playing a shutdown role against oppositions top lines and is still producing well.

Yeah I know, I just think a Frattin - Kadri - Biggs line would be stellar. Or of course a JVR - Kadri - Frattin, can't go wrong with either imo. Hopefully Biggsy only needs a year in the AHL.

There's no way he keeps up a 30+% goal rate and I'm sure Leafs fans will turn on him for it. Won't be fun wading through that.

I think Kulemin and Kadri would mutually benefit from being on the same line, Kulemin could help cover defensively while Kulemin could really use a play maker which Grabovski is not...
