Lets hope Frattin doesn't miss a step. Him and Kadri were magic before the injury, although it seems like anyone who plays with Kadri is.

They will probably move Maclement to centre Orr and Macleren, and Komarov with Grabo. Steckel likely sits.

I hope so. That line has spent a lot of time floundering in their own end the past few games.

Had nothing to do with Carlyle. It was Frattin's call when he felt he was ready to go.

I'm referring to Carlyle putting MacArthur Kadri and Frattin together.

Mac-Kadri-Frattin for a second line is not too shabby!

Frattin will be on fire tonight!

Hope we see the same frattin. Also komarov with grabo and kulemin worked well before so that might also ignite their line.

I'm curious to see how Clark Macarthur continues to produce with Frattin on the line.. Could be the line that wins us the game for sure.

Probly, I don't see how it makes sense for Grabovski's line to be getting 2nd line minutes when they have played horrible. They need to get demoted and Kadri's line needs to be the 2ND line, maybe it will spark Grabovski's line. Plus i don't feel to good about Grabovski's line playing against Crosby and Malkin if there still considered or "checking line" cause grabovski and a checking line dont go together

The 2nd line is a shut down line. Kadri's line is offensive, Grabo's has been the opposite.

Think of it like having a 2A line for defence (Grabo) and a 2B for offence (Kadri) if that helps.

That's why McClement often plays with Grabovski, because he's more d first

Matt Frattin was very quietly reinserted in the line-up last night playing 13:23 TOI only ahead of Leo Komarov, Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren and far behind linemates Nazem Kadri and Clarke MacArthur who recorded over 17mins over the course of the 65 minute game.

Despite the limited minutes, he managed to record 1A 2hits +1 and in the little I noticed him, he looked pretty good.

What did you guys think of his return?

He looked like he just came from injury, you could see he was just slightly off.

Not a bad thing though, he made some great plays, just needs to get back into game form and I'm sure he will within a game or two.

That line will be lethal in the upcoming weeks.

I literally can't wait to ice a healthy line-up.

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
JVR-Grabovski-Kulemin
MacArthur-Kadri-Frattin
Komarov-McClement-Enforcer

That is one DEEP line-up and I love how every player actually serves a purpose!

Yeah it looks like a fantastic lineup.. only concern is JVR and how his production may suffer playing on the shut-down line.. I'd rather switch JVR and MacArthur, despite MacArthur's chemistry with Kadri.

Personally I care less about individual stats and more about whether the team wins or not. If JVR does not contribute on that line how good is he really? I have more faith in him than that.

JvR would be good on any of the three lines. TBH I see Mac going to the Grabo line and Lupul easing back into play with the Kadri line. His style of play would mesh very nicely with Kadri and Frattin.

Actually, I thought JVR really got his start (as in producing) this year on the Grabovski line.

He was 1st. star, and Kulemin 2nd.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.

His two-way play would fit in nicely with Kuli as well. Maybe if Kuli and JVR get some chemsitry it will be easier to transition Grabo out as center and put in someone else, maybe like Kadri .

I was pleased with Frattin's first game back from his knee issues. Thought his timing was a little off but that'll come as he gets more games in so I'm not worried.

I think it was his timing, looked to be chasing quite a bit, which is interpreting where the play is going, rather than anticipating it.

Give him a couple games and hopefully we'll see his touch back.
