Rosehill doesn't play better then anybody. On any team.

With that said playing better then Talbot isn't exactly an accomplishment.

I didn't think Schenn looked as bad as some others, I guess. I mean, he didn't stand out as impressive, but I didn't think he looked much worse than most of the rest of our forwards, and at least he converted a chance, which is more than the others can claim.

That said, I'd be fine reverting to what most of us expected:

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Schenn-Lecavalier-Simmonds
(Talbot)-Couturier-Read

Mez's first shift on the PP where he chased the puck around the boards and did nothing but get in everyone's way like the obnoxious dman nobody wants in EASHL was hard to watch.

There were about two shifts I noticed where it looked like Couturier turned it over while trying hard to get the puck to Voracek. He didn't even attempt to get it to Talbot...shows how much confidence he has in his linemate. Let's at least put Laughton in there to get some new blood on that line, maybe add some jump, and see what he can actually do on the ice instead of farting on his seat upstairs.

Talbot should be on the 4th with Hall and Rinaldo.

Yup. Neither of them made horrible passes that led directly to Toronto goals.

I'm aware the whole team sucked on the PP but individually he was one of the most stood out for me when it came to sucking on the PP.

Tough ****. He hit him in the shoulder and it shouldn't have even been a penalty.

It would be truly impressive if Rosehill led to as many goals against as Talbot night-in and night-out if he did that while only getting half as much ice-time (and less ice-time then anyone else on the team for that matter).

I agree. Talbot is a good 4th liner and PKer, but he's a really bad winger for Couturier.

Maybe Mezaros is getting PP time so they can try and trade him for Mitchell.

I thought it was a minor, based on Fraser's spacing from the boards (which can be a factor). I didn't think it was particularly vicious or dirty.

Orr's hit was bad. Between that and Ranger's two-hander on Read, I can't see how any Leafs fan can seriously complain about the officiating.

At this point I don't care if we can get an equally useless player back in Mitchell, just get rid of Meszaros. Dump him, trade him for future considerations, whatever. Just get rid of that atrocious cap hit and free up room for Gus.

Vinny will fit in very well in Philly -- he wasn't flying, but his creativity and puck handling skills are still very slick. The two other Flyers players that were more noticeable than others were Giroux and Simmonds for me.

I also want to comment on Orr. I read through the game board you guys have up, and I thought you guys might have missed something. Orr's crosscheck was a little high, but he was just trying to defend Fraser. Rosehill boarded, and Fraser's head flew into the boards, and he was completely out for the rest of the game (hopefully not a concussion..), Leafs were playing with 4-5D for the whole third period, I believe. so rewatch that? :/

Anyways, good game!
There are ways to defend a player and thats not one I hope Orr is suspended.

I guess another one for the Good column is Mez not getting injured.

Talbot shouldn't be in the top 9.

I would like to see Jake and Schenn together again, maybe with G.

Vinny and Read were pretty good as was Streit, Kimmo and Grossmann. The whole d actually was pretty good outside of Mez.

Oh and I don't like Lavi.

Rosehill's hit was late, Orr's hit was uncalled for, both got penalized for the play. No suspension. If Rosehill doesn't get his arm up in time, Orr probably gets a handful of games.

I know what he meant , had nothing to do with my comment , it is a fresh season give it some games before blaming Lavy and his system.

Well sitting between the benches was pretty damn cool. I was wearing the Lecavalier jersey. McCrossin gave my little brother Voracek's broken stick which was pretty cool.

Why is it that no matter the personnel that is brought in here we see the same script......we get tons of chances and can't finish and the opposing goalie looks like a vezina candidate even when it's a backup. Worse we still can't play 60 mins. Then you have people claiming tonight that Lavi and his system wasn't necessarily the problem..just one of execution/finishing. Well dammit we've heard this same excuse now for too many years.
