NYI certainly paid full price for Vanek. Still, Vanek could be a very good addition to Tavares's line.

You can't outscore your problems, Isles. You need a goalie.

Vanek has fewer goals than Moulson over the last few years...granted, Vanek wasn't playing with JT, I just think a 1st & 2nd seems high for a relatively similar UFA player.

I hope Vanek lights it up tonight.

He's in a situation where his contribution can help a team make the playoffs.

In Buffalo, his contribution wasn't enough to make a dent.

Leafs getting outshot 8-2 by Calgary so far, but with this team, shots against don't matter apparently so...

You can't get consistently outshot and outplayed and expect to win.

Yet they continue to do so (going back to last season). I just don't get it.

Unsustainable shooting percentages, probably.

EDIT: And opposing goalies playing terribly. That was a horrible goal.

Lulz, it's even worse when Leafs fans come out in droves and infect opponent's buildings.

Watched the first period of Leafs vs Flames and lmao they are again totally outplayed, Flames had like 3-4 times when the puck slid just past the goal and they had one post as well. Ridiculous game to watch, their luck HAS to end soon.

Well at least our top 2 goalies aren't getting arrested.

Then again they haven't committed robbery once this year.

Yes they added Bolland. Yes they have some good offensive players. But good God are they ever a sham. It's hilarious and awful. Damn shame that such a boring, insignificant team such as the Leafs have to be the centre of media attention in this country ala Yankees or Lakers in the US. They are so dull, so illegit it's amazing.

David Clarkson is a dumb hockey player.

Toronto is getting doubled up in shots again.

The dam has to burst for Toronto sooner or later. They can't get outplayed so consistently and win games.

Apparently with the charges Varlamov is facing it could be 2-6 years jail time according to Denver law

Well, the laughs did it again and golden boy Monahan got zero points. What's up with that guy lately?

This is pretty interesting,
If he is unavailable to the avs for an extended period the avs hot start could come to a screeching halt
This obviously really came out of no where and they are not going anywhere with J.S
