In both cases, it comes down to chemistry. Just because a player has a better skillset, does not necessarily mean they'll mesh as well with your star players. Just as Connolly was obtained to center Kessel, Richards was signed to center Gaborik. It's not how they've been performing that makes the situation ironic (they've both been doing fairly well), but the fact that neither seems to have been able to fill the role they were acquired for.

It's been a while where I haven't been hyped for a game. The Bruins really killed my enthusiasm right now. I know a great game tonight would help though.

As you guys know with Kessel, he's going to live off his speed like Gaborik does. Getting a playmaker won't affect their goal totals that much.
Getting Richards for someone like Callahan does, though. He's on pace for something ridiculous like 35 goals this season.

LeafsTV is the worst. I'd rather have it on Sportsnet.

we shouldn't underestimate the rangers, they've been on a roll.

Hoping dion screams or something and get the team's act together and hopefully also motivates to actually play in front of the dads true hockey lol

Connolly has good chemistry with Kessel. It's just he's the only forward that's not named Kessel or Lupul that can put up points. Little depth never hurt.

Ya bozie has been dynamite with them too. So far almost every center has looked good with Kessel, even Grabo

The Rangers have the fewest goals scored against them this season, I wouldn't get too cocky about our forwards going to town...

Even if we lose tonight I want to see a tight checking game, solid breakouts, an improvement on our powerplay and crisp passes. Hopefully some physicality as well.

You know dude. If it was almost any other course I'd say stay home and watch the game.

But god damn I know that if I miss a calculus lecture I'm lost, and there's no coming back.

Finals must be coming up soon too I imagine?
