Awesome poster, and, of course, great GDT as always.
As for the game - on the leafs gdt, there were quite a few posts about the Isles "bullies" having a field day with them. Also, they were saying Haley and Martin were going to dominate the physical play...
I am missing something here? First of all, Haley isn't even playing. Second, the Isles are not a physical team at all, except for Martin.
That's what we want them to think. If the Toronto players think we are bullies, that's half the battle.
I dont know. One would assume Nabokov, maybe even for both games considering whats at stake and the fact Montoya is cold. I think Nabby plays tonight and if he plays well Jack ask him if hes up for night 2. Usually back to back is always a diff goalie the 2nd night but this may be an exception. ride the hot hand IMO.
Exactly, I don't think many of us would be opposed to seeing him for both nights
I am from Toronto...most of the fans are bandwagoners really. The team sucked for so long, the real hockey fans are fans of other teams. That comment was obviously made by someone that doesn't follow the league very much. Haley has not played that many games this year.
We should not get over confident..our Achilles heal is consistency and we haven't showed that in a long time, though, I must say..since around xmas, the boys have been playing relatively well, even when we lost, they played well.
This is an important game and against a pretty good team on their turf so we have to get psyched up and kick some butt.
Don't have a good feeling about this one. The Leafs have lots of speed on their top lines, Kessel and Lupol are very slick and talented. Isles have to play better than they did against the Canes, especially from the start,and have to slow them down.
Looking forward to the game tonight, the Leafs are frustrating as hell so obviously I hope they win this one. Leafs-Isles playoff series was one of the best in recent memory so I really want another playoff matchup in the next few years! Though it wouldn't be the same without Tucker.
I'd ride Nabby into the break as long as he plays well tonight. He'll get off a few days and maybe start Monty 1st game back in net to give Nabby some extra time. Everyone will be "rusty"-ish after the break, ASG participants not included, so imo that's a good time to give Montero a shot.
I feel a big night for Grabs tonight. JT extends streak early in 1st but Grabs gonna get going tonight
