Leafs: 49 GP: 25-19-5 - Won last 2 (6-4-0) [55Pts]
New Jersey: 48 GP: 26-19-3 - Lost last 3 (5-4-1) [55Pts]
Florida: 48 GP: 22-15-11 - Lost last 1 (3-3-4) [55Pts]

Ottawa: 52 GP: 27-19-6 - Lost last 3 (6-4-0) [60Pts]
Washington: 48 GP: 26-19-3 - (5-4-1) [55Pts]

Penguins: 49 GP: 28-17-4 - Won last 7 (7-3-0) [60Pts]

As you can see insanely tight and the teams that were over-achieving have fallen back to earth and those who were predicted winners are rising.

Penguins are tough to beat in their rink, especially in recent weeks.

I can't see the Leafs winning that one.

I would be happy with a split or atleast an OT loss and a win.

Everyone complains about Bob Cole missing calls, getting names wrong, etc.

From watching the last game he called, he got 2 names mixed up, I think probably Gunnarsson/Gustavsson. Bowen does it about 1000 times a game. I basically yell at my TV, just correcting his ass. I think we should start a petition to get Cole back. I miss that "Sundin... SCORES." voice.

I find them all to be so bland that it actually takes me out of the game. It honestly hurts my watching experience, and I hate muting the TV because I love hearing the game. Don't have surround at the moment, so I can't do the centre channel fix either. Asshats.

Leafs can win this if we can knock guys out of the crease area. That's how 2 of the goals last game came in result.

Pens are tough and hot but the leafs match up with them pretty well.

Pens are a physical, nasty, grinding bunch.....but they do have problems with the Leafs' speed.

Hopefully all three of our lines can get their speed game going, and Gus can hold the fort in the back.

We'll also have to be careful to keep out of the penalty box like we have been.

Armstrong skating with Bozak and Boyce.

Uh - so line predictions?

Lupul - Connolly - Kessel
MacArthur - Grabovski - Kulemin
Boyce - Bozak - Armstrong
Brown - Steckel - Crabb

Uh? Where does Kadri fit in here?

Lupul, Kessel and Phaneuf not expected at #Leafs practice today. Darryl Boyce (back) and Colby Armstrong (concussion) on a line with Bozak.

must be a day off for the three after the ASG.

I would guess that one of Boyce or Crabb is a healthy scratch and Kadri ends up with Bozak and Boyce.

But I'm really just guessing, I thought that line was lights out in the preseason and would like to see what they can do again.

Lupul Kessel and Phaneuf aren't practicing. Bozak will be back with Lupul and Kessel by the looks of it for game time. And then Army takes someones spot Kadri/Crabb if he is ready to go.

Leafs about to practise today at 2. Today might be the 1st time this season that the complete roster is actually healthy.

Interesting, wonder how the roster will take shape.

It'd be cool if we got to see Kadri-Bozak-Armstrong in action, but since Connolly sucks on the first line and the only centre who fits there is Bozak, we probably won't ever see it.

Those practice lines would indicate that Armstrong isn't quite ready to return yet....or maybe he is, and he just isn't being peniclled into the starting lineup automatically.

Boyce and Aulie should be sent down to make room imo.

Crabb has earned his keep. Hope Kadri doesn't get that call.

The next week or two should be interesting. Kadri, Lombardi, and Armstrong will be fighting for minutes.
