Wouldn't be so bad if you kept it to yourself and didn't start a "Leafs aren't tough enough" thread every few days.

Couldn't pick a better game for Kessel and Lupul to start producing again. Leafs should win this one if they play a smart fast game. Leafs are better than this Sens team.

i agree. our 4th line of Brown-Steckel-Armstrong was absolutely DYNAMITE against the Pens...who are overall definitely not a soft team themselves.

it's not that they dominated physically...but just played very, very well. caused lots of turnovers and played in the offensive zone a lot. very impressed with Armstrong.

What is with this sick obsession with grit and toughness? How about just worrying about being a better team and playing a good road game?

I'm not so sure that is true. However, I agree with the rest of your post. Kessel usually plays well vs. the Sens I believe..don't have stats to back that up, I just remember him usually doing damage against Ottawa. I think him and Lupul will pot a couple between them tonight. This one may go into OT or Shootout I predict. Leafs may pull it out tonight.

Ottawa is in the midst of a losing streak, and they need the points.

Hopefully with the return of Liles, our powerplay will make them think twice about gooning it up against us tonight. It could backfire and cost them big time.

And Colby being back in the lineup will help too. He can be a real ***** to play against.

But overall I agree with the OP, we seriously need some more size and grit up front.

Yes, every night. Not once has any Leaf delivered any sort of physical punishment.

I never thought of Ottawa as being tough and gritty as Boston or NYR. I am not worried about Neil and Carkner, they are brutal players. Are you kidding me? Ottawa is not intimidating. Not in the least.

Didn't you watch the last two games against Ottawa?

Not only did they beat us; they pounded us all game long, with special attention paid to Kessel.

They also made a point of going after Phaneuf. Dion can take care of himself, but we do not want our Captain and #1 defender being in the box for 5, 7, or maybe even 17 minutes because he was goaded into something by the likes of Neil or Konopka.

Exactly, gritty and dirty are not the same thing, Ottawa being the latter.

Burke might be all about pugnacity but Wilson certainly isn't, he's opposed to goons. He likes speed, and offense, and he is beginning to win me over too. This team has outright dominated some good teams, albeit mostly for short periods of time, but our speed is giving teams absolute fits.

Phaneuf defended himself and ended up being given a penalty for it, it was one of those games not to mention the cheap shots behind the whistle had the Leafs responded would likely have been called for those also. Toronto won the game, they just lost the refereeing.

For one thing, if the Leafs play a smart road game, use their speed to break Ottawa down, test their struggling goalie early and often and take very few penalties like they have, Ottawa will be shooting themselves in the foot if they try to run us at home. They're going in there for the two points, not to fight Nick Foligno. Nor do you build a team based on the fact that you got pissed off at one singular event against a dirty team that isn't even that good. Try to focus on the things that matter...

Great GTD. lot's of frustration on ottawa's side they'll be coming out strong but anderson is shaky so if we just drive the net and shoot the puck, we'll get this one. i bet Lupul is excited and will be a beast tonight! all that booing will get him going, him and Kessel are due for a good game! GO LEAFS GO!!!

and with Brown and Armstrong back we're good. were not hear to fight, we're here for 2 points. brown will fight for anybody if konopka or neil are ****ing around...

Grabo's line will be matched against spezza's tonight.Hopefully they do as good a job as they had against Malkin's line last game. Great to see Wilson matching lines,and shadowing a bit now.

I hope Brownie knocks out Konopka.

Brown should wear a sweater made of paper so we can see how Konopka can fight without holding on for dear life.
