Its sad, how they're handling Gus. He has played better this year.
I guess all that effort to sign him doesn't mean anything.

I've always said, Gus knows what he wants, and I don't know how
long he wants to wait out the battle. I hope he and the Leafs are
thinking longer term, knowing that he needs to play to earn his
credentials.

I can also sense a lot of "the Canadian guy is automatically better"
sentiment going around.

If Reimer plays tonight and plays great, than we know that it was Wilson's system that was killing him, give him a chance to play for Carlyle
Reimer got a shutout against pitt last time under wilson. This game wont tell us jack.

Gustavsson is starting?

Thought Reimer would be for sure. Hope the lines tonight look something like this:

Kulemin/Ashton - Bozak - Kessel
MacArthur - Grabovski - Frattin
Kulemin/Ashton - Steckel - Connolly
Rosehill - Lombardi - Brown

I think it's Schenn to Minny for a top 6 forward. They can't stop the puck from going in their net and I think they'd love to have Schenn. Didn't realize Harding was a UFA but I think they have a lot of top 6 talent on their team but no defense to help them.

no top 6 forward in Minnesota is worth losing Schenn for.

i have a feeling gus will walk away as a UFA probably to a team like detroit or tampa, and we'll see his numbers romantically improve, hes shown what he can do when goes on a roll just like he did in january, even last night you couldnt pin any of those 5 goals on him

How about the one that went over the net that he flopped around and looked ridiculous? That's the only one I was puzzled on.

Frattin-Grabovski-MacArthur
Connolly-Steckel-Ashton
Brown-Lombardi-Rosehill

Gunarsson-Phaneuf

I like it. The FGK second line was our best line last game IMO. Hope they keep it rolling.

Plus I want to see Franson back in!!!

why? keep burke, he has not done anything to improve this team, in 4 years. prospects any GM would of drafted players, yet to play in the NHL. grabo, fratten,kulimun, gunnersson, riemer, schenn were not his picks.
1st year he could of drafted higher, he went and got a goalie to move up in the standings, got kadri, which looks like will never play here.
2nd, got kessel, gave up a 2nd overall that year,(sequin) plus a second.
3rd gave up a 1st, again for kessel, top defenceman.
in between all those years bad ufa signings.
this year could get a top pick, but wants to make the playoffs.
team is to soft, not big enough, no center,no goalies
4 years , for this mess, thank god the priviouse manager drafted some good picks, and traded for some good players , burke needs to use, to keep this team in the NHL.

THIS IS THE TEAM BURKE HAS PUT TOGETHER IN 4 YEARS, DONT LOOK AT THE PROSPECTS, ANY GM WOULD OF DRAFTED PLAYERS TO.

LAMBO-CONNOLLY-STECKEL
BROWN-ARMSTRONG-MAC
