That stupid drop pass on the powerplay has to go. It obviously isn't working.

No thanks. The guy gets paid 4.5M. We already have our fair share of overpaid bozos.

Go back and watch Reimer's games since his return and try to ascertain just why it is that people are complaining about Reimer.

It becomes evident rather quickly to most people. YMMV.
Sabres fans were ripping on Miller for months, even sparking some trade rumours.

Reimer had a fairly major injury that caused him to miss 2 months in his sophomore season, and you wonder why he's playing struggling?

This is why we can't have nice things. People preach rebuild, rebuild, rebuild, but when we have young roster players, they are all too willing to give up on them. I can't tell you how many times I've heard the word "bust" associated with Kadri, Schenn, and Reimer this year. Its pathetic.

Perfectly happy with Grabovski, he has been good ever since the signing. He looks charged.

You know, watching hockey when the sun is out makes me very sad.

The last time I watched Leafs hockey when the sun was out, was in the playoffs.

How I miss the playoffs.

Pretty even first period.

Not mad about the giveaway if its a designed set-up, but there's no compete after.



What is Joey Crabb even doing on this team? Does he know where he is or is it one of these Mystery Alaska things?

Obviously? this is the first time it's been picked off that badly, and our zone entry is still quite good because of it

Kessel was buzzing all over the place at the beginning of the season. Taking and dishing out a little physical contact, actually winning a battle occasionally on the boards.

That lasted about a month, and then it's back to his regular play. Unfortunately. Not that he hasn't been good, but he could be so much better if he stuck with it.

Your explanation for Reimer's poor play may be correct. But I was merely addressing your baffled reaction toward people's complaints regarding Reimer's play.

There's nothing baffling about people's complaints -- Reimer has played piss poor.

Again, your explanation for Reimer's piss poor play could be (and I hope is) correct.

Also, while I know you weren't directing this at me in particular, I've never associated the term 'bust' with Kadri or Schenn. I have associated it with Reimer, and if your explanation for his piss poor play is correct, then I'd be wrong to have done so.

It works perfectly fine when you mix it in with the other zone entry techniques. (dump and chase, tip in, carrying it over the line etc).

When they're doing it every single time, it's kind of easy to defend against. They're just sitting back and waiting for it. Mix it up!

Hahah I facepalmed countless times in the first quarter of the season when the Avs did it constantly.

Didn't notice this without looking at the box score but Schenn's gotten half the TOI of Phaneuf

Carlyle did give Fowler a tonne of TOI even when Fowler was a liability (he's better now)....Fowler could generate offense though unlike Schenn.

Ashton very good at protecting the puck. Not the greatest skater. Also wish he would throw his weight around a little more. Doesn't look out of place though.
