Only caught bits and pieces of that game as I was in and out of my house but they played very well from what I saw!

Ricoh's been full or almost full in the playoffs, going by the game sheet. I believe it was 7500 on Monday, 6300 today.

And that's somehow going to translate into 10k+ in the ACC?

Let them sell out the Ricoh.

It would be silly to overlook OKC at this point but Norfolk is a different kind of beast....can we beat them?

A lotta fun, and Frattin is definitely too good for the AHL. He wasn't on the score sheet, but he was buzzing and creating a lot of chances. We didn't have many shots, but had tons of great scoring chances.

Was at the game tonight. Extremely impressed with D'amigo's all around game. He was a force. Gregg Scott, Will Acton really stepped it up and played impressive games. Deschampes Dupuis and Frattin were the only top 6 forwards creating any offense. We definitely capitalized when we needed to tonight. Extremely disappointed in colborne. The last few games ive seen him play have been awful. He avoids contact like its the plague, spent the evening floating around the ice. Almost every shift he was caught out of position and the wingers needed to fill in defensively for him. I'm not sure if its the tight checking of the AHL and the lack of space but he really doesn't give anything extra out there. Glad to see colty. Gave the team a ton of energy attempting to destroy people along the boards (almost killing himself a couple of times). Abbott had a semi decent showing. He doesnt seem very comfortable in the pro game as of yet, however he was much more engaged then Colborne. Not very many high percentage shots from OKC, however scrivens closed the door

As for defense Holzer, Fraser were solid. Gardiner had flashes but nothing out of the ordinary, he seems to play better with more space which is created in the NHL.

My three stars

#1 Jerry D'amigo
#2 Nicolas Deschampes
#3 Will Acton

Of course the shut out to scrivens is a given.

it wouldn't be crazy to think we could get 15000 in the acc for the final

Crappy camera-phone, a Galaxy Nexus. Low light, a lot of cheering, ehhh, whatever




Seats were not bad, a family 4 pack is $39.25 each ($137 total), and you get parking and a food voucher. $40 bucks for basically gold level seats(compared to the ACC).

Was at the last game, and wish I was at this one too! Great game, I really like Frattin he's a machine. Hope Scrivens keeps playing like this, I would love it if he competed for a spot on the Leafs next season.

I don't know just how bad it was because I never saw him play back then, but it hardly seems to be holding him back all that much now.

I've also been pretty impressed with Pitlick. I can't recall if he's scored in this series yet, but he's definitely been more of a physical presence than I expected and seems to do a lot of the 'little things' right.

Paajarvi has been good as well but I think everyone saw that coming. He'll be a top-six guy in the NHL for sure.
Hartikainen's skating could still use a boost but it is greatly improved. The guy is very strong and has a good shot, a potential power forward in the making. Pitlick has been slow to adapt to the pro game, but he's a young rookie and can already dish out some punishment, the Oilers have high hopes for this kid. And yeah Paajarvi is to us what Kadri is to your club, young and highly touted so you'd hope that both guys have good showings this postseason. It's too bad that Kadri has been hurt but the Barons need all of the help that they can get right now!

Dallas Eakins could have taught Ron Wilson a thing about coaching. He has muliple systems all based on defence first, with even with the loss of 2 main offensive contributers Ziggy and Kadri, they will find ways to win. The beat goes on, again Deschamps is impressing as a possible key 3rd liner. Good instincts and starting to use his size.

I am really interested in hearing just what it is ailing colborne besides the finger, he doesn't look anything close to normal.

Was he even taking draws ?

a petty, lame personal shot because you have no other argument. i'd say something back to you, but i have no idea who you are.

do you have anything to say about the topic?

there's no evidence that having the farm team in the same city actually helps the leafs. simply saying, "if you can't see the benefits, you're stupid", isn't evidence. and if it was such a big help, every team would have done it by now.

after 7 years with no positive results, you'd think people would have given up on this myth by now. but i don't think its ever going away.

Every team would probably do it if their pockets were as deep as MLSE. They take a loss financially pretty much every year with the Marlies being here. But having them in Toronto gives them the benefit of letting the kids experience the city and keep them nearby so all the different coaches can continue working with them.

most teams take financial losses on their farm team anyways. pocket depth isn't relevant. if it was such a big benefit to the parent team, every organization would have their farm team in the same city.

Mist teams dont take losses on their AHL teams because they don't owN THEM.
