Kostka played 27:02 tonight. Fricking insane. He is doing decent, but you can't expect him to play that much and be effective.

Not a really exciting game, but Miller was outstanding. Good for Kadri continuing his production out there.

Doesn't get any easier though. The Pens will be a tough game.

Gotta hit the net more, and our PP has to change somehow, we just pass the puck around until we lose it like morons, and that's if we even get into the zone.

Not looking forward to the Pens.

We can not win these type of low scoring games with scrivens playing. We can not even score with scrivens playing in front of the net. He has to be pulled and traded. We need other players (goalies).

Pittsburgh game has already been lost.

What would be the result of that game?

6-2 Pens?

I like growth, sure.

But another finish in 10/11/12 place means we pick another player that doesn't impact this team for 3-4 years, if at all.

A lower finish = impact player.

I'm not a tanker, I'm pulling for the playoffs like any fan should, there's just a part of me that would rather see us either make it, or convincingly not, and add a leader up front.

even the idea of playing against pittsburgh with ether one of these stupidos is alarming.

Make a trade or lose the season.
three goals in two games, I'll take that anytime

KGM starts slow every year. Give 'em a few games before we banish all of them.

The Good -

Phaneuf - two games in a row now playing very responsible D
Kostka - really like his instincts at both ends of the ice, he's earned the ice time he's getting
Kadri - more ice time please! looks dangerous as ever and it looks like he's even smarter with the puck
Bozak - could have easily had a couple more assists in this game, although if he's gonna be on the PP he's gotta learn to let it rip every once in a while
Komarov - like his game, he'll be around for a while
Scrivens - Not spectacular but 3 GA in 2 games is hard to complain about

Meh -

Kessel/Lupul - had a couple chances but pretty weak couple of games to start the season
Fraser - decent presence, would much rather have seen Franson
JVR - definitely the weak link on the 3rd line right, get the feeling he's putting a lot of pressure on himself


Bad -

KGM - replace Mac with Frattin and I'd bet this line gets it together, nothing so far



Keeping things in perspective, a decent game against a solid team. Sucks we couldn't get one on an extended 5 on 3 but we hit like 3 posts. Couple of those go in and we're 2-0.

typical Leaf game...we hit the post twice and none of them goes in...Bufflo no posts...if one of those went in, we have a different outcome.

Clear difference in talent, some players just have a knack creating offence, some work very hard with little results. That's the key point of the 2, Bozak had a fantastic game tonight also, he hit, won face-offs, made 2 great passes, the guy was a workhorse tonight. Lupul needs to get it going, Kessel too. Kessel looks rusty. Dion was solid tonight, one of the best games I have seen from him. Even though we lost.
Yes agree that Bozak played a monster game....his line mates not so much....bad at tracking the puck and hesitant in going to the dirty areas. Kessel had some great chances as a result of some hard work by others and did not bury.

Kadri is as promised, gifted hands and great vision....he is tough as well......just how the hell did Wilson keep him off the Leafs roster...shows just how much he knows about assessing talent.

Leafs won 49/64 faceoffs. 70.3%

Strength of the leafs on the faceoffs or the weakness of Buffalo at faceoffs?

Agreed. I thought Scrivens was solid for us, especially in the third with some nice saves. I'd give him another chance to see what we've got.

Also better to start Reimer against a weaker team to see what he's got.

Meh Kadri was invisible tonight until the puck bounced on his stick with an open net.

Top 5 pick here we go.

The Jets have such a great home record because they play in a division that makes absolutely no sense geographically. Southeast teams have the longest travel of any division team in the NHL when they go to Winnipeg. Most of the Eastern conference has to travel a stupid distance to get to Winnipeg. That makes a bigger difference than the fans, who's noise is overrated seeing as how they're the smallest arena in the NHL.

All in all cant be too upset. Buffalo is our nemesis. Have been for most of the past 20 years ive seriously watched hockey.

Dion was excellent tonight. Kadri needs more ice time.

2nd and 3rd lines need to be shuffled. Switch Komarov and Mac.

Ok and Reimer would do any better? Scrivens has given up 3 goals in 2 games. Like I said he provided us a chance to win and if we played a bit better we could've won the game..Scrivens played well
