Okay, Kadri has been successful where he is. Mac has practiced with Bozak and Kessel. So for at least tonight, Mac should be with Kessel and Bozak.

Also, no one said Mac is a top line winger, however Grabo, JVR and Kulemin had a great night, so we don't want to split them up. Kadri is doing good at #3 C, Komarov isn't a top line winger. So that leaves MacArthur....

Could we see Kadri on with Kessel and Bozak down the road if Lupul is gone for 6-8 weeks.... maybe

Let's hope that you are right though and that they will learn from their mistakes in this coming game. If this team is going to take a step forward this year have got to win all the games they can. Hope Carlyle can keep them honest and taking the Islanders seriously.
I am a big supporter of Lupul's talent but that doesn't mean we should be sour about phaneuf's shot being strong as advertised. It was unfortunate but by my count so far three of phaneuf's shot has lead to a goal and we need him to get that form back again as we have no other D with that shot. Plus it helps we actually have a defense oriented coach that was a norris trophy winner.

Playoffs or not all I can hope for is Kessel continues to play his defensive game he's showing and become better and learn to score some garbage goal and our player like Kadri become beter.

Orr/Gunnarsson take a day of rest
This seems reasonable, I think Orr stays in though.

The Isles offense looked unbelievably good in the 1st/2nd period against the Lightning. They were fluid and basically unstoppable, super impressive. That said, they lapsed for 10 mins in the 3rd and almost lost the game(again).
I think it is going to be hard for us to beat you guys, ESPECIALLY if DP is in the net. I think you guys are going to have to beat yourselves.

No chance Kadri moves to the wing to replace Lupul.

Let's get 2 points, don't care how. Kessel potting one or two in the process wouldn't hurt either.

Would it be better to have Frattin be inserted into the 3rd line on the wing of The Human Krayon, or to have him inserted into the left wing where Lupul was? Because Frattin seemed to show good chemistry with Kadri on the Marlies. Yet who would play top line then?

To be honest, he has been good. There are a few things he has done better so far compared to last year... his shot looks better. He has been a great set up man, but the first two games he has shown a bit more of a goal scorers play (even though he has no goals).
Also, to be honest, if you knew nothing about the Islanders at all and watch the first two games, you would think Grabner is our "star" player. He is one of the fastest in the league, but I dont know if its from playing overseas and it will wear off as others get there mojo back, but he seems to be a step ahead of everyone.

Yeah, I love Grabner, has speed to kill. Him and Tavares can grow to be a deadly duo. I really think this could be the season where Tavares "breaks out" and has a real great season.

What about Nabby? Does he look to have any of his magic back that he had in San Jose?

MacArthur - Bozak - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - Kulemin
Komarov - Kadri - Brown
McClement - Steckel - Orr

If Frattin doesn't get called up, I think you go with that. They should also stick with the same D

McClement gets bumped up to third line minutes. He is strong along the boards and can atleast cycle, you lose this with Brown being slotted in on the third line.

According to TSN 1050 it appears the Leafs have called up Matt Frattin.

The basis..... A water bottle with the number 39 (Frattin's number) on it lol

It was a given it would be Frattin or Connolly. Frattin slots in for Lupul.

I wonder how they will put Franson into the lineup. And I really hope steckel isn't slotted into tonights game...we lose if him/connolly play.

Lol. Carlyle must be going nuts trying to keep secrets with the media attention. All water bottles to be coded until game time in future.

As much as Kessel needs a big body to play with, JVR isn't coming off Grabovski's line after last night.

MacArthur - Bozak - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - Kulemin
Frattin - Kadri - Komarov
Brown - McClement - Orr

To start, I think

I predict that Kessel will get a goal tonight. Leave Reimer in net. I'm more comfortable with him in there. I respect the Isles talent. They have a lot of dangerous players. It's going to be a close game but we should pull through. GO LEAFS GO!
