This argument is absolute nonsense, by your account, Tyler Bozak also is a first liner. Mclemment can play in the first line to if you put there as he is good defensively and is a first liner as well?

Tlusty was hounded for being weak at defensive aspects of his games while producing offensively. He was begging for a change of scenario, we traded him for a piece that got us Versteeg which in return got us Tyler Biggs. Stop making it sound like we gave up Matt Duchene. The fact you put JVR together with Tlusty itself should be considered foolish.

Kessel should get lots of space tonight.

Should be 4-2, 5, 6 - 2 for the Leafs tonight.
Canes also have a tendency to randomly show up against us, so we shouldn't take this game for granted.

Trust me.
I honestly don't know why I don't have you on my ignore list yet, but this post needs to be crushed.

Tlusty 1 pt in 7 games. JVR has 5 pts in 8 games, while only getting a couple games at 1st line. JVR is also younger. He also has 29 more career points in 31 less career games. Tell me again how these 2 players are equal...

Come on have some faith.

There is no reason to fear this game unless the team truly is in need of a rebuild.

I forget. Is Ward one of those players who comes into Toronto and plays like Ryan Miller when he comes to Toronto?

Where do you put him? 2nd line with Grabbo and Kulemin?
I think JVR has fit in nicely on the 1st line

Maybe 3rd line with Kadri and Frattin, Mac can pass the puck pretty well. I've liked Komarov though, and McClement hasn't looked out of place on Grabo's wing. Tough to say.

Tlusty has some good skill as well as solid defensive play. That's the difference between him and McLement.

As we've already seen, Ron Wilson is not really a credible person to judge a defensive game (Steen, Colaicovo). Myself, I dont put much stock into what the worst coach the Leafs have had in decades has to say. He called Dion Phaneuf the best defenceman in the league at one point.

Tlusty would be a great player to have rather than a couple of longshot prospects.

That's all I was trying to say. No need to get defensive. I think it is a very valid criticism.

Hopefully Reims keeps up the solid play and we can squeeze out a win.
