Haha that would be epic. but none of our goalies have that mean side to him so i doubt happens. It would definitely reignite the rivalry though.

I remember when Eddie Belfour was our goalie. He used to give a nice stick chop to the back of the knee to anyone that got close to him.

Call me silly but I like to see the goon line with a defensively responsible center. It was sad last year watching the Leafs loose AND get beat up. At least this year when they lose they don't get beat up. Also, think it makes some players an inch taller with Orr in the lineup.

A win tonight and a loss by Ottawa would be nice. The Sens are playing like **** this afternoon against the Jets. Hopefully, the Leafs come out with a strong effort tonight.

Weird, but good, reading someone talk about the standings. Let's hope they mean something in a couple months.

I've been thinking this since 2011, Reimer needs to be meaner. Komisarek should be in the lineup tonight, not only has he been great all season, he always plays well against the Habs (besides that one game, Cammo).

Every game counts, especially this season. The standings in our conference are pretty tight right now. A couple of straight wins can mean a lot.

Although they still lost in a SO, still one of my favorite Leafs vs. Habs moment.

Guys and girls, it's all in good fun to rib the Hobbitants but lets keep the ethnic/racial slurs to ourselves even if you think it's mild, there is no tolerance for it on HFBoards. Thanks

Carlyle messing up the lines again for MacArthur. The lines should be:

van Riemsdyk-Bozak-Kessel
McClement-Grabovski-Kulemin
Komarov-Kadri-Frattin
MacArthur/Maclaren-Steckel-Orr

Those defence pairings bring a tear to my eye; out of the 6 players, this is by far my favourite arrangement for them (without arguing who should and should not be there).

I'm also fine with the forwards; but MactArthur is definitely starting to look like an extra.

GO LEAFS!!

ottawa loses.

a win tonight and the crappy blow-em-up leafs would pass both MTL and OTT, and could tie VAN for most points for any canadian team.

It needs to be remembered that Lupul and macArthur going down; along with the Gunner injury (even Komi was good before the idiotic accident); Carlyle has not had much of a choice spreading the team the way he did.

I think Carlyle is showing that he is understanding and learning from deficiencies in the roster. It's been years since we've seen the right people rewarded with ice time (Kadri, Frattin, Holzer); while those that do not deserve it are not getting it (Lombardi, Connolly, the MacArthur slide). He has a vision for what each roster spot should look like and he attempted some players in spots many would not have agreed with; but it set up a belief that you will be given chances and it's your fault if you blow them. Slowly the roster is becoming solidified; the players we want to see as fans; are being put in the places we feel they should be. The perk of it all is that they earned those spots; Carlyle didn't give it to them.

Things to watch:
- Kostka should continue to fall from top pairing/PP
- Kadri/Frattin should be given more minutes
- MacArthur will be on his way out; with Lupul returning
- Holzer will remain with this team
- Frazer/Franson will have to be consistent; as one of them is about to drop from the lineup
- Reimer needs to prove he is still the starter
- Komarov will remain in the top 9; as long as he continues to be the hardest working player on the ice (I can't wait to see him share a line with Kulemin; get ready for some open ice Grabo).
- JVR will have to prove he should stay in the top line; when Lupul finally returns
- Kadri/Frattin need PP time

Those are all things we are currently seeing in progress; I trust Carlyle in continuing to assess the perks and shortfalls of this team. It's time to breathe; we have a competent guy at the helm.

I can actually watch the game without muting it; brilliant!

AHL is not bad
it's our farm team
