CMac needs to drop the gloves. He's our dark horse that'll kick the hell out of a lot of guys. See; Larose, Chad and Spacek, Jaroslav.
The thing is Rinaldo uses speed in his fighting style. Fraser uses brute strength. It'll be a mismatch if the two do fight in one way or another, or it'll be a hug fest.

Rinaldo is a high-volume puncher like Brown.. you're right though, Fraser is brute, so unless he ties up Rinaldo's hands like he did with Prust, it may be a short scrap.

Have a feeling this will be another chippy affair. However, this time the opposing team atleast stands up for themselves.

Carlyle is smart, we have the last change. We won't have Rinaldo on the ice without Fraser, McClaren or Orr engaging him.

Here's hoping for a good game. The Montreal game has really got me fired up for games again.

True, if Fraser can last the first ~5-7 shots from Him, Rinaldo's in a heap of trouble.

Fraser is 6'3" and Rinaldo is 5'10"... Doubt they go at it

If they do let's hope Fraser shows up like his fights from the Marlies, or we wont here the end of it

Total size mismatch. How would Rinaldo even connect with Fraser? Reach advantage would be huge.

He'd have to get inside quick. Thats why I said its either gonna be a mis match (whether it be Rinaldo getting in a quick few blows and Frazer tries for the take down, or Fraser completely dominating) or just a hug fest because Rinaldo doesn't want it or Fraser ties him up too much

Where does Brown fit when he's ready? I guess it depends if they keep winning or not. The old: "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

Him, McLaren and Orr will be rotated in and out of the line up, the real question is what dman is sent down/waived/traded when gunnarsson gets back. We only have 1 free roster spot

Yup, I think Orr will be a mainstay give seniority. McClaren and Brown will rotate. To be honest, I'd like to see Brown moved for a 3/4th. He is too small for that role.

Flyers 1-5 on the road, Leafs 1-4 at home.


Something's gotta give... Go Leafs Go!

Fraser knows how to keep guys out of range. Prust is way more seasoned than Rinaldo and he struggled in that fight. Rinaldo is just wild throwing haymakers - he will be knocked out flush very soon. The guy doesn't protect himself at all.

I know this makes the most sense but damn I would love to see Mclaren, Orr and Brown in at all times. But then what about McClemment . Obviously that won't happen but it sure would be fun!

Praying for Orr today, hopefully he survives Shelley. Orr always makes me nervous even though I know he's tough. I can't decide whether I want this game to be tame or rowdy. Philly has a lot of toughness through their lineup with Rinaldo, Sestito, Shelley, B Schenn, L Schenn, Simmonds

Very well done Jmc!

Couldn't see it properly on my cell phone earlier, but this is pretty darn impressive.

I hope this GDT sets the benchmark for rest of the season, and same for hoping last Leafs game set benchmark for their play as well.

Go Leafs Go

Faster, more skilled, and deeper unit could spell Flyers trouble spelled: L-E-A-F-S

Shelley got pumped in by Rosehill last time he played the leafs and Orr is just a bigger stronger version of Rosehill, I have no worries here. Simmonds is just coming off of a concussion, Brayden Schenn got KO'd by the heavyweight Ilya Kovalchuk and Luke Schenn. You mean the guy who played here and got tuned up pretty much every time he fought in his time here? Sestito and Rinaldo are my only worries

If brown comes back, I can see C-mac being a healthy scratch vs tougher teams, or soft rivalry teams like the habs HAHA. C-mac hasnt been producing so he could sit out. Our bottom six looking something like

Brown-Kadri-Frattin
Orr-mcclement-Mclaren
