I think this is a big reason why Goalies trade values are lower recently, it's much harder to gauge their ability these days. Toskala looked great in San Jose, atrocious elsewhere.

When are we gonna see the time when Goalies are elite players on teams again? The Roy's, Brodeurs, Haseks, Josephs. Quick was sensational in the playoffs, but hasn't been great since, same goes for Caps goalie, Braden Holtby.
I think other than those names, Lundqvist comes to mind-he can single handly win games like those you mentioned.

Spot on. Carlyes system has been a huge part of both the leafs and Scrivens / Reimers success thus far.

What an upgrade over wilson

He's a jack of all trades, he's only 2 points behind Grabo, and 1 behind Macarthur.

An analogy...

Previously we have played hockey like an unskilled slugger of a boxer. Hoping to be able to get a knock out punch in with out protecting him self. 5-3, 3-5, 6-4, 4-6 etc

Now we are all of a sudden a skilled and tactical fighter who use his jab to keep the opponent at distance and hurt him a little bit before he deliver hard punches. Once he have the other guy at the ropes he crushes him.

Ok, time for bed

Played better than we did against Sens, but still a few things to work on.

With that said hard not to be happy with these constant team efforts, never really saw them with Wilson. Definitely slowly and cautiously getting more and more excited for the potential for post season action though.

Hey guys, so in what game do you guys project Matt Frattin to be back in? I just want to know how many potential games we can go with this lineup. I also want to know if we can thrown this lineup out against the Smurfs next week. I wanna see if they want revenge with this lineup out on the ice.

I think a huge and amazing decision is the entire 4th line, not just McClement. Burke was trying for "truculence" for years and Nonis does it in a matter of weeks. They do their job and I think the sense of protection makes everyone better. Wilson really screwed things up by demoting Orr.

No kidding .. Imagine what Kadri and Kessel will be able to do when:

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
Kule-Grabo-Komarov
JVR - Kadri -Frattin

And MacA is traded ... Ohh man

Is it too early to think that Kadri may be the real deal?

14 points in 16 games. Very good defensively. Very few mistakes. Drawing a ridiculous amount of penalties. Great playmaking. Hits.

Definitely still has 1C potential.

Also, Bozak is awesome.

Not that we have anything to talk about even without the picks.

People thought we needed a #1 goalie.

A 1/3 of the season gone and it looks like we have two.
