These games vs. WPG are a chance to put 8 or 9 points between us, but what a putrid effort today. Especially the defense. Holzer and Kostka were terrible. Gunnarsson wasn't much better. Phaneuf had some giveaways. Franson and Fraser got caught on the Wellwood goal. Not impressed with anyone, to be honest, forward or defense.
Randy better get his head together and give these rookie d-men a break. Mobility on the back end is a HUGE issue that's becoming more and more apparent by each game.
Changes I'd like to see for Thursday:
- Kostka and Holzer sit (don't have to bring up Gardiner, though I wouldn't mind to see it happen), put Komisarek and Liles in, if for nothing else to give the kids a breather
- Scrivens in the net
- hopefully Lupul in the lineup so we don't need to watch Orr and Mclaren both in the lineup at the same time.
This is Costco's and lolzers team. Carlyle better take his fat head out of his ass soon before it truly is 18 wheeler off the cliff . I don't understand how you can not see the leafs have been playing worse for the past 10+ games.
Tonights game was awful to watch...couldn't stand the Jets crowd so I watched a majority of the game in silence.
That being said, this game was lost mostly because the Jets outworked us and the bounces didn't go our way, especially on that 5 on 3 Power Play.
Seriously, Kostka and Holzer need to sit a few games, they've been awful these past few games.
