How has there not been a pre-game thread yet?

Anyways...

Actually..

Could be good for us to quietly steal a point or two away from the glare of To. right now.

**** no Lupul. Very concerning, throw in the towel if he isn't back soon

Lupul is the lifeline of this team

Four of our next five games are against either NYR or NJ, both of whom are within 5 points of us, as well as a game vs. the Habs. This next week is gonna be huge if we don't want to find ourselves in 8th place and facing the Penguins in the first round (or worse yet, in 9th).

Same. Although I see the Leafs losing this one, unfortunately A lot of juggling with the lines, hopefully they click right away.

This is not a national game (Ontario only). So am hoping we dont' get Hughson, Simpson for a change.

Good chance of it going our way, imo.

Lupul is the lifeline of this team
He's played 10 games and we're tied for fifth. This team has found ways to win without him. He makes us that much better when he's in the line up obviously but I know this team can find ways to win without him till he gets back. They've proven that already this year. Go Leafs Go. Leafs 4 Devils 2

We were doing fine without him when he was injured earlier this season. But now there's more of a struggle.

EDIT: Guy above me beat me to the same statement pretty much.

Yes But we had to bring it out there. Lupul has only played 10 games this season. He does increase the Leafs chances of victory but we did not make the playoffs because of him. Kadri has been carrying this team most games and Reimer has been solid.

You forgot to add one of these

Seriously, no need to be so melodramatic. 2012-13 - Lupul out for 27 games with a broken forearm.

Not having Lupul in the lineup is a huge loss but they still have 22 other players who can step in and compete.


edit: holy **** same comments within minutes apart lol

best depth in the league in my opinion... not many teams can just slot in a Macarthur on your top lines when an injury occurs, and he will play like a legit top 6 forward with Kadri.

Why are we not putting Frattin back with Kadri? There was chemistry there.

He was slotted with Kadri yesterday after the Lupul injury. I guess Carlyle didn't like what he saw.

If O'Byrne isn't in the lineup on saturday, then what was the point in trading away a draft pick?

I know it was only a 4th round pick in next years draft, but if he's going to just sit in the press box, then there was no need to bring him up. You could have easily called up someone from the Marlies. Hopefully he gets into the lineup on saturday.

Maybe Carlyle is trying to implement his system into him during practise first. Who knows.

A huge loss as I mentioned, but the team needs to find a way to overcome difficult situations when missing key players. Let me put this another way:

Sens: Spezza, Michalek, Anderson, Cowen, Karlsson
Leafs: Lupul
