They really wanna toy with us to the very end, don't they?
Awful game and while he wasn't the only player having a bad game, I was really annoyed watching Gardiner play tonight. I was even more annoyed that Carlyle paired him with Phaneuf. This is the same guy you sat in the press box for several games because he hasn't been playing well defensively and you decide to to put with your #1 dman and let him face top guys all night long. Every time Gardiner touched the puck tonight, I actually thought to myself that I would rather have Kostka in there because at least he's throwing his body around and blocking shots all over the ice.
The loss was a total team effort tonight and what sucks the most is that it started off so promising. I don't know why but the the Leafs don't play the Isles well. They didn't last season and they haven't this season. I don't think any lead is safe when the Leafs play against the Isles.
I'm not sure what Carlyle needs to say to them but he's gotta figure something out because the team is becoming complacent. While it's going to take an outstanding run of the table by the Jets for us to not make playoffs, this team is still holds their fate in their hands. They need to figure out a way to keep that power in their court and not end up relying on other teams losing.
This team is ****. I refuse to believe it is the coach's fault. I have a feeling with all the media attention all the players' heads are swollen. This off season I want to see a lot of changes. Somthing is not right here...Same story every year. I want to see hard working players not the "I am entitled" players on this team anymore. Enough is enough
Must be nice for Tavares to always come home and always have a great game. CAN WE PUT THIS GUY ON HIS ASS ONCE AND A WHILE!! Holy **** talk about playing soft against him. No wonder all these Toronto boys have great games...we allow them to play like it's a home game for them. Hit these ****ers and nail them on their behind!
***** this team. If we don't slice Ottawa open on Saturday, I'll going to kill the servers. Scratch Fraser, he's awful. You have 3 pylons on skates in Franson, Fraser and O'Bryne back there. This team loves making it harder for themselves.
