Take the lesser of the two evils - though I don't particularly dislike the Leafs team/roster (other than Nonis) - can't say the same about the Bruins (dislike the players/coach/owner/etc.,).

nobody is just blaming Luongo for the loss

Sedins are really the ones receiving the criticism

You'd rather hear about how it was Schneider's fault....makes sense.

If they come back and win this series, they will have to be playing crazy good - so I can see them winning another round.

He respects his edler......maybe that's his problem. Edler is horse-**** and a prime reason for this team not playing well.

Plenty of people are saying that the team could have won with Schneider in net. I keep hearing how Luongo let the team down at the end yet again. I guess I'd rather see their delusions crushed now rather than later so I that I won't have to hear about how Schneider is the savior.

Edler did play poorly, but I'm keeping the name because it's great.

Edler has been a mess the last 2 playoff series...but I'm inclined to blame the coaching when it comes to our defense on the whole. IMO their deficiencies are abundantly apparent yet the coaches do nothing to put them in a situation where they might mitigate the weaknesses.

There is no "savior" for this team...it's going to need to be a complete team effort in order to win.

The players on the ice in the final minute last night were ridiculous. The twins can't play in their own end. For instances like that it should be Kesler, Higgins, Lappierre, Burrows, Garrison, Hamhuis. Take a timeout if you have to. Keep Casual Kev, Special Edler, and the nitwits off the ice.

Hansen, Roy, anyone you're see on the PK besides Ebbett really. Or just don't put the puck into the slot for no reason?

Kesler is pretty close. That was an epic performance last night. Linden was like that in '94. These are the types of players you need to win. The Sedins are not these kinds of players.

I know it's unlikely and a very difficult concept, but I wish the team would look at moving the twins for some younger blue chip types. I hope Gillis explores it.

A huge part of the problem is the craptastic PP. The Sedins need to stop trying to make cute plays all of the time and Edler needs to be off the point. Fast, crisp passes and not so much hanging onto the puck like a deer in the headlights until the lane closes.

I'm afraid I have to agree with this here.

Could try no Daniel on the 1st PP unit.

Roy - Hank - Burrows
Kesler - Garry

Or if you wanna get crazy.

Kesler - Hank - Burrows/Roy
Corrado - Garry

Roy should be on the point on the pp, hes proven in the past to be pretty proficient in that position.

You mean like Boston did in game 3 of the cup finals? You have to have the league in your back pocket for that to work.

If it helps, I think we'll win game 3. I predicted we'd lose games 1 and 2, but for whatever reason I don't see us losing tomorrow.

AV must figure out how to get the twins going if we are going to come back in this series. The obvious answer is to put Kassian on their line. He's shown a spark in this series, and he's played well with them previously. That's one change. We also need something else from the D pairings. I'm not sure what to say about it because without Tanev there are no clear answers. But it's clear Edler-Bieksa is a disaster right now, mostly because of Edler.

This team can come back. Last night the difference between a solid effort that ends in heartbreak and a dominating win is a good night from the twins. We need them to find some kind of spark, somehow.

I've never blamed coaching for this club's failures. I've said that I think AV is borderline hall of fame if he wins a cup. But AV and his staff aren't impressing me with what they've done in this series. Too passive wrt adjustments, too much emphasis on physical play, too much Ebbett. But I still think if they can get the twins going we can win this series.

In order to jumpstart the offense, AV should split the twins.


Burrows-Hank-Kass

Daniel-Kesler-Hansen

Lapierre-Roy-Higgins

Raymond-JS-Weise


Defense pairings can remain, though I much prefer Bieksa and Hamhuis together.

Depends on how Garrison and Edler can do together.
