Yes, if Eagle can't play, let's go with telly. Kidd has given his all this past week but it's a lot of games in a few days to expect of him.
Kidd is accustomed to being the starter prior to signing with Toronto, so it's not like he can't handle the workload.
I understand the sentiment though.
I'm not particularly fond of Alfredsson either FWIW.
I'm seldom one to promote a fight, but Perrott seldom seems to do anything else and perhaps a fight will at least liven the game up for the poor fans in attendance.
I'm dubious Alfredsson would allow himself to be goaded into a fight however.
Welcome to Leafs Nation, leave your common sense at the door.
and i am betting that the blue and white will win that game!!!
Well, it will be interesting. Friday is Ken Daneyko night, so NJ better win that game and maybe pull off another win vs. Toronto. Burns also blew up after yesterdays awful game and questioned NJ's heart and character. Will NJ respond? I hope so.
You know, I have to admit that when I watched the highlights of the game, they showed Alf's stupid mockery, I found it amusing but it showed no class. Seriously, that guy just makes me want to have a fit. I hope Telly gets the start on Saturday if Belfour isn't back. I've never really had any faith in Kidd. Just when I was starting to get it back, he loses, but then again, we had many regulars out of the line up. Yikes, what a game.
Now that I've had an hour to cool down, that loss doesn't seem nearly as irritating as when we had just gone down 5-0. It was just an off night IMHO. However New Jersey will be a tough test, regardless if we have Belfour and Sundin back. It will take a smart, 60 minute effort, and DISCIPLINE.
The 7-1 score just further shows the Leafs that smart defensive play wins games, no matter how good you're playing.
The Devils called up today Rob Skrlac from Albany, he's a 6'5 245 pound winger who has played over 250 games there and has three goals, six assists and about 25,000 penalty minutes. My feeling is he was called up just for the Leafs (well actually Domi) Saturday night. This could be real intresting.
