Wow, it's unbelievable that a preseason game thread had over 1000 posts.

Can you tell Leafs Nation is starved for hockey? Good hockey?

Wasnt a big Hanson fan last season but have to admit hes gotten better. He had a very strong game tonight and should round into a decent 3rd liner.

Zeke asked "why would you deal Poni, and keep Stemp?"

Poni brings considerable value back and I don't think he is in their plans after this season. Stempy I think will improve and right now has to play his way back to having any value at all.
Stempniak would be out to make space for Kessel when the time comes. If he really comes on, maybe he pushes one of the others out, but in any case the goal is to ice a strong lineup. The only reason I would deal Poni is because they have potential replacements and I think he is on the way out.
He is a better player than Stajan IMO but infinitely more replaceable with their current options.

honestly dude, your selling him short.

he was a force in NCAA hockey, has elite hockey sense, and a nack for putting the puck in the back of the net.


our top 6 is shaping up rather nice:

?-kadri-kessel
hanson-bozak-stalberg

they all bring very good skill to the table.

I find it hilarious that some Pitts fans believe that the first Leaf goal was interference. Their goalie was completely outside of the blue paint, are they kidding?

They shouldn't kid themselves, the goalie saw Bozak, went out of his crease to challenge Bozak by attempting to run into him, and completely missed Stahlberg on the side.

just watched the game:

i had no idea beauchemin had a shot like that...
kadri played another solid game and likes the big game moments and wow on the shootout
stalberg is really making a case for himself, while he had some mistakes, they were rookie mistakes and his speed is great...
bozak had another solid game and so did hanson but i still feel that hanson needs to get infront of the net, that needs to be his house

Maybe but I'll have to see more of what I saw tonight on a regular basis before I'm convinced he's a legit top 2 liner. Hes a great skater but sometimes his hands and legs move at different speeds and because of this his stickhandling can become very sloppy. I like his work ethic and willingness this preseason to get physical. I was impressed by his play tonight and hopefully we see more, but as of right now I think hes more of a solid future 3rd liner then 2nd liner.

In their defense, officiating has been very inconsistent the last few years with regards to Goaltender Interference. I believe the right (no) call was made, but I've definitely seen less deserving (GI) penalties get called.

To follow up last thread, why on Earth would we dump away Poni when he is already developed into a NHL calibre 2nd line player. This guy proved himself last year down the stretch LEADING the team in scoring. He is starting to drive the net more and scores goals off tip-ins. Unless the return is absolutely amazing, this guy should be resigned not thrown away.

That is true, but if that is their reasoning then calling this play interference would just add to the problem.

I could be wrong, but if a goalie comes out of his crease the interference call should be waived.
