Apparently even in juniors he had a reputation of doing anything to win.

Darcy was the key to the first line comming out of it's dormant state of game one. He brings so much more to the table then Renberg can every night he plays. He drew checks from the Senator defensemen and with his own hitting opened up the ice for Roberts and Sundin to do their thing. I don't remember who first said this but it is accurate- "Tucker is the only person who looks like he is playing in the Stanley Cup finals and not the first round".

My favorite Tucker play last night was his little fight behind the net late in the third where he took the puck behind the Sen's net and he would not give it up despite the four Sens players banging at him in a vain attempt to get the puck. Tucker had no support, as the Leafs were making a line change and he did not give up the puck until one of the fresh Leaf players arrived whom he kicked it to. Tucker takes a beating and keeps on playing.

vik.........

Tucker rocks and yes he is a Warrior!........Tucker was a winner in junior for the Kamloops Blazers and guys like him don't come around too often........He's not the biggest guy in the world but he plays with all heart and soul.........it often amazes me when I hear talk from some Leafs fans regarding the idea of trading away Tucker.........Tucker added some much needed grit to the Leafs lineup that they were missing in game #1 againt the Sens.....on this night Tucker was a leader and lead his mates by example........It rubbed off on some of the other players on the team as well.........guys that you wouldn't nornally see throwing their weight around were doing so last night...like Mats Sundin for example..........way to go Tucker!

Cheers!~

I would take him on my team any day of the week. Tucker should stay with the Leafs until he retires. He is the type of guy every team needs. He can put the puck in the net lay a big hit, disrupt an oppents game and did I mention he doesn't know the word quit and plays every shift giving it 200%.

I would love that, but eventually a time will come where he would not be able to play at this same intense level. He would be reduced to a minor role player, then all the "fans" will get on his case, and want him out of town. Probably call him "pu77y" and stuff. No respect.

I will always respect him. I don't like the coldness of that part of the game from the fans and the owners. Tucker will be affective right to the end of his carreer the same way Corson has been. People trash Domi and say he doesn't deserve to play. Domi has the Maple Leaf sown to his heart. I said all along he was saving his energy for the playoffs. Domi was the Leafs best player on the ice in the third period last night.

wow! what a great game it was last night! quinn did a great job in putting tucker in the first line with roberts and sundin. he was a little pest out there and he drove ottawa nuts. i love players like that, and that's why domi and tucker are 2 of my favorite leafs. and how about that hit by domi on hossa? it sure made him think twice about trying to score again.

and even though the leafs took a lot of penalties, cudos to their PK for not allowing a goal. but ponikarovski and antropov have to stay out of the penalty box. they took a lot of dumb penalties and it could have resulted in goals.

can't wait till tomorrow night. i have a feeling we'll be seeing one or two scraps during the game.

i'm out

GO LEAFS GO

That was a great shift. Tucker's helmet fell off & there he is keeping the puck in the offensive zone,banging his head against the boards a couple of times against 2 or 3 Senators just to kill some time to keep the lead. Tucker deserved the cheer's he got when he got off. It's great to see him back.

Hey at least your avator is not telling any lies. Because the Leafs have had their number over the last few years. That said we have choked quite a few times before as well but head to head we have bregging rights right now.
