Last game before Christmas, last chance to stop the 3 games skid and hit the Christmas break on a good note ... the Stars are no walk in the park though, and I'm sure they are looking for revenge after their last game against us.

The buds have demonstrated, once again, this is a team that can turn from very hot to very cold on a dime, and not only we've lost 3 in a row, but we've lost pretty uglily.

Let's hope the buds actually show up for the game tonight.


Go Leafs Go!!!!

I hope they show up. Dallas too is a very inconsistent team. They are on a high right now but can go the other way! I'm terrified of the next 15 games or so. They could burry us. The leafs need to take the ones they can win.

I've been off for the 7-4 Philly loss, the 4-0 Chicago loss, the 4-1 Carolina loss, the 9-2 Nashville loss, and the 6-2 Buffalo loss. Most of the wins I've been working.

Amazing.

This ****ing line can't even maintain possession when on the powerplay.

How much of this shit does Randy have to see?

It's stunning to me that this guy isn't fired. I mean, you can argue that his top line is a possession nightmare, but he's the one who plays them....together....at every opportunity.

Oh, and Phaneuf is 10x better when he's playing angry. Legit game changer when he's being physical.

Isn't this what Clarkson is supposed to do? Roussell has been targeting Phaneuf all night...isn't our pest/middleweight supposed to go at theirs?

Why is Dion Phaneuf fighting some ****ing 3rd liner?

Gardiner is the biggest pussy on the club by far. Will do almost anything to avoid getting hit.

Phaneuf flattens his man with a clean hit.
Franson flattens his man with a clean hit.
Kadri next? Hell, if they're going to let the Stars control all the third period play because Randy can't split up his darling boys on the top line, then let's at least knock the wind out of another Star with another clean hit.
I'd ask for Clarkson to make a hit, but the only thing he can hit is the boards...

I would love to see a deal to see Gardiner and Clarkson go to Edmonton. It would give them two players with term so they have to stay.

Sacrifice the value of Gardiner to get rid of Clarkson. I think i'd be on board.

Bernier with a big comeback game after the last game.

I hope Phanuef isn't hurt. That would be some bullshit.

As Mindz said, Clarkson should be the guy fighting. He should be the one needing icepacks on his hands.

I was out and about for most of this game, so I listened to a bunch of on the radio...and holy shit, was I reminded of how much I miss Joe Bowen & Jim Ralph.


ach i can't even enjoy 4-0 wins anymore.
Yeah, I hear ya. It's tough to enjoy it too much when it's the same unsustainable BS formula for a Leaf win; we score 4, give up 40+ shots and the goalie plays fantastic. And now these chumps go home feeling good about themselves, and will likely try to pull the same routine in our next game against Florida.

Yeah I know..he hit the post 3 times and had 7 quality chances. Did I mention he hit the post 3 times? But anyway..he had 7 quality chances. I'm not sure if they mentioned this though but...he hit the post 3 times and had 7 quality chances. :prrr:

Phaneuf - "...we played a really solid road game..."
I don't know how much Carlyle can be blamed for the shots against totals, but something has to be done.

I've been saying it for a while, Gardiner is shit right now. So much skill, so little shit giving.

If Kessel hit 3 posts we would not hear it at all. Seguin doesn't score and it did not matter.

Sometimes you win games that you don't deserve, and good teams win those games ... last night's example is one of those.

I'd take the win, and anytime you stop the losing skid at 3 it's a good thing, but let's not pretend we're starting to turn things around, cause we sure aren't.

There are too many players who believe if they play hard for 5 min in a 20 min period they can win the game and have a successful season, and last night's an example of how it can be done - Unfortunately it also takes your goalie standing on his head to do that, and you simply can't have sustained success playing this style.

The good news is, Dallas also plays this style of hockey, and when we trade chances, in both games against them, we prove we have more offensive weapons than them that we can win a shootout contest against them. But most teams aren't going to trade chances with us and I hope Shanny & Co, takes a long hard look at this team during the Christmas break to analyze where we're at. Allowing avg of 34 shots is ridiculous, having 9 games with 40+ shots at the half point mark of the season is crazy.

The positives from last night though, was it was a rock solid game by our captain, and somehow we should figure out a way to get Dion pissed before every game, cause an angry Dion is sure a lot more effective.

And, Kadri continues to produce and him and JVR are proving you don't HAVE to keep Kessel and JVR together to produce. JVR set one up for Kadri last night in the opening minute, and Kadri returned the favour later on in the game.

This team's D sucks the big Carlyle. Bernier stole this game for an undeserving team. I can't wait to see how this group of guys fares under a coach who actually understands defense.
