After another win over the Ontario rival, the Leafs get what is supposed to be an easy 2 points @ the ACC for tonight.

Supposed to - because the lowly Panthers have played us tough this season (and in past few seasons) ... in fact, when we played the Panthers in December, they embarrassed us 3-1. We did beat them 6-3 in Florida a couple weeks ago.

The Panthers are a TRULY sad team ... Boyes is their leading scorer and he is on pace to 40 points. That says it all.

Thomas is expected to get the start tonight for the Panthers, and he has a .911SV% this season.

Not sure whether Bernier or Reimer would get this start. I won't be surprised if Carlyle goes with Bernier again, with the team resting at home till next game on Thurs.

JVR has the flu, he's most likely out of tonight's game. Clarkson OTOH can return tonight.


Go Leafs Go!!!

Ugh.... that's a brutal 4th line. Why he even feels the need to dress one goon let alone two is beyond me, Bodie at least can play hockey and has some wheels to him.

I hope we play no more than 2 min of our 4th line tonight.

BUt why Carlyle continues to play goons who really can't handle the NHL on his 4th line is beyond me. Anytime he gets a few W's under his belt he goes back to his old habits.

I just hope Nonis gets him some goons who can actually play hockey in the summer ... no more McLaren and Orr please.

I really think this is a clash of ideolgies between Nonis and Carlyle- Nonis seems to want a fast/aggressive offensive oriented team (similar to Ron Wilson) but Carlyle wants to play a structured 200 foot game that revolves around dump/chase heavy hitting forecheck (Like St Louis). Based on tonight's game lineup it looks like Randy wants to play it his way...

Randy can play robotic positional defense and that's ok with me.

Playing Orr, McLaren, or guys like Fraser, OTOH is NOT playing robotic defense.

It's playing moronic defense.

Bodie-Smithson-D'Amigo

A less than ideal, but playable 4th line.

Not a bad lineup- Bodie is physical and can skate, Smithson's good on the draw (that's his only good quality) and D'mago is a little shit disturber out there who can provide energy.

It's not crying over "Troy Bodie" so much as it's crying over an unplayable 4th line. It would be a pretty mediocre AHL 4th line, nevermind NHL.
...and in general, the crying is over a recurring theme with this team over the years: a refusal to play the best lineup we have at our disposal.

Though at least now, we're complaining about our fourth line not being the best it can be instead of pulling our hair out over Tim Brent anchoring our second line while Kadri sits in the minors, or Jonas Gustavsson steadfastly holding on to the starting job while James Reimer sits in the minors.

Yep. I mean, they're probably going to get 3-4 minutes tonight, but that's still 3-4 too much. They are going to get destroyed and may cost us a goal. We're probably going to see a lot of Kessel or someone double shifting on that line, though.

It's hard to cry about a 4th line, but god damn the obvious line is D'amigo-McClement-Bodie and Ashton over D'amigo when healthy. That's a line that can give you anywhere from 5-10 minutes a night depending on what's needed. Oh well. I'm with zeke.. no need to cry. I'd even argue that Bodie could be moved up to the 3rd line and Clarkson 4th. Make Clarky win his spot back by earning the minutes.

I'm more upset about going back to icing a black hole 3rd line tonight. Apparently Bolland looks pretty good when he's skating by himself but he labors hard in the battle drills. He's going to try for Saturday, but it looks pretty unlikely at this point. #bringbackmckegg

Yeah, I'd much rather see McKegg get another kick at it than Smithson. As for Bolland...no rush, a few more games off and he has until the 25th I think to get himself ready to go. I'd much rather wait for that so we know he's good to go. Guys pushing themselves to get back in the lineup always worry me. Once the adrenaline wears off after the first game or two, they usually suck for 1-2 weeks. Much rather a guy be as sharp as possible before we put him back him.

If Carlyle plays the 4th line for 2-3 mins tonight then I'd rather Smithson, Mckegg would be better off playing in the AHL. Now, if Carlyle would stop trying to insert Mckselke into the 3rd line role then yea I'd love to give Mckegg a shot on the checking line, but if he's going to barely touch the ice its not even worth it.

that little backhander ont eh puuck to kick the start the brekaout was exactly why i have a lot more faith in rielly maximizing his potential than gardiner.

on the flip side, gardiner had the puck afew minutes back on the boards, and while he had a tough play given that florida backed off and covered his outelts, he just threw it away needlessly at the blueline.

Dude i've been complaining about these lines being too weak(in terms of board play) for months now. This isn't a coincidence. What do you think is going on now? Another bad game? Come on...We've been winning games that we never deserved to win all season long. Holland and Ashton are 2 guys who have ability down low so yes they would help keep the puck in the other end hence keep the Panthers from getting all these shots which they mostly got through their cycle game. Sometimes i miss that team that got so many shots and played with much more hunger(even though they could hardly score)..

this team has gone 9-1-1 in 11 because kessel, bozak, jvr and kadri have all been off the dial and the d has played better.

they are flat footed tonight.

the 2 mins carter ashton would have seen by now and 5 minutes holland would have seen wouldn't make a difference.

they're losing this game because the top two lines are totally flat and the d keeps getting caught up/
