Big game tonight for the boys; Reimer looks to be the starter and hoping for the return of Dave Bolland. Also hoping that we get Bob Cole tonight!

Big game for both teams. Habs win helps distance us from the wild card pretenders. Leafs win helps keep you ahead of the couple teams chasing the playoffs.

First game back against Tampa was a shit sandwich after a long road trip. Hopefully three days helped them figure their shit out. Home game vs Habs....2 points coming up.

Carlyle says Bolland's return would allow Leafs to play more of a four-line games

Bolland in tonight, need Reimer to come up big as well. Guessing we will see MacIntyre tomorrow

I wouldn't mind seeing MacIntyre just to see if he could potentially be a backup in the NHL. He's been really good for a while in the AHL.

The games are so important now though. Its tough to not go with Reimer back to back.

The most important game of the season tonight IMO, if we win tonight and if Detroit/Washington lose we go up 5 points on them, but if we lose and they win were within 1 point of being out of a wildcard spot.

Gonna be an entertaining game tonight for sure.

Is this the first time all year we've had the full healthy lineup?

Bolland coming back is huge. He's exactly what they have been missing the last few months. That sparkplug grinder that sets the tone.

Any uptick in quality (or downtick) can effect the outcome.

Holland is a solid hockey player, Orr a complete, unplayable liability. He has more minor penalties against this season than he he shots on net. Think about that for a second.

Volcanologist
03-22-2014, 02:35 PM
Holland doesn't appear to be one of Randy's faves, for whatever reason.

zeke
03-22-2014, 02:41 PM
the good news is that they kinda need the capspace so you'd think they would have sent Holland down already if they weren't going to play him.

then again, he might still be up just as Bolland insurance.

David Alter @DavidAlter590
CONFIRMED: Dave Bolland activated off LTIR. Will play tonight. Peter Holland taken off roster to keep under salary cap.


So Holland can't play - and the leafs can't even keep more than 12 forwards on the roster - due to cap considerations.

well, maybe they can once MacIntyre is sent back down I guess.

holland isn't looking like much of an nhl'er right now. but orr is totally useless.

Most 4th liners don't look like much of a NHL'er right now. But when you look at some of the underlying numbers, he's useful enough. Point production is solid considering his role (~20 point pace in 11 minutes of ice with shit linemates for the majority) solid possession numbers, decent (though not great) faceoff numbers

I agree that I'd rather seem him in the AHL right now, on the Marlies 1st line and dominating than getting 6-7 minutes a night on our 4th. But he's actually managing to do some positives in his minutes played. Orr is beyond useless, a complete liability.

Team "got up" fine. Been physical, solid defensive shape when defending the cycle, fantastic transition other than Kessel's turnover on the 1st goal, created a half dozen rush chances now. Montreal has had 2 chances and both went in.

This is a case of Reimer failing his team, not the team failing Reimer

I don't "fault" him. I've been pretty consistent with my opinion of him the whole time. He's a fantastic offensive talent, likely to finish top 5 in defensive scoring perennially.

Ever had someone hit you in the back when you're not expecting it? Not a ****ing chance Dion leaves himself exposed like that on purpose. I've literally never seen him try to milk a penalty like that (especially one that if it doesn't get called probably leads to a chance going the other way).

Running into a defender, whether you knock him over or not, and obstructing him when he doesn't have the puck is a penalty 100 times out of 100.
