I'm on a bit of a roll so might as well get the GDT started...

Last time the wings caught us on the back end of a back to back, it's time we return the favour and out shoot them tonight.

The wings suffered an OTL last night but did pickup a point, as they did in the loss to reimer so they're still on a pretty good streak.

OTOH despite the last win, Dubas has mentioned the annoying trend of being badly outshot has 'raised a flag within management' and they care about the process than the W's and L's. It's interesting to see if Randy makes any adjustment tonight.

No lineup changes is expected. Reimer is expected to go right back in net. We'll most likely need his magic again tonight.

Go Leafs Go!

Is Reimer expected back in?

TSN mentioned Bernier expected to start.

I'll be surprised... Bernier should get the King's tomorrow

Reimer left practice early yesterday after "tweaking" his groin. Supposedly, it wasn't serious, but maybe that's the reason behind Bernier getting the start tonight.

If so, the poor guy really can't catch a break.

This time the Leafs are well rested and the Wings are on a back to back on the road. We'll see how that affects the game.

Hopefully we have a better effort than the last game. I'll take a win even if they play like shit, but hopefully they play well.

Bernier starting?

Any injury is frustrating, but one that happens during practice is so annoying.

i'm waiting for somebody in the media to suggest that if Reimer hadn't sat so long it might not have happened.
It'll be the same guys saying we needed to decide on a number one.

awww man, the poor guy can't catch a break. Let's hope it's GTD and he gets to play at game time tonight.

Just gotta feel for the guy.

They show a clip of Bob Cole calling a classic game and then we have to listen to Paul Ram for this one. #majordowngrade

I ****ing love this winnik-naz-santo line. We needed that type of line for years.

It just bothers me how often the Leafs get out-worked by their opponent. Really no excuse for that.

Bleedsblue&white

Leafs are implementing the rope-a-dope gambit, I see.

I hope we lose tonight if this kind of play continues. You just don't learn from your mistakes by getting by without any consequences. Just an utter shitshow once again tonight.

Good quick response.
I think I see some Tony Amonte when watch Santerelli skate with the puck.

The Kadri line has been so dangerous tonight. Seem to spend their whole shift in the Wings zone.

Hopefully the Wings are getting gassed, but it looks like it's their back-up's turn tonight.
So far.

Especially painful seeing what Santo and Winnik are doing with their salaries.

Get Clarkson off the PP, for f*ck sakes.

No need to Panik. Richard got this.

12-13-2014, 08:37 PM
Time to move up Panik, and drop Clarkson (to waivers or pressbox) to the 4th line.

Bleedsblue&white
12-13-2014, 08:38 PM
Hes no Yanic, this Panik, but that's okay. :drink

Skated today, so the best guess is about another week or two

There's no way to say how the ACC is miked over the TV, but. There is no excuse for our building to be so quiet to start the third.
Sure, now they cheer.

Its funny hearing them talk about the 4th line, seeing as this board has been calling for Orr and McLaren to be demoted for a couple years now.

We're typically 18-24 months ahead of those guys in subject matter. Not really surprising.

5.5 years.

There is no way we can keep him for that long. I'm sure someone would take him at near half salary. Or not.

He's a local boy with a NTC and the Leafs are looking like they're going to be at least pretty good for the next few years. 0% chance he waives his NTC. This is a guy who will have to be starved out of the lineup and embarrassed.

Though it is a modified NTC (not sure what the modifications are) so maybe we'll be able to eat a chunk of it, or take another shitty contract back, etc.

The added depth is really helping.

We would have looked way, way different last year if we had this group of depth forwards. Biggest difference between this year and last is that our depth forwards aren't AHL level scrubs.

Well, they didn't really "learn". They finally have professionals making the decisions who don't believe in it.

My thoughts on the game-

- Leafs did an impressive job at limiting turnovers against a team that is one of the best at forcing them. To keep to just 8 turnovers all game is a huge step forward, not to mention we had something like 15 takeaways

- Kessel was too quiet last night, yea he had an assist but he wasn't up to snuff last night

- That Rielly goal was a beaut! Who knew the kid could snipe like that? More of that please

- Franson I thought had one of his best games as a Leaf, and that wipeout hit on Datsyuk was epic

- Paniks' a beast when he's PO'd! I thought the hit was a headshot though and I think the league takes a look at it but I get why he did it because Smith laid quite the 2 hander on him, he definetly is a better fighter then I figured he woud be.

My favourite moment in this game was hearing Healy (I think it was) bragging that the Wings only took 41secs of their power play to score... and just as he got those words out, JVR scores on the PP... only 21secs in...
