They need to stop letting Mitch talk to the media


They need to put him on his own line tonight, away from JT and Matthews. At least for a bit, let him get confident and out of his head. Then he'll get rolling. He's done this so many times, he desperately wants to be the hero but when it's not working he second guesses himself and does the opposite of what he normally does. Hopefully he just really stops caring and goes out and has fun, if he does that, he'll get back to himself.

I think that's very unfair. They have similarities to TO as well. They had Pittsburgh who was just better to go through. I don't think they could have won more. This year should be ours, Boston, Tampa, Colorado are all out. Carolina is super hurt. But our coach sucks and never changes anything beyond throwing guys on different lines.


I think it's fair but might have been taken out of context. I'm not disrespecting Wash just saying they should have accomplished more with their core players. Every team has similarities, the difference is it didn't take the caps 6 years to make it out of the first round. Also, if Pitt was better as you claim wouldn't that be reason to adjust when they couldn't win at that point? This year and the all Canadian division are 2 blown opportunities by this core. I would also say Boston's core has failed with only winning 1 cup with them.

Agree about the coach but the blame needs to go around and nobody should get a free pass. Nick Nurse was such an effective coach he would tell the media his gameplan before the game because he knew he could adjust throughout the game, Sheldon Keefe does not and has not to this point in his coaching career been able to do that.

He hasn't changed anything they do at all in this series. Keefe just hasn't adjusted to what Florida does. Florida really only has quick strike offence, nullify that and they are done. Keefe has done nothing to address that.


Keefe hasn't done or been able to alter his gameplan throughout a game to this point in his NHL coaching career not just this sieries

That's par for the course for this site. Guy goes out of this way to chirp leaf fans, leaf fans calls him out and somehow I am the troll. Troll logic for sure.


Lol, okay dude, you are one of the biggest trolls on this entire site. All you had to do was admit Murray is cooked.

Ohh look, Justin Holl is back. This ought to be good.

Well I must say, how they are playing tonight is how I wanted them to approach this series from the get go. Give them nothing, make it easy for Woll. Beat em in low scoring games.

Cool story, not accepting the negative bull**** trolls spew on this site makes me the biggest troll. Checks out.

Marner isn't a cap dump.

If Woll doesn't let in any bad goals, then I would want him over Samsonov. Yes Samsonov had his moments in round 1 but he was also terrible in game 1 and let in a terrible goal in game 5 vs Tampa and again in game 2 vs Florida. If he wants 5 million on his next deal, maybe sign him and trade him. Woll and Murray are fine for a tandem next year depending on what Samsonov wants.


I've talked about this in forums past, but I would honest sell high on Samsonov's RFA rights and recoup some draft capital. Woll is ready. It will come down to Murray or Samsonov, and Samsonov will likely cost more

If you can't take, don't dish. Murray is a negative asset in this league, and that's a fact.

Or not, this is exactly how I have wanted them to play all series. Give them nothing, this is how you beat Florida. They are going to give you chances, be patient for them and capitalize on them and the rest of the time just give them nothing easy. Try to win 1-0 every game and you'll win against florida. Try to beat them 5-1 and you lose 4-3
