Toronto vs. FLA ROUND 2

BOS blew a 3-1 series lead

I am now more confident in this not just being a 1 round thing


Bring'em on!!!
No fear here.

Knies and Gio also skated. Have a feeling those two might be dealing with an injury after last game, possibly game time decisions or something. I would suspect they'd play though.


You were right about Knies and I was wrong... I will eat my large plate of crow now.

I pretty much universally disagree with all of Kipper’s take but this one actually makes some sense.




No team is out bidding TOR, it’s how much are they willing to spend. Kyle has bet on himself and could make out like a bandit if TOR goes on a long run. Another deciding factor could be does he want a larger role, President?

I don’t really see Shany going anywhere but a President-Dubas GM-Spezza relationship at some point could be cool.

Last night was unbelievable!!

I was really worried about Samsonov heading into the game but man!! He was solid, actually more than solid, I have to admit, he has to be series MVP. Without him the Leafs don't win.

So happy for alot of people right now. Matthew Knies, man this kid!! He did alot of little things that were big time all game long but especially on that game winner.

A special shoutout to Liliejgren, Gustafsson and Bunting just because it's not easy at all to be sitting healthy and not playing (especially 2 weeks!!) but then having asked to come in and play mistake free and be difference makers in different ways.

Morgan Rielly was incredible in this series and please, give me MORE OF THAT going forward.

I'm happy for guys here as well, it's tough being a Leafs fan but not right ****ing now!! 😎


Rielly was the sieries MVP IMO... guy's been in absolute beast mode last year's playoffs (remember when he fought 2 guys last year, 1 right after the other) and again this year. I agree sammy was spectacular when we needed him and he certainly was the better goalie in the sieries which isn't easy to do when going up against Vas.

I agree with you and have long been a fan of Rielly's effort level come playoffs. Even in years previous years where we've lost, Rielly has been the most consistent in terms of effort. Also it's nice to see all the big boys putting up points. That used to be a huge criticism of the Leafs in the playoffs as well. Can't wait to watch them in round 2!

Depending on the dates I might have to grab tickets in Florida. I've never even been on a plane though lmao






I was going to make a joke that went something along the lines of "no you aren't", but seeing as though this only applies to the first 24 hours of sales and your competition is the people of Florida, you should be fine

Rielly should have been the captain IMO although, all great options. IMO the big boys have been able to put up points because we finally have a solid 3rd line making it tougher forthe opposition to shutdown our top 2 lines. Same here GLG!!!

Rielly doesnt like media spotlight apparently when they were deciding he said he didnt want it. He prefers the assistant status but we all know hes the honorary Captain. As his nickname Captain MO is a thing

JT I believe is the perfect captain rn. Then when hes done give it to Matthews who hopefully would have signed his 8 year deal

As Matthews still has some growing to do but has shown he is moving in the right direction

Not for a while yet, I think Dubas wants to build a dynasty. And when Shanahan retires, he'll move to president. But it's years away yet.

When they only have 8 thousand tickets sold after 24 hours they'll be surprised to see the rest of the seats go in 20 minutes after.

I think our big boys just want it more. They are not going to be denied and that's what needs to happen if you are going to win.

They just took out BOS and are playing with house money. Let’s call a spade a spade here, TOR could barely handle a Dcore of Bogosian, Raddysh, Perbix, and Cole.

Agree to disagree all good. But I’m not taking FLA lightly


agreed. The Leafs lit up that d-core actually. And the Leafs D wasn't even bad at all side from that god awful Gio-Holl pair. If Keefe goes back to that we riot

I honestly don’t know how TOR won this series:

TBL

Raddysh
CF 51%
GF 5 GA 7
SCF 57%
HDCF 46%?

Sergachev
CF 55%
GF 4 GA 7
SCF 56%
HDCF 42%

Hedman
CF 56%
GF 7 GA 3
SCF 61%
HDCF 53%

Cole
CF 55%
GF 4 GA 4
SCF 61%
HDCF 61%

Bogosian
CF 67%
GF 3 GA 1
SCF 66%
HDCF 66%

Perbix
CF 55%
GF 7 GA 6
SCF 59%
HDCF 53%

TOR

Rielly
CF 49%
GF 9 GA 3
SCF 44%
HDCF 62%

Brodie
CF 42%
GF 4 GA 3
SCF 42%
HDCF 48%

Schenn
CF 48%
GF 7 GA 1
SCF 47%
HDCF 64%

McCabe
CF 38%
GF 3 GA 4
SCF 33%
HDCF 37%

Giordano
CF 45%
GF 3 GA 9
SCF 37%
HDCF 39%

Holl
CF 47%
GF 2 GA 9
SCF 38%
HDCF 40%

All I can say is thank fukc for the Rielly Schenn pairing, the unfortunate/fortunate Černák injury, and Samsonov.


It’s encouraging that TOR won playing like this, they will need to be much much better going forward.

The McCabe-Brodie pairing was hardmatched as a shutdown line against the point-Kucherov line.
They (+Sammy) totally shut them down. The sub par #s are to be expected from a workload like that.

They were extremely effective in their role
