Hope Toffoli can get back this series.  More cup experience won't hurt vs the defending champs. 

 

I don't like the back to back games 3 and 4.  Fine if nux win game 3.  What if it goes 4OT?

Cup is a Cup isn’t it? 

Yeah but I can still mock a team that has only made it past the first round two times  in 30 years.  Kinda like how you like to give the leafs the gears... they got cups don’t they?

I get the “play-in” concept but not sure I really agree with the “seeding” process for the top ranked teams

 

everything those teams played for in terms of conference standings during the regular season was undone in a mini tourney, makes no sense to me. 

Who's to say the standings wouldn't change in the last month?

 

The season was halted in March not April 

 

I think the NHL made the absolute best of a bad situation.

I like the play in play in format.  Could be something they do in the future for wildcards. increase revenue for teams.

My biggest “beef” with the Leafs is the fact the “media” rams them down our throats 24/7 365 days a year

Then the old geezers on the Blues team will be dead tired

I agree with that.   I’m glad they are out!  Not only that... Harry Potter was hailed as the next genius GM by some...

Jake is going to his worth.  This is the type of game he is built for and why was a higher pick then Nylander and Ehlers.  He's really going to lay the body on their dmans.  I know it. He's born for that.

One line making more than the entire Columbus roster 

 

more to hockey than writing a big cheque 

 

Dumbas& can’t figure that out

The back to back thing isn't super relevant considering it's both teams. Zero travel, staying in the same city. Both teams are in the same boat.

How's Toffoli injury?  Will he get into some games against the Blues?

If we can tie up and shut down O’Reilly we have a sold chance. hit him every chance we get 


Perron had a solid season but he is getting up there in years and we need to make life tough for him as well 

 

in my mind, Tarasenko will be a wildcard. If he is healthy we will have our hands full 

 

the then there is schenn, tough player that can score 

 

Binnington played over his head last year, we can get to him

 But the Nux walk from hotel to rink is longer than the Blues   .........
