    Well, game 1's done so let's get onto watching if Komarov is benched.

    Has looked so slow 5v5 making no plays, the 4th line has got hemmed in plenty leading to a BOS 1st line goal, while Komarov on the PK hasn't done anything to stop the couple PP goals they've scored on us so might as well improve ES & PP by bringing in PP threat Johnsson who can also PK. And on the topic of the PP, he's passed off a prime shot opportunity in the slot back to the D because he knows he wouldn't score.

    Time for #FreeJohnsson

    Lol. Leo isn’t to blame for r-tarded penalties and the leafs D-men being atrocious.

    He’s such a plug. Can’t wait till he’s no longer in the blue and white.

    No, really hasn't. Kapanen has created some chances, although he isn't good enough to dominate when saddled with 2 offensive plugs. Komarov was a complete non factor this game.

    Did he even have any big hits?
    Our penalty kill was ****, did we put him in just so Marchant can kiss him?

    The crushing physicality Komarov once had is a thing of the past.

    These types of players have a short shelf life.

    Babcock couldn't figure it out with Dan Cleary and I don't expect him to figure it out with Komarov.

    He had more TOI than Matthews today. What can you even say?

    He can't skate and we can't beat the Bruins if we don't outskate them.

    If this loss was the price to pay to get Johnsson in then I'll take it. But if Komarov is back next game, I'll be irate.

    It's the playoffs. We don't have the time for gud pros who suck at actual hockey.

    4th line as a whole wasn't great...

    But Kappy actually brings it into the Neutral Zone by himself, and looks around for a play. The key word is BY HIMSELF.
    I'll SAY IT AGAIN... BYYY HIMSEELLLFFFFFF
    FFS. We have 2-3 Leafs players every shift having trouble this game taking it past the Neutral Zone.
    Only Matthews, Marner, Dermott, Gards and Kappy can skate it up without losing it. Hes in elite company for a 4th liner.

    Who else can do it like kappy? Thats right... AJ...

    Bruins know not to cover Komorov, the guy couldn't hit the backside of a Barn, or pass it to a quarter panel of the rink.
    Pleks is a fast C so he draws one or two, leaving 3 players on Kappy, and the Guy still dangles his way near RASK...

    SOOO YOU ADD JOHNSSON, there will be an OPEN SLOT, fully earned by speed, with a Bruin behind him.
    THATS A 4th LINE!!!!!!!!

    Next game if Leo isn't sitting, with Johnsson laced up...

    its 2019 Leafs. 2018 is done...

    I'm sure im not alone here

    For the sake of the team Lou or whoever has to let Komarov walk.

    Komarov also needs to start pestering Tuukka Rask a little bit. We all know what kind of psychotic that guy is.

    He's on 1st line. I'm so ****ing pissed.

    Babcock lost this series for us. It isn't even done, but it's already easy to call it with this ****.

    5. Which is probably the same # of years Komarov will get if Babcock gets his way this offseason.

    Komarov actually helps us a lot against Boston. Who does not is Plekanec....He does absolutely nothing for us. Leo basically plays C in the d zone anyways dont see why we cant run: Johnsson-Leo-Kap

    Holy crap its 1 game, can all of you people relax?

    we lose one playoff game on the road and everyone hits the panic button. At least give them the second game before everyone starts to freak out
