    I don't want a heavy schedule but I'd like them to stay sharp and games are the best way to stay sharp. Either way this isn't a bad schedule it's just terrible for spacing out games.

    Yeah I think Komarov's role fits better next to Plekanec than with Kadri at least this year.

    Also



    Please come back soon Matthews

    Yeah the spacing out of games sucks, mostly from a fan perspective IMO, but one reason why I've liked this Leafs' schedule is that they got a lot of their hard road trips out of the way early on.

    I realize you weren't responding to me, but I have a couple of questions on the stats you cite.

    1. Is it possible / probable the line was used differently when Komaraov or Marner were on the line?

    2. Why did you switch from Leivo vs Komo to Marner vs. Komo ? Was it because Leivo never gets to match up against the very best lines in the NHL because the coach doesn't like him therefore there are no stats?

    lmao oh nice one, im not arguing with you im just telling you your wrong. So komarov doesnt help kadri and marleau offensively... therefore he sucks defensively?

    I was gonna say the same thing..

    Here is something X66 should find numbers for: Kadri-Marleau-Marner arent used as a shutdown line as much hence dont have heavier minutes against competition compared to Kadri-Marleau-Komarov. The line komarov is on is usually the line that gets the tougher minutes.

    So the Leafs are better with a superstar center in the lineup, who knew?

    I’m saying he’s a god awful possession player with them and brings down their possession stats a ton.

    He’s even worse possession wise without them, which just puts greater emphasis on how much the had to carry him 5 on 5.

    Komarovs defensive play has been very overrated this year. He’s been a shell of his former self.

    Was listening to a podcast and one of the media guys was like "sometimes I think we underestimate how much losing a star player hurts a team"

    Lol, you dont say?

    Good post.
    Leivo can't replace Komarov on the Kadri line, it's an absurd notion.

    His offense has been the problem, he's fine defensively. He's been a target all year if his defense was that terrible those people waiting for him to screw up would be jumping on his mistakes. He's a key part of our very effective PK, I doubt he's here next year but he's easily one of our best defensive wingers.

    Hey guys, just out of curiosity have any of you made the trek to buffalo to watch the leafs play? just wondering if it is worth the trip.

    Thanks!

    The guy can barely play on the 4th line and you think he'd excel at tough defensive match ups?

    I always enjoy it. I guess it depends on what would make the trip worth it for you.

    Looking forward to seeing the boys play again - these breaks have been too long.

    I just like watching the leafs so im pretty easy to please. The tickets i am looking at are about $300 for the pair, at the end where the leafs shoot twice so i feel like that would be a pretty cool experience.

    Obviously, we can't know something that hasn't happened, but we can speculate.

    I would like if they had a shutdown line with shutdown players, but Babcock makes due with the assets he has.

    One should not forget how Babcock frequently puts Komarov on the Kadri line when protecting a late lead.

    Keep looking around, that sounds like a lot of money for Buffalo. We paid that for 4 last week, 10 rows up.
