    quoted for truth. I like going to read post game threads to see tears of bitter opposing fans. seeing Leafs fans in there groveling for approval kills my buzz

    Nylander was fantastic. Not his fault we have a spineless coach scared to play for a dominating win.

    Babcocks system needs elite d we have elite forwards and average d. Does he adjust? Nope not one bit he just benches the best skater In the game to ensure he gets his one point. I’m sorry but you can’t be the best coach in the game with tactics he employs

    Blind squirrel etc. There is no way babcock thought “hyman is going offensively tonight I’ll put him out in ot” if a player fails 9 out of 10 time with offensive play he shouldn’t be out in ot one play does not change that.

    yeah when the team was bad Babcock's coaching wasn't really focused on other than to be praised for getting a lot out of scrubs. Now that we have elite talent and should be dominating average teams like Calgary, his coaching flaws are becoming really apparent

    No it happened, but Matthews didn’t miss an open net the goalie knocked it out of his path. Kadri nylander also had a great chance in ot.

    You are delusional man. Your nylander bias is showing. Tonight didn’t go well for him what a ridiculous take

    Lol besides Andersen, Nylander was our best player, my jaw actually dropped when him Kadri and Marleau were out and Marleau hit the post from a Nylander pass, then there was a face off but for some reason Komarov was out there instead of Nylander

    I've always been under the impression that Babcocks plan is different than what he actually says "I'm playing to win the game tonight" The way he deploys players makes me think he is playing to eventually win... Hyman /Brown / Etc should trickle down our lineup with 1st line confidence and really give 3rd and 4th lines fits. He does it in reverse with the skilled guys learning to be a mucker before they are put in offensive roles.

    I'll hold my comments to that, but I really want to see us unleash the hounds in soon time

    The D-core miss a lot of assignments constantly...this pair are more likely tho...and yes "Soft" is a major problem. Problem is it will continue! Babcock hockey only line matches, it does not correct problems...frankly , there really isn't even line matching..theres only ..tap Hyman and Brown.

    Small coaching world for the Babcock.

    8 games without a goal for Brown. Only 1 goal in 8 games for Matthews that was on the PP (assisted by Nylander). But lets keep Brown and Matthews together, its clearly working well.

    Its like beating a dead horse with Babcock sometimes...

    Next time Andersen lets in a softie, or looks off, or goes through a rough patch, remember this moment...you'll look less foolish in the long run, trust me.

    From where I sit, it's nowhere near that bad. We played very well against Vancouver, and Calgary last week, and the WSH game was pretty good too. This game wasn't pretty but it's just one game and it wasn't even as bad as some people are making it out to be.

    Where do these numbers come from? I don't think we played as bad as most people seem to think but I also don't think we played nearly as well as these numbers would suggest.

    You need to calm down. We are not getting "vastly outplayed" every night, if we were I'd be the first one to say so.

    Generally speaking, I would agree. That said, maybe it was a way of sending a message, who knows? As Daisy said, Babcock is trying to do more than win games, he's also trying to develop players so yeah, sending a message to them every now and then might be a good idea. You want to be on the ice in 3 on 3 OT - show me how bad you want it!

    I was thinking the same thing watching last night. We didn't look good, but Calgary looked very good and sometimes, you have to give the other team some credit. There are two teams out there and the result doesn't just depend on the performance of one of them. Not a great game for us by any stretch of the imagination but yeah, it wasn't that bad either.

    Brown was getting praised for his scoring and should take Willy’s spot on Matthews line. Nylander has 7 more points than brown. Brown has 13 points so nylander is scoring over 50% more points than brown

    Andersen is 7th in the league amongst starters, .922 save percentage. He also has faced the most shots, played the most minutes and 2nd in wins: 2017‑2018 NHL Goalie Stats

    Andersen always had this in him, he can be amazing. I don't care about the Octobers if he keeps up some level of play close to this for the majority of the year.

    You’re yelling at the clouds man. The massive Andersen haters are here still they just choose different scapegoats, cyborg was a huge Ander5en/andersieve promoter now he is on marner or Babcock or nylander. And when Andersen lets in a bad goal he will be back to Andersen many posters like him of course

    For example there were about 5 posters saying “October Freddy is back” because of a perceived soft goal in Vancouver. Replay showed it was deflected and some doubled down with well good goalies stop deflections too
