    I think that both Moore and Martin will be in next game. I was glad when I felt that Plek meant the end of Moore this season, but Plek has been much worse and seems to want to be back home as soon as possible. I feel that at least Martin and Moore will bring some desire to actually play the game.

    I would like to see Leivo but I don't see that happening.

    The D is a mess, and I don't feel that there is an easy solution. I would call up Borgman - the Marlies don't start the playoffs for 6 days. Sit either Hainsey or Zaitsev.

    Game 6 will also be at home. Boston doesn't get games 5 and 6.

    Not yet, but there will be. 6 games is the minimum amount of games that we can take the series.

    What ever happened to just being a fan of the team and hoping for the best? Seems nobody wants to risk looking foolish now cheering on a loser.

    Sure, the first 2 games were terrible, but it's not over yet. Let's stay behind these guys and go down with them if need be.

    It will. But that's cool. Fans should get fired up if we win.

    But we should also keep our composure, as fans, when things look bleak. Not just whine endlessly.

    People already took a risk and ended up looking foolish. Do you think no one was cheering going into Game 1? They were cheering on this loser.

    What happened to hope for the best and prepare for the worst? People aren't turning in their Leaf cards to officially become Jets fans. Just accepting the reality that we are currently residing in. We're going down with this ship regardless.

    You may have to grin and bear it.Boston deserves to be ahead, but I still think we will pull out the series.

    I'd do this

    Johnsson-Matthews-Nylander
    Kapanen-Marleau-Marner
    JVR-Bozak-Brown
    Leivo-Hyman-Martin

    PP I would do

    JVR-Matthews-Nylander
    Rielly-Dermott/Kap

    JVR-Marleau-Marner
    Gardiner-Johnsson/Leivo/Dermott

    I'd give Grundstrom a shot if we can just for his fiestiness.

    Except, you didnt agree.

    You kept coming up with reasons why people favoring the Bruins should be realizing Leafs are better than last year, like that somehow dimishes how good a team Boston is

    Nope, sorry but you're consistently wrong on this. I always said Boston was favoured.

    And you consistently jabbed at me when I pointed out that they were favorites. In one thread you responded to me 6 times.

    If this semantic U-turn makes you sleep better, go for it. But we both know you were bigging up the Leafs chances against anyone who was suggesting Boston were favorites.

    Funny but Marincin-Zaitsev looked great in limited minutes. If we could they did well, would be an awesome bottom pair to Rielly-Dermott / Gardiner-Hainsey

    :laugh::laugh:

    This is perhaps the dumbest sequence of posts I've ever seen here. You're wrong, that's all there is to it. Go ahead, show me one post where I suggested the Leafs were favoured. Show me one post where I argued with someone who said Boston was favoured. Should be easy, you said I did it 6 times in just one thread. Where are all these mysterious non-existent posts you claim to have read?

    You can't do it because it didn't happen. Stop making yourself look foolish.

    My worst fear is that when I step off the plane in TO on the 19th the game will be over and we're out. I don't think this will happen, we're a darned good team, better than we've shown, but it would be such a drag not to watch at least one game with the buds in a bar, having a few beers and cheering the team on. Come on boys, get 'er done for me :D
