    This wild game should give the Leafs hope. Wild looked down and out and now they look like the better team

    Winnipeg has been getting all the calls/non calls in their favour tonight too.

    Ovie has a pair. It’s never a bad thing watching Torts lose a game.

    The wild arent a good playoff team on talent right now with so manyinjuries but they are battling tonight. I'm ok with the jets winning their series I just hope their fans/lain fans dont crap on leafs/Matthews if we get swept/lose out series. Hopefully the wild give a good fight but I dont mind jets winning.

    I just thought it was funny as I was looking at SJ's playoff lineup and boom Eric Fehr was on the fourth line.

    I bet you could have played any Moore, Fehr, Aaltonen or Plek and they'd all give you around the same level of performance. If Plekanec is the best out of that group I'd say its by a pretty slim margin and thats depressing when we gave up a second round pick for the guy.

    CBJ tried to giftwrap that game to them in the 3rd with all of the stupid penalties. Well, everyone but BOBROVSKY!

    I'm pretty sure that Doughty will bolt the Kings and test the market next summer.

    I can't believe Engelland is averaging 26 minutes per game and they're 3-0 against LA. I always thought he was just a meat head on defense.

    Even Trotz couldn't fix the problem.
    Ovie and Backstrom could be gone next season.

    Re: Jets - Just looked at their roster. 15 players are 25 years of age or less. We are certainly not the only team with good young roster despite what we espouse at times. There's quite a few of them actually.

    That's a good question. Another good question (possibly an even better one) is why don't we have a center within our system that could jump into the 4C position? Seems odd for a team that supposedly (league leading according to some) has a deep pool of prospects.

    If fans crap out on Matthews right now, it will be justified. Laine has out played him. Laine has been engaging himself in battles, now mind you he hasn't face Chara. But Laine doesn't come off as a kid who will back down either

    Jets have been the better team. We been painting a picture of how Matthews is so superior to Laine. As it stands today, 11:58 AM on Monday, Laine has out played and out competed Matthews.

    I watched the goal he scored then that sad violin celebration. To me that's gold. I mean that's swagger. Love that from him

    There are. But the jets best players are 31 and 25. There top d is 33 and they sucked last year. There is a world of difference between 25 and 20. And they have had years of failure before. People have short memories

    Laine - 19
    Trouba - 24
    Ehlers - 22
    Hellebuyck - 24
    Scheifele - 25
    Connor - 21

    That's a really good young core. I think I'll stick with the original point I made because its valid. The biggest difference between the Jets this year and last is goaltending.

    It is. We aren’t the only team with good young players. There is a dramatic difference between a team being led by 20 year olds and a team with talented 20 year olds supporting them. Winnipeg is the best counterpart to Toronto but still not close in terms of young core leading the charge
