    where we left off:
    Bergeron is injured for 4 weeks.
    Tampa's goalie has a fractured foot.
    NSH is the best team in the league (by 1 point)
    PIT is in a tailspin
    and..

    all these coaches are being fired!
    (Yeo and McLellan the latest causalities)

    and...go!!

    These coach firings could signal that there is a GM ready for pickings. Find one and convince him that Nylander is the answer to their problems/prayers.

    There are going to be lots of teams trying to play catch up now. If we decide to trade Nylander, the season so far helps our cause.

    why was Stevens fired because Quick got injured and the team is slow and can't score?
    is the way of things.

    Chiarelli has done an insanely bad job in Edmonton. No way he ever ends up as a GM in the NHL again. Will probably have to get a friend to hire him to some random position in a front office to keep working.

    With Vasi out and Boston being depleted, would be a good time to start racking up enough points to give the Leafs enough cushion to secure the top spot in the East heading into the post season

    Leafs fan: makes an on topic but negative point
    Oilers fans: **** you Leafs suck
    Leafs fan: no they don't
    everyone: wow Leafs fans turn everything into a Leafs thread

    you really have to laugh at this point. Oilers fans are the most insecure people on the planet, although I get where they're coming from

    Bergeron and 6 defensemen out for the Bruins right now. We better beat them next week with an AHL defense + Krug.

    I'm not just talking about the upcoming game vs Boston

    With Matthews back shortly and with the whole Nylander saga concluding with either a singing, trade or sitting, we will finally see a "complete" Leafs lineup while the other 2 powerhouses of the Atlantic are still hurting. Mind you TBL have still been playing well with their backup since they have a great D to help him out.

    What about Chara being out indefinitely and only being re-evaluated in 4 weeks? :D

    Wonder how long until the Leafs are to blame for Hitchcock's hiring
     
  18. Both embody the definition of dirtbag, so why not?

    Wish someone could post Bruins stats with Chara in and out of their lineup.

    Unlike the Leafs missing Matthews/Nylander, I bet the Bruins missing Chara correlates to majority of their success, Krug & tough guys co. continue to be Polak's punching bags :D

    Hitch is a great coach, but this is just going to keep Chia in his job longer. A pity, I think hockey fans in general deserve to see McDavid more in the playoffs

    I thought Hitchcock had retired. Things are going to be interesting in Edmonton with Hitchcock. He's super into mind games. As a Scotty Bowman type of hockey mind, I think he's the style of old school with a higher IQ and openness to new things that might easily adapt to/appreciate the changing face of hockey.

    wait what? 6 of their D are injured?

    EDIT: after looking it up, they are indeed without Chara, Mcavoy, Vaakanainen, Moore, Millar, and Carlo. Wow.
