    Well that wasn't very good. Refs weren't that good, but that was a pretty sloppy game. Didn't see a whole lot of positive things to talk about for the Leafs tonight, but again, it is preseason...

    Great timing for this game. Slap upside the head for the Leafs, you can't take stupid penalties and you still have to work on the power play. I am actually happy they did this now, Randy can now use it as a coaching tool. It's pre season, the score is still secondary.

    well we can't always blame the refs. there are teams that always get the benefit of the call. (Montreal, Pittsburgh, Detroit). we just flat out did not play good today. 19 shots for us is not good at all.

    what's bothering me are two things
    1: the fact that we're continuously letting in last minute goals in. You'd think they'd hammer that out of their system.

    2: the 2nd period is still bothering them. I really have to wonder if it's the long change, because other than that, I've got NOTHING

    Need to generate more shots, don't think Bernier played that bad (other than fifth goal). Lets see what happens tomorrow night.

    Meh, the entire team played like crap and the defensive zone coverage was horrendous for the most part. Hard to put the blame on Bernier, but I'm sure many will.

    If we keep getting outshot like this, we have to be extremely lucky like last year.

    Few things were obvious about tonight:

    • The team needs Kessel to play very close to 82 games. The team is just not the same wo/ him.
    • The game provided some great footage for some PK training. While the some of the calls and non-calls were interesting, Team Sweden made us pay for most of the calls. Fraser and Orr are completely useless against skill teams like the Wings. Either way, we need to stay out of the box against the Wings during regular season.
    • Good to see Bernier get lit up a bit (even if he had no chance on most of em), I'm anxious to see how he responds. He seems to need a little work on the high shoulder shots. Maybe adopt some of the patented prayer shrug pose.
    • Franson looked in game shape, and played over 20 mins.
    • Clarkson was bad.
    • Fraser looked awful.
     
  16. First period was a positive. Had a higher fenwick/corsi than the Red Wings that period actually.

    19 shots just isn't going to cut it.

    Detroit puts everything net and drives the net. We have to do the same

    Our Centers are not skilled enough to cut through the middle.

    Pretty much

    McClement on 3
    Colborne on 4

    I'd rather have Devane if I had to choose between him and Broll

    Leafs really need to stop getting outshot like this. It's becoming borderline ridiculous now.

    Why didn't a Gardiner play a lot? Why does he not get on the first Powerplay unit? He's been our best player in the pre-season and is probably our leading scorer

    I think this guy missed most of last season where this happened regularly and Reimer still managed to win.

  25. To all those sahying its only pre-season. Did you see Detroit play? They were certainly not playing like its pre-season. Did you not see the structure Detroit was playing with? Leafs play the smurfs Oct. 1st and I don't see any urgency especially from the team that lost the game 7 the way they did.

    Its NOT acceptable.

    Also, enough with...

    -Bozak on 1 PP unit, its bad enough he centers Kessel and JVR
    -Lets just stop giving late period goals
    -Defensive positioning has to be good avg ain't gonna cut it

    Bag skate these ****ers if they don't put it together Oct. 1st
