    Matthews looks like he is going to take over this league... definitely going to earn every penny of his next contact.

    You know what's fun?

    Does anyone feel like we could play even so much better? Like we are still losing quite a bit of puck battles and the cycle didn't really come until the last period.

    Stars broadcast: "... and, the Stars are still owed a couple of penalties!"
    I hate this line of thinking so much.

    Can the Leafs just shut down the Stars in this period? I'd be very encouraged if they kept them off the board.

    At least keep them off the board for the first 8-10 minutes so they don't get momentum. An early goal against will scare the bejesus outta me

    Didn't have a stacked team in Detroit after Lidstrom retired. They still made the playoffs every year. And then there was Anaheim the time he coached them to the finals.

    After the face-off violation call on Dallas, I told my wife to watch, the Leafs are getting the next one even if they have to make something up. Sure enough, it was weak lol

    Why?

    I think if mlse pulled a random drunk fan out of the subways and made him GM, he very likely would have done a better job than Burke or Jfj. You’ll unfairly accuse me of hyperbole.. but I genuinely believe a random barn yard animal would have done a better job as gm than Burke did.

    Sometimes the ego of these people can blind them to a point where a random fan really does know better.

    We can only hope!

    If we can't shut them down, can we at least keep pace!

    9-7 Leafs final score!

    Exactly!
    All us uninformed fans have been saying play Kappy up the lineup, with Matthews until Nylander comes back.
    We called it.

    Seriously, can we review that Hainsey goal? Pretty sure it was tipped by Lindholm.

    Leafs motto going into the 3rd period: If it bleeds, we can kill it.
