    Would be great to see the Leafs just steamroll to a cup like the LA Kings in 2011. Pick up that momentum on Canadian soil, let VGK and the Avs kill each other, the East battle it out, whatever the other division is doing and the run them all over when the time comes.

    Surprised Sandin only had 12mins. I thought for a bit he was being double shifted because I kept seeing him on the ice with both Brodie and Dermott.

    We were downright awful in the first period. Sticking with it and coming out with a tie was huge!! Lazy and lots of turnovers to start... got engaged though as the game progressed and eventually took full control by the end of the 2nd and through the 3rd.

    Sandin again looked excellent. Captain Jack was steady as she goes, not that he had a tough game. Matthews is a pure snipe machine... love it!

    Would love to get all 6 points vs les Habitants... to send a message for the first round. Are we actually going to be playing the Jets?

    All but written in stone we face the habs, and finally have a new benchmark to go to in the post season when it comes to our rivalry.

    One we will love quoting in the future.

    Hughson's comment did have a qualifier though. It was something like "There is nothing better in Vancouver hockey than beating the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night."

    All of the allusions to it, including yours, have been absolutes without a qualifier similar to "in Vancouver hockey."

    Give us the Habs damn it. We are due for a playoff series. Jets need to pick up their damn game.

    Wonder if they just gave him lighter minutes after the big hit.

    Keefe really rolled 4 lines.
    Thornton -Brooks-Spezza lowest with 12-13 minutes
    Marner the most with 17 with Matthews close to 16 mins and Tavares 16.5 mins. The others were in between.
    Marner-Matthews average 21-22 mins/game

    And they still dominated ...

    He was gone for a good chunk of the first to get repairs so it’s likely that has something to do with it. He also played closer to 14 minutes.

    It's entirely stupid of them to feel confident that they can beat us when we literally bullied them. We will likely be resting players when we play them because they simply are not a threat anymore.

    Outside of Helle. Nobody on that team scares me.

    PoMo has lost the room the way he lost Byuff.

    Everyone in the world knows schiefele is lazy.

    We have a team of proven two way forwards and back checkers on each line. This team is something to be excited about. Theirs is not.

    Really hope it’s the Habs , although Winnipeg doesn’t scare me either . Only kicker is Helle can just be too good at times

    You're saying that he didn't say "in Vancouver hockey?" Because the very night it happened, it was being discussed in the PGT and people were claiming that Hughson said "There was nothing better than beating the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night" and I was unsure so, since it was less than 1 hour after he said it, I was able to rewind my DVR and listen to what he actually said which is what I quoted. But if you don't want to believe me, that's fine.

    Guess we’ll never know if it was facetious

    Regardless, we know how he really feels. Fans have latched, I think they’re within their right to be bothered by the comment

    I think it is 6. 5 pts gives the Leafs 76 points. If Edmonton wins all 8 of their games, they would also have 76 points. And there is a chance that the Oilers would have the tiebreaker so the Leafs would need 6 pts to guarantee it.

    In any event, I find it ridiculous how much some people care about what media people or other fans say about the Leafs.

    I honestly don't care what Hughson said but I do care about people quoting things accurately.

    Is Toronto this good or is Canada this bad? It's hard to say. I know they're the best team up here but hopefully it's not going to hurt them if and when they get out of the division.

    Do you know why. Because Keefer and Dubas, provide a common front imo.

    The players of today make more than the gods of bay street and Wall Street.

    Best tandem since..... whenever.

    Top, players, want the same or more from the people, above them.

    Toronto, has to be at the top of that one.

    Jumbo, is kinda on fire right now. He and Rielly looked perma stoned to me. But seriously I have no clue, no idea.

    But if he is a bud man, Jumbo has switched to a much more violent brand.

    Probably a bit of both. We probably have the easiest division, even just for the fact there are only 7 teams.

    Anderson's 5M is going to be used on Hyman and a second goalie to partner Campbell. No need to trade Kerfoot when we already have cap room unless Dubas is looking at a different player profile.
