    Definitely thought he would be a better finisher. He has such a great release too. :(

    You would think all those years being bottom feeders would have humbled them but it made it worse somehow

    It's soccer strategy. Or the old Soviet way of playing hockey.

    Didn't I read that it was Churla's pick?

    If it were their team doing it there'd be a thread on the main board about how revolutionary they are

    I can't take credit for that one lol. I think it was @Runner77 who came up with it. What a brilliant nickname!

    That's the part I don't get. I used to visit the Boston board pre-covid, fun rivalry, but I stay away from Toronto's. They make everything about the Leafs. It's like the Kardashians... everything I know about them I learned against my will.

    The collapse has been around for a long time. I think Martin used it. Julien's teams didn't seem to pressure the points too much either.

    Except the line is arguably our most effective right now, Tatar- Danault - Gallagher we know is effective and Anderson and KK seem like a good fit with Caufield to me cause the size factor. Also Armia looked good with Suzuki in the bubble.

    I went to bed at the end of the second period, early rise for me. I smiled when I saw the highlights of Caufield, his shot is elite, good to see him doing well. This team seems to be doing better without many of the vets in the lineup, they are making mistakes here and there but there seems to be more desire to win. Is this a fluke or are some of our vets just not that good anymore?

    So, I have no really paid any attention to Leafs fans because I think they are mostly in their early 20s, so I really don't care what they have to say.

    I went to check their PGT after all the talk in here. I haven't been to their board at all this entire season. All I can say is, what the holy f***? These guys are setting themselves up for so much disappointment this year that I am actually a little concerned as to what will happen if they don't at least make the finals. These fans legitimately think their team is unbeatable and that any losses are because of bad luck or cheating. It's f***ing wild.

    Seriously, what happens if they don't make an actual, deep run? At this point anything less than a finals appearance has to be considered a massive failure by that fanbase. I know COVID has made us all crazy but they have lost their damn minds. The Leafs are extremely beatable and there are plenty of other teams in other divisions that will spank them silly.

    It's hard to blame Leaf fans for the way they feel about their team. The Toronto/National sports stations are all Leafs all of the time, they never let off the gas and this is a big reason why the fanbase is acting this way, they actually believe it.

    I actually threw the question out to Leafs fans on the main board and predictably they are trying to walk back expectations. As if any of them expect the team not to come out the division easily. As it stands if the Leafs aren't North division champs in the playoffs that's a huge choke. They've dominated the division all year, to lose in the 1st or 2nd round should be seen as a major failure given where they're at today.

    I disagree. You can reasonable conversations with leaf fans I find. Bruins fans are just completely intolerable.

    In my experience, Bruins fans are mostly bullies while Leaf fans are mostly full of undeserved arrogance. Bruins fans can kick my ass but Leaf fans can't explain why they are better than me. They just are.

    Like I said the line is effective but Armia is just a passenger on that line. We all know what happen with Armia plays 2-3 good games then vanish for 10. It's been that since his arrival.

    Also that Danault line is putrid since Danault can't find feed anybody. Not by scoring a goal at 1 feet from the net last night that will change my opinion on that.

    Its his agent pumping his tires but that is an interesting stat. Frolik is a good depth piece to keep around.

    One was a quasi exhibition game. I know which is more dramatic for me.

    The Soviets did it 5 on 5, and it was artistry. Its much harder to pull off with 4 additional players on the ice, and the skill required to do what they did was apparent. You see Barcelona do it I football much the same way the Soviets did it on the ice. I love their brand but there are people out thee who can't stand barcelona's style as well.

    For 3 on 3, it's a clown show, and exposes the three on three session for what its always been..... A sideshow.

    It's too far removed from actual hockey to be taken seriously, except for the fact that they count in the standings so heavily.

    I'm not trying to trash him, because I really am rooting for him, and he's looked good this season, but the fact that 35-year-old walking corpse Corey Perry has the same amount of points as him, in fewer games, worries me.

    To see Petry come in the zone and then dish to the trailer and youre not quite sure WHO it was going to be, and you just see this little #22 in red JUMP on the puck and it was like, oh my god could this be happening and he goes and SCORES in OT again, even my ol man father texting me "is this real life?" lmao

    The best part about that goal? the classic off the post PING that comes with most of his goals if youve watched him, the cole caufield special, what an actual SNIPER its crazy
