    Hilarious seeing you use Babcock as an example for why you're correct considering you bash his decisions more often than any poster on this forum.

    Have a nap. Kadri was garbage tonight, Babs played Brown because he's a defense first winger.

    It’s insane, we win and lose as a team. We need to stop making scapegoats to blame for every bad thing.

    He rarely lost the puck in the offensive zone after gaining it? What game were you watching?

    In that situation, Brown is the better player. Sorry, he is. There's really not even any argument about it.

    You don't play a defensively poor player in the last 5 minutes. Nylander is a defensively poor player. You play your best defensive players in the last 5 minutes, like Brown and Hyman and Tavares and Matthews and Marner and Kadri.

    Exactly if they wear a leaf jersey they are a leaf. I’m hard on brown this season and if we had to move a forward I’d pick him, but the agenda driven bias against nylander is out of control. Plays an objectively good game and people still want to rip him

    He did and Leafs were back in the netural zone.

    What game were you watching? Nylander SUCKED tonight; and Babcock rightfully benched him

    Or do you think Babcock is an idiot for benching Nylander?

    You’ve spent years harping on the quality of wingers Kadri is given. He was given our second best winger, shouldn’t you be happy?

    Nylander is prone to errors, but he's not bad defensively, at all. I'd hate to see you coaching the team in the playoffs. We'd have a hero line our defending the lead in the third period I can see it now.

    Hyman-Gauthier-Brown out to protect a one goal lead with 5 minutes left in the third. All about dat defense turtle.

    ohhhh...... right..... Nylander was so great that he scored all the goals and his zone entires were legendary; it was naz and marleau that bring him down those scrubs

    LOL did I do this right?

    I love it how nylander fanboys spin the narrative all the time

    This is just as absurd as those saying Nylander should have played the last 5 minutes. No doubt, Nylander had at least a solid game. He definitely didn't suck.

    Nylander was okay. Made a few good plays, on the defensive side of the puck.

    On offense, Nylander has to do what Marner is doing. Ever since they played Marner with Kadri, he takes it to the net. Of course, Marner misses the entire both times on his glorious chances in the 3rd period, at least he had a chance.

    Nylander, and Matthews too, not many chances at all.

    Take it to the net!

    :silly:

    He scored just as many goals as Marleau and Kadri did, and created more scoring chances on his own, instead of killing them like Naz did tonight.

    Watch the game and stop rambling incoherently.

    Gauthier is not a defensively reliable player at the NHL level. At least try to actually put some thought in your responses, please.

    I get that, Nylander is insanely skilled, and a terrific player. But it worries me that the only player dropped out of the top 9 is Willy, who's costing us 7m when soon we're going to be pretty cap straddled. Never said Nylander should be winning selkes, but that goes for basically all of our top nine.

    I don't wanna Willy traded, im not harping on him I thought he had a good game. But Babcock is our coach, to the dismay of some -- if he doesn't trust Willy, well he doesn't trust Willy.... And having a 7m player who your coach doesn't trust... Well management may think that money could be better spent elsewhere.

    I think it goes the opposite way.

    If you don't trust the guy to play at the end, why give him $~7 million?

    LOL

    Kadri had 4 shots on net (none of them from Nylander's pass); sure Kadri and Marleau were killing the plays while Nylander the brave soldier was doing all the work LOL

    Where are brown, hyman and Kapanen going? All 3 will never earn more $$ than nylander or matthews or marner yet all 3 will always be trusted at the end of games. This logic is very very flawed

    I mean I thought it was pretty obvious that it was a tongue in cheek sarcastic post, but apparently I was wrong. I suppose you can't expect much from somebody who is favor of benching Nylander with over 1/4th of the period remaining because he's scared of the New Jersey Devil's and their 3 shots at that point. No reason to mix things up when they're working, period.

    Give him another chance!

    We gave Nylander another chance!

    He deserves another chance.
