    You'd think NHL.com would know we're all smoke and mirrors and that we shouldnt have won any games yet.

    Maybe someone should send them an email with a link to advanced stats info?

    The Leafs are fortunate to be 3-0 so far. When the D starts playing at even an average level, that's when I'll be impressed.

    Barry Melrose probably just saw the standings and boxscores. To say that the Leafs have been rock solid all around is pushing it. They could play a lot better than these first three games.

    For a team that's only played about 3 decent periods so far, I'll take the 3-0 record.

    We've had a horse-shoe up are behind all season. The Montreal game we played well but crapped the bed in the later stages, they came within one and had the buzzer been extended for 5 mins they would have made the complete comeback. Philly we were putrid, our saving grace was Bernier stood on his head and we got 2 quick strikes. The Ottawa game we were doing everything we could to gift-wrap a win for the sens, we were lucky to claw our way back from 4-1 to win it in a shooutout (can't expect to do that too often and win). No denying the Leafs have skill, no doubt they are physical but there is an overall an emotional immaturity on this team that needs addressing.

    Maybe, but apparently we're not good enough to be a top 20 team according to nhl's latest power rankings,

    I believe we "answered", otherwise we'd be 2-1-0

    I really doubt he's watched the games.
    I like Reimer, but I don't think he was solid the other night.

    unanswered means scored in a row. They did score 3 unanswered goals as they scored 3 in a row

    Did he not see, that LAVIOLETTE was the problem in Philly and that's why we beat them.

    Man, we're a tough crowd to please. :laugh:

    In most publications, we are torn to shreds by the local nerd hack writers. Now we have a legit former NHL coach doling out the praises and we all refuse to buy it.

    I know some of our players have been sloppy, but most of the guys in the league are at this time of year. It's why there is so many PPG superstars like Frattin and Bolland still.

    When things tighten up in a month or so, we'll see why we are still in the picture, it'll be because we are still scoring a lot, and our goaltending is almost never easy to solve.

    i dunno why people bag on Advanced Stats. if Reimer remains in net on Saturday the score is like 8-3 Ottawa. Not our (advanced stats fan) fault that Bernier is solid at his job and can save situations. doesnt mean he always will.

    Trouble is, it's backhanded praise because he sill picks us behind...

    Not really. Most people have picked them to be the class of the conference. He says we are right below them, in his eyes. That's not really back-handed, the way I see it. I wouldn't put us above DET and BOS.

    OTT on the other hand.....:sarcasm:

    Think everyone's so used to failure that they can't be happy with a 3-0 start. Honestly I wonder how many years it will take until we had the level of optimism that existed before.

    Defence has been shaky, but forwards are scoring, goaltending has mostly been solid and special teams are doing enough to get the job done. Yeah, we're not perfect out there, but good enough to get the job done gets you in the playoffs so we just have to keep it up.

    When Anderson isn't standing on his head the Sens look very average, I like our team better.
