The Leafs need to work on themselves.
Regardless of what you think about Campbell, you're not gonna win many games scoring only 2 goals. Holtby was great, but we whiffed on a ton of chances in tight
Lack of giving a &$&* shows with this team
Just bunch of pretty boys.
I never want to see Simmonds in Leafs uniform again. He just sucks in every way. He was brought in here to do one job and he can't or won't do it
So where are the fans who just want the two points? did you get your two points?
Having balls still pays off in this league.
This team loves finding new ways to embarrass themselves and let down their fans.
Holtby stands on his head, Campbell lets in a stinker to lose it.
Seriously though, did any real Leafs fan looking at the storyline for this game expect us to win?
It's long past time we accept this team has a "finish" problem. We've too long blamed it on "ran into a hot goaltender".
Campbell is really regressing to the mean and fast.
Once again this team is running into finishing trouble. But for reasons only knuckle dragging Neanderthals would appreciate this team thought the best option was to go out and get a 33 year old grit grinder and let Hall walk to the Bruins for as cheap as he could be gotten.
Foligno better f***ing impress. Because right now we’re hurtling towards another pathetic first round exit because WE CAN’T F***ING SCORE WHEN IT MATTERS!
How do you lose this game lol
Good for the Canucks. The Leafs got exactly what they deserved tonight. You want to squander 20 ridiculously good chances, against a bad team missing a bunch of players, starting a backup goalie and coming off of Covid-19?... You get to bathe in your embarrassment for a while.
I was actually rooting for the Canucks down the stretch (as I posted in the game day thread). Leafs didn't deserve to win with their inability to finish!
This game could be the season-ender if Hyman is hurt.
Jacques needs to be better.
Feels bad man
I love Jack but he doesn’t strike me as a goalie that will take you all the way.
No Pettersson, Schmidt, Demko...um, other players the Canucks have who are totally as good as Matthews and Mitch?
I'm sure our friends in BC, high off the fumes of that dank BC weed and their own farts, are like 'lol best team in Canada lol!'...
If Holtby doesn't have a twice-a-year caliber performance, this is a 6, 7 or 8-2 laugher.
How did I know after Matthews scored that they'd get one back? Not one, but two terrible goals to Bo Horvat, Jacky boy...
Stop f***ing showboating for f***s sake Mitch. Nice giveaway on the tying goal BTW.
Jake Muzzin is once again Jake Muffin, but TJ Brodie had a much better outing.
We missed Willy, he isn't out best forward but he was our best forward tonight.
Man, I always liked Alex Edler - he's been a classy Swede, quiet and reliable for years but that knee was as dirty as it gets.
On the main board thread 'but but...three minute shift he was like tired!', next time you work a twelve hour shift go and beat the shit out of a stranger, see how the law treats you. He should get at least two games.
And while we're at it these suspensions are 99% of the time bullshit. Get five games for ending a guy's season and hurting his career?
Start hitting these guys with big dollar fines - and I'm not talking five grand, Auston makes that every two minutes of game time.
I want to see 25,000 for a first offense and doubling on each subsequent.
Believe me - even Tom Wilson isn't stupid enough to get hit with a $500,000 fine. Put it in the old timers pension fund.
By far the most annoying thing about today has been reading people like 'Oh it's so wrong to force the Canucks to play!' and 'but the Leafs can get Covid 2!'
It's not the Thing; it's a f***ing slightly more virulent strain of the Flu.
Player safety is pivotal but then what, should the Canucks forfeit the season then? Ok, let the players forfeit their salaries and the team their 1st wherever it lands.
That's what I thought.
Ok Campbell has made it clear why nobody has given him a starting job in a decade.
Zero faith in team to out goaltend or out coach any opponent. Our unreliable offense will have to carry this team as far as they're gonna go.
Are we sure this is the right thread this time?
Lets get Rittich in there for a stretch.
lots of skill but not battle. The coaching seems off too... don’t get the activate the defense stuff. Seems like it causes much more chances against then for. Lastly.... ban spinorama no look passes.
Get well soon Fred, we may still need you.
Way too much over-passing early on. Leafs have been getting away from tight, physical D. They are reverting back to soft, fancy hockey and looking for the perfect tap in goal.
Campbell had a weak short side tonight.
shoutout Rielly for the awareness to pass to Matthews when he didn't even have a f***ing stick
This team has problems
Gutless, no idea why we can't score these days. Its absolutely enraging.
Crazy how we're so good 5v5 but suck 5v4 and 3v3
Making the opposition goalie look superhuman once again. Campbell has had a brutal week.
Eh. Take the point. Hopefully Hyman will be okay. We got screwed. It happens. Onto the next.
