    -Why on earth does Bolland get demoted to the third line?
    -Ranger needs to play to get back into NHL form. Not playing does not help this.
     
  3. Leafs @ Predators: Thursday, 10th October - Bernier in net?

    Leafs about to hit the ice at MCC.

    McLaren skated on his own before the practice. Hopefully he is ready by Game 11. Kule was put on LTIR yesterday.

    Switch Bolland and Kadri.... Bolland has been great with Lupul.

    Rielly will be Franson, Gardiner with Ranger.

    Everything else looks fine.

    Edit: Also, this isn't thread worthy, could have posed this in the post game.

    I was wondering about that when Franson said in his post game interview that Kuli had a broken ankle.

    he's not being "demoted", thats just how the lines go. although Carlyle seems to like the bolland/raymond pair.

    ranger could use a night off.

    He's outplayed Kadri without a doubt and had great chemistry with Lupul. There's no reason to demote him.

    Kadri played crappy and got demoted. He hasn't really blown the doors off anyone and really pushed for his spot back. At the same time; even if he plays better he may have to stick it out until Bolland shows he deserves to be demoted.

    Sucks that we're getting hit with the injury bug already...

    Can't wait to see Leivo in a regular season game

    Then what are you using for the shutdown line? Kadri and Leivo?

    It's fine to say that Bolland has played better, but if you are going to give Kadri the Grabo treatment he's not going be nearly as effective out there.

    Wouldn't mind trying:

    JVR - Bozo - Kessel
    Lupul - Kadri - Bodie
    McClement - Bolland - Raymond
    Ashton - Smith - Orr

    Gunnarsson - Phaneuf
    Rielly - Franson
    Gardiner - Liles

    If this team is going to lack toughness then it might as well ice 3 competitive lines and bring back Liles till Ranger is conditioned or Fraser is healthy. Bodie can fill in on the 2nd line as long as he just keeps it simple, he will need to just skate fast and battles in the corners.

    ^^ I like these lines.

    The only thing I'd adjust, is probably keeping Raymond on the Lupul line. The 2 of them see to be playing well, and Raymond has looked a live-wire every game so far.

    I'd also like to see Ashton play more - good combination of speed & grit could really be effective on that third line.
     
  15. Leafs overdue by 40 minutes for their practice and not on ice yet.

    P.S.: This is looking more and more like Ron Wilson hockey lately. Everything except for goaltending (in b4 "perimeter shots").

    There's a joke about Paul Ranger not being up to speed in here somewhere.

    Joffrey Lupul is not practicing today. Unclear why as of yet. Did miss a week in training camp with back spasms.

    Yikes.
    Not going to score many goals with that lineup (out of control). And when your best center is playing 3rd line as well (not exactly out of control).

    Yep injuries are making our depth non existent at the moment.
