    I am hoping Freddy puts together his best game face this go around. Morgs is healthy and i know he roughed it pretty good this year, he is big for us to beating all teams this playoff. Tavares, i just think he will lead with a heavy game this playoff. I’m thinking he will be our Mvp. Just a hunch. He’s a handful when he is just showing his hockey smarts. Now he is healthy physically and our vet that will be important.
    Keefe should not hesitate to implant Clifford on the left side of either Matthews line or Tavares lines when-the first signs of players taking runs at our top six. It should be instant because Clifford will never hurt you defensively. That is directly pointed at Foligno or Anderson or who ever else needs a punch in the mouth. The rest have to know he will be watching their back. Kappy can twist off on the middle weights.
    Keefe has really constructed his lines much differently. I’m not sure what he is up to with the wing switches etc. Seeing Hyman on the right side will be strange. The strategy to this is a completely unknown right now. Willy is on the left wing. Keefe has this set up for complete interchangeable among the top 9 i believe. Eg: he could flip Marner and Hyman now that they are both right side and have Nylander//Matthews/ Marner in a quick last change move in the offensive zone. Any zone he seems set up pretty nice actually for flexibility.This is not going to be the same old roll your lines sh!t we had to endure with Babcock Leafers

    Hopefully Robertson keeps the Mogilny #89.
    #32 is available. I think he should be wearing #33 ;)

    Yeah that’s fair, I’ve just seen this far too many times to think he’ll do anything different

    He definitely had his moments where he was floating, but he did a better job staying engaged this season so maybe its just cause it was the first game back.

    I can see the logic. But they still had one of the leagues worst PPs. Wither way it's a pretty jarring difference e from how many other teams are going with a 4-1 setup

    Over the season Nylander was one of the teams leaders (if I recall correctly) for close to the net goals. I don't buy the idea that one hit will erase his devopmental progress of the last few seasons. His change in shooting habits has played a big role in why his numbers have gone up.

    Imo too many folks set in stone their opinions on young players way too early. They're still works in progress until they start to hit their mid 20s, especially when it comes to their all around game

    Bend and SNAP

    In all seriousness willy should play with a killer mindset. When hes attacking and shooting and passing when needed that's when hes best. I dont want a passive nylander who just defers. If he has a shot take it.

    Timid time is definitely over. The Leafs already have three rounds of experience against Boston and Washington over the past three years, and they've represented the East in the finals twice.

    I might try that in a sophistical, but also in a real hard way during these playoffs. This will keep us suckas on focus as other organizations are hating on us and being motivated by hate. That goes real deep mayne.

    Dude seriously go for it. Nobody cares about all that photoshop stuff; your prose is more than sufficient.

    I like the number being used on a scorer so he's qualified for the number in my mind. A 4th line plug wearing that number would be a joke

    Just win, I don't care how or how many just find a way to win this son of a *****

    The off-season will be grim if we can't start showing some developmental growth and advancing through the playoffs, no more excuses

    Add me as a +1 for a @Coachcorner GDT, other suckas will be jealous as **** when he starts twerking on that thang
