    Do it for my boy, Leafs.

    Nylander has played in 3 playoff series to date and never scored more than 1 goal in any series.

    Starting with these playoff qualifiers will be a good opportunity for Nylander to start making an impact after coming off a good regular season.

    He has a good opportunity to start shedding some of his doubters and also solidify his spot on the team.. If the team is having success and Willy is a strong contributor to that talk about dealing him for a Dman help will die down.

    For this team to make an impact Nylander has to gain another gear and some snarl in his game.

    He tends to take a backseat in the playoffs and folds when things get to physical (maybe anxiety).. he needs to be okay and get comfortable with physicality. He's a big boy, he can handle it, he just needs the confidence.. once he gets confident to accept being hit and throw some back himself he should be our 2nd/3rd best player... It's up to him though. He needs to NOT be invisible come playoff time. I really hope this is the year he learns this lesson.. he's one of my favorite players and this would be huge for his development for his career.

    Nylander was one of the best players in the Washington series. Overall I agree with you, but I think this can apply to Marner too.
    Both have had 1 good series, 1 bad series and 1 ok series.

    This year he has been far more engaged in puck battles and going to the net. I wouldn't be overly concerned about Nylander not being able to handle things.

    I'm set up similarly in deciding to watch the games by the pool or in pool as my man cave is set up off the pool deck, just open the patio doors and you have front row seats to the big screen, with the pool fridge within arms reach.

    Playoff hockey in August with the temperature near 30 is going to take on a whole new strategy.. There will be more fans in swimming pools watching games then fans in the arenas.

    And the last playoff series against Boston his line scored more goals than the Bruins. He had Marleau and Brown as linemates who were both having down years offensively, but he still put up the 2nd most 5v5 points of any Leaf that series. Was also kept off the 1st pp unit too.

    But he got hit hard in like game 2 during 1 play, and unfortunately that's all some folks seem to remember

    Sorry to hear that, when we lost our last one, it took as 2-3 years to get another one. Took a while to get over it.

    Does anyone feel that it's not quite fair for the Leafs to have to play this series to qualify for the playoffs because at the time of the pause they were only 10 games left and they were in a playoff spot. I'm sure that I would consider it a gift if the situation were reversed, but the teams that were in a playoff spot must feel a bit cheated.

    No as there were 10-13 games left for teams, and teams could of bumped other teams.

    I wanted simple points % at the time. I’m over it now but yeah it was nanny league giving all the undeserving kids a cookie too. All good now.

    Edit: That said, it is not something i would totally disregard in the future as possibly very good for the league. I wouldn’t be opposed to 24 teams from now on. It really makes the president’s trophy and seeds way more prestigious and important. The draft is flawed the way it went down and would need a twerk.

    We wouldn’t hear the end of it if we were Montreal or Chicago for sure.

    Johnsson joins the practice today. This could be huge for the Leafs.
