    Actually Scheifs line matched up against Staal at home. Laine/Stats line played primarily against Koivu's line I believe. Can't remember now, someone had a graphic. But I know Scheif was up against Staal's line at home.

    You know what's nice about renouncing the bull**** HFboards driven hate for Laine and the Jets?

    I can finally look on these threads as the stupid waste of time that they are, and just enjoy both players development. Both are top 5 players in the 20 and under age group, and both are absolutely electric to watch. I've never had more fun watching hockey since I started enjoying the Jets again. Both them and the Leafs are very fun teams.

    it wasn't w comparison to Lowry tho
    just the fact that they didn't get anything done in that game either

    that's why I brought up that lowry line is supposed to be a 4th line

    I'll please ignorance and didn't read the whole convo you had with the o the poster. I'm just saying. I don't really like all the excuses always made around here for why the jets play well or did better

    I was more arguing his one particular point about that match-up, not trying to comment on the Jets as a whole.

    The roster constitutions on that team is great. Four strong lines built with a nice blend of skill, speed and physicality. Big, physical defenceman lead by guys like Byfuglien and some underrated guys like Morrissey. A great young goaltender who has looked pretty good so far through two games.

    A lot to like about that team and look like they are built for the playoffs and have earned everything they have accomplished.

    Nope, I ignore those who aren't interested in having a conversation and just want to take shots at the Leafs. People can disagree if they want to give reasons, but I've had enough of the bashing so I just ignore those who I know find their way into every Leaf thread to take a pot shot.

    Boston sweeping the leafs is bashing them? sorry but one team has got to lose
    leafs fans need a reality check. that is all
    "worry about winning a game" has been said by leafs to jets posters all season
    so the irony would be kind of funny(sorry)

    past few posts I've actually felt like I've defended them more than anything

    leafs got a promising young team, but everyone seems to get ahead of themselves

    You talk about how everyone needs to calm down, but you instigate like you're Brad Marchand posting here...

    No one is ahead of themselves, IMO. The team finished 7th overall and just happened to get seeded against the 3rd best team in the NHL. Bad draw, and the Bruins have feasted on poor goaltending. I don't think the play has been as lopsided as the scores show.

    Personally, I am just hoping the series improves quality wise at this point. It's been pretty lackluster. Pasta had some pretty goals but they were just piling on. I want some drama, some big dramatic goals, and no injuries.

    You're over-emphasising the supposed "problem". It's an issue if a franchise player has yet to perform in big games.. but I stated clearly that he's only 20 and has a lot of time to figure it out. Psychology is a huge aspect in sports and even bigger in big games and it's not like he won't be more composed with age.


    You want to narrow it down to just the first round of the NLA/Liiga playoffs and ignore the WJC, WHC, these playoffs and this:

    it's a 3 year sample size of various different settings.


    You're right 3 points in 4 games isn't bad and he's not to blame for a team loss. NLA is nevertheless easier to score in with less competition with the bottom teams being worse and the depth being a lot weaker than in Liiga. Despite that even the top NLA teams are almost never on par with the SHL and Liiga teams in Champions Hockey League.

    Lol. Excuses galore. Over a Jets team missing kulikov, enstrom and Perrault.

    sample sizes are so small now that we can't really say anything with much certainty, but Laine has certainly played much better than matthews these playoffs

    I guess, seeing as you're from Vancouver, you have a lot of time on your hands right now.

    1 shot in 18 minutes tonight...can we now dispell the myth that all young players don’t struggle in the playoffs when games don’t go well.

    As we saw in tonights game, Laine has a hard time against prime opposition playing on their home turf. I don't see him doing any better against the better teams like the Preds so it will be a hard road for him should the Jets make it through the first test.

    With 6 minutes of PP time to boot. Wasn't able to watch the game but one would expect him to have more shots on the net with that PP time. Not sure what happened.
