    I'm glad someone brought us Quinn, because I can recall quite clearly him getting ripped endlessly when he was our bench boss, now he's a legend. Hmmm.

    A very wise poem there and firing up that winning spirit clearly. These people can feel it and the Leafs will do something special too tonight.

    That's a very deep thought analysis and sighting there sir. The Quinn Babcock connection is so treal I can't even descripe it any more better than that. Pat Quinn memory exists and now we are making new ones and ripping them too.

    Boston are not the 92-93 Red Wings. No one remembers their goaltenders? They weren't Tukka Task. The Wings didn't finally get their cups until they got Vernon, Hasak, and eventually Osgood got a lot better.

    The Knights wouldn't be 3-0 without Fleury. They've played really well but he's been amazing.

    It's almost like it's good to get saves...Imagine that.

    I think it’s time to give Kapanen a bigger role. He is competing and you can tell that he is ready to pop given the opportunity. He plays with an edge. Frankly, I think he is the better option than Nylander at this point.

    Babcock is a very good coach, and has done a good job winning with a pathetic d core in Toronto. He needs to wake up and play Kapanen in the top 6.

    One thing noticeable about Kapanen - bit of an ******* as well.

    Mucking it up after whistles. Talking smack.

    Need some (any) level of pushback tonight

    Well I did say good things about Kapanen, Dermott and Johnson. I also said that ACC gives them a chance to hit the reset button and if they can grasp it good for them.

    I only praise or blame whatever the team is doing. I don't just wear blue glasses of Leafs and cheer everything they do.

    You guys got screwed off the bat with the draw, the Bruins have been one of the hottest teams down the stretch. Momentum in sports is huge. Tough spot down 2-0 but the old cliche rings true, you are not out of it until you lose a game at home.

    Respecfully,

    gotta love random things like this. People said random things like this with Tomas Kaberle. Guess what he won a cup. Cant win with Kessel, guess what he has 2 cups. etc etc and so on and so on. uneducated hockey opinions are great. lol

    i maybe overly positive..but i also say when players need to play better. i also dont see the point in speaking in absolutes, such as "cant win with andersen" when thats not been proven really. last year while he wasnt amazing he was good enough to win with. this year he needs to be better but that can be said for everyone.

    I remember that series vividly, and I like your optimism.

    The thing is, that '93 team was stacked with experienced veterans and won that series with heart and determination. Detroit had a much more skilled lineup than we did but we outworked them when it mattered most.

    If this team has any chance of making a comeback, every player has to put in a much more determined effort from here on in.

    I agree. I love what i'm seeing from Kappy. Wish we'd get more out of other players. Kappy is pissed and it shows. Other players have to play angry too but be composed. If someone hits you, hit them back. Don't take **** from anyone wearing a spoked-B jersey.

    Well he has been shaky at best with the Leafs and really bad in this series. Also I didn't say can't win with Andersen, but I am also not the one who thinks he is elite.

    He is an average goalie and can lose the whole team games any time he wants. That's how bad he is when he is bad.

    I'M GUARANTEEING A WIN TONIGHT.

    People give up so easily. We were down 3-1 against the Bruins in the 2013 playoffs after they stole games 3 & 4 from us at home. We fought back and won games 5 & 6 and almost....almost won game 7.

    3-1 is much more difficult to come back from than 2-0. We've come back from 2 games down against the Bruins and we'll do it again!

    This is a very resilient group and tonight's result will be indicative of that.
