    again we need a freddie miracle to make it a contest against a good team or we would lose. In most of those games we are getting outshot and outchanced by 5 to 10.


    knights won ....needed a freddie miracle (almost 27 saves in 3rd period and OT)
    flyers won .... needed a freddie miracle (outshot bad 40 to 26)
    washngton lost x2
    tampa lost
    boston won ... needed a freddie miracle (outshot bad 46 to 29)
    st louis lost
    boston lost
    montreal lost x2


    their best games were against
    detroit, columbus, ottawa, SJ , LA , minesota.
    a bunch of garbage teams that will finish in the bottom 5 of the league.

    Oh come on, Andersen was bad for us early, it’s okay to have a goalie steal games, kind of how it works. We’re due some great tending.

    Missed the Vegas game? We played B2B against these teams and I'm pretty sure they don't have B2B in the playoffs...

    They will be fine as long as they can compete at a high level.

    Fail. You honestly think Vegas who is one of the best teams in the league is going to just lay down? It was a pretty evenly matched game but keep the negativity train going there chum.

    Teams like Vegas do expose the Leafs down low. They get hemmed in their zone far too often, and that is a combination of many factors. An easy fixable part is soft board play by the Wingers. VGK pinching when ever they wanted.

    Leafs cannot break teams like VGK cycle, and they need a stiffer #3 center and 2 physical dmen.

    This is what regular season is for. To get exposed a bit, and still find a way to win. This is why you pay Freddy and this is what franchise goalies do. Dubas AND Babcock need to make the proper adjustments. The PP will work itself out. VGK goal only allowed 6 PP goals and scored 5 short handed. +1 goal differential while shorthanded. That is off the charts.

    If next to the games they lost...you added ...Freddie Shyte-show,then maybe I could say your just trackjing how Freddie does. And who cares about shots on net? Maybe they were all from the perimeter or on the many PP opportunities.

    Maybe take a step back,find a new perspective...like ,the team is on a 3 game win streak,are currently tied for 6th over-all,just went thru a brutal october sked ,with injuries . Is everything perfect? of course not...nor will it be!

    Every good team has a great goalie.
    Isn't that what they mean when they say build from the net out?
    The only position that usually plays every minute of the game

    We wait for the opposing team to show what they have so we know exactly how much we have to give to squeak out the points. That’s how it feels.

    Every good Leafs team I can recall had premier goalies steal games. Cujo, Belfour, Potvin, Palmateer, Andersen....isn’t a coincidence.

    It's funny to me that you named 6 teams and said they will finish bottom 5 in the league.

    Edit:
    You beat me to it
