    Definitely will be Goat

    Ennis-Lindholm-Brown gives them a more threatening 4th line

    This is the correct answer. Maybe a game in the press box will wake him up!

    turn that frown upside down and trade away Conor Brown!
    The GOAT Goathier should maybe go too in a package with Brown ($2.1 mil!) and Hyman ($2 mil!) for some offensive skill and speed and the odds of that happening are not too remote
    We all know Leafs Nation is concerned that the Leafs have too much of this Soviet Red Army type skills fixation, makes many penalty box sitting appreciation Leafs fans frown
    Thank goodness for analytics, and our technocrat geek GM Dubas! Maybe he can make a trade with Edmonton, as they are a very badly run organization that we could get more "Scouting Staff assigned X's" coming back then out the door, we could move on from good Canadian Kid goat to gloat!

    When I was saying put Leivo on the 3rd line instead of useless Lindy most these guys here were praising Lindy. Here we are a little later in the season it becomes apparent.

    Lindy is an AHLr

    And Leivo, is turning into a bonafide top 9 forward on the Canucks. Thanks Babcock.

    Yeah the fans over there love him as a 3rd line digger. Good on the wall, good possession guy, wins lots of puck battles for them and can slide up.

    I sure hope it would be the Goat.
    What has he really done, seriously, & I do realise he gets into battles on the boards and-all, but he hardly uses his size the way he can be effective, if that's why he is here for. He was a pin-ball 2-nite fcol & not much useful in recent games.

    But again, that's just my armchair coaching rant/opinion.

    Gauthier, and Lindholm will go back to centre on the 4th line.

    Lindholm should.
    Goat probably will.
    Knowing Babcock, don’t count out Johnsson.

    Did you guys already forget Gauthier was the consistent scratch when Ennis was healthy? It’ll be him 100%.

    It'll be the Goat. This may not be a popular opinions around here but in think Ennis should be the 13th forward. They're lot flashy but I like the 4th line centered by the Goat, and Lindholm offers more flexibility.

    Don't get me wrong, I still like Ennis' feistiness and ability to pot the odd goal, so this is a good problem to have .

    The fourth line is dominant with Gauthier as C.

    Lindholm over Gauthier for PK usage so it's tough to call.

    IMO it should be Ennis Gauthier Brown

    It will be a Ennis-Lindholm-Johnsson 4th line. Which doesn't make sense to me but I'm sure it does in Babcock's world.

    Hopefully this isn't another Kozun situation. Start out on fire, big time ankle injury, just couldn't get it back.

    Seems like exactly the kind of player the Leafs could use right now.

    I dunno man, remember in the game against Ottawa when there was a scrum and Freddy bailed. I heard a fan yell cmon Freddy, don't forget you are a big boy too!!
    I noticed that last night Freddy was very heavy on the forecheck and if thats the Freddy we will get in the post season he is 100% staying our 4th line C and Lindholm will be coming out orrrrrrrrrrr
    drumrollll they all stay except for Brown cuz he is going to the Canes for TVR

    If Goat and Lindholm play like they did last night, Ennis sits. Babs just needs to convince Goat that a dozen of his friends and family are in the stands.
