    Perhaps if there are still any holdouts, they can see how important (and difficult) the traits Hyman brings actually are.

    Yes Caulfield looked like a peasant against us last night, but he is still tremendously talented. Very similar to Robertson. Just doesn't seem fully ready IMO. both highly promising young players, just need to figure out how to play as an undersized player at the highest level

    Foligno will prove his worth after May 14th. Until then just stay healthy and ramp up.

    Unfortunately, I think this year car flags is only thing we will have to support our team.

    Which is why Calgary worries me more, Montreal is not really that sort of team, they want to play a free flowing game but just don't have a 1st line talented enough.

    Since Sutter took over the Flames, same number of games played as Toronto, (exclude Vancouver because of Covid) Calgary is #2 in GA in the North, #1 in least amount of Shots Against, 2nd best in SA/SF differential, best FOW/FOL differential, #1 in FO%. Calgary lacks talent but they play a lock down system that the players have bought into.

    Calgary beat us last game 3-2 in OT by playing that boring, clog up the neutral zone, low risk, boring Sutter hockey.

    It was not Tavares. He found himself surrounded by habs with no one to pass to. And Willy hanging around and chatting with penalty box keeper at the same time using his stick as a cane.

    I know your joking but you might be right in some sense.

    It like teams in the NFL get up for the Patriots, teams in MLB get up for NYY, maybe teams really want to beat us?

    On the Habs lone goal, I think Holl was a bit thrown off because he was expecting some back pressure from Nylander (so Holl backed off a bit) but Willy just kinda coasted there behind him.. Holl still should have stepped up on the gap but I think that's why he didn't

    Like they do with almost every forward. Who was the last star forward that they developed and kept for more than 3 years? Richer? Carbineau? Muller? Koivu? Gainey? Is Gallagher a star?

    Habs posters already talking about how their lineup doesn't suit Caufield otherwise he would be scoring. That poor kid, he is just not anywhere near ready for the NHL period. Montreal media (like our media) is ruthless.

    LOL I was laughing as some media were billing it as American snipers going head to head, it's more like head to hip.

    I think the big difference is Caufield is being viewed as a savior in Montreal. The expectations are honestly ridiculous. Robertson is coming into a team that already has it's superstar forwards. If he can develop into a dependable top 6 forward for us most Leaf fans would be thrilled and there really isn't the need to rush him.

    Willy has really been F-ing the pooch lately. I noticed in one of the Jets games, he did as little as possible on one shift, he could have checked the puck carrier but stayed back then went for a line change, he purposely didn't engage the puck carrier because he wanted to go sit down. The guy is so damn talented but his effort level is the $#its. If he had a motor like Hyman, Nylander might be challenging for 2nd place in the scoring race. He's not a guy you want in your foxhole.

    Yep, in the English Championship last year, Leeds United were dominant. They play an intense man marking style that is a nightmare to compete against.

    I believe every team they lost to last season, went on to lose the following game, bar one.. Many teams failed to win the game after playing Leeds. Cos it took so much out of them to compete with them.

    I'd overall this year say he's more engaged and aggressive in his puck pursuit, but he still has the odd moments where he loafs it. Not too many games this year that you can say he was checked out of.

    We just need to hope he'll step it up in the playoffs. His production in the playoffs hasn't been that poor but it'd be nice if he was more aggressive and engaging to win battles. That's how he takes it to the next level.
