I despise them for that series.. Despise them.

Me too but that team did what it needed to win in the playoffs. Something that Trotz’s teams have done like Trotz calling Wilson’s hit on visnovsky a good play because it removed one of our better defenseman from the fold. Strategic is the term I think he used from what I remember it boiled my blood. That’s something this team will do now under Trotz which it hasn’t done since Arbor.

No I’m not saying systematically go out there and take players out I’m saying you can bet your arse they’ll do what it takes to win. That’s all anyone cares about in the end is winning not how you got there. This team will have that edge now under this coach.

I’m hoping they're a little tougher on him feb 28 in a physical sense. They certainly got the important part done none the less...

Some more gold from the Leafs thread:


Right so the Isles can overpreform and become a playoff team when they are a lotto team on paper.

But the Leafs can’t beat a slightly better TB team in the playoffs.

You are aren’t being a homer at all right now.

They’re still crying over there😢

“Slightly better team in Tampa.”
😂😂😂😂

They have an overworked goalie in Anderson and maybe and I mean maybe the third of the defense Tampa has. That’s subject to change they have the cap space and I’m sure Dubas will TRY to add but givemea(frank)ingbreak. Delusional

They would be smart to "go for it" this year. Not saying anything is guaranteed, or even likely, but it's not a sure thing they're able to keep the whole gang together with Matthews/Marner needing new contracts after this year.

100% and I’m sure they will go for it. They have a good team if they make the right moves then they challenge a playoff veteran like Tampa. Though the team as assembled now I would put my money on Boston or Tampa taking a series. Just plucked this off the Sabres thread not sure how accurate it is;

Housley wouldn't say which forward is coming out and said that Eichel is a game-time decision. Eichel was one of the few that skated this morning. Smith will play either way. Pilut and Hunwick are out. Hutton is in goal.

I say the Leafs go for it like Garth did when PB was on a cheap contract.

All healthy #Isles on ice for morning skate. Tom Kuhnhackl and Luca Sbisa skating as an extra D pair and Ross Johnston appears to be an extra forward. Not surprisingly lines and D pairs the same From Saturday’s 4-0 win at Toronto.
