What Tanner wrote is 100% representative of what all LEAVES fans believe. Stupid LOAFS fans already think the cup has been awarded to the LAFFS.

Jokiharju is already the Hawks best dman, and it's not even close. A lottery pick this year and by 2020/21 season the Hawks will have Jokiharju, Boquist, Beaduin and Ian Mitchell as their top 4 D....with Jack Hughes at 1C

Tanner - never miss an opportunity to bad-mouth the Chicago Blackhawks. Even when discussing the Leafs, who have Ron Hainsey on D.
BINGO!

Yes leafs offense looks good but check out defense and goaltending. How is Anderson a top ten goalie. He has not looked very good so far. The leafs will have to score 6+ goals a game because if they are allowing almost 5 goals a game against non playoff teams. Also look at the teams they played so far Dallas, Ottawa, blackhawks and Candians. Lets see them score 7 against playoff teams.

They have played 4 games Anderson has a very good track record, and is a very good goalie.

Well you see -- and stay with me here because I know you struggle with these concepts -- there are 31 starting goalies in the NHL, and he's better than 21 of them.

31-21 = 10

Try the math again and come back to me if you have any questions.

This is the same guy who just said "Your an idiot" to me. I am not hopeful that his math skills are up to snuff.

Not many goalies throughout the league have looked good so far. So I'm not all that worried.

October hockey sure is a little sloppy but fun as hell to watch!

As long as Freddy can maintain a GAA of 3 or lower (never had season with 3 or higher in his career), Leafs are going to be very hard to beat.

The public isnt aware of this but Andersen has a twin brother called Octobersen.

Octobersen plays until mid-November, when Andersen comes back from vacation and takes over for the rest of the season.

The less the Leafs will score, the more they'll have to play defense.

Also, a gentle reminder, playoff teams in the regular season give the same 2 points non playoff teams give, when they lose.

Season games mean nothing in the playoffs, as has been proven quite often by many many teams.

All that said, its only 4 games in and people are aware this isnt "normal" hockey, its October hockey. Its the time when even bottom feeding teams put winning streaks together, until the serious teams wake up around game 10 or 20.

Hell, didnt Boston have a crap start last year and then went on an absolute tear the rest of the season? October is October.

Exactly. They have to play a stanley cup contenders like Buffalo before come to any conclusion. lol.

Yes, we understand that it won't continue. Offense will come down and defense will get better too. Specially Anderson will be better. Please check the Anderson stats for last 2 years with Leafs. I think he is better than Hutton.

I agree Anderson will get better, but how do you propose defense will get better? Outside of making a trade I would say your defense is as advertised and will likely continue as such. Anderson will no doubt stand on his head for a portion of the games as hes always done but i dont think the GA will go down outside of Anderson having some crazy good games.

Well look at the stats. And tell me how he is top 10 in anything. His stats show he is top 20 goalie and that is it.

Young D tend to improve the more games they play.

The end.

Also Peter never misses an opportunity to go way out of his way to not mention the Leafs. The distane he has for them is unmistakable.
