Lol, the lengths some of you guys will go to avoid admitting that the Leafs are the top team in the division. They’ve owned WPG and EDM all year, on the offensive and defensive sides of the puck.

Someone else on this thread cited their dependence on the PP, even though they’ve won six straight with a single PP goal.

Anyways, it was a good game last night. Fairly balanced, but the Leafs simply have more dangerous players. Gallagher would have helped for sure

perhaps this is something they weren't necessarily expecting, since usually the habs still needed to contain the laffs' offense but were able to exploit their weaknesses in their own zone

in previous years yes but this is what they've seen from the Leafs all season. Toronto has been way, way more committed defensively this year than in years past. the Habs knew what to expect.

Leafs are lucky, their star players are made of glass, 1st round exit, they suck

I don't know if you have adblock or something but I keep finding it weird and funny to see Pat Dussault's Sportnet ads all over HB

Clearly the best team in the division, not 100% sure I would pick them to beat the Jets in a 7 game series though, tough call

until the young centers take a major step forward in their development, the Habs will remain a very inconsistent team.

Agreed.

How many years left on that albatross Drouin contract? Could really use that money to come off the books. I haven’t been ‘impressed’ with him since after the first week of the season. Not sure what some people are seeing in his game honestly.

Oh and Drouin and Toffoli on the same line does not work.

No one is winning the battles along the boards on that line.

he was a disaster in his zone on some shifts against TO's top line.

It will take another 2 years IMO before KK and Suzuki are more mature and ready to perform at a higher level...consistently.

can't remember if he signed for 5 or 6 years but this is his 4th year in Mtl... after reading what he said about his wrist and not being able to shoot the puck almost a year and a half after the injury, and seeing him on pace for like 7 goals in an 82-game season, that'll be a nice contract to eventually get off the books.

Maybe put Perry in Gallagher's spot... and put Staal on LW with Kotkaniemi and Toffoli

Here's how I would roll the lines tonight.

Tatar-Danault-Perry
Toffoli-KK-Anderson
Drouin-Suzuki-Staal
Byron-Evans-Lehkonen


I feel Perry's role is the closest Gallagher clone we have and should help that line.

KK thrives best with fast player (Anderson) and they can both give strong forcheck so Toffoli can read the play and create turnovers.

You give Suzuki another centre to help with faceoffs and give them a bigger player to fight along the boards. Hopefully Drouin/Suzuki find back some of that chemistry from before.

The 4th line is... well the 3 other guys who can play well enough.


At least that's my opinion.

I don't know how feasible this would be... But we need to bring a grinder from Laval...

Not sure which one plays a good physical game...We have enough of Ice Capades on that team...
