Why would anyone abandon this wonderful thread?

For the first time in a dozen years the Leafs are actually relevant. Something that is a bit more than the idle hope of delusional fans.

Next Saturday will likely be a game for first place, matching the team with one of the worst defences against the team with the best defence in the NHL.

But the Leafs can score. So it should be a great game.

Today is Mrs. Spatso's birthday. If you want to extend best wishes to her you can send them through me. I am very faithful in passing on your comments. She is not impressed...but sometimes she is amused.

I think a new one would be epic. With the Leafs being young and the Sens being a goal away I damn near feel like starting it myself!!

It's such a fresh discussion point.

Hate to say this because I know how it sounds as if I am giving Ottawa no credit...

but damn Calgary and Edmonton have looked awful. Have they been this bad to start the season?

- Aetherial



Yeah, no one expected the Flames to be riding so high (third) in their Conference Standings this early in the season. https://www.nhl.com/standings

On the other side of the coin, everyone though the Oilers would be running away with the Conference, but currently sit third from the bottom.

After watching the Sens hammer the Oilers last night, I'll agree with you that they look as bad as their record is ................. so perhaps you're half right in your opinion, as much as you hate not giving Ottawa any credit for scoring 12 goals in Alberta, and only allowing 1.

Last night Phaneuf led all Sens players in ice time.

He is finally getting some recognition for the quality of his play and especially the leadership he provides on and off the ice.

Everyone was so certain that the Sens would stumble coming into the new season because of the absence of Karlsson. So good!

Correction it is Leaf fans laughing. The Leafs are about the worst defensive team in the league. The Sens are the about the best.

Leafs are giving up 4 goals a game. The Sens are giving up 2 goals a game.

The Leafs do not have a steady veteran presence like Phaneuf that can provide some leadership in the defensive zone.

You realize the Sens start to the season has occurred without Karlsson in lineup.

It is a statistical reality that Phaneuf logged the most ice time of any Sens player in a 6-1 win.

It's everyone, man. Everyone laughs at you.

3 wins, 2 losses is a decent start. You're making it sound like they're ready to win the cup, after you were mysteriously absent for their losses.

Are you forgetting about Systemfool, who made a big deal about Ottawa's negative goal differential, last year?

He seems very quiet on this stat nowadays.

Nobody thinks +/- is important. But it does give you some insight. So, we have Morgan Reilly already at -4 and Thomas Chabot at +4 on the season.

Need I remind you that the Sens are one of only two teams, that have not lost a game in regulation?

Also, the Senators are ranked third overall in the NHL, in P%......... so is it a "decent start" or the second best start in the NHL?

Remember when you were discounting Leafs' overtime wins a few seasons back, because they had too many?

Now you're touting your team's 2 ROW in 5 games played as the second best start.

The Sens along with LA are the only teams not to lose in regulation.

And, Tuesday the precious One returns to the lineup.

She is getting ready, we are going out for breakfast and then off to do some birthday shopping. My birthday was a couple of days ago and today is her birthday. We have agreed that our birthday and Christmas presents this year will be a 75" tv (likely a Sony 900e). Purchase will be made during Black Friday. Sales projections indicate that prices will drop another by $1,000.

So I think I will take her to Best Buy and see if we can get a replay of the Oilers/Sens from last night and then I will wish her happy birthday.

Perhaps, however I am most likely going to make the purchase through Amazon Prime. If Costco carried that model I would buy from them because they have a great added warranty on their products.

That is a great post and sort of displaces our 1000 pages of posting over the last few years.

The Sens are actually scoring at a good pace, not far behind the Leafs. But, the Leafs are giving up way too many goals. This will be problematic if they don't tighten up soon.
