Leafs need a culture change. Nothing going to change just by making trades. They got to start playing like NYI, Pitt, Bos, Col etc. The way they've been playing the last 3 years ain't sustainable to win SC. As a result, I think Keefe is the right coach for the team but we got to change the culture form speed, skill, offense and no physical contact to in your face, relentless forecheck, aggresive

I do think that it'll be very hard to make a trade involving one of the big 4 rn will be difficult.

However, I do think one player the leafs should trade for soon is
Max Domi

Losing Hyman was a mistake on their part, he’s exactly what they need. They need players like Hyman, Coleman, Tkachuk, Gourde etc. Too soft and too much money tied into 3 players. Marner is still young so Tavares would be my odd man out but I doubt they trade him.

Did I just see Mathews wearing a purse?????? I KNEW IT!!🤣🤣🤣

I didn’t see it, but I’ll take your word for it. This is the first game I’ve seen all year because of work. Spezza needs to be rewarded and moved up the line up. Bad 2nd goal by Campbell, but I think he’s a solid goalie. Time for a few players to wake up.

They were showing the Leafs new casual look and he came out of the bus with a purse. 🤷‍♂️.
I didn't catch the game, but something must be wrong in TO. had Keefe lost the group?

I don’t know but I should go back to listening to the games on the radio. That was brutal.

I saw the purse on Twitter, lol. Maybe asking for the boys balls to drop come playoff time was too much for me to ask.

0-4 to start the season,
we supposedly got fire power but there's not much going on. I know it's early but maybe we can switch up the lines a bit. Last years glory is obviously not working.

Toffoli-dvorak-gallager (gritty first liners ( maybe not dvorak but he wins the most faceoffs so far) able to score and shut down first lines

drouin-suzuki-anderson ( make or break line, prove why you belong line)

hoffman-brooks-caufield (let them play with no pressure and bring up a center with dangerous wings for once )

armia-evans-lehkonen ( 4th responsible kill line with upside )

on the defense
it's tricky with not many options

ben chiarot - jeff petry (proven players, may not have chemistry but show the kids how it's done, shut down, play hard and step up)

romanov - savard (play smart, try not to lose your spot)

kulak - wideman (only play more than 10 minutes if were up a few goals)


right now we don't have many options, we have injuries to key player yet will byron, or edmunston really change much?

looking at this team I expected more, atleast on offence, should we fire the coach? are our players not buying in?

let me know what you think?
what changes would you suggest?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hard to put my finger on it. Maybe leadership is the issue? They’re missing Price and Weber, not to mention Perry and Danault left for free agency. Lost a lot of big voices in the locker room. It’s still early, they can turn it around and have the right players to do so.

Agree3 Disagree0

20 Oct 2021 14:18:40
Edmunson will really help on D, I beleive he is very underrated. However, he doesn't score.
Last year a lot of guys had career years, and just everything went right. This year absolutely nothing is going right.
As for some of your lines., I guess it wouldn't hurt to mix things up.
They should score more, the problem i see is yes they have talented wingers, just really no stars, eventually hopefully Caufield can become one. Also, once again, at center, other than Suzuki ( eben though he's been crap) maybe Dvorak will be ok, its just a weak center group, no stars.
I think a big shakeup is needed,
Maybe they need to explore the Jack Eichel trade. However, i'm also skeptical on that. Maybe if they continue this way, they will get their star in Shane Wright. . Who knows., only thing I'm certain of is this team will be NOT make the playoffs. Might be early, but other teams are just to strong.

@sosahabs24 may I interest you in Sean Monahan? 😏.

If I was Bergevin I'd say, let's have a conversation.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 16:31:27
That lineup actually looks deeper than I thought it was. Just need to add a real game changer. Scariest part is with Suzuki, Caufield and Romonov on the team, the prospect pool is empty no?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 23:08:15
Ebs, still some decent prospects, just no one that is a game changer. Guhle looks really good on D, they seem to have a few decent guys on defence.
Up front looks like much of the same for Habs, lots of 3rd to 4th line ( and those are high expectations IMO) . But I can't think of any top 6 potential guys. Maybe Habby could help me on this one.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Oct 2021 22:03:42
How embarrassing, Flames don’t know how to score goals so they have to goon it up. Smh, Andersson deserved a suspension 100%, also Kassian deserved atleast a fine for his hit from behind on Monahan.

Agree3 Disagree1

20 Oct 2021 05:53:44
Least your not a Habs fan. Detroits Bertuzzi scored more goals in 1 game than Habs have in 4. now that's embarrassing .

Agree1 Disagree0

20 Oct 2021 13:17:49
Yikes I mean, Calgary put up 60+ shots in 2 games and only came out with 2 goals and allowed 8… Markstrom is letting in muffins, our goal scorers shoot for the chest, and they sit on one goal leads. Calgary has such relentless pressure but gets rattled easily.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 Oct 2021 19:37:59
Sosa your team went to the finals. If the leafs could do that, I’d be happy for years to come. A cup would be nice obviously, but winning a round or 2 would be a nice start. The playoffs are going to be tough to make, let alone winning a round.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Oct 2021 21:55:30
Thats the difference between a Habs fan and a Leafs fan Toronto17 . Hopefully one day, when Mathews isn't there you'll get to understand what I mean lol. I do remember that great feeling from 93 and 86 when my team won. thank God for Patrick Roy.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 00:12:34
You really don’t like him, lol. I hope he goes to the habs next. Yes, I don’t have many good memories.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 15:07:16
Lol Toronto17. I don't want him on Habs. ever . well maybe I'd change my tune haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 18:33:23
It’s funny how that works. There’s many guys in the league I don’t like, but would love them If they were on the leafs.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Oct 2021 22:02:24
Lol, yup, I also can't stand Ovechkin, ( however compared to Mathews, You'd like the guy) but if had Chariots #8 jersey on, i'm sure I woulda learned to like it. 🤣.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2021 01:19:41
Obviously its early, but this sure isn't the same Habs team that made the Finals...
Unfortunately I believe for every player moved out, or sidelined ( Weber,Price, Byron) the new guy coming in is a downgrade.


Gallagher on the 3rd line seems wrong to me. Not even sure where Hoffman is going to play?.

Obviously its early, but I'm pretty sure this team has a better chance competing for Shane Wright than Stanley Cup.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2021 14:23:29
Looking at the team, they don't really have any first line players. great depth but no stars up front. Shane Wright would be nice at C though! It will be tough to be worse than some other teams though.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Oct 2021 17:36:08
Weber and Price is a huge hit, not just talent wise. They are the backbone of the team, other than maybe Gallagher. I think they’ll be alright.

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Oct 2021 18:59:15
I think your more optimistic than I am Leafs17, that game last night vs Buffalo was one of the worst games I've seen in years. There was deffenitley a presence missing on that team, I believe it was the leadership of Weber that was the glaring hole I've noticed so far. as well as some upfront grit,

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Oct 2021 20:04:24
I’ve said it before, Weber is my all time favorite defenseman. He’s slowing down, but his presence is huge. Some other guys need to step up in the leadership role. I can’t believe they didn’t resign Perry. I’m more optimistic about other teams, the leafs have their own problems. I’m working afternoons, 6 days a week. I’ve listened to the leaf games on the radio, but I really haven’t seen anything other than highlights. I caught the last period and OT of the Vancouver/ Edmonton game. If Demko has a year, I think Vancouver will surprise teams. They dropped a lot of dead weight in Ericksson, Boyd, Beagle and Roussel. Garland, Larsson and Dickinson were big upgrades. Even with losing Edler.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2021 01:51:57
Ya, Perry is another presence that's missing. I was very disappointed he was not brought back.
I agree that the Canucks will be a tram to watch for, I really liked what Benning did, I believe the Garland addition was huge.
As for your Leafs, I kinda think they took a step backwards, losing Hyman was huge, i'm not sure that Campbell / Mrazek are an upgrade over Freddie, however Campbell looked really good against Habs other night. For some reason Engvall looked like a top line guy at times.
Obviously without Mathews, it's hard to judge the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Oct 2021 05:22:16
Losing Hyman hurts for sure. I’m ok with the goalies, if they can stay healthy. Campbell was excellent when Andersson got hurt. The team let him down in the playoffs IMO. From listening to the last 2 games on the radio, I think Bunting is going to be a great addition. He’s not afraid to get to the dirty areas. Kampf is pretty solid defensively. I like having another guy that will fight in Ritchie. I’m expecting the usual with the leafs and hope they surprise me. I can’t wait to actually watch a game, might be a couple more weeks. I took Hoffman in my pool and he’s back soon. I really don’t think any team has to worry after 2 games.

Agree0 Disagree0

Will take some years before MTL might get back to the playoffs.

On the latest episode of the Chris Johnston show, CJ says the #Flames continue to “keep tabs on things” in regards to Jack Eichel.
@moxnix thoughts?

Agree3 Disagree1

14 Oct 2021 18:54:34
I don’t think the Flames have anything Buffalo would want. Unless they’d include Tkachuk, Andersson or Hanifin? Along with Zary, a conditional 2023 1st/ 2nd and a 2022 2nd.

Agree2 Disagree2

16 Oct 2021 06:48:23
Agree with Ebs here no way they want any older player.

Are you kidding? There's no way Ottawa us giving away their franchise player.

Alfredson, Spezza, Chara, Karlson just to name a few so your point is?
