Game 7: Your Toronto Maple Leafs v. Bahston Broons | Just Win Baby

Post #1 by Thomas Malthus » Tue Apr 24, 2018 10:22 am

We've won 3 of the last 4 games and could have won the other one. Fred looks like he's back. That third period might have been some of the best hockey I've seen from them this year.

Get it done, boys.

He's been pretty good. Winning a lot of important draws in our end, among other things. Expect him to get a decent offer from Lou in June/July.

I never said that, I said there was no point in going all in because the path to the SC is too difficult for us this year, and I stand by that. I sure am happy we traded for Plekanec in hindsight though, not so much about not trading JVR, he is who I thought he was.

So many things about that play. Marchand lobs it trying to get a faceoff, but Freddy just punches it out to the corner to kill time. Then Patty's interference is exactly the kind of shit Boston would get a way with. Nice to see that going our way.

Hilarious seeing Backes going down like he was shot.

Considering the obstruction the Bruins have gotten away with all series long without being called for it, I'd say it's more than evened out.

Exactly. It makes it even better knowing that the rat was the one who coughed up the puck to Mitch on the GWG.

In the first period Riley Nash drilled JVR when JVR had never even touched the puck. Even when the Leafs get calls, they're still only make up calls for things they got fucked on earlier.

Earlier in the game, Kapanen gets hauled down and then his stick gets knocked away from him. No call.

I’d prefer if they just kept the whistles in the pocket. Every time toronto gets a pp I assume there’s gonna be a makeup call in no time.

I do not want the pasta line to regain their mojo.

He's been heavily sheltered all series with heavy o-zone starts. Ill be shocked and disappointed if they dont upgrade there this summer.

Prepare for shock and disappointment when the blatantly obvious fact that there really are no better UFA replacements available comes home to roost. He'll get an offer from the Leafs.

You’re like the personification of a deflating balloon flying across the room.

“Go Leafs Go!!”
“Yeah but this team has shitty players on it”

Guess what, chooch, EVERY team has players on it that ‘need’ to be upgraded. You gotta work with what you got, and shit ain’t gonna change at this point in the season anyway.

In fairness, he's hoping Tavares wants to play 2nd fiddle.

A boy can dream.

Bozak won a couple of key defensive zone draws on the right side in the 3rd last game. He's tied for 3rd on the team in scoring in the playoffs and has upped his PPG from the regular season. He's taken the second most faceoffs on the team in this series and is winning them at 55%. But he - like a lot of other very successful players around the league - gets favourable minutes so fuck him. Babcock likes vets, gave Bozak an "A" and uses him a lot for right side draws. Babs likes his draws, and he's a stickler for handedness. Ever notice that when one of our Cs gets tossed from a draw, the entire formation changes to reflect the handedness of the replacement and where the original C goes to play?

You know who gets more OZone Starts than Bozak? Kucherov, Stamkos, Boeser, Pasternak, Kessel, Malkin, Tarasenko and Turris. It's almost like coaches compromise and have specialists in order to maximize the potential of their roster. It'd be nice if everyone had a whole team of Bergerons or Bob Gaineys. Alas.

My original comment was alluding to the fact that many have said the reason we lost 5 years ago was that Bozak was injured.

This time, he’s not so based on that alone we should win. Now swap Marner Nylander Matthews Andersen and Reilly in for Lupul Frattin Orr Reimer and Liles and this shit is a fucking cakewalk. I mean, look at that lineup from 2013. It’s disgusting.

‘Chooch’ is a GTA staple of those guys who are all from different backgrounds and yet somehow have the same accent, and travel up to Wasaga in their civics on summer weekends. They say ‘guy’ a lot.

“Weathers looking good. What are you doing this weekend, Rico?”

Fourteen years ago, I was still a student and it wouldn't surprise me if there'd been a strike earlier in that academic year.

Fourteen years later and there's another strike at York.

A team that applies a lot of offensive pressure will cause more face offs in the opposing zone and then their centremen get demerits for offensive zone starts.

He's been pretty good. Winning a lot of important draws in our end, among other things. Expect him to get a decent offer from Lou in June/July.


He's been heavily sheltered all series with heavy o-zone starts. Ill be shocked and disappointed if they dont upgrade there this summer.


Prepare for shock and disappointment when the blatantly obvious fact that there really are no better UFA replacements available comes home to roost. He'll get an offer from the Leafs.

I'm sure the Leafs will give him an offer, but I doubt they will match the 3 year term he will get on the open market.

You’re like the personification of a deflating balloon flying across the room.

“Go Leafs Go!!”
“Yeah but this team has shitty players on it”

Guess what, chooch, EVERY team has players on it that ‘need’ to be upgraded. You gotta work with what you got, and shit ain’t gonna change at this point in the season anyway.

GO LEAFS. WE GOT THIS.


The comment was clearly in regards to Bozak's impending UFA. Sorry I don't like Bozak?

It's almost like coaches compromise and have specialists in order to maximize the potential of their roster. It'd be nice if everyone had a whole team of Bergerons or Bob Gaineys. Alas.


How many of those guys are playing under 15 minutes a night against the other teams third and fourth lines in the playoffs? And in the last two games, when the Leafs have faced elimination, Bozak is averaging 12 minutes a game, that is awfully telling.

And not one forward had more than 18 minutes in the last game.

Only two forwards have played less than Bozak the last two games, his linemates.
