Masai is awesome.

Lucie was fined the equivalent of a double double coffee. $5000.

Brutual.

This word you just made up honestly blew my mind.  Gonna use it on so many brutal days that are mutually brutal with a friend.

They also tuned out wilson and maurice before that.  Playing bad defensively in toronto has been around since the first lockout.

They didn't tune out Maurice.   Maurice was part of Cliff Fletcher's hatchet disaster as temporary GM.

I don't think they really tuned out Wilson, either. I wouldn't even say they tuned out Carlyle. They were still very much playing his system - it's just that his system was, you know, not a good fit for the roster.

With Wilson it was more so the goalies tuned out saving the puck.

Why bash the goalies when Carlyle basically bashed Reimer in public?  It would have been better if Carlyle said something positive in public then took Reimer aside privately and told him he sucked but he could play better and hoped he would.

Not sure what you're getting at in relation to my comment.

Lucie always gets pretty upset at a clean hit. He also did the same to Emelin earlier in the year. Please suspend him one game.

I believe he denied doing that and proceeded to call Emelin a "chicken" for hitting him or something.

Then you have the always wonderful Boston media: http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/2014/04/in_defense_of_lucics_cheap_shot_-_welcome_to_playoff_hockey.html

I don't know what's going on with Santos. Sure, he got the save, but a double and two walks later and they were one hit away from losing. He certainly doesn't do things the easy way.

Well his 2 saves before that were 1-2-3 each with 5 K's (not including last night of course).

Datsyuk with a ridiculous goal late and Wings win 1-0.  Also Lucic is a dirtbag.

Yeah no way I'm moving Gardiner AND a 1st for "culture change."

Best way to "change the culture" is get as good a team as possible and win.  You win, magically you have a good culture.  Don't make trades with culture specifically as a reason.

Crazy considering how those pitchers were pitching entering this game:

@gregorMLB

Entering 8th inning, Loup/Delabar/Cecil/Wagner/Santos allowed just seven ER in 30 innings, 2.10 ERA. 0 inherited runners allowed to score.

Miller lets in 3 goals on 7 shots in the 1st.  3-2 Chicago after 1.

Ah, my reverse-jinx worked.

Then made 35 in a row.

Initial 20-man roster has been announced - Reimer, Kadri, Rielly are the Leafs on it.  No Bozak, for now anyways.

Full roster (so far): http://stats.hockeycanada.ca/roster/show/1160884?subseason=153007

Scrivens joins Reimer in net. I'm sure that'll be a neat moment for the two of them.

Reimer's going to thank him for taking the #1 job in Edmonton before he could get traded there.

Kessel/Bernier too good to get into those sweepstakes, even with Dandy Randy.

Probably, but, a little more regression here, a little more roster shaping to Randy's out of date style there . . . toss an almost certain drop off in shootout success (as has been the case with every other team that had a really successful shoot out season - expect the Leafs to be closer  to .500 in it next season) and they might not be all that far out of it.

Maybe.  I was thinking in terms of possession it would be hard to get worse than they were, they've already given up a record number of shots in a season...I don't know how much further they could fall, and I think Bernier would prevent them from falling that far (I don't consider a 2% #1 chance or whatever like this season to be a lottery team either).  That's not accounting for an injury to Bernier or whatever.  Would just be difficult to be that bad again with this roster.

It also worries me when I hear people say it couldn't get worse.

lol

EDIT: Let me clarify my lulz - I didn't say they couldn't get worse.  I said it would be difficult to be worse than how badly they were outshot, and how badly they were possession-wise.  It would be difficult for NHL players to drop further below those numbers, as they are among the lowest of the low - so even the worst teams have been around those numbers.  Unless Glenn Healy straps the pads on I think it would be quite the feat to be that bad again with a roster that shouldn't be that bad.
