A weak PP call for Montreal, in Montreal, with 2:00 left in a tie game?  Wow, never saw that one coming.

I'm usually not one to complain a lot about the refs, but that's I'm thinking as well... just did not seem like an appropriate call.

And maybe you call that normally, but not after you've just let 5 or 6 infractions go in the 20 seconds before that.  Why that one?  Baffling.

Absolutely brutal.

What a joke after letting everything go.

Giroux just got his first shot of the SERIES 6:00 into the 2nd period of game 3.

I'm going to enjoy when Montreal runs into an actual NHL goalie.

Easily the worst team in the playoffs.  They look awful.

For the love of god, why was loup not yanked after walking 3 batters in a row?

Because Gibbons loves him and he's a dolt.

Well I think it's partly a product of his babying some of the starting rotation. Morrow was yanked after 5 innins, 2R and 95 pitches. It's more difficult to burn relievers when you still have half a game to finish.

Gibbons also loves to play the splits. So Loup, a LHP who can't throw a strike, might be more appealing to him versus a LHB in lieu of a fresh RHP. It's the same with Lind, who Gibbons sits against LHP despite his replacement is a barely minor league bat like Moses Sierra.

I understood the reasoning so I was okay with it.  Read that Loup had 13% of his career walks in that inning.  :o

Can't believe how thoroughly Guelph has beat down Erie so far.

Probably just want them to be around the pros for a bit, get a taste of what's expected, etc.

I understand if you think the awards are meaningless or that they don't always follow the descriptions, or just going on sentimentality alone, but if I'm going based on what the NHL says the award is for, I don't see how he qualifies based on this season.

It's those 2 things. Nobody cares about the Lady Byng in particular and everybody loves Teemu.

I'm definitely not going to lose any sleep over this, it just would have been a nice gesture.

Well it is the PHWA - all you need to know right there.

How the PHWA didn't get Teemu Selanne involved here as a farewell is beyond me.

See I disagree.  The award says "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability" and, well, Selanne was 268th in points this season.

I understand if you think the awards are meaningless or that they don't always follow the descriptions, or just going on sentimentality alone, but if I'm going based on what the NHL says the award is for, I don't see how he qualifies based on this season.

Most Leafs fans wanted Brown gone when he was here and were all happy when he was dumped.

I don't think most necessarily wanted him gone, but generally didn't think it was a big deal and were glad to get something back for him.

Pretty sure the general theme of a lot of comments on him were "useless pylon", etc.

Didn't seem that way at all from a quick read through the first few pages of the thread where he was traded, which is what my response was based on.  Doesn't really matter though.

ok ok ok so yeah it wasn't all that harsh.

I'm probably mashing the Mclaren chatter together with the Brown trade.

That we can agree on!

Previous winners of the SHL rookie of the year include NHLers Patric Hornqvist, Nicklas Backstrom, Loui Eriksson, and Henrik Zetterberg.  Never a bad thing to be in that company, even if it doesn't necessarily mean anything for Johnson in particular.

The interesting thing is apparently this past summer he got medication for an asthma issue which had really affected his stamina.  Maybe that affected him to such a degree that the Leafs could have really lucked out here.
