Anyone notice that half the players on this team were drafted/ brought over by the previous regimes. Found that interesting.
That's not surprising, it's only been 3 years since Nonis was canned and 4 since Shanahan took over.

Ya, and the core is mostly made up of new players from this regime.

Matthews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly, Andersen

Rielly is the only one from the Nonis/Burke days.
Baaaaaaaaa!

well there's still Kadri, Bozak, JVR, Gardiner from the main roster. But as for draftees I wouldn't expect a new regime to ship out prospects since most need 3-4 years to develop.

Yes, but if you want to identify the core of the team, it's Matthews, Nylander, Marner, Rielly, and Andersen. Everyone else around them are replaceable.

Unless we get a crazy offer, I'd rather keep Bozak and JVR for our playoff run.
Baaaaaaaaa!

Damn this loss against the Blues HURTS! :( Less than a minute away from winning and we let in a goal and then in OT we get a breakaway chance don't score and the Blues comeback the other way the next play and score and win. Really sucks that the Leafs are so poor in closing out games.

And also what happened to our offense!? We can't score worth a damn these days while our defense has improve compared to the beginning of the season. Really sucks that we can't get both going at the same time. :/
Toronto sports teams..............forever cursed. Profound sadness. :(

Freddy the Goat scores!
Also, I love how they didn't edit out the Flyer's defenseman when he yelled "F*CK!" after missing the puck leading to Brown's breakaway goal. LOL.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I'm getting tired of Gardiner. What a terrible defensive effort on that play. Once again, our Dmen didn't play the pass and instead overplayed the puck carrier

Another game another OT loss by a 2 on 1 rush. This team is falling fast in the standings. Next.

I know you're like the most over reacting fan of any sports Team in Toronto ever on RFD, but the Leafs aren't falling fast in the standings at all. They are firmly in third place in the Atlantic and have 11 points to play with.

The guy clearly can't read. Apparently being up 11 points for a playoff spot is a bad thing. Go figure. And remember, he's the guy that thought Canada Jrs couldn't win with Carter Hart, so his opinion carries no weight.

I didn't like how Nylander played the 2 on 1 in OT. He should've been back checking at the shooter, and leave the puck carrier to the defenseman. Bad read and both players ended up attacking the puck carrier.
Baaaaaaaaa!

I don't think you actually watched the hockey game I'd that's your actual opinion.

Do you give up a Nylander or Marner for an OEL or Karlsson if they become available?

OP please change title to "Offense looks dead"

Seems the Leafs have regressed as much as the Oilers. Main difference is the the goalies.
