Wow, can you believe that Jake Gardiner has been healthy scratched two games in a row? I mean, that’s nuts. There’s gotta be a better way to arrange that blue line without sitting the guy you just signed to a lengthy, expensive contract.
If only we had some smart hockey minds to tell us how to fix our mess. If only there was some group of handsome and sophisticated people out there who can get this defence sorted out. The writers here at TLN certainly don’t fit that bill, so let’s turn it over to our readers.
So hey, you’re the new coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and your first order of business is to sort out the numbers game on the backend. Who are your six guys? Who’s paired with who? Who’s sitting up there in the fancy press box? Or maybe you’re rolling seven defenders? Whoa, that’s crazy.
Throw up your answer in the comments section below, and have fun thumbing up or thumbing down everyone else’s response.
Congratulations to Coach Frank
Looks like Coach Frank was pretty popular last week, after suggesting that the Leafs should trade Lupul and Bozak. Good job, Coach!
Boo You, Juan
On the other hand, Juan’s idea to ship Reimer, Nylander and a pick to Winnipeg was shot down pretty damn hard. Don’t think Leafs fans are ready to move on from a guy they drafted a few months ago, even for Evander Kane.
