    Haven't heard anything on Kadri but I assume he's out tonight.(concussion) Likely Nylander back at centre.

    How good is Johnsson though? He's clearly the best LW on this team by a country mile or 100. Work ethic matches skill. More guys on the Leafs should take a note. Been my favorite player this year.

    Also.. not to kick a dead horse. But 60% possession tonight when Hainsey and Zaitsev weren't on the ice tonight. Why we play these two in a top 4 role literally baffles me. Honestly.

    The only D I trust are Dermott, Rielly and Muzzin. Dermott and Muzzin were gettin bottom pairing minutes until tonight. I've really been having a problem with how Babcock hands out ice time lately. Maybe I'm wrong though.

    I've noticed this too. Let's just hope it's all a part of some grand playoff scheme.

    Yea we need at least one of Hainsey or Zaitsev gone. Preferably Hainsey because it would force Babcock to play Muzzin/Dermott more and make our top pair somewhat acceptable to face a Boston or Tampa offense. Hopefully breaking up the Gardiner-Zaitsev pair as well.

    Babcock's been terrible. Last night was a glimmer of hope as our best players actually played the most minutes, we just got stoned by a hot goalie.

    I brought up that Nylander has been our best player the last month. Last night when he was on the ice the Leafs had a 75% possession rate and outshot the caps 12-2. 59% CF. For those not up on analytics CF is the difference between CORSI events in a percentage. Anything over 50% is great. Shows that his line dominated play more often than not. I'm not a big analytics guy but possession is something I put a lot of stock into.

    Also Nylander is a zone entry beast. Usually always crosses the opposing blue line with control and sets up. Just thought I'd throw that out there because I know how much crap he's taken. His shooting percentage is low. Once that picks up look out.

    Yeah he's hitting his stride and I also see him get it over the Blue line with control and that's HUGE imo. I don't like the dump and chase even a little bit. I don't think that should ever be the goal unless you're short handed or something.

    I understand the need for it at times but what I'm saying is dump and chase should never be the goal.
