    +1 This seems like a persistent theme on this board, particularly coming from the pool of long time members. Sense of entitlement and security breeds their bully mentality. Kind of takes the fun out of things on a pretty regular basis.

    My appologies Darts, Montreal IS up 3 - 0 on the year so far.
    I stand corrected.
    Even better for Leafs Fans.

    I think it's more a reflection of their characters than seniority.
    You're right, it stinks up the joint.

    We wouldn't be in this playoff race if we had a backup who could win a few games. Campbell looks like a good addition. Missing Rielly hasn't helped.

    The Leafs may still lose this game, but I don’t think anyone can disagree that the Clifford fight gave the Leafs a lift as they played with a lot more emotions after.

    You have to expose 2 F and 1D signed through 2020 - 2021 with 40 games this year or 70 games between this and last year.
    Kerfoot looks like he might be the other forward.
    Another possibility? Not sure if he meets the games played requirement.

    "Maple Leafs re-sign Martin Marincin to one-year contract
    theleafsnation.com › 2020 › 01/10
    Jan 10, 2020 - The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Friday the club re-signed D Martin Marincin to a one-year contract."

    P.S. It was nice to see Roman Polak (#45) out on the ice.

    He's signed for 2020-2021 but doesn't have enough games under his belt.
    He'ld have to play another 22 games this year, doubt it's going to happen.

    Looks like Holl is the prime candidate then unless the Leafs sign one of Barrie, Ceci and Muzzin. Doubt Leafs will let Dermott go.
    That Barrie is scary. He rushes in and Matthews ends up playing defense.

    Seeing more and more shootout attempts where the skater doesn’t appear to maintain clear forward progress.
    I’d love to get an official interpretation of Artemi Panarin’s SO goal in Minnesota tonight.
    It was hard not to watch it in slow motion and think, like... “Seriously?”

    As far as I’m concerned they should just scrap the shootout and play 3 on 3. If still tied after 5 mins then each team takes turn for 2 mins 4 on 3 until one team wins. I’d like to see the game decided on team play rather on a skill contest. A lot of people criticize the “loser point” but I think that’s more legit than a “shootout point” as you should be rewarded for having played tied after regulation.

    Which is different than football, baseball or basketball. Just saying.

    Having the final outcome decided by a skill contest is also different than the major sports you mentioned.

    How it is determined is one thing and can be changed. I was referring to the part about how a team that gets past regulation deserves something and pointed out how that is not the case in the other three major team sports in N.A. and nobody seems to have an issue with that.

    Personally, I don't mind letting a game end in a tie after overtime as long as the point system changes.
    Win 3pts., tie 1 pt. with guaranteed 1 pt. after regulation.
    The 3 point win changes everything, gives huge incentive to play for the win right through.
    It won't happen though, the present system keeps almost everybody in the race until the very end.

    Agree totally.

    This is unfortunate. Never like to see anyone hurt, but he was also a tradeable asset in the wagon that could have been included in a package to solve some problems. Dwindling options for the Leafs now could mean some tough choices ahead.

    They better hope Campbell doesn’t get plucked by Seattle in the draft.

    That's what I'm worried about.

    If so, maybe they can get Hutch back.

    The flu must be running through the Leafs roster.

    I don’t have an issue with eliminating the “loser point” as long as the game is decided by a continuation of the game, just as baseball, basketball or football do. I just don’t think it’s right to award any point(s) for winning a skill contest. I don’t have problem with penalty shot during the game as it is part of the game but imo shootouts only belong to all star games.

    Here's a radical idea. If not 3 point games with 3 pt for regulation win and 2 for overtime/shootout win do all games worth 2 pts. 2 pts for regulation win. 1.5 pts for overtime/shootout win. The other .5 pts goes to loser in ot/overtime. Yes, half points. Why not.

    It's wonderful to discover an open mind.
