Greg Millen “ Vasilevsky one of the best in league stopping tips and deflections”

Within 3 min Leafs get 2 goals on a tip and a deflection.

That was heck of a game. Another 40 plus shots against.

Plekanec didn’t have a good debut. But still first game.

Otto was at the game today. He threw his hat on the ice on JVR hatty.

He has some explaining to do to his dad.

So the hat Otto threw (or tried to) is here at the 59 second mark

What happen was someone threw his hat from the upper level and landed near Otto. So he tried to throw it over the netting.

Its been such a weird final 15-20 games to end the season. The Leafs fate has been determined for a long time now..Barring some unforeseen happening the Leafs will be on the road in Boston to start the playoffs..

While the wildcard system seems more exciting and get more teams involved possibly, it doesnt seem to be fair this year in the East..The Leafs who are currently 3rd in the whole East and a good chance to end up that way, will face the second ranked team in the playoffs..

Its also bad for the Bruins, as they are number two and have to face number 3 Toronto.

It might be a unique circumstance this year, but it doesnt seem fair to see Boston vs Toronto in the first round.

It's been like that every year. nonsensical matchups in the first round. I think it should change. Given that it happened to Toronto this year, I suspect we'll see a change for next season.

Im in favor of keeping the same wild card races for a playoff spot, but then just rank the teams 1-8 like old school...

Not sure who it was, might have been on the Leafs broadcast recently , suggested teams pick their opponent ...Seem a bit goofy, but apparently some minor league does it that way. I think your FCHL also does that..Doubt we ever see that.

I like this too, however I think that would do away with the East and the West and would create a lot of extra travel for some teams..ie say Toronto vs a California team in the first round.

I am pulling for some western matchups, so I can go catch some playoff games.

Where I live now I have 4 potential playoff teams within a 5 hour drive

The travel excuse is especially untenable in the playoffs. First of all, it would be the same for both teams, secondly, they have private ****ing jets now.

not when you think about the fans. Does the league want half the Leafs' playoff games starting at 10PM in the Eastern time zone and the LA Kings game starting at 4:30 PM on a Tuesday Pacific time in the 1st round ?

That's a good point. Though the NHL has "solved" this in the Cup finals by forcing the western team to start at like 6 pm local... which is pretty brutal.

I'm not a fan of 1-16 anyways. The furthest I'd go is to seed entirely within the conference.

Wasn't the entire reason for re-alignment so that the Leafs don't play the Sharks in the 1st round?

Let's not forget how stupid the old divisions were.

I would personally be super happy in that scenario. And any other scenario where the Leafs play in California in the playoffs

Yay! (Got him in my big pool, the guy has been a stud for fantasy this year)

Be nice to have Auston back too though, come on Leafs, dress the guy already, you're playing for a playoff spot?, home ice advantage?.......ok fine, a strong finish!!!

He's going to be injury prone and everyone will look back and say "wow Leafs should have taken Laine!"
