    Antropov, while still injury prone, has bulked up a lot over the last couple years which should help be more durable. You never know with that guy, but I like him and support him...I just wish he'd park it in front the target more often.

    More importantly, Antropov is taking a lot less of those "hooking" calls in the opponents' zone. He's still getting PIM's, but they seem a lot less stupid. The Leafs as a whole are still taking way too many penalties, especially hooking.....

    He's also putting that big frame of his too more use now.

    I'll probably always be hard on Antripov becasue the majority of the time I've watched him he just seemed to struggle to do anything good. But he really is having a great start and is being a big part of any success the team is having. I hope it continues, aside from Sundin & Wellwood there hasn't really been a Toronto forward I really enjoy watching. I'll be watching Antripov tomorrow and hoping for another big game.

    I really like Toronto this year. Sundin always, Wellwood back soon enough, Kaberle always, Toskala, Blakes battle with cancer, seeing if their own zone coverage improves. There is a lot going on.

    In Antropov's defense, this isn't exclusive to this year. He missed like half the season last year and still put up 18 goals. He has demonstrated a good touch for the last two years, but his injuries bring his numbers down. My biggest complaint with the guy was the stupid penalties, so I'm loving the new Antropov, and let's hope the new size helps him stay healthy!

    Weird......The Leafs to face 5th back-up in a row?
    Maybe this is why Antropov is lighting it up I'm joking of course...

    Ugh, Leafs just suck this year. They need to stop getting the lead before the 3rd period so they have a chance to win.

    We just need to petition the NHL to make all games only 2 periods long

    This comment seems a little bit rash. Tucker shouldn't be on the 3rd line and I am sure when he is back, he will better than he has been so far.

    So is Stajan a better "real life" player than wellwood then? I just wonder how he will do with Wellwood around.

    I think once Wellwood is back he will see more ice time, Wellwood is a playmaker they need out there right now, Wellwood is one of those guys who could stick handle in a phone booth.

    Hal Gill scores?... a SHG? what just happend in the ATL game? Gill is playing the PK and being more than just effective... if Kubina and McCabe could learn to play like that then maybe we'd be in business.

    That wasn't SH..? Weak effort at the save by Hedberg.

    Tucker is a waste of the 3 million he's being paid. You could get 2 or 3 solid younger players in for that much.

    Wellwood will definately centre the second line when he returns. Stajan may even be doing really well and may get a couple of looks, but my money is on Wellwood centring the second line. Stajan will see less ice time, but it doesn't mean he still hasn't improved compared to last year. I think his production drops when Wellwood returns for sure, but he has improved, so someone to keep an eye on.

    Another high-scoring game with the Leafs. How did Toskala play? More of the same - good outing, but no D-help?

    Toskala was a great in net, if not for him ATL could have won 7-4 or something like that, he robbed Hossa with a quick glove save, which looked like a sure goal.

    They are saying McCabe is probable for tomorrow's game vs the Pens, they have called up Kronwall just in case McCabe cant go, I see they have also called up Jiri Tlusty at forward, I think Tlusty is good enough to be on the team now, kid is fast and has tons of skill.

    Anybody expecting the Leafs to be murdered tonight? Its going to be Fleury in net tonight, no backup that we can easily score on.

    Will be nice to see Tlusty in the lineup and I hope McCabe sites and Kronwall gets a shot at it, we can't have McCabe taking stupid penalties of hooking since he can't skate with the youngin's.

    leafs are screwed tonight, their d is just too damn slow. especially if pitt goes with that recchi - crosby - malkin line they are talking about... look out.

    that being said, the leafs are one of my favorite teams to watch. i especially like watching tucker attempt to check ppl and then fall on his ass.

    Good Call

    Great game by the Leafs tonight, Tlusty looks awesome, he was all over the place tonight, he's fast, always making hits, and he's young, he's just what the Leafs need, two goals in his 1st ever NHL game as well, the 2nd one was a nice goal.

    I think most Leaf fans actually like Maurice as coach. It's just one of those inevitabilities in professional sports; when the team is losing the coach is gone.

    Nice game last night, especially like Tlusty. I was a big fan of his throughout the preseason and thought him and Gamache deserved to make the opening game roster. Now they're both up and playing really well.

    Yeah I also thought both Tlusty and Gamache should have made it right out of camp, both had really good camps.
