we're still talking about Josh Leivo?
What's even better is that so many of their home plate chances come with guys wide open in front against a moving goalie.Boston seem to be generating much more in "home plate" while the Leafs are focusing more volume on the right circle (Matthews wheel house)

There's a few teams that seem to be closer to the goal than us, but if you don't take the media-driven narrative that for some reason we have to win this year, you can relax and enjoy the process.It’s unfair how good that Bruins top line is. It’s unbelievable. Not sure if they’re beatable this year.
I don't know about that man. The cap is probably primed to explode shortly (like, triple digits within 4 years) and those kids aren't likely to have the same kind of pull that Willy-Mitch-Auston had.Even when the cap goes up we will be crunchy, guys like Sandin and Lilly are going to be very important.
Captain Obvious says every penny you can save in one position can be spent somewhere else.
I know the Boons were playing a back to backer, but their top line was outplayed by Danault-Tatar-Gallagher last night.The Bruins top line is a good example of familiarity helping out as well. All those guys know exactly where to go and they seem to have many different plays that they execute so as to not get figured out quite as easy. Extremely evident on the PP where I feel they must be basically calling plays out there because once someone rotates into another position, everyone reacts and changes spots.
One thing I hate that the Leafs do is the same zone entry play on the PP, why not mix it up and not have to have everything go perfectly to get zone time? Like the Bruins, the leafs top PP should be moving around as well to generate space and open looks. We certainly have the talent for that.
