BINGO!

And I think Boyd may be better than Spezza.... He centers my 4th line.

Thornton-Boyd-Simmonds
Spezza-Barby

not sure if Boyd actually played C in the NHL or if he's only been used on the wing to get his nice stats. Keefe choosing to keep Brooks on the taxi squuad makes me think he doesn't see Boyd as a C.

That was my reaction to people dissing Drouin. You can't ignore 3 assists and the guy was actually skating instead of floating. Suzuki effect.

zeke dissed Drouin...so one of them had a bad night

He played center the few times I watched him at least.

EDIT: # of faceoffs tell me he was a C.

I'm surprised you guys aren't liking Thornton on the first line. I thought it was a good first game.

A lot of turnovers. The puck was dying when it ended up on Joe's stick. He doesn't know where to put the puck for those two yet. Away from the puck he was fine. Good defensively, good along the boards. But the puck went the other way almost every time he touched it.

There’s only one player on the Leafs that gives me pause or any concern whatsoever. One.

And Brodie does look totally useless so far.

Should’ve traded for Kuemper and Kessel, ditched Freddy, passed on Brodie and gone with Lehtonen and Sandin.
