Some Leaf fans where quick to wonder why assets where used on Muzzin when they needed right side help more. Well now with Dermott and Gardiner both out week to week it is not looking so bad. Though Muzzin has been showing some growing pains with the system and being caught in indecision. good thing they moved on him early and they can work it out.

So the big return to the Island tonight for Tavares. Expect a flat Leaf performance to be honest. Back to back, backup goalie, down a few D, and won the night before. I doubt the Tavares return means that much to the guys on the ice at this time of the year where playoff position concerns become so real but if I was Babs I would actually push it as they likely will need a spark.

Must be in the stretch drive keep looking at the standings and thinking great have to get through Boston and Tampa in the first two rounds who are a combined 18-1-1 in the last ten. Fifth best record in the league and they would have to make it to the conference final to see home ice if playoffs started today. Well they took Boston last year to seven as underdogs but not all doom and gloom.

God, Babs may be an elite coach but he sure can be exasperating at times. Is he seriously bitching about not having career fourth liner Par Lindholm? How hard is it to construct a viable fourth line given what's on the roster AND the depth provided by the frickin' Marlies!?

the fourth line has been mostly great. the Petan at center last game did not work very well, though the Goat does not share the offensive flair the other three fourth liners bring he does a lot of things that has the fourth line mostly in possession of the puck and playing in the other teams end. Did not here what Babs said about Lindholm but that is my thoughts on the fourth line. Really like Ennis, Moore, and Goat together. Do not know enough about Petan to have an opinion.

Well if one big thing has come out of the Rielly slurgate for me is that an awful lot of Hockey fans on social media have no idea that "rag it" is a common phrase on the ice. Though I guess if you have no actual on ice experience it makes sense you would not be familiar with it.

:lol: "You fuckin' rag it, rag it"

For the record, no BC boys are homophobic. Just ask Razz. :lol:

Carcillo was on twitter saying he hadn't heard it in his career.

I literally yelled it a week or two ago to a D-partner. I can't remember using it otherwise because it isn't exactly common where you'd need to in beer hockey. "Hold it" is like the same, and I've used that a lot.

I don't like that people immediately jumped on Rielly even with the video because the video isn't entirely clear, but the amount of people who just want to let it go or excuse as in the heat of the moment...fuck.

The "fucking" was Rielly and the rag it was from Tampa. In fact you can hear a tampa player on the replay continue to say "rag, rag, rag" as the tampa player picks up the puck in the corner. You can also make out Rielly say fucking hook two times before the one that overlapped with the other audio.

As well my comment on social media hockey sources not knowing "rag it" as a common hockey term it is because after the explanation they question if the term is legit as they are not aware of it and believe it to be made up as an excuse.

Leafs signed Mercyhurst College defenceman Joseph Duszak. Considered a great skater. Could be intriguing.

Eghad....what a sorry state of PC the game and whoever the hell is reporting on that has fallen into. Not even sure how "rag it" is homophobic...people really have nothing better to do it seems. :roll:

Now what I would be more concerned about as a Leafs Fan, media PC shill, is facing the Bruins in round 1.

We know those slurs and others still get thrown around in the game. Overreaction or not I like how the Leafs handled it.

Worth a shot, but the rover game I read he plays likely will not translate but they can work on it.

I have a beer league team mate from the Toronto area. He once told me to "rag it". I was so confused I held onto the puck because I had a mini-stroke trying to figure out wtf he meant. I eventually got over the red and dumped it. He told me I did well. So I wasn't sure if ragging it meant holding onto it or dumping it. And was too embarrassed to ask. :lol:
