Morgan reilly is horrible he is a huge reason along with gardiner they finished where they did, trade them both in same deal some stupid team will think they hit the jackpot....gardiner played the best minutes possible and still was mediocre at best, reilly is terrible he's not ready for the nhl
Hunwick turnover the puck almost everytime in his zone, or makes a really bad outlet pass, has one of the weakest shots in nhl. Marincin is a disaster, can't watch him play! Gardiner should be moved up to forward, because he certainly can't play D, very very very soft in the corners and in front of the net! Seems like he does not want to get opposing forwards mad or angry! How many more times are we going to watch him on power play, skate up to centre and then pass it back, gets very tiring! Carrick is way too small to play D, he gets manhandled all the time, has AHL size. Can not have Hunwick, Marincin, Carrick, Gardiner all on D and expect to be taken serious, Toronto will keep getting our lunch money taken from us for a long time! Washington was just toying with these little boys! Kyle Dumbass stop playing with your computer, watch your little boys get kicked around the school yard!!! This is not the OHL, make no mistake, little boys on defense will never win a man's game! Tough defense wins championships! It's ok the forwards are soft, but defense has stand up, not crumble and hide! Poor Freddie, he was a monster!!!! Freddie was the only reason leafs not knocked out in straight!
its gona be hard to get rid of the crappy defense who is gonna want em? and how the F does hunwick have a A on his jersey r u kidding me? we upgrade on defense and maybe a decent back up and we should be good.
Stupid marincin babcock blew this one big time, way to not bring up soshnikov and trade Corrado, he would have tied up his man , you also could have had Marchenko in this game, hunwick only.d Orth keeping carrick sucks reilly gardiner marincin carrick and zaitsev are all AHL quality players , next season if there is no changes I'm giving up I don't want to see/live thru another sundin or gilmour era ill start routing for buffalo
I agree to trade off those defense. Just toonweak around the net and in the corners. Gardiner wasn't on the ice for thatngoal but when he was playing he was useless. That pass up the middle to the two capital players stops any momentum. His inability to take the puck away on the boards or in the corners. Actually, he can't take the puck away from anyone. So final assessment goes back to lousy defense. It wasn't as obvious last year because of the poor offense but not its glaringly obvious. Get some defense in the summer and the team has a really good future. Otherwise that who cares attitude from two years ago will grow like cancer.
Bundle Gardiner and bozak and get a decent D. Then move Boyle up in bozaks place. The so called fourth line has been awesome. And yeah. Gardiner is just so spaced out on some plays. He keeps quitting instead of following up. Because he doesn't know how to play defense.
"Morgan reilly loses it In his feet" "Jake can't seem to find the puck" "Gardiner gets bumped off the puck" "Reilly takes a shove and falls" "Gardiner slow to react" "That's the 2nd time Schmidt has given reilly trouble with his speed" -THESE ARE OUR "ALL STAR" DEFENSEMEN? I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR FREDDIE ANDERSON THESE GUYS R FACING ELMINATION AND THE D IS A TOTAL MESS STILL, BABCOCK GET ON BOARD WITH THE KIDS AND BRING IN SOME HELP NEXT YEAR FFS.....LEAF NATION IS DUMB BUT NOT BLIND....
Gardiner is laying on the ice watching ovi. No comment fdomnannounceds. Carrick trips but stays in the okay and they immediately yap about his low minutes and not making that play. When did these idiot announcers all meet and decide to pick Gardiner to be a media hero?? Gardiner must have picked up the liquor bill for that brain trust. They will all have to eat their words when Joke f**ks up big time.
Jake is getting schooled.by oshie, when he's not spinning out and falling he's skating away from the play, golfing hail Mary dumps or getting rocked by ovie the destroyer and Turning it over, it's up to the forwards to make it any further this season reilly and gardiner are just hurting the teams cause, these two are flubbers,should be 8-0 Washington as I type this, guess a babcock guarantee is a worthless and Jakes defensI've skills
Gardiner's a lost cause and will need to be packaged with something for trade bait. Keep komarov but not objecting to seeing bozak or jvr or kadri or hunwick going if it means getting some decent defense. Komorov is an aggressive player who creates a lot of excitement with his style of in your face play. Today the boys need to cut back on all the bullshit passing and shoot the puck. Counted 12 passes on one shift of one power play last game including two that should have been shots on goal. So go leafs go.
