    Mantha is Lazy and He Sucks

    I'll be honest, I think Mantha's been pretty bad so far. I realize it's four games in, but he and Larkin need to be our top players every night and Mantha isn't really holding up his end of the bargain. And it's not like AA where the chances have been there over and over and he's just snake bit. Mantha is pretty invisible most shifts. Just my two cents though. As I said a week or so ago, I'm pretty happy with the kids, the grinders, Bertuzzi, and Larkin. I need to see WAY more out of the veterans. Mantha, Vanek, Nyquist, AA, Neilsen, all need to step it up.

    Let's not just pin this on Glendening. Daley is an offensive black hole as well and Mantha looked like he was asleep all game. So the combination of the three was an all around bad choice. Maybe Cholo-AA-Bert or something?

    I don't mind us being bad this year as long as the right people are good. I'm genuinely pretty happy with our kids. In this game I need to see more out of Mantha, AA, Vanek, and Neilsen in particular. I thought the kids were as good as they should be and I liked the veteran grinders. Our scorers didn't exist tonight.

    Curious to see what they'll do with Jensen and Frk before the next game. Gotta figure Jensen plays at least.

    Cholo was good. Sulak struggled. Hronek was bad. Hicketts was fine. Ras was meh.

    I don't really understand putting Daley and Glendening out in overtime. At all.

    Lose for Hughes? It's like you're not even trying. Ray Ferraro already comparing the Leafs to the Lemieux/Jagr Penguins. Can't wait for them to underachieve so I can watch Leafs nations lose their minds.

    Joe Hicketts throws the puck away a lot. Should fit right in with our existing defensemen.

    Ugh, I have to listen to Jack Edwards tonight.

    Yup. And again, I'd reiterate we played 5 rookie defensemen. So there were plenty of gaffs to go around. It happens. Not too many rookies are gonna consistently get the best of Patrick Kane regardless of how good they are.

    Against a defense that has only one regular in the lineup. I'm not too worried. Add Daley, Dekeyser, Ericsson, and Jensen to Kronwall and Cholowski and I'd say we probably let in a few less goals.

    Thomas Vanek is a freak of nature.
