Kindl sure does look promising. He's playing with quite a bit of confidence out there.

Meanwhile, Ericsson is playing like a beached whale.

Does Ericsson think he's auditioning to be a regular in the SEL?

More like the roller hockey league.

That's it. I'm convinced after watching this game that our season is officially over.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Ericsson could have at least had the decency there to force Phaneuf to drop the gloves.

He looks absolutely nothing like the player who stepped in and played such solid minutes in '08. Really bizarre.

Anyone have a thought or maybe even know why Babs is playing Jimmy with the B squad for the pre-season?? Is he thinking that he will get more action thus better practice? I would think he would want to build his confidence and these pre season games cant being doing that seeing as how many goals we are giving up?? Thoughts?

He's a real professional, and so he really shouldn't be susceptible.

yeah there was an article about it, he wanted jimmy to get some good practice and see a lot of shots

Coach Mike Babcock said on Friday that he wanted Howard to "see a lot of rubber'' tonight. Chances are, he will have a lot of shots fired at him.

It looks like he gets hyper active when there is a scatter around the crease.

He still needs work on some rebound control.

Jimmy has made some pretty big saves which is good to see, but I wish he would stay in his net abit more.

I'm watching this game and I feel like everybody is playing hard. Everybody. Yes, even Ericsson.

Playing smart? That's a little different.

Jakub Kindl impressing I see.

Never gave up hope. I've been saying for a while now that it wouldn't take him long to overtake people to get a regular game this season. :thumbup:

The game itself seems pretty even 5on5 but eventually the inexperience gives the Leafs a bunch of power plays which has skewed the score a little bit.. all in all most players have impressed me, Ericsson looks like he is trying too hard and frustrated already.. Emmerton has been good and I am loving Mursak and his shot.. like to see atleast a fight in the 3rd (im looking at you Ericsson).
