That lineup is atrocious. Is Cleary really getting 4th line time over Tootoo? Will Tootoo be a healthy scratch?

 

Hahaha - yeah, the reason that lineup is atrocious is because of the difference between Cleary and Tootoo.

 

 

Don't see the point in keeping Sheahan up if he's not needed at centre.

 

Probably because he is a first round pick that they need to make a decision on prior to next season.

Babcock claims to play the guys that work hard but yet Cleary is done and still draws into the lineup. Every player outplayed him last game but yet Tootoo gets sent down.

What an absolute joke to send Tootoo down.

Babs loves dano, and has no use inside his system for toots. Been this way all season. Unless dano single handedly starts losing us games, he wont b sent down. Its just not going to happen.

I'm pretty sure this was a cap move.  When someone comes back, someone must go down.

With Weiss on LTIR, that should free up $4.5 million in cap space? Roster size is an issue but I don't think this decision comes down to money anymore.

This is the truth so Babs needs to shut his trap about playing the best players each night.

This is absolutely a cap move but there are 2 duds on this team Sammy and Cleary that are taking up 2 roster spots from guys that deserve to be on this team. Just wait until more come back and Jurco gets sent down and Cleary stays..... its going to happen.

This team is pathetically soft. Good luck getting anywhere in the playoffs with a lineup like this.

We are pathetically soft, but I'm not sure what you're basing the no-chance-in-the-playoffs part on. We beat the Ducks in seven games last season with pretty much the same roster, and we took the vastly superior Cup champs to overtime of game seven. And so far this season we've handled the Big Bad Bruins - everyone's pick for the biggest, toughest team in the league - pretty well. And before we let the bigger, tougher, scrappier Leafs back into the game on Saturday, we were handing it to them in pretty much every way, driving the net on our first three goals and such.

 

Granted, the playoffs are a different animal. But I like our chances in the East. (I believe the West is the much tougher conference, physically and overall.)

 

Maybe we add a little sandpaper at the trade deadline?

I love the amount of skill and finesse this team has, but it needs to be complemented by some snarl. I'm not saying we should convince Peter Worrell to come out of retirement and think that's enough snarl, because ultimately, one-dimensional enforcers dont typically play in the playoffs anyway. There will be plenty of snarl available at the deadline. As it stands right now, I don't see this team being able to physically endure a long postseason. We're too fragile. Look how many players are hurt right now. Granted, every team goes through spells or injuries. We seem to go through a lot of them.

I actually very much agree with where you're coming from. I'm not really sure why I was disagreeing. I guess I just thought it's a bit much to say we have no chance in the playoffs. But I realize that, in saying that, I'm basically saying we should be happy to make the second round, maybe squeak into the Conference Finals. Which is lame. It should be a Cup-or-bust mentality, so: no disagreement here. We need to get much tougher if we want a real shot at the Cup. Definitely.

 

If it has to be one guy, I'd like Wayne Simmonds. I'm really into the idea of trading Franzen (and maybe several other pieces) for a genuine power forward. Not that this would really make sense, but could you imagine Simmonds and Tootoo on the same line? Fireworks.

I'm a fan of Simmonds, as well. He's one of very few old-school power forwards in the league today. I'd be intrigued to see whether Holmgren would trade him at the deadline if Philly is out of the playoff picture. Probably not, but stranger things have happened.

I'd like to see Franzen and maybe Andersson (or insert other bottom 6 forward who doesn't seem to fill a need here) for a power forward like Simmonds.
