hating on the INCONSISTENT-AS-HELL leafs as usual
For the record I would like to state that I am not hijacking this thread, But am expanding on a statement that was made by the Original Poster.
That being said.... A team that is missing (was) 4 of their top forwards, as well as their BEST penalty killer / defensive forward.. Will always, always be incosistant.. Espcially with the way Raycroft has been playing..
The leafs have the most shots for, are nearing the least shots against... and are the second highest scoring team in the eastern conference... What does all of this point to ? Goaltending..
Now, Raycroft looked REALLY sharp last two nights ago vs tampa.. He made some HUGE saves offa the machine I like to call Lecavalier, but he didn't face many shots... And that has been a problem for him, letting in the softies.. Imo no goalie comes close to his downlow play, but that is also his problem, he goes down WAY too early.. and has a slow glove hand.. Hopefully last game was a sign of what he will bring to the table every game for the home stretch into the playoffs.. Because god knows we need it.
