    That is not new news.

    However, who would be the top 3 worst defensive forwards on the Leafs? to make it even harder, what's their worst 3 defensively without Lindholm, Gauthier, Ennis, and Moore?

    -Nylander, Matthews and Marleau? When Matthews and Marleau could be argued as the worst "impactful" defensive forward on the Leafs, that's a pretty good 2-way forward core. So calling Nylander the worst, ok, he's up against some pretty strong candidates so yeah, not news calling him the worst defensively.

    It's a serious question, who's the worst top 3 defensive forwards in the "top 9" players? Heck even add Par and GOAT, they're not bad defensively.

    Well, seems the rest of the team decided to take the pressure of Willy but turning in an all around shit effort. Seriously. Gardiner? That was a joke effort for a #2/3 D. He was man handled. 13 shot effort for the team into the 3rd period? Absolute joke of a non effort night. Time to make a move cause this is turning into the same movie we saw last year. Fool me once! Fool me twice?

    Gardiner has always been an embarrassment... can't wait till he's gone.

    Nylander - now there's a joke.

    1. Gardiner getting booed is F&*KING ridiculous. One way to make it snowball for a guy like Gardiner is making him less confident. Booing your own team is low, and anyone who did that last night is an idiot in my books. I may get what was happening years ago (pre-shanahan) but that was years and years of poor play by management. But booing one player...come on.

    2.Gardiner is what he is. It seems like people expect Rielly.

    3. Gardiner was bad, but the whole team was. Why did no one boo Kardi if you're booing Gardiner? He was completely stripped by Rantanen for their 3rd goal. He's been bad recently. Gardiner at least tried to tie the man up. It's almost like it's cool to boo Gardiner and just give others a pass.

    4. Gardiner was almost in tears after the game when being told by reports that his team was sticking up for him and they were behind him. Kinda let in the glimpse of pressure that Gardiner seems to be constantly under and he knows when he's bad, even without the booing, but definitely took him back when being told the team was behind him.

    5. On the goal where Dermott was on his belly behind the net after sliding, then it swung to Soderberg in the slot off to the side, he was Nylander's, or the center's guy right there. Can't remember who was there, but it was like "dead controller" movement to cover him, and when the pass happened, they finally moved to cover CS. It's small things like that TBL don't make, and why they're in 1st. Toronto doesn't need a massive change, it's just small dumb mistakes right now.

    Matthews has one goal in his past eleven games.

    Does anyone think this guy is carrying an injury?

    Last 7 minutes was the Andersen show.

    I still don't get why people boo specific players on their own team, but to hear Gardiner getting booed in Tampa by Leaf "fans" did give me a chuckle, then I felt bad. Gardiner was prolly happy he was leaving Toronto to get away from that stuff.

    He played pretty well last night, couple of plays were 50/50 pucks where if he was on the losing end of the 50%, people would have jumped on the ice to kill him. Glad to see his confidence hasn't shifted to where he picks the safe, non-right play.

    Can't wait until he scores in the playoffs.

    I saw a tweet this morning from someone at the game (a Leaf fan) claiming the booing generally came from Bolts fans.

    Kind of hard to tell though when both teams have damn near the exact same coloured jerseys, which I still can't believe the NHL allowed. Hurts my brain.

    That's pretty funny then. Shows that Tampa fans know what's up in the NHL.
