The top competition; who plays against them? That’s been the
question that materialized after Zetterberg ran over the Leafs on the weekend.
The Leafs did better at controlling John Tavares on Tuesday night. While he did
score, it was on the powerplay and holding him to just 3 shots in the game is
somewhat of a victory.
Alas, if only there was a community of people who follow the Leafs religiously who could connect the dots and determine the best way of handling other teams top players.

About 10 minutes into this game I thought it would be one of those nights for the boys in blue. The Leafs were completely out-chanced and out-played in every zone and every facet of play. It looked like a typical Leafs period. But hockey's a funny game. Things change quickly.

Tonight we have a matchup between two teams who have long been basement dwellers in the league. One of the two teams has been drafting well and was finally ready to make significant moves to push for a playoff spot this season, the other is the Leafs.
We also get our first look at Nikolai Kulemin as the opposition tonight (unfortunately without his loveably crazy BFF), and we can assume he wants to remind Carlyle and Nonis that they shouldn’t have let him go.

Well this is a bit of a surprise, but it's funny that this move comes at a time when Kadri trade rumors have been emerging, and there's also coverage of Tavares and Kadri during their London days ahead of tonight's matchup between the Leafs and Isles.
