Battle of Ontario

I can't believe they lost that game.... I mean.... wow. The Sens. COMEON!!! On the second night of a back to back, after they get shutout by the Jets at home, they walk into the ACC, kick a puck in, Nick Foligno goes low on Dion Phaneuf. The Battle of Ontario is back on.

The good news is that the last time the Leafs and Sens were playing meaningful games, the Sens dominated in the regular season, but we always got em in the playoffs. Let's hope that history is repeating itself.

You can't convince me that Ottawa is good. Yes the Walrus is a good coach, god knows I'd back check for that moustache. But that doesn't change the fact that the Sens are just no fucking good at hockey!

I won't be surprised if Burke pulls the trigger before I wake up tomorrow, he's probably calling Anaheim threating to rent a barn unless Ryan Getzlaf is on a plane to Toronto.

Why is Matthew Lombardi playing over Nazem Kadri? Sure he's got great wheels but that's about it. Hell I'd rathar see Matt Frattin out there, either way! What I saw tonight, Lombardi did a good job skating with the puck, but took shots from far out, with little to no traffic often resulting in the play going the other way, with his speed he has oppourtunites to make plays, and I know he scored but that was a brutal goal that just doesn't go in very often in the NHL.

That loss really sucks, don't blame James Reimer, hopefully he gets a few starts, this team just needs to get better, that game was a should win.

Other trade targets: I wouldn't mind if Travis Moen came to town, good bottom 4/5 player with some size and toughness.

Tim Gleason would be nice, especially if we end up dealing Luke Schenn, which I'm in favour of, if of course, the value is there. I wouldn't be upset if Mike Komisarek never suited up in the Blue and White again. Not that I think he's that terrible but there are a lot of other guys that can do a better job out there for a lot less than 4.5.

Would Carolina part ways with Eric Staal? That'd be great, obviously not cheap, I don't even know what it would take or if Carolina would even consider dealing him.

Obviously JVR or Bobby Ryan would be awesome but I'm not sure what the likeyhood on either of them is.

Other trade candidates? Who would you like to see?
