GFWE Game #12 Predictions and Other Bits


    The Leafs face up against their old bench boss Pat Quinn tonight hoping to get back on a winning streak of some sort.  The big lineup change seems to be a demotion for Grabovski to the fourth line.  Rickard Wallin benefits from Mikhail’s demotion with a undeserved look on the second line.

    In other news, Team Canada has been selected for the upcoming Olympics.  Omissions include Mike Green, Jay Bouwmeester and Dion Phaneuf on defense.  Up front, the absence of Vincent Lecavalier is not as surprising as that of his teammate Martin St. Louis.  Faithful Canadian “heart and soul” types Shane Doan and Ryan Smyth were also left off in favour of players such as Patrice Bergeron.

    Tomas Kaberle, Niklas Hagman, Jonas Gustavsson, and Mikhail Grabovski are the current Leafs on their countries’ Olympic rosters.  Phil Kessel and Mike Komisarek will likely boost the total to 6 with expected inclusions on the American squad.
