Fair enough. I don't think I've ever really felt like Leafs fan had any influence on me. Oilers fans haven't either, but I have zero respect for the way they operate their organization and I want them to fail because I think they deserve it.

Good to see them get the equalizer here

#### Tampa
1. It was the right call
2. Arm went up before the goal on an obvious pick play to setup a scoring chance
3. No, #### Toronto

Amazing they didn't get one there. What a tonne of pressure for an extended time. Great game.

Leafs extremely unlucky in this period. Reminds me of the Flames trying to score on Oettinger.

I mean, I think it’s fair we can all agree we want the Leafs, Oilers and Lightning to have no success. Just in different orders of preference.

I was thinking the same thing during the last 5 minutes.

Toffoli and/or Jarnkrok scoring tomorrow confirmed

Paul tonight and Giroux last night proving trade additions have been worthwhile

The reason a lot of us don’t like the Leaves is the incessant and excessive media focus on them. As one of the posters here likes to point out, the “T” in TSN stands for Toronto.

All Leafs in this period. Tampa just sitting back, and I'm guessing it's gonna backfire on them soon.

It's almost bound to happen. At the very least they'll take a tired penalty leading to more drama.

The idea of just treating it like an icing has been mentioned forever, but the wrinkle I'd add is a 'bonus' violation system kinda like basketball...maybe too complicated, but I'd give ~2 violations per period and each subsequent is a penalty (limit might be higher depending on how many things you include).

Violations:
- bad coaches challenge
- puck over glass
- "bad" icings - from behind the blue line with "no intended receiver"
- goalie freezing puck while he is completely outside his crease (or a player freezing it anywhere)

You could also work offsetting minors into this system, maybe a few other behaviours you want to discourage.

Irrational Oilers fans might move that line and/or Vegas simply accounts for the stupidity of Oiler fans
