With all their personal changes due to getting beat up by the Devils last season, I doubt if they can keep up with the Oils. Trading speed for toughness most always equals plodders in my opinion.
Since the Leafs have been slow & have been playing with no committement so far along with the Oiler's speed and fast ice, oh-oh!!! Last Saturday's loss to Ottawa might be their, gulp, better game!
U could be quite safe tomorrow.
