Quinn demotes Hoglund

Barring injuries, Roberts will play on Leafs' top line
Paul Hunter
Sports Reporter


HANS DERYK/ TORONTO STAR
MOVING DOWN: Tonight, Jonas Hoglund may find himself playing with Tie Domi instead of Leafs star Mats Sundin.
Maple Leafs coach Pat Quinn may have tipped his hand on his post-season line combinations yesterday. It just depends on Robert Reichel's knee, Shayne Corson's hip, Gary Roberts' ribs, Mikael Renberg's hamstring ...

And you can add a new injury to Toronto's medical glossary — Jonas Hoglund's pride.

While there are never any absolutes at this time of year, in the Leafs' last full practice before opening their playoff series against the Islanders tonight, it appears Quinn has finally dropped Hoglund from the left side of Mats Sundin's line. In his place was Roberts, who is hoping to return to the lineup after missing the final 10 regular-season games with a torn muscle just below his rib cage.

"There are still a lot of things that could change,'' cautioned Quinn. "I don't have all the (medical) clearances yet.''

The Leafs will indeed ice a doctored lineup tonight but yesterday's line rushes offered a substantial hint as to how Quinn will open against the Isles.

After that remodelled No.1 line of Sundin between Roberts and Renberg, Quinn had Travis Green between Darcy Tucker and Alexander Mogilny; Corson flanked by Garry Valk and Paul Healey; then a fourth unit of Alyn McCauley centring Hoglund and Tie Domi. Reichel skated but with the scrubs.

Add a few grains of salt and you have how Toronto will look at the forward positions.

While Roberts said the final decision on whether he can play tonight won't be made until the pre-game skate, it's clear Quinn is hoping the power and grit of two big wingers will complement Sundin's artistry. The Toronto captain is likely to be the target of intense checking from New York's Mike Peca.

"At playoff time you like to see the big guys around (Sundin) because during the season it's like playing rugby some nights with what the opposition is allowed to do to Mats,'' said Quinn.

"If we have hockey rules and big guys with him maybe he'll get some more room."

While Roberts is certainly a more physical presence than Hoglund on Sundin's flank he also has more potential to cash in on the captain's playmaking. It's been a frustrating season for Hoglund who could produce only 13 goals despite spending the bulk of the year on the top unit. Hoglund finished with 199 shots, the second highest total on the squad, but he was seventh in goals.

Roberts, though, wouldn't commit to suiting up tonight.

"You want to be part of it but the long-range plan is to be around here in June. I don't want to risk it too early and not be able to help the team down the stretch. I think I need to be 100 per cent to play and hopefully that'll be the case come game time,'' he said. "It's going to be (decided by) whether or not I can play without tearing it open again. That's what I'm trying to avoid."

If Reichel can dress — and he was secretive about his health after testing his sprained knee at practice — that would also cause some tinkering.

Sundin was typically nonplussed about what wingers he might have beside him tonight.

"It shouldn't be a problem, especially at this time of year. I think everyone is so excited to play, who is going to play with who is such a minor thing at this point,'' he said.

Renberg, who played with Sundin at the end of the regular season after being bounced from that top line previously, was clearly pleased that he'll likely start the playoffs there.

"It's great to play with Mats. He's our best player. He's a superstar in the league,'' said Renberg. " But for me to play with (Reichel's) line or (Green's) line is just as good with me. I don't really care who I play with. I think I can play with anyone but it's great to play with him for sure.

For shit sakes women...don't post things like that....It makes me VERY angry, that non-cheering LEAF fans will be in attendance. :(

It's like your shunned for cheering when they score a goal, one guy in a suit asked me not to stand up when they scored cause he couldn't see.....give me a fukken break, stand up and cheer then, what the hell are you doing here? :mad:

Other then that GO LEAFS GO

like those line combos if everyone can get healthy.

I must remember to bring a couple of magazines or crossword puzzles or something. Don't want to completely waste my time while I'm there.

*ouch*
okay, but at least i don't go to raptors games and then sit there not cheering - discussion is discussion, but going to the game is serious business.

besides, my last 'i don't care much about basketball' comment was followed by '...but what a great game last night!! i was standing up cheering when mo pete slammed it with 2 minutes left'. :)

So, I'm walking around downtown this morning in one of my Leafs jerseys, and it always amazes me at playoff time how strangers will just stop and talk to me.

I wish people were as friendly all the time. I had probably 5 conversations from Yonge to Bathurst today. Mind you, they were just about hockey, but it feels good.

Val: You suck ass. We all hate you. But only for two and a half hours on Saturday.. unless of course you have one of those tickets for me, then I'll love you forever. :D

BBB.

I mean that it the bitterest way possible.

The Leafs ARE GOING TO KICK ASS! :D

word (rosey)

why even bother going? Imagine the joy she could bring to some kids who would TOTALLY be indebted to her for the rest of her life if she let them go instead, or took them along! Someone did that for me when I was a youngen, and I still thank him for it every time I see him. Or she could give them to a couple of 25?(rosey) and 27(preroller) year old kids who would prolly be eternal slaves to DIWC....forever!

I remember I sat in the platinums last year, beside 2 suits no less. I have nothing against suits and all, but they gave me bad looks everytime I cheer...then one asks if I could keep it down whilst he's on the "cell phone"

THERE ARE 18,000 PEOPLE CHEERING YOU FUCKTARD YUPPIE!

I understand business is business, but come on! Geez, turn off the phone and enjoy the game.

Oh yeah, go leafs go

TIMMAH!-------> still waiting for Ken Baumgartner to come back and beat Yashin up.

Haha I would, but it's up to my best friend, and I'm pretty sure he's already picked the other two lucky people. )

As for people cheering, I certainly won't stop them or ask them to sit down, I really couldn't care less if I see the game ;) It should be fun to go and see what it's all about tho, so I'm pretty excited.

Injured Corson ready for hurting Yashin

`I will follow him, follow him,

Follow him wherever he may go;

There isn't an ocean too deep, a mountain so high it can keep,

Keep me away, away from — '

You know who.

That could well be Shayne Corson's theme song for the first round of the playoffs. If, in fact, he suits up tonight against the New York Islanders. And if Pat Quinn once again assigns Corson to the job of shadowing Alexei Yashin.

That aforementioned song, by the way, was not performed by The Shirelles, as memory mis-served, but rather one Little Peggy March. Which is a shame, because then we could call the putative checking troika Corson was practising with yesterday — yoked to Paul Healy and Garry Valk — The Shirelle Line. And wouldn't they just love that?

Yes!
Yashin....different team same shit :D

BWAHAHAHA i'm still 24, but i will be in Bruce Pennisula National Park listening to the game on a radio while getting blasted and searing steaks over an open fire. :D

yeah baby! best of both worlds.

then again, slave to DIWC....that'd be okay - i'd do that for a lot less than leaf tickets ;) (if i were single)
