The Trouble with Toronto

Once again the Toronto Maple Leafs have screwed their fans over at the end of the season.  The team struggles throughout the year, but then at the trade deadline wins a few games to give Leaf Nation hope, and then lose at the end to finish a few points back of a playoff spot.

 They miss out on a NHL lottery pick, and end up with a decent, but not great player, that sits in the system for years and offers no real benefit or solution.  They also never make any big deadline deals as they either feel they are in a position to make a run, or like this year cannot trade anyone worth while due to no-trade clauses. 

I personally hate the Leafs, but am starting to feel sorry for their fans who get their hopes up every year, only to have them crushed just as fast.

  1. JFJ killed the Leafs by trading away their future for “now” players, giving a number of players NTCs, without any regard to the team or it’s fans. Plain and simple.

    It was a risky move that is going to be haunting them for years to come.

  2. Yeah, I agree. NTC to that many players was such a poor move by management. They are a team that will be subpar for years to come.
    I used to really enjoy the sabres/leafs rivalry of the late 90’s early 2000’s, but now when they play it’s so one-sided for the sabres.
    Maybe one day they will get there act together.
