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.
