they could handle anyone from the assmutual division imo

I will say it again and again, my concerns with the leafs are defence, goaltending, and mental fortitude (the ability to focus on and execute solutions when in the face of uncertainty or adversity).

Are they ready to exercise those demons? We shall see.

their team has changed so much over the years. i think like half the players on the team are new this year.

my main concern is that there are still like 5 better teams lol. they have a shot at a cup but with a season like this who knows, even montreal could fluke a finals appearance or something if price went on a run and they got players back.

Looking good for a Canadian team. Just wait until they play one of the best teams from the other divisions.

Not this year. The leafs have proven that they can beat any of the lowly Canadian teams. They are by far the best team in the North. That’s a given. But if they cruise through rounds 1 and 2 (as they should) and then falter as soon as they meet an American team then I would say that’s no different than a first round exit IMO.

It’s cup final or bust for the leafs as they will not get a better chance at winning it all than this season.

Not sure I see your logic here. Leafs added some decent grit to a team that is stacked offensively. Campbell has gone 17-2-2 (not bad). If they would lose to a team like Tampa, with whom they match up ok against, how would you equate that (apart from a Canuck Leaf-hate bias) to a first round loss? And saying a team loaded with young stars not even in their prime will not have other opportunities for playoff success also shows some bias IMO. Winning a cup takes some luck as well. A key injury can be the end of good playoff run.

in fairness, if anyone knows anything about weak mental fortitude, it's a Canucks fan. Their team was one of the worst choking teams in NHL history.

the leafs have been chocking since 1967. And then there is the 2012-13 leafs.

Remember? Up 4-1 in Game 7 with a little over nine minutes left in the third period. The leafs were on their way to the second round, until they weren't. The Bruins scored three goals in the last nine minutes of the third period (including giving up two of those goals in the last 90 seconds) and forced the game to overtime, and then the inevitable happened.

But this year will be different right?

Keep riding the old 67 gravy train. Canucks have been in the league since 70 and have won zero cups. But they did pick up Jake Virtanen ahead of Pastrnak, Ehlers and Nylander in 2014.

you see their salute to the fans after yesterday's Leaf game? It was sort of odd, saluting the stands when the fans aren't allowed in this year. Then I thought to myself, maybe it's not really different than any other year.
