I don't think they are going to crash (barring injury). I have no idea how they'll do in the playoffs.

My point is that it takes time for perceptions to change. A surprising first 1/2 of the season isn't enough to convince people. There are tons of people saying the Isles are overachieving. It doesn't matter if they are right or not if that's what people think.

This was my understanding. Toronto is also a very clean city. Maybe there's a correlation.

No way. Taxation is theft, John. Everyone knows that. The last people you want to give money to are the ones who provide you with essential services.

Toronto has the highest tax rate of any NHL market. If he signs the same contract on literally any other team he would take home more money.
- BINGO!


This was why I got such a kick out of all the Articles posted on TSN and NHL that had Tavares making almost $7 mill more by signing anywhere else but NY. It was complete horse poop and I called it out many times everywhere it was written. JT cost himself money signing there b/c at the end of his 7 years there is no friggin shot he is getting and 8th year for $11 mill that he would have gotten on the Island.

That and I am sure if he said to the Isles.. make it 12 mill and I will sign.. it would have gotten done.

They’re playing a game that looks like will translate well to playoff hockey whether it will or not remains to be seen but I’m excited to hopefully find out👍

Remember going to one when I was 14 and a pimp brought walked into the arena with a couple hookers and started propositioning people in the stands.

Guys were begging their dads for their allowance.

OK, maybe I should have said "was" inasmuch as I haven't been to Toronto in decades. But again, compared to most U.S. cities of comparable size, I'd be surprised if it's not cleaner still.

Let's hope so. They're playing a very good defensive system right now and Trotz plans for each game individually. Looking to take away certain things from opponents. Like the drop pass Toronto always uses or taking away a teams speed by clogging the neutral zone. Everything is clicking right now. We'll see if they can sustain it.
