please god continue to be bad but not bad enough

Lets not pretend they are trying to make the playoffs. McKenzie reported this week that they will be trading everyone tradeable at the deadline regardless of where they are in the standings. Babcock has been told his job is to get the most out of the players to up their value.

Somehow, I don't feel like losing PAP, Grabner, and whatever other UFAs will be traded, and replacing them with the likes of Nylander, Brown, Kapanen, etc, will hurt the Leafs.


Lets be honest here... Lupul/Phaneuf/Bozak aren't going anywhere. Very rare multi-year deals get traded at the deadline

It's definitely possible this is a hot-streak. Possession numbers haven't been great lately, but goaltending from Reimer has been great. His performance is a big reason for the Leaf's record of late.

They have very little talent but all it'll take is for them to get decent goaltending for them to stick around where they are now. There are so many bad teams in the league. The difference between 20th and 30th is almost nothing.

The Sens are a mess, not even trolling. What are they even building towards at this point.

This cannot be overstated. Kinda like the flyers. They seem to think they are contenders so they make bad signings or trade away younger players to keeo anderson

If he stays healthy, and produces well, I can see that in the offseason. But big contracts rarely move on trade deadline day.

the leafs are old this year. they signed a bunch of geezers so they can try to turn them into assets at the trade deadline. by doing that they are giving their prospects time to develop away from this mess as well, something they've failed to do for eternity.

I guess this is as good an explanation as any as to why they're struggling to win as many games as they lose.

Yep, just like we used our old core to facilitate the exact same thing.There is a bit of gap right now ,with so many graduated players up with the big club.That our farm team is pretty depleted,as most of our best youth is still in junior

21st overall in ROWs

Tied for 7th overall in Points

The "struggling " is in their defensive zone, and will need to improve.

However, all things considered, in a better situation than the leafs.

the leafs were winning games with RC in similar fashion. Were able to sit in a playoff spot for while with lots of loser points and not many ROW..getting outshot every game..but that stuff comes crashing down.
