That's just insecurity. Your satisfaction should be tied to the Leafs success; not others' pain
- PhillySportsGuy



It's both. You're over reacting. This is sports. I'm not wishing anyone to die or get hurt. I'm just hoping the other team (s) fail because it improves my teams chances of success. It also makes for a great humble pie recipe. You're acting like Leaf fans are the only fanbase to see sports as a rivalry and a competition between teams/fans and the trash talk that goes with. I don't get it.

A lottery is all about luck. Not skiLloyd or brilliance. But it doesn't start and end with Matthews. It's more than that. Like getting a good goalie. A good coach. Making very good trades. Thing guys like Marner and Matthews. Players like Brown and Zaitsev stepping up. Etc.

It's a whole shift in the organization. Matthews is just the centerpiece but by no means the sole reason for the turn around of the franchise.

All we're saying is that things have gone VERY right for the Leafs. They've caught almost every break.

What? No one has said that the Leafs rebuilding was a bad decision, it's been great actually. He's simply stating that there has been a good amount of luck with it as well. ARZ picking Strome over Marner and winning Matthews helped big time. Canucks being idiots as usual and picking Virtanen over Ehlers/Nylander helped as well.
- Nucker101

Absolutely luck has to do with everything sports. Datsyuk, Palat, Weber the list goes on and on.

You've been on HB long enough. I'm sure you can understand where Leafs fans are coming from. To say (not you) that Leafs fans haven't been trolled is an insane statement. This thread basically exists because of what Spatso (and Dopps to a lesser extent) have said over the passed 3 or 4 years. To have a couple of Philly fans (not you) come in and act like mediators is (frank)ing bizzare considering the circumstances.

Again, Spatso truly deserves all of this. You don't see any Leafs fans talk smack about Gord Wilson (Sens poster) for example. Leafs fans aren't really in Hawks, Flyers, Penguins, Sabres threads. I don't even think I've seen a single Leafs fan comment in the Rangers thread after last night's game.

This is all about Spats

Which is ridiculous and convenient. Some luck but also great decisions. Not sure what break they've caught other than Matthews.

For sure. The small moves to add quality depth is what separates the tank failures from the success stories. But still, the Leafs rebuild wouldn't look nearly as masterful and would be much slower if they had Strome and Puljujarvi instead of Matthews and Marner. Multiple Brown's and Zaitsev's don't move the needle as much as a Matthews or Marner.


They've made a lot of great moves to put themselves in a position where some luck would really help accelerate the rebuild. I get what you guys are saying though.

Thats ridiculous. Leafs could have taken Hanafin over Marner. You're just being silly now. The LEAFS took Marner because they knew him well. Hunter, who they hired, knewe him for years. Babcock wanted Hanafin. In the end it was the teams scouts who got their man and that's not luck.

Think about how much better the Sabres would be with McDavid. People would talk about how great they could be while the Oilers continue to be idiots.
