The scoreboard that has the team full of rookies you suggested would be dead last, in a divisional seed?
- prock

Leafs have comfortably slipped into last place in the Atlantic Division and Tweedledee and Tweedledumb are still fascinated by the impending rush they are about to make to the head of the class.

Problem with scoreboards is that they measure outcomes. The statistics that really matter suggest that the premature celebration among blue and white kool aid drinkers has been somewhat misguided. We are only a few days away from Christmas and it appears that the Leafs have successfully positioned themselves to compete for another top draft pick.

I think you're struggling with it. Like when you tried to say it was a sad time for a rookie race for Leaf fans. Also, see above..speaking of premature...Maybe tweedletwit should stfu?

Resentment is a bitter thing. The word comes from the french verb ressentir meaning to feel (again). Resentment eats away at you and you allow your anger and hostility to dominate all your other feelings. Sometimes it comes with an overwhelming sense of self pity or frustration, especially when you feel that you are not being heard or listened to. You do seem to be unusually discouraged lately, even though the Leafs are playing nice hockey. Is there something in particular that has upset you?.

Oh... it's December already?

I'm just quoting you Spatso. You seem shaken. And stirred. Does it make you angry to be so wrong in your predictions? Stages spatso. Stages. Don't make anger your stage 3.

Take a deep breath. Your emotions are causing you typos.

Leafs are going nowhere, Sens believe they will contend. The only thing that matters is when we start looking at the scoreboard for real in about 10 weeks.

I see the Leaf summer hot air show has been in overdrive all day.

Did you check the standings from the end of the season? Are the Leafs still in last place?

But, Leaf fans are having a very strong summer run. The consensus opinion is that the Leafs are the big summer winners. It is so much better when you get to play without the scoreboard.

Understanding and observing projection is relatively simple. When someone is adamant about wanting another person to own a feeling or a behaviour, merely observe the pattern. If, for example, a person is strongly polarized in their views on homosexuality and are intent on identifying people with unresolved sexual identity issues it is likely a statement about their own uncertainty or lack of comfort with their own sexual self. So, for example, the preacher who is always lashing out about the evils of same sex marriage may, in fact, regularly act out (escape) in same sex encounters. His weekly rants (sermons) can be understood as being a reflection of a deeply embedded rejection of his own sexual self.

Now, so tell us again, about all these angry Sens fans. And, perhaps, you might also like to share with us your psycho sexual history in order that we can better understand the underlying sentiment behind your hostile reactions to others.

Possibly.

Check this out:

Way too rich, the irony only gets better after some reflection.

The Leafs were a last place team. The Leafs are a last place team.

Matthews is not McDavid or Eichal or perhaps, even Laine or Puljujarvi. Yet Leaf fans have created this huge expectation around a kid that was not nearly the force of the Finns on the big stages of international hockey last year.

Not sure why the Leafs have delayed in signing him to a contract. Perhaps they think he is going to need some AHL development time. Nobody is hoping against Matthews, he should be a good player. But, there is absolutely nothing in his track record that suggests he will be an impact player in the NHL next year. Perhaps, there is a fatal flaw in the Leaf charism. If Matthews is put out head to head against veteran NHL centres every night and fans expect him to outperform all comers it is going to be a very long and disappointing winter for the blue and white.

I understand the importance of the summer season for Leaf fans. It is an opportunity to renew hope and create a bond with the team in the belief that next year will see the Leafs finally triumph. It is the Oiler model of a few years ago that had Yakupov (like Matthews, an older profile draft pick) dominating scoring in future NHL seasons or RNH being the slickest centre to come along in years.

Always keep in mind the notion that "we are different," is something that is really well understood. We know Matthews is not McDavid, not even close. We want to believe that he is better than Yakupov. Likely he is in the same range as RNH, but he will likely struggle to produce numbers as good as RNH got in his rookie year (18 goals, 34 assists in 64 games).

No, don't doubt me. I like Matthews, he is a #1 centre and an important addition. But, Laine is the scorer and after the fact there is a lot more buzz about the impact of Laine next year. I believe that if the #1 pick was not being hyped by the Toronto Sports Network that Laine would have been the number one pick.

I don't disagree. I would take Matthews and have said that from the beginning. My comments have more to do with temperament and the Leaf fans reaction to what is likely going to be their worse seasons in franchise history. I think most fans will be fine as long as they see a blueprint for growth. But, if Laine lights it up, some will become very unhappy and bitter.

Right! 10 years of futility and headed for another last place finish. Leafs are about where Edmonton was five years ago at this time. No reason to think path is any different for Leafs.
