I don't know about the rest of my fellow Leafs fans here but I suddenly have a lot of work to do. I don't think I'll be able to post in here until at least Thursday, but that could get extended even further. Such unfortunate timing!

Yes. Very busy schedule.

The rightfully labelled cheap owner doesn't want to move the team there out of any altruistic purposes, but only because he thinks he can make more money off the suckers who support his Sens.

The article you posted illustrates this pretty clearly - if the proposal his group backs doesn't get chosen, he won't let the Sens play there.

Boy, you're way out of the loop aren't you.

His group has already been chosen, almost a year ago.

Oh did the leafs win tonight ............ heard they played vs a Back Up goaltender, so should be a cake walk?



Oh, and should the Senators be worried about the Lightning?

Look if you guys are tired about talking hockey, I am more than happy to lead a discussion on poverty and the increase in deaths of despair (drugs, alcohol and suicide).

I am entirely confident that this is the year that Leaf fans will avoid season ending despair. They are going into the playoffs and they will play a very strong first round. I feel good feelings for Leaf fans.

I am out of the loop, sorry, I don't follow what happens in small towns that closely.

Leafs came out tired after playing the night before, vs a rested team. No shocker for any Leafs fans.

And yes, Ottawa is still within reach of Tampa, and still sucks. I don't know if Sens fans should be worried. Their team can only benefit from having a shot in the lottery.

So the team that has a ton of young rookies, were tired eh.

Thought one of you leaf fans said that fatigue was not a factor for such a young team ............ whatever.




We can keep this "Tampa catching" possibility alive, if you wish...... but both Ontario teams just need a ROW, or a point or two, each to end the Lightning's PO hopes ...... and I believe both Ontario teams have enough left in the tank to do just that .......... and if you agree, we can forget about Tampa until next season.

Right now we should be talking about first round match ups, and who ends up facing the Capitals.

It's true that Tampa's chances aren't great, which is a shame, as they're a clearly better team than the Sens, even in their injured state, but c'est la vie. That being said, if any team has a shot at allowing the Lightning in, it is the Sens.

And no, I never said fatigue wouldn't be an issue for a young team. Pretty sure the Leafs have a lousy record on the back-half of back-to-backs.

They're clearly better than the leafs too then, by using your logic ........... the leafs are sitting 8th in the conference and 4th in the Division, while Ottawa is in 6th in the Conference and 2nd in the Division.

Yes, I believe that a healthy Tampa team is better than the Leafs.

There isn't a playoff team worse than the Sens, however.

Yes there most certainly is ......... the leafs, who sit in the 8th seed, 2nd WC spot.

If they face the Caps in the first round, it's not going to be close.

I think Leafs are bad match for anyone in the first round. Young teams don't know that they are not supposed to win. I think the Leafs would play Washington touch despite the outcome of last night.

If the Leafs get the Caps in the first round, it'll be over in 5 games me thinks... The Leafs just aren't ready yet... Now an Ottawa or Boston first round match up would be awesome and could see the young Leafs advance to the second round to face the Rangers after they dump Montreal... heh

They lost all three games vs Washington this season 4-2, 6-5 & 4 -1

I would not bet any money on the leafs if they faced Washington in the first round ........ they'd have about a 10% chance of winning that series.

A leafs vs Boston or Ottawa, would be about 50-50 chance for all teams involved, which ever the match up is.

Would boil down to something like hot goal tending, injured key player or something that can't really be planned for.

Both Boston and Ottawa want two points tomorrow, as it would almost ensure the winner will finish in 2nd, or 3rd at the worst, and avoid Washington


the leafs need to take care of Tampa, as their next two games will almost be "must wins" if they're trying to avoid Washington, if they don't manage to gain any points tomorrow.
