It's amazing, I've been hearing leaf fans predicting "next year the leafs will .............." for almost 50 years now.


leaf fans can't quite live in the present, they talk about cups won 50 years ago, when teams only had to win two rounds in the playoffs, like they were alive then.

The "present" has sucked for a long time now, and leaf fans have always pointed to the future cups that the leafs will win ................. I guess that's how most of you cope through the longest Stanley Cup win or even a finals appearance, drought.

We could talk about the present if Dopps would prefer.

Presently, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the best hockey team in Ontario.

Whereas senaturds fans are living in the present, with all their current cups?
- prock




Senator Fans have been to the Stanley Cup Finals, in their lifetimes, just 10 years ago.

Crapple laffs fans, the majority of them, were not even around 50 years ago, so please tell us how you've enjoyed those 8 playoff games over the past 12 seasons?

Did you look at the final standings in the Atlantic Division ................. or did you find some fancy boy stats that you spin with your biased warped logic?

not one Leafs fan would swap organizations top to bottom with the Sens.

EVERY Sens fan would... or they are (frank)ing stupid.

Since I am in a giving mood, I'll give you more credit than you deserve and suggest you would be the first Sens fan to line up for that trade.

Meh

The standings tell me that a veteran team that fancies themselves contenders finished 3 points over a team one seaosn removed form dead last, and icing 6-8 rookies at any given time.

Is there anyone, including you, who would rather have the Sens roster/management/coaching/prospects/ownership over the Leafs?

Common sense tells me that the team the Leafs started the year with is not the same as the one they ended the year with.

Common sense tells me that the team the senaturds started the year with is not the same as the one they ended the year with.

Do you think the Leafs improved or declined over the course of the season. How about the senaturds?

This is very clearly a tale of two teams going in opposite directions.

I thought I responded to something calling the lower team in the standings the better team.

You could see how maybe I wouldn't take that as an absolute.


On a side note, I sure see a bunch of chest puffing going on from one fan base only.

Remember when the Avs drafted a rookie sensation and promptly made the playoffs with their crew of young studs?

Fire away.

A lot of the chest puffing you see is in response to the bumholes in the Sens fan base who filled this blog with their idiocy. The Leafs this year proved them way way way off base.

It also comes from being trolled and laughed at by every other fan base here. So when things look brighter... yeah, some people are getting a little pay back.

I am sure most of us, including Dopps and Spatso are pretty good guys in real life. On these boards, everyone lets a little bit of their bumhole side out

... it could go south like it did in Colorado. In fact, I have mentioned on our boards a few times that we may regress a bit next year. This year was an awful huge step. Who knows if it is sustainable?

Going forward over the next few years, I would really need to know what went wrong in Colorado. I don't know enough to comment. I can only guess that there is something seriously wrong with the culture and the "room" there?

Let's say you started hearing it when you were 6 (being nice here.) The last cup as we all know was 67. SO you've been hearing it since 67 (add on your 6) and that makes at best a 61 birth year.

You cannot be trolling Maple Craps fans on the Internet at the age of 56.

And Marner is the next Sam Gagner and Matthews is RNH. Yeah the Leafs have had such bad luck running into worst case scenarios lately. It is so unfortunate. It sucks that they are the next avs now too.

That's actually quite interesting. I assume it's probably "what we're brought up on", but I find the west so tedious to watch. Dump and chase to an extreme, never ending cycling game, neutral zone being clogged up. For me, and it's only me, the more run and gun east is far more aesthetically pleasing than watching Anaheim, St. Louis, Minnesota, Nashville etc.

Again, it must be just what we're used to

- walshyleafsfan



you're probably right, It could also be that I enjoy watching teams that I hate kick the poop out of each other. 2 series I could see getting fun are CBJ/PIT and ANA/CGY. For me, I enjoy a series where the teams actually despise each other.

Who said this?

I did read a couple of pages ago that they're one of only two teams from Canada with a small chance of winning the cup next season.

yeah? do honestly think there is anything Ottawa or Vancouver can realistically add to make themselves a contender? Winnipeg isn't going to jump from basement to cup competitor are they?

who else possibly could? toronto and Edmonton are really the only two that have most things sorted and could reasonably add the remaining pieces in one offseason. even then probably not. it's a tall order.
