Great question.

Rebuilding takes a few years. Teams learn to win by building a winning culture. Need to be careful not to push kids into having to win. Big difference in playing without pressure and playing to meet heavy expectations.

You're jealousy is so ridiculous. You want the leafs to fail so badly.

Last year you said the leafs young players weren't going to make a difference, they were worse than the year before when they finished last. Now you're saying they're winning too quickly.

You're (frank)ed in the head

I don't think you can plot a trajectory to success like that. Toronto's rebuild isn't done, but they handled their young kids appropriately in my opinion. Some made the team out of the gate, others waited.

Here we go again. Let's ignore scoreboard and results.

The results were that the Sens were the only team after 82 games to have more goals given up than scored to make the playoffs. Who is ignoring results?

Phanuef to dallas is a possibility


Nil will bend the sends over and go no lube. At least he used lube with the spezza trade.

Actually learning to win is different than winning. Washington Capitals are a prime example of a team that is loaded with talent at all the key positions but they have never learned how to win when the winning gets tough.

Some, including me, would say that the early years were too easy for their young players (Ovechkin primarily) and they never learned how much sacrifice was needed for true success. Lots of teams with great skill have missed living up to their full potential because they never learned how to win when it matters.

Boy did not mean to spook you so badly.

Reranking of Drafted NHL prospects is pretty common practice by most publications.

It is the way you assess prospect depth.

Sens have 4 top prospects. Leafs 0. Deal with it.

Sorry it is what it is.

Ottawa has a really strong prospect pool.

That is a reality.

The Leafs don't have much talent left in their prospect pool as they have moved prospects quickly into their system. We will see if Leafs pay a price for their lack of patience.

I was a huge supporter of dealing Spezza and I think this year's run to the ECF is a direct result of making that move. Ottawa had to become a better defensive team and they had to be built around Karlsson and that was not going to happen as long as Spezza remained as the Captain. I liked Spezza as a person, he was great in the community but he was never the captain and leader that Karlsson has become for us.
