Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

The title can be changed. There's a lot of Leafs fans here and they should be able to celebrate making the playoffs.....for now. 9 years out is a long time for any team and I say that not as shot at the team but as a relief for their fans to finally be there.

Props to the Isles, too. Tavares has jumped up a tier with the season he's put together. Just stay the heck out of the 8th seed because I don't want the Pens to see them. My childhood was traumatized by the Healy, Volek, Flatley, Dalgarno, Kasparaitis, et al team of 1993.

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

Not a lot this year since so many teams were in it for so long but in a regular 82 game season a lot of TANKING goes on. There really isn't that much of a difference between a lot of the non-playoffs teams as far as formidable puzzle pieces and skill level, some just want that top pick more than others.

Lets not forget that Florida was in the playoffs last year now they are the worst team in the league? Just doesn't add up. They got off to a bad start and they've been packing it in for a while now. Do you think they are lose there last 7 bad? I don't. They are trying to come last. Really don't think the NHL should continue to reward tanking.



Have you seen their line-up? They have been hampered with injuries all year, it doesn't surprise me one bit they are sitting dead last.

This was their line-up from when they played the Pens on the 13th:

Jonathan Huberdeau - Shawn Matthias - Jack Skille
Tomas Fleischmann - Marcel Goc - Tomas Kopecky
Scottie Upshall - Nick Bjugstad - Greg Rallo
George Parros - Drew Shore - Quinton Howden

Brian Campbell - Mike Weaver
Filip Kuba - Erik Gudbranson
T.J. Brennan - Dmitry Kulikov

Markstrom

Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

We got lucky last year anyway with all of those OT Losses points anyway, but yeah there were injuries up the ass this year. No tanking what so ever. Clemmy and Theo got exposed as always, and Markstrom wasn't going to save us midyear. The injuries were cruel. The one shining light? JOHNNY HOCKEY. That's Jonathan Huberdeau to most. He kept me watching even when it was evident we weren't going anyway. Markstrom? Ehhh. I'm going to keep giving him the benefit of the doubt until he's on a contending team. Dude is just a freak.

Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

Injuries are one thing, teams play through injuries all the time. The Sens have been missing there two best players pretty much all year but have remained competitive a lot of the time/been great at other times. Plus their starting goalie missed a lot of time and other key pieces missing time as well. Has anyone looked at some of the lineups the Sens have put out there? They have been pretty bad.

Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

Caps clinch #3 and Islanders clinch a playoff berth. Happy for the Isles fans. That's a team to avoid in Round 1.

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

Bruins and Habs choking hard lol. Weird that they are both falling on their faces down the stretch. It's weird looking at all these possible playoff matchups for the Leafs when they still COULd win the division. Not super likely obviously but it's not like Boston or Montreal really seem to want to win it right now.

Re: NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE LEAFS EXCEPT JM

In a regular 82 game season, Montreal and Boston would be going through their mid-season struggle in January instead of right before the playoffs.

Good signs are that the Habs played really well after the 1st period last night, but it's also looking like Therrien is resting certain guys and trying to keep something in the tank for the playoffs with the amount he's playing the bottom nine and playing Yannick Weber on the penalty kill for example. A Montreal-Toronto first round looks inevitable at this point unless the Islanders get into the 5th spot, or Boston and Montreal continue to slide, Toronto wins the division and Boston-Montreal meet in the first round at 4-5.
