    Ottawa... They’re a disaster organization and now Doug Wilson Is going to save them, possibly gift them a cup. They don’t deserve it!

    Imagine if they get picks 1&2 this year

    Make that 9 straight wins for the NYI with a shutout yesterday.

    Their GM lead the Leafs to an all-time 100 year franchise record just 2 years ago.

    The Lou Lam + Babcock GM/Coach combo had the Leafs at the top, both working together to deliver success.

    How did it come to this?

    Trotz is a good coach.

    Also it doesn't hurt that they played Winnipeg, Columbus, Arizona, Ottawa, and Phili in consecutive games. Not exactly the toughest competition.

    Islanders are like a better version of us - not much chance at a cup unless something big chances. For them, it's personnel, for us it's coaching and systems. Neither team will make much noise otherwise.

    For all the complaining about our contracts, that Isles team has some real anchors on it too, I definitely wouldn't switch positions with them.

    Agreed.

    The Isles play a great system and have the right bodies for it. They have veteran depth that has grit and can play a tough defensive game with just enough offensive game breakers to give them some goals up front.

    Goaltending is key but they also limit their chances.

    Ultimately their lack of top end talent depth will catch up to them in the playoffs.

    Because Lou bailed when he saw the cap clusterfack he was left with because of many poor signings, and trading 2nds for 4th liners....leaving the Leafs short come draft time.

    It's pretty easy if you look at it objectively. Which......you can't

    The worst part is they knew how bad an idea it was before they signed Marleau to 3 years

    That's just dumb

    Awesome game between Bruins and Pittsburgh.

    Bruins up 3-0 at one point and now 4-3 Pens.

    End of 2nd.

    The way the Penguins are the bruins from the 2nd period on is something the leafs should constantly on replay.

    They played with no fear and was constantly hard on the forecheck

    Another day another Bruins win. When I watch a team like that it's clear that the Leafs are not contenders , not even close

    The only good thing about them being so good and starting this hot so early is that we may finally avoid them in the 1st rd

    Still think we're too talented not to make the playoffs. But heck I'd take a WC2 spot if it means not going into TD Garden to start another playoff series.

    Only way I want anything to do with Boston is if we somehow get home ice. But even than I'm not holding my breath

    Brad Marchand has a 5 point night, he may end up with more points than McJesus this season.

    The way our systems are you will never see nights like this from our players often,

    just pass to the point, crash the net, get a deflection repeat. no real movement in the o zone with us like you see other top teams do by using all 5 guys to cycle the puck around the zone instead of just feeding the point and going to rebounds, whats the point of paying all our big guys money to have them play like robots

    unless the odd time we are on a rush chance, thats where you get to see our players' skills most. kinda sad really.

    This made me laugh. Bert do you actually believe level of competition would determine the Leafs' fate? they could play the worst team in the league and they would never win 9 in a row. It's just not in their DNA. That win streak is impressive for any team let alone the Isles.

    Pastrnak 29 points, Marchand with 28 points... in 14 games... it's crazy how good they've started out this year.
