    What on Earth are you talking about? How are the Leafs taking advantage of covid and what did they do to "load up"?

    It is the season. Every team is attempting to win. It is the same as every other season.

    You may be right. Hard hitting and especially hard forechecking teams are what have given the Leafs the most trouble this season. But they haven't been playing "wide open". They've played a tight checking defensive game for the most part. As far as the competitiveness of the divisions...who knows?

    So no one else is trying to win or don't care that much? Is that really what you're saying?

    The broken record, calling everyone else, a broken record.

    Peg, if that’s the best you can come up with, it’s time to reevaluate your opinion lol. It’s not based on reality.

    Lol atta boy. You're too cool to win a Stanley Cup. You must be so jealous of the Buffalo Sabres. It's better to write off a shortened season and lose every game you possibly can than actually try to win :thumbu: Good plan that'll take you far.

    The Islanders literally just did.

    And in what way have the Leafs "Loaded up?" You are not making a lot of sense right now.

    Where I live all people are talking about is hockey. I go outside and its jerseys of all sorts everywhere.

    The Athletic have also stated that viewership just went through a huge increase after last season when viewership was down nearly 60%

    You really did not do your homework before you commented here.

    Even on articles by NBC they had their doubts about the boom after the opening of this season, but viewership remains higher than last season.

    One google search really could have saved you here.

    Umm one team traded Laine for Dubois.
    The biggest transaction Leafs have done this year is pick Galchenyuk off of waivers. Leafs aren't "taking advantage" of a weak season. They've just been better than the teams in the North in the reg season.

    As opposed to the Jets doing what exactly? Jets have "choked" just as much as the Leafs in recent years too. You are actively being exactly what you are mocking Leaf fans for.


    Leafs loaded by signing game breakers Thornton and Simmonds that no other team thought were worthwhile even as 4th liners, and picking up Galchenyuk, who no other team wanted.

    Doing this while waiving players such as Boyd/Vesey who were immediately picked up. LOADIN' UP BOYS

    Or are you going to cite all the players that were already on the team before COVID existed as reasons the Leafs are trying to take advantage of COVID

    Copp back up into the top 6, Perreault bumped up onto the 3rd line and Harkin's (2015 2nd rnd pick who broke out a bit last year) back into the lineup after wasting away on the taxi squad that Maurice seems to have forgotten about

    Oh and Eklund has Hall to Jets (E4) LOL

    I think it's pretty clear that the Leafs are try-hards, and that's like not cool, man.

    Leafs sit at the front of the bus with the teachers. 30 other NHL teams cram themselves onto the back seat.

    Some of these arguments are pretty silly. Guys, let me remind you that you post on a public forum and everyone can read your posts. Try not to be so cringe with your leafs hatred.

    One wonders if people are bright enough to realize most of the players on the team were not even born in the time frame they reference?

    When our present day team is leading the division all they have to fall back on is ancient history to troll, which they do poorly. Take it as a compliment how salty they are.

    I mean...is the last 4 years of 1st round exits ancient history or no?

    Look the Leafs are the best team in the North and if they don't make it to the Conference Finals I would be surprised, but you haven't won a playoff series in a long time so maybe fans should just tone down the rhetoric a weeeee bit until the jobs done.

    Every single team is trying, whether you want to admit it or not. No team has a crowd, everyone is equal. You're either trying way too hard or you're just out to lunch.

    I think Leaf fans should enjoy every moment of their .713 win % season so far. Fans of any other team in the North certainly would be in this thread if their team was in first. Just enjoy the saltiness too.

    Time will tell if it leads to playoff success but this is probably the best I've seen their D since... well, I was a kid in '93. Maybe then?

    If the Leafs continue to get .950+ 5v5 goaltending from Campbell, they will undoubtedly have playoff success.
