    Most satisfying division win possible. We won the Canadian division. The Canada cup. A legitimately once in a lifetime opportunity. No matter what, we were the best in the country when Canada only played Canada for a whole season.

    We are Canada's team. Get that banner up.

    He's good while Bogo is out. But Bogo is better.

    weren't the Leafs Cup favourites before the season started? Maybe I'm wrong but that's what I recall reading.

    I think that was the year we signed Tavares.

    I don’t think they were ever cup favourites, Division favourites for many though.
    It would be a huge leap to go from missing the playoffs to cup favourites

    you make sense but I seem to recall betting odds etc all pointing to the leafs. Maybe I'm suffering from the Mandella effect. lol!

    No, no. I remember it as well. We had the best odds to win the cup, according to Vegas, a few years back.

    EA’s simulation had the Leafs winning the Cup that season as well.

    yeah exactly, and while we’re at it I guess we can assume that if we win the North division come playoff time, all of the other Canadian cities will be cheering for us right?

    How many times in the past has the local media suggested all Canadian fans should rally behind the last or few remaining Canadian teams? I’m sick of it, you think I’m cheering on Edmonton or Winnipeg to win the cup? Lol, Will they be cheering for us in the final 4? Lol, zero chance.

    If we won the cup there will be some rabid fans from other Canadian teams looking for the nearest bridge to jump off before they would join in on the celebrations

    Beyond them losing again in (not even) the first round, do you remember how shit this team looked for long stretches last year? They still couldn't hold a lead, fell apart late in games, were horribly inconsistent with the killer instinct of a caterpillar, riding a ~.905 team save percentage. I thought we'd win the division this year mostly by virtue of being a big fish in a small pond, but they won this division on their own merits. They've played the most composed hockey I've seen since the core arrived. They got hold on first early on, and despite some mid season stumblings, anytime Edmonton or Winnipeg came sniffing the Leafs showed up and stomped them back down the ladder. I'm not indignant that "only" 50% of pundits had us finishing 1st, because the 19-20 Leafs did not deserve 100% deference.

    I think that was Vegas odds.
    Edit: looks like about 5th

    100% agree. When healthy, Bogo for sure, I was referring to if Bogo is out when the playoffs begin.

    This wise oracle predicted the Habs to be the best in the North

    I'd truly love to know what possible justification there would be for Boston being top 4.

    Also Montreal same as Washington and Carolina. LOL

    We didn't miss the playoffs last year, despite your insistence on posting that false information in every thread.

    But isn't that like graduating grade 12? I am pretty sure none of the Leaf players really care about that but are only focused on a trip to the finals.

    Well the Leafs did miss the group of 16 which is the normal playoff structure. The "play-ins" were a one year anomaly.

    Florida is not on that list... time to put some money down on that longshot...

    Pens and Panthers IMO are good risks to put some money down on, with that said I don't gamble.

    The play-ins were not the playoffs. The play-in's were post regular season games / pre playoff games to decide who made the playoffs.

    From the NHL website : Stanley Cup Playoffs

    It shows the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and SCF rounds no mention of the play-in rounds because the play in rounds were not the playoffs. The play in rounds again were games you play to get into the playoffs, ergo PLAY IN round.

    Show me on the link provided where the Leafs played. Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Heh, that was pre-season which was what was being talked about just previous, probably should have quoted someone.

    Habs and Canucks were horribly overrated at the start of the season.
