    Well that's a little much to expect but I'm very psyched to be going into the playoffs with a different goalie other then Andersen and not have to face a god damn top-5 team in the league Bruins.

    I think bare minimum, we're set to win round 1 in style.

    The Leafs will have something to say about that over the next 3 games :)

    They will end up taking Luke Hughes and trading Peterson for Jack.

    Outside of Connor and Ehlers, the Jets are bad up front and on D. Ehlers is a fantastic player. Scheifle and Wheeler, despite their career numbers, are meh. They have a horrendous blue line and rely very heavily on their goalie. Its basically two forwards and their goalie. I think they'll get steamrolled come playoff time. I call bullshit on people thinking they have a top 5 forward group.

    Montreal is still 16th in the league though so they should have a playoff spot. Dallas has same number of points, but so far, no team is making it that shouldn't be.

    Best scorer in the league will annoy most teams.

    Those tears taste beautiful anyway.

    Can Leafs fans please get over the fact that Hughson isn't a Leafs fan? It's f***in' pathetic.

    I don't give two craps about who he likes or favours, he is drop dead awful at his job. The greats of the present and the past, have a certain tone of voice. Hughson and his chimp, simpeon, have no range in their voices at all.

    They make something fantastic sound like a funeral. And they do it game after game. Year after year.

    So when we get another no talent, who can range his voice a wee bit better, like Chris Cuthbert, we feel a little bit better.

    I was a huge WHO fan, still am. So, I was a bit surprised when they invited Noel to play with them. But wow, did he ever deliver. I love Oasis, also, but was kind of more of a Liam fan. Not after this display, now I RESPECT, them both.

    Cuthbert called the game I listened to last night. Why would anyone listen to Hughson if Cuthbert is available?

    Still a lot of butt hurt going on because Hughson never sugar coated it when the Leafs were bad. So that's a lot of negative coverage for years. I found a big difference in his narrative post 2016 for obvious reasons. He's not my favourite, but he calls a decent game.

    As for the win; It's been decades since I felt so calm watching the Leaf games. In the past few years if the Leafs went down a couple goals I would be thinking they can't let the next one in, or this game is already over. You could see the defeated effort early in the game when down.

    With this team their is a expectation that they are never out of it. They can come back or bounce back. They play with a purpose, and if they are having a bad game, they still might be able to win. It's really enjoyable to watch.

    Last years, Vezina, Art Ross, Hart, Lindsay, The Messier, the Top 2 points leaders and the guy who missed the Rocket Richard trophy by one goal play in the North. Is Canada this good? I think the answer is obvious.

    Brooks has been a nice surprise, late season addition. I was never sold he was true NHL material, more a feeder guy in case we had a ton of injuries. But, he’s shown good skill, great hockey IQ and plenty of hustle. He seems to gel well with Spezza too, guy has been a pleasant revelation and is making the most of this chance. He’s in the mix now.

    Also, this division does truly stink and it is the worst in the league imho. Leafs have no peer and ain’t even close. The Oilers are a mirage feasting on inferior opponents. Jets decent but not a real threat. I honestly can’t see us not making it to the third round, and I’m an abused Leafs fan.

    Awards were great, all those trophies didn’t mean anything in the playoffs. I mean McDavid’s team has done nothing, the hardware is irrelevant to this discussion.

    The fact is we’re talking about how strong this division is and the guy with a full trophy case plays on a team that does nothing. So it isn’t strong at all.

    There’s a ton of talent here, I take your point.
