This years version of the Leafs is the best team to have not won. Its a damn shame.
Really not that big of a shame tbh
So true. They're the very best team, but unfortunately were dealt the talent of choking. I guarantee if all the other top teams were filled with chokers they'd have zero cups. That's what Hfboards doesn't understand, if they get rid of that one thing they'd have a cup or 2 by now. Meanwhile other teams are 2 elite players away from being where the Leafs are.
The NHL loses when the Leafs lose
Those Sharks teams were all better, Philly 2010 was better, Canucks 2011 were better, Nashville in 2017 were better, Boston in 2017-18 were better, Ducks in 2003 were better, that's just off the top of my head. I'm sure there's at least 2 more teams per year that were better than this Leafs team. This is a weird thread.
Not even the off-season yet and we’re getting threads like this lol
btw Canucks 2011 gets this for semi recent teams . They were a juggernaut offensively and defensively. Just got run down in the playoffs and had a bad match up in the finals and still almost won .
2019 Lightning say hi.
I'm confused here, are we talking about the best Leafs team to not win a cup or the best team in general to not win a Cup? Because if it's the latter, the 2019 Lightning and 1996 Red Wings would like a word. If it's the former, maybe? I'm not sure.
Or are we talking about the best team this year to not win? Because Colorado would like a word too.
Yeah but I think this is a troll thread
They're not even the best team to not win the cup this season.
No, the NHL wins when the Leafs lose. A yearly tradition since 1968
Watching Sportsnet’s announcers have a mental breakdown after hyping up the Leafs all season long as one the best teams in the league was extra sweet.
Did OP get hacked or something? Usually threads like this are from burners or known silly persons. 3k posts is a bit much for this kind of thread, no?
Think maybe Leaf fans overate how good their team is. Off the top of my head they definitely weren't better then the Caps teams of the 2010s, Tampa teams, and probably several others
You might have a case if you're asking for best teams to never make it past the 1st round.
I'd say the 1986 Oilers were pretty good.
I hacked this account years back. There was no intention by my actions (out of jealousy) other than ruining the reputation of the best and most intelligent poster on this forum. So sad that the handsome 6'1 guy who owns this account hasn't noticed yet, I bet he's too busy with his 10 girlfriends.
Everybody wins when the Leafs lose.
The 2007 Buffalo Sabres:
Hecht - Briere - Vanek
Roy - Drury - Afinogenov
Kotalik - Gaustad - Pominville
Paille - Mair - Novotny/Peters
Kalinin - Numminen
Tallinder - Lydman
Campbell - Spacek
Also had Connolly, Stafford, Zubrus, and MacArthur for what has to be the best collection of scratches I've ever seen
Leafs is the most talented team in the North by far (except at goaltendending obviously where it's either Jesus Price of Hellebuyck), but it's also the softest team in the division, and it means that your run would have stopped at Vegas easy. Maybe even at the Jets, 'cause I think that the Jets would have bullied your team in the playoffs. Montreal also won fair and square against the Leafs because they played with their blood, guts, hearts, and a good dose of good ol' grit.
Leafs need to add gritty/hard forecheckers and fast players to play on the bottom lines ASAP. Resigning Hyman should also be a priority for them. If they can add grit to their talent, they could do some damage.
1995-96 Red Wings
Like best team ever to not win a cup? I don't think they'd crack my top 100 for that.
this is the entire post?
This team isnt as good as their 2018 team ...Lol Toronto isnt a contender Leaf fans need to wake up and realise this
Why are you being so generous? There’s probably ten teams on paper just this season alone you can argue are better then Toronto. Much less factoring in other years.
