    You see that with every team, lots of people watch sports that way. It’s a hell of a lot more fun to be an optimist and enjoy the ride then obsessing over why your team can’t win.

    This place isn’t really a great sample of the average sports fan.

    The Leafs have objectively found ways to find bargains left, right and center, but keep pushing whatever narrative you want.

    It'll be weird to see Jumbo not wearing #19.

    Except tampa had been far many times. What has Toronto accomplished that is similar to tampa? Tampa has been to the ecf 5 times in the last 10 years.

    Let's be honest here they're closer to the Panthers than the Lightning

    These jokes that come out and flop are not because of sticks in asses, but because they are so poorly constructed and lack any humor.

    Apparently the poster who gets all worked up over some statistical analysis:

    ... thinks she gets to decide who has sticks in their ass.

    Clearly we need to adjust the salary cup to account for the bias Ontario players have for playing the Leafs like we need to adjust for taxes ;)

    If you can say signing jumbo for $700k is bad there is something wrong with you. Any team would take him at that amount.

    Some self depreciating humor. That is funny. A little effort makes all the difference. Good job!

    Well of course they didn’t have to pay a big price, these are league min deals for players that weren’t in great demand.

    And yes the Leafs added toughness but thats not hard to play against if that toughness can’t skate. What they should have been targeting is physicality, guys that can skate and bang, hard on the forecheck, big motor type players.

    Thornton said in his media availability there were quite a few teams interested. Literally at the start of this clip:

    I like Jumbo Joe but this is a weird acquisition, considering they already have Spezza.
