Are the playoffs less fun without the Leafs?
Wed, April 11, 2007

It can't be good for hockey when the Leafs miss the playoffs. It can't be good for hockey when Edmonton is out and Montreal is out. These cities are the lifeblood of the game.

So, now we watch, not certain where to turn. I'm vaguely interested in Vancouver-Dallas because this is Roberto Luongo's playoff debut. Same goes for Calgary-Detroit, mostly to see if the annual Red Wings collapse is upon us.

A playoffs without Toronto won't seem very much like playoffs at all.

The playoffs will be more fun with out the Leafs. After the Toronto media gets over it maybe we will hear about all the playoffs and not just Toronto.

Earth to Toronto, the world doesn't revolve around the Leafs. Not only have the leafs not made it for two years, but they haven't been considered a challenger for the cup in nearly a decade! Whats to miss

It doesn't matter to me . I find the Senators just as exciting.I just hope they win the cup.

HAHAHA sorry im trying to stop laughing. Yeah i can agree maybe we should call off the playoffs since the Leafs didnt make it. Good idea! That way whenever the do make it to the cup we should call that off since they havent played in the finals in what is it 40 years now. Maybe we should forgo the season too and just give toronto the cup next year just to shut them up cause according to them the fully deserve it.

They don't call them the "Maple Laughs" for nothing.

Toronto, get over yourselves, you are center of the universe. You have a crappy hockey team that doesn't deserve to be in the playffs. Get used to cheering for someone else.
