The Leafs lose the easy ones but win the tough ones.
After shedding three players at the NHL trade deadline, the Leafs have 20 games to close the gap on 8th place in the East, but will need some help.
Can the Leafs perform the improbable and reel in a playoff spot?
As for this years playoffs, things look real close. As packed as the Eastern confernence is, the fight for eighth place will be extremely intense. But with Toronto performing near excellent against the leagues best (Ottawa, Detroit, Buffalo, and Montreal) and suffering to the more worse teams (L.A, Tampa etc.) is a good sign. Because all of Toronto's last upcoming games are against the East's best.
Plus you have to consider the ridiculous amount of injuries this team has suffered.
