Can the Leafs reel in the last playoff spot?
Sat, March 22, 2008

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?

they won't make it after last night game, but it was a pretty good run going 12-5-1 in 18 games. and they still can push the Caps into the playoffs. :-) as long as they keep trying to win every game, i'm fine with it. they will still beat Ottawa and Montreal. it will be great to see them spoil some people's party!

I may have missed it George, Im not on here every day, and I seriously think they deserve more attention than they've been getting. Every newspaper, website, TV sports show still talk mostly about the Leafs and the laughable shot at the playoffs they have.

Sorry to say, tonight proved me even more right about the Leafs. I've been saying for weeks they're done and I think tonights drubbing by the reeling Bruins clinches it, particularily in light of Washingtons win also. Sorry Leafs Nation, like I said, it ain't gonna happen.

Oh and George, thanks for trying anyways. Was there a post on there by a Rusty or a Rusty Trombone? If there was than that was me. If not than I was probably away working while it was up.

Norbit, I tried resurrecting an Oilers thread for you that died back in November after just 16 posts. It was headed "Can The Oilers Tiurn Their Season Around."

By the way, you weren't one of the 16 who responded.

You're most probably right, CarlGustav. However, it's not out of the realm of possibiity that the Leafs could be the one to give the final blow to the Sens playoffs hopes. Wouldn't THAT be ironic?
George O'Leary, 2008-03-25 20:08:34

Still no thread about the Oilers and their much better chance of making the playoffs and their impropable run from 14th to 9th place and counting...minus their captain, top centre, top d-man and a total of 314 man games lost to injury...figures.

Leafs are merely flashing at the moment. They clearly don't have the talent or prospects to even make it into the playoffs, not with Florida and Washington playing as well as they are and particularily without Sundin, Antropov and Coliacovo in the lineup. Sorry folks, I love all Canadian teams but it's not gonna happen. Oilers? Very different story. but since there's no thread about it....
Norbit, 2008-03-25 19:24:00

It would be sweet revenge if the Habs were able to knock the Leafs out of playoff contention w/ the last game of the season ...but clearly it'll be settled well before then.
CarlGustav, 2008-03-25 17:15:37

The Leafs have about a good a chance to make it as Ottawa does supporting another CFL franchise

It's nice to dream...

but at the trade deadline the Leafs were tied for 12th. Today...they are 12th, despite winning a pile of their games since the start of March.

Simply put, the Leaf wins haven't translated into traction, as far as climbing up the standings.

The focus on the games with Boston, ignore the fact that there are 3 teams between the Leafs and the Bruins, and two of those teams are playing well also.

Sorry Leaf fans...it ain't going to happen.

Too bad the Leafs hadn't clued in and started playing the way they are now even 2 weeks earlier. As usual, they're actually playing decent hockey when it doesn't matter anymore. If they were able to actually make the playoffs by some miracle, their emotional bubble would likely burst in the first round anyways. If that were to happen at least they could say once again "at least we made the playoffs". Mediocrity rules in Leaf land.
