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?

No they cannot!..Same old story year after year.Isn't this the same maple leafs' team that everyone,media included,wanted to "trade everyone for a bag of pucks/big mac,fire anyone in management,a few short weeks ago?I mean...wake up people..this team underperforms year-in,year-out during the regular season,when they have a fair chance at the playoffs,like any other team,only to "show heart and determination" in the last few games of the season,and they're everybody's sweethearts all over again?...Give me a break!The only thing this sudden "burst" will results in,is having the same underachievers to be given another chance next year...Toronto's favorite saying...:"Wait 'till next year"..and next year comes...and next year goes...and...Voila!...Spring comes,leafs are out!..At least,only then,does our great national broadcaster,has no choice,but to show the rest of canada,good,competitive,meaningfull hockey.See you all next year!!!Cheers!!

Screw all you Leaf haters, the Leafs will for sure a top team in the near future and they'll make you eat your words, for now you can ride your hoorays for now.

I'm from out West. It will be a beautiful day when the Leafs don't make the playoff's and we don't have to heard another word about them. Go Away!!!

Hey DM, by game 82 the leaf players will already have planned their golf trip destinations, while us Habs fans will be watching the Canadiens start their journey towards the Stanley Cup. Golf leafs Golf. Go Habs go

DM, I just can't abide baseless foolish statements as there are no more loyal fans in hockey than Habs supporters. And unless Jesus and the Apostles are actually planning to suit up in blue and white the Leaves aren't going anywhere but to the first tee!

how stupid can a sports franchise be ....first they tell their fans they are contenders.... then they fail to adjust the future at the trade deadline.... now they have comfortably put themselves out of the lottery for the #1 pick .... and everyone is wondering if they will make the playoffs... just another dumb mistake to keep themselves where they are all I can say is WOW

I am a die hard leaf fan, but where were these guy's earlier in the year.. Did all the hoop la at the trade deadline hurt the frozen 5's EGO's .. I hope they buy out their contracts in the summer and get guy's who play all year not at the end..

Carl- check the calendar but Jesus is set to rise...
DM, 2008-03-13 00:07:53

..and, for the record, I'm a Habs fan ...but I'll support ANY Canadian team in the drive to the Cup ...except the Leafs - once all of the REAL Canadian teams are gone & only TO remains (like that'll ever happen! LOL), then I'll switch to the US team of choice. To me: TO = USA ...so might as well go for the better team if that happens!
