The Leafs turn into the heroes of March when the pressure is off and play to the middle of the pack of the nonplayoff teams. So maybe the answer is to float like the Kings and get those high picks. Again maybe it is optics on my part and frustration at not getting Schenn but passive teams like the Kings seem to do okay in the trade deadline. Your comments are welcome.
Thanks for letting us know we're allowed to comment.
The Leafs are going to have to be more consistent losers if they want the better draft picks. Your current GM will not help, he's way too aggressive and will make bold moves to improve the team. You'll still be bad, but not bad enough.
