2004? Lalime lost to Belfour. The Leafs were old, slow, pathetic and embarrassing. They looked like they all need to be sent to the glue factory. Ottawa owned them all over the ice.
Are we arguing? I agree with you, I think. Except I think goalies are part of the team and are included in the choking. 03/04 was a chokejob, losing to the leafs 2-0 in three of the games and then that debacle in game 7 (and really, it was only 4 goals... not insurmountable for a team that has a backbone).

Also, we choked in game 7 against Jersey, failing to complete an epic comeback.

I don't think Boston is near where Ottawa was. That run of choking lasted a good 6 seasons. San Jose is the team I would think is closest.
