I can't say that I disagree with the guys at sportsnet. This team isn't improved and you are banking on a lot of variables. That isn't the best recipe for something positive to happen.

The problems that were there at the end of the year, remain unaddressed by Leafs top brass. Tim Connolly isn't miraculously going to stop being a band-aid, Lupul hasn't played a full season in the NHL and the Leafs are shocked that he gets injured and won't hold up, and the defence (which was the biggest issue) was resolved by shipping away Luke Schenn and bringing up a rookie that hasn't played a game in the NHL yet. Not to mention that relying on essentially the same goaltending duo that put up a terrible sv% and GAA.

Sorry boys and girls, the Leafs are not a good team.
