Remember when he is leading the Leafs to victory that he doesn't do much for you.

The best thing that is happening for Leaf Nation due to the teams struggles is the bonus of the prospect pool being built up with high selection(s) as a result of the fans enduring the losing. Cox's point is that the lockout is allowing the prospect pool to develop while the NHLers are locked out, which is going to be a long-term benefit.
This couldn't be more truer. Let's be real near the end of last season when things weren't looking so bright losing games was the best thing for the leafs. I don't care what you say but Morgan Reilly > 9th place. Heck I thing getting Reilly is better for the franchise then 8th place.
