You can talk about what he means to the future of the Leafs as an NHL team. That's entirely within bounds. As TMI said, and I said before, this is about Morgan Rielly the player and the Toronto Maple Leafs themselves. The fans as an entity do not need to enter in to the equation.

What's not within bounds is this non-Leaf fans using it to launch into "typical leafs fans overrating their own prospects to feel better about their team's future." or "If Rielly was on any other team, he wouldn't get the attention he does because it's all about placating Leaf fans." and Leaf fan responses of "people are only bashing Rielly because he's a Leaf prospect" and "typical HF, underrating a Leaf prospect because he's a Leaf prospect."

HF's flaming rules disallow attacking groups just the same as individuals. And that includes fanbases.
