Everybody who plays for the leafs is on a perennial non-playoff team.



Nobody says that.

Grabovski gave both his wingers career years, they probably sent him thank-you cards for their last contracts.
Phil Kessel wasn't part of the Boston Bruins squad when they blew the 3-0 series lead to the Flyers in 09/10, he was in his first season as a Maple Leaf during that campaign.

Over an 82gp season, there is bound to be hot streaks and cold streaks for every player no matter how consistent they may be. Why would we exclude his hot stretch? Perhaps we should exclude his cold stretch instead
