To tell the truth, many days go by where I don't give missing hockey much thought, as I go about life.

When you're a fan of a bad, losing hockey team missing the losses and suffering through never-ending losing seasons is actually lessened when there is no hockey at all to endure.

It has been ever increasingly difficult to follow this team through its darkest time in Leaf history. Leaf Nation was spoiled in the past as even during the Ballard years loyal Leaf fans never had to endure more than 2 consecutive non playoff years.. Now we have 7 non playoff seasons book-ended by a pair of lockouts and unbelievably and unimaginably 10 years between playoff appearances.

Hopefully when hockey returns MLSE is more concerned about Leaf Nation fans, and demands self accountability internally to validate the money fans invest in it, and puts a team on the ice we can be proud of again instead of forced to make excuses for its failure.
