The difference between a lottery team, and a team that finishes outside of the bottom 10 is miniscule (4 points). Had Wilson not rode a stone cold Reimer when he had a goalie playing well, we easily would have finished out of the bottom 10. Would people consider that a success, since the team would have done better than in the previous year?
If we weren't going to be contending, I'm content with having picked up Rielly. Thank you, Reimer.
Right and similarly, I would have liked to pick up Nugent Hopkins or Landeskog, Hall or Seguin, and Tavares or Duchene throughout the years Burke has been in charge. It's no different than being happy with Rielly. But the fact is its too late and the damage and opportunities have been lost/.
Because that's what the Leafs needed (and still need) and that's who have been within reach of how bad the Leafs are.
But Brian Burke chose to try and aimlessly make the playoffs and not these extremely rare prospects evidenced by his willingness to trade his own firsts away for instant help and spending to the cap with terrible free agent signings.
