Yeah, it's quite amazing to see what the Leafs accomplished last year despite getting subpar goaltending.

We essentially outscored our problems thanks to Lupul and Kessel.

This year, we've already lost Lupul for 6 weeks at least and Kessel has had some good chances but no goal yet and Kostka can't handle Kessel's passes at all.

Kessel should have at least 6 points right now if our PP was good enough to finish. Kostka is sucking the energy off that PP.

I expect a push for the playoffs and an eventual decline to a top pick.
