I guarantee if one of the few defencemen in the NHL who you think are top liners (i.e Weber, Chara, Suter, Keith, Pronger ect) played for the leafs their shine would rub off real quick, especially if they didn't have adequate support. Weber has 0 points this year in 7 games. If he played in Toronto the media and fans would be all over him for not producing on the PP.
I'd argue that its the complete opposite complex - everyone in the league sucks except for players on Toronto to the majority of posters on these boards. Look no further than our fans contributions to the trades/proposals section LOL
