Luck is being 4-0 to start the season. 23 games into the season, this isn't luck for Toronto. They have a system and they're playing like a team. Let's face it, Theye good this year. They should make the playoffs, but at this point even the Habs could miss the playoffs.
I agree and held the opinion at the start of the season that they were going to be good. They definitely have a system and are very similar to us in that their coach has elevated them to a new level, they have great rookie contribution (Kadri) and can still win while missing key players (Gardiner, Lupul).

I was watching their game against NJ and they were down 2-1. Now, fair enough, Hedberg was crap on the ensuing goals, but they got to the front of the net and found a way to win. Got to give credit where it is due. They could easily pass us if we let off the gas so I hope MT has the team concentrated on repeating the first half of the season and not just coasting at .500 (doubt he would accept that).
