I really like seeing another team that plays a similar style of hockey to Boston. For a while, it seemed like the tough and physical style hockey I love so much was going away, and it's nice to see another team that doesn't take any crap, and can throw down with the best of them.

I actually enjoy the Leafs, and I like your team more than anybody but Boston. No offense meant, so sorry if anybody took it the wrong way.

I found out I got tickets to the game on March 23rd, so I'm looking forward to the next one as well!
There is no need to apologize for complementing the Leafs on their improvement this season.

Unfortunately our Leafs have been among the doormats of the NHL for the past 4 to 5 years so its a sensitive matter (which is not your fault), as mocking was the norm. The Bruins manhandled the Leafs in the past and it was to the point of embarrassment really when you lose 8-0 and 7-1 etc.

I for one enjoy the praise, because it shows signs of improvement in our team as being witnessed through impartial/unbiased eyes when it comes sincerely from an opponents. Our Leafs have a new identity this season and its one built to compete against teams like the Bruins. It should make Leaf fans proud of their achievement and enjoyment at them appearing to turn a page towards a team that many teams can no longer push around at will.
