Doesn't matter if the Sedin's dominate the entire league or if the habs are in 6th, 1st or last, if Spezza and Alfie have as much pts as Malkin and Crosby. It's all futile because on CBC the leafs are so important that their every little actions must be spotlighted.
I think it's clear that there's a lot of investors in T.O that are little too close to CBC. I would go far as to be saying that CBC is being used as a publicity puppet and it's working.
I don't think there's a single sports franchise in the world who have been so under-achieving and so successful financially.
Except maybe some NFL team... another league with similar parity.
But, right now, the Leafs seem capable of getting a playoff spot, even though some of you might not like it.
