The team is bad, real bad. The problem is, there is nothing to make the future look bright either. It's going to take years to fix this. They might as well start today and fire the coach and GM. Have a fire sale, and work on building through the draft. This is ugly.
Even under the circumstances, that's an overreaction. We have an amazing goalie, promising young players that will only get better as they gain experience, Gomez's contract will eventually expire, Cole could play better with another coach... etc.
This team isn't completely crap... it's just PLAYING like crap. That combined with terrible luck, a lack of energy, injuries among other things (some will say a coach that's too stubborn to understand some of the problems he's causing - and I would agree with them right now even though I've liked Martin before).
Do we need to blow everything up and rebuild - AGAIN??
Still 20 minutes of hockey, another loss here would really suck. I really hope the guys will come out strong in the third, there's definitely been some emotion so far this game and I expect the Leafs to be very intense.
Frustrating watching this game. Twice had the lead and Leafs score right away. Can't even beat Leafs backup now. What was Gorges trying to do on that giveaway. All he had to do is dump off the boards but instead tried to skate with it into double coverage and, bang, it's in. Horrible gaffs are costing us right now. Way too many penalties.
