It's not ignorance at all. Sure, we haven't been 30th in the league for 4 straight years but what difference does it make if you are 28th, 29th, 30th or 26th?

Not much, they all have one similarity: Terrible PK ---------> No playoffs.

Florida had more chances on our PPs than we did. Once again poor PK lost the game. Reimer is looking like he should not have come back. When Kessel does nothing the team generally loses, and he is starting to get left behind in the scoring race.
Phaneuf is a number one defenesman and Kessel is only two points away from being the league leader in points.

I have no idea how anyone can criticize Kadri for turning over the puck when you watch what this team does all the time.
I suppose you re going to build a statue of Kadri

Really you don't see it as a major issue when your captain fails at motivating his team? Or that the captain (our so called #1 Dman) is to lazy to back check? What type of example is that? Guy won't even except a fight to change the momentum anymore. He is the Tony Romo of the NHL to busy being a the "Captain of the Maple Leafs" to play hockey

Hockey gods favored the panthers today. They really didnt have many scoring chances today but poor goaltending and wierd forunate bounces gave them 5 goals. Mistakes were made by many but we could have easily won that game with the performance we had.

Phaneuf has been terrible. Some real lazy plays from him most of the night.

Are you just frustrated or are you being serious? I can understand if you're either one of those.

There were some plays that makes you chuckle because they're terrible and made you infuriated a few years ago. Now it's just the norm.

What is kind of funny watching is how lazy they are on the PP going back into their own zone to retrieve the puck.

Like out for a skate day at city hall. Almost like watching a Disney skating cartoon.

If he is indeed our so called #1 d-man, you don't want him off the ice for 5 minutes.

Certainly, you must know that 30th place would be the requirement for four straight years for his statement to be true.

Ignorance: the state or fact of being ignorant : lack of knowledge, education, or awareness

Seems to me that the definition is quite accurate.

1 game does not a season make. He's as slow as molasses though which doesn't help his back checking.

Gardiner and Aulie should be sitting for a while. Reimer's been a joke so far this season. It's embarassing that he's leading goalies for ASG.

4 Monkeys running from drape to drape could run a better penalty kill than the Leafs.

Wow. Screw this. Score shouldn't have ended up like that, bounces and calls type of game. No excuses though, we had our chances.
