Okay..I totally get tanking and I'm totally on board if the losses pile up but try to remember that this team isn't EDMONTON or COLUMBUS.

They're not as good as their hot start earlier in the season, and not as bad as this slump. They lie somewhere in the middle...

Also people crying because your best player scores a goal...that's sad. I'd rather see a 40 goal Kessel go into the offseason to be more motivated to hit 45-50 than see a 35 goal Kessel...

These guys get paid money to win..they don't lose on purpose. When they lose, they genuinely suck, and I hope we see more of that...

It's amazing how terrible we are in our own zone, we are totally useless at the getting the puck out or supporting the puck along the boards, everyone just stands there and watches.

Unless we play Boston. Maybe we can get Bettman to make an 82 game schedule for us against the Bruins only.

Kessel's goal was nice. He's trucking along nicely to 40.

Bozak ripping up the Isles D. Komi with some physical play.

Grabo line looking dangerous.

I like the looks of the team tonight.

No way we're up 1-0 right now if we are playing anyone else but the Islanders. Other than the Ashton-Grabo-Frattin line everyone else looks meh.

Luke Schenn reminds me a lot of PK Subban.

Don't understand how people can be upset that Kessel scored. I'm in Tank Nation but I still have to cheer for the Leafs and get excited when they play well. At the end of the day we have no influence on what happens so only then will I look at the standings and see how I feel.

So they're somewhere between mediocre and ungodly terrible.

The only similarity I can think of is that they both play defense and shoot right.
