You realize we aren't still playing last season, right? It's a clean slate. As of now, most of the league has a better team than the Rangers, the Leafs included.

Just like the team doesn't seem to change much the defeatist mentality amongst the fans doesn't seem to be changing much either.
Excuse me for expecting to beat one of the worst teams in the NHL. Yeah on one night they might get us, it happens. But losing to the NHL's janitor teams 3, 4 times a year each has to be snipped and I want it to start tomorrow night. I'm sick and tired of multiple losses every year to Toronto, Montreal, and the Islanders. It's horse ****.
They beat the Penguins the other night too. I bet it doesn't happen again.
The opponent tonight is not the Toronto Maple leafs. We are neither blessed or condemned by the injury to Joffery Lupul. The opposition goaltending is almost as irrelevant to us as the eventual back up we have sitting on the bench whether it be Henrik or Marty. Oh no no. The opponent tonight is a team that was said to be among the elite in the league this season with the potential to be one of the best that this league has seen in the last decade. The opposition to the New York Rangers tonight is of course, The New York Rangers.
