Relax the team isn't as bad as the media says it is. They have lots of speed and skill and depth up front and on the blue line with mediocre goaltending and not enough experience and toughness in key positions. That's what we have and it's not going to change every time we win or loose. We really aren't that far away from contending and there is no reason to blow anything up.
We'll if you look at the GDT yesterday the world was ending for the first 2 periods, that tune changed quickly.

Then our PK plummeted to last, as usual.
All wilson's years were disgracefull for our PK. Nothing to do with you lol.

Can we agree to keep people off the main boards proclaiming the "Leafs are for real" this season until we have about 4 games left this season? Why give the other fanbases fodder?
Can we apply the same rules to Tank Nation?

Games played impacts the PPG, less games equal points = better PPG.

Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.

See what you were saying now.

I'll make up my mind when we reach the 15 game mark, and obvious mid way of the season. Things are way to weird right now for me to go aboard the playoff bandwagon. So far I am in the neutral zone.

So once again, had we received better goaltending we would have been in even better shape. Take a look at what Anderson is doing for Ottawa. Had Toronto had a guy like that the last few years we would have been in the playoffs two years running now.

I think most around here predicted we'd be a basement dweller this season, but there is no reason we shouldn't be competitive for a 6-8 seed.
Who would have thought removing L.A.C.K (Lombardi, Armstrong,Connolly & Komisarek-injury) from the line-up and "playing the kids" would have positive results in the standings.

This with Kessel scoreless on the year and captain Phaneuf with 1 assist while playing 30 minutes a night to boot.

Kessel is still getting points, althought he is under PPG right now since he is not scoring. Most shots in the league, and ton's of great chances. Talk about snake bitten, he even missed the open net (I'll just pretend he did it to make his 100th a worthwhile goal with meaning, AKA against Boston).

I am sure it will come and once it does watch out, he will be lights out.

So after tomorrow's loss to the Bruins are we going to start panicing that we are out of the playoffs again? Waaaay to early for this kind of thread.

There's a difference between praise and arrogantly making a thread on the main board proclaiming our greatness after stringing together a couple of wins. Let's make sure we know what we have first this time, that's all. Of course, as what's his name points out, the same applies to the opposite.

Sorry it just reminded me of my nephews when one of them is told something. They always have to make sure that the other one is told the same thing as well so it's fair.

"Them too! Right Uncle?"

"Yes, little one, them too!".

Have to love this place.

I love it when you post, it's because it makes sense and also because I can do this.

Main board? This appears to be in the Leafs board. BTW I agree it is too early, but some people seem to be unable to be happy after a few wins in a row, kind of sad really.

Many are so quick to put them down, but unwilling to praise them for wins and hard work.

Hard not to get excited but still too early. Though I like the effort this team brings most nights.

Of the 3 losses so far, we should have won the Buffalo game and blew 2 goal leads in the other two, so this team has the potential to go on a run.

The PP needs to improve and we need to learn how to lock down games in the 3rd. If we can do those things and continue to leverage our depth, we are going to continue to surprise.
