Excuse us, if we doubt your team... but you Leafs fans always start dreaming early on in the season and spam the forum with Leafs threads... to only have your team fail.

I actually wish you guys make the playoffs, because 10 years is just too long lol, that and the fact that maybe the main board won't be flooded by Leafs threads. Still voted no. Goalies need more experience.
For a guy who's been here since the summer of 2011 you sure make it sound like you've been here for a decade.

Thanks for proving my point. Horton (who doesn't even wear a visor takes off his helmet) Phaneuf who does wear a visor refuses to take off his helmet/visor.

Phaneuf is a coward.
lol. Horton didn't lose that fight because Phaneuf didn't take off his helmet. Certainly, Horton didn't cut his face on Phaneuf's visor... I mean, he wasn't too much of a coward while winning this fight, right?

Also, Lucic should've obliged Orr; tell me, what does that make him?

This thread is FULL of extreme homers and haters, all adding to the ongoing joke (whether they mean to or not).

He was to much of a coward to take off his visor and as usual he hid behind it. Phaneuf is one of the biggest cowards in the league.
If your opponent takes off their helmet you do the same. Period.

It's a little different since Orr is a pure goon, & Lucic isn't - yet despite that Lucic has fought Orr in the past. He lost but at least he didn't hide behind a visor like the coward Phaneuf.

Even just looking at the trade rumor section being full of Leafs trade proposals , being told our players are essentially worthless is enough to make me close down the site. Then you have the troll posters making stupid offers from the perspective of them being a Leaf fan to make us look bad.

I'm just glad that these forums have the option to ignore entire threads. I'd say mine is up in the 500 total atleast.

You again? If you're going to call a team out, at least get it right. LAST year the Leafs started well and fell off, but previous years it was typically the reverse, with a hot finish giving fans hope.

You're hilarious man. You're way too into bashing the Leafs or something.

If the leafs win the next 2-3 games and then start to slip, they'll more than likely make the playoffs with their great start.

How they do in the playoffs, no one really knows.

Some people have too much time on their hands. The way he constantly puts the Leafs down in almost all of his posts, you'd think a member of the Leafs' organization stole his wife / girlfriend / whatever.

Hard to say. I just hope both MTL and TOR make it for the possible matchup in the playoffs.

Yes, because that's all you said! You've been in every single Leafs thread the past few days. You can wish the Leafs in all you want, but you've still been active in every Leafs thread the last few days, and not for complimenting them.

Really though, it's amazing how much people hate the Leafs. People literally find any way possible to put them down, regardless of its validity.

Lucic didnt hide behind a visor but he did hide behind the refs what a ****ing coward, couldnt get his ass beat like a man so he had to hide behind the big ol' scary refs

And it's not as if other teams get this same treatment. I've been here for eleven years now and a lot of the posters change but the same attitudes remain. There is not a single other NHL / hockey team that experiences the same vitriol that the Leafs do.

Not Montreal, Vancouver, NYR, etc.

And the sad thing is, the Leafs haven't even been relevant in the NHL since 2003/04.

Hard to compliment them when the threads are ridiculous such as Leafs are the toughest team, Scrivens best goalie 2 shutouts in a row, Meet Komarov, etc...

Anyway, this is going offtopic so I wont bother responding to you anymore.

I hope the Leafs keep up their play, it would be nice to see Toronto fans get to see their team get in the playoffs. Contrary to the belief of a lot of Leaf fans, we Bruins fans generally like the Leafs a heck of a lot more than the Canadiens. I hope they make the playoffs as well, it would be great to have 3 teams from the NE in the playoffs, it probably won't happen, but it would be fun for us fans of NE teams.

You've misrepresented the threads you decided to bring up, but I am not surprised.

The person who made the tough team thread actually had a question mark at the end: "Are the Leafs one of the toughest teams in the NHL?" or something to that effect. Besides, the person who made that thread wasn't even a Leafs fan.

Regarding Scrivens and his shutouts: as if any other fan base wouldn't post a thread about one of their rookie goaltenders shutting out a huge division rival.

Leo Komarov is an interesting story. He was drafted by the Leafs a number of years ago and quickly fell off the radar afterwards. Komarov has been providing a presence that the Leafs haven't had since Darcy Tucker was in his prime. Players that pop up out of nowhere are often spoken about as well.

So what's the problem here?

Problem is people are still thinking this team is circa 2005 or something, when we'd go out and pick up veterans every trade deadline and make a push. It's completely different now.

Name me a major player on the Leafs NOW that is a scrap.

And it's not like other fan bases don't make ridiculous threads either. The problem is people automatically assume that every Leafs related thread is made by a Leafs fan, and then go off the handles calling the Leafs out for every possible thing they can, regardless of whether it's relevant. Leafs fans literally cannot be proud of anything here, as anything positive that is posted is met by trolling and flaming. Sure, sometimes it's justified as we have dumb fans (like every team), but it's really taken far beyond that with the Leafs. I don't know what it is really, clearly we haven't had anything to be jealous of the last few years, but the hate remains. My only idea is the off ice financial/fan base success, but I'd rather have on ice success. So again, no clue what it is.
