Still a chance. I'd rather wait until they're out for sure before anything.
You just know Toronto will pull it out to make our avatars look bad.
Yeah, people were so quick to count the Leafs out, but there is still a chance (albeit small) that they make the playoffs. I also wouldn't be shocked to see them put up another good fight against the Bruins if they made it. I would save my gloating until they're mathematically eliminated.
How is that dumb if executed well? I guess it's better to sit on your ass and bash someone's attempt at creativity.
It's dumb because you don't play to win the Cup for your country, you play to win it for your city. The rest of Canada doesn't care.
People who actually think they're being witty, funny, facetious and/or trolley by repeating this "Canada's Only Hope" ad nausea are just that; dumb.
And good luck trying to explain how this was an "attempt at creativity". This whole thing lacks creativity, if anything. It's using the most cheapest common denominator available (that of having only one team from Canada participating in the playoffs -> zero effort to come up with that).
