Thanks for posting the most obvious statement in the world to us. The ZERO guys who think we're a cup contender appreciate your frank honesty. Again, thanks for levelling with us, quite a cold, but necessary, shower.
It was more in response with earlier on in the thread where there's tons of posters saying they're pissed off or upset that we lost to Philly. Yeah, they didn't expect it?
I'm just happy we found a way to stay in the game till the end, perspective damnit.
Now you can all continue arguing pointless stats, and trying to prove the size of your iPenis's.
You seem to be avoiding the topic. At this point in the season, an easy schedule doesn't suffice as an excuse for the team winning games.
I'm not afraid to look at our teams record against playoff teams like NYR, Pitt, Wash, Ott.
I am not avoiding anything. I was referencing the article and the stats therein and I agreed with it. I think the schedule has been great but I also acknowledge that the Leafs have been great and they have owned the teams you have listed above.
Maybe, I don't remember the specifics. I remember something dumb about strength of schedule, but, whatever. I thought it was dumb around here too when people brought up the only good teams we've beaten are pittsburg, NYR, St Louis, etc etc and pointed to the Wash and TB to prove what this team was really like. I think we hammered TB and Wash those nights 7-1 or something like that.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. 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 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
