It looks bleak..

Even the most optimistic fan can see the cliff coming up fast. A loss tomorrow would be a complete disaster. The Caps in the middle of a 3 day rest with 2 games in hand. Yikes.

6th & 7th place are pulling away. 8th looks like the dogfight...but Burke's botched Frankenstein of a team looks like they just crawled into the toilet and have their fingers on the flush.

Yes, they did. They defensive breakdowns were constant. The quality scoring chances were few and far-between. We played a perimeter game. Our PP, which was given numerous chances to get us back i nthe game when it was still close, got ZERO quality scoring chances.

The score reflects just fine how badly the Leafs played.

So true I laugh at my own posts and others. It's tough to be a fan of this team, at least there are others that suffer too.

Team still sits in eighth. Will have to earn the playoff spot.
Better this happens before the deadline, not after!

Didn't have it AGAIN tonight. We're hanging onto a playoff spot by a fking thread. Burke, is there hope? (a.k.a. BIG trade).

All the gifs are for sure needed in this loss.

1st line is not nearly good enough defensively. Kessel, Lupul and Bozak can't all be on the same line it seems since they all get lost in their own zone wayyyy too often.

2nd line couldn't get anything going. I'm tired of Connolly and he needs to get off this team cause he's just a black hole of production and makes players around him worse.

3rd line besides Kulemin for a shift or two really stood out and Crabb should not be on the team instead of Frattin.

4th line I thought was the best line tonight for doing their job and grinding down the Flames defence.

Not alot of good shots and this reminds me when Reimer got a 49 save shutout except we made all the bad shots.

Can't blame the monster on all the goals, he had the right to be angry after that 5th goal...

Omg, omg leafs lost 4 games in a row. The sky is falling!

Lol, are you guys forgetting were a young team? Were prone for mistakes. It's just some people like that can't accept.

Like what Mansfield said, we shut down Tavares and Malkin in back to back nights. We can show we play good defense. It's just we need to be consistent. Try a few more years and this team will be alot better.

The team is not ready to play from the get go.
This is on the coach!

Enough with the player movements, fire the coach!

btw, did anyone else notice that Schenn looked a little quicker than usual out there?
I don't think it could get worse than a 5-1 beat down, it's a slow progression.

5-0 MTL L
5-1 Calgary. L
5-2 Edmonton L
5-3 Vancouver L

In about 4 games we'll finally lose a game in OT and grab a point.

What would be the point of this squad barely managing to finish in 8th place?


I wouldn't make the team something it's not: a contender. Tis team is a joke. Somehow managing to get into the playoffs only mollifies the rabble for another year of mediocrity after maybe 1 playoff win in 8 years.

Anyway, Gustavsson is a piece of ****. I actually had a devilish smile on my face as I watched Iginla put goal no. 5 past the sieve. Send this guy back to SEL, fast.

He's overrated. The faster Leaf management gets it the faster we groom Gardiner to be a top pairing D.

Gunnar is TO's best defenseman by a mile.
Woah, Woah, Woah. Phaneuf had a terrible game tonight, but seriously? Strip him of his captaincy? The guy has been a force all year and was an all-star this year. He's also a leader vocally on the ice and in the dressing room. I can't think of a better capatain on this team than Phaneuf.

Get over it. Two of you created one, and this one had replies in it which is probably why it was left. Who cares?

Building from the blue-line out my ass. This defence has been bottom three in the league since Burke's arrival, because all he did was go for big names instead of putting together a core of defensemen that can effectively play a team-defense for sixty minutes. The only times we've been successful under the Burke regime is when our team potted a bunch of goals early and sat on them.

If this team ever could make the playoffs they'd be consistently shut out against any other team because they have no capacity for clutch play in important games.

Burke better ship someone out soon, be it the players or coach, and hold some people accountable for this mess.

Bottom line:
