you like to suffer , dont you. you want to see this team in the playoffs, 3 more years of wilson, burke tells us all this team is good, on top of it we get our ass kicked in the playoffs.
Nothing wrong with getting our ass kicked in the playoffs. That's how a young team gets tested and learns how to win. How are you supposed to win anything without getting into the playoffs?
And even if we do make the playoffs, there will be changes; this team needs to get alot better and I don't think Burke will just sit around, be satisfied and do nothing. As long as this team succeeds, I could care less who the coach is.
If you were asked at the beginning of the year if you'd be happy with being in a playoff spot mid February - would you be happy?
I think us Leaf fans should just relax and enjoy watching this team. They're young and will make mistakes.
Trust that Burke knows what he is doing. I think he's done a great job. He'll do what's right for this team.
I would have wanted that question qualified with the spot and who was behind us . Besides it's not just about where you end up (unless you won the Cup), but how you got there. If we squeak into the playoff with this kind of play I'm not going to be too happy going forward. Need to be better.

I agree. We have to make the playoffs, it's unacceptable to miss it as much as we have over the last few years. These younger players have to experience postseason action, even if we lose to the Bruins in 5 games.
How has this team looked so good at times yet has looked like utter trash the last while?
I wonder what our lines are thinking when they go out there:
Kessel line: score, score, score -- **** we got scored on.
Grabo line: don't get scored, don't get scored on, don't get scored on
Third line: LOL as if we're a line
