2014 is the Leafs "shape up or ship out" year.

Don't you mean 2012.

For the sake of my blood pressure, I hope so.

I've been guaranteeing it inside my head for 3 years now.

I'll just be happy to see NHL hockey this season...

We'll see if we even have a season this year.

If we end up getting a 40 game season or so I wouldnt even care if we came bottom 5 or whatever, I want us ready for a full 2013-2014 season where many contracts will be gone, many prospects should be ready and the team should be fully capable of making it.

Dont get me wrong though, I think we could still make it this year, it's really dependant on Reimer actually having a solid year.

Realistically, I think 2013 will be an exciting year.

Granberg will be 21, and will benefit from another year in the SEL
Rielly 19, probably too good for the WHL, so he should have a great chance to crack the lineup.
Finn, 19, could be a surprise to some with his polished calm game.
Percy, 20, Marlies or Leafs?
Biggs, 20, Marlies or Leafs?
Kadri, Colborne, Ashton, Frattin, all should see some NHL games this year, if there is a season.

What this all means is while this team will be promising, exciting, it will be a year of growing pains. They are going to need some strong coaching. Eakins or Carlyle?

Depending on possible trades to the nucleus of the team, 13-14 will be a very exciting team, whether the youngsters have enough polish, this will be the question?

Think 14-15 they most certainly will, 13-14 perhaps.

2012 playoffs have already past, LA Kings won the Stanley Cup, time to move on to bigger and better things now.

Bozak is hardly dead weight.

I agree, I don't understand the criticisms of Tyler after last season.

Tyler Bozak bounces back
Globe-Mirtle

Quote:
Playing several recent games with Kessel and Joffrey Lupul – two of the hottest hands in the league – Bozak has six points in his last six games heading into Tuesday’s meeting with the Tampa Bay Lightning. More importantly, he says, he’s a plus player one quarter of the way into the season.

“I’m been trying to keep that end clean,” he said. “Not cheating towards offence when things aren’t going well. I figure when you cheat on defence, you don’t get the opportunity on offence.”

While Connolly wasn’t originally envisioned as someone to mentor Bozak to fill this particular role, Burke said he’s impressed with how they’ve bonded, calling Connolly a “quality person.”

I think Tyler Bozak made great strides,

I see us making the playoffs in 2013, and getting kicked out in the 1st round.

In 2014, I see us making a pretty good run - Rnd 2 or 3.
