For those who want a proper rebuild are you willing to wait another 5 years without playoffs that's like what 13 years

What tank? Any team out of the playoffs now has a shot at the #1 pick

I see 1 more year.

Because of Burke's prank(Kessel fiasco) we must tank!

Maybe a motto for a fire sale, or a sinking ship because the Leafs are going with "Burn the Boats" as their motto.

Get a bucket and a life raft people, this could get ugly.

"Keep doing what you're doing" has been the best (and proven) tank motto the past few years...

Not try and we lost-and trade our pick to Boston

That's a bit of a stretch rhyme wise

edit: The Towel we tossed in, trade our pick to Boston works better still not great though

I think pronunciation is generally a poor subject for half the posters in this thread.

That is precisely why leaf fan realists are so venomously angry at Burke.
He had 4 years to try and do this properly and he ****ed it all up.

Now I don't even know what it is that I want.

We have a good enough foundation to be a possible playoff team in a few years... but NOT NEARLY a good enough foundation to be a cup contender.

Who knows anymore...

"Throw in the cards, just don't trade Gards."
"Start the booin', let's get Drouin."
"No more winnin', just MacKinnon."
"Everyone moans until we draft Seth Jones."
"The worse that we start off, the closer to Barkov."
