Wow, call the HoF, Scrivens went all Goalie mode on a AHL Bingo team! DEFINATELY one for the record books....they should make a movie! Or at least write some songs about the glory of Scrivens mighty win over th big bad bingo boys! Kinda rhymes...

Leafs have a decent chance of making the playoffs. If they are able to do this to a team, it shouldn't be that hard:


They just need a few more games against Montreal
Yea because you can clearly judge a team based off of one game

Not according to local media they weren't...we were touted as having more skill while the Leafs were derided as being old, creaky thugs. And if we were underdogs why did Team 1200 have a "Panic Watch" until 4 a.m. in the morning every time they beat us?
Yeah, we as a city took that just fine...

Anyway, to answer the OP's question, I said second round if they face Pittsburgh or not Carolina not Boston.

Well I definitely can't judge a team based on your opinion. I basically lost all respect for your opinion back when you decided to go on the Prospects board and started ripping into Rielly at the beginning of the year when you had never even seen him play, all in the efforts to satisfy your hatred for the leafs.

There's no way you can make a conscious realistic assessment of the leafs because that leaf hate bias will always be creeping into your mind like a disease. Try working on that and then come back and make a realistic assessment without the snarky comments about the good ol' days or about history and please focus on the present.

Show me one time I ever hated on Rielly. I only ever ripped on the fact that Leafs fans believed Craig Button's ridiculous list.

In the present, the Leafs still probably won't make the playoffs. Maybe a first round exit at best, they have too many holes to go far.

Bold 1: I can't bring a specific quote because the thread is closed, but for anyone who is interested, they can look upon the final pages of LD Morgan Rielly - Moose Jaw Warriors, WHL (2012 Draft) on the prospects board to see your work.

Bold 2: This looks like a reasonable statement that I would probably say too. If it wasn't for previous comments and remarks you have made about the franchise, I'd prolly value it a lot more.

You earn respect. Most of us see every year where the Leafs are projected in September/October to be in the playoffs only to fade after Christmas. Until the Leafs actually make the playoffs people are quite right to be sceptical.

I have watched the team. Probably more objectively than you. Wilson also had the team on some good runs when he was coach. I understand why some Leaf fans want to blame everything on the coach and absolve the players of all responsibility but the fact remains that the players played poorly under both Wilson and Carlyle last year. Until those same players actually show that they can make the playoffs I don't think it's direspectful to be sceptical. You need to grow a thicker skin.

I'm not expecting playoffs but I'm hoping for them. If they make it, they'll be a lower seed team and the only way I see any chance of them making it past the first round as a lower seeded team is if they somehow draw Pittsburgh in the first round. I know playoff hockey is different but based on regular season play, for some reason the Leafs generally play well against Pittsburgh.

so why is it that Randy can get so much more out of what is largely the same group as Wilson coached? the reason is Wilson was a coach that had NO system he just let the team play fire wagon hockey which would be fine if we could do it on a regular basis but we couldn't and EVERYONE knew it except Wilson .

Randy doesn't do that and thats why he has a team that could be tied for 2nd in the east after tonight.

You're basing your analysis on 15 games?
I know that people on HF Boards have short memories but you're also 3 points out of 9th place. I can understand why Leaf fans are feeling pretty optimistic as they are off to a good start in a short season. But anyone who draws conclsuions on a 15 game sample size is jumping the gun, IMO. Again, we've seen this Leaf team play well in spurts before. Let's wait until at least the half way point until saying they've turned the corner. A couple of losses in a row or a couple of wins in a row could change everything.

actually it's 33 the beginning of change could be seen last year when he came in but he was hired to late for it to show up in the standings but you could the boys buying in. This year it's showing up in the standings

Now it's my turn to ask you if you watched them last year.
They played poorly last year after he came in too. It's a 15 game sample size where they have played well. Nothing more nothing less. As I say let's wait to see if this is a blip or a real change.

2nd round exit. They'll upset a team like Pitts or NYR in the 1st round, and then get shelled in the 2nd round due to lack of playoff experience and young players.

Much as I wouldn't bet on the Wings to miss the playoffs, I'm not betting on the Leafs to make it.

Miss playoffs. They'll find a way to Leaf it up before the end of the regular season.

I think Tampa and Philly make playoffs of the teams that are currently out. Toronto and Ottawa both fall in the standings.

I'll give it a week until they're out of a playoff position, which they won't regain
