I dont know why the fanbase chooses Kotska as the whipping boy its not like hes on the ice a whole lot and is probably not being considered for long term use.

Gunnarchit would be a much better suited whipping boy in my opinion. Not that he shouldnt be on the team, just not the first pairing.

We got 42 points right now, 7 more than 9th right now with 13 games left. How many games do we NEED to win to guarantee a spot ? 5-6 ?

Plenty of time left to jockey for spots

Don't wanna play Boston in the first round but realistically i think Boston takes our division lead, They're only 1 point back of MTL. That would drop the habs to 4th... If we can take Ottawa's spot, leafs vs habs in the first round ?

Id say 4-5 wins+ maybe some OT points and we will make it.

Every win gets us that much closer to clinching a playoff spot. Does not even matter to me who the Leafs end up playing in the first round. Win as many games as possible, worry about positions after you clinch.

What is the fascination with staying @ 6th and "we should let them win" crap..

People do know how long the Leafs have been out of the playoffs right? I could give a damn who we face as long as we make it...

I want the 2 points and that's it.

All the games against the Bruins have been close. Ron Wilson is not our coach anymore.

Just win as many games as possible! We shouldn't care about the spot until the playoffs are reached!

Go Leafs Go!

You can worry about seeding once they officially earn a playoff spot.

Hell it might not even be Boston, they could still win the division and we could end up facing Montreal.

But yeah, to hell with losing. It's Ottawa, what kind of pride would we have if we let them win. **** that!

personally I think the jets are going to choke (and it's too bad i want them to make it in) but Carolina will get 3rd. I REALLY don't want to play carolina when they have Ward and the Staal brothers at their best... I would rather be the underdog in a Montreal series. I'm really hoping for a big win - I feel like we're going to come out flat though.

1. Mike Kostka is our whipping boy because he's the weakest link on an otherwise very competitive team. Plain and simple. By playing him we don't play one of Jake Gardiner of John Michael Liles, two far more valuable PMD that heavily favour over a 27 year old rookie.

2. "Gunnarchit" is never going to catch on. I've seen you using the term, and it just makes you look like an idiot.

3. Since Carl Gunnarsson (the defenseman I'm assuming you're referring to) has joined Dion Phaneuf on the top pairing, Phaneuf has been playing a far more dynamic offensive game knowing that a steady veteran has got his back. Gunnarsson is a +6 this season and is putting up by-far the best offensive campaign of his career. There has been absolutely nothing wrong with his place this season.

According to the sports club stats, Leafs need to go at least 6-6-1 to guarantee a spot in the playoffs before the Ottawa game.
