Apparently the Leafs are better than everyone realizes
Taken from the Leafs board by Mr Scarface - I would like to nominate this for Most Hilarious Post of the Year!
This team is better than many other teams.
It came to just one thang.... just that one thang. The posts. The Leafs are a better, more active team with the puck than the Devils for example. And better than many others. The Leafs should have won last night, they was hittin' posts like many many times and the Leafs were the better team too. In a long run, the Leafs would beat the Devils, like in the playoffs, no matter who's in goal. This team is better now than Boston, Philly, NJ, Islanders, Washington, Buffalo, Rangers... Better than some teams in the west too, like much better than the Canucks or the Flames, or Nashville. And it's like that. This team was built just the right way.
The refs were horrible last night, giving Kubina that first penalty (for what?) touching???? And those Devil players skated over Toskala, in both goals, just like Mr. Cherry said. Leafs were hitting posts etc. This team is much better than some people think. Sundin and Antropov were throwing people around, like they was some cool supa heroes u heard me.
What a season this has been. I want to see some beautiful Leafs playoff hockey again....... I'm a VERY emotional man and I always get so excited, when the puck drops in the playoffs, and the Leafs are playing. Anything can happen then. I so wanted to see Mats, Darcy and others playing mad playoff hockey this year. There is still plenty of games left, but hittin' them posts looks like did it this season. It's a shame, like one great writer would say.
To be serious, I think the Leafs are a much better team than their performance indicates. They sure play well against the Habs and other top teams in the East. It is the lesser teams in the league that have really killed their chances this year.
