These announcers seem so anti-Leaf, it isn't funny.

What is worse... not having faith in your team.. or being a bandwagoner? Its preseason, I think were a little better than what most on this board are giving us credit for.

I have alot of faith in Fletcher, and I think he is actively looking for a young offensive forward, which is a glaring weakness on our roster. Everyone is crapping on Fletcher and his moves to date, but they refuse to ackowledge that the 3 best players of the preseason have been the players that he has acquired (Grabo/Schenn/Hagman). Frogren is being paid like a bottom pairing defenseman, and has brought exactly what he was signed for... toughness/blocking ability, and has looked great on PK's. Yet people are complaining because he hasn't looked like a #2 out there. Its a joke. Fletcher has done a great job up until this point.

Blake has been atrocious. Obviously he needs to learn to pass more, but his shots are always almost exactly at midsection height. He needs to start taking shots low to the ice. Steen has been terrible too, his decision making with the puck has been very slow all preseason.

Frogren has been my favourite Leaf this pre-season, and I won't even pretend that's because he is basically the second coming of DOG Murray, one of my favourite players.

I think his fighting will be lackluster, though. I imagine a lot of hugging and noogies.

Let me help give some perspective:

Bad Leafs = Good draft pick like Schenn
Really Bad Leafs = Really good draft pick better than Schenn
Current looking Leafs = John Tavares.

These, my fellow Leaf Nation fans, are good times because the future is brighter because of how garbage we are right now.

Remember, the present is garbage... but the future is BRIGHT.
