Why must you bash the leafs?its so lame to single out one team and say there never gonna win the cup again...trust me buddy this yearr its gonna happen
Man that's just going to fuel more bashing. Lets just say, may the best team win, that's the way it's going to play out anyways. I wonder what it would be like on this site if the Leafs did win the cup this year though. Would all Leaf bashing seize as we know it?
They are not cursed. Unless they go another 38 years without winning Lord Stanley, then I might think otherwise There are so many teams in the NHL and you can only have 1 winner.
I think Sundin deserves a ring, he's a terrific player! Too bad he's surrounded by a lot of cheat shot artists (Tucker, Marchment, Domi, McCabe and Nieuwy lately). Hopefully they'll clean up their act and utilize their skilled players and solid goaltending to win it all this year!
I think most of the bashing that has been happening is already due to jealousy, and HEY the Leafs have not even won the cup.
None of the bashing is jealousy. What's there to be jealous about? They have a chance to win but I wouldn't put money on them. There's probably close to 10 teams that have as good a chance to win. The Leafs get more bashing than New Jersey, Colorado and Detroit combined and then multiplied by 10, and those franchises have won something recently, plus they still have a chance to do it again. Why the Leafs get bashed is a complete mystery that may never be solved
Yeah, all the other teams are jealous and wish that they too could have prolonged Cup droughts, criminal ex-owners, and pedophilia scandals in their arenas.
So, it's not jealousy. So what is it? It's *coverage*. For the past 15 years or so, the rest of Canada has been bombarded with Leaf propaganda by the media. Hockey Night in Canada stopped being about Hockey, and became Leaf Night in Hockey. Toronto went from just one of the teams to choose from to a league mandated "This Team Must Play Every Saturday Night". God help us all if we actually saw a Senator game early, followed by a Calgary game late. Oh no, the public broadcaster could never actually allow that to happen.
That's why the rest of Canada Leaf bashes. Don't know about the States.
