Leafs Goal Differential This Year

The Leafs had a surprising 250 goals for and an abominable 293 goals against last year for a differential of -43.

How do you think they'll do this year ? Will they be take a big step backwards in offense with the loss of Antro and Kubina Will Burke's moves to shore up the D and goaltending pay off ? Have the maturation of some of our young guns taken place like we've talked about all summer ?

225 Goals For (-25)
243 Goals Against (-50)

Goal Differential -18 on the season but a + 25 goal differential improvement as a result of dropping 50 goals against at the expense of only 25 goals for.

My prediction was quite similar. I had us at 230 GF and 243 GA. Stark improvement from last year..but I foresee us missing the playoffs which corresponds to a negative differential.

I am going to say better goaltending/defense combined with similar offensive will result in a between +15 and +30 goal differential.

Offense can't match last years, so probably 230
Deffence must be much better, 245
-15.

Surprising results so far. 11 voters have us with a + differential. Only 6 have us with a negative one. Optimism reigns supreme with Leaf Nation !
