No its not NJ fault its the LEAFS why should NJ play there hearts out for toronto WHO are the LEAFS if NJ need toronto to win to make it in do you think the leafs would play there best players if they had any NO its been TWO YEARS and no playoffs but fan keep on giving in to paying huge for tickets wake up maybe its time to step back take your $200-$500 tickets insted of going to the game in toronto go to buffalo see a real team play or go to a bar or something until they open there eyes.
First off Buffalo is a talented team yes, And the atmosphere in Buffalo is unreal! I saw a Leafs/Sabres game last year and it was incredible! I have never heard such a loud arena in my life! Second, Lets not blame anyone but John Ferguson! We can't get made a New Jersey because Toronto shouldn't have to wait for the final game of the season to make it in! Thinks like injuries and that, We can't use that as an excuse either, These are pro. athletes and if someone goes down, another needs to step up. We hould have spent money in other places, locked up smaller term contracts, looked for a new captain and a different coach. Just my humble thoughts.
Yes get rid ferguson ervey time a player comes up for trade or is a free agent all they say is now is not the right time BUT when a player who has been in the nhl for 15 years or more comes up for trade they jump all over it. I would not be shocked if they offer jhonny bower a contract. Keep the coach he did a great job with what he had.
hey james,make shure someone digs up sawchuk while they are getting horton,we need a solid back up goalie for bower-remember 1967? i am a leaf fan but i have to say that they suck and i am really disapointed that in 40 years i could not celebrate another cup. maybe in 40 years from now they will pull it of when im six feet under with horton and sawchuk.LOL
I'm a Wings fan, but I always pull for the Original 6 Teams to make it into the playoffs and the Finals. I keep hoping that the Leafs will do something each season, but it never seems to happen.
Honestly, how is it that newer teams like the Ducks, Sharks, Hurricanes, Lightning, etc. can build winning teams, while the Leafs remain mediocre? The Leafs are in Toronto! They are surrounded by diehard fans who actually love, and understand, hockey!
ACC IS SOLD OUT FOR EVREY GAME there no need to waste money on player in fact if there could there would use temp players just pay them $8 hr. The pepole in toronto will still go to the games ITS toronto one of the (org 6)
It has nothing to do with logic. Fans don't build a team or make strategy decisions. It's impossible to win the Cup with one Sundin only. Leafs should have drafted all Sundin's brothers instead of trading for Lindros.
Don't worry. Iverson won't stay as a Nugget for a long time. A couple of disappointing seasons and he with Carmelo will be available for Leafs.
