Let's see, if the playoffs were to start today Ottawa would be in 4th place, meaning a match up with Boston, Toronto would be first playing the Islanders. So far Ottawa is 3-1-1 VS Boston, and the Leafs are 1-2-0 VS the Islanders.(yeah, I have too much time on my hands) Boston is playing much better and I think goaltending would be the difference in that series. What does that mean? Toronto won't get the chance to meet Ottawa and beat them four straight again after we put the Islanders out of their misery.
I realize there are lots of people who are Leaf fan haters, but I look at it this way, the laws of average are on our side. It's been 37 years since we last won the cup, it has to happen again, sooner rather than later.
No one said life would be easy, just worth it.
