Poll: How are you feeling about the Leafs’ playoff chances?

Poll: How are you feeling about the Leafs’ playoff chances?

1527

Since the Maple Leafs took four of a possible six points to start a tough five-game road trip, they have dropped three straight games in regulation to Eastern Conference foes near them in the standings. Barely a week ago, fans were talking about locking up the #2 seed in the Atlantic Division; now, the team has had their playoff chances drop to 65.5% with a massive game looming Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Leafs have 11 games remaining and probably need to win at least six just to make the playoffs. Opponents ahead of them are distancing themselves from the Leafs while teams behind them are catching up. What do you think, is this team going to snap out of it and make the playoffs, or are they going to continue this tumble and slide right out of a playoff spot, 18-wheeler style?

Are the Leafs still going to make the playoffs?

Leaf fans must realize that this Club will never  be a contender.

This is a business and the owner's are not forced to obtain strong Hockey Mgmt and/or Player's, however continue to generate a HUGE profit.

END OF STORY.


If the private/corporate sector want a "Winner" , stop buying season tickets and sending their customer's to the game.

If their "Pocket Book" is affected it won't be long before they have no choice but to provide a better product.

Play-off time = collapse time. Only reason we were there last year is due to the shortened season. They are losers and always will be. Stop putting money in the franchises pockets and cheer for anyone else.


Leaf fan turned Bruins fan.

@Jordan29  Bernier told the scrum he probably won't be back until he does a full practice, which he did not do today. So who knows? I suspect we may not know until game time or possibly the morning skate.

@Jordan29  Both coming back next game and Bernier will score 3 goals. While Bolland has a 98 save shutout.

@Belfour20   Is this in reference to a recent interview? If so, when and where?

@Belfour20  

MLSE sales/marketing guy came into our lecture last week to talk about his career (alumni) and he could not stop talking good things about Lieweke. He said every employee there (slight exaggeration probably) has bought into what he is saying and they all believe something special is happening and championships are coming. He said when Lieweke brought up the parade it inspired everybody.


I know people are going to make things sound better when they talk to schools but this guy was honestly not bullshitting, he could not stop talking positive about Lieweke and MLSE and was clearly way more into his job than the other speakers

@Belfour20 Waiting us landing Stamkos or Tavares... Think he had a hand in Bernier already (with his LA conections)

He went a little cowboy when he first got here, but since then he's adapted.

@CanuckUKinToronto    lol   His "connections" meant nothing. If LA didn't like our offer better than the others we wouldn't have Bernier now. Simple as that.

@Belfour20 @CanuckUKinToronto@ingy56  I think that is why I sometimes stand up and make a point when others who haven't been exposed challenge on here.. Best way to learn and have fun is to engage in dialogue.. I am opinionated and like if others can educate me and if they are correct change my opinion... but I already formulated an opinion already usually based on experience..  hence why I will post things or do some research on points.. 


Ultimate goal.. buy an NHL team and help run it..

@Belfour20 @ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto  Yes, Expos really lost out too. Obviously hockey carries a much deeper passion for me and probably everyone here, but I used to support the Blue Jays quite a bit. I would go to 20-30 games a year and was at the game Carter won the Series. I've been to maybe 3 games since.

@ingy56 @Belfour20@CanuckUKinToronto I fell out after that too and then living overseas in another time zone, tough to want to follow a slower game.  Sky Sports covered NFL and I watched NHL streaming.  Baseball only channel 5 in UK showed playoffs... Football (Premiership and UEFA/Championsleage) non stop

@CanuckUKinToronto @ingy56 @Belfour20  I believe the Blue Jays may have worked out that kind of scenario (more attendance based) when they signed Roger Clemens. The fannies just never made it to the seats though.

@ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto@Belfour20 I think I told you guys before, when I became the CEO of the Bank in Germany, we also had debt (equivalent to 25% ownership of a Bundesliga team).  It was secured by TV rights iand Transfer payments (which of course I would have never lended against because if it went bankrupt that value of that collateral is ZERO).. But operating, it can generate money.  Another bank that I left (I was COO of the bank which is based in middle east) bought an English (not Premier League) team after I left..

@Belfour20 @ingy56 @CanuckUKinToronto  I just hope he doesn't think buying players is the way to go like it appears to be the way in soccer. Free agency has not been kind to this franchise.

@Belfour20 @lukethenuke  This guy is demanding . He desperately wants all 4 teams under the MLSE umbrella in the playoffs at the same time . My guess is if the Leafs don't make it he 's gonna ask some pretty blunt questions to the people running and coaching the Team. From what I've seen so far this guy isn't just some big bullshitter
