Hopefully 2014-15 will be the Leafs year, but if not there is always beer!

As a tribute to all DIE HARD Leafs fans we've created a custom t-shirt that will only be available for a limited time for $19.99 ($10 off Today)

I assume people saw the "no goal" in the Pitts game? So that's no goal, but Malkin pushing Bernier off the puck into the net is. NHL likes to confuse me.

Just been watching some Gretzky highlights since I only remember the end of his career... They are pretty vanilla for the most part. Most of his goals he just  skates up to the hash marks on  a one on one  and fire a slap shot that hits the top corner, rinse and repeat.

Even though they are going to the playoffs, the Leafs still need to get rid of the coaching and tweak the forwards and defence. Mark my words it will be Bernier playing at another lvl these last games and getting us there. Not the current system. They need to say fuck Randy dandy's system and go all out. One last hurrah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this next stretch of games will tell us something about this group. Time for talk is long done. No more excuses, no more cliches, just get out there and do something about it.  If not, pack your bags and GTFO

Wild now only 5 pts up on Canucks for a playoff spot. They are 3-4-3 in last 10. So add that to spending 100+ million in contracts to only win one single playoff game last year (we won 3), and in 2012 going 14-23-5 to end the season when they were in 1st place, thus having a bigger collapse then the Leafs did, does that make them a laughing stock of the league? Or how many of you just realized this now because I said it? I think so........

@Tim Horton Goalies just sucked back then lol Those shots from beyond the circle going five hole on a goalie standing up is hilarious to watch now.

@Pent_House On an offside goal too. Habs getting the help again. Sure it helped us, but it's still crap.

@Jordan29  Well the Canucks game isn't over and even if they win, they'll be 5 points up with a game in hand on Vancouver. They'll more than likely make the playoffs in the more difficult Western conference and have spent just as much money as the Leafs......soooooo no it doesn't make them the laughing stock of the league?

@Pent_House @Belfour20/JB-45  The Marlies are a manifestation of the type of player Morrison/Burke valued during his early drafts. Is there enough skill to go along with the brawn to translate to the NHL level with success, is the question.
