The Leafs arenâ€™t as bad as a four win first quarter. They were a playoff bubble team prior to the season, and the postseason wasnâ€™t necessarily the goal, as was becoming competitive enough to stay in the run. They arenâ€™t a bottom five NHL club, and unlikely to finish in a lottery position.
This season continues the transition like last season into shaping Toronto into a respectable organization, from management, down. That hasnâ€™t changed with the off season moves, aside from some specific performances.
‘Spirit is Everything’ is a fitting slogan .. because winning this season, means nothing.
