Playoffs?!?!1



Even the New York Islanders finally won a game.

What makes those standings hurt all the more is the fact that the Air Canada Centre is once again an easy place to play.

I know this is only Ron Wilson's second season coaching the team, but if he can't get the penalty kill up to at least 80%, he should be fired.

The ominous start to the season has left me detached from the team and thinking: fuck truculence. I'd rather have skill.




I'm with the ever quotable Jim Mora: "I just hope we can win a game."

(And a friendly reminder: please make sure to vote in the poll to your right.)

Regarding the poll...is 'Playoffs!!1' another way of saying FUCK NO?

If so, then that's how I vote.

I vote for Playoffs!!1.

I told you the leafs would wait for you to come back before they won....

No the leafs will wait for Kessel to come back before they win...

WE SUCK.

Skill is good...

@ Meredith: You made the right choice in the poll, but try not to be so selfish!!!1

@ BhattiBoy: The Leafs do indeed suck. My biggest fear in life is Boston winning the lottery and ending up with our first overall, first round pick. That would send me on a bender the likes of which will be written about for years.

We're going to lose on Saturday, and beat Pogge on Monday night. Fitting.

@ Scott: Skill is good... So I've heard.

They don't even have any damn Truculence from what I can see. Orr dropping the gloves in a few staged fights does not count. The top 6 forwards are creampuffs. Rage!

Let's buy the Leafs and turn this ship around, afterall, we're Millionairs!

Dont count on the Win against Pogge.....

@ LFIV: If Colton Orr personifies truculence, I want nothing to do with it. And I'm off this top 6/bottom 6 bullshit. Put the best God damn players out on the ice every night. Period.

@ Geoff: Mr. Seamless!!1 So nice of you to drop in and say hello. Let's hit up the Pleasure Pitttttezzzzz, make some cash, and put an offer on MLSE's table that they can't refuse. Millionaires for life.

@ BhattiBOY: If Justin freaking Pogge beats us, that will be cause for a mini-bender of its own.

Seriously guys.. Only 8 points out of a playoff spot. No time to panic yet.

PLAYOFFS!!!1

Honestly, I still believe we can get a win. We just need to improve on every single aspect of our game. Staged fights and dumb penalties, plus sub-par penalty killing ain't gonna cut it.

(And I hope my blog name won't offend you. :P)

When was the last time a team didn't win a game in October?

Never been much of a Burke fan. Don't have clue what he's doing now. Kessel BETTER be good cause he's going to be the only thing to watch for this year.
