Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

I was thinking today, and asked a few people I know...

I think another indication of a future of a franchise is how many prospects they have in the Jr. Championships (we have 5 :thumbup:). Does anyone know how many Leafs prospects are in the World Jr.'s? I haven't heard any reports on the FAN590 in Toronto about how a Leaf(s) prospect is doing. My guess it's zero.

A friend of mine posted some Leafs jokes on my facebook, I'll share them here..

What's a common theme with the Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays, Argonauts, and Maple Leafs, aside from all being from Toronto?... None of them know how to play hockey.

What do you call 22 millionaires watching the playoffs?... The Maple Leafs.

Why doesn't Hamilton have and NHL team?... Then Toronto would want one too.

It's a sad fact that most people who witnessed the Leafs win their last cup were in diapers... It's a fun fact that the next time they win, those same people will be in diapers again.

Man goes into a bar with his dog to watch the Leafs game. Bartender says it's ok, so long as the dog doesn't cause any trouble... When the Leafs score their first goal, the dog leaps off the bar stool, does a backflip and dances around on its hind legs. The bartender says to the man, "Hey that's pretty sweet! What happens when they win a game?"... The man replies, "I dunno. I've had him for 3 years and we're yet to see it happen!"

What do the Leafs and the Titanic have in common?... The both look good until they hit the ice.

The Leafs actually scored NINE goals against Atlanta in a 9-3 win today and Lebda still finished with a -3. Go figure.

I love going over to there hfboards sometimes, they sound like whiny kids that are about to commit suicide. I know a bunch of leaf fans up here and they loved Gus last year but now hes struggling there all over him. kind of sounds like some fans over here with our goalies however.

I may be a softy, but dude, I am ready for them to stop sucking quite so badly. I've had my fun laughing and taking their fans down a notch, but now I just feel like they need to uphold the honor of being an O6 team and stop putting that title to shame. They don't need to get all Blackhawky on me and start winning Cups or anything, but I wouldn't mind seeing them make the playoffs.

I gotta say, I love the waffles, though. :lol:

I do feel pity for those fans who actually are passionate and not blindfolded. man, it's tough to be a fan of a team that is simply a perennial disaster.

on the other hand... the best part about Maple Laughs management is that they don't even have balls to do Penguins/Blackhawks and suck badly for 3-4 consecutive years and then build a cup capable team from scratch. it's not like I did approve the league making it that easy to have a serious shot, but since it's working every team is free to go this way. every single except Maple Laughs of course, because they're too proud to hit the rock bottom and will rather continue dwelling slightly above this bottom for decennias...

Dear Mr. Burke

I have been a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs for more of my almost 54 years than I care to remember. I have never joined, nor supported the Leaf Haters, so it grieves me deeply to admit that this game makes me see their points. Please, as one of the guys who essentially provides your job, please, let me make a few comments on tonight's game and the season generally.

First. It would be easy to blame the goaltender tonight. But I note on the first few goals he was left to hang by his team. I am not saying he played well, but Godfrey Daniel he had no support, no defence, no help, Bloody none. Nada.

Second. Your handpicked coach, by rolling his eyes at the skies after the goals and after pulling the goaly left the impression that he blamed the goaly for the first period. Pat Burns would have been standing on the bench, screaming, at both the other team and his own team, letting his own team know they were to be held responsible for their irresponsibility.

Third. Your team, Mr. Burke, and this is by now, clearly is your team, was unprepared, unwilling and/or unable to compete. Your team sir. Your coach sir.

So my suggestions are the following, sir.

Please, first take the coach out behind the woodshed and stress to him in firmest possible language that hanging his goaltender out to dry is not good coaching and that if his team is not ready to play from the opening whistle it is his fault. His fault. Period.

Please, the take the players out behind the same barn and remind them they are paid, Godfrey Daniel, good money to put in a real effort, and let them know how angry and upset long time fans like me are when they do not do so, as they did not tonight. Putting in a reasonable effort and being outmatched is one thing. Not showing up is not. Not, sir.

(Mr. Burke, there is no one, no one, on your team that I am happy with tonight, but I do not blame the goaltender above the rest of the squad. And I remind you sir, this is your team.)

Finally, once you have done that, please, release all of the players except Mike Komisarek to go back to their hotel rooms and think on what you have told them. For Mike Komisarek, keep him behind the barn and ask him for his sweater back. I have a cat that is 14 years old and has no teeth and drools, and we have the choice of putting it on old useless cloths to try and be comfortable on or take it to the vets for one last time, and it occurs to me that Komisarek's sweater would find a much higher and greater use as a cushion for this cat than being worn by this player in another Maple Leaf game. You undertook a noble experiment in trying to salvage his career, Mr. Burke. Unfortunately it failed. Take him out of the uniform now, and permanently.

I Sir, am sorry to have had to have had to write this.

Oy.

Funny letter :lol:

Though I must say - I cannot fathom how bad Komisarek has turned out; was a pretty solid, and reliable Dman when he was with the Habs.

An NHL all-star game starter, as well. <_<

He's ok as a #5, just not worth the money Burke threw at him.

$4.5 million cap hit. For the next three and a half years, plus a NTC.

“They wanted me to do over 30 hours of community service and they wanted me to sign a peace bond and other stuff. I refused,” said Robb, 31. “My parents are proud people, Scottish people. And they just always told me, no matter what I do, I should always stick up for myself and back what you’re doing and don’t stand down.”

Kris Versteeg loves playing hockey in Toronto.

But the recognition that comes with being a Maple Leaf does not always give him a warm smile.

The 24-year-old recently got the equivalent of a cold shower when he came upon his black Audi R8 and found that it has been spit on, with some nasty messages in the dust on the car written to him.

Parking lot. They knew which one was his apparently.

Maybe they saw him in the store and got all the cars outside just to be sure.

I was under the impression that fans weren't allowed near the players lot. Perhaps not.

But at the Joe you can stand right by the player's lot with that barricade.

I bet you could bum a ride home with a guy like Meech. He probably drives a Chevy Nova.
