At least they'll get a good draft pick, but Burke will probably trade it away anyway.

It's not word for word, but I posted this on my facebook...

Funny how the Leafs, after killing their chances to make the playoffs AGAIN have now won two in a row. It's probably guaranteed they'll put a good run together here at the end, get everyone excited for next year, but will get another mid-level draft pick. I dedicate this song to them:

I had a reply that said, "Funny how it looks like a Red Wings symbol"

For an American player :hehe:

Or they'll do what their doing now, and win some games.
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions

There's been a little bit of ink in the the Toronto Star recently about how they should trade "Mr. Lonely".

Shameless provincial corporate product placement evident.
Post-game fifteen-minute "closed door" meeting called by the captain; no details given as to whether Kessel's on-camera yawning is under control or not.

Only 14 shots at home in a 5-2 loss to the Islanders, 13 SOG in the 8-0 loss to Boston. Guess that coaching change didn't provide the spark that Burke was looking for....
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Chants at Air Canada of 'Fire Burke' ... will he respond like he did when they shouted 'Fire Wilson'?

I think the players must have been given the order to tank the rest of the season to move up a bit on the draft.

There was talk on TSN radio today about the "Fire Burke" chant, Pierre Lebrun thinks that Burke has one more year to make the playoffs, or he's gone. If I'm a Leafs fan, that's a scary thought, there goes the #1 pick, and more quick fixes next year. Just fire him now, and rebuild this thing properly.

The sad thing is, the ACC is still sold our every night, and the waiting list for Seasons Tickets is in the thousands... Leaf fans boo because they pay top $$$ to watch them lose. Guys how 'bout doing something else? Toronto's a world class city, with a TON to do.

When the Red Wings went through their 17 year stretch where they only made the playoffs twice, the arena was half empty and they were giving away a car every game. Win or lose, always losing, and the ACC is packed.

What a mess!

I wonder why me, the Red Wings fan, is the one frustrated with the Leafs. I guess since I have a lot of friends who are Leafs fans, I see how much their team takes them for granted, and how stupid my friends are to still financially support the team.

It would be better if those seats were empty.

I became a fan of the team in the late 80's because of Clark, the passion the fans have for the Leafs, and how cool the city of Toronto is; my confirmation of the Maple Leafs being my distant 2nd favorite team solidified when a buddy of mine, and I paid "Hog Town" a visit many moons ago (in fact we were only 19 - however we could frequent the bars)...Toronto is similar to Chicago in terms of size, population, and things to do - however Toronto's cleaner, and the folks are alot more friendly...We stopped by the Maple Leaf Gardens, and the security guys let us walk around inside; we chatted up a few maintenance employees, and nobody seemed to mind we were there - how cool is that?

Anywho - I may be in the minority here, but I firmly believe the fans, and the city of Toronto deserve more from their NHL franchise.

Well, that does it. Toast.

Glad the NHL chose them to play the Wings in the Winter Classic.

Watch them win a couple of games now and clamber up to the 7th or 8th overall pick instead of tanking and getting a lottery pick....
