Don't be sorry, it's good therapy for Leafs fans; they stop by all the time to be reminded what's wrong with their team.

That game was a microcosm of their season. Get out to 3-0 lead, couldn't hold on to a 2 goal lead 1/2 way into the 3rd, then the wheels fall off the bus and into the cliff.

Wow, I was almost sure I heard Sabres fans screaming, "Where's Brian McCabe??" in the first period. (in reference to him shooting the puck into his own goal in OT against BUF a few years back)

Taking into account the complete meltdown the second half of the year, I have to assume Burke will be wheeling guys out of town during the summer. I think he has one more season to put something together, otherwise he will be canned. This isn't the typical in your face team that Brian Burke is known for. Let us recap a little bit and foreshadow possible changes to come over the summer (Because I can't sleep, and frankly, I have nothing else to do at this hour):

-Colby Armstrong: Absolute disaster this season. He's been injured for the majority of the year, but he's been invisible when he is in the lineup. He's been a healthy scratch 11 times this year. 3 points in 27 games this year. I have to think he will be sent somewhere, because he is wasting a roster spot at this point.
-Mike Komisarek: Severely underperformed, considering the cash he is making. He's been a healthy scratch 15 times this year. He was injured for a stretch of more than 20 games earlier this season, as well. Ever since he got to Toronto, it seems Komisarek has struggled. I think after he signed in Toronto in the summer of 2009, the organization was expecting him to take on a larger role on the team, as opposed to the 3rd pairing shut-down guy he was used to being in Montreal. We have seen how that has worked out. I think he could make a decent 3rd pairing defenseman, but nothing more. I have to believe he will be offered as trade bait over the summer, as well.
-Nikolai Kulemin: He's had a disappointing campaign. Coming off last year, where he scored a solid 57 points, his offensive production has dramatically decreased. 28 points, as of right now. I don't think it is too much of a stretch to think Burke may try to package him along with someone else in the pursuit of someone to stick Kessel with.

It will be interesting to see what he does with Jay Rosehill and Joey Crabb, as well. I believe they are both free agents at the end of the year. Knowing Burke, he'll probably make a push for George Parros, which may push Rosehill out of the picture.

Burke claimed in order to play Carlyle's way, they need to get bigger, so as predicted, Toronto will be actively looking to get meaner...

Of course, Burke goes after ex-Ducks. Nothing new.

Burke will trade the 5th pick, Kadri, Schenn and a pick from next year for Nash at the draft.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.
