I've said it before, but the die hards that I met/was surrounded by at the WC were awesome and a blast to be around. They live and breathe hockey and were so thrilled after that win. Loud obnoxious fans aside, I'd take them over the Hollywood fans of the week "watching" Kings games any day. And I second the sentiment that I want the O6 franchises to be leading the pack every year. Because of reasons.

And then when you live in Toronto? You have no idea what Leaf fans are like in Toronto.

There were a lot of cool leafs fans there.  And there were a lot of leafs fans I wanted to punch in the face.

Yep.  Sure feels good to see their bi-polar fanbase thrashing around hysterically.  2 months ago Kessel was better than Crosby and every single player on their roster was better than ours, and now........here we are :)  Fire everyone.  Trade everyone etc etc

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

I was worried it was going to come down to 1pt.  Yes, that point.

Every game we lost this year everyone on the boards said that would be the game that ends up screwing us out of a playoff spot. And all the laughs fans were saying the Leafs were the better team. Fast forward to now, we've clinched a spot, the laughs are eliminated from playing in the playoffs, and I'm happy :)

As someone from Toronto, I know all about it. Hence why I think they deserve every bit of the misery they get. Props to my Bruins fan Dad for raising me to not be a Leafs fan.

They are the most unpopular team on HFBoards.......and its almost entirely down to their fans.

I'm seeing this thrown around a lot lately, is this a "where there's smoke there's fire" thing or just wild speculation?

I was slumming today and watched the Tim & Sid simulcast thingy they do and heard a stat from Micallef that is mind-blowing: the Leafs had a League worst average of 35.9 shots allowed per game. Miccallef then said he spent about an hour and went back to the available stats and found that since 1997-98, nobody has put up a worse number.

The much lauded TML defence might be a priority to look at.
