Leafs suck, and no one is scared of them. I live in Toronto now and watch quite a few leaf games and they really are not that good of a team especially over 82 games.
Well I am no one then, because I am scared of this team. Not because I think they are going to be that dominant but playing against this team will be 60 minutes of hell. When you have no answer to guys like Mclaren, Orr, Frazer, Clarkson and soon the Brolldozer things can get out of hand quickly. Think about the douchebag Lapierre und what he did to Lidstrom...I don't want that happening to any of our players, thankfully we had Downey back then but nowadays there is no one to protect Datsyuk, Zetterber g or our young guns against beasts like Orr or Mclaren.
Also their goal-tandem is good to very good, both have something to prove and it will light another fire under them. Though the Leafs made a mistake by trading Luke Schenn so their defense isn't that good anymore but they are not a team to be taken lightly.
On the Puckpodcast last week they've mentioned that the Wings ar e on of the second tier teams to winning it all, so this means the DetroitRedWings are in the mix with a couple of other teams such as Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Columbus..who all are known for iup and down seasons << predictions are hard to be made.
People thought games against Backes and the Blues were difficult, wait till the DetroitRedWings square off against Toronto or Boston...
My realistic prediction: just like last season fighting for the playoffs
