Leafs Continue Journey... Of Mediocre Play

Well, with all guns blazing and ready for the big Habs game on Tuesday, we came out quite good actually. We out shot Montreal 40-25 and we generated some decent D, decent goaltending and decent offense. Hulk Hogan, otherwise known as Bryan McCabe ( love his handlebars) had something to up his sleeve however. Shortly after overtime began, McCabe, with his head down, passed the puck to Nik Antropov. Actually, scratch that. He passed the puck to Mike Komisarek who got a break-away from his OWN blue-line and scored a 5-hole game-winning goal on Andrew Raycroft... who was out of luck.


So off we go, another tilt with another northeast division rival. The Boston Bruins, the Big Bad Bears, an original six foe. After losing a close game, which the Leafs should of won against the Habs, they will surely show up for a great tilt. Not! We lost 5-2. Raycroft was terrible. Defense was terrible. Offense was terrible. Not ONE forward standed out to me... and that's a scary thought.


These recent events, which have been on-going since the beginning of the season, tell me one thing. We have no character. We can't bounce back after tough losses and we can't get the job done. Win or lose, we're always the same. Mediocre.


I had enough of this, either clean house or just fire JFJ. I don't care, do something, because this is embarrassing and this kind of up and down play will get us no good picks, no playoffs, no nothing.


It has to end.


Rant over.

RG,
quite a bit of hostility! Don't worry the Leafs bounce back well but your right their effort was lacking against the B's the other night.
At least Wellwood is back and scoring at a nice pace!

JFJ is horrible though and if he does not get the axe this year I don't think he ever will!
