  1. Just prior to the season-long lockout. Yes! I think we beat the Sens that year. Perfect.
  2. If it were up to me we'd be having a parade for every round of playoffs that we win.
  3. It always seems like Toronto has to overpay to get players here. Maybe they thought it was a crappy draft coming up? Maybe it's all or nothing right now for the Leafs? I don't know. Maybe Taylor Hall is so sh_t right now that Foligno was considered the more valuable commodity?
  4. That probably speaks volumes about how worthless Taylor Hall has become. Foligno was the captain of the Blue Jackets, so probably more than just a pure numbers guy. My only gripe here is giving up a 1st round pick for a guy who is on an expiring contract. You want to at least get a few years out of someone like Foligno if you give up a 1st to get him. If he does nothing for the Leafs and is let go at the end of the season, then the Leafs will have lost an elite player in the draft for nothing.
  5. I agree that with Buffalo's roster in YOUR division, they were never going to be in the playoffs this season. I think Sabres management probably thought they would be competitive for one of the final playoff spots. For them to be the worst team in the NHL was unexpected. I think if you look at the Flyers going into last season, nobody expected the Flyers to win a division title. They weren't even picked to make the playoffs if I recall correctly. It wasn't until that incredible winning streak that people really started to take notice of them. The Flyers play last season c
  6. Oh and for anyone who's curious, the 60-goal plateau for this season is at: ceiling(60/82x56) = 41 goals
  7. Only one 50-goal season so far. (Last season he finished with 55.) We have to wait until he hits 35 goals this season for it to be back-to-back.
  8. Sorry I couldn't hear you. My team's in first place. What were you saying?
  9. One has to question whether there will be a next season or whether we'll be entering lockdown #4, 5, and 6. At this point there's no reason to think anything will be different, even with the vaccine going out to people. It's not making any difference to the number of new covid cases in Canada for example. I'm thinking the prospect of one more season without fans and the NHL will put a halt to its operations until further notice.
  10. Hang on a minute. Your division has Buffalo, the worst team in the NHL. The Central division has Detroit. The Senators are bad, but they're not the worst team in the NHL. The North division is a division of mostly .500 teams. Playoff bubble teams who either just barely miss the playoffs or just barely get in. Ottawa is the only bad team in the division. If anything, you could say the North division is a division of 7's, 8's, 9's, and 10's, in terms of conference rankings under a normal NHL season. There's no overly powerful teams but there's also no real pushovers either.
  11. You really are grumpy about these divisions aren't you? Now you know how it feels like to be Toronto and have Boston in your division. Too bad you couldn't have Tampa in there as well.
  12. I mentioned Campbell in a previous thread a few months ago that he was going to be Toronto's #1 goalie shortly and here we are. Andersen played his way out of the starting job and Campbell has certainly made the most of his opportunity.
