Leafs First Team in the NHL to Have a Bye Week? (And it sucks.)


Recommended Posts

Whether the NHL has bye weeks officially or not, the Leafs have had one this week..... and it pisses me off. :angry:  The Leafs haven't played a game since December 8 (Tuesday). Their next game isn't until December 15 (Tuesday).


I think this is a terrible idea. This isn't the NFL. Hockey players are used to playing every few days, not once a week. It doesn't make any sense. They get a break at Christmas, another during the ASG, another during Olympic/World Cup tournaments, and then the entire playoffs (for Leafs players only).


A one week layoff is only going to kill momentum and take players out of their zone.

I'm dyin' here too. For the record, I'm also not in favor of the bye week. 


On a slightly related note - I took a look at the Marlies' schedule and they have 3 games in a row, back to back to back this week.. go figure.
