from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

By rights, we ought to feel sorry for the Maple Leafs and their fans. It has been 55 years since they last won the Stanley Cup. They haven’t escaped the first round since 2004. Despite all the Hogtown hoo-haw, they consistently come up small when it matters most.

Coach Sheldon Keefe’s comment that the Leafs “got a lot of respect in the handshake line from that team” is a new low, even for an organization that excels at setting the bar low. Even the sycophantic Toronto media had a tough time swallowing that one.

Meanwhile, Leaf fans and their media brag. They boast. They sneer. They pound their chests and act as though the country’s other six teams are the Washington Generals.

And they lose. Once again, the Leafs and mixed blessing Auston Matthews have an early date on the first tee.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

more hockey talk, mostly on the Habs…

Wow, for all the complaints Jack Todd makes about the Habs having the first pick, and all the uncertainties that come with the #1 overall pick, trade it to Stevie. I am sure he will put it to good use.
