Groundhog Day in Toronto

From Damien Cox at the Toronto Star,

Folks, something is going to have to give here. Whether it’s a big trade or a management shakeup, it seems unthinkable that even MLSE and its barely engaged board of directors will simply allow another season to limp along with two wins here, a couple of blowout losses there, an overtime triumph and then a couple more defeats.

This is the last two non-playoff seasons being played over again one more time. This is Groundhog Day, the hockey version.

It was the fifth time in nine home games the Leafs have allowed five goals or more to the opposition, an outrageous record.

That’s not an opinion. It’s a fact.
