Leafs Meet The Media

from TSN,

Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis said that the team's collapse "doesn't diminish the steps we took as an organization."

He added that in Game 1 against Boston his team looked like a "deer in the headlights", but after that "we didn't have a player who took a night off."

Nonis also said that at this point he believes that James Reimer will be back as the team's number one goalie next season.

In terms of Bozak, who is now an unrestricted free agent, Nonis explained that if the team can find a contract for him that makes sense they will sign him.

But Nonis issued a reminder that, "the (salary) cap is going down, and how we allocate our dollars is very important if we're going to remain competitive."

In other words fellow Leaf fans…Look for another season of heartache. Another year full of Phaneuf’s game costing give aways or goals being scored while he pretends to be a pylon! Another season without a top line center with the excuse this time being the salary cap. Add to that; and don’t get me wrong, I like Reimer, but if he isn’t spectacular, he is simply mediocre. Too many soft goals at inopportune times. Am I being a pessimist? Duh…. yup! Am I happy they made the playoffs - yes! Is anyone happy with the way they threw it all away? Didn’t think so.
