Unrelated mostly but made this observation and it solidifies why Leafs fans are consistently noted as the worst fanbase in the sport:

~4 years ago, Tavares left the Islanders for Toronto. Islander fans were upset and soon came the mantra that they didn’t need Tavares.

In the first three years after this move, the Leafs famously continued their 1st round exits (one of those being the COVID-induced qualifying round so technically they didn’t even qualify). Regardless, its a total of 5 years in a row of no playoff series victories.

The Islanders on the other hand, lost in the 2nd round, lost in the conference finals, and lost in the conference semis in the immediate 3 years after losing Tavares. That’s 4 series wins.

2021-2022 is year 4, playoffs on the horizon. Last night, the Leafs beat the Islanders to officially eliminate them from playoff contention. Of course, *now* is when the bozos come out talking about how the leafs are better without Lou (who made a similar move) and making fun of Islanders fans for saying they didn’t need Tavares; just totally ignoring the last 3 years. The Leafs need to go back to 2002 before they can even counter *one* of those years of playoff success.

I guess when you’re used to failure, you gotta make up wins to get you through.

Thought it was pretty funny, but I guess if you aren’t going to get your player’s assistance revenue from headshots, you gotta get it from elbow tugs.

Brazal was protecting and keeping him out of harms way.

That’s actually hilarious
