I wonder at what point Babcock will get the Leafs out of the basement. I’m putting my money on 2018-19.

I almost feel bad for Bernier. He had thre great games in the AHL on conditioning, only to come back and continue to have problems. It’s a bummer for him, really.

As for the Leafs as an organization, they’ll never get out of the basement if they continue the organizational strategy they seem to have embarked on long ago. A lot has to change, from the top on down, and I just don’t see a coach of any stature forcing the organization to shift gears in such a way during the tenure of that contract. It has to be something everyone from MLSE down to the healthy scratch players want.

Apparently Calgary inquired about acquiring Bernier. Not a leafs fan, but GO Sparks!
