Maple Leafs 4, Thrashers 5
I'm actually relieved we salvaged a point at home against the worst team in the conference. That fact tells you all you need to know about this edition of our Toronto Maple Leafs. We're not very good.
In our division, we're only ahead of the Sabres who have played three fewer games. We won three of our first ten games and most were at home against the weaker thans. I fear it's going to get a great deal uglier.
Suddenly fans are awakening to the fact there is little hope and they're demanding John Ferguson Jr. turn in his badge. Friends, this team is doing exactly what we thought they'd do. this isn't a shocking start, in fact, nine points in ten games is pretty much according to spec. Of course JFJ should go, we're in a horrible place. There are no blue chip prospects in the pipeline, our best player is about to turn 38 years old and our defensemen are huge, unmovable liabilities that have us completely handcuffed in this salary cap world.
We should have blown this team up before the lock out.
