My brother yesterday told me he's happy when the Leafs lose, because we're supposed to be losing at this point in the building process. I'm sorry, but I can't do that. I really, really wanted to beat the Sens Saturday night. When Poni scored our 3rd goal, you could have heard my yell in Scarborough.
I've seen this terrible team play eight games, and now I'm questioning all my doom-n-gloom predictions. Ron Wilson has this team playing way over their heads. They're fast, they're playing for ice time and they're earning points. The Maple Leafs have won two straight and earned points in five of six games.
For better or worse, this season is already more fun than last season. We might just have to accept the possibility of a playoff race.
