Maple Leafs 5, Canadiens 2

LeafsI'd like to table something I've been thinking about for a while. In many regards, this is the greatest Leafs season a Leafs fan could possibly hope for. Allow me to explain...

We're all okay with losing this season, so we find a silver lining when the Sabres cream us 5-0. In a typical season, we'd have hated that game. It likely would have bummed me out for days. But this year, it was like water off a duck's back. In fact, I spun it as a positive.

Then, there are nights like last night. We beat the Habs in Montreal on a Saturday night. Young Jedi Luke Schenn scored his first NHL goal, the Jason Blake showcase continued and Tosky looked good. I enjoyed the win.

That means I'm now enjoying wins and losses, and that makes this the greatest Maple Leaf season in the history of the franchise. We can't lose.

I'd bet a season which ended with a Stanley Cup was better. I don't know for sure, since I wasn't alive back then. Still, this season is very interesting for a losing season.
