Here We Go Again #LeafsHeartacheRedux

leafsIt's February in Toronto. That can only mean one thing. It's time for the Leafs to tease us by flirting with a playoff drive, only to come up a little short.

I watched last night's game against the Habs and found myself cheering as if it was a playoff game. I wanted that one, almost as badly as I wanted Kessel to get a hat trick.

The big win over the hateful Habs has us 4 points out of the playoffs with only Buffalo and Carolina in the way. Check out these hopeful standings.

Normally, when we make our February drive to the promised land only to come up short, we screw ourselves. We miss the playoffs and lose out on a lottery pick in the draft. This season, there's absolutely no downside to this tease. We're only screwing the Bruins.

It's win-win. Go Leafs Go!

What I don't like about these standings is that Buffalo has two games in hand and we can never beat them. At least it'll make things fun.

I'm not falling for this playoff business until I see we've made it, the math is varified and game 1 starts. I shall not be suckered this time.

Let's be realistic - forget the playoffs and be happy if we don't hand Boston another top 3 pick in the draft. We're young and have some solid pieces to build on. That's more than I've been able to say for a long, long time.

Well, that game sucked last night. If Carey Price would have started, we would have won. That was no good the Habs lost. Go Habs.

You've gone and done it Mike, blogging about the Leafs. Now they're sure to lose.

Let's review...

Carolina got zero points last night.

Buffalo got one point last night.

Leafs got one point last night.

It could have been much worse! We actually gained a point on the 8th place team, although I agree we should have gained two.

Sorry Mike...you did it again.

Stop it!

Not fair!

4 points were available this weekend and we got 2.

Not great, but not a disaster. Remember, Carolina got 0.

Maybe my entry got us 2 points instead of costing us 2 points....
