The Leafs, who two weeks ago were in third-place in the conference and had a nine-point cushion on the ninth-place teams, have now lost six straight games in regulation and are in a four-way tie for the final two playoff spots (though technically they are sitting in 10th-place, because they have played two more games than the seventh-place Columbus Blue Jackets and eighth-place Detroit Red Wings and one more than the ninth-place Washington Capitals).


Not sure why these sites have it wrong...

Perhaps they are worried about rocks flying at the centre of the universe?

They may be going by ROW.?????

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

EDIT: I was wrong... Caps and TO both have same GP, TO sits comfortably in 9th.


Pretty sure you were right the first time (TO has played one more game than Wash).

I think it was my mistake for going to TSN to check the standings. They updated the stats, but for some reason didn't want to update the GP. Maybe being soft on the Toronto Sports Network audience?????

Either way, they have fixed their mistake now.

TO still has some very winnable games, and their Saturday night matchup with Detroit could be telling. What could be extra exciting is the possibility of some Canadian teams outside the playoffs driving a nail into their coffin: TO plays Calgary, Winnipeg and Ottawa in their final 8 games.

I guarantee that this wouldn't have been the case if the Canucks or Les Habitants were in a similar situation.

Sad but true.

What's even sadder is that TSN and Torontonians trash Vancouver and Montreal so much (often in politically correct and indirect ways), and then are the first ones to chant, "Gooooo Canada Gooooo" every 4 years.

Not because they are actually patriotic, or care about the rest of Canada, but because they want to prove to other Canadians and the rest of the world that they are more patriotic than their fellow country-men.

That's how they play the game.

Oh please. Stop acting that it doesn't go both ways.

And BTW, TSN craps on the Leafs more than they ever would Vancouver. Let me remind you, the night Chicago won the cup the front page story on "The Toronto Sports Network" was "Toronto Biggest Losers". Yeah, nothing but Leaf love...

It was the TSN cover story in June, 2010 the night the Hawks won the cup.

Gaunce - 7th overall

Tank it baby and keep on adding to the pool

Trade Kesler
