What have you seen and experienced the Leafs do since 1987?
Young boys being sexually assaulted in Maple Leaf Gardens. That's probably the highlight. Oh yeah, and Gilmour.
In all seriousness though, one thing that I've found puzzling over the past couple years, is how much shit the Leafs talk about the Canucks "over glorifying" their current core. While there's a legit argument from them in stating that we've never won a Stanley Cup, it's so hypocritical how the majority of Leaf fans put guys like Gilmour, Sundin, Tucker, Clark, Domi, Cujo, etc., on such high pedastols. That core never made a Cup final, and the individual accomplishments and accolades of that team were significantly less than the Canucks' current core.
I'm not going to lie.
The Leafs do have a solid and promising core coming up. I'll give them that much.
However - a lot remains to be seen, and the burgeoning arrogance of repressed Leaf fans is quite unbecoming. Their loss to the Bruins last year was one of the biggest choke jobs in all of sporting history. When the Leafs enter the post-season this year, that ugly episode will be on their minds........and that's not a good thing for them.
