Just hoping the Bruins stay on this roll through the playoffs. Looking really good right now.

I don't know what's worse, putting up with a losing team or obnoxious Montreal fans... oh wait I know

You know what pisses me off the most? In typical Leaf fashion, they are probably going to win all the remaining games when it’s too late to actually get in the playoffs but they will get enough points to just be outside looking in with the worst possible draft pick. Fuck, kill me now.

Hey I mean you could get a good draft pick and still do nothing with it...

It *could* be worse.

You could not be more right. It *could* be worse.

Makes me appreciate my team.

It's crazy to think a team filled with #1 overall picks needs to be blown up, but that's definitely the case for Edmonton if you ask me. Too many youngsters at once is a bad thing.

More like mediocre draft in total... holy hell. I just took a look at Toronto's drafts since 2008 (essentially, the Burke era).

6 drafts
37 players drafted
813 games played (433 by Luke Schenn)
4 full time NHLers
2 currently with Toronto


Naturally this is an incomplete report as all has not been said and done on players from 2009 on, but the picture on draft classes 2010 and before are starting to clear up. It's mid 2014, and their draft class from 2010 has 1 NHL game played. That's horrendous.

I say this fully understanding that good teams like Detroit get plenty of time to keep their players in the system... but that's definitely not Toronto. That organization needs to learn how to farm their own players, and compliment them with free agent additions. Not just hit the buy and sell button.
