NHL 2018/19 - season of the Maple Leaf

Yeah the wildcard is chokiness though. You just don't know. Playoffs are a different thing. Maybe they're a chokey choke team. It doesn't even have to be the whole team. Even if it's just the goalie who cracks under pressure - that can derail the whole thing.

Not that I would call last year's lack of results a choke exactly - but with mostly the same roster they didn't even get to the final so . . . . :dunno:


But if I must make a call - and I feel I must because what kind of equivocating wimp would I be if I didn't? - they look crazy-strong in all areas and unbelievably consistent and I'll take TBL +225

I'll tell you who I do NOT feel are any kind of legit contender: The Toronto Maple Leafs.

They have lots of flash and talent no doubt but they are just hilariously bad in their own zone. Soft, dumb.

Forecheck 'em - they're fucked.

If ever there was an act that was built for the regular season and not the playoffs ---> them.

Knowing how big of a Leafs fan you are, even thinking that has got to sting a little.

You're not considering jumping ship here, are you Muddy??

Tavares has 4 goals tonight giving him 45 for the season.

I think I am ready to declare that free agent acquisition: good.

Good chance of big fight from Philly in the 3rd here.

better chance of a 3-1 Carolina win and another very silly victory celebration from them.
