I am no hockey expert but generally when a team puts a touchdown on you in hockey it isn’t great for team morale. My dude above is in his feelings and he sounds like all of my uncles when they talk about the Leafs. However my uncles are saying the same thing but are stress smoking a full pack of darts as they scream about lineup decsions and the lack of production from an 11 million dollar player.
It’s the same story year in and year out and I love the drama. Sorry Leafs Nation.
Do I want to the Toronto Maple Leafs to make a Stanley Cup run? Of course I do. The Toronto Maple Leafs are like any other legacy team such as the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees or Los Angeles Lakers. The league is better when they are good.
I’m not 100% sure on this but I think the Toronto Maple Leafs directly effect Rogers and Sportsnet’s bottom line because viewership for the Stanley Cup Playoffs drops off drastically as soon as the Leafs make their classic first round exit. Then Sportsnet magically lays off 100 employees in the dog days of summer.
Dean and the fellas ran through a SMALL sample size of Oilers and Leafs fanbases twitter meltdowns after their game 4 losses.

I understand the Leafs do this every single year but this year they have home ice advantage with 3 games left. They still all things considered are in the drivers seat.
Leafs fan Chris wants to see them slay the dragon and move onto the second round. It makes nights more exciting having a game to look forward to watching.
Content Chris wants them blow it so hard so Twitter explodes and we can sell our Decades of Disapointment t-shirt line. At the end of the day I am here for the content and the best content CLEARLY is when they lose in heartbreaking fashion.
Only time will tell and tomorrows game in Toronto is YUGE. Buckle up Leafs Nation and for god sakes can someone get this kid some Prozac?
