The Toronto Maple Leafs were smothered by the Columbus Blue Jackets in game one of the playoffs. The Jackets were blocking shots, clogging the lanes, and didn’t allow for the Leafs to generate anything offensively.
Leafs Nation knew the Leafs were in store for a dog fight against Torts and the Blue Jackets but it’s one of their own where the focus lies. Leafs Nation is fed up with defenseman, Cody Ceci. Shocker.
While Ceci struggled his way through game one, the Leafs are blessed with a smooth-skating rookie in Rasmus Sandin, who got a cup of coffee in the regular season and showed flashes of brilliance. A touch overwhelmed at times, Sandin found himself on the outside looking in for game one of the playoffs and after how Ceci performed, taking two penalties and turning the puck over on a regular basis, Leafs Nation is calling for Ceci to be in the press box in hilarious fashion…
imagine having sandin and liljegren and starting cody ceci 🥴🥴

Can the Leafs trade Cody Ceci, Tyson Barrie, and Kyle Dubas to my kids peewee Scarborough AA peewee team for Brad, Hunter and Dave S. Please.

Even a media outlet got in on the fun….
it’s one thing for Cody Ceci to take penalties. but for him to skate BACK into the play after he serves them? man.

Let’s see if Coach Keefe has the stones to take Ceci out of the lineup and inserts Rasmus Sandin for game two. We know there’s a ‘Nation’ calling for it.
