Hockey's back.

The season gets going tonight for the Leafs in Ottawa, and that means we need to tidy some things up here at the site, including passing along our final standings predictions. I mean, we've covered this team in detail all summer, but the standings seem sort of important, do they not? 

Some of us may be overconfident in our outlook for this group, others are perhaps terrified of predicting any kind of success. But either way, we all have opinions on what kind of season this is going to be for the ol' blue-and-white before real life proves us right or wrong.

Considering you're reading this site right now, I have little doubt at some point in your life you've checked your email to see a friend, or colleague, or even family member has sent the dreaded Leafs Joke. You'll read the subject line that says something like "FW: FW: laffs fans..." or "FW: RE: FW: the last time teh leafs won the cup", and you know what you're in for. It all comes from that same vault of garbage jokes and pixelated memes you're now accustomed to.
