Nobody likes the Toronto Maple Leafs. Stephen Brunt called them the least likeable team in hockey, fans aren't showing up to the games anymore, and even the players are beating up on other players.
And if cute movies about love and self-worth have taught me anything, it's that the Leafs are in desperate need of a makeover. They'll never impress anybody by simply being themselves, so something's gotta change!

Well, that was unexpected.
The Toronto Maple Leafs continued their winning ways this evening, downing the Tampa Bay Lightning by a score of 3-1. Their second win in a row, the Leafs played pretty well for being the least likeable group of athletes that Sportsnet's Stephen Brunt has ever been around.
Man, I don't know about all that nonsense. For one, teams are always more likeable when they're winning hockey games. There's certainly some players I could do without, but what fan out there actually likes every single roster piece on their favourite team?
When it comes to the Leafs, there's actually more pieces I like than dislike. Phil Kessel, Morgan Rielly, Nazem Kadri, Jake Gardiner, James van Riemsdyk and both goaltenders. I like them all.

Sure, the Toronto Maple Leafs are coming of their first victory since what feels like the Middle Ages, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. The Leafs will host the Tampa Bay Lightning this evening, one of only five teams in the league that have already clinched a playoff berth, so I certainly hope you weren't looking for a winning streak.

Eric Brewer? Are you [expletive] kidding me?
The Toronto Maple Leafs took a pause on being horrible tonight, snapping a seven-game losing streak and downing the Ottawa Senators 4-3 in overtime.

It'd been a while (like, a couple hours?) since Don Cherry accused the Toronto Maple Leafs organization of being college hockey homers, but alas, here we are again.
During tonight's Coach's Corner segment, Cherry railed against the Leafs for not calling up Marlies leading scorer Connor Brown, while signing Casey Bailey and fast tracking that filthy American to the National Hockey League.
"Now, I want to say something about the Leafs," Cherry began. At this point, I should have just turned the television off, or thrown it out the window, but instead I decided I'd transcribe what followed.
More past the jump...
