Relive the 2005-2006 Toronto Maple Leafs Season

If we're being honest with ourselves, this season was really the catalyst that brought about the steaming tire fire Shanahan finally managed to (hopefully) put out this summer. 

Yes, the team finished the season with over .500 pts%. They also missed the playoffs, made a lot of really insignificant trades to jump-start everyone after a season away from the game, and then kind of became embroiled in a lot of Pat Quinn drama (that, if we're honest, has never really ended). Some key injuries kind of derailed the season, but the front office tension caused by John Ferguson's very existence in Leafsland overshadowed what wasn't altogether that awful of a year. 

Oh, and then the Leafs did a thing at the 2006 Draft... but let's not talk about that yet.

The 2003-04 Toronto Maple Leafs represent the last time that the Toronto Maple Leafs were actually a good hockey team. Not sneak-into-the-playoffs-and-lose-to-the-Bruins good, but actually a really solid team (with nice hair, too). A true Stanley Cup contender that loaded up at the trade deadline for a deep run, the Leafs ultimately came up short. It's not a stretch to say that they haven't recovered since.
