As Leafs fans we often like to fantasize that this team is one or two trades away from being ready to compete for the Stanley Cup. As a seven year old I carried a notebook and a hockey almanac around and would develop what I deemed as fair trades for the Leafs to make in order to ready to win the Stanley Cup. Most of my ideas were multiplayer deals involving Ed Olczyk and Vincent Damphousse going to the Penguins for Mario Lemieux or to the Bruins for Ray Bourque, but I’m still confident that seven year old was still more grounded in reality than your average HFBoards commenter

LGD: Preparing for an Avalanche

So the Leafs opened the season with a solid effort against the Habs, a brutal loss against the Penguins, and an absolutely dominant win against the Rangers. Leafs Nation has had its ups and downs so far as a result, but people have stepped away from the big red button that says “PRESS WHEN THE END IS NIGH” and are a bit more cautiously optimistic. 

Tonight, the Avalanche are in town. Their first two games of the season (both against Minnesota) were pretty bad (the first one especially), but they pushed out a last second victory against the Bruins last night. Like the Leafs, the Avs are a bad possession/high shooting % team. Unlike the Leafs, the Avalanche don’t seem concerned in trying to fix that (although they’ve improved their possession a bit in the last two games). 

Both teams are fast and can score a lot. This should be a fun one.
