Playoff Scenarios

April 04 2011 09:19AM

Currently in 10th place, (37-32-10, 32 ROW), There are two playoff spots the Leafs can grab. Here's how they can do it:

7th place: Buffalo Sabres - 90 pts (40-29-10, 35 ROW)

ROW is wins in either regulation or OT. It's the new first tiebreaker. To catch the Sabres the Leafs need to beat Washington, New Jersey and Montreal before the shootout and the Sabres need to lose their remaining three games in regulation. One missed point by the Leafs or one gained point by Buffalo and it's over.

If the Leafs win out without the shootout they'll have 90 points and 35ROW. That would take us to the second tie breaker: points earned in head to head games. The Leafs are 3-2-1 against Buffalo this season, good for 7pts. Buffalo is 3-3-0 vs. Toronto for only 6pts.

Buffalo's schedule is: Tampa, Philly and @ Columbus. Tampa and Philly haven't done us many favors so far and Columbus are pretty terrible.

Leafs' growth together key to Burke plan

Steve Lansky
April 02 2011 08:21AM

I’m not sure I agree with the decision Brian Burke made this past week to announce that Ron Wilson would be back behind the Maple Leafs’ bench for another season (based on his career work in the NHL) – but it’s clear why he did it. Burke wants to remind his young squad that he’s in favour of stability. Not security. Stability. Two vastly different things. He wants the boys to know that, when they come to camp next September, they’ll continue to grow together. And there is really no better way to build a team - although it can be the tough way in today's cap era.
