It's been a tough week for the Leafs. One minute they were being crowned a dynasty after throttling the Bruins, then tumbled about as far as any team could since. All of the worst elements of this team have come to the surface in the last three games, none more important or unsurprising than the fact that they just can't play defence. Everything started to boil over last night when the team dropped a 9-2 decision to the Predators, suffering the worst loss of any NHL club this season.

I'm not even going to give this post the privilege of being called a "Leafs Postgame", because that would imply that the Toronto Maple Leafs showed up to play a hockey game tonight. This wasn't a hockey game. This was a joke.

It's an all-out hockey nerd-fest as Sportsnet's Ken Reid came in to talk about his book Hockey Card Stories and Brad Krysko from CloutsnChara.com came in to talk about making a living off of hockey cards.

Pekka Rinne will probably win the Vezina.
Filip Forsberg will probably win the Calder.
These are two very good players who are making the Nashville Predators a very good hockey right now. Throw in James Neal who is proving he can still put up a decent number of points without Malkin, Mike Ribiero, who is proving that you don't need to be likeable to be good at hockey, and a very good blueline and the Predators are winning hockey games despite being near the bottom of the league last year.
The Leafs on the other hand are coming off the most embarrassing loss imaginable, have lost their last two, and most importantly are dealing with Phil Kessel not being liked by the media.
