It was seven years ago when the Leafs had The Muskoka Five. Five veteran Leafs that were entitled and bad in the room. 

Sound familiar? It should, because the same thing is happening now. Five players currently responsible for this disastrous Leafs team because of how they are bad in the room, bad with media, and bad with winning. Only instead of cottaging up north, they all reside in a cottage of losing and entitlement. 

I dub them The Newskoka Five.

When the Toronto Marlies received Byron Froese on a loan from the Cincinnati Cyclones on December 9th, 2014, The Leafs Nation did not have a piece about the news. We talked about the Leafs being bad (what else is now), and I suggested that Phil Kessel should probably take a couple of games off to rest his probably broken body.

When Froese turned that loan into an AHL contract on January 7th, 2015, The Leafs Nation did not mention it. We were still in a "holy crap they actually fired Randy Carlyle" fueled euphoria, and wrote about literally everything else.

Now, at the three month mark of his arrival we will finally address Byron Froese.

Leafs Postgame: It was 3-1 (and its okay)

Two regular defencemen shut down for the year, replaced by a waiver claim and a rookie who hasn't fared well in the NHL to date. The best centre on the team, (rightfully) scratched for being late for a team meeting. A decimated version of an already bad hockey team, taking on the fourth most successful group of players in the National Hockey League. Should be an easy loss, right? Well, not exactly.
