So how come the Leafs stink?

The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs spent this past week celebrating the game of hockey in the best way they saw fit; by taking the sport back to its roots and playing a bunch of games outdoors. Representing The Leafs Nation for a few days, and Pension Plan Puppets for another, I made my way and crossed the border for a few days to see what the fuss was about. The following is part one of several posts detailing my trip.

Just a note to those of you not in on the joke. When the Leafs are behind, oftentimes you'll see our Twitter account retweet something like this:
I knew Reimer should of been in net— olivia trivisonno (@livtriv) January 5, 2014
@Ryguy6610 I feel so bad for bernier, Randy should of pulled him after the third goal...— Cody (@Codizel55) January 5, 2014
Wtf. They should of pulled bernier after the 4th goal— Aj Qurashi (@CRAZYAjQue) January 5, 2014
To all the grammar freaks out there, we're aware that the correct word in the situation is "should have" and not "should of". But that's why we do it. The grammar irregularity serves as a way of highlighting the absurd. Sure, I could James Reimer could of started tonight, and maybe Tim Gleason should of been in the lineup. Also if Clarke MacArthur would of stayed with the Leafs maybe they wouldn't be struggling for scoring as much as they are this season.
I feel the need to explain our editorial use of "should of" because how else would you tee up this loss? Toronto dropped a game to the New York Rangers, a team that was chasing them in the standings, 7-1, and it could have been 8-1 if not for a goal waived off to goaltender interference in the dying seconds.

I thought about what picture to use for this post for a while. Maybe something from the Winter Classic? Maybe something of Henrik Lundqvist looking dapper?
No. It's the second half of the season. The Winter Classic is in the past. It's all about the standings now.
