LGD: Looking For A Win

The Leafs lost last night, bad. Jerseys were tossed in disgust. It was just ugly. I happened to be there last night, and the crowd was either completely dead or not even remotely pleased with what was happening on the ice. The Leafs were just completely out-classed by a much better Penguins team who ran roughshod over a Leafs system that looks exactly the same as it did last year. In short, the Leafs are just a mess right now, but I'm not sure why people are surprised. This is what the team looks like when you take out-of-this-world goaltending out of the equation. Placed side by side against a contender, it's clear that the Leafs just aren't good enough right now.

The good news is that today's a new day and a new game. The bad news is that it's against another good team playing in their home opener, the Rangers.

A few hours ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs lost their second game of the season to the Pittsburgh Penguins. We learned some things, like that Jonathan Bernier, Phil Kessel, and Stephane Robidas are probably still nursing injuries, because they've been, well, uncharacteristically bad. We learned that Sidney Crosby, unsurprisingly, is still amazing at the sport he's been atop of for years. Lastly, we learned how long it would take for somebody to rage-quit this year's team in public. 

Four days. We are four days into the regular season. Here's the thing about this jersey-tossing statement - it's really stupid.

Ten years. It's been about that long since Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment sat down and decided that having an AHL affiliate three kilometres away from the Air Canada Centre made more sense than having one three thousand away. Over the years, the team has gone from a convince to a competitor, one that has been loaded with youth. Today, the Toronto Marlies opened up yet another season against the Utica Comets, and unfortunately for them, the game ended in a 2-1 loss.
