I was on /r/Leafs a few days ago combing through some posts, and I saw a discussion about what the worst trade in Toronto Maple Leafs history could be. There’s much debate over this one, but in reality, I don’t think it’s as close as people think.

The Toronto Maple Leafs hav
e won a game. In the National Hockey League. The game winner came from you-know-who. This is not a drill, this is not April Fools
. This is a thing that actually happened, for the first time since March

Like most days of the week, the guys at Hockeycentral at Noon were doing their jobs and talking about hockey. Darren Millard threw out a question (thanks in order to Tyler Dellow for quoting it), as a radio host trying to explain the Leafs' collapse would do.
"Is (Phil) Kessel starting to get a reputation as disappearing when the pressure's on?"
This, in my opinion, can be answered, without blinking with a massive NO. But I blinked a lot and showed my math below.

That tweet was written on October 29th, after the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated Edmonton 4-0 in Edmonton. The next night, Toronto was in Calgary on the second half of a back-to-back, and rather than the Calgary Flames give the writer of that particular tweet a large helping of crow, Toronto defeated Calgary 4-2 despite being out-shot 43-22 and out-attempted 76-49.
Since then however, Toronto has gone 26-28-8 with, incredible, just 15 of those 26 wins coming in regulation.
Just perhaps, the Maple Leafs need to fairly beat the Calgary Flames before the curse can be lifted and the team can get back to its winning ways. There isn't a lot of time left, with six games left, the Leafs not only needing to surpass two of Detroit, Columbus and Washington, but also fend off late attacks from New Jersey and Ottawa, who are both within a game in hand of passing the Leafs in the standings.
Hold on to your butts.

The Leafs drive me a little nuts and I yelled and screamed about them on the radio.
