LGD – Bad vs. Worse

Today should have been a great day. With the Edmonton Oilers in town, it would have been the perfect opportunity to make fun of such a terrible, miserable, no good organization that hasn’t won crap for years and can’t seem to pull themselves out of the NHL’s basement despite first overall pick after first overall pick after first overall pick.

But no. The Toronto Maple Leafs had to go and lose their franchise record eleventh game in a row last night. They’re just as terrible, miserable, and no good an organization than the Oilers. We’ve reached the lowest of lows here, people.

The Leafs

We don’t really have a clue what’s going on here. Dion Phaneuf has been placed on the IR, Cody Franson is a gametime decision, Jonathan Bernier is sick. Petter Granberg and Antoine Bibeau have been recalled from the AHL. Practically nobody was at this morning’s optional skate. This whole situation is a mess right now.

The Oilers

Taylor Hall and Benoit Pouliot will both miss tonight’s games with injuries. So, hey, wow… If you thought that Leafs lineup looked bad…

Even if Bernier is sick, I can’t imagine they throw Bibeau to the wolves, or uh, Oilers.

What They’re Saying

    “The Toronto Maple Leafs had to go and lose their franchise record eleventh game in a row last night. They’re just as terrible, miserable, and no good an organization than the Oilers.”

    11 games huh? Ya the oilers did that earlier this year. It’s hard, but you don’t have to say such lies. No one is as terrible, miserable, and no good an organization as the oilers!! They haven’t won a game in 11 and yet they still have 8 more wins then the oilers!! Mind numbing.

    I’m not saying the leafs are good, but to say they’re as terrible of an organization as the oilers is flat out ridiculous! You gotta understand just how long and how pathetic the oilers have actually been before you start comparing anything to it. There are only a handful of teams throughout history in all of sports that have been as pitiful as the oilers have been this last decade.

    So please don’t compare anyone to the oilers after a losing streak. It’s unfair

    Thats ok the oilers will never make the playoffs. They’ll even find a way to lose the draft lottery and up not getting McDavid. The leafs may put us through hell, but at they’re not Edmonton.
