There’s going to be a lot of bridges wondering where their trolls went.
Fwiw, I think the Leafs take this series easily. I personally think the Leafs are a top 3-4 team in the league, even with the atrocious defence. They just never got it going this year. With the injuries and Babcock firing, a lot went wrong and they never hit their stride. But they had almost a month to get it all back on track and work out any issues. Mikheyev is a massive addition, we’ll see what Robertson brings, I have a feeling he’ll excel. Some teams seem to be taking this post season more seriously than others, and the Leafs seem to be humming along like a finely tuned sports car.
Will they win the race, or crash and burn on the final lap?
The Leafs may be among the most talented teams in the league. The question is heart, desire and goaltending.
