Crazy to think that this regime has won more playoff rounds than the Leafs during the same period. And I mean the last 8 years

Something is wrong in that Leafs locker room.

Forget about their defense for a second.....how do you not shoot more than 10 times on Ayres ? Your first two shots went in....Nylander, Marner, Tavares, Matthews, Kapanen.....WTF ?

Even with a shitty defense, injured goalie situation, interim coach....you still should be able to get more than 10 shots !!!!

Something is not right....they will need to sacrifice one of Tavares-Matthews if rumours are true about locker room feuding

the plan went down the drain when they caved-in to Nylander’s demands, then to Matthews’ demands, then Marner....

Matthews can walk in less than 4 years....WTF?????
And signed Tavares. 33.5M in 3 forwards and still can't beat a Zamboni driver.

The plan was doomed on July 1 , 2018

The rebuild ended that day and created, the cap mess , overpayments , forced trades , and roster juggling for years

They had a solid systemic rebuild in place and it all ended in 10 minutes

Reading their board they seem quite pissed at Tavares and Marner right now.
No need to get pissed at JT . He was a UFA and took the easy way out .

He is too old to be the top dog and chose to work with elite talent .

Bottom line when you hand out these contracts to vets in their late 20`s your gonna get smoked at some point

The idea is great if your built for a cup and you deal with the cap in years 4-7 or 8 later

They didnt need him , offence was fine .

Zach Bogosian has looked terrible this year.

But with another injured member of the Bolts d-corp in Erik Cernak, some added depth was needed.

I guess there is something to be said for adding free depth VS trading assets for depth.

Bargain bin scrapping at it’s finest, Bergevin style.
