21.5% of Athletic hockey writers think the Leafs are overrated. They've got too many old school media types there nowadays.

I mean, really, who overrates the Leafs outside of their fans?
So 21.5% of Athletic hockey writers think the Leafs are worse than a mediocre bubble team? That is the perception of this series -- that the Jackets and Leafs are similar calibre teams because of their regular season record and that this is a coin flip, if not advantage Jackets.

I guess people who say the Leafs are better than their record count. That's like zeke+.

The only way the Leafs perform better than their record suggests is if Fred finds his inner Ed or Campbell can handle a playoff starting role. A big reason for their record is shit goaltending. Leafs were 27th in 5v5 sv%. total shit.

Jackets -- 5th in save %, Leafs bottom of the barrel at 28th. This has received virtually no press in series previews, similar to the Leafs injuries this year and their improvement to an average defensive squad in terms of the skaters.

Yeah, our goaltending is concerning. Really hope we move on from Freddy if he can’t get it done this playoffs.

I just don’t want him back next year if he can’t get it done this year. I guess if he’s ok they could bring him back another year if for some reason they believe in him.

It was good to see Dubas coughing up some decent assets to shore up the goaltending. I never trust management/coaches when they talk about their goaltending. I suspect Fred is on a short leash. Game and a half of shit and he's sitting.

I think he’s going to have a great playoffs, we’ll go deep, maybe even win it, and then all the talk will be about how it can’t be counted as a true postseason performance.

Eh, regular season means squat.
