Leafs have been the best team in hockey since January 1 when Sid suffered his concussion... (which may be why they are # 1 and not # 2) ...they are on pace to be the Champions of 2011 calendar year (whatever the frick that's worth)...

Has been the best addition for this team for faceoffs. 3rd in the league. This team needed a faceoff guy bad for years. I always said it.
Once Reimer gets back the PK will be better.

you're all class Pucks, all class - then again the Wings are the Old Money of the NHL nowadays so it must come easily  

...hope to see you around here more often.

5-7-1 since the OP..... not suprised....they are still at (within 2 spots) of the same positions from the OP..... this wasn't hard to see coming, I think they will continue to play .500 hockey the rest of the year.

I think leafs make the playoffs, barely...but would be more than willing to wager they do not finish higher than the Rangers in the final standings. 

Not to say I dont like them to come in and surprise the Rangers tonight....just not a better team in the long run....especially if the Rangers get Staal back and stay reasonably healthy

hey happy cap take off you blue googles and realize they are overachieving... 

They are no lock for the playoffs. They have a shot but more then likely 9th 10th place is awaiting them.

Enjoy it

Leafs are currently 29-27-4-3 and 4 points out of a playoff spot in the east..... A far car from 4th, 5th or 6th Happy

That's a microcosm of the leafs season in tonight's game. Early hope, terrible finish and meaningless garbage goal.
