I am not complaining about losing a bet, this thread is for DIE HARD LEAFS FANS who

I have never been so disgusted by a teams performance over a period of time and that's saying something because I am also a die hard Dolphins fan even more so than the Leafs, leafs darn that they dont even deserve a capital letter in their name. Yes I had $ on this game but I bet 30$ a game so I'm not upset about losing more than I can afford.

But honestly, they have no breakout, no neutral zone possesion, all they can do it dump and barely chase. They get out muscled and overpowered all over the ice. I really don't see ANY improvement since Burke burke took over. Yea our farm team is great so i'll give him credit for that.

How many pros constantly miss the net? Kessel is a ghost out there, our defence look very nervous with the puck (the shady goaltending excuse doesn't work anymore). Ohh but Lupul is out were missing Lupul well every team goes through injuries and they  deal with it.

Sorry for venting but sports are my life. When I am at work all I think about is the game that night. I watch every game when I can't I record it and watch it later. Ahhh I am tired of saying next year is our year, I don't want to wait at least another year to make the show.

I will always be leaf fan but these last few weeks and obviously years have been really tough. No team has fans like leaf fans and we deserve better! leaf haters, I really hope you are enjoying this......next year

You think the Leafs are bad now? You should have seen them in the 80's!

If the last few weeks have you ranting and raving, how about the last 45 years?!  I've become completely desensitized to the Maple Leafs losing.  I just don't care anymore.  If they win, great!  If not, darn it!  I'm use to it now.

They're the Chicago Cubs of the NHL.  They have a die hard, half retarded fan base that thinks they know hockey, but in reality have absolutely no friggin clue what they're talking about.  Having to listen to these jackoffs call these sports shows every morning on the way to work is enough to induce road rage.

They wanted Burke, they got him.  Now look how well this team has done...

I agree but I will add this, did they look like a team that was playing for their lives today? The team really have no heart and passion, its also the organizations fault as a whole for not being able to inject that into the players.

Maybe Don Cherry is right in that this team needs players from Ontario, guys who actually love the leafs and do w.e it takes to win.

All that aside, I think Burke is real problem, he should have fired Ron Wilson long agooo, not 60 something games into the season, he was a terrible coach from the very first season.  Now its too late...maybe next year....lol

I was born in 88 so I remember the Gilmour, Anderychuk, Potvin and so on, then the Sundin days which were not that bad. But now, I don't see anything I like about this team. And I wonder if burke has a problem with Kadri, why are we not playing the kid?

You touched on something else that is very important to a team... IDENTITY!  I have no idea what kind of team this is suppose to be.  I keep hearing all this talk about how Burke likes his teams to be scrappy and tough but I see none of that.  I see a whole bunch of boys pretending to be big men.  That'z all!

This roster has absolutely no connection with the fanbase.  Players that the fans love to watch and cheer for.  You know the names so I'm not going to through them... this team has none of that.....

Oh good Lord, you don't know the half of it when it comes to the perennial losers.

I'm just hoping they win a cup by the time my children are still on this planet.

Verrry late.  I'm proud of myself that i was pioneering the way for all disgruntled LOAF fans.  Yuddles, if you want to buy a house, wait till the losers are officially out and then wager every fukkin penny you have on them.  Guaranteed bc i saw this scenario unfold the last 9 yrs like groundhog day

any correlation between Maple Leafs OWNERSHIP over the years and PERFORMANCE? I gave up on the Blackhawks who were my team when I was a high school kid in Chicago in the early 1960's (old 6 team league). it took them almost 50 years from 1961 to win a Cup (2010) because Billy Wirtz was the CHEAPEST PICK in the NHL. once he passed on and his son Rocky took over (AND was will to SPEND some MONEY), they became respectable again.

I know that old Harold Ballard was a cheeser on a par with Wirtz who ran off some top players over nickle-dime disputes BUT it seems like it's more poor selection of team management with Burke and Wilson rather than failure to spend now days. trading what turned out to be a #2 draft pick to the Bruins for Kessler turned into a disaster when the B's got Tyler Seguin

The Leafs were decent in the mid to late 70's when I got into hockey(1970). As for the 80's I was busy with the military and kids. What I remember most was the awesome playoff series between my Flyers and the Leafs... to me they were classics(because we won).

I do feel your pain... afterall... like I said, I'm a Flyers fan... a Philly fan... We have had a bunch of teams make the finals in thier sports and since the two Flyers Cups we have had NONE for thier 7 trips to the Stanley Cup Finals.

It's just as painful to finish 2nd as it is to finish in last place... Keep your chin up... your still too young to give up.

The Leafs remind me of the Red Sox before 2004, finding new ways to lose and continually break the hearts of the fanbase. Dogs is right though, the 80's Leafs were a lot worse, albeit they had some pretty entertaining players like Wendel, Courtnall, Iafrate,  Leeman, Bester, etc. Just thinking about the last Leaf teams who made the playoffs in the early 2000's, they had these gritty guys like Corson, Tucker and Gary Roberts who were tough, could score, and were a pain in the behind for the opposing team to play against. That's why they knocked out more talented Senators teams year after year. I just don't see the same kind of vibe with this team. If some moves worked out, Burke would look like a genius, but busts like Komisarek, Colby Armstrong and the Kessel trade and giving up those picks really set them back. Maybe Cherry is right, there needs to be more Ontario players who give a garbage, instead of passive American players. Burke has made some bad mistakes, but would still take him over John Ferguson jr. or the current inept GM of equally bad Habs, Pierre Gauthier. At least you don't have Scott Gomez and Kaberle's albatross contracts to deal with.
