Spring is here. The Leafs are done.
Eliminated from the playoffs.
Shocking really. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. The Senators and Maple Leafs were headed in different directions when this season started. The Leafs were supposed to be in the playoffs. The Senators were supposed to be in last place.
Less than two weeks left in the season and the Leafs are finished.
What an embarrassment for Toronto.
Coach Ron Wilson got fired and he never should have gotten an extension in the first place. The Leafs have no goaltending and that rests directly on the shoulders of GM Brian Burke.
People criticized the Senators rebuild and unloading last season.
And, here the Senators sit, within two victories of making the playoffs. The Leafs have to be wondering what happened. Why did they collapse so badly?
Poor decisions mainly. Building a team around Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel is not the way to go.
The Senators aren’t in the playoffs yet but they are well on their way.
AN INVENTOR: Senators draft pick Darren Kramer, a tough guy in the WHL, has invented a nifty peanut butter jar. This is on Youtube and somebody on twitter sent me the link. Thought I would post it here. I had heard about this. Never seen it.
