Maybe I'm crazy, but I like the direction Burke is taking the team in.
What do you think? Can they make the playoffs? Win the cup? Get the 1st overall draft pick?
They might make the playoffs... but personally I think they are a year or two away from that...
Certainly don't think they'll "win" the first pick.... but it'll take a while to gel...
Having said that, I've been wrong before...
I think it's going to be Pens and Red Wings for a third straight year in the Stanley Cup Finals -- neither team lost much except Hossa. And we saw what switching from the Pens to Wings did for him. Poor guy!
Lol! NO WAY will they win. They've made such a big deal off signing this one guy Phil Kessel, who've I've never heard of before he joined the Leafs. They have no stars on their team, no propects (other then Nazem Kadri who they sent back down to the minors in a very dumb move on their part).
But hey, The Leaves management don't care as they are still raking in the money for the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan (which owns half of Ontario). They aren't going to make any significant moves to win until Leaf fans start hurting them in the bottom-line. If quite a few regulars would cancel their season tickets or not go to games for a while, then maybe we'll see some changes made.
