Let’s call a spade a spade – the beginning of the 2009-2010 Leafs season isn’t going quite as well as I thought (I’m guessing it hasn’t gone exactly according to Hoyle for Brian Burke either). There’s many out there in Leafs Nation ready to scale the CN tower and see how long the free fall actually is. I kid you not, from the scuttlebut that I hear some fans care that darn much. If you can count yourself as one of these suicidal Leaf fans let me put your mind at ease friend.
Despite beginning the season winless and facing a horrible 5 game road trip, all is not lost. Trust me my friend, It’s time for you to look at the positives of the Leafs abysmal start.
Though the many columns in the papers, the thousands of radio calls into the talk shows and countless blogs entries (you can bet most of the blog entries are better than the one you are currently reading) would have you believe that Leafs have been entirely rancid up to this point in the season, I’m here to tell you that this notion isn’t entirely true.
You see friend, the Leafs may have lost all of their games thus far, but on the bright side they haven’t given up a lead. That’s right, as pitiful as they have been they haven’t given up a lead all season. Name another NHL team (if you still consider the Leafs an NHL team) that hasn’t given up a lead all season.
Grant it the Leafs haven’t had a lead all season, but potatoe – potato. Don’t rain on my parade. Considering the start they have had it will be again the only parade the Leafs will be take part in for me this season.
