    Unhappy Leafs Eliminated from Playoffs

    Hi to All

    The expected finally happened as Tampa sealed their fate with a Win last night over Carolina.

    My beloved Leafs had finally put it together in the last month, but too little too late. They really sealed their own fate by lacklustre play throughout most of the season.

    Their back to back losses to Montreal was a real crusher.

    A shakeup in the off Season is in order and imho Ferguson must go.

    Next Season will be the 40th Anniversary since the Leafs last hoisted the Stanley Cup and they must compete in 06/07.

    2 Games left with a Buffalo Game today at 5pm. Will be watching this one as the Tucker hit will perhaps be avenged.

    Off to my Moms house for Easter with the Family and some good grub.

    Hope you All have a wonderful Easter as well.

    I am counting down until they release the playoff schedule for the first round. I have tickets to the Wings Round 1 game 1 and I would like to be able to get the day off work without too much of a hassle. I also have tickets to Round 2 game 1 ... they better not decide to choke in the first round.

    CableDude
    Ferguson must go imho and with him about 5 others as well. Good crop of kids coming up but a major trade needs doing. They should drop McCabe and go after Chara big time.

    Tues...Leafs last game of the Season is the Pens. You have to hang in their and with their draws you will be a contender next season.

    Yeah after the Canucks were elminated last Thursday the hockey season pretty much came to an end for me.

    It sucks there will be no playoff action for either teams. I was really hoping for all 6 Canadian teams to make it this year.

    Ah well at least now Canucks, and maybe Toronto, will get the message that some changes are needed.

    Can't wait till next Season.

    Hi *cho*, CoolJ, Croc & zooner

    *cho*
    One of my Picks to Win the Cup at Seasons start. Big letdown there. Next year Eh!

    A very low class display by Peters, a marginal player at best. He spent more time Showboating than he normally gets Ice time. A Jerk!

    What happened to Sportsmanship & Respect? Clowns like this are not needed in the Game imho. Being bounced was well deserved.

    The Sabres where the better Team for sure. A well deserved Win.

    Croc
    Pleased to hear your Guys are doing well Croc.

    My Leafs had bad chemistry from the start of the new year unfortunately and dug a hole they couldn't get out of. Next year Eh!

    Buffalo shut out Toronto 6-0. They Won decisively and deservedly so imho.

    Thanks Fellas and Good Luck to Buffalo in the Playoffs.

    Sorry about the elimination, Minir. We will probably make the play-offs, although I doubt pass the first round...

    The good thing is, at least we should make the play-offs after winning the Cup... The Bucs won the Superbowl and didn't make it to the play-offs the following year. That suXored...


    Anyway, GO LIGHTNING!!!

    Hi Ken & AAF Striker


    Ken
    Thanks Ken.

    Hard to repeat Ken. The value of key players goes up & they usually go elsewhere unfortunately.

    Minir,

    The fat lady is singing. Thrashers couldn't get it done to keep the dream alive. I was hoping they could have made the miracle happen and knocked the slipped in past the Lightning.

    Detroit really stunk it up tonight against Dallas. They got a few things going their way in the 3rd to win - but they deserved to lose. I have seen 10 year olds play better than how they played tonight. Sloppy passes, poor shooting, lack of shooting, bad skating ... general confusion. Then again we did have a few key players sitting out, but I still expect the highest of performances. The Wings were very fortunate that one of the Dallas goals was disallowed, because it was clearly a goal. They ruled that the referee has intended to blow his whistle before it went in the net. It was going to be a damn quick whistle if he got it off in time anyway, because the puck was not even covered and I don't think he really lost sight of it.

    Hi AAF Striker

    Too bad about the Thrashers. Detroit have a Team to watch though. We didn't have a single Game against them this year and it was too bad as it deprived us of seeing first hand what they are doing. Stupid inter division schedule has to go.

    From what i read and see in replay they look strong.

    Thanks AAF Striker.
