Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

I remember back in 1967 when the Leaves won the cup.

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

deja 💩 all over again

god bless the sports radio hosts who will be repeating chapter and verse of the same old same old " for the big game you need your best players to be your best players" "Carey Price got better and better and he got in their heads" etc all Tuesday and into Wednesday on Toronto's airwaves.

Cannot wait to hear the three amigos on TSN's OverDrive show break down the Leafs breakdown and ask then answer the big question "if they had Tavares are we looking at a different story and Toronto heading off to play Winnipeg"

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

One of the best lines I heard, The Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team that can make a Cleveland Browns fan feel lucky.

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

I'm not a hockey fan, so I have no real stake in this. But as terrible as the loss is for Leaf fans, I'd much rather they win it in a non-COVID year. And that goes for anyone who winds up taking the Cup home. 

Consider: 

The Leafs played the same 6 teams over and over and over and over all season ad nauseam, thanks to the virus. They never once faced Boston, Pittsburgh, Washington, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Colorado, or any of the other challengers in the league. How does that represent a fair and real season? Would they still have been in first place in their division if they had to play some of the better U.S. teams? We'll never know, but it's a legitimate question. 

Whoever wins the Stanley Cup this year, it will always come with an asterisk. I would hope Leafs or any hockey fans would want a real regular season to sort out the champion and, as hungry as the locals are, not get it like this.

Maybe next year and if it IS next year, at least it won't have that "yeah, but..." added on to it.

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

What's the difference between and Habs fan and a Leaf fan...

Habs fans can watch past Stanley Cup championships in colour.

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

Why do the Leafs always drink out of a glass???
Because the Habs have all of the cups...

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

I was going to try for "how many Leaf players does it take to screw in a lightbulb" and then come up with a punchline about how even if they get the lightbulb in, it won't work because there's no power (play) but I can't be bothered to work hard enough to complete the joke strongly (just like the Leafs)

I thought exactly the same all season long ... actually HOPING they wouldn't make it. I don't want to see them win a cup after what, IMO, amounts to a season of exhibition games. When (if, sigh) they next win a cup, it should be under a relatively comparable scenario as the last number of years. Anyhow, this ain't your grampa's 6-team NHL anymore (I enjoyed that too, but it's done like dinner).

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

Looking at the latest ratings released today from Numeris, the hockey playoffs didn't make the top 30 rated shows in English Canada May 17-23 2021. This is very strange since the playoffs have been showing up every week with reasonably healthy ratings.  In Quebec playoff games were rated #2 week of the 17th to 23rd. .  Did Numeris make a mistake this week with the English top 30?

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

Just think, the last time the Leafs won the Cup, CHUM-FM was still playing classical music.

Maybe next year.

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

The Leafs last won the Stanley Cup so long ago that:

- LBJ was President
- Star Trek had just finished its first season
- The Beatles hadn't yet released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, though they would do so later the same month
- Highway 401 hadn't yet been completed in Eastern Ontario

Re: .......and the Leafs choke once again,

Back when the Leafs played the Flyers in the playoffs in the mid 1970's, I always remember the Philadelphia Signman aka Dave Leonardi, holding one up that  simply stated "Even though It's Spring, Leafs are Falling" Still works in 2021.
