As for the Leafs, we're certainly not much better than last year right now but the offseason just started. If we go into the season with the exact same team as we have now then I'll be very disappointed. If we manage to make a few trades and fix up our roster than Ill have some hope for a playoff spot this season. We do have some nice, young players.... JVR, Kessel, Lupul, just to name a few. Edmonton is clearly in good shape because they had 3 first overall draft picks. You give that to ANY team in the league and they would end up being good over time. Anyone else remember when the Penguins SUCKED? Pre-Crosby/Malkin?
