What the Leafs should do if they actually want a good team this summer.

If the Leafs want a good team next season, then they don’t have to do alot. The last few seasons they have had a prettty good team, they just haven’t built on it. Last season they didn’t really do anything besides drafting Tlustly and getting Raycroft. This season they aren’t really in a different situation. Both years they finished 9’th and rellied on a different team to get them in, unfortunatley both years the team they wanted to win didn’t win.

Strong rookie class

Next year’s rookie class will be very good. No one stands out like Crosby or Ovechkin, but there are some very good players.

Wings Will Need Help to Stay Near the Top

The Detroit Red Wings were close, but close is definitely not good enough in Hockeytown. Nothing less than a championship will suffice in Detroit. Well the fans will have to wait another year for another crack at it after losing out to the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Final.

The Cup

The first game of the cup was fantastic. While i think Ottawa outplayed the ducks, i don’t think they deserved to win. The officiating was once again a joke. Neither announcer has the balls to say if a call is bad or not, and its really frustrating. It just feels to me like the refs try to control how the game is, like give the away team a headstart, and in the end have the home team come back with chances. Could just be another conspiracy theory, but its really become a joke.
