What Could've Been…
This is one of the most dissapointing seasons I have witnessed in my time as a Leafs fan (I moved here from Detriot in 1999). I was disspointed that
every year the Leafs I was here I heard people saying the Leafs have a shot. Well, look what happened now.
The Leafs made a mistake with re-signing Belfour
to a multi-year deal, and stocking up on veterans
with 1-year contracts (thank god). This Leafs team
was built for the NHL an NHLPA to settle. They did
not settle and this is where they are now. If the
NHL abd NHLPA settled the Leafs would’ve had a shot (what isn’t new).
Belfour has been a dud, Tellqvist had proven he
will never be more than a number 2 goaltener in
this league and Aubin has showed he can take on
the responsibilty of being a #1 goalie. He came in
and did a great job with the depleted defense of the
Leafs and with the pressire of making the playoffs.
He must be re-signed or else some other team will
and us Leafs fans will be saying “Wow, why did we
let him go.” JFJ need to go out and get a goalie that
is able to split the time with Aubin. If the Leafs had
given him a chance, I garuntee you they would be
in the top 6 in the Eastern conference race!
