Bassman and OS you're totally proving my point and you can't even see that.
I think you are proving their point FV.
And to quote every Leafs fan I've had the displeasure of working/talking with..."The regular season doesn't matter". Well, I would love to hear that excuse again after the Leafs missed the playoffs for TWO years in a row. I don't care what the reason is, they didn't make the playoffs. And if Buttman has his way, that is going to get more difficult when the league goes to 32 teams.
Like Bassman said, after years of abuse at the hands of Leafers, I can finally take pride that my team did what the Leafs still haven't done in 40 years; make the Stanley Cup finals. And no amount of Leafer hot air can take that away from the fans or the team.
