Leaf Nation Woes

The start of the year is always promising,But the Toronto Maple Leafs and this notion that they would be competing for a playoff spot.Well two weeks into the season and the Leafs are win less,but Brian Burke even said that the Leafs will need at least five years to rebuild ateam that has been mismanaged so badly for the last ten years, trading away draft picks and prospects for players whos best days were behind them(they do sell good t-shirts),so that there is nothing left in the cupboard.Even though I dispise the Leafs,I feel that Burke will put together a decent team for many years to come.So be patient,suffer through some more pathetic seasons,and the Leafs will be back from the dead.
