So after what can only be viewed as a successful road trip, in which the first win of the season was secured and Jonas made his triumphant return. The team earned 5 points in 5 games and for the most point looked pretty good in those games with some great late comebacks. And now we have the long awaited debut of one Phil Kessel.
Hopefully the team can continue to build on these small success and ride a new wave of confidence with Phil's debut. This isn't a task to great once you consider that they play Tampa (4-4-4), Carolina (2-8-3), and Detroit (5-4-3) this week. The Leafs should get at least 4 points out of this week, which would shot them up the standings and out of the basement.
I would also like to give a shout out to one Tomas Kaberle. He has really been the difference in the teams preformance over the last week. He currently is 2nd in the league in assists, 1st amoung D-men. His work on the power-play has been fantastic, and I've got to believe that the B's are kicking themselves alittle for not getting him when they could, though they made out pretty good anyways. Also Lee Stepniak has really turned his play around and made some great plays as well as some great hits. Keep up the great work guys.
Finally a word to all the Leaf Nation members, feel free to contribute to this site. If for some reason you are not allowed to post let me know and I will change the settings. Eventhough the team has sucked this group should be more active. This is a place where we can complain or celebrate our team, so be active and make the most of this.
