7:41 P.M. The young lads can’t handle the Toronto pressure cooker !!! …

Right now , this team looks doomed …

*MORBNOTE I ; NO KIDDIN’ !!!

Dumb penalties , frozen hands , wooden skates and a goaltender who is still not what he once was … As Schenn put it ; “ We’re embarrassed to go out there and play like that in front of our home fans … And get booed in our own building ” …

And just like that , there are no excuses left.

At the morning skate , coach Ron Wilson had crowed that ‘ all these rumours the last couple weeks have shown that they were nothing but rumours ‘ , as if it wasn’t Burke who took to the radio last week to say he was looking for a goaltender !!! … All these rumours , as if it wasn’t someone with the Leafs who leaked the fact the team had an offer for pending free agent Mikhail Grabovski !!! … Burke , of course , also claimed fans don’t like Wilson because he doesn’t kiss up to the media … Which really explains all those ‘ FI-RE WIL-SON ! ‘ chants Tuesday night !!! … And Wilson was the one strapping explosives to Jonas Gustavsson and James Reimer in public , day after day … Oh , and the trade deadline stuff … You want a confidence shaker , it’s not Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie …

“ I think the trade deadline is hard on players , but I think it’s murder on players in Toronto ” Burke said Monday … “ And we just had a serious debate whether next year we’re going to do this 10 days earlier so the players can relax ” …

The pressure of the trade deadline ? … Really ? …

This is TORONTO for God’s sake !!! … Burke knew the moment he took this job what he had to build … And what kind of players were required to build it … And four years later this is a viable excuse ?!!! … Schenn was asked if this team was fragile right now and he said ; “ I don’t think guys are feeling unbelievable about themselves , that’s for sure.”

*MORBNOTE II ; I figure they’ll flatline at 12th spot before they start their golf season !!! … Burke and Wilson are WAAAAaay !!! outta their league here in the heartland of hockey !!! …

Yet again !!! …

via Leafs are out of excuses.
