The reality is, generally speaking, Toronto Maple Leafs fans know the game, we've watched hockey, especially the Leafs very closely for years. When a player isn't playing up to expectations, he will be called out for it. Other markets, where the fans aren't as learned as Maple Leaf fans, a highly paid player can take some nights off, and, it really isn't noticed. Leaf Nation holds our team accountable, we experience the shame, the ridicule, the bad Leafs jokes, and, for the most part, in spite of our team playing terrible hockey for the last number of years, we still cheer for them, and, many times, get in heated arguments defending them.

There's a feeling of abandonment by the fans, that our team continues to let us down. It's no wonder we get angry and frustrated watching this year's team break a record for road losses, and "fall off a cliff" every season.

You Leafs players better understand something, we won't sit quietly when you continue to embarrass our team, our logo and your fans. Most of you should be ashamed with your play this season, and, it is time alot of you moved on to another organization.

You will miss out on what it's like to play for the Maple Leafs when the team is winning, and when not winning, showing up for every game. The players from the last Stanley Cup teams are still honored by us after almost 50 years! 

So, if your goal is to just play out the season and then book tee times, you should never put on a Maple Leafs jersey again!

Nonis will only acquire draft picks and prospects, he doesn't want any "assets" that could possibly make the Leafs better this season

Clarkson had 26 points in 118 games as a Leaf. And only at 5.25 mil a year!  Buh bye, Dave!

I don't believe Nonis/Shanahan will make any moves at the dead line that will improve the Leafs this season. They want a serious lottery shot at McDavid

Nonis said Clarkson regretted that it didn't work out in is hometown of Toronto, in part because he turned down more money elsewhere.

Zach Sill gets Rick Vaive's old #Leafs No. 22. Lot of respect for a three-time, 50-goal scorer, huh?

CBJ initiated trade proposal with TOR. They wanted to lose Horton's financial commitment for player who couldn't play. CBJ wanted Clarkson.

@MaxwellHowe all a team needs to do is ice a team that probably won't win. I remember, years ago, when I had Flames season tickets, a team came to town that wanted a shot at finishing last or as near to last as possible. They iced about 7-8  players from their AHL team. Needless to say, Flames won that night
