    I am still not convinced this team has learned anything over the past few years ….

    The EPIC collapse 2 years ago and missing out on the playoffs in the end.

    Boston game 7 last year

    The 3rd period breakdowns are very troublesome …and loosing leads should be a big concern still …this is almost the same CORE for both those events and it still seems as if they haven’t learned anything with how they play for 40 minutes every night !~!
    Kessel is on one of his droughts which has been my biggest issue with him along with the lack of physical play and standing around again when he doesn’t have the puck …bad habits have crept back into his OLD style of play again….10 games or more without a goal is a common thing for him and is not what a $8 million dollar player should be doing !
    Once again Leafs need to bring up Leivo and DeVane and STOP sitting Reilly.

    IMO
