Leafs still winless

Toronto dropped a 4-1 loss to the young and upstart Colorado Avalanche at home, dropping them to 0-5-1, and in the NHL's basement for the early going.

I still remember the 1993-94 season, when Toronto set a record for the most wins to start a year. Pat Burns was head coach, Dougie Gilmour was Mr. Everything and Felix "the Cat "Potvin was a stonewall in net.

What a reversal of fortune. Obviously, the Leafs are going to win a game soon, but when the Bruins started out like this in 1999-00, they ended up picking seventh. Even the seventh pick in the 2010 draft is going to yield a heck of a nice player.


  1. Hate is such a strong word! Maybe dislike or resent is more like it.

    Hey- I didn't trade the picks- I'm just covering them!

    Thanks for reading...
